Chiefs LB Studebaker Again Credits Vrabel For Teaching Him

Almost three weeks ago against the Oakland Raiders,  LB Andy Studebaker became a lot  more important to the Kansas City Chiefs.  With about a little over eight minutes to go in the third quarter, starting OLB Mike Vrabel went down with a knee injury causing Studebaker to quickly become a major part of the defense.

After that game, Studebaker credited Vrabel with "talking me through situations, helping me out, making sure I was on the top of my game."

In an interview the Pantagraph, a Bloomington, IL area newspaper, Studebaker again sung Vrabel's praises for taking the time to help him out.

"He definitely does not have to do that," Studebaker said. "I was really impressed that a guy who has won three Super Bowl rings would make time for a second-year player and teach him the ropes."

Vrabel "coached me up", Studebaker said.  I think this is the behind-the-scenes stuff we don't see that made Haley and the coaches excited to land Vrabel. Words like "leader"  and "professional" are often associated with Vrabel and I think this is an example of why.

Studebaker said that Vrabel, along with head coach Todd Haley, that any praise for his two interception performance two weeks ago is "not a license to relax."

This weekend, Vrabel could return to the lineup which would put an end to Studebaker the starter. and a return to Studebaker the special teamer.

"You will not hear any complaints from this corner."
