Chiefs’ Off Joe Carter Jersey ensive Linemen Kick Off the Chiefs Kingdom Blood Drive

Mitch Morse, Mitchell Schwartz, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Bryan Witzmann stopped by the Community Blood Center on Tuesday afternoon

A chance to keep on living is the best gift many throughout the Kansas City area will receive this holiday season.

The Kansas City Chiefs partnered with the Community Blood Center of Greater Kansas City to provide just that this week as part of the 20th annual Chiefs Kingdom Blood Drive, and the Chiefs’ offensive linemen stopped by to kick things off on Tuesday.

“We were able to come out and meet some pretty incredible people today,” said center Mitch Morse. “The c Joe Carter Jersey ool thing about this is that you don’t really have to go out of your way and do some extraordinary measure to give back to people who really need blood and could really use your help.”

The Chiefs Kingdom Blood Drive has grown tremendously since its inception in 1998, which collected 359 pints of blood in one day. The drive is now a weeklong event at all six Community Blood Center locations scattered throughout the metro.

“It’s the most important thing you can do to help our community,” said David Graham, the Executive Director of the Commun Mitchell and Ness Joe Carter 1993 Toronto Blue Jays Cooperstown Collection Authentic Light Blue Throwback Jersey ity Blood Center. “Every unit can save up to two lives, there’s no other source for that other than people coming in and volunteering to donate blood.”

The drive contributes to the nearly 200,000 blood products the Community Blood Center provides to over 60 area hospitals every year, and the players’ presence drew additional volunteers and donors th Men’s Mitchell and Ness Vintage 1993 Joe Carter Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Throwback Jersey at may not have stopped by othe http://www.ebaseballfans.com/Joe-Carter-Jersey rwise.

“It brings out more people and it’s a great reminder to get the word out about how important it is to donate blood as we’re heading into this holiday season,” Graham said.

Morse was joined at the event by fellow offensive linemen Mitchell Schwartz, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Bryan Witzmann, who met with donors and signed autographs for volunteers.

“These guys are doing an awesome job,” Duvernay-Tardif said. “They collect and process over 400 units of blood a day, which is a huge amount with all the safety checks and everything they have to go through in order to get it to the hospital. It’s pretty impressive.”

Duvernay-Tardif knows what he’s talking about when it comes to medicine, as he’s been attending medical school at McGill University in Montreal, Canada each offseason since coming to Kansas City three years ago.

“I mean you see the importance of giving blood all the time when you work in a hospital,” Duvernay-Tardif explained. “I was doing emergency trauma last winter and when somebody is coming in with massive blood loss, you give them O Negative and it literally saves their life.

“I’m thankful for all the people that show up here today to donate blood.”

Around the AFC West: Chargers, Raid Joe Carter Jersey ers Continue Late-Season Push

The Chiefs are hanging on to a one-game division lead with five to play

The Kansas City Chiefs fell to the Buffalo Bills last week, but still maintain a one-game lead in the AFC West.

Here’s a look at how the rest of the division fared last weekend.

Los Angeles Chargers (5-6)

Week 12 Results: Won at Dallas, 28-6

The Chargers went into Dallas and spoiled Thanksgiving for the Cowboys last week, jumping out to an early 16-point lead and eventually winning by three touchdowns.

Quarterback Philip Rivers comple Vintage 1993 Mitchell and Ness Joe Carter Blue Jays Throwback Home White Jersey ted 27 of 33 passes for 434 yards and three scores, posting a 149.1 passer rating – his best since 2007. Rivers’ primary target on the afternoon was 1993 Joe Carter Jersey  wide receiver Keenan Allen, who hauled in 11 catches for a career-high 172 yards and a touchdown.

The win marked Los Angeles’ fifth win in its last seven games and has the Chargers just one game back of Kansas City in the division.

The Local Perspective: The Los Angeles Times listed its observations following the Chargers’ win at Dallas.

Next Up: The Chargers host the Cleveland Browns (0-11) next week.

Oakland Raiders (5-6)

Week 12 Results: Won vs. Denver, 21-14

The Raiders raced out to a 21-point lead and held off a late Denver rally to win for a third time in their last five games last week. Quarterback Derek Carr posted his best passer rating (136.3) since Week 2, completing 18 of 24 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns.

