Skyy Moore: Can’t be mad about playing two offensive snaps, have to wait my turn

Chiefs rookie wide receiver Skyy Moore only played two offensive snaps against the Chargers in Week Two and they were both kneeldowns at the end of the game, but Moore hasn’t spent the last week complaining about his role.

Moore, who also serves as the team’s punt returner, said he’s “not too worried about anything” when it comes to his role on the team because he’s confident offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has a good plan in place. The second-round pick also realizes that there’s little point in fretting about early-season playing time when there’s a talented group of players ahead of him on the depth chart.

“Not really on a team like this. We’re a Super Bowl team. I can’t be mad,” Moore said, via Jesse Newell of the Kansas City Star. “So I just gotta wait my turn.”

Bieniemy said that Moore “brings a lot to the table” and that developing that talent is something the team plans to do over the course of the season, so there should be more Moore in the weeks to come.

  1. Reid knows how to acclimate young players to the NFL. He likes to bring young offensive players up methodically. Tyreek Hill spent his first year almost exclusively returning kick offs. So, of course, Sky wouldn’t be worried.

  2. This isn’t a story 20 years ago – welcome to the world of fantasy football. Great take Skyy, perfect answer.

    Never good when a 1st rounder can’t get on the field.
    Possible bust..

    Too bad he wasn’t a first rounder.

  4. “Wait your turn?”

    No…seize your turn by being better than the other guys. MVS, Juju, and Mecole really haven’t shown up. Your turn is there for the taking, kid. Don’t wait!

    Skyy Moore was not a first round pick.

  6. As much hype as he and Pacheco we’re getting from July to August, as a Chiefs fan I too am surprised by what I’ve seen, or haven’t seen from them, thus far. Clyde seems to be a middle of the pack RB at best and McKinnon has some good plays, but neither screams superstar. But both Moore and Pacheco coming from smaller schools probably have a lot of room for growth. Hopefully they do…

  7. Andy Reid knows what he’s doing. Pretty sure that when Andy decides Skyy is ready, he’ll get plenty of playing time. Tyreek was a kick returner exclusively until Andy decided he was ready for more. Seemed to work out pretty well.

    In Andy we trust.
