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 more days and we get to meet six new Chiefs! (Give or take a few.)

In one way or another, the Chiefs are going to answer some questions this week. Via Kyle Pappas of Bleacher Report.

Kansas City has several needs still to address, and there are decidedly varying opinions on how exactly it should address them. But, ultimately, nobody’s quite sure what general manager John Dorsey‘s true intentions are—a realization that’s equal parts exciting and nerve racking.

The uncertainty has predictably created a flurry of questions from Chiefs Nation—most regarding which positions are of most concern and what implications potential picks would have on players currently on the Chiefs roster.

“It’s kind of different for us to be planting, not too many of us have did that, you know. We put our hands in dirt, but not in this fashion so it’s fun to come out here with the kids and do it,” said Chiefs Defensive Tackle Dontari Poe.

Former Chief Joe Perez opened a pizza shop in Kansas City.

Joe Perez, who grew up in Overland Park and played for the Kansas City Chiefs, partnered with his longtime friend, Andy Skeen, to open the delivery-only operation downtown in fall 2013. It delivers pizza until 4 a.m. daily in a 7-mile radius of downtown.

Could the Chiefs and Packers be looking at the same players? Via Arrowhead Pride.

I have noticed through tracking the KC Chiefs 2014 draft interests that the Packers are often connected to the same player. With Dorsey having learned under Packers GM Ted Thompson, it’s reasonable to suspect that the list of best available players between the Packers and Chiefs are similar because they’re picking so close to each other in the draft.

Two non-football stories:

- Nearly 25% of all songs on Spotify are “skipped” in the first 5 seconds.

- Most video ads online are not viewed. Shocker.
