The Morning Fix: Chiefs News From Around The Web


Little Zoey Belcher — whose NFL-player dad killed her mom, then himself — may find a permanent home in Texas, legal experts say.

While Missouri is the 4-month-old’s home state, her maternal grandparents have a strong claim to keep her in Texas, said lawyer Harriet Newman Cohen. “Every day the child remains in Texas, it’s more of her new status quo,” said Cohen, whose has represented Gov. Cuomo and Howard Stern’s ex-wife, Alison.

Two of the leading candidates for the Chiefs general manager’s job will be involved in that game. And whichever candidate’s team loses could be available to talk with chairman Clark Hunt about the vacancy.

John Dorsey is the Packers’ director of football operations and has been part of Green Bay’s front office for 21 of the last 22 years.

Reid says he’s evaluating the team and the assistant coaches. When it’s all said and done, Reid says he wants to create the  environment at Arrowhead Stadium that he was used to seeing as the visiting coach.

“It’s tough. I can’t wait to invite other teams to come in and be challenged by the Chiefs’ kingdom,” says Reid. “It’s a great environment.”

The next major order of business for Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt is to name a general manager, who will take over for the departed Scott Pioli.

“That might not happen this year. It might not; it’s all new. If it’s the guys here, they’ve gotta learn a new system. If it’s outside and you bring a young guy in, they’ve gotta learn a new system. Free agency – you never know what it’s going to bring. So that position might not just grow right there and be an exact deal right now. So what you do is you get in, you dig in, you teach. You build it up– let’s see what we can get.”

Winston talked with Danny Parkins and Carrington Harrison on 610 Sports this week and said he and some of the Chiefs fans “might have gotten off on the wrong foot.”

“You know, it is what it is,” Winston said. “It was a situation obviously where I felt I needed to speak up and say what I needed to say and that’s it. I’ve never been one to hold grudges in the past and I’m not going to in the future. Some people didn’t like what I had to say and some people really like what I had to say. It is what it is.”

    Eric Winston: “some people really like what I had to say.”

    I wouldn’t go as far as saying THAT, but whatever helps you sleep at night buddy.

    @ Winston. Don’t you ever….EVER apologize. You said what needed to be said and if I was in your shoes I would have said it too. Still need to learn to block though, maybe put on some weight (is it just me or does he look awfully trim to be an NFL tackle?)

    The only people with an issue with what you said were the douchemasters doing what you spoke up about. Everyone else either agreed with you or knew it had nothing to do with them.
