It’s a known fact that Chiefs fans will be clamoring for a Schwartz brother reunion in Kansas City until it either happens or both of them are retired. Geoff was in Kansas City in 2013 while Mitch was signed this offseason so they missed each other by a couple of years.
Geoff is promoting their new book, Eat My Schwartz, and joined The Drive with Danny Parkins on 610 Sports to talk about the book and of course some Chiefs.
Geoff did address the question that some of us have wondered: What are the chances he’s going to come back to KC and give us an All-Schwartz side of the line?
“My brother seems to be very positive about the Chiefs guard situation,” Geoff told Danny (listen to the audio here). “I know you have a couple young guys in there (at guard). At some point you have to let the young guys play. We’ll see what happens with injuries and what not.
“I’d love to come back. I haven’t really heard anything on Kansas City. It’s just the situation I’m in. I just have to wait for some phone calls to come in. I know I can still play. I’d love to come back and play with Mitch but you guys have a good line. Guys are getting better, they’re improving. I know my brother is excited for the season. It’s the first time he’s been on a team with a chance to win in his career so he’s really excited about that.”
Right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has had a good preseason and the Chiefs are invested in him. Left guard Parker Ehinger is the rookie who, as Geoff suggested, will take his lumps as a rookie.
“When you all play the Chargers this weekend, just see how (Ehinger) bounces back from a bad play ... if they didn’t think he could do it, they wouldn’t put him in there.”
If they didn’t think they could do it or if they were worried about it, they probably would’ve checked in on a veteran free agent guard ... like Geoff. Injuries do happen. We know that. There’s a reason most teams keep eight linemen and only five play. I don’t know that it will be in Kansas City because the Chiefs seem to like their depth in Zach Fulton and Jah Reid but here’s to hoping Geoff finds a good situation. Easy guy to root for.
