The Kansas City Chiefs wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and also were quick to share what they are most thankful for not just today, but every day.
Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton:
"I'm thankful for my family and my health; those are things, sometimes you get busy and you don't realize how fortunate you are."
Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson
"My family and my health. Those are the biggest things; football is just my job, it's what I do, but they are most important to me. I'm most thankful for having them and having a wife that understands and supports me. The time spent away from them makes it that much more special for me, when I get the chance to spend time with them, like today."
"I’m thankful for a lot of things and being a part of this team is certainly one of them.”
"I'm thankful for God, my family and this team and my friends. I can't really say one thing; it's a whole bunch of things."
"I have so much to be thankful for. I'm thankful for God Himself. I'm thankful for having the family that I have and I'm thankful for my second family, the Chiefs family. I'm thankful for living my dream. I'm thankful for everything I have and for being alive. I could go on and on."
"My family. There's nothing more important than family."
"I'm most thankful for my family. I'm expecting another daughter, in seven days or less, so I'm thankful for her and my entire family. Our tradition is just family. I'm family-oriented. My mom, my oldest daughter, my father, so, it's all fun, family and laughter."
"I'm thankful to be on a winning team this year; it's been a long time coming. I'm thankful for my kids."
"I'm thankful for my family, great friends and being on this great team."
"My family, mom, dad, sisters, brothers, being around them and being able to play in the same city they're in."
"I'm thankful for life, family, for opportunity and just to be in the position that I am. I'm thankful for God and every opportunity I've been given."
“I’m thankful for my family and the opportunity to live a good life. I'm thankful for the life that God granted me.”
"I'm thankful for my kids, my mom, my brothers and sisters; I'm thankful for God allowing me to make a living by doing something that I love, since I was nine-years old and I never take that for granted."
"My family and friends and the opportunity to play this great game."
"My life, first; I'm still living. I'm thankful for my job and my family."
"I'm thankful for my family and for the opportunity to play this game that I love."
"I'm thankful for being here, another opportunity and another day. So many people don't make it to see (age) 24; I'm 24. A lot of people aren't able to do the things I am able to do, just being around good people. I'm thankful for family and just to be able to be here."
"I'm thankful for my son; he just turned three-years old on Tuesday, so, I got a chance to go out and celebrate his birthday with him. I'm so thankful to have him in my life; he's definitely made me a better person, a better individual."
"I'm most thankful for my relationship with Jesus, Him saving me and blessing me with a wife, who loves Him and loves me to death. I'm thankful for the opportunity to play a game for a living; the list goes on and on with me. I'm thankful for life and the ability to breathe."
"Just being alive; you can never take that for granted, being able to wake up every day and come here to this job that I have and do the things I do."
"I'm thankful we live in a country, where you can worship Jesus Christ, obviously, that's a big thing. We live in America; obviously, we're free to do a lot of things that, in the rest of the world, you can't do. I'm thankful for my wife, my parents and my kids, loved ones that we get to share time with and I'm really thankful to be a part of Kansas City and the Kansas City Chiefs and I'm thankful for this good food that we're about to eat."
"I'm most thankful for a God, who sent His Son to die on the cross for us; that's a pretty awesome deal. Secondly, I'm most thankful for my family, my two beautiful daughters, my wonderful wife and thirdly, I'm thankful for Arrowhead and our crazy fans; there's no stadium I'd rather play in, in the NFL, than that stadium."
"I'm most thankful for my family, my mother raising me up well and all the coaches that helped me get here, along the way."
