Andy Reid: “Chiefs can’t be without Patrick Mahomes in preseason”

cam spotlight presented by progressive insurance let’s start in kansas city the chiefs taking on the vikings friday at 8 pm eastern right here on nfl network head coach andy reed asked if he was planning to play quarterback patrick mahomes in the preseason finale yeah we’ll see we’ll see how it goes he got quite a few snap 33 snaps or so last game so that was a long first half now for you know so i wasn’t anticipating 45 plays um but that’s okay we need the work and and he got good working i think it’s good for pat but i also think it’s good for the offensive line and pat to see kind of how that how that’s going to work and and get a feel for him for them to get a feel for him and likewise so and we’ve got some young guys that that’s why i left them in with chad so that they could get a little bit more extended work there and really all five of you know we’ve got two veterans on the left side i mean all five of them are new so we need to you need to play and that um you know this gives us that opportunity a little insight there from a super bowl winning head coach coach andy reid saying that he’ll give patreon homes in his starters reps in their final preseason game so it’s always fascinating and difficult to go through how these coaches have to make these decisions about how teams should approach preseason snaps and work uh out there there’s a very risk versus reward feel to it so some teams have their starting quarterbacks securely on their butt bubble wrap on the sidelines true contenders like the chiefs somehow still giving their starters like patrick mahomes reps how do you feel about how teams are approaching uh this in their final preseason game now that there’s only three yeah well typically in this situation i would say sit pat my homes but you know you have patrick my homes you have three pieces of game instead of four so you’re trying to get as much work as you can in there and patrick mahomes he looks good he’s moving around well we all know he had that turf towing off season that foot surgery but he needs to be out there with his offensive line as much as someone say well health is wealthy you have to protect your investment you’re paying them half a billion dollars so why are you putting them out there he needs to see what it feels like with five new guys in front of them the five new guys in front of him needs to feel blocking for an extended amount of time knowing that patrick holmes can extend plays so that way it’s not a shock when you get into that first preseason game you know i wanted to come in and say well listen i i’d rather not see him seeing patrick holmes in the last preseason game is like seeing giannis santa tucumbo in the summer league sure but you know they’re two different guys you know you have one guy who’s a greek freak and one guy who’s the cheese freak and i feel like patrick mahomes right now he needs as much reps as he can because the last time we saw him running around was with that tampa bay buccaneers defense destroying their offensive line so if he can get out there and get a few rips and a few reps in that third pre-season game they’ll be perfectly fine it’s a matter of philosophy right so justin herbert has a whole new offensive line also he’s got corey linsley a new center he’s got rashaan slater he won’t touch the field brandon staley was like we’re not putting herbert out in pre-season he’s just a second-year guy yeah i would imagine muhammad’s a little more experienced a little more comfortable with the chief’s offense than herbert would be with the charter’s office but that’s philosophy jared goff never played under mcveigh in these preseason games they just put him on like what’s the point we’re not going to do scrimmages every day we practice i i find it really interesting the different philosophies because andy reid is a super bowl winning head coach like you said and he’s no fool he’s no dummy and yeah he wants to see mahomes get 33 snaps in a second preseason game like what’s to gain from that but his thing is new offensive line let’s get comfort might as well take it it’s might as well have it um daniel jones hasn’t taken a snap all summer for the new york giants so much pressure on him i think he’s going to play the first half this week in the season finale when they play the patriots i think that’s the feel out of new york that we are going to see daniel jones and i think those snaps do matter i am with you on that nate i feel like it almost is a momentum thing if daniel jones can come in and operate two really good drives not only does it catapult him and his confidence with that offensive line and that offense and some of these new weapons they have but it also can have the giants fans feeling like okay that was a glimpse we know we’ve got something good here we got something good here i don’t think he’s going to fall on his face in a pre-season game i like it to see them get a little bit but herbert i don’t think burrow’s going to play much if he plays at all and you know you see stafford out in l.a he’s not football hey everyone and welcome to good morning football we’re presented by progressive insurance live in new york city whether you’re watching here in the states across the pond on site sky sports in the uk we welcome you to our breakfast table here at the end of august that’s right preseason week three is just ahead of us we wrapped up preseason week two action to last night so we’ll get you guys some highlights my name is kay nate burleson peter schrager kyle brent all here and it’s time for the lead block time for the lead block i like the fact and amanda we have fireworks in new orleans last night this is a really fun pre-season game we’re gonna get to the jameis show in just a second first trevor lawrence out there number one overall pick and man did he get hit a lot early boom down in the end zone bam could have been flagged on that one just hit after hit after hit he showed toughness last night that he show any game though on the sideline talking it over gardner minshew’s there the urban meyer showing out second and seven he’s going to step up and bam marvin jones jr we’ve been watching him for years a reliable veteran target exactly what you want later in the drive though this is a little bit wild third and eight peter what did you think of this this was look just go down oh you’re taking heavy contact yesterday for doing it and then be like well that’s really smart of trevor yeah he said afterwards third down to fourth down you got to go for it i don’t know third and four hey he’s got a new tire this is luke farrell rookie from ohio state he was justin fields tight end fifth round guy huge tight end so trevor lawrence gets them going four plays later though same old story that’s the third and ten you want to get points before the half and bam and they got him again check out urban meyer on the sideline he says look sometimes with a star quarterback it’s a tough transition from college to the pros you want to know exhibit a of that well it’s coming up right now oh man here we go fleur de lis on the helmet and the comet through the sky watch this laser a shot downfield look at the catch girl listen go how about this my man marquez was bawling and these balls beautifully thrown i said a while ago this offense could be a little bit more explosive than james it did look like breeze 2011. it really did that was callaway whose name was mentioned many times on the show yesterday which i think we will get to and by the way this is not a glitch in the matrix he goes to him again and he makes it one-handed look at the reverse angle of this this is an insane catch a throw is perfect and wow save it for the regular season two touchdowns lightning strikes twice in new orleans mark has calloway undrafted this is a jameis number one overall pick this hurry up michael jordan i know right all right now tayson’s like oh man what the hell am i supposed to do well taysom took some penalties he took uh some incompletions then he goes little jordan i’m playing basketball that’s a little penny little jordan humphrey his real name lil apostrophe jordan and speaking of jordans there’s cam just talking to james be like dude you got this thing week one are you ready we got to go to battle you and me we got to win a super bowl together 23 21 final score but look at taysom hill 11 of 20. we don’t even have james’s stats on there yes it is not bottom right corner nine to 10 for 123 and two see that minshew though yeah minchi was good um sean payton was asked what’s going on with the quarterback sean do you have a time frame just naming a starter yeah i don’t have a time frame though i’ll give you like when we we know what direction we’re going we’ll we’ll let you guys know and we’re not gonna you know try to anticipate saying hey it’s going to be mid-week or next week uh yeah i mean that’s i think the best way for us to handle it and it’s kind of how we’ve always handled something like this um but but i was pleased with not just the quarterbacks i was pleased with how we played as a team for the most part and so as i coach appreciate the time of course at the podium after the game he’s keeping it close to
