  • If RAC is gone, they could bring in a 4-3 coach, but it'd have to be a Marvin Lewis or John Fox type of defense to make use of Houston (who is 100% OLB).

      I don't think it's very likely at all.

      If the team is blown up that means RAC is gone, and I think they will look at someone with experience in the 3-4 when deciding on a suitable HC and DC as replacements.
      If RAC is gone Mike Zimmer is at the top of my wish list for new HC

        Ray Horton is at the top of mine. Great DC for the Cardinals, experience with the 3-4, and a hot coaching name out there right now. I know boe loves him too.

            Horton could certainly be an option, just keep in mind that his zone blitz is significantly different from Romeo's defense and may require more personnel changes than you'd think.

            Does anyone think the Chiefs would part ways with Steve Breaston after the season? His base salary of $3.8 million is only guaranteed for injury, and he has a $1.3 million roster bonus, according to Joel Thorman.

            • It wouldn't surprise me if we did, but only if Bowe stays. If Bowe takes off, which I think is a very real possibility, Breaston has added value.

              Of course, if Pioli and the rest of the coaching staff is fired, I wouldn't be surprised by anything.

              • It may make sense to blow everything up after the season because of the flexibility Kansas City will have to rebuild their team (Bowe, Albert, Dorsey set for FA, Cassel without guaranteed money remaining, potentially high draft pick.) According to my calculations, releasing these five players would save a little bit over $30 million, with just $3.22 million in dead money (Tyson Jackson):

                QB Matt Cassel
                Savings: $7.5 million base salary, $250,000 workout bonus
                Notes: As far as I can tell, none of Cassel’s remaining contract is guaranteed.

                WR Steve Breaston
                Savings: $3.8 million base salary, $1.3 million signing bonus, $200,000 workout bonus, $500,000 in incentives
                Notes: Has made just four catches on the season (nine targets.)

                TE Kevin Boss
                Savings: $2.4 million base salary, $1 million(?) workout bonus
                Notes: Season-ending concussion, relatively high cap figure.

                DE Tyson Jackson
                Savings: $14.72 million base salary ($3.22 million guaranteed), $250,000 workout bonus
                Notes: Must eat $3.22 million, still no way he gets that base salary.

                LB Andy Studebaker
                Savings: $1.48 million base salary, $500,000 workout bonus, $1 million incentives
                Notes: Has played just 32 snaps on the season.

                • That is a lot of great work that you put into that, so +rep for that. And I wouldn't be surprised at any of those guys being released.

                  I think it's a foregone conclusion that Dorsey is gone. I see no reason to re-sign him to any kind of deal. Ditto with Cassel, Boss (his career is likely over), Breaston or Studebaker. I think Tyson will stay if they restructure like they did for this year, but if he refuses he's as good as gone. There is no way they pay him $14m.

                  The biggest issue for me, right now, is the Albert/Bowe situation. I wonder if Albert re-signs during the season to stay here in KC. If he does, Bowe could be tagged again. If he doesn't, I think he'd get the tag over Bowe.

                  And another little tidbit, a bunch of "experts" around the KC area think Pioli and RAC could be gone as early as the bye week. That would make things really interesting going forward.

                  I'm hoping Albert signs here long term. I think Bowe is probably gone. The rest I can do without. Clean house, get rid of dead money, hire a new GM/coaching staff, and draft a QB (Geno Smith or Tyler Wilson). We'd be in much better position than we are now.

                    The difficulty with getting an Albert extension done this year is that Scott Pioli may not even have a job at this point; that may complicate the Hunt family's willingness to sign off on a Pioli-negotiated deal. I do agree that Albert is more likely to be re-signed than Bowe, or at least I'd be more willing to pay a left tackle than a wide receiver even if Breaston is cut.

                    • If they do not resign Albert and Bowe.... why even pretend you want to compete

                      Comment


                      • if i were Clark, i wouldn't be in any rush to sign any player during this season. with a lame duck HC and GM, every dollar saved helps the next guy get a leg up. the amount of flexibility the next GM will have is unheard of. millions and millions under the cap, no QB, no HC, no long term contracts acting as an albatross around their neck, a hungry fan base craving a winner and an owner, that from what we can tell, that leaves business decisions up to the people he pays to make them (hands off). he wont have to come in here and make waves. the pond is already clear for him.

                        • I would hate to lose both Albert and Bowe though. I guess we'll see. If Bowe walks we could go QB -> WR. That wouldn't be so bad.

                            Only one of those guys is a "bad" contract (Jackson), and they don't exactly need to cut good players to make cap room.

                            They just aren't using Breaston the right way. I don't see why they wouldn't want to keep him.

                              • Why keep someone to just stand on the sidelines??
