Ecke: The Prognosis For The Eight New Head Coaches In The NFL from

The Skinny: Reid is the only one of the eight newcomers with previous head coaching experience on this level. That's kind of ironic since when he got his start with the Eagles in 1999 he didn't even have experience as a coordinator. He brought a lot of familiar faces with him on offense, but went with a new look on defense. That wasn't a bad idea.

Short-term prognosis: Kansas City was not as bad as a 2-14 team looked last year. They have a good defense and a new quarterback in Alex Smith. Reid, with some breaks, can take them to a wild-card berth.

Quick-Hit Thoughts Around NFL & Pats from ESPN Boston

Another route that the team could explore would be a trade, targeting players who could find themselves buried on a tight end depth chart elsewhere. A few names that come to mind are D.J. Williams of the Packers, Clay Harbor of the Eagles and Tony Moeaki of the Chiefs. It's entirely possible that the Patriots will stand pat at the position with six tight ends already on the roster, but if they decide to pursue other options, one of the aforementioned trio may be available at a modest price.

Nevada Athletics: State Pays Ault, Powers About $500,000 Annually In Retirement from The Reno Gazette Journal

Ault, who officially didn't retire (he called it a resignation on Dec. 28 because he planned to continue to work), is now a consultant for the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs. He also has had some speaking engagements, and he has worked with his Reno-based agent, Bob LaMonte, about a possible book deal that would center on his Pistol offense and how it has affected college football and the NFL.

Those other forms of income, though, are just the cherry on top of the PERS retirement, per an RGJ analysis of public data.

10 Cities That Fail Against A Big Rival from FOX Sports

Poor Kansas City, you can't catch a break - and all too often, your pain is a result of Northern California's gain. The first instance came in 1968, when you lost your Major League Baseball team to Oakland. Then later that year, the Oakland Raiders throttled your Chiefs in the AFL playoffs (though at least you got them back the following season). Then in 1985, your NBA team bolted for Sacramento, and has still, to this day, yet to be replaced. Oh yeah, 1985 - the year of the Royals' last playoff appearance. When it comes to on-field history, there's not much precedent, but the A's did sweep the Royals in their only postseason meeting, in 1981. All told, the baseball team Kansas City lost has won more World Series (four) than the new one has even played in (two). Keep an eye on your BBQ, KC, or else San Fran might take that.
