What now feels like such a foolish thought that I thought that I predicted this team could win 10 games this year has become a disappointing reality that the Chiefs as of now look like a sub .500 team. Can they turn it around? Of course they can, but the reason for panic is certainly understood as it’s not just one player or position holding this team back. I’ve been hard on Smith but the offensive line is really bad, which hurts Jamaal Charles from getting going as well.

Currently the offensive line has been graded at a – 8.7  in pass blocking (20th in the league) and a – 5.9 (11th in the league) in run blocking. With Smith on pace to take a league record amount of sacks it’s safe to say that the offensive line could be historically bad. A lot of us felt like the Chiefs trading for Grubbs and a “healthy” Eric Fisher would improve the offensive line but it might be even worse than last year. I’m searching for answers, and it is obvious letting go of Branden Albert was a big mistake for Kansas City and they know it.

The team will have to make do with the roster they have for the rest of the season but Reid has to set forth an agenda to rectify this problem as this is three straight years the offensive line has made no improvement.
