Just for kicks, we asked a Chiefs expert to share some of Kansas City’s most glaring weaknesses with us.

Matt Conner is a friend of ours and the editor at FanSided’s original site, Arrowhead Addict, one that covers the Kansas City Chiefs daily. We asked him to hang out with us, and he graciously agreed to do so.

We picked his brain about everything from Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes, and Travis Kelce to where the best places are in K.C. to watch a football game (and eat). Then, we got into schematics. How could we not?

Who better to ask about possible areas of an Eagles attack than a man that knows the Chiefs both backward and forward? Conner gave us some gold. We took it and ran.

He identified K.C.’s top weaknesses as being their susceptibility to being beaten in the passing game at the defense’s second level, their lack of bodies at wide receiver, and their inability to be consistently productive in short-yardage situations.

We won’t share the entire conversation here, but let’s dig a little deeper. Here are some of the results of what turned out to be a very productive discussion.
