Hill is not a 3 down receiver

Not last year.  But time and experience does not stand still, Wilkie.  He could very well end up a three down receiver before the season is over.

Yes he is. In multiple locations on the field.

We have some good receiving RB's and an improving Conley and an established Maclin.  Others may show up big time. Hill will stretch the defense.  I'm not worried, especially if our O-line is healthy and we are running better.  A tandem of Hunt and Ware at RB, an improved and healthy O-line, and the overall passing game should work much better, and keep opposing offenses off the field a couple more minutes per game.  And that is a very big deal.

Maybe the Chiefs have high hopes for Robinson and Chesson.  It's not often that a GM will give up a premium FA signing without a reason.

I am with Wills here. Huge hole to fill. It is no picknick drawing a team's #1 CB on nearly every play.

I like that. Surprise signing or surprise performance from one of the boys?

Something like that.  Some kind of surprise is pretty predictable. Did you read the article in Arrowhead Pride today about "The Dorsey Way" regarding Maclin?

what I got from the article was that WR is just a revolving door until they find one that sticks..Moral of the story is dont buy a WR Chiefs Jersey because even if they do stay around  they wont for long. Jordy Nelson seems to the  the exception to the rule.

 

at least thats what i got out of it..just playing the numbers is all

It makes sense, but WRs are pretty hit and miss. I guess a numbers game is a good approach. I just wish we had someone over 24 yo or who has had a 600 yard season.

You don't need a bunch of high priced targets with the right system + QB.

If you have that, you can play a turd at WR and get production. That's why GB doesn't spend a lot on their passing targets.

That's how I interpreted it, too. 

 

That's how the Pats have done it.  Once you find a great QB, all you need (other than great coaches) is keep your cap money in high positive territory, develop from within, and draft a year in advance of an expensive player becoming too expensive, no matter who they are.  I am not totally sure about that philosophy, but it is hard to argue that it has worked for the Pats.

As long as the turd is sticky, it works.
