@adamteicher: Reid is a respected coordinator and play-caller. Last Sunday's game against Denver was a tough one for the Chiefs offensively, but I don't put that on Reid. The Broncos were just too good for the Chiefs. The Chiefs couldn't block for Jamaal Charles, who had to earn every yard he rushed for, or protect Alex Smith. It's hard to call plays when little is working.
@adamteicher is Andy Reid a bad offensive coordinator ? Should he delegate that duty?— Matthew Jenkins (@mbjenkins4) December 5, 2014
Sean Smith is playing well at cornerback, but the Chiefs have had trouble finding someone to play that other spot consistently well. Cason might make some sense in that regard. But the fact he's out there without a job at this point in the season should be a red flag. Is he really at this point better than Phillip Gaines, Ron Parker, Jamell Fleming or Marcus Cooper? If he is, the Chiefs should take a look. Otherwise they're better off staying with what they have.
@adamteicher: Dwayne Bowe isn't playing up to the contract he signed last year for about $11 million per, so there is a good chance he is in his last season for the Chiefs. But if the Chiefs cut him, they have to be aggressive about finding a replacement. They should have drafted a receiver last year.
@adamteicher What is the chance Bowe is gone at the end of the season? Is there money there that could be used on a younger better receiver?— thomas harrell (@ou814us2) December 4, 2014
Justin Houston 's contract and the fact the Chiefs clearly aren't comfortable with Dee Ford, it's hard to see the Chiefs dumping Tamba Hali at this point. Perhaps he would agree to a pay cut. But unless the Chiefs get Houston signed to a long-term contract or Ford demonstrates he's ready to play, Hali is too valuable for the Chiefs to turn loose.
@adamteicher: The Chiefs might have to make some choices because Houston is going to be expensive one way or the other. The Chiefs don't need to rebuild their defensive line, but the offensive line is another matter. They have two journeymen (Mike McGlynn and Ryan Harris) starting for them now. They need to re-sign Rodney Hudson, but otherwise I don't see them being big spenders on the offensive line in free agency. Their starters next year might be Hudson, Jeff Allen, Donald Stephenson, Eric Fisher and Zach Fulton. They have a couple of developmental linemen who could break into the lineup and perhaps the Chiefs will draft a prospect who can help.
@adamteicher are we going to be able to pay Houston and rebuild our O-line next year? And D-line?— David A (@david_a12) December 1, 2014
