Come Sunday there will be no love lost. Whenever those chumps…err…Chiefs roll into the East Bay all I want to do with all that red is paint the town. Among the best rivalries in the history of the sport, Raiders-Chiefs is always must-see-TV. Tomorrow’s edition promises to be a heated battle. Kansas City is regaining its form from last season despite two horrible losses and two terrible injuries to begin the season.
Don’t look now but if (and I stress if) the Chiefs can end Oakland’s streak of dominance in the AFC West then they’ll be right in the hunt for the division.
That being said Hue Jackson is doing his best to keep Todd Haley guessing. Will Carson Palmer start? Is Sebastian Janikowski healthy enough to boom 55-yarders? Will Matt Cassel crap his pants the first time Richard Seymour and Tommy Kelly come at him with hate in their heart?
We’ll have to wait a few more hours to get answers to those questions. To get you ready for the game I stepped into Chiefs country to answer a few questions from Arrowhead Addict.
Now far be it for me too give any props to anything KC related that does not involve BBQ. Got to say that Kansas City style is how I roll when I’m doing my thing on the grill. Still, I can confidently say that Arrowhead Addict is the best blog on the net for all those lost souls out there that root for the Chiefs. When Patrick Allen, AA’s senior editor, reached out to me with some great questions for the game it got me fired up for Sunday.
Patrick might be the enemy on Sunday, but he’s otherwise a great dude Monday through Saturday. You can read my answers to all his questions here. My man is up on his Raiders, I’ll say that much. He didn’t ask your normal, run-of-the-mill questions but instead got to the meat of the matter.
So cruise on over to AA and see what I had to say about the Silver and Black. Not to worry, Coach Jackson. Your secret is safe with JBB. We didn’t give away any of those surprises you have in store for Sunday.
