From everything I heard, they needed one more year to figure out if they could do without Albert. Now, I think they are comfortable with Fisher and Stephenson as the tackles. It was just a year too late, for that decision...

Only Denver gets Von, Harris, Moore, Wolfe, Vickerson, all back plus it looks like we are going to resign DRC and could possibly upgrade FS or SS over the next day or 2.

kFc gets to pick over San Fran's garbage pile again this year looking for starters on the cheap.

Drafting in the mid 20's is going to hurt them as the quality impact players will be off the board by the time they pick in each round. Plus they may be forced to draft for need vs BPA which will mean reaching on dudes.

SD scares me more this year than kFc.

I saw where they were expected to lose Geoff Schwartz, as well. Alex Smith needs to be VERY worried, with half his offensive line expected to be playing elsewhere...

They lost their slot and return guy in mCcluster when they are already thin at WR.

Not sure how they hope to compete for the division on Charles's back yet again this year after all the work he got last year.

That was a HUGE loss, for them. I'll be interested to see if the local mulletheads grasp this concept...

He was perfect for their dink and dunk pass game, not a great downfield WR as we saw when he dropped a couple deep passes in our game but he can be used like Harvin was used vs us in the SB on those quick routes out of motion and gain 4-8 yards before getting hit.

Chiefs will definitely get a 3rd round comp pick for Albert leaving in 2015. So, they will be getting something. They're losing a lot of guys getting decent contracts (Albert, Jackson, Schwartz, Asamoah, McCluster) so they'll have quite a few comp picks in 2015. Doesn't help now, but still. They don't really have much cap room to sign people to offset those future picks either.

That line is bad though. They lost their best OT and their 2 best OGs. Jeff Allen sucks, Eric Fisher sucks, Donald Stephenson sucks. In one of the best drafts ever, they'll probably have to take Xavier Sua'a-Filo in Round 1 as the best O-lineman remaining.

Wow the KC OL is going to be patchwork. On the bright side San Diego's OL last year was supposed to be patchwork and turned out to be decent.

The strength of the Chiefs, their OL gets decimated in Free Agency. Bad day to be a Chiefs fan. Their best year in the last 20, and everybody leaves because they know they have no chance.

Too bad they don't get to play backup QB's for the first 10 games this year.

Saw a retweet (that has since been taken down) from arrowhead pride bragging about their offensive line versus the raiders when Charles scored 5 TDs which consisted of: Stephenson, Allen, Hudson, Schwartz and Fisher.

Yea, good luck with that line playing teams not named Oakland, considering the best name of those 5 no longer players in KC. !

well, they did spend the #1 overall pick on Fisher. So they got that going for them.

We won't know that until the season starts, between facing 2nd and 3rd stringers (who kFc fans fooled themselves into thinking were harder to face because there was no tape on them!) they lucked into facing Tony Romo when he was giving games away. They won't be that lucky this year.

They made a great move bringing in Reid, he stabilized the QB position, then Reid built a low risk offense based on ball control and centered around Charles. They built a D based on an above average pass rush with 2 pass rushers who thought Pass rush 1st and run 2nd. Their pass rush covered their issues in the secondary at multiple CB positions and safety. Throw in the fact that they protected the ball and their D forced turnovers and the fact that they were lucky (which was helped by playing good base fundamental football) and you have a team that made the Wildcard round of the playoffs.

However this year they have a QB who the whole league knows is inaccurate with his deep ball, a #1 WR who drops way too many balls and cannot get deep and an RB that was over worked at times last year to the point where they had to work on getting him less touches in games ending with a knee injury in the playoffs.

They are Cap strapped and now without a 2nd round pick since the 2nd pick for Smith was moved up from a 3rd to a 2nd because they won 8 games.

Going to be hard to improve the team when you can't spend money in FA and you have a late 1st day pick, nothing on day 2 then late picks in each of the later rounds.

They need OL starters and depth, an explosive WR, another RB, 2 CB's, Safety, a TE who can control the middle of the field.

I think this is a down year for them as they try to add young depth players that can win in 2-3 years after Manning retires while they try to stick around and win now via their ball control O and oppourtunistic (sp?) D.

This isn't a team built to go deep in the playoffs for a while yet but that is nothing new to kFc fans.

I'd say the defensive front 7 was their strength. Felt it was a mediocre pass protect offensive line that likely got considerably worse. The Chiefs situation is why you don't overpay for Dwayne Bowe and Sean Smith. Brandon Flowers also likely overpaid.

On the bright side, at least they didn't spend the #1 pick on a right tackle.
