For me the preseason games are an opportunity to see Arrowhead in a different light. The pace is slow. The traffic is light. The hurried walk to the stadium is a casual stroll. Your not in a rush because there isn’t anything to miss. Many fans stay an hour and go home. Others arrive just before its over. Many never even go into the stadium they must mill about on the parking lot, having found that strolling around a warm August night is more entertaining that watching the game.
In the starting lineup, the secondary is the strength of the Chiefs defense. Berry, Lewis, Flowers and Carr have the potential to be as effective as the awesome secondary of Cherry, Burruss, Lewis and Ross. That unit was the best secondary unit the Chiefs have ever fielded. Will the current group be as good? I don’t know, but they could. Depth is a bit of an issue, but the starting lineup is good.
An external juxtaposition of the internal dichotomy within Ladner, Victor’s musings over redemption for an adversary turned consort, and the first half of a quid pro quo dialogue between Big Matt and Lyle after this rather verbose and sesquipedalian transitional sentence…

Good vs Evil
You can load up with all the free agents you want but, it won’t necessarily win you a championship. In the meantime, what the Chiefs are building is a team that is gratifying on many levels. One that is built on definite principles. Principles that will last a long time.
Being cheap is just that, being cheap. You can use high class words for that, words like “economical” or “inexpensive.” It still means cheap.
To win a championship everyone must make sacrifices.
The only sacrifices Mr. Hunt has been asking anyone to make here… is the fans.
…that got me thinking about those times in recent Chiefs history when we’ve had the chance to see an old rival reborn in red and gold—and even wash away his sins with a game-changing or dominating performance against his old team.
We made the playoffs last year but were outclassed by a team with a higher talent level. We were 10-6, but our schedule this year will be much harder. One of the best free agents on the board fits our biggest need. If there is a time to spend, it is most definitely now. Instead, we signed a 35-year-old locker-room leader. Nothing has changed. And nothing will change, until the new salary cap rules mandate that it does. The Chiefs will be below the floor as long as they’re allowed to be.
Exciting week folks, only a week away from preseason football, have a great weekend.
