Good morning! Here is your Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy!

An improved Hali is a scary thought for opponents. According to players that voted in the NFL Network's "Top 100 Players of 2012" list, Hali is the 34th-best player in the league--only three spots behind Super Bowl XLVI MVP Eli Manning. But Hali isn't the only Chiefs linebacker focused on improving this season, and that mindset could help the Chiefs boast the NFL's most dangerous linebacking corps from top to bottom.

ESPN.com blogger Bill Williamson named three Chiefs in the top five of his positional rankings for the AFC West. Out of the Chiefs four starting linebackers, only inside linebacker Jovan Belcher landed outside the top ten.

This is the 15th year the league has brought together draftees to hear speakers on such subjects as ''Are You Bigger Then The Game'' and ''What Defines Success?'' This gathering, which is a bit different because of the location in Aurora, Ohio, with a side trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in nearby Canton, begins Sunday with four days of orientation for NFC draft picks. The AFC choices attend from Wednesday through next Saturday.

I think the offense will be able to keep Hali on his heels and looking for the run just enough to keep him off of Ryan, and allow us to connect on some deep passes to Julio Jones and Roddy White in the intermediate and deep passing game. Our offensive line may not be world-beaters, but I believe they are better than KC's defensive line. That being said, the Chiefs do have FS Eric Berry patrolling the deep middle of the field, and he is a dangerous ball-hawking safety. If Ryan can keep the ball away form Berry, the Falcons should have no problem scoring points.

If it hadn't been for famed Kansas City Chiefs football coach Hank Stram, John Amos may never had a four-decade long career in Hollywood, including memorable acting roles in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Good Times" and "Roots."

A running back at Colorado State, Amos had tried out unsuccessfully for the Denver Broncos and was cut twice from the Chiefs. Stram, recalled the 72-year-old Amos, told him, "Young man, you are not a football player. You are a young man who happens to be playing football."

I also learned this during one of my conversations with former Oakland Raiders and current Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Stanford Routt. Especially when it comes to defensive backfield responsibilities, we don't really know what's going on because most of us don't talk to the players and coaches about specific plays all the time, and we're not really conditioned to watch deep secondary play because the standard TV angles haven't provided that perspective until now.
