Chiefs Defensive Line and Cheerleaders Spread Holiday Spirit at  Custom Nationals Jersey Operation Breakthrough

From storytelling to milk and cookies

The Kansas City Chiefs’ defensive line and cheerleaders helped spread holiday spirit Tuesday afternoon with the kids at Operation Breakthrough.

The excitement among the Chiefs and kids built throughout the afternoon as they moved from storytelling and crafts to milk and cookies.

“They look up to us, which is funny because I’m really just a kid like them,” Chiefs’ defensive lineman Chris Jones laughed. “Ju Men’s Washington Nationals Custom Majestic Alternate Scarlet Flex Base Authentic Red Jersey st to get to interact, have fun and be with them is important. It’s a special time of the year.”

And it’s that holiday spirit that the linemen hoped every child would feel throughout the rest of the season.

“You want everybody to feel happy and loved this time of year,” Chiefs’ defensive lineman Rakeem Nunez-Roches said. “You always want to feel like that, but definitely around this time of year, so when you’re able to give that it’s definitely a good feeling.”

Operation Breakthrough is an early learning center, which combines soc Personalized Washington Nationals Jersey ia Authentic Women’s Personalized Washington Nationals Home White Baseball Jersey l services, education and health, serving over 450 kids each day with the intent of making sure every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

“We have a campaign going on right now, Big Dreams Bright Futures, and I think having the players here really exemplifies that for the kids,” CEO of Operation Breakthrough Mary Esselman said. “They can see examples of when people work really hard towards a goal and also what happens when you see that goal achieved.”

The Chiefs have made working with Operation Breakthrough a priority over the past several seasons, and the defensive line’s efforts on Tuesday was another opportunity to do that.

“Last year we sent 90 percent of our kids ready for kindergarten,” Esselman said. “We can only do that when we have organizations like the Chiefs backing us up.”

And with some of the big personalities on the defensi Custom Nationals Jersey ve line, it was easy to be a kid again during the holiday season bringing joy to those around them.

“We [the defensive line] all love being around each other,” Nunez-Roches  Custom Washington Nationals Jersey said. “So we gather up all of our love together, come out here and filter it on to the kids.”

Chiefs Celebrate the Holiday Se Custom Nationals Jersey ason by Helping Those in Need

Several different players spent the early part of this week by supporting a variety of causes

The Kansas City Chiefs had time some off from practice early this week, but their efforts in the community were in full swing as several different players were scattered throughout the metro dedicating their time towards a variety of causes.

One of those players was wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who visited with patients at a local children’s hospital on Monday morning.

“I’m just here to lift their spirits and to be a role model in the community as much as I can,” Hill said. “When I meet these kiddos and they’re saying my name, it’s just amazing for me. It’s always been a dream of mine to be someone’s role model, so I’m happy and very blessed to be here.”

Hill went room-to-room surprising patients, from toddlers to adolescents, with a visit and an autographed football. Going above and beyond to help kids in need has been a priority for the second year wide receiver throughout his time in Kansas City.

“I have people in my family who deal with disabilities and it means a lot to me just to give back,” Hill explained. “People look at them and think about them differently, so I feel like when we come in and sit with them and lift their spirits, it means a lot. It’s definitely a big confidence booster for them.”

Making a difference elsewhere was rookie Custom Washington Nationals Jersey  tailback Kareem Hunt, who surprised a group of young athletes each with $125 gift cards to Dick’s Sporting Goods. Hunt then spent the rest of the afternoon shopping and hanging out with the kids.

“It means a lot to put a smile on these kids’ faces, especially around Christmas time,” Hunt said. “To make an impact in their lives with things like this really humbles me and puts a smile on my face, too.”

It gave the kids, who represented The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Kansas City, the Great American Basketball League and Johnson County 3&2 Baseball, a chance to celebrate the holidays with some athletic gear that they may not have been able to afford otherwise.

And for Hunt, it was an opportunity to give back to aspiring athletes – something he knows a thing or two about.

“It feels like I was just in their shoes playing peewee football and wanting to meet NFL players,” Hunt said. “It’s awesome to be around kids like this because I was them back in the day.”

