Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 1/28

Good morning! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy.

"DJ" And Chiefs Shine In 2014 Pro Bowl from The Mothership

If there was any question that the Pro Bowl wouldn't be competitive, the naysayers weren't aware of the Chiefs, who compete in everything they do, including "DJ".

Early in the first quarter, Johnson met Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles near the line of scrimmage and dropped him in his tracks. The former Texas Longhorns enjoyed a smile after the hit, but it was clear the game was seen as no joke by either side.

A Secondary Look At The Chiefs DBs In 2013 from The Mothership

The Chiefs ranked first in the NFL in miscellaneous scoring, with 11 TDs coming from interceptions, punt returns, kick returns and opponent fumble recoveries. Of the six defensive scores, the Chiefs secondary accounted for four, including "EB's" pick-six in the team's Week 3 win against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Trip To Super Bowl XLVIII from The Mothership

Last year, during the Signing Bonus, the final prize was a trip for two to Super Bowl XLVIII. 22-year STH Craig Zahnd was shocked to find out that he was the lucky winner of two tickets to the big game.

"When they told me I had won, my reaction was one of surprise," Zahnd explained. "It took awhile to sink in. They asked if I was interested in going and I said, ‘Of course I am!' I was thrilled. I've never been to a Super Bowl and always wanted to go."

Zahnd and his cousin, Eric, have shared Chiefs season tickets since 1992 and plan to attend Super Bowl XLVIII together this year. Video: Hear From The Chiefs After The Pro Bowl

Jamaal Charles Surprised By Hard Hit from ESPN

Jamaal Charles didn't anticipate such a hard hit from a teammate, especially in the Pro Bowl.

But Charles said he was not mad at Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson, who delivered a crushing high tackle to his Kansas City teammate during Sunday's game in Honolulu.

What Was Johnson Supposed To Do? from ESPN

No argument here that Johnson lowered his shoulder and hit Charles hard in the head-and-shoulder area in knocking him to the ground.

No penalty was called. It was a nice tackle by Johnson, and in any other game he would have been applauded for a job well done.

But this was the Pro Bowl and Charles is a teammate. So should Johnson have laid off?

Sorry, that one doesn't work.

Chiefs Star In Pro Bowl from ESPN

The Kansas City Chiefs were represented by 10 players at the Pro Bowl and some figured prominently. A look at how they fared:

-- Linebacker Derrick Johnson was the game's defensive MVP with eight tackles and a forced fumble. He also had a big hit on his Chiefs teammate, running back Jamaal Charles, in the first quarter.

Former NFL Players From Oklahoma Weigh In On Concussion Settlement And Share Their Experiences from News OK

Langston University athletic director Mike Garrett played seven years in the NFL. The 1965 Heisman Trophy winner out of Southern Cal said he suffered two or three concussions, including one in Denver while he played for the Kansas City Chiefs.

"I landed on my head, and my left side - I couldn't stop my left arm and shoulder from wiggling," Garrett said. "The team doctor told me to lay down or sit on the bench for a little bit, but I told him I needed to get back in the game. I went back in and told (quarterback Len) Dawson that I'm not worth a hill of beans right now and just move me in motion."

Chiefs Position Analysis: Defensive Line from ESPN

Free agency/draft priority: High if Jackson leaves. The Chiefs wouldn't necessarily need to spend a lot of money or use a high draft pick, but they would need to make an investment. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper in his first mock draft of the season has the Chiefs taking Notre Dame defensive end Stephon Tuitt in the first round. If when the draft rolls around Tuitt proves to be a good value when the Chiefs make the 23rd pick, they should take him.

Why An Outdoor, Cold-Weather Super Bowl Is A Great Idea from Forbes

Cold weather-really, any out-of-the-ordinary weather, save for fog-has made for some of the most memorable games in the history of the sport. The Ice Bowl (1967 NFL Championship game), the Tuck-Rule game (2001 AFC Divisional playoffs) and the snowy games that took place during Week 14 of this year (highlighted by the Detroit Lions-Philadelphia Eagles white-out game). During this season's Wild Card Playoff round, much was made over the excitement of the Indianapolis Colts epic comeback against the Kansas City Chiefs. It was a fun game, but it was played in the sanitized atmosphere of a dome...

...Cold-weather games are ready-made for NFL Films, the vapor-wreaths from the breaths of the lineman, the wind-burned coaches on the sidelines...just insert a "Voice of God" and the dramatic music, and it's a wrap.
