Bishop Sankey hasn’t changed his ways, not helping Marcus Mariota

Sankey needs to get in the groove before someone takes his job because he is having quite the disappointing performance here tonight against the Kansas City Chiefs. He has not showed much burst at all nor the necessary vision to become an efficient runner in between the tackles. Sankey also fumbled in the second quarter. Despite Marcus Mariota’s very impressive performance in the first half, that has been blanketed in my opinion due to Sankey’s disappointing performance.

Ramik Wilson keeps proving people wrong

One of the biggest steals of the draft was when Ramik Wilson fell all the way to the fourth round to the Chiefs. He has already proven his worth by leading all players in tackles in the preseason, and is on track to possibly start week one with performances like these. Keep an eye on this Wilson folks.

Chiefs passing game looking much better, Titans secondary struggles

Alex Smith did not throw a touchdown pass for all of 2014, but that doesn’t mean the Chiefs should just throw in the towel for 2015. He has only two incompletions thus far with two very impressive touchdown throws to Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce. It seems to me that each of these guys are starting to get that chemistry down. However, the same can’t be said for the other side of the ball as the Titans’ young secondary looks lost out there. More specifically, Coty Sensabaugh looks like he’s out of place at the outside cornerback position. Sensabaugh needs to get it together before he loses his job.
