John Madden on Chiefs

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Hall of Famer John Madden admits surprise by the 3-0 start by the Chiefs, but says after watching Sunday’s victory over San Francisco, he’s know a believer.

Here’s Madden:

“Going into Sunday, those were the two teams (Chiefs and Buccaneers)  I really didn’t believe in that were undefeated. After watching [Sunday], I kind of believe in Kansas City because they look like they’ve really started to turn things around.

“They make you blink your eyes, and maybe it’s that you didn’t pay a lot of attention to them the last couple years. They brought a lot of new players in, new coaches — Charlie Weis, Romeo Crennel — and, hell, they look pretty good.

“I don’t know if they’re ready to do great things as a playoff team, but they’re a hell of a lot better than the Kansas City team that I last looked at.”

    LOL Already have it Dave love kicking butt with my Chiefs online. Just goes to show you even the experts can’t possibly pay attention to all 32 teams. I’ve been saying since last yr Haley has the team going in the right direction. From draft to picking up Romeo and Charlie. You only can keep making good decisions before you start seeing things payoff. But Big UPS to Clark Hunt he’s the best owner in the league. He set the foundation in getting Pioli and the rest is becoming history.

    Thats right Edward. The groundwork for a Dynasty is still in it’s infancy.
    Go Chiefs.

    I love hearing Madden say that! It’s been too long. However, I think we’re headed for two straight losses. I hope the Chiefs fanbase is able to keep believing in the team without a major melt down. I know the other shoe will drop. As Bob said, this team isn’t talented enough to be a playoff team. Do you still feel that way BOB? I do, but beating Indy might change my mind. I don’t expect that to happen though.

    joshua, while we may be overmatched as far as “skill” is concerned, talent is another issue (see numerous todd haley press conf) plus, we shouldn’t underestimate the game planning ability of Haley, weis and romeo!
    Bob or anyone, do we know how romeo led defenses have done against Peyton Manning in the past??? Is there anyone w/ more time than me that can look this up??? :)
