Chiefs inspired by Eric Berry’s strength in midst of lymphoma scare

Teammates of Kansas City Chiefs star safety Eric Berry say the speech he gave the team Monday following news that he might have lymphoma was sobering and inspirational. Meanwhile, Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirmed perhaps the most illuminating story of all — that the first thing Berry asked when told of the mass in his chest is whether he could still play Sunday in the Chiefs’ huge home test against Denver.

Despite Thursday’s uninspiring 24-20 loss at Oakland, it’s how Chiefs respond to that misery that will ultimately matter. Of the 14 champions since the 2000 season, six had records of 7-4 or worse after 11 games.  This isn’t to say the Chiefs are destined for the Super Bowl. It’s just to say that it’s a fallacy to believe that good teams don’t lose to lesser teams.
