Junior Hemingway Could Be The Next Guy for Andy Reid 


JUNIOR HEMINGWAY MIGHT BE THE KEY

St, Joseph, MO - On Sunday evening, the Kansas City Chiefs will get a prime time showdown against the Carolina Panthers. One player, who missed the teams exhibition opener, wide receiver Junior Hemingway, will finally get a chance to show off his improving skills. If he takes another leap in 2014, his offensive output could be a driving force behind KC’s offense.

I was also pissed at Hemingway not getting enough looks last year. He was the safest hands on the team and did pretty much everything needed. Hopefully this year will be different.

Hemingway's a good Red Zone, short yardage guy, but I'd much rather see DAT and Albert Wilson playing the slot more regularly than Junior. The more explosive guys on the field, the better.

I think we'll see them more in obvious passing situations as better route runners and speedy guys but Hemingway will always have the edge in terms of blocking for Charles. Last year our primary advantage with WRs was that our HBs could get a few extra yards with solid blocking. I don't see Reid giving up on that.

He looked good last year in limited action. I hope to see him get more snaps.

"One player who did not look out of place and has seized control of his starting role despite being out with an injury for most of camp is WR Junior Hemingway, who not only displayed his impeccable hands (which the Chiefs desperately need) but also his improved route running and deceptive speed. The stocky, bruising 6-foot-1, 225-pound slot receiver caught every ball that came his way (at one point in 11-on-11s, Alex Smith went to him four times in a row for 4 straight receptions). He also utilized a quick double move to roast the defending corner Chris Owens and grab an easy TD in team scrimmages. The Chiefs need desperately for pleasant surprises in their receiving corps, with many seeing that as one of their weak positions. Hemingway flashed last year and showed that he had some of the best hands on the team, but his overall role in the offense was limited with Dexter McCluster manning the slot receiver spot."

I wonder if he's faster or simply better route running is helping him play faster. Either way it's a big gain for us but I hope the primary focus is in route running. He has everything else going for him and with better routes he could be a big threat.
