We were joined by Matt Conner, site expert of Arrowhead Addict, who had some interesting things to say about outside views of the Niners, as well as what’s going on in Kansas City.
From the outside looking in, the overall talent pool just looks so depleted—not just in the starting ranks on both sides but in terms of depth needed to endure the attrition of an NFL season.
To shore up the run defense meant getting rid of a spent Dontari Poe and adding Bennie Logan from the Eagles.
Injuries depleted the front seven in significant ways last year, but the Chiefs look healthier (knock on wood) than they have heading into a season in a long time.
Everyone is playing their given parts: Alex, the ever-professional veteran starter; Mahomes, the respectful, humble rookie; Andy Reid, the above board leader who gives only coach-speak.
