“Defensive Line A Steamroller” plus Practice Tweets

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet     Steam Roller Blues Well, I’m a steamroller, baby, I’m bound to roll all over you. Yes, I’m a steamroller for you, baby, I’m bound to roll all over you. I’m gonna inject your soul with some sweet rock ‘n roll, And shoot you full of rhythm and blues. ~James Taylor, 1970   From year to year changes are made all over the roster. Injuries are an equal opportunity employer and plague players at every position. So, different position groups can change dramatically from one year…

A Second Chance: Nick Foles (My College Evaluation)

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet In the spring 2012 I wrote this piece about QB Nick Foles as he was coming out of Arizona. With a few additions… here’s to your second chance to get to know Nick Foles.   QB Nick Foles, Arizona, 6-6, 243 Robert Griffin, the three in one, may be out of reach which, I know, is not going to make one particular Chief Chiefs addict very happy (I refer to RGIII as “three in one” because some people are already treating him like deity). Also, Landry Jones…

Are You Kidding Me?

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet Every now and then in life there are these situations that come up and for one reason or another you find yourself mumbling these word, “Are you kidding me?” Well, the National Football League can leave fans with that feeling… perhaps more these days than in the past. So, let’s take a look at some of those moments and we’ll see if you can identify.   From ProFootballTalk comes this quote by Jerry Jones,   “Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones said that Foles “isn’t an…

K.C. Chiefs: Running Down Hill

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet The Kansas City Chiefs have had players come to camp… blow it up… then fizzle out once the season begins. The fans are used to it. However, I think it may be safe to say no rookie in recent memory has made his presence more known to Chiefs players, coaches and fans than Tyreek Hill has in 2016.   What’s the reason for all this attention? Speed. You see Tyreek Hill is fast if you haven;t heard that by now. So, how fast is “fast.” It’s kind…

Chiefs Team Building Theme is “No GoOFbAlLs”

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet When Anthony Sherman showed up for the Kansas City Chiefs training camp dressed in nothing but cutoff overalls, he became the focus of everyone with a camera or a set of eyeballs. These Chiefs, with a roster constructed by John Dorsey and Andy Reid, don’t bring in players who you’d call goofballs. In fact, they are steadfast in creating a cast of actors who are steady guys, more apt to star as policemen, attorneys or doctors in shows like Law & Order or Grey’s Anatomy than they…

Sunday’s Training Camp: More Than Practice

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet The Kansas City Cheifs had an abbreviated practice on Sunday morning truncated by lightening. So, they moved indoors, I understand, which is someplace out of reach for me. However, I got some great tape on the outdoor practice they did have, the best tape of a practice I’ve ever gotten simply because of the close-ups. At one point I thought I was part of a reality show because the offensive linemen had moved their drills closer and closer to me until they moved over right next to…

1st Day of Chiefs Training Camp

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet Robert Frost once said, “Ends and beginnings—there are no such things. There are only middles.“ This may be the “beginning” of another season but the Kansas City Chiefs are in the “middle” of making a drive for a championship which began three years ago when head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey moved here. It’s better to understand that, before entering into a discussion about the Chiefs 2016 training camp. Appropriately, this training camp started out with a light rain… which turned to scattered clouds…
