Real Chief Concerns: Is It Just Me, Or...


 

 

If you’re a Chiefs fan… you have concerns. These days most of us are concerning ourselves with who the Chiefs will be taking in the upcoming draft. But, if you’re at all like me (I know what you’re thinking… omg NO), you have other concerns as well.

Is it just me, or…

does anyone else wonder if Chiefs ex-GM Scott Pioli actually ever picked up that piece of trash in the stairwell… you know, the one he scolded his staff about to teach them a lesson? Or, did he assign someone to go pick it up instead? Or maybe hire a trash picker-upper-er? I’m hoping that it’s still there, in the exact same spot and that someday the Hunts will be giving tours, so fans can view the infamous… “piece of trash.” No… I’m not talking about Pioli. When I said he will be bust at Arrowhead, I didn’t mean they’ll make him a statue.

Is it just me, or…

is anyone else wondering if the Chiefs have enough coaches yet? After all, someone is going to have to teach the the players the new rules about open-field tackling and not leading with their helmets. Perhaps Leon Sandcastle will be available to do that… after the reality sets in… that no one is actually going to draft the 45 year old wanna-be-younger Deion Sanders look-alike. It could work too… since the real Deion Sanders never touched anyone in the open field.

Is it just me, or…

has anyone wondered in the past two years if the Chiefs made a mistake by rushing their card to the commissioner so they could pick WR Jon Baldwin with pick 26… instead of 27.

The Chiefs paid $90,300 more for the opportunity to move up one spot and assure themselves of drafting WR Jon Baldwin because the Baltimore Ravens were late turning their pick-card into the league commissioner. The Ravens then selected the player they wanted, CB Jimmy Smith, who was paid commensurate with the 27th pick on the new CBA rookie salary scale. Notice (above) the line of regression of the pay scale with the next player selected in the 2011 draft, Mark Ingram. You may also notice the date of signing is in a progression.

And now, for the rest of the story….

Is it just me, or…

is anyone else now wondering… if the Chiefs could do the same thing the Ravens did two years ago… by refusing to turn their card in for the first and/or second picks in the draft. If the Chiefs can’t find a trading partner… why not drop down two slots lower in the draft and pay less for the player they are likely wanting most (or equally) while still selecting near the top of the draft?  By drafting third this year, instead of first, the Chiefs could save 1.835 million…. and still get their man. I’m pretty sure they’d still be able to get one of the two best left tackles, Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher, and wouldn’t it be great to pick right before the Raiders… perhaps denying them the very player they want most.

Is it just me, or…

was anyone else weirded out by Andy Reid’s Hawaiian “shirt” or has anyone been wondering… or not… why Andy Reid was the only NFL coach fashioning a flower-dy-wow-er-dy tropical themed muumuu a couple of weeks ago at the owner’s meetings in… Phoenix, Arizona? It’s one thing to wear a fashion from two decades ago but, quite another to wear a shirt when it was MADE two decades ago.

Is it just me, or…

is anyone else wondering if 6-6 and 294 lb. British born, Nigerian, rugby player slash discuss champion Lawrence OKOYE… who is interested in playing DE in the NFL… can possibly play… running back? How about “The Nigerian Nightmare Two-Point-OMG” for a nickname?


Is it just me, or...

is anyone else enjoying the losing hand of poker that the Oakland Raiders are playing this off season? Palmer on the outs? Flynn, in like flint? Oooo, I’m scared… and happy. I call it scraaa-happy. There’s lots to loathe (or love, if you’re a Chiefs fan… and if you’re reading this post, there’s a good chance you are) about the Raider’s off season. However, they seem to be aligning themselves to become first in the draft for either, Johnny Manziel or Jadeveon Clowney in 2014. Never felt sorrier for a QB or a LB.

Oh my… I’m not nearly being honest there you know. Shame on me.


Is it just me, or...

is anyone else as frequently annoyed at the lack of depth and understanding that the national media displays on a regular basis about the Chiefs?  I usually revere Sports Illustrated writer Peter King but, his comment about Dwayne Bowe seems uninformed to say the least,

“Bowe… could be the deep threat Reid loved in DeSean Jackson in Philadelphia.”

