Andy Reid Explains QB Playing Time for G personalized NFL football merchandise ame on Saturday vs. Bengals

The Chiefs travel to take on the Bengals Saturday night at 6:00 p.m. CT

According to Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, veteran quarterback Alex Smith will play the entire first half of Saturday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The game is set to kick off in Cincinnati at 6:00 pm. CT, and can be seen locally on KCTV5.

Following Smith will be rookie first-round pick Patrick Mahomes, who will step in with the second-team offense to play the third quarter, and then Tyler Bray will take the fourth.

After Wednesday’s final training camp practice of the year, Smith spoke about what he’s seen from the quarterbacks at camp this year.

“I feel like everybody has had a good camp,” Smith explained. “Everybody kind of feeds off of each other. Who is going to be the guy to go out there and makes the play, and makes the throw? It has been fun.”

It’s also been considered by many inside the locker room as Smith’s best camp in his five years with the Chiefs, and it carried over  Custom Womens Steelers Jersey to the first preseason game last Friday night against the 49ers.

In his one drive with the first-team offense, Smith led them down the field for a touchdown—converting two big third downs on the drive and hooking up with second-year standout Tyreek Hill for a 32-yard gain on the first play of  custom vikings jersey the game.

For those who have been at camp at all this year, Smith’s performance in that game was just more of the same of what we’ve seen at practice. Smith finished 4 of 6 for 48 yards, and had a key 10-yard scramble that converted a big third down.

Outside of Smith’s excellent camp performance and consistent connection with Hill, there has been a lot of talk and Custom Womens Eagles Jersey  a lot of eyes on Mahomes, who was moved up to the No. 2 quarterback spot this week. Mahomes went 7 of 9 for 49 yards and a touchdown last week against the 49ers in his first NFL action. 

“Being the quarterback of any football team, you’re going to compete and you’re going to go out there and work hard to make each other better. At the same time, make the team better,” Mahomes sa custom womens vikings jersey id of the competition.

As was discussed plenty when he was first drafted, the opportunity for Mahomes to learn from a veteran like Smith every day was something that was really going to help him develop as a player, and that’s proven to be the case.

“I learn a ton from Alex,” Mahomes explained. “Just having him in front of me, you can’t even explain how much he teaches me on the sidelines. He’s always helping me out. And at the same time, we are always pushing each other to be better every single day.”

For Bray, who took the second-team reps last week against the 49ers, the opportunity Saturday night is a big one. He went 5 of 8 for 63 yards with an interception against the 49ers.

“It’s a competition,” Bray explained Wednesday after practice. “The season hasn’t started yet. I don’t think it’s a set depth chart, I just know [Mahomes] is going in there and getting some second-team reps.”

Overall, Reid said the plan for this week’s game will be a little different than the one against the 49ers.

“Not everybody will play this game,” Reid explained. “Everybody will be ready to play, but not everybody will necessarily play this game like the last game. We’ll get good work in against a good football team, and that’s the most important thing right now.”

The Chiefs are preparing to face the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots in the NFL’s opening game of the 2017 s Custom Womens Patriots Jersey eason on Thursday, September 7, which is just three weeks away.

Andy Reid Says Chiefs personalized NFL football merchandise  “Took it Up a Notch” at Training Camp This Year

The time in St. Joseph has come to an end

For the Kansas City Chiefs’ players, coaches and staff, the comradery built and work put in over the past three weeks at training camp will now carry them towards a season that’s full of hope and optimism.

This was the fifth year that head coach Andy Reid brought his group to Missouri Western State University for camp, and after practice Wednesday, Reid spoke about what he saw from the guys this year.

“We’ve been able to take it up a notch,” Reid said. “These guys have taken that challenge to heart. This group never says anything, they just work. From a head coaching standpoint, that’s a beautiful thing. You can get a whole lot done.”

The Chiefs had 19 practices in total since the  Custom Womens Patriots Jersey rookies and quarterbacks first reported July 24, and up until Wednesday, they never had to go indoors because of weather.

