Voting Opens For Chiefs' Mt. Rushmore from ProFootballTalk

For the Chiefs, the 12 finalists appear below. Pick up to four, and then tune in Monday at 5:00 p.m. ET.

And while Chiefs fans will have to sit through the Mt. Rushmore of the Raiders and vice-versa, don't forget that each Mt. Rushmore is preceded by a look at the team's worst losses.

Will Eric Fisher Sign Next? from ESPN

With Joeckel signed, the Chiefs and Fisher have nothing to wait for in the negotiations. Joeckel signed a four-year deal worth $21.2 million with a signing bonus of $13.799 million. There is no offset language and all the money is guaranteed.

With the rookie contracts slotted, Fisher and the Chiefs should be able to easily come to an accord soon. There are only five rookies who are unsigned in the AFC West.

The Economics Of The NFL Through The Eyes Of Brian Billick from Forbes

Indeed, free agency in the NFL, while an undeniable good, has exposed general managers (GMs) and coaches as all too human all too often. As Billick notes, the Kansas City Chiefs felt they were a defensive lineman away from the Super Bowl, only to sign Chester McGlockton. The problem was that McGlockton's performance and stock plummeted upon arrival. Bill Belichick, though much wiser today, once bet the farm while with the Cleveland Browns on Andre Rison.

So while NFL players have correctly sought and won the ability to achieve their market value, the irony here is that GMs and coaches are increasingly skeptical of building teams around past high flyers.

Top 20 Fantasy Wide Receivers For 2013 from National Football Post

16. Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs: Forget about the "game manager" label that quarterback Alex Smith picked up in San Francisco because there's no way a pass-happy head coach like Andy Reid is going to give up a high second round pick for a guy who excels and handoffs and check downs. If Bowe could amass 72 receptions for 1,162 yards and 15 touchdowns with Matt Cassel as his quarterback in 2010, we have to believe that he can attain similar numbers with a more consistent passer like Smith.

Is Chiefs' Tamba Hali Overrated? from Arrowhead Addict

NFL Zombie Apocalypse from NFL.com

Any band of survivors needs a leader, and Smith fits the bill. The leader is not always the most talented, but he makes good decisions and always finds a way to survive even when the odds are stacked against him. Smith can use the survival skills he honed in the NFL (staying a starting quarterback despite a bloated contract, the presence of a talented backup, and a small pool for free agent signal-callers) and carry the torch for humankind. That is, until his second-in-command challenges him for leadership of the group.
