Sean Smith Signed by Chiefs to 3 Year Deal Worth $18 Million
This move could have possibly been a reaction to the free agency movement of the Denver Broncos, who signed an amazing deal with star wide receiver and the last great white hope at his position Wes Welker this week. With Peyton Manning throwing the ball to Wes Welker, every team in the AFC West had better stock up at the cornerback and safety positions.
NFL experts have been impressed with The Kansas City Chiefs free agency moves thus far, and most say that the Chiefs got Sean Smith for a great price, one that was much lower than he was hoping for at the beginning of free agency. Sean Smith is a large cornerback who could develop into an elite player. He is almost a sure start opposite cornerback Brandon Flowers. Smith can also play wide receiver and return kickoffs.

Chiefs Draft Pick 2013 - Lose Ground With Win
Did anyone in the Chiefs head office pay attention to what the Indianapolis Colts did last season? In 2011, the Indianapolis Colts flagrantly and intentionally threw nearly every game in order to get the first pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. This proved to be a stoke of genius as the Colts now hold an 8-4 record and are headed for the Playoffs. The Chiefs, like the Colts in 2011, are in desperate need of a franchise quarterback, and by carelessly winning today they have narrowed their chances of landing that valuable first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Everyone knows that the Colts blatantly threw their 2011 season purposely to attain the first round draft pick in 2012. The media turned a blind eye to it, the fans didn't mention it or throw a fit and protest the team, and look where the Colts are now. Both the Colts management and their fans were intelligent enough to understand exactly what the team needed to do, and they all kept very quiet as they lost almost every game of the 2011 season. This is the difference between a smart football city and a slow, non forward-thinking football city. Kansas City is completely clueless in regards to what it will take to rebuild a struggling football team. Winning 2 or 3 games at this point serves absolutely NO PURPOSE and the team would be better served by losing their remaining games and attaining the first pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.
If the genius of what the Colts did in 2011 isn't enough proof of this fact, then Chiefs management and fans alike are not looking at the big picture. What did the Chiefs possibly gain by winning this pointless game today? We can tell you what they lost; valuable positioning in the 2013 NFL Draft. Winning games at this point is simply ridiculous as the only thing that has any meaning for the dismal Kansas City Chiefs is the possibility of a bright future. With each meaningless win in 2012, the Chiefs lose footing on building a better franchise in 2013 through the highest of draft picks.

Chiefs Release First Depth Chart
The biggest surprise may be at nose tackle, where journeyman Anthony Toribio is listed as the starter over first round pick Dontari Poe. Toribio has had a terrific camp, and Poe is still learning the ropes, so perhaps this is simply a motivational tool for Poe. Another interesting note is that Steve Breaston is listed as a starting receiver. Dwayne Bowe is still in the midst of a holdout, which means Breaston is the de facto starter opposite of second-year man Jonathan Baldwin. Also, despite a reputation of being one of the most dynamic running backs in football, this is the first Chiefs depth chart that actually features Jamaal Charles in the starter’s role.
While most expected Brady Quinn to win the job as Matt Cassel’s backup, he has been in a battle with Ricky Stanzi for the position. The first chart lists Quinn ahead of Stanzi, while rookie Alex Tanney is the fourth quarterback on the roster. It is hard to imagine the Chiefs keeping four healthy QBs when the season starts, which means Tanney will have to beat out Stanzi if he wants to avoid a spot on the practice squad.
The first unofficial depth chart is below. The starters are listed first.
WR: Steve Breaston, Dexter McCluster, Josh Bellamy, Devon Wylie, Aaron Weaver, Zeke Markshausen
LT: Branden Albert, Donald Stephenson
LG: Ryan Lilja, Jeff Allen, Rich Ranglin
C: Rodney Hudson, Lucas Patterson, Rob Bruggeman, Cam Holland
RG: Jon Asamoah, Darryl Harris, Justin Cheadle
RT: Eric Winston, David Mims, Ray Willis
TE: Kevin Boss, Tony Moeaki, Steve Maneri, Jake O'Connell, Tim Biere
WR: Jon Baldwin, Terrance Copper, Jamar Newsome, Jeremy Horne, Brandon Kinnie, Junior Hemingway,
QB: Matt Cassel, Brady Quinn, Ricky Stanzi, Alex Tanney
FB: Shane Bannon, Patrick DiMarco
RB: Jamaal Charles, Peyton Hillis, Shaun Draughn, Cyrus Gray, Nate Eachus
RDE: Glenn Dorsey, Amon Gordon, Brandon Bair, Ethan Johnson
NT: Anthony Toribio, Dontari Poe, Jerrell Powe