And then about halfway through Wednesday’s practice, the rain started falling and storms came in that caused the final half of practice to move inside.

It allowed for a pretty cool scene after practice the with military service men and women in attendance for Military Appreciation Day.

Aside from Wednesday, the weather at camp this year was fantastic, which allowed Reid and his group to get a lot of work done.

“I thought we got a lot done this camp,” Reid added. “I think schematically we probably got a little more done than in years past. We challenged them like crazy this year in all three phases of the game. With the weather cooperating the way it did, you can get away with doing that.

“I thought the guys functioned at a high level.”

Quarterback Alex Smith agreed.

“I think this camp has been great,” Smith said. “I feel like every day we have taken a stab, we have gotten better. We have gotten something out of it. Guys have brought it. It is hard some days when you are back to back to b Custom Womens Steelers Jersey ack in the pads and the long days in heat. It is easy to slip into the mindset of jus Custom Womens Eagles Jersey t kind of trying to get through it.

“I feel like our guys have brought energy every day.

For a Chiefs’ team that’s gone 43-21 with three playoff appearances over the past four years, the idea that this was their most productive camp and they “took it up a custom womens vikings jersey  notch” just adds to the optimism surrounding this group.  

The Chiefs are set for their second preseason game of the year, which takes place Saturday night at 6:00 p.m. CT against the Cincinnati Bengals on the road. The game can be seen locally on KCTV5.

Chiefs vs. Bengals: Five Things t Toronto Blue Jays MLB Jersey o Watch

The Chiefs and Bengals kick off Saturday night at 6:00 p.m. CT

The Kansas City Chiefs are multitasking right now.

In fact, it’s not only the Chiefs that are doing this; it’s everyone around the league.

The Chiefs are simultaneously preparing for their season opener against the New England Patriots (September 7, Thursday Night Football), which happens to be less than three weeks away. But Toronto Blue Jays MLB Baseball Merchandise  they’re also in the process of evaluating a deep and talented roster full of many players who will be playing for other teams in a few weeks.

It’s a good problem to have and one that NFL teams seek to put themselves into—having too few of spots for too many good players.

And for the Chiefs, there are still roster spots up for grabs and these last three preseason games will go a long way in determining who gets those final few spots. The 53-man roster has to be set by Saturday, September 2 at 3:00 p.m. CT.

At that date and around that time, more than 1,200 players from across the league will become free agents at the same time. It’s going to be crazy.

The Chiefs will also have to identify and sign the 10 players to their practice squad, and so a lot is riding on these three games for guys hoping to continue their dreams of playing professional football.

So, as the Chiefs get set to take on Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey  the Bengals in their second preseason game, which can be seen locally on KCTV5 (CBS), coach Andy Reid mentioned that playtime for this game would be split up differently than last week.

“Not everybody will play this game,” Reid noted. “Everybody will be ready to play, but not everybody will necessarily play this game like the last game. We’ll get good work in against a good football team, and that’s the most important thing right now.”

Here are five things to watch during the ga Joe Carter Jersey me:

1. Will the quarterbacks fire it deep early once again?

In the Chiefs’ first preseason game against the 49ers, the first offensive play for Alex Smith, Tyler Bray, and Patrick Mahomes were deep shots down the field.

Reid let each of them air it out.

Smith’s was caught by Tyreek Hill for a gain of 32 yards, and then Bray and Mahomes both had their long completions called back because of penalties. Bray’s 83-yard touchdown to Chris Conley was called back because of offensive pass interference, and Ma Josh Donaldson Jersey homes’ 41-yard strike to Demarcus Robinson was called back because of holding.

Final lines for each of those three quarterbacks against the 49ers:

Smith – 4 of 6 for 48 yards.

Bray – 5 of 8 for 63 yards and an interception

Mahomes – 7 of 9 for 49 yards and a touchdown

It’ll be interesting to see how much of the passing game is opened up Saturday considering much of the talk all week during practice was about the running game. The Chiefs ran the ball 14 times fo Kevin Pillar Jersey r just 31 yards (2.2 yards per carry) against the 49ers.

