OTC: Many Already Counting Denver As Dead Against Chiefs


“Let’s move on. Let’s talk about San Diego.”
Jack Harry, making the point to Kietzman on Wednesday that a Chiefs’ win over Denver is a foregone conclusion and there was no reason to discuss it, 810 AM
GH: Despite the flogging the Chiefs took in Denver, many members of the media and the Chiefs fan base think the Chiefs can just chuck their helmets on the field Sunday afternoon and get a W. Read on.
“I think the Chiefs are going to win. I like their chances a lot.”
Kevin Kietzman, 810 AM
“I think it would be one of the bigger shockers of the weekend if the Chiefs were to lose to the Broncos this weekend. … I don’t think there is a Chiefs fan out there who thinks there is much of a chance the Chiefs will lose this game to Denver.”
Danny Clinkscale, 810 AM
“I heard Jack (Harry predict an easy Chiefs win). And if the Chiefs lose, him and Danny (Clinkscale) will be crucifying the Chiefs on the postgame show.”
Mitch Holthus, 810 AM
GH: Mitch is NOT one of those who thinks the Broncos will go quietly into that good night. In fact, Mitch sounds downright scared at a DefCon Elway level. Read on.
“For the life of me, I don’t know why anybody would be talking about San Diego until Sunday at six o’clock. … “This will be a hard game. Orton can play and he’s underrated. The Chiefs fans need to realize this will be a hard game. They need to come to the Chiefs’ stadium rockin’. Where are people getting that? I have no clue why people are thinking that way! The worst thing you can do in the NFL when you get in this situation is to look past some game.”
Mitch Holthus, 810 AM
GH: Denver has three wins and a coach who is not just on the hot seat, his ass is redder than Rudolph’s best appendage. With the game at Arrowhead and Todd Haley’s ShakeGate fueling the read hoard, this one should be a laugher for the Chiefs. But something tells me Romeo’s defense will keep this one a ballgame for four quarters – which will be an improvement over their last meeting.
“Everybody has already put that (Denver game) in the (Chiefs’) win column. Everybody. It’s scary because I think that’s also the mindset of the team.”
Soren Petro, 810 AM
GH: I can’t imagine the Chiefs’ players think this one is an automatic win – not after the Bronco beating they took in Denver. If they do, Scott Todd are far from having their “right 53.”
“I was absolutely shocked and in horror. I couldn’t believe that happened.”
Kevin Kietzman, on Denver jumping out to a 35-0 lead in the two teams’ last meeting, 810 AM
GH: And I thought KK was talking about his last weigh in on the Cookie Diet scale.
“Make no mistake about it; this team is clicking on offense for two reasons. One is Matt Cassel and the other is Dwayne Bowe. Make no mistake; it’s because of the pass.”
Tim Grunhard, 810 AM
GH: Grunhard surprised me with this take. An offensive lineman will almost always point to the running game as the heart of a team’s success. Which is what I believe he should have done. Cassel and Bowe owe their newfound relationship to Jamaal Charles and his fleet feet.
“I think this is one of the more special players to come through Kansas City in a long, long time.”
Kent Babb, on the Chiefs Jamaal Charles, 610 AM
GH: I have not felt this excited about a Chiefs’ skill-position player’s talents since Priest Holmes was making Trent Green look like a Pro-Bowl quarterback. Charles is the straw that stirs the Chiefs hot chocolate. Let’s hope he keeps surfing those cocoa smooth waves right through January.
“I don’t particularly like ‘em.”
Mitch Holthus, on his feelings toward the Broncos, 810 AM
GH: It will be interesting to see how ugly Arrowhead gets this Sunday. Josh McDaniels is saying all the right things to defuse the fuss but I don’t think many Chiefs fans are listening. Dan Beebe better steer clear of this one.
“The Kingdom would make the biggest mistake in years if they underestimate this (Denver) game. I’m just gonna put the word out there.”
Mitch Holthus, 810 AM
GH: How about we put this word out there – this ain’t The Kingdom. Matter of fact, there ain’t no “Kingdom.” Every time Holthus refers to the Chiefs fan base in this lexicon, I want to jab one of the Wicked Witch’s guard’s spears up his draw bridge. Tally-ho!
“I think people should be talking about Charlie Weis becoming a head coach in the NFL.”
Soren Petro, who gushed profusely this week about how Weis is woefully underappreciated as an offensive genius, 810 AM
“Make no mistake about it; Charlie Weis could be a head coach in the NFL. I think the mistake he made is that he treated his college guys like pro guys.”
Tim Grunhard, 810 AM
GH: Did either of these guys see Notre Dame play under Scooter’s tutelage? They didn’t fire ‘ol Chuck still owing him half of Rome because he was killing it with the Leprechauns.
“I’ll be a prophet here. The city will someday, in my opinion, love this guy (Matt Cassel). He’s not Elvis Grbac. He’s not Steve Bono. He’s closer to Rich Gannon than anything else in personality. This city will love him. It’s probably going to take winning a playoff game at some point but once they get to that point they are gonna love this guy like they love Lenny.”
Mitch Holthus, 810 AM
GH: Mitch says some crazy, off-the-crapper clatter at times. But invoking the hallowed name of Lenny in comparable sense to Matt Cassel is the purest example of Crazy Uncle Mitch channeling Bill Grigsby. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Mitch on the next Chiefs radio broadcast let out an extended “Prrrrriccce Chhoppperrrrrrrr.”
“I swear to God, if the Chiefs were playing Phillip Rivers next week I’d tell them to rip his helmet off and punch him in the face and get ejected from the game, because it is allowed in the National Football League. Bloodying Phillip Rivers is worth $25,000.”
Bob Fescoe, who is unhappy that the NFL only fined Cortland Finnegan and Andre Johnson $25K for fighting but has fined players more for helmet-to-helmet hits, 610 AM
GH: I often wonder if Fescoe was awake for any of his broadcasting classes at KU.

