Around The Web: Safeties Stepping Up, New MO Radio Station, Cushing Out

So far in training camp the Chiefs defense has outperformed the offense.  As Adam Teicher reports, a big reason for that is the play of safeties Bernard Pollard and Jarrad Page, two players Kansas City is counting on in 2009. The Chiefs drafted both players in 2006, Pollard in the second round and Page in […]

Peter King: Pollard Almost Pulled A “Brady” On Cassel

National writers are making their tour through training camps and this past Wednesday it was Peter King from Sports Illustrated visiting River Falls.  And according to King’s MMQB column, Bernard Pollard came eerily close to a repeat of the play that gave Matt Cassel his chance to play last year in New England.

Around The Web: Defending Dorsey, Offensive Issues, Cottam Catching On, Brady MIA

Glenn Dorsey has been a favorite target of fans and media alike, but Bob Gretz is coming to the defense of last year’s first round pick. The rush to judgment on the part of some in the media on Dorsey’s rookie season had less to do with what the young man did on the field, […]
