With Vermeil stating he will retire next year, CP being in the last year of his contract and Vermeil giving his coaching staff the blessing to leave if they wish, is 2005 a lame duck year for the Chiefs?

If you were a defensive free agent why would you want to come to KC? You would have to move your family and you would have little job security with a new coach and perhaps new GM at the end of your first year. Plus, it's Kansas City and the team/town hasn't always been able to attract the bigger free agents (not that that is always a bad thing).

If I were a defensive free agent I probably wouldn't want to come here anyway.

I'm beginning to think that it is.

Honestly, I don't care anymore. I was ready for a COMPLETE rebuild about 1996. I'm more than ready for it now.

I was thinking about this earlier this morning as I was reading the articles from the Star. Will the current players play hard for DV in '05 if they know it's his last year? In any other situation, GM's go to great lengths to prevent coaches from entering the last season of their contract without an extension.

But OTOH, maybe they'll rally around the "win one for DV in his last go-round" mantra.

If we are going to rebuild in 2006, I really hope no high dollar FA's come to KC next season. Clear the books out and start over from scratch.

In fact, I almost wish we were going to to that this season. JMO.

i don't like to speculate but if we don't win it next year we can still say

"There is always next year!"

i just hope im not still saying that 50 years from now
