Chiefs vs. Bears: 5 winners, 2 losers

The Kansas City Chiefs ended up with plenty of winners over the Chicago Bears. Here are a few of them: WINNERS WR Chris Conley Small thing but he caught two passes for 30 yards and both of them went for first downs. When you compare that with Albert Wilson’s one catch for four yards - and a drop - it looks pretty good. Conley is your No. 2 on the outside. DE Chris Jones The Chiefs rookie sure looked good again. The Chiefs are going to continue to give him a little more and a little more. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was rotating in quite a bit more in Week 16 than he is in Week 2. He...

Chiefs CB Phillip Gaines is back, and we can (maybe) relax

Few things have concerned me more this preseason than the cornerback situation (well, outside linebacker, but let’s not talk about that right now, OK?). After both Seattle and Los Angeles seemed to pass at will on the Chiefs, it was hard not to get uneasy about the players lining up to replace Sean Smith. Phillip Gaines, the guy everyone expected to take Smith’s spot opposite Marcus Peters, didn’t practice during a great deal of training camp and had yet to make an appearance in a preseason game (rumors that he was struggling to come back from injury kept creeping up among fans)....

Bears QB Connor Shaw isn’t happy with hit from Chiefs lineman that broke his leg

For the second week in a row, the Kansas City Chiefs are accused of playing dirty. Chicago Bears QB Connor Shaw broke his leg in ugly fashion. Not that any broken legs are easy to watch but Shaw’s leg was clearly broken after he was pulled to the ground by Chiefs DE Rakeem Nunez-Rochez. Earlier this morning, Shaw posted on Twitter that the hit was "cheap BS". Injuries are a part of the game & I understand that. This should've been avoided. No need for that type of cheap BS! https://t.co/pekgWZPV0a — Connor Shaw (@cmshaw8) August 28, 2016 Uh-oh. Something similar happened last week...

Chiefs GM says Kenneth Acker is ‘right there at the Mendoza Line’

While the Kansas City Chiefs were putting the beatdown on the Chicago Bears on Saturday afternoon, GM John Dorsey was busy making a trade with Chip Kelly and the San Francisco 49ers. Andy Reid found out about the trade minutes before he was speaking to the media so he didn’t know much about him. Dorsey was available to the media after the game and he talked a little bit about who Acker is. “Last year, he played basically 70 percent of the snaps with three interceptions. As Toub said, he’s a four-phase special teams guy. He’s got the measurables. He’s right there at the Mendoza...

It’s Eric Berry day in Kansas City

Today is the day we are expecting Eric Berry to return to the Kansas City Chiefs. Multiple reports emerged over the past few days that Berry is expected to report back to the Chiefs on Sunday. Which is today. So it’s Eric Berry day. Berry will need to sign his $10.8 million franchise tender in order to formally join the team. That money is already accounted for in the Chiefs approximately $3 million in salary cap space. Berry will likely be able to play the first regular season but is unlikely to play in Thursday’s preseason finale against Green Bay. Andy Reid said after Saturday’s...

49ers trade a cornerback to the Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have just traded for a cornerback. According to Andy Reid, the San Francisco 49ers are sending CB Kenneth Acker to Kansas City in exchange for what is likely a conditional draft pick. Andy Reid announced that the #Chiefs have traded an undisclosed draft pick to the #49ers for CB Kenneth Acker.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) August 27, 2016 Acker is a 6’, 195-pound cornerback out of SMU, which is where Chiefs owner Clark Hunt went to school. Acker (6'0", 195 pounds) was a sixth round pick by the #49ers out of SMU in 2014. Spent 2014 on IR, had 3 INTs (tied...

Chiefs-Bears final score: Alex Smith is a boss and so is the defense in 23-7 KC win

That was fun. The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Chicago Bears 23-7 in the third preseason game. The Chiefs offense looked sharp but could’ve put up more touchdowns instead of field goals. The Bears offense made mistakes but credit the Chiefs defense for their best performance to date. Overall, you leave this game feeling pretty good about the Chiefs, who are hoping to get Eric Berry back on Sunday. Final stats are here. Alex Smith is ready for the season There’s no doubt about it. Alex Smith balled out on a few drives against the Bears. In fact, I wanted to take him out before the first...

Nick Foles to Tyreek Hill is my new favorite preseason connection

Tyreek the Freak is showing himself. After an electrifying training camp, some of Tyreek Hill’s talent is translating to the field. Hill had a near 20-plus yard catch from Nick Foles in the second half of Saturday’s game against the Bears. This after he had a 20-plus catch from Foles last week, too. And then... Nick Foles to Tyreek Hill is my favorite preseason connection of all-time— Chase Snyder (@ChasingSnyder) August 27, 2016 Foles wound up later in the same drive and threw a bomb to Hill. The ball was underthrown - it’s impossible to overthrow him - so Hill stopped, the...

