"Both of those guys solid individual de la cruz. Jones been getting it done for years. Alex okafor june. Read the defensive line salad so when you good at all levels offense defense. The coached All right shots to Is just. They're in a situation to not have to be beaten now. Going back to my idea of keeping your head down. His can't beat yourself. You've done it a couple of times last year. We watched it happened once for sure. Maybe twice But kansas city based on what you have from literally all players special teams offense defense coaching. He should lose. Shouldn't i got a true Candy fan and i mean he would definitely probably argued at himself agree with that himself. A matter of fact you probably saying. I'm i'm not even talking about them in the best way that he would appreciate. But hey it's not. His shows mar all right so looking at the offensive. I mean looking. At the kansas city chiefs as team to be beaten in this division was still keeping the storyline. You know intact of you. Know the they're the villages here there the villains if any other teams division go get him. Go beat them now. This one is a little tricky as far as how. I think this is going to play out. This season on who i think is going to basically be two three or four. Because i was the number one is kansas city Because i can make an argument for why out any of these teams could be anywhere but based off. What i've seen last year based off what i've seen this off season. I'm going to go in this. One is going to be tentative on coaching depending on the coaching staff. Because it's new coach. I don't know how he's gonna do. But the chargers should be number two. It became city one charges to and denver. Do not get a new quarterback so going off. We'll be right now. They do not get a new quarterback. It'd be vegas three denver. Four vegas gets a new quarterback especially era actress. They shoot up to as high as number two. They're gonna go to one. Although some people say there is. I believe. I believe there is right now. To how many games. I forgot how many games do under but i think they said if they were to get rogers issued up to like nine or ten wins mighty. Eight could be wrong. You might be. It might be to eight. And then i heard debt yummy. But you know 'cause listed on on television. And i think they're saying that they can put him even at ten or eleven. Get rogers which again. Like i said tech definitely be the case writer can cities. Tina's probably not gonna lose more than a two games. Max so we'll see. And i'm talking about the entire roster entire schedules on us at roster but yeah that's what we're looking at man this division here man. Afc west is a is a division that you wanna watch.

"Kitchen table for the best part free days bob not been allowed to ripen in so now i think it. Sorry about the noise. That's the box i. It's funny the books on the The number on the front of the box has fifty six. Which happens to tom. Childs fifty-six isn't national dominated. That might give. Because i know your sense of humor.

Come on okay and the only got like a week maybe a week or three weeks before we have to get likes serious with this by like free weeks time. We're going to have dame's dakota we're gonna be talking about pre and post games and who were looking out for in previews and reviews and stuff we're going to be. We're gonna be busy boy so enjoy this talk chat. Line las vegas. Yeah or just grin and bear it for another few weeks. If that's your opinion of it it will soon be serious kingdom. It will be all business from now until the second week in february. So if i'm business in the front part in the back right then meant cheese news earlier in the week chiefs actually brought back alex. Okafor of losing out on. Melvin ingram after he signed with the steelers now. I wasn't totally convinced. That jason actually trying to get melvin ingram I know the kind of sniffed about Tires on him. But this time. I don't know i. I don't think they were all on it. Because i think maybe melvin ingram is asking for a little bit more or the agent was asking for a bit more. But it's the. I always say this about play. That we've been linked with has melvin ingram and his agent used the cheeks yet again to try and get paid. You say get paid. Who's building was only four million dollars an address. Ya four million dollars is quite cheap really concerned. That what we're planning frank clark. Okay melvin frank clark completely different passive career but they still play the same position. I just don't think the chase but are interested. I think they were to begin with when they found out how much melvin ingram wanted they probably looks alex okafor and said we could probably get the same sort production for the same price and they not nottingham him alex forbes he has injury problems besides melvin. Ingram in recent years is well. He's at injury issues. Trust alexander for they're not looking for the alex commun- and be like the guy he's coming into a and i don't think melvin ingram could come in and been the guy so go with the tried and tested methods..

