Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning, and especially in the middle of the afternoon when things are starting to drag.  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 Fix.

With only one meaningful game left to play — that being Superbowl XLVIII — nearly every team in the league is in full-throttle scouting mode. The first major event of the scouting season is the annual Senior Bowl. Of course, the Chiefs are no different. Chiefs Insider Reid Ferrin talks about the game and more over at the Mothership this morning.

"This very game has been well represented by 17 players on the current Chiefs roster (listed below), including two of last year’s draft picks, Chiefs OT Eric Fisher and LB Nico Johnson.Tamba HaliDwayne BoweDustin ColquittQuintin DempsRishaw JohnsonJaye HowardRodney HudsonSanders CommingsDonnie AveryJon AsamoahJeff AllenA.J. JenkinsJames-Michael JohnsonAllen BaileyEric Kettani"

Also checking in from Mobile, AL the site of the college “All-Star” game, the Kansas City Star’s Terez Paylor also gives his take on potential Chiefs prospects. The positions they play may surprise you.

"Wide receiver. Safety. Tight end. Cornerback. Those are the obvious ones.But it would be wise not to sleep on the Chiefs’ need for more pass rushers. That’s right — a team that boasts one of the league’s top pass-rushing duos in outside linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston needs help getting after the passer, and that couldn’t have been more obvious over the last half of the season."

Finally today, Adam Teicher as ESPN has been laying out 10 plays he believes defined the Chiefs season. Today, he checks in with #10. 

"But Bowe saved his best for last, catching eight passes for 150 yards and a touchdown in the playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts. Yet, fittingly for the season he’d had, Bowe did not catch the fourth-down pass that served as Kansas City’s final offensive snap of the season."

That’s it for today, Addicts. Enjoy your Monday, and GO CHIEFS!
