The Morning Fix: Chiefs News and Headlines 2/3/2014


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.

Well, the Super Bowl is over, the Denver Broncos fell short and the off season is officially under way for the entire NFL. As the league can finally look forward to next season, Adam Teicher thinks that perhaps the Chiefs may open their season at home against the Denver Broncos.

How about the Chiefs and Denver Broncos for opening weekend at Arrowhead Stadium? By losing the Super Bowl to the Seattle Seahawks, the Broncos are available for a road game to start the season. The Broncos also play in Seattle next season, and a Super Bowl rematch could be what the NFL has in mind for the season-opening Thursday night game.

One of the biggest pieces of Chiefs related news over the weekend was the fact that former Chief Will Shields was snubbed from being voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Randy Covitz has a story up breaking down the case for Shields.

Will Shields will get into the Hall of Fame. Likely next year. Definitely in the next few years.

We are sworn not to reveal what goes on during the nine-hour-plus meeting, but trust me, Shields made progress in the room. It just takes time.

Finally today, Chiefs Insider Reid Ferrin talks about the record-breaking season Andy Reid had in his first year with the Chiefs.

In his first year wearing Chiefs Red, head coach Andy Reid led his team to an 11-5 record and the playoffs. The club completed the greatest single-season turnaround in franchise history, after finishing 2-14 the previous season. Kansas City recorded its highest win total since the 2003 season (13-3). This season marked Reid’s 10th postseason appearance in 15 seasons as an NFL head coach. Reid is one of six-active NFL head coaches from the 2013 season with over 100 victories. He has 151-overall wins and is one of three-active coaches with 10 or more postseason victories.

Don’t forget, Addicts, today is the first day that teams can waive players so there could potentially be some Chiefs news rolling down the pike. When it happens, we’ll let you know.

Enjoy your Monday, and GO CHIEFS!
