Good morning, AG!

Today in Chiefs’ history, In 2017 the Chiefs hire Brett Veach as general manager.

Some other stuff may have happened.

1925 The Scopes Trial began in Dayton, Tennessee, with William Jennings Bryan arguing for the prosecution and Clarence Darrow for the defense.

1962 Swedish engineer Nils Bohlin was issued a U.S. patent for a three-point seatbelt for cars; a major safety innovation, it featured a strap that extended across the upper body in addition to a standard lap restraint. So far, no one has come forward to admit it was their idea for that infernal beeping noise when the belt isn’t fastened.

1965 British rock band the Rolling Stones topped U.S. charts for the first time with the single (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.

1985 The Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior was sunk by two bomb explosions while berthed in Auckland Harbour, New Zealand; it was later revealed that French intelligence agents had planted the explosives. Sacré bleu!

2019 German automaker Volkswagen ended production of the Beetle, the first model of which had been introduced in 1938. Quatsch!

“Not a lot of fast guys going to put in the same work that I’ve put in each and every day,” the wideout told the podcast. “Cause I love football. I’m passionate about it. I want to win. You know what I’m saying? I was born a winner. My whole entire life, I’ve been a winner. I hate losing.”

2024 Chiefs Re-Draft Provides Valuable Exercise in What Not to Care About | SI

https://www.si.com/nfl/chiefs/draft/2024-kansas-city-chiefs-re-draft-provides-valuable-exercise-in-what-not-to-care-about

In a new piece on Bleacher Report, author Matt Holder re-drafts the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft “after early offseason buzz.” This concept is flawed from the beginning — public “buzz” isn’t exactly behind-closed-doors intel — but the Chiefs’ re-draft logic is especially bankrupt.

We’ll continue with the offensive line, where the Chiefs currently employ 15 players. Let’s take a look at each, separated by offensive tackles and interior linemen. Many of these players possess the versatility to handle either role, but for the sake of this breakdown, each player will be sorted into where they’ve been grouped so far this summer.

2024 Chiefs player profile: RB Isiah Pacheco | Chiefs Wire

The Kansas City Chiefs surprised some fans with their commitment to the ground game last season, and while Brett Veach’s investments at the wide receiver position indicate that the team is getting back to its pass-first roots, Andy Reid would be wise to continue leaning on starting running back Isiah Pacheco in 2024.

Chiefs QB Chris Oladokun reflects on being honored for role in the 2023 AFC Championship Game | Chiefs Wire

“Coach (Andy) Reid was like, ‘Hey, this has never been done before, but our Defensive Player of the Game,’” said Oladokun, “and he said my name and the defense was fired up for me. To have that validation, like, ‘We need you. You helped us win this game, and it is something I’ll never forget because I’m not waking up at 5:30 every morning for nothing. I’m valuable to this team.”

I believe that’s for full team. Yesterday, the Chiefs tweeted (X’d?) that training camp is a week away.

Good to know, since I expect now that my Saturday Huddle (such that it is) may finally include actual, tangible Chiefs news.

In other news, Nikola Tesla – neither the band nor the brand – was born today in 1856.

That breakdown of the Chiefs OL group is helpful. Niang is hanging around, he’s lasted longer than Kinnard – that tendon injury sure put a damper on his pro start but he could be a valuable piece. On the whole (with the wait-and-see at LT) this looks to be a solid position group.

I’m glad I didn’t grow up having to learn how to spell my hometown’s name of Albu… With Montreal the only priblem was do you include the accent over the e and is it é or è.
