Chiefs Notes: "We Have To Continue To Fight"

Here’s your roundup of news, notes, tweets and more from Sunday’s 35-28 to Denver


“These last two, we had a chance to win it, both times I felt like we had a chance to win it. We were in these games. Earlier in the year, we were coming out at the other end of these, on the other side of it. We just have to continue to fight. I think this team has that kind of character. We just have to keep plugging along. There’s still everything we want in front of us. It was a tough loss (and there’s) no time to point fingers or do any of that. (We just have) to continue to do what we’ve been doing and get better. Obviously, we need to look at this execution tonight and get better from it and move on to next week.” – Alex Smith

“We’ve love to have gone undefeated. The reality of that happening … I mean, how many times has it happened in the history of football? It’s not likely.” – Smith via Vahe Gregorian

“I mentioned to the team that this isn’t college football. This isn’t the end of the season.” – Andy Reid

“This is not the end of the Kansas City Chiefs; this is not the start of a downslide. There’s too many strong-minded players in here to say, ‘Wow, what are we going to do now? We didn’t win nine games in a row by coincidence. So that gives us a lot of confidence going forward. Hey, I know we’ve lost three in a row. But I’ve been in this league a long time. Ups and downs happen.” – Dunta Robinson

“Those things are going to happen. It’s my job just to keep throwing them. I certainly miss my fair share as well. That’s the nature of the passing game. You’re striving for perfection and you would love to hit every single one, but it’s not going to happen. I think, especially in the last few weeks we have done a great job of just continuing to attack and take shots at times.” – Smith on the drops

“We were in the red zone twice and didn’t score. We score those two times in the red zone, we get 42 points and win the game.” – Geoff Schwartz



Jamaal Charles eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards for the season for the fourth time in his career. He is the first Chiefs running back to have four 1,000 yard seasons with the club.

– Charles also surpassed the 1,000 carry mark for his career, making him the fifth Chiefs back to have 1,000 carries with the club. He is 154 carries behind Ed Podolak for fourth place and 372 carries behind Larry Johnson for first.

– Even more Charles. Charles passed Abner Haynes and Priest Holmes for third all-time in franchise total (rushing, receiving, return yards) career yards. He’s still 2,400 yards behind Tony Gonzalez for second place and 3,800 yards behind Dante Hall for first.

– Chiefs have scored 66 points in their last two games after scoring 73 points in their previous four games.

Knile Davis 108-yard touchdown return was the longest in franchise history, breaking Noland Smith‘s record of 106. Smith also returned that kick against Denver.

– Alex Smith is now 26 yards behind Tyler Thigpen for most rushing yards for a Chiefs’ quarterback in a season.
