Coffee with the Chiefs – Two-minute drill?


Good morning, Addicts! You know what day it is… HUMP DAYYYYY. The Kansas City Chiefs are in the second day of their third and final OTA session, which runs through the end of the work week.

We have already seen an interesting development with Aaron Murray taking the bulk of the second-string snaps at quarterback behind sure starter Alex Smith. If Murray is taking all of those important reps, why did head coach Andy Reid all but declare Tyler Bray as the heir to Chase Daniel’s throne?

The Chiefs are clearly gearing up for a quarterback competition at the backup spot between Murray and Bray, and perhaps even rookie Kevin Hogan. My two cents? Let the guys get out there and sling the damn thing. Figure it out from there.

Here is the news you need to know…

Chiefs seeking better results in two-minute drillAdam Teicher of ESPN

"The Chiefs could use the work. The Chiefs were one of the worst two-minute offensive teams in the league last season. They took possession with two minutes or less remaining in a half 20 times, which was tied for 23rd-most in the league. They scored one touchdown and kicked one field goal."

Will the offensive line drag down Kansas City?Adam Teicher of ESPN

"PFF ranked NFL teams in each of the past two years. The Chiefs in 2014 were 10th and wound up 9-7 and missing the playoffs. They were 19th last year but finished 11-5 and reached the postseason as a wild-card team."

Mike DeVito says he knew Jaye Howard would take his jobJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"Howard is back this year but Mike DeVito is not. The former Chiefs defensive lineman has retired but he recently spoke to Sirius XM NFL Radio about Howard and it was interesting to see how early DeVito knew Howard would be a player."
