Pete Prisco On Lacy, Exactly What We All Have Been Saying

. The Chiefs got their passing game going against the Colts and the player they picked on was corner Jacob Lacey.Dwayne Bowe did a number on him, including beating him for an acrobatic touchdown catch. Lacey was lucky Matt Cassel missed another throw when Bowe ran a slant and go and was wide open. Lacey has to play better or teams will attack him all season long.

Did anyone see the 18 to 88 article defending Lacey? Did anybody hear Bethea say "that was my fault" during the SoundFx segment after one of those big plays?

"I expected to give Lacey an F for this game just based on my impressions at the game, but after looking at the tape, I think it was more of a B day against a guy who made some A+++ plays."

"Lacey's not a great corner by any means, but neither is he the train wreck that fans (myself very much included) thought he was."

Personally most of my perception of Lacey in the KC game came from the announcers endlessly calling his name on reception after reception. Now I'm not so sure that he was as bad as it seemed. Clearly there are problems at CB, but the implication that our all-pro back there didn't play like one is more disturbing.

Overall there is a reason each game he seems to be picked on & his name called by announcers

I know, he's not a starter, but he has played well at times in the past. I'm just clinging to hope here.

Well....let's see what happens Sunday against rookie QB Andy Dalton throwing to rookie WR A.J. Green

I hope he has a good game and keeps playing good, because the next several weeks bring people like Marques Colston and Roddy White his way.

Yikes

I never can understand why he ever guards the other teams best receiver, powered is a much better corner, and always should be playing the other guys best receiver.

I'm not trying to defend lacey but the scheme doesn't help him either, when you are told to constantly play 10 yards off of the receiver, you are being set up to fail.

I use to defend lacey but the fact that lacey gets beat on alot of plays shows up alot... now there are some mistakes where its just not his fault... i remember in the bucs game where he jammed a receiver to the inside where if conner had been in his right position he would have gotten a pick... but conner wasnt and the receiver got the ball for a completion making lacey look like the problem but it was actually conner.

    • There's a lot of questions on what this team will look like next year. A lot of people are returning, but some could be used in trades if we go after, say, Paul George)   Returning Depth Chart:(under contract) PG: Haliburton, McConnell  SG: Nembhard, Mathurin, Sheppard  SF: Nesmith, Brown PF: Walker C: Turner, Jackson     Free Agents: Pascal Siakam(most likely to stay, but cost a lot $40m+) ** Doug McDermott(would like back at 2yr $10m range) James Johnson(vet min) Jalen Smith (player) - might elect to see if he can get more than $5.4m on open market  Obi Toppin (restricted)- could be expensive to retain/ potential S+T possibilities  Oscar Tshiebwe (restricted)(vet min) Quenton Jackson (restricted)(vet min) Isaiah Wong (restricted)(vet min)         So here is where the problem lays. Indy is small market, I think there is almost no chance we will go into the tax. So here is how that is looking.   1st Apron Tax Cap Space:(including $5.4m PO for Smith) $64m   **Siakam - Siakam should start around $42.6 million and could be 5yrs, $247.1m or 4yrs, $190.8 million.(This was based off of $142m, think they are looking at $141m now so could lower a bit. Not much.   So Pascal will probably most likely cost around $42.6m next season     That brings our 1st Apron Space to: $21.4m   Toppin (RFA tender $8-$10m)(more than likely will receive an offer bigger than that) Tshiebwe, Wong + Jackson - $5.6m   Down to $5.8-$7.8m in 1st Apron Space: (2 open roster spots)   McDermott? - $5m? Johnson? - $2m?     Going to be interesting, and is fast approaching.     Trade Pieces: Siakam (S+T, if can't agree on contract?) Toppin(S+T) Smith (if he picks up PO) Nesmith We also have (3) 2nd round picks and future 1st.
    • With me, I look at average life expectancy at 80 years old. Once someone turns 80 the clock really ticks. My mom is 71 and she still gets around like a 50 yr old. Tough day after the news of Bill Walton. 
    • Daniel Scott is my sentimental pick. Mt deceased son's name was Scott with middle name of Daniel. So in memory of Scott Daniel my pick is Daniel Scott.
    • Yeah he was only 71 but I just heard he had cancer, I had no idea. This is a day ruiner. He was such a big name for the sport of basketball. I am having trouble believing this. 
    • Great player. I also loved his contributions whenever he was on the Mike & Mike Show. I was a big fan.   RIP   If anyone has the Athletic, they have a good article.   https://www.nytimes.com/athletic/5420854/2024/05/27/bill-walton-obituary?source=user-shared-article
