...who?

Connor Barth?

Brad Cottam?

Bobby Sippio?

Mike Cox?

(There's an entire thread where Niswanger blocks Sainy-Dic to open up a big hole for Cox waiting to happen)

And our QB's nickname when he screws up - Groty Boil.

Cottam without a doubt. Dude's what some folks hoped Bigfoot could be.

Please refrain from the secret weapon references....I had enough of that with Bigfoot and I hope no one from the Chiefs ever repeats the dissapointment he represented.

1000 catches for 60 total yds. (Okay not realistic, but you get the picture. :) )

Charles or Franklin, both bring game breaking speed to the offense, and Cottam is really fast for a TE. We have a fast offense now. sweet.

Don't be surprised to see Kolby Smith sent to somebody for draft picks next year.

I was thinking the exact same thing. He's our cast off this year since we have some nice RB depth and he's actually played in the NFL a little.

Yup. Keep an eye out for the first playoff contender to lose a RB to injury...I'd bet a twelve-pak their personnel people will be talking to ours within a couple of days.

I'm pretty sure it will be Cottam but Charles wouldn't be a bad choice. I like Cottam because in the Red Zone it gives us two legit TE options.

Cottam seems to be another Todd Heap. NICE. :D
He can block like Jason Dunn but he has soft hands and runs after the catch.

Rookies Flowers, Cottam, Charles, Franklin and Carr all showed last night they are going to be big contributors this year. For a rebuilding team there were a whole lot of positives last night.

On draft day Kuharich, Peterson and Herm all called Cottam the Jason Dunn replacement. Kuharich said on Merritt is he was the highest rated player on the board at their last pick, but I get the impression the Chiefs would like to have that pick back.

Cottam didnt even catch many passes in college. Hes a real raw talent and definately has the size.

I was soooo excited on draft day when they picked Cottam. There was not way I thought he would be available in the 3rd round. So many of us on this board were so pleased on draft day and after last night I'm even more pleased. No way did I think Flowers, Cottam, Charles and Franklin would look that good in their first preseason game.

Not as raw as some people think. He was not a hidden gem waiting to be discovered he was well known by NFL teams. I watched him in the rookie draft camp and he was receiving a lot of attention.

It is just hard to get a ball to a TE in college. Hell there were some games where Rucker o or #45 for Missouri only got looked at 3 or 4 times

I liked what I saw out of Will Franklin last night. This guy might prove to be the next surprise wide receiver. He certainly appears to have Brody Croyle's trust very early.

He's only a shock to non-MU fans.

He's got the speed and nature to be a solid no 2 guy in the NFL. He should be.

I'm going with Cox.

Plus, I enjoy saying "Hows Mike Cox taste?" :evil:

So, at practice, Niswanger is a Cox blocker that practices beating off Saint-Dic? Maybe opening up a big hole for the Johnson?

Offensive weapon: Jamaal Charles.

He will be a major factor on our third downs. If he wins the return job on kick-offs, we'll see a much better play there as well.

Offensive weapon that will score a few TD's this year because of his size and secrecy: Brad Cottom. Get him and TG in the end zones together and not very many DB's will be able to come down with the ball.

Defensive weapon: Brandon Flowers.

Showed a lot of maturity last night and did pretty good albeit it was a weak Chicago receiving tandem.

Based on the way that Franklin, Price played last night, he might not be?

Bowe and Webb probably are a lock, so B.Sips might need to step it up!!

He needs a spot...

But, Sippio scored the game-winning TD!!

Cottam was drafted for the sole purpose of hoisting LJ in the endzone for the Rock.

08-08-2008, 12:19 PM
its gunna be between price and sippio for the final spot, who do you want and think will win??

i think Sip will win it, but i kinda want Price to win just because he looks a little faster than Sip.

Give him Jeff Webb's spot. He hasn't done much.

I was a Webb fan based on potential.

Price took his chace and shined. He produced. He didn't show why we should have hope for his talent he DID IT.

Caught the ball, scored, showed desire, made plays.

End of story to me.

Keep him at the bottom of the rotation and keep him hungry. But keep him...

So what about Robinson if he ever comes back from injury and can win the return job... does he kick a WR off the roster? I would keep Price and Sippio over Webb.

If our field goal kicker is our secret weapon, then season over. That would be awful, unless he's going to kick 10 field goals each game (and has 60-70 yd range) ...

I mentioned to Warpath (we just watched the replay a few hours ago) that number 52 Kuana - looked pretty good on kickoffs, but totally lost while playing LB - could be the new Scanlon.....

IMO... Franklin will have a solid year if the O-Line stays intact and gells a bit. I believe he'll play above the level expected from a 4th round selection and become a solid #2 WR by seasons end. From what I've seen so far, the depth chart should be Bowe, Franklin, Price, Webb, and a toss-up between Darling and Robinson. The #5 spot will be decided by ST contributions.

I think the depth chart at HB will be the suprise this year. LJ obviously will be the #1 guy. But, Jamal Charles will make one hell of a change of pace back similiar to the Dunn / Alstott combo Tampa had a few years back (Thunder and Lightning). The Chiefs might have shown too much of Dantrell Savage to sneak him onto the practice squad. His performance agaist the Bears will have several clubs looking at him and he'll never clear waivers. I look for the Chiefs to keep him as the #3 HB, cut Battle, and trade Kolby Smith to somebody with a preseason injury befor week 1.

At TE, it's SWEET to see Cottam in there punishing LB in the running game and respectable hands to force teams to take pressure off TG. They'll make the perfect combo for Chan's offense in two TE sets.

At DE, Boone is a failed experiment. He looked like somebody hit the slow motion button when rushing the passer. Brian Johnston better pan out, or our defensive strength could turn out to be out weakness this season. And Hali was getting mauled by their LT time and time again. Even if Dorsey becomes the beast all the experts believe he will, all it takes is one man to shut down Hali. At best, Tamba gets 10 sacks this season if Dorsey collapses the pocket consistantly.

At DT.... We don't have shit outside a hope Dorsey lives up to his potential. The Bears destroyed our interior line first, second, and third string.

At LB, DJ made some pretty sweet plays, yet Goonthur hasn't taught these pussies to stay in their gap and TACKLE. It's basic fundamental football taught in Pop Warner football. This bumping a guy with your shoulder shit and expecting him to just fall down is bullcrap. If the experienced vets are worried about an injury by wrapping up and driving their shoulders into their gut, then put the rookies in there who are hungry to EARN their position.

At Safty, Pollard better be looking over his shoulder, because Morgan knows how to tackle and deliver a hit that makes WR's regret catching the ball over the middle.

At CB, Flowers looks to be what we expected out of the draft and Carr might take over Surtains position by mid season. Patricks lost a couple steps and needs to be demoted to nickle as soon as Carr is ready to step up.
