Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes, Terrell Davis discussed on First Things First


Three. There's nothing you can do is just talk about how the run game affects the opposite side of the ball. The defense is the beautiful thing about having a solid run game like the forty nine actually do have control the clock. You you control the clock. You keep Patrick. Veteran homes on the sideline you force them to make throws make foot pressure on office to score points. Because that's what they're doing so when you slow that down the rhythm them if you can keep them out of the rhythm lies we see them. Start Games very slow. Keep them out of the rhythm. You can take advantage of those things and one thing about cal. Shanahan and their running game is as liked Davis back in the day they ran that bogged down. Everybody's throat with all cows are running back so before nine has got a very good chance. Well what makes the chiefs chiefs chiefs for a second so so dangerous. So dynamic is they've got two big offensive weapons entire and Travis Kelsey. Who is very comfortable going to you? Had that with you and Michael Irvin. How much easier is it when you have both weapons playing at the same time for an offense? I think it creates a lot of matchup. The issues and achieves go live young Patrick mahomes along with Tara and Kelsey they have to other Sammy. Bacteria and chanted got some other guys. But don't forget we get those two running backs that they actually have everybody's slipping I mean everybody's all caught up in all the fast things that you see. It's those two running backs in the backfield heads and passes out of the backfield. Those guys miss one. Oh one here near that can make a difference for the chiefs and so their running game is going to be very very important this weekend. As well as the Ford announced in this game I think for most people base level analysis is the chiefs passing attack against the niners pass rush. So that that's a ostensibly removes the running backs from. But when you think about how the chiefs can offset the niners pass rush. It's screen game right right keeping a running back in for protection when you're playing a team with as good of a pass rush as the niners have what. Walk us through your job whether you're going to receive a pass for whether you gotta deal with the blitzing linebacker and you're dealing with the bliss allowed allow back in your face. We know what we have to do is mono mono we gotta do that. We gotTA stop that. The second part is when I'm going out for pass route. I gotTA help my my left tackle right right tackle because as you know those two hands are coming and they don't come hard so I would tell my left tackle set inside for some outside that me get a shipowner's ribcage so I can slow him now and give you a chance to get your hands back on them. That's the way mark to an anti used to work on the airwaves of the same way if I'm going in between a lot Discriminates then it's the same lose inside. Let me bump them a little bit. DISA- slow him down. So I can add another one or two seconds for the quarterback they have time to throw the ball downfield when most of all three of them carried a Lo. You've got devolved. Twenty five thirty times go to eight handed off. Hand it off handed but you were one man show. As far as running the football. The forty eighty nine are doing it more of a running back by committee. How much harder is it for all those guys to try to get rid of the game by by coming in and out of the game the way that they do one thing about his own offense when when you have a zone running game at as I've seen in my past with Terrell Davis and you know all the guys that they had up running for hundreds and thousands of yards? Awards is that you could do that. These guys are trained to Ron Zone. Run and scheme and they do a very good job of doing. A lot of backs are very good at running on his own ski. I was never good running zone. Black zone run esteemed so but I was down here running so but these guys are very skilled at doing it very patient. They they set it up. Whether you fall inside Abou- sit outside. I'll make you wrong no matter what you try to do. And that's what these guys are doing that so I think for Far As vanished goes both for these teams to run a ball fairly well and they got very good backs and I'm I'm watching them. Learning a lot about 'em enough seeing them do their thing. They've both both teams are very have their skill view bets. We've been talking to so many players this week about the right things to do this week. especially if you're a player getting ready for the game we had some fun. We poke some fun at the forty niners. Who went out hard? I think Monday night. Nose Day nine listen. They said they didn't drink whatever they WANNA do. My question to you is just. What's the week like what would you wh- wh- you've been there a couple of times you've done it a couple times? What did you learn from the first time or the second time as a player getting ready for Sunday? Maybe that could help you go into. That was the absolute flu worse because nobody anxiety and all those things not knowing what to do and how to prepare not knowing if you actually doing the right thing not because you try to treat needed as normal year coach and say this is normal word. Noah's not nothing normal body because most people are planning for Super Bowl all excited and everything so not to mention you hear Miami. Hi Amy so you go out and party. I think he's just baked baked into that's normal. Living Your Third Super Bowl. Aw You guys you guys had some fun. The week leading up to it. What a Solo Monday through Wednesday party hard enjoy the hard times so every week is a curve every day for the cowboys won? One o'clock late at twelve one o'clock and then there's the week as we got the Thursday Friday and got closer and closer to like eleven o'clock and so right now teams are starting to tighten up the reigns. Guys should would probably stop drinking. START DRINKING A lot. More fluid star getting off. They feet star relaxed a little bit more zone in which you need to do without doing it too soon. Because you thinking about the game too much it wears you out emmy. Where's your you gonNA come out on the football field before Kiko completely wore out just doing Detroit distort warm-ups yep kind of balance it all and you playing multiple roles you understand that multiple super bowl? I gotTa have the experience of being Myers understand how to deal with your coach for the first two of those super bowls. Our colleague Fox obviously a couple of weeks ago really awesome moment home. It live on the air finds out. He gets long-overdue into the hall of fame. I know you've talked about it but I wanted to share with us. How that moment resonated with you with Jimmy Johnson in getting our so happy for Jimmy because Jimmy definitely deserves it? Even though I mean he had such an impact on the game early on and the impact on Dallas cowboys. And I turn around early on and to see him. Be awarded with this opportunity to become join players is that he has coach. Herb and myself. Aikman Haley Larry Allen and other great players that are all in coaches at all in the hall of claimed a wonderful thing and so I'm happy for my codes. He's one of the best coaches ever play for There's no comparison.
