Last week, Sean McGrath made a huge impact in the Chiefs 31-7 victory over the visiting New York Giants catching 5 passes for 65 yards and his first career touchdown. This week the Chiefs head to Tennessee to take on the emerging Titans, and if the Chiefs want to walk away with the victory on the road, they need to get this once third string tight end involved.
Alex Smith loves throwing to tight ends, that was evident in his time in San Francisco as he and Vernon Davis had a special chemistry. So far for the season McGrath has been targeted 13 times catching 11 of the passes thrown his way. With the Anthony Fasano and Travis Kelce out Smith is looking for “The Beard” on key downs and should continue that chemistry into this weekend. McGrath is a big target for Smith at six foot five, and since he has shown he has sure hands he will receive plenty of looks from his quarterback.
He also has the advantage of being in a offense that spreads the ball around. Jamaal Charles, Dwayne Bowe, Dexter McCluster, are all great on the outside and with those players being covered that will leave “The Beard” open for plays. While Tennessee’s defense is much improved they will have their hands full with KC’s receiving corp, leaving players open for plays down the field and one of the players they will need to account for is Sean McGrath, “The Beard”.
What do you think Addicts? Will “The Beard” be a big part of this passing offense this weekend? Comment below and, Go Chiefs!
