Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 10/1

Good morning, AP. Another day, another post full of Kansas City Chiefs news. The stories died down a bit today. Most stories are now focused on this weekend's games. There are a couple of good ones, though. Be sure to check them out.

But the part that clearly isn’t coincidence is that Moeaki is among several new toys for the Chiefs’ offense — weapons the team lacked throughout most of last season, and targets that ease pressure on quarterback Matt Cassel. Kansas City hasn’t been perfect on offense this season, even amid a 3-0 start, and Cassel has occasionally struggled. But with options like Moeaki, Dexter McCluster and Jamaal Charles, who needs perfect?

Allen's Chiefs soundly beat Davis' Raiders twice in 1993, victories that helped Kansas City win its first AFC West title in a dozen years and finish one game ahead of the Raiders in the standings. Allen rushed for a pair of touchdowns in those games (on goal-line carries, something Davis said Allen could no longer do) and finished with 15 on the season en route to being named Comeback Player of the Year.

Much like the 49ers, it’s tempting to continue the message of positivity here, but it wasn’t all good for the Chiefs. Left tackle Brandon Albert was poor. He surrendered a hit and a pressure on Matt Cassel, enough to push him into a negative grade (-0.3) for pass protection, but he was routinely exposed as a run-blocker, allowing his man to disrupt the play far too often.

When Chiefs coach Todd Haley decided to make several players — primarily veterans — honorary coaches this week, he did it so those players could rest during the bye week but still remain heavily involved in practice.

And after the Chiefs finished up their last day of practice Thursday before a three-day weekend, Haley deemed the experiment a success.

The Chiefs tried out three linebackers on Thursday, likely looking to improve their depth and special-teams units.

Thirteen-year vet Larry Izzo, eight-year pro Mark Simoneau and undrafted rookie Chris McCoy all were in Kansas City to work out for the team.

This year however, the season has started out extremely surprisingly. Actually, it’s more like an episode out of "The Twilight Zone." It’s like my daydreams have finally turned into reality.

My favorite NFL team, the Kansas City Chiefs, is among just three undefeated teams heading into week four. And since the Chiefs have a bye this coming weekend, they will remain undefeated.

The Chiefs have already nearly matched last year’s total wins of four. Why is this so farfetched and unexpected? Because even I, a die-hard Chiefs fan, didn’t see this coming.

Yet given all that, I think the Chiefs are perfectly constructed to beat the Indianapolis Colts.

Ok, maybe not perfectly constructed. It would help if the Chiefs had Joe Montana at QB instead of Matt Cassel but you have to play with the guys you’ve got.

While game planning for the Colts, the Chiefs need to look no farther than the Houston Texans.

The Kansas City Chiefs are off to a stunning 3-0 start, thanks largely to a run game that paces the league with 160.7 yards per game. They rate just ahead of the Atlanta Falcons and Pittsburgh Steelers, who are a combined 5-1. The top four passing offenses -- the Denver Broncos, San Diego Chargers, Colts and Dallas Cowboys -- are a collective 5-7.
