Let me first start off by saying that I'm a little disappointed so far in free agency. The only move we have made is for a runningback that is not necessarily a need. However, I really like our team heading into next year. We have a solid team heading into 2012. Our defense is nasty and we have all the pieces to have a really good offense.
We got playmakers across the board minus our quarterback. Now I know that is an essential part of a football team, but I'm getting this feeling that the Chiefs are going to trade back, and keep trading back and pick up Brandon Weeden. I would not be against this move at all. I know the guy is old compared to other players coming out, but if he can give us five great years at the position, I'm sold. He would come in and immediatly compete, and looking at him in college i would say he would win the job early.
My point is, I guess, is that it's very easy to get mad and be upset. Trust me if we roll #7 out there again I do not know what I'm going to do. I'm just saying there are still a couple of options for this team. Flynn is still out there, Tannehill could be available if we trade up, and Weeden will for sure be there for us at 11. None of these options equal up to receiving Manning, but the way I see it is if Manning wants to go to Denver, then it gives me reason to root for the Chiefs to embarrass his decision twice a year.
Get excited when you think about the players on our team. Tamba Hali, Brandon Flowers, Dwayne Bowe, Derrick Johnson, Jamaal Charles, Jon Baldwin, Dexter Mccluster, Moeaki...I'm getting fired up just thinking about it. Lets hold off on the negativity for now. We need to at least wait two straight losses early before we start calling it a season before it even starts.
We can still get Eric Winston, I'm sure that will fire this fan base up a little. Hey, Peyton HIllis is a stud in my eyes. I Can't wait to see him as a change of pace back blowing guys up on the six yard line to walk across the line for six points. I have to believe that this orginization is not so stupid to see that Matt is not the answer, and our team is not young anymore so they have to feel that they need to make something happen soon. I'm not saying our window is closing shortly like the Celtics in basketball, but were for sure not one of the youngest teams in the league anymore. Plus, why tag Bowe for a year? The front office, IM praying, is going to try and make a run this year. Bowe is not dumb, he is looking around the league and seeing all these receivers getting paid outragous $$$. He will hit the market next year for sure, so the time is now for this team.