A handful of Hunt’s teammates also devoted their time to kids in need on Monday, though in unfamiliar fashion.

Led by wide receiver Albert Wilson, a contingent of tailback Charcandrick West, wide receiver Chris Conley, safety Ron Parker, offensive lineman Cam Erving, linebacker Terrance Smith and tight end Orson Charles all waited on tables at Urban Table in Prairie Village, with pro http://www.ecustombaseballgears.com/Custom-Washington-Nationals-Jersey ceeds benefiting Wilson’s foundation.    

“Urban Table gave me an opportunity to shine a little light on my foundation tonight,” Wilson said. “I haven’t had the chance to do that here yet, so tonight I’m bringing the Albert Wilson Foundation to Kansas City.”

The players brought guests to their tables, took orders and even delivered food.

“It’s always good to come out and support a good cause like this with a bunch of great guys,” West said. “It’s easy to have fun with the guys while doing good things for good people.”

And the fact that so many of his teammates showed up to help went a long Authentic Women’s Personalized Washington Nationals Home White Baseball Jersey  way with Wilson.

“My foundation is a passion of mine outside of football, and we preach family in the locker room,” Wilson said. “For my teammates to come support me on their off day, it definitely means a lot to me.”

Another large group of Chiefs were busy making an impact just a day later, as punter Dustin Colquitt led a gathering of 15 players to assist with a FOX 4 “Love Fund for Children” shopping spree on Tuesday night.

Sixty children attended the event, each receiving $100 to spend and a chance to shop with the Custom Nationals Jersey  players.

“Love Fund puts this on and it’s just fun coming out here and seeing these kids every year and kind of making their day,” Colquitt said. “Christmas can be a joyous but also a very lonely time here for a lot of people, so we’re just excited to get out here with the kids again and give them the Christmas they deserve.”

Each event was just another example of the Chiefs’ ongoing dedication to bettering the lives of those that could use the help.

“This is a very close-knit, Midwestern town and it’s important that everybody is remembered not only over the holidays, but all year round,” Colquitt said. “They always pull for us, so it’s important for us to be out here showing them that we love their support, we love them and we’re wishing them a Merry Christmas.”

Alex Smith Rings in the Holidays with Gifts  Custom Nationals Jersey for the Chiefs’ Offensive Linemen

Each of Kansas City’s offensive linemen found gifts in their lockers on Wednesday morning courtesy of their quarterback

Christmas is right around the corner, and Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Alex Smith made sure that his entire offensive line was taken care of this holiday season.

In what’s become a December tradition, Smith placed gifts in each lineman’s locker on Wednesday morning as a way of thanki http://www.ecustombaseballgears.com/Custom-Washington-Nationals-Jersey ng them for their efforts protecting him all season long.

This season’s gift was twofold, consisting of a YETI cooler and a Gucci bag.

 Custom Washington Nationals Jersey 

“I try to take care of those guys by mixing it up every year and doing some different stuff,” Smith sai Custom Nationals Jersey d. “It’s hard to shop for that many guys who all have different tastes and things like that, but hopefully they’ll enjoy it.”

Differing tastes and all, opinions on the favorite between the two gifts were split.  

“Oh, the bag,” said offensive lineman Zach Fulton without hesitation. “But the cooler is nice too, I’ll use it for something.”

Fellow lineman Bryan Witzmann represented another point of view.

“I like the cooler because I’m more of an outdoorsy gu Authentic Women’s Personalized Washington Nationals Home White Baseball Jersey y,” Witzmann said. “I’ll flaunt the Gucci bag though.”

The cooler is an ideal gift for an outdoorsman such as Witzmann, as its famous for surviving even the toughest of conditions.

Bears, for example. 

Regardless of their varying personalities, the tradition is something that the linemen look forward to every season.

“It’s awesome,” Fulton said. “He does something for us every year and we’re always appreciative of whatever he gives us. We just try to return the favor by protecting him.”

And they’ve done just that, helping Smith put together the best season of his career.

Smith has already set career highs in passing yards (3,738) and touchdowns (25) all the while leading the NFL in passer rating (105.4).

Without the blocking up front, none of that would be possible.

