25 Things We Learned Thursday From Media Ava Texans Color Rush Jersey ilability

Matt Nagy, Bob Sutton, Dave Toub, Kareem Hunt and Derrick Johnson spoke to the media Thursday

CHIEFS OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR MATT NAGY

Q: What did you see from Kareem Hunt that led you to believe that he was ready for what you were going to give him in his first NFL game?

NAGY: “To start off you see some resiliency. He starts off with that fumble and everybody wants to try to help him out as much as possible after that play. You kind of feel for him a little bit, first touch in the NFL after all of those carries in college, but he just showed that he can rebound from a little adversity. He stuck in there and he knew that we all had his back and he had our back and went forward. That was a good thing to see early on.”

Q: You made sure you got him the ball the v Alfred Blue Jersey ery next play. Did you have to go off of the script for that one or did you want to get that one done?

NAGY: “Coach has been in this for a long time, so he gets it. Coach made a great call with getting him the ball next and get the guy’s confidence back and that’s exactly what happened.”

Q: What did you see in him leading up to the game, you had some veteran options that you could’ve turned to, but what did you see in him that let you know that he’s ready for this kind of thing?

NAGY: “During camp nothing was really too big for him. He’s handled all of the assignments that we’ve given him and you get in practice, you get in training camp and if there’s a fumble here or there you get on him, but nothing is as real as it is on a Thursday night in the middle of the biggest game of the night. You don’t know how he’s going to react. In that situation it’s a win-win for all of us to just be able to give him the ball again, for him to feel comfortable with carrying that ball and just get his confidence back.”

Q: I know you had a chance to be around him in 2012 the year you were there, but what makes 91 (Fletcher Cox) such a special player?

NAGY: “He has a high motor and he’s smart, he’s strong, he’s powerful, there’s so many positives that go in to Fletcher. He has a great mindset and he understands the amount of games that go on, on that front line. He’s a dynamic football player and he’s extremely athletic. I remember when we were there he was always there doing backup snaps wanting to be the long snapper to help out if anything happened. He has a great personality and he has a high motor.”

Q: On the play that Tyreek identified as the one that he could exploit for a touchdown, how much trust is there between you and him and Alex (Smith) just to make that play work?

NAGY: “It was neat. It was during a little TV timeout and Coach had the play call and we gave it to the guys on the sideline and instantly without a thought there was, ‘Coach I want the double move’ and so coach goes with it, trusts his guys and to be able to have that happen and hit that play, those are the ones that you always remember.”

Q: When you go back and watch the tape and you see the plays he (Kareem Hunt) made better vs. what the O-Line was giving him, does anything stand out to you the second time watching through?

NAGY: “The one thing that you see with Kareem is that he’s going to get yards after contact. He’s really good at that. To see that come to fruition here in that first game is nice and he wants to build on that. Now with that said, when you’re breaking tackles and that first guy hits you have to protect that football, and after that first play he got a feel, he got in a groove and he was able to do that.”

CHIEFS DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR BOB SUTTON

Q: Already missing Steven Nelson, now Eric Berry. What’s your secondary look like, what are you left with back there?

SUTTON: “I think we’ve got a capable group. We’ve played a lot of guys so we’re fortunate to have Dan Sorensen and Eric Murray who in different groupings can help fill that void, it’s a big void obviously when you lose a guy like EB (Eric Berry) whose one of the real top flight players in the game. But unfortunately we’ve had to go through that before with him and other guys here and you just got to try to march on. We’d love to have our full complement of players every time, but this stuff happens in the National Football League.”

Q: (Daniel) Sorensen has obviously played a lot for you, but what tells you that Eric Murray is ready for whatever goal you might have for him?

SUTTON: “I think the way he’s progressed, he had a great camp. A great camp and preseason, played really well. I think he’s very confident in himself and the system. He made the transition from corner to safety a year ago and I give him a lot of credit because he attacked the position, demanded a lot out of himself. His practice habits are outstanding and I think that’s why he’s been able to make th Brian Cushing Jersey is jump that I think we’ll all see when he gets out there and plays. But he’s well prepared and that’s credit to him and the coaches that work with him. So I feel good about him.”

Q: What did you think about Terrance Mitchell in the first week?

