Wed, 15 May 2013 13:13:05 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs (http://www.kffl.com/team/21/nfl/kansas-city-chiefs) WR Dwayne Bowe (http://www.kffl.com/player/16076/nfl/dwayne-bowe) said he expects to lead the NFL (http://www.kffl.com/team/77/nfl/nfl) in receptions and receiving touchdowns in 2013, and that RB Jamaal Charles (http://www.kffl.com/player/18224/nfl/jamaal-charles) will lead the league in rushing this season.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe should receive more targets under head coach Andy Reid (http://www.kffl.com/player/1978/nfl/andy-reid) but likely will not be a top fantasy wide receiver. He should be viewed as a solid No. 2 wide receiver option. Charles has shown he can be a top fantasy running back and should be an every-week starter in 2013.<!--Comment () (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/gnews.php?id=853208-chiefs---dwayne-bowe-has-high-expectations-for-offense) | -->

I'm surprised we want McClain back. His blocking sucked.

I don't really care to see McClain back. If he does come back, that's fine. But in all honesty Mike Cox was a better blocker.

What I'm reading implies that our QBs in training camp will be Luck, Griffin, Tannehill, Manning, Henne, Orton, Garrard, and Cassel. I think that could make for some good competition.

Nightfyre
02-26-2012, 04:35 PM
I'm just saying, if we resigned McClain and Battle, then added Tolbert, that would give us a pretty terrific backfield. We wouldn't need to add Richardson at that point. In short yardage situations, we could have Tolbert and McClain in the backfield. Between the twenties we could have Charles and Tolbert operating out of the same backfield and Battle would provide adequate depth.

So on February 20th the news is that the Chiefs are "expecting Stanford Routt" to start, and on the 22nd the news is that they "would like Brandon Carr to return"?

I think Routt is a fine corner, but Carr would clearly be the starter over Routt. Where does this "news" come from? Is it just rumor?

I'm sure Carr's on the phone right now with Pioli. The conversation is probably going something like, "Hey Scott, this is Brandon Carr. I know you have already replaced me after years of dedicated service, and I just want to say i hope you replace Matt Cassel as well. It is my opinion that you replace him with RG3. RG3 will lead you to many Superbowls which is exactly what i want since i will be playing for a different team. Tell all my good friends goodbye for me. Not Matt though."

True.

But you could use that one pick, save money and get a better player than those three likely combined.

With that saved money go get a qb or NT.

Chiefs open to trading up or down in the first round (http://www.profootballweekly.com/2012/02/25/texans-want-to-lock-up-ot-brown)

The Chiefs got a big victory during the Combine, grabbing the 11th pick in the draft after winning a coin toss against the Seahawks, who will choose 12th. It may not seem like much of a difference, but GM Scott Pioli felt the win helps the Chiefs whether they want to keep the pick or trade it. "Not only is it a better opportunity for you to get what you want, but if there is an opportunity to make a trade, you are one spot higher, and the value of that pick is going to be that much greater," the GM said.

I don't see why the Chiefs would want him back. His YPG continually got lower & lower as he carried the rock this year.

I just don't see what he brings to the table that pretty much any other back couldn't.

they'll get him cheap. He's a great special teams guy. It'd be good to sign him for cheap, hell, he probably did them a favor by looking around and realizing that there is no interest in him. especially as a RB.

I was actually thinking about that this weekend.

With the Chiefs now selecting ahead of Seattle, it significantly increases our trade value to move back.

If a guy like Tannehill is available when we pick, a team may want to jump Seattle to draft him. Same goes for Richardson, who could also go to Seattle.

Its a nice bit of leverage picking immediately before a team that needs. QB and a RB. Especially considering we need both as well.

That's the one head scratcher I have about all this. Romeo said that one of the things he'll do better this time is to avoid a qb controversy. Then everything he says is basically "fuck Matt" except for the occasional "he's the guy under contract, so he's our starter" which translates to me as "dammit I can't believe cassel is better than stanzi"

I say fuckit let Stanzi start. Go big or go home.

Here's the direct quote from the article that was the source:

The Rams have also had informal chats with several teams out the top 10. Possible suitors could be the Chiefs at No. 11 and Seahawks at No. 12. Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel gushed about Griffin on Saturday, saying he's the kind of player "you go up to get."

The Kansas City Chiefs have held preliminary talks with the St. Louis Rams regarding the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL Draft. The Chiefs have expressed interest in Baylor QB Robert Griffin III. Head coach Romeo Crennel gushed about Griffin during the NFL Scouting Combine, saying he is the kind of player "you go up to get."

It says in the first line that we have held preliminary talks with them about the pick.

I would love for them to be able to put a package together to move up, but them simply taking it far enough to talk about that big a move is basically waving goodbye to Matt Cassel just a little more and that, to me, is exciting.


Also, a mod should update the title before we get a barrage of reposts of this.

