This is how I would do things.

1. The Chiefs finish 6-10, and they are picking at #10.

2. I would retain Romeo Crennel as coach, and trade my first round pick for QB Peyton Manning, assuming he returns at something very, very close to 100%. I would then consult with Peyton to locate an OC he'd like to work with.

That first round pick would come with a second pick in 2012 depending on his performance.

3. I tender ILB Jovan Belcher & K Ryan Succop.

4. I franchise WR Dwayne Bowe, a big deal pending a la Tamba Hali.

5. I outbid everybody on the market to re-sign CB Brandon Carr to a multi-year deal. Ditto Wallace Gilberry, although the deal will be considerably smaller.

6. I re-sign FB Le'Ron McClain, TE Leonard Pope, ILB Brandon Siler, OLB Andy Studebaker, CB Travis Daniels, and S Jon McGraw to one-year deals.

7. I let go of the following players: RB Thomas Jones, WR Jerheme Urban, OT Barry Richardson, OG Ryan Lilja, C Casey Wiegmann, NT Kelly Gregg.

8. I trade Cassel off this offseason for a 4th rounder.

I know I am Super Bowl bound, so I sign the shit out of the following free agents, aside from Manning:

QB David Carr: 2 years, $5 million
RB Jason Snelling: 4 years, $12 million
WR Anthony Gonzalez: 1 year, $2 million
TE David Nelson: 3 years, $12 million
C Chris Myers: 5 years, $22 million, $5 million guaranteed
OG John Greco: 1 year, $1 million
S Brodney Pool: 1 year, $2 million

With my available draft picks.

2. NT Dontari Poe, Memphis
2 (trade up w/ 3rd & 4th). OT Matt Reynolds, BYU
4. OLB Mychal Kendricks, California
5. FS Aaron Henry, Wisconsin
6. C T-Bob Hebert, LSU
7. OT Mike Remmers, Oregon State

Which gives us a roster of:

QB: Manning, Carr, Stanzi
RB: Charles, Jennings, McCluster, Battle
FB: McClain

WR: Bowe, Breaston, Baldwin, Gonzalez, McCluster, Copper
TE: Moeaki, Nelson, Pope

LT: Albert, Reynolds
LG: Hudson, Greco
C: Myers, Hebert
RG: Asamoah, Greco
RT: Reynolds, Maneri, Remmers

DE: Dorsey, Bailey
NT: Poe, Gordon, Powe
DE: Jackson, Gilberry, Gordon

OLB: Hali, Sheffield
ILB: Belcher, Siler
ILB: Johnson, Williams
OLB: Houston, Kendricks, Studebaker

CB: Flowers, Carr, Arenas, Daniels, Brown
S: Berry, Lewis, Poole, Henry, McGraw

K: Succop
P: Colquitt
LS: Gafford
KR: Arenas, McCluster
PR: Arenas, McCluster

Really? You guys don't want Jason Snelling?

You guys are idiots. Snelling is a big, physical back who can carry the load.

He has very little tread on his tires, and has great burst around the edges.

We can't have another year of Charles carrying the load. It needs to be shared.

Turner wont be back, be very surprised to see Snelling make it out of Atlanta.

Not at all.

Simply a great example of what happens when you put a kid out there with no protection...

Carr - strong sharp arm at Fresno

Cassel - always a floater...

Deff not the kind of qb we need though... We need a FRANCHISE qb. Carr is deff not the answer.

nor is Ryan Leaf...

Once you ruin a young QB by having him smashed into the ground over and over and over by 300 pound monsters, not much is left...

Hence, before you spend a really high pick on a QB, make sure your OL is good...

Ryan Leaf destroyed himself. Not the Chargers.

David Carr held the ball too long. His protection problems were self inflicted. A lot like Cassel.

Snelling isn't actually a great short yardage back. I know we need a new RB, but more importantly, we need a guy who can get that 3rd or 4th and short for us. Both Jones and Battle have proved they are not that guy.

Also, I know Matt Reynolds is good, but are you sure he doesn't last until the 3rd? He will be 26yrs old by the start of the 2012 NFL season. Would make a great RT though...

He did both...

There is some truth to that. The Texans originally got Tony Boselli from the Jags in the expansion draft. Boselli never played a down for Houston. He was supposed to protect Carr's blindside.

Carr's protection sucked. Carr was a rookie who required a good supporting cast, and didn't get one...

I dunno if you happen to remember Peyton and Troy getting pounded their first few years in the NFL.

Not saying that your wrong, but sometimes they don't fail.

Too much confusion with Poe and Powe. Don't like it.

Although if we went to a jumbo package and put both of those guys on the field at the same time, we could say, "UH OH HERE COME THE POWE POE!"

Okay. Changed my mind. I like it.

Troy did.

Peyton had two First Rounders at OT and Marvin Harrison...

Like many rookie QBs, Peyton threw a lot of picks, but I don't believe he took that much of a beat down, not like Dave Carr and Aikman his first year...

Perhaps the Chiefs need a little more POW and a little less Powe/Poe....

A first for Peyton?

He will cost much more.

I'd still keep Lilja and Richardson.

After 3 neck surgeries? He might not make it 3 games. That and his contract is a turnoff.

The Colts will not trade Peyton Manning. If they pick up his $28 million option, how are you going to trade him after that?
