Projected 2014 Starters: Kansas City Chiefs from NFL.com
No team has taken more offseason hits than the Chiefs. They'll have two new starters on the offensive line, and they didn't get Alex Smith the help he needed at wide receiver or tight end. Donnie Avery, Travis Kelce and Anthony Fasano are all starters that the team would ideally upgrade from.
Chiefs Offseason Wrap-Up from ESPN
It's clear the Chiefs are counting on improvement from a group that includes three of last season's draft picks. Foremost is tackle Eric Fisher, who moves to the left side after a rocky rookie season on the right. Tight end Travis Kelce missed all of last season with a knee ailment after showing impressive receiving skills in the offseason and training camp. Sanders Commings also missed most of his rookie season with an injury but could wind up starting at free safety.
Have The Chiefs Really Improved? from ESPN
Just because they adequately plugged holes doesn't mean the Chiefs are better. In a couple of areas, the Chiefs can only be hopeful they don't take a large step backward. One is the offensive line, where they lost three players who were regulars last season. The big loss was left tackle Branden Albert. He will be replaced by Eric Fisher, who will eventually become as good a player as Albert was last season.
But anyone who watched Fisher's rocky rookie season last year can't think that day will come soon.

Mascots May Be Offensive from The Escanaba Daily Press
The Cleveland Indians have perhaps the most (arguably) offensive mascot in the country. There's the Atlanta Braves, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chicago Blackhawks, the Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors (though the latter two no longer use indigenous imagery.)...
...We are a nation fixated on Native American mascots. It's a history that goes back decades, even centuries. No doubt many of these schools and teams admired the fighting style and warrior prowess that these cultures exhibited in the early days of America, and thought it fitting to name their athletic teams after that memory.
