The defense, which has been relentless with its pressure, appears to be ahead of the offense.
"They're doing a great job with the timing of their blitzes,'' Reid said. "That's so important, so important that you practice it. As hard as it is on the offense, that's OK. That pays off for you at a later time.''
The Chiefs have four practices next week beginning on Tuesday and conclude their offseason with a three-day mini-camp the first week of June.
Competition Fierce During Chiefs OTAs from The Mothership
"The offensive guys are trying to give me a little chatter on the sidelines over there and I love it," Flowers said.
"It keeps me energized for practice. I'm working the receivers, so both of us are getting practice on each side of the ball. At the end of the day, that's what it comes down to, we're competing out there; nobody's taking a play off, so, if I have to talk to raise my game out there, that's what I'll do."
Abdullah pounded his hands in frustration at not making the interception. After spending a year away from football while on a religious pilgrimage, Abdullah knows every play counts in his NFL comeback, so he had to be satisfied with merely breaking up the pass.
"To get back out here and to have a second chance, not a lot of people get one," Abdullah said after one of the Chiefs' offseason workout sessions this week. "So this is a blessing."
Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid: "We're Improving" from The Mothership
One of the many bright spots Thursday was the play of Chiefs DE
Tyson Jackson, who had a couple pass deflections and a sack before practice ended.
Coach Reid wasn't surprised by Jackson's play.
"I've been very impressed with Tyson," coach Reid said. "Very, very impressed throughout this whole camp, since we've been together here. Not many guys are going to outwork him on the field. Pass rush was not his forte. He's working like crazy on it, to get better. As a coach, that's all you ask for. You saw what he did today. Now again, this isn't live. The offensive line, they're trying to control it. Both sides are trying to control it and work it. He did a nice job. He's a big man that can move a little bit. It's very impressive."
Kansas City Chiefs Sign Safety Sanders Commings from The Mothership
"What you see with Sanders is a big, physical press corner (and) safety, he's done both at Georgia last year and this year - he had two games this year where he played the safety spot," coach Reid said.
"He fits in to what we do in both spots, he's a 4.4 40-yard dash guy, so he has size and speed at 216 pounds in that area that can move. He can help us in a couple of different spots, both at the corner and the safety spot."
It's tempting to take the over. I think we can all agree the Chiefs have better talent than their 2-14 record from last season. I think we probably agree that the Chiefs will get better coaching from Andy Reid and his staff than they did from Romeo Crennel and his. I think we agree the Chiefs will get better quarterback play from Alex Smith than they did from either Matt Cassel or Brady Quinn. I think we agree the first month of their schedule is conducive to getting off to a relatively fast start.
So what's holding us back from taking the over?

Catapano also hurt his hamstring, Reid said. Thorpe tweaked a knee.
Reid also revealed that tight end Tony Moeaki, who had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in the offseason, probably won't be on the field until training camp.

AFC West Draft: Chiefs Pro Bowl Connection from The San Diego Union-Tribune
No disrespect to the mighty Chippewas of Central Michigan, whose alums include 49ers Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Staley, but the hole in Fisher's resume is his scant experience against top talent. Yary, Pace and Long, for what it's worth, played for powerhouses USC, Ohio State and Michigan.
