The Morning Fix: Chiefs News and Headlines 2/21/2014

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.

There’s a lot going on today as the NFL Combine gets underway at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Right off the bat, Chiefs Reporter Rachel Santschi explains what the Wonderlic test is and how it’s applied to NFL quarterbacks. Make sure you check out the story to see where Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith scored.

The Wonderlic Contemporary Cognitive Ability Test is a standardized test that measures player’s aptitude for learning and problem solving. The test consists of 50 multiple choice questions to be answered in 12 minutes. The score is calculated on the number of correct answers in the time allowed. The test consists of English, reading, math and logic problems that increase in difficultly as the test progresses.

Moving over to the Kansas City Star Sam Mellinger talks about the challenges head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey face in their second year.

Here in Kansas City, without the shie of the Lombardi Trophy, the Chiefs are planning through their own obstacles as they approach the new league year, which officially begins March 1. The Chiefs received som good news this week, with a bigger-than-expected rise in the salary cap, but they are starting this race behind most of the teams they’re competing against.

Finally, as the entire football world turns its attention to the Combine, ESPN’s Adam Schefter explains that Kansas City’s serious needs this off season are on offense.

Their offense is a bigger problem. Right now they have an elite running back who is only 27 but has carried a tremendous workload the past couple of seasons, a high-quality fullback who isn’t on the field a lot, a wide receiver (Dwayne Bowe) listed as a solid starter but who may be in decline and then a bunch of starters who are either average, below average or untested.

That’s it for today, Addicts. We’re hoping for some news to come out of the Combine one way or another. As soon as it happens, we’ll let you know. Enjoy your weekend, check out the Combine on NFL Network and GO CHIEFS!
