Again I will say I am a fan of Haley and Pioli and believe on giving both some time to turn this ship around. As I reflect on the Chiefs, one thing I constantly ask myself is 'why is this team such a mess'? I will say I have lots of credit to give Herm and Carl.
They let Casey Wigman go and look how well he is doing in DonkeeLand (dang Donks) and then instead of drafting a TRUE LEFT TACKLE in Ryan Clady (yip another stud with the dang Donkees) we draft Dorsey and Brandon Albert, a left Guard in college.
Wow, what if we had drafted BOTH of them and still had Wigman. That would be NICE.
And that gets me to thinking.... we could have drafted both of them BECAUSE we were STUPID enough to trade #69. Nice decision Carl and Herm, that one worked out real well..BRILLIANT. We also decided to take Mr Fumble in college, Jamal Charles. Is he fast...yes, can he be a threat in many ways..yes, will he ever be a force in the NFL with his ongoing propensity to fumble...heck no.
Carl and Herm made horrible..and I mean horrible decisions on our offensive and defensive lines. We made moves to shore up the D-Line last year. If we do not put a great deal of focus on our O-Line this off season.... I will lose a lot of faith in Pioli and Company.
For now...Matt Cassel, I appreciate your mettle and know it will get tested again this week.
Go Chiefs, beat Washington!!
