Frank Clark‘s health
Frank Clark knows he receives the criticism he does from Chiefs Kingdom (and others) because a man simply cannot be paid that much without being over-analyzed. That said, there are some who dismiss Clark out of hand just because of the enormity of his contract, which overlooks his presence and production along the defensive front that the Chiefs have come to rely upon.
The truth is Clark is a solid pass rusher who can turn it in when the games are the most important. Clark’s postseason productivity has been very impressive and it was clear the Chiefs edge rush lacked teeth for most of the game’s sixty minutes on Sunday despite some impressive turns from Mike Danna and Alex Okafor both, especially late in the game.
If Clark is ready to return next Sunday against the Ravens after having a week off, it will go a long way toward making the front line more fearsome. It will also allow other players to slide in where they are supposed to instead of compensating for the loss of a cornerstone player up front.
