The QBs are actually looking pretty good (Brodie does still have some decision-making issues to improve on), but the WRs had a rough week last week. And it sounded like Gunny was ready to sacrifice a few defensive players to the Gods, in supplication for a successful season.

No need for spoiler tags in this thread.

I am a Chiefs fan. I'll actually concur with your prediction that the Chiefs will have a crappy season. But it has little to do with the QB position, and spending any money at all on Leftwich would have been a complete waste. The Chiefs' problem on offense is the line. We've lost two perennial All-Pros over the past two seasons, and not done much to replace them (and the starting center almost retired over the offseason too). Roaf and Shields were the heart of the offense, and let us do just about anything we wanted to from a game planning perspective. With them, our line did everything well. So we could run (straight ahead or to the edge), pass (3-step, 5-step, 7-step, screens), and keep opponents off-balance with the variety. Now? Now any QB is lucky to have time to get of a pass from a 3-step drop. Running to the edge is difficult, if not impossible. The offense will be ugly unless some linemen really step up.

Leftwich would have been a disaster. He's relatively immobile, and injury prone. He would've been like a tackling dummy back there - only he wouldn't have popped back up so easily.

IF (and that's a big "if") Damion McIntosh proves to be as good as his press clippings, AND he can get back in the flow of things quickly (he missed all of camp with a knee injury), we might be OK on the left side. We're still having issues on the right side. Neither Turley nor Terry has looked particularly good. Maybe Svitek (who subbed in for McIntosh and looked slow on the left side) can step in on the right side. We'll see.

OTOH, I'd actually prefer the Chiefs to go around 3-13 or 4-12 this season. It's time to reboot this team. And it's not going to happen as long as King Carl cobbles together just enough talent for the coaches to pull out 7-9, 8-8, 9-7 seasons.

I'm not a Chiefs fan and I really enjoy the show. It gives a real good inside view.

Check below for an upcoming spoiler

The Chiefs will have a crappy 5-11 season - they should have snapped up Leftwhich after cutting Printers. (yes I'm a Bronco's fan)

In truth it was kind of sad, Printers was cut the day I watched the latest show, where he talks about how much making the team matters to him etc. etc.

I didn't see another episode-specific thread, so I figured I'd just use this one as a catch-all.

I like last night's episode a lot. It was cool to see the process by which they set the roster - the personnel guy having the coaches not only choose who's in and out, but also to specifically identify who's #51, 52, and 53, so that they're prepared when/if a particularly attractive player comes available.

I felt a little bad for Casey Printers, but was it really that hard to come up with an example for him of why he didn't make the cut? How about, "You've been with us for three years now, and you still have problems with the center exchange, including fumbling in scoring position at the end of a game. You haven't progressed enough for us to have any confidence that you'll develop into even a #2 QB for it to be worth our while to continue investing in your development."

Tank and Turk as roommates are hilarious. THAT would be a fun NFL Network reality series. "At Home with Tank and Turk - A Season in the Life of NFL Rookies". :D Seeing them shopping for furniture and accessories at Nebraska Furniture Mart was fun. "$12.99 for a plate? There ain't even any food on it."
