Some aspects of this article no longer apply because it was written a week ago. But it's a good read just the same. It's basically a reality check on all the overreactions that have happened recently.
The misconceptions and overreactions of the Chiefs offseason so far.

All the drama, over reactions are just white noise to me anymore, I barely hear them.  =P XD

I know we're a REALLY long shot to make the playoffs now, but if it's any comfort Inpredictable's algorithm still gives the Chiefs the 8th best GPF (Generic Points Favored) in the league. This is the number of points a team would be favored against a league average opponent at a neutral field.

Played with the ESPN Playoff Machine a bit. It looks like it's incredibly likely we make the playoffs if we win all three remaining games and actually still fairly likely if we lose one of them as long as that one isn't week 17 against the Chargers. Fortunately we should have the tiebreaker over most teams.
ESPN's NFL Playoff Machine allows you to predict the 2014 NFL Playoff matchups by selecting the winners of games from the season's final weeks to generate the various matchup scenarios.

We might control our own destiny, but what we have to control is the line of scrimmage. Our defense is really pretty good, but not so much at stopping the run - Steelers? That kid has three 200 yard games in a row. Plus it would be nice if our offense could score in the second half. Or get a few first downs. Or not turn the ball over.  Or run a two minute offense that makes some kind of sense. OK, I am done venting.

This is an incredible article about Priest Holmes. Absolutely a must read.
Priest Holmes broke the mold when it came to star running backs in the fantasy football era. But he also paid a price.

+Brandon Pollard to me is a novel. I don't care to read, at all.

Second. Don't be afraid to share anything you come across chiefs related. Some of us don't search for chiefs articles and relay on +Chiefs Nation​.

I recommend checking out more of the stories by The Race Card Project. They're really great, thoughtful discussions on race, but this one is particularly good. NPR must have agreed because they did three segments on it.
With his brown skin and long dreadlocks, Marc Quarles stands out in his predominantly white neighborhood. He's particularly aware of that, he says, when his biracial children aren't with him.

This is a great listen.
"The Black Hole" at Oakland Coliseum seats the most die-hard Oakland Raiders fans. Unfortunately, the light of victory has yet to shine on the team this season. Scott Ostler from the San Francisco Chronicle joins Bill Littlefield to discuss the winless Raiders.

John Oliver shows us just how terrible the tobacco companies (still) are and gives Marlboro a new mascot! A must watch.

The game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers will have a bigger impact on the Dolphins’ playoff chances than Miami’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. The Cincinnati Bengals and the Baltimore Ravens playoff chances actually improve with a Steelers victory over the Chiefs; this despite the fact that they are battling the Steelers for the division title. With nearly 150 percent of playoff “swing” at stake, the Chiefs-Steelers game figures to be one of the most important matchups this week.
  The Arizona Cardinals continue to get no respect. Despite an NFC best 11-3 record, Las Vegas has them as eight-point underdogs, at home, against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Similarly, ou...

A lot of the ones I ended up with had either Chiefs as 5th seed going against the Steelers as the 4th seed or Chiefs as 6th seed going against the Steelers as the 3rd seed.

If either of those end up being the case week 16 is a practice game for the playoffs.

I wanted to share this because I spent WAY too much time playing with the "Cumulative Margin of Victory" chart this weekend and thought you all may enjoy it as well.
The first 10 games of the NFL season are its exposition period -- we get to know the characters and themes that we expect to see develop as the race to the playoffs unfolds. This year, like nearly ...
