The Morning Fix: Chiefs News From Around The Web

Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer completed just 14 passes when the Raiders played the Chiefs in October, but three of them went for 29 yards or more. The Chiefs could limit the big-play damage Sunday by putting better pressure on Palmer, something they didn’t do last time. That game was only one of two this season when the Chiefs didn’t have a sack. The Raiders won’t have Stanford Routt to pick on this time, but that may not be a good thing because of the speed of the Oakland receivers.


Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher spent the evening partying in the Power & Light District before shooting and killing his girlfriend and himself on the morning of Dec. 1. While toxicology reports have not been released, Belcher was found by police sleeping in his Bentley hours before he went on his rampage.

Despite all of the programs the NFL and the individual clubs make available to their players, including a free taxi service that’s provided in every league city by the NFL Players Association, drinking and driving continues to be a problem in the NFL.


“We are excited to further the mission and reach of the 3rd and Goal Foundation by partnering with Art of the Olympians to deliver an once-in-a-lifetime prize to two lucky football fans,” said Quinn.  “Aside from helping create lifelong memories for the winners, we are most excited about creating awareness for Our Veterans in need.  All proceeds from this raffle will go to further the missions of these two organizations, which makes the experience even better.”

The drawing will be held on December 25, 2012 at a cost of $25 for one ticket, $50 for three tickets and $16.66 each when purchasing more than three tickets.  Tickets may be purchased at


“I try to get a positive out of everything,” the former Kansas City cornerback said when asked what he has learned from losing two teammates — Chiefs linebacker and murder/suicide victim Jovan Belcher being the first — in one week.

“I don’t try to question God in his ways and what He does. I just think that for us who are still alive and blessed to be on this Earth, God is telling you that you are blessed to have this day. He wants people to make the best of their days: Change a life, impact a life in the right way, carpe diem.

“It’s so true. You never know when your time is up and your name is called to see (God). This time on this Earth, take advantage of it. Try to do the right thing.”

    Being shut out by the RAIDERS who have won a whopping 3 wins, Losing numerous games by double digits, and watching teams like the browns run up the score board in excesss of 30pts convinces me we can NOT draft a mediocer QB like GENO SMITH. Instead we have to draft the best player available other wise we will be settling for mediocrity. A QB is not going to stop weak teams putting 30 on us (BUFFALO). A rookie QB is not going to enhance our offensive play calling. We are not a good team and being such we need to improve more than than just the QB position. DO NOT FORCE ANOTHER STUPID FIRST ROUND PICK.

      With QBs being about equal this year (all average) I think we should (if possible) trade our 1st pick for a lower 1st and a 3rd. Take best player in 1st available. Then trade one of our 3s and a 4 for another 2nd then take a QB and best player available. The rest of the picks take best player available. Or maybe some team would give us the world for our #1 pick like the Redskins did last year.
