"Bulldog" Bob Fescoe is the host of Fescoe in the Morning, heard weekdays 6a-9a on 610 Sports Radio. The KU grad has been a voice in the Kansas City sports scene for the better part of the last decade and brings his passion to the table with some bite every weekday morning.
Day one is in the books in St. Joe and about only two thirds of the roster was present and accounted for on Friday afternoon.
The Chiefs held what they called a light practice but it went on for almost 3 hours. A ton of conditioning was done by all the players, who worked out in helmets and shoulder pads.
A lot of time was spent with the offense on one field and the defense on another. During these times the individual coaches worked with their position groups, including, but not limited to basic fundamentals and technique work. By the time the afternoon was over it looked like all guys were used to playing football again.
After talking with a few of the players after practice, you could tell just what a tough workout they had just done on the field. Guys were almost dead. It was intense. To a man, each guy said that no matter how much they worked in the off season, they were not quite ready for what they experienced this afternoon.
Eric Berry said that he had to get motivated by his family at times to work hard, but that he still expects to bring multiple Super Bowls to KC.
The one thing that really stood out, besides rookie Chris Harr blowing chunks four different times, was the addition of Jim Zorn as QB coach. It was nice to see a coach giving Cassel direction that was not seated in a rascal. It was also good to see a guy who was a former NFL qb teaching the QB’s. Zorn out coached everyone today. He was intense, he was deliberate and very informative. It seems on the surface the Chiefs are lucky to have him on their staff.
