My Take (Write Blogs & Share Stories)

  • Okay: Review time. So, okay, I am having thoughts and seeing images and getting into rough times finding a pillow, er. after finding it, finding sleep.

    Recall I discussed the last 9 games of the season where the Chiefs averaged 35+ PPG? Bob Gretz had good focus on this in two articles today.

    First in the second piece, he became more granular in his focus. he also observed the production of the second half of the season. Of course, the defensive scoring also figured in the team average PPG but it is obvious from his table that the team, which worked hard to get on board first of all, with a new Head Coach,…

  • Today, a shift in focus. Building the offense and defense from the angle of how the Chiefs are preparing for the upcoming season. The quotes  from Bob Gretz illustrate the crucial difference between year 1 and 2 and has great meaning. I believe that the overall framework is the result of the setting the stage by GM John Dorsey. Again, refer to his "Blue Print Video" at the Chiefs Site!

    With that, I backed up to take a look at Dorsey and Co(Scouts) review of the draft choices. One is specifically mentioned as having impact in 2014 by Gretz. Others will as well, as we can see with DAT combined on the field with Charles and Davis. Video…

  • How can I get on a limb any farther.

    First: Kush. He is a giant and he is our fastest most foot-dexterous lineman. Huh. I like it. Recall last years camp when he struggled early? By San Diego he had proved himself. This is the KUSH PUSH SEASON!

    Kush

    QB's

    Alex Smith is Cool hand Luke. Trust me on this. With reduce weaponry, look what he did in 2013. I am sold.

    The Chiefs at QB are Deep. Deep. A decision will be made: Bray may be out, but can they keep 4? I answered yes, in this case, but if not.... Daniels has the leg way up over the other two with NFL time and his Chargers game showed that he could run the KC WCO.

    We picked a winner(Dorsey did, & the scouting staff)…

  • About Smith and Houston

    Not long ago, I discussed briefly, the two guys that contracts need to be completed for to keep them in the fold. I indicated that the Chiefs should sign Houston first, Smith second and I don't think the Chiefs will rush and make a big deal for either. In fact, they may wait and sign them after the season, based on performance in the 2014 season. I prefer getting Houston signed first and Smith second and here is the reasoning for Smith from a piece at Draft Diamonds, and perhaps Houston. The money situation in the NFL has gone from ridiculous to sublimely absurd.

    Alex Smith is Not Worth 18 Million a Year, Sorry [and maybe should have been titled with a 'Yet' as the final word-deb]

    Alex Smith wants to be a high paying quarterback, but is he an 18 million dollar QB? There have been rumors saying he turned down a deal worth 17 million annually. Right now Jay Cutler is the highest paid QB, but to me he is overpaid. Alex Smith talked with NFL Network…

  • HARD KNOCKS <beatzbydave

    Nope not this season. HBO's Hard Knocks camera crew/circus will be in tha Dirty South as they will pick apart the Atlanta Falcons and document ex Chiefs players who may most likely get cut or serve on the bench. I'll still watch and thank God that I don't have to see Tony G talk ad nauseum about "this is the year" Matty Ice takes us to the moon and back. I will also be force fed the phrase RISE UP and plan to do so often to grab a cold one of sumthin' but the worst part will be seeing ex Chiefs GM Scott Pioli all over again. That said CHIEFS training camp is almost here and if you're like me you'll be jonesing for every tidbit of roster battle info and who dropped the most passes that day. If you can't get out to St Joseph, MO don't fret we'll do what we can to share experiences from those who must have more vacation days than we do. Lance Twidwell (The Spoken!!) and Ty (X-Factor) Rowton may be posting videos on YouTube like in previous years…

  • NSLU: Finally, Puttin' on the Ritz NFL Style

    No Filler. The dead time draws to a close. We will have something more to look at when the Chiefs Players put on the pads and lightly at first, then with fervor, begin to play the game on the field and to compete for a role on the 53 man roster. As important is showing enough so that logical choices are made for the "Taxi Squad".

    Speaking of the latter, those guys earn 100k per season in that role, to play football. Or more.

    What is the GOAL?

    Okay. There it is. One Front Page from 1970. 23-7 Over Vikings. THIS IS THE GOAL!

    All else falls short. Denver fell short. Frisco. New England, Indianapolis, and in the end, there was one champion. Seattle. No team had a perfect record. I do not foresee any team having a perfect record…

  • Thompson's Take: The Decision

    It may not be as nationally covered as the King's decision on whether to go back home to Cleveland or keep his talents in South Beach, but it is one that the Chiefs Kingdom has certainly had their eyes on for quite a while now. The decision that I am referring to here is the decision of the Kansas City Chiefs to give contract extensions to either Alex Smith, Justin Houston, or both. Obviously our heart wants both, but unfortunately money doesn't care what the heart wants. We simply do not have the cap space to sign both this year unless some veterans decided to re-negotiate for less money but in the greedy world that is the NFL that is not likely to happen. Keep in mind both players still have 1 year left on their current contracts but the last thing you want is the leader of your team in Alex Smith and your best pass rusher in Justin Houston to go into the season unhappy with the Chiefs. I will give my opinion as to the Chiefs best option for THIS year, keeping in mind…

  • Say It Ain't So Ben!!!!

    “Ben Nielsen has a new Job. Congrats. Most generally I come to agree with his Assessments and he is insightful in each article. Even this one yesterday where he outlined the power rankings, placing the Chiefs 19th of 32 teams of the NFL.

    Boo Hoo!

    I cain't agree with this one, though I understand it. But he has the Chiefs too much in the bottom half and they should be in the top half of those rankings.

    I don't think the Chiefs are in the top 10. We must consider this is going based on the loss of players to free agency. I don't think that the…
