Has anyoneever wondered how good this team will be if Tony G puts up pro bowl numbers (again) and LJ goes for 1750 yards (again) and Priest comes back and cathes 85 passes out of the backfield and the offensive line that surprises everyone...and we have the defence we all expect. That is the Chiefs team that I will be watching this season. If we end up 6-10 then I will at least know what I am complaining about.

    DING,DING!!!!

    I'm not about saying that our offense is bad. What I have been complaining about, are the personell moves, that have been made, during this offseason. Moves that, I fear, will diminish our offensive production.

    I like how the defense is taking shape. I don't expect Herm to deliver a defense, as dominant as what the Steelers, Ravens, or Bears have enjoyed, recently, though I do expect we will rank, in the top five, defensively, soon.

    Given such a defense, combined with the lack-lustre offense that Herm has shown the ability to put on the field, I would never expect to see the Chiefs win a Super Bowl. Obviously, it would be possible, just unlikely. When the Ravens won it, their defense was considered among the best ever assembled. And, they were still, a tremendous underdog, at the beginning of the playoffs. They overachieved, immensely. Even the Steelers, who had more offensive production than any Herm offense, had to "walk on water" to win it all.

    Maybe it's just me, but I kinda like being a "front-runner". If you look at the history, of the NFL, those "front-runners" tend to win more Super Bowls, than the underdogs do.

    Fact is, changing from the Vermiel offense, one of the most prolific offenses ever fielded, is like going to the Ravens and deciding that you need to change-up the defense. Not that it has all been Hermies fault. I realize that retirement and a lack of Vermiel-offense knowledge, contributes. So, while Herm appears to recieve the majority of my ire, on the situation, he is not alone, on my list.

    So, basically, I know what I am complaining about. And I think you do too.

    So is the offence bad or are they good. You seem to have two points of view depending on what fits you argument at the time. Last time I checked the offence on the field was Vermeils offence. Herm inheirited last years team. There were not a lot of changes made, and Solari was calling the plays was he not? Old offensive line coach that wants to run the ball a lot? I know that it is Herm's gameplan but it was Vermeils offence on the field last year that was "lack lustre" I agree that maybe we could have done more as far as the personnel on the O-line, but then we would be talking about how we did not address the D-line or the WR position. I did not get to see the draft this year, but who were the available O-linemen in the 23rd spot? There is no need to waste a pick on a player who is no good just to say that we plugged a hole. Maybe there was no talent there. (again I did not get to see the draft so I do not know) As far as changing the Vermeil offence (like the Ravens defence), if we kept all those guys together we would still be looking at a crap defence for another year, hoping to outscore everyone....which obviously did not work. Unfortunately replacing Roaf and Shilds is not an easy task, but maybe McIntosh will be the new Roaf in town. It is not like our line has never played good foorball before. I am still saying that I am going to give this team a chance to show what they can do before I write them off for the season.

    Actually, if I remember correctly, the top notch "O" lineman was still there into the second and third rounds of the of the draft. Of course I could be mistaken.

    If that is the case then i agree we should have made some better choices, but then maybe our defensive line is a little weaker. I just wish we could have gotten more kickers. :)
