Carlos Hall, DL KC

News: The Kansas City Star reports that DE Carlos Hall, who has battled injuries throughout his career, is a candidate to be cut by the Chiefs. The coaches seemingly love his playmaking ability, but are afraid he's too injury prone to be counted on.

Analysis: Hall was once a Fantasy surprise, but now he's not worth using in any IDP league.

For all of you who are EXTREMELY disappointed that Eric Hicks will continue to be employed...

Blame THIS guy.

If Carlos Hall is cut and Eric Hicks is still on the roster, at the end of the year they will have both done the same thing for the Chiefs.........NOTHING.

Actually Hicks will have probably done alot of stupid shit like getting suckered in on 100 bootlegs while Hall did nothing.

We've purged Dexy, Warfield and PUP'd Bartee. Why can't we complete the cycle and ditch Hicks?

We best be active after the last round of cuts. Upgrade DT, DE and WR.

Doesn't change the fact that you have to fill slots with bodies. If Hall could ever get healthy, Hicks would be expendable...

We cut players because they suck. Other teams cut players because they have an overabundance of probowlers at every position.

Why, it'll be like Christmas for us next week! Magical!

Whenever they cut Kris Jenkins due to his injury problems, we can pick him up... :)

I hope we cut all these guys who were habitual injuries during the Vermeil era. How often would you think, "ok, so our d-line sucks, but this guy is about to be back and maybe he can contribute" only to have him end up on the inactives every week? Stability, if not great talent, would be something.

The problem is that "stability, if not great talent" EQUALS Eric Hicks...

The thing is, is that Hicks used to kill the bootlegs. In 2000, most of his 14 sacks were from QBs running the bootleg. I think he has lost intelligence with age.

He's also lost considerable physical tools. He's horribly slow and he gets pushed to the ground by TE's and RB's, let alone offensive linemen...

I guess that only means we can ask ourselves one thing...

WHY THE **** IS HE STILL ON THE TEAM?;)

Because they need a warm body and nobody else will step up. :banghead:

Yeah, but Hicks, mediocre as he is, at least stays healthy. He does more for you than somebody who's never in uniform.

I absolutely agree, which is why I've been defending the decision to keep him.

As much as I can't stand him, they don't really have a choice.

I agree as well. At least he's ok against the run at times. I just hope they don't rotate him in that much this year. I figure Hali won't need that much rest being that he didn't play until last week, maybe?

How about Jimmy Wilkerson?

In my opinion, he is better than Hicks.

He was consistently beating OTs in the preseason games. It's interesting...

How about anybody.....we just need to get Hicks contract off the roster. If it's just because he's a warm body I'm sure we can find someone else who doesn't make half the money that could at worst do the same job.

Cut.

I believe the thinking is they will keep four DE's + four DT's with one extra guy that will play both which = Wilkerson

It might be 3+4+ Wilkerson and not the 4+4 I mentioned. Its still early for me.

Anyways, Gawd I want Hicks gone in the worst way. It really is a reflection of the lack of talent we have on the D-Line IMO.

and I do blame Hall for this. If he gets cut and Hicks stays on. It is his fault. htsimagine is right.

Hicks had a few injuries. He had at least one knee injury and possibly two.

It is pretty easy to stay healthy if you never hit anyone (hicks),but then again i better ask fox that question

Carolina again should have an elite defense. The Panthers are so good along the defensive line that they're probably going to release a guy who'll wind up playing significant time with another club. Damione Lewis, a first-round pick in 2001, is listed as third on the depth chart at left defensive tackle. The front line of Julius Peppers, Mike Rucker, Kris Jenkins and Maake Kemoeatu might be the best in the business. Should the Panthers get hit with injuries up front again, they'll be all right with the depth they have.