  1. Eric B in KC says:

    More than a Chiefs Super Bowl victory…
    …my biggest wish is that the Chiefs sh*tcan Holthus. What an arrogant sounding blowhard. When KK and that d-bag start tongue-bathing each other, I’m willing to bet Nick Wright’s ratings see a spike.

    Mitch, "King Carl" is gone and with him went the "Kingdom" that hadn’t seen a playoff victory in 16 years. You’re clinging to it like a desperate, jilted ex. Give it up and move on. Everybody else has. You sound ridiculous.

  2. chuck says:

    As of 3:42 AM Thurs Morn-its
    Chiefs minus 6 in Vegas everywhere. ——————————-No diss Eric, but fuckin Hothus is hilarious.———-I luv that stupid shit he says. Its only a matter of time before he says somehting so extemporaneously dissociatve, that is instantly becomes part of the lexicon for decades.—————-Don’t get me wrong, its weird, but jeeze it is very funny. JMO.———Hey, how about this, Hothus includes the phrase, "Jump the Shark" after an interception, or, a sack, I can’t think of how he will do it, because he does it by accident, but it will be some malapropistic phraseology that will just have us laughing our fuckin asses off for years.———–The guy kinda reminds me of those weird Yogi quotes in baseball, but not as funny, yet…Holthus is hilarious.——–Maybe Holthus has a couple hours of History credits, or was watching the History channel before the game. —-"TOUCHDOWN KANSAS CITY!!!! ITS HITLER THROUGH POLAND NOW AND THE BRONCOS MUST THINK ITS SEPT OF 39!!!!!" ——The guy just kills me, he is funny.

  3. chuck says:

    Ok, How about this,
    Chiefs, 3rd and goal from the 1. Holthus, "JAMAL CHARLES GETS THE BALL LEAPS OVER THE PILE !!! TOUCHDOWN KANSAS CITY!!!! WOW LEN HE REALLY JUMPED THE SHARK THAT TIME!!!—The guy is funny, really.

  4. mark x says:

    I’m counting them dead too, Greg ….
    Greg, I doubt the Chiefs players are looking past the Broncos. I

  5. Guy Who Says What Others Think says:

    Holtus = CHEESEDICK
    This guy has always been an arrogant handjob who says the dumbest, cheesiest things I’ve ever heard. "The Kingdom"?? Kingdom of what? Kingdom of Faceplant and Fail? That’s about all Queef fans have in their "kingdom". Mitch Ass-Holtus needs be sent back to Mancrappin KS where he came from. There, the purple clad, dirt-merchant farmers humping their sheep will appreciate his never ending stream of homerish cheddar.

    the truth and nothing but the truth….
    1. Mitch has excitement. For those long tme chiefs fans he’s fun..
    and even with his cornball phrases…we love this guy..he’s a homer
    and he loves the chiefs.
    2. bowe get shut down….this weekend.. No more patsys at d.b.
    The broncos have two of the best one on one d.b.s in afc…maybe
    the league…they know how to shut down a receiver. Cassel has to
    do the short passes to charles and throw to moeaki to win this one.
    this is a tough game…but the true fans will be at arrohead and the
    fans are gonna be lit up to see the chiefs win. Lots of booze…
    lots of shots….and now that haley and cassel and bowe and charles
    have proven themselves…the fans in kc will be screaming louder than
    during the san diego game….
    3. I hate it…but my heart says kc…my brain says denver…unless
    cassell can get the ball to receivers other than bowe who will be
    haraasedd all day long. If casell can get the ball to other receivers..
    if the running game is on track…it could be kc by 14….plus we all
    know haley is gonna get the team pumped for this game…win this
    game and basically the chiefs are in the playoffs.
    4. MU takes another hit in the bowl games. I’m sure they’ll be rlegated
    to another weak bowl this year. Alden needs to take some lessons from
    lew perkins and pull out some big bucks.
    5. Mellinger has totally taken over for whitlock and pos. His articles
    are sharp…precise and probably some of the best writing the star
    has seeon.

  7. chuck says:

    Guy who says what others think
    That was pretty funny, heh heh.

  8. chuck says:

    Oh yeah, Chiefs 38, Bronco 17
    🙂 —-I am such a homer.

  9. Plainsman says:

    Holthaus is bad…very bad
    Mitch Holthuas is an embarrassment to the Chiefs and Kansas City. He’s even worse than Ryan Lebfevere. All Native American tribes go by "nation" i.e. Cherokee nation, Sioux nation, etc. Where in the world did Holthaus get the idea to refer to Cheifs fans as a "Kingdom?" It’s non-sensical. He has to be the only person to ever call Larry Johnson "The Centaur." Nothing the guy comes up with catches on, yet he persists. Holthaus must be as stupid in real-life as he seems to be on the radio.

  10. bschloz says:

    Drink The Nectar
    I only listen to radio if I’m forced to ….but I have to say I like Holthus…. yeah he’s is a poor mans Harlan….but the goofy bastard makes me laugh…..they really need to tell Leonard its time just like HBO did. That is one negative sumbitch….everything is Ill-Advised this and Ill-Advised that……..Thanks Harley….Why Hanukkah Harry was kind enough to drop in and deliver me– black socks—some stationary—and a 12 pack of light bulbs.
