"And those linebackers of the future and this year it has to be hitching. Some gay i. I completely agree. They don't have a lot of choices here. You know Did everybody wants to talk about you. Know the corner need cornerbacks and they need this. And they need an edge rusher to be opposite frank clark but the linebacker. The linebacking corps has been the main weak spot of the team for several years. Now and one of your starters leaves you know. They allow him to walk. You got to replace that guy you know. You don't really have a lot of options there. They didn't have A bunch of quality players in the pipeline linebacker to step up We saw what happened last year. When hitchens was heard we we had a couple of guys that hadn't really played since training In their plan for a man they did a good job. I'm you know. I'm not going to say they were terrible. But they aren't the guy. Is the chiefs one playing back there and so to me. It was not a bit of a surprise that they took michael bolton god who profiles very much like kitchens but is more athletic than hitchens. And i think that a lot of these fans is would say if you gave me more athletic more athletic kitchens a guy who's a smartest hitchens to be that mike line linebacker. I'd be okay with that. So i'm kinda surprised. That cheese fans are Were astounded that. The chiefs took bolton. It made perfect sense to me. It was it wound up to me. And i would agree with you. There and hindsight is twenty twenty and you almost felt a little bit silly. After the fact that the top position that they took in the draft was linebacker. But it feels like then linebacker or i'm sorry his position on the team where it's like all right. You can tell that they need to do something here. And so Look at it hitchens and gay. You have been neiman. We have both in the rookie. There's darius harris during no daniels still in this team you talk about now or never guys right emmanuel smith amari cobb karez now in that. Mix if you consider him a linebacker but we're looking at him as more as a an an an an outside guy then riley coal so it is a wide open room. It is a a deeper room. And i think there's a lot opportunity there for one of these dark horse undrafted free agents guys who've been on the team and really not sit down on defense daniel To take a step forward and get a role here because the chiefs need that help right. See what i agree with you. I think they really have no choice but to put gay on the field this year along and trial by fire in a sense right. And you know spagnolo. Doesn't like to put rookies and starting roles and the fact that that gay got as much time as he did was kinda surprising last year but it was a reflection of. You know what they needed to do How thin they were at linebacker. So if willie gay isn't isn't starting this year. Then something's wrong. That's how i feel i agree. I think you drafted that player last year because in needed him to perform this year. It seemed like learning curve. Was a little steep forum. But now you've had a whole year you've had we're going to have an off season where he should hopefully rehabbed and healthy and right. You see what happens all right. Let's get to our next question. Will the chiefs advocaat breeland or another veteran. Cornerback john poses questions. You start here. What do you think. Well first of all i feel bad for breeland. What is this like four years in a row trying to get a big contract someplace right. It just hasn't worked out for him. And and you know he keeps coming back to the chiefs so a the chiefs ought to be able to get him at a fairly inexpensive deal. He's shown he can play in this defense. I think that in another year they might have already resigned him. But i think the wildcard is deondraye. Baker i think that they think they can get a lot of production out of the andre baker You know how we how is about these. Former first round players that he's able to get At a minimum cost later on. I think they see him as the guy so breeland yet may still be on the street and they pick picking up but for now i think they want to keep him off the team. I get little nuggets here. And there and my thinking and from talking to people with the chiefs 'cause they might have played baker in the playoffs if not been for that injury in the trial week. Seventeen game. I mean you talk to sam. Madison and i had asked madison late in the season about baker and baker. To madison's quote was performing well against some of the chiefs top receivers chiefs. Top receivers are tyreek hill and watkins and kelsey and i just if you're performing well against them. I feel like you can perform well against any of these playoffs and receivers. They offer so. I think he was going to be right there. I think they really like baker on the outside. I know that they wanna put the jerry sneed on the outside. They want snead island to be a real thing. So i think the the big thing that might be being missed here is the chiefs are more on the hunt for a slot. Cornerback then maybe outside cornerback and rashad fenton if they do kicks need outside we're probably profile inside but remember when sneaking back last year after that shoulder injury sneed was on the inside and i don't know how high they are infected in that position..

"Play off by week once again joined by my esteemed deputy editor john dixon and a new guest today. We have one of our staff writers. Ron cop on as well john. I'll start with you. How is your playoff by week going. I'm very happy we're we're i. We have a week off everything about this fantastic. As far as i'm concerned when you get to the end of sixteen games use a week. That's a little bit more relaxed. We're not going to be completely off like we can completely shut things but there is need for break and guess what. Then we're like the chiefs gonna come back refreshed ready to go ron. How're you doing. Hey i'm doing good. I changed my twitter. Name the playoff run. Because it's that time. So playoff ron time. I hope you perform as well as sammy. Watkins does in the playoffs. Can't promise that for playoffs sammy. The different breeds so she already done really well in the regular season. See so you're not even in that category. Maybe do worse in the playoffs. This a fit or comparison on today's show. We have some news talk about with your kansas city chiefs when it comes to injuries out of that week. Seventeen game against the la chargers. What talk about some of the job interview said eric be enemy is going through as well as the playoff probability for your kansas city chiefs. We'll take a quick break. And then ron has done a great job in going over some of the possible. Afc opponents to chase may face. We'll talk a little bit about each possible opponent for the chiefs and then john's favorite part of the week of course. Which is the best chiefs thing we heard all week. But let's start here. Willie gay unfortunately the one player. Maybe maybe the one player who you wouldn't wanna see injured in this meaningless week. Seventeen game against the la chargers it only took three snaps and he reportedly. According to sam mcdowell of the kansas city star has a high ankle sprain which usually is two to four weeks of recovery. John when you first heard this news what was on your mind well. I was glad it wasn't a broken angle. I'll i'll go for that but you know. The high ankle sprain is such a question mark. It takes a variable amount of time to come back from those and it could in fact encompassed the whole off the whole postseason which potentially bad news for the chiefs and they are desperately thin at linebacker and they've got guys who are on the cova list or coming off of injuries. this is This is not the ideal situation at all my problem with it and this is what's so tough i think for chief fans is. He was really finally starting to come into his own. In my opinion it really felt like it was getting through the coaching staff. We gotta find a way to keep this guy on the field for more than fifteen to eighteen snaps. He was supposed to get the bulk of the snaps in this week. Seventeen game only ends up with three. Ron what were you thinking when willie gay him out of the game well said a linebacker minerals just then that you can't even a isn't a guy seeing you know there's many snaps as we want on the field. We can't afford to lose him In a depth throw and he was playing a lot more as you said but he was a star in the base package. So now they're going to have to rely ben neiman to go back to being the starter will the will linebacker like. He wasn't the beginning of the year and he's dealing with a hamstring injury. So it just it really does not make me feel good about how the defense fares in the playoffs when you think about some of these opponents. They're going to face indefinite take advantage of a weak linebacker. The good thing is that the chiefs have. We'll be two weeks off their feet. So presumably willie gays could arrest. I don't see him available for the divisional round. You would hope by that point. That anthony hitchens is back in the mix. So even if you're dealing with some of these backups. Hitchens the glue. That's what steve spagnolo called him this year so potentially he could be back in the mix off of the covid less and suddenly you have your direction in order so if you have to go with some guys. Maybe who aren't used to playing the linebacker position. Say name is not available. And you have to roll with a guy like darius harris. It did seem like damian. Wilson should finally be fully healthy by the time. You have to play again so it is concerning but you have some of these guys coming back. And i think you have to really best case scenario. This is just my opinion. Best case scenario you gotta hope that really gays back by what would be the afc title game. And who knows how well he could perform. They're coming off the injury again. You got to win the division game. I we're in that territory too. So i don't want to get through this segment without saying that i'm not trying to jinx anything here now. They're injury that we'll be watching in the long term is the injury to deondraye baker who fractured his femur. I admittedly did not know with a femur was when they said he fractured it as a big part of the leg. Thigh area. right. But andy reid as optimistic as he could possibly be. He said that it was as clean a break as you could have where they were able to piece it back together really quickly and john. The big news was that baker was already back in the building on monday. Well you kind of see this coming. Because i think this is because of the injury that alex smith had. There's a point now where. Nfl trainers will go. Okay this is potentially a very bad injury. We shouldn't take this guy to the locker and they put him in an ambulance and took him out of the stadium. That wasn't a that wasn't the cart. They normal used take her out of the out down locker room. It was a fire department vehicle although a glorified golf cart but nonetheless they were taking him to an ambulance taken to a hospital. He had surgery sunday night. based on. what andy reid said. So by monday morning He was able to be on crutches in and put a little weight on it. And move around. That's a that's a terrific outcome from such a serious injury and it's just lucky for him that he didn't have the catastrophic injury like smith had a couple of years ago. Yeah and the thing that bothered me on this one is you could hear andy. Reed's voice after the game..

