Coffee with the Chiefs – Kansas City, best in West?


Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs went undefeated in the preseason with a victory last night over the St. Louis Rams, which means they are going to the Super Bowl. It’s not up for debate, and if you want to argue, show yourself out. Regardless, it’s great to know that the next time we see Kansas City taking the field, it will be for keeps when they visit the Houston Texans. It’s a beautiful time to be a football fan.

Here is the news you need to know:

NFL Network analysts split on Chiefs, Broncos in WestJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"I’m impressed that many people picked the Chiefs to be honest. The Chiefs still haven’t beaten the Broncos since Peyton Manning came to town three years ago. Manning has lost one regular season game against the AFC West in the last three years. They own the division."

Is Eric Kush on the roster bubble? Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"Interesting. Fulton has taken practice reps at center before. And if a reporter was asking that question to Reid, I would be willing to bet that it was because Fulton was taking reps at center that day. (I wish I could have been at practice that day but SB Nation meetings took me to sunny Austin, Texas this week and now all I can think about are those delicious breakfast tacos. Mmm … tacos.)"

Kansas City continues to invest in backup quarterbacksMichael David Smith of Pro Football Talk

"Backup Tyler Bray has agreed to a two-year, $1.925 million contract extension through 2017, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Although the deal contains no guarantees, it’s a great deal for Bray in one respect: The Chiefs are agreeing to pay Bray’s $510,000 salary this year, even though Bray is on the non-football injury list because he tore his ACL this offseason."
