Not a lot out there today, Addicts! Ah well…at least it’s Friday!
Here is your Morning Fix.
For example, take the wide receiver position highlighted by veteran Chris Chambers (left). The new Arrowhead regime knew that was a weak spot on the club’s roster after the ‘08 season. A number of wide receivers were signed: Terrance Copper, Bobby Engram, C.J. Jones and Rodney Wright. By the end of the ‘09 regular season, only Copper remained and he was largely a special teams performer.
So from the start of camp, wide receivers paraded through the roster – Amani Toomer, Ashley Lelie, Bobby Wade, Lance Long and Chambers, who was the only one that made a real impact on the offense.
On one sideline we’ve got our current defensive coordinator, Romeo Crennel, serving as head coach of the East team. On the other sideline stands the man with the best winning percentage of any head coach in franchise history – former Chiefs head man Marty Schottenheimer.
The 85th Annual East-West Shrine Game kicks off on Saturday and a week of collegiate all-star action follows. Many of tomorrow’s NFL stars will battle in Orlando, FL against one another, while the 2010 Under Armour Senior Bowl will offer a second glimpse at top college talent just seven days later. NFL scouts have been (and will be) there to see it all.
Shipley would be the perfect fit at slot WR for the Chiefs. With Bowe and Chambers stretching the field, Shipley would be able to cause many matchup problems for opposing defenses.
As of right now, Shipley is projected as a late 2nd or early 3rd round pick. This puts the Chiefs in a perfect scenario, allowing them to first address their problems at lef tackle, middle linebacker, and safety. If Shipley plays like he did at Texas, the Chiefs would move one step closer to becoming the Patriots of the Midwest.
Some folks are wondering if Kansas City Chiefs former defensive coordinator and current assistant defensive coach Clancy Pendergast could wind up with the Buffalo Bills now that Chan Gailey is there. Let me explain a little.
At his introductory press conference in Buffalo, Gailey said he’s more open to the idea of running a 3-4 these days because he knows what a pain it is to formulate an offensive game plan against that type of defense. Then, it was reported that the Bills had requested permission to interview Mike Nolan before bolted the Broncos for the Dolphins.
