What Do Seahawks Have That Chiefs Don't? A Shutdown Secondary from FS Kansas City
Don't get him wrong: Castellane, who tracks the Chiefs for PFF.com, thinks the Andy Gang is good, too. But as the City of Fountains grits its teeth and gets ready for a week of slobbering over Peyton Manning and whining about the weather (it's Jersey in January; yeah, people, it might snow), Chiefs fans would be wise to take a long, hard look at Seattle's gifted (and loquacious) cornerback.
Not his words. His play.
What do THEY have that YOU don't?
Him. Or rather, what he represents.
Chiefs Position Analysis: Offensive Line from ESPN
The franchise player option exists for Albert again. But the Chiefs have Fisher now and though his rookie season wasn't particularly productive, he should return as a much-improved player after a year in Kansas City's strength program. Fisher could move to Albert's spot at left tackle and Stephenson, who the Chiefs have viewed as a starter-quality player, can step in at right tackle. That's the Chiefs' best plan for this situation.
The money they would save on Albert's contract could go a long way toward solving problems elsewhere on the roster.
The rager went down Thursday night at M Nightclub in Honolulu ... and we're told Jamaal sent the place into a frenzy when he hopped on stage and spun "Ocho Cinco" by French Montana with DJ Jami.
Give Me A 'P,' An 'R,' An 'O'... See Me At The Pro Bowl from The Springfield News-Leader
Summer Straub, who was been a Chiefs cheerleader for five seasons, was chosen this year to represent the organization during the Pro Bowl.
"This is a huge honor. I'm really nervous but also really excited," Straub said in a Q & A on the Chief's website.
"There is only one girl from each team that is able to represent their city and their team, so I'm nervous, but I'm also extremely excited to see the Chiefs Kingdom in Hawaii. This is a huge honor and I'm so thankful for the opportunity."

"Secret Weapon" Reece Says Aloha From Pro Bowl from The San Francisco Chronicle
Rice picked Carolina fullback Mike Tolbert, then Sanders picked Reece and made a startling announcement.
"That's who we want," Sanders said. "We love him because he's not getting the ball. All we want him to do is block, for that man over there," Sanders said during the NFL Network broadcast, pointing to Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles.

Facing the interior defensive linemen of Team Sanders will be no easy task for
Nick Mangoldand the Team Rice centers and guards.
There's Dontari Poe (6'3", 346), who helped anchor a Kansas City defense that led the AFC with 36 takeaways. Then there's Tampa Bay's Gerald McCoy (6'4", 300), whose 7.5 sacks in the second half of the season were more than any other DT in the NFL.
Alex Smith is coming back... to face his former team. The 49ers will host Smith, their quarterback for seven seasons, and the Kansas City Chiefs as part of a very enticing - and competitive - regular season schedule. The team will also welcome Robert Griffin III and Washington to the Bay Area. On the road, San Francisco is going to Dallas, New York, Denver, New Orleans and, if you can call it a roadie, to Oakland. There are those two divisional games versus the Seattle Seahawks, too. Those should be, well, anticipated.
"His contributions were immense for our team," Brees said. "I will definitely miss him. I know that he is going to be a great asset to that team, that offense, and certainly with the personnel that he has a chance to work with there."
Brees' former backup Chase Daniel, who signed with the Kansas City Chiefs last offseason after four years in New Orleans, also chimed in on Lombardi's hire via Twitter.
