Coffee with the Chiefs – What could go wrong?


Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs have finished up their second OTA session with one more remaining, coming next week. So far we are through six practices and nobody has gotten hurt, save for Jeremy Maclin and his slightly tweaked ankle (which he has already recovered from).

It should be interesting to see what starting offensive line combinations Andy Reid can come up with over the next two weeks, making us all go crazy for the best five. Also, who will step up in the battle for the second receiver spot? Can Albert Wilson hold off a group featuring Chris Conley, Demarcus Robinson, Rod Streater and others?

Here is the news you need to know…

A worst-case scenario for the Kansas City Chiefs’ offenseMatt Conner of Arrowhead Pride

"The Chiefs offense was a limited offense last season. Without Charles, the Chiefs just couldn’t move the chains like they should have. If Charles remains healthy and returns to form, then losing Maclin might not hinder the passing game like you think. Over the long haul, however, the loss of Maclin would really complicate things."

Chiefs believe they might have next Devin Hester in Tyreek HillAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Hill has proved to the Chiefs repeatedly on the practice field that he’s fast. He was timed at 4.25 seconds in 40 yards at his pro day in preparing for the draft, and that seems legitimate based on the way he’s run when he’s gotten into the open field at practice."

Former Browns coach Mike Pettine observed two Chiefs practices Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star

"Reid said he knew Pettine from his days as the Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach, as Pettine served as the head coach at North Penn High School from 1997 to 2001, which went 45-15 under his leadership."