Oakland’s defense held Denver to just 219 yards of offense and off the scoreboard until midway through Men’s Mitchell and Ness Vintage 1993 Joe Carter Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Throwback Jersey  the fourth quarter.

Tempers flared early in the game, as Raiders’ wide receiver Michael Crabtree and Broncos’ cornerback Aqib Talib were ejected for fighting. Both players received two-game suspensions from the league, meaning Crabtree could miss the Raiders matchup with Kansas City on Dec. 10.

The Loc Joe Carter Blue Jays Jersey al Perspective: The East Bay Times took a look at the Raiders’ playoff chances.

Next Up: The Raiders host the New York Giants (2-9) next week.

Denver Broncos (3-8)

Week 12 Results: Lost at Oakland, 21-14

The Broncos dropped a seventh-straight game on Sunday, marking their longest losing streak since 1967. Denver fell behind by Joe Carter Jersey  three touchdowns before rallying late, but it wasn’t enough as the Raiders managed to run out the clock with the lead intact.

Denver started second-year quarterback Paxton Lynch, who completed nine of 14 passes for 41 yards and an interception before injuring his ankle. Trevor Siemian took over for Lynch following the injury and will start next week for Denver.

The Local Perspective: The Denver Post examined the Broncos’ quarterback situation.

Next Up: The Broncos travel to Miami next week to play the Dolphins (4-7).

Chiefs’ Veterans Bringing Perspective, Leadership, to Curr Joe Carter Jersey ent Situation

The Chiefs dropped their fifth game in their last six attempts Sunday afternoon

The NFL season is a battle of attrition.

There are ups, downs, ebbs, and flows to every season for every team—regardless of the success of that team that year.

The key to finding success through this treacherous journey is the ability to always bring things back to center, which for the Kansas City Chiefs right now, might be a challenge for many.

The facts are that the Chiefs still currently lead the AFC West by a game, and while the team has dropped four of the last five games, they have still proven at their best to be able to play with anyone.

And while the consistency hasn’t been there and the struggles are magnified because of the key wins they had earlier in the year over the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots—two of the favorites to reach the Super Bowl—the ability to beat the best is somethin http://www.ebaseballfans.com/Joe-Carter-Jersey g they’ve already proven capable of, even if that’s hard to remember right now for some.

Perhaps perceptions might be different if the Chiefs had lost to the Patriots and Eagles, but won their most-recent games over the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills.

But in the weekly battle of attrition, it doesn’t really matter. The current situation would be the same.

The Chiefs are 6-5 with five regular-season games remaining, and they don’t need any outside help to reach the playoffs or defend their division title—something they’ve never done in 58 seasons of existence with eight division titles to their name (1966, 1971, 1993, 1995, 1997, 2003, 2010, 2016).

On Sunday afternoon, the Chiefs dropped their fifth game in six tries by a score of 16-10 to the Buffalo Bills.

It was the fourth game this year in which the Chiefs lost by just a single possession, and for the second week in a row, they even had a chance again late with a final drive with just two minutes remaining and trailing by six points.

The drive, which began at the Chiefs’ 14-yard line, got as far as the Bills’ 36-yard line but ended with an Alex Smith pass being intercepted by Bills’ standout rookie cornerback Tre’Davious White, who took it 63 yards the other way. And with no timeouts remaining, the interception essentially sealed the win for the Bills.

After the game, a few of the Chiefs’ veterans spoke about how to get things turned around.

“You don’t point fingers,” Chiefs’ veteran lineback Mitchell and Ness Joe Carter 1993 Toronto Blue Jays Cooperstown Collection Authentic Light Blue Throwback Jersey er Derrick Johnson explained. “I have been in this league long enough and been in situations worse than this. You don’t point fingers. You can strike a better blow if you stop pointing fingers and curl them up, get tight (like a fist). That’s the main thing right now. You’ve got to get tight. We’ve got good character guys on this team.

“To tell you that we are going to bounce the right way, I can’t honestly say that right now. We just have to show it by action. We have a lot of self-checking and a lot of looking in the mirror to see what we can do better individually in order to get better.”

The “don’t talk about it, be about it” mantra is something this group has lived by in the past, and something that’s obviously going to be a focus moving forward.

For the second week in a row, the Chiefs’ defense held their opponent to less than 17 points. They also held one of the league’s top running backs, LeSean McCoy, to just 49 yards on 22 carries—an average of just 2.2 yards per carry—the third-lowest of his career in games that he’s had at least 15 carries.

