The OTA's. Huh. I can't be there to see what is going on and the results won't become evident until Training Camp. But well have to wait for that.

  • Last Eve, I took a look at the Offense and how it shakes out for Starters and backups. It certain doesn't look like a droll situation. Certainly there are questions but every team has them. Every team has their top tier players, Solid and average performers and then the below average considerations. Every team has positioned players to be key depth players to provide needed fill when someone is out or needs a rest. Every team has draftees, second year players upon whom the team has high expectations. That is the way of it.

    Each season, every team pulls in free agents to fill needs. Every team has to let someone go due…

  • Much is being written in the dead time until Training Camp. I am not different. I can think of many sources of information that should be looked at and will link to them where appropriate. Keep in mind, that as a backup, you can have a solid performer rating as well, despite what pundits think(And a lot of them are so NFL heavy that I don't listen to them much. Well, hell, I have two ex-wives who said I couldn't hear and didn't listen good neither.

    These views are my views.

  • NSLU: A Look Back at an Offensive Line of Old

    The 1960s. This was my era of football, my era of the contest, my emergence as a Chiefs fan(since 1963). To be sure, it culminated in the appearance in the 4th Super Bowl* (the Chiefs second appearance), and a Victory at New Orleans.

    (Dawson & Co) * note corrected error in the first paragraph

    I savor it still.

    The AFL was thought to be the kid the bullies of the NFL turned to to mop up the blood on the street. It turns out it was not that way. After winning the first 2(Green Bay v KC, and Green Bay v Oakland), the NFL was predicting the 3rd and 4th games to be routes as well. Willie and the Jets defense solve that in the 3rd contest and the same was true for the 4th in Chiefs' 1970 victory.

    One thing to remember: The Chiefs did…

  • NSLU View: The Offensive Line

    (Denny Medley Photo)

    I am one of those who think the Chiefs OL with the player mix in house(including the new players), is a good mix of players. Also, I support the competition angle for earning a starting role as well as the NMU principle. The Dorsey/Reid program utters these things even if they do some tinkering and nfl blackwhite. At the same time as believing in the Wolf Method, I also believe in pulling in players that could put the Chiefs over the top which is why I truly thought the Chiefs would pursue Mathis. Reid put that to rest the last day of the Mini-Camp. Oh well.

    I do think…

  • NSLU Update: Chiefs sign WR Jerret Smith(McMurry U.)

    According to Herbie Teope on Twitter, the Chiefs "...The signed WR Jeret Smith to a contract, according to a source. Smith was in minicamp on a tryout basis. Roster back to 90 players."

    (Smith Grab, courtesy of McMurry U.)

    Smith was a WR at McMurray and was invited for a tryout. He was signed by the Chiefs today. Listed as 5'10" or, now, 6'0"-215, with a prolific receiving history at McM, but ESPN shows him 5'9"+, with about 4.6-40 speed. Smith was an un-drafted…

  • Now Versus Then

    Over the last two weeks or so, I have been thinking about the question marks regarding the ability of the Chiefs Offensive Line to turn it around from the 2014 fiasco. It was indeed that, FIASCO. The plans certainly started out with the right intent but immediately, the suspension of Donald Stephenson and the loss of Jeff Allen before the end of the game in week 1, had the Chiefs starting Offensive line in a bit of a shamble.

    I then looked at the competition internally for these players now and had the feeling that things weren't as bad as I made them as I pondered what sorts of disasters might befall the Chiefs in 2015.

    A quick perusal of the Actions by Dorsey/Reid and Co brought me to the following thoughts.

    Most often, it takes 2 or 3 years of experience for most players in the NFL to get it. Then as they approach the last year of their rookie contract, things seem to meld in their mind, with their teammates, if…
