‘Chiefs are a regression candidate in 2018,’ says Washington Post writer

After the Chiefs and three other teams were knocked out of the playoff field last weekend, a Washington Post writer ranked the chances for improvement next season for each franchise.

Mike Renner wrote that the Chiefs have the worst chance of those four teams (the others are the Panthers, Rams and Bills) to be better next season.

Renner began by saying the Chiefs defense lacked depth and many of the starters received “subpar grades.”

“Even former all-pro safety Eric Berry is no lock to return to his previous form,” Renner wrote. “He’ll turn 30 next year and is rehabbing a torn Achilles. Tamba Hali (34 years old) and Derrick Johnson (35) are squarely in the twilight of their careers.

“The question now becomes, how do they restock? They’ve struck out mightily outside of their top picks in the draft, and their cap situation is one of the worst in the league. As it stands, they’re currently over the projected cap in 2018. Even after some cap-shedding maneuvers, it’s impossible to think free agency is a realistic option for them. It also means that even after a career-high 87.2 grade from Alex Smith, he and his $20.6 million cap hit next season could be out the door. With the uncertainty at QB and a declining defense, the Chiefs are a regression candidate in 2018.”

If you were wondering, there is no mention of Patrick Mahomes.

While down on the Chiefs, Renner is bullish on the Rams’ chances. You can read more here.

Very possible if we don't do something about the defense. Front 7 is ****ing trash outside of 3 players. Secondary is even worse.

This was said about the chiefs for this past year as well. No need to read any article after this line:


"If you were wondering, there is no mention of Patrick Mahomes."

Saints gave up 26 points, they won and are still playing because their QB is not a talentless, scared pussy.

We’ll be fine

Even their sports are fake news. With very easy cuts on a few old players and an obvious trade with Alex Smith, they will certainly have the cap space to do whatever they want. I wouldn't be surprised if they have 40+ mil to play with.

They are a candidate between retaining werthers (****ing why) , a total Defensive overhaul and ironing out the wrinkles in a new Offense.

One slip up to set up a decade of rape is fine though.

If we slide too far back its a very real possibility Reid won't be back. Treading into boom or bust territory here.

Forever sucking the Raider's cock. For ****'s sake.

So is Sutton gone a done deal?

King_Chief_Fan 01-12-2018 03:00 PM

8-8....surprised it is that high
Rookie qb with no OC or qb coach (Smith was a great mentor)
Fan base and ownership that is ok with the way it has been
Playing tough shedule
HC that is delusional
Over the cap and has to cut a lot of experience and replace with cheaper and less skilled replacements

Regress to what....not winning a playoff game?