"Me dairies harris. I think he did an admirable. Job against the falcons coming in on very short notice coming in have play replacement neiman calling the defense. I think he did a better job controlling the defensive front than been neiman did. Maybe he didn't get everybody also the same page. But i saw him calling more justice than i thought. Ben nima did win. The falcons went in motion when things change. I think he understands the game relatively well. I'm excited to see him. Like we talked about with gilly willie gay with a whole week of practice in what he's able to do. I don't know if he's an nfl athlete. I just talked about deandre baker wanting to see him look like a first round player. I don't know of darius. Harris is ever going to look a guy that stands out on the football field. He's not that big. He's not that athletic. He just doesn't move like a starting. Nfl backer but to be a solid. Backup to be a good backup. You know second team mike. He really could dig his heels into that position maybe keep his roster spot going forward so they may be don't feel like they need ben neiman to come back yeah. I'm very curious to see jerry harris as well because it doesn't look like been neiman's and i'm fine with that i mean even if he's just a little dinged up he's the guy that they trust in the dime and whether or not you agree with it. I don't wanna lose that guy for the playoffs because spagnolo trusts in. They need him at this point. I don't wanna be shifting major parts of defense. If i can avoid it so i wanna see darius harris out there again another guy. I talked about earlier. Willie gay maybe not knowing that he was going to be the full ramp. Buck guy you know. Get all of those reps dairies. Harris certainly didn't know that he was coming to get all those microbes. he was prepping to be. Maybe the sam. Because if you know in neiman has been playing the sam with anthony hitchens in and willie gay in as well with amy wilson out. I think that you're going to see a better version of dairy harris that we saw this week. I think you're gonna see a lot more understanding i i'm with mattie. I like what he was doing at the line when there was motion making adjustments. I think that you're going to see willie gay dairies. Harris play pretty well together certainly much better than they did. And i didn't even think that they were awful. But you're going to see an improvement and that's going to help both of those guys. I wanna see how they come out and defend the run added drop into coverage and make sure that everything in a brand new group of players. How connected it seems. It seems more connected than last week. Then that means dairies. Harris's doing a phenomenal job. And that means that that's a guy that you can really come hang your hat on. Is maybe a backup. Mike in twenty twenty one a position that i've been clamoring for the chiefs to go out and get an once again. Savior a draft. Pick knowing the anthony hitchens is going to be there and be the starter. If you keep darius harris on the roster as a guy that can kick into that role do it at a pretty good clip and you feel pretty good about where your linebackers are. All right guys prediction. Time craig what you got. This game doesn't matter period for realistically for for either team. The chargers are going to play more of their starters. I they're going to be down keenan allen. I know they're going to be down joey bosa. There's a bunch of guys that aren't playing for them as well. But they are still going to put their starters in for the whole game and they're going to play the whole game. It's gonna be sloppy. You know the chiefs offense is going to be particularly effective. You know the defense is going to be a little bit outta sorts and confused. I think the chargers do in this one. With a late. Justin herbert touchdown twenty three to seventeen harming their draft stock while not hurting the chiefs ability to continue to maintain the one seed that they already one. I'm with craig here. This game really doesn't mean much. I don't think to the chiefs at all. This isn't like the last time they were resting starters where you want to see know the number ten overall pick that you traded up for and what he can do. We were resting the guys that are the future of this team. I don't know if the cheese energy level when the silly be lacking. But i think is the game goes on you will see. There's going to be a lack of experience out on the field. There's going to be a lack playmakers especially for the chiefs and i think just in herbert's been phenomenal. I'm actually sad that he's been this good because he was a quarterback that i wanted to see in the afc west. If i had to see one and he's been really good. I think the chargers kind of control the all the way through by the simple mahomes rule. They had the best player on the field in just ann arbor and he plays quarterback so i have the chargers winning twenty seven to fourteen as the chiefs offense kinda struggles to move the ball a little bit without being one hundred percent into this game. I think eighty read team is going to keep this close. Because that's just what andy. Reid teams do chase. Daniel gave the chargers fits in the past You know we've seen this team without anything to for in week. Seventeen win a few games. Hello patrick levine. Mahomes first game. Obviously it was because the best player in the world was getting his first shot. But tyler bray by man is actively trying to lose that game for the cheese to put mahomes back in bud. Talk talk about it craig anyways. I'm not even going live. You chance to respond. I think any keeps a close. I think this is an ugly football game. I think it's twenty two seventeen. Los angeles chargers that she's put up a good fight. Some young.

"Go up asks. We've said that a couple of the last games have been mahomes worst. It seems like he hasn't been on the same page and has missed. Plenty of easy throws. Is there any cause for concern. Kind of like what. I was saying earlier. I think this week mahomes might have been maybe protecting himself a little bit or feeling the pressure because i do think he was reacting a little bit differently to pressure This week this game was just a little bit different. I thought for him. And i'm not saying he's you know he this isn't carson wentz and he just broken or anything like that but i do. He was just responding differently to pressure. He was falling awesome throws and trying to fall away from some of the hit that he was taking. It's not what you're used to him. So what change. While he got the crap kicked out of them by the new orleans saints and some of those shots were brutal. I mean the the shot between two guys just hit him. I just rough. I mean that was that was painful to watch and it looked like it affected him. Frankly physically. So is there a little. Bit of a response. There are they. You know you kind of feeling things a little bit. The cheese want him to protect himself. The chiefs go and say hey look We want you kinda maybe be a little bit mindful. Protect yourself in some situations that try to avoid. Some of the major hits were so close to the super bowl are defending our ring. We just want you to you know. Be ready to go. I don't know. I don't know if it's a long term thing either but i think these next couple of weeks are gonna be really good for him to reset get one hundred percent healthy. Be ready to go. and you know. Hopefully everything kinda running on all cylinders. When when when the time matters the most t. e. r. o. Three does darius harris get more snaps. Now i liked what i saw when we when he got thrown into the fire last game plus a game from willie gay do the chiefs. Finally give him more snaps to first of all darius harris like we said in the post game. Show an admirable job like he probably hadn't gotten any reps at the mike linebacker position because he was slated to play sam and we know how the practice rules and everything work. He didn't get he had had any live reps in the nfl period at the mike linebacker position. So that's not something that's easy to walk into and call the plays so hat tip to him willie. Gay had some splash plays. We got to see a couple tackles for loss. We got to see him moving. Well out there like everybody wanted. But the linebacker played was poor guys. It really was disorganized understandably so i'm not blaming anybody for that like in that position. That's what happens. Darius harris isn't a super athlete. I think saw him on that wheel. Route up the scene from or up the sideline for early early on for very first play the game. They went right at him. And you got to see that he lacks some of that athleticism he definitely was put into a position where you can make a little more plays in the middle of the field. Fill some gaps. That was good. Willie gay junior. If you're watching the game watching every single play. He gave up three completions. In the first half four first downs including the one that been neiman got hurt on when neiman was trying to cover for willie gay now. I know that very few chiefs fans are giant bid neiman guys but that was a play that ben nimmo was trying to help cover for a mistake that we had made. He is just growing as a player like he hasn't had an offseason. He is a rookie. He is still learning the game after not playing very many snaps at mississippi state. It is understandable to see play like this but it is the reason why he's not on the field yet. Our guy charles goldman actually said this game is the reason why willie gay isn't seeing the field and the reason why gate needs to see the field it simultaneously true. He needs more reps so that he can grow as a player but at the same time this team is fourteen and one and the defense is a large part of that steve. Spagnolo here trying to make sure that they keep the lead that they keep the one seed and so he's choosing some guys that know what they're doing a little bit better and that's why they're seeing the field over him week. Seventeen is arguably the the most important game of willie gays career so far because he can maybe take that extra step in his professional development. This is a big week. I'm really excited to see willie. Gay out. there kyle k. You have a time machine. You travel in the future where legit sneed is considered a blue chip player. What year did you go to this year. I went there. Meade is a blue chip player for this defense. He is a top five player for this defense. Or i don't want to hear the argument about it. He really is he shows up. He plays at a ridiculously high level. He has played on the boundary. he has played inside. He frees up other guys to do things that make them better players. He is a key ingredient in this defensive success and why they've been able to play at a high level early games. I know we talked about the defense late but early gains. He's a key ingredient. He just routinely makes impact place. He's already one of the blue chip players for this defense and he's in year one as a fourth round. Pick just an absolute steel of a player. So craig okay so maybe our definitions of a blue chip player are different. But i'm gonna ask. Are you putting legitimate. Need in the chris. Frank clark tired matthew bucket it. He's in the bucket below that case. So here's my my definition of a blue chip player. Are those three okay. Top.

