The Chiefs’ reality moving forward

6 of 6

The Chiefs have a talented roster, but there obviously needs to be a shake-up both on the offensive side of the ball, and in the coaching staff. Kansas City has not drafted a quarterback in the first round since taking Todd Blackledge in 1983. If this franchise is ever going to make some headway, that statistic needs to change immediately if at all possible.

In the past 30 years, the Chiefs have rolled out other team’s backups on a consistent basis. We are ranging from Dave Krieg and Steve DeBerg to Steve Bono and Elvis Grbac, to Matt Cassel and Alex Smith. Kansas City needs a face of the franchise under center, once and for all.

Looking into 2016, that player could be on the board. He will be sitting behind Smith for a season (or at least the beginning of it) but that’s alright. In the mean time, we will watch Dorsey try to find a top left tackle, a good right guard and perhaps a few assistant coaches. The defense also needs to be shored up. How Dorsey goes about that will tell us his feelings on the current group.

This season is lost. The future is not.
