    Default If the 2013 draftees step up?

    I find myself reading this board and it seems to be in such a panic. Rightfully so maybe, we got destroyed in the first off-season phase of free agency. We do have some holes primarily in depth some with more immediate needs. However if fisher, Kelce, commings, Cooper, Catapano if these guys can step up and some contribute some start and do well. How much stress does that relieve surrounding this team?

    Personally I think this team is not in bad shape and you have to love the freedom and flexibility we have with our first round pick. Ya we are limited with our number of picks but the potential to land any number of players at 23 or lower if we can trade back who can immediately contribute is crazy and at the end of the day that's all you can ask for.

    Bottum line we have to trust what Dorsey and Reid are doing and assume they have a plan until they prove otherwise. I'm excited for draft day because I have absolutely zero idea what te chiefs will do. However all the people that could be available I dot see very many that the chiefs could take and I would be upset because they could all contribute. It's gumna be exciting and I can't wait to see what happens.

    I admire your optimism, but you’re pinning the hopes of this team on every late round draftee becoming a solid contributor or better. When does that ever happen? I expect Fisher to continue to improve as I do Cooper. Kelce I’m hopeful for.

    That doesn’t negate the instability on the OL. Two solid starters are replaced by question marks, so far. We still don’t have a starter at FS. The MLB and LE were replaced by lesser players. And we still have one of the worst WR corps in the league. It’s not enough if you want to compete with DEN.

    We can hope, not trust, the Reid & Dorsey nail this and get three starters out of this draft too. It’s not likely. I have no reason to have blind faith in either, yet. Reid ran Philly into the ground and Dorsey has done nothing except work for a great organization, just like Scott Pioli, the last “GM savior”.
    ...in my opinion

    Ummm ok

    They had a bad year Reids last year But I hardly call that running them into the ground. If that was the case they wouldn't have been back in the playoffs last year.

    9 playoff appearances, 4 consecutive NFC championships and a Super Bowl appearance = running them into the ground.

    How many here would really complain if Reid "ran the Chiefs into the ground" in a similar fashion?

    Matter of fact, the last time we got "run into the ground" in a similar fashion was under Marty and if I recall correctly at the end of the 2012 season there were a lot of people wishing Marty would come back and "run us into the ground" again.

    I suppose if you're okay with hamburger or even sirloin. I want porterhouse.

    Yeah...If that's what you call being run into the ground, I'm pretty cool with being run into the ground. Anyone here want to go back and do things the Pioli or Herm Edwards way?

    He was on a downhill trend since 2009. Some Philly fans will say he should have been let go after losing to NE in the SB.

    Commings was turning heads before his injury and I don't remember what I was reading a whole back about someone talking about Cstapano being a beast. I think u also have to remember that not ever started is an all pro. It's about getting the most out of people. If we can *** a few contributors from the draft at WR, interior line, and a pass rusher I think we are gimme be just fine. Maybe not beat the Broncos but their time will run out and we will be hitting stride.
