Chiefs Workout Special Teamers

Heaven knows there must be some rhyme or reason to it, but the Chiefs worked out a kicker, punter and several long snappers on Tuesday.

Considering all the problems the team has with a 1-5 start, those three positions have been some of the most productive players on the team.

Is there a method in explaining what they are up too? It’s hard to conjure up reasons, other than just doing due diligence with the players on the street.

Here’s who came through the facility on Tuesday:

  • Kicker – Matt Szymanski (who was with the Chiefs in training camp).
  • Punter – Dan Sepulveda (formerly with Pittsburgh).
  • Long snapper – Bryce Davis (formerly with Cincinnati), Patrick Scales (formerly with Baltimore), Joe Zelenka (formerly with Atlanta.)

    In a perfect world, there would be a blue ribbon panel of longterm season ticket holders who would work out new candidates for ownership and similarly, new GM wannabes.

    I’ll even venture to say, I could write a good SNL type script to get a few comic relief laughs which are in short supply with the current regime. And my point? When you can’t run on your record, you detract attention away from it.

    How? Why, let’s work out some specialists to send a message to our base that we are doing something by God! Please.

    Nothing with this team surprises me. It’s incredibly disappointing to see a team like the Eagles fire their DC and we are looking for a new punter..nice work.

    Difference right there between a franchise that gets it and one that doesn’t.

    Bob; Who pays to bring these guys in??? On a different note: To Petey; We would NOT want Casstille. He was converted last year from offensive line coach to DC and failed miserably. Thats why he got canned.

    I think the Chiefs are putting together a package where they trade Colquit, Succop and Gafford for a real QB.

    It seems to me one time a failing team, (ATL?) who’s answer to a losing season was to fire the public announcer. Makes you smile but that was it, same GM, coaches, most players were in place the next year with the same results.

    Pioli is making the rounds today, I am betting he will say the season has not turned out as they hoped (you think?) but they are on the right path and will continue until the end of the year and “evaluate” everything after the season ends.

    Now if yo believe mch of what he says, I hava in my personal possession a bridge I am willing to part with at a bargain price. emial me.

    el cid-I think you nailed what Pioli will say. I still keep hearing changes are on the way, but obviously not this week or in the near future. Usually where there’s smoke there’s fire. I guess we will see.

    Working out a punter, kicker, and deep snapper? Talk about rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. R W – like the idea of fans working out GM candidates.

    Wow. That’s all. Just, “Wow.”

    Smoke and Mirrors. Hey, I can use some distractions. If you really want to take my mind off 1-5, lets bring in some new cheerleaders and try them out. Drumline guys too.

    Firing somebody, anybody, always is a distraction and can bring hope. I know, lets fire that giant racoon that performs before the game. I always thought that was the reason we can’t win at home. “Dump the Fat Racoon” is almost as catchy as “Fire Pioli”. More likely too.

    Sorry Chuck, I wasn’t very clear in my post. I was not suggesting we go out and get the former Eagles DC. What I was suggesting is that’s what a good franchise the middle of a disappointing year, they make changes. Us? We bring in a punter for a tryout, with our punter arguably being one of the best at his job in the NFL.

    interviews are over. well orchestrated by Chiefs. Pioli made his points. Sort of like Pres O and big R debates. Either way we lose.

    Well get ready to ride out the rest of season with just what we have so far. In fact, I suggest we will get the same next year and I say they will not draft a QB before the 4th round. Know what, Things are good at One Arrowhead Drive, get a clue.

    Be sure to renew your season tickets for more of the same. Scotty has it under control.

    My thought is that Scott will find that under performing concession stand operator. Maybe even find the parking lot attendant who keeps sneaking into the game without paying. Also the groundskeeper who keeps dropping the candy wrapper in the stairwell. Fire them at the end of the year, and there is more money in Clarks pocket, problem solved!

    yeah they may as well sign another punter cause they need two the way they’re playing. they can’t score touchdown or field goal so or they need is a punter. I bet you the only pro bowler from our beloved chiefs this year is Dustin colquitt.

  • October 17, 2012  - Johnfromwichita says:

    tuan, damn, you nailed that one. If ever a team needed two punters it’s these Chiefs. The season isn’t even half over and Colquitt may not last.

    Hate like hell to even say this but know what? As bad as it has been, and it could even get worse, they’re only two games out of first.
