@adamteicher Is it AT ALL possible for them to win 12-13 games? I think they can do it if they stay healthy. #Chiefs

Anything is possible but I'm not going to predict 12 or 13 wins for the Chiefs. Their schedule, remember, includes only seven home games. They have to play against Green Bay, Minnesota, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Cincinnati and Buffalo. They also have two games apiece against the Broncos and Chargers. It's ambitious with that kind of schedule to think the Chiefs will win more than, say, 10 games."    READ MORE…

2. Retooled receiving corps excites Chiefs QB Alex Smith

By Steve Yingling - Special to Kansas City Star

"As training camp nears for the Chiefs, one statistic from last season won't be forgotten: zero touchdowns for the receiving corps in 16 games.

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith hasn't dwelled on that number as his summer break winds down while participating in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament near Lake Tahoe.

Entering his 11th NFL season, Smith confidently talks about the set of receivers the franchise has put together following back-to-back AFC West runner-up finishes."    READ MORE…

3. Who will win division, how many division teams will make playoffs?

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"Today's question: Who will win the division and how many teams from the division will make the playoffs?

They'll have some competition from the Chiefs and the Chargers and it wouldn't surprise me to see the division have its first champion other than the Broncos since 2010. The Chiefs will get back in the postseason after a year's absence. The Chargers won't, but they'll be close.

The Raiders will be improved but they're still at least a year away from being serious contenders."    READ MORE…

4. Bulldogs say Justin Houston's success reflects well on Georgia

By Todd Palmer - Kansas City Star

""Justin is a guy that I'm so very proud of," Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said Thursday during SEC Media Days. "I remember meeting him in high school and just seeing this kid with these long arms and big hands and big feet and kind of not having grown into his frame yet a little bit, and I watched him grow as a player and as a person throughout the time he was at Georgia.

"Now, to see him doing what he's doing in the league and being rewarded for the good things that he's done on the field and off as well, it's just a tremendous thing for him and for Georgia as well.""    READ MORE…

5. Chiefs teammates are thrilled for Justin Houston's new contract

By Chris Bumbaca - Kansas City Star

""It's big for us," Chiefs wide receiver Junior Hemingway said Saturday while at Trey Hobson's youth football camp at Shawnee Mission East High School.

"To have Justin back, man, it's a good move for us. We can keep pushing, keep doing what we're doing as a team, keep building, keep grinding, and get going — and try and get this ring."

To Hemingway, Houston is not just the best defensive player on the Chiefs, but the best in the league.

"In my eyes," Hemingway said. "He's the best.""    READ MORE…
