If I told you a team had lost their starting quarterback, their two top receivers and one of the top running backs in franchise history, most of you would say that team would struggle offensively.
If I told you a team lost its top tackler, its two safeties and three of its top defensive lineman from the previous year, most of you would say that team would struggle defensively.
THAT TEAM, MY FRIENDS, IS OUR CHIEFS.
Whether you like it or not, we are one step removed from an expansion team. You know that when our top playmaker the last three weeks is Andy Studebaker — a Division 3 player!!!
It is impossible to objectively evaluate Todd Haley and Matt Cassel. When Dwayne Bowe was suspended we were left with one offensive playmaker — Jamaal Charles. Cassel and Haley are attempting to make something from nothing. As a result crazy chances are being taken on 4th down such as the polecat. It was a DESPERATION attempt to score and alter the course of the game.
Haley’s and Cassel’s future will depend on the ability of one Scot Pioli to draft, sign and develop playmakers.
1. HIRE AN OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR IN THE OFFSEASON YOU TRUST
2. Find a quality, dependable center
3. Rebuild the right side of the O-Line
4. Find another RB and regulate Charles to change-of-pace duty
