Converting Chiefs Fans

Pretty slow day around here....

Jeff Fisher is building quite the staff in St. Louis. After hiring Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator, Fisher hired former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

I bring this up because I saw an interesting note on CBS Rapid Reports about Williams:

Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams grew up in western Missouri and all of his extended family is still in his hometown of Excelsior Springs, which is near Kansas City. Williams said many family members are Chiefs season ticket holders, but he "looks forward to swaying them in the other direction."

OK, which Chiefs fan is really gonna convert to the Rams? I wouldn't agree with it but I could see the Patriots, Giants or some other front-runner team.

For me, I would obviously never switch allegiances, but I've always had a soft spot for the Bills. Smaller market. Old school tradition like the Chiefs. And they know about blowing it in big games.

(And in related content, Patrick Allen is talking about which divisional teams you definitely don't have a soft spot for.)
