Q&A with Dick Vermeil
Aug 24, 2005, 3:45:05 PM


Q: How was practice today?

DICK VERMEIL: “I thought it was a good practice. It was a good tempo. We’ve had two practices in a row with pads with good tempo. We take the pads off them tomorrow. Like I just told them, by the time we play the Jets we’ll have had only two padded practices left, plus two pre-season games to get pad work. I think they took advantage of it today.”

Q: Where is this team in relation right now in the pre-season to other teams you’ve had?

VERMEIL: “Geez, I don’t know. Every once in a while I think they’re better, some times I think we’re not as good. Obviously, we haven’t scored many points in a pre-season game. Last year we were ahead in doing those kinds of things. But every year is a little bit different, has its own unique problems. I’d like to think we’re better. I thought that coming out of training camp, but I don’t know if we’ve proven anything to justify that feeling yet.”

Q: Is Trent hurt at all?

VERMEIL: “No, he had some numbness in his little toe.”

Q: Because he threw some interceptions in 11-on-11.

VERMEIL: “Hopefully, the defense is getting better.”

Q: Do you know anything about Kris Griffin’s injury?

VERMEIL: “He went for an MRI.”

Q: How important is this third pre-season game for the confidence of your offense? You’ve said that they’re not moving as well as you want and this is a game where they’re going to get at least a half, right?

VERMEIL: “Yeah, but you’d like to believe we haven’t lost much of what we had. But you still have to prove it. Whatever we did last year doesn’t count, doesn’t make a darn bit of difference. It’s what you do now. With our approach and the way we run the offense in the pre-season games we make it a little tougher on ourselves. Usually you don’t score as many points doing that. We weren’t as efficient in the first two games as we were last year, that’s all.

“Should I be worried about it? I worry about everything all the time.”

Q: How about Kendrell Bell? He practiced a little more today?

VERMEIL: “He was in the contact drills. He jumped into the goal line and short yardage work. Like I said, he needs just a few snaps a day to get the rust out.”

Q: Enough to let him play this week?

VERMEIL: “I hope so.”

Q: Griffin’s injury?

VERMEIL: “He took off to run and he felt a strain. Didn’t feel a pop, just a strain, so hopefully that’s all it is.”

Hopefully, this means we'll see Kendrell Bell on Saturday.

I hope Griffin is ok. He looked pretty damn good against Arizona. Good thing we have Fujita.

It's a step in the right direction. I'd like to see the "I hope so" be a "yes", but it is out of Vermeil's hands.

I hope Griffin isn't injured seriously.

I think Griffin will be alright.

Bell is getting close to full go. The training staff is probably waiting to see how Bell's shoulder will feel tomorrow morning.

And yet another reason why Dickey should run for office. :shake:

If he can stay healthy it will make a big difference.

Oh crap, knowing the Chiefs luck with injuries I hope this doesn't mushroom into something more serious.

Not possible. Bell can't have contact. He's a flag football player.

How would you even know if you had numbness in your little toe?

Heh. I like how when Trent throws interceptions in practice, the press AUTOMATICALLY assumes he's screwed up. Gee, the defense COULDN'T be getting better, could it? ROFL

And up to now that's all he's been since this was his first full contact practice. I'm hoping Bell will hide the flags, but I bet he's wearing them for long stretches this season. We'll see...

He's not a flag football player. Haven't you heard, he was being held back because of a combination of being too rough (he would hurt all of our offensive players) and Gunther has a super, duper, secret plan to utilize him in manner that no OC has ever imagined possible. I heard it was called the triple-dog-dare-blitz package. It will rock the football world and all 32 teams will be utilizing it in 2006 - but nobody will be able to execute it like KC because we have Kendrell Bell; the LB who plays too rough.
