Morning Huddle – Chiefs Carry Over Massive Amount of Cap Space To 2019

Chiefs News for 1 February 2019

Chiefs to carry over $715K in cap space from 2018 | USA Today

Heading into the 2019 season, the Chiefs have a projected $35 million worth of cap space. This number is $7-10 million less than earlier projections. Still, $35 million is a manageable number, especially without carrying over a significant amount of cap from 2018. According to the NFLPA, the Chiefs will have only $715,000 carry over from 2018 to the 2019 season, which is good for the second-least in the NFL.

Chiefs’ Travis Kelce believes NFL’s overtime playoff rules are unfair | Yahoo

Kelce was asked about how the game ended Thursday on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “Felger & Mazz” radio show and admitted he thinks the playoff overtime rule should be changed to allow both teams to possess the ball.

Spagnuolo’s former assistants praise new Chiefs DC for simplifying complex schemes | KC Star

That last element, the ability to streamline complex schemes, will likely come as a welcome relief to the Chiefs’ defensive meeting rooms after years of working with Bob Sutton’s notoriously complicated game plans.

Kansas City Chiefs: Alex Smith trade one year later | KC Kingdom

We already saw what a difference it made having Patrick Mahomes in at quarterback and not Smith. The throws Mahomes made throughout the season were insane and obviously his stats were unreal. The 23-year old is likely going to win the MVP award, so yeah… I’d say this trade worked out just fine for KC.

The Kansas City Red Coaters Are Looking for New Members | The Mothership

They’re the handful of individuals, clad in red coats with a flag in hand, that help introduce the Kansas City Chiefs out onto the field each and every Sunday prior to kickoff. They come from all different walks of life, bound by a passion for the Chiefs and a desire to serve their community, and the Kansas City Red Coaters are looking for new members.

Chiefs offseason: Defense will (again) be the focus for KC, especially the secondary | The Athletic

For decades, the Chiefs have searched for a true star quarterback they can mold from within. General manager Brett Veach and head coach Andy Reid have accomplished what many would consider the first building block to a championship-winning roster with Mahomes. Yet the pressure to win the Super Bowl in 2019 — with Mahomes still playing under his rookie deal — is significant, as most of the prominent players on the roster are in their prime. The greatest objectives looming this offseason for Veach is to maintain the Chiefs’ explosive offense while, for the second consecutive year, rebuilding the defense to add more young talent. How will the Chiefs build around Mahomes and acquire defenders who can excel in new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s aggressive scheme?

The age-old argument who is more responsible for the sucess in NE, Brady or Bellicheck? When you compare the two QB’s TB and PM it is easy to tell the better QB lost. For years we have said that the reason we keep losing these games is that our QB is inferior to the other guys. I know the QB is important but it is n’t the only factor. I can now say with the fullest of confidence that TB playing for any other coach is just an above average NFL QB and nowhere near the GOAT he is made out to be.

I really feel like Mayfield should be the Rookie of the Year but that said I see the argument for Barkley.

Saquon Barkley, now is this Pepsi rookie of the year award the official one or do we have to wait for the coca cola one? Or the PFF, or Espn, or Fedex, or Kelley Blue Book?

In don’t think he was trying to be a dick. I think you guys are taking it wrong. He was essentially saying that the SB being in Atlanta made him remember his time with the falcon and he has fond memories of his time with the team. Is he not allowed to have fond memories if they aren’t with the chiefs?

Fuck that guy. See I can be a dick too. WAS one of my all time favorites, now trolling chiefs fans after being put in the hall of fame. He can fuck off. Hope he remembers he didn’t help KC win shit in the post season, and barely more than not shit in ATL.

I do think the playoff OT rules should be changed so that both teams have a chance to possess the ball but… we did have a chance to beat them in regulation. I mean, for all the Brady dick sucking going on this week let’s not forget that if Dee Ford had not lined up offsides then Brady’s season ends with an INT. That penalty had NOTHING to do with the play. Brady was gifted a Super Bowl appearance.

If not for the penalty Brady ends up going ~275 yards, 1 TD and 3 INT’s getting shown up by the new kid. The narrative is then how the defense stepped up with 3 turnovers at crucial moments to keep us in the game, and Bob is still the DC…

Incredible how much one dipshit error changed our reality.

Yeah, Brady’s career has been full of such games yet he’s still considered the GOAT by many.

Sutton would still be out after one more game, because people have been telling me that the Chiefs have been drafting for two years for Sutton’s future hypothetical 4-3 replacement DC.

I can see Reid having a contingency plan in place in case Bob was fired, but I don’t think there was a plan set in motion years ago.

It either comes down to Veach intentionally drafted 4-3 players or he’s completely incapable of drafting players that fit the scheme we run.

It doesn’t take an experienced scouting executive to see the people he brought in didn’t fit our scheme.

Not necessarily. Nnadi worked out good. Watts was good until injury. DOD fits a 4-3 better, but it’s not like he couldn’t work in a 3-4. Even speaks, the most head scratching one, can still fit our 3-4 system. The problem with him is more his size. He’s current too big to be a 3-4 OLB, and too small to be a 3-4 end. But I think he’s got the ability to play either position. So while BVs players look better in a 4-3, they aren’t completely out of place in a 3-4.

The funny thing is we haven’t officially moved to a 4-3. We are all just speculating.

Blaming that game on that penalty is a cop out. Just like the Saints blaming their game on that one penalty is a cop out. In both games the Chiefs and Saints had numerous other opportunities to win and crapped the bed.

Only two people should be blamed for the Chiefs loss. The first is Bob Sutton. The tweet of the good old days in ATL from Tony reminds me of his last unsuccessful attempt to win a playoff game. I don’t remember the team they were playing or even the exact circumstances but I do remember that the Falcons had the ball with a chance to win and the other team said “fine if you’re going to beat us though it ain’t going to be to Tony.” They double Tony at the line and dared Matt Ryan to beat them somewhere else and he couldn’t. Fast forward to this year and everybody and their grandma knew what Brady wanted to go to Edelman in the middle or Gronk down the seam. What did Sutton take away? The deep fucking ball. This wasn’t 2003 Peyton Manning changing shit at the line. Old Boob let the Patriots do exactly what they wanted to do.

Second person to blame. Andy Reid. I didn’t even give a shit about the playoff game last year. I was just looking forward to seeing what Mahomes could do this year, but when we were up by 18 at half I was at least excited to get the home playoff game monkey off our back. Then we got Suttonized by a meh QB and a coach who got fired 7 days later. 2 of the 5 worst playoff collapses in the history of the NFL came under Sutton. And Andy couldn’t fire his dumb ass. Well he let him stick around long enough to get his first postseason win as a coordinator or head coach. Good for old Boob.

That is true but if you’re looking at a game that last 60 minutes and both teams are tied at the end both teams should have the same opportunities to win the game especially when it’s to go to the Super Bowl or continue in the playoffs. I don’t blame the game on the overtime rules because they were in place before the game but I do think they should look at a change to them.

I look at it like Kansas City’s offense was clearly their strong point they put their weak point on the field for overtime. In my opinion if a team has shown that over an entire game they can tie the other team and they did that with a shitty defense or shitty offense or whatever it doesn’t matter both sides of both teams should hit the field. They did after all during the game to make a tie.
