Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 7/4

New, comments

Happy Independence Day! Quick question: Do people in Lee's Summit or Blue Springs feel sad they don't have their own day? Just curious. Anyway, here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Have a great holiday and be safe.

I'm pretty sure I posted this last year, but I love it too much to not do that again. Here is the link to Marvin Gaye's National Anthem from the 1983 NBA All-Star Game. I'm pretty conservative when it come to the way I like the anthem performed, but man is this awesome.

While there aren’t any camps at FAU this weekend, next weekend there will be a large 7-on-7 tournament with a distinct local flavor.

Several NFL players who are from area high schools, including Brandon Flowers, who played at Atlantic High School before continuing his career with Virginia Tech and the Kansas City Chiefs, will be holding their big charity weekend on July 7-10 including an impressive 7-on-7 tournament.

Over at Sports Illustrated, today's MMQB is by guest writer 1st Sgt. Mike McGuire. It has nothing to do with the Chiefs and everything to do with why this day is important.

The Week Ahead from KC Star

People in the News from The Philadelphia Inquirer

Understand who Matt Cassel is and you understand who the Chiefs are.  More than every other player in KC, his weaknesses are the team’s weaknesses, and the team’s potential for greatness depends on his.  Yes, there are coaching schemes, and there are teammates.  But the most skilled teams fail year and year in leiu of the teams whose QBs carry them the best.
