Chiefs Unplugged: Head Coach Andy Reid from The Mothership
Q: What do you need to work on to get better next season?
REID: "We need to keep growing. We have to do a better job of coaching to take it to that next level. (We need to) continue to challenge and teach. Those are important things. I thought we were headed in the right direction as the season (went on), kind of after the bye week; those are kind of the primary things."
2014 NFL Draft: Kansas City Chiefs Spotlight from CBS Sports
The Kansas City Chiefs' investment in offensive tackle Eric Fisher with the No. 1 overall selection a year ago was hailed as a solution to a troublesome offensive line. And given the success quarterback Alex Smith, superstar Jamaal Charles and an opportunistic defense had in helping head coach Andy Reid whisk the Chiefs back into the playoffs in his first year in town, the move appeared to pay off.
The loss of three starters -- including Pro Bowl left tackle Branden Albert -- to free agency, however, threaten to mitigate whatever gains Kansas City made up front a year ago.
Teams Still Have Openings To Fill from The Boston Globe
6. Kansas City wide receiver/tight end - If the Chiefs want to make more noise in the AFC, they have to give Alex Smith more targets in the passing game. They really don't have much after Dwayne Bowe. Donnie Avery is a weak No. 2, A.J. Jenkinsis close to being labeled a bust, Dexter McCluster left in free agency, and Anthony Fasano is a slow tight end. The Chiefs are another team that should use this draft to load up on offensive skill players.

Good Stuff On A Beautiful Day from KRCG
There were 20 or so former Tigers on hand, including quarterback Chase Daniel, who's entering his second season with the Kansas City Chiefs after spending four seasons with the New Orleans Saints.
The Chiefs made the playoffs last year for just the second time in seven years, but they still haven't won a playoff game since 1993 --- a string of seven straight losses, an NFL record.
"We start on Monday getting back to work ... we're just taking a one step at a time, one day at a time, approach," Daniel said. "We're excited about the opportunity at hand.
Dear NFL: Do Not Bet Against A Dreiling from The Hutchinson News
Which brings me to my final point - do not bet against a Dreiling.
When Randy took over as coach at Hutchinson High, the team was, to be frank, terrible. When he resigned after this past season, he left with seven state titles. Expect more of the state as he takes over at Aquinas.
Nate was part of that tradition at Hutchinson, and he continued to shine at Pitt State.
I would not pass on Nate Dreiling. He says playing for the Chiefs or Cowboys would be awesome, but he is simply looking for one opportunity.
