The "Not For Long" 53

Ub5jq Brian-waters_medium
We Say goodbye far to often in this sport. Age is not usually the reason for a player moving on. A good GM accounts for age though in the final analysis. Great players play for many years and sometimes the money versus performance overwhelms a Fan Favorite. We say good luck to Brian and Mike, Ron and Brodie, Shawn and a number of others. They will always be Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL History books.

Let's look at the possible 2011 Chiefs 53. How long does a NFL Franchise stay the Same? A Day. The Cadre of core players are always in Flux, but usually 2-3 years with some stalwarts that will last 7 or more. Who are the Chiefs going to build this Dynasty around that we talk some dream about here on AP?

Just information to ponder the future with. The Running Back position gets very light size-wise in 2012, the Offensive and Defensive lines get thin on numbers. Re-signing our CB duo, our Place Kicker Succop, and Dwayne Bowe are all questions that need answers. Happily, the Chiefs defensive core is in place for 2011-2014 with only Flowers/Carr and Dorsey/Gilberry as question marks.