Just a few weeks ago, the Chiefs’ rush defense was an area of concern and the team worked their way through that problem—performing well for the third-straight week.

The Chiefs haven’t allowed a starting running back to average better than 3.7 yards per carry over the last three weeks, and hopefully that ability to improve what they’re struggling with transfers over to the other side of the ball.

The Chiefs’ rushing attack couldn’t get things going on Sunday as rookie running back Kareem Hunt finished with 17 yards on 11 carries, which marks the fourth-straight game he hasn’t eclipsed 100 yards from scrimmage after beginning the season with an NFL record seven-straight games with at least 100 yards from scrimmage.

“Every game is not a perfect game, so you’re going to go through some hard times,” Chiefs’ coach Andy Reid added. “You stick together, you work hard and you get through it. Then you’re real with your game. We’re all real with our game and then good things will Men’s Mitchell and Ness Vintage 1993 Joe Carter Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Throwback Jersey  happen.”

The Chiefs are no strangers to winning streaks, so it’s not out of the question that the Chiefs could turn things around and string a few wins together.

Under Reid, the Chiefs have had a five-game winning streak in each of his five seasons at the helm.

“I think for all of us, we all lean on each other,” quarterback Alex Smith said. “It’s a team game, a unit, especially on offense it takes all 11 guys all doing it. Certainly not getting it done (right now). Didn’t get it done [on Sunday] and it’s frustrating.”

“It’s tough, man, whenever you lose,” Johnson added. “Regard Vintage 1993 Mitchell and Ness Joe Carter Blue Jays Throwback Home White Jersey less of what the score is, it’s tough. This ball has been rolling downhill and the more losses you get, the harder that ball is to stop rolling in the wrong direction.”

But despite the recent struggles and how they ultimately got to this point, the Chiefs still control their path as they lead the division with five left to play.

“We have been leading the division every week,” Johnson said. “That’s not an excuse to relax. The sense of urgency was here last week. It’s here again. It is going to be here for the rest of the year. We have to figure out how to get it done.”

For Johnson and the Chiefs, that starts again this week as they prepare for the New York Jets.

“This is one of those games where you need to get it,” Johnson noted. “We need to get one win. We need to get a win. However, we can get it, we need to get it becaus Joe Carter Blue Jays Jersey e it doesn’t look good right now.”

S Joe Carter Jersey nap Counts: Reggie Ragland Impresses Again in Expanded Role

The second-year linebacker led the team in tackles for a second consecutive week on Sunday

Defensive Notes

Linebacker Reggie Ragland played 42 snaps (60 percent) on Sunday, leading Kansas City with nine tackles (8.0 solo) and three tackles for loss. The second-year linebacker has seen an uptick in playing time over the past two games and has made the most of it, tallying 18 tackles (16 solo) and four tackles for loss in that span.

Defensive backs Daniel Sorensen (7.0 tackles), Steven Nelson (5.0 tackles), Marcus Peters (6.0 tackles) and Ron Parker (3.0 tackles) each played all 70 d Joe Carter Jersey efensive snaps on  Mitchell and Ness Joe Carter 1993 Toronto Blue Jays Cooperstown Collection Authentic Light Blue Throwback Jersey Sunday. Sorensen recorded a sack  Men’s Mitchell and Ness Vintage 1993 Joe Carter Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Throwback Jersey on the afternoon, establishing a career Joe Carter Blue Jays Jersey -high with 1.5 on the season. Parker has played ever Vintage 1993 Mitchell and Ness Joe Carter Blue Jays Throwback Home White Jersey y defensive snap for Kansas City this season – the only Chief to do so.

Linebacker Tanoh Kpassagnon played a season-high 14 snaps (20 percent) against Buffalo.

Cornerback Terrance Mitchell played 39 defensive snaps (56 percent), recording a solo tackle and two passes defensed.

Offensive Notes

Wide receiver Tyreek Hill played 48 snaps (83 percent), catching seven passes for 41 yards. The seven catches matched a season-high.

Tight end Travis Kelce played all but two offensive snaps (56) against the Bills, hauling in three catches for 39 yards.

Upon Further Review: Five Quick Facts Following the Chiefs’ Loss on Sunda Custom Blue Jays Jersey y

Here are some quick facts following the Chiefs’ loss to Buffalo

The Kansas City Chiefs dropped a close one on Sunday, falling to the Buffalo Bills at Arrowhead Stadium. It was Kansas City’s fifth loss in its last six games, though the Chiefs still lead the division with five games to play.

