Chiefs Fans Courting Desmond Bishop


Free agent ILB Desmond Bishop hasn’t picked a new team just yet but Kansas City Chiefs fans are letting the former Green Bay Packer feel the love.

We may have had a little something to do with that.

That led to this:

 

Straight forward approach. I like it.

Good point. Houston, Hali, Bishop and DJ? The 2013 AFC Pro Bowl linebackers could all be Chiefs.

 

He may not want to go that route…

Clearly the Chiefs have the best colors. Purple? Blah.

 

 

 

This is just a small sample of the tweets Bishop is getting from KC fans. Will it make a difference? Who knows. But it certainly can’t hurt for Chiefs fans to let free agents know they’ll be playing for the best fans in the NFL.

    The Kingdom always does a great job of wooing players. Unfortunately, that’s not very important in the grand scheme of things. I’m surprised it’s taken this long. He’s NOT going to get a long-term deal this year. I doubt seriously there’s much difference between the contracts he’s been offered. Pick a team already.

    • Jim Harper

      True that Stacy, but if all things are pretty equal then maybe the Kingdom can be a bit of a difference maker. Anyway it can’t hurt!

      • Stacy D. Smith

        The longer this wears on, the more I think he’ll sign elsewhere. Hope I’m wrong about that though.

      I still believe whichever among the three teams signs him, it will not be the amount he was due in GB for both ’13 and ’14. Perhaps, this dose of reality about his new worth is what delays any deal.

      • Stacy D. Smith

        For sure. It’s time for him to swallow that jagged little pill and move on. Teams are off until training camps open. There won’t be any additional interest until players start their annual injury dropoff in July and August. He should probably make his decision, get his playbook, get prepared, and be ready to hit the ground running come late-July.

  • Jared Watson

    We already had a priest, might as well bring in a bishop. Will the stars continue to align this offseason?

    • berttheclock

      I would love to see a Chiefs player win the new “Deacon” Jones award, this season.

      • Jared Watson

        What’s up with the puns? Don’t you know Sanders is the second Comming of Brandon Flowers?

        • berttheclock

          The new NFL Deacon Jones award will be for the player with the most sacks in the 2013 season.

          • Jared Watson

            Yes, I know, and I saw your pun too!

          • berttheclock

            Thanks, as I still believe any sack is the best friend of defensive backs. Remember how Derrick Thomas could take control of a game by sacking and knocking the ball loose? I was lucky enough to see Deacon Jones play. Tremendous first step, a slap to the side of a helmet and he was on top of the QB.

          • Jared Watson

            DT was a master of that. This defense needs the 90′s again. Actually, it needs to play up to what we see on paper. Tired of giving up so many big plays. Onward and upward.

  • Killerdoctor27

    UPDATE: The Giants are reportedly raising the offer price for Vonta Leach. If this is indeed true, then it could be down to just a two horse race with the Vikings vs. Chiefs. This could get interesting:)

    • Stacy D. Smith

      I said the very same thing to someone this morning. That’s an interesting turn of events. I think Leach would prefer to go back to Houston though (so that may not matter).

  • Altarium

    Hey I did my part and tweeted him! It’s been a long couple of days just waiting to hear any news about his decision…

  • Jarad

    Im really hoping he signs with KC, but im also already satisfied with what has taken place this off-season. We all know how bad the offense has been based primarily on the QB position. But what has bothered me most (outside the QB position) is the performance of this Chiefs defense!! Whether theyve been misused or they just underperformed, there is WAY too much talent on that side of the ball to not be a top 10 D! Yes they got screwed over and over by a putrid Offense, but this squad has to make plays this year. Hopefully Sutton can finally combine all this individual talent into one killer Defense!

    • Michael Shaw

      I am pretty sure you will see a different defense this year…………..IF the offense shows up. Remember, now matter how good your defense is, you won’t win games if the opposing offense is on the field for 70% of the game or so. That wears your defense out and leads to blowouts when your own offense can’t do anything but 3 and outs.

  • Barney Logan

    this whole time I thought I was the only one doing it

  • PunjabiPete

    I’m getting chills here… let me turn this fan down…

    In all seriousness I just can’t see other cities doing stuff this awesome. If I was Bishop I would give the Chiefs a little more credence… for all our shortcomings when it comes to being fair weather fans or the PERCEPTION of being fair weather fans, we are just as quick to lay down the love like a Barry White album and a bottle of Courvasiere.
