Kanas City Chiefs vs. New Orleans Saints: Live Thread


Well, we’ve discussed it, we’ve analyzed it and we’ve been looking forward to it.

Funny thing is, it’s only a preseason game.

That’s right folks, the first snap of the Kansas City Chiefs’ 2013 season is quickly approaching, and even though the wins and losses don’t count right now, there’s still going to be a ton to talk about.

This is going to be the first game of the Andy Reid era. Coach Reid went 130-93 in 14 years with the Philadelphia Eagles (Pro-Football-Reference.com). He’s undoubtedly one of the better coaches in the NFL, and now he’s got a fresh start in another great football city.

I’ve personally heard that Chiefs fans are the best, and I’m looking forward to seeing it this year at Arrowhead and especially on this site.

Speaking of great fans, we’ve got plenty here at Arrowhead Addict. What else is there to do tonight but watch the Chiefs and talk amongst ourselves, right?

We here at AA have got you covered. If you’re reading this right now, you’re on the live thread. What does that mean? Simply scroll down after reading this and check out the comments section. There I, you’re trusty new editor Andrew Kulha, and the Arrowhead Addict faithful will be conversing about the game.

We’ll break down the plays, react to the action and discuss football. Hasn’t it been long enough?

If you’re a Kansas City Chiefs fan, there’s simply no better place to be outside of Arrowhead stadium itself.

Enjoy, and go Chiefs.

    Game Time!

    • Tim Stocker

      I’m so ready. Am going to listen on Sirius. Not able to watch.

      • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

        Radio is better than nothing.

  • JordanPollock

    It’s been a long time coming!

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Indeed. So excited to see this!

  • Miles Yi

    What’s the first offensive play: a) Jamaal runs; b) Smith to Bowe; or c) Smith to Dexter?! Go Chiefs!!!

    • Lyle Graversen

      Play action pass to Fasano in the flats.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      I am betting on a passing play

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      plat action screen to jamall

      • Lyle Graversen

        no play action, but I still think you win

    • Miles Yi

      All of those answers are sooooo much better than “Cassel hands off to Hillis.”

    • Miles Yi

      Paddy almost nails it with the first play, Lyle totally nails it with the second!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Merlin is in the house! let’s go Chiefs

  • Tim Stocker

    c.

  • Lyle Graversen

    (Please excuse the following use of all caps, which I normally find annoying)

    CHIEFS FOOTBALL IS FINALLY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      whooooo

      • Lyle Graversen

        Come on Paddy, the first game in months warrants some all caps and excessive exclamation points. Let your hair down man!

        • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

          !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Lyle Graversen

            now we’re talking

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Looks like the Chiefs really like Tyler Bray. We might not really have much of a battle at QB

  • chiefridgy

    Oh Baby!!! Here we go!!!
    Go Chiefs!!!!!

  • Dfrey87

    Did they say Houston was hurt and not playing?

  • ladner morse

    Am so excited I could eat a whole box of crayon and not even vomit!

    • Andrew Kulha

      Don’t do that please.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      That’s a mental image I didn’t need! Thanks!

  • Andrew Kulha

    I’m going to be at Kelso’s in North Kansas City if you wanna come and watch the game with me. Come say hey.

  • Andrew Kulha

    That play action has the potential to be great if the Chiefs can develop it. Really like Fasano as a TE think he could be a huge pickup.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    What is this I see. a team wearing Chiefs uni’s moving the ball…… not sure that computes.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Man, this Alex Smith guy throws the ball a lot for a game manager! #sarcasm

  • Andrew Kulha

    Really think Anthony Fasano can be special in this system. Remember, Reid loved to use the TE’s in philly.

    • Lyle Graversen

      The only reason I don’t think his numbers will be huge is because I think Kelce and Moeaki will steal some reps.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Wait for Kelce, I have a good feeling about him.

  • Chris Tarrants

    We didn’t have this many first downs until week 5 of last year lol

  • ladner morse

    Anyone missing Matt Cassel?

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      who?

      • ladner morse

        That was a short honeymoon

    • Lyle Graversen

      His name may have to go the way of the kicker who must not be named.

    • Jim Harper

      Who?

    • Danny W

      I think deep down Micah might be.

      • Jim Harper

        True Danny

    • Troy Utt

      His Mother…

  • Andrew Kulha

    What a difference a coach can make…

  • ladner morse

    Sherman knocked the crap out of NO player in the hole!

