Good morning, Addicts! If you don’t know what day of the week it is, look at the calendar and say it with me … HUMP DAYYYYYYY. Hopefully everything is going well for you and yours as we continue through the early portion of summer. Here are your Kansas City Chiefs headlines from around the web.
Maclin with Chiefs could mean AFC West shift – Elliot Harrison of NFL.com
"Most people, including yours truly, assume the Broncos are one of the top-tier teams in the AFC, along with the Patriots and Colts. But really, wasn’t the disparity at receiver — the Broncos have Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders; Albert Wilson was the Chiefs’ second-leading wide receiver in 2014, with 16 catches for 260 yards — one of the biggest things separating Denver and Kansas City?"
Why the 2015 run defense should improve – Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride
"Second, the Chiefs should be playing from ahead more often than they were last year, which means more passing from the opposing team. That’s just optimism at this point but that should help the rushing numbers to something more respectable than 28th in the NFL."
How the extra point rule could affect Kansas City – Andrew Carroll of Arrowhead Pride
"9% may not seem like much. But over the course of a season, those missed attempts will suddenly be the difference between real wins and losses. If we assume there are about five touchdowns scored in an average NFL game, then every two games will produce 10 extra point attempts. One of those ten (10%) will be missed. And every time a team misses an extra point, they may be forced to respond by going for two on their next touchdown in order to recoup that missed point."
Scripps Spelling Bee champ takes on Voice of Chiefs – Chase Snider of Scrippsmedia.com
"National co-champion Vanya Shivashankar stopped by to visit the Kansas City Chiefs and take on legendary play-by-play announcer Mitch Holthus in a little spelling action."
