Chris Chambers appeared on the 810 WHB's Border Patrol this morning talking about the Chiefs and Chargers on Monday Night Football to open the season.
The combination of Monday Night Football and one of his former teams is a "double whammy" for him.
"No matter what the situation is -- it could be a happy ending there -- but for the most part you want to play well against them," he told the folks on 810 WHB's Border Patrol this morning. "You want to let them know what they're missing. Then you want to go out there and win the game to rub it in a little bit. That's just my mind set. I just can't help it."
Chambers had a season high seven catches against the Chargers last year. "I know their personnel extremely well," he said, "and I know what they like to do and what they don't like to do."
The fact that this will happen on Monday Night Football is all the sweeter. "You get a chance to showcase your team and showcase your talent on a national level," he said. "You know all your friends and family are watching."
By the time Chambers came to the Chiefs in 2009, the season was pretty much a lost cause so he didn't see the atmosphere at Arrowhead that a lot of folks remember.
"I'm looking forward to playing at Arrowhead with that atmosphere I've been hearing about. People were coming up to me and saying 'It used to rock [at Arrowhead]'. Now we get the chance to play in an atmosphere that hopefully we can play in for the remainder of the season."
I'd say the Chiefs record will determine whether Arrowhead continues to rock into November and December.