As far as playing time, Reid said Smith will play the first half of Saturday’s game, with Mahomes, who was promoted just this week to the No. 2 spot, taking the third quarter, and Bray holding down the fourth.

2. Will we see the return of a couple of key veterans?

After being a full participant in practice recently, there’s a good chance we see the return of All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce, who missed some practice time and the game last week with a swollen knee.

Over the past few days, Kelce has looked like the guy who led the team with 85 receptions and more than 1,100 yards last year, and he could make his return to the field just four miles away from where he played in college at the University of Cincinnati. Expect him to be excited if he’s out there.

On a somewhat related note, the NFL is allowing more celebrations this year. Just saying.

Another guy who could potentially return is veteran defensive lineman Bennie Logan, who also missed time recently with a sore knee but was back on the field practicing this week.

Second-year defensive lineman Chris Jones, who also returned to practice recently as he was brought off the PUP (physically unable to perform) list, wasn’t a participant during the team or 9-on-7 periods of practice. But Logan was, which is why there’s a better chance we’d see Logan if we see either of them.

If he’s out there, Logan is a guy to watch. He’s been virtually unblockable during 1-on-1 drills. & Toronto Blue Jays nbsp; 

3. Size off the edge

Rookie Tanoh Kpassagnon is a guy to watch for the Chiefs’ defense.

Last week against the 49ers, Kpassagnon (No. 92) lined up at nose tackle, defensive end, and outside linebacker.

At 6-feet-7 and 289 pounds, the physical ability he has is ridiculous.

“I don’t know if I’ve ever seen that before,” Chiefs defensive line coach Britt Reid said of Kpassagnon earlier this week, just hours after he covered a wheel-route 20 yards down the field during an 11-on-11 drill. “He’s unique. That’s unbelievable some of the stuff he can do.”

While he’s far from a finished product, the ability Kpassagnon possesses will be pressed and developed by Reid and this defensive coaching staff, and he’s a guy to watch for Saturday. There is no player comparison for what he can do with his size and athleticism.

“I think he’s done an amazing job, and credit to him Custom Blue Jays Jersey  he’s one of the more coachable guys I’ve ever been around,” Reid added. “He’s able to pick up something really fast and do it in individual, but then also transfer it to the field.

“I was really impressed with the way he held up inside on double teams and playing the run in that first preseason game.”

4. Will the running game get going?

The Chiefs didn’t light up the stat sheet running the ball in their first preseason game against the 49ers—rushing it 13 times for just 41 yards.

“We’ve got to do a better job,” Reid told the media during a conference call the day after the game. “We need to get bodies on bodies is what we have to do. Just identify the direction in which we’re going. You always hear people talk about identifying who the Mike is and then kind of work to that person, so we’ve got to do a better job with that. Some of these plays we wouldn’t even run against this team if you had time to game plan for them. We’re just kind of throwing our base stuff out there, and so sometimes we ran into an overload, which we normally don’t do.

“When it really comes down to it you still have to get a body on body, secure that level one so there’s not penetration, and give the back at least a chance.”

\Earlier this week, assistant head coach Brad Childress also spoke about the rushing performance against the 49ers.

“Would have liked to see it more effective, but I think it was [Reid’s] idea that when it’s warm like this, we want to make sure we sync up the passing game,” Childress explained. “I think you’ll probably see more emphasis on run as we go here, but we’ll never step away from that pass. Got to be able to do it here if you’re going to do it in climate conditions as the season goes on.”

It makes sense considering the Chiefs finished the game against the 49ers with twice as many passing attempts (30) as rushing attempts (14).

It’ll be interesting to see if the running game gets going Saturday.

5. Young guys to watch

Outside of Mahomes and Kpassagnon, who are obvious young players to watch, there are a couple of other young guys who might mix in later in the game who have drawn praise for their performances thus far.

