The Morning Fix: Red Friday Edition


It’s Red Friday Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Baltimore Ravens tonight. The Ravens are the team that ended the Chiefs’ season in 2010 so hopefully the good guys will be able to get a little revenge.

A bunch of readers have been telling me they are going to be sporting their Arrowhead Addict t-shirts for Red Friday. Check out Michael above putting us all to shame with those Chiefs pants. I have to get myself pair of those.

If you need some help getting pumped up for tonight’s game, make sure to check out AA’s Chiefs highlight video…Star Wards style.

Later on, we’ll go “Inside The Enemy Camp” with Ebony Bird, FanSided’s Baltimore Reavens blog and tonight we’ll have out live game open threat.

Until then, here is your Morning Fix. (After the jump)

“I’m seeing what appears to be a continuation of Matt’s evolution as a leader,” said Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli, the former Patriots GM who traded for Cassel upon his 2009 arrival.

“He worked as hard, if not harder, than anybody. Matt has an even greater comfort with this team and in taking control.”

2 GAITHER’S HEALTH:

Offensive lineman Jared Gaither sat out the final two practice days this week because of an undisclosed injury. He didn’t play in last week’s preseason game, and it’s unclear whether he’ll play tonight.

The Kansas City Chiefs have made their way back to Kansas City and are practicing at the Arrowhead facilities for the rest of training camp. Except apparently one player wasn’t practicing: WR Jon Baldwin.

According to multiple FanShots and this link over at SBN KC, Baldwin was not at practice yesterday and the reason why is currently not known

Kansas City recently signed Gaither, the former Baltimore left tackle who is coming off a back injury that kept him out all of last year, and he has been practicing behind Albert at left tackle. Yet, Gaither could move into the first team at some point. Or Gaither could move to right tackle and Albert could stay put. The team hasn’t decided what to do yet. But it’s clear they signed Gaither with hopes of him starting.

I had a great conversation with Carl Dukes, Dave Tepper and Julie Takahashion on 97.5′s The Drive on ESPN Radio in Houston.

Some of the topics we covered were the newly revamped Chiefs offense, Todd Haley’s perception in Kansas City and the team’s 2011 chances.
