Steve Spagnuolo on replacing Charles Omenihu: ‘Everybody has to up their game’ | Chiefs Wire

Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo might be Brock Purdy’s biggest fan | Yahoo! Sports

https://sports.yahoo.com/chiefs-defensive-coordinator-steve-spagnuolo-233645057.html

“Part of it is that he’s so poised,” Spagnuolo said on Monday’s Opening Night, when I asked him why Purdy has been so very good against the blitz this season. “I don’t think people give him enough credit for the talent he has. And then, he’s got all those weapons around him. I’ve been thoroughly impressed with what I’ve watched on tape over the last eight days. I’ve watched about every game now, and I don’t see the guy making very many mistakes.”

“I think the biggest way I’ve changed is just kind of knowing what to expect of the week,” the Chiefs QB stated on February 5. “I’ve obviously grown as a quarterback and as a leader and as a person but being able to have a gameplan for what the Super Bowl week entails — and prepare myself to not play the Super Bowl before the Super Bowl game — is something that I’m hoping that I can use to my advantage.”

“I think you approach it like any other game; I never feel like the underdog,” Mahomes told reporters. “I always feel like we have a chance to win the football game, and that’s how we approach every single game. We were underdogs in the last Super Bowl, so all you can do is just have that same mindset of just going out there, playing your best football, and hoping that you end up with a win.”

Kevin Harlan: simply one of the best ever

The Super Bowl will be a broadcasting family affair.

Veteran radio play-by-play announcer Kevin Harlan and his daughter, sideline reporter Olivia Harlan Dekker, will become the first father-and-daughter duo to cover and call a Super Bowl.

The 30-year-old Harlan Dekker, who previously covered the NFL and NBA for ESPN, CBS and Fox Sports, now works for Sky Sports’ and Westwood One Radio’s NFL and NCAA coverage as an in-studio host, presenter and analyst as well as a sideline interviewer.

The 63-year-old Harlan, the son of former Green Bay Packers executive Bob Harlan, is completing his 39th consecutive season as an NFL play-by-play announcer, and is in his 37th season doing NBA play-by-play.

The Chiefs-49ers Super Bowl on Sunday will be his 14th consecutive for Westwood One Radio. He has been the lead NFL radio voice for Westwood One and “Monday Night Football” since 2009. He also does television play-by-play for CBS and calls preseason games for his hometown Packers.

The only reason they are so high this year is that last years needed to be replaced as well.
