I had said last year about Alex Smith that I didn't care about what happened with Smith in SF, because it's what Alex does in KC that counts, now.
And both Reid and Smith have gotten off to a respectable start in KC.
I'm still waiting for someone anyone to tell me what exactly we lost that was just so great. We let some nice players go but no all stars. We brought in guys who while they won't be all stars they won't be asked to be. And we STILL HAVE THE DRAFT to get better. The rookies from last year should progress some. I don't see anything to be so upset about with this team. And this is the offseasons we are going to have to get use to. I've said before Dorsey as a gm will either be a success of a failure by how he drafts.
Re-quoted for truth. Talent-wise I thought the best two we lost were McCluster and Schwartz. But even with that in mind it's not like the sky is falling, and in 2015 we'll get at least 3 or 4 extra draft picks (Good excuse to rebuild the secondary...). It's real easy to look over at Denver, who's spending money hand over fist to "win now", and get envious because we can only spend pennies in comparison.
Atleast in the year we need multiple players to provide quality playing time through the draft it was this year. There will be quality talent on into the undrafted phase of the draft. We can find quality talent and lots of it this year. That's a bright side.
Yes, drugs are bad. However, you may need some before the Reid regime ends. Before you scoff, name the coaches who have won Super Bowls in their second stints as HC. Then from that list point out the ones (one?) who did it after being in the league 10+ years. I sure you believe it's statistical "voodoo mumbo jumbo." Coaches get stale.
History/Odds are highly against Andy Reid winning a SB in KC. You may not care what Reid did in Philly, but as history as shown, if you choose to ignore it, you are bound to repeat it.
