Kennard is bringing nothing, play Thomas.

Explain why Sanders doesn't at least suit up as he offers pass rushing. Maybe we know we will be playing from behind.

Allen and Lawrence have stepped up this year which is nice to see.

Ugh with Simmons.

I would rather play CBs vs WRs instead of LBs vs WRs. OK with Jace usage.

Agree with everything, but I would rather see Christian Matthew out there than "what-can-he-do-good" Jack Whittaker.

Agreed. Thomas has good edge setting potential, but I think we will ultimately move him to the DL.

Maybe when they sour on one of the other edge guys he'll get his chance.

Both have played pretty well. Lawrence has played better at NT than I thought he was capable of.
Ugh with Simmons.
He was the Chiefs scapegoat.

Agreed. One of the curious things about Vance's defense is how often you see really bad matchups like Chandler Jones on a WR.

Week 1 Vance makes Simmons a full time starter in an expanded roll and our defense becomes the worst in the league, with Simmons being the player the Chiefs picked on the entire game. Next week Vance benches Simmons and we look competent again (in the second half). Idk, I think maybe Vance has been right to bench Simmons so much in his career. Regardless I expect Simmons will be taking back the majority of snaps next week.
