Eric Berry sends a message to Chiefs fans

Eric Berry sends a message to Chiefs fans
eric-berry-sends-a-message-to-chiefs-fans
Chiefs safety Eric Berry had surgery on his ruptured Achilles on Tuesday, but he didn’t forget to send a positive message to Kansas City fans beforehand.

“I’m coming back, better than ever, man,” Berry said. “I’m coming back to change the game. I’m not coming with that BS. So everybody just watch out and just know that I’m serious when I come back. Straight up.”

This isn’t the first time Berry has faced adversity in his career. He came back from an ACL tear in 2012 and made the Pro Bowl. Also, not only did he beat cancer, but also returned to the field the next season and had one of the best seasons of his career.

Achilles injuries can be tough to come back from. Plenty of players have done it including linebacker Derrick Johnson (twice), while it has caused others to retire (offensive tackle Jake Long).

But when Berry says he’s coming back from something, it’s best to take his word for it.

Kaizer Chiefs pick up first win of the season at Cape Town City

Kaizer Chiefs picked up their first win of the season at Cape Town City on Wednesday as goals from Siphiwe Tshabalala and debutant Wiseman Meyiwa guaranteed a 2-0 victory, while Bidvest Wits were stunned 3-1 at home by Golden Arrows.

The win takes Chiefs up to ninth on four points after three matches,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/pharoh-cooper-jersey-authentic]Authentic Pharoh Cooper Jersey[/url], while Cape Town City - who had won their opening two matches - missed the opportunity to take top spot from Maritzburg United and drop to fourth.

Benni McCarthy's Blue and Gold Army had been in imperious form heading into this encounter, but Chiefs enjoyed arguably the best of the first half,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/rob-havenstein-jersey-authentic]Authentic Rob Havenstein Jerseyy[/url], with Bhongolwethu Jayiya slamming an effort against the woodwork 10 minutes before the break.

The visitors opened the scoring soon after half time when Tshabalala held his nerve inside the box and sent a fine effort into the net, beating ex-Moroka Swallows stopper Sage Stephens.

Amakhosi doubled their lead 10 minutes from time as teenage midfielder Meyiwa marked his introduction to PSL action with a composed finish into the bottom corner.

While 17-year-old Meyiwa was the hero of the hour,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/jamon-brown-jersey-authentic]Authentic Jamon Brown Jersey[/url], with the Bafana Bafana stopper delivering an outstanding showing between the sticks, Chiefs owed the points to Itumeleng Khune as well, particularly as the hosts upped the ante in the final half an hour.

First he denied Sibusiso Masina midway through the second half,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/sean-mannion-jersey-authentic]Authentic Sean Mannion Jersey[/url], and also kept the scores level 23 minutes from time when he twice blocked Lehlohonolo Majoro efforts in close succession.

Over in Johannesburg, Wits' troubled start to the season continued as they were defeated 3-1 following goals from Lerato Lamola,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/gerald-everett-jersey-authentic]Authentic Gerald Everett Jersey[/url], Zolani Nkombelo and Nduduzo Sibiya.

The two sides went in level at the break after Amr Gamal broke his duck for the home side, cancelling out Lamola's opener.

However, Nkombelo restored the visitors' lead with a powerful effort on the counter, before Sibiya killed the contest at the death.

Chiefs injury report: No practice for Bennie Logan on Wednesday

Only one player did not practice for the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday.

Defensive lineman Bennie Logan, who has a knee/quad contusion, did not practice while left guard Parker Ehinger (knee) and linebacker Reggie Ragland (knee) were limited participants.

Safety Ron Parker, who was on the injury list last week with an ankle, practice in full Wednesday.

Logan stood out on the Chiefs defense in KC’s win over the New England Patriots last Thursday. His status is definitely worth keeping an eye on this week as he’s a key piece on the D-line.

If Logan can’t go this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles (his former team), the Chiefs will likely throw Rakeem Nunez-Roches into the mix.

Meanwhile, Ehinger and Ragland didn’t play last week although Ehinger was active for the game. There’s no word on how long it’ll take before those guys can actually participate in games. 

Chiefs QB Smith shrugs off big win, turns focus to Eagles

A year ago, all four of Kansas City's regular-season losses came after big wins. Big wins like the Chiefs' rout of New England last week to open their season.

Two of those losses came at Arrowhead Stadium, which will be the site of Sunday's game against Philadelphia. The Eagles opened their season with a 30-17 win over Washington.

For quarterback Alex Smith, word that he was the AFC's offensive player of the week after the upset of the Patriots brought only a brief smile.

"I just think that if you play long enough you realize how quick things can change," Smith said Wednesday. "One week everybody's raving about you and how quickly it can flip if you drink the Kool-Aid."

Smith finished the opener 28-of-35 passing for 368 yards and four touchdowns, but that's old news to him and the rest of the Chiefs.

"Certainly it's nice but at this point I feel like preparations are already begun on the Eagles," he said. "I've certainly seen teams where they play really good and they're feel so good about themselves and walk into the next week and get smacked in the mouth."

The Chiefs last season struggled converting third downs and putting the ball into the end zone, instead settling for field goals. None of those flaws showed up against New England.

Smith said the team executing well in critical situations proved the difference.

"And that's a lot to playing quarterback, all those situations," Smith explained. "The big moments,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/pharoh-cooper-jersey-authentic]Womens Pharoh Cooper Jersey[/url], third down, two-minute,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/rob-havenstein-jersey-authentic]Womens Rob Havenstein Jersey[/url], red zone, you got to be good and those change games."

Coach Andy Reid often speaks about his quarterbacks putting their own stamp on the West Coast offense. Smith's comfort level appears at peak level entering his fifth season in Reid's system.

"I just want Alex to be Alex,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/jamon-brown-jersey-authentic]Womens Jamon Brown Jersey[/url], that's all, which we do every year. The more he's been in it," Reid said. "We've added stuff,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/sean-mannion-jersey-authentic]Womens Sean Mannion Jersey[/url], the more input he's had."

One wrinkle in this year's offense popped up in the season opener. No quarterback in the league in 2016 took less time to throw after receiving the snap than Smith, only three quarterbacks took more time to throw than Smith.,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/gerald-everett-jersey-authentic]Womens Gerald Everett Jersey[/url], according to the NFL's Next Gen stats. In week one

No played better illustrated the protection provided to a more patient Smith than his 78-yard touchdown pass to Kareem Hunt out of the backfield.

"We're asking a lot of our offensive line and to give that kind of time for that play to develop, a play that does take a little time, was big," Smith said. "All that stuff starts with those guys up front."

Maintaining the combination of execution and patience falls on Smith. The veteran quarterback put the focus on the team's few mistakes against the Patriots to turn focus from the distractions to the Eagles.

"I think we know we're capable of playing better, especially crucial ones."," Smith said. "We had a lot of self-inflicted mistakes and penalties being a part of that

It's hard to believe the Chiefs offense could play better than it did in week one. Reid knows that Smith remains the key in making that happen.

"I don't want him to look anywhere other than getting ready for the game, whatever game it is, get ready for it and be yourself," Reid said. "That's plenty good."
