Game Summary

The Chiefs came out with a bang as Mahomes had a couple big plays to score a quick touchdown, bu the Vikings answered with a methodical drive of their own but settled for a field goal. The starters on offense continued to dominate, going down the field and scoring another touchdown with ease, leading the backups to come in early. The backups played well, extending the lead to 21-3 at half.

The Vikings finally managed to find the endzone to start the 2nd half after both teams traded turnovers, but Gore pulled off a big run to answer. The defense had a dramatic goal line stand in the 4th that was ruined by a Buechele pick-6. But that was the last excitement of the game as the backups held on for a victory (a garbage time touchdown not withstanding).

Wasn’t really impressed with Fountain. He had a few good grabs, a few misses, and a few short catches he couldn’t turn into 1st downs.

If Darrel Williams has trouble getting out of concussion protocol, Gore might have a chance to make the roster. Williams is our pass blocker – Not sure how Gore might stack up there.

i can’t see them moving Gore ahead of Williams unless he’s going to miss several weeks, which is REALLY unlikely.

I think that’s why they’ll probably keep 4 RBs plus Burton. Along with the fact they’ve dealt with a lot of injuries at RB over the last few years and I think they want to run it more this year than in the past.

this^^^ is what they SHOULD do

MAKE the other teams “stack the box” and a lot of motion and the OCCASIONAL pass on 1st (or 2nd) to keep ’em honest … but RUN RUN RUN (Forrest!) which, in theory, makes up for a “thin” WR Corps (plus, addl TE’s and making it LOOK like a run (with motion and whatever else Big Red dreams up) and toss to Noah Gray instead of Kelce

yeah, what fun … hold the ball for 45 min/game (keepaway!)

Williams is our pass blocker

that’s Burton’s job … besides, all the hype was that CEH was a great blocker … also, if Williams is hurt AT ALL Gore should move ahead of him just because the best ability is availability (my 2 cents; adjusted for inflation)

Battlin Buechele showed some grit – do not believe the interception was on him. Undecided if he might improve enough to become our backup at some point.

I think Andy and Veach may have liked that pick. It improved his chances of clearing waivers so he can be our QB3 on the PS.

I missed a lot of the second half shoring up things with a new friend. As Princess Irulan put it, a beginning is a very delicate time. Besides, he needed some support, he’s got psych issues, too. It’s a preseason game, but I might have done the same during a regular season game. Those are among my life priorities.

The only player I think may be cut and not clear waivers outside the OL is Powell. I think we could have some OL guys pinched. Other than that I expect everyone to clear waivers. And that’s because most GMs aren’t very good.

I don’t know – He has made some decent catches but he cannot latch on to an average group of receivers outside of Hill.

His draft assessment by teams is more important than his preseason tape. A smart GM will look at it as getting a free draft pick if the team had him on their board.

Doesn’t matter. If a team had him rated as a draft pick on their board they should grab him on waivers. Andy’s offense is notoriously difficult for rookie receivers, so I don’t think his preseason tape will matter.
