Morning everyone. We apologize for some of the issues we had on the site last night. Out new server, which we have been on for about a year now, is generally fantastic. This is the first major blip we’ve had in a long time. Anyway, we are back and ready to go this morning so thanks for hanging in there with us.
As an example, he cited how nobody thought his old boss Scott Pioli would draft a safety with the fifth overall pick last year. The draft experts screamed, “That’s too high for that position.” Pioli’s move went noted by Dimitroff, who also added, “We knew the compensation would be significant, but when you are talking about a player like this, I am not concerned about a fourth-round pick!”
“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.”
The Chiefs averaged 22.9 points per game and were ranked 1st in rushing, but 30th in passing. If their passing game ever comes to life under Matt Cassel, this team could go far. Jamaal Charles was 2nd in the league in rushing yards (1,467 yards), yet had less 15 less carries than Thomas Jones on the season. Jones finished with 896 yards on 245 carries. Matt Cassel had over 3,000 yards passing with 27 touchdowns and just 7 interceptions, but his pass completion percentage was 58.2%. He had good protection up front as he was sacked 26 times. Dwayne Bowe was the team’s leading receiver with 72 catches for 1,162 yards and 15 touchdowns.
The YouTube video description says: “My parrot Ajax cheering for the Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City’s own Kevin Harlan can be heard in the background doing the play by play. Now when he hears Kevin’s voice calling any game he starts the cheer.” This is pretty awesome.
