View Full Version : Chiefs 2012 Offseason

Well I'm an optimist, so I am gonna go on a little rant here and make a bold statement.

The 2012 offseason will be the best offseason the Chiefs have had under Pioli. This will be the one that permanently makes us contenders for a good couple years. Here is whats going down.

Stanzi will turn out to be the guy. I have been watching alot of his old tape, he has the tools. He's gonna beat out Cassel in a training camp battle.

The 3 ACL guys will come back full strength. By the time the season rolls around they will have had a full year to recover. They will be fine.

The d will get a playmaker back. Pioli will bring in Paul Soliai from Miami to play NT with Poe and Gordon. In the second round of the draft Hightower will fall to us.

The offense, now having their quarterback, gets its playmaker back. We draft Richardson in the first round giving us a great combo of backs. We pick up a RT in the third round. We bring in an all pro in Carl Nicks from New Orleans who can't afford to pay him. We can.

We draft depth on both sides of the ball and bring in some solid backup free agents.

We resign Carr and Bowe.

This young team has it's quarterback and grows together, becoming a power in the AFC.

Sorry if this upsets anyone, but Pioli's finally gonna get it right.

Discuss.

I got a good feeling about Stanzi too. It's a matter of him taking advantage of any opportunity he gets that impress the coaches and make a case during preseason to be the guy.

Still wish and hope we snag another QB in the draft but I have my doubts it would be a high rounder, but we still need to draft one for compitition sake.

Our defense is going be beast regardless of what the offense does so am exited for the return of Eric Berry the most.

Getting production out of Jamaal Charles again is going make us that much better & complimited with McCluster is going be fun to watch.

It still all starts with the play of the QB & I'm really hoping Stanzi or next QB from the draft gets major consideration for the start of the season. Out with Cassel ASAP.

If this is the case - and it may be - then why wasn't he playing during the season? I can't think of a greater potential opportunity handed to any quarterback. All he had to do was beat out Tyler Palko.

Or were you talking about next preseason rather than last preseason?

Stay with me here.

It has been said that Haley was a Cassel guy. Maybe he didn't wanna play Stanzi as he thought he would create real controversy. He thought he would for sure be back next year and wanted Cassel to start?

Yeah I dunno what to think about that, I just think that their minds were made up that Stanzi wouldn't play this season at all. No matter what happened.

I think they wanted him to sit and learn for a year.

I think they wanted him to sit and learn for a year.What I have heard (and it's just rumor, so it's essentially baseless/worthless...) is that they actually gave him every opportunity to take the job during the latter half of the season. And that they were ultimately disappointed with his development in 2011.

But who knows. I'm surely not in the locker room.

This is an unpopular explanation since it suggests that the hope that people have attached to Stanzi is misplaced (and that the Chiefs are therefore no closer to having a QB than they've been in 20 years), but it is by far the most likely explanation. Far simpler and more plausible than the numerous conspiracy theories.

He didn't get on the field because he looked like dogshit, basically.

On the original topic, I really don't like the idea of drafting any RB in the first round. The lifespan for the position is too short. I want to look for a position that can field a cornerstone player for a decade, rather than one where you're a good bit less likely to see the player perform at all past his rookie contract.

My dream is and continues to be a first round quarterback that becomes the face of the franchise until the early to mid 2020s.

O.city
01-13-2012, 05:48 PM
That may be true about Stanzi. However, I just think with him being a 5th rounder and having to offseason, it was determined that he wouldn't play a down this year unless there was no other way around it.

I wish people would stop and consider that maybe they had no intention of playing him during 2011 no matter what the cost. 2012 is when we will find out what the kid has.

I think everyone has "considered" that. There are a number of explanations that plausibly answer the question "where was Stanzi". That is indeed one of them.

Another is that management thought he looked inferior to Tyler Palko and Kyle Orton.

I'm attempting to analyse the situation using the little evidence we have available (facts).

I would love nothing more than to see this guy come out and make the spot his own in 2012.

But the facts are that the Chiefs elected to play Tyler Palko and a barely initiated Kyle Orton instead of this guy. Everything else is speculation.

The guy couldn't cut it in Canada or in some low level league in the USA. What the fuck did Haley see in him to make him think he could possibly lead any NFL team. Sorry but I place Palko ALL on Haley.

All I did was pass on some information that I've heard, which might or might not explain why he didn't play during the 2011 regular season. Which is in no way different from you saying something along the lines of "they decided they weren't going to play him at all until 2012". It's just providing a potential explanation for a question that people periodically ask, that being why he didn't play. It does not, however, mean that I'm saying that he sucks or that he'll never be any good, it only means that, if the information is valid (which it may not be...), then he did not develop *in 2011* as they had hoped that he would.