Chiefs Franchise Tag Bowe - Kansas City Chiefs News
After an extremely lackluster 2011 Chiefs season, Dwayne Bowe put up a lukewarm 81 receptions for a measly 5 touchdowns - yikes! That's what the Chiefs call franchise tag material? Wow, we must be worse off than we thought. This is a sign that the Chiefs offense still has no direction whatsoever and we could be in for another 10 touchdown season total from this sputtering offense. Here at Kansas City News we have never been fans of Matt Cassel, figuring him to be the NFL's highest paid "back up" quarterback. With the franchise tag, Dwayne Bowe's salary will be 9.5 million dollars in 2012. He is a good back up quarterback, and did lead the New England Patriots to the playoffs when Tom Brady went down - but the fact that we paid this guy almost 60 million dollars to come play for the Chiefs is just plain ridiculous. With mediocre quarterbacks like Matt Cassel and Kyle Orton at the helm, putting the franchise tag on Dwayne Bowe just doesn't make any sense. If there is no one to get the ball to our receivers, then why are we putting such a high priority on them? The Kansas City Chiefs are going to be a defensive team, there is no doubt about it. We've made Romeo Crennel, who will absolutely be focusing on the defensive side of the ball, our head coach. And what is worse, we've brought in a terrible offensive coordinator from Miami in Brian Daboll, who had a miserable offensive season in 2011 with the Dolphins.
The Kansas City Chiefs need to realize where their priorities are and they need to do it fast. Putting the franchise tag on Dwayne Bowe is not the first thing that Chiefs fans wanted to hear in this off season. What we want to hear is that the Chiefs are going to look for a REAL quarterback, invest top draft picks on offensive lineman, and try to find a way to get our offense back on track. Thank God that Jamaal Charles is coming back, that should take some of the spotlight off of our hideous passing game. The Chiefs defense looks great and I think that the defense alone can get The Kansas City Chiefs 7-9 wins in 2012. Let's just hope that they don't put the franchise tag on any more wide receivers - who's next, Dexter McCluster?
Kansas City News announces that the Kansas City Chiefs put the franchise tag on Dwayne Bowe, March 5th, 2012.

Romeo Crennel Hired as Head Coach of the Chiefs
Romeo Crennel was extremely unsuccessful at his only other head coaching position with the Cleveland Browns, posting an unimpressive record of 24 and 40. Crennel is a great defensive coordinator, but he has proven that he is no head coach. The Chiefs should have left Crennel at defensive coordinator, which he excels at, and hired a new head coach who possibly had a more offensive mind. None of these things will matter, however, unless the owners of the Chiefs spend some money to get some real players in here, which we all know will never happen.
As we at Kansas City News pointed out weeks ago, the hiring of the head coach was the least important thing on the Chiefs to-do list. The Chiefs owners need to put up money first and foremost - that's it. Without some marquis players on the team, The Chiefs will have as much chance of winning a playoff game as the Royals, who are in the same position - no money spent on players, just put in the pockets of the owners. If the Chiefs actually did put up some money for some quality players, then the next thing that we need to acquire is a decent offensive line. Don't even think about a quarterback until you have secured a competitive offensive line. After the 0-line is secured, then we can start thinking about a real quarterback, not some old hack qb that can barely move around in the pocket like Orton. Orton was just a grasp at desperation, and Matt Cassel is nothing more than a high paid back up quarterback.
Although getting a new head coach was on the list for The Kansas City Chiefs, it was definitely not one of the high priorities. The Indianapolis Colts proved for over 10 years that you don't need a head coach to win, Peyton Manning and a great offensive line is how you win games. Their head coach didn't do ANYTHING but stand on the sidelines and work for a very low salary. Let's see if the Chiefs put up money to build an offensive line and go out and get a real quarterback before we even worry about what impact Romeo Crennel will make.

