The Kansas City Chiefs broke out the pads for practice #5 of Training Camp. Despite the defense now being able to hit, it was Alex Smith who stood out above everyone else with a very solid day.
The Kansas City Chiefs came back out onto the practice field, despite the rain, for Day Five of Training Camp. Today marked the first day of pads and contact in practice, which means linemen, linebackers, and running backs were finally going to get their shot at laying out some punishment and making their marks.
However, today belonged to Alex Smith. The Chiefs starting quarterback put on an impressive display of passing today as he was nearly perfect throughout practice. The veteran signal caller also showed that he has developed his timing and trust with his young receivers, putting up several impressive throws throughout practice.
That’s what the Chiefs will need from Smith this year as they start their conquest for a Super Bowl. If the passing offense can build off of last year’s improvement, they can become a strong counter-balance to the already tough running game.
The Kansas City Chiefs have a very young wide receiver corps, and will ask a lot of them. So far the receivers have been up to the task in Training Camp…that did not change today when the pads came on.
