Considering what everyone was saying about Huard after the first game, I'm glad to see him get some recognition for his recent play.

Unless they switched conferences lately, I think Arizona is still in the NFC. :)

Huard and Tynes Each Earn AFC Player of the Week Honors
Oct 10, 2006, 3:22:33 PM

The National Football League informed the Chiefs on Tuesday that QB Damon Huard has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week and K Lawrence Tynes has earned AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors for their performances against the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday. This is the first time Huard has been chosen for the award and the second such honor for Tynes, who also claimed the honor after a 30-20 win at Miami (10/21/05). This marks the first time the Chiefs have had two AFC Player of the Week award winners in the same week since a 24-17 win over San Francisco (9/11/94) when QB Joe Montana and LB Derrick Thomas won Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week honors, respectively.

Huard (6-3, 218) rallied the Chiefs from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit, as the Chiefs won their first road contest of the season with a 23-20 victory at Arizona. Filling in for an injured QB Trent Green, Huard completed a career-high 26 of 38 passes for a personal-best 288 yards with two TDs and zero INTs, good for an impressive passer rating of 108.2. He tossed TD passes of nine and 15 yards before completing a 78-yard pass to RB Larry Johnson that set up the game-winning field goal.

Huard owns a 7-2 record as a starter in his 10th season in the NFL after joining the Chiefs as a free agent in 2004. The University of Washington product has connected on 73 of 104 throws for 769 yards with five TDs for a 107.4 rating and has added five carries for 11 yards in 2006. His 107.4 passer rating and 71.2 completion percentage both rank second in the NFL. Only St. Louis QB Marc Bulger (169 attempts) owns more passes without an INT this season that Huard.

Tynes (6-1, 202) connected on all three of his field goal attempts last Sunday including a game-winning 19-yarder with 1:36 remaining in the contest to propel the Chiefs to a 23-20 victory at Arizona. Tynes accumulated 11 points in the game on field goals of 45, 40 and 19 yards and two extra points. The late-game heroics marked the second game-winning kick of Tynesí career. He also booted the deciding 38-yard field goal with 22 seconds left in a 31-30 victory vs. Oakland (12/25/04). He now ranks fourth in Kansas City history with 52 career field goals.

On the season, the Troy State product has converted eight of nine field goals and eight PATs, ranking fourth among AFC kickers with 32 points. He also has one punt for 33 yards on the season. Tynes originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with Kansas City in 2001 and is now in his third season with the Chiefs after enjoying a two-year stint in the CFL with the Ottawa Renegades (2002-03).

Nice interview with Hermie on the Chiefs' web site. "Put out the Fire!"

I really liked hearing him talk about Brodie as the QBOTF. And, he only said "Last time I checked" once the last time I checked.

He's taking Pittsburgh seriously, that's for certain.

Way to go Huard and Tynes.

Drop by NFL.com and vote for Huard in their latest poll. Leinart is running away with it despite losing the game and being outplayed by Huard.

If he keeps this up, we stand to get some real value for Huard when the time comes. Maybe a tackle and a pick?

Huard is getting his ass kicked in the FedEx air player of the week voting.

Probably because everyone outside of KC and Arizona is looking at the candidates and asking, "WHO?"

I noticed that. Does anyone have the link to someplace on the NFL's site that they publish this stuff? I'm just curious who the NFC players are.

Wow. Leinart gives away the game against us and he's still leading that poll? :rolleyes: Apparently the people voting didn't see him throw the game losing interception, or take the 10 yard sack rather than throwing the ball away and stopping the clock. I guess they've only heard the hype machine from Espn rather than actually seeing the real deal.

You seem like a nice person, Mr. jjjayb. Many Planeteers could learn from your marvelously creative use of smiles and the space bar.

But, Leinart didn't "give away" anything. We won that game fair and square.

The one or two summaries of the game I saw on ESPN News just talked about Leinart having two TDs and having a good game. They didn't even mention his INT that helped us take the lead.

I saw that too, Mr. beer bacon. The final score was treated as an aside. It's too bad we don't have a Paris Hilton infected golden child or some semi-evolved Archie Manning splooge on our team.

I even heard them say how good he played in the "near victory over the Chiefs". :rolleyes:

Nice job, Damon Huard and Lawrence Tynes. After last season, I expected Tynes would be solid again this year. But Damon Huard has really played much better than I had hoped for.

Just stopped to think about this. Who in their right mind would have thought that Huard would ever be voted AFC Player of the Week after Trent went down?

This is truly amazing.
