    Default The future


    0 Not allowed!
    If this team continues to grow and improve, despite the win/loss record, I am extremely hopeful for the coming seasons.

    I can't stop thinking of how much we will gain during the 2012 offseason.

    Along with another new draft class, a year under the belt of our current rookie crop, and another free agent period, we are going to gain a top 5 pick (Erric Berry), a player who is well worth a no.1 overall pick (Charles), and a TE who well exceeded his third round draft position.

    With the emergence of Jackie Battle, partnering him with Charles could become one of the deadliest "thunder and lightning" combos that any team has seen in a long time.

    Add the receiving threat of Moeaki to Bowe, Breaston, and a rising Johnathan Baldwin, and the passing weapons will be quite formidable.

    And getting Berry back, with the way this defense has been performing, I can see this team challenging the elite teams of the league, on a regular basis.

    Add a new draft class, and the sky's the limit.

    But let's not forget that this team is in a great position to challenge for the post-season before we even get those players back.

    At this point, it would take a complete meltdown, for the rest of the season, to dampen the outlook for the future.

    Feeling pretty good about this team right now.

    Hopefully now that the foundation has been laid we can finally address the lines. They have been adequate but it appears we are more than adequate at the "skill" positions.

    we don't exactly have a franchise QB,i believe we will need to look for a solid QB very soon.CASSEL is decent but not the mega star you need to run your team to the elite level.

    The future is exciting!

    You got me excited, so I started looking at Draft prospect for next year, and unlike previous seasons I had a hard time finding a glaring need in our roster.

    We need depth at a few positions. NT could be a position we might target high in the draft, (but we just drafted Powe to hopefully step in shortly)

    It was kinda nice to not have 6 positions in my head that needed starters filled in haha.

    Our pass rush is still struggling. We are dead last in the league with 9 sacks. That is pretty bad considering we have one of the best pass rush LB's in the league and he has all but 3 of those sacks.

    Pass Rush and OL are the most glaring team needs right now.

    I mentioned that a while back and got bitten- as it was clear to nearly everyone that the key to a run of five super bowl victories was Andrew Luck.

    *mind you, not anyone to protect him.

    I love threads like this. I like optimism. Pessimism is such a crappy way to live. This team is getting better when nearly everyone left them for dead. They have a ways to go, but they are competing and giving great effort. That is what I require as a fan.

    Agreed! While I admit that playing teams like the Fins do make me nervous, I am confident in the Chiefs ability to extend their winning streak.

    1) Tomba is getting mugged almost every play, but he still keeps coming. I know they certainly could have called McNiel on a few more this last Monday night.

    2) 100% agree
