Good morning! The players were off yesterday, and the media that covers them took a break as well. A light day of Kansas City Chiefs news. Today's schedule has a 10:40 walkthrough and 3:00 practice. Enjoy.
I’ve watched every snap of Chiefs training camp and I can assure you at this point there is not a lot of evidence available to start talking about taking 85 players down to 53 over the next four weeks...
...We plan to provide rankings each week of the NFL pre-season on the Chiefs roster and our thoughts on what we’ve seen from the practices and game.

"I think he’s the epitome of what I’ve coached for many, many years: being the same guy every day. He’ll be in the same seat (in meetings), he’ll be out on the field at the same time and not a lot changes. He’s just managed to get a little better each and every day in a lot of different areas."

Manno Reflects on Favorite Football Moments from Sachem Patch
The Chiefs haven't done anything to improve last year's team. Maybe I underestimate Kansas City because of their lack of star power, but I have them battling through a brutal schedule finishing 5-11.

Kansas City Chiefs: How will the offense function without Charlie Weis?
An Arrow Head [sic] resurgence happened for the Kansas City Chiefs last season on offense. Part of that success rightfully went to offensive coördinator Charlie Weis, who left the team to coach with the Florida Gators.
