The new face of the Kansas City Chiefs was enjoying a relaxing dinner with wife, Lauren, at a Kansas City country club. That is, until the waiter dished about their menu choices and conversation.

The Buffalo Bills already have a strong tie with the Kansas City Chiefs built into their history. Both were original member clubs of the American Football League and owners Ralph Wilson and the late Lamar Hunt were close friends. But on Hall of Fame weekend there will be another personal connection between Kansas City’s late Hall of Fame inductee Derrick Thomas and a member of Buffalo’s front office.
Strong Bills Ties to Derrick Thomas from BuffaloBills.com
"Derrick could get the crowd going," said Bill Cowher, the Chiefs defensive coordinator and linebackers coach during 1989-91 who went on to win the Super Bowl with the Pittsburgh Steelers. "For the franchise, he was a marquee player, a player who everyone around the league was talking about. Arrowhead was a tough place to play, and the reason was you couldn’t block Derrick Thomas. The noise got loud … and home stadiums benefit the defense."
Derrick Thomas was a Terror for Offense in the 1990s from the KC Star
"We’re not really concerned with what they’ve done in the past," said Pendergast, who became available to new Chiefs coach Todd Haley after the defensive coordinator was fired by the Cardinals.
"We’ll utilize the players we have and the skills they have. That’s the process of training camp, to learn about those things. So in that sense, we’re still evolving. We’ll do whatever our guys do best."
"He paved the way for so many athletes from Fort Wayne because he went to Snider," said Pollard, who played at South Side and Purdue. "He did what he had to do to get where he wanted to be. He played in the league for so many years, and he’s an NFL (Network) analyst now. That’s a big hype.

3rd and Long Foundation president Betty Brown, who has been with the charity since the beginning, will be among 50 people representing the organization at this weekend's Hall of Fame induction in Canton, Ohio.
Brown says that she was touched by Thomas's desire to give back to the community, and she is still inspired by the former Chief ten years after his death.
"I think what it means is that we're there," said Brown. "We're going to continue go go on."

Haven't seen any reports from King or Glazer yet this morning, and Gretz's Cup O'Chiefs is missing. They must have all gone out and got hammered.
The lone player Tweet is disappointing...
ToonIcon sittn here wishn i was at that damn event!!!!!

kb_kcstar So who's the Chiefs' No. 3 now, Brodie or Thigpen? And who's the odd man out?
mitchholthus Roster moves today....I think that process will continue....all thru camp
Chunt2318: Poor Brodie Croyle two years ago he was suppose to be the Chiefs quarterback of the future. Now, he may be the 3rd string quarterback.
DocRoze: Maybe it's wishful thinking, but the Chiefs actually look like they're being coached this year. More let's get it right, less just get done.
danejacobi: SportsCenter just made fun of a KC Chiefs fan who spelled "Chiefs" wrong. The fan spelled it "Cheifs". Unforgivable.
