The first week of free agency has dimmed the optimism of many Chiefs fans who were hoping to make a big move in towards competing with Denver. The lack of a big name signing while Denver appears to be signing any and everyone has even led some to already throw in the towel on the 2014 season.
It has been intense enough that our own Stacy Smith wrote about it this morning. It is really good and everyone should take a few minutes to read it if you haven’t already. Here’s a clip:
Suddenly, all faith in the front office had vanished. Optimism was vanquished with the loss of Emmanuel Sanders. He’s a quality football player, but not the kind of singular acquisition that would help get Kansas City over the hump. This loss was more symbolic. The situation served as a microcosm for being mired in mediocrity for the past two decades. The ne’er-do-well Chiefs had again left their adoring fans with little to believe in. At least, such is the case for some.
There seems to be two camps of people when it comes to the dismay over the Chiefs’ off-season through one week: A) The Chiefs haven’t been aggressive enough in acquiring and/or keeping talent or B) the Broncos have acquired enough talent that there is no way the Chiefs can catch them.
So we ask you, Addicts who are down on the Chiefs early off-season returns, what concerns you most about the way the last week has unfolded? Is it the lack of Chiefs’ moves or is it Denver getting richer than Solomon? Vote in the poll and let us know why you voted the way you did.
