TSN: Thigpen Gives Chiefs Hope

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Tyler Thigpen (4) throws over ...
The bad news for the Kansas City Chiefs is that they lost yet another football game, falling to 1-6 in a 28-24 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday.

The good news, for those who wish to find it, is that Tyler Thigpen is in fact a living, breathing NFL quarterback.

That fact was certainly debatable in Thigpen's first start, against the Falcons back in Week 3. The second-year-pro put up a 23.8 passer rating in that game, a 38-14 loss, following which he was politely kicked back down the depth chart where it seemed he belonged.

Then, when Brodie Croyle (knee) and Damon Huard (hand) were lost for the season in a Week 7 loss to the Titans, Thigpen was cast back in the spotlight basically by default, though it seemed to some that he was just temporarily filling a void until someone more dependable could be signed and acquainted with Chan Gailey's offensive system.

The oddsmakers certainly thought little of Thigpen heading into the contest. They installed the Chiefs as 13-point underdogs at the Meadowlands, and Kansas City was a popular pick to fall in "suicide" leagues from coast to coast.

Thigpen thumbed his nose at the critics in the defeat, completing 25-of-36 passes for 280 yards with two touchdowns and zero turnovers, and was another legendary Brett Favre drive from establishing his first win as an NFL starter. The Coastal Carolina product's 280 yards were the most by a Kansas City quarterback this season, and his 110.9 rating was the best by a Chiefs signal- caller on the road since last year.

What's more, Thigpen proved that he can keep Kansas City in a football game against a quality opponent, which is handy given that he's likely to start against four of them - the Buccaneers, Chargers, Saints, and Bills - in his next four games.

"Tyler played outstanding," said Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez, who caught six passes for 79 yards and a touchdown. "He played better than I thought he was going to play. I know he surprised everybody. I don't care what anybody said, if they thought he was going to go out there and play the way he did then they're lying. That's a credit to him. He just came out and said who cares what all the critics think. He had good practices all week, but the way he came out and played today, I'm so proud of him and I think you have to give credit to the coaches for putting him in a position to be successful."

Williamson: The key to Herman Edwards keeping his job

If Herman Edwards is going to remain the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, he will need more of the kind of effort he got from the Chiefs on Sunday.

It is clear that Chiefs' ownership likes Edwards and word is the Clark family would like to keep Edwards as the team maneuvers through a rebuilding phase that could take a few years before dividends are paid. But no coach can be saved if this team isn't competitive.

That was the problem with Edwards' team going into Sunday's game against the Jets. In Kansas City's previous two games, losses to Carolina and Tennessee, it was outscored by a combined score of 68-10. The Chiefs were simply not competitive in those games.

That was worrisome for Edwards' future. Even though this team is young, it is his job to coach them up and keep them in games. If Kansas City takes steps backwards as the season progresses that means the youngsters aren't getting coached properly.

However, Edwards and his team made significant strides Sunday against the Jets. Yes, New York won the game, 28-24, but the Chiefs fought hard all game long. And they were in the game from start to finish and they could have easily won the game.

Suddenly, the youngsters showed life. That was not the case in the past month or so. Edwards' coaching worked for the most part Sunday. His team made progress. That's what ownership wants to see.

CULPEPPER CANCELS VISIT WITH CHIEFS

Daunte Culpepper will not be a Kansas City Chief.

Culpepper had a visit scheduled for tomorrow, but Jay Glazer of Fox Sports is reporting that Culpepper told the Chiefs today that he isn’t going to make the trip to Kansas City because he has a better opportunity with another team. It’s not known which team Culpepper has an offer from.

Glazer also reports that Culpepper told teams last week that he wanted to sign a contract for more than just the rest of this season, and that he wanted a 2009 payment of $10 million or more

Chiefs cool on signing Culpepper after Thigpen's strong performance

The Kansas City Chiefs may not be as eager to sign former Pro Bowl quarterback Daunte Culpepper as many people thought.

Although adding the veteran quarterback to the roster remained a possibility, coach Herm Edwards indicated Monday that Culpepper may not even come in for an interview.

Culpepper, a three-time Pro Bowler with Minnesota, is the biggest name out there who might be available. And the Chiefs have had a big quarterback need since their top two, Brodie Croyle and Damon Huard, went out for the year with injuries.

But third-teamer Tyler Thigpen, in just his second NFL start, played much better than expected in a 28-24 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday.

