Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 3/30

Your Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet. Another light day on stories, but some funny stuff in the tweets.

It forces teams to make decisions on whether they are going to head out and pay attention to these sessions. Sometimes they do, sometimes they do not.

And sometimes they attend these Pro Days when they aren’t interested in any of the big name players there, and sometimes they skip the workouts of players they really like and are interested in drafting. It’s all part of the misdirection and subterfuge that goes on around the league in the months leading up to the draft.

"Sometimes we would purposely not have a scout there," said one former NFL personnel director and general manager. "Sometimes there is a little strategy or misdirection. It really depends on who the player is."

So when the word comes down that the Chiefs were at this certain player’s Pro Day, but were not at another player’s workout it may not be evidence of anything.

"Could be," he said.

Importance of Pro Days … Tuesday Cup O’Chiefs from Bob Gretz

Chambers said today. ''I keep getting back to execution. We weren’t all on the same page for some games. We had to scratch and claw and continue to play and get better at it.''

That shouldn't be a problem for the Chiefs this year. The Chiefs added four offensive free agents: running back Thomas Jones, linemen Ryan Lilja and Casey Wiegmann and wide receiver Jerheme Urban. Most if not all should be significant players for the Chiefs this season.

They added Charlie Weis as their offensive coordinator. In Chambers’ opinion, the Chiefs have the necessary parts on offense and now it’s just a matter of making it fit.

A fresh start from The Red Zone

Dan LeFevour's NFL draft rumors continue to heat up, with the Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns considered the most interested.

Given the uncertainty surrounding quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, the Pittsburgh Steelers are understandably also looking into drafting a quarterback.

Terry Shea is a Bill Walsh disciple, the Hall of Fame San Francisco 49ers coach who believed accuracy was paramount.


Shea, who has coached quarterbacks for decades in the NFL and college, said OU quarterback Sam Bradford is as accurate as he’s ever coached.

"Nobody has been able to match Sam’s accuracy," Shea said. "Sam’s arm strength is really good. Matthew Stafford can really let the ball out of his hand quickly with great velocity. But Sam versus Matthew, Sam can really drive the ball like he did today."

The interchange at Interstates 70 and 435 mixes a nasty brew of congestion and crashes for thousands of area drivers.

It’s blamed for daily traffic backups and delays. It had more crashes last year than any other place in Kansas City.

Starting today, highway crews will go to battle against this traffic monster with a $39 million project to add a third through lane on I-70 at I-435...

...Contractors will be under a tight timeline to get the Brett Bridge done. They will have from the time the Chiefs’ home season is done — possibly in December — until the Royals’ home season starts in 2011 or face $81,000 a day in damages.

Drivers won’t see work on I-70 until early spring of 2011 when the third lane is built.

Work on I-70/I-435 interchange starts today from KC Star

At 5-foot-10, 208 pounds, Thomas has outstanding instincts, range and is a physical tackler. He's also being evaluated as a cornerback prospect by some NFL teams.

Thomas ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds at the NFL scouting combine, also bench pressing 225 pounds 21 times.

Thomas is a consensus All-American selection

Thomas has also been scheduled for several other visits, including the Kansas City Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns and the Tennessee Titans.
