Just wanted to start off by saying that I love A.P. I don't write much, but I'm reading often. I love hearing all of the different opinions and viewpoints of where we are, and where we think we are headed. Just for the record, I would be a Kool-Aid addict. I don't think it can be stressed enough how important it is to bring in winners. I love the approach of the G.M. on down to the players. When you set the blueprint of an organization and the expectations of the players-you need to stick to those core principles. That's what they're doing.
Of course there will be rough spots and rough weeks, but the team on the top of the mountain didn't fall there. In today's "Instant Gratification" world, people expect winning immediately. The most important thing right now is progress, and it's hard after last week for everyone not to see that progress is being made.
As far as FA and the draft I've come to one conclusion - We are going to get better and I trust the guys in charge to make decisions that will ultimately lead us back to the top. But my wish list is... Vince Wilfork. Signing Wilfork to a multi-year deal would solidify the D-Line for years to come and make everyone else around them better.
I also strongly believe that the better our record the lower we might draft, but that's also less guaranteed money to a rookie and more towards any free agents.
I'm living in Charger-land and working at a sports memorabilia store about 2 miles from Qualcomm-and wearing a Cassel Jersey by the way. So I get the beautiful pleasure of talking about our Chiefs everyday to Charger fans. They actually have some pretty good things to say about where they think we are headed just so you guys know.
I strongly agree with a post from Krayfish about turnovers and penalties. I don't know the stats but a well-coached team that may be undertalented against some of the teams they're playing can't beat themselves in those areas. We are disciplined in an area that some struggling teams without proper leadership are failing. I'll be waiting for our Chiefs to come down here Sunday and I'll be there to see the game on Sunday.
