Good job Stricken!
I thought I would start a thread where we could post most things related to training camp here. I figured I would give you guys some links to check personal updates from players, and from some sports analysts that you can check daily (like I do). Some of you may already use these sites but this is for those of you that don't or would just like a clickable link.

Some of the players don't update everyday but when they do, I like it. If y'all know of any other sites that are updated frequently please add them.

Went to training camp yesterday. For starters, Dexter is REALLY REALLY fast. He is going to be amazing. Dwane looks incredible, and caught everything, including very difficult passes. But Jon Osamoah, (spelling?) was the biggest highlight AND lineman out there. He is a beast. And he looked really really good. I think he might play a great deal this year. Waters was nursing an injury. And Haley says "F..." a lot.
Im going back every chance I get. If you live in the area, you really should check out training camp. You are literally on the field ten feet from practice, and there are concessions, food, beer, cheap Chiefs gear (I got a new fitted old school Chiefs hat for ten bucks) stuff for kids, and autographs after practice. I am getting Haley to sign my Chiefs golf visor next time, how cool is that?

It will interesting to see if the Chiefs actually use the wildcat this coming season. It looks like they have the personnel to do some form of it.
Keeping my britches between the ditches! :character00182:
What a waste of time that could be used to get everyone more efficient at performing plays that could actually work.
During his press conference this afternoon Haley commented on us practicing the Wildcat. He said that practicing it is really for the benefit of the defense as many teams they are going to face are running some form of it from time to time. But he dismissed us follwing suit by saying it was his and Weis' philosophy that "you let the runners run, the catchers catch and the throwers throw".
I could see Weis and Haley quietly rolling their eyes at the Wildcat and dismiss it as a gimmick they are too good for.

It really sounds like the defense is getting better. The LB's and secondary are the ones I noticed that get the most attention. Having Romeo spend some extra time with the D-Line is definitely a plus. I just wish I was a couple states closer to go see camp.
I love hearing Dexter's name popping up. He is probably my favorite pick so far in this draft, I'm just hoping he's as good on the playing field as he is on the practice field.
I didn't see D-Bowe drop any today either, nor any WR's. Cassel is throwing GREAT!! GREAT!! GREAT!! Eric Berry is AWESOME! He is super quick & high jumping, batted down at least one ball preventing a score, & I think there was another, but my view was blocked, couldn't see the jersey number for sure.
I didn't have the same experience as you with getting player auto's though. There were tons of fans today, crowding the area we were told to be for auto's at the end of today's camp. The player's only sign for 10 minutes, and those in front appeared to be the fortunate ones. I'm too damn short & little compared to many in front of me. :(
I'm hoping to attend at least one more time before camp is over, on a weekday, which maybe it won't be as crowded with fans.
