    Default Red Chip & Blue Chip Rankings; Some Love for a few Chiefs!


    0 Not allowed!
    Micheal Lombardi of NFL.com gave out Red Chip and Blue Chip Rankings for each potions in the NFL.

    Definition of a blue-chip player
    Player demonstrates rare abilities and can create mismatches that have an obvious impact on the game
    Is a premier player in the league and a weapon on the field
    Combines competitiveness and skill to have a consistent championship-level performance
    Rates in the top five at his position in the league

    Definition of a red-chip player
    Player has abilities that can create mismatches vs. most opponents in the league
    Is a featured player on the team and has impact on the outcome of the game
    Player can't be taken out of the game in one-on-one matchup
    Has a consistent level of performance each week
    Plays at a championship level performance
    Rates in the top 10 at his position in the league


    He gave some love to a few Chiefs that I thought was nice. A few that would be Expected, and a Few that were a surprise (the average analyst usually bypasses love for these players)

    We only had 1 Blue Chip Recipient : Eric Berry
    and Lombardi had this to say " The top two players here were easy to pick (Reed & Palomalu). Berry might be moving into that group if he has another season like his rookie year."

    And a handful of Red Chip Recipients : Tamba Hali, Jamaal Charles, and Brandon Flowers (who I was presently surprised to see on this list because he usually doesn't get much love when the conversation of top DB's in the league come up)

    Dwayne Bowe fell just short, but Lombardi did make this comment "Dwyane Bowe of the Chiefs was the hardest omission. He had 10 touchdowns last season, but it never felt like he could take over a game." (There was actually a typo because Bowe had 15 TD's)

    Overall I can agree with most of these rankings! I think with one more year we could see Bowe move into a Red Chip Role, and Charles and Hali move into a Blue Chip Role. Nice to see our boys getting some love!

    I'm very mad at you Deber, I looked up John Clayton... that **** is going to give me nightmares. There are some things you just can't unsee.

    John Clayton's got an ugly mug man!

    I've been thinking that for years! does kinda give me the creeps!

    It does seem like the media holds back the love for our Chiefs, but I think mainly because it's a small market.... if you think about it, the teams you hear most about are teams like NY Jets and Giants, Chargers, Philly, New England....

    You hear about the Packers and Colts (smaller market teams), but it seems like across the U.S. as a whole you will find a majority of GB and Indy fans, more so than chiefs fans.

    oh well, I like not getting the love and surprising people, no one thought we would do good last year, and they still don't think we are for real this year! lets show em who we are!

    Sorry, no way:

    Definition of a red-chip player

    No, Bowe cannot do this, in fact, he has had issues in this very area.

    Is a featured player on the team and has impact on the outcome of the game

    Sometimes, but not consistently, some games last year he was not even mentioned.

    Player can't be taken out of the game in one-on-one matchup

    Not Bowe, he can be taken out of a game in a one on one matchup.

    Has a consistent level of performance each week

    The biggest knock on Bowe has always been consistency. That is the number one problem with him.

    Plays at a championship level performance

    Sometimes, but not consistently.

    Rates in the top 10 at his position in the league

    I am not sure about this one, I believe he is just out of the top ten in almost all categories with the exception of dropped passes.


    Are you man enough? Eric Berry? Apparently Not!
