I really feel we will be four games better, but if I had to put money on it, I'd say three games better. The offensive coordinator's gotta be good for a win or two, and if LJ is healthy for a full season, another win or two. In a perfect world, Connar Barth is all world and we don't lose three to missed field goals like last year (man I've just about got us going undefeated, it's fun to dream).

getting better is a good thing. 4 wins last yr, 8 wins this yr, maybe 12 wins and a run in the playoffs the following year.

whoever thinks that a top 5 pick in next years draft is the answer is a f*cking moron. what pick was Dbowe? what pick was TG? What pick was LJ? What pick was JA? shall i keep going? consistant improvement is the answer.

I believe we will appear much improved at times, but very inconsistent. So far as I can tell, that's the most frustrating part about fielding a young team. You never know what you're getting from week to week. Akin to observing a one-eyed dog with a baloney tail in a very crowded beaver house, there will be many comments like, "What the hell are you doing?"

I think most people here would switch teams with Arizona in the drop of a hat..Cincy also hasn't consistently picked in the top 10 lately....

I think the people expecting the Chiefs to be ok are the ones that are use to thinking 7-9 is a bad year, odds are this team will at best win 3-5 games.

This is the one season I've ever NOT cared about wins and losses.

I just want to see individual and team improvement over the course of the season.

While I figure them to be a 4-6 win team, I'd be perfectly content with fewer wins if you could see that the team was getting better as they gained experience. Too many young players to expect much. But, if everyone pans out, and we have another draft in 2009 like 2008....2010 could be the beginnings of some great things.

I'm willing to wait.

While I do agree with you, STL and NE had no idea prior to that season that Warner and Brady would become, well, Warner and Brady. It was just as much a shock to them as it would be to us if Croyle had a phenomenal year.

It's all gonna depend on the rookies. If Albert comes out and pancakes alot of the guys that line up against him, if Franklin comes in and provides an opening while everyone is watching DBowe and TG, if Dorsey turns into the beast he's expected to be etc,etc,etc. If most stumble we go 4-12, if most play well then 6-10/7-9 with big hopes for next year. If they all come out guns ablazin' they might sneak in the back door. I see 6-10 with big hopes for next year and maybe a top 15 pick in round 1.

I look at the schedule and I see a few things that hurt......

The beatable teams we have are mostly on the road, that hurts, we're in the AFC, we have a NFC division that may produce 2 playoff teams and several more contenders...

If you honestly think the Chiefs are going to win games go through their schedule and show me, I'm not willing to count any road game as a win, this team has always struggled on the road and bad teams struggle extremely on the road, that Falcons game that everyone thinks can be a win can easily be a loss since it's not here.

I think the people expecting the Chiefs to be ok are the ones that are use to thinking 7-9 is a bad year, odds are this team will at best win 3-5 games.

I disagree. I think our floor is 4 games barring ALOT of injuries. I mean, just look at some of the games on our schedule this year:

@ Oakland- 4-12 last year
Oakland- 4-12
Miami- 1-15
@ New York- 5-11
Buffalo- 7-9
@ Denver- 7-9
Denver- 7-9
@ Atlanta- 4-12
@ Carolina- 7-9
New Orleans- 7-9

We play 10 games against teams with losing records last year. Now you can probably say most of those teams improved this year but I would say so have we. Oakland, Atlanta, Miami, and New York are teams that I really don't see being any better than us. Also, look at the rush defense for each of those teams.

Oakland- 31st
Miami- 32nd
New York- 29th
Buffalo- 25th
Denver- 30th
Atlanta- 26th
Carolina- 18th
New Orleans- 13th

Most of those teams are at the bottom of the NFL in rush defense. Granted so were we but I like our chances with a healthy Larry Johnson and an improved offensive line to run all over most of those teams.

I see no reason why we can't see a game or two improvement over last years record. I also wouldn't be surprised to see a game like last years game at San Diego where we surprise everybody and beat a team we seem to have no business beating.

I'm not that pessimistic about the road games, considering 2 of our 4 wins were on the road, against division rivals, no less.

I'll break it down this way:

No Chance: New England

Less than 25% chance: Tennesee, Tampa, New Orleans, San Diego, @ San Diego, @ Denver, @ Cincinnati

Toss up: Denver, Buffalo, @ Carolina, @ Jets, @ Oakland

Should win: Oakland, Miami, @ Atlanta

Cincinnati was supposed to be an offensive heavy team last year and while they still got their yards they couldn't score very often on us.

I guess I just haven't given up on this team before training camp or the season has even started. For all we know the offense could be even better than anybody expects. With guys like Tony Gonzalez, Dwayne Bowe, and Larry Johnson as well as rookies like Brad Cottam, Will Franklin, and Jammal Charles we certainly have the skill position players to put up some points. It all comes down to the offensive line being improved and Croyle being better. I assume you have no faith in either of those happening.

The Kansas City Chiefs will roll into town in a dense, whirling fog of chaff and dust, stomping into a butcherly mush all who dare cross our path, hurling our pitiable foes into the air with our giant noses, impaling both guilty and innocent alike with our enormous teeth, and spraying our backs with river water.

I dont have alot of faith in Croyle either, but hes who we are stuck with so ill root for him to get better. If he sucks this year, ill be rooting for the Chiefs to draft a top QB next year.

