View Full Version : Dalton: Bringing out the Animal

By Nick Athan

Chiefsí defensive tackle Lional Dalton signed a new contract this off-season, and heís looking to give the team his best in 2006 and beyond. With a new head coach and defensive line coach by his side, Dalton is ready to wreak havoc on opposing offenses.

After shopping his services around the league in March, Dalton realized that there was no place like home. That was in Kansas City, where heís been a fixture in the middle of the Chiefs defense since 2004.

For those who donít know Dalton, heís a fun-loving guy who is all business on the football field. And that business is to occupy the middle of the line of scrimmage alongside Ryan Sims. Their job is to force opponents to concentrate on using the center and both guards so the Chiefsí outside pass rushers have a more direct path to the quarterback.

Nothing will be more important to the Chiefs defensive fortunes this season than the play of Daltonís line mates. The players on the inside donít get much publicity, but they set the tone at the point of attack. How well they play will determine how the rest of the defense fares this season.

Dalton has been impressive in training camp so far. Heís clogging the middle and doing a good job of forcing running backs to go outside, where the linebackers are in position to make tackles and prevent long gains.

There is no question the defense is ahead of the offense at this point in training camp. Dalton realizes itís early, but he knows what he needs to do to improve.

ďIím just trying to get better, and trying not make the same mistakes twice,Ē said Dalton. ďMy conditioning is getting better, and when youíre in better shape you can be more active on the field. Thatís when you can give 100 percent on the field and you can start having fun. Thatís when your true animal comes out.Ē

That attitude is why the Chiefs signed Dalton to a long-term deal in the Spring. Heís always been a productive player, and his energy level is contagious. Heís also a leader and this season he has a better defensive coaching staff around him. New defensive line coach Tim Krumrie has made a big impression on Dalton.

ďHeís played 12 years in the league, so we respect what he says as a player and a coach,Ē said Dalton. ďHeís intense. Thereís no slacking around him. He really gets us going on the field.Ē

And thatís the key for Dalton and Sims this year. Krumrie is a passionate and determined coach. Heís the perfect man to teach the Chiefs defensive linemen, and thatís exactly what he does every day. Chiefs Head Coach Herman Edwards has every position coach spend 20 minutes with their respective players, and he believes these sessions will pay off in the long run.

He might be right, because the defensive line appears to be more focused than in years past. If they buy into the new defensive schemes designed by defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham, Dalton could have a monster season.

Daltonís best characteristic is that heís a veteran who still has plenty left in the tank. He doesnít need a kick in the pants, and heís willing to be a leader.

But training camp isnít easy for anyone. Talent alone wonít get you through the grind of two-a-days. Dalton said that itís important to be mentally tough so you can work your way through the preseason.

If the rest of the defense can handle that aspect of Camp Edwards, Dalton and his ten friends might find themselves destroying anyone who gets in their way once the regular season starts.

I agree with you Phil. There's a lot more on WPI that's not Athan, and for the most part, it's good stuff. I think people begrudge WPI mainly because you charge people for content that is available other places for free, and maybe you should consider charging subscription rates for the people who want the magazine. The KC Star charges people for the newspaper, but the content is all online. Maybe your website could make money by selling ad space.

:shrug:

Another problem many have is the association with Athan -- he's dug his own grave, as you admit. As such, if he wants a lot of people to take him seriously, he NEEDS to make someone else the face of WPI. Of course, that's just my opinion.




I do want to reiterate, though, for my fellow Planeteers... there is a lot more than just Athan (I could be wrong, but I think he writes less than he used to, THANK GOD). I've said on this board and will say again (with the understanding that people will probably start saying I'm on Athan's payroll) that the content there is a LOT better than it used to be.

I'll also reiterate I don't think you should charge people for the content that's online.

I'm sure there are good people working at warpaint. But this is the usual Athan tripe. Pretty much any fan could have written it, there's no special information or insight here.

Without the (two) quotes you can't even tell that the writer has been at camp. And who knows where those were from? All that a person would need to put this article together would be to see these two quotes in other media.

You never see any expertise in Athan's stuff. You could write these articles about Dalton in your Madden '06 season. There's no sourcing, no support for statements made, no stats, just... no meat. No personalities, none of the human side of the sport.

Like all off Athan's stuff, it reads like a BSing on a high school essay question.

