I'm not hoping he gets hurt. I bear him zero ill will.

Besides, I don't have to hope he gets hurt. He can handle that all by himself, he's made a career out of it.

Because last year is the only one that counts.

We get it, you're an Auburn fan. Either that, or Dee Ford is a family member.

He's gone, get over it. The Chiefs aren't going to miss a beat without him.

That said, one play is not the reason he was traded. He was traded because the risks of giving him a big contract outweighed the potential reward. Building a better defense for the Mahomes era begins now. And it means having a more balanced and more versatile defense full of consistent performers. Ford was a one-dimensional pass rusher and a liability in the run game. He was inconsistent, injury-prone, and had a low football IQ as evidenced by never learning to line up correctly.

I liked Ford and always wanted him to prove the naysayers wrong. And he may do just that in SF. But based on his track record there was no way the team could throw big money at him. The odds of it turning into another albatross of a contract were too good.
I heard he agreed to San Francisco deal because he realized Frank Gore was no longer there. Frank is two ford what war paint was to Berry

If BOTH Seth from the Athletic and Matt from AHP are giving this guy ringing endorsements then it's a good signing. Rest of you can suck a dick.

I love the lurker GMs that come out to tell us all how shitty the moves the team is making are.Every off-season there are a handful of mults and lurkers who just know everything.

That's good because they aren't trying to make him a replacement. They're going to replace Ford with several players.

You should probably align your expectations with reality.

As usual youíre statistics you make up are wrong. He had a sack in week 10. He played 20 combined snaps over the 3 weeks after that. So really your opinion is focused on a 4 week stretch here, all elite pass rush go on 3-4 week stretches without sacks, lmao at trying to use that as a point.

You have some weird blind hate for the guy like he fkd your mom or something lmao. You actually are making up incorrect statistics in your head just to try to support your disdain for him.

EXACTLY.

The Pats load up on mid-range contract guys.

I prefer that approach to stars and scrubs.

Oh that's right, zero.
While that's not entirely true (We're paying Watkins $18MM, and Mathieu $14MM)... NO SHIT... they don't play the same position...


... and $16MM is a bargain... for his position...

I was off by 1 week. :-)

Thanks for the nitpick, it sure makes a BIG difference.

And no, I don't hate the guy at all. It appears it is you who are blind. Because you haven't actually read a word I've said.

I would have taken Dee Ford back. I even would have entertained giving him a long-term contract for the right price.

I was NOT in favor of playing Dee Ford for 1 year on a $16M guaranteed salary with his history of injuries. His on-again/off-again career is not worth that kind of risk. That's all it is for me. That's all it EVER was for me.
