The receiver corps is already better with Rod Streater in the fold
Midway through the second quarter, Tyler Bray made a quality, back shoulder throw to Rod Streater on the far sideline. Tharold Simon had excellent coverage on the play, but Streater managed to haul it in anyway while torquing his body and falling away from the football.
Somehow, he was still able to secure the football and get both feet down in bounds. It was only one catch, but name another Chiefs receiver — not named Jeremy Maclin — who you trust to make the same catch in that situation? I thought so.
Dee Ford may struggle in 2016, but not like you think
The biggest question surrounding third-year man Dee Ford is whether or not he’ll ever live up to his draft potential. Though, I think if you asked most of Chiefs Kingdom, they’re most curious about whether or not Ford can be the reliable pass rusher that Tamba Hali and Justin Houston have been over the years.
That said, even the average fan would likely admit that the outside linebacker position is also responsible for setting the edge and being a dependable run defender. It’s there where the former Auburn Tiger may find his toughest challenge at this level. There were a pair of plays where he was either sucked inside or beaten to the edge by a running back. He’s still a work in progress.
