  1. It's reporting day for rookies and QBs. I guess that makes it the day to post early guesses at the 53 man roster. It's got a few that I disagree with, but overall not bad. https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/lists/kansas-city-chiefs-2021-training-camp-53-man-roster-projections/ J
  2. It's reporting day for rookies and QBs. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2021/7/23/22590152/chiefs-players-begin-reporting-to-training-camp-on-friday For what it may be worth, this article throws out seven Chiefs who have never made the Prop Bowl, but could--Sneed, Thuney, Hitchens, Reed, Butker, Clyde, Taco. They missed the rookies. With the attention on the OL, Humphrey and Niang could make splashes. While we are at it, Bolton is a decent shot at DROY attention. For https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/lists/kansas-city-chiefs-possible-first-time-pro-bowlers-2021/
  3. It's amazing how the Saints, Patriots, and Packers have turned out outstanding lines for decades at a time without top 50 picks. Thuney was 3rd round and Onwenu was 6th. I'm a bit surprised there was not more objection to the Chiefs being top 10 since it's likely none of the starters was starting last year. I guess it's hard to argue with talent. J
  4. This is a video review of our new LT, Orland Brown, JR. The Jr is important, because his dad played and he plays for his dad. While he is on the last year of his rookie contract, OBJr has made noises about re-signing if that is possible. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2021/7/22/22584273/orlando-brown-jr-film-deep-dive-chiefs-offense-left-tackle The bottom line At this point, it is clear the Chiefs gained a player of substantial value in Orlando Brown Jr. for 2021 and hopefully beyond. At just 25 years old, his prime playing years probably haven’t been seen yet. If (or when) the day c
  5. The Chiefs are fortunate not to have lived decades of 2-14 to 4-12, but there have been some bad years. The rules are that the player had to play at least ten games and the team won at most five. I'd go to war with this group. Waters, Dawson, and Gonzalez are HoF and at least five others are Pro Bowl. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2021/7/22/22584690/chiefs-all-time-cellar-dweller-team-offense-part-2 Offense WR1 — Carlos Carson, 1987 LT — Jim Tyrer, 1963 LG — Brian Waters, 2009 C — Jack Rudnay, 1975 RG — Tom Condon, 1978 RT — Jim Nicholson, 1976 TE — Tony Gonzalez, 2008
  6. What these stories do not understand is that neither Hardman nor Watkins was WR2 last season. That was Robinson. Hardman will replace Watkins as the second outside receiver. We will see if he grows into that role. Third season has been the real start of many WR careers. The interesting part of that PT battle is where and how often Powell plays. They are already talking about how smart he is and how quick he gets things. The Remmers and Niang duel is also interesting, because Remmers was a good RT. That said, Niang was a late 1st round talent who was discounted by an injury. He's had a who
  7. PFF picked three positions per team. There are the ones they have for the Chiefs. Realistically, only RT is a battle for the position. The other two are for playing time. https://www.pff.com/news/nfl-three-training-camp-battles-afc-teams-2021 KANSAS CITY CHIEFS WIDE RECEIVER: MECOLE HARDMAN VS. DEMARCUS ROBINSON VS. BYRON PRINGLE VS. CORNELL POWELL The Chiefs are one Tyreek Hill injury away from having very questionable depth at wide receiver. The Athletic’s Nate Taylor wrote in early July that Hardman is expected to take on the WR2 role previously held by Sammy Watkins. Hardma
  8. What caught my attention was the #7 grade for the Chiefs' rebuilt OL. Bringing in two Pro Bowl grade players is never bad, but the OL may include two rookies and only one returning starter. That player, RG Laurant Duvernay-Tardif, started the Chiefs' first Super Bowl team. He just won an award for opting out of the 2020 season to treat COVID patients. #1 is the Cleveland Browns. This is where they graded last season and it's too bad Joe Thomas is not there to be part of it. Detroit made the top 10. What do you think of the rankings? Are they too influenced by last season, or no
  9. PFF's new OL ranking put Chiefs in top 10. It's perhaps a bit premature, but 's hard to argue with the amount of talent. I am only quoting a portion of the long entry. https://www.pff.com/news/nfl-ranking-all-32-nfl-offensive-line-units-entering-2021-season 7. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS The biggest story of the offseason in Kansas City was the overhaul of the offensive line. The overhaul started with the releases of long-time tackles Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz, who formed one of the best duos in the league. The Chiefs traded for Ravens starting tackle Orlando Brown Jr., essentia
  10. we will have game threads in due course. This is more for articles involving the the whole season or the whole league. Nate Davis of USA Today has a sobering prediction for Chiefs fans--no Super Bowl. He predicts the Brown will win the AFC title, and implies that they beat the Chiefs in week #1. He makes one good point. With the rebuilt OL and DL, the early part of the season is going to be rough. https://sports.yahoo.com/nfl-record-projections-2021-tom-120750909.html (4) Kansas City Chiefs (12-5): Mahomes mused about going 20-0 last month – and later backed away from it – yet there are
  11. Of the other teams, the Chargers appear to be the best, though they are likely at least a year away. https://www.yardbarker.com/general_sports/articles/the_chargers_have_improved_but_still_arent_serious_threats_to_the_chiefs/s1_16631_35419487 J
  12. This article asks if anyone will replace Anthony Sherman this year, then talks about his fashion statements. What is a better question is whether we will see anyone lining up at FB this season. Last year, when Sherman was hurt, Kelce spent time in the backfield. Noah Gray played some FB at Duke. Either way you get a receiving threat who can block on the move. https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2021/07/20/kansas-city-chiefs-2021-training-camp-anthony-sherman-arrival-recap/ J
  13. It appears Okafor will be back. It's not big news, but it gives us some depth at DE. Danna is solid against the Run. Okafor provides some pass rush. https://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/articles/chiefs_reportedly_re_sign_deolb_alex_okafor_to_one_year_deal/s1_14819_35415401 Here is another article on Okafor, who is experienced and offers at least something against both run and pass. That said, it is important to remember that Okafor could not take snaps from Tanoh Kpassagnon, who has zero pass rush. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2021/7/21/22586110/3-ways-bringing-back-alex-okafor-will-benefit-
  14. Dallas will stay in the NFC East until current ownership dies. J
  15. History, 18 of the last 20 years, says it will happen. Last place to the playoffs is a different question. J
