View Full Version : Chiefs Special Teams Short List

Ok, I'm no expert, that's what I come here to find. Expertise.

I've never played NFL ball, nor college, nor High School. Not football anyway.

To my untrained eye, I would gather that a good list of priorities for Special Teams Gunners and fast-men would be something like this.

#1 Keep out of the stinking endzone, because nothing ruins a good punt like bringing it out to the 20.
#2 Don't step in the endzone, because a great way to deflate a team, namely yours, is to let the pressure off by forcing them to start at the 20 instead of the 1.
#3 Complete your assignments.
#4 Don't commit a penalty.
#5 Party hard when the cameras are on you, and hope the coach sees something in you.

I'm sure tensions run high, and adrenaline is flowing and the crowd is loud, and all sorts of things. Are my expectations too high that we keep the important things important? Maybe the goal line is hard to see with all of that "other colored turf" on the other side of it and all?