"I even run arrowhead pride to an extent. I like to just throw people in the fire. And i know that has nothing to do with playing football necessarily but let's see what a person can do. Let them write an article for example you had now. Anthony hitchens playing. We knew that going in kobe list. We knew damian. Wilson wasn't playing because he's dealing with that knee issue then neiman. All of a sudden becomes really important. Because he's the guy with the experience starts doing the communication for the chiefs. He gets injured in the game. All of a sudden we wanted to see willie gay. We got willie gay. And we got darius harris and we got mari cobb. Nobody knew who he was before last week. And i love that because yes as you can read on our website today out goes through it. Willie gay had some ups and downs especially in the first half but you know what he showed progress in the second half and that can only happen by playing. And with this guy's athleticism leading the chiefs in tackles. I think he needs to be on the field. He's one of those guys again. Something will get into as we talk about the availability for next. I would like to see play again because he needs the wraps if he's gonna potentially have an impact on the play-offs this is always out how it is though These guys show promise and sometimes they don't get opportunities to play. That's not just for the chiefs for any nfl team and more often than not. It's a combination of circumstances that give them the opportunity to push him out on the field before their coaches really think they're ready. I mean we. We see examples of this in every team every year. And this is yet another one You know it hasn't been real clear to us. Why willie gay has getting a lot of snaps You know we ask and we get answers that maybe tell us a little bit. But don't really give us the answer we think is the right one and yet now we see maybe some of why the chiefs have held him back a little bit. He did struggle. Somebody also shut a lot of talent made some plays and you know. I think they got an opportunity to see what he could do on the field. Would you'll only help going forward. Well it's been clear in previous games that he's needed extra help or tutoring instruction from anthony hitchens simply wasn't there harris writing to figure it out so these guys were it was the definition of thrown into the fire. And you can make a case especially in this final stretch here. The defense might have had its strongest game. You got an pressure on matt ryan. Second level was good. L'jarius sneed had himself south game and other rookie for this team. I felt really good about the defense coming out of this game. I know the falcons had a poor year. But they have some offense to them and the chiefs were able to hold them to fourteen. Points could have been seventeen with that last second field goal. That was missed but still. I was pretty impressed and especially with that second level. Are john your first marinated takeaway. Here i think after watching this game. And i actually thought this for a while but it just confirmed it to me that the offensive line is the team's biggest obstacle to being successful in the post season. Now i say that because you know they're having problems they're having problems Running the ball like we think they should. They're having problems. Protecting patrick mahomes like we think they should. And yet It's not like we had this incredible offensive line last year and went and won the super bowl I think we're in worse shape than we were at this point last season but it might not be very much. So why with the is the biggest problem I don't know that it's necessarily one that's gonna keep the chiefs from succeeding in the postseason. But if you have to pick one that's it yeah. I was surprised by the fact that was new. Ski was not still in the lineup. This week when remers was healthy and they opt for remers at right tackle. That means to me that he is simply going to be this. Swing guard for them. If they need someone to step in which you need. I mean we have seen too many dimes this year. Someone gets.

"Seventeen fourteen. your kids cheese. That is not a halftime score. That is the final score. The game the chiefs. Secure the bye week. Fourteen in one record. Maybe get to see bowe peak keys deondraye baker next week but we got to talk about the defense real quick. And we gonna start with this. The linebacker core was depleted. They did not have anthony itches. They did not have damian wilson. They called up. Amari cobb from the practice squad this week. Disjointed a baby gets hurt craig. Yeah linda. Let's start with this before we even get into this game. There's a lot of people that get on the whole. Why should anthony hitchens be out there. Just because he's a smart player all of that and understanding you know what he actually brings. You got to see it. Been as a major step down from a quote unquote smart player because bid neiman is one as well that gets on the field understands. Assignments understands responsibilities and get all eleven players on the team page when been neiman went out darius harris was thrust into the mike linebacker role and he played in the dime as well. He got the green dot he had to call the plays. What you saw was a bunch of guys. That were very disorganized. Like they loosely. Knew what was going to happen but not a single player identified a late motion identified. A leak passed off players in coverage. It was very disorganized. And it's because they didn't have that guy that was doing everything beforehand. So when we hear this whole need replace higgins because he's a negative winnie's on the field. He improves the play of all eleven players. And this week you saw a major setback. Now that being said got deep into their linebacker rotation like i said harry was playing mike linebacker. Willie gay was out. There is the will and he got a lot of buck reps. He looked very out of sorts. Especially early i been. Neiman was not lining him up in the same way. That anthony hitchens was and you saw a lot of plays where he was very late. React to things wasn't reading his keys. He made some plays but they were mostly unblocked. Athletic plays in the second half. You've got a little bit better. Been neiman actually. Got this defensive. Play pretty well to start the game. He came out all of a sudden. It just kind of fell. Apart the falcons were able to go into twenty one personnel end of the second half and then abandoned in the third quarter went back to it in the fourth quarter. And were just able to run at this chiefs defense. It didn't know what they were supposed to do. So the linebacker core we talk about all the time what they can really bring here. You got to see what happens when they go down those guys those smart play collar guys things. We're just incredibly disorganized. What i don't even wanna short. Anthony hitchens the player here. Like yes talking about your with call the plays getting all the alerts and adjustments are very true. I think if you did it see at this game. I don't know how to make it more obvious. It was very clear that the chiefs missed him. That's anthony hitches the run-defender significantly better than bed. Believe in the run defender darius hairs run defender or willie. Gay the run defender. It's night and day. How much better. He is all of those guys about getting into the right gap reading the running back understanding the keys he asked to read and make inactivity beijing. The place i'm not talking coverage just verse the run. He is the most skilled player right now at the linebacker position. You saw that in this game willie gay. He had a rough first half he was a liability. He could not make the right read on anything. His only positive place seemed to be when he was blitzing or trying to shoot a gap out of design which is fine. He's a young player. He has to have these reps some point in time. But you wanna ask why. He's not on the field. You can't put a player that's going to be an active liability. Not only for his own assignment but for other people's because he's not really providing assistance for anybody else right now. He's just kind of running around chasing plays. It's a good skill set to have you hope that he could. Can you develop it and become a plus player for himself. Then helping other people out right now. He's just not there. So i get one to get him wraps in games that are blowouts like the year when he got a couple of reps at the end of the first enver game perfectly make sense but right. Now you're trying to win games. It's going to be really hard to put him out there and have the defense make more plays that he's gonna give up. Because you like craig said houston late personnel to the flat. He's not gonna identify until the bulls almost in that receivers hands and then he still has to make the play. He's athletic enough to recover sometimes but he still has to make the play in last night. I just want to touch on. I think areas hairs did a pretty good job stepping in having to make some calls. I think in the base defense he might have even made a few more. Just adjustments to defensive line. I think ben neiman was getting off. Mimi was very good at getting guys on the right play. So they were organized. I think harris was able to make some live adjustments in motions that he saw pretty well for a guy that had it been playing much this year but it still was a big downgrade from what so used to that touches on something. I wanna hit real quick before the linebackers kind. Kinda go off here. We can start with mattie but would you put darius harris in a spot to replace dint ben neiman as your dime linebacker like. Did you see a massive downgrade in play on the field. Obviously they trusted him to have the green dot. So it's not that big of a deal but dude you see enough of a downgrade with kidney. Maybe an off the field in the dime like when both were healthy to where you felt like you needed to have been neiman over darius harris..

