When guard Ryan Lilja left the field with an apparent concussion during Monday night's loss at New England, the Chiefs turned to a replacement who, at first glance, doesn't inspire much confidence.

What, were the Chiefs not able to get in touch with Joe Kingman or Shane Falco? It took all of one day for an NFL team to decide a quarterback who wasn't good enough to start over Tim Tebow could be effective as their starter, proving yet again that despite a book of rules that heavily favor offenses, halfway decent quarterbacks are hard to find. The Kansas City Chiefs picked...

Todd Haley likes his players gritty and raw, and there's a place out east where they build them just like that. When he told Pittsburgh reporters this week about the Chiefs signing wide receiver Steve Breaston this summer, there was pride in his words.
Kyle Orton will have the opportunity to compete for the Kansas City Chiefs' starting quarterback job, though in all likelihood it'll be after the game against the Steelers.
As the Chiefs searched for an available quarterback who could help them salvage their season, there was really only one option. Kyle Orton was a veteran starter who had won a lot of games and, at 29, still should have some good football left in him.
Quarterback Kyle Orton, awarded to the Chiefs this week after a waiver claim, joined his new team for Friday evening's practice, but he might have joined the Chiefs too late to be active Sunday night against Pittsburgh.

Three key members of the Kansas City Chiefs offense -- quarterback Tyler Palko and wide receivers Steve Breaston and Jon Baldwin -- will have a Western Pennsylvania reunion tonight when they face the Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium. But one high school in particular -- O. Perry Walker in New Orleans -- will have a bigger gathering of alumni on the field.
