Chiefs Team Report
5/21/2006

By Adam Teicher
Kansas City Star http://i.tsn.com/i/p/s.gif

PERSONNEL ANALYSIS: WR Craphonso Thorpe looks far more ready to contribute than when he came in as a rookie last year. In a recent minicamp, Thorpe was strong enough to shed cornerbacks playing press coverage, something he struggled with last season. He caught the ball consistently and showed no ill effects of the broken leg he suffered at Florida State. Thorpe is the top contender to be the third wide receiver behind Eddie Kennison and Samie Parker. Dante Hall will receive his playing time, but most of that will come as a slot receiver. . . . The release of veteran S Jerome Woods was no surprise. The drafting of Bernard Pollard in the second round and Jarrad Page in the seventh made Woods expendable. The Chiefs also have incumbent starters Sammy Knight and Greg Wesley and veteran backup William Bartee at safety. Pollard pleasantly surprised the Chiefs at a recent rookie camp with his athleticism. That was their biggest question about him. They're confident he will be a big hitter in the secondary, something he was at Purdue. Look for Pollard to give Knight a serious challenge for the starting spot on the strong side and eventually win the battle, perhaps as soon as the season-opener.

SCOUTING REPORT: Even though his debut season with the Chiefs was a disappointment because he continually battled nagging injuries, the Chiefs haven't given up on defensive end Carlos Hall. The Chiefs will give Hall a chance to be the force as a situational pass rusher they hoped he would be when they traded for him last year. Hall has pass rush skills and could be a factor if healthy. They won't ask him to play much in regular down and distance situations. Though capable of chasing running plays down from behind, Hall can also be overwhelmed by bigger, more physical opponents at the point of attack.

MINICAMP MAYHEM: On the practice field, Herm Edwards is perhaps more hands-on than any other NFL coach. That can't hurt as Edwards attempts to repair a forlorn defense. Edwards jumped into the middle of one drill after another and began instructing on the finer points. One minute, he was instructing linebackers on the proper way to pass drop. The next, he was teaching young defensive backs what to look for as the quarterback set up to throw. The players listened to the head coach, particularly one who started in the NFL for as long as Edwards did.

LINEBACKERS ANALYSIS: Grade: B-minus. The recent upgrade is tremendous. Derrick Johnson, Kawika Mitchell and Kendrell Bell are fast and athletic. Johnson and Bell need to have more of a playmaking impact.

glad to hear something positive about Crap-ho...we need him and Parker to ascend...

Good to hear about Thorpe. Particularly the “caught the ball consistently” part. Dante Hall needs to stay in the slot, so I am pleased that we have [3] WRs lined up to start.

I am glad to hear that the staff has hopes for Carlos Hall. Jeez, I still have hopes for Sims and Siavii. The idea of a QB-CRUSHING Defensive line in Red & Gold is near and dear to my crusty old heart.

Personally, would be surprised if Pollard beats out Knight. Old age and treachery Vs youth and skills, so forth.

If Bell is finally healthy, that would be a real plus. Hopefully, Gunther can unleash him on the pencil neck.

Calling Adam Teicher a homer is like calling Winston Churchill a Nazi sympathizer.

Teicher is notorious around the nation for his hatred of not only the Chiefs, but all things football.

Well, that's an exaggeration. But the guy is no homer.

Because he was the only guy that Gunt could beat in a foot race. :shrug:

No.
Really, this defense needed some leadership, and Knight brought that.

Now that Kawika appears ready to take on that responsibility, Knight's presence isn't as needed.

Good news about Thorpe. He was such a playmaker before his injury, I've had high hopes.

Surprising about Pollard. This can only be good. Either Pollard beats out Knight or it motivates Knight to play better. win/win

I'll believe the Carlos Hall thing when I see it.

fair enough...and actually, I'm happy that Gun is willing to replace Knight if he deems it necessary...let's hope he gives the same consideration to Fox/Bell...I was pretty happy with Knights play last year, he clearly had a football intelligence that our defense lacked even if his physical skills are on the downside, if Pollard can genuinely replace him that would mean Pollard was an excellent pick...still doubt it happens this year though...

I'm most excited this year about seeing Fox and Crap-ho...in terms of players who are on the roster and haven't had a shot yet.

Herm appears to be gaining the players trust. Let him coach the defense, and let Gun do what he does best.... throw people under the bus.

The drafting of Bernard Pollard in the second round and Jarrad Page in the seventh made Woods expendable
except for that they play 2 different positions

woods = free safety

btw- if the chiefs really don't have free/strong safeties then it's no wonder that the defense sucks.

He wasnt' a starter at CB.

agreed ... i'm just more concerned with having a legitimate pass defense threat back at the safety position.

one that can come over from center field and knock the ball away on those timing pass lobs down the sideline.

if we have a safety that can do that they our cornerbacks can start jumping the short stuff for the big Int's.

Players to Watch(1997)

Based on the play of Jerome Woods during April minicamp, the Chiefs chose not to re-sign veteran free safety Mark Collins. At 24, Woods, a 1996 first-round draft pick out of Memphis, is faster than the 33-year-old Collins, reflecting K.C.'s shift to a speed defense. Of Woods, coach Marty Schottenheimer says, "There will be some things he won't do as well as Mark might—but there will be plays he makes that Mark wouldn't have made."