Does any Chiefs fan have the image of Dwayne Bowe going long or posing as a long threat? Bowe’s TDs come when he makes his move… after the catch. Besides, there hasn’t been a QB in Kansas City who could even throw a bomb so, how could he be considered a long threat? King may be thinking Alex Smith is going to be that QB who will go bombs-away with him but, that’s also not at all the reputation A.S. has. Smith is known for his short quick passes, crossing routes or dumps out of the backfield. Tell me if I’m wrong.

Is it just me, or…

is anybody else anticipating a first round trading binge on draft day? Well, if that’s you — you’d be right to think that way.

In the past five years there have been, on average, 37.1% of the teams in the first round of the NFL draft, trading places to get the player they covet most.

 Is it just me, or…

is the memory of any Derrick Thomas sack, one of the

sweetest moments in sports history, in any sport, in

any decade, period?

Here’s my top ten list of favorite football moments:

10. Monday Night Football, October 17th, 1994. Joe Montana to Willie Davis, with 8 seconds left, who turns and tiptoes across the goal line in Denver, out dueling John Elway, 31-28.

9.  Sunday, December 18, 2011 when the Chiefs stopped the Green Bay Packers winning streak. The Chiefs thrills have been few and far between in recent years but that was definitely one of them.

8. Live: Sunday, October 24th, 1973 at the Los Angeles Coliseum and QB John Hadl threw a long TD pass to Harold Jackson to beat the Green Bay Packers 24-7 and remain unbeaten at 6-0.

7. Joe Namath promising a Super Bowl victory and then following through.

6. Joe Montana to Dwight Clark in the back of the end zone knocking the Cowboys out of the playoffs and establishing the 49ers as a team of the future. It was January 10, 1982 and I was watching on TV.

5. The catch known as the Immaculate Reception: because when it happened it represented the Steelers coming of age but, more importantly, whipping the Raiders. Now, the Steelers are as much of a villain as the Raiders. Well, maybe not quite as much.

4. Priest Holmes running patiently behind his hof quality line. In 2002, when Holmes rushed for 1615 yards he averaged 5.2 yards per carry. He often appeared to be gliding into the end zone, unharried, unhurried and untouched.

3. The St. Louis Rams winning the Super Bowl vs. the Tennessee Titans in the last second with one yard to spare. Congratulations to one of my all-time favorite coaches: Dick Vermeil.

2. The 1970 Super Bowl had the biggest catch of all. The Otis Taylor 46 yard catch and score which was accomplished only after breaking a tackle at mid-field. Taylor tiptoeing and prancing down the sideline for a score was pure artistry. The 65-Toss-Power-Trap slogan has overshadowed some outstanding performances in that game by the defense. Minnesota’s two leading rushers had a total of 24 yards that day and Gene Washington, the Vikings best receiver had a total of 9 yards for the game. Afterwards, Len Dawson said, “It was obvious that their offense had never seen a defense like ours.” Nor since.

1. A blur and a heap. Derrick Thomas created this on every play. When he made contact with QBs and running backs, as he so often did, the result was a blur and a heap. My most favorite moments involved Derrick and Denver QB John Elway. I recall saying to myself, repeatedly, Mr. Elway meet Mr. Thomas. Ahhh, those were the days. Hey, if you need a little time of reflection….

Is it just me, or…

did I just write a whole post

without mentioning Geno Smith?

  Oh no! I just did. I’ll never forgive myself.

Is it just me, or…

doesn’t it seem like the draft

is taking a lot looonger to get here this year?

We could be in the middle of a temporal time shift. Really.

Is it just me, or…

 do Arrowhead Addicts have more to say these days than ever before?

    Dear God this article was hard to read..please don’t write like this ever again. Also, you just wrote an article about literally nothing

      You mean you never read the resume of Mr Morse where he raves about the time he spent in the Larry David/Jerry Seinfeld School of Journalism?

