Let me start off by saying I have been a LONG TIME reader of AP. Since its humble beginnings I have read many stories and enjoyed damn near all of them . There are quite a few talented writers on this staff and also some great fanposts!! while this is my first ever post on here I just want to be clear that I am definately not an english major or a journalist so please excuse my lack of correct stucture or puntuation. Thank you very much.
Now on to my story.... (finally!!) As i was driving around town (virginia beach.va. hence "vbchief") that billy joel song popped on the radio "Only the good die young" And i was kinda singing along because i dont know all the words , the chorus is what got me thinking.
The core of this Chiefs team ( Charles,Hali , Flowers , etc. etc.) are dying . These are the guys that we all know are the pillars of this team. Yet all of thier talent is being wasted by this nightmare of a " coaching staff" . These guys were supposed to help lead us to greatness, instead they are being dragged/ pushed(however you want to look at it) to the depths of gridiron nothingness.
I fear that even if we get the best g.m and coaching staff in the history of football it will still take some time (a couple seasons) if not more to be ready for a superbowl. and by that time "the core" of this team will be on the downside of thier primes. And that is if ,and a big IF at that, that they are still on this team. will thier talent still be there!? the truth is that it does take the players quite some time to adjust to the new mantra that has been placed before them. with the exception to the rule( Harbaughs niners). I just hope that these talented athletes get to be able to have something to show for the time they spend in a chiefs uniform before Father time (NFL style) puts the final nail in their professional athletic coffins!!!