It’s preseason and Alex Smith is laying out for the first down

Alex Smith is ready for the regular season. You can tell he’s locked in this preseason. Oh. You let Alex Smith get out of the pocket?Bad idea. #KCvsCHI https://t.co/2NJSwn6rb4— NFL (@NFL) August 27, 2016 The Chiefs were facing a third and 14 against the Bears on Saturday afternoon. As you know, this is not where the Chiefs excel. They are not good on third and long. Alex Smith apparently didn’t care because he did a great job eluding the pass rush and running for 15 yards and the first down. As you can see above, the Chiefs have a third and 14 with four...

Chiefs C Mitch Morse is sick, won’t play vs. Bears

The Kansas City Chiefs broadcast team of Carter Blackburn and Trent Green announcd at the top of the Chiefs-Bears game that Mitch Morse was injured during warmups and would not play. Zach Fulton started at center in his place. Uhh, what? Injured? I’m not sure what happened. BJ Kissel came on air and said that Morse was “ill” so maybe it’s not an injury. I will say that this is a pretty good sign that Fulton is likely to make the roster. He can back up both guard positions and he’s the top backup center. More on Morse when we know it.

Chiefs vs. Bears preseason: Chris Conley’s encore among what to watch for

The KC Chiefs visit the Chicago Bears in the third game on the preseason schedule. There are a few things I’ll be looking for in this game. Welcome back, Phillip Gaines Andy Reid says there’s a good chance that Gaines, the presumed No. 2 cornerback, will make his preseason debut. This would be some much needed good news for the Chiefs as the second corner position is arguably the most important position battle remaining. The Chiefs other corners have gotten a lot of work so I’m curious to see how much the Chiefs play him as he continues to come off his torn ACL early last season. I...

I don’t see Phillip Gaines’ name listed. Andy Reid says there’s a good chance that Gaines will make his...

Chiefs vs. Bears: Game Preview from Chiefs.com Conley, in Smith's eyes, has especially taken strides in his second preseason. "The guy is extremely physically talented," Smith added. "You just start banking things that you're learning, whether it's out at practice or in the games. They all contribute to being a good football player and in his case, a well-rounded receiver. To be able to move him around, to be able to understand how he's being played and all the...

Chiefs’ Clark Hunt looks to be a player among NFL owners

Earlier this year the KC Star’s Sam Mellinger wrote a feature on Chiefs owner Clark Hunt that talked about the respect other owners and those around the league had for him. We’re not really privy to the inner workings of NFL owners so it was neat to see the curtain peeled back to show that Clark does have some influence. Here’s another sign of Clark’s influence around the league: he was named to the NFL’s new Chairmen’s Committee, a small group of owners who are among NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s closest advisers. Along with Clark the committee is made up of the...

He was out for a week with his injury but came back this week. I wonder if the doctors haven’t cleared him for...

Chiefs-Bears preview: 5 questions with the enemy

SB Nation blogs are playing fantasy football with Yahoo! this year. Sign up for their fantasy leagues here. Thanks to Dane over at Windy City Gridiron, SB Nation’s Chicago Bears blog, for answering my Chiefs-Bears questions ahead of Saturday’s game. Check out our Q&A below and check out my answers to his questions here. 1. Name one Bears offensive player we should watch out for. WCG: I'll give you one, plus two bonuses. Running back Jeremy Langford was intended to be the heir to Matt Forte's throne and in his rookie 2015 season he did a great job when splitting time with Forte. But...

Justin Houston sighting in Kansas City

I saw a tweet a few weeks ago of Justin Houston with a fan in St. Joe. Other than that, I haven’t actually seen Justin Houston in a long time. He’s been out recovering from his ACL surgery, which has kept him out of sight. So that’s why this tweet from BJ Kissel is notable. We can lay our eyes on old friend Justin Houston: .@JHouston50 introduced at the #Chiefs kickoff luncheon. pic.twitter.com/m7T57Ug3Re— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) August 26, 2016 This came at the kickoff luncheon in Kansas City earlier on Friday. I don’t know what I expected but it’s good to see him...

Are the Kansas City Chiefs boring?

I recently saw a snippet on the internet where Colin Cowherd was summing up each team in the NFL in three words. When it came to the Chiefs he said “Good, but boring.” Naturally this made me think. Are the Chiefs boring? What Makes an NFL Game Exciting? You can agree or disagree with me, but I think on offense the following plays are exciting: Touchdowns Passing Plays of 25+ Yards Rushing Plays of 10+ Yards We’ll call the bottom two in that list big plays. On defense I’d say the following are exciting. Defensive Touchdowns Interceptions Fumble Recoveries Sacks So how do we go...
