OK...My turn...A Cure for What Ails Us

The Spring and Summer of our discontent is nearly upon us. Chiefs’ fans across the nation will be sharing the truth (as they see it)about our needs and how to address those needs, whether it be...

The summer of our discontent

Two and one half months of darkness is descending upon us. The euphoria over the firing of Pioli and the hiring of Dorsey and Reid has given way to the excitement of free-agency, which in turn led...

Know when to hold 'em...know when to fold 'em

You’ve got to hand it to Dorsey and Reid. They’ve got stones the size of watermelons. I’ve got to wonder, were they too busy focusing on their previous teams to notice Pioli’s career crashing and...

As Things Stand Now...(game)

Eric Winston is released. Wow! I didn’t see that coming. After I got over the shock, I started thinking about the ramifications of the move. Then it hit me. This could be a game! How about these...

The Most Important Event of the Off-Season

What is the single most important event coming up for our Chiefs? Is it: 1. The release of Matt Cassel? 2. The drafting of Geno Smith first overall? 3. The signing of B. Albert? 4. The signing...

Plan of Action

I’m sure the new Chiefs’ regime has a plan of action that will take them through the draft at the end of April. I think I have a reasonably logical plan of action. Step one is to identify team...

Patience, Please

I’m a patient person. I’m also a Chiefs’ fan. I realize there are many differing views of what the team needs to do during the off season to ensure there isn’t a repeat of the Pioli era. Opinions...

Fiddling while the ship sinks

We’re now over half-way through our bye week, and accomplished what? Crennel is still the HC. That ought to light a fire under some of our players (not). Pioli has talked! It remains to be seen how...

Half Empty, Half Full, pt. dos

Yesterday, I briefly touched on the considerations that should go into the decision to change QB’s. I tried to take no position on the question. Today, I’m going to state my position that the C...

Half empty, or half full?

OK…there is a rising groundswell of support for the benching of Cassel. I am not impressed by Cassel, and never have been. When Pioli traded for him, I hoped it was a stop-gap measure to hold down...

Taking the Bull by the tail...

There comes a time in the affairs of men (and the Chiefs) when we must take the bull by the tail, and face the issue. This team sucks! By the time when this team can record its first victory, we...

"Don't worry...Be ...." uh, wait a minute...

"Don’t worry about it, it’s only preseason!" BS! The Packers, Ravens, Giants, Saints, and Pats have earned that privilege for their fans. When the Chiefs have gone deep into the play-offs for a...

Confidence & Credibility, pt. deaux (doo bee do)

I’m baaack! Alaska was cool, and I enjoyed hob-knobbing with bald eagles, Orcas, and humpback whales. Somehow, I did without Chiefs’ news for almost two weeks. Not surprisingly, upon my return home...

Do it NOW!

OK, we’re coming down to the wire. The draft is a scant two weeks away. The KC brain trust has some decisions to make. Is DeCastro the guy we want? What do we do if Richardson falls to #11? What...

Confidence and Credibility

To paraphrase Shakespeare, I come to praise Pioli, not to castigate him. Two words come to mind when discussing Mr. Pioli; confidence, and credibility. Currently, Mr. Pioli receives high marks in...

Wow! I just finished reading and contemplating KC Phenom’s research piece, "NFL Draft Research Series, Pt 1, QB’s". The evidence doesn’t lie. It would seem the best chance the Chiefs have of...

A Precautionary Tale (or two)

I’m going to examine two slightly related historical events. Both concern a pair of NFL QB’s. Hopefully, there is something to be learned from each episode. The Chiefs currently...

With Research; Why Orton is my Choice

Before I made an emotional decision on which QB I’d like to see behind center next year, I did my diligent research. I had available the "NFL Replay" recordings of the Chiefs-Chargers game (one of...

Musings about good QB's

It is starting to look like we won’t get a shot at one of the top QB’s in April’s draft. Furthermore, the Chiefs will be good enough to draft in the bottom third of the draft in the forseeable...

What happens? Huh?

It’s no secret to loyal Chiefs’ fans that there is trouble in River City. It seemed that fan expectations were on the rise after our four game winning streak. I’m afraid many of us misinterpreted...

Half Empty-Half Full Redeaux (too)

In this second installment of “Half Empty; Half Full”, we’ll take a look at the Chiefs’ shut-out win over the Raiders. 28-0 sounds like a pretty lop-sided game, and, in fact, the Raiders’ offense...

Half Empty, or Half Full?

  The past two or three days have seen a lot of conjecture about what the Raiders’ acquisition of Carson Palmer means to the Chiefs. As a Chiefs’ fan, I can’t worry about what the opposition does...

We may need to look deeper

  Another week, another blow-out loss. This team was 10-6 last season! Can three players make this big a difference? I doubt it. I’m sure there are many of us who know exactly what is wrong with...

OK...it's like there is a news blackout. What's the situation with Baldwin? Is he practicing with the team? Will he play Sunday,or is he deeply in Haley's doghouse?
