Sheesh! I didn't realize that the Chiefs were this banged up. I almost wish that I hadn't posted this. It's depressing. :(

Bell - without question.

Definitely Bell. I have the sinking feeling that they are not being completely honest about his injury(ies).

Will Shields. He's a very important part of this O-line. We don't know what it's like to play without him.

We don't know what we're missing with guys like Bell and Wilson. They may turn out to suck anyway. To me, it's about keeping the status quo on offense and letting our new defenders improve the D. We have Surtain, Knight, and DJ. They've all shown playmaking ability already.

in order, I would say:

1. Bell
2. Bell
3. Bell


even though he isn't injured according to the PPL (yes! I finally have my KCJohnny moment! the planet party line ROFL )

For me, I think I'll rank them:

Shields
Bell
Sampson
Green
Siavii
Griffin
Holcombe
Hall
Gonzalez
Mitchell

Shields and Sampson..

Shields and Sampson..

Shields goes without saying. Sampson and Jordan Black seem to be pretty much the same guy. Didn't Black do a pretty decent job at RT for the last few games last year?

I can't believe people are more concerned about a guy that's never taken a single snap for us than for the guy that is the anchor of our offense.

Sampson more along the lines of turf toe being a lingering injury, IIRC.

I take Will's word for it when he says he'll be ready for the Jets game. He truly is one of the few guys that can skip training camp and still be ready to play. Bell, on the other hand, was brought in here to make a difference on a pathetic defense.

Shields is reliable. He actually is practicing, and he is actually going to play this Saturday. I don't think he will miss a game this season. On the other hand Bell seems to have a glass vagina.

Great poll, Gunther fan.

I love the new, improved version.

Maybe someone here knows this, but someone on the KCStar board posted that Bell himself said he wasn't sure he'd be ready for the opener against NY on 610 AM today. Anybody know if that was true? The poster said they played it over and over...But he was the only one that mentioned it, and nobody questioned it.

Here is the post...

K Bell says himself that he is not sure if he will play Sept 11. It was on 610 radio several times this evening. This all sounds somewhat strange to me. If he is healthy, why are they holding him out? If he is that fragile there will be problems. If they are scared to play him now, what about when he does play in the regular season. We were led to believe that he was healthy when they signed him. He said it himself. He said he could play now. I am not saying we should cut him but this is a very strange situation.

It could be because the question was "which Chiefs injury worries you the most" not which Chiefs player would hurt the team the most if they were unable to play. I think Shields will be fine, Bell on the other hand??

Our defense has sucked for three years and Bell was a big big reason for hope for significant improvement. Lose him and most of that hope dissipates.

Rhonda Moss asked him if he would be ready to play 9/11. He said he wasn't Mrs. Cleo, he can't predict the future (piss-off, you annoy me).

If I recall, when he first came to KC & was asked about his injuries last season. He said he tried to come back to soon & that was a mistake he would not make again.

I think he is the one being overly cautious here. He signed a contract with a lot of performance incentives. It's his dime

The glass vagina of Bell is the most disconcerting up to this point...

glass vagina means no dick for the chiefs.
This will be vermiel's last year if kendrell bell does not play.

I voted Siavii. I almost picked Bell. However, I feel better about the people that would play if Bell didn't (Fox, Fuijia, Griffin) than I do about the person that would play if Sims goes down. Who is Sims backup anyway?

Meh, I'm not worried about any of the Chiefs injuries at this point. I think they will all be healthy and ready to lead us to a 15-1 season on the way to the Super Bowl.


Thanks to Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, and the my good friend Ricky Williams for helping me achieve this state of positive thinking and irrational good cheer.

I think almost all of these guys will play on opening day and beyond. Mitchell might not be on the team, Holcombe will miss the first game or two and Sampson will miss only the first game. The rest of the guys will be fine. If the game were today, they'd play. The team is just protecting them. I don't blame them for being careful.

bell first
shields second


shields "i don't really know how much i wanna play this year" attitude is what prolly scares me the most.

Yep. My answer might have been Shields if the question was which player would you be most concerned to lose for an extended period during the season due to injury, but Shields current injury doesn't concern me because he says he'll be ready. Bell's injury concerns me more because it is mysterious and because I think he's a key to turning our defense around.

Bell.

I'm paranoid right now.

Like many others, I think Shields will be ready and probably already is ready. I was worried about his desire earlier this year, but since he has made the definite commitment to play this year I no longer worry. He seems like a real integrity kind of guy who will give it his all when game time comes around.

I figured this would be a landslide. Bell is a big concern, for sure.
