The Morning Fix: Kickers, Rodney Hudson, Curses

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.

Jason Seibel wrote about the kicking competition the Chiefs have on their hands.

Succop only boasts a career-long field goal of 54 yards. That won’t wow anyone in regard to how strong his kicking leg is. More telling, though, is the amount of touchbacks he’s racked up compared to other kickers.

Of the 91 kickoffs Succop took during the 2013 season, nearly half of them (42) were returned for an average of 24 yards.

Arrowhead Pride asks which team is more cursed: Chiefs, Bills, or Browns?

KC Kingdom breaks down Rodney Hudson, who will be a key free agent after the 2014 season.

Rodney Hudson is a crucial piece for the Chiefs moving forward, and he is entering a contract year. This will be his fourth season, so he’s entering the prime of his career and the Chiefs need to find a way to lock him up.

This is a tweet to inform you Alex Smith is alive and well in San Francisco. Still no contract though…

Two non-football stories:

- There are five Royals who have a serious shot at making the All-Star team.

- Zusi and Besler will be at Sporting Kansas City’s next match on Sunday but they may not play.

    we’ll see about the kicker battle. While Santos is showing a more powerful leg, his production from 2012 to 2013 took a huge hit, down from a 100 percent to 69.6. Succop was only 1 for 4 from over the fifty last season, but Santos was only 2 for 6. Both kickers are similar under that distance, so I’m not seeing much of a difference here except one is younger, and one has nfl experience.

    Hmmm, Jason Seibel. Trying to recall why that name stands out. Could it be the name of the new Stealth fighter used by our outstanding US Air Force? Please, no clues. It will come to me.

    I agree that distance is important but…I’m for the guy that’s accurate when the game is on the line. That San Diego game last year still burns when I think about it……