    • Lyle Graversen

      I thought the same thing.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    So that was freaking awesome.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m SUPER encouraged by what I just saw………

    However, I remember the opening drive against Arizona in the preseason looking really good last year.

    Cautious optimism is my official stance.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Good point. This feels different, but it’s a good point.

    • Danny W

      I’m the same that looked pretty good. We still have to play defense though too. Last year NO sucked pretty badly.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Yeah it did. But the rest of the preseason was garbage. So we shall see.

  • Miles Yi

    8 passes, 5 runs, 4 different receivers. Loving this!!!

  • ladner morse

    Maybe …Patrick to Andrew…. was the real magic the Chiefs needed!!!!!!

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      That’s so wrong!

      • Andrew Kulha

        No i can’t replace Patrick.

        • Danny W

          Welcome aboard and congrats to you Sir. Big shoes to fill I’m sure you’ll do fine. Or we will get our pitchforks handy mate. ;-)

          • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

            I would mention the tar but the staff is waiting to formally initiate Andrew into the fold. Who was going to bring the feathers?

          • Danny W

            I think Mike G had them last.

        • Lyle Graversen

          He’s kidding of course……..

          (but if we go undefeated and win the Super Bowl you will never be allowed to leave……ever)

          • Danny W

            and he does mean like absolutely never.

    • Danny W

      Here now. Too soon brother.

    • ladner morse

      C’mon now… just joking!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Danny W

        I know buddy.

  • Jared Watson

    Loved that throw to Sherman to the right side. Led him on perfectly and those sideline throws are difficult.

  • Danny W

    What do you know the Chiefs scored a touchdown in the redzone instead of field goal.

  • Andrew Kulha

    Okay, you saw the first offensive drive. What do you think? Super Bowl bound?

    • Danny W

      That’s crazy talk.

      • Andrew Kulha

        I’ve got jokes.

        • Danny W

          Ha since of humor is a big plus.

  • ladner morse

    Wathcing the Defense. This is what I’ve really been wanting to see because I believe this D can be dominant.

    • Danny W

      I’m wondering who will start outside of DJ

  • JordanPollock

    DUDE DEVITO WAS THROUGH

  • Danny W

    Lets see that aggressive blitzing we’ve been waiting for.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Chiefs are going to keep a lot under wraps defensively.

      • Danny W

        I say your right. No since in making too many funky moves known.

  • ladner morse

    Sprouls sprawling!

  • Andrew Kulha

    Think we’ll see a pro bowl season out of Poe. He’ll be an x-factor for that defense.

  • Danny W

    Dontari Poe with some pressure!!!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    that was intentional grounding

    • Danny W

      indeed.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Well this couldn’t be going any better thus far

    • Danny W

      Firing on all phases right now.

  • Danny W

    I have to say the Chiefs look sharp.

  • JordanPollock

    This team is confident.

    • Danny W

      You can tell a difference for sure. More discipline, or confidence or something. I’m not sure what it is. Hopefully it sticks.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    maybe I should buy my chiefs ticket sooner rather than later lol

    • Lyle Graversen

      Browns game is crazy cheap

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        That’s the game I am going to see

        • Lyle Graversen

          I got 50 yard line upper deck seats for $35 a ticket just last week

          • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

            What row?

          • Lyle Graversen

            33, I think

  • ladner morse

    Can you say, Cheifionship!

  • Lyle Graversen

    So much for Smith getting the whole first quarter

    • Danny W

      Yeah Daniel in already. #disappointed.

  • Andrew Kulha

    I hope ya’ll enjoyed Alex Smith.

    • Danny W

      Hopefully we will enjoy knile davis as well.

    • ladner morse

      Yea… you’ve done more than he has today! hehe

  • Danny W

    Succoup with a solid kick. I have to say I’m encouraged.

  • Lyle Graversen

    2nd string D vs Drew Brees, this will test our depth

  • Jim Harper

    AS is the REAL DEAL!

    • Danny W

      Whoa brother. I hope so. One drive worth now.

  • ladner morse

    I can’t wait to see Bray.

  • Danny W

    Drew Brees in against our back ups means they’re gonna score this drive.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Let’s see our 2′s stand up and stuff them.

      • Danny W

        It would be awesome.

    • ladner morse

      What if we do stop him???

