The Morning Fix: Secondary, Vance Walker, Bees


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.

KC Kingdom looks at some of the negatives surrounding the Chiefs.

People might say I’m a bit of a pessimist going into this season, and I think I have every right to be. Did you see the implosion of the Chiefs towards the end of 2013? Because if you did, you might be panicking too.

Arrowhead Pride takes a shot at sorting out the secondary.

You know what, I’m not so sure the Chiefs really made an effort to retain Brandon Flowers. At least not a serious one. If they had, you’d think that Flowers wouldn’t show as much angst towards the Chiefs as he’s been with his comments. It seems pretty clear that he feels disrespected (much like Javier Arenas did last year, but with better reason), or at least angry as to the timing of when he was cut (though he’s gotta understand the business reasons for that timing).

We posted about this during the weekend and we’ll do it again here. Terez A. Paylor has a strong piece about Vance Walker you should read.

“You’ve got to learn,” Walker said. “It’s just a respect thing. There’s guys were here working their butts off, and I’ve got to work my butt off. I can’t come in here and be like ‘Hey, you know, I’m the guy.’ That’s not the type of person I am, and they know that.”

- Tracy Morgan is suing Wal-Mart over the crash that severely injured him and killed another.

    One major point that undercuts any of the angst felt by Flowers is the low ball contract he ended up with in San Diego. His contract is not one of being a Pro Bowler. It is of the “Show Me” variety. Several posters wrote of the many teams interested in him after he was cut. Yes, there were several, but, not one team wanted to pay him anywhere near his old contract.

    I wish Tracey Morgan could include the Senator from Maine in his law suit. She was the one who decided to go with her lobbying money from the trucking associations and strike the new rule demanding more off duty rest for truckers. Yeah, let ‘em drive 36 straight hours, right?
