Hunt Ready to Bring the Super Bowl to Arrowhead

With the first outdoor, cold-weather Super Bowl to be played this Sunday in New York, Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt is ready for Kansas City to get in the game and bring a Super Bowl to Arrowhead Stadium.

“We could absolutely pull it off,” Hunt said on Friday following NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s annual state of the league address. “We can put on a great Super Bowl … Arrowhead would be an unbelievable venue for it on game day.”

The big Chiefs news today is the fact that guard Will Shields is up for nomination into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The decision will be made tomorrow, and while there seems to be little debate as to Shields deserving to be in the Hall, there is some debate on whether it happens this year or not.

Another interesting find today comes from CBS Sports, and it is a picture of Chiefs QB Len Dawson enjoying a cigarette after Super Bowl I. I’m not sure where they found that picture, but it’s an interesting look at a young Dawson. Also, stories about how Clark Hunt believes that the Chiefs could pull off a Super Bowl at Arrowhead, and a report that the Chiefs have signed all-star CFL receiver Weston Dressler.

Without further ado, here are today’s Kansas City Chiefs headlines from around the web:

Clark Hunt: ‘Andy Reid is an outstanding leader’ – KC Chiefs.com

“I have thought a little bit about that parallel, but I think we have a more mature roster. We have more players that are in the prime of their career. I think we have a very stable and outstanding leader in Andy Reid, who has shown he can be successful, over a long period of time. As hard as it is to be successful in any given year, I think being successful consistently is much more difficult. With Andy, we have somebody who has demonstrated that and who I expect would be able to do that with the Chiefs.”

A pretty quiet day as far as Chiefs news goes. The only real story out there is that former Missouri star Brock Olivo is joining the Chiefs as the team’s new assistant special teams coordinator. Olivo will replace Kevin O’Dea, who left the Chiefs this offseason to become the head special teams coach in Tampa Bay.

“I was trying to get back on the field,” Charles said. “I feel like I didn’t have a concussion. I kind of got (woozy), like a boxer. Just give me a 10 count and let me get back in the ring and let me fight again.”

Cardinals Interested in Albert Again?

Although the NFL’s free agency period is still more than a month away, Branden Albert’s name is already being thrown around. Here’s the latest tweet from Mike Jurecki, the Arizona Cardinals reporter for Fox Sports 910 in Pheonix:

He’ll be the #1 targeted in free agent, his asking price will dictate if they draft a LT. MT @JohnnysFootball @TGravey22 Branden Albert?

The big Chiefs story today is the hit that Derrick Johnson put on Jamaal Charles in last night’s Pro Bowl. With Charles coming off of a concussion in the playoff game against Indianapolis, it was a little shocking to see Johnson lay a hit on him like that. Overall, Johnson had a great performance and was named the Pro Bowl’s Defensive MVP.

“DJ” and Chiefs Shine in 2014 Pro Bowl – KC Chiefs.com

If there was any question that the Pro Bowl wouldn’t be competitive, the naysayers weren’t aware of the Chiefs, who compete in everything they do, including “DJ”.

Early in the first quarter, Johnson met Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles near the line of scrimmage and dropped him in his tracks. The former Texas Longhorns enjoyed a smile after the hit, but it was clear the game was seen as no joke by either side.

“DJ” continued to make plays throughout the game, including the forced fumble he caused against Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris, which was recovered by Team Rice. The game’s defensive MVP finished with eight tackles, one assist and the forced fumble.
