Kansas City Chiefs: Upcoming 2018 – 2019 Season Predictions and Expectations

 

Offense

It is a calculated risk for Patrick Mahomes to take over the reins for the Kansas City Chiefs. He is perhaps the most physically talented passer for head coach Andy Reid. Many are excited to see how Reid’s offense will evolve in order to fit the style of play of Mahomes, which includes a lot of deep shots.

Mahomes had an appearance as the starter during last year’s regular season finale and he made some interesting throws that a lot of other quarterbacks simply cannot. Clearly, he is one of the best talents, but the question is: can he also handle the game at the top level and minimize turnovers?

Mahomes will have help, of course. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill is considered as one of the quickest players in the NFL, so he is apparently an ideal target for the big right arm of Mahomes. Although Hill is not yet an accomplished route runner, he can have the opportunity to run under many deep balls.

Hill will be paired with Sammy Watkins, who was signed by the Chiefs in free agency. If Watkins stays healthy, he can make the passing game frightening for the defenses of their opponents.

Travis Kelce is one of the best of tight ends in the league, which gives the Chiefs new starting quarterback another almost unstoppable weapon. While the loss of Albert Wilson weakens the depth at receiver, Demarcus Robinson and Chris Conley, who showed great chemistry with Mahomes in the 2017 preseason, are available as great reserve options.

 

Defense

The Kansas City Chiefs cannot consistently pressure the quarterbacks of the opposing team and they are slashed on runs inside the tackles. Because of this, the local media and Chiefs fans asked for Bob Sutton to be replaced as the defensive coordinator.

Instead, Sutton is staying and Peters was removed from the team, which made the fans furious. Peters had varying games, but he was also productive as he had 19 interceptions (NFL best) in his first three seasons. This move was part of the major revamp, which seems to be a sign of the team changing back to an aggressive press-man approach.

Three cornerbacks also left via free agency - Terrance Mitchell, Phillip Gaines, and Kenneth Acker. Eric Berry, returning from his injury, is among the league’s best strong safety when healthy. Armani Watts is also a challenger as a free safety starter.

 

Conclusion

The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off from consecutive AFC West championships for the first time in the team’s franchise history, so they are in contention to win the division. However, the rest of the teams in the division are also looking stronger.

 

Mahomes is expected to protect the ball, manage the offense, and make good decisions. On paper, the Raiders, Broncos, and Chargers all improved extensively. With a retooled defense and a first-year at QB, the Chiefs are dealing with a lot of questions entering the upcoming 2018 season. The team is still hopeful, but Mahomes will go a long way to meet the hype.

 

 

Kansas City Chiefs 2017 - 2018

When you dig the Chiefs team depth and coaching consistency it is obvious that they are maximum 3 player away from a possible Super Bowl. Last seasons high spendings created salary cap issues for Chiefs in 2017 - 2018 season. All they can get for the new season is defensive tackle Bennie Logan and they were pretty silent during the free agency period.  Considering their super difficult schedule Kansas City Chiefs fans should lower their expectations for the new season.
