General manager John Dorsey talks job with ChiefsDesmond Conner of The Hartford Courant

"When Dorsey, 54, came to Kansas City with coach Andy Reid in 2013, the Chiefs were coming off a 2-14 season in 2012. They were 11-5 and made the playoffs in 2013, one of the biggest turnarounds in team and league history. Last season they were 9-7 but missed the playoffs."

Did Chiefs land two starters at inside linebacker?Stagdsp of Arrowhead Pride

"For this film review, I watched four games from DJ Alexander, and five from Ramik Wilson. I was looking for “wow” moments, (positive or negative) and evidence that the LB I was watching had the ability to “win” in the run game and / or the passing game."

Kansas City must find role for De’Anthony ThomasDan Schmelzer of NFL Spin Zone

"The Chiefs currently list Thomas as a running back, but it is not like he plays the position in a traditional role. The Chiefs did line Thomas up in the backfield at times last season, but they were not giving him the ball like a true workhorse running back. Thomas’ carries mostly came on jet-sweeps and counter plays that allowed him to use his skills in open space to make defenders miss."

Extra point rule changes will affect 2015BJ Kissel of

"The extra point attempt will now take place from the 15-yard line, and defenses will now also have the opportunity to score on a return of a failed two-point conversion. The two-point conversion attempt will still take place from the 2-yard line. Under the previous rule the ball was dead after the failed attempt."
