Let's face it. Our team is erratic. Brilliant on some plays, unorganized and unintelligent on others. The Chiefs find ways to lose games, not win them. For example Monty Beisel not downing a kick that clearly should have been downed inside the 5 yard line. These are the plays that are going to kill the teams morale especially heading into Philly. However the bad, the kansas city Chiefs are only 4 players away from getting over the hump in my opinion. I'll list the players/positions we need in order of importance.
4. Safety- Mike Brown may be a great player now, towards the end of his career, but he is inconsistent and didn't fly around as much as the first game he played. We are leaning way too much on our secondary, when they aren't as great as we think. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm tired of the "Oh they're young and learning" line. It's been 4 years since Page was drafted.
3. Linebacker- Corey Mays fills the void temporarily for a missing pass rush. If we're going to swtich to a 3-4, we have to have linebackers. Derrick Johnson isn't living up to his potential at all, Vrabel is possibly only here for this year, and Tamba hasn't really done much but get stuck on blocks. We need linebackers that can come in and play NOW.
2. Offfensive Tackle- Our right side is shaky, but strengthening. One solid Right Tackle could make this offense explode. Ndukwe is a good sub for a right tackle, but is a natural Right Guard, and would succeed at that position. Goff is overrated and terrible. If Cassel had time, he could pick defenses apart Trent Green style, except we'd have a defense to go with it.
1. Wide Receiver- We did a decent job of bringing in the 1st class players from the trash can this year. Sean Ryan can't block, and he hasn't really been visible. D Bowe is getting covered every play, and still making plays. The whole gameplan is Bowe now, and teams know it. The bright spot of today's game was Bobby Wade, but the Chiefs are going to need more than just 2 people to throw to. If we get a solid number 2 receiver and a tight end who can hold is own, then we will shine.
Tell me your opinion. I feel if we had these positions upgraded, we would be a team sitting at 2-0, and surprising people.