SUTTON: “He did a good job. Obviously the penalties are something that he needs to work on. Most penalties are usually a result of a technique, something happened bad in your technique early in Men’s Nike Houston Texans Braxton Miller Elite Vapor Untouchable Color Rush Navy Blue Jersey  the down that got you in that position. So he knows that’s something he has to work on in practice. If he ends up grabbing or holding, I say it’s usually because of your feet or your eyes. So you’ve got to work on those and that’s how you have to improve that. The one thing about (Terrance) Mitchell is he is highly competitive and to his credit, he doesn’t back off. If he gets a penalty, he gets a penalty. He’s got to improve but it doesn’t shut him down, it doesn’t make him soft – he keeps going. And  Texans Color Rush Jersey that’s really the way you got to do it. You got to work to get rid of some of those.”

Q: Is his job made harder by people just avoiding Marcus Peters’ side at times?

SUTTON: “It might. You might get more tired because you don’t want to throw it on the other side. That would be it. Schematically I don’t think besides you don’t want to throw it to Marcus (Peters) as much, and throw it over there, you might get more work.”

Q: Do you think offenses scheme, do they move people away from Marcus (Peters)?

SUTTON: “You’d have to ask them but I’m sure that happens. Like everybody, the game is about matchups – you’re always trying to get some of those matchups like that. I’m sure people say hey these are the kind of routes we’re going to run on Marcus (Peters), these are the kind of routes we’re going to run on the other guys. And play like that.”

CHIEFS SPECIAL TEAMS COORDINATOR DAVE TOUB

Q: What do you see when you watch tape?

TOUB: “Eagles are excellent. They finished last year on Gosselin’s rankings as No. 1 last year. They were where we’re trying to get to – that’s where we want to be. They fly around. They’re very well coached. They’ve got eight guys who are all solid, solid special team’s players. Good in return game, good in their coverage – everything, they’re total.”

Q: You have history in Philadelphia, particularly for you that’s where you got started, and can you talk about what it means to you to play this team and do you still think back to how you got started?

TOUB: “I think about it a lot. Andy (Reid) hired me in 2001, when I was at Missouri. He hired me there to be a quality control, a special teams/quality control/defensive line. He kind of created the first position that was known back then. Now everybody has got a quality control guy or an assistant. So I felt fortunate to get on that staff. I got to work under John Harbaugh and then I was also working for Tommy Brasher, the defensive line c Braxton Miller Jersey oach. So I was getting taught by two of the best.”

Q: Did Doug (Pederson) try to convince you to come over when he went to Philly?

TOUB: “No. I think Andy (Reid), one thing he does is he protects his coaches. You might get another job somewhere but his guys are off limits. He’s made that clear to me last year when I interviewed.”

Q: De’Anthony (Thomas) ha Men’s Alfred Blue Houston Texans Nike Elite Alternate Battle Red Football Jersey d a couple of tough returns, is that a blocking thing?

TOUB: “Yeah it was. We were sloppy on special teams. I mean if we go back, we’ve coached them hard this week because we were so sloppy, you know with the fair catch, the bobbled catch that he had, missed blocks. We almost gave up two punt blocks. Really not ourselves. We were really sloppy so we’ve got to fix that up this week. Particularly this week because we’re going against such a good group.”

RB KAREEM HUNT

Q: Could you have ever dreamed that your regular season pro-debut would have played out like that?

HUNT: “Actually no, I couldn’t because I haven’t fumbled in so so long and honestly just to start off that way I was just like ‘What’s going on’, so I just had to get back to the basics and make sure I extra protected it and did that and we came out with a win.”

Q: Will you be able to stay grounded through all of this?

HUNT: “I’m just going to stay myself, nothing will change. I’m not going to make it bigger than it is. I’m just going to keep going out there and playing football. I love this game and it’s what I do.”

Q: Were you surprised that they went right back to you and what did it mean to you that they had the confidence to go right back to you?

HUNT: “Honestly I was kind of surprised. Coach Andy Reid said ‘Get ready because we’re going right back to you. We’re giving you the ball’. I was just like ‘Wow these guys really believe in me’ because if I was a coach I don’t know how I would feel about that. I was just like ‘Okay, I have to go out there and make something happen and forget about that play’.”

Q: Somebody clocked you as running faster than Tyreek (Hill) on one of the plays. Has he approached you about that?

HUNT: “Yeah, but he’s Tyreek Hill. I know I’m not faster than him. He was coasting on his (touchdown) and I was actually running.”

Q: Coach Nagy talked about your ability to take a hit and continue to go without being tackled and break those tackles. Do you feel like that’s a big part of what you do as a running back or a big part of what makes you successful?

HUNT: “I think so, just my contact balance I’d have to say and just keeping the play alive and not really going down on first contact. I just keep running my feet and try to get every yard possible.”

