The Morning Fix: Derrick Johnson, Chiefs Season Preview, LeBron James

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.

Derrick Johnson is one hell of a football player, but his journey there wasn’t easy.

It was opening day 2005 when Chiefs rookie linebacker Derrick Johnson crashed into Hall of Fame-bound running back Curtis Martin and stopped him for a 1-yard gain.

Tyler Bray: A tantalizing and frustrating young player.

During a two-play sequence in Sunday’s practice, Chiefs backup Tyler Bray showed both his strengths and weaknesses.

The benching of Sean Smith is a curious one, says Adam Teicher.

Credit to the Chiefs for benching Smith, despite his considerable salary cap number of $5.75 million, if they didn’t think he was deserving of a starting spot. But in a sense, the Chiefs, at least for the time being, have lost both of their starters from last year at a position where they weren’t deep to begin with.

Here is the National Football Post’s season preview for the Chiefs.

Critics will say it was the easy fourth-place schedule that served as the catalyst for Kansas City’s quick turnaround. I disagree. Having known John Dorsey for almost 25 years and having worked with Reid for one year, I know better. Both are outstanding leaders and did what was necessary to bring confidence to an already talented roster.

Will the Chiefs regress in 2014? KC Kingdom ponders the question.

All in all it will be difficult to repeat the 11 win season of last year, but 9 to 10 wins should be enough for the Chiefs to get back to the playoffs where as we all know anything can happen.

Two non-football stories:

- Our national nightmare is over: we know what number LeBron James will wear in Cleveland.

- Umm… what? How do you not know… I just… I don’t want to know.
