Rebuilding the KC Chiefs

OK so this is my pie in the sky fix for our team...

1) Focus on tackling and physical toughness on defense. Our guys simply try for the turnover too often. DBs run to where the ball will be IF the WR doesn't catch it rather than trying to separate the WR from the ball and his head. Instead of trying to lead the league in TOs, we should focus on leading the league in fewest missed tackles and most decapitations. Turnovers will come off physical hits. That's how Baltimore does it. That's how we forced a fumble against NE.

2) We must get 2 defensive playmakers in free agency. I'd like to see us make a run at Kendrell Bell from Pittsburgh and Charles Woodson. Smoot would be ideal, but I don't think Washington lets him hit the market. After last offseasons hold out, I'm not convinced the Raiders will tag Woodson again. I'd like a new MLB, but the truth is that Mitchell is actually improving. He does overrun some plays, but that can be corrected. He's a good tackler when gets his hands on a runner. He needs to better in coverage. Beisel has played pretty well also.

3) While Kennison and Morton have had their moments this year, we need to get younger at WR. At a minimum, one of them must be replaced, preferably both. If we can replace both within the cap then I'd like to see us run after Porter from Oakland and Givens from NE.

4) Right now we would draft 7th and I suspect we may be around #5 after the season is over. I say first round Derrick Johnson - LB from Texas and 2nd round Chris Canty - DE from Virginia. Johnson is the best defensive player in the country and after we cut Holliday, we'll need another DE to rotate in with Allen, Hicks and Wilkerson.

Players that I'd part ways with if I can do it within the cap are McCleon, Holliday, Barber, Kennison and Morton. I'd add Woods, but given his new deal, we won't be able to.

I'd like to resign Blaylock but Bell, Woodson, Porter and Givens probably wouldn't allow us to. We need to play Johnson more now and get him ready.

Those are my thoughts....blast away.

We're not going to replace our wide receivers. At least not for a couple years.

The offense is fine. It is good enough to win a championship. The defense is not, and until this team finds balance, they won't even get close.

Vermeil needs to start running full-speed practices.

I agree with the practices, we must develop some toughness and better tackling. We definitely must add talent on defense. However, if we do not replace at least 1 of our starting WRs we will not struggle next year even if our defense improves. We don't have to upgrade, but we must replace. Kennison and Morton will not play at this level next year. They will decline in their performance. This is their last hurrah. They will be 32 and 34 next year. We must get younger at that position.

Why would they decline? They aren't old as dirt quite yet.

Morton and Kennison have improved their play in KC each year. Yet they have also gotten older each year.

With a healthy Boerigter back we will be in great shape.

If we are to rebuild a team, chances are that we will have to suffer some of the cap hits, like SF is right now. However, let's say, 100 million is the salary cap. I want at least 45 million on offense, 45 million on defense, and 10 on special teams (kickers, punters, etc.)

They'll decline because they won't ascend. They are both still dropping passes and they've added fumbling to the mix now. Any coincidence to their training camp injuries and age? Kennison is supposed to be the speedster, but got caught from behind in TB. He bobbled the TD pass last night and dropped another, as did Morton. They won't get any better which means they'll decline. Nobody stays the same.

That's a nice thought, but because of spreading signing bonuses over the length of the contract to lessen the cap hit, that won't likely happen. However, you could get to payroll being relatively even. Sadly, based on resigning Woods, Hicks, and Bartee, we might have been relatively even this year.

After I saw Kennison go on that string of miss 4 passes in a row, that hit him in the chest, I was pretty much fed up with him - the TD at the end of the game should have been caught by someone else because Kennison shouldn't have been on the field and Green shouldn't have been throwing at him.

Morton has done better, but he is still inconsistent and he did miss one or two passes last night that bounced off his chest as well. That is something a WR that is getting paid millions to play just can't do.

I would have no problem with your fixes but would prefer a DE first. 3/4 of our secondary will be starting again next season so I think our only hope is to get to the quarterback sooner. The biggest downer is the Woods contract. He has been the worst part of our secondary and his contract says that he stays and plays.

Nice thoughts there Alphaman. Too bad Carl won't listen.

Sadly, you are right. You see, if my understanding is correct, was most of our signing bonsus was on the defense in the 90's?

Taking away from resigning Woods, Hicks, and Bartee to ridicilous long term contracts, the Offense would had most of the majority of the signing bonsus.

Here's what I see happening. Lamar will stay with Carl and not make a change. After the season, Carl will blame the record on injuries and point out that everyone on IR is doing well and will return. Since they are returning, there is no point in adding talent so they will pretty much stand pat again.