Kyle Orton Not Starting Palko Starts vs Bears
By this time the only people who are paying attention to Chiefs news are the hard core Chiefs fans who watch the team's every move no matter how poorly the team is performing. Though not as sad as Royals fans who have to sit through a grueling 162 game season with a losing team who's owners will spend no money to improve the team, the Chiefs fans only have to suffer through 17 weeks of watching an underfunded team struggle against the current that is the NFL. Though it would seem that the Chiefs stand a better chance of going into history as world champions each year, it is actually the Royals who have won the championship most recently in 1985. The Chiefs haven't gone all the way since 1970, and do not look like they are going to return any time soon.
I remember a time in Kansas City when you never saw a Chiefs game turned on anyone's TV, but you always saw people tuning in to watch the Royals. Growing up in the 80's I don't even remember anyone EVER watching a Chiefs game. The first time that I became aware of who the Chiefs even were was when the Kansas City Police used to hand out Chiefs Cards to us kids (looking back it makes me wonder who's idea that was??). The Royals were so popular in Kansas City that people even listened to the game on transistor radios, sitting in lawn chairs in the driveway when the game wasn't televised.
The Chiefs are clearly the most popular sports team in Kansas City right now, but that can only be attributed to the fact that NFL football is just simply more fun to watch than baseball in general. HD television, increased advertising revenue, and perhaps a more violent society has contributed to the popularity of the NFL (now that would make a good topic for a thesis, "how a more violent society has led to the increased popularity of the NFL" - go ahead and use that one students if you need a topic). The Chiefs Tailgate parties are also a huge reason for the team's dedicated fan base, and the Chiefs invest a lot of money to insure that the tailgate parties flourish and that the Chiefs fans have a reason to keep renewing their season tickets each year even though the team cannot compete in the NFL.
The Chiefs look like they are probably going to end up going 5-11, or maybe 6-10. The defense looks decent, but with Tyler Palko at the helm they are in trouble. Kyle Orton might be able to bring something to the table, but without blocking up front, and Orton's lack of scrambling ability, he may not put up good numbers either. If you've even read this far into this article I commend you on your support of the flailing Kansas City Chiefs, or maybe you are just spacing off at work again...

Tyler Palko to Start for Injured Matt Cassel
In his career with the Kansas City Chiefs, Tyler Palko has played in 4 games and thrown for 82 yards on 13 attempts with 0 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. Tyler Palko was drafted as an undrafted free agent in 2007 by the New Orleans Saints. Palko then signed with the Arizona Cardinals, and then the Pittsburgh Steelers before landing in Kansas City in 2010. Tyler Palko earned the position of 2nd string quarterback over rookie Ricky Stanzi during the 2011 preseason during which Palko proved to be the better man for the job. Palko was allowed to play the entire second half in the last game of the Chiefs preseason vs the Green Bay Packers. It is thought by many Chiefs fans that Palko earned the job of 2nd string quarterback through his knowledge of the playbook, as Ricky Stanzi is a rookie and has not mastered the system yet.
Palko will get his first NFL start on Monday Night Football vs the New England Patriots on November 21st, 2011. Although he is left handed, and thus more creative, he has yet to show this on the field. Many Chiefs fans agree that the change at quarterback from Matt Cassel to Tyler Palko is not going to impact the Chiefs performance as Cassel has been unsuccessful at leading the team thus far.

