Rookie expectations for Juan Thornhill | KC Kingdom

The Chiefs have a lot of question marks at the other safety spot. Eric Berry is gone, Eric Murray is gone, but there’s still Daniel SorensenArmani Watts, and Jordan Lucas to work with. The depth at corner is bleak as well, which could be why Thornhill sees time at both positions throughout the course of his rookie year.

The guy is a good tackler (98 tackles in 2018!), which is rare for defensive backs in the league these days, and that could make him an instant starter. Whether he’s a safety or a corner on day one, the Chiefs found themselves a versatile player who will be able to contribute no matter where he is on the field.

Jody Fortson interview: Chiefs tight end discusses journey to NFL | Arrowhead Addict

The entire draft process was pretty nerve-wracking to be honest with you. Every kid wants to get drafted and hear Roger Goodell say their name. I missed the first five games of my senior year due to a hamstring injury, so I already knew that I was in the hole or climbing uphill in terms of what I can do and what’s on paper. I’m so grateful for the Chiefs taking a chance on me given that information. So I was watching the draft and seeing these names go by and that was hard. But everybody whose name was called are good players and I look forward to playing against them.

2019 NFL GM Offseason Report Cards | Bleacher Report

Kansas City Chiefs: Brett Veach | GRADE: C-
For a team that made the AFC Championship Game last campaign, the Kansas City Chiefs have gone through a ton of change this offseason—especially on defense.

They took a buzzsaw to one of the league’s worst defenses in 2018. There’s a new defensive coordinator in Steve Spagnuolo. A new scheme. A new edge-rusher in Frank Clark. And new defensive backs in veteran safety Tyrann Mathieu and rookie Juan Thornhill.

However, they had more than a few losses. They traded edge-rusher Dee Ford to San Francisco. Longtime stalwarts Justin Houston and Eric Berry are gone after being released. Cornerback Steven Nelson left in free agency.

And to say that the future of wide receiver Tyreek Hill in Kansas City is uncertain is putting it mildly. With Hill 
currently under investigation for alleged child abuse and likely unavailable for much of the season (at least), the Chiefs used their first draft pick on speedy wideout Mecole Hardman, but thanks to their trade with Seattle for Clark, that selection didn’t come until Round 2.

The defense treaded water. The offense is worse. And Kansas City GM Brett Veach is probably burning through Advil and Rolaids at a pretty good clip.

The police showed the quarterbacks a range of tactics and tools used to do their jobs, including bulletproof vests, sniper rifles and a robot able to dismantle bombs. All three also got to drive police cruisers around a track; later, they took turns controlling the bomb squad’s robot.

“It was almost like when you have those little cars as a kid and you’re trying to drive them around the driveway, but it’s a whole different level with having the camera and having to work a million buttons on the little pad that they had,” Mahomes said of controlling the robot. “So I just used the three that they showed me.”

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes headlines PFF list of top 25 NFL players under 25 | Chiefs Wire

Pro Football Focus’ annual list of the top 25 NFL players under 25has been released. The 2019 edition of the list features Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes as one of the top players in the NFL under the age of 25. Here is what they had to say about Mahomes:

“The now third-year quarterback is coming off a simply sensational 2018 season that rightfully ended with MVP honors. Mahomes’ overall grade of 92.9 is currently tied with 2013 Peyton Manning for the ninth-best grade of the PFF era (2006 – present), and his 134.2 passer rating from a clean pocket is the highest single-season mark of the PFF era among signal-callers with at least 500 dropbacks. Long may it continue.”

I like the browns and NFL using the “ok” sign. I think it’s ridiculous that people let fringe crazies hijack symbols and things we’ve been using forever. 👌 isn’t racist. It’s how my 3 year old shows people his age.

Please keep Mahomes’ visits with law enforcement to a minimum. We don’t need them mistaking him for an everyday black man and end up catching a bullet.

I thought Hill has cleared any charges again for a second time already? Why exactly should anyone be holding your breath? Why hasn’t he been allowed to rejoin team activities? How much English Oak wood can a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Good roundup Sporting! This offseason needs to hurry up and get over.

YAS! Im over it, I wanna see some football

I’m still pissed the AAF collapsed. I got my tickets refunded, but not the fees or the parking pass, so I am sending them warning letters and might end up taking them to small claims court. I ain’t playing.

That is so shitty, Starry. Were the fees & the pass a pretty good chunk of change?

I still don’t get how the league didnt vet the first investor more carefully….which left them susceptible to Dumdum’s last minute theatrics. I mean, Dude #1 (too lazy to Google him right now) is being indicted, right? On unrelated charges?

Something should’ve tipped SOMEone off, I guess

Anthony Stratton

I don’t understand how a league with better ratings than the NBA, paying their players peanuts in comparison, couldn’t sustain a 10 game season…

01lowbird

Yup…

Not at all, its $40, but its MY fucking $40. They keep saying I have to get that refunded from another entity. I keep saying not my fucking problem.

Nope, gimme my money or errbody getting sued.

I’m pessimistic by default, but even I don’t think the Defense is treading water and the Offense is worse. Defense has improved overall, Offense is treading water.

And yes, it made me nervous watching Patrick handle rifles in a crowd. An accidental bullet to the foot or leg would ruin the entire season. It does happen from time to time. Someone thought it wasn’t loaded, someone bumps a trigger.

Anthony Stratton

I was more concerned for those around him…you’d think he’d be used to carrying a huge rifle around by now…

Oh yeah, he’s packing alright

Giggity.

The Taeks article was yesterday. That’s where that second paragraph belongs. Those officers are professionals demonstrating the tools of their trade, not a bunch of idiot wanna-be-thugs in a club with unholstered pistols stuck in their waistbands.

Chiefs favored to win the SB in may….craziness!

Read where the Offense is ranked 7th best now. And of course the Defense was gutted and won’t be any good. But they are still favored to win the Super Bowl. Makes a lot of sense. lol

I need to ask Clay Wendler if he’ll join us for game predictions…I’m about those clicks.

Tarkus

With Mahomes at QB instead of Alex, he’ll probably pick the Chiefs to win every game now.

Anthony Stratton

Yeah, I can tell you that is indeed the case.

Guess I’m going to have to turn heel…

Chiefs’ odds are +800 of winning the 2020 Super Bowl.

Alright fanatics, would someone please help explain this?

Do you bet $800 to win a dollar?

ArrowheadRed

I think it means you bet $1, you get 80 cents?

If you bet 100 you win 800 or something like that

Therefore if it was -800 you would need to bet 800 to win 100
