As they say on the set of any good movie, or bad movie really, “That’s a wrap” and that was the cry from the Chiefs today as they ended their 3 week long stay at training camp in St Joseph.
Over the past 3 weeks the Chiefs accomplished a lot. Head coach Romeo Crennel said on Thursday that “overall, camp has been good.”
After thinking back over the past few weeks, a few things stood out. First, we learned that a good head coach can make all the difference in the world, not just on the field but off the field. Crennel commands respect every step of the way and numerous players said during camp, they don’t want to let their coach down. That never happened in the past. This team is Matt Cassel’s team. Every player on offense has the utmost respect for the quarterback. All Chiefs fans may not like him, but Cassel has the backing of his teammates and coaches.
Dexter McCluster could be a playmaker. No, this is not a repeat from the past 2 seasons. This year I think Daboll is going to try to use him the right way, as a slot receiver. If they can get production out of him, this offense could be scary good.
Dwayne Bowe never did show up to camp. I don’t think anyone really expected him to be here. The team knows he will eventually show up. When, well, we still don’t have an answer to that question.
Brandon Flowers might as well not have shown up. He was injured early in camp and sat out almost all 3 weeks. He has an injured heel and is progressing slowly.
The Chiefs will head to KC tonight and then to St. Louis tomorrow afternoon in preparation for the Governor’s Cup showdown with St. Louis. Coach Crennel says the Governor’s Cup is “something we can get excited about.” If he is excited about it, then everyone in KC should be excited about bringing the trophy back to the right side of the state, a place it has not resided since 2008.
