The Kansas City Chiefs wrapped up their mandatory three-day minicamp yesterday and according to WR Dwayne Bowe, the team is clicking.
“Guys are clicking,”said Bowe this week. “Guys are in sync. We’re getting ready to go away for a couple of days and take some time off and workout and train and be ready for the season. That’s the good part.”
When asked if the Chiefs were ahead of the curve, Bowe answered in the affirmative.
“Right now, yeah. Repetition, guys are getting 100 reps a day, so things are starting to click on both sides – offense and defense. Only time will tell when the season starts how good we’re going to look, but we feel good right now.”
The Chiefs had a lot of work to get done this offseason. Andy Reid is their third head coach in three years and the entire organizational depth chart has been shuffled. There are new faces everywhere, both on the field and in the front office.
As the team enters six-week break before training camp, optimism seems high, particularly when it comes to newly acquired starting QB, Alex Smith.
“He’s a leader on and off the field,” said Bowe, who recently compared Smith to Steve Young. “He’s putting pressure on the defense. He’s running the huddle. When we don’t have a huddle, he’s speeding guys up and the tempo gets us in better shape. And he’s pushing the defense, so that’s going to make our team better.”
