“We had a pretty good practice out there today” offensive coordinator Brian Daboll said after practice on Monday. And with that, the offensive performance of Friday night was put to bed. Monday was a day to get better for the Chiefs and it appeared that way, at least according to the man who is calling the plays.
The one common goal that all Chiefs offensive personel talked about on Monday was getting off to a fast start. You may recall, last season was a season of slow starts. The Chiefs could not get out of their own way. From Daboll to Jamaal Charles and even Kevin Boss, the message after practice was simple. Score early and score often.
It was another big day for Jon Baldwin. He continues to have a rapport with Matt Cassel that is beyond good. He continues to make catch after catch. He is even making the hard plays look easy. Jalil Brown has been matched up against Baldwin with Brandon Flowers still out, and even though Baldwin was making the majority of plays, we still saw Baldwin get better on the field on Monday.
The offense concentrated on the red zone again. They are still working on areas that held them back last season. I also learned that the offense doesn’t just look at what its skill players do well, they also look to see what the linemen do well. Jack Bicknell, the offensive line coach, told me after practice Monday that they even scheme the offense to make sure the five guys up front have a chance to succeed.
Still no Dwayne Bowe at camp. No one knows when he will arrive or even if he will come to St Joe. What we do know, is that there are 3 more days of the St Joe portion of camp. The next practice is Tuesday at 3:20
