Coffee with the Chiefs – Offensive line in flux


Good morning, Addicts! Let’s go around the web and find anything and everything of importance on the Kansas City Chiefs. There is some good material out there, especially concerning the offensive side of the ball. Alright, have at it.

Offensive line could go in any directionJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"From Jeff Allen to Zach Fulton to Mitch Morse to Paul Fanaika, the Chiefs right guard position appears to be wide open right now. Jeff Allen started and ended the offseason at right guard so if there is a leader in this then it would have to be him. But Fulton started at right guard for 16 games last year. Morse was a second round pick. Fanaika is here on a multi-year deal."

"But vision is absolutely, positively the most important thing a runner can possess. Everyone loves Marshawn Lynch’s ability to destroy tacklers, but his superb vision (on par with Jamaal’s) is what makes him an elite runner. The ability to know where to run to put stress on a defense gives the runner something close to a head start."

"The talented, but often maligned, quarterback signed a huge contract last season, and there is some talk of his restructuring it with the news of star linebacker Justin Houston holding out."

De’Anthony Thomas has potential at receiverNicole Feyh of Pro Football Spot

"Thomas made a splash in his rookie season as a player most teams did not dare overlook, but a hamstring injury during the first four weeks seemed to hold him back from expectations. Touting the running back/wide receiver title also seemed to solidify that a player as dynamic as the Black Mamba should be heralded as more than just a utility player."
