I am disappointed the Cap $ figure was raised.

Though I am happy the CBA was negotiated.

I had hoped to see the Chiefs forced to make some additional cuts and start the rebuilding process in earnest. Once I heard the following from Herm:

Quote:
Edwards indicated we may rush the ball up to 10 more times a game to utilize our offensive line and RB better, plus keep the defense on the sideline longer.

The play action pass may be used more.
I knew for sure we were returning to Martyball and keeping some of our veterans no longer made sense. We will be mediocre next seasons and probably at least one more since this is the year we cannot spend cash (nothing to do with salary cap, we won't spend our cap limit this year, just like in 2004).

So I wanted the rebuilding to start in earnest, get Shields to retire, let Hicks, Wesley, and Woods go.

So how about you are you going to be disappointed when we don't use that extra cap room the other clubs like Denver and the Raiders will take advantage of, and how about the return to Martyball, how does that sit with you?

CP and Lamar stated they would not be very active in FA this year. Sounds to me like they are content with being a disappointing, mediocre team again...

Yeah I was kind of thinking that as well. If we are not going to use the extra cap space to improve we might as well be forced to change things up. It didn't sound like we were going to lose anyone critical to make it under.

Unfortunatly I agree that both Oakland and Denver will make much more aggressive use of the extra space that we will. The lower cap was kind of an equalizer for that.

Though for the outlook on the league itself I defintily think its a good thing.

I am not dissapointed in the return to "Martyball", since I grew up watching it, and would much rather have a dominating D than O any day. As for not spending any money this yr, I doubt that will be entirely accurate, I think we will add a few people via fre agency(I'll be real pissed if we don't, because to me if you don't spend the money, then you're just not trying).

I think we all know that Carl postures a lot. I think we will add a couple of good players, which is fine with me. I like MOST of the guys we've got. I would love to add a top notch receiver but if we don't I don't think it will kill us. We need a CB to replace Warfield and somebody on the d-line (if not a couple of guys). If we do this then I will be happy.

There are very few teams that really go through a true rebuilding process. The only reason that Woods is still on the team is that he would cost money to cut, so having a higher CBA should allow for that cut after June 1st. Also, I seem to remember Edwards talking about how important a pass rushing DE is, so Hicks should be as a good as a backup. Shields retiring doesn't buy your rebuilding effort much either, I think we have a lot of talent at guard, tackle is the issue on this offense.

I will have to see the offense before I make any judgement on if it is Marty ball or not. The number 10 seems a bit extreme as much as we ran the ball late. I think he just picked the number as a way of saying we may run more early in games, because 10 more rushes a game puts at 680 rushes, with the closest to that over the last 5 years was the Steelers with 618 (everyone else in that period is below 580). I'm not going to worry too much, as it isn't really Martyball if you actually try on 3rd down and long, don't sit on a FG lead in the first quarter, and we actually have talent at the RB position.

This is not to say I don't worry about the direction of the team, just I'm not going to panic even before FA and the draft start.

I really don't think it will change it as much as some believe. We will see much more 8 men in the box and defenses predicated on stopping LJ. I won't be suprised if he is held under 100 quite a few times with the new offense.

Good point. Im really liking the idea of Preist off the bench. It would be really nice if it allows us to better use his recieving skills.