Q: How has your life changed, maybe in small ways maybe since week one, it’s a whole different world for you isn’t it?

HUNT: “It’s a lot of new people around. But I keep my circle tight, still talk to the same people and just keep going about my day. I just do what I do.”

Q: You opened the season on the road, you have this home opener coming up. What have you heard about playing in front of the crowd at Arrowhead and how much are you looking forward to that?

HUNT: “I’m definitely looking forward to it. I’ve been looking forward to it since I got here. Everyone’s been telling me about how we have the best crowd, the best fans and it’s the loudest stadium. I can’t wait to get out there and have people cheering on our side and it’s not [going to be] quiet when we do something good.”

LB DERRICK JOHNSON

Q: How did the first game feel health-wise?

JOHNSON: “I felt good in the first game. I felt myself getting better as the game went on. It is more about reps with me. My body is adjusting quickly. It has always been that way. I am very fortunate and just want to get better from here.”

Q: You always talk about training your eyes, what is the time period where you think you have your vision back?

JOHNSON: “Well, you want it earlier than later. But, usually midseason. You definitely don’t want to peak too early but you want to play at a high level always. Usually midseason, training your eyes with your feet, it helps you make more plays and anticipate better. We started fast as a defense and hopefully I can become more of an impact player for this defense as we go along.”

Q: What did you think the difference was from the first half to the second hal Men’s Brian Cushing Houston Texans Nike Elite Navy Blue Team Color Football Jersey f?

JOHNSON: “Well, I think we still did the same things, I just think we did them a little bit better. We stayed with our game plan. Coach Sutton always says, ‘Don’t blink.’ It is just a simple term saying don’t get discouraged when things don’t go your way. Just trust the process. We did a really good job of trusting the process throughout the game and we made some moment in that game that created momentum for us. As far as the fourth down stops, that is big.”

Q: Is it frustrating to keep losing star players and not get all on the field at once?

JOHNSON: “It is frustrating at times when you can’t get everyone together, all your core players that have been here for a while. But it is the NFL, you are never surprised. Things happen. I know that, coming off of two Achilles injuries. It’s one of those things where it is next guy up. It is huge shoes to fill with Eric Berry gone, but hopefully a couple guys can step in and help.”

Q: Do you see some of your offense in the Eagles?

JOHNSON: “A little bit. Even though they (Reid and Pederson) are under the same umbrella, they have their own identities. Pederson has done a great job with that young quarterback, Wentz. They have an explosive offense. Of course you can’t just pull up the Chiefs playbook and say, ‘Hey, here is Pederson.’ You can’t do that. There are some similarities because he was under him. But, at the same time, it is not as simple as you think.” 

Q: What is it like the first few days after the Achilles surgery? What is Eric Berry going through?

JOHNSON: “I’ll tell you what, we will see Eric Berry pretty soon. Nothing is going on much after the surgery. The first two months is just letting the Achilles heal, letting it mend back together. It is just kind of boring. You just have to let it heal. It is a patience deal early on. I know he will struggle with that, because he wants to get going. But after a couple months, he can start training.”

Chiefs Understand Challenge They Face in the Eag Texans Color Rush Jersey les’ Fletcher Cox

The Chiefs’ staff is familiar with the standout defensive lineman

Two of the biggest plays in the Philadelphia Eagles’ Week 1 victory over the Washington Redskins came at the hands of two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox.

While the final box score will show just a single tackle for the 6-feet-4, 310-pound monster, the rest of his stat line tells more of the story. He had a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery, which was part of a game-sealing scoop-and-score late in the fourth quarter.

“They move [Cox] all around, but that front is good,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid explained Wednesday afternoon. “That’s really a big strength of their defense is the front four and those linebackers. They put a lot of pressure on the quarterback and they’ve done it now for a couple years.

“I think they feel comfort in the things they do  Braxton Miller Jersey up front, and it s Men’s Brian Cushing Houston Texans Nike Elite Navy Blue Team Color Football Jersey tarts with 91 [Cox]. He’s a good football player.”

With the Eagles holding a 22-17 lead with a little less than two minutes remaining in the game, standout edge rusher Brandon Graham, who is another member of that “speed” package often coming off the left side of the Eagles’ defensive front, was able to get his hands on Redskins’ quarterback Kirk Cousins and knock the ball out, which Cox picked up and ran back 20 yards for the touchdown.

Earlier in the game, Cox was able to beat the right tackle around the edge and get to Cousins for a strip-sack of his own. It was one of the four turnovers forced by the Eagles’ defense.

