Do we make a play for Chris Jones?

KC scored on their last four drives and on five of their last six. Seems to me like Mahomes dialed it in before OT. And he did it with a far inferior supporting cast compared to what Purdy was working with. 

 

Yeah, Mahomes got them into field goal range several times, and benefitted from a turnover on a punt which put them in the red zone.

Both defenses yesterday put on a great show. They were the stars last night.

Sure the defenses were very good, but my points about the QBs and supporting casts stand. Mahomes got the job done with a far inferior supporting cast. If KC had a Purdy level QB, then I doubt they score double digits. If the 49ers had a Mahomes level QB along with Kittle, Debo, Aiyuk and CMC, then they win easily.

That's a lot of hypothetical.

 

I stand by what I saw. Both QB's had a difficult time because of two strong defenses last night.

No argument from me that there were two strong defenses. I’m just saying that the two QBs were working with very different qualities of supporting casts and the one with the far weaker one performed much better.

They have 23m in cap space without touching Pat's deal again and the ability to use the tag. I am pretty sure Jones will be a Chief in 2024. I think it is more likely they move on from Kelce than Jones.

Today is the day that I learned that Travis Kelce and Rob Gronkowski are the same age.

Hope he leaves the Chiefs .. but I’ll believe it when it happens 

 

 Same but I do think the chances are very high he's played his last game as a Chief because he's made it clear he wants to be the highest paid defensive player in NFL history and he's turning 30 in the offseason so this is his one and only big shot and grabbing the bag so to speak. And quite frankly he's not just another name, he has the resume and showed up big time this year and in the playoffs when it mattered most.

 

Chiefs would have to franchise him to stay which means Jones could just sit out and then do nothing when he finally is forced to play out the rest of the season so he can be an UFA again in 2025. I don't think he has any interest in making history with a 3peat and all that.

I think the Bears need someone to keep blockers off of Edmunds, and they have some space. Git 'er done Buddy!

Poor Mahomes with his All-World Tight End able to match up against backup for the second time in three games. 
 

Along with a good young WR in Rashee Rice … who is basically what Diggs regressed to last half of the season.

Aaron Donald would be a more realistic option. But that’s not happening either.

 

Oliver was borderline All-Pro for good stretches of the season. Hopefully DQ can be brought back.
 

maybe you get lucky and can draft the beast from Texas in Round 2

 

If not, DT in 3 or 4. Eli Ankou, a cheap vet. You’re fine there. I guess.

 

KC has a huge DT that was on their PS and played fairly well when given the chance. I’d try to get him.  Mike Pennel? I think is the name?
