Chat Wrap: The Jon Baldwin plan
By Bill Williamson
The following is some highlights from our AFC West chat, which was held earlier Thursday:
S from Denver: If the Broncos miss out on Luck, who do you think they would take?
BW: I could see them looking at Oklahoma's Landry Jones or USC's Matt Barkley, probably in that order. I think quarterback is the first place Denver looks in the draft next year.
Jonathan, Chicago, Il.: Do you think (Jonathan) Baldwin will be incorporated more into the Chiefs' offense especially after the bye? Also, do you think it would be wise for the Chiefs to sign T.O. to take some pressure off (Dwayne) Bowe?
BW: Yeah, probably after the bye. They want to get him in this week. But he is behind so it will take some time. But the bye week will be great for him to catch up.
AJ from Oakland: Hi Bill, Don't you think the Raider's reason for leading the league in penalties every year starts at the top with Mr. Davis. On numerous occasions he has made it clear that he feels the NFL has it in for his team. Players then aren't careful in games because they figure as Raiders their going to get screwed over with penalties against them no matter what.
BW: I'm not sure about that. But the truth is, the Raiders have been one of the most penalized teams for years. Hue Jackson is tired of it and he wants it to stop and it needs to stop now.
Nathan from SD: The Chargers game was blacked out last Sunday for the 1st time in a while. Do you see this trend continuing, and what does this mean for the future of the Chargers in SD?
BW: They dealt with it last year once or twice. If they keep winning, it shouldn't be a problem. Their next two home games are against Green Bay and Oakland. Sellouts shouldn't be an issue.
