Game Day!! I'm in the hotel just down the road from Arrowhead and I'm ready! Sadly, I'm assuming an ugly game, but you never know. Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Go Chiefs!!
History Is Not In Pioli's Favor from KC Star
We live in a world where a man can sky dive from outer space and Scarlett Johansson dates a journalist so, no, Scott Pioli turning the Chiefs into a championship organization would not be the craziest thing you could imagine.
But it would be nearly unprecedented.
The 1-9 Chiefs are 10-point home underdogs to the Broncos on Sunday, and looking over the rest of their schedule - vs. Carolina, at Cleveland, at Oakland, vs. Indianapolis and at Denver - it's hard to see the Chiefs going better than 3-13 in Pioli's fourth season as general manager.
Peyton's Now The Man In Charge In Denver from KC Star
No coaches are around. Just Manning and his new offensive teammates.

Eric Winston Says Kansas City Chiefs Fans Want Wins from NFL.com
Winston spoke out in October when fans cheered as quarterback Matt Cassell was taken off the field with a concussion. Winston told NFL Network's Michelle Beisner there's only one way to quiet the masses.
"Look, if they need to act out and wear black to games or whatever it is, if they feel they need to do that, then so be it," he said. "My goal is to win. And when you can start winning, then that stuff kinda setttles itself. When you don't win, then this is the kind of stuff that can happen. I don't pay attention to be quite honest with you.
Mailbag: Mike Glennon On Chiefs' Radar? from ESPN
Derek from Kansas City wants to know if North Carolina State quarterback Mike Glennon could be on the Chiefs' radar.

How many other teams in the entire National Football League would be willing to trade their roster for the one that Ryan is coaching right now?
