The Kansas City Chiefs offensive line battle doesn’t seem like much of a battle. The team has kept mostly the same offensive line over the past three weeks.
“Yeah, I think I feel pretty good about it,” Andy Reid said of his offensive line, via quotes from the Chiefs. “Again, let’s see them hit and bang it around a little bit, see how they do in games. But I think we have a nucleus there that’s good.”
That would be LT Eric Fisher, LG Parker Ehinger, C Mitch Morse, RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, RT Mitch Schwartz.
That means rookie Parker Ehinger appears to be leading at left guard. Early on, Zach Fulton was there. Emphasis on leading, not already won.
“I’d even stretch it right into the two-deep,” Reid continued, “I’m feeling pretty good about that. And then we’ll see about the other guys as we go.”
Holy crap, when was the last time the Chiefs weren’t changing the offensive line around? It feels like there’s always something undecided on the line. And now Reid likes the backups too? These are strange times we’re living in.
For real though, let’s get the pads on. Andy Reid is an o-line expert so I do trust that he can tell a good o-lineman from a bad one but let’s see how they do when they can actually hit each other.
