Chiefs OC Bieniemy: Mahomes’ underhand TD toss called ‘Smoked Sausage’ | NFL.com

From no-look throws, to jump fakes to softball shovel passes, he seems to find news ways every week to make plays. Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said Mahomes’ underhand touchdown toss this past Monday was not planned that way — but the screen play does have a name that’s as exotic as it was executed: “Smoked Sausage.” Already the youngest player ever to win league and Super Bowl MVP, Mahomes has been adding his own flavors to Kansas City’s famous barbecue scene since he arrived.

Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy reveals play name for Anthony Sherman’s Week 3 touchdown | ChiefsWire

“Everybody talked about the screen, as well, that Sherm (Anthony Sherman) caught,” Bienemy said. “And that play was named ‘Smoked Sausage’ because we call Sherm ‘The Sausage.’ . . . One thing I will say, we have a very very creative group of people in this building that can come up with a variety of names and we keep it fun. And you know what? The guys embrace it, they make it fun as well. Because when you give them those particular plays they take ownership in it and they want it to work.”

Is Alex Okafor set to return for Chiefs vs. Patriots? | AA

The Chiefs first lost Okafor to a hamstring injury in Week 1 in their win over the Houston Texans to start the season. From there he’s missed complete games against the L.A. Chargers and Baltimore Ravens. Fortunately the team has gone on to win both games. Now as the team is gearing up for another AFC showdown, the Chiefs are getting Okafor back in practice for the first time since the injury.

Whether Okafor is actually able to play is anyone’s guess at this point. The Chiefs still have another day of practice before the game and that will say a lot about his availability. Okafor has been limited for the last two practices, but even that is more promising than missing entire weeks with the hamstring. At this point, it would seem his designation would be questionable.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has admired Patriots QB Cam Newton for a long time | ChiefsWire

“I wish I could do some of the things that he does as far as how physical he is and the way he’s able to make plays happen,” Mahomes said. “He’s a great football player. Like you said, I watched when he was at Auburn. I guess he went to Blinn College, which is down there kind of close to East Texas. He played against like TJC (Tyler Junior College) and some of those junior colleges. I saw his highlights then when I was back in high school in those days.”

Kansas City Chiefs: Madden simulation for Week 4 vs Patriots | KCK

Madden thinks this game is going to be another blowout for the Chiefs, as the video game thinks KC will win by two touchdowns to move to 4-0 on the year. Even with that being the case, the Patriots put up points offensively with Newton throwing for nearly 300 yards and three touchdowns, but he’s limited to just 13 yards on the ground.

It looks like Edwards-Helaire is back to his Week 1 self with a big rushing performance and finding the end zone again. The Patriots look to struggle running the ball against KC and none of their receivers have particularly crazy days. Mahomes spreads the ball out well again this week, connecting with Hill for two touchdowns, Watkins for one touchdown, and Kelce for a touchdown. Hardman has another big game too despite not finding the end zone.

Chiefs to Host Patriots Sunday; Important Reminders Announced | Chiefs.com

The Chiefs will take part in the NFL’s annual Crucial Catch: Intercept Cancer campaign this weekend at Arrowhead Stadium. The league’s Crucial Catch campaign is designed to raise early cancer detection awareness and promote healthy living habits. Chiefs and Patriots players and coaches, along with game officials, will wear special gear with the Crucial Catch emblem and color scheme. Arrowhead Stadium will also feature Crucial Catch signage, end zone stencils and banners. Much of the apparel worn by players and coaches at the game, along with brand new Crucial Catch game items, will be auctioned off through the league’s official NFL Auction website, nflauction.nfl.com/, with proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society.

Patriots’ Cam Newton Says Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes Is ‘Changing the Game’ | B/R

“Man, he’s changing the game,” Newton said of Mahomes on Thursday, per Mike Reiss of ESPN. “I think he’s shining light on the new wave of quarterbacks. It’s just fun to watch.”

“It’s not like he’s just back there and it’s an arcade game. Sometimes it looks like it, but he knows exactly what he’s doing and how he’s manipulating the defense. That’s the same thing that the Dan Marinos used to do. Obviously the Tom Bradys. The Aaron Rodgers. Those guys really have so much command of the offense that you dictate to the defense. That’s what he’s doing. He’s playing the game at a high level.”

Superdome opening at 25%. That’s a pretty big deal considering the issues LA has had with covid.

If there’s one guy in the NFL that has earned the success that our club is experiencing, it’s Big Red. He has displayed nothing but commitment to his players, Kansas City and the NFL. His perseverance is second to none. We are so fortunate to have him as our HC.

I think we should fire him and trade the Jets for Adam Gase. Do you think they would give him up for Patrick?

I think they would give up Central Park, Long Island, Brooklyn, and the Statue of Liberty for Patrick

No deal. Have you seen what’s been happening to NY real estate prices lately?

People running from their liberal voting so they can make the same bad choices somewhere else.

Nah. That’s California.

NYC, well, I mean if you are able to do your job from home, then why would you choose to live in a city that crowded?

I’m with you there. I’ve visited California, it’s a gorgeous place with a lot of great people. I don’t understand why it’s got so many people who….don’t care about anything but their own ideas.

I hope the Fisher play was called “Finding Nemo.”

They need to have a third and short play to Fisher called “Fish Sticks.”
