Kansas City executives redefined their offensive line after a 31-9 defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the LV Super Bowl. Andy Reed’s team kicks off their pursuit of their third consecutive Super Bowl visit at home at the Cleveland Browns – watch Sky Sports NFL live from 9:25 pm on Sunday.
If your last name is “Damn it,” this could be the most important season of your football career. Offensive tackle Charlie Heck enters his rookie year with the Houston Texans as a fourth-round pick from North Carolina; his father Andy Heck was the man tasked with uniting the ornate line of offensive of the chiefs of Kansas City.
The passing passes were confusing, Mahomes would have liked to have had a few more shots than usual, and in the first game since the former Super Bowl MVP became a starter, the Chiefs were unable to score a touchdown. The abnormal offensive traps, for which the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should also have a well-deserved merit, were mainly due to the fact that the defense came from injuries in the absence of starting tackles by Eric Fischer and Mitchell Schwartz.
General manager Brett Veach watched his half-billion-dollar quarterback nearly create one of Alec Baldwin’s greatest touchdowns worthy of a narrative in NFL history, as Magomez scrambled to his right before using a dagger from a pistol, diving on contact in the middle. air, only to see him slide through his hands and bounce off Darrell Williams’ facemask in the scoring area.
The controlled chaos of Andy Reid’s Rubik’s cube scheme was no longer there, so much so that even the powers of Mahomes became sterile.
“For us to go outside and not be able to get to the end zone at all is something that will haunt me for the rest of my career, but you learn, get better and make sure you are ready to go,” Mahomes told Peter King on NBC at the training camp.
Mahomes was fired three times, although there could be at least five, and was hit 10 times. Fischer and Schwartz were released a few weeks later, while center Austin Reiter and defender Kelechi Osemele, who spent much of 2020 in the injured reserve, became free agents.
And so the main question of the offseason centered around how the Chiefs would react to their rare test of inferiority. The question that Wich had the answer to, and one that he has often asked in recent years.
They acquired Orlando Brown Jr. and his 35-inch arms in exchange for Baltimore Ravens, responding to the pick of the 2018 third-round pick to play left tackle. They picked second-round center Creed Humphrey, who hasn’t been fired in his last two years in college, from Lincoln Riley’s exotic offense in Oklahoma, said Tennessee defender Trey Smith in the sixth round and signed former New England Patriots left-back Joe. Thuney on a five-year, $ 80 million deal.
Three-time Pro Bowl defender Kyle Long, who is currently listed as physically incapacitated, has stepped down as chief, while veteran Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff and 2020 third-round right selector Lucas Niang both returned from rejection.
