Chiefs news for 23 May 2020
“We’ve got a guy who can do 4th-and-15,” Reid said, via Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star.
There isn’t a single game on that gauntlet of a schedule that the Chiefs can’t vanquish. The Chiefs will tour the AFC East, NFC South and face two of the best AFC teams in the Texans and Ravens, but let’s start with the AFC East.
Mahomes might not ever throw for 5,00 yards and 50 touchdowns again, but he’s still getting better. That’s what so scary; at the age of 24, after only two fill seasons as a starting quarterback, he’s the best player in football and he’s only getting going. It might be early, but Mahomes has a chance to become the best quarterback in NFL history.
“First of all, we love our fans,” Reid said. “They are the loudest in the world. It’s ridiculous how loud it gets for our opponents. But on the other hand, we’ll still go play and it’ll be kind of that way. There will probably be a lot more talk from the players that you can here. You know, those guys get pretty creative out there in their conversations. But the fans, we’ll miss them if that’s where it goes, but we’ll still be able to function.”
Under the newly proposed changes, the Chiefs would have been able to put Henne on the injured reserve list right away with no penalty. Also if Speaks, Lovett and Davis were deemed healthy at any point during the 2019 season, they would now be among the players eligible to return from IR.
“I was very impressed with his tape with regards to all of the things that he did,” Spagnuolo said about the incoming rookie. “He played corner and he’s a big corner, he played some nickel, he covered the slot receivers and they actually played him at safety. I thought he did really good at all of them.”
