We're now just over 24 hours away from the first-official preseason game of the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs.
The current book being written by the new Chiefs regime begins a new chapter when head coach Andy Reid, general manager John Dorsey and the rest of the team's coaches and players take the field at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome tomorrow night against the New Orleans Saints.
The last seven months have flown by, almost as fast as an Andy Reid-led practice, quick, beneficial and filled with purpose, leading us to tomorrow night's game at 7:00 PM CDT, which can't come soon enough, especially for the players.
"It will be nice to hit other people," Chiefs QB
One of Smith's targets, Chiefs WR
"It’s a great feeling to actually go against some different defensive backs, who aren’t going to know what to expect," Baldwin said. "We’re going to attack."
The Chiefs offensive line knows its responsibilities and will enjoy fulfilling its run and pass blocking duties even more on Friday, against guys not already on their team.
"We need to hit somebody else," Chiefs OL
One such player looking to showcase his abilities is Chiefs LB
"There’s going to be a lot of pent-up frustration released, being able to hit somebody else, instead of the same guys every day," Kilgore said with a smile.
"It will be nice to be able to hit some new faces; just going out there and playing fast and physical."
"It’s exciting to get to hit another opponent," Bailey admitted. "We’ve been going the last couple weeks against the same teammates, so it’ll be good to see a different colored jersey and hit somebody else."
As excited as the Chiefs are to play against an opponent not dressed in their uniform, I think it's safe to say that everyone in the Chiefs Kingdom is more than ready to watch their favorite team do so as well.
