Kansas City Chiefs Notes, Quotes 2008-11-29
--Herm Edwards' name has been linked to the coaching vacancy at his college alma mater, San Diego State, which fired Chuck Long as its head football coach recently.


But Edwards had a well-rehearsed non-denial denial ready when the question came up at his weekly media briefing Tuesday.

"I've already got a college team," said the coach of the very young Kansas City Chiefs.

--Another vintage Hermism, this time when asked Thursday if he had any Thanksgiving Day message he wanted to convey.

"I'm thankful for all the people who serve -- the military, policemen, firemen," said Edwards, the son of a career military man.

"They do all the things we take for granted, so we all should express our thanks to them. What they do goes unnoticed until we need them."

--Quarterback Tyler Thigpen knows he has to come back strong from his first three-turnover day since his unexpected first career start in Week 3 at Atlanta produced a three-interception day in which he had a 23.8 passer rating.

"It's got to be one game and clear," Thigpen said Wednesday as he prepared for his sixth career start. "You can't dwell on the past. You try to learn from your mistakes Monday (in video reviews), then move on.

--The Chiefs are trying to become the first NFL visitor to win in six consecutive years at Oakland. The Coliseum was the site of their last road victory, coming on Oct. 21, 2007.

--Four of Kansas City's five consecutive wins in Oakland have been decided by seven points or less.

--With only six sacks as a team in 11 games, the Chiefs might break the NFL record for sack futility in a 16-game season. The Baltimore Colts got only 13 sacks in a 16-game season in 1981.

BY THE NUMBERS: 1-19 -- Kansas City's record in its last 20 games dating back to the midpoint of the 2007 season.

54 -- Club-record points the Chiefs yielded to Buffalo last week. Also the number of points the Bills had scored in their previous three games combined before coming into Kansas City.

462 -- Season-high yards yielded by the Chiefs against the Bills.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "You can't lose sight of the fact that we're trying to build a football team, and to do that you need players. We knew we were going young, that we were going to draft players and play them. The only way we were going to get (extra) players was through the Jared Allen trade." -- Herm Edwards, whose Chiefs have only six sacks as a team this year, defending the offseason trade of NFL sack leader Jared Allen, who had 15.5 sacks last year, to the Vikings for three additional draft picks, one used on first-round pick Branden Albert.
