Ja'Marr Chase Chiefs Secondary

Ja’Marr Chase made it abundantly clear that there is no love lost between the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals. The two AFC powerhouses (in recent years) are set to play again this weekend.

Chase couldn’t be less concerned with the players on the other side of the ball.

When asked what stands out about the Kansas City secondary, the 23-year-old NFL wide receiver was very honest. Perhaps too honest.

“If I’m being honest, nothing,” Chase said.

Of course, his comments are going to ruffle some feathers among the Chiefs defensive backs. They aren’t going to appreciate what Chase had to say and will have extra motivation to shut him down.

He doesn’t care. Not one bit.

“They could take it how they (want to take it), I don’t care,” Chase said.

Kansas City has quite a few players in its secondary that are of note. Safety Bryan Cook is among the more talented. Chase was not particularly kind to him either.

“I don’t even know who that is,” he said. “Is that No. 6? I don’t know, man. Just a guy to me. He ain’t Jessie Bates to me. You want me to go (into) comparisons? It’s not the same. Just saying.”


Although the Bengals pass-catcher was mostly abrasive, he did give some praise to L’Jarius Sneed and called him “the best player on their team.” However, it was a bit of a backhanded compliment.

Chase doubled down to say that Sneed is only the best player on the Chiefs because the rest of the players are not up to his level. He didn’t stop there!

“That’s why they double everybody, because they can’t do it one-on-one,” Chase added.

And then he fired the kill shot.

“(The Chiefs) know I’m good,” he said. “They know how to play us. That’s what it is, but it’s not like they got a superstar on their defense.”

Will Chase regret his harsh words? We will find out on Sunday.
