Cardinals vs Chiefs Expectations

The Kansas City Chiefs are playing their first preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals. You should expect the Chiefs to play their starters for 2 series. I don’t expect big things, for the starters,  on either side of the ball.  The Chiefs want to get through this game without any injuries especially to the starters.  On offense I want to see how the timing is between Matt Cassell and the receivers especially Jon Baldwin.  For the starters on defense I want to see them play with intensity and not allow any points.

After the first quarter the back-ups will be playing for the rest of the game.  During this part I mainly watch the rookies and see how they are adjusting to the NFL.  The rookie I am most excited to see play is Dontari Poe.  My expectations for him this game is not that high because it is his first game as a pro. However, I hope to see him flash his potential.  Even though Dontari is the main rookie I am watching there is a myriad of other rookies that I will keep my eye on.  I am especially interested to see the rookie wide receivers play.  The rookie wide receivers that I will keep my eye on are Devon Wylie, Josh Bellamy, and Junior Hemingway.  I am not sure whether Junior will be playing tonight due to Injury.

The last two players I will be watching is Brady Quinn and Ricky Stanzi.  Brady and Ricky are in the middle of a quarterback battle fighting to become the back up.  I am more excited to see Ricky Stanzi play then Brady because I want to see if Ricky has made any progress following last season.
