Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 8/28

Good morning, AP! First of all, you'll see in the first article that Sheffield has regained some movement. The rest of your Kansas City Chiefs news awaits below. Read and enjoy.

More important to the Chiefs, they turned a 10-0 deficit into a 14-13 lead when both teams used their starters. They climbed back into the game after their defense unleashed a fury the Chiefs have seen only from their opponents in recent seasons.

The Chiefs sacked Philadelphia quarterbacks five times. Linebackers Demorrio Williams and Andy Studebaker had two sacks apiece, and defensive lineman Dion Gales added one.

Quarterback Kevin Kolb was inefficient in the first half,DeSean Jacksonspent all but the first play out with an injury, Jeremy Maclin developed a case of the dropsies, Jason Peters saw more yellow, Brent Celek was almost invisible and Trent Cole was lost to an ankle injury.

The only thing that rescued the Birds from the game at Kansas Citywas a late garbage time 80-yard TD drive by third-string QB Mike Kafka.

And the new Arrowhead tastes good enough. The food is pretty good, much better than before, and in the name of research and public service we’ll tell you about it in a minute.

But you know what?

The new Arrowhead doesn’t feel nearly enough. It doesn’t sound nearly enough.

That’s the big thing missing here. And that’s a problem that bricks and mortar can’t fix.

McCluster, in the first home game of his professional football career, showed the ability to do more than absorb a big hit. McCluster rushed for 47 yards i eight carries and caught three passes, though those netted zero yards.

McCluster saved his best work for the return game. He had a 41-yard kickoff return in the first quarter and later brought back a punt for 14 yards.

Studebaker’s play was outstanding. Haley had said that the Chiefs needed help from their second- and third-team players, and Studebaker made a statement Friday night that, as long as he’s a backup, he will be a consideration for opposing offenses.

"When opportunities arrive and coach puts us in those positions, it’s up to us to make those plays," Studebaker said. "As a unit, we made progress."

Defense Buckles Down from KC Star


When outside linebacker Andy Studebaker sacked Philadelphia’s Kevin Kolb in the second quarter — the second time Studebaker got to Kolb on Friday — it seemed to energize the Chiefs and the home crowd. The Eagles punted, and Kansas City responded with a 16-play, 63-yard drive that ended with a touchdown.

Just when it seemed the Eagles answered their preseason red zone woes Friday night, the second quarter arrived.

And it was followed by the third quarter.

There was enough concern in the mind of Andy Reid that he kept the first team offense on the field for the beginning of the fourth quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs, who didn't defend real well in going 2-14 last season.

Comeback Win Over Chiefs Covers Up Eagles Problems from The Delaware County Daily News

The Kansas City Chiefs are being revived so I'm holding off with being too picky, but I'm not into forever. It took time to dig the hole, so now the Chiefs need time to climb out. Make it easy on yourself. Take preseason for what it is, because it's about assembling all 53.

But! No amount of lipstick can cover what fans saw in the first half of last night's game.

Fumbles, picks and Eagles oh my!

Too many incompletions. Too many three and outs. Not enough running plays.Special teams is slowly improving. The offense was atrocious, but hey the defense looked great for the third week in a row. Those are the fans sentiments coming out of Eagles 20-17 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Crew will celebrate the legacy of team founder Lamar Hunt, one of the original investors in Major League Soccer, by unveiling a bronze statue of him in Crew Stadium plaza today before a game against FC Dallas.

Coach Robert Warzycha, the Crew's longest-tenured employee, has fond memories of Hunt, who died of complications from prostate cancer in 2006 at age 74, but his most vivid memory of him has nothing to do with sports.

Carl and Lori, who have been so involved in community and charity events in our Kansas City area the past many years as Carl served as President and CEO of the Kansas City Chiefs, stepped forward and donated two tickets to the Super Bowl which will be played in February 2011. We sold those tickets during the auction of the Cattle Barons Ball for $3,400. Thank you so much Carl and Lori.

The Eagles moved to 2-1 this preseason by beating the Chiefs, 20-17, but looked nothing like the group that, with Kevin Kolb at quarterback in Week 3 of last season, piled up 420 yards of offense and pounded Kansas City, 34-14.

The first-team offense, which played three quarters and the first play of fourth, managed only 13 points and 171 total yards against a Chiefs team that won only four games last season.

Another player to watch Is Flowers, who the Chiefs selected in the second round of the 2008 draft. While Flowers showed some impressive characteristics in his rookie season, he really matured in his second year. He tied with Cincinnati's Leon Hall(notes) for fifth in the NFL in passes defensed, and bumped his interception total from 2 to 5. With Berry playing center field in that defensive backfield, Flowers' Pro Bowl potential may finally be unlocked.

Three weeks into the National Football League pre-season, and Bahamian Devard Darling is yet to be picked up by any of the league' s 32 teams...

..."I had a workout with the Texans last week, but we are still waiting to see how it goes.

"There are still teams, like the Texans, and the Rams are still interested. Things are happening so I can go in an instance, that is what I am waiting on.

Tonight, all Eagles players put their lives in the hands of the football gods. For the first time, we face...Eric Berry. He is a rookie Safety for the Chiefs, but that's like saying that the USS Nimitz is a boat with some dudes on it. Eric actually has just as much firepower as an active carrier. The difference is that he can also kill you with kindness. He once broke my right arm with a thank you card. Eric could offer to help DeSean Jackson up after a tackle and accidentally rip him to shreds.
