Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 5/21

Good morning! Obviously it's hard to focus on football after events like what occurred in Moore, OK yesterday. I know we have a lot of readers from the Sooner State and my thoughts are with you (I grew up in Enid). If anyone is looking to assist it sounds like the best way is to donate to The American Red Cross or other charity. Now on to things that don't really matter: Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news.


65 TPT Videos Up For National Awards Voted By Fans from The Mothership

Four original video productions from the 65TPT crew, produced during the 2012 season, are up for People's Telly Awards. The public picks the winner of each video category, based off the amount of "thumbs up" votes submitted on YouTube.

So, Chiefs fans, don't miss the chance to voice your opinion about the epic stories found within the Chiefs Kingdom. We hope you enjoy all four!

Videos up for nominations this year include.....

Some Praise For Tyson Jackson And Dontari Poe From A Chiefs Newcomer from KC Star

So they will apparently go into the season with DeVito and Tyson Jackson at end and Dontari Poe as the nose tackle in their regular defense, with Poe and Jackson as the primary line rushers on passing downs.

While that prospect won't necessarily excite many Chiefs fans, perhaps Dorsey and Reid have been seeing the same things at practice that DeVito has. He compared Poe to Kris Jenkins, a former teammate of DeVito's with the Jets who went to four Pro Bowl games.

Chiefs WRs Improving Under Coach Culley from The Mothership

I've noticed on several occasions at practice that if coach Culley sees a player complete the drill but not as it should be done, he calls the WR back to immediately do the drill again, only better.

"If you're not doing the drill right, it makes no sense to go and move on; if you want to get it right, you have to go back," McCluster said of Culley's philosophy.

Coach Culley commands the respect from his new players because he has coached among the league's top wide receivers, including Pro Bowlers, Terrell Owens and DeSean Jackson.

Observations From Week One Of Chiefs' Offseason Workouts from KC Star

Perhaps deferring to the veteran, the Chiefs are using Ricky Stanzi as their third quarterback while rookie Tyler Bray is getting few snaps as the fourth quarterback. Hard to say if that will change any time soon, but Bray has better ability to make all the necessary throws than Stanzi does. While the Chiefs - with Smith as their starter and Chase Daniel as the top reserve - need to be in no hurry to develop Bray, he has already displayed enough skills to earn more work.

Alex Smith Runs Pistol At Kansas City Chiefs Workouts from

The Chiefs made a head-scratching move when they recently named Brad Childress their "Spread Game Analyst." The Ault hire is more of a coup and suggests that Andy Reid is willing to step outside his beloved West Coast offense to help grow the attack. If Smith can make it work, running an offense the 49ers deemed him ill-suited for would make for a juicy subplot in 2013.

Still, too much talk of the pistol focuses on the quarterback: The real winner here is running backJamaal Charles.

NJSIAA Golf: Moorestown's Pederson Second In Group 3 from

With three years to improve, Pederson's opponents may have expressed a collective sigh of relief knowing his days in New Jersey are winding down. Doug Pederson, Josh's father, recently was named offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs. The family is relocating after the school year.

CMU's Eric Fisher Inspires T-Shirts As Top NFL Draft Pick from MLive

Eric Fisher joined an elite fraternity when he was selected with the No.1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Now he's got the merchandise to prove it.

2013 NFL Wins Totals Picks from ESPN (Insider Article)

There was a point last NFL season, it was after Week 4 in fact, that we all thought the Atlanta Falcons were the best team in the NFL. It's true. I looked it up. They had started the season beating up on Kansas City 40-24 at Arrowhead. And this was back when everyone -- fans, pundits, Matt Cassel's family -- all believed that the Chiefs were loaded with so much talent they'd shimmy to the playoffs.

Richardson Learning To Play In NFL from The Natchez Democrat

Rico Richardson is focused on one thing - learning his new team's playbook.

The former Natchez High School and Jackson State standout, who signed a free agent deal with the Kansas City Chiefs shortly after this past NFL draft, said things are much different than they were in college.

"The playbook is super-huge," Richardson said. "It's very different. In college, we ran the spread offense, whereas (Chiefs head coach Andy) Reid likes to run the West Coast (offense). There's much more to it."
