This week's Kansas City Chiefs connections, courtesy of the mothership, are a little bland with the exception of former Chiefs' OC Chan Gailey being on the list. If you don't recall, Gailey took quite a few former Chiefs' staffers with him to Buffalo when he "left" Kansas City.
We've also got Glenn Dorsey, Ron Edwards and another rural Kansas mention for you. Enjoy!
