Greetings, and welcome to another Monday. With an even more meaningless than usual preseason game ahead, the intersting stories this week may come from the fact that rosters get cut down tomorrow and there will likely be signings. As most of you saw, the Chiefs got a bit of a head start on that yesterday. Enjoy your Kansas City Chiefs news!
Difficult as it might be for Bowe, a fourth-year receiver, to remain silent, there’s little doubt that the Chiefs’ plan for him is working — at least for now. And his silence is part of a plan. When reporters approached Bowe on Sunday, a team employee caught the player’s eye and shook his head, reminding Bowe to keep quiet. It was a message, perhaps, that Bowe’s silence is an organizationwide mandate. He obliged, chuckled and got back to whatever it is he does.
The last time the Kansas City Chiefs won a pre-season game, their coach was Herm Edwards and their president was George W. Bush.
The Chiefs are, in fact, the only team in the NFL without a single pre-season win since 2008. A loss on Thursday night to Green Bay will have them dragging an 0-4 exhibition mark into the regular season for the second straight year — not exactly a confidence-builder for a franchise trying to gain traction after winning a paltry 10 regular-season games the past three seasons.
Despite Lack of Preseason Wins, Chiefs Confident They are Making Progress from The Canadian Press
After months, city and county officials are still at odds over an $8.5 million upkeep fee, part of the leases that govern the Chiefs’ and Royals’ use of the Truman Sports Complex.
Kansas City Mayor Mark Funkhouser has called publicly for an end to the city’s share of that expense — $2 million per year. He contends that it’s Jackson County’s legal obligation under the lease, not the city’s.

My man crush for Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dexter McCluster continues to grow. This guy is going to be used all over the field. He was at running back, receiver, punt returner and kickoff returner over the weekend. I also still firmly believe he (along with Thomas Jones) is going to severely hurt the production of running back Jamaal Charles. There are only so many touches to go around, and all three are going to cannibalize each other.
NFL Preseason: Week 3 Thoughts from KFFL
Bryan, the former Australian rules football player, said he has punted well this summer and would like to think it would come down to the whole body of work and not just the past couple of days. He should get a chance to shine against the Chiefs the way Masthay did against the Colts.
Masthay has Another Fine Day from The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
As part of its NFL season kick-off promotion, the local office of the National Football League has invited a group of San Diego Chargers cheerleaders out for a tour of five Chinese cities where they'll do press and attend events to raise awareness about the start of the new NFL season - on September 9 - and promote the NFL's local TV and online broadcasts. The Charger Girls are scheduled to be in Beijing from September 11-14, during which time they'll attend an NFL road show and presumably be on local TV a lot. Fittingly, the first Monday Night Football broadcast shown this season in China will be the Kansas City Chiefs vs. the San Diego Chargers.
