I have heard the QB play is night and day better than last year which is expected. Bray moved above Stanzi on the depth chart. T-Jax has been impressive thus far. Knile Davis is the top return man right now. Moeaki is out til TC at least too.
I think Kelce is going to be the starter pretty quickly, going to be a monster for us. So excited about this team behind Alex Smith.
Excited about Smith. Think he'll do much better than some people are thinking.
The defense has been the story so far. Sutton has this unit looking unstoppable. Now our offense has to take shape.
Sanders Commings got signed a couple days ago as well. Good to see we're getting rookies signed.

My sleeper to make #Chiefs roster is easily TE Demetrius Harris. Now that he's getting up to speed, freakish athletic ability is coming out//Nick Jacobs @Jacobs71
Demetrius Harris had a really good day today. Fantastic catch. Knows how to use his body to get separation & serious leaping ability.
Watching practice, Alex Smith just seems to have something other Chiefs QB's haven't had in a while...focus??? Attention to detail?

Let's go Chiefs guests, join the forum and discuss Chiefs football! Plenty to be excited about!
Chiefs like what they've seen so far from QB Alex Smith
"He's been everything that we thought he was,'' Nagy said of Smith. "He's a true professional. He's in his (playbook) every day. He's always asking questions, trying to get better. He's being a leader for the other QBs as well.'' "He's comfortable with what we're doing,'' Pederson said. "He's understanding the terminology, and he's orchestrating that at the line of scrimmage. We're really pleased with where he's at right now.'' "I'm with him every single day,'' Nagy said. "Just talking X's and O's and past experiences he's had, he brings some good things to our attention as a staff. He has a lot of valuable experience. He's been through a lot. Having those experiences and coming in here to a team with a new staff, it's been an awesome experience.''
Come on Chiefs fans. I see there is always a few guests, don't be afraid to join up!!!
http://www.arrowheadpride.com/2013/5...y-travis-kelceEach year, the offseason process brings in a crop of new rookies via the draft and free agency who must acclimate to life at the pro level. It's a learning curve that swallows everyone, from college All-American to role players, and the pressure comes in two parts -- the physical side and the mental side. Based on responses from Kansas City Chiefs rookies Tyler Bray and Travis Kelce, it's the mental part that's the bigger hurdle thus far.
Speaking at Chiefs practice on Thursday, both players noted the difficulties in picking up a new playbook, terminology and methods. Bray, an undrafted free agent quarterback who has a good chance to stick, says he's just soaking everything up even when he's not taking reps on the field.
Chiefs OTAs: Thursday
The Chiefs offense got rolling while Jonathan Baldwin got sick.
"The first couple days were a little different," Bray said. "You come in being the starter [in college] and have to sit there and take mental reps, kind of took me back to my freshman year."
Bray did say that the veterans on the roster like Alex Smith, Chase Daniel and Ricky Stanzi have taken him in and helped him make the transition a bit easier.
"They've helped out a lot," Bray said. "They're great guys. They know I'm going to come in and struggle at first with the playbook, it's a new system, a new type of offense. They've just helped out a lot."
Kelce, the first of the Chiefs' two third-round selections, agreed with Bray that the mental side is the most difficult adjustment.
"Oh, by far. By far," he said. "Don't get me wrong, everybody's out here working their tail off trying to get better, but at the same time, everyone's still learning all the schemes and plays and things like that. It's definitely been fun."
For Kelce, the adjustments will include learning multiple positions within head coach Andy Reid's offensive schemes. The former Cincinnati tight end is a valuable and versatile offensive weapon, but first he must learn where and when to be on the field.
" I believe they're going to ask all the tight ends and all the players on the team to play in every single spot," said Kelce. "That's the luxury of being in Coach Reid's offense, is that you know you're going to be put in a different matchup every single play. And we're going to utilize that in every single position."
While there's much to learn, Kelce is also realistic in his approach. It's a gauntlet every incoming player must go through if they are to be successful and it just takes the time and effort to get there.
"You can only expect so much," said Kelce. "It's been fun though. It's been adventurous. Just getting the entire offense down has been rough, but I'm coming around and I'm starting to get everything. So far so good."
I like what we have here, just 2 seasons ago the Chiefs were 7-9, so we have talent, plus these new guys. Looks exciting and I think we split with the Broncos. You see a Rams logo, but being from the middle of Missouri, I love my Rams and Chiefs!
^^^ Good to here.
Also, I'm stoked with all three QB's we have. I guessing Stanzi gets released to make room for Bray. I was hoping we would draft Bray, but getting him as a UDFA was huge.
I agree, though I believe he'll be a solid backup.
Bray has the arm to be more than just a backup. Has to work on a lot of the other things you want in a qb though.
