The Kansas City Chiefs are a team on the rise.
True or false?
I think most, even fans of rival teams, would have to admit the answer to that question is true. The Chiefs are loaded with young talent at nearly every position and while they may not be deep, they have certainly not yet reached their full potential.
But what about some of the other common statements, ideas, theories and wild speculation that runs rampant across the Chiefs blogosphere?
I’ve spoken a bit about “group think” around here before. The idea of “group think” is that a group of people, in an effort to avoid conflict, will often come to a group “consensus” without the benefit of alternative ideas or views. Group think can be dangerous because we can all brainwash each other into believing something that isn’t true simply because everyone else seems to agree on the subject.
We try to fight against group think here on AA, which is why we’ve assembled a team of writers who often have varying opinions on the same subject. This way, we are able to provide some varying opinions and not just the same old “truths” you might get elsewhere. Sure, we’re guilty of our own misconceptions and group thinks around here but we struggle daily to avoid them.
Today I got to thinking about the common ideas I often see across the Chiefs blogosphere and I thought it would be fun to poll our readers to see where Chiefs Nation really stands on these issues. Whether or not the results are a group think or the actual truth, it will be interesting to see the answers.
Let’s get after it:
Thomas Jones will be more valuable as a compliment to Jamaal Charles in 2011 than a younger back?
Mike Vrabel, because of his talent and leadership skills, should be brought back to KC for another season, even if that means him starting.
Charlie Weis was more responsible for KC’s offensive improvement in 2010 than Todd Haley.
Clark Hunt is cheap and because of this, the Chiefs will always be near the bottom of the league in payroll.
Glenn Dorsey is worth his contract.
Tyson Jackson will still live up to his draft stock.
Shaun Smith never grabbed anybody’s junk.
Dexter McCluster was a big reach in the second round of the draft.
Eddie Drummond really sucked.
Matt Cassel will lead the team to a Super Bowl (game, not necessarily a victory) before another man is named the official starting QB of the Chiefs.
The Chiefs will manage to re-sign Tamba Hali, Brandon Carr, Brandon Flowers and Dwayne Bowe.
The 2011 Kansas City Chiefs will win the AFC West.
AA columnist Victor Wishna should name his newborn daughter “Haley Delaney.”
Haley’s gambling ways are good for offensive success.
Ricky Stanzi will be the starting Chiefs’ starting QB by the end of the 2012 season.
That is all I’ve got Addicts. What about you? Do you have any true or false questions for Chiefs Nation?
