Well now, 3-0. Can’t say I thought we’d be here right now. This weeks links are not surprisingly filled with optimism and will either look prophetic or absurdly hilarious in about 6 weeks. Lets all hope for the former. So if you are reading these in the evening, take a break from the kids/wife/girlfriend or all three and let me be your spiritual guide into the world of the intertubes Kansas City Chiefs style. If you are reading these during the workday, good for you, stick it to the man.

I like to try and find links to good Chiefs articles outside of the same old, same old. This weeks game article comes from the Blue Springs Examiner.
Rise And Shine, Chiefs Fans It’s A Brand New Day
By Sam Mellinger
The Kansas City Star columnist does his optimism thing with the Chiefs. It’s still only three games. I think we should get excited, but there are still big holes on this team in my opinion.

Over at Arowhead Pride, Chris runs the numbers to see where the Chiefs rank in a number of statistical categories. The big one? Chiefs rank #1 in rushing yards.

Two weeks in a row Shaun Smith is accused of getting up close and personal to an O-lineman’s junk. Frankly he can lovingly caress it on national tv if he continues to play the way he did last week.
I’ve linked this before, and probably will link it every week. This kind of analysis is rare around the NFL blogosphere, and it is very well executed here. Brewsaf breaks down the Chiefs offensive line. Prior to the season I predicted Ryan Lilja to be a standout player on the offense. According to the numbers in the article, my prediction is looking good.
It was awesome all around, it was a huge play. There’s no reason not to watch it again.

Yes, the 49ers offense looked terrible, however the Chiefs defense looked pretty darn good. Regardless, firing an OC after 3 games seems like a losing proposition to me. Who would have thought that the Chiefs would be leaving a path of destruction like this around the NFL this season?
By Shan Sheriff
Here’s hoping for a speedy and full recovery from the Chiefs OC. Lots of people were probably saying it took a lot of gall to call some of the offensive plays on Sunday, apparently they were right.
