An Unsettling Pattern: Chiefs Become Chargers Who Then Own The Chiefs from FS Kansas City
There is no such thing as a truly evil ex-Chief, unless that ex-Chief is a Charger -- in which case, all bets are freaking off.

Chiefs Mailbag: Distribution Of Backfield Carries from Chiefs Spin
Two-time All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles remains the top backfield option. However, it wouldn't surprise if second-year pro Knile Davis, who is the clear No. 2 running back, sees more action in a complementary role.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid indicated that could be the case on at least two separate occasions during the offseason.
"Knile was a rookie and he was learning every week and getting better every week," Reid said on Feb. 20 at the NFL Scouting Combine. "As the season went on, we were able to give him the ball a little bit more. I think coming into this season, we'll be able to mix it up a little bit better than what we did early in the season last year."
Rookie Review: OL Zach Fulton from ESPN
Fulton's readiness to play, even as a backup, is difficult to gauge because linemen need to be in pads in order to make the best evaluation. But it's clear the Chiefs think he might be ready to make an immediate contribution. He's a strong contender to be the starter at right guard.
Hard Work Pays Off from The Andalusia Star-News
The opportunity to stay and work on getting back to 100 percent was just too appealing for Andalusia native and Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Nico Johnson.
Since the start of the offseason, Johnson has stayed in Kansas City and worked on getting better. During the preseason of his first year, Johnson suffered an ankle injury that set him back a bit.
"It's going well," he said about his summer. "I stayed out there in KC (Kansas City) during the offseason because I got injured last year (during the preseason). I just wanted to get my body back to where I'm comfortable and playing fast."
As controversy surrounding the Washington Redskins' name shines a light on Kansas City's professional football team, many Kansas Citians are sticking by the Chiefs.
The Tomahawk Chop, a popular fan ritual at games, is another matter, however.
Leaving A Lasing Message from The Robesonian
Friday wrapped up Brill's ninth-annual football camp, which not only taught kids the game's fundamental skills but delivered a bigger message he hopes will resonate.
"The work on the field is very, very important," Hutch Eckerson, a Lumberton native who most recently played for the Kansas City Chiefs, said. "But you always have to think about your school work. Good grades really do matter and will put you so far ahead of everybody else."
Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop will be in attendance, as well as film stars Michael Jai White, Fred "The Hammer" Williamson and world professional announcer, "Mr. Larry Legend," who will speak on the problem of bullying and importance of character building.
Attendees will have a chance to meet and take photos with the special guests film stars including White, who is known for his various performances in films such as "Spawn" and "Tyler Perry's For Better or For Worse," and Williamson, who has black belts in various karate forms and played professional football for the Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, Pittsburgh Steelers. Williamson later went on to have a career in acting.