"You just get back to back. Felony gun charges without losing gains. You're going to lose gain from frank clark. and instead. They signed close to home somebody that they're familiar with. Alex okafor on a one year deal. I don't know the numbers on that deal. You don't think that's been released yet. And it's a one year deal. All i'm saying is britain. Andy now you have a lot of the time so you can get the benefit of the doubt. You have a lot of the time. Been right this one. You better be right because you haven't if you weren't it feels like you're working on the cheap. It feels like you're trying to do something about somebody you know more. And i don't know about you too. But i look at it if you give me. Melvin ingram or alex. Okafor in terms of what i need rushing the passer ongoing melvin ingram every time and as i said this is the you better be right tour in britain. Andy bitter be right on this one. I think that's fair in some regards. But i mean if you look at what melvin. Ingram did and a lot of this studer injury for sure. Now he didn't do nonetheless last year wasn't good last year you know and even the year before he had seven sacks eleven cfl in twelve quarterback kids if you look at what alex oak afforded the year before he had five sacks he had Believe it's fifteen now five. Excuse me five. Cfl's in nine quarterback hits. The numbers are are somewhat similar between the two over. The last couple of years in kuffour is gonna come in as i would expect at a significantly lower number. I bet she's pretty close to the league minimum. I've got no issues with this man. I i really don't the other thing is because i don't know how much time we're going to see. Alex okeafor in their port of this was probably melvin. Ingram asking for more playing time. I don't think the chiefs could promise that fear looking at what they have right now on the outside. I think you're gonna see decent amount of chris jones on first and second down lining up at defensive end as we've talked about a lot frank clark i. I'm not there with you quite the same way. You are about him getting suspended this year. I think it's coming. I think this might play out kind of like the remember. The dwayne bowe situation where took a year for the court proceedings to take place before he was actually suspended officially by the league. I wouldn't be surprised to see something like that with frank clark this year as well so regardless frank clark in chris jones. I think you're going to be your early down. Defensive ends you're going to see a little bit of Mike dan out there on early downs as well taco charleston's going to be mixing in on third downs. I think i hope later on in the season. Joshua canedo is going to be mixing in on third downs as well that leaves a very limited role for alex. Soka for and. I think the same would probably have been true for melvin ingram and so i think this was as about melvin ingram deciding. He wanted more playing time. And that's what he was going to prioritize. It was anything else. i just. Don't think what what what are we doing. Though i mean i i i think the chiefs are in a situation where we all agree. They're super bowl or bus. That's where they are right like we're talking four million dollars. I don't know what the difference is going to be. We're talking four million dollars. The steelers got for him to me. I look at it. I i hear what you're saying. Last year melvin. Ingram due to injuries i believe played. Seventy eight games and it do much more to sex just as you stated..

