Chiefs Win! Break Out The Practice Lombardi Trophy!

 171 replies

The Kansas City Chiefs faced off against the Arizona Cardinals winning their second preseason game of the year. Join Arrowhead Guys to recap the game.

Obviously Arrowhead Guys, this title is a little facetious. But perhaps the Kansas City Chiefs should break out the practice Lombardi Trophy. Because the Chiefs are 2-0 in the practice realm of the NFL, but after watching a couple showings from our beloved red and gold, it’s obvious that the team can still utilize a little motivation towards reaching their lofty goals. Breaking out the Practice Lombardi Trophy does have a Super Bowl Ring to it, but that’s mostly because we were all so ready to have the Kansas City Chiefs back in our lives (at least I was). With football actually back, we have to move on to the coming 2021 regular season and the reality that the rest of the league isn’t going to just get out of the way for our team.

Even with this contest against the Arizona Cardinals, there were signs that it’s definitely still preseason. The Kansas City Chiefs have a lot to improve on, even if they simply want to keep their practice winning steak alive against the Minnesota Vikings next Friday Night to obtain the practice “dynasty” trophy. They have a few things that, as a team, they need to work on every season. Simple things like: tackling, catching the ball, hitting the correct hole, blocking assignments, running efficient routes and being in the right place at the right time, per play design. Just the same freaking basics that we’re posting about in game threads or yelling at the TV or even screaming about at the NFL Stadium. Nevertheless, for the cheap words I wrap it in, it’s still the preseason and the Chiefs still have some time to get it together before the real show begins on Sept 12th, 2021 at 3:25 p.m. in front of an Arrowhead crowd that’s primed and ready for a revenge tour. Before that, I want to make sure and recap this contest in the desert against the Arizona Cardinals, as the Chiefs did pick up the “W“.

The Chiefs did indeed get it done in Arizona, but how did some of the best plays go? Well, with the preseason, a lot of times it’s easier just to look at some of the highlights. So I’ll let you take a peek at some of those of the ones BRaG posted in the Into The Afternight Thread. Before I get to that, I just want to give a shout-out to Direct TV for it being 2021 and them still not having a signal in a storm. And then I want to give another shout out to entitlement and first-world problems–where would blogs be without you? Who knows? When I watched the game, I thought that some Chiefs performed very well at times: Pringle, Hardman, Hughes, Jones, the offensive line, Mahomes and Kelce (as always) and a lot of players on defense–especially Thornhill on that amazing INT snag. Here are a few of the best plays:

Obviously, Mahomes and Kelce didn’t have their best night, but I included them because they showed enough to allow us to see they’re still dominant. One thing I’ll throw out there is a Mitchell Schwartz tweet about Patrick Mahomes spiking the ball on what seemed like a terrible Cassel-esque throw:

In the moment–and in the Gameday Threads, I don’t think many people considered this, as it just seemed like Mahomes was having an off night and seemed a little rusty. Now, if you follow Schwartz on Twitter, you’ll know that him and his brother are both excellent at talking about and dissecting the game. That doesn’t mean Schwartz’ B.S. excuse is a good one. I’m neutral about it. However, you could make your dog tilt it’s proverbial head sideways if you think about it. For me, this whole game was kind of like that. We had some really quality Chiefs moments. Splash plays. Rookies living up to their potential. There’s “the-who?” players making you take note of their names, like Derrick Gore and Daurice Fountain. Or the “still-here” guys like Marcus Kemp, Andrew Wylie, Ben Niemann and Gehrig Dieter somehow finding little ways to still be here. Having analysis from people like the Schwartz brothers explain it all into logical existence when things like NFL replays exist. But that’s part of the joy of preseason gameday threads, it’s reactive, and it doesn’t give a shit about logic in the moment–it only wants another touchdown or turnover–it wants to know “what the fuck was that?”–it wants to know why that player is still on the team. It’s the Gameday comments, and here are some of our most recent examples. Let’s roll:

Running ball is all attitude

Want to see this o-line bully, on Running plays in red zone

Tony Sommer 08/20/2021 7:42 pm

Well the starters on defense are looking good.