That's all.

And in fact, in the interest of full disclosure, my own secret hope is that the information is wholly incorrect, because I think the NFL as a whole does a tremendous job of ruining quarterbacks by pushing them onto the field too quickly. So I really actually do sincerely hope that they had no intention of ever playing him in 2011, and that in the end they did not have any expectations in terms of development for a 5th round draft pick.

However, that is unfortunately not what I have "heard".

Am talking about this offseason and preseason. However, I don't believe one second that Stanzi was awarded any type of opportunity during camp and preseason from Haley and it carried over in the season. He did not play or even suit up in the last preseason game and they did everything possible to make Cassel be the guy. When Cassel went down Haley had Palko to be the guy and I think Pioli brought in Orton to have a vet QB take over. There was absolutely no reason in hell for Palko be starting QB but he was. Why? That is on Haley to be asked.

On devels advicate on reason why Stanzi didn't get to play much during preseason is just from the timeing of the collective bargening to end. Yet doesn't make an excuse for 8 weeks go by that Stanzi couldn't have been put on second team for getting meaninful reps in practice. Stanzi was neglected by the coaches imo. This is why I think he has to take full advantage of any opportunity he gets during OTAs to make an impression with Crennel who they say is a fair coach. We shall see.

The thing that pissed me off this season is not getting to see Stanzi get some playing time in during the last month of football. No excuse for that.

O.city
01-13-2012, 06:24 PM
The fact that we stuck around in the playoff race probably kept them from seeing what Stanzi had at some point.


It's also telling that as soon as Haley was fired, Palko was immediately demoted to the third string role and Crennel talked about playing Stanzi.

Without the benefit of a normal off season with OTAs, a regular training camp schedule, etc. It is reasonable to belive that Stanzi was unprepared coming into the season and could not catch up even as the season progressed. However, that does not speak to his potential. We will see in August.

My opinion of Stanzi hasn't changed a bit.

I think us fans got ripped off last year.

Stanzi should have been the starter the moment Cassel went down. I will always believe we would have won the division if that was the case and that we would be done with Cassel right now if that had happened.

Does that answer your question?

Another thing that tmi has gone unmentioned...

With the coaching shakeup in Miami, it's highly doubtful that Paul Solai will be brought back on a big, long term contract.

We should be able to offer him a reasonable 4 or 5 year deal and be able to sign him.

We do that and bring in one of my guys as the OC and we could be well on our way to the land of rings and trophies.

Yeah, I'm optimistic.

If Cassel loses 4 or 5 in a row next year, he's done.

He should be done already, I'm just saying if that happens it's unjustifiable that Crennel can continue to run him out there.

It's a limited market for him.

When asked about Aubrayo Franklin last year, Pioli said he didn't fit our scheme because he was a 1gap defender.

Solai is a prototypical 2gap nose and Mike Nolans scheme was one of the last that is similar to ours. In NE, they highly value the NT spot and Solai will almost assuredly hit free agency and he should be our #1 target.

Stanzi is gonna be the guy. He got to sit for a year and learn. I have a good feeling about him.

It's time to unleash the Stanzi.

Omega to the dark side.

He secretly loves Stanzi.

Just wait.

Once Stanzi gets on the field, you will see what man crush is all about.

You didn't know clay in the LJ days....he will be talking about sucking on Stanzis toes and everything a year from now.

If we don't resign Orton, Stanzi should be made available to compete with Cassel for the starters job.

Well I'm an optimist, so I am gonna go on a little rant here and make a bold statement.

The 2012 offseason will be the best offseason the Chiefs have had under Pioli. This will be the one that permanently makes us contenders for a good couple years. Here is whats going down.
Sorry if this upsets anyone, but Pioli's finally gonna get it right.

Discuss.even if all this happens it still wouldn't be consider a great offseason by many around here. They will call it 'lucky' and say that Pioli didn't really do anything.

btw - If the chiefs do 'become a power' then why would you say pioli 'finally gonna get it right'? If they become a power then Pioli has been doing it right all along and we were just to impatience or stupid to see it. Just Sayin'

This brings up an interesting point. If we don't resign Orton is there a FA vet QB that the Chiefs sign? I know there are a lot of folks looking for us to draft a QB in the late rounds but that would leave us with;

Cassel
Stanzi
Rookie QB ???


Thoughts?

And since Stanzi is gonna be the guy, we need to sure up this oline this offseason.

Trade down in the first, get an extra second, draft Konz in the first, Hightower in the second and Reynolds in the second. Chris Polk in the third.

