Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers has a nose for the football; he has 16 interceptions in five years, including a team-leading three in 2012. However, Flowers wants to up that total and in the bump and run system the team runs, he will get a lot of opportunities to get that done.
“I try to get our defense riled up,” Flowers said, via Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star.
“We love the bump-and-run here, and it was still man-to-man coverage, but I lined up off the line to give him a different look.”
“I’m just trying to get my hands on more footballs … every year, every practice, try to get more knowledge of the game and try to better myself,” said Flowers.
“[DB coach] Al Harris, he stays on top of you every single snap,” Flowers said. “I told Sean, ‘He’s trying to turn us into machines.’ Emmitt has seen everything … but Al has been in the fire not too long ago, and helps tell us how to jump certain routes because he knows how he had to adjust. Every pointer, every coach can give us … even Andre Reed talking to defenders … we’re trying to gain every edge we can.”