“They’re always an underappreciated group on offense and those guys work really hard and take a lot of pride in what they do,” Smith said. “They’re a tight-knit group, so it’s just a small way to show my appreciation this time of year.”

That appreciation didn’t go unnoticed.

“It’s great we keep talking about the big bombs down the field and stuff, but it’s nice when your quarterback acknowledges that it starts with good protection,” said lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. “I think we’re back on track with the running game the past two weeks, too, so it’s good to have both Alex and Kareem (Hunt) giving us a little bit of credit for that.”

Which begs the question, will Hunt be getting the linemen gifts as well?

“You know, I may get them something nice,” the rookie tailback said. “But I’m still on that rookie contract.”

There’s another gift waiting for the entire roster if Kansas City can take care of business this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, as a win would wrap up a second-straight division title.

What We Learned From Wedne Custom Nationals Jersey sday’s Media Availability

Andy Reid, Alex Smith, Kareem Hunt and Tyreek Hill spoke to the media on Wednesday

CHIEFS HEAD COACH ANDY REID

Opening Statement: “As far as injuries go, Eric Fisher and (Travis) Kelce are sick, so they will not be at practice. Tamba (Hali) won’t practice today and Kevin Pierre-Louis has Custom Nationals Jersey  a shoulder and he won’t practice today. Look forward to playing the Dolphins. Again, we know they’re a good football team and so we’re going to prepare ourselves for that. Look forward to playing again at home, at Arrowhead. Should be a great crowd. Great football. We welcome the Dolphins in to that.”

Q: What are some areas you still see some work with Tyreek Hill?

REID: “I would tell you just consistent route running. He’s going to continue to work on that. It’s something he’s worked really hard at and has gotten very good at, but he can take it up even another notch there. It’s a matter of getting through that first year. Seeing all the different defenses, the secondary, looks that you’re going to get and have an opportunity to work those routes against those coverages.”

Q: Is it fair to say he was more raw than most receivers in the draft as he was perceived throughout the draft?

REID: “Well, yeah because they split duty with him. He did a little bit of receiver, a little bit of running back. So he had to learn some things there. I know Jeremy Maclin was very good for him. Greg (Lewis) has been very good for him. Greg and he both had that same type of game, that speed game, not the biggest guys, but both of them made a living off of that. Greg’s been a good asset for him.”

Q: How is he still able to get that distance between him and everyone else?

REID: “Some of it is learning how to run routes. He’s learned how to release and one thing people think they can do is bump and run him. You’ve got to be real careful of that. If you miss then he’s gone and he’s gotten a lot better at that. You want to come up and press him, there’s that consequence.”

Q: Are you surprised Alex (Smith) didn’t make the Pro Bowl?

REID: “Alex made it as a first alternate. Listen, I’m a big fan of his so I would tell you sure, I thought he should have been in. But that’s neither here nor there. He’s not. That doesn’t matter what I say. But he sure has had a great year.”

Q: Can you talk about Reggie Ragland and the development he’s had this season?

REID: “Reggie’s done a nice job. He’s getting better every week, more familiar with the defense. He brings a great attitude. When he hits you, he’s going to thump you a little bit. He brings a little pack with his punch.”

Q: How has the process been with Matt Nagy calling plays?

REID: “I think he’s done a nice job. It’s allowed me to kind of roam and do some things there. It’s worked well.”

Q: Does that give you more attention on defense?

REID: “You can just see. You get to see more of the game. But I’ve done it both ways and there are pluses and minuses to both. But I have a lot of trust in Matt, so that helps.”

Q: How much did you guys talk leading up to that?

REID: “He’s been with me a long time. He kind of knows how we go about business or how I go about business. At the same time, I want him to add his flare to it and there’s nothing wrong with that. Again, we want to run the offense and he believes in the offense, and I have trust there that he’s going to do a good job with it.”

Q: As a head coach, is it more exciting for you to wrap something up and have a week to rest some guys or prepare for postseason?

REID: “I think there’s got to be an urgency from everybody, I believe. So that’s what I felt coming in, when the players came in here yesterday, so I feel it today. But there has to be an urgency all the way around – you aren’t guaranteed of anything. So every game becomes the most important game. If it wasn’t before it surely is now. We put ourselves in this position, so we have to make sure we stay focused and that’s how I look at it. I can’t speak for anybody, but I mean I’ve felt that the last couple of days.”