No. It's not cheap, either, because we don't have a massive circulation. The subscription price is only a little cheaper than picking one up from a news stand in KC.

Thanks. I never seen it.It's largely fluff, and being a monthly publication, you won't find any earth shattering news in it. A lot of the writing is pretty poor too. It's just not stuff that draws you in.

It is a decent source for stories that delve deeper into individual players, albeit usually more of the Lional Daltons than the star players.

If the money came out of my pocket, I wouldn't get it.

Our most recent issue had an exclusive one-on-one interview with Herm Edwards.

The other articles included:

1. A rundown of the 12 most dangerous players the Chiefs will face this year.

2. A feature on Kendall Gammon. Has info about his book and his NFL story.

3. Fantasy draft guide.

4. Steve Murray's AFC West Report

5. A feature on Kawika Mitchell...very in-depth, and has some great quotes from Gunther and Kawika.

6. My column.

7. The debut of our award-winning columnist. He's an outstanding writer.

8. A tailgating recipe by Phil.

I think Dalton has plenty of talent. He'll be the starter again this year.

I think he sucks. All of our DL that were previously on this team before this season suck with the exception of Carlos Hall whos been injured but is good when he was in and Jared Allen for obvious reasons. Personally I hope Reed or Edwards make it into the other starting DT slot becuase hopefully Sims gets his shit together and stays healthy. I'm also optimistic on Hali.

I like Dalton and feel he has definitely been the second best D Lineman the Chiefs have had the last 3 years. No, I'm not a WPI member.
I think the Chiefs will finally have a good rotation this year with Sims, Dalton, Reed, Edwards and Wilkerson. The last few years, the Chiefs would piss me off by sending in people like Siavii and Browning on the same down. At least now, they could send in Edwards and Reed and not lose much, if anything. On the D line, depth is very important and the Chiefs haven't had it in several years.

It amazes me how Chiefs fans attack Chiefs fans from another board. Absolutely amazing. I've been to and go to just about every Chiefs board because I love the discussions, the posting of new info and any info I can get on the Chiefs. The only one I don't go to is NEPA because they won't allow me access.

Yes I have and do write articles for WPI. Mine are more editorials or hopefully an angle others don't explore (like my season long series that was a debate of the upcoming game with fans from the opposing teams). Not pulitzer worthy stuff, but I found it very interesting to see what fans from our opponents had to say about themselves and about us.

I've found that each board has its strengths and weaknesses.

ChiefsPlanet definitely has the best discussions on its boards and is pretty quick with the nationally published news.

WPI has the best information because whether we like to admit it or not, they have more access to the Chiefs than any other website (except the Star and Capital Journal). Mike Campbell and Mike Nugent are able to get actual interviews with players. They have also been updating the happenings of training camp every day. Here's a taste, Derek Ross has been getting a lot of carries in camp and has a real shot to be #2 behind LJ. No other site (Star and CJ included) have provided that type of info on a position that is a big question mark. Here's the kicker, Campbell has been touting Ross since the Chiefs signed him right after the draft, because Campbell provides indepth coverage of the draft. Further, WPI actually gets press credentials. They are at the press conferences, in the press box at games, and even on local radio shows discussing the Chiefs. Love em or hate em...that's darn impressive. One other truth about WPI, Nick (until recently when camp started) is writing less and handling the business side of WPI advertisements, marketing events, etc....

The Star board and Wild Bill are ok, but they do keep up with Chiefs news pretty quickly.

ChiefsCoalition has some pretty interesting articles as well


I don't begrudge anyone about not wanting to pay for the premium membership. I think WPI can do a better job of making the premium content more "premium".

Cochise

Take this paragraph, for example.


For those who donít know Dalton,


The author knows Dalton? How? How well? Give us some details on this relationship, or leave this part out. If this is commentary, we need more information. If this is reporting fact, it doesn't belong.

heís a fun-loving guy who is all business on the football field.

According to whom? What does he do that makes him fun loving? Does he party with Eric Warfield? Does he dress up like a clown for his kids' birthday parties? Does he enjoy hanggliding or windsurfing or something?

This is a statement of opinion, and doesn't belong without some point of reference.


And that business is to occupy the middle of the line of scrimmage alongside Ryan Sims. Their job is to force opponents to concentrate on using the center and both guards so the Chiefsí outside pass rushers have a more direct path to the quarterback.


