I know there are a lot of questions about what went down over the weekend with the Chiefs and around the rest of the NFL.

Over the next 24 hours, give or take a few hours, I’ll be taking your questions about the move to 53. Just attach your question with this post and as I go through the next two days, I’ll try to answer as many of these questions as I can, as quickly as possible.

Let’s chatter about the Chiefs roster.

    Hey Bob, I see Moeaki’s injury as being a huge one for the Chiefs. Last year he exhibited athletic receiving skills and blocking skills that let us disguise our play calling a little bit more. My questions are: Do you think the Chiefs are going to utilize more 4 receiver sub packages, spreading the field a little more, and a shift in a run dominant (sometimes even on 3rd and 6 last year) philosophy to one similar to Indy and New England? If so, do you see the Matt Cassell having the decision making skills or accuracy to succeed especially given the offensive line being slightly questionable and with only two extra players for depth at 5 starting positions? Do you see O’Connell as being able to make an impact, I think we know what were getting in Becht and Pope (blocking and maybe a 4-9 yard catch every once in a while)?

    I also view Moeaki’s injury and IR placement as a massive blow. His catching ability seemed very similar to another Tony that we are more familiar with. I’d also like to know how you think this will impact the team’s playing style or if they will bring in a passing down TE from outside? Do you think they have someone in mind? Why release Slate if not?

    I’ve seen hardly anything from Colbert… did he really deserve a spot over Tucker?

    I’m also unsure about Sabby sticking around. What did he do for us in this off-season?

    Do you see any players cut from other teams that might help the chiefs as their were very few notables cut. What are the concern areas? I see OT, TE, BU QB, FS.

    Any plan to upgrade the QB position, either the starter or the backups or is it hope for the best from the Pioli/Haley strategy?

    1. Does Allen Bailey have the talent/skill set to unseat Tyson Jackson at LDE?

    2. What are Brandon Bair’s strengths? And besides his inexperience, what are his weaknesses?

    3. Who’s calling the plays?

    I re-watched the last preseason game on NFL network last night. (Green Bay TV is much better than CTV)

    The announcer said Haley calls the plays but Jim Zorn relays them to the QB. Is this true? Do you think this is a smart way to call in plays?

  • September 4, 2011  - Kenny Low says:

    The mental mistakes really hurt the Chiefs during the preseason and it seemed to be spread around with different players. How much patience will Todd Haley have with this group if he is putting so much of an emphasis on technique and eliminating mental mistakes. What else can he do to make this team more disciplined?

    After a timeout was called in the GB Game, Haley went nuts. Do you think he is going to have to exercise some emotional intelligence / restraint in order to get through to this young group?

    It has been painful the past few years where there were weeks in which we were just not even competitive. Is this team better than they were last year at this time and did we improved talent wise or stay pretty much the same?

    Bob, thanks for everything you do! I have a lot of questions for you.

    -What are your thoughts on Stanzi? Do you think he looks like he could be the QB of the future?
    -Is Studebaker an upgrade or downgrade over Vrabel?
    -What aspect of the team do you think will see the biggest change from last year? (run, pass, pass D, or run D)
    -How many wins do you think KC will get this year? Playoffs?
    -Have you found out anything on Lilja’s injury?
    -Do you think Gaither will overtake Richardson’s spot at RT during the season?
    -Who do you think has been the most impressive rookie?
    -What players do you see KC trying to bring in? Meriweather?

    Thanks again!!!

    Hey Bob thanks for doing these, always enjoy reading your answers.

    1. Any idea on the status of Baldwin? If he was to be placed on the PUP list would that have already happened?

    2. Do you really think that the Chiefs will only keep 7 O-lineman active, with one being a rookie and another having missed all of 2010 with a back injury?

    3. Something I have wondered for awhile. Are you a fan of the Chiefs or do you cover them with a totally unbiased opinion? If not do you have a favorite NFL team?

    Thanks again

    My surprises are:
    1) Lewis on the PS when he can play G and T. Plus he looked good in Pre-season.
    2) Keeping Copper when he can”t catch but Tucker can and play Specials as well.
    3) Bair kept.

    We need to find a pass catching TE to go with Pope and a back up Qb.

    Thanks for the forum, Bob.

    1. How healthy (physically and mentally) is Gaither? Does he start at RT immediately? Or eventually?

    2. What is your projection of the starting offensive line by mid-season?

    3. When will Baldwin supplant Urban as the starting #2 WR?

    4. Any additional roster moves this week? If so, what position(s)?

    5. Assuming a 7.5 over/under for wins this year, which side would you take (for entertainment purposes only, of course!)?

    I’ve always been curious about how players get paid in the various classifications such as IR or missed games due to injury, PUP etc etc