"I think that was one of the downsides of the runningback tour agreed with their decision to do it especially given the weird off season the pandemic year everything that went into it. Oh that's a great point to you. It was all of that stuff that went into the decision to go with the running back to her. But one of the downsides of that is you. just don't have those new guys that haven't experienced that before like that ride. It had already been done for all of those dudes for the most part this year. You've got a lot of guys that have never been a part of something like this. I mean you look. You don't have to look any further than the offense of wine. It's a completely revamped unit. Those jews are going to be hugely motivated to be a part of something special this season so i just i think there's a lot of different reasons to believe that this is going to be a little different regular season. Wise now sort of us were to god. They fell asleep. I saw people with pillows against the carolina panthers especially in the half. I felt like they fell asleep. I said it all year last year. I don't think we saw them. Give a damn about a game. Like truly aside from that. Second raiders game. Maybe the ravens early in the season the ravens game to su super rubel point on monday night football that one and the the second raiders game because they lost the first time sunday night football. I don't think they gave a damn about any other game in the regular season. Like i don't think they cared until they got to the playoffs and then people were starting to say. All the chiefs had been neo. Getting in these close games chiefs had been playing lazy. Like they're gonna get tripped up by one of these playoff teams and they're like all right. We'll turn it on like that's just a credit to how talented they were before. The offensive line really fell apart last year that they were literally sleepwalking. Through the entire regular season and the end they only lost what two games and one of them was a week off where they lost to the chargers. So they're that good cited they are. They are you're right. they slipped. Walk also i think context matters but his point about the offensive line. Yeah like those guys are gonna be hungry. Those guys also are trying to be the reason that they don't win so so those guys are gonna to are like we got to be a top five offensive line like we gotta we gotta be completely locked down for this do because we got to go win a ring and they got. They got plenty of resources to that offensive line that they've laid forth for that all right before we get here. Congratulations to the milwaukee bucks as they win a championship for the first time in forty nine years and i just i just wanna pose this to you all jaanus. Whatever his last name is into the cuco. Whatever that is is pretty sure. That's why he went to chick-fil-a and ordered fifty of the mini chicken sandwiches. How is there real quick seriously. Is there any chance you believe. He could do that by himself. Because his or was the fifty and the drink like the nuggets. No no no. So you gotta go back. He changed it to the chicken. I don't think he knew exactly what he was ordering a chick-fil-a like he switched chicken. Minis i'm not sure he knew he was getting exactly. You can order big trace certa. I think you're wrong. He specifically said no. I mean the many's he says it specifically nope the minis not forty nine fifty. One i can. I could do it. have you ever been. Have you ever been really really hung over on a saturday and you wake up too early. And so you decide to go to a chick-fil-a breakfast. It doesn't matter if it's six. Am it's nine or ten. Am lines line's always around the corner. And so you know you. Maybe you order on the app or somebody comes over with an ipad and they order ahead of time you get spicy chicken breakfast burrito get excited chicken minnie's to eat on the ride home. That's the way you chick-fil-a breakfast. Not a of oddest. Could even if i were talking about a dude who's six seven two hundred and fifty pounds. He probably doesn't splurge on chick-fil-a every every now and then like i have seven foot to forty two to be exact six seven. He made them over and he was like six six seven. Six eight six eight whatever. But he's seven foot to forty to listen. I'm sorry. I don't even think he can get fifty. It's the bread. The amount of bread with that butternut sounds amazing. Just think if he gets to thirty he's got twenty more to go and if he's like music from seems things though no not with a bread sorta. It's by it's one bite. Janas could sort of three those things in his mouth ones. it's fifty of them also hands his hands calorie. His hands are so big his hands are so big he could fit ten of those things in his hand at once. And just kyle valerie's he'll run off. I'm sorry fifty. Listen i know. I've lost one hundred thirteen pounds. And i'm gonna tell you right. Now in my heyday. Fifty of the of the mini sandwiches. With the bread. I could do. I have had fights with the twenty negative. Mcdonald's i know fifty with the bread. There's no way honest. Diana lose some weight myself but i can. I can put down chick-fil-a. I think he can put down fifty those you tell her. I don't even know if you could get to fifteen outlets with you. I totally agree with you. Now can do fifteen piece mcnuggets. I i can do twenty five to thirty sure. you're telling you the dugout. It's ron's right on this. It's the bread twenty to thirty. No chance no pay for for you to do it. I'll pay what's his name. Who's do their windsor hotdog. Bet dude he can do it for sure he can. Joey chestnut joey chestnut twenty five to thirty. Get me real hungover on saturday morning. I'll put down thirty years thing. Inbred on every one of them is two bites. Put it in chewed up twice a swap mash. I think you sweat at seventeen. I think at seventeen you start sweat. There's no way he gets fifteen wrong. No no chance. You don't think it gets fifteen. No chance no chance fifteen fifteen. I think you're underestimating. How gross. I can be when it comes to. I don't but man. I i'll give you a seventy four orders each four. I think if you've got to twenty one or twenty two it'd be purely off of adrenaline and trying to prove he gets a ten and you feel like he goes up guarantee. I bet you be though he gets to. There's a number very early that he gets to where he goes. There is no way i am. I'm telling you. I have on more than one occasion. Ben very hung over on a saturday morning. Driven to a chick-fil-a at seven am got a spicy chicken breakfast brita which those are pretty nice size breakfast burritos and a four piece chicken mini on the side to eat on the drive home. You're an idiot. You're an idiot certa. that's not meals. We're talking about like fifty of them. That's not even close. I said i can do twenty five thirty. I don't think i could do fifty. I can't do.

