1. Former Chief Will Shields made impact in KC that went beyond football
By Sam Mellinger - The Kansas City Star
" The rules are very clear that what you're about to read does not matter. We hope you humor us here anyway.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame is about football first and football only. The men that Will Shields is to join with induction are the best players our country's most popular sport has seen, and by that demanding standard the former Chiefs lineman is now certified." READ MORE…

2. The Star's NFL first-round draft projection
By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star
"1 Tampa Bay QB Marcus Mariota, 6-4, 219, Oregon
The Josh McCown experiment was a disaster, and Mike Glennon was not drafted by this current regime.

4. Would Chase Daniel Succeed in Tennessee?
By Justin Hussong - Pro Football Spot
"To say that the Tennessee Titans' quarterback situation is up in the air would be as big of an understatement as saying 2-14 isn't a very good record.
After a season like that, with your team leader throwing for 1,412 yards and 8 touchdowns, you are going to have to ask some questions. In fact, the Titans have only had the same quarterback lead the team in passing yards for two consecutive seasons one time in the last 12 years." READ MORE…
5. Tom Brady wins 3rd Super Bowl MVP
By AP - ESPN
"As a kid, years before he became a pretty good quarterback in his own right, Tom Brady idolized Joe Montana.
