The NFL is a great league made greater by wonderful fans cheering on their respective franchise's. I can think of no greater fans from a knowledgeable perspective than KC Chiefs fans. To exchange barbs, words and insight on the game the way I have this past week with Kansas City Chiefs fans is as an ejoyable experience as I have ever had here in my brief 2 years of being a part of SB Nation football blogs. It is one thing to talk football. It is another thing to really talk football and you guy's are to be commended for improving the football IQ of this fan.
To be more specific, Chiefsfan85, averagegatsby, Bajah07, CPT .Caveman and hmills110 were great. A special shout out to upamtn and neiowakcfan for being paticularly entertaining and hospitable.
Chiefs fans, in my mind, have very little to be worried about moving forward. Pioli is as a fine a judge of talent as we have in this league, Romeo Crennel can make chicken salad out chicken soup and Haley has everyone buying into the program now.
Pieces needed to grow and advance in my opinion. Start with a young, powerful and motivated zero technique to anchor your DL, a pure two-way 5 technique and a talented SAM Backer opposite Tamba Hali. Add a supremely talented/impact stretch the field WR with size across from Dwayne Bowe coupled with a young stud at QB to push Matt Cassel. These moves would put the Chiefs right back into the thick of things next season assuming health is not an issue.
Good luck and I will see you guys down the road. I am sure of that.
