Travis Kelce: Chiefs’ speedy receivers let us do “anything we want to do”

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is far from the fastest player in Kansas City, but he thinks he’ll benefit from the speed of the receivers around him.

Kelce was asked what the Chiefs’ offense can do with the speed of wide receivers Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Demarcus Robinson and rookie Mecole Hardman, and he answered, “Anything we want to do.”

“You name it. We’ve got 4.2, 4.3, maybe 4.1. I don’t know what Tyreek runs now. Who knows? We’ve got guys that can absolutely fly all over the field,” Kelce said, via ESPN. “Speed kills in this game. If you’ve got it, you’re in the advantage. We’re taking it up a level [from] years past. You can just tell from the coaches’ excitement to their attention to detail to how guys are reacting to their coaching. This team is going to be awesome. We’re going to have a lot of fun on the offensive side of the ball.”

The Chiefs’ offense was the best in the NFL last year, and there’s optimism in Kansas City that they’ll stay on top this year.

  1. All of this is great. I love watching the KC offense. But if you can’t stop the other team from scoring, it’s not gonna help that your receives can fly all over the field. Every game will just be a shootout to see who can score the most points. Ya gotta have some defense, and KC is really struggling in that area. A balanced team needs just that: balance, in all three phases of the game. KC doesn’t have that.

  2. You name it. We’ve got 4.2, 4.3, maybe 4.1.
    ——————————————
    4.1??? The fastest 40s OF ALL TIME range from 4.22 to 4.29, and none of those guys are on the Chiefs roster.

  3. Baker Mayfield take note. Kelce has done something. He’s the best at his position. He’s a proven elite player on a team that recently has had some success. Despite actually having done something Kelces comments still come across more like excitement and less like “hype”.

  4. Seems like the only thing they want to do, besides domestic violence of course, is talk about things their play doesn’t back up.

  5. Except when they face the Patriots. Belichick has figured it out their high school offense.

    INCORRECT. Tyreek Hill ran a 4.2x at his pro day.

  7. AS a life-long Chief’s fan….gotta love all the hate for the Chiefs! Is this what happens when a team is seen to be a Superbowl contender? This must be what Patriot’s fans feel like every year! The Chief’s have to prove over time that they deserve to be this hated, but this is awesome – hate all you want – Go Chiefs!!

  8. Travis Kelce has grown up, a lot. Sidelined from a microfracture surgery his entire rookie season, he has improved his game in every way since coming into the league. He was an immature kid on the field that gave some really, really, dumb penalties that cost this team a few years ago. But by all accounts, and everything he’s been and done in the city, he’s been an ideal guy. I really disliked him when he first got here, but he’s just the dude now and its great.

    This offense is going to be insane this year. Its just a shame I can’t root for one of them.

    The same could be said about Steve Spagnuolo, the new defensive coordinator of the Chiefs.

    And I’m pretty sure than Brandan Daly, the former defensive line coach for the Patriots who is now with the Chiefs, will have something to say about their defensive performance against the Patriots as well.

  10. Yup, they’ll score some point this year for sure. Unfortunately, Andy Reid is still the HC and he’ll screw something up in the playoffs. Its what he does.

  11. The Chargers have their number? How many games have the Chargers won against the Chiefs in Oh, I don’t know…say maybe the last 5 years. If you don’t answer, I’ll know why.

  12. Its hilarious Charger fans even chime in with ZERO SB’s ..Rivers has maybe two years left he will be the next Dan Moreno with half a team a good arm yet no rings.

    Pats fans measure success a little differently

    Can’t think of a team that I dislike more this year than the Chiefs.

    ——–

    Cowboys, Raiders, Patriots, Packers, Giants, Jets… Take your pick.

  15. “You remember when TRAVIS Kelce taunted Tom Brady and then Brady crushed them in the playoffs.
    That was awesome”

    I don’t remember the taunting but crushed them? If Dee Ford hadn’t lined up offside Brady would have finished the year with around 250 yards, 1 Td, 3 interceptions and everyone would be wondering if he was finished.

    ==================================

    So now, according to you, Mahomes is a system QB along with Rodgers and Brady… gotcha. Yikes.

    That high school offense scored 40 and 31 points against Belichick’s defense last year and still went 0-2 .

    I don’t think the Chiefs offensive side of the ball is their main issue.

    Chiefs scored

  17. Look at all the Pats fans chiming in. It’s fear. They already know they can’t count on an offsides penalty to save their season every year.
