Short Order: A Brief Look at Some New Chiefs

 19 replies

Meet a few of the new faces with the Kansas City Chiefs

Since we’re in the slowest part of the off-season, I looked around and found some looks at our new guys. First up is Darwin Thompson.

But why stop there, have another.

And with the next one I can get two birds with one stone with another video from this new Youtube guy doing a take on Khalen Saunders. Whether Wess is an expert or even right is beside the point. He’s enthusiastic and forthright, and doesn’t worry about his image.

Right, wrong, or otherwise, these video takes all left me feeling upbeat, and I hope they do the same for all y’all.

Cudi calling Darwin ‘Damien’ for the whole video was seriously fucking with my OCD…

Thompson’s contact balance and hurdling ability remind me of K. Hunt, but Thompson looks faster.

That second D Thompson video cracked me up. Any time I see him run now I’m going to hear “Take it to the house young fella”.

Looking forward to seeing how Khalen Saunders and Derek Nnadi hold up in the middle.

Hopefully not for a lack of Jones…

Oh, I wasn’t forgetting Jones. But seeing as how you bring it up: I read the AG Round Table discussion on CJ and it wasn’t as positive as I expected. And Dan in the 810 broadcast (you go Dan!) said the numbers are far apart. So as a fan I’m learning to have flexible and realistic expectations. Yes, I think the Chiefs can win the big one with or without Jones. Having Nnadi and Saunders become reliable and maybe even better is necessary either way.

My suspicion is they were getting close to a deal, had some parameters in place, and then the Frank Clark contract happened and Jones agent came back to the table with a bigger number.

I like these two a lot. Saunders just seems to have a great spirit, and brings energy. Darwin will turn some heads I’m sure. Thanks for posting this BRAG.

Darwin, has some solid playmaker abilities. IF, strong If, he can learn to pass protect he will find a role in quick order

I love RBs that can catch and run and Darwin seems to have good hands. Thanks for sharing this, BRAG!

Lets hope so. Every offensive player that can score, should be looking for the ball and a threat anytime they touch the field. Mahomes gives us that much flexibility. Simply overwhelm the defenses with a roster full of touchdown scorers.

Agreed. I also think the Mahomes factor on offense is going to be telling. In the past the guys were only going to be as good as the QB was, still the case today but with the MVP of the league I think these fellers are going to constantly keep improving.

Plus Saunders can back flip. He’s the biggest guy I’ve ever seen do a back flip.

Darwin seems like another toy for Andy Reid to play with. Reid will put him in position to make some plays.

This season has every chance at being a real fun one to watch and I can’t wait!
