I am more worried about the secondary then Baldwin we have ran a very bland offense most teams don't show much of what they have in the preseason. The secondary has been so bad I think there is a reason for worry there.
Not trying to sound completely idiotic here, but I grew up a baseball kid.
And a Cubs fan.
went to a Cards/Cubs game @Busch back in 8th grade, right behind 3rd base, 1 run game, which we missed, we gave into hunger, and missed the only score.
The only part I remember was watching Sammy Sosa strike out to end the game with runners on 1st and 2nd.
That was the last day I watched baseball, or listened to a game.
After that summer, I heard a Chiefs broadcast, and so far the rest is history...
I feel jinxed, like I am the reason "my teams" suck lol
I don't want to lose the luster of football, but every year having the huge build up (at least we've had that the last couple years, hope) to be slammed back down to earth, I may just have to give up and just go back 100% into racing.. this is too much for my aging, fat heart :D
MMO--> if we can run, then we can pass via Play Action... and honestly, there are teams that can't accomplish that, so it's not really a bad thing.
I'm sure we were pretty vanilla in both sides of the ball, but the fact remains that offseason screw ups may hurt us more than (they) we realize(d) until Week 1 when "oh sheet!!!" moments strike the front office.
And as a Cassel backer, PA pass is really his strongest suit... that and the "dink and dunk" short yardage style play is his bread and butter, we don't need that "big play threat", we have 3 to 5 "reliable play threats" that can average 4 yards out in a formation, we can keep the ball moving, which as we all know, keeps the other offense off the field, eases the burden to our D...
and helps us win games.
Them 50 yard bombs look amazing and get the blood flowing of everyone watching, but keeping control of a game helps you WIN.
We wanna win the games, and I don't know that Shaun Smith gives us anything we don't have. He has more of an "in your face" attitude, and I think he could actually help along the younger guys, but hey we have a "youngest NFL roster" title to watch out for, and adding him is going to ruin that LOL
He may be the best thing for Poe, give him a fiery guy in his ear to get him some feedback, get him fired up, it very well could be worth a shot. Cut Stanzi and add S. Smith
It's not so much that I had a problem franchising Bowe, but not at the cost of screwing with our secondary. The front office turned it into a "Must lose one to keep the other" scenario...Only to come this >< close to losing both. Dallas picked up a really good CB.
whats that overused phrase, tv rides it like it's :beat_DeadHorse: ooooh yea, Keep the defense honest lol we need to stretch it more often, to try to keep them honest. we can basically keep a defense honest, but not quite 100%. if we could do everything (on paper at least) that we should be able to do with weapons available, and then have 1 or 2 that can stretch the field, the Chiefs could seriously worry defensive coordinators into the ground I think.
Granted, that would be perfect scenario, and nothing perfect in this world, but overall I think the offense, generally, has quite a lot to work with, and hopefully it's enough to maybe hit that 10 game "into the playoffs" magic number that coaches seem to harp on so much
