Chiefs could be lowly

Teams come out of nowhere and surprise in the NFL all the time, so I’m never floored when it happens. But when it comes to the 2007 Kansas City Chiefs, I think I’ll be floored if they manage to get just 9 or 10 wins and challenge for the playoffs, as they did last year.

They’re not going to have QB Trent Green on their roster, so forget about them getting strong play from the QB position over the long haul this year. I know veteran Damon Huard played well last year, but where has Huard been the last 10 years? Nowhere, that’s where. Huard could be something off a moot point anyway, since the team appears to be ready to give second year player Brodie Croyle every chance to win the starting job.

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
