Jason Whitlock Talks Chiefs One More Time On 'The Explanation'

Jason Whitlock, formerly of the Kansas City Star, completed "The Explanation" on 610 Sports and Metro Sports.

The entire thing was....interesting, but definitely entertaining.

At several points, he broke down emotionally. Despite his public persona, I think this is a very, very big deal to him and that showed.

The whole thing lasted three hours and he did, a few times, talk about the Chiefs.

One more time, here's Jason Whitlock on the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Not much Carl Peterson talk at all. He referenced Peterson a few times as someone he criticized and recounted one story alleging that Peterson had police kick him out of the hospital when he went to visit Derrick Thomas after the accident.
  • He doesn't think the Chiefs are going to be very good this year. He said Todd Haley's demeanor has improved but there are too many familiar faces from last year.
  • "Ty Law? It was one of the many mistakes I made as a sports columnist. Ty Law and Chester McGlockton. They signed Chester McGlockton and I predicted 16-0 on that. They had the dream team defense and I thought no one would score on them."
  • He says if Scott Pioli builds a winner in Kansas City he'll be praising him.

"It's sad man," Whitlock said. "I've been a local newspaper columnist for a long time and that's all I ever wanted to be."

We'll post audio of the interview when it's available.
