Friday morning we haven't talked image for awhile but it it has been a few days. But they told us that went by Playboy density team sport. After a week off the chiefs getting ready for a road game on Sunday visiting the New York Giants and it's time for a weekly chat with Mitch holds us. Play by play voice that she is good morning match. Good morning. Theodore good morning. Good morning the American Express it that make this possible Gregory known you know that the treaty cardinal. I can about those gals and guys there but they're they're awesome and what they do. In the that you direct current lending but a lot of folks that are persona double income payments and what you talk and work and now and have a place in the country they work with them as well. Into a check about Agilent dot com. And a lot of people that are directly involved in agriculture listen to the segment direct I'm surprised how many analyst at this segment. It's really trustees and but as you know artists belong there are better here. Arc and true. Here we are after a bye week the chiefs getting edit visiting the New York Giants the chiefs have never particularly played very well in the meadowlands against either New York team but. The chiefs have never won a road game against the giants ever. Pamper this system and history of modern civilization. Maybe somewhere in the Inca empire the chiefs but they haven't done it. At least since we've been a country that's an amazing stat actually ducked that one out. Earlier this week on really and it's one of those over a couple of real. It's the old. We're seeing. There's 32 teams in the NFL vs chiefs don't play themselves on the road. So this is the only team only franchise. To the barber when you're on the road. So our workers and it's our. That's time to get that done on Sunday and get that out of the record books as of what is the medical chart look like is some of these guys healed up yet. Mentally night. Great questions Steve because you would think after the bar that would generally you are the paper well not so much my friend Lee Corso would say. As you would put on the shocker head in the pocketbook. It isn't it appeal. We got or that are of concern. The long term injuries before with a back injury. And this is going on now almost a month and I'm not exactly sure where it's gone. Al Wilson junior. I had a hamstring problem credit probably get back to fast I don't know you try to get better quickly against Oakland and that sent him back. Not sure he's going to be able to go factor it they get ergo all then I'm Ali try to come back against balanced weeks ago. In. He didn't have any training Kia. And that your ago reactor to try to come back to separate. I was on the injured list and have the biggest one for the game would be Allen Bailey hole. There's been a very steady and stable for years on the defensive line. And he's held open the problem in the developed in our thought it would be up and ready to go but he's not that the president muted news's. That the offensive line looks like a trip to go full throttle. Full throttle for the first time really since. The third week of the season and that's the last time we saw Greenland get to the end zone aren't the phenomenal looking back also would help speed by the time. Christians that means the running game could be cranked up and when that when her energy doing well all of a sudden the pan around and it. Exactly when you crank up this is Gregory in a turnabout. That's the system are going in the field. Good Korean model that you have to get back is they're explosive rocket. And I don't mean just get 456 yard score will do that. But it if you recall when the trees were five and oh he was people in our forties and fifties and sixties and it's so they've got to get that back in there or what they do. Current infrastructure. And moving the chains been a concern have a little bit of trouble lately on third downs. Yeah after him the best in the league but you don't try to like talk about talk recurring camp you guys. The golden triangle third down red zone that you minute Jesus would invest heavily in the criminal offense are going. But the third down numbers are really slipped below average in the National Football League. In matters trinity somewhat of a dramatic properties. However. Alex ripped the still the top rated quarterback in the NFL and nominal eight touchdowns it is one pick. Battery in the congress believe and also. You know they just be in part of that rugged kind of get into the because if they get cream heart going again they'll get some of those first downs trick with the skirt short. After the fight and no start chiefs have dropped three out of four or did the bye week come at a nice time for rejuvenation here at this midway point. Perfect time couldn't be better. In here's the short term long term the short term ordered mentioned some guys repression richer and it it. But when you look at the calendar the long term levity if you're going to get the Minneapolis which is the promised land this year it is essentially. What about the halfway point from the beginning of training in all the way back to our earth straining their reports. July 31 or August 1 that you take that have a three month march. You'll get to near here. And then you're gonna do it it's almost a stream of mark to get him to Minneapolis so it was a perfect time physically mentally and emotionally. Course the giants. Might be good to everybody wants the giants on their schedule next week then they are not playing well they've haven't won a home game this year they have been decimated by injury. And they are spiraling down the drain but sometimes you gotta in the NFL is the kind of once have to watch out or some weeks. This is Gregory note on contract an appeal on that war that he's not trivial and there's a lot of weeds in this real for the New York. And probably the most disappointing team in the NFL when you look at the expectation. They made the playoffs last year and this year to be one minute. However there dangerous. We've talked about a three years with the NFL not college football this is an Alabama playing outlets and state. But that decision. He pushed reports there are lessons statements. Through eastern Michigan it's not that and so fast that the the Denver bronco. Is that your jets one win ruin the democracies wrote that it was at Denver and it. The original first victims of the excerpts of Trevor from him right for the past. The giants ran downhill Orleans star or. They've been challenged this week whether coach has been very dysfunction at an element or. It's sometimes are seeing that rally in the that you have to take care of business here crush these guys ought. T so the giants on Sunday is it pregame coverage begins at 11 o'clock Sunday morning ticked off at high noon. They told us we'll have the call right here on your home of the chiefs 987 and thirteen thirty KMS as the Mets I must ask you Kyra this chiefs giants matchup on Sunday. Somehow relate to Wichita State's shocker football as part of ray bought a sucker for what it is that he sees update. Other slowness so obvious it or apologize and advance. That the number ten comes to mind here to hand the number ten was rollovers that yet this this. Opera segment dedicated medal at the pop up but just. 230 in that respect about. And back he looks Japanese these tent thinking and that's great source doctor are. Well of our league positions I was in the segment every week ten. And it's an impacted number can be viewed at what it. I think anxious people. Or you can email. And it hurts the character. And she told witness. It's it's it's a little bit you know it goes for about loading in his little brain and it'd be only bring. Player ever drafted by the Wichita State are on the subsidy program by the New York. That he actually so we have ordered that they actually spoke for years we talked about in Hamburg bank. Wore number it and for the New York. If you digger and deepen our urban Google paper mistreated. Yeah there's a great team photo that you'll find a potentially still he has. Because he played behind white civil yet. Or so how much playing time you Finkel thank god and not much one game now played one game but there's no past. There's no run I think he came in for maybe a couple plays into the all law maybe discredit to order Alex Webster and then ran off the field. That edit stuff parent and I are trying to keep their role I don't know the story picnic started universe why. Some are from Oklahoma went to Hawaii. Came back to cost to build community college that's Corey got to which they'll stagger the universe of what you saw it put their rights fees would rank on. He gets drafted by the giants in 1964. Missed extra. But you're playing behind why turtle it's like being behind Tom Brady year. I mean on an all time ain't gonna happen so but he's in the team picture saw. He's there and he photographed. In they had. In the Atlanta Falcons committed an expansion team or an upper every right it's the mean machine. It's a pain he tries it out what the rockets. It's 66 being in debt doesn't work you get caught. Credit for the experience and 66 or hypocrisy in that Tripoli and for the 49ers that didn't go so good year and goes back to one of the farm club. In the east but are they can report dedicated old number ten actually below the hurt at all. Ever to play but he universe of Wichita sledge Wichita State. This serves about when you can have it actually stall number there and if you don't have a program so bring it directed at Steve Berger are.
