"It's good to have him back. ... We'll get him back in there and get him into football shape now. He's in great shape. It's just [a matter of] getting him back into football shape.'' Berry, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, is the Chiefs' franchise player.

Here's Why The Chip Kelly Hire Won't Work For The 49ers
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The San Francisco 49ers have found their man, and it's not pretty. Chip Kelly, who went 26-21 without a single playoff victory during his three-year tenure in Philadelphia, will take over for the 49ers' recently fired head coach, Jim Tomsula. Kelly, 52, reportedly inked a four-year deal worth $24 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He joins a team beleaguered by personnel issues, particularly those surrounding quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The 28-year-old is coming off the worst season of his career, in which he was benched for journeyman backup Blaine Gabbert, whose woeful sub-56 percent completion percentage speaks for itself. Whether or not Kaepernick ever becomes a pure drop-back passer, his success under Kelly's guidance seems unlikely. But the incessant and relentless drama around Kaepernick also overshadows the fact that San Francisco suffers from a slew of other issues -- gaping holes on the offensive line, a shortage of receivers and a defense that ranked 29th ...

The NFL Divisional Playoff Games Will Come Down To This
Huffington Post - about 1 year
  The NFL's wacky wild-card weekend is in the books, and for those who need a quick refresher, it was an unprecedented couple of days. For the first time in playoff history, all four road teams won in either a wild-card or a divisional round. Two of those teams, Seattle and Pittsburgh, needed nothing short of a miracle to move on. The other two, Green Bay and Kansas City, were flat-out dominant against the wildly overmatched Washington and Houston.  With that in mind, here are the key factors to each game in round two. Kansas City at New England -- 4:35 p.m. EST, Saturday (CBS) The last time these two met was a Week 4 battle last season in which Tom Brady endured one of the worst losses of his career while throwing for a measly 159 yards and two picks. You know what came next. Expect something much different this Saturday, but don't rule out Andy Reid, whose red-hot Chiefs have rattled off 11 straight wins to become the first 1-5 team in 45 years to make the playoffs. ...

Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin suffers strained knee in third quarter of wild-card game
Houston Chronicle - about 1 year
Chiefs star receiver and team leader Jeremy Maclin had what coach Andy Reid said was a strained knee suffered in the third quarter. “He’ll have an MRI (on Sunday), and we’ll see where he’s at with that,” Reid said. Maclin exited the game, and later left the sidelines on a cart, on what turned out to be a 94-yard touchdown drive late in the third quarter. “You never want to see somebody go down, and we know how much Jeremy means to us,” quarterback Alex Smith said of the former Missouri standout. Maclin’s replacement, Chris Conley, capped the long drive with a 9-yard touchdown catch. “Those are all of Jeremy’s looks (on routes), so for Chris to come in and not even blink and make the catch like he did, says a lot about the entire (receiving) group,” Smith said. brent.zwerneman@chron.com twitter.com/brentzwerneman

Andy Reid reflects on Chiefs, Texans’ respective turnarounds since season-opener
Houston Chronicle - about 1 year
The Texans and the Kansas City Chiefs both reached challenging crossroads this season before engineering dramatic turnarounds along their separate pathways to Saturday’s AFC wild-card playoff game at NRG Stadium. The 9-7 Texans endured a 2-5 start, including their season-opening 27-20 loss to the Chiefs, and a four-man quarterback carousel. The 11-5 Chiefs lost star running back Jamaal Charles for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, rebounding impressively from a 1-5 start to hit the postseason on an NFL-best 10-game winning streak. “I think both teams have probably changed a little bit since that first week,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid told Houston reporters during a Tuesday conference call. “We respect the heck out of them. They are a good football team. They shut us out in the second half, we are aware of that and we have to prepare like crazy to play against the Texans, well-coached and good players.” For the Texans, settling on Brian Hoyer as their starting quart ...

Texans coach Bill O’Brien in a good mood after clinching division title
Houston Chronicle - about 1 year
Coach Bill O’Brien was in a good mood Monday when he met with the media for the first time since defeating Jacksonville 30-6 and winning the AFC South title. O’Brien was alternately serious, funny and humbled when he was asked about owner Bob McNair presenting him with a game ball after the victory over the Jaguars. “I felt good about that, but that’s a team football to me,” O’Brien said. Asked about getting so angry during the game he threw his headset, O’Brien said, “I dropped it.” So why didn’t he get an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty? “Two Irish guys; he forgave me,” he said. The Texans host Kansas City in the wild-card round Saturday. The Chiefs beat the Texans 27-20 in the first game of the season at NRG Stadium. O’Brien respects the terrific coaching job Andy Reid and his staff have done bouncing back from a 1-5 start with a 10-game winning streak. He’s also excited to have the game at home rather than Arrowhead Stadium. “It’s pretty neat because you get a seco ...