Jamaal Charles Out For Season Chiefs Fans Panic
On a seemingly common run, Jamaal Charles was on his way out of bounds, with no defenders in site, planted his left foot awkwardly on the sideline, and tore his ACL resulting in a season ending injury. ACL injuries are tricky because as an athlete, if you have no prior history of knee injuries, you don't concern yourself with body movements that may cause an ACL injury. As far as Jamaal Charles knew, he could manipulate his body an any direction, make sudden stops, or plant his foot firmly with his upper body in an awkward position (as was the case in this injury). As an athlete with no prior knee injuries, you just don't think about being careful. As a body ages, the knees are the first to go when you are an athlete that's major function is to run, stop, juke and plant. If you don't know your body's limitations, you are most likely going to blow out a knee. ACL injuries often occur as a result of a firm planting of the foot, with little or no "give" from the playing surface. This is why AstroTurf has been removed from almost all sports environments, because AstroTurf "grabs" the feet of the athletes, promoting ACL injuries.
The Chiefs have been cursed this season with THREE major ACL injuries, and Jamaal Charles was probably the final blow to a team that was doomed from the start with or without Jamaal Charles, Eric Barry and Tony Moeaki.
Jamaal Charles was put on injured reserve today, leaving the Chiefs with only 52 players on their active roster. We can expect the Chiefs to sign someone off of the waiver wire sometime this week, most likely a running back.

Chiefs Ravens Preseason Week 2
Just as many have predicted, it appears that the secret of Jamaal Charles is out of the bag and that every team facing the Chiefs this year will be keying on him. The football nation as a whole is WAY too excited about Jamaal Charles, and that's putting too much focus on him. For one example, fantasy league owners are choosing Charles an average of 4th pick overall and that is just rediculous. Charles is a great running back, but he is not going to be a secret any more, and since he doesn't exactly break tackles, he is going to have an uphill battle ahead of him in 2011. Fantasy owners who choose Charles in the first round are going to be sorry. In Friday night's game Charles stumped along for 12 yards on 4 carries, which is a much more realistic scenario of what is to come for the young running back.
Here at Kansas City News, we are still not sold on Matt Cassel, but at least he did get the ball into the air this week to go 6/14 with 73 yards. In our minds he is still a very highly paid back up quarterback. Tyler Palko made another great showing, going 8/13, 95 yards and a touchdown to Terrance Copper. This left handed gunslinger looks good to us, and he should be our number 2 guy.
Rookie Justin Houston had a great game with 2 sacks, honoring the #50 jersey that was worn by veteran Mike Vrabel. The defense continued to fall for the old short pass up the middle that is Baltimore's staple play, the same play they beat us over the head with over and over in last year's playoff game. The Chiefs defense needs to work on sealing up the middle or we're going to face real trouble when we meet teams with marquis running backs and shifty slot receivers. Other than that, the Chiefs starting defense did fairly well overall, matching blows with the Ravens starters all the way through the second half.
The Ravens left their starters in longer than the Chiefs and went on to win the game, but there is really no such thing as "winning" a preseason game, and I'm certain that Haley and Pioli do not care about the preseason scoreboard - and rightly so. The Chiefs came out with swagger and confidence and held their own against the Ravens, and that is a good sign of things to come.

Madden 12 Chiefs Player Ratings Released
The Chiefs are now rated a stately 84 overall as a team and the Madden 12 Chiefs player ratings (marquis players only), are as follows:
Matt Cassel - 86
Jamaal Charles - 95 (with a 98 speed to boot)
Thomas Jones - 84 (speed 86)
Dwayne Bowe - 91
Steve Breaston - 78
J. Baldwin - 71
D. McCluster - 74 (rightly deserved demotion, he played like ASS last year)
T. Moeaki - 76
Ryan Lilja - 86 (well deserved raise)
Tamba Hali - 91
Brandon Flowers - 91
Eric Berry - 88
Derrick Johnson - 86
Brandon Carr - 81 - HAHA! Dallas Cowboys are FOOLS! 50 MILLION for this guy? I want some of whatever the Dallas management is smoking. Brandon Carr is NOT worth anywhere NEAR 50 million dollars. What morons. It's a good thing that Dallas sucks, they can have Brandon Carr AND Kyle Orton - what idiots. Hey Dallas fans, did you know that Brandon Carr has only had 8 interceptions in his ENTIRE CAREER? Now that's talent....NOT. More on how stupid the Cowboys are HERE...
G. Dorsey - 81
Andy Studebaker - 75 (not a fair rating)
J. McGraw - 74
J. Arenas - 73 (definitely sucked last year)
Some of the rookies are not on the list yet as we don't know who is actually going to make the cut, but so far we think that the Madden 12 Chiefs player ratings are pretty accurate.
An interesting new feature for Madden 12 will be that players will have week to week personality ups and downs, similar to the old Tecmo Bowl game where sometimes a player would be red hot and sometimes he would be cold. Players ratings are affected by the mood of the player and these moods can change during games. Pretty cool stuff.