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course but I found the article pretty lighthearted and funny. It was a nice break from all the draft talk and analysis.

    • ladner morse

      NOTHING? Did you read the part about the “temporal-time shift?”

      • KCMikeG

        Yeah! Go check out my long winded response to Ladner’s nothingness. Nothing to see here folks. Move along….

      Too bad dude… Cuz the 5th/8th … was really the important part.

        Lol

      Trust me you will waste the time it takes to read the other 7/8 on far less worthwhile endeavors.

  • berttheclock

    Saving $90 grand by not rushing to the podium? How about saving $4,162,768 by passing until the 58 slot and taking Torrey Smith, instead. Torrey Smith, who happens to be both fast and has great hands.
    But, I appreciate this article as there is some memory lane in it. Harold Jackson catching the KU and Lawrence, KS product Hadl’s end over end pass. Harold Jackson,of whom the Rams had taken in the ’68 draft, then, traded to the Eagles in ’69 for John Zook and Izzy Lang. Lang ended up only running for one yard in ’69, thus, becoming known in LA as Izzy “One Yard” Lang. He appeared to run faster backwards across a darkened Central Park in “Where’s Papa”. Jackson was traded back to the Rams for the ’73 season, had a long career in the NFL and is, now, the receivers coach for Baylor.

    • ladner morse

      Wow. I truly enjoy the historical aspects of players in the league. That experienced for me… Being in the LA Coliseum … helped build my appreciation for the game and how it has had such a great impact on our current culture as well as major population centers across or country. Thanks for sharing for sure!

          two shows that can never be dissed: Family Guy–the first ever tv show that was a such a fan favorite that it forced the network to re-air it and allow them to have even more shots taken at their expense because of it–and of course Archer, which if you haven’t given it a shot best chauvanistic, sketch comedy on the planet which include family guy lol.

  • Michael Shaw

    Is it just me or does Eric Davis of NFL AM, NOT have a CLUE about the roster we have. He was saying yesterday morning that QB was NOT the main problem for our team last year………………………..HUH? Most of the time we were in the games until the end of the 1st QTR or midway through the 2nd QTR, but the defense would start to get tired because they were on the field 25 minutes of the entire first half because our QB’s couldn’t throw the ball ANYWHERE on the field. I wanted to jump into the TV and strangle the idiot for arguing with Akbar that our team was one player shy of winning at LEAST 8 games last year. Oh wait, that is right some people on this site believe our line was to blame for the QB holding the ball for 7-10 seconds every play of every game.

    • ladner morse

      I like your example better than mine. Peter King is usually very sharp.

      Good post!

      • berttheclock

        Peter King had the Chiefs winning the division after the off season moves by Pioli, last year. Brooks and Bill Williamson had the same, but, I must admit, I fell into that trap as well. Only Pete Prisco wouldn’t buy in as he felt QBing is 70 per cent of the game and he didn’t buy the MC/BQ concept.

        • ladner morse

          They were a lot less “concept” and a whole lot more… Wishful thinking.

    • berttheclock

      Both MC and BQ would have loved to have been able to count seven to ten “Alligators or Mississippis” a drop back. Often, it never went beyond three. But, the offense did account for very short rests for the defense. Either QB fumbles or quick INTs led to scores or forcing the unrested defense back out there trying to defend the Red Zone. However, Bowe being double covered, an unbalanced line due to injuries, Baldwin not being able to get open, TEs having to stay in to block, slot receivers not having time for run patterns past the line of scrimmage, eight in the box and the offense was a mess. I listened to Davis and he was saying just putting Alex Smith in is not going to solve other problems. When, you lose 14 games, it is not all about the QB. R&D know this and they have been adding players and will continue to add players. There is still FAcy, the draft and the Chiefs have first dibs on the waiver wire for cuts by others.

      • elly violette

        What I thought before the off-season began… and what has not truly been taken care of… is the biggest reason I thought the Chiefs were a losing team in 2012… and that is… the offensive line. Can someone please explain to me why the offensive line is being placed “last in line” to be fixed this off-season?

