  NFL Playoffs Thread
Posted by: NOLA - 01-09-2018, 10:33 AM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (83) the extent anyone still cares.  The AFC games this weekend are truly atrocious.  Rooting against the Pats and Steelers means I gotta root for a... a fucking Titans-Jags AFC Championship?  Really?

In the NFC, I have a team I'm keeping an eye on.

  *** Chiefs 2018 Offseason Thread ***
Posted by: Coach - 01-07-2018, 08:41 PM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (375)

The Chiefs have forward progressed their way to another playoff loss graveyard, which is nothing new these days.  That being said, it's the offseason for the Chiefs, which is the purpose of this thread, where news, rumblings, opinions/thoughts is being discussed.

Feel free to share your arm chair GM decision making here as well (please try to be realistic as possible). 

1. Give Sutton his walking papers and thank him for his service to the Chiefs, but it's time to move on to a different direction.  Start finding proven aggressive defensive coordinators, not a passive defensive coordinator.  Preferably one that doesn't have his guys playing 5-7 yards off the LOS about 90% of the time, and displays toughness, because this defense is soft.

2. Release the following players:
- Tamba Hali - $9,395,834 in 2018, dead cap of $1,708,334 if released, saving $7,687,500
- Derrick Johnson - $10,250,000, dead cap of $2,250,000 if released, saving $8,000,000
(I'm not opposed to resigning him, but it will have to be cheaper and a one year deal)
- Dee Ford - $8,718,000, dead cap of $0 if released, saving $8,718,000
- Frank Zombo - $1,276,668, dead cap of $166,668 if released, saving $1,110,000
- Phillip Gaines, his contract expires at the end of this season, so don't bother resigning him

3. Trade Alex Smith. If no takers, then release him in order to move forward progress (the future begins now with Pat Mahomes), and $20,600,000, dead cap of $3,600,000, saving $17,000,000

You just saved $42,515,500 of cap that you can easily absorb some cap increases due to Houston and Berry's contracts, and still be able to replace with younger and faster (hopefully smarter too) players.

4. Draft heavy on defense.  They need a lot of help, mainly the DL needs to be retooled as well as the OLB's and ILB (except for Ragland, Jones, and Houston).

All things Mahomes can go here. It’s going to be  a HUGE thread. Probably the best thread ever in the history of HOTC.

  vs. Titans, Playoffs Wild Card Round
Posted by: asskickingboots - 01-01-2018, 11:51 AM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (83)

The 10-6 AFC West Division Champion Chiefs host the 9-7 Tennessee Titans in Arrowhead at 3:25pm Saturday January 6th.  Home playoffs in the frigid weather. Love it!

Just so you know what we're up against.

(EDIT: Video was removed from YouTube. It was Mariota hilariously running into his RB face to face as the ball goes flying up into the air past them as the Jags scoop and score).

That was somehow part of a winning effort for the Titans against the playoff bound Jags (don't think they were resting any players either).

Now, here's where I mention that means the Titans D held the Jags O to 3 points in 12 drives. Statistically the Titans rank 17th in points defensively, 13th in yards, very average. So maybe it's just a case of facing the right team at the right time (Jags offense is not good), or maybe they're hitting their stride at the right time.

Offensively, the Titans are challenged. 19th ranked in points, 23rd in yards. Better at running than passing, but not really good at either. Titans don't take care of the ball and are -4 in turnover margin compared to KC at +15, second best in the league.

It's pretty weird to say this, or rather it would have been 6 months ago or even 1 month ago, but if this becomes a track meet I have a hard time seeing the Titans keep up with KC's offense. The defense will eventually force a stop or takeaway.

We took care of the playoff losing streak a couple years ago. Now, it's time to take care of a home playoff win. If the Chiefs play their A game, they can beat anybody.

Coaching / GM Carousel News


Raiders HC Jack Del Rio
Colts HC Chuck Pagano
Lions HC Jim Caldwell
Bears HC John Fox
Giants HC Ben Macadoo
Giants GM Jerry Reese

Giants GM Dave Gettleman

Also worth mentioning, Hue Jackson is safe despite literally giving the Browns the worst stretch in their less than storied franchise's history. This makes Dorsey less likely to raid our coaching staff, so good news probably.

Two Chiefs assistants that will be looked at for jobs are OC Matt Nagy and STC Dave Toub, especially with some GMs out there with Chiefs connections, namely Chris Ballard for the Colts first and foremost.

  Del Rio out, Gruden in?
Posted by: tyecopeland - 01-01-2018, 08:14 AM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (29)

Reports are than gruden will coaching the raiders next year with an ownership stake. How do you guys feel about that? I like gruden but I don't think he's as an amazing coach as he seems to get credit for being.

  Game 16: Chiefs at Donkeys

The big question: how many starters will play?

Will we see Patrick Mahomes?

I still want to win this game - it would just be super-cool if we won with backups and third stringers.

I have been listening to satellite radio all day so far.  Cant believe what Im hearing.    I know there is alot of talk from Chiefs fans about Mahomes.  But Im hearing non Chiefs fans several times today about the QB options for Denver and every one of them brought up the possibility of Alex Smith.   I mean Ive heard the Manning talk for awhile but this just hit me.  That could be very bad.  Very very bad
