Let’s get to know Brett Veach, the Chiefs in-house GM candidate

With John Dorsey’s surprise firing, we’re scrambling to figure out how the Chiefs replace him. Listen to Terez Paylor’s Facebook chat from earlier this week. He talked a lot about how this is typically vacation time for the NFL, and the Chiefs may have a hard time getting outside candidates in to interview. The unusual timing of Dorsey’s dismissal also means that the new GM really has to hit the ground running. Training camp is coming soon, as are roster cuts, both for the Chiefs and the other 31 teams. Whoever takes over this role needs to have deep familiarity with the Chiefs...

Familiar faces could interview for Chiefs GM job

An in-house promotion seems most likely, but you never know. The Kansas City Chiefs surprised the football world this past week when they announced the departure of general manager John Dorsey. The two sides had been discussing a contract extension, but talks stalled, and things quickly went south. Initial reports suggested a mutual parting, but it became pretty clear that the Chiefs were the ones making the call. A departure this late in the offseason suggests an internal candidate could take over. However, the team appears set to move into a broader interview process. The first report...

Well, this is weird. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is pretty reliable and he said that the Kansas City Chiefs were setting up an interview with ESPN’s Louis Riddick for their GM job.

It’s been reported that the Kansas City Chiefs are setting up an interview with ESPN’s Louis Riddick for their GM job. You can go here to read a little bit more about Riddick’s bio as a player and personnel executive. What I’m interested in Riddick’s tweets. He went from a personnel job to ESPN where he’s in the public eye. We have a history of his thoughts on the Chiefs, Alex Smith and Patrick Mahomes. I’ve seen a few tweets from him about Alex being limited (also some positive comments). He has some very good things to say about Mahomes. I would imagine that liking Mahomes...

Stagner Things: Harsh realities for the Chiefs

Stagner Things: Harsh realities for the Chiefs

It’s not personal, it’s just business. Don’t worry about what players say once they have been released. Their Chiefs career ended, and mostly not by their own choice. They don’t owe us anything. They gave their effort, their health and their time in a very limited window of their productive career. The same goes for coaches and front office guys. They do their best while they are here, and move on when they have to. They all serve at the pleasure of the ownership. Nobody is untouchable, even ‘a boss’. The shocking dismissal of John Dorsey is the latest example of the fact...
