Kansas City Chiefs: Facing the lull of the offseason


We are right in the middle of the offseason lull for the Kansas City Chiefs, but there are a lot of things to look forward to in the coming weeks.

For the Kansas City Chiefs and their fans there is an event that rises in the middle of the summer: the offseason lull. Yes there are things for the Chiefs to do right now, most importantly locking up safety Eric Berry for the long haul, but beyond that not much happens around mid July.

For a huge fan of the Chiefs and a staff writer for Arrowhead Addict that lull of the offseason can be a killer. This is about the perfect storm of big news on the horizon, news from the past, combined with not a lot going on in between. So we work tirelessly to come up with stories about the Chiefs or opinion pieces that take us from point A to point B, point B being the start of training camp.

It is in these times that fans of the greatest organization in the NFL, the Chiefs fill their days with the musings of Chiefs highlights from the previous season, as well as speculations about the upcoming season. It is also the time to look towards training camp, when the pads come on and the real tests for 90 players begin.

The Kansas City Chiefs find themselves look upwards for the 2016 season. The are coming off one of their best seasons as a team, despite losing players to injury during last season. The AFC West looks wide open for a new team to take the crown and KC is eyeing that title very hard in 2016.

Yes, the lull that happens every July is hard to take for the Chiefs Kingdom, and we all go through the pains during that time. There is light at the end of the tunnel for us all. Training camp is a few weeks away, that means daily stories, training camp battles,and pictures from Missouri will only help excite and rise the anticipation.

So take heart Chiefs kingdom, even though there the lull is in full swing right now, there is so much to look forward to. As someone who has done the very same thing most of Chiefs fans have done, I have searched YouTube endlessly looking at Chiefs videos, and I have posted one of my personal favorites below.

What say you, Addicts? What do you do during the lull of the offseason? What are looking forward to most in the coming weeks? Let us know in the comments.
