My conclusion to this research is that we do have a lot of room to get to be elite players. We are not as far away as our record indicates. We have some nice pieces in place to take this team far.


Some key thoughts to improve for next season.


1. Matt Cassel must make better reads and get the ball out of his hands faster. He was not the most sacked QB in the NFL. No more excuses. Eithe get the job done or be on your way. He threw the same amount of INT's as Peyton Manning but his completion % was a terrible 55%. Some of that is WR drops but even so thats not good enough.

Its either an accuracy problem or throwing to a covered guy and getting it batted away.

Weis will surely help to solve some of these issues.

2. Jamaal Charles is the future of the Chiefs. Keep this guy active throughout the game. Dont run him in the ground. I can see a good 20-25 carries a game to be healthy. Get him a backup bruising RB to take some carries.

3. Our WR must get better. This is crucial to our teams offensive success. If the ball is thrown to them they have to make the catch or atleast make a play on the ball. DBowe must step up and be the number 1 guy. You cant always get by just by making the spectacular catch. You have to catch everything. We have to get some more hands on the WR corp. We have to resign Chris Chambers.

4. We have to draft a starting Center in the Draft. That is priority number one. I think our Offensive Line will be a lot better after having a year to gel. We dont need any drastic changes.

5. We need a big NT to take up blockers.

6. We need atleast one sure fire ILB like McClain or Dansby.

7. We need a FS to replace McGraw. Eric Berry or a FA. A young athletic guy who is a ball hawk.

8. We need a solid KR/PR to make plays and get us good field position.
