A think a player retiring saves you more than cutting a player.

Depending on what Abraham was making, they could be in really good shape.

Rhonda Moss is a tool. Or plays with one. Whichever. :)

not really ... it's the same as a cut

it depends on how his contract was structured



the only real difference is that i think the team can delay filling the retirement papers for quite awhile ... which can help them short term.

I bet it's not.

They will be the same ones yelling at the TV while Ambrose/McCleon/Sapp get torched playing next to Surtain.

I love the argument that, "we're going to be in cap hell if we sign Ty Law."

Who cares at this point? We are going to be in a transition period anyway with the veterans we have retiring and it's not like we've won a playoff game in 13 years.

I just don't get the logic. Yeah, Law was hurt, but he looked pretty good in that workout and it's not like this defense doesn't need 2 All-Pros at cornerback with the receivers in this division.

I just don't get the Anti-Law crowd. We aren't the Baltimore Ravens.

i don't understand how anyone could NOT want ty law added.


i understand the injury concern... but as long as the chiefs doctors do a full evaluation about that then i see no good reason why to not want him.

Naw, in Gaz's case he'll just blame it on our offense for not scoring enough points to make up for it. ("We can't expect anything from our crappy secondary, therefore it's imperative that the offense score every time it touches to the ball. This is simply the reality of the situation, the hand we've been dealt ...") ;)

luv to read Gaz's stuff....

but he has been drinking heavily for a couple of weeks now...

first he rates War of the Worlds as a great flick...

then he pans Batman Begins...

and now this.

The 12 steps are right around the corner.

Yeah Gaz you're a fool. KC should spend every penny they have on Ty Law.
The window is closing, the future is now, there is no tomorrow........
Don't worry about why New England didn't sign him back, they don't know anything about personnel. Don't question that injury, it's just fine. And really there are no character issues to speak of.
What's a little bit of cap hell compared to all of that?
:evil:
