    Default we got a perfect schedule for this year!!!

    The Chiefs have no idea who they will have as a QB. I've said this before, but
    we need to give Croyle the ball and see if the kid can play. We also need to
    get as many rookie and second year players STARTING on the field as possible. I would much rather have our young players fire tested with a schedule like the 2007 schedule than get a cake schedule for these guys and let them waste it with inexperience. I am much more excited about this season and the opportunity presented to the Chiefs than i have been in a really long time. It's not filled with a false sense of optomism either!! I hope we get to see our young players step up in a rebuilding year with an awful schedule and become the future of this franchise!! Let's look at this!!:

    This is what our team COULD look like if we take advantage of this season.

    * - second year starters

    DEFENSE:
    • Tamba Hali* DE
    • Bernard Pollard* SS
    • Jarrad Page* FS
    • Marcus Maxey* CB (if he can play AT ALL)
    • Derrick Johnson LB (3rd year starter)
    • Donnie Edwards LB
    • Napoleon Harris LB (6th year starter)
    • Jarred Allen DE (4th year player)
    • Alphonso Boone DT
    • Ron Edwards DT
    • CB, DT, DT
    This leaves 3 positions to fill with vets like Greg Wesley, Pat Surtain, Ty Law, Ryan Sims, Kendrell Bell, Eric Hicks, Jimmy Wilkerson, Keyaron Fox and Kris Griffin. Not to mention one or maybe two of our first three round draft picks. I'm probably forgetting someone, but you get the point. we could watch this defense grow up together!!! LET THEM PLAY!!!

    OFFENSE:
    • Brodie Croyle QB *
    • Larry Johnson RB (second year as starter)
    • Tony Gonzales TE
    • Chris Terry OT
    • Tre Stallings OG (if shields retires)
    • Casey Wiegman C (he won't retire yet)
    • Brian Waters OG
    • Damion Mcintosh OT
    • Jeff Webb WR *
    • Eddie Kennison WR
    • Samie Parker WR
    • Boomer Grigsby FB (3rd year player)
    While the offensive side of the ball is much more experienced, there is still room to infuse youth. Let Webb fly. Draft another WR and let Kennison and Dante Hall go. We've still got Rod Gardner here. He will be going into his 4th or 5th year. He was a FIRST ROUND PICK!! While Mcintosh fills a hole, he's not the stud left OT we need. We could either draft one or plug in Ramiro Pruneda from Mexico and see if he's worth the roster spot.

    Bottom line, there are way too many questions on this team for us to expect a deep playoff run with the schedule we were handed this year. If we win a few games, great. I hate to see the Chiefs lose more than anything. Hell, i put a hole in my wall when the Chargers scored that 80+ TD run after the Pollard block punt the play before. Believe me, I HATE when the Chiefs lose, but we should look at this year as a developement year and look for a MONSTER season in 08. By then, we'll have at least 14 new players aquired though the draft on our roster who aren't there as of this writing. they will be in their first 2 years and our young players now will only be in thier 4th or 5th.

    We also will have the option to draft a QB early in the first round of the 08 draft if Croyle doesn't pan out. This should be the focus of the Kansas City Chiefs and all Chief fans. Until we stop supporting mediocre teams, Carl is gonna keep doing business as usual and sell a crap load of tickets for a .500 ball club. As a fan base, we should cry out for a championship quality team every year but have the patience to realize that it may take a year or two to become a perenial powerhouse.

    Before Mr. Shields departed, I thought we would take the AFC West. The raiders - well, they are the raiders and will have a rookie qb. The donks - their starting QB had a losing record, they had a losing record @ home, they lost people in free agency (and some how have 2 home Monday night games?!?!?! -- but that is another thread). the charges have a head coach with a losing record. I really thought we could take it by default. Now it all depends on filling that hole Shields left.

    I think that we are clearly in a rebuilding year, and have few if any expectations for our offense.

    Sure hope that is the ONLY hole that will need filling...

    Hell, if you trade L.J., maybe Shields reconsiders.

    if we beat the faiders twice, the donks and bolts at least once it would take some of the sting off a bad year.
    i can remember what a chief super bowl team looks like! ......

    Yes, Wolfpack, I have refrained from saying it, but this season looks like it is gonna have me waiting a full year, for next seasons draft.

    I know it sucks that Shields is gone...but we are still gonna kick some ***, maybe just not as hard. Who's gonna stop us...the donks? faders? no one is gonna get in our way. I am not giving up until it is over, not before it begins. If i have to play I will.

    Carl; is that you??? LOL!
    j/k

    Good to see a "voice", so to speak, of optimism, but I have to agree that I'm looking for very little in the way of offensive production this year.
