I wonder if we could see our linebackers shake out this way:

LOLB Johnson, Fujita
MLB Grigsby, Mitchell/Maslowski
ROLB Bell, Fox/Caver/Mitchell

PUP: Barber

I like what I have seen so far, although starting two rookie linbackers leaves a little to be desired. However if Bell can lead them from the right side and the other veteran leadership on the D protecting them (Knight, Surtain, Hicks, Wesley, Dalton) it may work out :shrug:

Mitchell is going to get first crack at winning or losing the job at MLB.

He has sucked, but if the lights come on and he starts to get it, he has the potential to be an outstanding LB.

I like boomer and think he'll make the team and that he might even start in a year or so.... but lets cool it. Do you think we are seriously a super bowl team with TWO rookie LBs on opening Sunday?

I am not trying to be an ass.. this is just mind numbing. What? You watched the freakin' practice footage of the rookie camp and now this kid from, ahem, a Divion I-AA school is your odds on favorite to be the starting middle linebacker? Fred Jones has played more football in the NFL than Boomer. Infamous Rich Scanlon has played more football in the NFL than Boomer. I am all for dreaming, but this is sorta silly, no? It is Mitchell's job to lose from this side of the world.

Mr. Kotter

Our starting LB for the opening game will be some combination of:

Bell, Mitchell, Johnson, and Fujita.

Probably,
ROLB - Johnson
MLB - Mitchell
LOLB - Bell
(Fujita may hold off Johnson, but not for long...)

Boomer MAY eventually see some time, and he will likely backup Mitchell in the middle--UNLESS Gun moves Bell to MLB, and puts Fujita opposite Johnson--my own preference at this point.

I think
ROLB -Johnson
MLB - Bell
OLB - Fujita
w/Mitchell, Fox, Barber, Boomer, and Caver in reserve would be a formidable group.

Bank on it.

If Mitchell does start to play to his potential, he will be better.

Mitchell has playmaker potential.

When it's all said and done, I believe Bell will be playing MLB. Gun said he's never played MLB in a 3-4, but he has played ILB in a 3-4. Bell fills a bigger need for us at MLB than he does at OLB.

Our best 3 LB's are Fujita, Bell and DJ. Pick 3 spots for them, and let them play.

If Mitchell ends up starting at MLB, I will have lost all faith in the coaching staff. Although I won't have to worry about that too much because he'll probably get hurt in TC anyway.

If Grigsby starts one game this season, it means we've lost a lot of players due to injury.

Mitchell has playmaker potential? Are you kidding me? If you consider taking on a lead blocker and getting pounded into the dirt play after play a playmaker...Then I would agree. Kawika Mitchell just doesn't have the brains to play MLB. If Mitchell starts at MLB again this season, our run D will be nearly as poor as last season just because of him. He flat out doesn't translate to the NFL.

They can say whatever they want about whomever they want right now, it's early May. But, how can you not line up opening day with Fujita and Johnson at the outside backer, and Bell inside (barring injury)? I just don't see how Mitchell breaks this starting lineup, unless he moves outside and takes Fujita's spot.

And if I hear the "Well, he's a rookie and can't start the first game of the season" line, I swear I'm going to crap in a bag, set it outside the Arrowhead offices, and burn it.

I like Fujita. But if it really does come down to a battle between SF and Johnson, Fujita will lose in the end. He's played well, but he isn't a first round pick, and he just doesn't have the same amount of talent.

'course this discussion is pretty moot until August. And the way our offseasons seem to go, the biggest trick may be finding three healthy linebackers to start.

In the end, I don't care who they play, as long as the jobs are earned. If a month of camps makes them think their best starting trio is Bell, Johnson and Mitchell, then great. If it's Bell, Fox and Fujita, then great. Names don't matter as much as performance and the guys who give us the best chance of winning are the ones who should be on the field. And we don't know, can't know, who that is right now.

Mitchell couldn't even beat out Monty Beisel in last seasons TC (or stay healthy enough to do so either).

Bell will be the full time starter at MLB. I'm willing to put some bets on it. I just don't see Scott Fujita riding the pine this season behind Kawika Mitchell.

Between DJ and Fuji I don't think there's any contest. The thing with DJ is he'll allow Gun to go through his playbook like Al Saunders does his. DJ can play run, play pass and rush the passer. I think Gun will be able to disguise what we're gonna do on any given play because of DJs versatility.

If Gun wants Bell to be his ROLB, I'd rather see Bell concentrate on learning that position. Trying to learn 2 new positions before the end of training camp is a lot to ask.

I'd also question whether Grigsby will be a MLB in Gun's scheme. Like Bell, his play seems a lot like Anthony Davis'.

GRIGSBY IS NOT FROM A DII SCHOOL!!!!

He's from NCAA Division 1-AA. That's just below Division 1A. The same division as Jared Allen, Randy Moss, Chad Pennington, etc.

Dane

Um, Randy Moss and Chad Pennington played at Marshall. They're a D1 school and play in the MAC.

I like Fujita. But if it really does come down to a battle between SF and Johnson, Fujita will lose in the end. He's played well, but he isn't a first round pick, and he just doesn't have the same amount of talent.

'course this discussion is pretty moot until August. And the way our offseasons seem to go, the biggest trick may be finding three healthy linebackers to start.

In the end, I don't care who they play, as long as the jobs are earned. If a month of camps makes them think their best starting trio is Bell, Johnson and Mitchell, then great. If it's Bell, Fox and Fujita, then great. Names don't matter as much as performance and the guys who give us the best chance of winning are the ones who should be on the field. And we don't know, can't know, who that is right now.

No it's been established that Mitchell sucks and he can no way be able to win the MLB job. If he does then Gun doesn't know what he's doing anymore. If that happens we should all lose faith in Gun cause Mitchell sucks. :) Talk about a rush to judgement :)

All this Grigsby talk is retarded, Scanlon is clearly the greatest LB on the roster.

You know, all this arguing about who is the best LB's on our team are reminds me of the great RB debates that took place before Holmes put an end to all of them. Heck, even Holmes was part of the debate. Many thought he was only a third down back.

I'm just hoping that DJ and Bell turn out to be studs, no matter what spot they play, and that it won't matter all that much who wins the other starting spot.

What ever happened to Frank Moreau anyway? Is he in the HOF yet?

If Mitchell ends up starting at MLB, I will have lost all faith in the coaching staff.

Man, I just thought you said the other day that you were convinced "The best three LB's will be starting".

Now your are saying if Mitchell starts, the best three won't?


So just who is in charge of figuring out who the best three LB's on the Chiefs are? Gun or TRR? :hmmm:

I would say that the talk of Boomer starting the season is absurd, the Scotty Fu is an average LBer that should start this year and work well with his supporting cast, and that Mitchell had plenty of opportunities blown with over persuing the play, getting run over, and looking confused.

But after Coogs post, I remeber saying that Holmes was a third down back and the T Rich was our RBOTF, that Green would never be able to come back from that injury and play t 100%, and that Snoop Minnis was a much better kick returner that Dante Hall, so WTF do I know.

I wonder why Mitchell looked confused. I mean, he has only been forced to learn 2 completely different pro defensive schemes in his first 2 years in the pros. What an idiot, the guy obviously is a moron and has no potential at the pro level. :rolleyes:

I am going to laughing my ass off when Bell, Mitchell, and DJ are the starting LBs this season.
