View Full Version : Chiefs Offseason predictions

I know we are only in week 3 but I figured I would make some offseason predictions now and see how they play out while the season is still young.

1. RAC will be fired after the season
I just don't feel like with this schedule this team will be competitive this year, and with the talent we have that will be unacceptable. The fans will be screaming for a new HC and this will force our GM's hand.

2. Matt Cassel will not be our starting QB after this year.
Bottom line is this, Cassel is not a franchise QB and after four years the Cassel experiment will finally come to an end. Again much like Crennel, the GM will have to replace him due to pressure from above and from the fans. Another year with him starting will meet with mutiny between the team and fans and that is not what this organization wants.

3. Pioli will be our GM next year
As unpopular as this might seem, I just don't think Hunt will fire him. I do think that he will have to abandon some of his time honored tenets in order to maintain this job long term.

4. We will hire someone from outside the "tree" to be our next HC.
Pioli needs to abandon the "Patriot Way" and will need to do something bold. For him, this is bold.

5. We will draft a first round QB
I hope it is not Landry Jones, but that is another argument. This is projected to be the deepest QB draft since Pioli has been here and we should end up with a 1st round caliber QB without having to trade up for one. Combine that with fan pressure and it will be tough for him to not draft one. He can't afford to make a mistake on another veteran QB, especially given the success of young QBs in the league.

6. Bowe resigns.......but at a premium.
Baldwin this year will prove that he is not #1 material and with the crop of projected FA WR's, we will have to resign Bowe. There will be no one on the market better than Bowe and he and the organization know this. They will need to give our rookie QB weapons and since Baldwin is not capable of carrying that load, it will have to be Bowe. But he won't come cheap.

7. We resign Albert
Albert is good, but not great. We won't find better in FA (as elite LTs never hit the market) and the fanbase will explode if we let him walk and draft his replacement in the 1st round. But since he is not elite we should be able to sign him long term for a reasonable amount.

8. Dorsey leaves via FA
Dorsey still has the potential to be a great 4-3 DT. He can go to a team that plays that type of defense and get paid well to do it. At least he will get paid better than he will as a 3-4 DE with the Chiefs. I think the Chiefs believe he is easily replaceable and will not try too hard to keep him. Dorsey will want to go where he can be a potential star instead of a forgotten piece on our defense.

These are just my predictions, some could be right, or they could all be wrong. I figured it was better to make these now instead of at the end of the year when many more things are set in stone. What does everyone else think and why?

2. Cassel gets cut if number 3 is true
3. Not if he doesn't cut Cassel
8. Dorsey stays if new coach has a new DC who runs a 4-3

I can't see a way Romeo is fired and Fat Scott returns next year.

As a GM you can't go through two coaches in less than a year and keep your job.

Even Clark couldn't justify that.

I think if this season ends up 5-11 or something like that, and Pioli is retained but must make a coaching change, you will see RAC "retire" rather than fired...

1. Cassel continues his ways and gets benched for Quinn because pioli wil allow this if it saves his job

2. Hillis becomes main starter due to Charles knee problem

3. Chiefs offense continues to struggle daboll is shit canned about the half way point

4. Romeo doesn't improve defense by week 13 or so is also shit canned

5. Pioli being fired will depend on lost revenue compared to the last 2 seasons

But really want to see Romeo do well I like him much more then the last 2 HCs. Need a better offensive coordinator also and no cassel this offense will fly.

If offense was our only problem I would agree with you. Our defense which Romeo is responsible for is also atrocious.

I buy into the defensive is shit because the offense is shit theory. It's a fact this defense had played better with cassel gone and Orton at quarterback. Though crenels fats ass needs to jump some players instead of just standing there like "well fuck hats off to the other team every game"

My draft scenario if Pioli is still the GM next season:

1rd: OL
2rd: DL
3rd: WR
4th: RB
5th: TE
6th: K
7th: QB

Saw a mock today said chiefs picking 7th taking Cb Miliner from Alabama. If they take a qb instead it will be Laundry Fuxking Jones. Hes very similar to cassel it's scary really.

Clark is a fucking EUNUCH if he allows Pioli to fire another HC without firing himself.

I think the D plays just well enough to save Romeo's job. He then hires a DC. If we don't get to the AFCCG next year, Romeo is gone.
Pioli stays and drafts a 1st round QB, but given the insane pressure to win now, Pioli gets a veteran QB while the rookie is groomed to start in year 2. Cassel is cut after a terrible 2012 season.
Like someone argued, I don't see Clark paying 3 coaches and also pay Pioli 5M $ for such hiring brilliance. Something's gotta give.

The Chiefs will be lucky to make .500, much less the AFC ANYTHING game.

.500 this year. Romeo will be retained for next year under super high expectations. Meanwhile Pioli lays all the groundwork to save his job after 2013 and that includes buying time with a 1st rd QB next April.
Clark preaches stability all the time, unless Pioli sleeps with Mrs Clark, I don't think for a second that Pioli and Romeo will be gone after this season.

You guys are out of your minds if you think this team is going .500. We finally play a legit schedule for Christ's sake. There is no Curtis Painter, Kyle Boller, or Donovan Mcnabb this year.

Buffalo was probably our easiest game this season with the exception of Cleveland, and we got smacked around.

I think the D steps up slowly but surely and accounts for 6 wins by itself. My gut says this season is going to be eerily similar to the previous one! I am just hoping that the O's incompetence gets Cassel out of here.

Cleveland, Cincy, Oakland, San Diego seem to be the only possible wins.

steal one against forehead perhaps, Indy is a possibility, both Raider games..there you go, 6 is not as daunting as it seems.
Don't confuse my optimism with my priorities. Cassel must go even if we win the division.

Well I don't think we win at Cleveland.

I wouldn't call wanting to win 6 games "optimism" I would call that foolishness

Lets wait and watch. Currently this team is a strong candidate to finish 2-14. 6 wins is optimism in my book.

6 wins would put us out of the 1-4 slot come draft time (Not that we would draft someone great if Pioli were in command anyway)

I agree except I see them trying to spin it as Romeo stepping down, not sure about #4, and Bowe gets tagged.

The Chiefs finish the year with 7 wins. Cassel has huge numbers due to garbage time stats. Bowe benefits as well due to garbage time stats and gets a big payday. Pioli says "See? I told you Cssel is the right guy." after Cassel puts up 4000 yards and 30 TDs, thus giving Cassel an extension. Romeo will be given another year because he was over whelmed as DC and HC. A new DC will be hired from the Belichick coaching tree, most likely Al Groh.


Or, Romeo and the rest of the coaching staff is fired to bring in Rob Ryan.

I may have misspoken. I originally said the new DC would be from the Belichick coaching tree. The new DC may be accurately described as from the Parcells coaching tree with Belichick ties.
