The Morning Fix: Chiefs News and Headlines 2/20/2014

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.

I’m going to start you off with some good news today. For those of you getting nervous about the Chiefs salary cap situation, ESPN’s Adam Schefter spread some good news this morning via his Twitter account.


As the NFL Combine is set to start this weekend, many in Chiefs Kingdom are looking forward to seeing the prospects the team will be looking at in May’s draft. Terez Paylor at the Kansas City Star has a great post up looking forward to the Combine, and what draft related post would be complete without a quote from draft-nik Mike Mayock?

“From my perspective, this is the deepest and best draft class I’ve seen in probably 10 years, and that’s been reinforced by most of the general managers and scouts I’ve talked to throughout the league,” Mayock said in a Tuesday teleconference.

Finally today, Adam Teicher at ESPN opens an old wound in Chiefs Kingdom and revisits the debate of who was better Brandon Flowers or Brandon Carr?

You think the Chiefs might be having some regret over choosing Brandon Flowers instead of Carr at that juncture? The Chiefs, after drafting both players in 2008, came to the point where they had to choose between the two, and early in the 2011 season they signed Flowers to a five-year contract extension worth $48.75 million.

That’s it for today, Addicts. Enjoy your Thursday and GO CHIEFS!

    Carr is not playing well with many of the fans in Texas. Lots of money for occasional production. If anyone still believes Dorsey over paid Bowe, then, check out what many think about the money Jones ladled out to Carr. Had Pioli and Hunt given the same to Carr to stay in KC, what would those same fans, who demanded such, think about how Carr would be affecting the cap of the Chiefs this season?

      We need not to over pay anybody anymore. We need to continually have younger players coming up the pipeline for players that are going to get too expensive. We need to redo some contracts asap.

        Totally agree. With that in mind I think O-line, CB, OLB, and WR will be main targets. Of course we’ll also need a safety or two. Hopefully we get enough comp picks to get what we need.

    Another Pioli screw up. Carr might well have still been a Chief if Pioli had tried to make him a reasonable offer before his contract was up. After his last year here where for the most part his stats were better than Flowers, is it any wonder that he wanted a big pay day?
