Last week the Chiefs lost what seemed like half of their roster in a 90-minute frenzy. Today, we finally get around to saying good-bye to one of those lost on day one of free agency.
Geoff Schwartz, perhaps the greatest offensive guard to ever play for the Chiefs in 2013, decided to hang up his Chiefs helmet and travel to the mysterious land of New York. It was a stunning development for the long-time Chief, who had been with franchise ever since the arrival of Andy Reid and John Dorsey.
Let us not forget the significant impact Schwartz had on the Chiefs’ rise to 11 wins. Just look at these numbers:
- 7 starts
How can this possibly be overcome? Let us hope and pray tenured general manager John Dorsey can find a way to replace what is an irreplaceable part.
We honor Geoff Schwartz with a song that must have been written for Schwartz himself. Maybe upon reflection of the lyrics of this wonderfully crafted piece of art we’ll understand it was Mr. Schwartz telling the Chiefs to “put everything they own in a box to the left.”
So long, Geoff Schwartz. You shall never be fully replaced.