In any gameday threads you’re going to get a ton of questions. Player names. Rants of all sizes–from one word to block paragraphs. Even though we’re all still in preseason mode, a lot of our comments were on point. This piece would be bloated like Charger expectations in the offseason if I included all of the ones I want to throw in this, but I wanted to stop and piggyback on what Tony Sommer said, “Sofa King Good!” and it’s a great way to describe the offensive line play, but “so fucking much better!” also works. Even with all the preseason talk, I think it’s important to note that seeing good play in the trenches in the preseason is always a positive sign, but still might lead to fool’s gold once the blitzing starts really happening in the regular season. Back to the best comments:

steve_chiefs 08/20/2021 7:46 pm

Mahomes is frustrated with Hardman

he has better chemistry with Robinson and Pringle

Savagerider 08/20/2021 7:52 pm

I don’t think hardman or Robinson are going to be solid number 2s. Think we need to look for trade partners

Force Hardman enough and you will eventually get a TD.

Looks like he’s rehabbing nicely. Let’s hope this pick was a mental jolt, and he’s back in form.

[Best Practice Chiefs Play so far — CBO]

EAFOX 08/20/2021 8:48 pm

Game # 3 – Want to see Pringle start at # 2 and see what happens. He has made a strong case tonight. Hardman looks out of sync with Mahomes and DRob looks like he is not 100%

Chief-Blinders-On 08/20/2021 8:51 pm

That was great drive for Pringle and Hardman. Henne given Friday on Monday Night Football…. apparently. On Friday!

EAFOX 08/20/2021 8:51 pm

Best thought – we easily drove the field with the first team sans Hill and one Kelce catch.

Kudos to the offensive line – Last time I saw holes that big – I was married to my ex-wife

WaywerdSon 08/20/2021 11:10 pm

21 more wins to go

Conclusion

Well obviously, for a freaking preseason game–this recap took way too long to create, but I kind of like including the game day journey in these posts. With the Kansas City Chiefs, we all take it so serious, and we get into the mission of the journey to win it all: the Super Bowl. However, I think we need to try and enjoy the little journeys along the way. Which of these Chiefs receivers are going to take the number two spot? Who is going to be CEH’s backup running back? Who is going to be among the starting front five on the OL? Who is going to be a better CB — Baker or Hughes (a good problem to have!) Who is going to pour the Gatorade [Ed. Note: Hank Stram aided part of the development of the product when he coached the Gators.] on Andy Reid? The point is that it’s the preseason, and even though we won the practice Lombardi, I’m still very much looking forward to one last preseason game, so the Chiefs can put it all together. Win that one, and we’re talking practice dynasty…

Let’s roll!

One thing being left out of the fullback analysis is that a hidden benefit of a 3-4 D is that it means there are more LBs available for ST duties, and that’s a good thing for ST play. How do you make up for that shortfall in a 4-3? Carry a FB, such as Sherman, even if you don’t use him much on O.

I was a Burton skeptic. However, seeing him in the pre season, changed my mind. He is just a better athlete than Sherm was. I remember watching him at Rutgers and he lined up at the x and z and all over the place. Darwin showed why he is a legit RB in this league. But I don’t know. Burton could take the duke

I was a HUGE Mike Hughes fan coming out of UCF. Burton made 2 adjustment catches that showed me he can be a factor in this offense. Again, look at the passes and then look at what what he did with those.

Meanwhile, China has crept in and has taken over vast amounts of terrorizes via trade and negotiations . Has China fired one shot since Korea? We need to STOP all these stupid bombings, quit going woke and get focosed. End Rant

I’ve been frustrated with what’s going on in Afghanistan for nearly two decades, from the point where it became clear to me that Bush was going to attempt nation-building there. China, I largely agree with you, but that’s a problem that’s been going on for a long, long time. Both are a subset of our nation’s entire approach to diplomacy, however, so unless you address the problems we have there, there are no simpler fixes that will work.

