The Kansas City Chiefs are just days away from reporting to training camp so to get a better idea of what we can expect from the team this season, we talked to some psychics and asked for some guidance.
THis is the second part in this series. Yesterday, we learned that the Chiefs might not make it back to the Super Bowl until 2021. Ouch. Though one psychic said KC could be back in the big game in as little as three seasons.
With the ongoing Branden Albert contract situation, I decided to ask about whether or not Albert would end up being a Chief for the long haul. I also asked about No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher. The predictions were varied and some were surprising.
Let’s get to it.
Obviously Eric Fisher, the No. 1 pick, is coming to the team with high expectations. Chiefs fans would like to know if he will be a consistent Pro Bowler and if he will stay at right tackle or eventually move to left tackle?
Over half of the psychics from Hollywood Psychics queried believe that Fisher will eventually serve as both right and left tackle, citing his versatility. However, there were some dissenting voices who also believed that while Fisher will remain consistent in his duties as right tackle, he won’t be doubling-up any time soon. Two of the psychics profiled foresaw an injury to Fisher’s extremities that may put him on the bench.
Yikes. An injury to his extremities? I don’t like the sound of that. The Chiefs do have a decent backup in Donald Stephenson but if KC wants to win this season, the team nees Fisher on the field and playing well.
Current LT Branden Albert is currently playing under a one-year franchise tag contract. He is seeking a new, long-term deal from the team. Is it likely that he will stay with the Chiefs and get a new deal or will he depart as a free agent after the 2013 season?
The majority of the psychics consulted believe that left tackle Branden Albert will exercise his free agent status and depart the Chiefs after the 2013 season wraps. One of the psychics remarked, “He’s from the one-position school. Don’t be surprised if he is used less and less and his performance decreases. I see an injury that could sideline him for some time. Mentally, I see him frustrated and he will try to overdo it, causing the injury. With Fisher, he will feel his position with the team threatened.”
Interestingly, Eric Fisher is a Capricorn and Branden Albert is born under the sign of Scorpio. In the latter part of 2012, Saturn (Capricorn’s ruling planet) set up shop in Scorpio, intending to stay until 2015. In turn, Saturn has entered a period of “mutual reception” with Pluto (Scorpio’s ruling planet), ensuring a connection between these two astrological signs. While it can herald Fisher and Albert working together, this connection of these two planets can also signal a period of intense aggression or a series of trials both signs must undergo, either alone, or possibly together.
I don’t think you need to be a psychic to know that Albert is probably going to depart in free agency next offseason but the prediction that his performance may suffer to the point where he finds himself on the bench is kind of startling.
I think it makes sense that Albert could push a little because he feels like he has something to prove this season. That pushing could negatively impact his performance.
Still, the only way I see Albert earning a spot on the bench is because of injury or because the Chiefs are losing a lot and Andy Reid wants to evaluate some of the younger tackles.
The Chiefs are going to pay Albert just shy of $10 million this season. He’d really have to struggle before they’d bench him.
What do you think, Addicts? Are the psychic’s right
Tomorrow, we’ll have some predictions for rookie RB Knile Davis and we also have some info coming on Jamaal Charles. Stay tuned.
