Chiefs Notes: “We’re Rolling High, But We Can’t Forget Where We Came From”


Kansas City defeated the Houston Texans on Sunday, 17-16, at Arrowhead. Here are some of the relevant quotes, notes, and tweets from Sunday’s win.

QUOTES

“It feels good, man, it feels good. The energy. The vibe. Everything. We’re rolling high, but we can’t forget where we came from. We gotta keep our nose down and keep grinding.” – Dwayne Bowe on the season so far

“I love what this team is doing. Love my coaches, my players, the staff, everybody in the organization. We’re just feeding off that energy and we’re gonna ride it until the train falls off.” – Bowe

“At any time, he’s just on the cusp of erupting. Any time he touches the ball, the defense, they’re holding their breath.” – Sean McGrath on Bowe

“I don’t look at any of that. I am just a next game … one-game at-a-time. I’m not very good at that other stuff. I’m not very good with how all those numbers go with standings or stats …” – Andy Reid on the Chiefs one game lead over Denver

“I can’t even compare. I haven’t even thought about it. If you just get into this thing and hold the things you can control, and that’s practicing right, going through the different steps of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday … if you hold true to that …” – Reid on his 7-0 start in Philadelphia in 2004

“Yeah, we made that play up. I went the wrong way. I was moving around and all the formations were moving all day, and I just forgot which way to go. My mind went blank, and I’m just glad that Alex was able to execute the play and score.” – Jamaal Charles on Alex Smith’s 5-yard touchdown run

“I was pretty upset with myself on the one to McGrath. I thought I was going to be able to run in and got kind of surprised when nobody was covering him.” – Smith on 4th and goal play

“I think the thing I look at, the turnovers and executing in the red zone, made this thing a little closer than it had to be.” – Smith

“The guy can definitely move around back there, buy some time for his receivers to get open and he has the arm strength to make the big play down the field. I found that out the hard way.” – Sean Smith on Case Keenum’s first start

“I don’t want to say we overlooked him, but that guy was better than we thought.” – Kendrick Lewis

“I told y’all Keenum can play. He’s gonna be good … he’s got good composure. He’s like a fourth-year guy as a rookie. That’s very rare.” – Quintin Demps

“I’ve never been 7-0 in my life.” – Derrick Johnson

NOTES

- Jamaal Charles has seven-straight games of 100 yards of total offense or more to start the season. Only O.J. Simpson has done that.

- 15 of the 31 teams to start 7-0 made the Super Bowl. KC lost in the second round of the playoffs to Indianapolis the only other time they started 7-0.

- Tamba Hali’s next sack will rank him third all-time in Chiefs history.

- KC has allowed only 17 points in the fourth quarter this season.

    Of all these quotes and tweets, one made me freeze and just think, made me emotionally excited in a happy but kinda sad way. Derrick Johnson’s
