Twitter Tuesday: Royals Trades, Chiefs Boom And Bust, College Football from KC Star

@ EvanFahrbach if Gordon is the biggest BA of the Royals, who is for the Chiefs? Tamba? JC? # TwitterTuesday

My sense is that Jamaal Charles is the consensus pick as the Chiefs best player, and no disrespect to him, but I actually think the answer is Justin Houston, and I have a suspicion (hope?) we see more of that in Bob Sutton's defense than we did Romeo Crennel's. There was actually grumbling in the locker room last year about the coaching staff's misuse of Houston, of putting him in too much coverage and not enough blitzes.

Why Kansas City Chiefs' Jon Asamoah Is NFL's Most Underrated Guard from Bleacher Report

If Asamoah is able to put up another season like we've seen from him recently, combined with any kind of success from the Chiefs, there's no reason to believe he won't break out and get recognition on the national level.

He's not on the level with the best guards in the NFL right now, but he's just now entering his fourth year, only his third as a starter, and there's reason to believe that he could be even better in Andy Reid's offense in Kansas City.

Eleven Cases Where Extension Can Be Best For Player And Team from CBS Sports

11. OG Jon Asamoah, Kansas City Chiefs: Guards on bad teams like the Chiefs fly under the radar for fans but not pro personnel directors. In his 31 starts since being drafted in 2010, Asamoah has given up just five sacks and he's a solid power run blocker. When Andy Reid was in Philadelphia he locked up players like this early in their careers. Big Jon has one year left at $1.32 million and the Chiefs have some cap space.

Concerning The Chiefs' Defense from Arrowhead Addict

Sutton's service time as a defensive coordinator has been marked by mediocrity. His defenses, for all intents and purposes, have been little more than serviceable. It's fair to note that the Jets' personnel was never really suited to the 3-4 though. Given that information, it's tough to know how much of the mediocrity Sutton is really responsible for.

Is there any reason to believe he'll be the answer in Kansas City? This is arguably the most talented bunch of defensive players he's ever coached, but will that be enough to make for significant improvement? Can this football team avoid another season like 2012 where they were the 20th-ranked total defense and 25th-ranked scoring defense in the league? I'd venture to guess that few are convinced yet.

Some Advice For Athletes Courting The Moody Beast That Is Twitter from KC Star

Guthrie is the best local professional sports presence on Twitter - Sporting Kansas City CEO Robb Heineman and Chiefs lineman Geoff Schwartz are also good - but there's a lot of room for improvement.

Twitter should be as simple as what Sporting tells its players - re-read before you post something and if you're not sure, don't post it - but it clearly is not.

Develpoing Young Minds Is A Family Affair For NFL Brothers from The Clayton News Daily

"If a big brother does the right thing, the little brother will follow," he said.

It can be said Johnson's younger brother, Derrick, is the product of that philosophy as a star NFL linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs.

"My brother has been a big role model in my life since I was a kid," said Derrick Johnson, a 30-year-old two-time Pro Bowl selection. "He paved the way for me to be the kind of player I am today."

The Cowboys And The Art Of The Practice Squad from Blogging The Boys

In checking a few details for my last post, I looked at the original practice squad coming out of the 2012 training camp. Just to refresh your memory, here are the names:

WR Danny Coale, LB Orie Lemon, RB Lance Dunbar, RB Jamize Olawale, DT Robert Callaway, DE Ben Bass, WR Tim Benford and G Ronald Leary.

That is a pretty good list of names for a bunch of "also-rans". Callaway was cut this year after being called up in 2012 after Josh Brent was arrested. He had knee surgery which probably impacted the decision. Lemon is with the Kansas City Chiefs trying to make their team, and Olawale is doing the same with the Oakland Raiders. The other five are still with Dallas, and all have a shot to make the team.

Carol City's King Colosus: "There's A Million Trayvons" from The Miami New Times

Who you working with?
I'm doing my own music videos, and ones for other artists, a couple corporate clients like SAE, The School For Audio Engineering, Thomas Jones who was running back for the Kansas City Chiefs. He's got a record label, Independently Major Entertainment.

What'd you do for him?

Music video for his artist Blow. We just put his video on Worldstar and that shit had 8 million views in 2 days. That was a real good thing.

Punt Or Pass? from The Macomb Daily

Pitts is silent on what distinguishes the franchise names Braves, Indians, Blackhawks, Crackers, Yankees, etc. from Redskins or why Warpaint is still the mascot of the Kansas City Chiefs. More importantly, as a racially charged term Redskin has a more complex history than Pitts suggests. Part of that history relates to pigmentation and self adornment. The more serious part relates to the monetary value of an individual's scalp, a bounty, and its prestige value, a trophy of war.
