the web for team tidbits
Cyber Chiefs is another feature offered by www.plattecountylandmark.com
to bring you complete Kansas City Chiefs coverage.
Each update will contain a variety of Chiefs news, notes
and gossip from various Web sites on the Internet.
UW at River Falls (
www.uwrf.info/chiefs/welcome.html ) reports that head
coach Dick Vermeil was looking forward to seeing WR Marc
Boerigter in pre-season game situations. Boerigter is
challenging for the # 3 spot at WR. Unfortunately Boerigter
came down with an apparent attack of appendicitis on Sunday
If he has appendicitis and they do it electroscopically,
hell be back in two weeks, Vermeil stated
on the site.
Vermeil sounds like Yogi Berra using words like eloctroscopically.
His timetable is accurate thoughThat would put Boerigter
back on the field for pre-season game number two.
Note: The AP reported that Boerigter had his
appendix removed early Sunday.
Rick Dean of CJ-Online opines that head coach Dick Vermeil
may have an irrational exuberance about the KC Chiefs
WR position this season.
Vermeil is quoted in the piece, Theres no
comparison, no comparison, Well have guys who wont
make the team this year who would have made it last year.
I really believe that.
Its hard to blame Vermeil after last seasons
disastrous output by the WRs.
Ivan Carter of the Star opines in his daily update from
camp that left offensive tackle Willie Roaf is dominating
the defensive ends that have went up against him so far
He also states that rookie defensive lineman Eddie Freeman
is starting to get under the skin of many of the Chiefs
offensive linemen. The kid loves to get nasty on
the football field, Carter said in his Sunday column.
Chiefs fans will see how left offensive tackle is
supposed to be played if Roaf stays healthy.
Freeman is number one on the depth chart while Chiefs
number one draft pick Ryan Sims holds out. The Chiefs
definitely need nasty to rear its head on
The Chiefs official Web site reports that the August
3rd practice against the Vikings will be broadcast live
for season ticket holders at the Pavilion at Arrowhead
The team also announced that the August 10th pre-season
game will be shown on 4 HDTVs at the Pavilion. All
fans are welcome to attend this event. The Chiefs state
that former Chiefs players will be on hand to provide
commentary and fans will have an opportunity to see the
Chiefs new History Display highlighting the first 42 years
of the franchise.

Nice touch by the team. If youve never watched
a game in high-def, its worth the trip to Arrowhead.
