NJ Chiefs Fan is out today so I'm handling Arrowheadlines.
Enjoy today's Kansas City Chiefs news.
Quinn has teamed with fellow Notre Dame alum Jeff Faine and NFL Player Engagement to develop the new NFL Business Management & Entrepreneurial (BME) "Investment for Impact" program, which will be held at their alma mater Notre Dame - with college and university faculty, industry experts and a trade association to increase the breadth of offerings to assist players in choosing a post-NFL career field.
Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel denied a report that he has been told he would be fired at season's end.
"I have not,'' Crennel said. "I told you my future is week-to-week. What I've been concentrating on is Sunday's game. That's all I know about it. I don't deal with rumors. If you can put a name to the rumor, then that's something else. But anybody can start a rumor.''
The Colts will be visiting Arrowhead Stadium for the first time since 2004, which was one of those games that was exciting to watch if you love Offense, a 45-35 shootout win for the Chiefs. The two teams combined for nearly 1100 yards, including 472 passing from Peyton Manning, and 143 yards and 3 TDs from Fantasy Football Champion Priest Holmes. The last four meetings between the two teams have been in Indianapolis, including the 2007 Playoff game won by the Colts. Overall the Colts hold a 13-8 record against the Chiefs including the Playoffs, and since moving to Indianapolis the Colts are 10-3, including winning ten of 11 until last season's 28-24 loss.
As the Chiefs and their fans try to move on and look ahead toward 2013 and possibly the first pick in the NFL draft, song-writer Dane Callstrom has written the third and final ode to the team of his unplanned trilogy of parody songs chronicling the Chiefs substandard play.
He posted the "15 Weeks of Chiefsmas" on You Tube this week and manages to incorporate several notable Christmas songs into his mini-season review. "This has been an atrocious season. Our team is an embarrassment. You can't expect the fans of a 2-win team to stay quiet after getting blown out by the Browns and shutout by the league's 30th ranked defense, and we didn't."
Wayne is a crafty veteran that picked up tips from former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, and he is now passing those tips along to Luck to help him succeed. Even with Luck as his quarterback, Wayne has 97 receptions and 1,234 yards, which is good enough to be tied for second in both categories.
Charles, in his first extended public comments since the events of Dec. 1, said they never distracted from his preparation or his play on game day. He rushed for more than 100 yards in two of the three games since then.
"You've been seeing me playing every Sunday,'' Charles said. "You tell me. I've been playing football every Sunday. You see I'm going out there playing football.''
