Coffee with the Chiefs – Looking at snap counts


Good morning, Addicts! Hopefully you enjoyed your Saturday, basking in another Kansas City Chiefs win. A majority of the National Football League was in action yesterday throughout the afternoon and night, and it was interesting to watch. The two things that stood out to me? The Pittsburgh Steelers on defense and Peyton Manning. Pittsburgh will need to score 30 points to have any hope of winning while Manning’s arm is seriously lacking.

Alright, onto the news you need to know.

Snap counts from the Chiefs win over the TitansAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Aaron Murray 31, Alex Smith 28. Did not play: Chase Daniel, Tyler Bray. The Chiefs got a long look at Murray, including some time in the second quarter with the starters. But the quarterback depth chart hasn’t changed."

Kansas City could dream big with major passing attackAdam Teicher of ESPN

"There’s no denying the Chiefs look good armed with a big-play passing attack. We already know they’ll be well coached, they’ll run the ball well when Jamaal Charles is in their lineup, they’ll play good defense at least against the pass and they’ll be strong on special teams."

Fred Williams really making a strong case for Chiefs’ rosterJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"His main competition appears to be Frankie Hammond. I was giving Hammond the slight nod because he was returning punts with De’Anthony Thomas out and if the battle was close enough then that extra thing for Hammond would make a difference. But Williams is catching everything. He has strong hands, a tendency to flash open for the quarterback and a strong touchdown dance game."

Kansas City’s offense looked sublime on Friday nightBlair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star

The Titans had no sacks or tackles for loss, which means the Chiefs never went backwards. The offensive line, which throughout the preseason has worked without two who probably will open the season as starters, had its best game to date.
