NFL tickets bring you the amazing Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City is now 4-0, the latest NFl team to pull off a Phoenix-like rise from the ashes. Dig this: The Chiefs at 4-0 have now won twice as many games as they won all last season. The revival comes with the takeover of Andy Reid, the ex-Philly coach who got booted out of the City of Brotherly Love, and the arrival of Alex Smith after he got booted out of San Francisco.
Smith brings a steady hand at the quarterback position, a guy who can deliver the ball to the right place at the right time with jarring consistency. Not prone to flashy play, Smith is more along the lines of a workmanlike quarterback, a guy who doesn’t get ratted and most importantly, works the Reid offense with machinelike precision. Three touchdown passes in their 31-7 win over the New York Giants is a prime example of Smith’s value to this team.
For his part, Reid has instilled a work ethic and a plan, a system that places emphasis on the fundamentals. Faced with an Eagles team flaunting a new offensive system not seen in the NFL, Reid simply lined his players up man to man and dared the Eagles to beat them. “I know they’ll battle,” Reid said. “That’s what I know. There are a lot of things I don’t know but I do know this: We’re a tough bunch.”
That simple system and that toughness have carried the Kansas City Chiefs to a 4-0 record and they now share the AFC West lead with Denver. How they’ll fare when the play the Broncos is anyone’s guess but just seeing where they are now, in firm control of their own destiny and already being talked about as a playoff team, is a huge leap from the shambles of the last few years.
