The Morning Fix: De’Anthony Thomas, Vegas Odds, MMA Tap Out


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.

Vegas has the Chiefs at eight wins. Aaron Charles says that’s too low.

"Las Vegas has released the over/under for every NFL team’s win count for 2014, and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of faith in the Kansas City Chiefs. At least it’s a nice clean bet. Do you think the Chiefs will be a losing team or winning team? It’s as simple as that."

A different perspective of the Chiefs’ draft from (almost) two weeks ago.

"Of course, success goes a long way to giving a football culture legitimacy. The Patriots success has more to do with having the guy in the hoodie (Bill Belichick) making all the decisions and No. 12 running the offense (Tom Brady) than any special approach or way."

The Chiefs have the second youngest offensive line in the NFL.

"Kempsi, an Eagles writer for, covers one of the oldest units in the league, but his interesting anecdote paints the Chiefs offense through an interesting lens. The question is whether or not the Chiefs will reap the dividends of a young, athletic line or whether the lack of experience could come back to haunt them."

Herbie Teope says De’Anthony Thomas brings the “it” factor.

"“I think there are those guys that just have that ‘It’ factor as a returner,” Oregon head football coach Mark Helfrich said in a telephone interview. “He’s definitely one of those guys. He’s the all-time leading returner in Oregon history and we’ve had some good ones. Just a dynamic guy with the ball in his hands and he creates issues for teams.”"

Two non-football stories:

– The battle between “facts” and “feelings” is getting more depressing (and interesting).

– Cleveland is going to have the NBA’s top pick in the draft for the third time in four years. The lottery system is bunk.