Looking Back on Last Year's Draft
Last year, the Chiefs were able to find quality starters while adding depth, the two ingredients for any successful draft. After years of bad drafts, Kansas City now finds themselves one good draft away from having a talented core of young players mixed with capable veterans. Hopefully the Chiefs will keep the momentum going from last year's draft and hit another home run tomorrow.

Kansas City Chiefs 2011 Schedule, Monday Night Games
The Chiefs kick off the season with a couple of easy teams, The Buffalo Bills and The Detroit Lions. Although we know that the Chiefs love to beat the difficult teams and lose to the easy teams (cough, cough, the Raiders in 2010), these two games should get the Chiefs off and running to a 2-0 start.
The three Monday night games actually look pretty good. We get the Chargers at home, then a recently not so impressive New England team at their house (even though there's no such place as "New England" - it's like saying that your team is from "Atlantis" or something - it's a FICTIONAL place folks) - we should have a chance vs. the diminishing Patriots. Hopefully we'll snap off Brady's leg at the knee and put him out for the season again.
Then finally we have Pittsburgh at home, which on paper looks like we should get our asses kicked.......unless you happened to be at Arrowhead on November 22nd, 2009. On that beautiful day, the bandwagon Steeler fans proudly sported their brand new Steelers jerseys, and actually outnumbered the Chiefs jerseys at Arrowhead. It was pathetic. We were joking around the entire game with these plastic Steeler "fans" telling them that they probably couldn't even point to Pittsburgh on a map. Posers. That reminds me:
Anyway, we got our revenge on the "away team jersey posers" that day as the Chiefs smoked up the Steelers 27-24 in overtime and the Steelers never recovered that season. Since their loss to the Chiefs, they slunk away into obscurity and lost most of their remaining games :)

Vrabel Arrested on Class D Felony - Chiefs News
|Mike Vrabel of the Kansas City Chiefs|
by Kansas City Mutha Fuckin' News
Do we really have a 35 year old linebacker on the Chiefs? Holy crap, it's a good thing that the Chiefs owner recently turned Arrowhead Stadium into a bar, or the fans might notice that the Chiefs are not spending any money on players. Anyway, on a "who really gives a fuck" note, senior citizen (and Chiefs linebacker) Mike Vrabel was arrested this morning for stealing from a casino. This was a class D felony and since there is no "league" at this moment, this probably won't hurt Vrabel in regards to the player's conduct rule. Thank God, because we really need all the 35 year old linebackers on the field we can get. I think that we should look into signing Lawrence Taylor as well (who recently hired a pimp to arrange sex with a 16 year old).
More details on this hilarious incident:
Chiefs LB Vrabel arrested for theft
FLORENCE, Ind. — Kansas City linebacker Mike Vrabel was arrested Monday and charged with theft from a riverboat casino.
The Switzerland County sheriff’s department said Vrabel, 35, was arrested at 5:30 a.m. and released about 5 hours later on $600 cash bond. He was charged with a class D felony.
“It was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and I take full responsibility for the miscommunication,” Vrabel said in a statement issued through his agent. “I feel comfortable that after talking with the appropriate parties, we will resolve this matter.”
The incident happened at the Belterra Casino in Florence, Ind. A call to the security department of the casino was not immediately returned.
Vrabel, a three-time Super Bowl winner with the New England Patriots, is a member of the NFLPA executive committee and one of the plaintiffs in the players’ antitrust lawsuit against the NFL. He is supposed to appear on Wednesday in Minneapolis in a hearing in federal court in the lawsuit.
Vrabel was traded from the Patriots to the Kansas City Chiefs before the 2009 season for a bag of popcorn and free tickets to Toy Story on Ice.
Mike Vrabel is expected to play the 2011 season using a walker and a hearing aide. Transportation will be provided for him to and from his home at Villa Ventura assisted living housing complex.
