Grading Carl Peterson's offseason moves....

[rant]I just got back from the road and finally have a few days off to get my Planet fix. However, I have been closely following the personnel moves (non moves) on Sirius NFL channel. I grade Peterson's performance as follows:

1) Not signing Samari Rolle. F-

We had him here and nobody in this world can tell me they believe the BS reason CP gave as to why they didn't sign him. "Narrowing of the Spine"? Just how friggin stupid does Peterson think we are? When I heard that, the Peterson Screwed-the-Pooch O Meter went off the fuggin scale.

2) Signing Kendrell Bell. C (at best).

We don't sign a perfectly healthy top notch corner who is rarely injured if at all; but instead sign a LB who is top notch WHEN HEALTHY. The same one who missed all but 3 games last year because HE WAS INJURED. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE the signing. It was the sheer illogic of it that makes me want to take a chain saw to Peterson's car. Not to mention, why sign a player that has a history of injury in all but his rookie year over one (Ed Hartwell) who is young and healthy to a long term deal?

3) Not signing Fred Smoot. F-

After NOT signing Rolle, he fuggs this up too. If we had gotten Bell and Smoot I would have been exstatic. But, we have Bell and nothing else at this point. Granted, the new rules make a shutdown corner an anachronism but we still play in a Division with the likes of Lelie, Moss, etc.... Can anyone confidently say that Crispy, Toasty or McNugget can cover Moss for even a few seconds? Corner is still a high priority. Nice job Carl.

Summary: Final grade thus far...D-

Our offense isn't getting any younger and we have 1 or maybe 2 runs at the big dance left before the offense has to be retooled. I had hoped CP and Co would go all out for a run NOW by getting as many (within financial boundaries) defensive upgrades as possible. I have been in CP's corner for many years now but this offseason is making me rethink that position. If the remaining offseason moves (FA and draft) don't give us a middle of the rod defense AT THE VERY LEAST, I am all for dragging our GM through the streets behind his own SUV by his entrails. Mr Peterson, if you want to mess up a team please go elsewhere and do so. [/rant]

Smoot wasn't even in KC ??? Skip IT

Bell B+ if healthy
Rolle C- Baltimore offered him simply more Money in the first years that KC could affort.

Premature, much?


I think I will wait until Free Agency is over [that would be in late July, by the way] before I presume to issue a grade.

I tend to wait until I have some evidence before I slap down a judgment.

Out of fashion, I know, but what can you do?

I think that is really harsh.

Not Signing Rolle is worth an F

Rolle was the top FA, and he was there for the taking.

Trotter - I
We offered more cash for him to play here, he went back to philly, what else can we do?

Smoot - I
Smoot got a 10.8M signing bonus, 200K less than Rolle, is Smoot worth it? I don't think so.

Bell - A

I think the Bell signing will be huge. I liked Trotter, I like Hartwell, but are either of those guys playmakers? No. IMO, we just got a Derrick Thomas type player for a 3.5 M siging Bonus.

While I'm pissed about Rolle, I'm going to wait till I cast my judgement. If Carl Brings in Surtain or Law I'll give him an A for this offseason.

Don't you mean move? So far a D+ but an F if all we get is Bell and Sammy Knight which by the way is my prediction.

I think the Bell signing is an A if he stays on the field (which he should). His injuries aren't the type that will linger with him, they are more freakish injuries like a sports hernia from trying to squat too much weight. I would be worried about Bell if he had knee problems or something like that, but he doesn't and he is a Pro Bowl LB when he plays.

Can we go ahead and grade the draft now, too?

I probably should have said "thus far". Note that I did add the caveat "if the remaining offseason moves FA and draft don't produce a middle of the road D" BEFORE any mention of entrail dragging behind large motorized conveyances.

Okay, THAT was funny.

Sad, but true: someone [and I must admit I paid it all the attention it deserved] already posted our Win/Loss record for this year.

We don't sign a perfectly healthy top notch corner who is rarely injured if at all; but instead sign a LB who is top notch WHEN HEALTHY.

Which CB woud that be?

Offseason thus far IMO: D

Bell was an okay signing, but he missed more games than any of the other FAs we brought in. He ranked third on my LB wishlist.

****face absolutely BLEW IT w/ Rolle. Combine that with inactivity for a week, and you've got a piss-poor rating thus far. I don't know why I'm pissed; I knew this would happen... just didn't want to believe it (dumbass fan).

Rolle. He has been in the league since 1998 and played 101 out of 112 games. Pretty healthy if you ask me.
