The Morning Fix: Chiefs News From Around The Web


We already know that they are targeting a No. 1 receiver in the offseason and they have a slew of early draft picks thanks to the Brandon Marshall and Vontae Davis trades, so someone connected the dots enough for Cole to get asked during a radio interview about the potential of a deal. There were some reports that Cole said the two sides are talking, something he clarified via tweet. Cole said he had no information about talks as yet between the two sides, but called Bowe a “logical target” for Miami.

Whether in the next few weeks or come the offseason, there figures to be a fair amount of talk about Bowe and the Dolphins.

 

This season has been no laughing matter for the 1-5 Kansas City Chiefs or their fans.

But lifelong Kansas City fan Dane Callstrom turned his frustrations after Sunday’s 38-10 loss to the Buccaneers into wit and sarcasm, writing this tune in about an hour. It’s called “I Will Follow You Cause I am Clark” and musically parodies Death Cab for Cutie’s “I Will Follow You Into the Dark.”

Callstrom, 23, voices his disappointment and dismay over the Chiefs’ offense, general manager Scott Pioli, quarterbacks Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn and coach Romeo Crennel.

Among the lyrics:

“Dear old Scott, some day we really fought … and our offense almost got … a touchdown, one time. … If Cassel or Quinn are in, please don’t even try to win. … If we’re down 30 points, tell them keep on runnin’”

 

A glimmer of hope. Linebacker Justin Houston has been the sole bright spot in the Chiefs’ otherwise completely disappointing season. The second-year player has broken out to the tune of 21 tackles, six sacks, an interception and a safety. In the evaluation period prior to the 2011 NFL Draft, I rated Houston as the second-best outside linebacker (behind the Denver Broncos’ Von Miller) and the No. 31 overall prospect in that class. Concerns about Houston’s character likely helped drop him into the third round on draft day. Not much has gone right for the Chiefs’ defense, but Houston gives fans something to smile about.
