Chiefs Defense Shines At Thursday Practice

The Chiefs practice boasted good defense on Thursday.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs were back to work on Thursday after a day off from training camp on Wednesday.

Offensive Coordinator Doug Pederson made national headlines when he said quarterback Alex Smith was the best QB in the NFL.

In other news, the Chiefs defense seemed to dominate the day of practice, and the offense was marred by several dropped passes.

"Gotta catch the football," said Chiefs Coach Andy Reid. "You have to catch the football. In any offense in the National Football League, drops cost you, so you've got to focus in and concentrate on the football particularly when you're tired, sweating, tired, you've got to catch the football."

Reid then praised his defense.

"I thought the defense did a nice job," he said. "They did a nice job and that's how you'd expect it. Early in camp you want that defense to be dominating and then the offense always takes a little longer to get going, that's how it normally works. I was proud of the way they handled each other, getting after it, competing. You know, there's some good things."
