You can reach the playoffs with these guys and a decent supporting cast. But they are not putting a team on their back and keeping it there. They are not going to have historically significant seasons. They will do enough to keep teams paying them quite well, but they will leave you lacking when the stakes get highest.

I’ve seen some assertions about how increased crime is out of control, and while that’s much more hyperbole than based on known statistics and trends, I’ll limit my comments to the implied solution, i.e. getting harsher WRT policing.

Police in schools is not a solution, especially when kids getting involved in the minor naughtiness common to the age get thrust into the legal system, with adult consequences. A 12 – 14yo getting into a minor scuffle shouldn’t be subjected to police intervention, as “cracking down” that way does harm while teaching the kid facing consequences that will dog her life forever nothing of value. It certainly doesn’t make them want to respect laws, not when the lesson is “you never know when you’ll be busted for being normal”. In that situation, why worry about laws that you can’t understand?

I looked at the schedule of opponents again today

What looked daunting 2 months ago Now does not

Chargers, were and are daunting but we can split with them since their HC is still their HC
Raiders, same QB, tough team
Broncos, well they have a QB and a D

I would think at worst we go 4-2

NFC West – 3-1 or 2-2 at worst
AFC South – 3-1 at worst

Bills, Bengals, Rams – all tossups

10-12 wins

While you may not have been entirely serious with that last bit, it may actually be accurate. The league’s always prevented embedding of videos that include game footage, or at least forced the viewer to watch on YT, and has been drifting toward a model where the only way you can watch is by paying a fee.

Of course, that’s completely at odds with their attempts to spread interest in the NFL overseas, since why would someone who isn’t a fan shell out good money in order to learn to watch a sport they’ve never seen? Site like ours, and also YT channels could serve as international ambassadors, but when you’re all about control, that looks too much like the little guys making a little $$$ at their expense. The zero-sum game mentality’s not logical here.

At a guess, they view the platform to be a fan’s one-and-done place to watch games. Those who actually want to analyze film aren’t given an easy time of it, though of course I’m working from your account of the system. Dan might have some useful insight, though.

I have been watching different games, but they all kick out around the 3rd qtr and drop out of the NFL app. Then you spend forever getting back to where you were WRT the time left in the game and within 5 minutes it kicks out again. Frustrating…..

Trey Smith was another medical risk. All things considered, I expect Team Veach to have done their due diligence on the medical side, as I seem to recall them checking off on at least one other player with medical questions.

If there’s one thing that working with Reid since he got his break is thorough attention to detail. Doesn’t make him perfect, but from what I see in league FOs, it’s not very common.

Chiefs keep say 7 at the most WR’s

Hardman
Smith-Shuster
Valdez-Scandling
Skyy Moore

so the next 3 have to play special teams also

Kemp

or actually have upside

There are a lot of reasons that taek doesn’t make sense. Chief among them is his cost; relatively cheap given the rookie contract. He isn’t unproductive and he offers a skillset no other receiver on the roster has

So I decided to throw on some Wisconsin Defense vs Rutgers and a couple of things stood out. Chenal is a beast, Pacheco is the best pass blocking RB the Chiefs have, and Rutgers really couldn’t block for shit.

ForeverRanger91
Reply to  Tony Sommer
05/04/2022 6:34 pm

People were concerned about Pacheco’s ability to catch out of the backfield but any time he was in on a passing situation he was likely blocking someone. I started watching it for Chenal not even thinking that Pacheco played for Rutgers. I came away impressed with Pacheco as a runner to the point where I could see him making the 53 and maybe even taking over the starting job. Rutger’s OL made the Chiefs SB 55 OL look like The Great Wall of Dallas.

Pacheco played behind one of the most overmatched olines I have ever seen. It’s hard to get a read on his ability to read blocks because his oline rarely made good blocks. He’s a wild card for sure.

BleedingRedAndGold

05/04/2022 8:19 pm

I could see him making the 53, but not as the starting RB, not this season. Pass blocking’s definitely useful, but even if he turns out to have good hands, Reid likely won’t put receiving duties on him out of the gate. It seems to have become a pattern with him.

What I want to see this season is the return of the screen game. Reid’s teams have traditionally been very good at it, but it’s been notably lacking in the last two seasons. I mark that down to Covid two seasons ago, and an OL that needed work last year, a case of ‘if you can’t get it right by his standard, they don’t do it much’. I see no reason that the situation will continue going forward, now that he has the time and tools to work the offense up properly, in this regard.

I think Reid’s screen game requires a choreography from the o line that takes some time to get down pat…

EDGE: GEORGE KARLAFTISKANSAS CITY CHIEFSHM: Kingsley EnagbareGreen Bay Packers | Aidan HutchinsonDetroit Lions
Karlaftis has an easy path to the field thanks to Kansas City’s lack of edge talent in a defense that covets his exact skill set. The comp for Karlaftis from many in the pre-draft process was former New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck because of the inside-outside versatility when rushing the passer. Tuck’s two highest-graded seasons came under now-Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo in 2007 and 2008 with the Giants.
