After turning in an impressive 2010 campaign, most of us knew the Chiefs were somewhat of a pretender. Very few expected Kansas City to come out this season and enjoy the type of success they had a year ago. When Jamaal Charles went down with a season-ending injury, common sense would tell you the Chiefs playoff hopes went down with him. That was before they came back and ripped off three wins in a row. Given the current winning streak, Todd Haley has decided it’s not too early for a playoff beard. Check out this picture that Shutdown Corner passed along:
“This thing is getting gnarly,” Haley told the Kansas City Star on Sunday. “It’s really uncomfortable.”
Who really knows if it’s the bean bag toss game, the beard, or the fact that the Chiefs have played terrible opponents and rusty quarterbacks. All that matters is they’re winning games and staying in the hunt. However, it’s important to note that if Haley thinks his rally beard is going to rival L.B.’s Bruins Stanley Cup beard, he’s sorely mistaken.