“He has a high motor, and he’s smart, strong, and powerful,” Chiefs’ offensive coordinator Matt Nagy, who along with Reid and several others now with the Chiefs, was on the Eagles’ staff when Cox was selected in the first round (No. 12 overall) out of Mississippi State in 2012, explained. “There are so many positives that go into [Cox]. He has a great mindset and  Alfred Blue Jersey he understands the amount of games that go on in that front line.”

Nagy also remembered Cox always trying to help in any way that he could.

“I remember he was always doing back-up snaps, wanting to be the long snapper if a Men’s Alfred Blue Houston Texans Nike Elite Alternate Battle Red Football Jersey nything happened,” Nagy added. “He really has a personality.”

A great personality for a defensive lineman out of Mississippi State may sound familiar. It’s the same school the Chiefs took Chris Jones from two years ago, and he’s turned out to be pretty good, too.

In fact, Chiefs’ general manager Brett Veach, who was the Southeast area scout for the Eagles when Cox was selected, was the  Men’s Nike Houston Texans Braxton Miller Elite Vapor Untouchable Color Rush Navy Blue Jersey first scout to bring Cox’s name to the table.

While the familiarity of him won’t make the process of blocking him any easier, those tasked with trying to slow him down are aware of what they’re up against.

“I think it’s going to be a challenge,” Chiefs’ right guard Lauren Brian Cushing Jersey t Duvernay-Tardif explained of dealing with Cox. “But I think it’s a great opportunity to show people what you’re all about as a player. It’s not going to be easy, everybody is getting paid to make plays in the league, but going against guys like that, it’s when you can separate yourself.”

Duvernay-Tardif said he hopes the Chiefs’ offense, which currently leads the NFL with 537 total yards, can follow a similar path as what they were able to do last week against the New England Patriots.

“I think we did a lot of great things,” he explained. “Especially getting the run-game going early. When you’re able to get the defense to fear your run game, it opens up a ton of stuff—whether it’s play action, or the pass game, I think that’s what we were able to do in the second half with the two long passes for touchdowns.”

The Chiefs—led by rookie Kareem Hunt—averaged 5.6 yards per carry in the first half, which as Duvernay-Tardif explained, opened up things for Smith in the second half.

Smith finished 28 of 35 for 368 yards and four touchdowns, which earned him the AFC’s “Offensive Player of the Week” award on Wedn Texans Color Rush Jersey esday. But as Smith noted, he’s not drinking the Kool-Aid.

While every week is a challenge in the NFL, the Chiefs know that matching what they did offensively against the Patriots is much easier said than done, particularly facing a guy like Cox and the rest of that Eagles’ front, but they’re confident in their chances.

“I totally trust that Alex [Smith] will be able to sit in the pocket and make the throw he needs to make in order for us to score points and win the game,” Duvernay-Tardif said.

Members of Guy Lafleur Jersey  Chiefs Kingdom Spending Honeymoon at Arrowhead on Sunday

There’s no place like Arrowhead

Arrowhead, the place known for its fans and noise, comes back to life Sunday for the Kansas City Chiefs home opener against the Eagles.

And there’s nothing like the first Red Friday to st Guy Lafleur Jersey art building up the energy for the weekend.

“It’s hard not to see  Jacob De La Rose Jersey the support that we get from Kansas City,” Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson said. “Banners up, lights up, everything painted red– it’s just a reminder of what this town is all about.

“It just lets you know how much support the fans give us win or lose, and it just gives us more confidence and excitement to go out and play for them.”

Coach Andy Reid said Red Friday is one of the things he’s really proud of in the organization.

“I’m proud that our players get out into the community and proud that the organization allows the players to do that, and encourages that.”

The players are so into Red Friday in fact, that Chiefs quarterbac Montreal Canadiens Custom Jersey k Alex Smith’s wife couldn’t believe their son’s school would schedule pajama day on Friday.

“My wife was like, ‘Well that doesn’t make sense. It’s Red Friday,’” Smith told Mitch Holthus on the Chiefs Kingdom Radio Show. “It’s just so ingrained that this is what this city is about, this whole community, the kingdom. It was just so funny to me, without skipping a beat, ‘It’s Red Friday.’”

And that energy will only increase on Sunday.

“Arrowhead—there’s nothing like Arrowhead,” Johnson said. “Especially on a Sunday at 12 o’clock.”

So, don’t be shocked that there’s a couple honeymooning there.

