It’s time to analyze cheap jerseys china the Kansas City Chiefs’ 53-man roster.
As I sit down to write this on Sunday afternoon the news of the Kansas City Chiefs roster moves continues to come in. In the past several days the Chiefs have made multiple cuts, trades, and signings as they try to finalize their 53-man roster for their week one game next Sunday against wholesale jerseys the San Diego Chargers. Overall I’m incredibly happy with the Chiefs roster. KC has as deep of team as we have seen in a very long time and the fact that they had to cut some promising players is actually a very good thing.
The team that Andy Reid and John Dorsey wholesale jerseys china took over when they arrived couldn’t cut any promising players because the roster was so paper thin when it came to talent. In fact, the Chiefs famously pilfered the waiver wire after cuts and filled out their roster with cast offs from other teams. Now, a few years later the Chiefs are one of the NFL’s deep teams that has other teams looking at their cast offs. That’s progress.
While the Chiefs have a deep and talented roster and I believe they are poised to make another playoff run this season I do think cheap jerseys from china some of the moves they have made are interesting to look at. When you do have a deep roster it makes cuts less obvious and more open for debate. So I thought before the first game takes place this coming Sunday (woo hoo!) I’d take one last look at the moves they’ve made and where the roster stands going forward.
I’ll tackle one move at a time and look at the possible pros and cons of each of these moves and where I personally come down on each of them. Let’s start with the cheap nfl jerseys move I like the least.
NEXT: cheap jerseys Did KC pick the right wide receivers?
The Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Diego Chargers 33-27 in overtime on Sunday. cheap jerseys from china While that sentence is a factual statement it is still hard for me to comprehend and even harder for me to put into words. If it was considered acceptable for a piece here at Arrowhead Addict to be just 36 words long this post might have just been:
“Woo hoo cheap jerseys Chiefs won! The Chiefs won! I can’t believe it! What just happened? I can’t feel my legs! The first half was awful. The fourth quarter and overtime were amazing! Woo hoo the Chiefs won!”
That’s really kind of my general response to this game. I’m going to try to go into a little more detail but as I sit here writing this just a couple of hours after the game ended its still hard for me to wrap my head around it. Here in a moment I’m going to talk about what went so horribly wrong in the first half (maybe even three quarters). However, I want to be very clear about this and get it on the record so listen up.
While there were things that were REALLY bad early in this game none of them take the joy of this win away. The win is all that matters and it was amazing. I was literally running around my house like a crazy person yelling when they won. It was fun. It was great. Chiefs fans should enjoy it. Period.
That having been said, there were some things in the first half of this game that Kansas City needs to clean up going forward so they don’t have to continually come back from 21 point deficits. If for no other reason than the fact that I don’t think my nerves can handle that happening every week. You can choose to ignore those things and just enjoy the cheap jerseys china win, that’s fine. I personally can enjoy the win while looking back at BOTH the good and the bad.
So I’m going to split this post into two sections the rest of the way. The first section will be what went wrong in order for the Chiefs to fall behind 24-7 and then the second wholesale jerseys china section will be about what they did right to finish the game on a 30-3 run and come away with the overtime win.
Let’s start with what went wrong early. wholesale jerseys
NEXT: cheap nfl jerseys An ugly start
Who should the Kansas City Chiefs be targeting in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft? Here are some names to consider.
In this column, I’m exploring some players that Chiefs fans could and should keep an eye on for the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft. I have spent time trying as best I can to evaluate the prospects based on a combination of need, positional value, scheme fit, and draft position. Obviously we’d love to see Jabrill Peppers or Myles Garrett in Chiefs’ red next season, but that is highly unlikely to happen.
We also have to give credit here to Matt Miller of Bleacher Report and Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network, whose work I read tirelessly to learn about undervalued prospects. In some cases, they either validated what I already believed or made me re-think my stance. Definitely check out their wholesale jerseys china work.
So who might be a fit in the 20s (or 30s)? Let’s wholesale jerseys run them down…
Mitch Trubisky, cheap jerseys china QB, North Carolina (6-foot-3, 220 pounds, RS Junior)
The Chiefs will likely have to make a decision this offseason about the future of the quarterback position. Either they will move on from Alex Smith or commit to him for the foreseeable future with a new contract.
This is the first season for Trubisky as a starter after spending the past two seasons as a backup to cheap jerseys since-graduated Marquis Williams. Taking the reins, all Trubisky has done is season is lead the Tar Heels to a 5-2 record while posting a 70 percent completion rate, 15 touchdowns (two interceptions) and 2,068 passing yards.
In terms of strengths, Trubisky is an athletic, relaxed quarterback in the pocket. He possesses an accurate and fairly strong arm, and the offense being run at North Carolina appears to be very similar to the offense run here in KC. He has experience both under center and in the cheap nfl jerseys shotgun, running both traditional and read-option offenses. He’s also, in a short period of time, faced various defenses and opponents.
