This is what I fear the most come game one in the regular season. I just hope they are going to be able to iron out the deficiencies in the offensive line before the season opener.In the 9-on-7 drill designed for the running game on both offense and defense, the Chiefs starting group was very unimpressive and didnít get much push off the line of scrimmage. It was the same for the second and third offensive lines, although both groups were able to create one play that gained good yardage. The second offensive line from left to right: Will Svitek, Tre Stallings, Rudy Niswanger, Kevin Sampson and Kyle Turley. The No. 3 group was Herb Taylor, George Batiste, Rob Hunt, James Newby and Svitek.
When the Chiefs offense went to the team-passing segment, Damon Huard went with the first team and things didnít start so well. Huard hit three-of-three passes, but all of them were short. The Vikings also picked up a coverage sack.
It wasnít much better when Croyle went in with the second offensive line. On the first play Croyle hit the ground after one of his own linemen stepped on his foot. Two plays later it wasnít an accident, as he was knocked down by the Vikings pass rush. When he went in for two plays with the third offensive line, Casey Printers was sacked.
Because of the wet field, the head coaches decided not to do any one-on-one drills, so their was no pass rush-pass protection battles between the O-Line and D-Line and there were no one-on-one coverage plays between the wide receivers and defensive backs.