Elise Gouldsmith and Jordan Klebba are getting married Saturday in Lee Summit, and for their honeymoon, are att Henri Richard Jersey ending the home opener the next day.

“I told Jordan, ‘Let’s just go to the game. Let’s just go,’” Gouldsmith said.

What solidified their compatib CCM Vintage 1973 Montreal Canadiens Henri Richard Home Red Throwback NHL Jersey ility? Both families are die-hard Chiefs fans.

They even considered having the wedding at Arrowhead.

Klebba is in firefighting training, with limited days off, and suggested the game as their honeymoon as a joke, but Gouldsmith was instantly on board.

“I told Jordan [Klebba] I have a million and one things to do this wedding Montreal Canadiens Merchandise  week, and what am I doing? I am working on posters for the game,” Gouldsmith l CCM Vintage 1973 Montreal Canadiens Guy Lafleur Home Red Throwback NHL Jersey aughed.

In addition to the signs, Gouldsmith will be rocking her veil with her Chiefs’ gear on Sunday.

Arrowhead is a character in itself.

“It’s almost as close to a college environment as you’re going to find in the National Football League,” Reid said. “Where you have the tailgates and there are people lined up trying to get here early morning on noon games.”

Reid referred to one fan in particular who arrives around 4:30 in the morning.

“The gates are closed, and he has his barbeque out and he’s handing hotdogs out to people,” Reid said. “And I’m going this is unbelievable. It’s a phenomenal deal.”

For some, it’ll be their first regular season game at Arrowhead— and they’ve been looking forward to it since they got here. 

“Everybody’s been telling me how we got the best crowd, the best fans and the loudest stadium,” Chiefs rookie Kareem Hunt said. “I can’t wait to get out there and have people cheering on our side.”

And to that, Chiefs fans say, “I do.”

Chiefs STs Coach Dave Toub: “We Coached Them Hard This Week Guy Lafleur Jersey “

A further look into Dave Toub’s coaching history

The Kansas City Chiefs face another challenge this weekend as they prepare to take on the Philadelphia Eagles.

Coming off of last week’s game against the New England Patriots, special teams coordinator Dave Toub didn’t shy awa Henri Richard Jersey y from pushing his unit to improve.

“We were sloppy on special teams,” Toub said. “We’ve coached them hard this week because we were so sloppy.”

Toub said special teams wasn’t themselves last week, referencing De’Anthony’s bobbled catch and missed blocks.

“We were really sloppy so we’ve got to fix that up this week,” Toub reiterated. “Particularly this week because we’re going against such a good group.”

The Eagles’ special teams was pretty good last week.

Redskins’ punt returner Jamison Crowder averaged just 1.5 yards per return, and the two kick returners—Chris Thompson and Bashaud Breeland—both averaged less than 20 yards per kick return.

And for Toub, this CCM Vintage 1973 Montreal Canadiens Henri Richard Home Red Throwback NHL Jersey  game means something a little more.

Toub earned his first professional football coaching gig in 2001 with the Eagles.

And Andy Reid created it just for him.

The history of Reid and Toub starts back in an off-campus diner in 1987 at the University of Texas- El Paso.

After they spent two successful seasons together at UTEP, Reid went to the University of Missouri as the offensive line coach, and six months later, Toub followed.

In 1992, Reid left Columbia for Green Bay. After six years with the Packers, Reid headed to Philadelphia as the Eagles head coach.

And in 2001, Toub’s phone rang.

“He [Reid] hired me there to be a quality control special teams/quality control D-line coach,” Toub said. “He kind of created the first position Guy Lafleur Jersey  of that was known back then.”

Now, everyone has either a quality Jacob De La Rose Jersey  control coach or assistant.

“I felt fortunate to get on that staff,” Toub said. “I got to work under John Harbaugh and then I was also working for Tommy Brasher,  Montreal Canadiens Merchandise the D-line coach, so I was getting taught by two of the best.”

Toub remained with the Eagles until 2003, when he joined the Chicago Bears as the special teams coordinator. Durin CCM Vintage 1973 Montreal Canadiens Guy Lafleur Home Red Throwback NHL Jersey g his tim Montreal Canadiens Custom Jersey e in Chicago, Toub’s special teams unit was ranked amongst the best in the league during his eight years there.

And in 2013, Toub was reunited with Reid when he accepted a position as the special teams coordinator in Kansas City, where he’s led this special teams to much success.

But on Sunday, Toub will face the team where it all started when the Chiefs take on the Eagles.