If Croyle sucks this year through the first half of the season and hes the only part of the team thats playing bad, i firmly expect to see Huard or some other vet (Leftwich perhaps?) in there. Especially if by some miracle we still have a playoff shot.

But even you can admit if hes used properly, he can still be a highly effective back.

I mentioned in another thread that they need to limit him to 20-25 carries tops and to around 1200-1400 yards a year.

Give those extra carries and yards to Kolby and Charles. Extend his career by 3-4 years.

Tomlinson usually averages around 330 carries a year.

Probably helped him be more effective long term.

I think the Chiefs will be just as bad as last year.

If anything, maybe a slight improvement? 5 or 6 wins thats it.

The team is just too young. A really young team will have it's share of growing pains. Young teams do make a lot of mistakes, and I expect that from the Chiefs this year.

I think having a good draft is a necessity for this franchise to improve and have some sort of foundation built for itself. Drafting a DT, and a LT are good starts, hopefully those guys will be good because those postions are key to building a good team.

I just don't see it this year. Unless Croyle surprises like Derrick Anderson did last year, and if Brandon Albert becomes the next Joe Thomas in this draft year. But those are some high odds for that to happen.

I don't like the coaching in particular. I think the overall game planning, play calling, and lack of execution in performance on the football field are what killed this team last year, and I anticipate the same thing will happen this year.

and if all fails......we draft a QB to continue to build the team

Maybe the Chiefs are better off getting Brett Favre?

And then next year you draft BPA.

The QB class is weak next year. But hey you never know? what do I know?:shrug:

I agree with you. As a coach I don't think he can do it.

But I think he will help in the overall evaluation and scouting process? Recruiting better players out of the collegiate level.

There are some pros and cons to that. You can do draft good players out of college, but if your coach isn't that good? kinda like a catch 22?

better hope the guys the Chiefs draft are prepared up and comers. Blue chippers I'd say.

A good NFL head coach will surround himself with top notch assistants. Look at Super Bowl or consistant playoff winning teams. Other teams always want to raid their position coaches.

Has Herm ever really surrounded himself with top assistants???

Things can change over the course of a year though. Nobody thought Matt Ryan was a top 5 pick a year ago. For all we know guys like Matthew Stafford, Rudy Carpenter, Curtis Painter, etc. could establish themselves as top quarterbacks.

Although hopefully Brodie Croyle does enough for us to not need one.

Yes he has..Dick Curl..lol

just being sarcastic there. you gotta point.

He hasn't really? Donnie Henderson is a decent defensive coordinator and so is Gun.

Hopefully Chan Gailey can be an upgrade? they're gonna need him to be.

Nothing. At least i hope not. But hes about the biggest "name assistant" Herm has ever had.

We win four games max this year, but it will be worth it in two years or so, if they can build something worth watching.

You're right. Lets hope Brodie can become a good one. There gonna need him to be. But I think he is gonna need all the help he can get. I really hope Albert can be a great player for the Chiefs. They really need a top flight OLineman. LJ should improve the running game. And I even think have Chan Gailey will help do wonders for the running game.

that is a positive for a quarterback. the saying goes, a QB's best friend is a good running game, and of course a good offensive line.

*A running game will open things up for your QB. And when Brodie had time to throw the ball, he was pretty good.

Again, I don't see how 4 games should be our max. Not when we were sitting at 4-3 a year ago and then lost 9 straight once LJ went down. With a healthy LJ back I think we are improved at just about every position except for defensive end. I think our ceiling is 6, MAYBE 7 wins. But if I had to guess I would say 6-10 for us.

And why is that? Herm Edwards teams are usually very disciplined teams. We are certainly not the first team to go young.

Too many plays for negative yards will do it, Mr. kcchiefsus. If, for example, we start on the 50 and run 3 consecutive plays for a total of 150 negative yards, they'll have to spot the ball somewhere in the parking lot and that's bound to lead to delay of game.

We may end up winning that many, but it's not impossible to pull out more.

Four Max? doubt it. Fourish? Likely.

Cincinnati was supposed to be an offensive heavy team last year and while they still got their yards they couldn't score very often on us.

I guess I just haven't given up on this team before training camp or the season has even started. For all we know the offense could be even better than anybody expects. With guys like Tony Gonzalez, Dwayne Bowe, and Larry Johnson as well as rookies like Brad Cottam, Will Franklin, and Jammal Charles we certainly have the skill position players to put up some points. It all comes down to the offensive line being improved and Croyle being better. I assume you have no faith in either of those happening.
None of those guys went to USC.

I actually picked the Chiefs to be WORSE than last year way back in this thread. I had them going 3-13. I knew they would be bad, but looks like they're gonna be even worse than I thought. Hard to believe when I went into the season expecting just 3 wins... :doh!:

Actually, I agree with the original post. I don't think that we are as bad as last year. I think that there were several games this year that could have gone the other way fairly easy. But it is what it is. Our record is worse and maybe our draft pick is higher, at least by one. I have some optimism as well. I think we need to start with the entire coaching staff....clean house. Then maybe a quarterback depending on who's available, draft or otherwise....Use LJ in the offseason to acquire some stud offensive line men. then build from the trenches out in the draft, beginning with the offensive line.
