    Heading into their first preseason game against the New Orleans Saints, here is how the current depth chart of the Chiefs stacks up as far as white starters go, so far only 6 total.

    Offense:
    Jeff Allen-LG
    Eric Fisher-RT
    Alex Smith-QB
    Anthony Fasano-TE
    Anthony Sherman-FB

    Defense:
    Mike DeVito-RDE

    Although the O-line has two sumos and a polysumo, most of the depth are creepy-ass crackas. Tight end is also a strong position with Travis Kelce being listed at number 2, while former starter Tony Moeaki has fallen out of favor. Good. The QB position has no quotabacks waiting in the wings, Chase Daniel is the backup while Tyler Bray and Ricky Stanzi battle it out for number 3. At WR, Tyler Shoemaker and Devon Wylie are on the chart, and have a fair chance of making the team if they play lights-out.

    Defense is a mostly coal-black affair, which is normal for Fat Bastard's teams. Frank Zombo, formerly from the Packers, backs up Justin Houston at LOLB, and then that's about it, aside from a few scattered 25th string honkys that will be let go at the first cutdown.

    Thanks for starting up the KC 2013 thread. "Your boys" will be tough to root for but they did bring in Alex Smith, Mike DeVito, Anthony Fasano and drafted some Whites. Travis Kelce looks like a pass catching stud. The duo of Fasano blocking and Kelce receiving should be very good. I also wanted to add 7th round pick out of Princeton, Mike Catapano. He was a defensive end in college but is athletic and is being used as an OLB now. He's got great potential and rotoworld has him listed as 4th for OLBers, which is not bad considering they run a 3-4. I'm interested to see if he can make some noise in preseason.

    I would like to see a race between Travis Kelce at 6'-6" 260 & Gronk!! Serious size/speed ratio! Check out Kelce's Game Winning 82 yard TD in last years Bowl game vs. Duke...the affletic secondary got torched! How you like that??

    *Hit it at 30 seconds; 56sec video...sorry forgot how to imbed the screen

    Sure would like to see Fresno State's Fastest Player ever(hand timed 4.26)Devon Wylie remain healthy and emerge as a big play threat!!

    RB-Jordan Roberts 5'-10" 222 (mentioned here on CF a while back) is on the roster...maybe he gets in the game in 4th quarter & bust a nice 25 yard run...keeping him around like Nate Euchus last season...BTW what happened to Nate Euchus??

    Good to see ole lunch-pail blue collar undrafted Mike DeVito remain a force in the NFL!

    A little off-topic but it's amazing what marvelous athletes Kelce, Eifert and Ertz are. Eifert and Ertz in particular are huge, fast wide receivers who are forced to play tight end.

    But -- for some reason we're to believe there are never any comparable White athletic marvels at wide receiver (or safety or cornerback or d-line or running back or as mobile quarterbacks). All White receivers are "overachievers" who at best have "deceptive speed," as Jon Gruden nauseatingly described Dane Sanzenbacher at one point last night. And Sanzenbacher is at best average or below average when compared to the many incredibly athletic White receivers who should have been playing in the NFL over the past 30 years but have been shut out or at best limited because of the league's fairy tale, racist propaganda that only blacks can play "speed" positions.

    Nate Eachus was waived and as far as I know has not been picked up by anybody.

    Eachus played out of position at fullback last year and did a credible job.

    Rather than give him a chance at his natural position, running back, the Chiefs waived him.

    If Eachus was black he wouldn't have been waived after a decent rookie season. It's another example of the racism of the NFL.

    There are a ton of white TE's who can run the 40 in the 4.5 range. Jeremy Shockey was one of the best athletes to ever play the tight end position. I think he underachieved. Greg Olsen is another guy who should be playing receiver.

    It will be interesting to see how well Alex Smith does in KC.

    The 49ers might have won the super bowl if they had stuck with Smith instead of switching to Kaepernick.

    Whether or not the Niners would have won with Smith should be a major topic of discussion in the media but it isn't. Kaepernick choked big time in the super bowl. That should be being discussed as well, but it isn't.

    The media is black supremacist so there is never any meaningful criticism of blacks no matter what they do, either on or off the field.

    Smith only played one series in the game against the Saints, and looked masterful directing the offense down the field for an easy touchdown. Unfortunately at this point, besides the TE position and Smith, there isn't much to watch when the Chefs starting offense is on the field. At least the Chiefs black RB, Jamaal Charles, is not a typical scrub black RB and is actually good and has earned his position.

    I disagree.

    Smith is too limited to be better than Kaepernick. He cannot stretch the field.

