Coffee with the Chiefs – Marcus Peters looks great


Good morning, Addicts! It’s Thursday, which means we are almost to the weekend and with that, the first football action of the year at Arrowhead Stadium. On Friday night, the Kansas City Chiefs will host the Seattle Seahawks in their second preseason game after beating the Arizona Cardinals 34-19 on Saturday. In the meantime, the Chiefs get to rest on Thursday, so it is a perfect time to catch up on the news you need to know.

Emmitt Thomas feels great about Marcus Peters‘ – Adam Teicher of ESPN

"The Chiefs haven’t had a player among the league leaders in interceptions in years. They haven’t had a player with more than four interceptions since Brandon Flowers had five in 2009. The team record for a season is held by Thomas, who had 12 in 1974."

Andy Reid was sending a message with long bomb on first playAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Alex Smith typically gets a list of plays the Kansas City Chiefs will run during their preseason games a day or two ahead of time. But coach Andy Reid tipped the quarterback early on the play they would use to open the preseason last week against the Cardinals in Arizona."

Kansas City has a trio of great value playersAdam Teicher of ESPN

"The key to all three selections is not just the talent of the players, but their relatively low cost against the salary cap. Kelce, who caught 67 passes last year in his first full NFL season, is costing the Chiefs less than $1 million against their cap. He’s a great value."

What did the Chiefs learn about themselves at St. Joe’s?Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star

"When camp opened the starting line from left to right consisted of Eric Fisher, Ben Grubbs, Eric Kush, Jeff Allen and Donald Stephenson. That lasted a week. Out went Kush, Allen and Stephenson and in came rookie Mitch Morse at center, Zach Fulton at guard and Allen at right tackle."

"In a team-high 48 plays, Moses racked up four tackles, including two for loss. Pro Football Focus also credited him with five quarterback hurries — no one else on either team had more than three — and one quarterback hit."

"Let’s talk about Morse first. Of the three, I’d say he shows the most power when he’s got his feet under him. On several pass blocking plays he was able to re-anchor against a bull rush and halt the defender’s progress forward. He needs to work on his footwork, as it gets him in trouble at times."
