“We have some guys returning that were on that Super Bowl team, too. So we’ve got great depth and there’ll be competition,” Reid told NFL Network’s Steve Mariucci on Wednesday’s Schedule Release ’21. “And as you know, Mooch, competition brings out the best in everybody. And so, we’ve got that now on the offensive line and these guys will battle it out. The kids that were on that Super Bowl are tough kids, it just wasn’t our day. And things didn’t quite work out right, it’s not all their blame for sure. And that’s not where we were going with this. We just hadn’t done a whole lot recently with the offensive line. You need to take care of that bunch, so that’s where we went.”

It’s official! I’m booked for my first ever Chiefs game! 41 years in the making! Chargers week 3. 13th row behind our bench! Can’t wait! Thanks to all who gave me advice on here the other night! Wish I could’ve hung out as I’m sure the convo got even more in depth.

Also, this trade for Hughes. My take is that he has a 6th round value for us regardless of where he was originally drafted. If he provides better than a 6th rounder should do / normally does, we win that deal. I think Veach made a pretty good trade. We’ll see how it plays out.

Wasnt even a 6th rounder. Traded back from the 6th to the 7th. Basically the vikings were going to cut him and were willing to take a half a pack of gum that had been sitting on the dashboard for 6th months for him.

Fair point. Sometimes scheme change or even just a coaching change is all guys need to start to realize their potential. Let’s hope he gets a full season under his belt this year and does well. Definitely helps with our depth I’d say.

From a Vikings’ fan site comments section about how the deal went down between Minnesota and KC for Mike Hughes:

“Rick: “We got the perfect guy for you to get yourselves back to the superbowl”…”We took him in the 1st…but we will give him to you for a 2nd round”

KC: <Static>

Rick: “Okay Okay, A third?”

KC:<Static>

Rick: “Not even a 7th?”

KC: “We will give you a 6th because of how sorry we are for you”

Veach is a hard baller man. Breeland is finding that out the hard way

The difference between our other GMs and Brett Veach is when Brett signs a marginal player, I believe it will work, instead of thinking it’s just another example of the GM trying to cheap out. Maybe because it usually does.
