Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 5/20

Good morning! Running behind today so I'm posting what I have now, and will update shortly with the Twitter content [done]. Enjoy your Kansas City Chiefs news!!

Dorsey has heard the talk; he’s not one of those players that says he doesn’t read the papers, or the internet or watch television.

Glenn, have you heard you are supposed to be moving to nose tackle?

"Yeah, I’ve heard that," he said. "People have told me they heard that."

Has anyone in the organization talked to you at any time about moving to nose tackle?

"No, not a word," said Dorsey. "Nobody has said anything about that."

Would you be surprised if they asked you to move there?

"I’ll do whatever they ask me to do," Dorsey said.

So how does all this get started? Well, the guy who opened the door on this story was GM Scott Pioli.

He was asked before the draft about rumors that Dorsey was moving to the nose. Pioli didn’t confirm or deny those rumors, he just talked about the versatility of Dorsey, calling him "a unique player" with the "physical skill and body type to play numerous positions." When asked specifically about nose tackle, Pioli again didn’t say yes or no. "He can do a lot of different things," Pioli said.

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was already having a bad day, having dropped a couple of passes at practice.

His Wednesday got worse with comments made in the issue of ESPN the Magazine scheduled to come out Friday. In it, Bowe talked of Chiefs players arranging for women to meet them at the team hotel when the Chiefs played a game in San Diego in Bowe’s rookie season of 2007...

...The Chiefs had no response to Bowe’s comments, and Bowe could not be reached for comment. The story became public after the media interview period with coach Todd Haley and players concluded.

Bowe’s comments could eventually prove nothing more than a minor distraction for the Chiefs. But they also could cause trouble in the locker room. Haley and general manager Scott Pioli have turned over much of the roster since joining the Chiefs last year, but some players remain from 2007.

One player they haven’t touched is Bowe. The Chiefs have in fact been more patient with Bowe than they have with many other players.

Todd Haley's reality weight-loss show lasted just one season.

A year after focusing on flubber, the Kansas City Chiefs and their fitness-first coach have spent the first week of organized team activities actually working on football-related exercises instead of just exercising.

The Chiefs, it seems, have finally bought into Haley's way of thinking and rallied around their second-year coach.

"There's a different sense in this locker room where we're ready to move forward and ready to worry about football," linebacker Mike Vrabel said Wednesday. "Guys can concentrate on football and try to help us win games."

That wasn't the case a year ago.

The Orlando Predators are proud to announce today the signing of wide receiver Bobby Sippio. Sippio is widely considered the best Arena Football player in the game today having been named First Team All-Arena in his last season of Arena Football.


With the arrival of Sippio the Predators now has arguably the top receiving corps in the AFL. Sippio has previously played Arena Football with the Chicago Rush, Tampa Bay Storm and Dallas Desperados and spent time in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions. He led the Arena Football League with an amazing 53 touchdown receptions during the 2007 campaign with Chicago.

A dozen cars waited in the drive-thru and an equal number of people were inside the store less than two hours after Dunkin' Donuts opened at 7446 Metcalf this morning...

...That about summed it up. But Jack FM and KCMO Talk Radio 710 were both broadcasting live. A man (or woman?) in a donut suit and another dressed as a white cup of hot coffee waved to traffic. Kansas City Chiefs General Manager Scott Pioli surprised customers by appearing in the drive-thru window at 8 a.m. And as police directed traffic, three members of the Overland Park Fire Department waited in line for coffee and donuts.

In January of 1965, a group of American Football League players took a political stand that has mostly been forgotten. Following the 1964 American Football League season, the league scheduled the fourth-annual AFL All-Star Game in New Orleans. The January 16, 1965 contest would have been the prelude to the city getting an American Football League team.

New Orleans was a football hotbed, and both the American Football League and National Football League were taking a close look at the city as a potential expansion site. The AFL apparently won the race to New Orleans, and a game was scheduled at Tulane Stadium. Dave Dixon headed the promotion and persuaded American Football League owners and players that it would be a good city for the match.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was now the law of the land, and New Orleans was going to welcome the AFL All-Stars — which included twenty-two African-American players — with open arms. Segregation and Jim Crow were part of the history books, and the city desperately wanted a professional team. After all, Syracuse had just played in the Sugar Bowl against LSU and had eight African-American players on the team without incident. New Orleans seemed the perfect spot to host both the All-Star Game and a professional football team.

It didn’t turn out that way, according to Abner Haynes, a former Kansas City Chiefs running back. Haynes had been a civil rights pioneer as one of the first two African-Americans to play college football in Texas.

JoshLooney Haley said Dorsey is a DE right now but didn't slam door on NT (Best 11 will play) - Dorsey said that nobody has approached him about a move
kentbabb Dwayne Bowe keeps making mistake after mistake. He's not off to a good start to what I think is a make-or-break yr with him and the Chiefs.

mellinger Dwayne Bowe says that girl was on his lap, but how can we be sure he didn't drop her?

kentbabb Here's the thing: Dwayne Bowe is a nice guy and all, but his judgment is off-the-charts bad. It's going to drive him right out of KC.
