As Tyreek Hill emerges as a playmaker, so does dilemma for Chiefs fans

Tyreek Hill was a controversial draft pick for the Chiefs because of his guilty plea for domestic assault and battery by strangulation of his pregnant girlfriend in 2014. The Chiefs were wrong to do it for many reasons, including the dilemma in which it puts their fans to reconcile Hill’s presence. Is it possible to be both sensitive to his victim, and other victims of abuse, and want to see Hill reformed and successful? There is no one answer.


Facing high-scoring Jets, Chiefs need to avoid another slow first half

The Chiefs have trailed by double digits at halftime in each of their first two games. They needed the greatest comeback in team history to win the opener over the Chargers but couldn’t close the deal against the Texans. Complicating the issue for the Chiefs is slow first-half starts have occurred for different reasons. With the high-flying Jets coming to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, the Chiefs will need a faster start.


‘We screwed up.’ Chiefs say parking headaches will improve for next game

The Kansas city Chiefs implemented new parking guidelines for games at Arrowhead Stadium this season and the first regular-season game didn’t go smoothly. Congestion at one gate and little direction inside the tollbooths made for a frustrating experience for many fans. The Chiefs vow improvements will be made for the next home game, this Sunday against the New York Jets at 3:25 p.m.

New York Jets star Darrelle Revis has long been regarded as one of the league’s best cornerbacks, but a slow start to the season, which has seen him surrender a pair of deep passes, including a 84-yard bomb to Buffalo speedster Marquise Goodwin last week, has led to plenty of talk about whether the seven-time Pro Bowler has fallen off a bit.


Chiefs receivers look to get on the same page with Alex Smith

The Chiefs’ passing game was plagued by poor quarterback-receiver communication in a loss to the Texans on Sunday, and Alex Smith and his teammates know it needs to get fixed. The good news, though, is that their uptempo offense — specifically in three-wide sets — has been humming after being an offseason point of emphasis.
