Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 5/13

Wow! Not a lot out there this morning, and I have to go tweet free so I can get to the train station. Too early for me, but the good news is I'll be done early and can belly up to a bar. Here's your Kansas City Chiefs news.

We don’t mean to keep beating on a dead horse. Okay, maybe we do mean to harp on the Chiefs remarkably bad defense against the run during the 2009 season.

And our focus is not so much on what happened last year, but what the Chiefs have and more appropriately haven’t done to fix what was an obvious problem. Teams cannot expect to win enough games to be a contender when they can’t stop the other team’s running game.

There is little under the category of "obvious moves" that Pioli/Haley have done to address the run defense. They’ve put their defensive eggs in the basket of new coordinator Romeo Crennel and a big jump in production and performance from the players that were on the roster during the ‘09 season.

News is slow and my brain is taking the day off but I am going to make a feeble attempt at putting together a post for you guys. I am a big fan of lists so here is a list of 10 things I think are probably true, even if I don’t have any proof that they are.

T.J. Jackson is returning to Bulldog Stadium this year, though this time it will be outside the lines, working with Opelika’s front four.

Jackson was a two-time All-State defensive lineman for the Bulldogs, a first-team All-SEC performer for Auburn University and spent parts of three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons and Kansas City Chiefs.

He’s never coached before. But Blackmon said you wouldn’t know that from seeing him in action.

85.  On paper, the Chiefs are a great Week Two matchup and could give the Browns some great momentum heading into what will be an incredibly tough stretch of their calendar.  Certainly, the record-breaking visions of last year’s KC matchup are not that distant in the minds of Browns Nation.

However, the Chiefs could surprise this year.  With Thomas Jones and Jamal Charles, they could easily feature one of the more dynamic running attacks in the league.  And against a defense probably still trying to find its feet, this could prove dangerous.