    • jimfromkcj

      The offensive line being unable to allow running backs to make short 3rd down yardage was a big reason why the offence had so many 3 and outs. So there was several reasons why we were so poor last year.

      • elly violette

        Yes, I agree. It was not Matt Cassel alone that made the Chiefs bad last year. There were many bad plays by Chiefs players. I think Matt Cassel needed to be replaced but, what makes me most happy this off-seson is the number of players being brought in… and the new one’s sound like they will be able to help right away.

      • KCMikeG

        Agreed. IMO it was the injuries and position switching more than a talent issue.

    • Calchiefsfan

      There was a lot that went wrong last year but I have to give the main reason to abysmal coaching. Charlie Weiss had both Cassel and Bowe going to the Pro Bowl with very productive seasons. We won the AFC West! In my opinion Daboll had more to work with than Weiss. As a matter of fact there is more talent on the Chiefs now than there was in 2010. I’m hoping Andy Reid makes a big difference. My main concern is Sutton and our defense. Reid has a history of getting the most out of QB’s and the offense. Sutton doesn’t have that kind of reputation. I’m concerned.

    • Jim Harper

      The truth is that the entire crew of NFL AM are clueless and extremely hard to watch. Nicole Zaloumis is there for eye candy only (a practice I deplore). Brian Webber gives me the creeps. Something about that horrible underbite. The only one that I think ever has anything constructive to say is Steve Wyche.

      • elly violette

        The NFL AM group repeats so much information… that’s what I don’t like. And yes, they are thoughtless about the Chiefs but, when you’re the only NFL show in town… at that time of day… they can corner the market and do as they choose.

  • Scott Mahurin

    It’s not just you. I too, have noticed the news has slowed down. It’s hard to find something to write about when the Chiefs haven’t signed a new player this week. Just a few moves left before the loooong wait for preseason to start. I have to say…at least this year has been interesting. I am flummoxed by some of the Chiefs moves this year and will have to wait to see how it all pans out. The Royals may actually be worth watching this year.

    • ladner morse

      On one hand, they say time flies when you’re having fun… so you might think that the off season would be going by faster because of all the moves the Chiefs have been making. However, because the Chiefs have the number one pick… and because so many of us can’t get a handle on who might be taken at number one… the time appears to be going be much more slowly.

  • micah stephenson

    What did any of this haft to do with GENO SMITH?

    • berttheclock

      Because it is not about Projects. Projects should never be taken at Number One.

    • elly violette

      He’s just making a joke… his whole piece is a joke this week. Well, most of it.

      • micah stephenson

        I know. But it wudnt b rite if i didnt mention his name

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100005102554690 Jason Taylor

      Geno Smith sucks.

      I’m gonna say it every time you mention him.

      He doesn’t watch tape. He doesn’t study the game. He excelled in an offense specifically created for him, which the Chiefs will not do so he would be a failure. He played lousy games against major talent and “good”… Not great… Games against mediocre talent.

      How many games they lose his senior year? Anyone… A bunch.

      He is Vince Young…. Jamarcus Russel…. Ryan Leaf… Marcus Vick…

      One hell of a college player… A hell of a long way from an NFL player.

      • KCMikeG

        I believe he is joking. Every NFL analyst but one says he is a football geek, Can’t believe what Nawrocki says as he was totally wrong on Cam Newton too. He’s just running his mouth to get the publicity for himself and look it worked. Sick of the media period. See the link below for what just about everyone else thinks.

        http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/geno-smith-laughs-off-highly-personal-scouting-report-140307062–nfl.html

        • berttheclock

          Actually, Nawrocki was proved correct about the leadership ability of Newton. He did not criticize him for his athletic skills, but, addressed the same issue which came up last year by many following the Panthers. There was much play about his lack of leadership when Carolina was trailing in the 4th quarters of play. His dour looks and demeanor both in huddles and on the sideline became major issues. However, where Nawrocki may be wrong about GS is in his viewing films. His former QB coach, Jake Spaviti strongly disagrees with him. He trained Weedon at Oklahoma State and, is now, the QB coach for Manziel at A&M.

