Adjectives To Describe Chiefs Through Week 5

3 of 5


By definition, exuberance is being joyously unrestrained, or enthusiastic. The Chiefs so far been just that. The whole team has been playing with a lot of enthusiasm. Believe it or not, they want to win too and they have fun doing it. Specifically I want to look at two players who have had quite a joyous affect on the rest of the team so far.

Travis Kelce: Even though Kelce is a tight-end, that hasn’t stopped him from being the Chief’s leading receiver through the first five games. He has proven himself a huge asset for the Chiefs so far and I don’t doubt that he will continue to do the same after the bye week. Nothing is more exciting than watching a player make a big play, and Kelce delivers that big play potential. Plus, he’s got some great end-zone moves. He’s like a younger, football playing, John Travolta.

Sean Smith: I was never a huge fan of Sean Smith, mostly because I hadn’t heard of him until the Chiefs traded the Dolphins for him and Fasano. Even last year I had my doubts about him though. He just didn’t seem to be a part of big plays unless they were for the other team. However, this year we’ve seen a new man emerge from the shadow of his former self.

This new and improved Sean Smith has looked really good, and he’s had fun doing it. Smith has been seen this year getting excited about big plays made by himself and his teammates, joking around with fans, and doing some corny dance moves. He looks like a guy that’s really just having a lot of fun playing the sport that he loves to play, and he’s done a great job energizing the guys around him in the process.
