Tuesday Night Open Thread : Goodbye, Romeo. Thanks for the Defense, Green Bay, and Andy.

The last Chiefs HC with a losing season retires from the game. He was dealt a bad hand, but had he succeeded here, we wouldn’t have Reid and, most likely, a shiny trophy

Well, the youtube won’t show here, but it’s the GB game that kept him our coach, and led to Andy taking over after the next season

To address a few of the comments, I have always broke down offenses by looking at the four best options on a team. Others may contribute here and there but an offense runs on the star players.

We had
1) Kelce
2) Hill
3) Hunt
4) Watkins

Hell of an offense when Watkins is your fourth option.

We had
1) Kelce
2) Hill
3) Great Interior Line (with a coach who prefers to pass)
4) Combo of DRob, Hardman, and Pringle

I blame Andy and Bienemy for not using option three more but that is a huge drop of for number four.

In their defense, we did not posses a RB that exuded confidence that they could reliably gain more and hold on to the ball going up the middle.

I will also blame the coaches for not finding a better fourth alternative – Fortson before his injury could have been a candidate and McKinnon catching passes on the outside towards the end of the season. Did Gore get a serious opportunity to surpass MEH-CEH who is at best a little above average?

EAFOX
06/07/2022 8:07 pm

Basically, I see two types of offensive philosophies – overkill with what is working and throwing everything in the playbook at you. In the NFL, you have to find the right mixture. Dramatic examples – BB when he will run 40 times in one game and 3 times in the next. Think SF in their run to the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, think of KC when McKinnon seemed unstoppable late in the season but never got more playing time and, before his injury, Fortson proved to be a reliable target but was rarely targeted between the twenties. Andy is definitely the second type – we all await the trick plays but, sometimes, when in a dogfight, you need to flip to the other side. Our interior line dominated some games – why not more runs up the middle that is eating up seven or eight yards at a clip – no matter what point of the game.

Without being in the know, hard to figure out how much is Andy or EB or Mahomes in any given situation. I blame the coaching staff for taking so long to figure out how to attack the three deep look. Did not take a genius to figure out different things to try in those situations.

EAFOX
06/07/2022 7:47 pm

We all know many of the problems whenever the Chiefs get in third down – especially third and long. Bad tackle play and the sad sack collection of number two receivers is the primary culprit. However, I would also take a shot at several of our first down and second down calls. There were many games this year where I could easily predict what the Chiefs would do next – before seeing the formation.

As far as tackle play went last year, especially early on, it wasn’t actually as bad as it seemed, and a good share of gaffes in that area were actually on Mahomes. Mainly it was a matter of bad habits picked up when our Ts were athletic, but the IOL was soft, such as dropping back too far and bailing instead of stepping up. Simply putting a solid IOL in front of him didn’t make those tendencies vanish, he had to re-learn, so as to not put his protectors in bad positions. This year should look much different, even with the same Ts.

Brown improved but he still is lacking when facing speed rushers on third and long. Niang was schooled before his injury and was, to me, a major disappointment. Mahomes shares some of the blame but the vast bulk belongs to the tackles.

BleedingRedAndGold
Reply to  EAFOX
06/07/2022 8:29 pm

I disagree with the categorization of “vast bulk”, but I won’t try to talk you around WRT Mahomes’ share.

What’s being left out is last year’s line was built from scratch, and they didn’t really get settled in until past the halfway point in the season. The other thing I think I haven’t made clear is that I’m not going here to defend the gaffes, but rather to say that there’s good reason for optimism in the OL this year. Pretty much everything that was wrong is correctable, given time and mutual experience. We’ll be going in this year with a line that’s developed cohesion, rather than starting from nothing. That can be built on, and as you speculate, it opens up the run game more.

EAFOX
Reply to  BleedingRedAndGold
06/07/2022 8:37 pm

I do agree with the point about being cohesive – though a tackle being beat on the outside is more reflective on him than the line in totality. I would also put some blame on the play calling as well as formations – how often did we roll away from a struggling tackle or put someone out there to chip on them – I believe we led the league in the number of times we put our tackles on islands the last couple of years. Not completely down on Niang but he does need to feel the pressure to raise his game.

