It's baaaaaaaaaaaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaaack! Football, that is. Not that anyone around here noticed, but the Kansas City Chiefs did just happen to kick off their 2012 preseason with a win over the A...

Had a blast at an all-day bluesfest here in Denver yesterday, with better-than-front-row seats - though I rarely sat down - as side stage security. Headlin acts included Trampled Under Foot from...

No news isn't necessarily good news, it seems ... at least not when it comes to Dwayne Bowe and the Chiefs. The hours slowly count down to the Monday 4 PM deadline to sign, and not a word, one way...

Broncos Thin at LB for 2012


Denver Post story about the Broncos being thin and in a tight spot at LB this seasn with DJ Williams being suspended for substance abuse violations (twice) and just a very thin group left after Von Miller With Williams out of the mix, the Broncos have only three linebackers with significant playing experience: Woodyard, Mays and strongside linebacker Von Miller, the reigning defensive rookie of the year. Behind them are second-year players Nate Irving (middle linebacker) and Mike Mohamed (strongside linebacker), sixth-round draft pick Danny Trevathan and undrafted rookies Steven Johnson, Jerry Franklin and Elliot Coffey. this is like Adam Teicher doing a report that says the Chiefs are thin at the QB position ... interesting read, and should have Chiefs fans grinning about possibilities in 2012

Another day, and another day closer to Opening Kickoff of 2012. It's only early July and we still have to wait months for football? Oh, noes! Open thread to the rescue! So, who's actually...

YAY! another "feel good" story about an NFL player doing something positive ... touching gesture by the Lions' QB

Is Stanzi Our Gabbert?


Alfie Crow over at SBNation Tampa bay did a bit on how Blaine Gabbert, despite his horrible 2011 season, absolutely has to be the starting QB for the Jags in 2012 and moving forward. Part of his argument is the question: "Is Chad Henne going to get you to the NFL playoffs?" Should we (should or will Pioli) ask the same question of Cassel (vs Stanzi)? Class, discuss!

Citizens Fund Stadium But Blackout Rule Persists - The Realities of the NFL


Roger Chamberlain walked off the floor of the Minnesota state senate having just watched as taxpayers went on the hook for an estimated $1 billion (at least) over 30 years for the construction, upkeep and debt service on a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings. He could only laugh in frustration. "What the NFL wants," the republican state senator said, "the NFL gets." All Chamberlain wanted was to assure that since so much taxpayer money was being handed over, those same taxpayers would be guaranteed local broadcasts of all Viking games no matter if the stadium was sold out. In effect, he wanted to make the NFL's blackout rule illegal in Minnesota. sounds like a reasonable request to me, and of course a request denied ... read more at link location

12 Angry Men Or The Dirty Dozen, whatever you want to call them, they are 12 football players who will be on the field for the 2012 Chiefs (sometimes 4-5 at a time) who were NOT on the field when the Chiefs were vying for a division title late last December. Read this list: Eric Berry, Jamaal Charles, Dontari Poe, Eric Winston, Tony Moeaki, Peyton Hillis, Kevin Boss, DaQuan Menzie, Brandon Siler, Cyrus Gray, Devon Wylie, Jeff Allen Notice no mention of Routt (cause Carr left) or QB, though not having Palko is worth a lot. Oh yeah, still going to add vet FAs (hopefully backup C, S, MLB, right?) This is just the stuff I think about during staff meetings @ work... from the Fanposts by i like the chiefs

Side by side, entire first round showing both sets of picks ... how did the Chiefs do? No real surprises here ... one has Kuechly the other has DeCastro (which means it will probably be someone else)

In keeping with Texas Chief's great post last night about good news regarding athletes, I ran across this article and thought I'd share it ... Bo and a few other high profile athletes (Ken Griffey, JR and Scottie Pippin, among others) do the right thing to help out people who need help the most good news is always a good thing :-)

Kirk Cousins, QB, Michigan State 4. Marvin McNutt, WR, Iowa 5. Nick Jean-Baptiste, DT/NT, Baylor 6. Isaiah Frey, CB, Nevada 7. James Hanna, TE, Oklahoma 8. Brandon Bolden, RB, Ole Miss So there you go Chiefs fans. This who I think the Chiefs will draft in this years 2012 NFL draft. Comment to tell me what you think of the draft and make suggestions in your comments. from the Fanposts by Victor Armstrong

Weeden will get drafted before Tannehill Here is my CRAZY, UNBELIEVABLE prediction for the 2012 NFL Draft Weeden will get drafted as the 3rd QB off the board before Tannehill. My reasoning is simple actually. Who ever drafts the 3rd QB off the board will be reaching so why reach for a player unless he can help you right away? Tannehill by all accounts does not have the experience to start right away in the NFL, but Weeden is a much more mature, pro ready quarter back that can come in and start this year. The only knock against him is his age which in this case can also be considered a strength. Flame away from the Fanposts by Migidee