Chiefs  Paul Molitor Jersey vs. Eagles: Five Things to Watch

Here are a few storylines to follow as the Chiefs host the Eagles Sunday afternoon

It has to be one of the most anticipated home openers for the Kansas City Chiefs in recent memory, and not just because it’s a team with lofty expectations, but because of how they dominated the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots a week ago on national television.

The Chiefs won in decisive fashion, 42-27.

This Sunday is Chiefs Kingdom’s chance to let this team know how they feel about them, and while the coaches and players understand that success doesn’t carry over from week to week, the hype from the fans definitely does.

And it’s at an all-time high right now.

The Chiefs welcome a Philadelphia Eagles team that’s feeling pretty good about themselves as well, coming off a big divisional win last Sunday over the Washington Redskins, 30-17.

The Eagles are led by second-year head coach Doug Pederson, whose name should be familiar to Chiefs fans as he spent three years in Kansas City as Andy Reid’s offensive coordinator (2013-15).

Reid, who spent 14 years as head coach of the Eagles prior to joining the Chiefs before the 2013 season, currently has five former assistants who are head coaches around the league.

Actually, Reid gave Pederson, who played quarterback for him and the Eagles in 1999, his first shot in the NFL as a coach in 2011. Pederson was coaching at the high school level in Louisiana at the time.

“The guys who worked with him knew what he was capable of doing,” Reid said earlier this week of Pederson. “So, what seemed like a fast-paced progression for people outside of here, seemed kind of natural for the people who were here (around him).

“I have a lot of respect for [Pederson], and I think he’s doing a nice job there.”

This will be the 12th game Reid has played against one of his former assistants, and he’s faired pretty well in those games—accumulating an 8-3 record.

Outside of Reid, Pederson, and a handful of assistants and staff members on both sides who have worked together in both Philadelphia and Kansas City, the game will also be a reunion for defensive tackle Bennie Logan, who signed with the Chiefs this offseason after spending the first four years of his career with the Eagles.

Logan is a guy to watch on Sunday as he helped the Chiefs’ defense shut down the Patriots’ run game last week. The Patriots averaged just 3.5 yards per carry.

Here are five other things to watch during Chiefs-Eagles on Sunday:

1. How do the Chiefs try and make up for the loss of Eric Berry?

One of the biggest storylines to come out of the Chiefs’ big win over the Patriots was the season-ending loss of All-Pro safety Eric Berry, who suffered a ruptured Achilles late in the game.

It was a tough loss in an otherwise great night for the Chiefs.

Earlier this week, Berry went to see the same renowned doctor who took care of Derrick Johnson’s two Achilles injuries, and before surgery, Berry vowed to come back better than ever in a social media post.

And while nobody is going to replace what Berry brings to the table, the Chiefs are confident in the depth they have at the position.

“I think we’ve got a capable group,” Chiefs’ defensive coordinator Bob Sutton explained. “We’ve played a lot of guys, so we’re fortunate to have Dan Sorensen and Eric Murray, who in different groupings can help fill that void. It’s a big void, obviously, when you lose a guy like EB (Eric Berry), who is one of the real top-flight players in the game. But unfortunately, we’ve had to go through that before with him and other guys here and you just try to march on.”

Sorensen signed a contract extension this offseason and has spent time both as a deep safety, and also down inside the box as the “dime” linebacker. It’ll be interesting to see how much Sorensen’s role is changed by this situation. He had been the only player on the Chiefs’ roster to learn that in-the-box-safety role.

For Murray, who had been drawing rave reviews all offseason heading into his second year after playing just 64 total defensive snaps as a rookie, the time to step up is now.

“I think he’s very confident in himself and the system,” Sutton said of Murray. “He made the transition from (college) cornerback to safety a year ago, and I give him a lot of credit because he attacked the position, demanded a lot out of himself. His practice habits are outstanding and I think that’s why he’s been able to make this jump that I think we’ll all see when he gets out there and plays.

“But he’s well prepared and that’s credit to him Marco Estrada Jersey  and the coaches that work with him. I feel good about him.”

Earlier this week, the Chiefs also re-signed safety Steven Terrell, who spent all of training camp with the team and was released during the final cut-down to 53 players.

2. Will the Chiefs’ offense continue their hot ways?

The Chiefs lead the NFL after one week by averaging 537 yards of total offense per game.

Now, to believe that pace can continue is a stretch, and not just a little one, that’s a big one.

