Last year, 13 veteran players who were either signed or re-signed in 2010 took the field for the Chiefs first summer practice in St. Joseph. Of those 13, seven went on to start games for the Chiefs in 2010 – Jackie Bates, Chris Chambers, Terrance Cooper, Thomas Jones, Ryan Lilja, Shaun Smith and Casey Wiegmann
Commissioner Roger Goodell, during a call with Kansas City Chiefs fans on Thursday, reiterated the league’s desire to resume negotiations with the players.
“Unfortunately, I don’t think we’re making much progress in negotiations because they really aren’t happening,” Goodell said on the call. “Right now, it’s in a litigation phase and the union is pursuing that while we are defending that. Unfortunately, there are not enough negotiations, which ultimately it’s going to have to come back to and is where this will get resolved and end in a new collective bargaining agreement.”
Do you recall which of the Broncos’ twelve losses was the most embarrassing? OK, Got it? How about the most impressive of the four wins? Pretty easy as well, right? How did the opposing offenses attack the Broncos’ defense as each of those games played out? The most glaring difference between getting pounded by the Raiders at Invesco and pounding the Chiefs at Invesco was…you guessed it, an early lead, which dictated our rivals either running (winning) or throwing (losing) against us for the rest of the game. With studs off the edge and a ballhawking secondary, Fox now just needs to figure out how to force other teams to throw it—or might we say, he needs to figure out who to force other teams to throw it. We don’t currently have the luxury of a Peyton Manning or an Aaron Rodgers to pile up points early in games. Can Tim Tebow deliver?