Yes, and Mahomes to Kelce ought to be analyzed, statistically and otherwise. It’s an extremely effective connection, but I suspect that’s hidden because while they have a large highlight reel, I suspect that lost in the standard analysis is how dominant they are when it comes to important plays, which aren’t as flashy and don’t ring up the stats.

But that’s an absolutely fresh thought, so thank you for asking it. If this new line of thought leads anywhere, I expect you’ll see it.

Speaking of Addams Family, I’m intrigued by Tim Burton’s Wednesday that comes out later this year.

Big Ben got on social media and chastised Watson – says there is the right way to meet women – the very old fashioned way.

Depends on how this proceeds – If these cases turn towards paying for sex and such, I would say a year does the trick. If the outcome is more force, I expect a punishment even beyond two years.

Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio believes the Browns could void Deshaun Watson’s contract if he’s suspended for conduct related to the latest allegations against him. Florio said Watson’s contract with Cleveland — which made him the highest paid player in NFL history — “exempts from the standard default/guarantee void language a suspension imposed by the league” in connection with the known sexual assault allegations known to the team at the time of the signing. On Monday, a 24th lawsuit was filed against Watson for sexual assault, the second lawsuit against Watson in a week. Florio said “if Watson eventually is suspended for the conduct alleged in the 24th lawsuit, the Browns possibly will be able to void his guarantees and move on from him, and possibly to recover a significant portion of his signing bonus.” Such a dramatic turn of events, Florio added, is hardly guaranteed. Such a move would allow the Browns to move on from Watson without him ever taking a snap for the team. The organization’s public image has been tarnished whether or not Watson takes the field for the Browns. We could see the team make quick amends with Baker Mayfield if Watson is lost for the season — or longer. 

so where does that leave the trade between Cleveland and Houston?

Watson finally found his new home on March 20, as he and a 2024 sixth-round pick were traded to Cleveland in exchange for the 13th and 107th overall selections in this year’s draft along with a first and third-round pick in 2023 and a first and fourth in 2024.May 3, 2022

The Times reported that Watson booked appointments with at least 66 massage therapists over a 17-month period from fall 2019 through spring 2021. That number is in contradiction with Watson’s public statements that he hired around 40 massage therapists during his five NFL seasons.

Brendan Daly impressed with Chiefs’ rookie linebackers
The Kansas City Chiefs infused their already young and talented linebacker corps with more youth and talent this offseason. The team bolstered a group headlined by Nick Bolton and Willie Gay Jr. with a trio of rookie linebackers, adding to a position that has become a strength for the team.

“I’d say all of those three rookies (Leo Chenal, Mike Rose and Jack Cochrane) have come into a moving train in a lot of ways, in terms of where we’re at volume-wise,” Chiefs inebacker coach Daly said. “A couple of weeks into the offseason program, they’ve been inundated with a lot of stuff in a very short period of time. I’ve been impressed with the way they’ve worked at it and handled it.”

One thing is for certain, this room has no shortage of talent. Veterans, free agents and rookies — they’re all creating a competitive environment in which the entire position group can prosper.

Denver Broncos – Odds to win AFC West (+260) 
 
There has been a thought around the league for the past few seasons that if the Denver Broncos were able to get a quarterback, they would be a contender in the AFC. Well this offseason, the Broncos traded for Super Bowl Champion Russell Wilson. With Wilson in the fold, the Broncos are +260 to win the AFC West and +900 to win the AFC with only the Bills, Chiefs, and Chargers having shorter odds to win the AFC. 
 
The Broncos are set up to have a good season but they have to win games in their division, which happens to be the toughest in the NFL. Last season, the Broncos were 1-5 vs. AFC West rivals. The AFC West is the only division with two quarterbacks who have won a Super Bowl. Additionally, America’s quarterback, Justin Herbert, also plays in the AFC West. While Derek Carr doesn’t have the fanfare the other QB’s do, he may have the best weapon in the division with Davante Adams now rocking the Raiders’ Silver and Black. Carr is also the most tenured QB in the AFC. Wilson makes the Broncos better on paper but I need to see it on the field before I crown them AFC West Champs. PointsBet is reporting 29% of the money in this market backing the Broncos, making them No. 2 in bet count behind the Chargers.
