Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 6/23

New, comments

Good morning! We have some Kansas City Chiefs news for you this morning. Plenty to read, and I am having a tough time deciding what my favorite link is. It's between the Chiefs telling St. Joe to be ready for camp, and reliving a(nother) last second win over the Raiders. Thoughts?

Oakland at Kansas City: November 6, 2005

G.U.T.S. - that was the theme of this showdown with Oakland.

Grieving QB Trent Green had buried his 58-year old father earlier in the week and both the Chiefs and Raiders were battered with injuries. It was an emotional day that sparked emotional late-game decisions and yet another classic finish between the two bitter rivals.

The question comes all the time from people outside the circle of pro football – how can I get into the NFL?

It comes from people trying to find a spot in the front office, or from marginal college athletes who think it’s only a matter of time before some team recognizes their skills. It comes from folks trying to get into the personnel department as a scout, or on the coaching staff.

All I can do is repeat bromides that are as old as the hills – "It’s all about who you know" or "right place at the right time" and "be willing to start at ground level."

Players and owners may be headed toward a long-awaited settlement on the labor front, so it can’t hurt to review the list of Chiefs potential free agents again. There are a bunch of them, 24 players without a contract for 2011...

...Here are my suggestions from February for what the Chiefs should do with these 24 players.

"65 toss power trap, boys!" he yelled from the sidelines. The call was immortalized in what NFL Films icon, Steve Sabol called ‘The greatest wiring in Films history’. Thanks to NFL Films wiring Stram before the game, the triumphant call is heard again and again every time Post Season football rolls around.

The Chiefs will visit Forest Park Baptist Church, 730 S. Range Line Road, one of four SEMA points of distribution in the area. Players, coaches and executives will sign autographs and interact with community members.

This session will begin at approximately 1:30 p.m. and will include the Chiefs Fan Zone, featuring inflatables and games for kids ages 15 and under.

For the last three years the National Sports Center for the Disabled has done a "mini-camp" with the Kansas City Chiefs. My two sons have enjoyed these events — especially being around the players...

...Only this year, the event was canceled because of the lockout.

A recent conversation between MWSU Athletic Director Dave Williams and Chiefs President Mark Donovan is giving the university the green light to prepare for Chiefs Camp, despite an NFL work stoppage.

Mr. Irrelevant met the Nigerian Nightmare for the first time. Cheta Ozougwu was just happy to hear his name pronounced correctly by someone other than his Nigerian parents.

Christian Okoye said "oh-ZOO-goo" just once. To the former running back for the Kansas City Chiefs, Ozougwu was still Mr. Irrelevant, the last player picked in theNFL Draft.

I was starting to wonder whether any Texas Longhorns were going to show up on the NFL Network's excellent 10-week Top 100 Players of 2011 series, based on a survey of the league's players. That is, until Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles checked in at No. 33 on Sunday.