Aside from it starting with a sentence fragment, this part doesn't really serve any purpose. If the reader is interested enough to be on the website reading this, he probably knows that he is a defensive tackle and what a defensive tackle does.

Plus, it gives the impression that the generally accepted role is some Greg Robinsonesque concept of the DT position where they aren't supposed to get up the field, they are supposed to stay at the LOS and soak up blockers so the rush can come from the outside. If the reader already knows what a DT does, this is irrelevant. If they don't, then this at best only tells half the story.


These are just some examples. Not trying to bash him, I'm just giving examples of why people consider it fluff. I don't mind seeing articles posted here. Obviously it's not a big inconvenience. But if they had some substance, if they were written in a professional way, if they brought some new info, I think people would be more accepting.

This Ryan Sims article is much better. Good info, particularly this:

In the past, the knock on Sims was that he was lazy. He had trouble keeping his weight under control. But Edwardsí isnít concerned with the past. Heís satisfied with what he sees out of Sims so far.

ďAll I know is what I see right now,Ē said Edwards. ďThatís all I can judge. Heís done everything he can do to come and be in shape in camp and compete and go hard.Ē

1. Who cares? He's a marginal player at best. Get this info about Ryan Sims or Kendrell Bell and you'll be in business.

.

Why is Dalton a marginal player? Isn't he a starter just like Sims and Bell?

He made 12 tackles last year.

I like any news concerning the Chiefs.

I'm not really able to muster the animosity about the WPI stuff.

Which ones am I supposed to hate? I'm confused.

Dalton has never been injured or otherwise had issues standing in his way, yet he's never produced.

Bell is a former DRoY who has suffered through severe injuries and Sims is a 6th pick who has suffered through multiple season-ending injuries.

There is hope, no matter how slight, for Bell and Sims. There is no hope for Dalton. He is what he is, which isn't much.

Phobia,
I have no problem with Athan's fluff. It is what it is. I don't think GoChiefs original intention when posting this was to spam WPi either. I'm surprised you stand up for, support, defend, compliment Athan's work. Were you not with WPi I suspect you would be complaining about the substance of this article just like others on this BB. I respect the fact that you've earned a position at WPi and I don't even mind your spamming it. I do mind when you spam it and try to convince others that you're not spamming it. I expect it from GoChiefs because he's a follower and is completely transparent. You're a leader and I'm surprised you're trying to convince people that this latest article from Athan is not fluff. I invision GoChief's sly smile while he's posting because he's getting more PR for WPi and because he gets another feather in his cap from you, and sadly, you continue to supply him feathers. JMO. Drinks are on me.

Extremely well put. GoatCheese is a parasite on his knees for attention. I had hoped that when football season started to roll around he would fade away, but now that a couple of fools have thrown his stray ass some crumbs he is louder than ever.
They actually have the kid thinking he knows something about football other than what he has read in a book.

I haven't complimented Athan's work on this thread whatsoever. I don't often read him. But it has improved now that we have people editing. I personally learned things from the article in question, so I don't consider it a fluff piece. I can understand why others (such as Parker who apparently already knew everything that was new to me) might call it fluff.

I don't hand out feathers to gochiefs for anything but his editing and writing. He does whatever he wishes, I don't give him much guidance nor does anybody else. If I had any amount of control or he were motivated by "feathers" then he'd be spending the bulk of his online time at Warpaint and not on ChiefsPlanet. But he likes to post here and who am I to tell him where he can and can't post?

I don't know how the word spam even comes into this thread. The only time a link was provided is when it was specifically asked for. I'm going to start calling every star article posted on this site spam - that's how loosely some morons have begun to use the term. I post articles from Warpaint to share the information and make Warpaint a more accepted form of Chiefs coverage. I don't care where you spend your online time discussing the Chiefs - you'll go where you're most comfortable. *I* of all people understand that dynamic - I've been making people feel comfortable and accepted at THIS site for the past 5 years. I KNOW how to build a thriving website and I NEVER spammed ChiefsPlanet ANYWHERE. If I were pimping my Warpaint message boards on ChiefsPlanet I could understand the pushback but I'm really and truly not doing that. Would I like more people to post at Warpaint? Sure - but I don't believe spamming is the way to build an online community.

You've convinced me. I'm done with the WPi bashing.
