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 (Afternoon) Fix.
–The documentary on former Chiefs’ great, Derrick Thomas, aired last night on A Football Life. Some of the current Chiefs took some time yesterday to talk about the late great linebacker, per Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com:
“Being in this league and since I’ve been a part of this organization, I’ve heard so many great things about Derrick Thomas,” Chiefs Pro Bowl RB Jamaal Charles said. “He brought a lot here to this team, when he was playing for the Chiefs. He’s a Hall of Famer and I’m looking forward to seeing (tonight’s) documentary.”
Rising star linebacker Justin Houston also talked about the Chiefs’ great:
The “D.T.” influence still impacts the Chiefs linebackers, including Pro Bowl LB Justin Houston, who needed one word to describe what comes to his mind when he hears the name Derrick Thomas.
“Sacks,” Houston said. “That’s the first thing I think about, with his on-field performance. He was a great athlete, a great player. I still watch film of him and use it as motivation to try to get close to where he was.”
–Sam Mellinger of The Kansas City Star put together a good piece, taking notes after re-watching the Chiefs vs. Eagles game. Check it out.