  • freshmeat62

    In the list of top 10 football moments, I’ve got one. I don’t remember the year, but Marcus Allan scored a TD against the Raiders, and the TV camera was able to show Al Davis, sitting in his almost blacked out suite, slouched down in his chair, with Jim Otto and some other of his lackeys around him, and Al scowling. Loved it!

    • ladner morse

      Oh yea…. I remember that too. Absolutely loved it! Incredible moment.

      Thanks for the memory!

  • Trevor Gooding

    It gets even more people jacked for the draft and for the upcoming season, with things slowing down and all.

    • elly violette

      Yes, when time starts slowing like this… it really does make everytihng more heightened….. especially my interest in the darft. Right. Right. Right.

  • ArrowFan

    If no one trades with us we pick Geno then trade him. However I do like the idea of sitting and waiting for a few other teams to bite the bullet before we pick out guy.

    • elly violette

      What do you think of the idea of sitting on our pick… until the Chiefs are in the right spot to take the player they want most? I haven’t heard of that idea before. Its sounded a little off at first. But, the more I think of it, the more it sounds like it might work to save the Chiefs some cap money in the long run. I wonder what the rules are about passing on your pick like Morse is suggesting?

      • ladner morse

        Honestly, I never gave it a thought until the Chiefs and teh Ravens swapped picks two years ago. Not that teams are looking to move down in any draft without getting something in return. However, since the Chiefs are sitting at the top of this draft… moving down even one spot and give them a huge break in cap space by not having to pay out as much to the number one pick. Move down even more and the benefits become even bigger.

        A smart move? Probably not but, I hope it is being given consideration because there are benefits and a return value to taking this kind of action.

  • KCPauly

    Nice break from all the BS that’s been talked to death about I enjoyed it Laddie

    • ladner morse

      Thanks. Appreciate it.

  • Kurt Rauch

    Count me among those who find articles such as these often more enjoyable than the number crunching pieces. With sports performances, like individual stocks in the stock market, past history is hardly a reliable indicator of future results! As such, give me some creativity!! Well done, Ladner!

    • elly violette

      Yes, I prefer the articles that are more on the light side. I’m not really understanding the fans who don’t get this kind of humor. I think it’s meant to be a farce or, that’s the way I take it. Bravo Morse.

  • Chris Foosman

    I was waiting for you to mention what I was really wondering: Will the Chief’s pick raise the bar over the players from last year and kiss Goodell on the lips? Next year I think they’ll go open mouth.

    Good job on the mention of Geno. Have you guys thought about changing your name to “Geno Junkie”?

  • elly violette

    My oh my oh my…. why isn’t any talking abobut Lawrence Okoye? Maybe the Chiefs should get him just for the female population alone. If you want to fill Arrowhead Mr. Hunt…. draft Lawrence Okoye!!!!

    • ladner morse

      Okoye isn’t ranked so far… so he should be able to be picked up after the draft as an undrafted free agent.

      • elly violette

        Do you know if Lawrence Okoye is related to Christian Okoye at all?

        • ladner morse

          A source I read said it is still unsure if they are related and also doesn’t know if he’s related to Amobi Okoye either.

  • steve james

    Thanks for the DT video, never gets old watching him and made my day!

    • ladner morse

      You bet… his early and untimely death left me with a sense of wondering about what else he could become — not only on the football field before his career ended — but afterwards too. He was a bright light… on and off the field. Plus, he always had that Magic Johnson kind of smile and positive quality. He’ll always be missed.

  • Calchiefsfan

    Great article Laddy, perfect timing. I would have the Otis Taylor catch as #1 and the Montana to Davis play on Monday night as #2 in my all time favorites.
    What a joy to watch the Derrick Thomas highlight reel. I remember so many times knowing that Thomas was going to get the sack after his first step when it was obvious that he had already beaten his blocker. The tomahawk chop was his trademark. He’d start to get close to the QB and you’d see his right hand go up and it was fumble time! Truely awesome. Maybe Justin Houston should watch that film once a day until the season starts.