If the Chiefs kept up that pace, they’d not only break the NFL record, which was set by the St. Louis Rams and the “Greatest Show on Turf” in 2000 with 7,075 total yards, but they’d shatter the record. The Chiefs are on pace for 8,592 total yards.

The extrapolation of numbers after one week is fun, even if it’s meaningless.

To go a step further, quarterback Alex Smith—the reigning AFC “Offensive Player of the Week”—is on pace for 64 touchdown passes after completing 28 of 35 for 368 yards and four touchdowns last week against the Patriots. That’s a soli Men’s Toronto Blue Jays 19 Paul Molitor Authentic Mitchell and Ness Home White Throwback Jersey d pace.

“We’ve added stuff, which we do every year,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid explained of Smith’s performance and the offenses explosion in Week 1. “The more [Smith] has been in it, the more input he’s had. We feel very comfortable with his suggestions on things. I think that’s all part of the relationship and having trust in each other.

“There are certain things that he likes and we know he likes and we make sure that they are in there for him.”

For Smith, the performance in Week 1 was great, but it doesn’t mean anything moving forward.

“If you play long enough, I have certainly seen teams where they play really good and feel so good about themselves, then they walk into the next week and get smacked in the mouth,” Smith explained.

Sounds like a guy who has been around for a while.

3. How will the Chiefs handle to the Eagles’ defensive front?

Defensively, the Eagles are led by their defensive front, particularly their two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox. He was a part of two of the biggest plays for the Eagles’ defense last week during their 30-17 victory over the Washington Redskins.

Cox finished with a sack, forced fumble, fumble recovery and touchdown, which came with less than two minutes remaining in the game and as the Redskins were attempting a game-winning drive.

Cox, who picked up the ball after Eagles’ standout edge rusher Brandon Graham knocked it out of the hands of Redskins’ quarterback Kirk Cousins, had other plans.  He took it back 20 yards for the score.

“He has a high motor and he’s smart, strong, and powerful,” Chiefs’ offensive coordinator Matt Nagy, who was with the Eagles in 2012 when Cox was selected in the first round, explained. “There are so many positives that go in to Fletcher. He has a great mindset and he understands the amount of games that take place on the line.

“I remember when we were there he was always doing backup snaps wanting to be the long snapper to help out if anything happened. He has a great personality.”

The Eagles, which forced four turnovers on the day, also held the Redskins to just 3 of 11 (27 percent) on third down.

One of the guys tasked with slowing Cox and company down is right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, who will often find himself lined up across from Cox on Sunday.

“I think it’s going to be a challenge,” Duvernay-Tardif explained of dealing with Cox. “But I think it’s a great opportunity to show people what you’re all about as a player. It’s not going to be easy, everybody is getting paid to make plays in the league, but going against guys like that, it’s when you can separate yourself.”

4. The Chiefs’ special team’s units were challenged this week. How do they respond?

The Chiefs have been one of the league’s best special team’s units over the past several years, but according to the guy leading them—Dave Toub—they weren’t very good last week against the Patriots.

“We were sloppy,” Toub explained. “We’ve coached them hard this week because we were so sloppy, you know with the fair catch, the bobbled catch, missed blocks. We almost Women’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey  gave up two punt blocks. Really not ourselves.”

The Chiefs luckily didn’t need the usual standout special teams’ performance they get from that group against the Patriots, but that won’t always be the case.

And the task doesn’t get any easier this week.

“They are excellent,” Toub said of the Eagles’ special teams’ units. “They finished No. 1 last year on Rick Gosselin’s rankings. They were where we’re trying to get to – that’s where we want to be. They fly around. They’re very well-coached. They’ve got eight guys who are all solid, solid special team’s players. Good in return game, good in their coverage – everything.”

The Eagles held Redskins’ speedy punt returner Jamison Crowder to two returns for three yards, and both of their kick returners averaged less than 20 yards per return against the Eagles’ coverage units.

Although one thing to keep in mind is the Eagles will be using a new kicker this week as their normal guy—Caleb Sturgis—is out with a core muscle injury.

Consequently, the Eagles signed undraft Paul Molitor Jersey ed rookie Jake Elliott off the Bengals’ practice squad earlier this week. This will be Elliott’s first NFL action.

5. The Arrowhead advantage is back

The Chiefs have won 12 of their last 14 games at Arrowhead Stadium—winning by an average score of 28 to 14.

And after last week’s big win over the Patriots, plus the fact that it’s the home opener with all kinds of thin Kevin Pillar Jersey gs happening around the game (like a pregame B2 bomber flyover-weather permitting, among plenty of other stuff), the atmosphere is going to be on another level. 