      • Danny W

        really encouraging it seems they’re shooting themselves in the foot.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Nico is a guy I really want to see.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    that was offensive PI

  • Andrew Kulha

    Nice to see physical play from Brandon Carr. That’s the type of corner play that will make that front seven very good this season.

    • JordanPollock

      ^?

      • Andrew Kulha

        My bad, old habits die hard. That would be another, NEW 39: Husain Abdullah. Still shaking off that preseason rust

        • JordanPollock

          True true.

    • Chris Tarrants

      Huh?

    • Jared Watson

      Who thumb upped this lol??

  • Andrew Kulha

    Heard some great things about Travis Kelce on the radio before the game. HUGE Tight end at 6’6”, 260 but can also run and stretch the field.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      He could be a 3rd round steal

    • Lyle Graversen

      Really excited to see what he can do. I think we’ll see some 3 TE sets with Kelce, Fasano, and Moeaki that could make for killer play action pass plays.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        Yes, you can use Kelce and Moeaki as either TE’s or split out. You can load up to run or spread out and pass. Tough to defend.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Anthony Toribio playing DE with the 2nd string next to Jerrell Powe at NT.

  • ladner morse

    oooH… Reid did not look happy ending the 1st quarter………. my guess is he’s going after Jalil Brown……

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      If Brown could not play specials he would be unemployed a long time ago.

      • Lyle Graversen

        They were playing Agnew ahead of him the day I was at camp.

      • ladner morse

        Yea… he looks like he’s constantly playing catch-up.

  • Andrew Kulha

    Surprised to see Brees in for Q2. Offense must wanna get a few more reps.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      They want Brees and their 1′s to get a TD, then they get pulled.

      • Andrew Kulha

        yah good call just saw where they are at.

    • ladner morse

      Brees hasn’t looked sharp til this drive.

  • ladner morse

    I count that as a stop.

    • Lyle Graversen

      With the #2 squad vs Brees, that’s not just a stop its a flat out win

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        I am happy with that, expect for Browns’ play and penalty

        • Lyle Graversen

          Hopefully Flowers, Smith, and Robinson stay healthy this year

          • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

            Yes, we don’t have a lot of depth behind them.

          • Lyle Graversen

            I think I’d take Neiko Thorpe over Brown at this point though

          • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

            I would take Jim Thorpe over him too. lol

      • Jim Harper

        Careful Lyle. You are starting to sound not so cautious

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Ugly kick, but it counts

  • Chris Tarrants

    I understand we don’t want an injury but that was a serious c*** tease! I want to see a whole quarter of 1st string offense!!!

    • Andrew Kulha

      Not only are injuries a concern, but every single one of KC”s opponents will be wanting to get a bit of tape on the new offense under Reid. One series, get em off. Keep the opponents guessing.

      • Lyle Graversen

        You’re 100% right, but when you’ve been waiting to see them for months it’s like a sip of water after wondering in the wilderness for days.

        • Chris Tarrants

          Exactly, I want to jump out of my chair screamingat the top of my lungs, making the dog growl and my wife bitch lol but so far Chase has left me saying here we go again

  • ladner morse

    I like Otha Foster. I hope he gets more time and that they get Brown off the field.

    • Lyle Graversen

      Foster, Thorpe, Agnew, I’d rather see any of them.

  • Chris Tarrants

    I hope Bray lights it up because I’m sitting here jonesing for something special and Chase left me feeling a little worried about our backup options

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Chase was locked in on Davis the whole time. Not good.

  • Andrew Kulha

    Daniel looked like he hurt his elbow a bit there.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Chase is not impressing. Anyone know if he is going up against the 1′s or 2′s?

    • Lyle Graversen

      pretty sure this last drive was 2′s

  • Lyle Graversen

    Daniel has not looked good, but the second string line is not looking very good. OL depth is a major concern of mine.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      I agree. Been debating how much to prioritize that on my draft needs for 2014

    • ladner morse

      Agreed. And he didn’t look good at all the day I was at camp. How about the next day Lyle?

      • Lyle Graversen

        Not good, but he didn’t get good protection that day either. Chicken or egg? I’m not sure.

        • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

          You need protection, but I don’t see much moving either to try to get something started.

  • ladner morse

    Clark Hunt had thighs.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      and that hair was…….. lol

      • ladner morse

        … no words…

        • Miles Yi

          and was he wearing some sort of headband or something?!

  • Troy Utt

    Wasn’t surprised to see Reid pull Alex & the first team, after the methodical display they put on! Was pretty much what I expected after seeing them at camp… Just could not get everyone back home to believe everything I told them upon my return! That 1st series was SWEET! WAR CHIEFS!!!