This season, North Carolina has faced opponents such as Georgia, Florida State, Miami (FL), Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and Illinois. His worst game (both interceptions) came in the game against Virginia Tech during the hurricane weekend.
Concerns about Trubisky center mainly around his lack of starting experience. Entering his first season as a full starter, Trubisky has looked good and solid in every game save for Virginia Tech. cheap jerseys from china While limited playing experience wasn’t a huge issue with Cardale Jones last year, he obviously was not discussed as a first-round selection like Trubisky currently is.
Each game for the remainder of the season looms large in terms of showing development and feel. However, unless the word gets out on how to stop him and you see his game fall off the cliff, there’s a lot to like about his potential.
NEXT: How about corner?
Eric Berry deserves a new contract from the cheap jerseys from china Kansas City Chiefs but it needs to make financial sense.
Since last offseason, the majority of Chiefs fans I see discussing Eric Berry say the team has to sign him. They don’t say they want them to, or that it is in the best interest of the team. They say the Chiefs have to give the safety a blank check, because the team can’t compete at the same level without him.
There have been three players in the last 10 years that I have heard the same talk about: Larry Johnson, Dwayne Bowe and Justin Houston. All three were thought by most fans as players the Chiefs had to sign no matter what. Yet a trip down memory lane shows that it wasn’t the case, at least with all three.
Larry Johnson was one of the best running backs in football in 2006. When he chose to held out for more money in 2007, fans screamed to pay him. wholesale jerseys china The Chiefs went 9-7 in 2006, losing to the Colts in the playoffs. The city believed that the team would take a major step back without LJ, who had rushed for over 1,700 yards in back-to-back seasons. The Chiefs caved and signed Johnson to a six year, $45 million contract extension — a then-record high for running backs. He proceeded to rush for only 1,810 yards the next three seasons combined before getting cut.

Dwayne Bowe was the only receiving weapon the Chiefs had following the disastrous 2012 season, and every radio show and fan on social media was concerned about the lack of weapons. New quarterback Matt Cassel needed someone to throw to, and the Chiefs absolutely had to sign Bowe. The Chiefs agreed and made Bowe the third highest-paid receiver in the league when they signed him to a five-year, $56 million deal. Bowe only played two seasons for the Chiefs after that contract, catching only 117 passes total for 1,400 yards and 5 touchdowns. He was out of the league entirely after one single away from the Chiefs — with the Cleveland Browns.
Justin Houston recorded 22 sacks in 2014, a single half sack away from Michael Strahan’s NFL record for sacks in a season. Once again, I heard the Chiefs had to sign Houston no matter the cost. They couldn’t let one of the best pass rushers in the league walk away. After tagging him, they cheap nfl jerseys signed Houston to a six-year $101 million deal, making him the first $100 million player in Chiefs history. A few months after he signed, Houston suffered a knee injury and required surgery. In the process, Houston missed almost all the 2016 season, and in the ensuing two years, Houston has played 16 games and recorded only 11.5 sacks.
I’m not saying these players didn’t all deserve new contracts. The question is whether the Chiefs should have given them as much as they did. I don’t believe any player should have a blank check unless they are a top ten quarterback. Players who have question marks on their records should bring even more caution to the negotiation table. Johnson was coming off two seasons where he averaged almost 400 carries per year. That is a lot of wear and tear on a running back. Bowe was a head case with an inconsistent history on the field. Houston had a bit of an injury history — nothing as bad as his knee, cheap jerseys china of course, but it was there. All three were also coming off great contract seasons, which is always something to watch carefully.
WHILE [ERIC] BERRY IS A GREAT PLAYER AND A FRANCHISE ICON, YOU HAVE TO ADMIT THERE ARE FLAWS.
Eric Berry is one of the leaders of this team, and a lot of people say he’s the heart and soul of it. He is a great on the field player with a read and react ability in the run game that only Derrick Johnson can rival. He’s alslo a fan favorite and would be missed not only on the field but in the community. In other words, the Chiefs should sign Berry to a deal.
Berry isn’t perfect though; he has question marks. Despite his improvements this season, he can still cheap jerseys present a liability in coverage. He also comes with injury concerns after missing a season with a torn ACL. His hard-hitting style of play also means that concussions and further injury risks are a possibility, which also needs to be added to the risk of his cancer returning. While Berry is a great player and a franchise icon, you have to admit there are flaws.
Berry has said he wants to stay in Kansas City, so let’s see if he backs that up. He should not be the highest paid safety in the league; he has too many issues for that. wholesale jerseys The Chiefs also can’t afford to pay him at that level, as they do not have the cap space. The Chiefs showed great loyalty to Berry with all they did during his battle with cancer. They helped make Berry a hero in KC. It’s time Berry backs up his words and stays without hamstringing the franchise.
