Chiefs have a special feeling about showdown with the Steelers | The Kansas City Star

The circumstances and consequences for the Chiefs on that day were strikingly similar to Sunday’s noon game at Heinz Field. The Chiefs had to beat Pittsburgh in the Dec. 21, 1986 regular-season finale in order to make the playoffs. And that’s exactly what they did in one of the most remarkable performances in franchise history. The Chiefs scored all three touchdowns on special teams for a 24-19 win that clinched the franchise’s first playoff appearance in 15 years.

Dorsey thinks Fisher will be a great left tackle — great, not good — but needs some time. From the first day the Chiefs drafted Fisher, Dorsey has thought about Alt. The similarities are striking, when you think about it. Two tall, athletic, raw prospects taken in the first round. Both relatively new to the position. Both with a lot of learning to do, and even more potential. Alt struggled early in his career, and then made two Pro Bowls and played long and well enough that his name is in the Chiefs’ Ring of Honor — right there between Derrick Thomas and Gary Spani.

The Chiefs have been particularly creative with how they’ve used Thomas and Sherman, who have made a habit of moving around and playing multiple spots on the field. "Once the game sort of unwinds and you show those personnel groups, show those formations," Pederson explained. "After about two or three snaps like that, you kind of get an idea of how the defense is attacking this certain group or this certain formation."

John Dorsey likes to say that it takes several years before a verdict can be returned on a draft pick. There is a learning curve for rookies, often a steep one. The pro game is faster, players are stronger and the plays more complex. If that's the case, the first two draft classes of the Chiefs' general manager -- panned so often by fans and pundits -- may actually be right on track.

5 questions with SBN Kansas City Chiefs site Arrowhead Pride - Behind the Steel Curtain

How has Phillip Gaines been so far this year? The Steelers selected him in the SBN Blogger's Mock Draft with their second round pick, and we recall being taunted for the selection. I remember sitting in training camp talking with some other Chiefs media folks and many of us agreed that Gaines was so far behind that he wouldn't be a contributor at all this year. I thought his ceiling in his rookie year would be the fourth or fifth cornerback. Just trying to stay active on game days. He looked like a rookie during training camp. Turns out, I was wrong!

Jamaal Charles hasn't started career decline - ESPN

From foot problems in August and September, to current knee and ankle issues, to the strange situation in October when he described having several concussion symptoms without having a concussion, it’s been a weird season for him. But Charles hasn’t reached the point where his skills are declining. You can’t possibly have watched Charles run in recent games and come to that conclusion.
