Chiefs Getting Lots Of Attention On ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown

The Kansas City Chiefs have been getting plenty of attention on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown.

It started with Ed Werder's report on Casey Wiegmann, the 2009 Broncos and how the Chiefs are looking at 3-0.

Werder was in Kansas City this week and had a segment on the Chiefs bye week player-coaches. It included interviews with Mike Vrabel, Thomas Jones, Brandon Flowers, Brian Waters and Todd Haley.

The Sunday NFL Countdown staff also spent a few minutes answering the question: Are the 3-0 Chiefs for real?

Keyshawn Johnson: "They're as real as a slice of bread."

Cris Carter: "When they hired a young offensive minded coach in Kansas City in Todd Haley, they got it right." Examples: Mike Holmgren, Jon Gruden, Andy Reid and Mike Shanahan.

Tom Jackson: "At some point the QB's got to play."

Mike Ditka: "Are they for real? You better take them for real."

Other than the Larry Johnson incident, I can't remember seeing this much Chiefs talk on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown since the 2006 playoff season.
