The Morning Fix: Jamaal Charles, Alex Smith, Training Camp

Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning.  Here at Arrowhead Addict, we understand that for a Kansas City 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. Today is my birthday. The Chiefs are celebrating by having their players report for training camp, so what are you getting me?!

Jamaal Charles may hold out of camp in an effort to improve his contract. Adam Teicher says the Chiefs should be cautious.

[I]n this case I’m going to urge the team to be a lot more cautious in handing out their money.

Betting odds have the Chiefs at 8-8 this season.

Adam Schein says Alex Smith is worth a big contract.

In three career playoff games, Alex Smith has nine touchdown passes and zero picks. Remember when he outgunned Drew Brees and the high-powered Saints in January 2012? Three touchdown passes (including the game winner), one thrilling touchdown run and a postseason triumph no Niners fan will ever forget. While the injury-riddled Chiefs lost a barnburner to the Colts on Wild Card Weekend this past January, it certainly wasn’t the quarterback’s fault — Smith accounted for 435 yards of total offense and four touchdown passes.

Expectations for the Chiefs have changed after last year’s success.

One year ago, the Kansas City Chiefs were coming off a two-win season that led to the ouster of the general manager and coach, and the turnover of roughly half the roster.

There’s a different feel heading to training camp this season.

Will the Chiefs carry four quarterbacks in 2014? Arrowhead Pride takes a look.

Will the Chiefs carry four quarterbacks? The consequence here being Tyler Bray. If the Chiefs carry four, Bray makes the team. If they don’t, my money would be on the Chiefs keeping Daniel and Murray ahead of him.

Also, Larry Duvernay-Tardiff should see some time at guard this summer.

Herbie Teope takes a look at Eric Fisher.

The Chiefs’ 2013 first-round draft pick (No. 1 overall) had a simple message following Tuesday morning’s training camp practice.

“I’m ready to go,” left tackle Eric Fisher said. “I’m out here working and that’s all that matters.”