Q: Do you feel like you’ll rest some guys?

REID: “I haven’t gotten that far. I have done that before. But I’m kind of narrowed in on this thing and I don’t want to go any further than that. Just want to stay with this (Miami).”

Q: What stands out with the Dolphins d Personalized Washington Nationals Jersey efense, particularly Ndamukong Suh?

REID: “First of all they are very good on third down, very good third down defense. Ndamukong Suh is a very powerful man and he is also smart. The whole defense wants to play on the other side of the line of scrimmage. So we take that into account. They’ve got good players. Good coaches and good players. We’ve got to have a good week of practice here, make sure we get everything down.”

QB ALEX SMITH

Q: Are you upset not being on the Pro Bowl roster?

SMITH: “No, I wasn’t even aware coming out. There are a lot of good players. I am pumped for the guys on this team that did make it and I am humbled to be a first alternate. There are some good QBs there. To be honest, hopefully we’re not even playing in it. It is kind of a funny thing but I am focused on my end.”

Q: Did you get some good stuff for the offensive line?

SMITH: “I try to. I try to take care of those guys and mix it up every year, do some different stuff. It is hard to shop for that many guys, lot of tastes and different things. Hopefully they will enjoy it.”

Q: How did you decide on the coolers?

SMITH: “Lot of brain storming. Last year they got suits, this year they got Yeti coolers.”

Q: Did you learn from someone to take care of the offensive line or is it just something you do?

SMITH: “A lot of different guys, they kind of do their own thing. They are always kind of the underappreciated group on offense. Those guys work really hard and take a lot of pride in what they do. They are a tight knit group. Just small token here this time of year, just try to let them know how much I appreciate them.”

Q: What happens if you don’t take care of them?

SMITH: “Hopefully they are still blocking, hopefully it doesn’t matter. I don’t know if those guys expect anything or what, but like I said, it is something small for them this time of year. They do put in a lot of work. A lot of sacrifice to keep me clean, let them know how much I appreciate that.”

Q: What has been different with you pushing the ball down the field this year?

SMITH: “Probably a lot of things. I do feel like for one, we have a lot of guys who can make plays down the field. I think Coach is putting us in good situations. And then, it is something we worked really hard. It is something I worked hard at, all of us putting in the time together. I think really going back to OTAs, especially this last year and then all of camp. This camp more than any other I felt like we got a lot of that work in. I don’t know if it was necessarily something that was conscious. It was just something that kept coming up and coming up and carried on into the regular season. Like I said, we have a lot of guys that can make plays down the field and really trusting them and giving them a chance.”

Q: Even if Tyreek isn’t the first option, do you see him one-on-one and immediately want to go to him?

SMITH: “I told him all week on that. It is obviously designed for elsewhere but, yeah I told him all week to be ready for that. Depending on the look, it definitely could be coming his way. I think that is something we are growing on, too. Everybody kind of seeing the same thing together. Him understanding that we were playing on the flip right here and it might be coming. Then being able to hit it. Everybody continuing to grow as an offense. Everybody on the same page, seeing the same thing, reacting to it the same way.”

Q: Does this Dolphins team seem unpredictable?

SMITH: “There has been a big spectrum. At times they have played some really good football and there are times you turn on the tape and every facet of the game they are playing at a really high level. And you can understand the expectations they had for themselves at the beginning of the season because of that. I felt like they dealt with a lot. Certainly playing at a really high level. “

Q: They are really good on third down defense, where have you guys gotten better at converting?

SMITH: “I think trying to stay out of the third and real longs. Those are hard versus any defense, let alone a good one. Minimizing negative plays and keeping it ahead of schedule so to speak there and executing when you need to on third down.”

Q: How is it during the week with Nagy and the play calling?

SMITH: “I think keeping the communication open all week as you talked about. ‘What if they play us like this?’ and ‘Are you thinking this?’ And I think it is an open communication with everybody including Nagy and Coach Reid. A lot of that allows you to play that game as it leads up to game day and you can play a lot of that out. There is a lot of unknown. You don’t totally know sometimes. So I think you  Custom Washington Nationals Jersey try to play a lot of that out and through the week and try to keep that communication open. I think that pays off on game day.”