"Is them believe in asked to be sure. It's them believing that what they have in chris. Jones is going to work there. And i think part of this also suggests they're confident print. Clark's not going to miss significant time this year because if they weren't i think you might even be looking at signing both guys going into the year. It might be a situation where you don't feel confident enough that you have the depth that you're going to need at that position going into the season and it also could be a situation where they're saying you know what we're looking at a pass rusher because that's really what you're talking about right right show is. You're you're saying okay. Where are you getting the pass rush from deepens events. Maybe they believe josh is going to be that guy by the end of the year the rookie that they took this year in the fourth round from florida state. He is ready right now. He is a project for them if they think though that he can be good bye week. Thirteen fourteen fifteen which is typically win. Spags rookies to be able to kind of start developing on the field for them in the games or that could play into this as well. So i think. It's i think it's a culmination of a number of different things. And when you add all of that up it was probably something where they said to themselves. We're fine with either guy if ingram decides to take our four million dollar offer three million dollar offer whatever it was. We're good with that. If he doesn't well we know we've got a backup plan and we feel comfortable. That locavore can come in and play. Thirty to forty percent of the snaps. And we'll be good with that as we've seen what that looks like. Just gotta just just better be right on it. That's all up saying if that was the thing that cost you you'd better be right. Acs where this is. I say this this is super bowl or bus team. And if we're gonna sit here with you know what man. I'm gonna i'm gonna take a chance on our fourth round. Pick that he's going to be a guy that can get pressure gonna take a chance. That might. Dan makes it a next step. You could do that. You could take a chance when roller bus like three. Four five million dollars is right there on someone that feels more for sure or you have a history on it and that feels more than just taking a chance when you sue bowler bus that that move feels like the way that i would go and i'm sure i'll be wrong but i mean that's that's i mean i just looked at. I am four million dollars one year. Four million dollars. I'm sorry. I know. Mike tomlin can do a lot of talking but if you to sit a we'll take you one for six. The i mean. I don't know i don't know interesting thing. Anc show got so worked up about alex okay. Four and melvin ingram that he completely forgot to throw to commercial break. So we're gonna take a quick time map but when we get back. The nfl released a new statement on.