"Now you have to give pressure. But he hasn't been particularly when you're pressuring him. he's ill in terms of efficiency. he's a slight setback. What ryan patrick had been for them earlier in the season. So you do wanna get pressure on. But like greg said you. Just don't wanna let them get outside the pocket because he does have the athleticism to scramble. Now we haven't really seen that so far the nfl. He has not used his legs to great success against arizona. He did extend some plays. He did help them pretty much. Come back and win that game with his mobility but outside that he's been a little bit limited in how he can use his athleticism. You don't wanna be the team that let's that change. I don't think that she should be afraid. of what. to a tagline. Vishwa there gathers attempt is going to be able to accomplish through the air. I think you just have to let them throw the ball. You would rather you would rather pressure to or keep him in the pocket and let him just throw the football around then let him get outside. I think it will be in business. He had the chiefs. Go about this. Essentially the chiefs should be able to get pressure with four. But we've been saying that for about four weeks now and it simply hasn't happened so we'll see what happens in this game. Do they still have to bring pressure. Can they do it with. Just four guys a. It's going to be interesting to see all the speaking of getting pressure with four. It may thanksgiving was a couple of weeks ago. Christmas in a couple of weeks but mattie you think chris joe's might be feast in this week on paper he absolutely should because combination of ted crass solomon kinley and now eric flowers looks like he's not gonna play this week robert. The rookie is going to be stepping in it. Google four flowers. You're going to have three guys that none of them are particularly fleet afoot. None of those three guys handled speed particularly well. I would not put lateral agility anywhere near the top of these guys scouting report. What is chris jones. Do really really well rush the passer. Lateral agility there. They said matchup looks very promising for him in terms of having a big week. The only thing you kind of worry about is if the dolphins dedicate a lot of extra attention to him knowing that exact same thing. How will the rest of the team. Ayla will frank. Clark finally get to have a big game. Will alex okafor across from him. Step up to sean warling. Who will step up and make them not. Dedicate so much attention to chris jones. And when chris jones does get double teams. Can't he beat salman kinley and eric flowers replacement and robert hunt. It's again he should do it. He should have multiple pressures multiple sacks in this kind of game in weeks. Six and seven. Chris jones had a pressure rate of greater than twenty five percent. He has done that twice this season. An absolute monster on the inside. I expect that he's going to do it again. I really legitimately do this. Offensive line is beat up on the interior. They are starting three rookies. That's three rookies to on the inside. I think that's going to be problematic for this chiefs or for this dolphins offensive line. I think chris jones is going to be able to eat. And i think tershawn wharton will as well win. The dolphins visually have to shift and double. I think you're going to see a lot more turk wharton. You're going to see a lot of that. Lateral agility and a lot of that penetration. I do think that the chiefs four man rush will look the best that it has in several weeks this week and i am very very much looking forward to not talking about that. She's four man rush again next week. All right plays the launch craig. Okay i got a little bit of a surprise here. Oh no. I'm going with darius harris if you will go. Darius harris is going to be active he has been active. But you know a primarily special teams guy and i expected. That's probably all that it's going to be. However there is an outside chance that they do not trust. Willie gay junior to kick to the sam linebacker in base against this dolphins team and they just want him to stay in the will off ball role that he's been staying in. And you see maybe a little bit of darius harris come in and play some base defense nets now. it's not gonna be very many. I think the dolphins are gonna lineup primarily with eleven personnel. I think the chiefs are not going to be in their base defense very often but there is an outside chance that we actually see darius harris over been neiman in the base. I know what mattie just said but. Give me my hopes. Give me my dreams. Let's see if the chiefs have a young linebacker that they can feel like can play sam next year. Because if damian wilson isn't good to go and they don't feel like keeping him on the roster. This could be a guide to fill in with those marginal snaps on the fringe next year. Three out of the last four weeks. The dolphins have eclipse one hundred rushing yards. Now they're not a great rushing team but they can't do it. I think getting the rushing attack helps to look a little better as a passer. He's a rookie quarterback it does fit his game style a lot better teams having to play the run a little bit more. The cheese will never fully sell out to stop the run unless they're playing the ravens that's just simply not their style this game with they're going to have to stop the run from even or lighter personnel. That means a lot of it falls onto the shoulders of derek. Nadi who is good for about two or three just absolutely fantastic. Run stuff's every single week that he has no business making that covers a lot of the other guys around the. This'll be a game where he asked. Show up big. We've already talked about kind of what the dolphins have going on on the interior. It's not a great unit. It's another spot. Were not really should be able to shine much like chris jones just in a different way if you shut down whatever. The dolphins are trying to throw out there on the ground. Which again isn't a great attack. But they are going to try it. They are gonna try to run the ball. Naughty could have a big game stuff in them down forcing to a drop back and just throw the ball to keep pace which will play one hundred percent of the chief strengths for me. It's jerry sneed and here's the reason. This guy's got his hand on the football every game of his young nfl career. It hasn't converted to an interception since he got hurt earlier in the season. But i.

"Last year, they took them over draft pick briones speaks and I'm surprised that happened but that's where your eyes have to go. I I don't know if there were any other big surprises on the defensive side of the. Ball. To me now, there wasn't to me either I think that she's went pretty much chalk on the defensive side of the ball I mean we nailed the numbers for each position in our preview there. We actually nailed all the offensive ones with the exception of in running back, which could up by the end of this week in for all we know but I, do think that just right there the couple of decisions right at the very enduring. Oh Daniel, over Darius. Harris. That's definitely a special teams move as we discuss their same with Armani Watts over Adrian Colbert both of those guys are probably special teams move Dave job moves there it is the defensive end decision to keep. Dimona Harris over Berlin speaks it's the most significant probably makes the most difference on the roster going forward here but you know credit deter shorten I. Know we talked a little bit about him credit to the chiefs for finding UDF as Tertia Warton and you sere durant that's that's good scouting. That's good process right there I'm a little surprised. My initial thought about defense is like a little bit surprised during. Daniels. Survived because the chiefs I mean door. No Daniel. Had a limited role defensively, he basically the only time we saw on the field defensively last year was spying Deshaun Watson for like fifteen snaps. It's Kinda. Surprising to see him stick as a special teams only guy. But I, think it's also a little surprising to see tay only have four other linebackers outside of him really on this roster. It's a really thin linebacker group. I love that that she's kept Bulgaria Sneak Peek keys I I love that they were able to keep both of those guys. I'm very fascinated by both of them I think I think legitimate need. You're going to see him in a few days. I. Don't know about Bobby keys yet. We'll see there but those were those were couple of my initial thoughts on top of obviously like. Good Onto Sean Ward, and that's really cool and I'm I'm really excited to see. To see him play. This is a a discussion that we have had a little bit not on the podcast. In the DM's. This I think this came down to. From. A special teams perspective obviously during Daniel is better, but it comes down to what's more important having a backup base will and a backup dime linebacker. That's what Dorian Daniel is or having a backup. You know Mike in your base and in your buck, and we know that been Niemann is going to get those reps I sedan Harris is behind been. Niemann as the backup guy there there wasn't really a guy necessarily to take on that dime linebacker role unless they trust Willie. Gate, hit the field you know in replacement of. Been Niemann going forward here's a dory know Daniel is a more direct backup. Probably, I personally would rather kept areas Harris I think that that's more important position to me, but I can see the logic behind keeping dory. No Daniel particularly special teams and that's Craig and I talked about like he said off before off the podcast but both Dory know Daniel and various Harris or to injuries away from seeing the field on defense essentially, you would need an injury to the starter and then the guy replacing the starter at the position that. They play Dornoch Daniel. Maybe would be your first backup as a dime linebacker I. Think they probably just go with Anthony Hitchens even the I don't even know if you actually lose athleticism, he seems to play a little slower, but he's just as good. If an athlete has been Niemann as Darius Harris would need Anthony Hitchens and Ben even get hurt before he'd get reps at Mike. LINEBACKER. Do I know Daniel would need injuries to Ben Neiman and Damian Wilson or Willie Gay because I, think they would make one of them play will. Before he would win your two players or to injuries removed for being on the field. I think it's purely special teams call Dino, Daniels, a proven quality, special teams player going back to Clemson, and then with the chiefs. If it was just one injury way, you're looking at a primary backup on fine with taking the guy that's not had as much experience even if he's not as good of a special teams player but when it's two of them, I, think you just have to go with the guy that has that experience show already. Paneth.