Q: Do you think you are still in a good position going into the playoffs?

SMITH: “Yeah, we have put ourselves in a good position and a good situation right now and we have to go take care of business. Big opportunity in front of us this week. From day one, all the goals you set out, the first one is make the playoffs and win the division. That is what it starts with. We are in a situation to do that and we need to go take care of business.”

RB KAREEM HUNT

Q: How’s it feel to be going to the Pro Bowl?

HUNT: “It’s a great feeling. Great opportunity for me to get to meet some guys and experience something like this.”

Q: Where were you at when you got the news?

HUNT: “I was actually shopping with some kids last night and I got the news from Coach.”

Q: What does that mean to you to be included in that group of players?

HUNT: “It means a lot. The top guys get to go to something like this and this means a lot to me.”

Q: When did it become something that you thought maybe would be feasible for you to be able to do?

HUNT: “I just go out there and play football every game and really don’t look at the big picture. Just go out there and try to control what I can control and make plays and good things happen when you do that.”

Q: Can you explain how you’ve seemed a little more dynamic the last couple of weeks? Did you get some energy back? Did you get stronger with more carries? Is it just our perception?

HUNT: “It’s big games and I’m a guy who likes to compete and win and like to show up when the game’s on the line.”

Q: At any point in the season did you feel like you were getting heavy-legged or tired?

HUNT: “No, not really. I was just going out there, doing what I can do and when my number was called to get the ball I tried to make the most of it.”

Q: Andy said it was kind of a mixed bag. There were things he thought you could do better and things he thought the offensive line could’ve done better in that bad stretch. What were the things he talked to you about as far as some of the things you could’ve improved on?

HUNT: “It’s a couple things. I coach myself hard and I definitely feel like there was some things I could’ve done better in that stretch. Maybe being a little more patient and maybe even run a little bit harder.”

Q: How does the December Kareem Hunt compare to the September version?

HUNT: “I feel like I learned a lot about the game. Being able to recognize defenses and see what teams are doing and stuff like that. So more exper Authentic Women’s Personalized Washington Nationals Home White Baseball Jersey ience.”

Q: How is an honor like this something you share with your teammates, particularly the guys upfront who help you out the most?

HUNT: “I thank those guys. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be into something like this. Great feeling. I had to thank those guys and I look forward to doing something for them.”

Q: What are you going to do for them?

HUNT: “Maybe get them something nice.”

Q: Do you have anything in mind?

HUNT: “I got a couple things but I can’t really say.”

Q: Do you feel like you have to top what Alex (Smith) got them?

HUNT: “No. You know I’m still a rookie, in my rookie contract.”

WR TYREEK HILL

Q: Coach says that teams better be cautious if they try and bump and run. When you line up and you think there’s maybe a bump and run, do you lick your chops?

HILL: “I do kind of. There’s always that feeling when you know you’re about to get the ball. So yes, I do lick my chops a little bit.”

Q: You’ve made a lot of improvement as a receiver since you’ve been here. Is there something in mind that you’re focused on improving even more going forward?

HILL: “I would say my dedication to route running. I feel like I tend to sometimes try to depend on my speed too much and rely on my speed to beat corners when instead it’s all about technique and fundamentals. That’s what I’m going to work on this whole offseason. Coach Reid, G Lew (Greg Lewis) and those guys do a great job of telling me and teaching me the small things on how to reach the next level on how to be a great receiver. So I’m going to continue to work, continue to learn from the other receivers in the room and keep improving.”

Q: What are you proudest of in your improvement since you got here?

HILL: “I’m just proud to be here for real. It’s a blessing. Each and every day I get to fulfill my dream, but also be a role model to other people. So I’m the most proud of that. I love the game, I’m very passionate about the game, but I also get to help shape other folks lives.”

Q: Are there other guys around the league that you have watched or that you plan on watching in the offseason to learn some of those details and nuances of route running? Who do you watch?

HILL: “I would say Antonio Brown, but I’m more of a Stefon Diggs guy. So I kind of look at him, how he gets in and out of his cuts is tremendous. I kind of look at him and Antonio.”

