I was new in April 2009, SB Nation was soon to be new too. AP was older, Chris and Joel had already found a niche in the WWW for Chiefs fans. I was searching for news on the Chiefs search for a new General Manager and following a CBS link found AP for the 1st time.

New

A Royals fan for life, It has for many years, seemed to be a search for the new. Even diehards are searching for the new player that makes the current versions relevant.

New is Better? Is new always better?

Direction is important. Arrows up are good.

Throwing out the baby with the Bath water is a bad thing.

Tamba Hali, Derrick Johnson, Branden Albert, Brandon Flowers, Jamaal Charles, Dwayne Bowe, and Dustin Colquitt.

Chiefs always, born and mentored

Heart and Soul

Terrance Copper, Ryan Lilja, and Matt Cassel are the veteran Cadre along with our very own bred Chiefs.

A fifth of our team is battle tested, hardened, and ready to roll. The Chiefs are all 30 years old and younger.

25 players on our current nearly ninty man roster has more than 5 years of NFL experience, SO 65 or so have less.

Scott Pioli has rebuilt the entire roster. Cept

Tamba Hali, Derrick Johnson, Branden Albert, Brandon Flowers, Jamaal Charles, Dwayne Bowe, and Dustin Colquitt.

The Core

The Old Guard

The Vets

Napoleon Bonaparte led his French Old Guard, Young Guard, Calvery, and Artillery to domination of Europe with some Mercenaries hired on.

  • Scott Pioli will depend on his Old Guard and Merc's to lead the Chiefs to the AFC West Championship, The AFC Championship (securing Lamar Hunt's trophy), and the Super Bowl.
  • Romeo Crennel has fought and won on that field of play before. Never as the Commander.
  • Scott Pioli has fought and won on that field of play before. Never as the General (manager) in charge.
  • Kevin Boss has a Championship ring, Ryan Lilja, and Matt Cassel do too.

Where would Pioli be without

Tamba Hali, Derrick Johnson, Branden Albert, Brandon Flowers, Jamaal Charles, Dwayne Bowe, and Dustin Colquitt.

Saint Helena?

Allons-y Chiefs!

It takes equal parts New and Old, Veteran and Draftee, not quite realized ambition with youthful ambition.
