Chiefs News And Rumors 8/22

Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning. Here at Arrowhead Addict, we understand that for a Chiefs fan, coffee is simply not enough.

Here’s all that’s happening around Chiefs Kingdom this morning.

Welcome to The Morning Fix.

Buckle up folks. There’s a ton to get to today.

Let’s start with the Chiefs’ defense. Last night, we featured an article about Eric Berry and his thoughts on the Chiefs’ aggressive defense. Defensive coordinator Bob Sutton also recently discussed the defense, per Reid Ferrin of

“One of the things that’s so important that you’re trying to figure out is how are you going to play collectively as a unit,” Sutton said. Eleven parts coming together as one. For example, the very first play of the San Francisco game, we’ve done a really good job, we’ve got them bottled up on the run and then all of the sudden (Frank) Gore breaks out the back end and 52 yards later, down there in the scoring zone; that’s not the way you drew it up to start or wanted it to start, and it wasn’t like you got gassed, the guy made a great football play. The thing that I was happy with defensively was they didn’t lose their focus, didn’t lose their concentration. We ended up getting three-and-out and held them to a field goal.”

Speaking of Sutton, the Chiefs’ defensive coordinator also opened up on illegal hits, basically telling players to shut up and play, according to Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY Sports:
“You can complain all you want, (but) you better adjust,” the Kansas City Chiefs’ defensive coordinator said on Wednesday, “because that’s how the game’s getting called.”
Frankly, that’s the type of defensive coordinator that the Chiefs need heading into this new era of football. Sutton has an aggressive scheme and he’s obviously a no nonsenses coach. I, for one, like what he’s doing for Kansas City.
Finally, let’s talk Dwayne Bowe, who is apparently pretty happy with the way things are going right now, per the Associated Press via
 “I’m just blessed to be alive, every day just coming out and seeing more fans appreciating me, screaming my name,” Bowe told The Associated Press during a recent interview. “I’m just trying to let loose and be joyful. There’s a time to have fun and a time to be serious, and I know that. But I’m just trying to be myself.”

Kansas City’s star wideout is obviously in a good place. Hopefully it will translate onto the field during the regular season.
