Throughout his coaching career Cheap Travis Kelce Jersey , first with the Eagles and now with the Chiefs, Andy Reid has taken criticism for poor clock management. But a new analysis calls that criticism into question.Specifically, Reid is sometimes chided for “wasting” timeouts, using them early in halves to take time to get a play called, rather than saving them for late in the half when he needs to stop the clock during a two-minute drill. However, Reid might not be wasting those timeouts at all: He may be using that time wisely by dialing up his best offensive plays.That’s the indication from an analysis by Paul Noonan of SB Nation’s Packers site, which found that Mike McCarthy often wasted timeouts only to call a play that turned out to be no better than whatever Aaron Rodgers could have called at the line of scrimmage. That will come as no surprise to anyone who watched McCarthy, who was fired during a disappointing 2018 season.But where the analysis was surprising was in its evaluation of Reid. The Chiefs called 16 timeouts while on offense during the 2018 season, and the Chiefs’ offense was outstanding after those timeouts. In fact, using a metric called “expected points added http://www.chiefscheapshoponline.com/ch ... ker-jersey ,” the Chiefs were found to be the best offense in football on plays immediately following timeouts. When Reid uses a timeout, he’s not just doing it because he was slow to get a play called and wants to avoid a delay of game penalty. He’s often doing it to strategize with Patrick Mahomes, make sure the right personnel is on the field and everyone understands their assignments, and unleash a play that is the very best in the playbook for the situation the Chiefs are facing.It might seem like every coach would be able to dial up his best play after a timeout, but that really isn’t the case. Many teams actually had negative expected points added after timeouts. The coaches of those teams surely thought they were giving themselves extra time to come up with a great play, but not every coach is a great play caller. Some coaches end up calling a dud of a play when they give themselves more time.But Reid is not one of those coaches: He gets the right play called, over and over again. The tradeoff, of course, is that a timeout used to get a good play called is a timeout that can’t be used late in the half. If the Chiefs are out of timeouts and they need to stop the clock on Saturday against the Colts, Reid will take plenty of criticism. But that criticism should be tempered by the knowledge that Reid doesn’t just throw away his timeouts for no reason. When he calls timeout http://www.chiefscheapshoponline.com/ch ... ray-jersey , he’s got the right play in mind.Orlando Scandrick says this Chiefs team is “special” Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Orlando Scandrick is 31 years old.He’s playing in his 10th NFL season — the first nine of which were with the Dallas Cowboys.A player of Scandrick’s age isn’t as fast or athletic as he was when he was 21.That’s a given.But it’s also a given that Scandrick has wisdom.Before coming to the Chiefs, he spent his whole career on a consistently good football team — one that went to the playoffs in multiple seasons.He knows a lot of NFL players and knows a lot about the teams for which they play.To put it another way, he’s not only been around the block, but he also knows about what happens on the other blocks in the neighborhood.So when Scandrick talks about the Chiefs team for which he is now playing — as he did after Sunday’s 30-14 victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars — we should pay attention.“I feel like we have something really, really special,” he said. “I have been in the NFL a long time and I have never been around a team with the kind of infectious spirit like this. This is a team that comes to work every day and tries to get better, and just embraces every challenge.”He was asked about the five takeaways the Chiefs got against the Jaguars offense — the last of which was his own end-zone interception that ended Jacksonville’s final drive.“It was a long time coming. Turnovers come in bunches. We talked about that all week. We talk about touching the ball in practice and carrying it over to the game, and I think this was just the beginning of what is to come.”Fellow defensive back Kendall Fuller had similar thoughts when speaking about safety Jordan Lucas and his 49-yard interception return on Sunday.“They always say things that you do in practice, that happens in the game. [Lucas] was in practice during the week flying around and making plays. It shows up on Sunday.”“I think it was coming,” Fuller said. “I think the main thing is just coming out with energy. I think how we were just flying around Cheap Chris Conley Jersey , having fun, making plays. It was definitely coming.”Quarterback Patrick Mahomes — who doesn’t have the direct experience that players like Scandrick have, but spent much of his childhood around professional athletes like his father — spoke about Dee Ford’s strip-sack of Blake Bortles immediately after his first interception of the season.“It shows what kind of team we are in every phase of the game,” he said. “We can win games with everyone on this team. It’s not just the offense, it’s not just the defense, it’s not just special teams. We’re a unit, and we believe that.”
