The Morning Fix: Chiefs News 2/14


Offseason crystal ball

The Chiefs will draft at least one quarterback, but not with the No. 1 overall pick. They’ll possibly bring another in to compete with Cassel and the rookie. There won’t be a quick-fix under center. Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel might be the guy at No. 1, especially if Albert is allowed to walk. There are six 2012 Pro Bowlers on the roster, so there’s talent in K.C. But you can’t get out the blocks in today’s NFL without a legit quarterback. That’s the No. 1 job for Dorsey and Reid.

Chiefs general manager John Dorsey was asked about the possibility of taking a quarterback with the top pick while appearing on “NFL AM” on Wednesday.

“You may think I’m dodging the answer, but we truly aren’t going to get to the quarterbacks in our draft meeting, look at them entirely until Friday and Saturday of this week, so I can’t really give you a concrete answer on that,” Dorsey said.

“I did a good job and everything, and he was like, ‘OK, thanks, man,’” says Kubin, then playing his trade at Bleeding Heart Tattoo in Lee’s Summit, Mo.

“Then he came in the shop later and said, ‘My next tattoo, I want this big skull on the back of my head, with, like, a headdress on it and Kansas City Chiefs colors and a Kansas City Chiefs logo in the center. And I want it so that when I’m at a Chiefs game, in the stands, if I’m standing in front of a Raiders fan, I want him to be intimidated.’”

“I think trading out is still the best option,’’ Kiper said today. “There’s no quarterback to remotely consider if you’re Kansas City. I would say if (the Chiefs) can get out of there, that’s the best option if they can, and there’s no guarantee they will be able to.’’

Kiper whittled his list to three of players he considers worthy of consideration by the Chiefs with that first pick: Texas A&M offensive tackle Luke Joeckel, Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones and Utah defensive lineman Star Lotulelei.

    I know I’m going to change my mind every week about the best course for the Chiefs, but that pretty much sums up their situation. I agree with keeping Cassel on the team and drafting TWO QB’s. The second one I’d like to see them get, probably in the 6th-7th round is Chase Retig out of Boston College. He played on a lousy team with a lousy coaching staff and still OK. My niece is a freshman there this year so my brother made me watch some of their games and he’s pretty good. Most importantly, he got better every year. He’s big, got a strong arm and seems to read defenses “OK”.

    Imagine a front three d.poe t. jackson and Star Lotulelei.Whew,
    no one would be able to run on us!

      I cant imagine Star on the team cus that wud mean Geno Smith aint on the team. Without Geno on the team, Chiefs wud still average 3 or 4 FGs and 2 turnovas a game, meaning Star better b able to score some TDS! Teams would still b able to run on us becus of all the 3 and outs on offense and being waaaay behind in the 4th QT. That wud wear the d down and open up the run game.
