My review of how I've diverged from the real Chiefs.
Positions where I'm better than the real Chiefs:
QB - I've invested heavily in young QBs, and it looks like Sanchez is paying off as my starter. Clausen will hopefully develop behind him.
HB - Charles and Spiller? I've got a strong RB corp, and Spiller will split out occasionally to help my weak WR corps.
TE - Tony G. What can I say?
DT - I've added Dorsey back to this group and switched to a 4-3, which is a better use of our talent. Otherwise the same.
Areas where I'm about the same as the real Chiefs:
WR - I don't have McCluster, but Spiller will do the same thing. Otherwise a wash.
T - I think Barry Richardson has potential, but so does Alex Boone. The real Chiefs might be a little ahead of me, but I have two developmental prospects. It looks like the Raiders may be lining Campbell up at guard, though.
C - I don't have Niswanger, but I kept Wade Smith. I think I'm a little better, but it's not a big difference.
P - Colquitt. Why mess with perfection?
CB - Probably a wash overall. Two good starters and it goes downhill from there.
OLB - Hard to judge this since I'm moving Hali back to DE in a 4-3 alignment. Maualaga and Studebaker will start for me, with Dekoda Watson backing them up. I think I'm okay.
DE - I'm moving Dorsey back to DT, but I like my DEs. I've got Hali and Gilberry on the right side to rush the passer, and Pryor and Carrington on the left side to stuff the run. I think eventually my group will prevail. Pryor can drop inside to DT occasionally, too.
Areas where I'm weaker than the real Chiefs:
G - I didn't draft Asamoah and drafted Duke Robinson, who is now on injured reserve for the year. I made the tough decision to hold him for a year to see if he comes through.
K - It's really hurt me that I didn't draft Succop last year, so I'm still running with a scrub kicker.
S - I drafted Kendrick Lewis, and got Reshard Jones to be my strong safety. (The Dolphins have moved him to free safety, but I have to leave him at SS.) Of course, I drafted Spiller over Berry, so I don't have Berry.
ILB - I've got DJ and Demorrio, but no depth right now.
Since I'm moving people, I'll note my front seven against the real Chiefs' front seven.
Them: Hali, Vrabel, Belcher, Johnson, Jackson, Dorsey, Edwards.
Me: Maualaga, Studebaker, Johnson, Hali, Pryor, Dorsey, Edwards.
I think I like my group better.
My past posts echo through the hallowed halls of Chiefsplanet.
