General manager John Dorsey (left) and the Chiefs have been busy adding players I have to admit I get a little frustrated at this time of year. Not because GM Ted Thompson refuses to pay average players like superstars, but because he refuses to pay anyone. I keep waiting for him to add another Ryan Pickett to the roster, but it hasn’t happened in the past seven years and it’s probably not going to happen now. But you know what frustrates me even more? All the pinheads in the media who start labeling certain GMs geniuses because of moves made before the calendar even flips to April. A perfect case in point is our old friend in Kansas City. “Nice debut performance by John Dorsey,” wrote the National Football Post’s Dan Pompei. Look, I like Dorsey, but what exactly has he done so far that deserves accolades? He spent over $150 million to keep Brandon Albert, Dwayne Bowe and Darren Colquitt and bring in Dunta Robinson, Anthony Fasano, Mike DeVito, Donnie Avery, Chase Daniel and Sean Smith. And, oh yeah, he traded away a pair of second-round picks to acquire Alex Smith. Besides the fact that I see nary a stud among that group of players, let’s be honest, anyone willing to give away high picks and hundreds of million of dollars could’ve accomplished the same thing. Start praising Dorsey and others like him when they find their own Greg Jenningses, Randall Cobbs, James Joneses, Jermichael Finleys, Jordy Nelsons, Josh Sittons, T.J. Langs, Desmond Bishops, Casey Haywards in the draft and when they find their own Tramon Williamses, Evan Dietrich-Smiths, John Kuhns, Erik Waldens, Sam Shieldses and Tim Masthays on the street. That’s what makes a GM worthy of praise. More importantly, that’s what allows a team to win on a consistent basis. There are no winners and losers in March. Well, that’s not true. There are losers, and they are the dopes in the media who need to grade teams before St. Patty’s Day. If Super Bowls were won at this time of the year, we would’ve been watching parades in Washington, Philadelphia and Buffalo in recent years. Instead, we saw celebrations in Green Bay, New York City and Baltimore. And something tells me fans in Kansas City, Miami, Cleveland, Chicago and even Seattle won’t be needing confetti next February.
