Kansas City Chiefs: Player Most Likely To Break Out In 2015

Before we can even begin to evaluate who is the Kansas City Chiefs’ player most likely to break out this season, we need to define two terms: “most likely” and “break out.” Let’s work backwards. To have a break out season, a player must greatly exceed reasonable expectations. A breakout player can be a rookie, such as Odell Beckham Jr.’s 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns...

Chiefs' Alex Smith, Jeremy Maclin building rapport

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Alex Smith was familiar with Jeremy Maclin long before the wide receiver signed with Kansas City, first catching him on television and then studying him on film with the Eagles. So once Maclin finally put on a Chiefs jersey, it didn't take long for him to begin building a rapport with Smith. In fact, by their third preseason game Friday night, they were already...

WATCH: Alex Smith Hits Travis Kelce With The 8-Yard Touchdown Pass

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is the kind of tight end every quarterback likes to have. He's a big enough guy that eh can go across the middle, catch the ball in traffic, and not cry later about getting set up by his QB to get laid out by  a linebacker. He's a great possession receiver and he has the kind of speed that can make a short reception turn in to a big play...

There isn’t a ‘LeBron James of football,’ and there never will be

Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson both think they’re the “LeBron James of Football.” Both are wrong, and here’s why. 1. A running back can’t be a LeBron — The last two seasons were the most pass-heavy campaigns in NFL history. The face of almost every team is the quarterback. If being the LeBron of the league means being the face of the league, there’s no way Charles...

Is Kansas City Chiefs QB Chase Daniel Becoming a Viable NFL Quarterback?

Chase Daniel is going in to his seventh season as an NFL quarterback. That is much longer than many, a fact made more remarkable by the fact that he has only thrown 75 passes (66 of them over the last two seasons in Kansas City). Apparently he has shown enough to be kept around, but no one has shown much interest in making him their No. 1 guy.However, with the way he has looked over...
