Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 7/16

Good Morning, AP! A quick Arrowheadlines today. I'm out the door so I can get to the airport. Enjoy your Kansas City Chiefs news!

The 2010 NFL Supplemental Draft came through and ultimately delivered the goods in the form of the two most-coveted players available.

First, let’s start with a familiar name, former Brigham Young RB Harvey Unga. And yes, so much for the Chiefs’ interest in him. Whether scared by additional revelations in Unga’s record, or simply wary of investing a future draft choice, the Red and Gold front office didn’t even put a bid on him.

Therefore, the all-time rushing leader in BYU history ended up being selected by the Chicago Bears. The cost? A seventh-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

According to some sources the Chiefs are headed for another long season of embarrassing losses, while others claim Kansas City is on the verge of breaking into the middle group of teams in the league.

With training camp starting in a couple of weeks, the truth is that no one knows exactly what the season holds, not even Scott Pioli or Todd Haley.

Even so, I believe there are four major factors that will have an enormous impact on Chiefs win total this year.

The New Arrowhead Stadium will debut at the end of August when the Chiefs host Philadelphia in a pre-season game.

Remaining within the stadium shell are memories of the hundreds of games that have been played there since the summer of 1972.

Today, it’s the longest pass receptions in Arrowhead Stadium history.

A professional football player dropped by a Pasadena high school Thursday to encourage student athletes to pursue their dreams.

Kansas City Chiefs safety Reshard Langford met with several dozen members of the various sports teams of Blair IB High School.

Langford encouraged them to work their hardest and achieve their goals - not only in sports but in school and their daily lives.

"Life is about adversity and knowing how to get over it - staying confident in yourself," he told them.

Kansas City Chiefs

Even though they’ve averaged only 3 wins a year over the last three seasons, many people are picking the Kansas City Chiefs to be this year’s surprise success. The addition of Charlie Weis and Romeo Crennel as offensive and defensive coordinators should help the team, but are they really playoff ready?

...Featured speakers at the event include ESPN analyst and former Pittsburgh Steeler Merril Hoge, ESPN analyst and former Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Todd Blackledge, and Hall of Famers Mike Haynes and Dave Robinson.


Chiefs: running back. Thomas Jones will turn 32 in August but is coming off seasons in which he rushed for 1,312 and 1,402 yards for the Jets. Jamaal Charles, 23, broke out when he became the team's feature back in the second half of last season. They figure to share most of the rushing load in coach Todd Haley's second season, but there are several other players who will try to get into the mix.

That group includes Kolby Smith, rookie Dexter McCluster, Jackie Battle and Kestahn Moore, who was picked up late in the season. "Between Charles, Jones, McCluster and however all this plays out," Haley said, "we ought to have a pretty talented backfield."