    • Suzi Conger

      Hey Troy, as an X-SF9er, I’ve been posting information to counter the “AS11 Negative Mythology” since March…AReid has coveted AS11 since his Ute days (and is good friends with UMeyer). I am sooo glad AS11 led the offense to a fab opening series, and the D; totally luved the ‘DBees shutdown’!!
      Protect AS11 and the Sky’s the Limit!
      Rock On Chiefs!!

      • Troy Utt

        Hey Suzi… What took you so long? I was impressed!!! Then again… It was pretty much exactly what I expected after spending all that time at camp. During that first drive he pretty much had his way, took what they were giving, recognized, read, & reacted… Everything we need to be successful this season. I have long been a fan of Smith’s, & you can go back in the threads to find that I have lobbied in favor of the AS11 trade even before it happened, often putting myself subject to verbal lashing, & sentence to flogging! Of course those voices are 99% gone now, many have either accepted the fact that Alex is a good QB, others had to be convinced by way of black & white stats…Then of course there is the Geno Smith Camp, there is no way to convince them still. Despite the fact that Geno is losing the QB battle to Sanchez!
        I look forward to next week & the 1′s playing longer!
        WAR CHIEFS!!!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Clark doing what he can to erase the large Pioli stain left.

    • ladner morse

      So far so good.

    • Lyle Graversen

      Clark deserves his share of blame for how bad things got but also deserves credit for what he’s done to try and fix it.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Note to TV crew, never use the term ‘it’s a process’

    • Lyle Graversen

      *shudders*

      • Chris Tarrants

        If you want to shutter you must put in a written request now go find a candy wrapper to pick up

        • Lyle Graversen

          If I find one, does that make me part of the “Right 53″?

    • ladner morse

      Bad things TV crews say… now there’s a good post topic.

  • Lyle Graversen

    I really want Wylie to do well, but would it be fair to say that he’s yet to show anything to validate where we took him last year?

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Quick pole. Does Baldwin A] become a good WR b] hang around the roster this year but not start or C] not make the team at all.

    • Lyle Graversen

      Put me down for B

    • Miles Yi

      I concur: a solid B. Does he have any trade value at all?

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        I would doubt it.

      • Chris Tarrants

        Value of another fullback but if they add a hamburger also it could get Reid’s attention

        • Miles Yi

          that’s funny. so then, Baldwin + Oklahoma Joe’s = Calvin Johnson.

    • Chris Tarrants

      Put me down for an A !!! I still have faith in the kid. At the end of this year with Smith and Reid’s help he still doesn’t get it then cut bait! But he deserves the benefit of a doubt just because of the last powers that be didn’t know their ass from their elbow

  • Jared Watson

    Ok Chase, do something that will conjure inspiration.

  • Andrew Kulha

    Thoughts on Knile Davis. Ready, set, go.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Ugh so far for me.

    • Lyle Graversen

      Looks good in the open field, but can he get himself in the open field? Not sure

    • Chris Tarrants

      Stage freight?

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      needs to work on his vision. It will come.

    • ladner morse

      Want to Knile more with the #1s. I think he’s gonna be really good.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Depth on D definitely looks better than the depth on O at this point

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      The O-line is so poor right now, hard to evaluate anyone else on O

      • Lyle Graversen

        Poor Bray and Stanzi, what will the third string line look like?

        • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

          *shudder*

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Nice to see some decent tackling from our 2′s

  • steve james

    In San Antonio at the room not driving any where. Smarter than that. Houston on no Chiefs:( Paid for the NFL preseason for my Nexus 7 & it wouldn’t stream! Just the audio. Kept killing the app & restart it. Finally got it streaming but missed the whole first quarter! So pissed! Did Alex look good?

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      He looked very, very good

      • steve james

        Thanks guys! So pumped right now & can’t wait to get home & watch the game again on my DVR. Pulling for Tyson Hartman seems to be getting better every year.

    • Lyle Graversen

      only incomplete pass was a throw away, led an easy TD drive.

  • Vaughn Morris

    wtf b carr

  • Andrew Kulha

    For the record, Alex Smith went 7/8 for 68 yards. #Chiefs

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Nice to see our corners being tested.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Toribio, Powe, and Bailey have really overpowered the 2nd string NO OL.

    • Danny W

      Powe just made a tackle way down field.

