Slim pickings today, but I saw this photo and thought it caption worthy. One practice today, and from numerous reports it is supposed to be closed to the press and public.
Really the only comments from camp that have caused any type of commotion have come from Haley himself. As a first-time head coach, Haley has been careful with his words, going all the way to his opening press conference in February. Since then, he’s grown far more comfortable talking with the media and has displayed a sense of humor and a self-depreciating outlook that make the daily sessions a bit less stiff.

For now, the Chiefs are turning to fourth-year linebacker Corey Mays. He’s the stand-in, and the 25-year-old journeyman has a chance to steal the starring role from Thomas. Mays hasn’t missed a practice, and Chiefs coach Todd Haley said Wednesday that the former New England and Cincinnati player has "gotten a little bit better every day."
"It had nothing to do with my feelings towards anybody. (Cassel is) working hard. He’s into it. He cares about it. This is training camp. We’re trying to evaluate a lot of guys, a lot of different receivers, running backs, tight ends, line, the whole deal."

"Everything is so damn doom and gloom with the Kansas City Chiefs! So everybody, myself included, can just calm down a little... Matt Cassel is the starter and the team is world's better than a year ago."
From KC Confidential
Not sure it will matter this season, but the Chiefs have one advantage over their AFC West competitors: they will have less travel time than the Chargers, Raiders and Broncos.
This year, the Chiefs will travel 16,896 miles, which ranks 18th this season in most miles to reach 10 road games.