"Along those same lines what what Sanders asked the fifth or sixth wide receiver position often comes down to their ability to contribute on special teams. What specific traits do you look for in order before determined they're pulling away from the rest of the pack. What we're looking for guys like pringle. Guys like camp guys like Peter. I mean we are so fortunate are wide receiver crew and cores is really really really good on special teams I mean. All the way down the line from from Damarcus on down so It's it's a solid group. You know I, Love McCall I, mean, I love all those guys. The only guy we really don't use as is fourteen. You know I mean besides that everybody has a role on special teams and and every one of them is it brings up to the table. Let's go to Saran. Goodson. Coach around the League. Number of teams choosing not to practice today coach we talked about the conversation that was had yesterday I'm just curious and you know what the tone was whether or not. There was a conversation today what your personal opinion is a modern teams not practicing. Well. I mean, I really feel for what's going on I mean it's a shame that you know we're still dealing with this that's really how I feel about it. But you know our our team is a solid group. They love each other we talk all the time. I. Think Coach really has a great handle on the whole situation. you know he talks with the leaders of our team and. And if some said, you know behind closed doors, I don't hear about everything that goes on you know. But I know there's a Lotta great conversations going on within our Pete Sweeney. God beat. Coach thanks for taking some time. I have just two things I was wondering if you could provide some insight on on what you're seeing right now at the governor position and then I was just curious about what Rodney clements pick could potentially bring to the table. The positions looking pretty good i. mean we we have some good solid depth there. We brought a Antonio Hamilton in from the giants who? Probably was the giants number one gunner Last year, we put the tape on, he made a lot of plays for men. We're really happy to add him know to the mix. So right now I I probably say a Antonio is in the lead with with pringle obviously pringle was gonNA roll year last year, and then we have a number guys behind by them I mean can't he was he was starting gunner for us and and he's really looking really looking good this this all season coming coming off his knee injury he's looking good and. Other guys that can play Robinson COMPLA- it. And complaint I mean there's a there's a number of guys a complete goner for us in in some of these guys are good to you know the you know the needs of the world and Bobby keys I mean they're all Contributors and they're all GONNA help us this year. Time for. Go Adam and then nate go at them. Hey Dave how you doing today. Good Hey just along the lines of what we've been talking about here. Do you have a feel for some of the your younger guys on what you have you mentioned snead a little bit but I was wondering about snead a Willie Gay Darius Harris those kind of guys. Feel for what what you're GONNA get auto them when the season starts. I mean, that's a great question I mean because I mean really you see you see what's going on in practice and you see good things. But when when is live bullets just not going to know until we get in there and play you know I know there's going to be a period of a learning that go on in the first two games with these young players. because. You can't match the speed that you're going to get. An all you can do is talk about it every day we talk about it every day when we watch we watch. Regular, season tapes. So they can see how fast it is, but it's hard to mimic that in practice. So a lot of these guys are going to have to learn on the run and. I think we're in a good position right now we're getting a lot of practice in. We're getting plenty of time to work on things We just we just hope that you know if they do make a mistake, it's not a huge one. But everybody will make a mistake and You know we just move on and don't don't make the same mistake twice I mean that's what we try to do on special teams. Let's go to nate. Taylor finish off at night. Dave. Thanks again. I know you mentioned earlier sort of the discussion going on with the team in relation to everything that's happening in the country another other choose obviously not pricing today, I. I, just wanted to follow that in as you could give perhaps an example that. SORT. Of the unity and sort of the conversation between players and coaches as you guys move closer to opening night considering that you guys are to away now from that being of not being the case about how you want to move forward. I just know more teams close. You know and I know I know we you know. We talk about everything I mean nothing nothing's really. kept kept a secret. You know I mean we. Coach reads one winning sets the table for that you know he he says the table in meetings and. When you know when we're behind closed doors and without talking about everything that we do there I'm just I'm just letting you know that it's an open conversation and everybody. Is Free to say what they want to say. Culture we appreciate the time today. Thank you. Okay. Take care. Morning Tommy Web and talk to you in a a longtime just generally speaking wide net here. How has training camp gone and what makes you think you're ready for your first professional opportunity here A training training camps been awesome. So I mean, it's super exciting I mean it's my. Mind my rookie season, a rookie training camp and. Obviously it's not how I would've expected my rookie training camp go as far as you know like the the Cova precautions and stuff like that but you know. Our south and doing a great job of. Keeping US socially distance and keeping everybody safe. But beyond no training canceling going great and you know I'm really excited to get going to the season. Go to Todd Leo. Tommy been asking a lot of questions of players about the social justice issues. You've probably got a unique perspective is white guy was a young guy who hasn't hasn't been in the league. What sort of conversations been like we heard coach Madison say a lot of conversations run lunch tables and stuff you guys are all having. What have you learn what have you kind of people about Europe bringing and and kind of you know getting along with everyone? Has it been eye-opening for you yet definitely know the biggest thing for me I think is just listening and learning from a for my teammates. You know it's it's always good to step back and learn. and. I think that's that's something that's been happening a lot. You know recently and our our vets and team leaders have been doing a great job of you know bringing awareness in doing everything we can to to start moving forward and create change. So you know that's something I'm looking forward to just keeping this the discussions going and just continuing to Larne. Harold Harold. It's I'm hope you're doing woman My question is pretty much the same question. I've been asking a very player and that is you know you see the news it's hard to kind of stay off the social media Stuff that's happened with George Floyd Jacob Blake and Everything that's happened last four or five years. A common expression, a lot people uses how tired air how exhausted they are. Tired of you and how exhausted our you've seen all this in the Will you know this is this is something that's very new to me in. It's something that is you know a lot of light being shed on it now So I mean I think it's it's definitely something that it's it's sparking inside me. That's making me. WanNa go forward and create change in and do what I can to help out A lot of stuff going on. It's just it is tire aiming even the short period of time that I've really been seeing on social media. It's it's exhausting to see in. You know I I hate CNN I. Hate. Seeing how it affects my teammates and how it affects their families and You know it's obviously not right and it's You know something that's we gotta do better on. We gotta change. Dow Going Sam. ITAMI from the outsider's perspective is seems like punish job making the transition from college fell doesn't really change all that much but.