      • Lyle Graversen

        All the good NO runs that drive went at the OLBs who weren’t setting the edge very well. The interior was stout the whole time.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Nice to see Nice taking charge of the defense.

  • Lyle Graversen

    My early take on Daniel is that he can be effective throwing short to intermediate routes if he has good protection. The problem is that when the pocket breaks down he looks a lot like the QBs we’ve seen in KC the past two seasons.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Not sure I feel comfortable with Chase right now.

      • ladner morse

        Let’s say Chase doesn’t look good at all this off season… what would you do?

        • Jared Watson

          Play Alex Smith definatly

        • tm1946

          Hope Smith stays healthy

        • Danny W

          See if we can coax David Gerrard out of retirement.

        • Lyle Graversen

          I wouldn’t do anything. If Alex Smith goes down we aren’t making the playoffs. So at that point throw Bray out there and let’s see what happens.

    • tm1946

      Did notice QBs actually hit guys around their numbers. looked strange after all those passes in the dirt or over their heads.

    • steve james

      So far I am not worried about Chase. Impressed with the time he has had from the 2′s he has made good calls from what I have seen. The test will work out if he is called to the first team.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Looked a lot like Cassel in the pocket. Interested to see Bray

  • Lyle Graversen

    Is there a way to turn off the Disqus emails for every time someone replies to you? Game day threads are going to make a mess of my inbox.

    • ladner morse

      You have to go to your Disqus acount to do it.

      • Lyle Graversen

        Found it, thanks Laddie!

        • ladner morse

          Cool.

    • Chris Tarrants

      Well until you figure it out, here have another ;)

      • Lyle Graversen

        nice

  • steve james

    I am not down on Daniels. I think he looks like a legitimate number 2. Happy so far.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Daniel reminds me of Cassel

  • Lyle Graversen

    Something to note, #54 Zac Diles has been around the ball on every single special teams kick coverage play I’ve seen. Good way to win a spot as a #2 LB.

  • Andrew Kulha

    Relevant first half stats:

    9 first downs, 131 total yards, Possession: 13:56, 164 yards and 11 first downs allowed,

    • Andrew Kulha

      Check that, 163 yards allowed.

    • Lyle Graversen

      I think the numbers are a little misleading due to Brees getting extended snaps against our 2′s.

  • Chris Tarrants

    My take from first half is that we do have quality depth on defense but offensive line is thin and Chase, Davis and the second string db’s need to show something in the next few games

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      I think that’s pretty spot on.

      • Lyle Graversen

        agreed

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      I thought Nico did some nice things but the D line was getting pushed around.

      • Lyle Graversen

        I disagree, I thought the DL did well but the 2nd string OLBs couldn’t hold the edge at all.

  • Chris Tarrants

    This just in Matt Cassel with a 61 yard td pass! Watch that turd take the starting job away from Ponder and drag the Vikings even further into obscurity

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      lol. Good for Matt. I am rooting for him

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Was that a 5 yard pass and a 56 yard run?

      • Lyle Graversen

        funny, that’s exactly what I thought

      • Chris Tarrants

        Hahaha I just heard it on the radio but probably a dump off or a bobbled int that the wideout took away from the safety

  • Jim Harper

    Our starters looked awesome, but the backups need lots of work.Jalil Brown is playing like he always does – horrible. Nico Johnson got lots of work and I think he may get the starting job. Now I am anxious to see Bray in action! But believe this addicts. Our new Chiefs are as advertised!

    • Chris Tarrants

      If Bray plays mistake free he could take the backup job away from Daniel because I not impressed with him so far

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Time for some Tyler Bray

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      I am very curious about him

    • ladner morse

      Let’s Cele-BRAY-te

  • Lyle Graversen

    I think a 60 yard Bray to Rico Richardson TD pass would make me as happy as any 2nd half preseason play in the history of football.

  • Chris Tarrants

    I hope Lemon makes some noise!

  • Lyle Graversen

    Lane getting good pressure, Agnew getting worked over right now

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    This is another nice test. their 2′s against our 3′s

    • Chris Tarrants

      Any db who gets a pick here should get a spot no matter what lol

  • Justin R Groth

    How bout lane?

    • Lyle Graversen

      Great guy, works his butt off, good pass rush DL, worry about his ability to hold up in the run game.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I don’t care with the score is, the Chiefs won the important part of the game.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Overall I’m really happy with what John Dorsey has done as GM, but watching these back up CBs brings the Arenas for a FB trade into question.

