Players You Don't Want to See Starting for the Kansas City Chiefs Come Next Season?


List of players who I don't want to see starting next season

1. Matt Cassel: self explanatory

2. Jovan Belcher: To call him a liability in passing coverage would be the most titanic understatement in the history of man kind. He can't make plays at the line of scrimmage, he can't make open field tackles, and he cant pass rush to save a newborn when his name is called on a blitz. He's good for making some assisted tackles when they are 3 or 4 guys surrounding the runner but whenever he has the responsibility to make a play as an individual he is nonexistent. The Chiefs are playing with 6 in the front 7 a lot of plays when Mr. Belcher is in the starting lineup.

3. Ryan Lilja: Soft, just absolutely soft. Anytime the Chiefs face a physical defense, the welfare of whoever is starting at QB along with Jamaal Charles, is in danger to say the least. This man allows interior lineman and blitzing LBs into the backfield at will and its disgusting.

4. Kendrick Lewis: His performances like the one against the Buccaneers is what caused me to laugh hysterically when people were acting like having him back would be a significant upgrade in any shape or form. He makes solid plays on the ball as far as catching interceptions, he showed that in his first two seasons, but he is out of position faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar too much. Inconsistent tackling, doesn't have any type of recovery speed or acceleration, and tends to leave his corners on an island without any help. When you look at every pass Brady Quinn made against the Bucs (who were missing their best defensive back, if not their best defensive player), there were at least TWO men on the ball every single play down field. That's something the Chiefs miss with Kendrick Lewis in the lineup. There should be more than one man on the ball when the opposing QB gets the ball going down field. He'd be a great depth safety, but the last thing I want to see him as is a starter come next season.

These 4 men really have no business starting on a team with playoff aspirations.
