Okay this is not coming from my credible source, but I have heard a rumor.

The Chiefs may be toying with the thought of moving Will Shields over to LT, until Big Roaf gets healthy.

It was on 610 this morning that Grunhard talked to Solari who said it is something they've thought about. Nothing more than that right now.

He's done it before, not sure if he's got the strength/stamina to do it again, but it's worth a shot. Shields, Waters, Weigman, Welbourne, Black don't sound to shabby.

Vermiel's press conference seems to dispute that.

I doubt it, but it couldn't be much worse than we've been seeing.

Shields can barely play guard anymore. I doubt he's going to be better in the more demanding role of left tackle.

I'll take Shields in a wheelchair over Black right now.

He didn't disput it. Obviously they disputed toying with him at LT, if Mike Solari said they have been thinking about it.

He just said it won't happen. End of discussion.

Who they hell asked about Jason Dunn playing LT. What the F????

No he hasn't. I know that on plays he has been beat on, Trent had fumbled twice for Turn overs and LJ got lit up as the ball was handed over for a fumble TO.

That would be Bob Fescoe...

Of course he did.

It seems the most obvious way to improve our offense...

This rumor is from Grunhard. He's talking about it on 610 like he has inside info that its true.

But he has also said he had inside info before and it was total BS. He is a tool sometimes and gets used by people. Example

The collins incident in the bar. He railed against the media saying they had the story all wrong. The bar and bouncer were out of line. They did nothing wrong. That was just some Chiefs pr dude spinning it and he bought it hook line and sinker.

I wonder if Sampson can play LT if he's healthy this week.

He's worked there before.

Can someone refresh my memory?

I can't remember Shields ever lining up at LT. I remember him playing RT, but not left.

I thought he subbed for Tait when he lined up there.

Shields did indeed play left tackle for a few games probably five years ago. He was impressive at that time.

i thought he should of been move to RT permanently when we traded for welbourn.

Captained the Chiefs offense along with C Tim Grunhard Opened 15 games at right guard and one at left tackle Selected to his sixth straight Pro Bowl Filled in at left tackle when starter John Tait left the game with an injury at New England (12/4). It was his second career action at tackle. He filled in at right tackle at Cleveland (9/24/95) when injuries sidelined John Alt and Jeff Criswell Made his first NFL start at left tackle vs. Carolina (12/10) in place of Tait Returned to his starting spot at right guard vs. Denver (12/17) ... Kansas City tied a franchise record by not permitting a sack in those three consecutive contests vs. the Patriots, Panthers and Broncos with Shields seeing substantial action at left tackle in two of those games.

I actually thought he played more at LT than he has.

It's not like hes been dominating people at Guard either. He has his moments but he's clearly declined. I have serious doubts he'd do much better at left tackle. Plus as much as I like him I'd hate to see him moved there only to get burned over and over. I'd rather he didn't have to go through that.

They won't even let him play RT.