    Spoken like a true DWF raised on a daily diet of TMZSPN and MTV. This magical negro is never going to amount to anything in this league. Not only that but he seems like a truly unlikable person as well. He has a ****y, arrogant demeanor all while things are going good. Wait until things start going south that he has a Cam Newton like implosion. Smith WOULD have given them a better chance to win as he's not scatter armed and is better at reading defenses.

    yep, Kaepernick just flicks his wrist and the ball goes 80 yards down the field...except it hasn't. One passing play that went over 50 yards, and that wasn't how far it traveled in the air.

    Alex Smith has been able to stretch the field fine while in San Fran, a run oriented team with a few deep routes, his ypa was about the same as Kaepernick despite Kaepernick having the benefit of the read option with receivers being more wide open off of the play action fake. Smith was able to throw all of the routes fine, which is what people are really talking about when speaking of arm strength, the velocity on certain patterns. You can make up for lack of arm strength by anticipation/timing, and if you are poor in those areas then your arm strength is negated.

    Neither player really had to throw deep other than on seam routes, because Vernon Davis is the only guy on San Fran that can stretch the field, Crabtree is a slower possession receiver and isn't stretching the field.

    and before the lights went out, the 49ers were getting stomped in the Superbowl. Now he doesn't have a cannon like Joe Flacco but its above average.

    A wasted rookie season for Kelce. If he was a wideout his NFL career would most likely be finished (see for example Danny Coale), but as a tight end he should still be able to make a name for himself.


    Chiefs placed TE Travis Kelce on injured reserve with a right knee injury, ending his season. Kelce underwent microfracture knee surgery Tuesday after missing the first five weeks. He'll finish his rookie season without appearing in any games. A third-round pick, Kelce will compete for the starting tight end job in 2014.

    Anyone know if the Chiefs are indeed starting 6 whites this year? I have not seen them yet.

    No. Mike DeVito is the only cracka on defense, while they have Eric Fisher as the lone honky on the O-line. Then they have Anthony Fasano at TE and QB Alex Smith, of course. If they are running a formation with a fullback, then Anthony Sherman is the starter. So they really only start 4, 5 with Sherman. Frank Zombo comes in occasionally, but isn't starting. They're a tough team to root for, if it weren't for Alex Smith I would tune them out completely.

    Smith was a better QB than Kaepernick. Plus he had more experience.

    The Niners frequently found themselves behind in the playoffs due to Kaepernick's play. This wouldn't have happened if Smith had been the quarterback.

    Kaepernick choked in the Super Bowl. It's unlikely Smith would have choked the way Kaepernick did.

    Something that I've noticed the past few weeks is that Chad Hall is being given the "Ross Ventrone" treatment. For those of you who don't know, the Patriots would cut and resign Ventrone almost every week it seemed as they shuffled personnel. Chad was cut and resigned a couple of weeks ago in order for the Chiefs to bring in some generic black TE, and now has been cut (resigning is probably pending, I hope) in order to bring in a slow, fat, black DT. It's pathetic.

    The Chiefs started off very strongly this season then tapered off a little bit.

    I've noticed that teams that start off with big winning streaks often do well in the postseason. There's a good chance the Chiefs will do well in the playoffs.

    So Jovan Belcher, the Chiefs player who last year murdered his wife and then committed suicide in the Chiefs parking lot. Anyway, his mother is suing the Chiefs for wrongful death now. Of course his ghetto mother is pulling the concussion card even though Belcher never had any history of concussions. Even if there were evidence of him being concussed it would have all been destroyed when he put a bullet in his skull.

    Of course none of that stops his mother from trying to win the ghetto lottery.

    Can Chris Benoit's next of kin sue the WWE? They would certainly have a much stronger case than Jovan Belcher's mother.

    I like Alex Smith a lot. I think a lot of the criticism directed his way isn't truly warranted, and it may be the result of resentment over his intelligence and personality type. He's not just an athlete, but a brainy student athlete, and that compounds the problem of him not having the correct skin color. He has even been described as introspective. The establishment prefers white quarterbacks who can arrange primitive pre-game chimp-out rituals.

    I always hear the comments about Alex Smith "not having a cannon arm." Even if that were true, who cares? The "cannon arm" is just one part of the package, and can actually be a great liability with QBs who make bad decisions and who do not throw accurately. Oh wait, it looks like nearly all of Alex Smith's endearing QB traits go against the grain of the postmodern "model" QB. Let's not forget that Joe Montana was rated to have relatively weak arm strength as well. Heh, Montana would probably get benched for Kaepernick today, too.
