Good morning! A light day for Chiefs-centric stories. Here is your Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy.
Carl Peterson, former president of the Kansas City Chiefs, along with LSU Coach Les Miles, longtime high school coach Mickey Roussel of the Riverside Academy Rebels, and Ron Brocato, sports editor of the Clarion-Herald will be honored for their contributions to football by The Touchdown Club of New Orleans at a banquet Feb. 25, the club announced Wednesday.
In the real world of everyday NFL football, it has been the cause of a lot of study and tons of speculation, not to mention that half the league is trying to copy it.
As a result, a great number of employees have been hired away from the New England Patriots but, none, not a single player, head coach or executive, has been able to reproduce the so-called magic of the Patriot Way, elsewhere. Zero Super Bowl wins. Zero Super Bowl appearances.
Because there are so many ex-Patriot coaches, players and executives strewn across the league who have faltered... the Patriot Way should be called... the Patriot Waste.

New England Patriots veteran guard Brian Waters doesn't want your sympathy...
...But Waters, like many offensive linemen, does not want to be the story during Super Bowl week.
"I hope not, because this is so much about this team," Waters said. "It's less about me and it's more about this team, it's unbelievable. That's one thing I really appreciate here. ... So I hope it's not a sentimental thing with me. I really don't."

Rozelle, for his part, hated the name. He thought it lacked sophistication. So while the media latched on to the name "Super Bowl" almost immediately, it wasn't until Super Bowl III that the NFL used the term Super Bowl officially, putting the phrase on the cover of the game program.
The affectation of tacking on a roman numeral was Hunt's slightly cheeky response to Rozelle's fastidiousness. It wasn't until Super Bowl V that the roman numeral appeared on the ticket.
