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. Is it May 8 yet?
Reid Ferrin informs us about Barry Rubin and his role in Phase One of the offseason workouts.
"The Kansas City Chiefs continue this week with Phase One workouts of their offseason program, focused primarily on the permitted strength and conditioning sessions, as well as physical rehabilitation work, leading into the 2014 campaign."
Are the Denver Broncos opening the door for the Chiefs in 2014?
"Long story short, the Broncos are neglecting the one player that is the entire key to their success, and it should benefit the Chiefs greatly. Much has been made about how difficult this schedule will be for the Chiefs, but the Broncos schedule is just as tough and could be a difficult run for an almost-40 quarterback who has lost some of his security."
Josh Michaels of KC Kingdom says we’ll learn a lot about the Chiefs in the first five weeks of the season.
"I’d say if the Chiefs can escape that 5 game stretch at 2-3, they would still be in good shape for the second half of their season. Anything above that would be cake, as that would mean they beat at least two of the better teams on their schedule."
Terez A. Paylor tells the story of punter Steven Clark, a Kansas City native, who may be drafted next week.
"It wouldn’t be completely accurate to simply say he was happy to be there. The combine is basically a job interview, after all, and Clark certainly has aspirations of being a longtime pro.But put it this way; when asked if he thought this was all possible back during his days as a defensive end and tight end for the Park Hill Trojans, Clark’s earnest response revealed the whole story."
"Former Chiefs Dunta Robinson, Boomer Grigsby and Corey Mays are scheduled to join the four-day training session at Bowling Green State University on May 12-15, according to an NFL news release."
Two non-football stories:
– Donald Sterling has been banned from the NBA for life. Good riddance.
– I have a thing for Emma Stone.
