The Morning Fix: Chiefs News 2/12


Kansas City was particularly thin at wide receiver last year, and with the prospect of losing wide receiver Dwayne Bowe to free agency, new general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid are searching for players who could compete for roster spots next season.

Gilyard would fit that mold. He’s a former fourth-round draft pick out of Cincinnati who spent last season with the New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles, so Reid has some familiarity with him.

The Kansas City Chiefs management needs to make one more significant move toward improving the future for the local NFL team.

We need a powerful offense that can move the ball down the field and bring excitement back to the game in Kansas City.

How about bringing Tim Tebow to Kansas City?

Because the New York Jets gave him little chance to show what he can do, let’s see whether he can do for Kansas City what he did for the Broncos.

I’m betting Tim can do it if only given a chance.

KC Star Letters To The Editor

“Bobby was a loyal, hardworking member of the Kansas City Chiefs franchise and served as the team’s equipment manager for more than two decades. Bobby was with the franchise in the beginning, starting with the Dallas Texans in 1960, before making the move to Kansas City in 1963. Both my brother, Lamar Jr., and I had the pleasure of working directly for Bobby during our high school years as ball boys on his staff for Chiefs Training Camp at William Jewell College. He made many contributions to the organization over his tenure and his efforts will never be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family at this time.”

1. Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama. Why not a cornerback with the top overall choice? The Chiefs need one to pair with Brandon Flowers, and Milliner is the best one available.

2. Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah. Fans might be weary of the Chiefs drafting at this position, but Kansas City will need some help here, particularly if Glenn Dorsey departs as a free agent.

    Good morning, Patrick. I know free agency is still roughly 3 weeks away, but, have you considered posting a thread about possible free agents from other NFL teams who might fit with the Chiefs?
    If you do, I would like to mention Delanie Walker, the TE of the Niners. He has been dubbed “Swiss Army Knife” due to his versatility on the field. Fine speed to get open and has excellent hands. He caught three passes from CK in the SB and laid out Ed Reed on an exceptional lead block on the Frank Gore TD run. His salary will jump to over a mill this season if he remains with the Niners. The Chiefs had a chance to take this Central Missouri State talent in ’06, but, they left him for the Niners to take in the 6th round. He is only six feet tall, but, has been used by the Niners as a FB, TE, special teams player and even LB. With Walker, it will come down to out bidding the Niners.

      He’d be a great addition because of his versatility. I hope KC sticks with Boss, who I think, if healthy (that’s a standard “if” for all players) can be big asset, especially with the type of offense Reid likes to run. I’m also probably one of the few that would like to give Hillis one more year.

    Tebow a chief please take that off the web page it makes my stomach hurt just the thought of that

  • john

    I’ve been a Chief fan since before they won their only Super Bowl. It’s in my DNA. It’s like love and religion, I can’t help it. OK, maybe that’s a bad analogy, I do a dandy job of avoiding both of those.
    That said, however, bringing Tebow to KC might be the ONLY thing that would make me, at very least, contemplate rooting for another team, as virtually impossible as that may be.

    I fail to see how those two sentence can be put together.

    • Larry Devore

      kc does have matt cassel. i’d say they’re about even.Tebow 1 playoff win, Cassel with chiefs 0 playoff wins.

  • TAZMOSIS

    If I hear Tebow and the Chiefs in the same sentence again, I’m gonna’ gag. Hell, why don’t we just go sign Bret Faver. Or maybe give Jajerkus Rustler a shot. He said today he would play for nothing. Yeah, and why not? He’s already skinned the late Al Davis out of 40 million. At least the happy dog murderer(I know, he’s paid his debt to the SPCA) has re-upped with the Eggles. So he’s out…..we hope. There must be someone we could look at. Hmm, let’s see….I got it! Tyler Falco! And, I hear that Dan Marinaro may need some extra cash to pay for that little screw-up with, who was it, his nanny? How ’bout any of the X-’Skins players that can’t correctly spell their last names?
