Chiefs Practice Report – January 2

From the Truman Sports Complex

On Thursday, the practice situation remained the same for the Chiefs as they went through their final full practice in preparation for Saturday’s AFC wildcard round game against Indianapolis.

RT Eric Fisher was on the practice field, but was not participating in the work. Fisher suffered a groin injury near the end of Tuesday’s practice and has not worked since. It would appear very unlikely that he’ll play on Saturday.

OLB Tamba Hali was not taking part in Thursday’s practice and was not on the field during the open-media portion of the workout. Hali has been battling swelling in his knee since December 22 when the Chiefs and Colts played at Arrowhead Stadium.

Everyone else appeared to be taking part in the work on Thursday and was able to go in Indianapolis.

    Fisher injured again. This is it for the year. Traditionally OL play un-noticed and un- heralded for years, many around 10 years. Fisher is disappointing in his first year. Hope he gets a lot tougher next year, since it seems he will not be participating in the playoffs.

    As to Fisher being out and his rookie year, it speaks to the challenges and stamina to play well in your Freshman season. No one is talking about Luke Joeckel but he failed to make it this far. Let’s not condemn Fisher too soon as he will have learned a bunch thus far and will benefit from the experience BUT if he continues on his current path in 2014? Not good.

    Now, onto another unrelated, sort of, issue as it relates to the coaching changes fires/hires in the NFL. Most pundits say the old change the dynamic from tough guy/player’s guy, offensive guy/defensive guy, coaching hires is what is happening in most places. It seems to be true.

    In the Chiefs realm, I think it was a choice of disaster/competent for Clark Hunt. He HAD to go with proven qualities given his then recent past of going with ‘flavor of the moments’ selections. He was smart enough to know that and I give him credit for having seen the error of his past ways.

    For the first time in a long time, I think the Chiefs are back on track and will consistently be a factor in the NFL going forward and that’s said regardless of where the team ends up for the 2013 campaign. That’s something I couldn’t say since the days of Marty so, THAT is saying something. I’m out.

    I agree with RW that we now for the first time in a long time have great coaches and a great GM. The combo package of Dorsey, Reid, Sutton, Toub, and I’ll even throw in Pederson is first class all the way.

    Everytime we had great coaches in the past,we had great teams.With the combination of coaches we have now,i think i can safely say we are in store for years of good to great football.I have been a Chiefs fan seen 63 and i believe this is as good of head coach and General manager together as we have ever had.