The first is rookie cornerback Ashton Lampkin (No. 6).

Lampkin was specifically mentioned by name by cornerbacks coach Al Harris, who was asked about any young players who have impressed him to this point.

“From the time he first got here until now, it is night and day,” Harris said of Lampkin. “The confidence is there; the movement is there. He’s still young and growing, but the ceiling is high, and he does everything you ask him to do.”

Offensively, the young player to watch is running back Kareem Hunt. He’s not a surprise pick here, and his steady climb to grabbing more first-team touches shouldn’t go unnoticed.

“He is a physical back that can do a lot of things, so hopefully this coming week, he gets a few more touches,” offensive coordinator Matt Nagy said of Hunt earlier this week.

Hunt finished his college career as Toledo’s all-time leading rusher with 4,945 yards and 44 touchdowns, and he has been a popular pick by many national media types as a potential rookie breakout performer this year.

The Chiefs moved up to select Hunt with the No. 86 overall pick in the third round of this year’s draft.

The Kansas City Chiefs take another step towards the regular season on Saturday night in the second week of preseason action.

The Chiefs broke training camp in St. Joseph on Wednesday after three weeks of grueling practices, but their work is far from over as they continue to prepare for the regular season in Saturday’s contest.

Offensively, quarterback Alex Smith and the rest of the starters will play the first half, Head Coach Andy Reid said on Wednesday. Rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes will play with the second team in the third quarter and Tyle Brendan Gallagher Jersey Womens r Bray will take over with the third team in the fourth quarter. 

Smith played just one series in Kansas City’ Men’s Adidas Montreal Canadiens 92 Jonathan Drouin Authentic Home Red NHL Hockey Jersey Cheap s preseason opener against San Francisco on Aug. 11 but took advantage of it, leading an eight-play touchdown drive. Smith completed four of six passes for 48 yards and chipped in 10 yards rushing in his limited work.

The f Jonathan Drouin Jersey irst team will look to build on that success on Saturday as they get an extended opportunity to be on the field. The Chiefs rushing attack, which combined for just 13 carries in the preseason opener, will likely be a point of emphasis.

After the starters turn in their helmets and retire to the sideline, Mahomes will make his case to be Kansas City’s second quarterback on the depth chart.

Mahomes was the Chiefs third quarterback in the preseason opener and played well, completing seven of nine passes for 49 yards and a touchdown. He began working with the second te Montreal Canadiens Ice Hockey Jersey am in practice this week and will get a chance to face some stiffer competition in the third quarter on Saturday. 

On the other side of the ball, the Bengals present a solid test for the Chiefs defense. Cincinnati has depth at quarterback with three-time Pro Bowler Andy Dalton and A.J. McCarron under center, and playmakers in wide receiver A.J. Green and tight end Tyler Eifert. Dalton, like Smith, played just one series in Cincinnati’s preseason opener against Tampa Bay and will likely see more action on Saturday along with the rest of the Bengals regulars.

The Chiefs last faced the Bengals on October 4,  NHL All Star 2015 in Cincinnati and lost, 36-21, despite kicker Cairo Santos’ franchise-record seven field goals. The loss was part of a slow start to the 2015 season, but since that game, Kansas City is 22-6 in the regular season and 10-3 on the road. The Chiefs 22 wins in that span are the second-most in the NFL behind New England’s 23.  

The trip to southern Ohio will be a homecoming for tight end Travis Kelce, who played collegiately at the University of Cincinnati from 2009-12. Rookie running back Kareem Hunt also has Ohio Max Pacioretty Jersey  roots, playing just up the road at the University of Toledo, where he’s the school’s all-time leading rusher. Hunt played at Paul Brown Stadium once while with the Rockets, rushing for 101 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries on Sept. 12, 2014 vs NHL 100 Classic Celebration . UC. 

Catch Kelce, Hunt and the rest of the Chiefs in action on Saturday night at 6 p.m. on KCTV5 as Kansas City continues to prepare for the regular season.
