Preseason 2013 - Week 2: Thoughts after rewatching the game...

Sorry for the delay....Couldn't get to a computer until today.

1) Kaep: Always start with Kaep. Hardly anything to say because his stint was so brief. I liked seeing him downfield trying to get in a block on Franks long run.

2) Backup QB: Yikes. Colt and Tolzien both looked bad again. The diff for me tho is that Colt is still learning the O and Tolzien looks this bad after 2.5 years in the offense. BJ Daniel...hrmm. Interesting. Very small sample against guys who won't even make the woeful Chiefs, but still impressive. Big arm and mobile. Good scout team for games against the 'hawks. I want to see more of him. I say it'll be Kaep>McCoy>Daniels.

3) AJ Jenkins: Going into this last game there was still a part of me that thought he'd prove everyone wrong. He'd "get it" finally and he's be able to turn those jets loose. I defended him in last weeks Thoughts after Rewatching the Game. I lost all hope watching him Friday Night. he just couldn't break free from press coverage. If he can't do that in KC, how the hell is he gonna do that in Seattle. His confidense is shot. He work ethic is questionable. The issue here is no longer can he be a starting player. The issue now is can he be a player at all. I'm sorry...but I was pretty much about to write the guy off...

4) Jonathan Baldwin: ...and then I saw the trade on twitter this morning. Initially here, I really like the trade. It isn't because I think Baldwin will come in and be a world beater and justify his draft position. It's because I'd take the production he's already had over Jenkins. Baldwin had his issues in KC on a really bad team with no QB. Jenkins had everything in the world going for him and Baldwin was STILL far more productive. I read the Chiefs comments about him being worthless and all I can think is "man, you don't know the meaning of the word". If nothing else, I think Baldwin can contribute if he is needed. Jenkins couldn't even get on the field.

5) Pass Rush: Wow. Either the Chiefs starters really suck or the Niners have themselves some depth in the front 7. The truth is probably a little of both. The second string D hung with the starters through the entire 1st half. KC QBs were under pressure all night. Nice to see. Lemonier and Haralson looked good in particular. Also like what I'm seeing from Dorsey as a run stuffer.

6) Frank: Frank is just fine thank you. If he's healthy, another fine year for #21.

7) Parrish Cox: Another solid game from Parrish. Nice. Playing with confidense, playing downhill, reacting quickly....looking good out there.

8) Nnamdi Asomugha: Also looking good. The guy just looks like a spider out there with those LONG arms and legs. Deep speed hasn't really been tested, but he's damn good in press coverage.

9) Dawson: Yeah...not worried at all about that guy. LOL. He missed that one last week but was nailing them from long distance this week.

10) Alex Smith: Poor KC. I have always liked Alex and have defended him on this forum for years. I don't want what I'm about to say to come of as Alex-bashing because I don't want that conversation. I have been one of those guys coming to his defense for years.

Having said that tho, I have always recognized his weaknesses. the problem I see in KC is that they are trying to make him something he's not. He is never going to be a vertical passer. The trade for Jenkins is just another example to me...looking for speed over size. Alex is the same guy he's always been...king of the 8 yard pass. If they understand who he is, they can have success with him. I just don't see that tho....I see Reid getting faster WRs to hit deep...a pass Alex has NEVER been able to complete.

I actually hope I'm wrong on this one. I hope Alex plays well. I want that second round pick.

I predict a QB controversy will spark in KC...in week 8!

I'm loving the way our D looks was a whole. Looks like a well oiled machine in week 2 of the preseason. Maybe getting torched in the playoffs has brought new enthusiasm. But if we can sustain that, we should be in good position for a run for 6.
loved the way our second and third stringers made Alex look like a second and third stringer. lol

looked more like a benny hill skit
Somehow I am not at all surprised to see no mention of Kaep overthrowing a wide open WR in the EZ.. and then to see "a once great defender of Alex" take the usual jabs at him. Well done, Marv. Enjoyed it anyway.

are the feels hurt ?
Thanks Marv,

Good post as usual.

To add a little; I really like what Wilhoit [sp?] is doing. I have a lot more confidence knowing he can spell both inside guys for a little rest.

Ian has earned his spot - playing very well and I'm also happy with Dorsey.

I've been very critical of Dobbs and Tuk in the past. Dobbs has really been on fire, I hope he can keep it up.

Reid looks legit. Totally agree on Cox and I'd prefer seeing him handle KO & punts.

Hall keeps getting open and seems to have pretty good hands.

With the right coaching that Lemonier can be very special.

I think the trade was a good move. AJ couldn't seem to produce and we got someone who has a better chance of contributing. I don't know if he will be at least there's a possibility.

Dude...seriously? He's 5 for 6 in the Preseason. He's played 2 drives and they scored on both. LOL.

MUCH bigger fish to fry.
Who is Parrish Cox?
Nice post. Ready to get thru preseason and on to regular season now. Also love the trade rite now.

I think Kap just mistook Chad for VD and threw the pass accordingly.

oops
Thanks Marvin, I know I'm in the minority but Tolzien showed a little something. If he gets no playing time the next few weeks he's gone. I've been touting Cox as someone to watch, could be a star. LMJ losing some shine.
