Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning. 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 Morning Fix.
Good morning, Addicts. The Morning Fix is brought to you this morning by the author’s continued inability to breathe due to invisible particles floating around in the air. Oxygen: Key for general life success.
Again, sorry it today ends up being strange. Speaking of strange, to the links!
Josh Michaels over at KC Kingdom did a really cool feature on Don Klosterman, a post inspired noted Addict BertTheClock. It’s a good read.
Over a three year span, Klosterman would become a talent scout and executive for the Kansas City Chiefs, helping to build a legendary time for Kansas City sports. Perhaps the three biggest moves Klosterman ever made were lure Bobby Bell, Buck Buchanon, and Otis Taylor away from the NFL.
Mike Wilkening of Pro Football Talk thinks the Chiefs are one of many teams who may be looking to add a running back during draft weekend.
The Bengals, Bills, Broncos, Buccaneers, Cardinals, Chiefs, Colts, Cowboys, Falcons, Giants, Patriots, Rams, Ravens, Redskins, Steelers and Texans are other teams who seem logical contenders to bring in another back.
Adam Teicher has some fan reaction to his series on the Chiefs’ cap spending.
Though there is plenty of room for debate on the specific decisions the Chiefs are making, I like their general philosophy of paying their playmakers.
Arrowhead Pride asks if the Chiefs should take Teddy Bridgewater if he slips to pick 23.
Let’s start with Teddy Bridgewater, the Louisville quarterback who has been mocked anywhere from the first overall pick to the end of the first round. I haven’t spent much time looking at Bridgewater because he probably won’t be there for the Chiefs, although him slipping is a possibility, as slim as it might be.
In a stunning revelation, Andrew Brandt says not everything in ‘Draft Day’ is true to how a front office works. OUTRAGE!
While Draft Day held my interest and at times came tantalizingly close to mirroring reality—especially the tension and emotion in the green room, where players nervously wait for their names to be called while TV cameras record every reaction—it predictably revolved around cinematic “wow” moments rather than the tedious reality of working in an NFL front office. The true minutiae of a football operation may only be fascinating to avid football fans, so I understand the need to portray it in a more sensational light for mass appeal.

Two non-football stories:
– Albert Pujols is four home runs away from 500 career homers, but no one seems to care.
– This is a three-year old boy who ended up stuck in a claw machine. Well played, kid.