Where does it say the Chiefs have had talks with the Rams, outside of the KFFL post?

The reason I posted the article that the KFFL link has listed as its source....

was because no where in it does it say the Rams and Chiefs have talked.

You never know in this league.

The Rams could possibly cut some dead weight and take a combination of Dorsey/Bowe and our #11 pick in trade because that gives them two proven players AND a premium pick.

Truth is, they have the pick for sale and they may see a compensation package like that as better value than a bunch of picks.

Just the thought of our team with somebody except Cassel at quarterback is enough to get me excited.

Boss man I want to soooooooooooo believe D. All the above, as you said BUT their is a huge "tell" here why he stays with Cassel.

Answer- Haley's firing. Haley was never a Cassel fan from the get go and by the end of 2010 Haley was emotionally and mentally done with Cassel and Pioli knew it. Thus you have the 2011 strained relationship between Haley and Pioli. And when Cassel got hurt Palko was Haley's middle finger to Pioli as someone suggested here on the board which I thoroughly agree with.

IMHO Pioli is just playing poker here.

A. Do you see Orton back in Kansas City for another year?
B. Would you consider bringing in Peyton Manning if he becomes available?

The point is, he could go all coach speak when asked these questions, and basically not answer them at all, like most coaches do. The fact that he's openly talking like this about other QB prospects is...new...to say the least from a Chiefs coach. Maybe that's why it's so exciting, but it does sound to me like Romeo at least wants another QB on the roster.

Well I won't be fooled by that. As I was exiting Arrowhead halfway through the 4th quarter against Denver last year, I made a statement about not supporting the Chiefs until they address the QB situation. No more Cassel. And I meant it. I will not attend another Chiefs game until there is a QB that is a serious NFL talent. No more shitfest QBs like Cassel and Palko.

Crennel certainly hasn't gone out of his way to protect Cassel. He has so far said he wants Orton back, implied if Orton was back it would be a serious battle, said you would be stupid to not go look at Manning, and finally almost blew his load talking about RG3.

Now none of these comments are crazy or prove anything. That being said, none of this, or anything even close, has been talked about by the organization before this offseason. With what we are looking at, any sign has to be viewed as positive.

As down as people including myself have been, I think we are at the point where if the chance came KC would get another QB. Now I am not saying Pioli will take the necessary steps, or pay the price we feel he should. I do feel that if the right price comes around, he would go after one of the 3 QBs Crennel seems to like. I just hope he is going to be more agressive at that than most of us expect.

A few months ago I felt that even if a team offered a good trade up for a QB to us or if Manning asked to come here Pioli would have turned both situations down. Now I think at the very least we are at the point where he would take it if he felt it was fair for the team. I want more than that in agressiveness, but atleast the door is open.

Nobody was talking about that. The subject was if the broad jump tests a players explosiveness.

You don't find it odd that they'd have a test for that if it didn't at all?

He would start over Houston.

While Houston is still young and has plenty of upside, hes not guaranteed to be good. Also Houston's contract is still pretty small. Giants proved you can't have too many pass rushers.

We shouldn't pay him what hes currently making, but the Chiefs should be willing to make a courteous offer.

O.city
03-05-2012, 08:44 PM
I don't think I'd start him over Houston. He's never played the OLB in the 34.

He played the rush backer spot in Cleveland. So that would be more what Tamba plays.


I'm not against it at all. The toughest part is getting all them on the field at the same time running the 34.

It would be cool to see some stuff with Bailey and Jackson with their hands in the dirt and Wimbley, Houston, DJ, and Hali standing up.

BossChief
03-05-2012, 09:22 PM
Fuck that.

Houston was an animal once Romeo Crennel realized the kid can rush the passer very effectively.

I'm not interested in paying anything near what Wimbley will be looking for.

If he wants to take pay that makes sense for a situational player, so be it.

4-5 million a year or so would be about it, though.

We do that and it's like getting Wimbley and Routt for the price of Carr.

O.city

YOu can never have too many pass rushers. That said, you can't overpay for them. The Giants have an abundance but probably are about to lose some of them.

<HR>[/COLOR]Chiefs | Feel Rodney Hudson ready to start (http://www.kffl.com/team/21/gnews.php?id=771726-chiefs---feel-rodney-hudson-ready-to-start-)
Mon, 27 Feb 2012 04:53:30 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs (http://www.kffl.com/team/21/nfl/kansas-city-chiefs) general manager Scott Pioli said he believes OL Rodney Hudson (http://www.kffl.com/player/24086/nfl/rodney-hudson) will be ready to start in 2012. "I think he's ready to be a starter at center or guard," Pioli said. "He's a good, young player and he had some time last year. One of the interesting things about Rodney that showed itself is his maturity, his ability to prepare. He was our fourth inside guy, so to speak. When we had guys out, he actually played for Ryan (Lilja) at guard. Casey (Wiegmann) of course hasn't missed a snap in 100 years. But Rodney is ready to play either one of the positions. He's ready to play in the NFL (http://www.kffl.com/team/77/nfl/nfl). He's a smart kid who really has a level of maturity that's rare."