Where we differ is that you load everything onto one Party and ignore the faults of your side and the better things about the other, you make that clear every time you have anything political to say. Making matters worse is that you’re down with the other side doing the same thing, maybe not intentionally, but if neither side changes, nothing changes. Things will get worse.

Those who’ve paid attention to me for any length of time has seen that I’m against both Partys, not just for saying so, but for criticizing both of them. The Left and Right cannot fix the opposite side, the Left and Right can only fix themselves, and meanwhile the quality of the candidates we keep getting keeps dropping on both sides, too.

I’ll leave it at that, since I doubt you are going to treat any of that as truthful, given things you’ve said to me in the past.

I wouldnt go so far as to say the founders were trying to eliminate “inequities” at least not in the way the modern left defines it. They most certainly were against group identity and political parties, and for what should now be rather painfully obvious reasons. There is no perfect political system, power inevitably corrupts, and as such, yoiu get what we see now. A ruling class that has immunized themselves from the concerns of the governed and enriched themselves beyond most peoples wildest fantasies. All by selling legislation to the highest bidder and creating a me good/otherside evil political narrative that ensures they will continue to garner votes even though they have done exactly nothing to improve the country. A pox on both their houses. The Rs and Ds is an illusion. There really is only one big party, and trust me, none of us are invited

Doing so has lent some credence to groups that actually try to embrace those misbegotten po0litical groups of WWII by watering the history of both down to a very thin soup. If everyone’s super…

I like it

I was dating a girl named Lorraine, then I started dating a girl named Claire Lee … Lorraine didn’t like that I was dating someone else, so she left me, but it’s all good because: I can see Claire Lee now, Lorrraine is gone

needs more nested parenthetical asides (if you know what I mean [and I’m sure that you do {although there ARE times when I wonder if you’re REALLY paying attention or just dreaming about some random NFL team}])

DEFENSE….. absolutely love watching the defense play, after two years of baby steps, nothing would be better than a giant leap forward.. and ya gotta love the three and outs.
Chiefs fans have never had both that I can recall. Good defense, less than desirable offense and vice a versa.
Can’t wait to see them play this year. And as always fuck the raiders….

The Chiefs were working on things and still dispatched the Cardinals on the road with ease!

I think Gore earned a spot in the NFL with his play on Friday, whether with the Chiefs or not is up in the air. Who I called Damien was actually. Darwin Thompson he looked great last night

Fountain has a spot in KC, don’t they all 🙂

I doubt I told you

But Gates on Main had lottery

They got rid of it and I went over to collect their Sat Dish from the Roof

Damn that roof smelled great, I got the Dish, but the Mount was smoked to their roof, couldn’t budge it 🙂

well, it was a renewed league from previous years and a bunch of old AG people didn’t come back, so at the last minute I asked for new recruits.

CBO, great post, much fun to read …

So glad you made the point about how (overly) seriously fans take football (practice? you’re talking about PRACTICE?!?)

So, if a dozen teams end up 3-0 in Practice Games, then you’ll have to award ALL of them a Lombardi Practice Trophy, in the interest of fair play

Seriously though, I urge each and every one out there to please not take the Chiefs or the NFL too seriously … bear in mind that it’s entertainment, similar to wrestling but without a pre-determined result (as far as we know,) and remember that the entertainers (players, coaches, etc) are human (yes, that includes Mahomes, Kelce and the rest)

Bottom line: if the team loses, don’t lose it … don’t go off the deep end because IT’S JUST A GAME and no matter how you slice it, that’s what it is

Do enjoy the games, the plays, the highs and even the lows … shout with joy at the INTs and pump your fists for the TDs, but remember what and who are REALLY TRULY important: family and friends

Laterz!
