CRAIG GLAZER: KANSAS CITY CHIEFS CONTINUE TO DISAPPOINT FANS!!!
TKC NOTE: Important Kansas City sports analysis tonight from our friend Craig Glazer that mythbusts recent mainstream media hype regarding recent decisions from the Chiefs.
As usual, the Chiefs disappoint their fans
‘Chiefs and Chopper, Chiefs and Chopper…’
(Oh, we’re done with that!)
Well, we were all fired up. Clark Hunt signed the best coach available, Andy Reid. He followed that up with signing the best quarterback available; Alex Smith from the 49’ers. He continued to put smiles on fans faces by signing Wide Receiver Dwayne Bowe to a long term contract. They even had me on the bandwagon to a certain extent. Remember my last Chiefs story just over a week ago I said, ‘If they can sign a big time Wide Receiver like Mike Wallace or Greg Jennings then the Chiefs are on the move.’ We also talked about getting a tight end since we don’t have one, like Green Bay’s Jermichael Finley. None of that happened. In fact, no effort was made to sign any big name talent.
What Clark Hunt did was sign a good back up in Chase Daniels from the New Orleans Saints and former MU Tiger. He is surely an upgrade from Brady Quinn. However, YOU are an upgrade from Brady Quinn. I’ll go a step further and say Chase may be an upgrade from now departed Matt Cassell. That’s where the fairy tale ends. The Chiefs have also added Hussein Abdullah from the Vikings, Anthony Fasano from the Dolphins, Mike DeVito and Bryan Mattison from the Jets, Dunta Robinson from the Falcons and Donnie Avery from the Colts. These players are known as ‘hole plugs’. Nobody in this group has been very successful so far recently in the NFL. The most interesting of the group is probably Indianapolis Colt Donnie Avery. Donnie is fast and he did have more than 700 receiving yards last year to go with his whopping three touchdown catches. Donnie seems to be a little injury prone, shocker, oh yeah he had a guy throwing at him by the name of Andrew Luck. Luck was so impressed he didn’t bitch when they let this guy go. The rest of the group have the potential to be anything from a ‘no-show’ to being ‘slightly above average’. Just like last year’s off-season Free Agency. All of them are already off, gone, they cut every one of them.
What really gets me is that Wes Welker wanted to leave the New England Patriots. Wes felt that he was under-appreciated both financially and emotionally. Wes Welker is a game changer. You have a hot young quarterback in Alex Smith and, outside of Bowe, he has nobody to throw to. You add Welker, you add three to five wins. Can you say playoffs? Had I been Clark Hunt, I would have flown Wes in on a private jet, got him the best suite in Kansas City, personally picked him up with Andy Reid and Alex Smith and licked his ass like a slurpie and offered him anything he wanted to sign with the Chiefs like the following: three years, thirty million dollars, eighteen million guaranteed upon signing. Instead, Wes Welker signed with our rivals, the Denver Broncos, now the favorite to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl, for a mere six million a year for two years total of 12 million dollars…oh yeah, and that big three hundred thousand dollar bonus. That’s right Chiefs fans, the best slot receiver in modern NFL history and we didn’t even make an offer. Now, how much money did we waste on Tyson Jackson and Glenn Dorsey? And we couldn’t even make an effort to make an offer to get this guy?
Sure we could have a great draft and you know how well we’ve done in that area over the years, maybe plug a few more holes.
Right now, you have the exact same team as last year, you know, the one with five All-Pros and two victories. As of now you have a new quarterback with the same two weapons; Dwayne Bowe and Jamal Charles. Again, unless something great happens that I’m not seeing, you can expect six to eight wins from your Kansas City Chiefs. Joy! Remember we’re building for the future. The NFL is a ‘win now’ league. Take a look at San Francisco and Seattle. Those are two examples of ‘do it right now’ and they did.
I am off the bandwagon. Go Royals! Yes, the Kansas City Royals have a legitimate shot at the post-season. I don’t see that with the Chiefs. Enjoy!