"Tackle situation. It's Frank Clark Frank Clark is going to destroy their offense of line, and we saw what a healthy Frank Clark started to look like they're at the end of the year. I think Frank Clark is going to live in Denver backfield and I think that drew lock is going to be seeing some ghosts of Frank Clark one. Thornhill may end up with interceptions, but it's going to be because Frank Clark. Pressure drew lock into throw in a bad pass. Nate. H. Thirty two, when Will Ohio state and or New Orleans fans run off the Internet and which player will get him in the most. Heats that is one player per team Mattie. So here's the funny thing. I like a couple of players. Some huge Chris while they and I think I had chauncey Gardiner Johnson is my highest rated sage lesser light guys on these teams. Just they have some overrated players. I'M GONNA, use this moment to talk about more overrated players for both of these teams rather than who's negotiable Wyatt Davis offense, states already getting a lot of pub. He's like Joe Jackson last year. Only less athletic. He's GonNa. He's GonNa. Get all of this pub because he doesn't allow sacks because he just stands in his a big fridge, the middle the offensive of wine that can't move and finish his box. Yes, that's. Still a big fridge that can't move. It sits in the middle of an offensive line that protects him and then for New Orleans, if I have any by particularly overrated here so almost the person's get me in the most trouble is gonna be Tastes Hill because if he shows up, is like actually good. Maybe that changes the outlook. The team like I dunno by New Orleans is much more about drew brees being overrated than it is the team. I can't wait for Justin fields to get drafted by New Orleans and Mattie to just be able to solo. All of that energy in one spot. that he I mean I'm not trying to out here, but you have some Mike. Thomas takes too. Yeah, no, and I think there's zero chance that might Thomas Downfield threat this year. Restock the football so like he can't get me trouble. He's one hundred percent catching four yard pass this year unless James Roles Ed, which the clearly by Thomas was made by Janus which works for my brand to like. It's a win. Win Situation Get. Mr Viagi endure Daniel or Darius Harris. Carve out roles other than on special teams this year are linebacker core is still a problem, even with Willie Gay added in. I keep kind of hammering home that during Daniel needs a big, big, big massive step forward and order to claim any sort of reps especially if they've got willie gay out, there I think the coverage linebacker role is going to be kind of handed to Willie Gay, so Dory Daniels got to prove that he should be on the field instead of an Anthony Hitchens as a mike and we haven't seen anything at all to believe that he could do that sort of thing, Darius Harris on the other hand might end up pushing for maybe some. Some Sam Reps by the end of the year Damian. Wilson I think is going to get that role once they move willy gay over the will linebacker role but Darius. Harris, I know they like a lot so I'd be very curious to see I think that he is going to be a special teams guy I think he will probably make the team. Just be curious to see if they give him some reps there with Damian Wilson. At the end of the year chiefs daily fifteen. What are each of your predictions on Patrick Mahomes, touchdown to? And ratio next season let's go. Let's go. Eight to one. I think he's I think he's going to continue to just have low interception rates I really do I. He doesn't put the ball at risk the same like he. Tough throws aren't risks for him. It's remarkable watching that man I'd forty touchdowns, five interceptions eight, two one. Nine and going to be surprised in the slightest I'm gonNA. Go six to one and I thought that I was being out there eater limb there six to one is still excellent like. It just yeah like forty eight touchdowns and eight interceptions or something like that just really kind of drive home that he he is in that upper echelon of quarterback now and forever I three years that he plays in league just this elite level, so I'm going six to one. I mean I being a lot more I. Guess Pessimistic Than You guys. I'm going five point three, seven, five, two one. I think he's GonNa have forty three touchdown passes with eight interceptions. You know he's GonNa. Run INS three more so if we want to. To count those with the one extra fumble weaken adjusted if we want to, we don't, but yeah I mean. I think that's what we're looking at here. Defense is going to be good enough. He's not going to have to throw fifty, but the interceptions are going to be low. How many decimal points did you go out to their? What's what's the rounding her? I I would I went to thousands. Okay, okay Derek reeling. Do you see cornerback luxurious need lining up in the slots on the outside as third safety or some combination? Combination of all three ashed tag I feel the need for their i. feel the need the need for snead fantasy question. What do you got I? Honestly, don't know yet. I hope they play on the outside. That's where I thought he looked the best I think his size and speed combination works the best therapy, but they've also talked about his versatility. I don't know who the second slot defenders across tired. Matthew like I think. Legitimate could very much be in the running for some reps there, but I like his just his play. Play on the outside better, but the same can be said for shot Finn. And how many like guys do you want to pigeon hole as outside corners, not slot guy so i. think he would get the shot inside before Finn Woods. That's the only reason that I have any hesitation to say. Outside believe Saint Madison mentioned him as a guy that could potentially played inside, too, so you may not be out. You may not be far off their Cap'n Danny asks. What non round item also read as not meant to be thrown..

"But I have no regrets there but Hollywood over here Hollywood Swanson okay. Let's just okay. So yeah I I Y on TV. A couple times to promote the Casey draft guide which you can now get secretly. We're we're just announcing this today for seven dollars and fifty four cents. You are getting the previous customer. Discount of seven fifty four this week because there's only a few days left you know so gum dot co slash. Casey Draft Guide Twenty Twenty Promo Code draft myths will get it to you for seven dollars and fifty four sets and we've got three hundred pages of of chiefs draft contact And it's yeah. It's a beast okay. We've got a couple of five star review questions. If you like the show. If you like what we're doing you know hit that subscribe button and then leave a five star review on your platform. We would really appreciate. It helps us. Sp nation likes it when that happens. So Casey Kevin Guy Asks. Should we take? Bj kisule's recent take with Dane burglar that Darius Harris is a linebacker chiefs like and may cause them to place a lower priority on a will linebacker creek. I do think that they liked areas Harris. I don't think the Darius Harris isn't necessarily going to be a will that Steve spagnolo is going to trust that. Really Kinda fits everything that he wants out of his well linebacker. But then again Damian. Wilson wasn't either and he played will for most of the year. So who knows? Darius Harris may be a will linebacker for the chiefs but he seems like one of those guys that they've just kind of stashed on the roster that may be a depth piece going forward kind of like Tim O. J. plummer in a little bit long answer but you guys are GonNa get a kick out of this. I just gentlemen. I'm loving all the content and the pivot from renaissance man to cancel new found fame crate after the draft last year before. Ot as you guys talked about a lot about depth the chiefs had going into the season because of the quality UDF as they were able to sign with the lack of Da- draft capital in the offseason moves. I was wondering how much the debt actually helped them made our slash made the active roster and by comparison. How much of a contribution fans can expect out of the this year you. Dfa Class so okay. So like I think the take is a little bit more layered than that. The cheese bill a phenomenal ninety man roster. I think they did an outstanding job building competition on that roster and competition is very important and it breeds a really quality fifty three man roster so there was a lot of guys vying for the opportunity to make this football team and some of them didn't some of them did but they were all pushed to a level that you know. I think really obviously saw success. There was competition the running back room. I think with Darwin Thompson coming in. And you got Daryl Williams. You've got guys like that. That are adding you know competition. I think that's really. The root of it is the quality guys. They're all vying for opportunities. They're all pushing some of the other guys and the best fifty three wind up coming the the cream rises to the top. And that's that's kind of how I look at it. They did have some really quality. Udf as and you saw various war to in previous years they definitely got contribution out of those guys and it ultimately the best fifty three one out in two of those. They won the Super Bowl. Let's go ahead and jump to the twitter questions. Keith McLean. I like this one. He Asks Mo more likely each draft someone ranked below fifty in the KC draft guide at thirty two or trades back out of the first round. Mattie here's your cop guys most likely I think to go. It takes thirty two outside of top fifty. I think you could make a case for somebody like Brandon. I if she's really like him. He's thirty two when they're trying to get a developmental wide receiver. I think that you could make a small case for Jordan Brooks. I know there's been some hype on him. That's kind of picked up lately Linebacker that could seek into the first round. I think that require a lot of linebackers going around one though I think the Big One. This is the one that makes his closest Jalen. Johnson is outside of our top fifty. I think a lot of that kind of stuff because some of us get awfully around the more of his tape. Some of the beano better like viewing experience of his tape until later on process. So then Jalen Johnson's one. That makes a Lotta Sense. That could be the big thirty two that said I think trading out of thirty two is probably more likely than even. Just drafting one of those three players right there. I expect them to trade back most likely in if they stick there. I think it's a really good value cell which the only one of those guys that I think you could even consider like a great value would be Janelle Johnson like like I just said he's outside our top safety. So you know thirty to fifty. That doesn't lineup so trade backs much more likely for me. I agree I think is trade back yet. Jalen is really the only guy he. He had some rough games. This year I ended up grading more rough games for them. I tried to get as many as possible and on him but you know he had good ones yet rough ones that drove his great down a little more than it's probably the consensus but the way that we do things that led to him being a little lower in the guide so Jaylen Johnson really. I think the only one that reasonably could go at thirty two. That is below fifty Casey draft guide. Honestly like me I got. I got more work on him. Done on Jalen Johnson after the draft and I think you know if the guide released today would probably be a little bit higher than this too. I mean we have still doing some work on process just because I want to. 'cause it's fine. I'll just be real with you if Brett. Vh takes someone like outside of the top fifty. I'm I'm probably happy if it's outside because like honestly we've been burned before there's been guys out outside of the top one hundred that has been taken earlier than so like fifties an improvement in the fifty to one hundred range. That's progress if you ask me. Bruins speaks and Russell two thousand eighteen. Would you rather have Logan Wilson in the third round linebacker at a Wyoming or Colorado linebacker Davey and Taylor in the fourth? You know this is. I can't even play to my normal bit here. Logan Wilson in the third is such a significantly better fit for the chiefs than Davy on Taylor in the fourth. I know a lot of chiefs fans really liked debut on Taylor. Because he's fast I made like. He's got legit speed but the man cannot linebacker. He is a safety. He is an overhang. He doesn't do the things that Steve Spagnolo was linebackers to do. And if you are going to try and address safety there are a number of other safeties that I would rather target especially at the draft value. That they're going to have. I think that you could target an early safety. Get significantly more impact and trying to wait and get a Davy on Taylor a little bit later. Logan Wilson is big enough. He's got good enough coverage he could fit in interior gap. He can do everything. That Steve spagnolo wants. His will linebacker. So in that regard I would much rather take Logan Wilson in the Third Logan Wilson at ninety six is about the right now. You don't think he's going to make it that for though. I think his height is really picking up. I'm assuming that means teams are really liking him when they have gotten together meetings with your skype or whatever it is going on. I would take him at ninety six. I think that is about spot on Davy on Taylor even disclosed to be in the fifth round and even my issue with the Taylor is he'd like Craig said he hasn't played the position at town. He's very raw. He is really play linebacker if he's also older prospects so it's not like he's a guy that's coming in at twenty years old that you have all this extra time the mold to something like his football ages very young because of some religious things that held his back his ability to play a lot of ice will but in college. He had plenty of time in college. You're not disputing this. Twenty year old twenty one year old Guy Stuffy flashes. I just don't want to spend the time to teach mattie get better because I just think the upside isn't quite there like it would be with somebody that's a little bit younger Ryan Scott Hall our dear pal. He says described the worst case. Scenario one to thirty one and then make the pick at thirty two please and thank you. I'm I don't think he's wanting us to list one through thirty one. Maybe this was just.

