I am not a Gunther fan, but he gets props for turning Kawika into a pretty damn good MLB.

KaWika, KaVika, Katie, Karol.

He's a badass MoFo in the middle now, by any name!

But I guess it's KaVika.

Well, I'm not ready to put him in the Pro Bowl -- especially in a conference with Ray Lewis and Al Wilson among others.

But he's definately become a very solid MLB. He's a sure tackler and gets great drops in his zones.

Overall, I'm very pleased with his improvement.

The Missle, blowing up your offenses at a staudium near you!

I can't take credit for it. I am pretty sure I heard it somewhere else a week or two ago. I just can't remember where. I think it suits him well.

I'm obviously biased as a Chiefs fan, but he's probably the best player in football nobody knows about.

Lets not be modest. He is the best player in football period. Sit down LT!

Uh, in case you haven't been paying attention, Ray-Ray has been out with an injury for a few weeks, and had already lost his second burst, anyway.

But, you're right, he won't be in the PB this year, but people are going to start noticing soon that he's a player.

He has been pro bowl caliber as far as athletic talent and has been playing up to his potential this year. However, he made some mistakes out there today. Those long runs that went to the left were often on him. Bell comes in and blows up the lead blocker Mitchell needs to slide into the hole and make the tackle. He was taking poor angles too close to the LOS.

True dat.

But Pro Bowl selections are largely based on reputation, not actual production. As it stands now, Mitchell would be behind guys like Lewis, Zack Thomas, Teddy Bruschi and several others.

Hell, Seau made the trip to Hawaii several years after he lost his burst.

Vilma too. If Kawika played in a bigger market he'd be pretty well known.

If this is directed at me, I did say that Gun gets props for Kawika's improvement.

In other words, I believe that Gun is responsible.

You're right, which is why I said this in the original post you quoted.

Are we sure we don't want to cut him? I mean, I'd hate for anyone around here to "flip-flop."

Hey.

I admit it.

I was a huge doubter, and hater.

I am truly excited and ecstatic to be wrong.

I am now becoming a big fan.

Don't forget Scanlon. He plays in the AFC too.

Mitchell's another example of why I don't judge the performance of a draft pick until year 3-4. He's not pro bowl calibre yet, I don't think, but he's on his way.

I hated him when he was awful. If he gets awful again, I'll hate him again.

The way I look at it MLB is no longer a need on this team. Neither is CB, Safety, and one of the OLB positions (not sold on Bell at all). Also seem OK at DT, great at RDE. Just need a Dwight Freeney type to take Eric Hicks position as well as depth and we should be OK on defense.

Hicks played a hell of a game.

Hicks made a couple of good plays.

"hell of a game" is pure embellishment.

Mitchell had a couple of nice plays, but did everyone missed the half a dozen times he got blew up in the running game?

Even the very best miss plays.

Kawika is making a lot more plays now than he's missing.

And he's taking charge out there now.

He was darn crucial on that one series down in the red zone though...

Mitchell is most certainly the team's most improved player. He has REALLY stepped up his game. I was one of the ones calling for his replacement. He has changed my mind :)

Im glad to see Mitchell step it up. I noticed Sims making a few plays yesterday as well. He was key on that 4th down stop.

Thanks you for posting :) ..........The only thing I saw blowed up was Laz's brain. Well maybe it was bird poop on my windshield but you guys still get it. Mitchell has turned into a very good every down MLB with run stuffing skills, pass D skills and rushing the QB skills. I know, I know Bell should be starting at MLB and Mitchell should be 3rd string for the Texans :rolleyes:

I had to watch twice just to make sure I wasn't imagining things, but there was a definite difference between the snaps with Sims and the snaps without him. When Sims was in the game, we pretty much shut down their running game.

Let's not get overzealous here.

I was THE Mitchell defender on this board since the day he was drafted. Even I was ready to throw in the towel.

Can't disagree, but Mitchell was the better MLB on this last Sunday.
