Morning, Addicts and Happy Super Bowl Sunday. We’ll get you some Chiefs news and then AA is going to become Super Bowl Central for the day. There won’t be much our there other than SB news today so we’ll get through the day with plenty of coverage in that arena. Then the free agency blitz begins.
I’m looking forward to the month leading up to free agency because the re-signings will heat up and we’ll soon start to get an idea of who is going to hit he market and who isn’t. Let’s hope two guys that won’t hit free agency are Dwayne Bowe and Brandon Carr.
And let’s hope this time next year, AA will be Chiefs Super Bowl Central.
Until then, here is your Morning Fix!
Cassel will soon get to know Daboll, 36, even better. The Chiefs were on the verge of hiring Daboll as their new offensive coordinator. An announcement should come this week, perhaps as soon as today.“I’m excited,” Cassel said. “I think it will be a good fit for us. He’s very detailed. He was very meticulous about his work and he expected a lot out of his players. I was always impressed with him as a coach.”
“The Kansas City years were more important (for the Hall of Fame) than the New Orleans years, even though I went to seven Pro Bowls in New Orleans,” Roaf said by phone while en route to Indianapolis, where he will be introduced with the rest of the Class of 2012 before tonight’s Super Bowl.“I went to Kansas City and played with that great offensive line … I needed Kansas City more than Kansas City needed me, and I’m thankful to (them) for giving me a chance to play.”
Brian Daboll, recently replaced by the Dolphins, is the Chiefs’ new offensive coordinator. To get here, to the Super Bowl, the Chiefs are trusting a man whose best offense in three years as a coordinator ranked 22nd.I’ll pause so you can contain your excitement.
Turns out the hire Chiefs fans have waited on for a month spent seven seasons with the Patriots. I’ll pause again so you can contain your surprise.
Honest question: Would you be more excited for Daboll or Josh McDaniels?
Daboll emerged as an early candidate. He continues the New England Way in Kansas City. He was in New England with Kansas City general manger Scott Pioli and Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel during the last decade.There were reports last month that the Chiefs were looking for a dynamic offensive coordinator and Schefter reported that former Green Bay head coach Mike Sherman, who ended up as the Dolphins’ offensive coordinator, was on the Chiefs’ radar. While Daboll is considered a promising young coach, it would be inaccurate to describe his previous experience as an NFL offensive coordinator as dynamic.
