Chiefs say Tyreek Hill will play more but how much more?

Chiefs say Tyreek Hill will play more but how much more?

The top story line this offseason quickly went from Alex Smith-Patrick Mahomes to who in the heck will replace Jeremy Maclin in the Kansas City Chiefs offense. The thinking is that Tyreek Hill will be that guy. Andy Reid even said he would take his position. I do believe that Tyreek will be replacing Maclin as the top playmaker but as far as playing every snap? That’s still hard to see Tyreek doing. Last year, he played about 41 percent of the snaps but he still made a significant impact on offense and the return game. The Chiefs could use him on every snap this season and he may not...

Bucky Brooks lists Alex Smith as one of ten best college QBs he’s scouted

Bucky Brooks lists Alex Smith as one of ten best college QBs he’s scouted

He enters the 2017 season potentially competing for his job. There is all sorts of chatter about the 2018 quarterback class, and it is only going to intensify as the college season gets underway in a couple months. Every evaluator will have something to say about it, and it should make for a wild ten months between now and the 2018 NFL Draft. In the meantime, one talent evaluator decided to take a look back at some of the names he has looked at over the years. Bucky Brooks is going back to his notes, position-by-position, to come up with a ranking of the ten best players based on his...

Alex Smith has the same MVP odds as Odell Beckham, Rob Gronkowski and JJ Watt

Alex Smith has the same MVP odds as Odell Beckham, Rob Gronkowski and JJ Watt

We have MVP odds and the Kansas City Chiefs have a player listed thanks to John Dorsey signing him. Oops. Never mind, this isn’t a John Dorsey post. Alex Smith is the Chief listed among the MVP odds. There is no Jamaal Charles in KC anymore and he’s usually the one listed in these MVP odds. Alex is way down there at 66/1 odds but interestingly those are the same odds as Odell Beckham, Rob Gronkowski and Eric Fisher’s little brother, JJ Watt. Alex should be on this list because he’s the quarterback of a team that will be a playoff contender but I can’t envision the season he has...

Arrowheadlines: Chiefs praised for help with Ryan O’Callaghan

Chiefs' Tyreek Hill more mature, still improving ahead of second season | Sporting News Something to which Hill takes exception is when people say Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is a check-down quarterback. Hill said Smith has a much stronger arm than people give him credit and Kansas City’s ability to stretch the field could surprise some this season. “People are going to realize that this year,” Hill said. “Everybody’s going to eat. It’s not just one guy. We’ve got multiple weapons on this offense and everybody can make plays.” Former Chief Ryan O’Callaghan comes out as...

3 Kansas City Chiefs teams rank in the best offenses in the last 30 years

3 Kansas City Chiefs teams rank in the best offenses in the last 30 years

The Dick Vermeil-led Kansas City Chiefs offense was as good as you remember. In a ranking of the 30 best offenses of the last 30 years, Football Outsiders includes three Chiefs offenses and you can bet they weren’t the ones with Alex Smith leading them. First, what Football Outsiders did is use their stat DVOA to rank the offenses of the past 30 years. Why 30? Because that’s how far back their stats go. “Our DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) metric accounts for all [variables], measuring success on each play based on down and distance, then comparing it with an NFL average...

Eagles schedule preview: The Chiefs should be a big early season test | Bleeding Green Nation Who is Alex Smith going to get the ball to? Jeremy Maclin didn’t have his best season in 2016, but Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley haven’t yet shown that they replace him as “#1” receivers, and Smith isn’t capable of carrying them. Travis Kelce is excellent in the open field, but he hasn’t been great in the red zone, nor have the Chiefs, (3rd worst red zone offense in 2016, the Eagles 3rd best red zone defense), and the Eagles defense was #1 in DVOA against tight ends in 2016. The Chiefs...

Chiefs mailbag: Cap casualties, favorite players, the importance of s’mores

Chiefs mailbag: Cap casualties, favorite players, the importance of s’mores

This is the time of year that tests the mettle of everyone. A time of darkness and despair. A time ... when there’s no football news. The really horrible thing about this time of year is that, with nothing new to talk about, we tend to start devouring one another in repetitive arguments about a controversial issue. In previous offseasons, it was the Alex Smith Wars. This offseason, it appears to be the OTA Wars (whether players can miss OTA’s without being awful people, as far as I can tell). These arguments are useless, wearying, and overall awful to participate in. And so, like the...

Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, Kareem Hunt have the same rookie of the year odds

Bovada has released odds on the 2017 NFL rookie of the year and the Kansas City Chiefs have not one but two players mentioned: QB Patrick Mahomes and RB Kareem Hunt. They’re both at 20/1 odds to win. Mahomes would be much higher on this list if anyone expected him to play. He has the best supporting cast of any rookie quarterback. Alas, the Chiefs are hoping he doesn’t have to play this year. The scenario where he does would involve an injury to Alex Smith and perhaps even Tyler Bray, who is battling for the No. 2 job. The scenario where Hunt wins rookie of the year could involve an...

Check out pictures of Eric Berry, Marcus Peters and Justin Houston returning to Chiefs practice

And they’re back! The Kansas City Chiefs started mandatory minicamp on Tuesday and saw the return of Eric Berry, Marcus Peters and Justin Houston who had all skipped out on the voluntary practices to this point. They all said they’ve been working out and hanging out with family in the meantime. Their arrival means we have some new pictures. There are a few funny ones in there of Peters laughing with his teammates. The camera also caught a couple of goofy looks to the media. Alex Smith said that with those defensive guys coming back there is already more chirping going on. Sure looks...