  • ladner morse

    New name: Agnude. Being undressed.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Is that better or worse than being Browned?

      • ladner morse

        Wouldn’t surprise me if both are hobos by Wed.

        • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

          Brown is very good on specials. I just don’t want to see him on defense

    • Chris Tarrants

      Yeah he will be looking for work sometime early Tuesday

    • Lyle Graversen

      Even scarier, I watched Agnew shut down Baldwin on a few plays at camp….sigh

  • steve james

    I can’t tell you enough ho much I enjoy Trent Green. He knew WS his stiff.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Safe to say Agnew won’t be making the team.

    • CuetheChief

      Indeed, he is getting picked on so bad in week one that he will not even make it to week two of the preseason

  • Chris Tarrants

    Ok was that gutsy or stupidity? He got away with it but hopefully we never see him bring out a kick from 9 yards deep again

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      He is trying to make a play to make the team. You don’t make the team taking a knee in the endzone.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Let’s see some Rico action!

  • Danny W

    Draughn is better than knile davis.

  • ladner morse

    Bray to Kelce. Are we seeing the future?

  • Lyle Graversen

    Okay, enough rotating undrafted OL guys on and off the roster. Time to go out and sign a vet with playing experience. This line depth is awful.

    • Danny W

      Good thing we have Albert and Fisher to start.

      • Lyle Graversen

        and their best backup Stephenson is out this game, he’s looked good in camp. I’m worried about the interior depth.

        • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

          Stephenson and Schwartz should be OK. After that I worry

          • Lyle Graversen

            It probably comes down to what they think of Kush. I’m guessing they’ll carry 8 OL. Albert, Allen, Hudson, Asamoah, Fisher, Stephenson, Schwartz, and then ?????? I haven’t seen anybody else that deserves to be on a NFL roster at this point.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Yeah. bray needs to have better awareness but that RT got smoked.

    • ladner morse

      I hear Brian Waters is available. For big bucks.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Hurry back, Donald Stephenson

  • steve james

    Dam just gonna say that I’m happy with Bray. Opps.

  • Lyle Graversen

    That was a Tyler Palko like pass by McCown

  • Chris Tarrants

    Ok I really hope to see Bray get a shot at playing behind the starting line this preseason

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Nice zone coverage by Harrtman.

  • steve james

    Woo woop Tyson!

  • ladner morse

    Have to learn you must convert TOs to points.

  • Chris Tarrants

    It’s going from bad to worse, we haven’t even made it to the fourth string yet! Need some serious fine tuning next week

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Agnew… I hear sears is hiring.

    • Chris Tarrants

      I think Sears demands an aptitude test. Maybe Walmart

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Feel bad for the guy. Got to be really hard to be getting worked over like that.

      • steve james

        Exactly painful to watch.

      • Chris Tarrants

        At some point he has to put his big boy pants on and do what your paid to do, this is rediculous! I’m not asking for Ty Law like results but come on

  • ladner morse

    I like NOs game plan. Go long… then… go long. Wish we’d give that try.

  • ladner morse

    Agnew’s from Central Mich. like Fisher, right?

  • steve james

    Man. They think Agnew s Shi*

  • Chris Tarrants

    I hate to say this but this reminds me of last year!

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Don’t worry too much. Pretty much none of the guys currently on the field are even going to make the team.

      • Chris Tarrants

        That actually made me breathe deep and relax! Thank you.

        • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

          No worries.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Here is a not unexpected game note from the Pats game:

    With 1:22 left in the second quarter of the Patriots-Eagles
    preseason game, New England backup quarterback Josh Mallett was driven
    into the ground and had to leave the game following the injury timeout.

    That meant it was, good god (!!!), Tim Tebow time.

    And he didn’t disappoint in his Patriots debut.

    He badly missed receiver Aaron Dobson in the left flat on his first pass, he led tight end Zach Sudfeld just a little too much on his second attempt, and on his third snap, Tebow was sacked by about three Philadelphia defenders.It was completely expected. And it was quite a show.

  • Lyle Graversen

    I repeat Knile Davis is great in the open field. I’m just not sure he can get in the open field consistently.

    • ladner morse

      He made me smile. I like to smile.

      • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

        Amen

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      He needs to work on his field vision a little but what rookie runner doesn’t? He also tends to lean forward a bit which I think could make him a little more off balance than he needs to be. Made some nice moves there and some nice cuts. Raw but talented.