Here are some quick facts following the loss.

1. The Bills came to pl Blue Jays Custom Jersey Cheap ay on Sunday

Bills’ quarterback Tyrod Taylor continued his strong play on the road this season, posting a passer rating over 90.0 for a fourth time in six games.

Buffalo took the lead late in the first quarter when Taylor found wide receiver Zay Jones for an 11-yard touchdown, continuing an interesting trend for the Bills’ offense.

2. Linebacker Reggie Ragland is developing into a difference-maker for Kansas City

Ragland recorded nine tackles (8.0 solo) and three tackles for loss against Buffalo – his former team before being traded to the Chiefs prior to the season.

His three tackles for loss matched the most by a Chief this season, joining Justin Houston in Week 2 against Philadelphia.

The second-year linebacker has led Kansas City with 18 tackles (16.0 solo) and four tackles for loss over the Chiefs’ last two games.

3. Justin Houston got to the quarterback

Houston notched a sack on Sunday, making it 8.5 on the season – his most since 2014.

The seventh-year linebacker is just five sacks shy of matching Art Still (1978-87) for the fourth-most in team history.

It was part of a Chiefs’ defensive effort that tallied two sacks and nine tackles for loss on Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Alternate Royal Blue Jersey  the afternoon.

4. Harrison Butker continues to kick his way into the record books

The rookie kicker connected on a 45-yard field goal late in the first half on Sunday, marking his 23rd consecutive made kick – the longest streak in team history. Butker passed Ryan Succop (2011) and Pete Stoy Toronto Blue Jays Custom Jersey anovich (1997-98) for the record.

And with five games to go, Butker is just two kicks shy of matching Cairo Santos (2014) and Succop (2009) for the most made field goals by a rookie in franchise history.

5. Albert Wison played well in his return to the field

Wilson returned to action on Sunday after missing Kansas City’s last two games with a hamstring injury, and played well, hauling in three catches for 36 yards and a touchdown.

The touchdown reception was Wilson’s 100th career catch, and a career-high third score through the air. 

What We Learned Fro Custom Blue Jays Jersey m Monday’s Media Availability

Andy Reid spoke to the media on Monday

CHIEFS HEAD COACH ANDY REID

OPENING STATEMENT: “I don’t have anything to mention about injuries, the guys are coming in now. Lo Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Road Gray Baseball Jersey oked like we came out fairly healthy. We obviously need to do better as a football team. On the positive side I thought we did some t Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Alternate Royal Blue Jersey hings, made some improvements defensively. We did well in the run game part of it and pretty much shut down a running back that I consider one of the best in the business. Offensively we continue to start slow. That’s my responsibility and I’ll address that with the offense. I always go back and look at what I can do better. I think we all probably need to do a little more of that. With the core group that I’ve got on the offensive side I know they’ll look in the mirror first and demand more from each other. I’d say that all the way through with our locker room. We’ve got a good locker room. There’s an ebb and flow in the National Football League that takes place at times. Every year is different. You’re going to have some highs and lows. We’re obviously not playing as well as we’d like to play and the end results are showing that. Everybody has to feel that urgency to change it. Again, I thought we had a good week of practice last week, but we stalled coming out of the gate on the offensive side of the ball. We can’t do that. We all have to pick our game up.”

Q: To what extent of the stalling is a play calling issue?

REID: “I’ll take full responsibility of that. I have to do a better job there. The plays aren’t working that have been called there. I know I’ve got responsible guys on the offensive side that I know will also take responsibility there. We’ve all got a little piece of it. But I definitely need to do a better job there.”

Q: Alex (Smith) said there was some miscommunication with Tyreek Hill on the interception – is that something that just happens in the course of the game?

REID: “It shouldn’t happen. Too many little things like that that we need to take care of. Like I said, I trust our core group here. We’ve been through some things in the past but there’s got to be an urgency there to fix problems and it starts with me. Little situations throughout, they can’t happen. Whether it’s doing a better job of communicating that and/or executing it, needs to take place.”

Q: Is Alex (Smith) not in sync, is he missing some opportunities?

