Good morning! We have a lot of Kansas City Chiefs news for you from across the internet. More season previews, Poe's first start, and the weakening optimism for the upcoming season are all ahead. Enjoy.

"He's making progress," Crennel said. "But he's still that rookie who reverts back to what he knows at times, and he forgets to remember how we want to do it. There was one play in the game, he was in good position on the blocker and ended up jumping off the block ... he thought he could make the play (but) that opened up a hole.

"You've got to point those things out to him and get him to correct it. He's a conscientious student, and he will get it corrected."

Chiefs' Poe Likely To Make First Start On Thursday from KC Star

For the third consecutive year, the Chiefs and Packers will wrap up the preseason against each other with Thursday's matchup at Lambeau Field.

Last season, Kansas City defeated the previously undefeated Packers 19-14 in a Week 15 contest at Arrowhead Stadium in Romeo Crennel's fi rst game after taking over as head coach. The Chiefs pulled ahead on a 46- yard fi eld goal by K Ryan Succop with 3:45 left in the third quarter and never relinquished the lead. Succop converted four fi eld goals on the afternoon and was later named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

"Both guys have good ability, competed and worked very hard," Crennel said of the training camp competition between Quinn and second-year pro Ricky Stanzi. "We went with Quinn because he has more experience and that's the main thing that I feel like will benefit us the most. He's played in the games and has experience."

"Everyone wants to be a starter in this league and play on the field,'' Quinn said. "That's the ultimate time you'd be pretty happy having a title of sorts.''

Even if Quinn wasn't impressed, it was big news for the Chiefs, though not a surprise. Quinn has more experience than his competition, Ricky Stanzi, and outplayed him during the preseason.

The preseason has been a bizarre road for Kansas City, which opened training camp with high expectations but has suddenly begun to feel a bit anxious about playing Atlanta on Sept. 9.

After a thorough whipping of Arizona, injuries started to pile up, and the Chiefs were run out of town by St. Louis. They returned home last week to face the Seahawks and rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, and he ripped apart a defense expected to be one of the NFL's best this year.

It didn't help how quickly the offense kept sending the defense onto the field.

Will the real Kansas City Chiefs kindly stand up?

Are the tenants of Arrowhead Stadium the same moribund franchise that won just 10 times in three seasons from 2007-09, the resurgent juggernaut that made the playoffs with 10 wins under wunderkind Todd Haley in 2010...or the middling bunch that sank back to 7-9 and sent Haley packing last year?

Kansas City Chiefs 2012 Season Preview from FOX News

It's hard to give up 40 points to another NFL team. You really have to work at it. It tends to require an abject level of failure. The kind of game where you allow a punt return for a touchdown, have an interception returned for a touchdown, and help a rookie quarterback be named the regular season starter for another team after leading scoring drives on the first six possessions.

This was the Friday-night preseason game at Arrowhead between the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks.

The Kansas City Chiefs Currently Require The Suspension Of Disbelief from The Pitch

On paper, the Chiefs appear ready for a 12-win season - that is, on paper and healthy. With the fact that Daboll is installing a new offensive scheme, I expect the defense to rule the day early in the season as Cassel and the offense adjust to the new style of play.

A 10 - 6 record with a spot in the playoffs is a more likely target for the Chiefs this season - a scenario I'm sure Crennel and company will gladly accept.

Bowe re-joined the Kansas City Chiefs two weeks ago, and has looked rusty since coming back to the field. He lined up as a backup in the Chiefs' recent preseason game, and did not look like his usual self. Haley once buried Bowe on the depth chart when the two men were together in Kansas City.

Kansas City Chiefs - Their defense has been awful and their defensive players keep getting injured. You have to really go out of your way to get hurt while not hitting anyone. PANIC.

Should Your NFL Team Panic Or Celebrate? from ESPN

If we have learned one thing, it is that these ACL injuries in RBs and WRs take two years to recover from fully. Charles has looked great, but Hillis is where I see the real fantasy terror occurring, plus you can get him four rounds later than Charles.

He's a receiving threat out of the backfield and an absolutely one of a kind physical, gifted runner. They will utilize Charles, but they will control the ball with Hillis. The preseason has showed us this so far, and it is hard to anticipate it changing drastically. Hillis represents the much greater value of the running back tandem in Kansas City.