  • steve james

    Davis!

  • Da Menace

    Ridiculous 17 unanswered points…

  • Lyle Graversen

    Kelce! Got to get that!

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Ah Kelce just dropped a TD

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Yep Wylie was open.

  • Lyle Graversen

    I hope they give Bray one more drive. Also, let’s get Rico on the field!

  • ladner morse

    How about practicing an on side kick?

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Offensive play calling has been really vanilla since Smith left the game.

    • ladner morse

      More like lemon flavored.

      • sidibeke

        Ooh. Lemon gelato…my favorite.

    • Chris Tarrants

      Sadly it’s more like French vanilla compared to last years play calling

  • ladner morse

    I want to see the Chiefs WIN this game.

    • Lyle Graversen

      Looks like it will have to be Stanzi that gets it done.

      • Chris Tarrants

        Not even joking, I read that post and on command my dog farted and if that was a sign then don’t get your hopes up lol

      • ladner morse

        If he does… then does that move him ahead of Bray?

  • Chris Tarrants

    So Mr Allen do we get your feedback on game days? Or is this just your excitement boiling over for the first game?

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      I will always be around in the chat on game day!

      • Chris Tarrants

        Sweet!

      • steve james

        I know you will!

      • sidibeke

        Good to hear. Congratulations on the promotion, and I’ll miss your daily posts. I started reading AA a couple of years ago now; it was the only place I could find info on the Chiefs OC hiring after Weiss left…Okay so the OC hire didn’t work out but I’ve been a daily reader ever since. Great work and the promotion is well earned.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Rico was hit early

    • Lyle Graversen

      yup

  • Chris Tarrants

    3rd and 18 and a screen? We fired Daboll WTH

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Chiefs aren’t pushing the ball down field at all. Not sure if it is the offensive play calling, the receivers suck and aren’t getting open or the QBs. No way to know for sure.

    • Lyle Graversen

      Hard to call plays downfield with bad OL play. Five step drop and someone is already chasing you.

  • Chris Tarrants

    Close to a flag there but I live a good pop

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Yeah he is lucky he didn’t get nailed. Don’t think he was head hunting but regular season you will see that get called

  • CuetheChief

    The drop off after the 1st team on both sides is far greater for us then the Saints as seen by the appearance of one player…. Agnew

    • chiefridgy

      Agnew stunk up the field.

  • Lyle Graversen

    TAKE THE TOUCHBACK!!!!!!!!

    • ladner morse

      Somehow, someway… stupid players still end up on the Chiefs roster!

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      This happens every preseason with a young guy thinking he can take it to the house.

  • Chris Tarrants

    Justin beiber just scrambled for a first down!

  • Lyle Graversen

    So close Rico!

  • ladner morse

    SOS- Same Ole Stanzi

    • Jim Harper

      Go Sunshine Go!

  • Chris Tarrants

    What’s the word on Commings? Done for the year or are they going to attempt to bring him back? We need DB help and hopefully Hemmingway comes back and grabs a WR spot!

    • Lyle Graversen

      I think there’s a chance Commings comes back during the season.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        He would be so far behind though. I am not expecting much from him this year, even if he comes back.

      • Jim Harper

        I think that’s right Lyle otherwise they would have gone on IR.

  • Jim Harper

    It doesn’t seem to matter what game you are watching, but after the 2nd and 3rd teamers get in the game it becomes very hard to watch. The Saints picked on Agnew without mercy, but his coverage was pretty good despite the completions. They should have done something to give him so help like a linebacker underneath.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Rico time!

    • Lyle Graversen

      Would love to see him with some playing time with better players around him.

      • Jim Harper

        Me too

  • steve james

    Go Rico

  • steve james

    I think Stanzi looks OK. He will play for somebody. I think Bray gets the nod.

    • Lyle Graversen

      He did look better than last year.

    • Jim Harper

      Yeah. the Titans

  • Lyle Graversen

    Time to flip over for the end of the Royals game. Good night all, the first string sure looked good.

  • Jim Harper

    We got a great idea as to how much Jamaal is going to touch the ball. – Lots

  • BWrangler

    My thoughts from the game: Alex is the QB we’ve needed for a while; JC is going to give DCs fits this year; DMC will have an impact on this offense; the front seven on D will be good to go: the secondary is still suspect. God help us if the first team gets hurt.