REID: “I think it’s everybody. I think we’ve all got a piece of this. I’m not saying that it’s Alex (Smith). It starts with me. Because I’m the one giving him the plays. I would tell you that every play there’s a little something and it kind of spreads out to different positions. When you’re not quite in sync, that’s what takes place. There’s a breakdown – here or there. You’re not able to point it at one exact person, there’s a flow here of one guy doing something that needs to be better. That’s what we’ve got to do. You’ve got to make sure you’re putting them in position to do that. Giving them the right looks against the right defensive looks.”

Q: 26 plays inside of 10 yards for the passing game – is that affecting the run game?

REID: “Depends on what the defense is doing. You saw that they were bringing an extra guy right from the start. So there are times where you’ve got to get the ball out relatively quick. So that’s what we did. Can we get more downfield throws, we probably could. That’s part of it. But again, early in the game, that’s what they were doing.”

Q: Did you call more downfield in that game?

REID: “I could have done better there. I probably could have done a lot better with that one.”

Q: You said there are other things you want to get done – can you elaborate on that?

REID: “Possibly, yeah I could give you a little. But I wouldn’t want to give too much. That wouldn’t be real smart. Again I’ve got to make sure that I get done what I need to get done from the coaching part of it. Then we’ve got a couple little wrinkles that we’ve got to clean up and we’ll get that done too. That’s about as much as I’d give you.”

Q: Not lineup type things?

REID: “Either way. I’m looking at everything. Which probably needs to get done right there, you need to look at everything. That’s my responsibility to do that. I’m not sitting right here in a position to give you an answer to that.”

Q: Are you seeing the same things from defenses in the past month?

REID: “No. Everybody has got their own little wrinkle here that they’ve given us. This group actually played all nickel to us, even when we went with our personnel group, our big guys out there. With an extra lineman out there. They still played nickel. I mean everybody’s been a little different. Teams shouldn’t be able to do that and get away with it.”

Q: With the significant difference between the first month of the season and now in the run game, do you have to block better or are they actively taking the run away?

REID: “What the team did yesterday was they put an extra guy in the box and that was their answer to the run game. They brought five. They played zone behind it and played press on the outside. You have to do certain things to counter that. I didn’t think we did a good job of that from my standpoint or the execution standpoint.”

Q: With not being able to take advantage of them being in nickel, is this the most disappointing offensive game of the year?

REID: “We have to do better. We have to do a better job. That is why I am standing here and I am going to tell you I am going to give the guys an opportunity to do that. I didn’t get that done yesterday.”

Q: Is this a game where the other team just got you?

REID: “I will tell you that they won the game, so inevitably, they got us. To say we weren’t sure what they were doing, I wouldn’t tell you that. We have to get the right things called for the right situations and you have to execute. That is where we are at right now.”

Q: How do you keep the guys focused on living for the next down?

REID: “Well, you got a glimpse of it in the second half. There is no reason you can’t, and that was with a penalty involved, which shouldn’t take place. We shouldn’t be jumping off sides. That isn’t what you should do. It is hard to go backwards and still have a successful drive like we did. It shows what this offense, when it is executing properly and getting the right plays in, what can take place. You have to string together that. You can’t go backwards in the National Football League. You know that statistically it drops your percentage and chance of scoring way down. It is hard to drive a long field, period. Let alone without and explosive play and without a penalty included on that.”

Q: Does it make an impression on the team when fans are booing?

REID: “Well, you don’t want that to happen, obviously. We have great fans, tremendous fans. We didn’t do very well. Like I said, it was more one-sided on that. The offense didn’t do as well as we needed to do. I understand why they were booing. We surely don’t want that to happen. We are going to work our tails off to make it better. That part guaranteed. We are going to work on those things we need to get better at and get this changed around.”

Q: What can you do to beat certain coverages presented to you?

REID: “We have to make sure we dial those up and give the guys an opportunity to execute them and then, if the defense is presenting it, we have the route going the right way that we throw and complete it. Have to do a better job of protecting. You can kind of go around and see, if you are on a three step drop and you have a guy in your lap, that is a tough thing. You have to execute and you have to take pride in that. There has to be an urgency. A back-to-the-wall mentality and so on. There is a certain desire that goes into this sport no matter how you cut it from a player’s standpoint and a coaching standpoint. And it has to be collectively. If it is not, then you have a problem. So you have to fix that. And there is no better time to fix it then now. That’s how we are going to go about our business here.”

Q: Was there some of everything that went into not getting the offense going at each position?

