It has been a pretty interesting week around Arrowhead Addict. We’re tracking the Shaun Rogers news and we also reported that the Chiefs hired Jim Zorn as their QB coach. We’ve had a few great features from our staff members and now it is Draft Thursday. Each Thursday we turn our attention to getting you ready for the draft in April. Merlin and Adam will covering some interesting topics in their features today and I’ll have a Q&A with Larry McDaniel from With The First Pick on the Chiefs’ draft needs.
Rogers also is interested in visiting his hometown Houston Texans. He told Houston’s KILT-FM, via SportsRadioInterviews.com, “It would be most definitely a fairy-tale situation, but again, you just look forward to exploring all opportunities, and hopefully, whoever reaches out to me and wherever I go it will most definitely be a positive experience.”
Rybak wrote that he was glad players had pledged not to strike and that he wished the league would make a similar pledge not to do a lockout. Other mayors have said the same thing.
“It is clear that the vast popularity and financial success of football means that a lockout cannot be in the interest of anybody involved, particularly the fans, workers or businesses who support the game,” wrote Kansas City Mayor Mark Funkhouser to Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt.
Charlie Weis, Florida (offense): Though not cut out to be a college head coach, Weis showed off his behind-the-scenes offensive acumen yet again with the Kansas City Chiefs last season, producing the NFL’s ninth-ranked attack. Now he’ll take on the daunting task of transforming the Gators from a spread-option team to a pro-style system. He’ll almost certainly help quarterback John Brantley improve (and develop incoming freshmen Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett), but the rest of Florida’s returning personnel doesn’t seem to suit Weis’ preferred style.

Originally from Ohio, Patrick is a Chiefs fan first and a Browns fan second (I know!). He also pulls for the Buckeyes, Indians and Cavs. Guinness is thinking of naming him the most miserable sports fan of all time. @rpatrickallen
