Walter Loves Us


30. Kansas City Chiefs: A.J. Johnson, ILB, Tennessee I'd have to think Andy Reid would look at his offensive and defensive line before the linebacking corps, but A.J. Johnson is the top prospect available. He'd be a big upgrade over Akeem Jordan. Pick change; previously Antonio Richardson, OT

TOT represents odds of making the playoffs in any fashion.

The Raiders ran out of Gas


What it means: Depth is an issue for the Raiders, no doubt. So when they had to play the final three quarters without their starting offensive backfield as quarterback Terrelle Pryor (concussion) was inactive and running back Darren McFadden (hamstring) and fullback Marcel Reece (knee) were both lost in the first half, it didn't go well. Simply put, Matt Flynn, Rashad Jennings and Jamize Olawale simply did not have enough staying power as Flynn was sacked seven times. And the defense, which started out hot, simply ran out of gas after a 14-0 lead.

Teicher reports


Fisher out: Tackle Eric Fisher, the first pick in this year's NFL draft, received a concussion and didn't play in the second half. Donald Stephenson took his place and the Chiefs didn't lose anything with Fisher out of their lineup.

Arrowhead is going to be Roaring


Only able to move the ball forward 20 yards by the time they found themselves down 31-0 in the middle of the third quarter, the Giants suffered through the embarrassing defeat that highlighted the team’s troubles.

Andy's Offense vs Philly


Nobody joined those stories together and few gave Reid credit for being a pretty creative coach in his own right.

Clock Killers


Killing the clock: The Chiefs, for the second straight week, were able to protect their lead with a long, clock-eating drive. They had a 15-play, 75-yard drive in the fourth quarter that consumed more than eight minutes and ended with a field goal that turned out to be the final points of the game. The Chiefs had the ball for more than 12 minutes in the fourth quarter.

An interesting Mock Draft


*The 2014 draft order was determined by a combined poll of staff.



Final Thoughts: Football is a game of inches, as the cliche goes, and the inches weren't always on the Eagles' side. Philadelphia left so many points on the board. Missed opportunities galore. Ultimately, it cost them the game. With this team, there are flashes of what they could be one day. The potential is there. But they are still very much a work in progress. The defense simply lacks talent in the secondary and couldn't generate any kind of substantial pass rush on Rivers. While we're at it, they couldn't stop the run either. Nate Allen in particular was a liability. Respect to the Chargers and Rivers, who is still very much a good QB when he has time to throw. The offense is without a doubt the life of this Eagles team.

15+ sacks for Houston?


Houston plays with some other strong pass-rushers, such as Hali, nose tackle Dontari Poe, inside linebacker Derrick Johnson and safety Eric Berry. But that should only help and not hurt his cause. Opponents can spend only so many resources blocking Houston.

Might be the Chiefs 7th round pick?


Dante Rosario - TE - Bears Cowboys traded TE Dante Rosario to the Bears in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick. Rosario slides in behind every-down tight end Martellus Bennett and blocker Steve Maneri. He has 99 career catches for 1,106 yards and eight touchdowns across six seasons with the Panthers, Broncos and Chargers. Source: Todd Archer on Twitter Sep 2 - 10:18 AM

What to watch for Saturday


The Chiefs make only one list in Position Depth or not. Ha, Fullback. Which teams to watch for position players we might need.

Jamaal Targets


The numbers don’t lie in this case. 75 to 85 targets are right about in Andy Reid’s wheelhouse and Alex Smith has always been a good dump off passer. That puts Charles at 55-65 receptions, which coupled with his big play ability places him in line with 2,000 total offensive yards.

Is Tony Moeaki Available?


ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on NFL Insiders that the Patriots are "putting out feelers" about available tight ends. Jacob Tamme, Clay Harbor, and Tony Moeaki are just a few names that could be available. Whether the Patriots' interest in tight ends has anything to do with their expectations on Rob Gronkowski's (back surgery) recovery is impossible to say. It's also possible they're not pleased with Daniel Fells and Jake Ballard behind Zach Sudfeld. The Boston Herald reported Monday that Gronk remains "right on schedule" for a return in mid-September.

Baldwin in trouble


Reid may be losing patience with Baldwin: "I can tell you that when given the opportunity in this league you’d better catch the football."

Ryan Lilja


With Dan Koppen out for the year with an ACL injury – and the starter before him J.D. Walton out until at least midseason – the Broncos brought Ryan Lilja (+2.0) out of retirement to fill the void at center. Lilja looked as if he hadn’t been retired at all, playing 41 snaps and proving a force in the run game. A perfect example was at 2:16 left in the third quarter, when Denver ran the ball on fourth-and-one. Though the run ultimately fell short, it was no fault of Lilja’s, who drove NT Lamar Divens a yard-and-a-half off the ball. The center also posted a clean sheet in pass protection, providing early optimism that this offensive line won’t miss a beat once the regular season rolls around.

Will Gabbert make it to the Season Opener


Blaine Gabbert - QB - Jaguars Coach Gus Bradley expressed frustration with Blaine Gabbert after Saturday's training camp practice. Gabbert's first three plays went like this: nearly-botched handoff, fumbled center exchange, and collision with LG Will Rackley to force another fumble. Gabbert put the ball on the ground again as he tried to pump-fake, and also bobbled a shotgun snap. "It's not acceptable," Bradley said. "We’re not going to tolerate it." Gabbert finished practice 18-of-30 passing with an interception. Source: Florida Times Union Jul 27 - 4:32 PM

The person also confirmed a report from The Denver Post that Miller had tested positive for marijuana in 2011, Miller's rookie season, a result that landed Miller in the league's drug offender program. That program has several phases, and includes random, unannounced drug tests.
