Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning, and especially in the middle of the afternoon when things are starting to drag. 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 today.
Welcome to The Fix.
It’s a Pro Bowl wrap up kind of morning here at AA. Pretty much everything Chiefs related on the web today is talking about last night’s all-star game and how the Chiefs players dominated. Kevin Patra from NFL’s Around the League had this to say:
Alex Smith, the final pick in Wednesday’s Pro Bowl Draft, led Team Rice on the final touchdown drive on a rain-soaked field. Then Jerry Rice and Riverboat Ron Rivera went for two and clinched a 22-21 win over Team Sanders in the first unconferenced Pro Bowl.
Heading over to the Kansas City Star there is a post up by Oskar Garcia from the Associated Press recapping the game.
Dallas running back DeMarco Murray caught a 20-yard touchdown pass [from Alex Smith] with 41 seconds left adn Carolina running back Mike Tolbert plunged into the end zone for a 2-point conversion to give [Team] Rice a 22-21 win over [Team] Sanders in the first schoolyard-style Pro Bowl on Sunday.
Finally today, moving away from Pro Bowl news, Adam Teicher at ESPN continues his analysis of the Chiefs positional groups by breaking down the running backs.
The Chiefs asked a lot of Charles last season and he consistently delivered. Charles led the Chiefs in rushing, receiving and touchdowns. It took a concussion that knocked him out of the playoff game in Indianapolis before Charles stopped being productive. Charles is still only 27 but has a lot of wear and tear on him. It would be wise for the Chiefs to plan for the day Charles slows down or has another long-term injury similar to the ACL tear that ruined his 2011 season.
Don’t forget, the AA Writers Mock Draft will begin at 12 Noon, Arrowhead time today. The first six picks will be revealed. Make sure you check back to see who your favorite AA writer drafted.
Until then, enjoy your Monday and GO CHIEFS!