If we don't resign Orton, Stanzi should be made available to compete with Cassel for the starters job.

It's playing out exactlyhow it played out for Bledsoe and Tony Romo a few years back.

They supported Bledsoe to the last second. Parcels even issues statement after statement that Drew was the guy, drew was the guy....then, bam.

The switch was made and there was no going back.

The two scenarios are eerily similar, too.

Dallas traded a first rounder for Drew and had him on a big contract.

Drew took a lot of sacks and didn't make the best decisions.

Romo had a stronger arm, more mobility, quicker release and he moved the offense when it had become stagnant with Drew under center.

Shit, both Romo and Stanzi both have made some questionable decisions in games, too.

I think that Cassel will be playing for his career over the course of the next 6-8 games and could get pulled at anytime in that span and once that switch is made, there is no going back.

I don't even wanna see Cassel play six to eight more games.

Stanzi needs to work his ass off this offseasn and overtake him in training camp.

Thats easy to say from the outside in.

When you are the guy that was responsible for spending 40 million dollars of your owners money on a guy like Cassel and his upcoming years salary is the lowest year of the deal, I can't see him being cut.

Im pretty much prepared for him to begin 2012 as the starter.

Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

That's the ONLY way to be a Chiefs fan.

I don't think Romeo wants any part of Cassel. He's seen what he does to his defense.

I think Stanzi will be given a shot to compete.

BossChief
01-13-2012, 10:06 PM
My hope is that we have our bye around week 6 or 7 and a home divisional game afterwards.

That would be the game I would have circled when the schedule comes out.

O.city
01-13-2012, 10:09 PM
It would be so great if Stanzi is the guy. It would really free up this upcoming draft.

Trade down, take Konz, get a second, take Reynolds and Hightower in the second.

If it's a legit competition between Cassel and Stanzi, Stanzi is the game one starter.

He is equal or superior to Cassel in every way a quarterback is judged.

Gotta remember it's a business, though.

I agree that Romeo doesn't like Cassel, too. I think that will play into his hire for OC and how he is looking "outside the tree"

He sees what we see.

Hot garbage.

You can't bring in a guy like Tom Clements and tell him Cassel is really good and expect him to go along with it.

What one thing does Cassel do better than Stanzi?

BossChief
01-13-2012, 10:38 PM

It's quite possible.

I have seen every game Stanzi played in college.

Other than that, I usually only get to watch sec and a few other games on primetime because I work 6 days a week as a satellite installer and that takes away my Saturday afternoons...but, I always DVR the Iowa games if I can't watch them live.

I saw a kid TAKE the starters job from a highly recruited guy in Christianson (when Stanzi really wasn't recruited highly) and win a fuckton of games for Iowa in his three years as starter. I also saw him win all three bowl games. I watched him make bad mistakes and consistently make up for them late in games as a soph and junior andi saw him grow into a really good quarterback that could succeed in the NFL over the course of the final half of his junior year and his whole senior year.

In preseason, he displayed the best skillset out of the three quarterbacks....and it wasn't even close.

So, yeah if he had played for Cal or something...ofcourse I wouldn't be as well informed as I am about him.

Theta why I have always called for us to draft the cream of the crop (from the eye test) that Iowa has had to offer.

Thanks, Haley, you colossal ****up.I now kinda think Haley, on a suicide path, was grudge-messing with Pioli.

Stanzi needs to work his ass off this offseasn and overtake him in training camp.Stanzi looks a bit like Croyle in uniform. Perhaps he needs to work out this off season and gain some weight.

Stanzi is at least 20 pounds heavier than Croyle.

He looked larger in the Iowa uniform than in the Chiefs one. Maybe he lost weight and that was part of the reason he didn't play. :shrug:

This is where I am putting my hope, however weak. He may not know QB's, but he surely notices when a QB keeps putting his defense in a bad spot.

Changed my mind a little on this. Here is my updated offseason outlook.


Peyton Manning gets healthy, signs with the Chiefs as a free agent to a two year deal.

The Chiefs resign Carr and Bowe. They bring in Soliai from Miami on a two year incentive laden deal.

The three ACLS come back healthy.

In the draft we take Richardson in the first if he falls to us. If he doesn't we try and trade down with someone and pick up an extra second rounder. If we trade down, we take Konz with the first pick, Burfict or Hightower fall to our first pick in the second round. With the 2 pick in round 2, we take Mike Adams to play RT. In the third round we take Miller from Miami to pair with Charles. We then pick up some safety depth and depth on the DL.

Cassel is the backup.