"We can't guarantee you were starting spot and you might end up playing as we saw last year from alex. Ochre for thirty percents of the snaps. That might be what you end up getting depending on. What are other guys. Show us this year. Especially with chris jones at defense event. Or you're hearing from the steelers. Yo we lost but debris this offseason and we looked around and we realized. Hey it's late july and all we got's dj water defense event. You're going to be playing seventy percents of the snaps. You good with that where you going. you know. it's the same money either place. Both of them are going to be good teams. Although varying degrees of good chiefs championship considered steeler should be solid. I think you're gonna probably at this. End of your career with melvin. Ingram may be got one more chance to get a decent contract after the season and become back and play well in our healthy. You're going to the steelers. So i think this is one of those situations where it was less about. The chiefs were willing to offer and this is just speculation in more about what the player wanted and my guess is the player decided. Hey it makes more sense for me to go start in pittsburgh than it does for me to go be potentially a timeshare piece in kansas city. Melvin ingram one shoe boy. I i wanna play. I wanna play the chargers twice a year. Like i wanna get back at them twice a year an like if that if that scenario was painted in the chiefs are saying. How many snap. So you'd think in the chiefs probably would say what you said to forty forty percent of the snap at the to me. That's a mistake by the cheese. Like like even but you're also somebody. That doesn't like the idea of putting chris jones on the outside and i think this is kinda hinted till i don't but i but but even with that i still still from what we've had conversations about me chris. Jones is just going to be even. If he's just gonna primarily be out there you were thinking. Still in. Run like in pass rushing downs. New thought he would still get kicked in and they put their best guys out which that could be more than forty percents of the snaps to me. Like i feel like melvin rooms. Looking at at this. Melvin snow foo i think melvin. I think he wants to put together to get paid too. But i think he also knows if i'm on a big stage at a plane for team that's gotta cheats. That also helps me. And i get to play. This whole team thinks done multiple times a year. That helps me but at the chiefs are putting themselves in a position. Where melvin ingram man. You we get your thirty. Forty percents of the snaps. Where you didn't really want. Melvin ingram and and and that's problematic to me too because you start rolling out names like mike danna things in at taco charlton. Those are still nervous. No nervous guys for me for a championship team. That's gonna roll with. That potentially could have frank clark out for it. But the chiefs under spags have traditionally rotated a lot of guys out throughout a game. Like there's not very many defenders on that side of the ball for them under him. Who are legitimately playing like ninety. Five to one hundred percent of the snaps outside of like tired and matthew in chris jones in some circumstances like they rotate a lot of those guys in and out of the games and with ingram. I don't necessarily look at it like it's a money thing like i don't think the chiefs for necessarily trying to be cheap and like offering him two million dollars when the chiefs offered four million and they were like okay. Well we'll just take alex okafor for one point five or whatever the deal winds up being. I legitimately think that it's just spags. Really interested in bringing in the guy that already knows his system. He's he really likes the athletic profile of alex. Okafor alex okafor's bid on the field. They like what they got out of him. He's just struggled to stay on the field and they think if he can stay healthy. Oh we can get a lot more out of him than we've gotten out of him so far just because he's had some injury issue so i think that has a lot more to do with it then the dollar amount because yeah four million dollars. It's like if that was all it was. Melvin we'll give you five complaint for us and help us win a ring. Nbk if that's the point. That as i said to start this this is the you better be right tour. He better be right into thinking that we know him he. It's our system and that's the better move because to me. It's who is the guy. I think melvin ingram could fit the system if it what he wants to do and you better be right. Maybe i listen. I could be dead wrong. I've got no problems. Admitting alex okafor could be better at thirty years old right now than ingram at thirty two. It'd be be ready to go. And maybe ingram's note show notes sex five tackle for laws. Last year is where he is right. Now and alex okafor is a better player than him. Right now is just convince. Convinced me right now that that's the case and like i said they'd better be right about if it's assisted. I think that's all fair. What you're saying is fair. i. I think it's more comparable probably between the two players than what where you're at with these guys and i also think a lot of this shows i think the chiefs have a lot of the christians gonna work at defensive end. I think that's part of this..

