No. That's where you are wrong. And you would understand just how wrong you are if at ALL Jamaal Charles misses any time.
There is a severe lack of weapons on this team.
If you look at what I would consider to be the 6 or so teams that you could legitimately could win the super bowl this year.
The Chiefs are so far at the bottom of that list when it comes to offense.
It really is a bad offense skill position wise, and that's not even incorporating how bad the oline has played at times, and how piss poor Alex Smith has played the past two weeks.
When your slot receiver is a combination of Chad Hall, McCluster, Aj Jenkins. That aint good.
The tight end position is very weak as well.
While I agree with you, Avery is a nice number two, he is probably better as a three.
I also wonder if Bowe, wouldn't do better in the slot. I am seeing that a lot in the past two years where teams are moving their better options into the slot.
The 49ers did it last year with Crabtree, the Cowboys move Dez everywhere, Justin Blackmon was in the slot almost exclusively vs the Broncos.
maybe that is what Andy means by not putting his guys in the right positions.
The skill positions on offense, are VERY bad.
If Charles goes down, I don't know how this team would score on offense at all.
That's just too much pressure on a guy.
those are those legitimate teams to me along with the Chiefs that have a chance. All have VASTLY more weapons than the Chiefs.
With the Seahawks, and 49ers having similar defenses.
