That’s a lot of information. There are close to 100 potential draft choices working out in Mobile this week in preparation for Saturday’s 61st Senior Bowl. For every one of those players, there are four or five NFL coaches, scouts and front-office types there to watch and chart every move. The Chiefs have a pretty full contingent there, including new offensive coordinator Charlie Weis.
First off, the offense looks like it could very well carry the South team this weekend. That could lead to a very intriguing clash with the way the North defense has looked over the course of the week.
It’s also apparent that the South is going to get creative on Saturday. While we’ve seen primarily traditional offensive sets out of the North squad, the South has showed sets with multiple tailbacks and Wildcat snaps to play-makers without a “QB” preceding their names. They’ve also tried double passes and reverse plays.
Terry, 34, was arrested in Clarksville after a traffic stop Wednesday morning.
Police said he was dealing cocaine. Terry is charged with possession of cocaine, operating a vehicle while intoxicated, resisting law enforcement, possession of a handgun without a permit and driving without a license.
“The players are different. We have to build a team,” Crennel said. “If you work for something, you appreciate it more when you acquire it, but being able to build with guys you’ve worked with before, that you’ve built a team with before, I think that it’d be easier to get everybody on the same page that way.”
Crennel spent the morning back-slapping with his coaching cronies, back in “the old fraternity.” He didn’t hesitate to say that he’s happy and excited to be where he is.
The Chiefs can’t compete in an uncapped league with no revenue sharing. Potentially, it’s a nightmare for all of us. Things could get out of control.
We don’t know for certain that athletes and owners will get out of control with no salary cap and no revenue sharing, but to think it won’t happen would be idealistic. We’ve all seen what has happened to baseball. It could happen again.
The last thing anyone wants to see is the Chiefs on the verge of greatness, only to be denied by off the field issues. It would be beyond heartbreaking to see the Cowboys, Redskins, or Patriots snatch up championships from here to eternity as the Yankees do in baseball. Parity has to survive in the NFL, because we all want to see the champions winning the Lombardi Trophy, not money.
