The Morning Fix: Chiefs News and Headlines 2/10/2014

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.

Sorry I’m late, guys. I’m on vacation! Anyways, on to the news!

While things are pretty slow in regards to Chiefs news today, there is still some pretty cool stuff to look at out there. Chiefs Insider Reid Ferrin at the Mothership has posted the “Top 10 Plays by a WR/TE” showing the best plays in chronological order. Definitely worth a look as we think back to the 2013 season.

We recently looked at the record-setting first year by Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith. The team’s QB put up big numbers, thanks to his many targets, including the Chiefs WRs and TEs, who combined for 226 receptions for 2,596 yards and 16 TDs in 2013.

As the Chiefs look forward to the season to come, quarterback Alex Smith is excited about the prospect of playing in year two of the Andy Reid offense. Garrett Johnston from the Kansas City Star wrote up this piece from the golf Pro-Am in Pebble Beach, California.

“I’m very excited, if you look at our last eight or nine games offensively, we really did some good things and took off a little bit there,” Smith said. “And we got some momentum heading into the offseason. Obviously the playoff game was tough to take, but there are some positive things, too.”

Finally today, Adam Teicher at ESPN continues his “Rookie Reports” today breaking down running back Knile Davis.
2013 season: Davis began the season as a fumble-prone player who couldn’t be trusted to run the play that was called or catch the ball when it was kicked to him. His season ended with a broken leg in the playoff loss to theIndianapolis Colts, but in between Davis transformed into a player who was hardly recognizable. The Chiefs understandably didn’t trust him much early in the season but became more comfortable with him as the year went on, and he was at times effective in relief of Jamaal Charles. Though he fumbled occasionally during the season, Davis was much better securing the ball later in the season, often carrying it with two arms in what appeared to be an exaggerated pose.
That’s it for today, Addicts. Please enjoy your Monday, have a good week and just think, there’s only 28 more Sundays until football. GO CHIEFS!

    Tomorrow AM, perhaps, a story on should KC consider picking up Gabe Carimi, the 29th pick in the 2011 draft, who, never quite made it with, either, the Bears or the Bucs. The Bucs have just cut him to save the well over $1M in guaranteed money. At least a backup at RT? He blocked for Wilson at Wisconsin.

    The RB position scares me. Maybe more than any other spot on the team when it comes to depth, as we saw what happened in the second half of the WC game! We are all very aware of the defensive collapse, some individuals insist the offense was responsible for scoring more…
    That’s irrelevent at this point… What is however is the fact that despite the untimely injurie’s KC did not have the personell to effectively run the ball in the second half…
    Spoiled by JC, the memories of Marcus Allen, & Priest Holmes, Knile Davis as a RB has no vision! On ST or in the open field he is a monster. But put him in short yardage, on the goal-line, or stack-the-box, & he hits the pile, bounces off, will try to redirect & most often get dropped!!!
    The film doesn’t lie… Is it correctable? Maybe… It’s obvious Davis is working hard to control the fumbling issue. But for those who have watched Allen, or Holmes you know exactly what I speak of. INSTINCT!!!
    For a RB this is not something that can be taught. You can coach, wait for your block, hit the seam, or bounce it to the outside… But for some all they can see is the hole they are suppose to hit. For the sake of the team I hope our in-house “whisper-er” Reid can help him overcome this, as I see a need for Davis to be more involved as a RB if Reid is to continue using JC in the passing game to the extent he did this last season…
