Andy Reid looking ahead to the Arizona Cardinals: ‘We know that they will be fresh’
Chiefs fans have likely heard a number of superlatives for the Chiefs’ offense, but this is a new one.
On “Good Morning Football” on the NFL Network on Monday, Nate Burleson compared the high-powered Chiefs offense to the hip-hop group, the Wu-Tang Clan.
Burleson started a group discussion about the Chiefs and listed the team’s offensive weapons.
“Well, I’m looking at Kansas City and all the different skill players that catch the ball out there: Anthony Sherman, Demetrius Harris, Demarcus Robinson, Spencer Ware, Chris Conley, (Sammy) Watkins, Tyreek Hill, (Travis) Kelce and Kareem Hunt, who we know was the leading rushing last season, but this season, he’s doing it on the ground and the air. For me this stands out.
“With all those guys I’ve named, being here in New York, it’s almost fitting, it’s almost like going to a concert and seeing Wu-Tang. You’ve got a whole bunch of members, everybody’s doing damage, everybody’s picking up the mic and rocking the mic. ... For me, I’m looking at this offense and I can appreciate it because they’re doing it with so many different individuals, along with (offensive coordinator) Eric Bieniemy, (coach) Andy Reid and how they’re calling this game every single week, making it easy for their quarterback.”
A couple interesting points were made by other members of the group.
Peter Schrager, an unabashed fan of quarterback Patrick Mahomes, noted that the Chiefs quarterback had thrown for 375 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday’s 37-21 victory in Cleveland. Those numbers didn’t draw much attention from NFL pundits.
“I think we’re almost numb to it,” Schrager said, who then compared the stats between Alex Smith last year and Mahomes this season.
And Kay Adams wondered how Chiefs coach Andy Reid managed to avoid the temptation of playing Mahomes last season when the Chiefs were struggling.
