The Morning Fix: Marcus Cooper, Backup Quarterbacks, World Cup


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.

Husain Abdullah is spending his month off by promoting football and his faith.

"A player from the National Football League (NFL), Abdullah will participate in a range of activities focusing on promoting American football and demonstrating how he balances a professional sports career with his Islamic faith."

Joe Delaney died 31 years ago yesterday.

"The Kansas City Chiefs lost a very promising second year player 31 years ago today when running back Joe Delaney lost his life. Some might wonder exactly who that is, but most fans of the NFL will at least recall the name."

Are the Chiefs contenders for a top five defense next season?

"Bottom line, if their pass rush continues to perform like it can then they will be in the hunt."

The question of who is going to back up Alex Smith is going to be one of the most interesting ones during training camp.

"Murray is going to be a rookie, but his chances are greater than Bray’s in my opinion. When Murray was drafted, I figured that Kansas City’s plan was to have Smith tutor him for a few years and then let Murray take the reigns. It’s obviously hard to tell how good Murray is in the NFL since preseason hasn’t even started yet, but I wouldn’t necessarily be opposed to this option."

From Matt Verderame, this is a MUST READ on Marcus Cooper.

Two non-football stories:

– This is why you should be watching the World Cup.

– Or maybe this is why you should be watching the World Cup. Whatever.