Nice to see draft picks getting, earning a spot...

Denver has 40 million of cap space and, if they don't sign Manning, are screwed in that the best FAs are gone. I hope PM keeps them on the fence for another week or two while we get Winston and Schwartz signed and then PM decides to go to Tennessee. The Denver fans will be right to go nuts ... all that cap space gone to waste.

Meanwhile, a FA period for us that includes Routt, Hillis, Boss, Winston, and Schwartz would be huge for us, regardless of space we have left. Winston and Routt will not count against the compensation picks we might get for Carr, Orton, McClain, and any others because they were cut prior to our signing.

Say NO to Poe! If not Poe, then who? Is there another NT worthy of #11? I'm almost always an advocate of trading down.

for real, fuck that shit. If we keep 11, I'd have to go for Kuechly or DeCastro

I absolutely love Chandler Jones. Great motor, long arms, outstanding pedigree. However not at 11. If you can trade down to get him and pick up another 2nd then I'm all for it.

He's one of the ones I want in a trade down scenario. Doesn't hurt to have Hali, Houston and CJ as pass rushers.

I just don't think Poe is a Pioli pick

While Pioli will reach for need he's not a workout warrior type guy imo.

Kuechly seems like a Pioli pick imo

The closer the time gets, the more this just makes sense.

I heard a bit of the interview Kuechly gave Tim and Pat on Movin the Chains. Sounds like a very bright kid, and some of the numbers they rambled off on him were impressive. Not a ton of sacks or INT's, but a ton of stops behind the line to go with a fair amount of pass breakups.

I can see us drafting him.

After gambling on Baldwin and Houston last year I can see Pioli going with more the sure thing this year unless Tannehill slips to us. Keuchly or DeCastro if we can't trade down and the odds are against that. I think I'd rather have DeCastro over Keuchly. We could have the youngest and best interior o line in the league. We'd be set for a long time on the interior o line.

If we draft Decastro, we better have the best offensive line in the league.

2 firsts
1 second rounder
1 third rounder
5.5 million/year for RT

Thats a lot of investment.

Yeah it seems that way. Wouldn't it be the same if we drafted Keuchly? We'd have two 1st round pick ILBs in the middle of our 3-4. :shrug: Between DeCastro and Kuechly I'd go with DeCastro.

Not just the interior. Winston and Albert are only 27.

This draft, in regards to Decastro, really depends on what they wanna do with Hudson. If they are gonna put him at C, fine take Decastro. If you are gonna keep him at G, wait and take a C a little later in the draft.


If thats the case, with who all is available at our 11 pick, I could try and get on board with Poe. If Romeo thinks he can turn him into Wilfork, hell yeah take the guy.

One big plus to bringing in a center to start is depth. If we draft or bring in a C to start then Hudson becomes the backup as well as playing G. If we go with Hudson at C we still have to add backup.

O.city
04-15-2012, 01:21 PM
Yeah, you essentially want a G who can play C as well just in case.


I think Decastro worked a little at C in a pro day, so he could likely do it if he absolutely had to, but wouldn't want to try and move him there. Same reason I don't really want to move Hudson to C, as he was a great G in college. But I guess thats what he was drafted for so who know.

Like the updates. Nice to see what the latest is. But honestly I only look at the past 2 or so because we've all read the ones before that.

Are you open to trimming some of that down? Say always keep the 5-10 most recent posts. Anything before that? Gone.

Neither of those guys fit the scheme we run. Like DJ said, if we are moving to a 1 gap style with some 4 man fronts, sure. But we likely aren't .

Caller to 610 a minute ago personifies truefan.

Don't just take decastro. Take TWO "power guards" in the draft.

They'll run for 2500 yards and Cassel will look like Joe Montana.

how easy must it be to work at KFFL

*wake up
*load computer
*look at team's depth chart on yahoo
*make assumption on what team needs
*post
*pretend to look credible by throwing something at a wall and hope it sticks.

you can literally say the Chiefs need to look at every position just like they did d-line and make the post.

i.e.

The Chiefs plan to target safety in the first round because the team has yet to re-sign veterans Jon McGraw and Sabby Piscitelli. Look for the Chiefs to target S Joe Blow out of Blah Blah U or Jim Blah out of Rah Rah State.

Why did the Chiefs work out WR Keith Nichol? Because they are taking QB Kirk Cousins. They wanted to pick his brain about our HoFQBotF.

I have no doubt.

Kind of interesting, though... Cousins is a three-year captain, one of the most mature players in this draft.

He's not the kind of guy that warrants a ton of additional research...

Why is everyone so seemingly anti-Cousins? Cuz he's not Luck or RGIII?

Because he is terrible. Is a much worse prospect than Stanzi based on film IMO
