Oh c'mon now, you hate him even worse than Bartee?


I'm not excited about Mitchell, but we have to remember that Philly tried to use him as a #1 WR. He might not be so bad as a #2 or slot guy. I am willing to wait and see.

why ... it's a 1 year deal for the minimum


if he gets mouthy or plays like crap, we cut him at any time



no lose situation as long as the coaching staff gives the best players the most reps.

This is the worst receiver signing since Kennison in mid-2001.

I agree...Mitchell can only go one direction after least season, and that's striaght up.

Kennison had at least been productive at least one season earlier in his career.

I bet they've been saying that in Philly for like the last 3 seasons, and they were, of course, wrong.

How is spending peanuts on a player qualify as being one of the worse signings? He gives us depth. Boerigter isn't even running routes, yet. As I see it we need another WR.

If Boerigter isn't ready, Mitchell has a strong chance of making the team, IMO.

I was being sarcastic about the Kennison thing. Sorry. I know it's hard to read that on here. I agree 100%. I think it's a no-lose signing, and I hope he makes the roster and has a productive year.

If we did sign him for 1 year at the league minimum, then no big deal. If he doesn't work out, he's gone and no great lose. Kind of similar to Denver with Jerry Rice. I don't expect much but he could be a pleasant surprise.

Tuckdaddy
06-18-2005, 05:31 PM
This is nothing to be pissed about. We have plenty of WR options. He will compete for a spot, maybe he makes the cut maybe he doesn't. Either way we will be deadly as ever on offense this year.

In terms of getting another WR, and one that actually has some experience, I think it was necessary.

I just don't like the idea of having that low-class piece of sh*t in a Chiefs jersey. There's little appealing about having a no-talent buffoon on the team.

I'm going to try and wipe the slate clean in terms of my opinion of the guy. Give him a fair chance, etc. But with knowledge of his past, he'll be on a short leash.

He signed for cheap and has a LOT to prove. He clearly didn't prove anything in Philly and claims it was because he didn't get the chance. Well, if he makes the team then he will get his chance now.

Bottom line........it's put up or shut up time! With a one year contract he will have to produce or getting cut from a second team will shut him up!!

I don't see him as being the most physically gifted receiver but with so much to lose he could be the receiver who puts out the most effort to prove he was worthy of a 1st round pick.

We'll see..............

Count me in there with you. I may hate what DV has let the D become to date, but if DV says :thumb: and Al says :thumb: and FX comes in and beats out the field, I have absolutely no problem. And if he doesn't beat out the field, I'll be confident it's because our up and comers are ready for prime time. Win, win.

In terms of attitude, can't be any worse than "3 more hours" Morton.

Can't wait to bust on the haters.

Neither DV or AS wanted anything to with Mitchell until Hakim bolted.

And how you can you "hate" on a guy who has been terrible his entire career?

It's not like we're ignoring that one season where he dominated...you know, that one season...

This isnt the worst move in the world for the Chiefs.

Mitchell is still a relatively young receiver. Im not really getting all of the animosity that is directed towards him.

Some of you act like he has zero ability at all. In case youre not up on current events, it does happen sometimes that certain players do not excel in certain schemes. Is this the case with Freddie Mitchell? I dont know, but Im not about to rule it out before seeing him play for the Chiefs.

Does he sometimes say things he probably shouldnt? Yeah, but I hardly find that reason enough to want him lynched. He knows he screwed up, and will most likely be much more focused this year than he has been in the past.

He WILL have opportunities to get the ball if he makes the team, because Green is an excellent QB and distributes the ball very well to everyone on the offense. If he can get open, Green will find him.

Ive said this before, Donovan McNabb isnt the greatest passer in the league. When youre the third or fourth option in the progression in a scheme with McNabb, youre not going to get too many looks, because Donovan will just tuck the ball and run. Hes not a pocket passer, and never has been.

Trent Green on the other hand doesnt have the running ability that McNabb has, but has the patience and presence to scramble a little and buy more time, always looking to make the play with his arm.


I think Freddie Mitchell could have one of his best seasons as a pro if he makes the team, because the Al and Dick are in love with the passing game first and foremost, and Trent Green is the QB. The Chiefs pass the ball much more than the Eagles do, which will turn into more opportunities for Mitchell to make plays.


While I dont think that Mitchell is the greatest addition to the team in the world, I hardly think that he is the worst. He's got playoff experience, and has shown great playmaking ability in big games. Just off the top of my head, think back to the now famous 4th and 26. It doesnt really get much bigger than that in a playoff game, and he made the play.

If he can get his personal issues in order, I think he could be a good addition to this offense.

I'm looking forward to the first time Ronda Moss corners him in a post game, "Do you think the three passes you dropped affected the outcome of the game?".

Mitchell was never the 3rd or 4th option. He was the 1st or 2nd option.

That's why their passing game sucked so bad and they to go get Owens.

Look how many recptions a good WR had with McNabb.

I think trndobrd said it best:

"Many teams will not throw to a receiver that is not "open", as they say. This may have something to do with the lack of passes in his direction."

I realize not everyone is the best at his position, but when you are not good and have that mouth......uh no thanks. At least Bartee never called out anyone or thanked his hands in the national media after having a couple good plays.

For the record, I like everything about the signing except his attitude and mouth. If we could sew his trap shut and guarentee he'd never speak, I would be fine.

That said one of DV's mantra's is having a family atmopshere, so either this chump subcombs to that or he leaves the way he came.

On the Panther board I frequent his nickname is L-Mini....league minimum.

That was true before, but over the last couple of seasons McNabb has become far better at reading his progressions and making plays with his arm, rather than tucking the ball and running.
