Podcast: Chiefs win, Smith and offense thrive; what’s next?


The Chiefs won again in the preseason, but the real focus from the third game revolves around the year’s best showing from the first-team offense.

On this episode of the Roughing the Kicker Chiefs podcast, Joshua Brisco breaks down the Chiefs preseason victory over the Tennessee Titans, highlighted by an extremely efficient showing from the first-team offense. Also highlighted in the game: a look at Aaron Murray, an attempt to get Chris Conley up to speed, another look at a not-ideal offensive line, another push by Fred Williams for the final wide receiver spot on the roster. Plus, a look at the Chiefs early roster cuts, a prediction for Marcus Cooper’s rookie season, another prediction for the Chiefs defense, and much more.

Welcome to a world where Gil Brandt is picking Marcus Cooper as

the favorite to win defensive rookie of the year

, The MMQB’s Robert Klemko says the Chiefs

might have the best defense in the league

, Alex Smith looks sharp (in the preseason) and Jeremy Maclin looks like a true number one WR.

No, I’m not entirely on cloud nine with this Chiefs team, but it’s getting easier to see how they take this division. Contributing the issue standing between KC and the AFC West crown is the Denver Broncos, who scooped up the apple of many Chiefs’ fans eyes: Evan Mathis.

Hear a breakdown of all of those topics and much more on this episode of RTK.
