Good morning! A light day for Kansas City Chiefs news, but it is interesting. Keep reading to see what Pioli has to say about head coach Todd Haley. We're also starting to see some stories from The Denver Post about this weeks game. Enjoy.

Echoing comments made recently by Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt, Pioli also said he has a good relationship with Haley.

"I think it's a good working relationship. I really do," Pioli said. "We're both focused on the same thing, which is winning football games."

Asked whether they work well enough together to allow the Chiefs to win a Super Bowl, Pioli said yes.

Arrowhead was not a difficult place for an opponent to play Sunday afternoon. The crowd was waiting for something positive to happen. The Chiefs just didn't give the home crowd much to cheer about.

Aside from game's opening possessions where Kansas City put together a methodical 14-play scoring drive and Miami followed with a punt, the Dolphins controlled the contest.

No matter how much revenue a naming-rights deal might bring the Chiefs or Royals, it will come with an emotional price.

Arrowhead is a sacred name in Kansas City, one forever linked to the late Lamar Hunt, founder of the Chiefs. The former Royals Stadium was named for the late Ewing Kauffman, a revered man in Kansas City who resisted attempts to name the park in his honor while he was alive.

Broncos' Eyes On Kansas City Chiefs from The Denver Post

The most significant aspect in the Broncos' win Sunday in Oakland was how the coaching staff came up with a way to best utilize Tebow's talents. For the past year-and-a-half, the Broncos tried to fit Tebow into the pro-style offense from the pocket.

The coaching staff - specifically, head coach John Fox, offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, quarterbacks coach Adam Gase and running backs coach Eric Studesville (who, don't forget, ushered in the Tebow era last year as interim head coach) - decided, "You know what? Tebow is a runner. Let him run."
