bye week for roster moves
The Chiefs gained nothing from their victory last week
in San Diego unless they learned it was probably a fluke.
The team played listless, boring football and were routed
27-7 in New Jersey.
Another uninspiring effort by TrINT Green who finished
the game with a, gulp...35.4 QB rating.
He pushed his league leading interception total to 16.
Only five completions were recorded by the wideouts. The
Chiefs committed four turnovers. The player of the game
was the punter. The reward (at least for the fans) is
a bye week.
Yes they are bad. Yes they have lousy personnel. Yes
the coaches have done an awful job. Need documentation--
Take A Memo:
--I have an incredible list from the beating the Jets
and Paul Hackett put on the Chiefs but they seem repetitive.
The Chiefs now receive an undeserved week off due to a
scheduled NFL bye.
--Forget the criticism from this game its time
for some changes no matter how slight they may be.
--Use these 14 days off for some roster moves.
--Admit that the four wide receiver, four tight end roster
configuration is a mistake.
--Admit that you dont need 7 LBs on the roster.
--Cut WR/KR Dante Hall. He is no threat on special teams
and cant play receiver.
--Cut TE/WR Mikhael Ricks. Ricks may have talent, but
he doesnt fit.
--Re-sign WR/KR Tony Horne. Sure he looked awful in pre-season,
but he cant be worse then Hall.
--If you are against that sign WR Travis McGriff. You
may want to hurry or Denver will re-sign him and you will
lose yet another receiver to the Broncos.
--Promote KR Aveion Carson from the practice squad to
--Cut LB Larry Atkins. Yes I know hes from UCLA.
Youre not in SoCal anymore. He couldnt make
it as a safety and cant play LB. You should be able
to finish the season with 6 LBs on the roster.
--Sign WR Dave Klemic from the practice squad. I have
no idea if he has any talent, but how are we to know?
Get him on the active roster and play him.
--Use the rest of the season to evaluate what talent
you have and figure out who wants to play for the Chiefs.
These slight moves will change little on a team that
is playing uninspired football for the most part. But
it will give the team a chance to create a better-balanced
roster for the offense the team is attempting to run.