Yeah that's uncomfortable but it ain't gonna happen. Although i just sit at eight times but it ain't gonna happen because the charges are gonna make offs. This is ridiculous. Good god man. Just in herbert god. Apparently of the the next quarterback that's top five in the league apparently to you too. I'll just. I'll just sit back with the cigar. Just bask in my glory when you're calling him daddy and meet king. It's gonna be great. It's not it will not happen. So we're over this and not mike. You could get into bit to to be honest with you I'll call him emperor. Mike if if that happens i can't wait. I can't wait to win. Bet that is just gonna make me uncomfortable and that i don't care about it all whatever it's not gonna happen all right so i i feel great about it. I'm gonna tell you what did happen this week. What happened is brett. Vh at eddie read put themselves in the tour. The newest tour for the cheese and that tour is called. Y'all better be right. The y'all better beat right tour. Because we watched melvin ingram. Who we've talked about. Maybe the top defensive in on the market or outside linebacker pass rusher under market. Go the pittsburgh steelers on a one year. Deal for four mil yin dollars. Four million dollars a person that i've said. Hey going kit as at least an insurance policy you know. Frank clark's going to get suspended. You just can't drive around with uzi's a right after you didn't already gotten in trouble before three months but you just can't get back to back. Felony gun charges without losing gains. You're going to lose gain from frank clark. and instead. They signed close to home somebody that they're familiar with. Alex okafor on a one year deal. I don't know the numbers on that deal. Yeah i don't think that's been released yet and yet it's a one year deal. All i'm saying is britain. Andy now you have a lot of the time so you can get the benefit of the doubt. You have a lot of the time. Been right this one. You'd be right because you haven't if you weren't it feels like you're working on the cheap. It feels like you're trying to do something about somebody you know more. And i i don't know about you too but i look if you give me. Melvin ingram or alex. Okafor in terms of what i need rushing. The passer ongoing melvin. Ingram every time. Ed as i said this is the. You better be right tour. In britain andy bidder. Be right on this. I think that's fair in some regards. But i mean if you look at what. Melvin ingram did. A lot of this is due to injury for sure her now he didn't do nothing. Last year wasn't good last year. You know and even the year before he had seven sacks eleven. T.f fell in twelve quarterback. Kids if you look at alex oak afforded the year before he had five sacks he had Believe it's fifteen now five. Excuse me five. Cfl's in nine quarterback hits. The numbers are are somewhat similar between the two over the last couple of years. And if okafor's gonna come in as i would expect at a significantly lower number. I bet she's pretty close to the league minimum. I've got no issues with this man. I i really don't the other thing is because i don't know how much time we're gonna see. Alex okafor in their port of this was probably melvin. Ingram asking for more playing time. I don't think the chiefs could promise that you're looking at what they have right now on the outside. I think you're gonna see a decent amount of chris jones on first and second down lining up at defensive end as we've talked about a lot prank clark. I'm not there with you quite the same way. You are about him getting suspended this year. I think it's coming. I think this might play out. Kind of like the remember. Dwayne bowe situation where it took a year for the court proceedings to take place before he was actually suspended officially by the league. I wouldn't be surprised to see something like that with frank clark this year as well so regardless frank clark in chris jones. I think you're going to be your early down defensive and you're going to see a little bit of Mike dan out there on early downs. Well taco charleston's going to be mixing in on third downs. I think i hope later. On in the season joshua canedo is going to be mixing on third downs as well at least a very limited role for alex soka for and i think the same would probably have been true for melvin ingram and so i think this was as much about melvin ingram deciding. He wanted more playing time. And that's what he was going to prioritize. It was anything else. i just. Don't think what what what are we doing. Though i mean. I think the chiefs are in a situation where we all agree. They're super bowl or bus. That that's where they are right like we're talking four million dollars. I don't know what the difference is going to be. We're talking four million dollars. Steelers got for him to me. I look at it. I i hear what you're saying last year. Melvin ingram due to injuries. I believe played. Seventy eight games do much. He didn't remote a sex. Just as you stated. I think five tackles for loss. But clearly when he's healthy he's been a seven eight double digit sack guy in in his in his career and to be when you give him the point of a recipe where we want to get that situation especially with what steve spagnuola likes to do with guys up front and how that's always been his is way of doing is getting pressure. Listen this is super bowl or bus to three million dollars. I don't give a rip if he if he's getting signed for nine hundred. What is the minimum now. Five hundred thousand. I'll give a writ four million dollars. You're eight million of the cap right now. Don't fool around with this and go make the best deal. Like i steps me now. They could be right on this. Like i said they better be right on this but that to me seems cheap and it seems like all right we know god we trust the guy for this system better in that just i just don't i don't like that go kit. That especially it comes to that case like we've talked about it before like maybe you can't go kids xavien howard like i've talked about this at maybe that's out of it before million dollars. Four for alex okafor. I've seen the ceiling of alex okafor man and he's been injured to share executive passer. Alex okafor is a. He's one of them coverage sat guys. I'm gonna work namo keep goin' hummel. Keep going. I'm a poor rest my ass today it then maybe i might get you melvin. Ingram can go beat guys. You know not consistent like he did before but he can go. Beat guys just four million dollars. That one sent me to the age. When i saw that. I'm like well hold on. So i'm with you. I in general like this was the chiefs not matching the offer. Yeah i would have preferred to have in a vacuum. Melvin ingram over alex okafor. I agree. But i'm put you in. Melvin ingram spot for a second if the chiefs are offering you four million dollars in the steelers are offering you four million dollars in one place..

