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.
