Chiefs GM Brett Veach Keeps on, Keepin’ on — Plus a Long Shot!

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet       Brett Veach is not showing he is shy about making moves. For me? He is fitting players to the Chiefs that mirrors my list of needs, starting with two Cornerbacks, one inside and the other outside.  Of course that list of needs is fairly extensive but he solved two of the six I have listed:   Inside CB? – Check (Fuller) Outside CB? – Check (Amerson) MIKE ILB – Check (Ragland) is extensive due to the state of the defense WIL ILB? – Pending…

NSLU*: Sometimes, A Great Notion

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet               A Notion on the Offense – 4 Solid Play-Makers and one Emerging The 2017 Chiefs offense ranked 15th over-all. That is good comparing the previous 5 seasons. My notion is that without making a move at all, the offense will improve. Patrick Mahomes taking over the helm calling signals and passing the ball will not be a negative, rather a positive. If that is true then the various component players will expand their role and more closely align themselves to…

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet         NSLU*: An Approach to Resolving Exposure and Weaknesses of the Chiefs – Part III Adding Missing Pieces via the Draft  – A Mock Draft [02/05/18] Read Part I here Read Part II here     My conclusions to this 3-Part monstrosity is now provided. It uses an example mock draft (in which I did not trade back) and did reject one player who absolutely will not be a round 2 selection. This draft? I covered as many exposures as possible. This is a dream draft…

The NSLU*: An Approach to Resolving Exposure and Weaknesses of the Chiefs – Part I

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet       Thinking upon the upcoming NFL activities and the draft, it is likely that most fans, writers, pundits and analysts would almost unanimously agree that the glaring weakness of the Chiefs roster has been on the defensive side of the ball for the past two seasons. Here are the exposures, listed without order of importance except to put the defense in front of those on offense: NT, ILB, CB Inside, CB Outside, OLB and Safety. It is apparent to most that all the problems are solved…

NSLU: Much Ado About Very Little and Waiting for Godot

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet       Much Ado About Very Little I was not at all impressed by anything in this game, the East-West Shrine Game. I had hoped to see someone stand out. Maybe there was the throw by Shimonek to the front left corner of the end zone for a TD and the win. But not much else. JT Barrett did nothing to make his case though he was not helped by receivers dropping passes. I saw no great defensive standouts, which as mentioned yesterday in comments, I…
