  • NSLU: No News Is Good News?

    With the Kansas City Chiefs having been active in week one of Free Agency, they solved some problems and enabled themselves to be selective during the draft. No one doubts that the signings were key. At the same time, there are positional exposures at ILB, CB, C, OT, WR and finding a 3rd Tight End.

    Today, Chiefs Free Agent Joe Mays, ILB, signed a contract -- but not with KC. Rather Mays will play for the New York Jets.

    This past week, the NSLU reported on the KU Pro-Day held at the Chief's KU Med Center and quoted John Dorsey extensively about the importance of the day.

    Is No News Good News?

    At this point, the draft is "days" away. Authors, pundits, college and pro experts are all taking their shot at guessing who each team will draft. They are…

  • KC area Pro Day (KU Med Ctr at the Chiefs Kingdom)

    (Dorsey and Co, 2013 Photo)

    Chiefs host local Pro Day for draft prospects and there were many players in attendance. Herbie Teope published a piece today that recorded who was present. Chiefs coaches and scouts were also very interested spectators.The Scouting crew is busy attending every Pro Day around the country. Today, the Local media was not allowed.

    Recent Pro Days that are of note and which the Chiefs Scouting crew attended: Arkansas, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Ole Miss, Minnesota, Northwestern, Eastern Illinois, Auburn, Alabama State, Buffalo. At the Stanford Pro day, for example, DL Ben Gardiner(Fresno St) made the most of it and the Chiefs are paying…

  • (Dorsey and Reid, 2013: The Beginning of a New Era at the Chiefs Kingdom)

    It's a fact that the off-season sees every NFL Team Organization Busy with rating and rankings, attending events such as Pro Days at various locations, constructing a draft board and working to fill in the blanks (exposures, weaknesses) while at the same time, resolving contracts with existing players. It is also true that John Dorsey leads the way in providing talent to head coach Andy Reid and that both Reid and Dorsey work closely together in the Chiefs Organization.

  • Art Powell(1937-2015)

    Mr. Powell has passed away. This is another day of remembrance.

    Powell played collegiate football at San Jose State University, was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles, later his career took an abrupt turn to the west when the Titans sold his rights to the Raiders. Powell was originally a Defensive Back, but note the photo of Powell v the Chargers at the Coliseum. He was made famous by the switch from defense to offense. More on this later.

    Art Powell would go up and contest any football in the air. He led the Titans and the AFL in Yards and touchdowns in 1960. He was picked up by the Oakland (Dastardly) Raiders…

  • NSLU: Filling the Hiatus

    So. Quiet on the Free Agent Front. A month from the draft. The Chiefs GM Dorsey & Co are attending Pro Days.

    You could I guess, grab a couple of spoons for percussion played off the knees when you next find yourself at the next banquet you attend. Oh. Most people don't attend banquets in lieu of rock concerts in todays social "melange". Most don't read or appreciate literature any longer I suppose. But to "Fill that Hiatus?" try This!

    (John Dorsey and the Chiefs Scouts at work, Spring, 2014)

    What will we do?  I noted that the updates went on the boards today and went and experimented with the Mock Draft Tools. Here are 3…

  • NSLU: The "Chiefs" Are All About Believing

    One of the co-hosts of the Beat and I were exchanging about this great article by BJ Kissel -- Tamba Hali.

    I feel this article should be read. It is somewhat like time travel for me, remembering how things were with teams in the old AFL In KC. That was a magical decade.

    The link is Here!

    I thought about this as I unwound from an overnight drive to Spokane to deliver my elder son Frank to the airport. He is headed out for another adventure, Columbia for spear fishing and then a hunt in Africa. I envy him this.

    Hali is the epitome of what I recall about the early "Chiefs". Clark Hunt has put…
