Vision and Identity

The Kansas City Chiefs to date have averaged 13.7 (31st) points per game. While the Chiefs Defense has surrendered 22.3 (20th) points per game, many of those points were scored by the enemy on short fields created by the Offense. The Chiefs also showed an inability to score on a short field themselves when in the Red-Zone. Scott Pioli can answer the 2012 Chiefs riddle in numerous ways via re-signing our own Free Agents and those of other teams this off-season. We have been told and or came to believe that we made extravagant bids on some free agents in the past only to be rejected. 2012 will have the same results on certain key players we wish to have, so I have tried to answer the riddles sans Free-Agents. If we get em Great, if not so what.

I do expect that we will Re-sign our key Free agents Dwayne Bowe and Brandon Carr. We also re-sign Le'Ron McClain, Kyle Orton, Jovan Belcher, and Barry Richardson.

5 138 Kansas City Kellen Moore QB Boise State - Winner, Like Tim Tebow

6 169 Kansas City Dan Herron RBF Ohio State - Thomas Jones replacement

7 201 Kansas City Tony Bergstrom OT Utah - Scott Pioli Double - down

  • David DeCastro will take over Left or Right Guard depending on Jon Asamoah. Both played Right Guard in College. Ryan Lilja will become depth in this scenario.
  • Dwayne Allen will supplant Pope as the backup TE, and compete with Moeaki for starts, and will allow us to cut the chaff in the position.
  • JM Johnson and D Johnson will become a superb ILB Duo, Jovan Belcher will become depth if re-signed.
  • Matt McCants along with Tony Bergstrom, Mims and Richardson get to all compete for two-three jobs. Good luck guys :)
  • Kellen Moore? why yes, he gets to compete with Ricky Stanzi. While Matt Cassel gets to compete with Kyle Orton for the starters job. Todd Haley would be so Proud.
  • Dan Herron takes over that Thomas Jones role and competes for playing time with a possibly rejuvenated Jack Battle.

Depth? We have some depth. I hope so

Whatever happens with Kyle Orton the Kansas City Chiefs identity is of a Running team. Selecting Three Offensive Lineman, a TE that excels at both the run block and the catch, and a solid Running Back will allow the Chiefs to pound the ball. Kyle Orton at QB will allow us to catch up in games we get behind the clock on.

That is my Vision of the 2012 Chiefs and addresses the Identity that we have lacked this season.

What do you see as the Identity of these Kansas City Chiefs?