Q: How much has Alex helped you reach your potential up until this point and your chemistry with him, how much has that been part of your development?

HILL: “Alex has helped me a lot off the field, and on the field he’s been a tremendous leader obviously. He’s going to do that. He’s our quarterback, he’s our leader so that’s his job.”

Q: On the touchdown the other night was that going to be your route when you broke the huddle?

HILL: “It’s my route regardless. It was designed play for someone else and Alex noticed that it was a bump and run and he made a great throw, offensive line protected well and I was able to get down the field and score.”

Q: So you were going to run that route anyway but the ball was supposed to go to someone else?

HILL: “Yes sir.”

Q: Should Alex have been one of the three quarterbacks named to the Pro Bowl team?

HILL: “Is this even a question right now? Yes. I do feel like Alex did get snubbed. He’s a Pro Bowl quarterback. Obviously, he’s a Hall of Fame quarterback as a (member of the) Chiefs. The stats are there so I do feel like he did get snubbed. He’s a great player.”

Q: Do you feel like you got snubbed as a wide receiver?

HILL: “Oh yes definitely. I was definitely upset. I made the Pro Bowl that’s good, but I feel like I made the transition to make it to the Pro Bowl as a receiver. That was one of my goals at the beginning of the year.”

Arrowhead Becomes First Professional Stadium to Sell Compostable Peanut  Custom Nationals Jersey Bags

And the Chiefs are nuts about it

After four years of collaboration between the Kansas City Chiefs, BASF, Aramark and Hampton Farms, Arrowhead Stadium became the first-ever professional sports venue to sell a pre-packaged compostable peanut bag this season.

The c Men’s Washington Nationals Custom Majestic Alternate Scarlet Flex Base Authentic Red Jersey ompostable peanut bag made its debut at the Bills game on November 26th being sold throughout general concessions and in-seat vending.

The idea for Arrowhead to sell a compostable peanut bag formed after the Chiefs Vic Custom Washington Nationals Jersey e President of Stadium Operations Brandon Hamilton attended a Green Sports Alliance summit in 2013.

Hamilton saw a presentation by BASF, a chemical manufacture, where they had developed a compostable peanut bag that was only sustainable for one day during the Seattle Mariners’ green week.

“As I was developing our green initiative program here, where a big part of it is post-event cleaning and increasing our waste diversion, we’re always looking for ways to do that a Personalized Washington Nationals Jersey nd part of that is getting all the products that we sell to be recyclable or compostable,” Hamilton explained.

And that’s when he thought about taking a crack at the peanut bag.

“The peanut bags are a product that nobody manufactured recyclable or compostable, so I started thinking about what it would take to get a peanut manufacture to give a product that was compostable,” Hamilton said.

Besides seeing the presentation by BASF in 2013, he also met with a representative from BASF to learn everything he could about the compostable peanut bag.

“I realized it was going to take someone with national buying power to make that request of the peanut supplier because they’re not going to do it for one venue that buys 15,000 bags a year,” Hamilton said.

Cue the next convention Hamilton attended with the International Association of Event Managers.

“Aramark was there and I met with some of their corporate people and started pitching them the idea,” Hamilton explained.

That led to setting up a meeting with Aramark, the Chiefs and BASF at Arrowhead where BSAF got on board and started working on the chemical compound to make the bag compostable.

Commence the long supply chain on developing a compostab Custom Nationals Jersey le peanut bag.

BASF makes a chemical resin that then goes to a company that makes film, they make the compostable film and then it goes to a company that prints on the film, then it goes to the packager that actually has a machine that forms the package, puts the peanuts in the package and seals it.

“BASF had to get all these film companies and printing companies on board and then Hampton Farms, who Aramark buys the peanuts from,” Hamilton explained. “So there are a lot of hands that touched a single package like this.”

For Aramark, the peanut bags bring them back to their roots.

The company’s founder began selling pe Authentic Women’s Personalized Washington Nationals Home White Baseball Jersey anuts out of his car in 1932.

