Every Sunday morning we do our best to catch you up on everything you may have missed during the week in a series we like to call AA Sunday Review. Here’s some of the best stuff from the past week.

MONDAY: Finding The Chiefs A Safety by Lyle Graversen

"It’s my belief that with how KC has shown that they prefer to use Eric Berry around the line of scrimmage that their other starting safety needs to be strong in coverage. That means both being able to cover some in man to man and dropping back and playing “center field” as the last line of defense against the deep ball. If you feel like KC would be better served with a bruising enforcer type next to Berry, feel free to make your case in the comments below, but you won’t find those guys in this post (with maybe one exception)."

TUESDAY: Three Things I Think I Think by Stacy D. Smith

"We’re exactly one month away from the NFL Draft, the first wave of free agency is over, and the Chiefs will soon be back to work when offseason workouts begin on April 21. Now is as good a time as any to reflect upon what we may know about the 2014 Chiefs. Okay maybe it’s just the first dead spot in the NFL’s offseason? Don’t be so judgmental. There’s not much new information to go around and pickings are slim in the blogosphere this time of the year (thanks for moving the draft to May, Mr. Commissioner). It’s much too early to come to any concrete conclusions about this group, but a few things stick out in my mind."

TUESDAY: Top Ten Football Movies Of All-Time by Nick Floyd

"Now before we get into the meat here and start listing off great football movies I took the time to ask The Collective (inside joke from college) about some of their top football movies. So I took into consideration their input when coming up with this list so you might actually call it the Top Ten Football movies brought to you by The Collective, but I digress."

WEDNESDAY: Chiefs Offseason: Land Of A Thousand Dances by Laddie Morse

"Thank you Wilson Pickett for popularizing the song “Land Of A Thousand Dances” because as much as the early 1960s became an explosion of dances inspired by that new rage called “rock-n-roll,” the Kansas City Chiefs offseason has become an explosion of questions, all of which must eventually be “worked out” like some form of the Watusi."

WEDNESDAY: AAMA: Chiefs Home Games, Sound Record, The Masters, Beer by Ben Nielsen

"However, I don’t think that represents how good the Chiefs schedule is from an entertainment stand point. On a scale of 1-to-10, with 10 being a “must see” I would say there is nothing lower than a 4 on the Chiefs schedule. So the ranking would look something like this."

THURSDAY: Where Do Right Guards Come From? by Ben Nielsen

"To get an idea of where some of the better guards come from, I put together two very simple charts of what some of the better teams are doing with the right guard position and where some of the more notable right guards were taken in the draft. Let’s start with what some of last year’s best team’s did at the position first."

FRIDAY: Debbie Downer Talks NFL Draft (Part 1) by Kenny Cember

"I do not know what is going on in General Manager John Dorsey and Head Coach Andy Reid’s head. However, I do know what Chiefs Kingdom, more specifically what #ChiefsTwitter, is thinking. There are three main opinions that I’ve heard from #ChiefsTwitter that I’d like to address, including my own fourth option. I will also try to weigh in the pros and cons for each option."

SATURDAY: The Odds On Ten Positions The Chiefs Could Take In The First Round by Laddie Morse

"While the Chiefs need to pick up a player in this draft who can help put pressure on the QB, there appear to be others who could help out with that later in the draft so, feeling like they have to solve that problem in round one shouldn’t necessarily be priority one."
