The “Houston Question” is bugging all Chiefs fans. No doubt about that. So I will try to offer some thoughts on the situation…

#1) Nobody knows what Houston is demanding in terms of a long term deal. But it seems to be safe to say that it’s at LEAST somewhere in the range of $16 to $18 million per year (cap hit) with somewhere close to 50% guaranteed.

#2) Can the Chiefs afford that? With the projected salary cap increases over the next few years it seems certain that the Chiefs could pay that kind of money.

San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates has been handed a 4-game suspension by the NFL after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

Welp.

In what will very likely be Antonio Gates’ final season with the San Diego Chargers, if not his last season in the NFL, the San Diego Chargers future Hall of Fame TE will miss a quarter of the team’s games and get marked down as a user of Performance-Enhancing Substances.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin had some familiarity with the Chiefs’ offensive scheme when he arrived in Kansas City this offseason because of his past working relationship with coach Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, but he’d never played with quarterback Alex Smith. Maclin says that the two men clicked during the spring and that…

think about it…

he has only been efficient because hes never had anyone to throw the long ball to?

a game manager means he is dealing with the tools provided.

is it possible were he in a donkey uniform the last two years he would have eclipsed 4000 yards?

i think we underestimate alex.

Pretty much every conversation about the Chiefs’ playoff potential centers around their offense.

Even the most cynical fans and analysts see the Chiefs have built a very good defense with a legitimate shot at being scary. There’s no doubt they’ll make some quarterbacks miserable, and there’s a decent shot the run defense shores up enough to keep teams from abusing them on the ground.

But there are a lot of question marks with the offense. After Jeremy Maclin the Chiefs boast a series of “well, if…” players. Those are guys who you have to always Read more…
