Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 10/3

New, comments

Boo, bye week. Am I the only one that believes the Chiefs have a bye this week because of the race? If we were still playing like last year, a game up against the race would be blacked out for sure. Anyway here's your Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy.

When Wiegmann re-signed with the Chiefs this past offseason, a young teammate approached the 37-year-old veteran and asked which stadium was the NFL’s toughest. The loudest, rowdiest, craziest stadium he’d ever experienced. Wiegmann said Arrowhead, and the youngster had a hard time believing it.

The Chiefs’ core, players who have been in the league three seasons or fewer, have never known Arrowhead as anything more than a place where a ticket buys little more than disappointment. They heard the stories about how Kansas City had embraced football and how Arrowhead’s parking lots used to be packed on Sundays. But reality didn’t match the legend.

Chiefs again feel a city's devotion from KC Star

Last year: The arrival of Scott Pioli and Todd Haley touches off an organizational earthquake in Kansas City, causing a series of small uprisings by some players from the previous regime.

This year: With the Chiefs 3-0 and entering their bye week, Haley decides to pass control of the club to the players, handing 14 of them whistles and visors and practice scripts, and having them coach their teammates during the week off.

What a difference.

To the Kansas City Chiefs, who have started 3-0 and already are being anointed this year's amazing NFL turnaround team. Well, good for them. But not so much for Lions fans, who again can only watch it happen to another team and cling to saying, "See? It can be done," while simultaneously wondering if it's ever going to be their turn.

A total of 108 teams, including three this season, have started 3-0 since 1990. But the Chiefs are just the sixth team to do so after winning no more than four games the season before. A quick review of three of the other five teams:

2006 Saints: After going 3-13 while playing without a home because of Hurricane Katrina, they reached the NFC championship game.

2002 Panthers: Carolina lost its last 15 games in 2001, went 7-9 in 2002 and reached the Super Bowl in 2003.

1999 Rams: St. Louis won the Super Bowl with the Greatest Show on Turf offense after going 4-12 in 1998.

Since the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs had an open date this weekend, Chiefs rookie and former Ole Miss star Dexter McCluster was in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday. McCluster has two touchdowns in his first three games for the unbeaten Chiefs.

"You could see heading into training camp this July that nobody else was on the roster," said Britton's brother Dustin, who is in his sixth season with the Kansas City Chiefs.

"It was (Broncos special teams coach) Mike Priefer stepping out and saying, 'This guy is good enough to be our guy; we don't need any competition there.' "

Getting to this point hasn't been easy for Britton. He is the fourth member of his family to punt in the NFL - joining Craig, Dustin and cousin Jimmy, all of whom also were Vols - but he may have had the toughest path.
