|How will the Kansas City Chiefs perform in 2017? The CBS Sports crew doesn't seem too sure.
Nick Kostos,Womens Ethan Pocic Jersey, D.J. Williams, and former Chief Brady Quinn recently teamed up to preview this year's NFL season on the Pro Football Road Tour Kickoff Special,Authentic Delano Hill Jersey, Quinn was perplexed as to what the team might do this season., and when it came time to preview the Chiefs
"I don't know what to expect out of Kansas City," Quinn said. "You got rid of your general manager in John Dorsey this offseason. You traded up in the draft to take a first-round quarterback in Patrick Mahomes. No Jamaal Charles, no Jeremy Maclin; I don't know if this team is in a rebuild mode or if they can actually make a run into the playoffs.", no Dontari Poe
and if Alex Smith is good enough to lead the team to victory when it counts the most.,A popular topic of conversation was what will happen at the quarterback position
"Alex Smith I think at this point in his career, he's shown you he does not have what it takes to win that game in Foxboro, in Pittsburgh," Kostos said., or at home at Arrowhead against one of those teams in late January
Just one of many questions as the Chiefs get set to embark on what should be a fascinating 2017 season.
Preseason Week 1: 49ers at Chiefs game capsule
The next chapter in the new regime: The 49ers cleaned house after 2016 and are starting largely from scratch this season, with a new general manager (John Lynch), a new head coach (Kyle Shanahan), a new coaching staff with new schemes, so after an offseason full of change, and a roster filled with new players. Friday night's game will be the first time fans get a chance to see this team in a game situation, there will be heavy interest in seeing how the team looks across the board.
as have starting wide receivers Marquise Goodwin and Pierre Garcon. Running back Carlos Hyde is also looking good after reporting to camp in top physical shape. But the tight end position and interior of the offensive line are still up in the air. Will this group continue performing well against a talented Chiefs defense?,The first-team offense: Quarterback Brian Hoyer has by and large had a strong training camp
A strong group of rookies: This franchise needed young talent heading into the offseason,Authentic Eddie Lacy Jersey, fourth-round running back Joe Williams, and they got it in their 2017 draft and ensuing undrafed free agent haul. Among the rookies to draw positive reviews in camp that fans will get a chance to see includes first-round picks Solomon Thomas and Reuben Foster,Authentic Malik McDowell Jersey, third-round quarterback selection C.J. Beathard, fifth-round wide receiver Trent Taylor, sixth-round defensive tackle D.J. Jones,Authentic Ethan Pocic Jersey, and a slew of intriguing undrafted players in RB Matt Breida, TE Cole Hikutini,Womens Shaquill Griffin Jersey, S Lorenzo Jerome, S Chanceller James, WR Victor Bolden, and WR Kendrick Bourne.
Back-up QB battle: Speaking of Beathard, he's engaging in a competition for the No. 2 spot with veteran Matt Barkley. The competition will continue Friday, and this will be his first chance at game action., with Barkley seeing the field after starter Brian Hoyer is done and Beathard coming in after Barkley. Beathard has made strides as of late
and watch to see how the depth performs as well.,The cornerback position: Authentic Shaquill Griffin Jersey,This might be the biggest question mark on the 49ers at the moment. Keep an eye to see how they look against the Chiefs first-team offense
Kansas City Chiefs - Five things to watch:
but chances are there will be a few passing plays between them while they're in the game.,Smith to Hill: Second-year receiver Tyreek Hill is in the spotlight as he moves into a bigger receiver role following the offseason release of Jeremy Maclin. Hill has looked the part in practice so far as he and Alex Smith seem to be coming together to make a formidable combination. The two of them won't play long
particularly Houston. Fans will want to get a look at how each of them perform in their first action of the preseason.,Justin Houston and Derrick Johnson: Two players key to the defense's success who are looking to stay healthy after dealing with major injuries in recent seasons. Word out of camp so far is that each player looks good
The running backs: There's a spirited competition taking place at the running back position between Spencer Ware, Charcandrick West, C.J. Spiller, while Hunt and Spiller are the newcomers and have been stating their case in camp. This is a competition that could go on for a while., and rookie Kareem Hunt. Ware and West held down much of the rushing duties last season
Wide receivers other than Hill and Chris Conley: How things will shake out depth-wise at wide receiver for this team is still a bit of a question mark. Albert Wilson, De'Anthony Thomas, Demarcus Robinson, and rookies Jehu Chesson and Marcus Kemp are among the names to watch., camp surprise Seantavius Jones
who is competing for the No. 2 quarterback spot with Tyler Bray. Mahomes,The young gunslinger: The main attraction for the Chiefs in this game might be first-round draft pick Patrick Mahomes,Womens Eddie Lacy Jersey, who the Chiefs traded up in the draft to select, but how ready is he to play on Sundays? There's no rush at the moment,Womens Malik McDowell Jersey,Womens Delano Hill Jersey, has been earning raves, but this will be the first chance fans get to see Mahomes in game action. There will be a buzz when he's in the game.
