What a bunch of Nervous Nellies. Relax. The Chiefs did fine last year without much of a contribution from Maclin.
So far, Reid and Dorsey have done a fine job of consistently, though slowly, improving this roster. They have earned the right to a bit of trust. I liked Maclin fine, and he had a great year two years ago. However, this new approach by Dorsey/Reid reminds me of the successful Patriot Way. No sentiment, no holding on to players who have started to decline. Nothing personal, but this is a business.
I really, really hope DJ is able to come back full strength. If not, we could be saying good-bye to a real fan favorite soon. I would hate that, but ya gotta move on. It's not what have you done for me lately, it's what can you do for me right now?
