Welp, I've returned.

Welcome, 'Hamas' Jenkins.
You last visited: 01-08-2012 at 07:08 PM

Hi all. Iím sure that a lot of you missed me and more of you didnít. To some, this post will be like a herpes outbreak. To others it may be something more pleasant, like scabies. Iím going to break my return into two separate threads. One is a football reflection thread; the other will be life updates that I know some of you would like info on.

My takes on 2012:

***** has finally been mother****ed. Thank you Clark. That sump pump of Patriot Way shit was half Millen, half Mussolini.

What a gloriously inept ****bath. My hope is that looking back in several years we will consider ourselves extremely lucky for the shitstorm ***** was awful enough to create for us. I think you could make a fair case that ***** did one of the five worst jobs in NFL history. Staggering that the man was handed four future Pro Bowlers who were under 24 years old when he got here, had the #3 and #34 picks and, over the course of four drafts, with tens of millions in cap room, added only Justin Houston, Eric Berry, and a swath of middling to replacement-level starters. Itís rare that you see such a thorough refutation of a professional philosophy. *****ís resume as a talent evaluator is as barren as his hairline.

However, we were by no means the least talented team in the league. This year was an aberration due to extremely poor coaching and bad (actually good) luck. I think that people often overlook the effect of small sample sizes in football. Matt Casselís 2010 is a great example. He threw a ton of passes that should have been intercepted. Luckily , for his worthless ass, they werenít. Luck swung the other way this year (thanks, Dex!!), and although it was rarely the difference in any one game, I think those breaks contributed to the psychological defeatism that helped crush the teamís spirit. The fumbles that bounced our way and the picks that werenít caught in 2010 caught up to the team in 2012. The 2011 Chiefs were also preposterously lucky on a game Ėto-game basis, even if they were quite unlucky from an injury perspective (their Pythag. W-L was 4-12 in 2011 despite an actual record of 7-9). Although it would have been nice to be incredibly unlucky in 2012, picking #1 this year is far better than picking #6 this year and then hanging out in the no-manís land of 5-11-8-8.

Aside from the tenure of the worst GM in franchise history, things are looking up, and not only because the Chiefs are trading as a penny stock.
Andy Reid is a very good coach. Heís not a great coach, but heís good enough. What worries me is the propensity of fans to always make a fallacious appeal to authority. It happened with ***** and the Executive of the Decade/Youíre not a GM line of refutation, and while lurking I saw similar sentiments about Reid and quarterbacks. Thatís where I think weíll get into trouble. Reid is a much better coach than he is a talent evaluator. Just because he got the most out of McNabb, Vick, or Kolb doesnít mean that he will automatically pick the best QB. The key is to get the most talented guy and get the most out of him, not blindly trust the GM or coach because they are the GM or coach. Jerry Reese has made terrible picks, Bill Belichick has made boneheaded decisions on the sideline and they are tremendous at their jobs. Football lifers arenít sacrosanct. Far too many people carried water for Herm, Haley, and ***** in spite of their better judgment because of who they were believed to be. Iím not some oracle because I soured on *****; I just happened to be right in that instance. Conversely, I was way off on Vernon Gholston, Jimmy Clausen, and (*tear*) most likely, Blaine Gabbert. This site functions best when we can have lively discussion based upon posting and support of relevant claims. Itís at its worst when itís a hive mind blindly following an imperative because someone else told them to.

I hope tonight killed any remaining holdouts of the ďDraft TeíoĒ camp. Geno Smith is, IMO, the only sensible option. It doesnít mean that heís risk free, almost no one is (look at RGIII, even). If Geno is worth taking at 12 heís worth taking at 1. We had the worst record in the league; we have 29 wins since 2006. Even if Geno is a coinflip to be a franchise QB, and he may only be that, thatís a risk worth taking. Honestly, itís a risk worth taking if heís only a 1:4 chance.

I donít really care if we switch to the 4-3, because I think Houston can play the Von Miller role in such a defense, thus obviating the issue of having two undersized DEs.

Offseason Priorities should be:
1) Re-sign Albert. Stephenson looked nice at first then degraded to piss awful.

2)
Re-sign Bowe. He is our passing offense

3)
Avoid overpaying for secondary help. Secondary players rarely provide surplus value in their second contracts. A reclamation project may be worth looking into, but signing DRC would scare me.

4)
Find a slot receiver who weíll actually play who can actually play. Wylie and McCluster are fodder. Breaston probably wants out and I canít blame him. Baldwin is the epitome of Scott *****. ďTom [Dimitroff], I wouldnít trade up for Julio Jones, [Baldwin] is just as good as him.Ē

5)
Draw and quarter Winston at the draft party. I donít care if we sign the guy who injects Winstrol into Jordan Blackís ass. I hate him.
Draft Priorities:

Aside from QB at #1, I think we can find solid secondary and WR depth in rounds 2-4. That said, there are a ton of potential players that we shouldnít pass up merely because we hope that a certain player could get it.

Ultimately, the title of this post says it all. Itís nice to be back.

God-**** Tebow and Draft Geno.

I think they were stuck inbetween a rock and a hard space. IIRC, they had to choose between franchising someone who definitely wouldn't be on the team next season or franchising someone who would (Finley?).

I think the more telling detail is that he was beaten out in preseason by a round 3 rookie after being given a nice chunk of change.

Say you guys do draft Geno. You are going to need at least one more QB, one who is capable of starting a game. I don't know about that guy being Flynn but I would think that you guys need to pick up a vet.

Chiefs need 3 QBs.

Draft Geno, sign a vet in FA, draft another QB mid draft and have the mid draft QB and vet dogfight for backup.

I expect it to be Vick honestly, he'll want a vet QB that already knows the offense.

I like having three QB's, but does anyone know if Reid prefers that?

(I really just want to get in early on what should be an epic thread)

edit: totally didn't see that Mecca is in this thread. It's like a goddamn reunion.

After Vick gets cut he's going to command a starting salary. Not his current 15.5M but certainly more than a backup would ever ask.

Nothing wrong with Campbell, Moore, or perhaps even Stanton.
