Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning, and especially in the middle of the afternoon when things are starting to drag. Here at Arrowhead Addict, we understand that for a Chiefs fan, coffee is simply not enough.
Here’s all that’s happening around Chiefs Kingdom today.
Welcome to The Fix.
–Happy Red Friday. Happy Red 7-0 going on 8-0 Friday. Need I say more?
–Cleveland Browns wide receiver Travis Benjamin is a kick returner worthy of special teams coordinator Dave Toub’s attention. Benjamin is fast and is a great kick returner, especially in regard to punts. He’s taken back one punt return for a touchdown this season, and has accumulated 246 punt return yards on 20 attempts.
Toub recently spoke highly of Benjamin, according to Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com:
“Yeah, he’s very, very good,” Toub said. “He gets to the edge, when you don’t think he’s going to get it. Guys think they have the angle on him, but he can still get there. We definitely have our hands full. We have to be good. We have to have good punts. We have to have a real good net, which is our coverage, make sure everyone stays in the proper position. We have to fly to the ball, otherwise this guy will hurt you.”
–The Chiefs offensive line has struggled at times, but if you watch closely, there has been improvement. Jeff Allen’s thoughts on the matter are as follows, per Ferrin’s report:
“We’ve progressed each week,” Allen said. “Coming into the season, we were a young unit, so each game was an experience for us. We’re gaining that experience and that confidence week in and week out. We’re getting better and that’s all we can ask for.”
–Finally, coach Bob Sutton addressed the media and broke down Cleveland’s starting quarterback Jason Campbell:
“The players have played against him, so they know Jason (Campbell), coach Sutton said. “They have been on the field with him; they know how fast the ball comes out and the velocity of the ball. Last week, hardly anybody had seen Keenum before, so they were looking at film, like us, for the very first time. Until you get used to a guy like that and how he releases the ball and what he can do, it makes it a little more challenging. Our guys have played against him, most of our coaches have coached against him. Our reference point is a lot better and a lot easier in that regard.”
Campbell was given the nod over Brandon Weeden.
