Aah, home again. Man, sorry about that.
How does the KC secondary stack up against the other secondary in the AFC West?
I think it is the best secodnary in the division going into the season. No doubt.
Do you think there's a good chance that Woodson signs with Denver?
I think so, but there are a lot of moving parts. Other teams are invovled, but Dnever may be the favorite.
Do you feel that the Charger offensive players still believe in Rivers? Does he still have command of the team or is there any dissension on the team privately about him?
Not that I know of. They know what the offensive line has been like the past two years. He's really well respected in that locker room.
Raiders secondary vs. Raiders receivers....who will have the bigger impact this season?
I think they are both young groups with potential. Secondary might be a little further along.
Is it possible for D. Thomas, W. Welker and E. Decker to all get 1000 yards this season?
It might be possible. They are all capable. It would eb pretty wild, wouldn't it.
Do you think the Chiefs will end up signing Brandon Albert to an extension? If so how long does he stay at left tackle?
It is possible. It is something both sides are interested in.
Do you think Latavius Murray will see some action on the field this season for the Raiders?
He has to make the team first. He's a sixth-rounder so nothing is for certain. But I do like his skill set. I think he can do some nice things as both a runner and a receiver. I think he may have a future.
Any chance Freeney gets signed for longer than 1 year as a rotational guy?
I would think it would be a one-year deal. If not, I bet their would be some protections for the team.
How will Andy Reid use Jamaal Charles in his new offense? I felt like the Chiefs were missing the boat by not running screen plays with Charles over the last several years.
Reid bragged to me about Charles' hands out of the backfield. He will be used as a receiver no doubt.
Does Manti Te'o make a huge impact on the Chargers' defense in Year 1?
He will start. It's up to him how big of an imapct he will make, but he wil be given the chance.
So looking at Freeny what are the odds that the Chargers end up signing him today. I know that for the Chargers to sign him they will need to change the D scheme to make it work. Let's get done but not spend all the money.
It all comesdown to money. That's the entire deal here.
How does the KC linebackers stack up against the other AFC West linebacking corps?
Pretty well. I think its the best overall group, especially if Nico Johnson athces on quickly.
Can Dwayne Bowe be a top 10 wide receiver this season with much improved play at QB?
Sure, he ahs that ability. He's highly skilled.
And who do you think will really be calling the plays offensively for Oakland? The reason I ask is because you've got both Olsen as OC AND Sporano as 'Assistant Head Coach' / OL coach. Seems like a headbutting situation.
It will be Olson. Sparano will focus on the O-line. Don't get too caught up in that "assistnat head coach" title.
What is the Chiefs' most intriguing postion battle?
Probbaly Nico Johnson and Akeem Jordan at ILB.
Are the Chiefs going to push the Broncos or is it going to take another year for the rest of the West to catch up to Denver
Have to see how quickly Smith adjusts. I think the gap will be smaller, but Denver is still the team to beat.
Do you get the feeling Mike McCoy was a good hire for the Chargers? He just seems to remind me a little of Norval! Is there something there that a fan just can't see yet?
He is four months from coaching his first game. Let's wait on the comparisions a tad.
With Welker does that leave Denver with the best receiving Core in the league?
I think so. Pretty deadly group.
Why is the Chargers secondary getting so much flak this year for being possibly the worst in the league.? Weddle is the best FS in the game, Ghilcrest had success at SS at Clemson, Cox is an upgrade over Jammer & Cason and Shareece Wright has looked good when he's been on the field (i think he had 2 ints last years pre season), what are your thoughts.?
We have to see wgat Gilchrist and Wright can do.
Do you believe that Demarius Thomas can be as special as I do meaning top 3 wr in nfl?
If he keeps developing yes. He has special skills. Playing with Manning doesn't hurt him, either.
whats the bigger position needs to step up, wr or dline?
The Chiefs' back eight is storng. If the front three can start the push, it could be a fine defense.
If you're Elway and can only sign one veteran: do you sign Woodson to bolster the secondary or Urlacher to lead the LB core? (Assume the contact is 1yr-$2m)
Woodson. His position makes more of an impact in that defense and he has more left in the tank than Urlacher.
Bill, are there any quality free agent DEs left out there that the Raiders could target before camp?
A few guys, not much out there.
Sorry for all the issues. Again, way beyond my pay grade. But we make it work. Talk to you soon.
