The Morning Fix

What should be noted from looking at which guys are pressured the least, is that the bottom three have a combined record of 9-3. So teams that are keeping their quarterback pressure-free are winning. Of course, this isn’t always the case, with both Andy Dalton and Matt Cassel (as well as Mark Sanchez) fairing well in this regard. We’ll get to why that might be ever so shorty, but before we do, how about we look at which quarterbacks are letting the highest amount of pressure turn to sacks.

First, I don’t want to hear that the Chiefs should pocket their first round pick and wait for a quarterback like Kellen Moore. The Chiefs need to be aggressive about bringing a first round pick, even if that means trading up. Even if that means Cassel puts together a decent season in 2011. The quarterback position is way too important to gamble with. But, all hope is not lost if the Chiefs don’t “win” the Andrew Luck sweepstakes. While I’m not a draft guru, there are definitely some interesting names being thrown around in the top 10 or 20, most notably Matt Barkley, Landry Jones, and Nick Foles. So even if the Chiefs don’t “luck out,” they can still draft a franchise quarterback.

Curtis Painter will start at quarterback and Jeff Linkenbach will be at left tackle Sunday, Indianapolis Colts coach Jim Caldwell confirmed Friday.

The identity of the team’s right tackle and the rotation at defensive tackle were less clear.

Linkenbach will move from the right side to the left to replace starter Anthony Castonzo (ankle) for the Kansas City Chiefs’ visit to Lucas Oil Stadium. Like Castonzo, backup tackle Ben Ijalana (knee) went down during the loss at Tampa Bay on Monday night.

issouri MUFON State Director Debbie Ziegelmeyer contacted Bill Gill, who is the Chapter Team Leader of the EAA Flying Team that few out of the Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport on October 4. The group was practicing to audition for “night formation flying” for the Kansas City Chiefs. The planes were RV6s thru RV9s, which are kit aircraft with normal required red/green wing lights and white strobe. No flight plan was required to be submitted to the airport prior to take-off due to the size of the aircraft. The flight went as follows:
