This rookie class may prove to be a very, very good one.


Jared Allen is developing into a fine DE
Sammie Parker shows tremendous speed AND hands
Kris Wilson has shown the talent to be a playmaker (in practice)
Siavii has shown promise as well

Don't forget my man Tynes.

You know I keep waiting for Wilson to show something. He has played sparingly the last 2 weeks but I don't think Trent has even looked at him.

Also maybe even Benny Sapp

Don't forget Parker by the way. He was clutch as well.

Allen is looking great, and I've been quite impressed with Parker these past couple of games.

I haven't seen a lot out of Siavii yet, but we all knew he was green coming in.

As for Wilson, I'm not ready to toss out superlatives yet since he's missed the entire year.

Fox has made a few good special teams plays, and hopefully Sampson will continue a good showing next year.

What about that Scanton guy. He's a keeper, right? I heard he was awesome on the internet.

I saw Wilson in there a couple times. I think perhaps he was key in getting Gonzo free.

These guys are our future nucleus, and it looks good. :thumb: This might end up being CP's greatest draft yet. Quite an irony, when you consider how he screwed our FA chances in the same year.

the appealing thing about Parker is that unlike Morton he hangs on to the ball

So does Morton. Parker has top end speed and quickness though.

Have to agree with the goat, drops have not been so glaring for Morton this year. The fact that he cannot get open is a definite weakness.
Allen will only get better, and won't have to look over at his shoulder for Vonnie Holliday. Aside from sucking, Holliday has a huge bonus next year he will never see.

Aside from needing a CB(maybe 2), a MLB(maybe an ILB or OLB), we need another DE opposite of Allen to close the noose on QB and smash him. I'm ready for a return of outstanding defensive play at Arrowhead...creating the kind of crowd noise that makes the place shake.

We need a solid CB,OLB,DE in that order.MLB is fine.Barber sucks and I havn't see any one good enough to take his spot.

Parker looked good hanging on to the ball. Fearless....
unlike Morton who would have dropped at least one of those.

Allen, Good sack needs one more to tie Derrick Thomas.

Sapp played well at times.
Savaii improving....

considering the score...Tynes redemeded himself and saved the game at the end off Dantes run back

Vets....
Gonzo
Kennison stepped up (we will take the bad call on the fumble, we have been screwed many times in the past).

Johnson is human and showed it but had a decent game. Priest would have done better when healthy.

Johnson struggled today, but still moved the ball. Honestly, he is a very viable backup to Holmes because the offense is still dangerous with him in the game. In fact, Johnson brings some things to the table that Priest does not, and has earned a much larger role next season.

I was VERY impressed with Parker. He showed very good hands, something we SORELY need on offense.

I am not sold on Mitchell at MLB, though he is improving. He is NOT an instinctive player in the least. I would not trust him to become a viable MLB next season and still believe we need to bring in a reliable veteran.

Also, did you notice that Jordan Black is playing very well at RT? I think he's doing a better job of pass blocking than John Welbourne. While missing 3 starters, KC's offense hasn't missed a beat. This development bodes very well for the future. Now we have impressive depth on the offensive side of the ball.

Johnson and Black are making the 03 draft class look MUCH better.
