Good morning Chiefs fans! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. There's not much out there this morning, but look for the CBA talk to pick up in advance of the April 6th hearing on Brady vs. the NFL. Enjoy.
Listen, when it came to the first round, the Chiefs under Peterson had their stinkers, the biggest being University of Michigan OT Trezelle Jenkins in 1995. Jenkins was a complete bust, appearing in nine games over three seasons. He started the '97 season opener, was benched and release two weeks later. He never played another regular season game in professional football.
But over 20 drafts, Peterson was correct far more than he was wrong when it came to the first round. One of those choices is already in the Pro Football Hall of Fame (OLB Derrick Thomas/1989.) There's another that will be there eventually (TE Tony Gonzalez/1997.)

Before the season Haley told the players that nobody cared. Haley told his men they were in it together.
The term "nobody" caught my attention. The nobodies were the group Haley referred to as the doubters. The outsiders like the media, Broncos, Chargers and Raiders - but initially Haley might have included the fan.
Don't take it personal, but at first, the only ones Haley cared about were the "right 53." Before Haley could convince the 12th man, he had to change the culture of the team.
