The Morning Fix: Chiefs News From Around The Web


Ever the showman, Hunt believed in creating excitement for his sporting enterprises and these were just two of his ideas, neither of which he believed deserved any special credit. As a matter of fact, in a memo to NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle in July of 1966, Hunt wrote of the first AFL-NFL championship:

“I have kiddingly called it ‘The Super Bowl,’ a name that obviously can be improved upon.

Tom Brady drops back, looking for a receiver, and is standing in the pocket when Pollard, while playing for the Chiefs flies around the corner and rolls into his leg. With an ACL tear, Brady is out for the season.

Matt Cassel comes in for the rest of the year, and the Pats become the second team ever to record 11 wins and not make the playoffs. The Miami Dolphins win the AFC East, and an overtime loss to the New York Jets in November was one of the most brutal losses of the season.

Pioli and Cassel flee to Kansas City the next season.

Reggie McKenzie’s move to release Stanford Routt left plenty of room for rumor and speculation as to where the axe might fall next. Suddenly every player on the Raider roster with a bloated salary had to feel somewhat unsafe.

One man that can rest easy is Pro-Bowl defensive lineman Richard Seymour. As ProFootballTalk.com points out Seymour’s serious salary of $15-million became fully guaranteed a couple of days ago. Unless McKenzie is out to prove some stubborn point he’s saddled with Seymour for at least another season.

Last year Al Davis gave Seymour a two-year deal worth $30-million. With the way the deal was structured about half of that contract was guaranteed. So McKenzie had little to no choice but to keep Seymour around.
