The first half of the first preseason game is in the books. The Chiefs didn’t look great but they didn’t look terrible either. I would say they look average so far and for this team, that is a step in the right direction.
Here are some notes:
*Matt Cassel didn’t really get a chance to throw very much.He had very few passes down field before checking out.
*No catches for Bowe.
*Thomas Jones couldn’t get anything going through the middle of the O-line.He left the game with a stinger.
* When Jamaal Charles checked in, the offense moved the ball very effectively. Charles looks to be picking up right where he left off.
* Dexter McCluster looked electric running the ball.
*The defense got ran all over on the first drive. Then they stiffened up.
* Ryan Succup struggled missing 2 FG’s though they were from beyond 5o yards.
* Brodie Croyle looked very sharp.