"I was a little nervous about guys like Frank Zabul making team because it does seem like Dave tobe has so much influence on the roster on the bottom of that roster. So some of these lottery ticket types last year like Ben Neiman. You were nervous. They were going to be able to make the team because the, you know, Dave tobe guys that he's historically. How we're gonna wind up taking those spots. You ask any chief's fan, and I think the most common answer as to our what does this team still need whether right or wrong? I don't necessarily agree with it. But it's, it's always. Cornerback. They have a lottery ticket there and more fields as you've jumped into his film, would you say, so we actually had Craig do the, the piece here on this lottery ticket, but I know plenty about Mark Fields because we thought he was an early day, three draftable prospect. And he really I mean he he's more talented than Rishaad fit and their sixth round pick. There's just concerns about Mark Fields off the field. Maybe some coach ability concerns. But if he comes in, in, in, in shows that he is coach -able that he can learn that he can be consistent on and off the field. He is a remarkable remarkable, but he's an excellent talent. I it's surprising that he was able to go undrafted. He came into the national championship game at Clemson against Alabama and employed excellent in their in their national championship win. He's kind of a smaller guys, probably going to wind up being a slot corner, but. Really intriguing athletic profile made plays on the ball real sticky and call coverage. I'm a big fan of him. I think he's got a great chance to make this team if he can, you know, prove that he can be trusted by the chiefs. I think you have three locks cornerback to make the team and its KENDALL fuller, the shod, Berlin Taveras ward. And after that, I mean who knows. And again, I think Fenton probably has good chances given the fact that he was a draft pick, but who knows. I mean that's going to be another position of watch a training camp. And you're gonna like the fact that there is this competition that exists in the depth of this team. Can't before we move on. We're going to talk to Craig south after the break. But before we do that, just some I are candidates who you think may be good bets for the chiefs down the line. So the chiefs have done some really smart stuff here. They've been very creative, and how they're billing this roster. And they've taken some guys that they like from the undrafted free agent pool that they can mystery. I are or keep on the I Tyler Bray honorary, I are spa. Correct. Maybe even by. Pingo wink, wink nod nod last year, you never know with him but. Thirty. You can sit you. Reports hernia wink, they've been so they've been so aggressive about saying man his recovery went really well, okay. We'll see. I, I never I never believe it. Well, but Tim ward, a guy from Old Dominion, he was oceans, administer at at Old Dominion. And I think the chiefs basically said Brett veep said he was a Steve Spagnolo prototype, defensive end prospect, and the chiefs. He may not play this year. He may not even really practice this year. But the chiefs stashed him on, on their roster. I think he's on the pup list right now. But he's a guy that could make a lot of sense. Another one is, is Darius, Harris a linebacker from middle Tennessee State, he's kinda dealing with some injuries right now. But he was a pretty hot prospect on the undrafted free agent market as well. It's not a good time in, in the in the world and the universe of the Kansas City Chiefs to be in your late twenties early thirties because they are just. Stacking with younger like twenty year old guys. I think a little bit in the past few years. She's felt little old. And now there's like the young guns. I think there's only three or four players that are thirty or older on the chiefs. I think it's Mitch wards just turned thirty over the weekend. I think he makes the fourth person..

"And I do agree with credit? Anthony Hitchens is gonna be your starting Mike linebacker now. Like, I said unless bigger fan of gay Johnson than he is. I watched a lot of Texas games live in after like the third one. I think I sent a message to our group is Craig's watching. Actually, Craig what do you think of Gary Johnson? Because this guy literally is everywhere. I cannot watch Texas game. I'm watching any other player. Whether it's Chris Boyd a receiver against Charles human. These linebacker is literally everywhere every single play. I'm not trying to break him down. I just keep seeing him fly all over the place. And I would agree. I don't think he plays at the speed that he ran at the combine on the field. He just happens to show up everywhere. So I liked the fact that he is able to track the ball that. And then you put it with that lettuces him. He's a guy as he sees stuff happened. He can get there. Quick don't think he's afraid to contact. He's not the best stacking shutting guy Craig said, he's a little shorter to he has to engage guys directly in front of you kinda like Devon Bush in that regard. If you lined him up in a gap and to take someone on it's fine. He's just not going to be able to scrape across a block and keep them off of him. So I do think he's a little bit more limited to a Mike instead of a will. But he has the range of silent sideline. He's not loss. In covers there's tools to work with. I think she's going should take some time for him to get there. I do like the upside the gay Johnson has I would not I am very excited that he made it on the chiefs undrafted free agents say do think he's a guy that can work him. What his way into fighting for a starting spot in a year to. He's making the fifty three he's making the fifty three. I think he's about the surest lock of any of the FAA's to make the fifty three. They don't have depth at linebacker. They don't have solid debt that linebacker. No, people love been Neiman. Gary Johnson has a significantly higher ceiling that been Neiman does. And Reggie Ragland isn't on this team after this year. Even if he makes us team one of the things I was looking at and we're going gonna talk about defense. But we're we've got all summer to talk about defense in you guys are gonna have a lot of questions about the defense. That's partially. Why I wanted to go offense today, the you're right? The linebacker depth is it's not good. It's very good correspond to she gets. That's he was gonna go. That's where I was going. If he has no special teams valium plays at a high level on special teams. He will get afforded the opportunity to develop into a Pintul potential, Mike the one thing I listened to Brett visas post draft press conference they like Darius sound like he liked. Darius Harry's hair terrier hairs series. Yeah. They like Darius Harris the linebacker from middle. Tennessee State it sounded like he liked him more than Gary Johnson order to get him. Like, I do talk more badly seemed really high on it. But it sounded like there was a lot of teams banged on the door for Harris. So I don't I don't know if it means he does or doesn't like it more mentioned role. But it seemed like there was a lot of interest in Harris whose even injured he went on to be ready this year the way it sounds great. But there was interest there for him. And basically said he doesn't have this chance to make the roster some day, you might have a chance to start. Art, Harris, he singled out Harris a guy could start. So one thing I do like about what the done with their undrafted free agents. I like a lot of what they've done. I think they've got the best class of undrafted free agents. I've seen in a long time with his group. But the fact that they went and got Tim ward and Darius Harris who might just be red shirts. Basically get him in the building get him in the system..