"What's up chiefs kingdom. This is mad stagner prior to the start of this episode. I wanted to give you a quick update just to make sure we're current as we recorded this episode. Ron and i were talking about the defensive end depth and whether or not the chiefs would make an addition a veteran edition prior to training camp and of course what are the chiefs do right as the recording ended a resign. Alex okafor to a one year. Deal the timing of this move was interesting the fact that they signed him. Right after melvin ingram went to the pittsburgh steelers and right before a training camp started. I don't think it's necessarily an indication that they missed out on ingram and took her backup option or that. There's some issue with. Frank clark's availability at this. Time is probably just a returning veteran player that they know can step right in the knows the playbook that wanted to return and would be a good rotational piece or depth piece. It gives them some more flexibility in some more options going into camp. We'll see what that means for results on the field but with that let's go ahead and get to the rest of the show. Welcome chiefs team into this edition of the out of structure. Podcasts ahead. Fried podcast network matt during the by arcade day rod. How you doing today. I'm good week away from training. Camp now the quarterbacks and special teamers or something or maybe rookies quarterbacks and refused report on friday but a week from today. When you're listening to this there will be actual practice for people to watch so where they are guys. What we. I think we made it. Well not yet. i guess but we're almost. There has been a long slog. But we're finally going to see some football soon and some actual news on how some of these players are coming together. Who's made improvements in there in the off season. Who's ready to have a breakout year. Who's struggling to pick up the playbook in camp all of those stories that will be more meaningful than what we've talked about for the last month but will pretty quickly be not meaningful actual season starts. Yeah exactly or almost there. It's it's it's time to overreact. A training camp stories. It's time for national reporters to hear that mahomes through a pick and to start talking about whether he's got his downfall or for some random undrafted free agent of make one play and camping for everyone to think. Oh he needs to play over this veterans so it i can't wait. It's it's my favorite time of the year. Definitely jodi fortson season and marcus up and your dealer and it is jody fourteen sees. I'm glad you said that. Because he is the main candidate for that. What i just said people love to think that he's that next that next extra seaver. We'll speaking of things that the media and fans are overreacting on. We should get to the news of the week. Melvin ingram the defensive end that has been a free agent has visited kansas city. Signed with the pittsburgh steelers for pretty meager contract a four million dollar deal. What ron what do you think that says about the chiefs actual interest in ingram four million dollars. I think that's something they could have definitely done. Especially i know. They don't have necessarily that much cap space on the surface right now but once and i kinda tweeted this actually today or yesterday on monday tarmac through contract extension news needs to happen soon. When that happens there will be plenty of cap space for more things to happen..

