As NASCAR has its silly season, this is the time the NFL has it's quiet time.

The Kansas City Chiefs now has pieces to their puzzle, so where do they go from here? With Matt Cassel waiting in the wings to spread his arms, who's going to be his No. 1 target?

Cassel is working with Dwayne Bowe on trying to get their rhythm down to science. Brad Cottam had a good OTA as well with several impressive grabs on Monday. If Cassell can spread the defense open with a good mixture of passes to Bowe and Cottam, it should keep the defense guessing.

The Chiefs also showed promise on Monday as they continue to learn the 3-4 defensive scheme new defensive coordinator Clancey Pendergast has installed.

Derrick Johnson seems to be picking up the 3-4 nicely, with one interception on the day. The defensive backs had a stellar practice also, with Brandon Flowers and Maurice Leggett making two pickoffs each off the offense.

Chiefs' punter Dustin Colquitt made some impressive punts for the team, as special teams coach Steve Hoffman works on his mechanics and mentality.

All in all, the Chiefs seem to have all of their pieces coming together nicely, and they should have an impressive showing when the games count.

With training camp and preseason around the corner, the Chiefs are on track for a exciting season ahead, but only time will tell.
