SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

Chiefs QB Alex Smith leads comeback as Team Rice beats Team Sanders 22-21 in schoolyard-format Pro Bowl |

Kansas City linebacker Derrick Johnson — who had a big hit in the first half on Chiefs teammate Jamaal Charles — was selected as the game's defensive MVP for Team Rice. "I didn't expect it, but he's out there doing his thing," said Charles, who was knocked out of Kansas City's playoff loss to Indianapolis with a concussion. "I can't get mad at him — it's just about football and you've just got to be ready." "If you stand back, he's going to make you look pretty bad, so I had to go out and really give it to him," Johnson said. "I would never try to hurt my teammate at all, but compete a little bit." Johnson had nine tackles, including eight solo tackles. Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly had 12 tackles, including 11 solo tackles.

Pro Bowlers pull out tricks, hints of competition

Kansas City Jamaal Charles offered to line up at wide receiver when he was selected to the Pro Bowl. On Saturday, Drew Brees ran one play that looked a lot like an option, pitching the ball to Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray. On another play, Larry Fitzgerald ran the ball on a sweep along the right side. "Anytime you play for the probably the greatest player to ever put on cleats, it's a good thing," said Fitzgerald, who was assigned to Rice's team after the other seven receivers were picked beforehand.

Which Senior Bowl standouts can help the Chiefs? - Kansas City Star

Want proof? Well, look no further than Chiefs offensive tackle Eric Fisher for proof. Fisher won the most outstanding overall player award last year, and went on to be taken first overall in the 2013 draft. That likely won't happen to this year's recipient of the award, Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald, because he lacks ideal size at 6 feet and weighed 288 pounds. But after watching Donald dominate a vast array of offensive linemen over the course of three days, there's little doubt he deserved this year’s award.

Chiefs position analysis: running back - ESPN

It would be wise for the Chiefs to plan for the day Charles slows down or has another long-term injury similar to the ACL tear that ruined his 2011 season. They drafted Davis in the third round last season. His season started slowly and he had trouble with his long-standing problem with fumbles. But late in the season, Davis proved to be more than adequate of providing relief for Charles and capable of stepping in to the featured role. Then Davis broke his leg in the playoff game and Kansas City’s offseason plans at this position hinge on how quickly he will return. If Davis won’t be ready by the start of the regular season, the Chiefs need to find some help for Charles.

Move to free safety is unlikely for Chiefs' Eric Berry -

Given the hype around Berry, who was drafted fifth overall in 2010 out of Tennessee, he would seem to be a natural choice to fill Lewis' role if he doesn't return to the Chiefs. Berry is coming off a strong 2013 season in which he spent most of his time as a linebacker on passing downs and finished with a Pro Football Focus grade of 14.5, which ranks fourth among all safeties. But there is some doubt as to whether he fits the bill as the Chiefs' version of Seattle's Earl Thomas, whose sideline-to-sideline speed and ball skills make him an irreplaceable piece for the NFC champion Seahawks, one the Chiefs perhaps missed most this season.

Help me find a 1993 Kansas City Chiefs song - Straight Dope Message Board

In 1993, a band called Funk Motif wrote a rap song to support the Chiefs in their playoff run. It was called "We're Gonna Win". It was played in heavy rotation, particularly on KPRS. We are trying to track down a copy of the song. The radio station hasn't been replying, I was hoping the Teeming Millions might include some old KC fans... Thanks! P.S. They didn't win. They lost in the AFC Championship game to the Bills.

Super Bowl TV Audience Down 84% Per-Ad-Dollar Since 1967 - Forbes

In January 1967, when the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl I before the merger of the NFL and AFL, the game was broadcast by both CBS (which held the television rights to the NFL) and NBC (the AFL rights holder). The combined average television audience size for the two networks was 51 million and the average rate for a 30-second commercial (adjusted for inflation) was $279,000, yielding a TV audience-per-ad dollar of 183 people (see table at end of story).
