The Final Tally On The Robert Griffin III Trade Is In, And It's A Disaster For Washington

2

Washington got: Robert Griffin III (#2 pick, 2012) St. Louis got: Michael Brockers (#14 pick, 2012, via additional trade with Cowboys) Janoris Jenkins (#39 pick, 2012) Isaiah Pead (#50 pick, 2012, via additional trade with Bears) Rokevious Watkins (#150 pick, 2012, via additional trade with Bears), released in 2013 Alec Ogletree (#30 pick, 2013, via additional trade with Falcons) Stedman Bailey (#92 pick, 2013, via additional trade with Falcons) Zac Stacy (#160 pick, 2013, via additional trade with Texans)* Greg Robinson (#2 pick, 2014, via Washington) This is a perfect example of the value of trading down in the draft.

Remember this?

Interesting to look back at how the Texan faithful thought the season (and this upcoming game) would go back in June

Chiefs vs. Titans: The opening line

Steve_in_RI runs down the numbers on the Chiefs, who are 2.5 point favorites over the Titans.

Friday Night Updated Line Moves

The Chiefs, who were 4 point favorites (and 4.5 in some places) when last we looked, have gone down to 3.5 despite a solid majority backing KC. Some decent money coming in on the Giants. I still think the boys in red survive.

Chiefs vs. Jags: The opening line

Greetings AP. For the 2013 season, I have decided to bring back a feature I did for the 2011 season in which I analyze the Vegas line for the upcoming game every Monday.

Great read for those on the fence about Priest Holmes as a Hall of Famer

I admit, I am not a Holmes HOF supporter. But these stats tell an interesting tale of how Holmes stacks up using advanced metrics against every RB over a 22 year span. Hint: It's better than you might think.

Chiefs Super Bowl Odds Improve for the First Time

4

I have a few online accounts, with Bookmaker.eu as my primary one. The Chiefs had been +4500 (45 to 1) since the odds first came out, but for the first time they have been upgraded to +4000 (40 to 1), tying them with the Miami Dolphins. This puts the Chiefs tied for the 8th best odds in the AFC and just behind the Colts who are at +3800. Point being, someone has been throwing some coin on our Chiefs

Interesting quotes from the offensive guys. I like that D-Bowe is very much on board.

Davis has 2nd fastest "Speed Score" since 1999

10

According to the metric used by Football Outsiders, Knile Davis' "Speed Score" is the 2nd highest in the database's history, ahead of guys like Chris Johnson and Darren McFadden. Interesting read and gives me a little more optimism about this pick.

Plenty others out there. Also injury prone but does have the "potential" tag on him in most reports.

"According to ESPN Stats and Information, last season Kansas City had one sack, two batted passes and three tackles for loss by its nose tackle"

We wanted a hole filled. If Poe beats these outstanding numbers and Berry returns to his 2010 form, look out world.

I love the pick... As I wrote recently in a fanpost, I was still very open to Poe and am glad it went down. If as many people here at AP trust RAC and Pioli like they say they do, then trust that they made the right call here. Judging by RAC's comments, this was who they wanted from the get-go and to me that's a solid sign considering his defensive mind. Despite the fact that we are all amateur GMs and know-it-alls, let's enjoy the moment and bask in the glow of an almost complete elite defense.

It's been talked about a great deal, but I'm curious as to what everyone thinks. There is talk about Vontaze Burfict perhaps not even being drafted at all and having to go to the Arena league. What round would you approve the Chiefs taking a chance on him? I believe there are teams out there that will take the chance and I strongly feel like a team like New England is one of them. Whether the Chiefs are one is another story altogether. Thoughts?

I certainly realize the risks and he has been dissected here a lot. But is he worth a mid to late round pick, when (unlike Poe) there is game tape that shows a dominant player when he is stable?

Three for the Price of One

Draft mania clearly has AP in a frenzy, and while I have not been able to weigh in much lately, I thought I would chime in a few thoughts. This is just my take on having read hundreds of comments...

Vote for Dwayne Bowe for this year's Madden Cover!

He is up against Calvin Johnson in Round 1. He will need our help. Forget the jinx, let's get some new young Chiefs fans with D-Bowe on the cover!