“It’s just great to know it’s the history of what we do,” Aramark District Manager Tim Witkowski said. “We’re selling peanuts to people who are going to watch a game who may be here for the first time or who may be here for the hundredth time, that’s part of the experience here.”

“Knowing how hard we work every day to make that experience memorable and know the basis of it came from selling peanuts out of a trunk to selling you a peanut in a way that’s never been done before. It’s impactful,” Witkowski added.

Following the success at Arrowhead, there’s a lot of interest for the compostable peanut bag to be created nationally so other professional and collegiate teams will bring this into their venues.

“We’ve always tried to lead the way here in Kansas City,” Hamilton said. “We were at the right place and right opportunity to make this happen for us, but in the same term we see the same benefit not just for us, but for the country and for our environment.”

With the goal for Arrowhead to sell all compostable or recyclable products, BASF is already working on a product for compostable chip bags.

“We look to innovate here at Arrowhead and lead the pack,” Witkowski said. “We try to stay ahead because that’s what the fans of the Chiefs deserve and expect.”

And there’s nut’n wrong with that.

Is This the Best Season of Alex Smith’s Career?  Custom Nationals Jersey Stats Say Yes

The numbers are pretty clear

It’s the last thing he wants to talk about, but it’s hard to ignore the numbers.

For Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Alex Smith, this is the best statistical season of his 12-year NFL career, and it’s not particularly close. 

Smith has already eclipsed his previous ca Custom Nationals Jersey reer-highs in passing yards (3,738), which currently puts him sixth in the league, touchdown passes (25), which ranks fifth, touchdown-to-interception ratio (5:1 – 25 TDs, 5 INTs), which is the best in the league, and he’s also on pace to surpass his previous bests in terms of yards per attempt (8.02) and quarterback rating (105.4).

The numbers all say the same thing and that’s just a few of them, and this is still with two regular-season games left to play.

Furthermore, it’s important to remind everyone that it’s not like this ca http://www.ecustombaseballgears.com/Custom-Washington-Nationals-Jersey me out of nowhere. 

It was discussed daily at training camp, where Smith and Tyreek Hill were developing the chemistry that’s become a main storyline for the season. It was even written about multiple times, including in an article titled, “The Alex Smith-to-T Custom Washington Nationals Jersey yreek Hill Connection is Real,” which posted back on August 5.

They worked to get to this point.

But since the numbers started talking in games and the work during camp has translated over to when it counts, it’s undeniable—it’s Smith’s best season, even if he doesn’t want to discuss it while he’s living in the moment.

“I think it’s easy to look at stats and come to those conclusions,” Smith answered recently to a question of whether or not he thinks this is his best season. “Really, for us, that’s a time for the offseason. You can’t get in to all that. There’s no time right now. I do feel like offensively, as far as my involvement in what we are doing and how explosive we can be when we are operating, yeah, we are pretty effective (right now). 

“I am feeling pretty good about that.”

Smith set his personal yards passing record two weeks ago against the Oakland Raiders, and his touchdow Men’s Washington Nationals Custom Majestic Alternate Scarlet Flex Base Authentic Red Jersey n record was set last Saturday night against the Chargers.

The pass that gave Smith 24 touchdowns for the season, which surpassed his previous career-high of 23 that was set back in 2013 in his first year in Kansas City, was the 64-yard bomb to Tyreek Hill, who picked up his 11th touchdown of 50-plus yards in his career on the play as well.

“You just let it go,” Smith explained of the play. “There isn’t a ton of thinking with [Hill], which is nice, you just kind of let it go. He just has such an ability to track down footballs and make the play.”

“He almost overthrew me,” Hill laughed when asked about the play. “I went to the sidelines and gave him crap for it, but it was a good ball and I was able to run up under it.”

“I did think in the back of my head if I did overthrow him on that one,” Smith joked.

A bit later, Smith hit running back Kareem Hunt for a three-yard score, which gave him his 25th touchdown pass of the season. He’s now just five short of the Chiefs’ franchise record, which was set by Pro Footba Personalized Washington Nationals Jersey ll Hall of Famer Len Dawson, who had 30 back in 1964.

And while these records and numbers don’t mean anything to Smith right now, they are one way of explaining some of the success the Chiefs’ offense has had this year. 

