Good morning everyone. NJ Chiefs Fan is out traveling today so I'm filling in. There's not much out there but here's what I found for today's Kansas City Chiefs news, including NFL Network's "32 in 32" on the Chiefs.
The Chiefs' offense also hinges on Brian Daboll, who was hired this offseason to replace the retired Bill Muir as offensive coordinator. Daboll earned Crennel's respect during their time with the New England Patriots, but Daboll doesn't come to Kansas City with a killer resume running NFL offenses. The Dolphins ranked 22nd in the league in 2011, while his two seasons in Cleveland ended with rankings of 29th (2010) and dead last (2009).
It only took one bad step to put Aaron Weaver's playing career in limbo again.
There had been no contact at all during the play, a run-of-the-mill comeback route Weaver could run ninety-nine times without incident. But as the came out of his break, his plant foot stuck in the practice turf at Syracuse University's Manley Field House and he felt a sudden, piercing pain in his knee.
"It was a regular route in a regular practice," said Weaver, "But my foot got caught in the turf and as I tried to get out, I tore my ACL."
Here are mine:
I think the Chiefs will go 11-5, win the AFC West outright and will win a playoff game. Depending on how things shake out, they could find themselves in the AFC Championship game.
