The Kansas City Chiefs got pretty lucky this year. The weather for training camp has been terrific. It’s starting to jump back up to the high 80s and low 90s this week but for much of camp the weather was great. And by great weather, I mean not scorching hot, which it usually is this time of year.
“This crew here, not that the other crews didn’t, but they hit it where the weather wasn’t too bad so we were outside every day,” Reid said. “Therefore you have an opportunity to get learning out there, they’re not battling the elements, the heat and the humidity and all of that where you get where you’re talking to yourself instead of concentrating on the play. We’ve been able to take it up a notch. They’ve taken that challenge to heart and this group never says anything, they just work. From a head coaching standpoint that’s a beautiful thing. You can get a whole lot done.”
Alex Smith called this the best training camp they’ve had in the five years he’s been here. That’s probably true because more and more players already know Andy Reid and the system he runs so it makes sense you can build off of what you’ve already put in.
The Chiefs unfortunately had to move inside on the final day of camp practice on Wednesday due to rain but outside of that it’s been an excellent month for watching football outside.
