Winning and Big Time Free Agents

This is a very big year for the team. Winning is always the goal for every team, but sometimes the pressure to win is more important for a team when Free Agents, Big Time Free Agents, are included in the matrix. For years we had hopes of bringing in some talented guys who were available, but the team was so bad that they didn't want to come here. Some of it may have to do with our old GM as we saw good players who left point out how they couldn't play for a guy who treated them so poorly in negotiations.

Fast forward to this off season, a season in which we lost more games than we won, but still were able to sign so very talented and coveted players. Hot Damn and way to go Scotty! The teams fortunes are on the brink of turning around. The big elephant in this scenario is we have 3 big time Free Agents of our own here in KC who we may have trouble keeping due to some difficult circumstances. You all know the names of Bowe, Dorsey and Albert.

Bowe may go, not just for the money, but a bigger market and a QB with a better arm that would help his stat's. Dorsey may go as he is reportedly or rumoured to want to play in a 4-3 scheme. Albert being a LT, which gets the tall dollars on the O-line, may test the market like Brandon Carr and leave for better money. It's a helluva conundrum to have such good player's like these on the verge of having their checks signed by another owner than Clark Hunt.

Winning takes a step in the matrix of keeping these guys here. If they see the chance of getting a championship and a ring here they would have better motivation to stay, even if it means less money than what the market will pay or team dynamic that Pioli is trying to put together can afford. Being part of something special is what drives some of these guys, more than the dollars. Winning is good for all of us, most importantly for the players. Go Chief's!!