Nothing was eating out of the grab magsi entire wrench. I you know. I told him right. Lesson learned on his part. He spent his money. Whatever may be that makes me apparent but but that's the way that works right. So we see alex okafor's injuries were like. Yeah no thanks. But then we see. Melvin ingram centuries like yeah but he could be or we see olivier vernon injuries will like. Oh yeah but but his achilles is going to be great so you think. There's some of that going on i mean. The grass is always greener on the other side. You're melvin ingram olivier vernon they're great players but they've got injuries Outspoken for. he's a good player. he's got some injuries but the reality is he knows the system. He's worked with this group of guys before he's gonna be able to fit right into the scheme they know what he is Whereas you know you might something. That's quote unquote greener. You never know. In so i like i like the i like knowing that i like knowing what we have and i liked that the coaching staff knows what they have I trust them. So i'm all for it. I like when they bring back. Guys they know in that have been fine at inns. Where maybe it's a it's a depth signing you know if if we're talking about you know signing our number two wide receiver and we pick somebody who i've never heard of his injury prone. Yeah maybe i have problems there but this view has depth signing somebody that they know who's been goodwin healthy. I'll like it. I like it. I like your perspective to the is unknown quantity. You trust the coaches if they say yeah. Let's bring alex back in. He's going to be what we need. A give us security How how can we all that.

He's deep behind car who's under center turns gives the Booker dancing at the line hits the pile drives it ahead for a gain of about two Booker Sacramento native who spent his first four years with Denver after coming at a Utah was a third round pick.

They recorded it from the field either earlier in the day or in a different time and then played. It's so is pre produced anthem, which I don't think I've ever seen before. Not just that. It wasn't even the field at Kansas City. I was wondering about believe it wass the eye. It looked like and I may be wrong here, but it looked like the Memorial Coliseum, which would make sense because I'm sure that's where those singers are based out of. So I fly them in the Casey.

"Which is a big part of their offense. A couple of things that I wanna point out. So this guy, Alex Okafor. Does it fantastic job? He's. Saying the naked. He's going to come up field in force. He goes the Rams are gonna run naked your I'm gonna make sure that Jared Goff cannot get outside of me. So it's a beautiful job by him on defense two things. I want to point out on offense. So Tyler higby the tight end right here. His job his job is to come down cell run. And if he realizes that somebody goes outside of him, which is Alex Okafor. You've got to keep your quarterback in answer. So his job is to down and breakout your quarterback option, but I love this. Jared goff's is you tell quarterbacks all the time. Gary kubiak used to tell us all the time and we run naked. No your problem before the snap. Jared Goff is in the middle of a fake. But yet he's looking at Alto Kuffour knowing that was going to be a problem for me. My problem. I gotta get my head around. This is going to be a bad plate. And then the awareness. That flip is hits. People don't understand. This is something quarterbacks do hundreds of times for this one moment, this quick clip at your how hard it is then to spot your receiver. No, okay. Here comes two hundred and eighty pounds at my chest into my sternum to start this drive, but I'm gonna make that throat to Tyler higby beautiful job of understanding your problem. He'd be given an answer we go first down this get some more yards. It's a loss. Second and thirteen. Let's run another naked. How about Cam Jordan here? We're gonna look at Cam, Jordan. I don't care what you guys are doing. I'm going to split your blocked by the tight end and blow this playoff, but Jared goff's awareness again, he sees Cam Jordan going. I've got a problem before the snap. Make sure is around. Listen, Kim, Jordan is about three hundred pounds. I've been with Jared Goff in a locker room practice. You're not go two hundred and five thousand and his body. Looks like a fourteen year old swimmers. He's not ready to having three hundred pound man enough to take him down to the ground. But the awareness. They get that ball out of his hands to nose problems. And then the guts to make that throw that is not an easy throat. When you've got three hundred pound dude, yanking your left. Shoulder down because that Bulkin flutter Jared Goff answered so many questions the environment handling that overtime drive with two throws at people may not think are big deal, but they were huge. Yeah. Down thirteen after the first quarter Todd Gurley. Three snaps in the third. He had to play a big game to get the win. All right coming up next on get up. Stephen Smith is coming in the studio, obviously, he's going to have a comment on the no call, obviously, he will express its opinion in a very, calm fashion. I'm back in listening..