“There’s nothing like Arrowhead,” veteran linebacker Derrick Johnson explained. “Especially on a Sunday at 12 o’clock. It’s going to be rocking, and I can’t wait. Hopefully I can make one of those first plays  Toronto Blue Jays and see how loud the crowd gets, but it’s going to be electric.

“It’s a feeling you can tell people about, but you’ve got to be on the field at that time to experien Marcus Stroman Jersey ce that.”

It’s simple: Arrowhead is the place to be on Sunday. 

The Brothers Kelce: Family a Paul Molitor Jersey nd Football Meet on Sunday

Travis Kelce will face his brother, Jason, for the first time on Sunday afternoon

“Football is family.”

It’s been a popular phrase around the league the past several years, and it holds weight, as players spend nearly every waking moment together over the course of the season.

Though while the phrase rings true metaphorically, it takes on a literal meaning this Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Philadelphia Eagles at Arrowhead Stadium.

The game marks the fir Marcus Stroman Jersey st time that Chiefs’ tight end Travis Kelce will play against his brother, Jason, the Eagles’ starting center.

“It’s going to be a little different,” Travis said. “The good thing is I don’t have to go up against him directly. While I’m sitting on the bench, I’ll get to see him go to work, and when he’s sitting on the bench, he’ll get to see me go to work.”

Separated by just two years, the Kelce brothers grew up playing football together, from playing catch in the backyard all the way to th Youth Majestic Flexbase Authentic 25 Marco Estrada Toronto Blue Jays Home White Baseball Jersey e University of Cincinnati. In fact, it was with the Bearcats that the two last played in the same game.

“That was back when I was a quarterback and h Marco Estrada Jersey e was a right guard,” Travis joked. “Things have changed just a little bit.”

Though regardless of where they lined up on the field, the trust between the two only grew over the years.

“I’ve always had a maximum amount of trust in his ability,” Travis said. “I don’t kno Women’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey w what it is, maybe it’s just me being biased, but any block that there is, I know that he can make it – and it goes both ways. I know that he feels that if there’s a play to be made, I can make it. I guess that confidence just grew as we went against each other in the house and in the backyard for so many years. I understood the game completely differently just by getting in his mind and how he thinks schematically. It’s definitely helped me grow.”

That bond only strengthened as time went on.

After graduating from Cincinnati, Jason was drafted by the Eagles – and current Chiefs’ Head Coach Andy Reid – in the sixth round of the 2011 Draft. His experience in the league proved helpful for Travis, who broke into the league a few years later.

“I feel like he’s ma Kevin Pillar Jersey de me better by just doing his thing,” Travis said. “I followed him to Cincinnati and I followed him to the NFL, so I’m kind of tracing his footsteps. By him just being a professional, it’s built my confidence to say, ‘Hey, if he can do it, I can do it.’ Men’s Toronto Blue Jays 19 Paul Molitor Authentic Mitchell and Ness Home White Throwback Jersey  We’re built from the same cloth.”

Travis recalled some of Jason’s most pertinent advice after the Chiefs drafted him in 2013.

“He said not to mess around with Big Red,” Travis said, referring to Reid. “He said if there’s one guy not to screw around with, it’s Coach Reid. He’s going to hold you accountable in all facets of  Toronto Blue Jays the game, so just make sure that you’re coming to work and doing your job.”

All pleasantries aside, the brothers – always competing – both want to come out on top on Sunday.

“It’s definitely a friendly back and forth, that’s for sure,” Jason said. “He’s a very humble, very reserved guy. He doesn’t talk any trash whatsoever, as you’ve seen.”

Jason was only being a little sarcastic.

“I want to beat my brother, so I can’t give him any intel,” Travis said. “If he calls and asks how I’m doing, I’m going to say I’m feeling under the weather and probably won’t play.”  

On hand to witness the duo’s first matchup will be their parents, along with a number of other family members, who all suddenly find themselves in a difficult position.

“It’s in Kansas City, so I imagine he’s going to win out in colors this year,” Jason said. “I think my mom might have a special-made jersey that has both of us on it. We have so many other family members coming to the game, and I’m guessing since this one is in KC, he’s going to get the benefit of the doubt on apparel.”

Allegiances aside, the game will be special for the Kelce’s parents.

“I appreciate the fact of seeing my parents and how happy they are telling everyone about us,” Travis said. “That’s where it really matters.”

“We can say that our mother and father have two guys in the NFL.”
