Will he shell out the dolla's? Only time will tell.

FA's aren't going to fix this team.....the only one I'd be real interested in is Lance Briggs and I highly doubt the Bears let him get away.

I don't know why much different should be expected as long as CP is calling the shots.

OL, DL, and WR are all weak this year so I'm not sure how much help is out there.

Basically the Chiefs need the young guys to step up and have one hell of a draft. IMO this is a 2 yr rebuilding project.

This has, no doubt, already been discussed and put to rest. But at the risk of duplicating mental effort and keyboard skill, are there any free agent LTs to look forward to this year?

Not many moves in FA, but I expect to see some, maybe on the OL or DL.

The Chiefs will have alot of money to spend this year it will be interesting to see if they spend it.

The cap is going up $7 million dollars to $109 million.

So we can expect results in year 20?

Yea we're gonna spend it........on a 30 year old TE.

CP has said they will have plenty of money even after signing Tony.

They had some dead money on the cap this year and also Simms and Hicks accounted for over $10+ million this year so cutting them will save us quite a bit.

I think we are in good shape money wise. I just don't think there are many good FA's out there this year.

He's a free agent. Steelers might resign him though. But if he hits the open market the Chiefs should throw the bank at him.

Personally I'd use the space to make alot of needed cuts then I'd see if Lance Briggs got into the market at all and if he did.....we'd have this conversation "so what do you want......ok you got it"

Why not? He's a stud. He'd instantly solve our swinging gate at RT problem. Then we could draft a LT and move Black to guard. PRESTO!

We aren't going to be able to draft a LT this year......it's just not going to pan out.

Woodrow Call

Briggs would be awesome. If the Chiefs let Mitchell go I could see CP go after Donnie Edwards to replace him.

Cato June maybe at OLB. He's decent in the Cover 2 but I'm not a big fan of his size or tackling ability.

Wow, and it only seems like a couple of days ago, this team looked like the Ganz/Mackovick/Levy Chiefs!

Gotta do something. The only guys on offense that are signed and you'd could consider building something around are Waters and LJ. I've been hearing alot of talk hear and on sports radio about him being a malcontent headed in the direction of TO. I don't know if that is really true. I think alot of his quotes are a "take it and run with it" type of things rather than him being a real problem guy. Waters is solid but looked like a Spaz on a few plays Saturday. Anything else is going to have to come from free agency or the draft (I include Gonzo in there).

On defense you have DJ, Allen, Hali, Pollard, Page, Mitchell (maybe). Other than that you can throw a match on the whole thing and start over IMO.

Two guys on offense and five on D, and they'd all be lucky to make a Pro Bowl. Just solid starters. What should we call these beginning of the do-over again guys? The lucky or original seven? (insert your cliche).

Why not? Is there some reason we can't move up and grab one?

Ugh.......we have HOLES everywhere. We are not 1 player away giving up picks for 1 man is not the answer for this team. We need to build a young core of players not have a 1 player draft.

What choice do they have? It is a lose-lose situation by your own admission. NO free agent OL especially LTs. You will have none worth the choice in the draft. If we do draft one they would take a while to develop.

So Mecca what is the solution, you have continued to say every option is the wrong one.

They have a lot time invested in Black, should they let him go?

You let him go......you see what happens in the draft if no one falls and nothing is there then you take your lumps for the season at the spot. We did that this year with Black we just do it with another young inexpensive player. Instead of paying Black money, I'd rather go with Will Svitek for a year than pay Black.

Isn't Svitek considered the future LT of the Chiefs? At least that is what DV thought.

Even if he sucks he's the same thing Black was, and he doesn't have a long term new contract so he can be easily replaced.

With Carl calling the shots, we will miss on the draft pick.

You know my biggest reason for wanting Carl gone is that he's be the one constant in this era of mediocrity. So it's time for change.

Having said that, I've been pretty happy with our last two 1st round draft picks.

He's taken the guys I want. Which is fun for me.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying I never miss... I thought Ron Dayne was the man way back when.

But the last two years have been pretty good.

I still think I could outdraft Carl.....

As long as you'd get a 6'5 WR in here you'd have my support.

... That and two starting DTs who combine for 700 lbs and we're good. lol.

This is all I'll say....we wouldn't have Larry Johnson, but we'd have Troy Polamalu, John Henderson and Brandon Lloyd.

i don't think he'll do anything but continue to let Carl run the team and make him money.


i will be very surprised to see him show any passion for the team.

It seems like New England and Philly, the two model franchises in my opinion, don't sign high-dollar free agents.

If Clark Hunt really wants to win, he won't go out and blow a ton of money on 30something free-agents -- he'll shit-can Carl and Herm.

We also wouldn't have Jared Allen, Pollard, Hali, or Page.


Personally, We need to think long and hard about trading down in this draft to accumulate more picks. We have so many holes to fill that a #24 pick just won't address. If Levi Brown falls to 24 then I'd be fine with staying there, but other than that, it wouldn't hurt us to trade down for an extra 2nd and 3rd. JMO.

From what I've read, this is a really deep draft for LB's. If Mitchell leaves in FA, we'll get a compensatory pick for him. Even a 5th round LB is going to be able to do the same things that Ka-whiff-a does---nothing.

If Brown isn't there, I'd like to see us trade down, accumulate a 2nd and a late third in the process...that would allow us to draft a guy like Doug Free (NIU, RT) at good value. We could also pick up a guy like Steve W. Smif (he ran for city council back in '93 out in Oakland...he also played WR for USC ;) ). Maybe we could get a guy like Justin Harrell in the second as well, especially since he's coming off an injury. Any two of those three picks would fill holes...RT, DT, WR.

Well within reason......

For the other guy I fully admit if I was picking we likely wouldn't have Allen, Pollard we wouldn't have.....Hali I'll say 50/50 I wasn't a big fan of drafting him and the guy I wanted was gone before our pick I would have taken him or Kiwanuka..and Page who knows that's a scout pick in the 7th.
