The Kansas City Chiefs have been hit by the NFL with a raft of penalties for illegally tampering with Jeremy Maclin during 2015's “legal tampering” period, and, frankly, it’s pretty insane. The penalties are harsher than any previously imposed, and the violation was one that undoubtedly happens dozens of times each…
When Andy Reid was fired by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2012, our own Tom Scocca called him a “powerful but slow football thinker,” and described what it was like to watch Reid’s offense slowly, painfully deny itself a shot at a Super Bowl victory:
Andy Reid has won 48 of his 101 challenges in his 17-year NFL head coaching career. He loves tossing that red flag onto the field, replay be damned. Around the two-minute warning in the first half of today’s game, a Chiefs employee smoothly took the challenge flag out of Reid’s pocket, so he wouldn’t use it out of…
We're more than a week past Halloween, but this dude's got the best costume we've ever seen.
Let's put to rest any lingering doubt about Husain Abdullah's intentions when he went to his knees and touched the crown of his helmet to the grass. Like every defensive back, Abdullah had thought long and hard about what he'd do if and when he scored.
Chiefs players might feel terrible this morning, but they pulled off a rather impressive feat last night. Despite losing Jamaal Charles, inarguably their best offensive player, to a possible concussion six plays into the game, Kansas City's offense still produced 44 points. It's a shame that the Colts scored 45.
It happens nearly every year and we're always surprised, but Chiefs-Colts was another insane NFL playoff game. After a close first quarter, the Chiefs jumped all over the Colts in the second quarter with 21 points and headed into the half—on an Andrew Luck interception—with a 31-10 lead. The Colts came all the way…
Offensive lineman Shawn Andrews spent all but one season of his NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles, and according to him, the locker room atmosphere was absolutely horrible. Andrews says that then-quarterback (and current awful Twitter user) Donovan McNabb was disrespectful and constantly demanded attention.
She even has the challenge flag out and ready. Excellent attention to detail.
Before Week 1, if you'd said that the Kansas City Chiefs would be undefeated halfway through the season, you'd have been chased up and down Blue Parkway by men with butterfly nets. Yet here we are, on the cusp of November, and the last undefeated team in the NFL plays at Arrowhead Stadium. How'd the Chiefs go from a…
It's been a terrible day so far. So God bless LSUFreek for creating this gif, which will bring us all back from the precipice of despair. This is truly humanity at its best.
Andy Reid had every reason to be happy. His Kansas City Chiefs were freshly 3-0 with a win over his former squad in Philadelphia, and the team building the kind of camaraderie that leads to a Gatorade shower in Week Three. Reid did not seem very happy, though, when talking to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio after the game.
I'm seeing double here; four Andy Reids!
I spent three years in the mid-aughts living in Wilmington, Del., i.e. the Hoboken of Philadelphia. From 2003 to 2006 I got to watch the Philadelphia Eagles in lieu of spending my autumn Sundays watching the season break somewhere inside Chad Pennington's upper body. It was a great time to be on the inside of…
McNabb, the greatest QB the franchise has ever known, will sign a one-day contract to retire as an Eagle at a ceremony in Week 3. In town that week? The Chiefs, and McNabb's longtime coach Andy Reid.
A lot of things are going to change under the new sheriff in town in Philadelphia, and on the day of the Chip Kelly's first practice, Eagles players were surprised to learn the training camp menu is a little different.
