Chiefs News And Rumors 5/29

“The type of thing that coach Sutton is doing with the entire defense, from cornerbacks to safeties, to linebackers, we’re coming; so, we can get a lot of sacks,” Hali said.

“They’re actually looking forward to this defense, to attack gaps, push guys back and make plays.”

According to Chiefs DT Daniel Muir, that’s exactly what he and his teammates have been doing, making plays.

“We’ve just been flying around,” Muir said. “Guys have been having fun and making plays. The thing about our defense is, even if you make a mistake, if you’re just running and flying around, coming off the football, you’ll make plays and that’s exactly what’s been happening. It’s awesome, because as a defensive lineman, you want to come off the football and dominate; you want to get upfield and make a play, that’s exactly what he calls our defensive line to do.”

Matt Cassel

The veteran backup they should’ve had in 2012. I bet Rick Spielman regrets going with Joe Webb last year. But that’s ancient history now. Cassel gives them a solid #2. He only starts if things go terribly wrong with Ponder. There is no reason for Ponder to feel threatened. If Ponder does his job, he will continue to be the starter. Cassel is no threat unless Ponder fails on his own.

The Viking Age

Without question, Berry is the starter at strong safety and could easily be the best safety in the NFL. Nobody questions the talent or heart of a man who made the pro bowl as a rookie, tore his ACL in his second year, and then rebounded to make the pro bowl in year three.

Nobody plays the run from his position like Berry, and few can be a center fielder like him either. The Chiefs are lucky to have him. The bigger question is who plays beside him. For his entire career, Kendrick Lewis has been a starter but with Husain Abdullah, Dunta Robinson and Sanders Commings in the mix, that status is in jeopardy.

    Matt Cassel? Why even mention him? He didn’t help us, so who cares if he goes to another team and wins their starting job??

    Am I the only person who likes Kendrick Lewis? Every time I read an article re: the Chiefs, there is a post about how he is going to lose his job.

      Kendrick who?? Dude never did anything outstanding for us… He made one
      or two plays 2 yrs ago, so what… Time to move-on so we can move up!
      If he somehow steps-up and earns a spot on this team — it’ll be good
      for him and good for us…..I hope…but I won’t be holding my breath. I
      remember Mitch Holthus poo pooing this dude as a some sort of field general……… pleeeeeeeze…
