Two Tribes Talking Trade?

Postby Canacuna » Sat Feb 14, 2004 5:53 pm

From this rumor, it looks like the Chiefs are interested in trading for Champ Bailey...

Pro Football Talk Rumor Mill

Break out the peace pipe and the pemmican -- the Chiefs and the Redskins could be coming together to strike a major trade for a pretty potent papoose.

As ESPN.com first reported on Friday, Redskins cornerback Champ "Runs Like Deer With Runs" Bailey's image is atop the trading totem pole.

And we're hearing the Chiefs coach Dick "No Can Defense" Vermeil and G.M. Carl "Small Man Big Mouth" Peterson are working hard on striking a deal with Redskins owner Dan "Chief Too Little To Wear Headdress" Snyder for the rights to Bailey, who's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

It's possible that a deal could be announced as soon as Saturday, as the Chiefs pounce on the opportunity to beef up a porous defense that drew disses even more Commissioner Paul Tagliabue at his annual state of the league address two weeks ago.

If the deal goes through, our guess is that the Chiefs will use, at a minimum, the first-round pick that they previously were willing (as we've been told) to ship to the Steelers in return for receiver Plaxico "Too Tall for Teepee" Burress.

And what the Chiefs have to ask themselves in the end is whether they want to burn up that first-round pick and much more for the ability to stick a finger in a crumbling dam of a defense, or whether they want to give up a lot less to get a guy who can help their offense get to the level that Vermeil enjoyed in St. Louis.

Sure, they've got bigger problems on defense. But with all of those dropped passes in that fateful home playoff loss to the Colts, we'd be far more interested in getting a fast, big, reliable receiver than in getting a guy who can't make the other 10 guys around him any better.

Cheifs sure could use some help on the defensive side of the ball......this would be a very good move for them

They seemed to do fine this year offensively without having a good WR

If the Chiefs get a good WR, a TD and third down guy, Priest Holmes and Tony Gonzalez value would go down significantly.

Getting Champ Bailey would improve fantasy value of Kansas City defense.

I dont think the deal will go thru. Kansas City have a late first round pick. Synder will go for it is an early first round pick for Bailey.

Though i doubt this deal will work out...this would be the right step in addressing the defensive issues. who cares about a #1 offense when "a defense wins championships". this has been proven with NE and CAR and has proven true that without a defense, the chiefs are goin nowhere. they need to address the defense badly. forget the offense for a minute and improve this bad defense!

As bad as the Chiefs D was this year, Jerome Woods made the Pro Bowl from the safety spot and Warfield and McLeon were pretty good at the corner spots. They led the league in turnover difference so they had to be doing something right. The real prblem for the Chiefs is their run D. Put Plax on the Chiefs and that is one of the best offences in a LONG time. You'd have a Pro Bowl QB, Pro Bowl RB, Pro Bowl TE, and a WR with all the talent in the world to combine with the best offensive line in the league. That would be damn near unstoppable.

and most said they had an unstoppable offense last year...sure if it was a REALLY good WR id say do it! but plax drops balls like no other. plus, champ is a leader and that would help the defense. and if you dont need a CB then why get champ? focus somewhere else. But at any rate, they should NOT waste their pick on a mediocre WR. an offense cant win without a defense, and right now they are in major need of a defense.

champ is not a leader. hes a great player, but hes hardly an outspoken, rally the troops type of guy. id still love to keep him around, but just being good doesnt necessarily make u a leader.