REID: “I would tell you, yes. I would tell you, throughout that, http://www.ebaseballfans.com/Toronto-Blue-Jays-Custom-Jersey  if y Custom Blue Jays Jersey ou look outside of that one drive, there might be a little one of everything, is what I am saying. We have to clean that up. And that is my responsibility that we get that cleaned up.”

Q: Alex is your guy?

REID: “Alex is my guy, yeah.”

Q: Would you say he is your guy barring injury?

REID: “Without getting philosophical, I am not sitting here with a crystal ball projecting things like that. That is not  Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red Flex Base Authentic Jersey how I roll. We all have responsibility to do our job. At all positions. Staring with me. That is not getting done the right way. It is not one guy. That has to be understood. It is not one person. And we all have to pull together as a football team, in this case, as an offensive football team, right now and get that taken care of. As a team. Not one guy. That is about as clear as I can make it.”

Chiefs CB Darrelle Custom Blue Jays Jersey  Revis: “My role is to help win”

The Chiefs’ newest defensive addition has a reputation for making plays

The Kansas City Chiefs added a future Hall of Fame cornerback to their roster Wednesday afternoon by signing former New York Jets’ playmaker Darrelle Revis

Revis—the seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time first-team All-Pro—hasn’t yet played this year after spending all of last season with the Jets. He’s just 32 years old.

“You’re talking about one of t Blue Jays Custom Jersey Cheap he all-time great players at that position,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Wednesday afternoon of Revis, who is entering his 11th year in the league. “It’s just a matter of getting him back into the swing of things.”

The Jets selected Revis with the No. 14 overall pick in the first round of the 2007 NFL Draft out of the University of Pittsburgh. He would spend the first six years of his career (2007-12) there before heading off to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2013) and New England Patriots (2014) before once again joining the Jets for the last two seasons (2015-16).

In his career, Revis has tallied 29 interceptions, 137 passes defensed, nine tackles for loss and six forced fumbles. And according to Pro Football Focus, he’s graded as a top three cornerback in five of his 10 NFL seasons.

“Very intelligent, very instinctive,” Reid added. “We’re excited to have him here.”

The Chiefs are hoping Revis—a name around football that’s become synonymous with “playmaker” over the years—can step in and make an impact for a defense that’s had its ups and downs this season.

“I would think his role would be to step in and be a starter,” Reid explained of Revis’ role this year. “That’s how I would like it.”

Despite the excitement and possibilities, there was no timetable given for how long it’ll be before we actually see Revis on the field in a game.

“There’s no hurry,” Reid added. “He’s a veteran guy, he looks like he’s in good shape. Let’s just see where he’s at.”

Looking ahead, the Chiefs host the Bills Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium, and when asked, Reid didn’t necessarily rule out Revis potentially playing  Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Alternate Royal Blue Jersey in that game.

“He knows the system,” Reid noted. “That’s the only reason why I wouldn’t (rule it out). But I’ve got to see where we’re at here. We’re not going to rush him into anything.”

Revis knows the system and can acclimate himself quickly because of his familiarity with Chiefs’ defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, who held the same position with the Jets when Revis first came into the league. They spent six years together in New York, and during that time, Revis earned three of the four All-Pro honors of his career (2009-11).

“[Sutton] has been very vital in my success,” Revis explained to the local Kansas City media Wednesday afternoon. “He helped me grow as a football player. He helped me grow as a man. Actually, teaming back up with him and loving what he does as a defensive coordinator was a no-brainer. I think that is why one of the reasons I wanted to come play with the Chiefs.”

The opportunity to join Reid was exciting for Revis as well.

“I am a big fan of Andy Reid,” Revis noted. “I still haven’t been able to pick off one of his quarterback’s passes, but now I am actually teaming up alongside of him. This phase righ Toronto Blue Jays Custom Jersey t here for me, the veteran I am is to pick Andy Reid’s brain. Being around him and seeing his football IQ, that is the type of thing I would like to be around. Football is a tricky game. You can’t come into a game and this game specifically and think you know it. It is all about growing and improving.

“Where I am at now, to be alongside an established coach as Andy Reid, it made sense in my career.”

Revis, who spoke with multiple teams this year before joining the Chiefs, said he spent the last eight-to-nine months just taking care of his body and waiting for the right time to get back into the league. He also said he spent a lot of time watching  Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Road Gray Baseball Jersey the Chiefs because of his familiarity with Sutton, and also because of his discussions with the team that go back to before the season began.

