Good morning! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. We have Bobby Bell, turnovers, and Brady Quinn's long lost brother?!? Enjoy.
Get A Grip: Chiefs Try To Solve Turnover Issues from KC Star
The Chiefs have committed an NFL-high 15 turnovers, no small factor in their 1-3 record. Much of that is on quarterback Matt Cassel, who has thrown seven interceptions.
But the Chiefs have also lost eight fumbles, another league high. Cassel has three of those and the others have been spread around. Jamaal Charles lost two fumbles against San Diego.
Chiefs vs Ravens - Game 5 from The Mothership
Sunday's contest marks the sixth regular season matchup and seventh overall meeting between the Chiefs and Ravens. Kansas City owns a 3-2 advantage in the regular season series, while Baltimore claimed a 30-7 victory in an AFC Wild Card contest on Jan. 9, 2011 at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Chiefs won the fi rst three games between the teams by a combined score of 79-42 with all of the contests being played at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
Around The AFC West: Broncos, Chargers Look Like Two-Team Race from The Denver Post
In those heady, sunny days of training camp, the Chiefs were going to be one of the league's best young teams. And the Raiders were set to emerge from the Al Davis era with a new way of doing things, a new lease on playoff life.
Both may eventually come true, likely just not this time around. A quarter of the way into what will become of the 2012 season and the AFC West "race" has the look of a two-team affair.
AFC West Breakdown: Week 4 from Predominately Orange
Looking Back: The Chiefs are simply laughable at this point. Do they really think that their backups can't play better than Matt Cassel? In the Chiefs' 37-20 loss to the Chargers, Cassel went 24-for-42 (57.1%) for 251 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions. Throw in an additional three turnovers from the running game, and that's how the Chiefs showed up in week four. Jamaal Charles had 92 yards on the ground and a touchdown, but he contributed two of those fumbles. Dwayne Bowe was the only shining star for the Chiefs as he had seven receptions for 108 yards and a score. Back to the drawing board for Romeo Crennel.

Film Study: Looking Back At The Chiefs' Loss vs. The Chargers from The Baltimore Sun
Strategy: On Sunday, it appeared the Chiefs' offensive strategy was to shoot themselves in the foot. They turned the ball over six times, including four times in the first half. Despite falling behind early, they were relatively balanced, giving the ball to speedy running back Jamaal Charles and throwing the ball all over the field, often times to physical wideout Dwayne Bowe. Defensively, the Chiefs used a 3-4 front, did not blitz much and relied on a lot of man coverage. In third-and-long situations, the Chiefs liked to employ five or six defensive backs on the field.
Tuesdays With Everitt from The Boston Globe
Omar Easy is one in a long line of former Everett High football greats.
He played at EHS from 1995-1997 and went on to play fours years at Penn State, before being drafted in the fourth round, 107th overall by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2002 NFL Draft. He played four seasons in the NFL (three for the Chiefs and one in Oakland).
Now, he is back at EHS, getting experience before he takes over a new position at the school this winter.
Exclusive Interview With Bobby Bell, NFL Hall OF Fame Linebacker from Bleacher Report
Over the past half-century, many players spent part of their careers with the franchise, which started out as the Dallas Texans before relocating to Kansas City in 1963.
One of those players was former Super Bowl champion and NFL Hall of Fame linebacker, Bobby Bell. I had a chance to speak to Bell, who played for the Chiefs from 1963-74, and he shared with me some of his favorite moments from his playing years.
He also talked about the impact Lamar Hunt made for the game of football.

Chiefs: Romeo Crennel Leaving Door Open For A Brady Quinn Appearance from CBS Sports
Should the Chiefs see what they have in Quinn?
It might be worth a shot, but it's like choosing between a rusty old Ford pickup and a rusty Chevy. We've seen Quinn in offensive coordinator Brian Daboll's offense before and his numbers are actually worse than Cassel's this season.
Here's Quinn's 2009 season with the Browns with Crennel as his head coach and Daboll as his offensive coordinator compared to Cassel this year.
Ravens Notes: After Short Break, Ravens Return To Practice from The Baltimore Sun
After enduring a tough grind of playing four games in 18 days, the Ravens got back to work Monday following a three-day weekend.
The players are off Tuesday as well, and had a light workout Monday.
"They were here in great spirits, had a good attitude and were excited to go to work," coach John Harbaugh said. "We had a real good day, not a full day, a little more than half a day."
Sterling Edwards And Mike Zegunis Named Chiefs High School Coaches Of The Week from The Mothership

Winnetonka's Sterling Edwards (Missouri) and Blue Valley Northwest's Mike Zegunis (Kansas) each received this honor after a strong performance by their respective team last week.
As a result, both schools will receive a $500 grant towards player health and safety equipment and/or education.
