The Kansas City Chiefs were talking just two more seasons and they’d be a Super Bowl contender. That after last year’s division title. The Royals – who everyone, including me, pissed on – came in last. And while recordwise they’re still a poor team (bottom five) THEY’RE STARTING TO WIN.
I actually believe with Eric Hosmer, this team will contend for the division next year…finally.
If – and only if – David Glass goes out and buys at least two or three pitchers. One big time starter, a solid starter and a good reliever. If so, the Royals will battle to win the title for the first time in nearly 30 years. A great player raises all ships and Hosmer is a great player.
On the other hand, the Chiefs have to start over.
They are now where the Royals were, one of five worst teams in the NFL. They have nothing.
First, they need to get a new head coach. According to insiders – his closest media pals – Haley knows he’s getting fired. He knows it may come in a few weeks. Jim Zorn will likely be the temp coach, but he’s unlikely to remain head coach next season.
So who do we hire? Brother, that’s a tough one.
None of the big name guys in the NFL want this job. Forget Bill Cowher, unless he’s also the GM and gets paid a boatload.
Hey, sounds good to me.
GM Scott Pioli has done nothing for this club either. Except act like a pompus ass with Todd.
We need a new quarterback. Matt Cassel is toast. Too slow, no arm, often hurt. He’ll be hurt again and out soon. And the players don’t respond to the guy. He looks great in his uniform. Man, he’s as handsome as Tom Brady. But that’s where the similarity ends. We got fooled. He’s just average at best. He’s gone.
I hope pompus Pioli is going to let him go and NOT TRY AND PROVE HE WAS RIGHT BY WASTING ANOTHER SEASON ON MATT. The FRANCHISE needs a franchise quarterback, not Matt. In fact he likely won’t start anywhere, he will back someone up, like TOM BRADY.
We need to buy offensive lineman, defensive lineman – and oh brother – it’s a mess. We should let go Tyson Jackson and maybe Glen Dorsey. They’ve both tanked. Average is not what we want or need. We need to find a couple KILLER defenders so the others will rally around them. Like when we had Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith.
In three years the Chiefs have gone nowhere.
This team is no better – and maybe worse – than Herm Edwards sorry group. As I said then, few of these players will be in Kansas City in two years – five or six tops.
There is no TEAM, just players wanting to get paid.
They have all quit. Just playing for jobs and hoping to be traded like Brian Waters to New England. He was basically fired, just like Joe Montana. They bring you in say, you can quit or we can fire you, which is better for you in the media? They fired Joe for Steve Bono.
There is one former Chief smiling right now and that’s Brian Waters. He started with Tom Brady Monday night. They won. Tom threw for over 500 yards. Waters must have thought he died and went to NEW ENGLAND.
