Someone previously asked who Gunther compared Tamba to.

The information is on a Q&A on Tamba on the Chiefs web site.

Leslie O'Neal is #8 on the All-time sack list. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/alltime/leaders?cat=sacks)

I'd take it.

Lesile O'Neal was a badass, and that comment will either make or break Hali's reputation if he's a success or bust.

where would DT have ended up if he had be able to finish his career?

It's easy to be the one being compared, people do that all the time, though it is good company nonetheless.

I'll be impressed when 10 years from now someone says "He reminds me of a Tamba Hali-type player." :-)

Moooo

simeon rice is only going into his 10th year and he is already 13th all time. He may end up in the top 5 all time for sacks.

probably well over 200 sacks. He would have put the record up there where it would never be broken.

you are joking right? He only had 7 sacks his final year. He was 32 years old and getting heavier. I think top 5, probably a litttle ahead of Kevin Greene, IMO.

That's what happens whenever people die before their time. They become immortalized. He could have had 14 sacks the next year, or 4. No one knows. Sadly enough, he'll probably be considered a better player with his unfortunate death than if he would have gone on to play out of his prime. He could have become a Bruce Smith type player who didn't know when to quit.

I watched Neil take too many plays off, while he was still a good player, it always drove me nuts.

DT did like to party, but I would guess he had at least 5 good years left-and maybe 2 being just a 3rd down end. If he averaged 10 sacks a year??

He should be in the HOF-that is for sure!

Understandable, when we got him, because he had cronic back problems. None the less, he was still pretty good the couple of years we had him.

With the 20th pick in this year's draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Defensive End Michbruggie Strasmithe.

Neil Smith took a lot of plays off, sorry man. He did know when to turn it on, but it wasn't always on. Especially in his last few years playing here.

Everyone takes plays off. Some people dont wanna admit that but its true.

Then why has it taken more than two years after he's been qualified to make the Hall of Fame?

Hell yeah I'll take it. But we should be careful comparing him to someone like O'Neal...

He had 12.5 sacks and 2 INT's his rookie season in only 13 games.

In his first 10 seasons he had less than 12 sacks only TWICE.

I doubt that DT would have gotten anywhere close to 200 sacks.

His game relied on speed around the edges, and he was already slowing down.

He might have reached 150.

Good point, Mr. htismaqe. Anyway, rookie comparisons to other players are similar in at least one respect to man-nipples.

I'm optimistc about the Mamba's chances to get significant numbers this year because our schedule looks so favorable. Many of the o-lines we face aren't spectacular.

The FAX-ball indicates that he's going to be a really good player for us.

If Leslie O'Neal hadn't blown out his knee as his career was starting, he might well be talked about in the same breath as LT and Reggie White. I remember watching him his rookie year with the Chargers, and my face went white with fear.

You know, that a great point, Mr. morphius. My theory is that he developed the "flinch move" just for that reason.

When he was tired, he would use the "flinch move" and use the off-sides call (when he got it) to buy time. It's a lot easier to get the guy across from you to move than to take on the block.
