Well here we are almost through the first day of FA and what do we have to show for it? Nothing! I know what some of you will say, "Hey its only the first day, don't panic or the ever famous THE PLANET IS MELTING DOWN" But the fact is, in the NFL you have to have a plan. The chiefs don't. Any FA that leaves Arrowhead without a contract is GONE we won't have a chance. When is this front office going to learn to decide early who would best help this team and sign them. You think the ravens just decided this morning Mason would be a good fit? No! They picked him out weeks ago and said "thats our guy, we have to sign him no matter what." The chiefs just want to feel every thing out and wait till the dust settles. You know what that gets you, 35 YEARS OF NOTHING! Jesus christ how long do we have to put up with this crap?

I know many here hate references to the Patriots, but let me tell you -- the Patriots NEVER do anything the first few days of free agency. That's for overpaying schmucks like Snyder's Redskins.


Ditto that for the Iggles (although maybe last year they moved quick on Kearse).

The smart teams scoop up guys at a reasonable price, rather than just destroying their cap to be on the front page in March.

The Pats are excellent during the draft. The Chiefs are pretty mediocre.

I heard that the Chiefs have asked Rolle and Trotter to wait until June to make their decision because KC will have more cap room available at that time once Morton is cut.

Don't get upset until you hear that we haven't signed any of them. All 3 of them know we are seriously interested or they wouldn't be here the first day of FA. We are going to spend quality time with the players and make sure we have a feel for the player we want. I'm impatient as hell, but realize this is going to take some time.

This would be great for us but you see WE CAN'T DRAFT LIKE THE PATRIOTS! We have no choice to get players through FA but we better do it quick. The best LB and CB's will be signed by this weekend.

Wow maybe he'll give them all a kiss on the cheek too. Bottom line is the bottom line! Thats all it takes. Wooing the FA worked out for us real well with the Hugh douglass signing too. No I agree I'm glad we didn't sign him but the fact is Dick took him to dinner and played kissy face with him for days, you know what it got him? Nothing!

Thats right. Wooing FA is the outdated. Nowadays you gotta grab'em and by the huevos, force a pen into their hand and squeeze until they sign on the dotted line.

ROFL We'll be able to see how the draft played out by then too. It makes perfect sense.

Yeah, actually, that is something of a point... :hmmm:

And I have repeatedly said on here that I think you guys have a relatively limited window of opportunity to win it all while you have this ridiculously awesome offense...

Maybe you should move quick and worry about cap issues after you (hopefully, as long as it's not at the Patriots' expense) win a Lombardi. :shrug:

You don't know that. Maybe Dick got all he wanted from Hugh.... I'll bet he was :deevee:when Hugh left him.

Even though I am an impatient Mofo this thread is ridiculous. Especially with all of the news that is coming out at 1 Arrowhead Drive with Law, Hartwell, Rolle, and Trotter all coming in as we speak.

Is Law coming in now too? What the hell is going on? What color is the interior of his limosine?

Nor can I. Then again, I have only a VERY limited understanding of this entire process.

I once again depend on CP to educate me. And that's rather frightening to contemplate...

Aside from the fact that blowing a gasket for no news on the FIRST day of FA is just a little rediculous, unless I missed something, FA hasn't been around for 35 years.

Heres one more to add to the signings.....

PIERCE POISED TO SIGN WITH GIANTS
*
The NFC East linebacker shuffle will continue.
*
In past years, guys like Jeremiah Trotter and Jessie Armstead jumped from one NFC East squad to another, with both coming to the Redskins.
*
This time around, the linebacker is walking from Washington to New York.
*
A league source tells us that the Giants soon will sign free-agent linebacker Antonio Pierce to a six-year contract worth up to $25 million.
*
Pierce, an undrafted free agent signed by the Redskins in 2001, had 112 tackles, one sack and two interceptions in 2004, his fourth season as a pro.* He is generally considered to be the top linebacker available in free agency this year.*

I sure hope the chiefs drag their feet some more. Only two decent LB's left on the market. I sure hope DV's enjoying his dinner.
