One of my last clips with PFW appeared in this Jan. 20, 2013 edition
NFL fans lost a good one in the last week, as Pro Football Weekly officially announced on May 31 the closing of operations after an almost 46-year run.
Gone are detailed NFL Draft previews, the annual offseason “On the Clock” feature, “Whispers,” “The Way We Hear It” and “Audibles,” among others.
It’s the end of an era for a mainstay of NFL news, but an even sadder day for print journalism.
The Chiefs on Tuesday announced the free-agent signings of tight end Kevin Brock, defensive lineman Marcus Dixon and wide receiver Mardy Gilyard.
Dixon has familiarity with new defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, having played in Sutton’s system the last three seasons with the New York Jets.
Screen grab of Chiefs coach Andy Reid’s Thursday guest spot
Chiefs coach Andy Reid made a Thursday evening appearance on Time Warner Cable Metro Sports to discuss a variety of subjects with sports anchor Dave Stewart.
The interview included Reid’s transition to Kansas City, the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine and his trust in general manager John Dorsey and the team’s scouting department.
Still, considering the Chiefs went 23-41 during the disastrous Scott Pioli-Matt Cassel era, what most want to hear are Reid’s thoughts surrounding the quarterback position.
Screen grab of ‘Leon Sandcastle’ Super Bowl commercial spot
With Super Bowl XLVII officially in the books, the spotlight falls on the next event fans everywhere look forward to – the NFL Draft on April 25-27.
And Chiefs fans anticipating the No. 1 pick overall were treated to a gem during the third quarter of Sunday’s big game.
TEs have big role in WCO
The first image most think of when it comes to the West Coast offense are the quarterbacks, which includes the likes of Joe Montana, Steve Young, Brett Favre, Donovan McNabb, Jeff Garcia or Matt Hasselbeck.
Next on minds are the wide receivers that thrived in the scheme over the last two decades, including Jerry Rice, Sterling Sharpe, Terrell Owens, Antonio Freeman, among others.
But often lost in the discussion is a position that plays a major role.
