Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys Stitched

    After nine NFL
    seasons Carlos Hyde
    , wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is officially calling it a career.The
    30-year-old Maclin announced his decision in front of friends and family on
    Sunday, and he quickly confirmed the news to the world via Twitter:Maclin was
    born in Kirkwood, Missouri and became a St. Louis high school football legend
    over his prep career at Kirkwood High School. He attended the University of
    Missouri, and after tearing his ACL in the summer preceding what was to be his
    true freshman season, he bounced back in spectacular fashion, becoming a
    first-team All-American as both a receiver and an all-purpose player as a
    redshirt freshman for the 12-2 Tigers. He was again dominant as a sophomore,
    leading the nation in all-purpose yards per game (202.36) as the Tigers went
    10-4 and earned a victory in the Alamo Bowl. Over those two seasons, he managed
    to push himself to fifth on Mizzou’s all-time receiving yards leaderboard (2,778
    yards), third in receiving touchdowns (22), fifth in yards from scrimmage (2,983
    yards) and fourth in total touchdowns (33).Maclin declared for the draft after
    that season and went on to be selected 19th overall by the Philadelphia Eagles
    in the 2009 NFL Draft. He spent six seasons in Philadelphia — including 2013,
    which was spent entirely on injured reserve with another torn ACL — before
    returning to his home state and signing with the Chiefs prior to the 2015
    campaign. He remained in Kansas City for two seasons before joining the
    Baltimore Ravens in 2017 for his final NFL campaign.Maclin, who was out of the
    NFL for the entire 2018 season, finishes his pro career with 114 games played,
    514 receptions, 5,835 receiving yards and 49 touchdowns. 100View Gallery Gallery:View from the

    market rallies are dependent upon volume for confirmation. The trend may appear
    good on the surface as the market rises, but if the rally is driven by only a
    few stocks — or light trading — many will believe it’s not real.Once technical
    analysts see enough volume and breadth to confirm the direction of the market,
    they see it as confirmation that the surface trend has staying power. With
    Patrick Mahomes lighting it up and getting the team off to such a fast
    start Juan

    , the Kansas City Chiefs have been among the most
    talked-about teams in the NFL. Some may have not believed the Chiefs (and
    Mahomes) were elite because of the small sample size. But with each week,
    Mahomes and the team have eliminated doubts and added different kinds of wins to
    their resume.This week, it was the Chiefs defense that stepped up with a
    near-complete shutdown of a good Cincinnati Bengals offense.They even added a
    defensive touchdown! The Chiefs have proven enough over the first seven games to
    confirm their trend. If you weren’t bullish on the 2018 season in Kansas City,
    you should be now.And as you’ll see in this week’s stock report, there are
    plenty of positives in each category.Stock UPPhoto by Christian Petersen/Getty
    ImagesBobsitivity: The much-maligned Chiefs defensive coordinator Chiefs might
    be showing he’s smarter than he’s usually credited. Sutton’s defense was
    downright dominant on Sunday night, showing that they can help win games — not
    just hold on for dear life. The defense allowed just 10 points, 174 passing
    yards and 65 rushing yards.We’re not used to seeing an opponent completely shut
    down like that.The Chiefs have started to get more production out of their young
    players, have shown they can influence games with their pass rush, and even come
    up with turnovers in recent weeks. Is it possible that it wasn’t Sutton’s scheme
    that has been the biggest problem, but rather that they just needed personnel to
    step up?Brett Veach: Veach’s honeymoon with Chiefs fans appeared to be ending.
    His defense-heavy draft hadn’t yielded contributors, and the ‘dynamic’ inside
    linebackers hand-picked by the Chiefs general manager were showing their
    limitations. All isn’t forgotten after a good week, but we might just be seeing
    the plan come together.The rookies are earning their way on the field and
    filling roles they were drafted to fill. The defense has been good enough to get
    to 6-1 without Eric Berry, and with Justin Houston missing time. The offense has
    been dominant enough to carry the team, and cover up for weaknesses. This team
    is a contender, and the GM deserves credit as his players live up to potential —
    even if it takes a few weeks.Linebacker Dorian O’Daniel: The single most
    significant development from this week’s game is the emergence of number 44.
    O’Daniel was in for 42% (25) of the defensive snaps against the Bengals, and he
    made the most of them. Andy Reid singled out Dorian’s contributions this week,
    and it was obvious to most fans that O’Daniel belonged on the field. He seems
    competent in coverage, which is a big upgrade. But his closing speed and hitting
    ability really stood out this week. He appears to be developing into the player
    we hoped he would be, and the guy that fills the biggest need on the team.Kareem
    Hunt: It’s not just that he’s been productive, or that he’s provided a balance
    to the passing offense.
    Instead Juan Thornhill

    , it’s the way in which Hunt goes about his
    business that is the most impressive. The physical gifts that make him a special
    back — including speed, hands and elite balance (which may be most important of
    all) — only take a player so far. Hunt is proving that he has the attitude,
    durability, and heart of a guy that can carry a team when his number is
    called.Spencer Ware: After doing nothing with his opportunities last week,
    Ware’s stock was down. Now it appears there’s some volatility in the stock of a
    backup running back in this offense. Ware broke through with a 34-yard run and a
    22-yard reception against Cincinnati, averaging 7.4 yards per rush and 10 yards
    per catch. When the Chiefs run for nearly 200 yards, there is plenty of credit
    to go around.Ware certainly earned it this week.Others trending in a bullish
    direction this week: Ben Niemann, Eric Murray, Demarcus Robinson, Demetrius
    Harris, Sammy Watkins, Jordan Lucas, Breeland SpeaksStock DOWNOffensive line
    depth: Another week, and another lineman goes on injured reserve. Mahomes makes
    this group look better than they are, but eventually, they are going to run out
    of guys to plug into the lineup. A tip of the hat here to Jordan Devey, who
    tried to finish out this game with one arm.Defensive back Josh Shaw: It’s not
    that Shaw has been terrible, but he is going to need to make his case for
    sticking around — especially with Daniel Sorensen coming back. I’m not sure he’s
    done enough.Quarterback Chad Henne: I’m clearly struggling to find guys to
    complain about this week, so I’ll go with Henne here. My fantasy teams aside, I
    would have liked to see Henne get in the game in the fourth quarter this

    trending in a bearish direction this week: nobody, really.Stock FLAT Photo by
    Peter Aiken/Getty ImagesQuarterback Patrick Mahomes: At this point, we know who
    Mahomes is, and it’s glorious. It’s hard to imagine his stock going any higher
    than it already is.(But whom am I kidding?We all know it will).In the next few
    weeks, the schedule eases up, and the Chiefs won’t need anything extraordinary
    from Mahomes in order to keep the season on track. But at this point, he’s
    routinely extraordinary.Speaking of extraordinary... I agree with Matt Lane.On
    this play, how in the world can he physically do that?Wide receiver Tyreek Hill:
    Don’t listen to Tyreek when he focuses on the easy touchdown he dropped. He’s
    just being humble. Like Mahomes, Hill is on the flat list only because he’s on a
    plateau, looking down at the rest of the league. The Chiefs have elite,
    All-Pro-level players at quarterback, running back, tight end and (at least one)
    wide receiver. Hill is the most dangerous player in the game — and the most
    exciting.He’s right up there on the plateau with Mahomes and the rest.
    Linebackers Anthony Hitchens and Reggie Ragland: They seemed to play a bit
    better this week, but not enough for me to be bullish on them just yet.Others