“It’s just exciting to have this opportunity to return back to football,” Revis noted. “I think the reason for me returning is the fire I have—the fuel I have to continue to play this game at a high level.

“My role is to help win.”

The Chiefs have been doing plenty of winning as they currently sit at 6-4 and have a two-game lead in the AFC West division.

And Revis, who carries a 7-2 career playoff record with him, was welcomed with open arms by the other veterans and leaders in the Chiefs’ locker room.

“I had a chance to talk to some of the guys before [Revis] even got into the building—just to give them a heads up,” Reid explained. “Obviously, some of these guys know him from either Pro Bowls or wherever being in the league awhile. I think they’re excited to have him. He has a reputation of being a good guy. Hard worker and a good guy. Players are good with that. They appreciate that.” 

One of the players Revis will be spending quite a bit of time with is third-year All-Pro cornerback Marcus Peters, who has mor http://www.ebaseballfans.com/Toronto-Blue-Jays-Custom-Jersey e interceptions (17) than anyone else in the league over the past three seasons.

S Custom Blue Jays Jersey everal Chiefs Embrace the Spirit of Giving This Holiday Season

Numer Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Alternate Royal Blue Jersey ous Chiefs participated in a handful of events geared at bringing holiday meals to those in need this week

The spirit of the giving was alive and well with the Kansas City Chiefs this week, as several players helped bring a Thanksgiving dinner to hundreds of families that many not have had one otherwise.

The 26th annual Chiefs Thanksgiving Food Distribution was at the forefront of that effort, providing meals to 1,500 families throughout the Kansas City area on Tuesday.

A collection of volunteers from the Third a Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red Flex Base Authentic Jersey nd Long Foundation, the Red Coaters and eleven of the Chiefs’ rookies spent the afternoon packing and loading meals onto trucks bound for 36 local food relief centers dedicated to helping those in need.

Running back Kareem Hunt, quarterback Patrick Mahomes, wide receivers Jehu Chesson, Marcus Kemp and Gehrig Dieter, linebackers Ukeme Eligwe and Tanoh Kpassagnon, defensive tackles Damien Mama and Rickey Hatley, safety Leon McQuay and kicker Harrison Butker all assisted with the initiative.  

“It’s always important to help out families around the Kansas City area that are so supportive of us,” Mahomes said. “It’s awesome to get out here, especially with some of the guys, to help out other people.”

The event was held in partners http://www.ebaseballfans.com/Toronto-Blue-Jays-Custom-Jersey hip with the Third and Long Foundation, which was created by a pair of Chiefs legends in late Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith with the goal of helping the less fortunate in Kansas City.

“Derrick wanted to make sure that he took care of our community,” said Betty Brown, President of the Third and Long Foundation. “I know we’re not the only individuals that are out here doing this, but I think it’s a great cause helping folks.”

Since its beginnings in 1992, the event has provided more than 22,000 local families with a Thanksgiving meal.

“This means a lot,” Hunt said. “It’s just something that I always like doing – being able to help out in the community. It’s pretty cool to be in a situation where I can help families in Kansas City.”

Significant as it was, Tuesday’s initiative was just one example of the Chiefs’ commitment to helping those in need this holiday season.

Cornerback Marcus Peters hosted the week’s first event, distributing turkeys at the Gregg/Klice Community Center with the help of the varsity football team from nearby Lincoln College Preparatory Academy.

“Marcus is just giving back,” said Peters’ mother, Doreen. “He’s giving back to the Kansas City community, which is his community now.”

Coined the “It Takes a Village Turkey Distribution,” the effort was held in conjunction with the Fam First Family Foundation, which Peters started along with fellow football players Marshawn Lynch and Joshua Johnson.

“They’re trying to give back to kids that are just like them,” Doreen said. “They want to show them that if you work hard, you can get out of the city and you can do big things.”

While over 250 people claimed a turkey from the event, it was just as impactful for the kids from Lincoln Prep to see a prominent figure spending his time making a difference.

“I told Marcus that any time our kids get to see somebody who’s been in their shoes that’s made it and who’s now able to give back, it’s a big positive for our kids,” said William Lowe, Lincoln’s Head Coach. “They love any time they get to meet somebody in his position.”

