As a Chiefs fan let me interject some thoughts from a Kansas CIty perspective.

- If this goes through, then no matter what the ramifications, I will be impressed by the KC brass for being aggressive and doing so very early.

- I am of the opinion that Our secondary (If we re-sign Jerome Woods), is fine....would I like an upgrade @ CB? Yes, but its not the biggest problem by any means IMHO

-I think KC has some players in the front seven, specifically the D-Line, but Greg Robinson wasnt utilizing them. I think Cunningham will do wonders for our D-Line, but I will admit that we need MAJOR help @ LB, Maslowski is a nice backup...and I think Barber will be better suited playing alongside a good inside backer instead of being the focal point.

-That being said, I wouldnt do the champ thing....man I would love to have him but we have bigger needs....our CBs get teh job done, and the best coverage is a good pass rush.

- I think KC needs to do the Burress trade. If we are looking to upgrade @ WR I see him as better than anyone we would get @ #30 in Round 1, (someone like Rashaun Woods or Lee Evans). Yeah, he drops some passes, but so does Johnie Morton (See playoff loss to Indy). That being all the same, Plax is bigger faster, stronger, and not to mention younger

-After doing that deal, trade Morton for like a third, and maybe some MLB help....I would rather have Kennison as a #2 WR than Morton, for many reasons.

- I would make a run, money permitting, for the top UFA MLB out thjere, I am thinking Al Wilson, but Denver may franchise him.

That is a mouthful, but thats a KC fan perspective.

LB are the primary need of KC i agree. they NEED to stop the rush as a MAJOR priority. LBs are a key to this. I say this because pittsburgh is constantly a strong rush d and mainly because they have the best LB core in the nation with gildon/farrior/porter/bell. their d-line isnt overally talented besides hampton. bailey will improve the defense, but isnt what they need to make a major change.

I think the big stumbling block with Bailey is that even if you trade for him, you still have to sign for him. He wants an awful lot of cash for a CB. I wonder if the Skins are trying to roll the dice hoping that they can get a pick for a player they have no intention of keeping.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Chiefs do NOT need a strong receiver yet...their offense was good enough last year! We all know that defense is terrible...if they get a WR, get one cheap that has the potential of becoming a good player...for now, get as much help as you can on D Where it's needed
