Good morning, Addicts. It’s Sept. 11, which should give us all pause. I rarely interject an opinion about anything here other than the Kansas City Chiefs, but this is a day for remembrance. On this day 14 years, lives were lost across this great country because of senseless acts. Having grown up in New York, and having had a man who amounts as a second father to me working at Ground Zero with the NYPD that day, it’s a sadness that will never quite leave.
Yet, that sadness can become something powerful. It is a day that bonded Americans, even if for only a brief moment. Hopefully, one day, we can unite in that spirit of togetherness and never let go.

"From one game manager to another, ESPN’s Trent Dilfer has picked the Kansas City Chiefs to meet the Dallas Cowboys in the Super Bowl. Sure, he has the Cowboys winning and Tony Romo winning the league MVP but how about that? The Chiefs in the Super Bowl. Dilfer had some nice things to say about Alex Smith a while back so he’s a known Chiefs believer."
Watt is ready to roll against Kansas City – Associated Press
"Watt was healthy, but coach Bill O’Brien didn’t think it was worth the risk for him to play even one snap in the preseason. That has given last year’s Defensive Player of the Year plenty of time to sit back and think about what he’ll do when he finally gets to play."
