Teicher:On first play at camp, Chiefs show their new look

On first play at camp, Chiefs show their new look
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star
Andy Reid delivered a not-so-subtle message Friday with the first play at Chiefs training camp. He had quarterback Alex Smith heave a pass deep down the middle that was hauled in for a touchdown by wide receiver Dexter McCluster.

The play served notice that after two seasons with a dormant passing attack, the Chiefs intend to revive it in a big way.

“I wasn’t ready for that,” Smith said. “I came up and I got a good look for it. Crowd pleaser.”

Much more needs to happen before the passing game can be called successful. But the intent is obviously there. Smith completed another deep pass to McCluster a few plays later.

As much as Reid enjoyed the big plays, he liked the consistency of the passing game. Smith, who completed 70 percent of his passes for the 49ers last season, went several plays into practice before throwing his first incompletion.

“There weren’t a lot of balls on the ground, and it looked like the defense had people covered,” Reid said. “They were in position.”

The trade for Smith was the biggest of the offseason moves aimed at revitalizing a sluggish offense. Smith, the first pick in the 2005 draft and San Francisco’s long-time starter, is used to such pressure.

“I’m much better equipped to handle it now,” Smith said. “When you’re a young guy and coming in and playing early, I dwelled on (negative things) too much. I let it affect my play too much. I tried to please everybody.

“I’m going to play my game. I’m going to try to work as hard as I can to get as good as I can and try to reach my potential and win a bunch of games. That’s the goal. I’m not worried about a bunch of other things.”

Smith received another peek at the expectations waiting for him at the end of practice, when a fan called to him asking Smith to be the Chiefs’ savior.

“That’s a strong word,” Smith said. “That’s a great example. When I was younger, I would have taken that literally. I tried to make every single throw and I tried to prove to everybody on every single play that, yeah, I could do this.”

That McCluster was on the receiving end of Smith’s long passes was another bonus for the Chiefs. They practiced without their most accomplished receiver, Dwayne Bowe, who is on the non-football injury list with a viral condition.

Bowe may return to practice as soon as Saturday. But no matter when he plays, the Chiefs are still in search of a consistent threat to go along with him. The diminutive McCluster has long tantalized the Chiefs with his big-play ability, but he has delivered precious few such plays since arriving as a rookie in 2010.

He bounced from receiver to running back and again to receiver, never seeming to find a comfortable spot. While it’s far too early to call him a changed player in Reid’s offense, it’s a start.

“It’s always good to start a first practice … with a big one,” McCluster said. “I’m happy I held on to the ball.”

Reid’s arrival could rescue McCluster’s career, which stalled last season under coach Romeo Crennel. Reid, then coaching the Philadelphia Eagles, was intrigued by McCluster when he was available in the 2010 draft.

The Chiefs got to him first, but Reid began making plans for McCluster shortly after arriving in Kansas City in January.

“He gives you a little flexibility,” Reid said. “You can move him around a Iittle. We’ll use him here and there.”

During offseason practice and again on Friday, McCluster lined up in a variety of spots.

“I don’t know where he couldn’t line up, to be honest, as far as skill positions go,” Smith said. “He’s got that many tools in the belt.”

Another offensive player the Chiefs are counting on is rookie running back Knile Davis. The Chiefs hope he can be turned into a kickoff return specialist, even though he never returned a kick during a game in college at Arkansas.

That process got off to a rough start Friday when Davis, who was a frequent fumbler in college, dropped a kickoff.

“We’ll get that fixed,” Reid said.

But, Back on topic, while I make me another drink. Its great that Alex Smith is being made to take chances. Hope he throws deep all preseason. hell hope he throws every down. He needs to courage, and know that if he sees it, and lets it rip, and gives his guys a chance, some times, good things can happen. No more pussy footing Alex Smith. No EXCUSES, RULE NUMBER 137, PLAY LIKE A CHAMPION.

While I have to say I dont feel like I get treated badly except by a few I clash with, I probably have gone off the deep end over the last 6 months or so dealing with all the negativity.

This place is a cesspool of ****ing whiny bitches and I am getting drawn into the same shit and acting the same way on the other end.

I am actually a very happy positive person and would prefer to be that way, its hard to be that way here when every single thing that happens Chiefs related becomes a negative to 90% of this place. And yes, that is whats going on here.

I am going to do my very best to not get drawn into any more football debate over the same shit that keeps getting rehashed here over and over and wait and see what happens when we actually start playing football.

Color me skeptical.
Yep.

We win training camp every year.

(These are legitimate questions; I have a terrible memory)
No he never broke 500 yds. He did have 2 season over 400yds. In 2003 he had 40 rec for 423 yds and 3TDs. He had 6 catches over 20 yards and one over 40 that went for 67 and a TD. In 2005 he had 36 recs for 436 yds and 3TDs. He had 5 catches over 20 yards and 2 over 40.

As far as numbers of receptions last year Kevin Walter, Vernon Davis, Joel Dreesen, Santana Moss, Darius Heyward-Bey, Anthony Fasano all had 41 receptions last year. Those are #1 TEs and #2 WRs so I would say his numbers for being the 3rd or 4th receiving option were pretty impressive.
