Five things to watch against the Falcons

Watching the game Friday night? Here’s what to focus on.

There are mini-milestones between the NFL Draft and the regular season that keep fans mildly entertained. The rookie minicamps right after the draft give you first reports on what the new players look like. OTAs might bring a new name or two some attention that you weren’t expecting. The first day of training camp. The first preseason game.

All those are past us, and being tempted with sort-of football loses it’s luster quick....

The Chiefs battle the Falcons in their second preseason game of the 2018 season Friday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium

We have a rarity on our hands—a Chiefs game day on a Friday night.

The Kansas City Chiefs travel to Atlanta Friday night to take on the Falcons in their second preseason game of the season. Head coach Andy Reid has said that quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the first-team offense will play the entire first half.

One of the stories coming out of the game last week was how...

Chiefs know pass-protection problems will limit Patrick Mahomes

The Chiefs missed on a big play during the first preseason game because of protection issues. They're not crying about it, but they do need to fix it.

Chiefs’ first-team offense will play entire first half

After the Chiefs’ first-team offense failed to score on two possessions in the first preseason game, coach Andy Reid said, “Too many mistakes with this game, but that’s what the preseason is for.” Apparently, the Chiefs coach wants to see more out of them this week. Patrick Mahomes and the starting offensive unit will play [more]

Could we see the Chiefs use more vertical route concepts against the Falcons on Friday night?

These route concepts are a good way to attack Atlanta’s defense, so expect to see more of them.

Patrick Mahomes took over as the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs this year, and that change came with certain expectations.

Among the most common is that the Chiefs will be “more fun to watch” to their fans — or fans of football in general. Mahomes is known as a gunslinger — a QB who isn’t afraid to take chances, and will sling The Duke all over the field.

He has all the natural...

Actually, Patrick Mahomes’ rookie contract won’t help the Chiefs win more games

A counterpoint for a common narrative accepted in Kansas City sports.

Over the past few years while writing for this lovely site, I’ve heard the following sentiment many, many times:

Rookie quarterbacks and their cheap contracts help teams succeed. Teams with cheap quarterbacks can carry an additional player which they may not have been able to afford with a veteran quarterback. That extra player really helps push teams over the hump.

All this is relevant right now because Patrick Mahomes...

Checking in on former Chiefs safety Ron Parker ahead of Friday night

The Chiefs will see Parker, now a member of the Atlanta Falcons, on Friday night The Kansas City Chiefs take on the Atlanta Falcons in their second preseason game of the season on Friday night at 6 p.m. Arrowhead Time, meaning we’ll have an opportunity to check in on an old friend—safety Ron Parker. The Chiefs cut Parker this offseason after five seasons with the club, a move that saved the team nearly $5 million in cap (but one it may be second-guessing now). Parker caught on with the...

Never forget that NFL coaches look at preseason games differently than we do

It’s fun to have opinions about what happens in preseason, but we just don’t see it the same way coaches do

Please... take a breath. It’s all going to be OK.

It happens every preseason, but it’s still always amazing to watch NFL fans — specifically Kansas City Chiefs fans — lose their minds after the first preseason game.

It doesn’t matter if the Chiefs win or lose the game. There’s always something that gets people riled up, and ready to write off the whole season —...

Chiefs’ second depth chart shows offensive line position shakeup

The chart, released by the Chiefs’ PR department, is considered “unofficial.”

The Kansas City Chiefs released the second version of their depth chart earlier this week as they get ready to take on the Atlanta Falcons on Friday night at 6 p.m. Arrowhead Time.

As a reminder, the chart is considered “unofficial,” though it is reviewed by the team before release. Here is the first version of the chart.
