The following probably were starters in 2003 (just a guess):

DE-Eric Hicks & Vonnie Holliday
DT-John Browning & Ryan Sims
LB-Shawn Barber, Mike Maslowski & Scott Fujita
CB-William Bartee & Eric Warfield
S-Greg Wesley & Jerome Woods

This year's team:
DE-Hali & Allen (upgrades)
DT-Reed & Edwards (upgrades)
LB-Bell, Mitchell & Johnson (upgrades)
CB-Surtain & Law (upgrades)
S-Wesley & Knight (upgrades)

I can't see one player that I would rather have from the 2003 team over this year's team.

I can see the Colts punter getting some reps on Sunday.

I think Fujita can correctly cover a TE, so I'd take him over Bell. Maybe Maz too if the situation arises when you need both Kawika and Maz at the same time.


BTW, wasn't Maz hurt long before that playoff game?

Maslowski was out for the season. When he left, he took the smoke and mirrors our godawful _efense had been hiding behind.

I'd take a healthy 2003 Maz over Whiff-master Mitchell in a heartbeat. What Maz lacked in talent he made up for in heart and brains.

I'd also take Fuj over Bell.

But other than that, yeah, it's definitely an improvement.

You forgot Goonther vs GRob at D-Coordinator.

That is a toss-up there

Kawika was the starting middle linebacker by the end of '03 along with Fujita. Both were complaining that they were given a new defense just a few days before the game, both were standing around like they had NO IDEA where to go after the ball was snapped. Holliday is right, but McLeon and Bartee actually were the starters, and Warfield was the nickle for that game. Still, the point is the same. Better players = Colts will probably punt this weekend.

the CB situation was WAY worse... as McPasson was starting with Warfield.

DT were R.Kal Truluck and John Browning... and you were right about the D.E.

I just rewatched the Synopsis of that playoff game on my 2003 Chiefs "A Team Together" DVD

We really had a shot in that game... too bad G.ROB Sux teh big One11!!

I did a web site search for the game, but couldn't find the starters. So thanks for the updates.

As I remember the game, the only play that stands out to me (and to be honest, the only one I even remember), is Priest Holmes run at the start of the second half where he fumbled. If that wouldn't have happened ...

Truluck was a pass-rushing situational DE. Browning was the starter at DT that day with Sims.

I'd have taken Shawn Barber over Bell, too.

But compare 2003 OFFENSIVE starters with todays, and you have downgrades.
