Whitlock - Scoffing Law is maddening

http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansas...s/15048304.htm

Scoffing Law is maddening


You ever get in a dispute with your child when you have to remind him/her that you havenít always been grown, that you used to be dumb, young and prone to lying?

My mother always says, ďAinít nothing new but the doers.Ē

Iím about to have one of those moments with Carl Peterson and the Chiefs as it relates to free-agent cornerback Ty Law.

I truly donít claim to know everything about sports. U.S. soccer just canned Bruce Arena. I donít know whether it was the right move or not. Doctors recently removed 80 percent of Barbaroís right-hind-hoof wall. I wonít second-guess their decision. According to the New York tabloids, Michael Strahanís soon-to-be ex-wife claims the defensive end tried to secretly videotape her sister. Without a look at the ďevidence,Ē I canít comment about what motivated Strahan.

I try to stick to what I know in this column space, stuff Iíve been told firsthand, stuff I know from experience.

Ty Law can significantly improve the Kansas City Chiefs. He can make them a playoff team, maybe even a Super Bowl contender. Ty Law, for my money, is the best cornerback in football. This is a fact. And itís not a fact based on a lifelong friendship, like the fact (my belief) that Jeff George can still help some NFL team.

My factual opinion about Ty Law is completely unbiased.

Iím growing irate that the Chiefs are insisting on playing a Mickey Mouse game with the best cornerback in football when Stevie Wonder, Helen Keller and Abe Lincoln can see that the Chiefsí defense is in desperate need of a top-flight corner to pair with Patrick Surtain.

The Chiefs have the cap space, the need and the right coach (Herm Edwards), so I donít see why Carl Peterson keeps stating that Ty Lawís acquisition is an ďeconomicĒ decision.

It should be a football decision. Period.

With Eric Warfield drying out the first four weeks and average corner play the rest of the season, the Chiefs finished 10-6 a year ago. Meanwhile ó stuck playing on an injury-riddled New York Jets squad ó Law put together a league-leading, 10-interception Pro Bowl season on a less-than-100-percent-healthy foot.

Would the Chiefs have qualified for the playoffs had Peterson signed Law last season? Seriously, do you think Law, his 10 interceptions, sure tackling, toughness and experience wouldíve been worth one victory?

You see why Iím getting upset?

Peterson is pretending like the Chiefs can afford to play this year without Ty Law. They canít. Oh, you can take solace in the fact that no other NFL team has met Lawís contract demands if you choose to, but I know Peterson/Chiefs have more to lose in this game of chicken than Law.

Law has three Super Bowl rings and four Super Bowl appearances. Heís proved heís a solid piece to a teamís Super Bowl equation. Rather than accept money he believes to be far below his market value, Law can wait and sign with a bad team willing to pay a little more.

Obviously thatís not ideal. But neither is signing with a good team, helping it reach its goal and being completely unhappy with your contract a year later.

The Chiefs need Ty Law more than Ty Law needs the Chiefs.

The Chiefs have suspects ó not prospects ó competing to play opposite Surtain right now. The longer this things drags out, the more I suspect Law will return to New England or sign with some desperate squad such as Arizona.

Law told me at the Pro Bowl that heís looking for $10 million in guaranteed bonuses. Iíd get creative and give it to him. Yes, heís 32 and missed nine games and the playoffs in 2004. Before the 2004 season, he was quite reliable. He held up for 16 games last year, and should only be better this year.

Not signing Ty Law would be a terrible mistake.

Alot of truth there. Ty Law's reason to play in KC has to be more than 'the money' or it likely won't happen

How about a 4th SB ring, and bringing a SB to KC.
We have our last best shot this year for quite some time.

This should end any chances we had of getting Ty Law. King Carl is not going to let JW have the last word on this. Two Giant Male egos here and Carl is going to have the last word. The only thing bigger than JWs ego is his gut.

There is no way Carl Peterson is going to let a columnist dictate what the team does and does not do. No effing way.

No, you weren't. You were trying to say that whatever Jason Whitlock wants, Jason Whitlock isn't going to get. Carl Peterson doesn't give a rats ass what Whitlock thinks. He's not going to forget about Ty Law just to spite a columnist.

On the contrary, I think Peterson has a big enough ego to do just that. Whitlock is very popular throughout the country, is well read, and Peterson knows this. He more than likely feels like he's being "called out", and he doesn't want to look like the guy who was "forced" into signing anyone by anybody.

One question - If this whole Ty Law thing isn't about Peterson being "one tough son-of-a-bitch", then why haven't we signed Ty Law by now?

I really think you're reaching. There is no way Carl is dumb enough to let a columnist dictate his actions. He's going to do what is best for the team, regardless of what anyone else thinks or wants.

And I believe it comes down to Herm, anyway. If Herm wants Ty Law, he WILL get him.

Ty Law wasn't signed by the Jets last year until just before training camp.
