On this episode of Roughing the Kicker, Joshua Brisco looks around the Chiefs world and dives into top questions and debates from around the internet, including how good the Chiefs’ RB/WR/TE combo is, the third-best player on the roster, what to think of a usually-bad statistic that applies to this team, and things that have a 90%, 50%, and 10% chance of happening for Kansas City this season. Also on the show, breaking down the latest Chiefs and major NFL news, including the future of Evan Mathis and Knile Davis’ claim about the difference between him and Jamaal Charles.

My favorite prediction vessel of this offseason comes by this piece over on Arrowhead Pride. It asks Chiefs fans to predict things that have a 90%, 50% and 10% chance of happening within this Kansas City Chiefs season. I went a step further and came up with an optimistic and a cynical idea for each percentage, and I’d love to hear your 90/50/10s in comparison to my own. Mine involve injuries, Andy Reid, Alex Smith, and the Chiefs defense.
Here on AA, we debated who the Chiefs third-best player is, and I have a hard time giving a name with any strong opinion. I do, however, have a strong opinion about the future of Evan Mathis. It more or less boils down to hoping that he stays far out of the AFC West, even though that means he won’t be in Kansas City. I also strongly believe that Knile Davis is missing one major factor that is a key in Jamaal Charles’ game, and I argue that the Chiefs have an (at least) top-five RB/WR/TE trio in the NFL.
As you listen to this very opinion/prediction/debate-based episode, please jump into the comments and share your own thoughts and be prepared to discuss them with the rest of us! Conversations like these are going to be the only way we make it all the way to the regular season.
