Be a part of our film for Marty Schottenheimer

post

Just like you, we were shocked and devastated to hear the news, not long after we saw him at Arrowhead Stadium welcoming Tony Richardson into the ring of honor, that former Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Marty Schottenheimer has Alzheimer’s disease. We grew up in the 90’s during the rebirth of Kansas City Chiefs football ,thanks to Marty Schottenheimer, and that era will always hold a special place in our hearts as I’m sure it does for every Chiefs fan.  Continue reading

post

In last night’s Sunday Night Football game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers, running back Adrian Peterson had his ankle stepped on from behind as his knee twisted. When the pile was uncovered, last years leading rusher was clenching his right leg writhing in pain. He couldn’t put any weight on it as he hopped back to the locker room. Here is the video of him in the locker room after the game:  Continue reading

ESPN’s Louis Riddick has given up on Alex Smith

post

After the Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football it was clear that Alex Smith is just too safe and risk averse to hang with the NFL’s elite quarterbacks in the game. ESPN’s Louis Riddick, a former NFL player and scout, had been a staunch Alex Smith defender, but he is now done with him after that Monday night game. We here at the Great American Sports Network knew this was the quarterback the Chiefs were getting and said as much when the trade was announced sending Alex to Kansas City for a 2nd round pick, which ended up being two 2nd round picks due to a conditional pick. Here is our podcast after the trade and Louis Riddick after the Monday Night Football game.  Continue reading

NFL Week 5 Preview and Predictions

post

As we enter week 5 of the NFL season we still have several undefeated teams in the Patriots, Packers, Bengals, Broncos, Panthers, and Falcons who all look to keep the good times rolling. It looks as if the Bengals will have the toughest challenge to reach 5-0 as they take on the Seattle Seahawks, who look like a different team with Kam Chancellor roaming around in the secondary. There is one team who has yet to win a game and that would be the Detroit Lions who maybe should have beaten that Seattle team if not for Kam Chancellor and the refs ruining what would have been a go-ahead score with under 2 minutes left in the game. Thursday Night Football featured an AFC South match-up between the Colts and Texans. Behind an ailing 40 year old quarterback, the Colts escaped with a big division win as Houston continues to flounder amidst a baffling quarterback carousel between Ryan Mallet and Brian Hoyer. There are plenty of intriguing match-ups this weekend and since that Colts vs. Texans game wasn’t one of them; let’s preview the rest of week 5 and pick the winners.  Continue reading

2015 NFL Predictions

post

No NFL season is the same as the next due to injuries, free agency, the draft, trades, and players retiring (ask the 49ers about this one) so we look at the changes teams have gone through and predict what the upcoming season will hold. Can Peyton Manning stave off old age for another go at a championship? Can Tom Brady come back from the deflate gate mess and suspension and pull a rabbit out of his hat one more time for Super Bowl win number 5? The Bills and Jets had impressive off-seasons, but will that translate into any more wins, especially since they’re lacking in the quarterback department? We will go through our 2015 NFL predictions and try to make sense of the season ahead.  Continue reading

Bulls Fire Tom Thibodeau

post

The Chicago Bulls have fired head coach Tom Thibodeau who is owed $9M over the final two years remaining on his contract. Tom is a well respected coach with a great basketball mind, but his old school mentality of playing his starters too many minutes is what ultimately did him in. Continue reading

Chiefs Rewind: MNF at Denver Oct. 17, 1994 (140 Photos)

post

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Marty Schottenheimer and his quarterback Joe Montana were both winless in Mile High Stadium as they stood at a combined 0-10 inside those unfriendly confines. John Elway had been a thorn in the Chiefs side for years by posting 6 game winning drives against the division rival (1 in each of the last 5 years). It wouldn’t be an easy feat for the Chiefs to overcome with a raucous Monday Night Football crowd, defensive tackle Dan Saleaumua out with a sprained knee, and Derrick Thomas being benched for the start of the game for being an hour late to a team meeting earlier in the week.  However, this would prove to be night that Chiefs fans wouldn’t soon forget as all appeared to be lost after a late John Elway scramble for the go-ahead touchdown, but never count out Joe Montana. Joe showed the world that he didn’t leave the “Montana Magic” in San Francisco and he had plenty left to give to the Kansas City Chiefs. Joe Montana went under center with 0:13 left in the game and found Willie Davis in the corner of the end zone to win 31-28 and end his and Marty Schotteneheimer’s winless streak at Mile High Stadium.  Continue reading
