It’s Chiefs game day!

I got together with Joel and went through each position on the Chiefs roster with what we expect in Friday’s preseason opener against the 49ers. Listen to it in the player above or click here. A timeline of our convo below...

0:53 – Pete asks Joel what he’s most exciting about and you already know the answer.

1:49 – Quarterbacks: The guys get into a deeper conversation about what happens with the No. 2 quarterback position.

6:22 – Running backs: Could Kareem Hunt work his way into the primary Chiefs running back position? What about the returning backs? CJ Spiller?

11:00 – Wide receivers: Who are the locks at the wide receiver position to make the Chiefs? Who could be a surprise cut? When will we see Patrick Mahomes to Tyreek Hill in an in-game situation?

17:15 – Tight ends: Will Travis Kelce even play? What should we be looking forward to in the other tight ends?

19:50 – Offensive linemen: Some quick points about the left guard position.

23:34 – Defensive linemen: Will Bennie Logan even play? What does his backup Roy Miller eat for breakfast?

26:35 – Outside linebackers: Is this the first time we’ll see Dee Ford and Justin Houston completely healthy?

28:50 – Inside linebackers: Exactly many Chiefs are competing for the spot next to Derrick Johnson? What are the chances of Josh Mauga regaining a starting role at the age of 30?

30:55 – The secondary: Where is the weakest spot in the Chiefs secondary? Is Phillip Gaines reliable? What will we see from Steve Nelson?
