Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 10/22

Happy Friday! A short Arrowheadlines this morning. There wasn't a lot of Kansas City Chiefs news out there. The bright side is we'll all be getting a little more done at work today since we have less to read. Go Chiefs!

Arenas is a Chiefs rookie, 22 years old, quick and tough. He’s a cornerback and kick-return specialist, and he’s good at that. Maybe the thing he’s best at, though, is bouncing back. That’s what he did when he was 13, when he first got that scar. A cardiologist discovered that young Javier had been born with a double aortic arch, a congenital disorder in which the aorta is forked near his heart, and the arches were suppressing his windpipe.

Two reasons why the Chiefs are 3-2 and in first place: they lead the league in rushing yardage differential, and they lead the league in penalty yardage differential. In short, they dominate the line of scrimmage and don't beat themselves.

Start 'Em

Chiefs (vs. JAC): As we told you last week, the Chiefs DST was due for a letdown with a tough matchup at Houston. The unit managed just two Fantasy points on two sacks with no turnovers, but they should improve in this matchup. The Jaguars offense is mediocre at best when Garrard is the starter, but the potential for Bouman to be the No. 1 option should help the Chiefs DST thrive. They started the season with three games in a row with double digits in Fantasy points, and they have the chance to reach that mark again this week. Jacksonville managed just 249 yards of total offense last week against the Titans with three interceptions and a lost fumble, and the Jaguars scored only three points. Look for Jacksonville to struggle again, and the Chiefs DST is worth starting in all leagues.

The Kansas City Chiefs got good news Thursday when defensive end Tyson Jackson (knee), right tackle Ryan O'Callaghan (groin) and receiver Chris Chambers (finger) were taken off the injury report. 

The big news here is that Jackson should be ready to play extensively Sunday against Jacksonville.

The main reason for the Chiefs reemergence is a nose bloodying defense. The defense is led by DE Tamba Hali, ILB Derrick Johnson, CB Brandon Flowers and S Eric Berry. Those core four players have the Chiefs defense registering 10th in the league in total defense.

Surprises and Disappointments from Real GM Football

Charlie Weis, the former Notre Dame head coach and current offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs, coached with Chironna at Morristown and credited Chironna for a lot of what he's accomplished as a coach.

"John Chironna taught me the game of football," Weis was quoted as once saying. "(Bill) Parcells and (Bill) Belichick taught me how to navigate at the professional level, but Chironna taught me the game."
