If they truly were rebuilding, they would have already traded Hasty, Grunhard, Patton, Szott, Grbac, Glock, Alexander & Williams for as many draft picks as they could get. If they were rebuilding, they never would have signed Lew Bush to a 17.5 million dollar contract so he can make 1 or 2 tackles per game. If they were rebuilding they would not be sitting at 41 million dollars over the cap next year, they would be slicing as much off of that figure as they could right now.

If they were rebuilding, they would start Morris, Lockett, Bartee, Dennis, Maslowski, Collins, Stills, Martin & Ransom to get them experience.

Then of course they would have a poor record this year, as would be expected when starting that many inexperienced players. However, they would then be picking much, much higher in the draft and FINALLY be able to take a legit QBOTF, either Vick or Brees, preferrably Vick.

They would have higher picks in every round, and additional draft picks by the trading of the aforementioned players.

They would be well on their way to gaining their own “Big 3” [Vick and Morris]. The next year they could concentrate their efforts in obtaining a superstar HB. A year or two after that, they would be well under the cap and they could sign some free-agents to complement the young stars and they would be contenders again.

Contin...

Of course, before all of that happens Lamar must fire Peterson and Gunther and both of their entire staffs. I know it’s not going to happen. But I just stated this because people keep saying the Chiefs are rebuilding when it’s totally obvious that they are not.

The 9ers are rebuilding.

The Chiefs are trying/failing to retool. They are spinning their wheels in mediocrity. It’s time for a change. I hope the Chiefs go 0-16. Then maybe Peterson will finally be fired and we get on with trying to rebuild what’s left of this once proud franchise. <BR>

The sooner Lamar realizes this the better. It would be best if he did not put this off. He's only prolonging the inevitable.

Who knows maybe he just doesn't want to see the team lose? Maybe he's going to let his son try to clean this mess up after Lamar is dead?

Some of these fans see a rookie or two starting and think that the team is going into a rebuilding phase. What they ignore is a 43 year old back up QB, 35 year corner back, and a 1960's philosophy in the organization. I thought they should have begun the rebuilding process after Marty left. Instead, they traded a #2 pick for Chester then signed this loser to a long term deal. Then they reward Dan Williams for sitting out a year. They are in the hole. If they go 0-3, hopefully they will begin to unload the overaged, underachieving malcontents.

Who ever replaces CArl will have on bloody mess on their hands. You think the 9ers look bad. Wait until the Chiefs REALLY rebuild.

Cannibal,

Dont get your hopes up to high. We both know that its about filling the seats at Arrowhead. Carl isnt going anywhere unless the fans abandon the team. And Carl is able to keep the team just good enough to make the fans interested. I recently read where Lamar said that Carl "is the best GM in the business". I doubt he will be fired and you know he wont retire. He has to big of an ego. We are stuck with him.

I'm hoping Mark Richt will become our head coach or at least OC.

GOD DAMN it's frustrating!!!

It's a never ending nightmare!

The Chiefs season's remind me of that ****ing movie... "Groundhog Day".

Cannibal - Be realistic here, do you have nay clue how far over the cap tha would put us, no matter who else we cut?

Yeah, it would be cap hell for three years. But we could play a lot of young guys to save money. <P>

The only untouchables on this team IMO are:

Richardson
Edwards
Gonzo
Tait
Morris

Cannibal - Wrong, it would make it impossible to get under the cap even this year, unless you are willing to dump all the people that you mentioned wanting to keep.

How did the 9ers do it?

With or without Carl. They have got to address that cap problem. They are making a HUGE mistake by paying Elvis all that money. There are MANY QBs that can do what Elvis does for 10% of the cost. They are paying Elvis like a team pay a difference maker. Elvis isnt a difference maker. The team is just as good with or without him.

Glock, Williams and Grbac are our highest paid players... there is something wrong with this picture.

Two guys who can do nothing except take up space and jump offsides and QB who still makes rookie mistakes in his 8th year.

Yea, the Chiefs havent allocated their money wisely. If you are going to pay a guy over 5 mill a year, he better make a difference. The guys you mentioned (Grbac, Williams, Chester) dont make a positive difference. They are average players. This experiment should be over with. The results are in and it failed. Its time to cut our losses. Get rid of these guys. Throw Hasty, Moon and Carlton Gray in while your at it.

Cannibal,

Mark Richt is FSU's offensive coordinator/QB coach.

The Chiefs are definately NOT rebuilding!!! They're just staring at the blueprints wondering what in the hell to do.

We may not be rebuilding, but we sure the hell aren't reloading either.
