Friday Morning Update

  • Check out this article on recently signed UDFA Wisconsin WR Luke Swan -- "Swan knew the only way he could beat coverage was by being precise in his route running, catching and blocking technique. So that’s what he did." H/T Chiefs Coalition.

  • For some reason you need a log in to this newspaper site but I'm sure the bit I was able to glean is correct - Jacksonville State wide receiver Taurean Rhetta has signed a free agent contract to play for the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Can you name a former Chiefs' WR who went to a similarly named college?

  • This is unfortunate -- Broncos quarterback Cutler diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.

  • Jason Whitlock was on point in this article, giving sports blogs a balanced look until he ended with a line about, you guessed it, racism.

  • I have to admit I can always learn more about football formations which is why I read every football university post at Mile High Report. The Cover 2 is up today.

  • I don't know if anyone will even remember these types of articles at the beginning of the season - "Impact rookies: Ten players poised to succeed now in ideal situations" - but new Chief Brandon Flowers is on the list.

  • At some point, even Bengal fans have to be questioning their loyalty to a a completely undisciplined team.

  • And last but not least, the seventh edition of the WPI Roundtable has been posted.

One of the biggest storms I can remember passed through Kansas City last night, making my apartment light up like there were paparazzi outside (Okay, I sort of stole that like from Chiefs' FB Chris Manderino's blog). I don't think I ever seen such a sustained amount of lightning or heard such continuous thunder rolling.

We've gotten a lot of new visitors around here since last weekend's draft so I wanted to mention a couple of things. First, if you haven't already, sign up for an account here. You can do that at the top of this page. Even if you don't plan on commenting, at least sign up and log in because you'll be able to see notices of which comments you've read and which one's you haven't. That is one of the most indispensable features of SBN in my opinion.

We don't sell e-mail addresses or anything like so don't worry about giving up an e-mail address.

And finally just a quick note about our community. All opinions are welcome and ones that are boring or inflammatory are likely to be met with silence rather than a barrage of insults. Like every blog that's been around as long as we have, we have our regulars but don't let that deter you from jumping in. I've enjoyed reading the comments and posts of the new guys and just want to say keep up the good work.

First and foremost, we are Kansas City Chiefs fans here. Remember that and you'll be just fine.

If you're new and haven't commented, use this post to introduce yourself. Thanks for reading!
