Chiefs' Jalil Brown Was Picked On By The Seahawks

With Julio Jones and Roddy White two weeks away, the Kansas City Chiefs have themselves a problem. Jalil Brown was consistently picked up in last night's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Five of Russell Wilson's first six completions went to Brown. It's not clear if that was by design but it's obvious the Seahawks found their sweet spot and it was whoever Jalil Brown was covering.

By the end of the first quarter, Chiefs fans were way too familiar with Brown.

In a preseason game, this is annoying. In a regular season game, it simply can not happen. The Chiefs can not allow one player to be such a liability.

The Jalil Brown breakdown after the jump...

1st and 10, SEA 41: (12:54) 3-R.Wilson pass short right to 18-S.Rice to SEA 49 for 8 yards (30-J.Brown).

That's Brown going low, right behind Sidney Rice. Brown was playing off of him slightly and couldn't get back in time to break up the pass. The ball went high and Brown went low. An easy completion for the Seahawks. That's putting the ball in the right place. Brown had no shot.

2nd and 8, KC 45 (10:29) (Shotgun) 3-R.Wilson pass short right to 81-G.Tate to KC 31 for 14 yards (30-J.Brown; 29-E.Berry).

Same side of the field. Similar route, but a little farther down the field. Brown is too far behind Golden Tate to make a play on the ball.

3rd and 3, KC 24 (9:03) (Shotgun) 3-R.Wilson pass short right to 14-C.Martin to KC 20 for 4 yards (30-J.Brown).

Third down. The ball is in KC territory. This is a big play. Something called a Charly Martin was able to get open for a four-yard pass on Brown. Again, he's several steps behind the ball.

2nd and 3, SEA 27 (4:19) (Shotgun) 3-R.Wilson pass incomplete deep right to 18-S.Rice. PENALTY on KC-30-J.Brown, Defensive Pass Interference, 18 yards, enforced at SEA 27 - No Play.

Second and three so it's time to force a third down, right? Nope, it's time to get a defensive pass interference called. Look at Brown's right arm. He has the sidebar up, which will get called often. That's a first down and a big play -- 18 yards.

2nd and 4, KC 49 (3:33) 3-R.Wilson pass deep right to 17-B.Edwards to KC 17 for 32 yards (30-J.Brown).

This is Braylon Edwards basically saying he's bigger and more athletic. Brown is in good position here, right on the ball as it comes into Edwards' hands. Unfortunately, Edwards just yanks it away. 32 yard gain.

I'm not saying Brown needs to be cut or he's an awful player with no chance. It's his second season, his first full offseason. He will get better.

But the Chiefs need him to be better, like, right now. Atlanta is two weeks away. Julio Jones and Roddy White are significantly better than the Seahawks receivers. That game will actually count, too. The Falcons will be game planning for the Chiefs and when they turn on this tape they will see Wilson, a rookie quarterback, continually picking on Brown -- successfully, too.

There's still no update on Flowers' injury. He could be out one more day or one more month and it wouldn't surprise me. No one seems to know exactly what's going on but Flowers has missed enough time and we're getting close enough to the season opener that this is going to be an obvious concern for the Chiefs heading into Week 1 against the Falcons.

We're not the only ones who noticed Brown getting bullied by the Seahawks. He was a topic of conversation throughout the night.
