Guinness Gives Chiefs Fans Group Approval to Try For Loudest Stadium Record from KC Star

"We want noise," said Tim VanderPol, one of the Terrorhead Returns founders. "The Raiders, Broncos and Chargers have been discussed. I think we should strike while the poker is hot ... but that's just my opinion. The Chiefs may have a whole different thing, a game they want to do.

"A few of us are leaning toward the Raiders (on Oct. 13). Even though the Raiders bring fans, Chiefs fans love to scream against the Raiders."

Curley Culp: Into The Hall As A Chiefs Or An Oiler? from KC Star

Culp was inducted into the Chiefs Hall of Fame in 2008 and since that day was hopeful he'd eventually join Lanier, Buchanan, Bobby Bell, Emmitt Thomas, Len Dawson, Jan Stenerud, coach Hank Stram and owner Lamar Hunt in Canton one day.

"I'd visit with the other Hall of Famers," Culp said of his annual visits to Chiefs alumni weekends, "and they told me to have faith and stay ready when that call comes."

Culp's induction on Aug. 3 will mark the first Hall of Fame ceremony he has attended.

2013 Offseason Review: San Diego Chargers from The Mothership

The Chargers new head coach Mike McCoy previously served as the offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos after joining the club in 2008 as QBs coach. After helping lead the Broncos to the AFC West title last season, the Chargers are hoping for similar success out of McCoy in 2013.

While McCoy is new to town, the face of the franchise continues to be Chargers QB Philip Rivers, who boasts an 11-4 overall record against Kansas City, with 21 TDs and 16 INTs. However, the Chiefs squad that opens training camp in eight days will be a completely different-looking team than what Rivers and company has seen in the past.

Bill Althaus: Culp Prepares For HOF Induction from The Blue Springs Examiner

We'd fight to see who could get to Buck Buchanan or Ernie Ladd first as the massive defensive linemen walked to the field, because they always let us carry their helmets to the sidelines.

A young defensive lineman, who always greeted us with a smile and a handshake, was a former Arizona State University star who was about to make a name for himself on the 1969 Super Bowl championship team.

His name is Curley Culp, and Aug. 3 he will become the fifth Chiefs defensive player off that lone world championship team to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Memphis Tigers Coaches, Players Have Fun With Women's Clinic from The Memphis Commercial Appeal

Thursday night's event attracted a standing-room-only crowd of more than 150 - mostly women and the U of M coaching staff - who packed tightly into the auditorium.

Almost doubling last year's attendance total, the event was a brisk, lively mix of instruction and panel discussions, including one by former Tiger defensive lineman Dontari Poe, a first-round pick in 2012 by Kansas City Chiefs, and his former teammate, Frank Trotter.

Former Chiefs Lineman Kyle Turley Now Belts Out Country Tunes In Nashville from KC Star

Former Chiefs lineman Kyle Turley and former Packers running back Dorsey Levens are teaming up through a "crowdfunding" website called to raise awareness of concussion issues.

A Chiefs offensive lineman during 2006-07, Turley's approach might be considered the more interesting of the two.

Turley, a two-time NFL All-Pro perhaps best known for his infamous helmet-tossing episode on the Superdome sideline when he played for the Saints in 2001, is about to release a country music album entitled "Skull Shaker."

With No Offer Yet From Dolphins, Leach Remains Open To Possibly Rejoining Ravens from The Baltimore Sun

The three-time Pro Bowl selection remains in talks with Miami, agent Ralph Vitolo said Thursday night. Vitolo said he's still holding dialogue with other teams, and Leach hasn't ruled out the possibly of returning to Baltimore.

The Houston Texans, New York Giants and the Kansas City Chiefs have all been linked to Leach, but the Dolphins are the only team he's visited.

UC Football Standout Ready For NFL Training Camp from WCHS

A former University of Charleston football standout is ready for the Chiefs training camp.

"I've been working on mobility and performance enhancement and I'm ready to roll for training camp," said Jordan Roberts.

Roberts, a 5-foot-11, 218-pound running back from Madison, has been training hard the past nine to ten months getting himself ready for the Kansas City Chiefs' training camp which starts next week. He has been training with those from A-Game Performance in South Charleston.

Finally, Training Camps Are Here; Now Here's What We Want To Know from CBS Sports

The impact of Andy Reid and Alex Smith on Kansas City. The Chiefs had a league-leading 37 turnovers last year, tying them with Philadelphia and the New York Jets. Reid coached the Eagles, so there's no guarantee the spigot gets turned off except ... except they just hired a quarterback who rarely makes mistakes. Smith had 10 turnovers the past two years en route to a 19-5-1 record, and I'll take my chances with that -- especially on a 2-14 team that had six players named to the Pro Bowl.

10 Training Camp Questions from Sports Illustrated

Did Kansas City cure its most pressing ills with the Andy Reid hiring and the Alex Smith trade?

Well, consider how elusive success is for any NFL team that doesn't have the right guys at head coach and quarterback and I think you have your answer. The Chiefs now boast proven talents in those two pivotal spots for the first time in quite a while, and that's not all they have going for them in 2013. What this summer should start bearing out is that Kansas City sending six players to the Pro Bowl last year was no fluke.

Celebrities Secured For Golf Tournament from The St. Joseph News-Press

The Mayor's Pony Express Rider Cup will be held at 11:30 a.m. July 26, in conjunction with the first day of Chiefs' camp. It will be open to the public.

Each team will be composed of two celebrities, who will be teamed up with a Special Olympian.

St. Joseph has secured Ted McKnight, former running back for the Kansas City Chiefs, and Shawn Barber, a former Chiefs linebacker. Kansas City has secured Kevin Uhlich, senior vice president of business operations for the Royals, and Mark Donovan, president of the Chiefs.

NFL Questions And Answers from

What are the chances of Andy Reid turning around the Chiefs? Pretty good, actually. His critics may not want to hear this, but Reid's a very good football coach, as evidenced by his 149 career wins and five conference championship game appearances with the Eagles. He just stayed too long in Philly. The Chiefs aren't nearly as bad as last year's 2-14 record might indicate. They addressed their two biggest offensive needs in the offseason by trading for quarterback Alex Smith and using the first pick in the draft on athletic left tackle Eric Fisher.

Finally Someone In The Media Shows The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Some Love from The Pewter Plank

The tweet seemed to light a fire under the rears of the entire Kansas City fan base as they've attacked Silva for not choosing their beloved Chiefs. Feel free to work through the replies and how Silva responds. It's enjoyable.

Clearly I agree with Silva, but while his arguments lie more his notion that Alex Smith isn't what Chiefs fan's think, I believe the Bucs are more improved than the Chiefs even if Alex Smith can repeat what he did in San Francisco.
