Could the Chiefs pay Jamaal and Houston?

+

See, Charles has a cap number of $5.2 million this year, which means that if the Chiefs restructured his contract by giving him a healthy signing bonus up front and a small first-year base salary — which is standard practice — they could conceivably keep him at the same $5.2 million cap number this year, which would not cut into the $9.4 million in cap space they currently have (and will need) for a Houston deal.

Q&A: Can the Chiefs afford to pay Jamaal Charles and Justin Houston this year? | The Kansas City Star

Why now for Jamaal?

He’ll also be 29 when his current deal expires and that’s not a great age for a running back to sell himself on the open market.

"I'm moving around, doing lot of motion (in the Chiefs offense), so I want to be as fit and in as good a shape as possible," Bowe said. "I feel lighter, and it's definitely because of what I'm eating and how I'm treating my body. That's the main reason why I'm feeling so explosive."

"When the entire unit was healthy last year, watching offensive lines go up against the Chiefs’ front was like watching them go through a buzz saw. Justin Houston and Tamba Hali are absolute demons coming off the edges. They both possess rare speed and power that prohibits the offense from focusing on either one.

The Chiefs also spent a first round selection on Auburn speed rusher, Dee Ford. While I think Ford was a reach, he fits what they want to do on the edges and will be very good in a rotation."

Chiefs brand equity

+

We found that the Redskins have indeed experienced decreasing brand equity over the past decade. Interestingly, the two N.F.L. teams with the most negative brand equity trends from 2002 to 2012 were the Redskins and the Kansas City Chiefs (another American Indian team name). The other teams with the most negative trends were the Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams and Cleveland Browns, all of which had average winning percentages over this period that were well below 40 percent. Though the Redskins and Chiefs also had below-average winning percentages, they lost even more brand equity than did those teams that experienced such pronounced on-field failure over the past decade.

‘Redskins’ Is Bad Business - NYTimes.com I bet if they used 2013, it is trending back up. Winning tends to matter the most and from 2002-12 the Chiefs had the worst 3-year stretch in their franchise history as well as (separately) the single worst season.

Players who need to step up

6

The Chiefs are rolling with one of the youngest offensive lines in the league this year. It will be incredibly important for Hudson to improve and step up as a leader on this line. He’s not exactly a liability, but he tends to get over powered by guys in one-on-one situations, #pause.

Preview and Prediction: 2014 Kansas City Chiefs | Football Savages

Tony Moeaki could start at TE for Bills

4

Tony Moeaki got a ton of time with the first-team over the three-day minicamp and was relatively impressive. Scott Chandler was the leading receiver on the Bills last year and was excused from the minicamp to tend to a family matter, but will see some stiff competition from Moeaki during training camp. Don’t be shocked to see some two tight-end sets featuring both players, because Chandler has proved to be a consistent target in his own right. Moeaki created a bit of a rapport with EJ Manuel over the last few days and would likely need a big training camp to unseat Chandler.

Craziness from the last regime

Two years ago, in the awful dysfunction of that 2012 season, some of Houston’s teammates quietly accused the now-dismissed front office of limiting his pass-rushing opportunities to artificially suppress his next contract. Houston said nothing.

Will this have any influence on AS11's contract?

If we lose out on Alex Smith ( I have only heard rumors of him leaving, not sure if it is true) do you think we should pick up Tim Tebow? Should we pick up Tim Tebow even if we have Alex Smith? What are your thoughts?