Before suffering a serious knee injury in 2005, Culpepper was one of the league's most productive quarterbacks.

ESPN: Chiefs' Johnson charged for spitting in woman's face, won't play for now

Kansas City running back Larry Johnson, already facing possible suspension by the NFL, was charged Monday with simple assault for spitting his drink in a woman's face.

Several hours later, the Chiefs indicated the two-time Pro Bowl running back would not play for the foreseeable future.

The charge is the second such count the former Pro Bowler is facing.

Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp said Johnson turned himself in and was released after posting a $500 bond.

Simple assault is a municipal charge, similar to a traffic ticket, and carries a maximum penalty of a $500 fine and 180 days in jail. But the two-time Pro Bowler, who signed the biggest contract in Chiefs history about 15 months ago, could be in much deeper trouble with the league.

This is the fourth time in five years he's been accused of assaulting a woman and the Chiefs acknowledged last week the NFL was looking into the latest incident.

He was deactivated for the past two games for breaking team rules. But in a written statement Monday, Chiefs president and general manager Carl Peterson left little doubt the team's highest-paid player would be absent again this week regardless of what action the league might take.

Williamson: Favre gets the glory, Thigpen opens eyes

Brett Favre's latest magic show was already complete. Yet another chapter in Favre's storied comeback had already been published.

It was in the books. Favre doesn't play well -- until he has to. Then, his team wins the game. Done deal.

But Tyler Thigpen kept coming. The Kansas City Chiefs' No. 4 was pressing the universe's No. 4. Scrambling. Command of the offense. Laser throws. Last-minute poise. Yes, Thigpen looked familiar out there.

On a day Favre had his most exciting win for the Jets, it was Thigpen who kept coming off his stool and trying to make Favre work harder. In the end, the Chiefs' and Thigpen's counters weren't enough. Thigpen's dreams expired at the Jets' 31-yard line with 21 seconds to go.

Officially, it was Favre's day as the Jets beat the Chiefs 28-24. Favre made up for three grotesque interceptions by hitting Laveranues Coles for a 15-yard touchdown with exactly a minute to go in the game. That's how the football world will remember this one.

But in Kansas City, it could have a greater significance. It could be remembered as the day Thigpen showed he does have what it takes to be an NFL quarterback. It could be remembered as the day the Chiefs stood up and fought, and showed the league they won't take this youth movement lightly, even if they did fall to 1-6.

In spite of the heartbreak, Sunday's game was a lot more tolerable for the Chiefs than their past two games, in which they were beaten by a total of 68-10.

And Thigpen was a big reason why things evened out a bit this week.

Jets 28, Chiefs 24: Did Brett Favre Call the Chiefs Too?

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez (88) beats out New ...

Perhaps Brett Favre should start trying to learn the Jets offense instead of helping other teams bone up on the Packers.

Don't be fooled by sycophantic announcers who say Favre pulled out another last-second victory with a gutsy touchdown pass to Laveranues Coles. He was outplayed by Tyler Thigpen, threw an interception that should have been a game-breaker in the fourth quarter, and looked less like a Hall-of-Famer than a should-be CFLer.

Not that he should be singled out. This was an abysmal performance by the Jets and it's only the weakness of the Chiefs that allowed them to hang around long enough to steal a win. If Derrick Johnson doesn't drop an interception and probable touchdown in the third quarter, the Jets are finished. If the Chiefs offense is able to pick up one first down in the fourth quarter, the Jets are finished.

The latter was more surprising because the Jets spent most of the afternoon making Thigpen look like Joe Montana. Despite having only one offensive weapon in Dwayne Bowe and facing a Jets rush that came up with four sacks, Thigpen routinely made plays and didn't turn the ball over. It was the finest quarterbacking performance of the year for Kansas City and Thigpen should have the job for the next few weeks, if not the rest of the season.

Richardson Finally Gets His Chance vs. the Chiefs

For the first time in his NFL career, Jets fullback Tony Richardson will face the Kansas City Chiefs this afternoon at the Meadowlands.

“I think last year it probably would have had a little bit more meaning. This year it’s just a football game,” Richardson said. “I’ve been gone for three years now and there are a lot of brand new faces and a lot of young guys I don’t know.” Richardson, in his 14th NFL season out of Auburn, spent 1994 on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad before an 11-season Chiefs run from 19952005. Kansas City captured the AFC West in ’95, ’97 and 2003 but failed to win a postseason game each of those years.
