I posted a story wondering if Tyler Bray was ready to be the Chiefs No. 2 behind Alex Smith and someone suggested to me in response that they need a veteran back there because the Chiefs are in win-now mode. I won’t argue the value of a veteran back there but I wondered if the Chiefs are really in win-now mode. Are they? I look at the quarterback and the fact that they have this...
The Kansas City Chiefs last couple of draft classes have been really good. Not only on hitting on a few stars but depth for days as well. I’m not completely sure which draft class is better: 2015 or 2016? I know, it’s not three years out and it’s too early to judge them but we’re judging them for good reasons.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) For a man who hates to discuss contracts, Chiefs general manager John Dorsey spent a whole lot of time Thursday doing precisely that during an end-of-the-season teleconference.

You’d think an NFL quarterback would be really good at dodgeball.Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith might be an exception.Just watch this clip from the NFL Pro Bowl skills competition on Thursday: What kind of form is that? His awkward, sidearmed throw predictably bounced harmlessly off the ground.Come on, Alex Smith. Just throw the ball. Dodgeball isn’t third down.
