KC Chiefs GM John Dorsey knows we're still in the 'honeymoon period'

The Kansas City Star's Randy Covitz has a nice read for you on this fine Wednesday morning -- an interview with KC Chiefs GM John Dorsey. Head on over to the Star and read the story. A few thoughts from me below...

"We're still in the honeymoon period."

That quote from John Dorsey stands out to me. Because it is true. 810 WHB's Soren Petro talked about this today -- the new coaches are always doing things so much more efficiently than the previous coaches. And then the new coaches are eventually fired, new ones are hired and the process repeats itself. That's what's going on with Andy Reid right now. We're just hoping that bears out over the course of the season in wins.

We are in the honeymoon period. Nothing wrong with being excited or optimistic (I can't commit to seeing Chris on his birthday in late January due to the playoff run, you see.) Let's see where things stand after an 0-4 preseason.

Dorsey is happy with both quarterbacks

I found this interesting on Chase Daniel: "Once you get him in this offense in the preseason, he'll show people why we brought him into this organization."

So that quote, and then this:

We hadn't thought much about Chase Daniel when it comes to the Chris Ault hiring. It's an interesting thought, especially with Chase's quote above. I want to see him play because history says he's going to have to at some point.

By the way, Dorsey told Covitz that Andy Reid hiring Ault was an "ingenious" move by Reid.

Holes to be filled on the roster

Dorsey acknowledges that there are holes on the roster that have yet to be filled. Which ones? He doesn't say. On defense, the Chiefs have some contenders at safety and depth roles along the defensive line but no one that seems to have stood out among those groups. Offensively, the Chiefs have a number of positions up for grabs, including the second receiver, left guard and backup running backs and tight ends. Are those the holes?

Unrelated but, John Dorsey ... not so different from you and I
