These players will not make me stop being a Chiefs fan. In fact, I believe several of them will bring in more! The NFL likes QBs like Phillip Rivers (douche he may be, great QB he is for real) who can exploit weak Secondaries. The game simply isn't Rocket Surgery. You will find yourself in Nickel formations frequently. Of course you need a pass rush, but the game is FAST - in the shallows as one poster here described it, is where your CBs BETTER do their job.
In other words, you need it all. We have been horrible for many years now, as a result of many factors. What comes around goes around, but it don't happen in one season after many failures.
As for the front seven, I am concerned no doubt, but my concern is with the team as a WHOLE; I fail to accept anything is certain when one play ends a career. I don't think they felt the individuals available as a NT in this draft were enough "bank for their buck" to wait at least another full season (and that's if the cream of the crop are stellar) when you have so many holes to fill.
FOUR games guys. FOUR. Also known as 5 this season is improvement. If it was even remotely easy to consistently cover every need on an NFL team, nobody would suck.
