Keep Your Enemies Close – 5 Questions with Arrowhead Addict on the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Kansas City Chiefs

 

The Jacksonville Jaguars make their 2013 regular season debut this Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs with a completely revamped roster and coaching staff. Like the Jaguars, the Chiefs changed quite a few things after joining the Jaguars at the top of the draft last year. We decided to get some intel on this year’s Chiefs by asking our Fansided Bro Andrew Kulha from Arrowhead Addict a few questions…

There were some BIG changes in Kansas City this offseason. Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

 

1. The Chiefs seemed to be locked into Luke Joeckel with the first overall pick until a week or so before the draft when buzz started to grow about Eric Fisher. Has Fisher looked the part of the first overall pick and has the decision to take him over Joeckel looked good thus far?

Fisher has had his ups and downs this preseason. He dealt with some lingering minor injuries and his play has been inconsistent. He looks how a rookie lineman should be, a bit overwhelmed. Still, he obviously has tremendous talent, good size and overall, he’s progressing. I don’t think many are worried about him.

 

2. How has Alex Smith looked in Andy Reid’s offense? Was a second round pick too much to give up for him?

Alex Smith is who we thought he would be. He’s very accurate and isn’t afraid to check down and go with the safe throws. I think he’ll do great in Kansas City. The Chiefs have talent for him to throw to, and Reid’s scheme will only empower that talent. Smith may not light the world on fire with his numbers  but he’ll be able to lead this offense and that’s what Kansas City needs from him. The Chiefs needed a quarterback, so I’m fine with them giving up a second round pick.

 

3. The Chiefs had some talent last year (6 Pro Bowlers) but still finished with only two wins. What’s going to spark the turnaround this year?

This is simply just a new franchise with a new mindset and direction. John Dorsey is a smart general manager who learned with a great organization in the Packers. Andy Reid is a proven coach, and his assistants have brought a lot to the table as well. Special teams, offense and defense is all new.

 

4. Who is an under-the-radar player the Jaguars should be looking out for this Sunday?

Wide receiver Donnie Avery. He’s been tabbed as the No. 2 wideout opposite of Dwayne Bowe, and if the Jags roll coverage over Bowe, Avery is talented enough to rack up some nice catches.

 

5. What’s an area of concern for the Chiefs going into this game against the Jaguars?

Overall, there’s a good vibe surrounding the team. The concern is that we haven’t seen anything when the wins and losses mean anything yet. Talk is talk, and now we want to see if the Chiefs can walk the walk when it really matters.

    To the guy who asked the questions. Until you can spell “fisher” correct, you have zero merit. Good day

    • Daniel Lago

      Since we’re nitpicking, it’s “Fisher.” Names are generally capitalized.

      I have a question, why do people seem to think they need to correct someone when they make a mistake? Are you perfect? For a fact I know your not, but what I can tell you is that your a sad little person. Your so insecure that you feel the need to come on to a sports blog and dog the writer for one small mistake. Your an absolute loser and need to get a life. I’m am an opposing fan and couldn’t help but point out how much of a loser you are. The sad thing is pieces of shit like you are more and more common these days. You come on these blogs and insult people to make your self feel better, but in person you wouldn’t have the balls to do because you would get your ass beat. You need grow up and get a life. Your just a low life piece of trash.