    • elly violette

      Whoa… that was a great video. I’m going to watch that again! Derrick Thomas was incredible.

    • elly violette

      How about if ALL the Chiefs linebackers watch it! It couldn’t hurt Hali either!

  • elly violette

    Deion Sanders teaching open field tackling? lol

  • KCMikeG

    Ladner you are the best. Lots of great writes on AA but you bring such unique perspectives that I thoroughly enjoy all your posts.
    That being said I’m going with “it is just you” on the Pioli candy bar wrapper. Here’s why. Having worked in multiple national sales positions I have seen pretty much every motivational/ behavior alteration/brain washing training there is out there. It wasn’t about the candy wrapper. The candy wrapper was symbolic of the lethargy being displayed by the entire organization to correct the spiral into the depths of hell our beloved Chiefs had taken.
    No “it’s not just you” on the coaching. The addition of Chilly was surprising yet pleasant. Funny on on Dion and his open field skills! My son & I are starting to worry/wonder about us drafting Leon! At least we are getting some positive national press coverage. After the last two years we really need it.
    “It’s just you” on Baldwin. Houston saves that deal no matter what and reports of Baldwin’s demise are premature.
    “It’s not just you” on your smashing idea on passing down and making the Jags pay more for their pick and still hopefully take the faiders pick away from them.
    “It’s NOT just you” on the Nigerian Nightmare 2.0! Is he related to Christian? That would be an incredible solution to our need for a smash mouth, goal line, power back and create a new fan favorite. When can I buy his jersey? And sign me up for that Ace Sanders guy’s #1 jersey too.
    “It’s not just you” when it comes to the savoring of the faiders weekly stumbling, bumbling personnel decisions this offseason. Flynn – Bahahahaha! My brother-in-law is a diehard faider fan (don’t worry I converted his sister) and he is already talking about their 1st pick in the 2014 draft. This guy usually talks some pretty serious smack -even with Palmer at the helm. Now he has raised the white flag and I am basking in the glow.
    “It’s not just you” on the media. From the local “media’s” sickening effort to poor gasoline on the flames of fan division last year to the “experts” flailing wildly about at their mock boards, I am getting to the point where I don’t want to hear what any of them have to say anymore. I have respected Mayocks as one of the top in his field but his yo-yo on Geno makes him look like a clown. He drags Fisher into the top ten and forgets about Quessenberry and Schwenke, who he slobbered all over at the Senior Bowl. IMO they could both be just as good at a much greater value.
    “It’s not just you” on the potential for a trading frenzy. I believe that R&D will get a deal done and as long as we can get one of their Final Four and recover the 2nd we spent on AS and save a couple of million $$ then I am good with that.
    “It’s definitely NOT just you” on every single DT replay. He changed so many games. He made every defensive snap a venture into pandemonium. The sound of the Sea of Red at Arrowhead on 3rd down when he lined up will vibrate inside me forever.
    Great work Ladner and thanks again. GO CHIEFS!!

    • ladner morse

      Thanks Michael and… that was an amazing post!

    • elly violette

      Is it just me or… was that an awesome post!!!!! Wow Michael… incredible. I agree mostly… but I have to say… I have tought about the Pioli-trash story a couple of ties since then…. nice to get the funny take that Ladner offers.

      • KCMikeG

        Awe shucks..Thanks.

  • elly violette

    I remember Preist Holmes scoring a ton of TDs one year. That’s a favorite memory for me. The sad part is……. there has not been very much to cheer about in the past ten seasons. This is one of the reasons I’m excited about all the changes Andy Reid and John Dorsey have been making. The decisions seem like good one’s to me.

    • ladner morse

      I wasn’t thrilled about the Alex Smith move at first but, it’s growing on me.

      Basically, my problem with that move is that I still believe in Geno Smith… even after the bad PR he’s gotten in the past few days.

      • elly violette

        I have been up and down on Geno. I’m still up but, it appears that the Chiefs have other more pressing needs now than drafting a QB who will have to be developed and take years before we see anything out of him on the field.

        • ladner morse
