We Are Not In A Rebuilding Mode

With regards to the KC Chiefs, the media use the word “rebuilding” quite often. However, lets be honest, we are not in a rebuilding mode. We are absolutely still in a demolition mode. How can you say you are rebuilding when there is so much more to be torn down?

Let me give you an analogy: I recently underwent a remodeling project (true story). I started with one contractor (Herm Edwards; he wasn’t actually the contractor for my project but you get the drift) who did some demolition and some rebuilding but encountered some major problems, and I ultimately had to let him go (end of 2008 season). I hired a new contractor (Haley/Pioli) who indicated that the old contractor had made quite a few mistakes, but the new contractor could change a few things and work with what the earlier contractor had done so that the earlier work wasn’t a total loss (beginning of 2009 season). The new contractor started the new project and realized after some considerable work (1-7), that he could not just change a few things, and actually could not work with what the other contractor did (totally wasted 2009 season). He had to demo everything and start over (upcoming 2010 season). Catch my drift?

Want further evidence? Here it is:

Needs Demolition
LT: Blow this position up! Branden Albert is struggling. Maybe he should be moved to Left Guard next year. The position he played so well in college it got him drafted in the first round. A True LT should be drafted with our top pick.
LG: Blow this position up! Waters skills are eroding. He should be moved to Center and let Albert take his spot.
C: Blow this position up! Move Waters here or get completely new personnel
RG: Blow this position up! Need completely new personnel. Nothing worth salvaging.
RT: Blow this position up! Need completely new personnel.
TE: Blow this position up! Need completely new personnel. Nothing worth salvaging.
WR: Partial Tear Down: Bowe Stays, Long for depth, Wade for depth, let everyone else go, including soon to be 32 year old Chambers.
FB: Blow this position up! Need completely new personnel.
NT: Blow this position up! Need completely new personnel. Nothing worth salvaging
LB: Blow this position up! Need completely new personnel. Yes, all the LBs must go. Even Tamba; who is playing his heart out, but still not getting it done.
S: Blow this position up! Need completely new personnel. Our safety’s suck, Do I need I say more?

Offensive Coordinator: Need one
Defensive Coordinator: Need new one

The only positions worth keeping and building on are: QB (Cassel); DE (Dorsey, Jackson); CB (Flowers, Carr); K (Succop); and P (Colquitt). Our Special Teams Coach can stay.

Any thoughts?
