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. Two weeks from this hour we will be discussing what the Chiefs did with their first round pick. I’m ready, are you?
Adam Teicher gives his five games that will define the Chiefs’ season.
This is the first Monday night game at Arrowhead Stadium in three years, so Chiefs fans should be primed for this one. The Chiefs will need them in rare form, too. This is the only home appearance for the Chiefs among a five-game early season stretch, so it’s easy to picture the Chiefs at below .500 at midseason if they don’t win this one.
More schedule talk from the good folks at Chiefs Spin.
The 2014 schedule as whole lacks a string of home games that would allow the Chiefs to build any momentum towards a playoff run. If they do make it to the postseason, they will enter it a more hardened and battle-tested unit than last year.
Arrowhead Pride reminds us that actual practices are happening right now.
While we’re over here talking about the best and worst games on the newly released schedule, the Kansas City Chiefs are back to work. The Chiefs offseason program began last Monday where we spoke to Andy Reid and some of the players after the first day. The media hasn’t been out there since then but the Chiefs continue working.
Josh Michaels at KC Kingdom has a fun deal on Mark McMillian.
As mentioned before, Mighty Mouse would never turn any heads with his size, but he made sure you knew who he was with his ability to cover bigger receivers.
Andy Reid is looking for versatile linemen, says Terez A. Paylor.
“I think it’s easier to go from tackle to guard than guard to tackle,” Reid said. “Matter of fact, I have a history, on teams that I’ve been on, of taking tackles in the draft and then moving them to guard and center. So if something were to happen at your tackle position, you can just take those guys and move them outside, even though their best position might be guard or center.”