Three other Chiefs were working on a similar initiative just a few miles away, as defensive tackle Allen Bailey and wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Albert Wilson helped pass out food and other supplies at the Redemptorist Social Services Center.

“It’s big just to be able to give back to these families,” Hill said. “We really do care about this community and we care about the people in it just as if they were our own family. It’s big for all of us – Allen, Albert and me. It’s big.”

The players distributed turkeys, stuffing and other traditional favorites to over 200 families that may not have been able to afford a Thanksgiving dinner otherwise.

“I’ve been blessed to be in a place where I can give back,” Wilson said. “It’s a great holiday to focus on being thankful for the things you have, and being in a positon to give back is something for which I’m very grateful. Every opportunity I have to give back like this, I’m definitely going to go for it.”

The trio’s collaboration brought a joyful attitude to the event.

“It makes it fun when you do this with teammates,” Bailey said. “We’re joking around, smiling, taking photos and meeting people. It’s a lot of fun.”

Linebacker Reggie Ragland also took part in the holiday spirit, though his actions involved a personal touch as he surprised a family wit Toronto Blue Jays Custom Jersey h a turkey and other items at their doorstep.

“To go to somebody’s home and to see what they go through, it’s a humbling feeling,” Ragland said. “My parents did what they could for us growing up, and I’m happy just to see other families smiling – especially the kids. The kids make it worthwhile for me, because when I was growing up, I wish somebody in my current position had spoken to me. It gives people hope.”It was a special moment for the family receiving Ragland’s hospitality.

“I was really excited, I had this big grin on my face the whole time,” said Gail Kelley. “It just means a lot. It was really nice of him to come by and sit here and talk to us for a little bit.”

Another Chief was hard at work outside of Kansas City.

Upon arriving back from Sunday’s game in New York, tight end Demetrius Harris drove to his hometown of Jacksonville, Ark. to distribute over 100 turkeys and hams.

“It’s giving back to where I went to school and where I was from,” Harris said. “I’m happy that I’m doing it. It’s just a great feeling.”

All unique in their own way, each action brought joy to hundreds of families that were looking for something to smile about this holiday season, and there’s even more to come.

The Chiefs will hold the annual Chiefs Kingdom Food Drive this Sunday as the Chiefs take on the Buffalo Bills, providing several ways for fa Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Road Gray Baseball Jersey ns to get involved in the fight against hunger.

As guests arrive at Arrowhead, they’ll be greeted by volunteers with instructional cards about the campaign. Volunteers from Hy-Vee, Farmland, the Kansas City Steak Company and Harvesters will manage collection bins for non-perishable food items around the stadium. Fans can also purchase tickets for the Hunt Family Foundation 50/50 Raffle during the game, with proceeds benefitting Harvesters.

Local Hy-Vee stores will also accept non-perishable food donations until Nov. 29, and fans can make a monetary donation online at www.chiefs.harvestersvfd.org.

It’s all part of the largest food drive of its kind in the NFL, which provided 285,000 meals for local families in need last season.

From each individual event to the food drive on Sunday, it all adds up to yet another example of how the Chiefs are far more than just a football team to Kansas City – it’s a family.

Alex Smith and Derrick Johnso Custom Blue Jays Jersey n Flip the Switch at the Plaza Lighting Ceremony

The Chiefs took part in a Kansas City tradition on Thanksgiving night

A pair of Kansas City institutions came together on Thanksgiving night, as Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Alex Smith and linebacker Derrick Johnson flipped the switch at the 88th Annual KCP&L Plaza Lighting Ceremony.

Smith was excited about the opportunity beforehand.

“It’s one of the many traditions in this area that’s just awesome,” Smith said. “I live close to the Plaza, so I’ve gone down there and watched it with my kids every year since I’ve been here. It’s really special to be a part of this and to do it with my  Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red Flex Base Authentic Jersey family.”

It was also a special moment for Johnson, who has been a part of the Kansas City community since 2005.

“I know what the Plaza Lighting Ceremony means to Kansas City,” Johnson said. “To be a part of it this year, with family, friends and teammates Toronto Blue Jays Custom Jersey  standing near, is very special.”

It’s the first time the Chiefs have taken part in the event since 2010, when running backs Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones kicked off the holiday season by flipping the switch.

Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark  Custom Blue Jays Jersey Hunt and his wife, Tavia, did the honors in 2006 along with Chiefs’ Hall of Famers Bobby Bell and Willie Lanier.