But perhaps the one stat that illustrates Smith’s season more than any other is the fact that when the Chiefs have been trailing this year, Smith is stepping up—completing 72 percent of passes with 15 touchdowns and just two interceptions, while averaging 8.82 yards-per-attempt.

Smith and the Chiefs face the Miami Dolphins Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium, and a win will give them the AFC West championship for the second year in a row, which has never happened in franchise history.

Arrowhead Becomes First Professional Stadium to Sell Compostable Peanut  Custom Nationals Jersey Bags

And the Chiefs are nuts about it

After four years of collaboration between the Kansas City Chiefs, BASF, Aramark and Hampton Farms, Arrowhead Stadium became the first-ever professional sports venue to sell a pre-packaged compostable peanut bag this season.

The c Men’s Washington Nationals Custom Majestic Alternate Scarlet Flex Base Authentic Red Jersey ompostable peanut bag made its debut at the Bills game on November 26th being sold throughout general concessions and in-seat vending.

The idea for Arrowhead to sell a compostable peanut bag formed after the Chiefs Vic Custom Washington Nationals Jersey e President of Stadium Operations Brandon Hamilton attended a Green Sports Alliance summit in 2013.

Hamilton saw a presentation by BASF, a chemical manufacture, where they had developed a compostable peanut bag that was only sustainable for one day during the Seattle Mariners’ green week.

“As I was developing our green initiative program here, where a big part of it is post-event cleaning and increasing our waste diversion, we’re always looking for ways to do that a Personalized Washington Nationals Jersey nd part of that is getting all the products that we sell to be recyclable or compostable,” Hamilton explained.

And that’s when he thought about taking a crack at the peanut bag.

“The peanut bags are a product that nobody manufactured recyclable or compostable, so I started thinking about what it would take to get a peanut manufacture to give a product that was compostable,” Hamilton said.

Besides seeing the presentation by BASF in 2013, he also met with a representative from BASF to learn everything he could about the compostable peanut bag.

“I realized it was going to take someone with national buying power to make that request of the peanut supplier because they’re not going to do it for one venue that buys 15,000 bags a year,” Hamilton said.

Cue the next convention Hamilton attended with the International Association of Event Managers.

“Aramark was there and I met with some of their corporate people and started pitching them the idea,” Hamilton explained.

That led to setting up a meeting with Aramark, the Chiefs and BASF at Arrowhead where BSAF got on board and started working on the chemical compound to make the bag compostable.

Commence the long supply chain on developing a compostab Custom Nationals Jersey le peanut bag.

BASF makes a chemical resin that then goes to a company that makes film, they make the compostable film and then it goes to a company that prints on the film, then it goes to the packager that actually has a machine that forms the package, puts the peanuts in the package and seals it.

“BASF had to get all these film companies and printing companies on board and then Hampton Farms, who Aramark buys the peanuts from,” Hamilton explained. “So there are a lot of hands that touched a single package like this.”

For Aramark, the peanut bags bring them back to their roots.

The company’s founder began selling pe Authentic Women’s Personalized Washington Nationals Home White Baseball Jersey anuts out of his car in 1932.

“It’s just great to know it’s the history of what we do,” Aramark District Manager Tim Witkowski said. “We’re selling peanuts to people who are going to watch a game who may be here for the first time or who may be here for the hundredth time, that’s part of the experience here.”

“Knowing how hard we work every day to make that experience memorable and know the basis of it came from selling peanuts out of a trunk to selling you a peanut in a way that’s never been done before. It’s impactful,” Witkowski added.

Following the success at Arrowhead, there’s a lot of interest for the compostable peanut bag to be created nationally so other professional and collegiate teams will bring this into their venues.

“We’ve always tried to lead the way here in Kansas City,” Hamilton said. “We were at the right place and right opportunity to make this happen for us, but in the same term we see the same benefit not just for us, but for the country and for our environment.”

With the goal for Arrowhead to sell all compostable or recyclable products, BASF is already working on a product for compostable chip bags.

“We look to innovate here at Arrowhead and lead the pack,” Witkowski said. “We try to stay ahead because that’s what the fans of the Chiefs deserve and expect.”

And there’s nut’n wrong with that.
