Good morning everyone. NJ Chiefs Fan is stuck someplace without WiFi -- the horror!!! -- so I'm taking Arrowheadlines duty this morning. Here's your Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy.
The Chiefs said more than 3,000 season ticket holders listened to the conference call. Together, Goodell and Hunt answered 11 questions from an audience that was mostly friendly given the fact the 2011 season is in peril. The Chiefs said they didn't screen questions.
TimR says: What are the picks you would've made, round by round, assuming they were on the board at the time in that round?
Bob says - Nothing better than hindsight. Give me hindsight and I could actually be an NFL executive. Anyway, here's what I would have done, based on the players available at the time the Chiefs selected. I reserve the right to change my mind many times:
Wolf believed that an NFL team should add a quarterback to its roster every year, and more pointedly a young quarterback. The premise was that a team develops a young quarterback and that man will either become the starter, or he will provide value in the trade market, bringing back the draft pick investment in him with more draft picks.
"It's incredibly important for a team like the Kansas City Chiefs that we have a collective-bargaining agreement that's good for all 32 clubs," Hunt said. "We don't want a system that heads in the direction of (major-league) baseball. We have some concerns that it has the potential to go that way."
Over the last two years, small television graphics have declared offensive tackle a "top-need" each time the Chiefs have been on the clock. Despite the network suggestions, no offensive tackles were selected with any of the Chiefs 16 draft picks.
Maybe the Chiefs view the position differently than most are led to believe?
