When Kansas City acquired Eddie Drummond, it was done with the thought that Donte Hall had lost his magic and become fearful of the big hit. And while that may be true, the substitution has not proved fruitful for the Chiefs.
Drummond is currently struggling through the worst slump of his entire career, and much of it has nothing to do with him. Due to some key injuries and under-performance, Kansas City ranks near the bottom of the NFL in kick return average -- something that shows no signs of changing any time soon.
Unlike Hall, Drummond refuses to take his frustrations out the team. Instead, he has decided to take the high road.
"It's a gradual thing right now," Drummond said. "I'm not getting on the guys hard, not getting frustrated or anything. I'm being patient with them. I've got to be. Blocking for kick returns is a difficult job, especially if you're not used to doing it. Sooner or later, everything will come together."Whether or not things turn around for Kansas City remain to be seen. But one thing is for sure; that attitude is a breath of fresh air
