Of all the things the Kansas City Chiefs wanted to accomplish during their three-week getaway to training camp at Missouri Western, returning home with everyone healthy probably topped the list. Not only did they accomplish that, they actually improved their roster depth. WRs Gehrig Dieter (back) and Davon Grayson, DE Michael Hunter (groin) and TE John Lovett (shoulder) will not play at Pittsburgh. DE Frank Clark and WR Sammy Watkins returned to practice Thursday after illnesses.

“We’re together here so much. We’re here, and that’s part of it,” head coach Andy Reid said. “A lot of teams don’t do this anymore. The fact that you’re meeting together, you’re eating together and you’re working hard together — it develops a certain camaraderie there that I appreciate. You find out a lot about people, each team member. You can’t hide a lot when you’re doing that. That helps bond you as a team.”

Chiefs DL Breeland Speaks thriving at his natural position | Chiefs Wire

Under Bob Sutton’s 3-4 defense, Speaks was a square peg forced into a round hole. He played outside linebacker, and it was fairly clear that the responsibilities of that position didn’t match up entirely with his natural abilities. As the Chiefs’ top draft choice in 2018, he wasn’t being set up for success. It didn’t allow him to do what he was best at, which was playing with his hand in the dirt as a defensive lineman a 4-3 scheme. Saturday he got back to his roots, playing defensive end as a member of the Chiefs for the first time. He even notched a sack in his debut.

Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes and his (in)evitable regression | Arrowhead Addict

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes had one of the best seasons in 2018 for any quarterback, ever. Given that his season was such a historical outlier, he must be due for regression, right? That seems to be the cycle with quarterbacks: that a great year usually precedes a season of regression. With Mahomes, however, that may not be the case. While most of the work falls on the shoulders of Mahomes, Reid and the electrifying young gunslinger will be able to prove to doubters why he should not fall into the stigma of a ‘sophomore slump. It is almost impossible to draw comparisons to Mahomes as a player and any idea of regression simply because the league has quite literally never seen a player with his skill set and unique play style. Simply put, if history truly does repeat itself, Mahomes will not show signs of regression or experience a slump throughout the 2019 campaign. The only reason for a potential drop in numbers is the defense and its potential, leading to lesser-scoring games.

MMQB got one thing right today:

IN CLOSING: Just a very quick reminder since we are getting knee-deep into that season: There isn’t one person on the face of the earth who want to hear anything you have to say about your fantasy football draft, fantasy football league or fantasy football team. Not one.

“Returning home with everyone healthy,” then they list a few injuries and neglect to mention Reaser.

I’m sure Mahomes will play the whole first half, just like he played the entire 1st Quarter last week.

Exactly – whatever Andy says now, subtract one full quarter. And none of that bothers me – it’ll be a long season, playing into February and whatnot. Rest while you can, Patrick.

He’ll get 2 series instead of one, pretty much

This is my guess as well. Hopefully the 1st string defense gets more than 4 snaps though.

Not buying into the Speaks hype yet. I’m excited to watch the offense, but I know what to expect from them. I’m actually more excited to watch the Chiefs defense because were playing starters this week for a half, and I wonder how players are going to fit in Spags scheme. In reality we will be playing a vanilla defense, so we can only learn so much this week.

Remember in spags’ defense A lateral road grader is important

Correction, we’re playing a vanilla defense if we perform poorly.
