Wow, what a turn out of fans for the Chiefs Family Fun Day! This is the third training camp held in St. Joe, the third I've attended, and I can't remember the crowds ever being so large. Obviously, optimism is high for this year's team and I would say with the talent level, expectations are high as well. Either way, I'd like to send a huge shout out to fans who've braved the heat and made the trip to St. Joe to support the team. From tweets I've seen, I believe the players really appreciate it too.
Anyway, on to the pics!
Wide Receiver - Jeremy Horne (my apologies, I can't make out the defender)
Devon "Jackrabbit" Wylie fielding a kickoff.
Big Dontari Poe manhandling an offensive lineman. It's hard to tell who he's mugging here, but I think it's Luke Patterson. Prior to this pic he stopped Peyton Hillis twice for little to no gain. I'm hoping by week 8 of the season the light has really come on for him and he's making some big plays for the Chiefs D.
Dexter McCluster with a touchdown catch on Eric Berry. It's hard to say what role Dex is going to play for this team, but I will say he's constantly creating separation and scoring TD's in red zone situations.
Inside linebackers Derrick Johnson and Javon Belcher catching a breather.
Matt Cassel just gets the ball out before Tamba eats his lunch. If he had been wearing a blue 18 jersey, I'm pretty certain Tamba would have killed him.
Chandler Fenner with the coverage on Jeremy Horne - incomplete.
Travis Daniels in DB drills.
Rookie DB, DeQuan Menzie, showing off his levitation skills.
Rookie DB, Dominique Ellis.
Jalil Brown with the coverage on Jon Baldwin - incomplete.
Donald Stephenson is a big, big man.
Jon Baldwin for the touchdown!
Javier Arenas fielding a kickoff.
For the ladies and the die-hard, true blooded 'mericans, here's your token Ricky Stanzi "Sunshine" shot for the day.
Rookie running back, Cyrus Gray, gets loose for a nice gain.
Matt Cassel to Shaun Draughn.
Jerrell Powe trying to get a paw on a Brady Quinn pass that went for a touchdown. Later I overheard Brady telling Jerrell he should have drank his EAS Myoplex.
And with that, "now I'm done." Hope you enjoy. GO CHIEFS!!!
