I like what I've seen so far...and I've been as hard on Mitchell as anyone.

Really looks good tonight...I like the way he seems to be reading the plays better, and isn't hesitating, but getting in there and making some plays! Hopefully we see that when the season starts!

Still has some problems in space, but like last week he was up in there against the run...

Jesus Christ....the guy made one freaking play the whole game. Big freakin' deal. The other tackle he made was after a five yard run up the gut. Yeah, nice game, Kawika.

I didn't get the Kawika love-fest at the beginning of the pre-game show with Mitch and Len. Why?

He had three tackles. One was a tackle for a loss of four yards. The second was on the five yard run that you mentioned, and the third was 3-12 that led to their first missed fieldgoal.

I also saw him with a nice missed tackle on their WR on a pass down the middle near our 10 yard line or so.

Ill reserve judgement until the "real" games start in a few more weeks.

Mitchell has improved but IMO he's still not a quality starting NFL MLB - but he is the best we have. Hopefully he'll be adequate. I'll hold off on my judgement until the games count.

Mitchell is playing better so far. It will be interesting to see him over the course of 4 quarters. I hope he continues to progress.

Are we going to get one of these gay threads every week from Pitt Gorilla? Somebody give him his cookie so he can shut the f*ck up.

I was at the game and it's a little difficult to focus on individual players live. So, I didn't really notice Mitchell in particular this week.

You didn't hear the announcer say "Tackle by Kawika Mitchell"?

Oh. I thought it meant that so-and-so was tackled by Kawika Mitchell. Is there more I'm supposed to be reading into it?

Yes.

If it's 3rd and 10 and Kawika Mitchell misses his assignment but comes back to make the tackle 22 yards down the field, does that mean that he did a good job?

Personally, I think that Mitchell has looked good for you guys this pre-season (though that's more based on the first game than the second, since I only saw bits and pieces of the second).

Are you not a Chiefs fan?

And I see your point.

I wouldn't piss on the Chiefs if they were on fire. I bleed silver and black. Unlike a lot of folks, however, I don't base character determinations on "favorite football team" and just love talking AFC West football... (in case you were wondering why I'm at CP)...

You might want to see a doctor about that. I don't think that's normal... :p

I enjoy talking to you despite your lack of better judgement. :p

These things keep popping into my head, and my fingers just keep typing. You seem to be pretty cool to me, and I like talking to ya! :)

It could also mean that somebody with a 5 on their jersey made the tackle and the announcer assumed Mitchell. It could also mean the announcer didn't see who made the tackle so he pulled a name out of his ass. It could also mean that the tackle was made in an area of the field that is normally Mitchells responsibility, so.... the name Mitchell was chosen. Finally it could mean that the ballcarrier was gangtackled and Mitchell happened to be somewhere near the pile.

Ohhhhh....so the announcers suck too.

Not necessarily, but they're not always right. When you find yourself disagreeing with the commentary on a particular play you've officially become a football addict.

I appreciate it and think likewise... but I wouldn't recommend you tell your dad about that. Strawberry "Heads up" he can handle... you getting along with a Raider fan?

No... you're going to have to keep that one from him if you want to stay in the will...

Sorry dude, did I bend over too far while explaining all that? I had forgotten we're in the presense of a seasoned convict.

Mitchell has always had the potential to be a good MLB in the NFL. He was a tackling machine in college, he's got a decent head on his shoulders, and he has an NFL body.

The big thing Mitchell needed to do this offseason/preseason, is stay healthy. I thought if Mitchell could have a healthy offseason, then he would be fine at MLB. He's done a great job of staying healthy thus far. He has missed too much practice/game time in his first couple of years in KC, and that has really hurt him IMHO.

There's no such thing as bending over too far, baby...

He did come to hard on that play and missed. His improvement may not be measured by the number of tackles in a half of football. If he's taking care of his responsibilties the play will funnel to another player. In the game last night Mitchell was dropping back in coverage alot. In the two preseason games he's had tackles for loss and made some pretty impressive plays in both. The verdict won't be in till the regular season but Mitchell looks to be doing good to me.

I really dont think its fair to expect a MLB to tackle a WR in open space. thats like putting a rat in a giant room and telling the jolly green giant to go catch it.
