Chiefs RG Trey Smith seeking improvement, consistency ahead of playoffs | yahoosports

https://sports.yahoo.com/chiefs-rg-trey-smith-seeking-164504835.html

“I think there’s always more to achieve,” Smith said of the play up front after 16 games. “You could play for 10-plus years and there’s always something you can do better, something you can learn. I’m not satisfied with where I’m at. There are a lot of things I can do better. Being more consistent in my game and that’s once again, not only on the field on Sundays or Saturdays this week, but it’s every day in practice, it’s building better habits every day as I go on.”

How Chiefs Line Overcame Injuries | footballoutsiders

https://www.footballoutsiders.com/word-muth/2022/how-chiefs-line-overcame-injuries

NFL Week 17 – The Chiefs lost a heartbreaker in a bit of a bizarre finish against the Bengals this past Sunday. They tied the game at 31-31 with about six minutes to go but never saw the ball again. After a penalty gave the Bengals a fresh set of downs at the goal line, Cincinnati kneeled the ball out and kicked a field goal with no time on the clock. It had to be an agonizing drive for the Chiefs offense to watch from the sidelines.

Chiefs vs. Broncos, Week 18 | chiefswire

Even though Denver has been eliminated from playoff contention, and doesn’t have much to play for, they’re still a dangerous team. I expect the Chiefs are treating them as such in their preparations this week. The last thing they can afford to do is overlook this opponent with an eye toward the playoffs. After the disappointing loss to the Bengals in Week 17, this squad needs to execute a complete game plan against a divisional opponent to close out the season. Offense, defense and special teams — all executed at a high level.

Game day! I did wear red yesterday, and all.

So, going through my poems on my day off, I found that what would you know? I’ve written 38 of them this year! Amazing! Hadn’t realized it was so many. I am even more certain I want to make these into an e-book and sell them to benefit charity this year.

What Chiefs’ players’ charity or foundation should I choose? I have a few thoughts but want your opinions.

Derrick Nnandi. Good VA native, picks up pet adoption fees along with other things, not such a huge star that he could fund it all by himself.

Tight End Receptions
Tony Gonzalez 1325
Jason Witten 1228
Antonio Gates 955
Shannon Sharpe 815
Greg Olsen 742
Jimmy Graham 711
Travis Kelce 700

Tight End Receiving Yards
Tony Gonzalez 15127
Jason Witten 13046
Antonio Gates 11841
Shannon Sharpe 10060
Rob Gronkowski 9149
Travis Kelce 8972

Assuming 100 receptions and a 1000 yards receiving per season, Kelce needs six more banner seasons to be right behind Tony G. Knowing he will slow down at some point – the numbers will slowly start to drop – will he have enough juice to be on top of both of these lists before he joins the Hall of Fame?

HoF? yeah, most likely … that said, he might pass 1k in receptions, and MAYBE pass Witten in yards (wouldn’t bet on it) but most likely HoF-worthy numbers time it’s all said and done

I would add Wilfork. I think as much as anyone on those NE teams, he was resposnsible for how well those defenses performed. Maybe the best runstopping DT of the last 20 years.

Here are the last two votes for the first round of the tournament. I will then complete the bracket and bracket play is scheduled to start on Monday. A very sincere thank you to all of those who have participated. Nothing sucks more than working hard on something and having it being ignored by the group. The interaction has been golden.

Shows how diverse our opinions can be. Had I been the only one picking – the field would be very different. Around two thirds of my picks have moved on to the bracket. Hope the bracket proves to be just as interesting.
