In Jason Whitlock's Sunday article, he explains why Chiefs fans should prepare for a long season. Whitlock is essentially raising the white flag now, right after the second preseason game.
Whitlock makes some excellent points in his article. He believes that the organization and the city itself is underestimating the loss of Willie Roaf, Tony Richardson and the Saturday ankle injury to Will Shields. I know Chiefs fans may not want to admit this but the loss of those two and the potential for Will Shields injuries are potentially devastating to the offense. Those are three Pro Bowl players, two of which anchor(ed) one of the best offensive lines in football in recent years. What is Whitlock's solution? Field control.
Whitlock may be right. We may need to use a much more conservative offense than what we're used to. But what I disagree with is what I perceive as basically throwing in the offensive towl so early. Its August, not November. Doesn't the Chiefs offense warrant a chance to shine like it has? I think the quality of players we have now is still of the highest caliber. Whitlock ends on an optimistic note (kidding).
I actually feel sorry for Carl Peterson. Seriously.
I agree with a lot of what he says, just not the tone and the "Sky is falling" mentality he always seems to have. Jason, wait until the regular season and we can talk about a rebuilding year.
