As we await the final cuts, let’s take a look at what has happened and what is going on in AA land.
The Rams game was interesting, but mostly forgettable except for the players competing for jobs.
Brodie Croyle: Brodie’s decision making is much improved over last year. He is developing. Hopefully, he will continue to grow during the regular season.
Jamaal Charles: This scatback showed that he could be a nice addition to the Chiefs‘ offense.
Mike Cox: We may have found a decent FB who shows some receiving ability. All this from a undrafted rooking free agent.
Tyler Thigpen: Tyler has shown that he is not ready for the NFL. Can he develop during the year or is he finished?
Devard Darling: Were you even in training camp? Your time here has been very forgettable so far. Hopefully, you will show why you are in the NFL during the regular season.
Thoughts on some roster spot battles:
Kicker: This news has already broke. It’s going to be Novak. I was leaning towards Connor based on better kickoffs, but it’s really not a big deal. No one really stood out. I would not be surprised if this is not the final word on Chief kickers this year.
Running back: How many do we keep? Already there are AA calls to trade LJ or trade Kolby. My thought is to keep both of them. Charles and Savage are not every down backs and I am not sold on Battle.
Wide Receiver: Well, all it took was one, count it ONE catch (nice route, nice pass) for the Sippio fanatics to get all excited again. That sound you heard last night was the sound of the Sippio bandwagon driver climbing back on board and trying to run over Price. I still see Sippio as the odd man out.
Returner: Wow, this one got another spin last night when Sams outplayed Savage. What do you do? Sams is hurt; could that be the reason to cut him? Do we keep both and carry this into the regular season? I wasn’t all that concerned about Savage stepping out of bounds again Miami. However, the fumble against the Rams bothers me. I still would keep Savage and cut Sams.
What are your thoughts on the battles?
