NFL reportedly tells Chiefs lineman he can’t wear “Duvernay-Tardif, M.D.” on his jersey

Each of the past four offseasons, while many of his NFL peers were vacationing or hitting the gym this spring, Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has been up in Montreal, pursuing a degree at McGill’s medical school. And when the four-year NFL veteran completed his program last month, he had a simple request for the league. He wanted to wear “Duvernay-Tardif M.D.” on his jersey, signaling to the world that he was a real-life bona fide doctor. Well, the...

10 ways to survive your Chiefs craving until September

We have a couple weeks to go. Here are some strategies to pass the time until football begins. Some random thoughts and references to help keep you in the right state of mind while the NFL goes through the quietest time of year, then into training camp: 1) Say goodbye to the 2017 Chiefs, and hello to the new version. I’ve made the case in the past that we have to think about each year’s team as its own entity. They may have some of the same players as 2017, but it’s not simply a...

NFL reportedly rejects Laurent Duvernay-Tardif’s ‘M.D.’ jersey request

A French Canadian reporter said the league wouldn’t allow the Chiefs right guard to add the letters to his jersey. Come on, NFL. Kansas City Chiefs starting right guard and international hero Laurent Duvernay-Tardif made headlines back in mid-February when he requested that the league allow him to put M.D. on his game jersey. Duvernay-Tardif, 27, officially became a doctor this offseason when he graduated from medical school at McGill University in Montreal. We mocked up what the jersey...

Yes, Andy Reid helps his QBs throw fewer interceptions

The numbers show that Reid’s influence should help Patrick Mahomes in his first year as Chiefs starter I was listening to the radio or a podcast the other day (or maybe I dreamt it, who knows), and a little nugget of information was implanted in my brain: “Andy Reid’s offense protects his quarterbacks from throwing too many interceptions” — unknown radio/podcast/dream guy This information festered in my brain for a few days, so I had to do some quick research. Overall interception...

The Pick

The schedule is intimidating but I'm not scared. The Chiefs have massive upside with Mahomes under center and can be as dangerous as anyone in the AFC this year. I think Watkins is going to be better than people think and Hunt could actually be better this year. The defense is going to sneak up on some people. If you take this over,...

Sammy Watkins in 2018: Pro Bowler or bust?

It’s either one of the other this year for the fifth-year wide receiver Something significant jumped out at me as I was producing Wednesday’s Arrowheadlines. The Kansas City Chiefs’ shiny new toy, 25-year-old wide receiver Sammy Watkins, popped up twice, but the interesting part was the vast difference in story tones. The first was a piece from legendary NFL executive Gil Brandt, who projected a first-time Pro Bowler for each AFC team in 2018. When it came to the Chiefs, you guessed...

Hunt would have been a long shot to make this year’s Chiefs team.

Hunt, 25, thanked the Chiefs on his official Twitter account after reaching the settlement: Hunt was first promoted to the Chiefs active roster from the team’s practice squad in mid-September of 2017.