"ESPN. We head to the fourth quarter back out to New Orleans once again with the infant Simmons on the sidelines and alongside David Norrie. Here's Bill rosinsky. Thanks John Brickley. And this crew will be there in Dallas for that game to broadcast it across the country on ESPN radio should be a lot of fun Upson. And the fighting Irish at Notre Dame. We start the fourth quarter app state leading thirty eight to thirteen and it's going to be second out in tab at their thirty four with left or right. There's a snap. They got the jet. Sweep coming around near right side. Williams is Brexit tackle excuse me. This is Virgil back up to the fifty yard line still going nice run by Jalen Virgil Melik man, seal finally made the tackle. And we got a flag that came in way. That's a nice armed by that back judge. He threw it about fifteen yards. Let's see what this penalty is for. Waiting to hear from crew personal foul unnecessary roughness defense number thirty fifteen yard penalty automatic. I out that is on Darius Harris, and too many personal fouls. David to go along with any attempt by middle Tennessee to get back in this game. You look across the board of middle, Tennessee. Keep going back to the start of the game. They were on point. They're playing shark very sharply offensively defensively. Committed so many steaks and penalties and turnovers, and it's just been it's been a bad ballgame over the course of the last couple of quarters is a quarterback keep on the left side. Zach Thomas was able to beat the defender around the corner, finally, Gregory great Cottam from behind it. And makes the tackle down around the fifteen yard line. Never on the last series, three Blankenship. They're strong safety got hurt on the intersection. He can't get back in the football game. And right now apps on the move first and ten at the fifteen looked like Blankenship on the interception. The second of the game. He fell awkwardly on the elbow and. He hasn't returned. He's been one of the few bright spots defensively for the blue raiders tonight. While the fifteen at moving left to right Williams running back play action fake to him. Now. Here's a toss in the right corner. Incomplete going for Dominic any no chance to catch that one. That'll be second down Randolph on the coverage. Here the numbers through three quarters middle. Tennessee fifty six plays three hundred nineteen yards apps. State forty-nine plays three hundred eighty six yards app. States turned it over three times and the blue raiders twice actually time of possession. Still six minutes, David in favor of middle Tennessee. But a lot of that came in the first half coming from Fitzsimmons down on the field. The official word on Blankenship is a shoulder. Second down. Call running playwright side Williams trying to beat the defender, and he is dragged down from behind might have been a horse, Colorado. Flag wine judge right there did not throw a flag tackled around the eleven that was Gregory great made the stop on Marcus Williams. It'll be third down. Just shy of the ten state just continues to pound the football over the course of time. Game. They've strung together a number of scoring drives and this offensive line. They really have played well since midway through the first quarter and kind of take over this football game. They are six of nine on third down conversions by the way. So this'll be third down and six me eleven yard line Williams. The running back out of the pistol play action fake him. Here's a toss by Thomas middle hands out. Touchdown. Stay Corey suck right over the middle. And that could be the dagger to win this football game Cornell Hudson beaten on the coverage app now had forty four to thirteen just a post route skinny post route working for the left side of the middle of the end zone. And again, it's been a tough night for core Cordell. Hudson gory Sutton as a wideout has happened himself at night another score. Another good throw the ball. The ball is actually a little bit thrown behind the receiver on the post route nice adjustment, by Sutton. And he's had a heck of a night extra point is up by Chandler state nad inside the right upright. But that's good. So abstain takes control again marching down field was a a drive aided again by a personal foul penalty. And they have a commandingly thirteen o six remaining in our game..

"Much every game Georgia Southern collected five turnovers in the first game. Zach Thomas, and that's Bill doom for app state. But it is a good solid team middle Tennessee State to a team that we can move the ball stock still is he's got a little bit of time to pass these top of the line. And you've got leeann Smith to pretty good receivers that teamed up for thirteen touchdowns over thirteen hundred yards and one hundred twenty one reception between them out of the backfield not bad stock. Still strewn for twenty eight just eight picks and he's rushed through two more on the defensive side of the ball. Darius Harris ninety two tackles, but read Blankenship back guy sophomore as one hundred and one tackles to book Brooks, a pretty solid linebacker was six and a half. Tackle Cincinnati have sacks and sixty five tackles on the season about a name. Thomas. Seven sacks anybody's got the Dairy Queen initials, man, that's cool by me. And then on the other side of the ball game. Appalachian state is the team with Jordan, fair solid. Linebacker leading the way here. Several key components on the offensive side of the ball to help out. Zach Thomas, including Evans Williams out of the backfield over sixteen hundred yards eleven TD's and Sutton and he to dynamite receivers. They also have thirteen touchdowns between Joe where are you on this one? Middle Tennessee State. I mean, I go back to stocks though, he's completing seventy percent of his passes and this middle Tennessee State last year, they defeated Arkansas state, even though last year, they found a way to go here and thirty five to thirty challenge. Appalachia state secondary secondary only giving up one hundred forty passing yards for game. Entirely on the outside the more. I think it's the speed. Thomas into a high scoring game. And I like it. Okay. The over here. Even though it looks like on paper comedian. I like middle Tennessee State and the over in this ball game. All.

Couple seniors keep an eye on for two lane. The tight end Charles Jones has been on my radar couple years now six three two hundred fifty five pounds. And then they've got a senior corner as well. Donald Lewis six foot hundred ninety three pounds. We'll see how both these guys look in their final college game New Mexico bowl, Utah state, North Texas. Yeah. Utah state. It's got a few guys. You know? The Dax Raymond is that underclassmen tight end a mentioned earlier who declared for the draft and he's going to be at the senior bowl. This'll be his final game. And then they've got a wide receiver. They're Utah state into run Cueva beyond Tarver six three two hundred fifteen pounds high volume kid has been a big time playmaker. For them. I'm interested to see how he looks in this game going up against North Texas. They've got some talent there on defense Roderick young as a defensive tackle, obviously, not going to be involved. There was stopping Tarver. But the they've got some guys that people are high on. So keep an eye out for Ron quavered Tarver the wide receiver for Utah state. And then they also have a draft eligible running back and. Darwin thomson. He was on Bruce feldmans freak list over the summer five eight one hundred ninety pounds Juku transfer, but he can impact the game as both a runner end as a receiver so three offensive weapons there for Utah state to watch in that early bowl game and then eras state Fresno state in Las Vegas boat. Yeah. Known Akil Harry in this game the wide receiver who declared for the draft. He's not going to partake but the quarterback for hours on state Mandy Wilkins. This guy's playing in his last college game. He's under six to some people do like him around the country. So keep an eye out for him. They've got a couple interesting players though. I mean, I mentioned Ronel ran the defensive tackle. But look keep it on some of these younger guys. I mean, they've got a junior offensive tackle Cole cable who was second team all conference this year big kid, who's got some experience. And then look at some of these playmakers offensively, you know, the sophomore Benjamin was first team all conference this year excels at making people miss. I'm excited to get get is on this kid and then on the other side of the football. They've got a tr-. Freshman linebacker Merlin Robinson was the defensive freshman of the year in the Pac twelve led the team with seventy seven tackles eight and a half tackles for loss. Five sacks six three two hundred thirty five pounds, very very interesting kid, and then you look at Fresno state. Look, they've got a senior quarterback, Marcus mcnary. And who was on the senior bowl watchlist entering the year. But the guy that you need to watch his Keyshawn Johnson senior wide receiver very very shocked. This kid hasn't been announced for the senior bowl yet. But six one hundred ninety six pounds. Good speedy rolls out of the stats. I can attack vertically down the field. He's got velcro hands runs. Good routes one of the better route runners that I've studied so far in this class. I really liked Keyshawn Johnson lot the camelia bills Georgia Southern eastern Michigan into see eastern. Michigan. Only remember them heaven anybody that stood out to me all that much as a as a pro prospect. What about the New Orleans bowl middle, Tennessee State? Yeah. So the middle Tennessee they've got the quarterback. Brent stock. Was planning his final game. Six foot two Twenty-one undersize kid. The son of Rick stocks owes the had coached there. And then Darius Harris is a linebacker for middle Tennessee as well. Six to twenty seven was on that watchlist entering the season. But then you look over at app state.
