Here's to NOT doing a repeat of last year.. :toast:

The last line about sums it up:

Status quo = A loss.

5. Kansas City -- The Chiefs have only truly lost ground in the sense that they haven't gained any yet. Especially on defense, where they desperately need playmakers. They've visited with middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter, but he re-signed with Philadelphia. Baltimore linebacker Edgerton Hartwell and Tennessee cornerback Samari Rolle also have passed through the team's offices at Arrowhead Stadium, but no quick deals have been forthcoming.

Cornerback Ty Law remains on the radar screen and might visit next week. Pittsburgh linebacker Kendrell Bell and Tampa Bay safety Dwight Smith were in Kansas City on Friday. On offense, the Chiefs have had a defection, with Blaylock leaving for the Jets. The bottom line is simple: The status quo equals a loss for Kansas City.

So far it's the same status-quo, but if we land Rolle and Hartwell, it will be well worth the wait.

Somehow, I have a sneaking suspicion(has anyone seen an unsneaking suspicion? :hmmm: ) that we are going to sign Law, also.....

No facts to go on, just a lot of blind hope... :sulk:

SI hates us because they put us on the cover to win the SuperBowl and they look smart.... right up until that home playoff loss.

Notice I said "also", as in, in addition to Rolle and Hartwell (plus 2 great draft choices for once)...

Also, nice addition to your sig....excuse me while I go study it.... :thumb:

FA isn't over yet.

Shouldn't SI stick to using up that valuable page real estate on Calvin Klein underwear, pimping Turkish cigarettes and/or The Official Jeans of Dale Earnhardt?

Opinion(s) are like...

Hey. What do you think about going to Sluggo's for the draft? If we could get a crew down there that day it would be cool. I probably won't make it but maybe once or twice next year with going out of state for school.

Well we aren't alone....they rank us right up there with the packers, jets, vikings, and superbowl champions new england. At least we are keeping good company.....ROFL

It may sound silly, but I think that's the reason the Chiefs rarely get any play in the media. So many times ,they've jumped on the bandwagon based on one season, touting us as a force to be reckoned with in the coming year, only to have us fall flat on our faces. The Chiefs have knack for making these guys look stupid(er), by having a crap year after every good year.

Might be just a little early to be putting out FA ratings with so much talent still available to sign/trade for...

Lighten up fellas...we're only a few days into FA. It's a little early to light the torches and storm the castle... That said, I'll lead the charge if this FA period ends like last year.

What's taking Carl so long is that he's trying to structure the deal so he can fit Hartwell under the cap, too.

But he needs to hurry. In FA, every hour that goes by, you truly do lose.

Maybe the two best LB and CB prospects are still out there yet to be signed, and they're handing out FA grades?

DV and Carl- Leslie Neilson Naked Gun style---



DV and Carl-- We won't rest until we get Rolle and Hartwell signed.

Media-- That's great news...

Carl to DV-- Now lets go get a bite to eat.

You are right...it just started. But do you wanna wait and let all the good prospects pass us by and see what's left. No you go out and sign them right now....:deevee:

And if we sign Rolle, Hartwell, and Smith we'll be among the top winners in FA. Sports Illustrated can blow me. :harumph:

Dude, seriously, it's all just a smokescreen. Everybody knows Carl's real targets are Nick Harper, Jason Belser, and Harry Carson....

Really ... it's a win for KC. Carl is helping drive up the price tags on these players, putting the other teams in a cap crunch.
