No No there was an article written on Ryan where they gave him a board and a marker and expected him to break plays down and he basically did it without an issue like it was nothing and said "got anything else?"

Danny said if he had done that for the Chiefs in his view they'd have felt he was to cocky.

And the best thing is that they set this up so nicely, we have tons of cap room, it allows Hunt to bring excitement back just before the stadium upgrades are in place, and we should have high draft picks in each round.

Sadly, the Chiefs will promote from within and wonder why we are pissed off.

Yes - this total hypothetical is so very damning and "spot on". Back in the real world Herm has regularly talked about liking confidence and a degree of cockyness in his players. He particularly talked about this as a factor with Bowe and Flowers.

Too much has been made of his failings as a coach/game manager and not enough has been said about his personnel decisions.

If shitty = injury prone, then I'd agree with you.

Otherwise, you're just wasting your breath.

The guy could get new coaches, turn into a 10 sack a year guy, and you'd find some way to tear him apart, just to save face.

BTW, what's wrong with your boy Cromartie?

Without a pass rush to help him, he looks ridiculously average this year.

Exactly what I expected.

When healthy, the guy puts up 8 sacks a year from the off-end, with shitty coaching.

Only someone with a hard-on for him, like yourself, would not expect those numbers or better when healthy and with better coaching.

But hey, hate away.

The guy averaged 8 sacks a year, playing injured for the past year and a half, on the off-end, with absolute shitty coaching, and he's already a shitty pick.

Or, I'm just not going to judge a guy who's played 40 games, with half of them being played injured, or out of position, with shitty coaching. I'm also not the guy who has bashed him since the day he was picked, and am going to do everything I can to not look like a tool, either.

8-10 sacks a year is perfectly acceptable for an LDE. I'd be willing to bet it would rank at or above what the average LDE posts for a season.

Hali's seen a sharp decline this season. He has 1, I repeat, 1 sack through 9 games.

Hali's on pace for 2 sacks this season.

I give him full credit for what he's done thus far in his career with one of the league's best DE's (Jared Allen) on the other side.

That is a completely retarded statement. I'm no Tamba backer, but you can't fault a guy for being played out of position. Though that is only half of the problem. The lack of any pass rush from the right side has hurt him thus far on the LE.

That being said, I think we could have done better with the 20th pick that year.

Dude. Please don't fall into the Mecca trap. You're too good a poster for that.

First, he's played hurt for close to half of his career.

Second, he wasn't drafted to play RDE.

Third, I'd like to see how many teams have a 4-3 LDE with more than 8 sacks.

If you're getting 12-14 from your RDE, and 8-10 from your LDE, then things are going well.

But asking the guy to play out of position because we have no other options, and then holding it against him is retarded, IMO.

This isn't exclusive to Hali either. Anyone who doesn't think that this staff couldn't be retarding the growth of young players is naive.

Talent only gets you so far. Having adequate coaching, from technique to scheme can, and does make a huge difference as well.

For the record, who SHOULD we have taken with that pick?

Even with the advantage of hindsight, there are only two other guys that would have been of value there, without a massive reach. (at the time)

Santonio Holmes and Davin Joseph.

honestly? with COMPLETE hindsight? you trade up a few picks and get cromartie.

It's one thing to play if he can still perform, if you're injured and play and you can't do anything all you do then is just get your ass kicked and make it worse.

Be honest, you'd be bitching either way.

If he sits, he's a pussy, if he plays, he's hurting the team.

Joseph is probably the best player.....DeMeco Ryans I guess.....that entire draft was pretty blah.

I'll rail that Pollard pick much harder than the Hali one, I just think Hali was drafted to high, if they wanted an end I'd have taken Kiwanuka before Hali.

yeah yeah...he played injured most of last year, and put up respectable numbers.

This year, he only has what, 2-3 games at his position?

I don't even hate Hali the Chiefs have just repeatedly taken these guys with no speed off the edge, Hali isn't oversized he just isn't all that quick or fast, McBride is an oversized end.

Where is the speed? You can't have a bunch of big slow ends and expect to get a pass rush.

He has zero sacks since being returned to his natural position, but don't let that get in the way of your argument.



And that helps your argument?

BTW, I'm pretty sure he has 1 sack since being moved back to the LE.

Thanks, Mecca.

Only on ChiefsPlanet do people pine for a guy that wasn't available 2.5 years after the fact.

And what has Cromartie proven?

That if he has a pass rush to help him, he can be phenomenal?

That without one, he's average at best?

He looked pretty quick his rookie year.

Granted, he was healthy then.

Every injury he's had has been lower-body related.

I've honestly yet to figure it out, Terrell Owens is made out to be the devil around here why Jared Allen was loved.....that made no sense to me. I understand disliking people like LJ or Allen who legit do stupid shit but TO just talks big deal.

I remember growing up how much Dale Carter was hated by this fan base.

i never knew ANYONE (and i know lots of fans) who hated Dale Carter.

Hali needs to get healthy and do something, that said he won't do shit until we get a real force on the OTHER side.

First, he's played hurt for close to half of his career.

Which is certainly taken into consideration when players and post-draft expectations are bandied in NFL circles.

I have no quams about the fact that he's played injured quite often during his short career, but I also realize he's been healthy enough to make 41 consecutive starts. Given that fact I can't exactly excuse his failings.

Second, he wasn't drafted to play RDE.

No argument there, but then I'd ask you explain his problems with getting the QB on the ground since he was moved back to LDE.

This isn't exclusive to Hali either. Anyone who doesn't think that this staff couldn't be retarding the growth of young players is naive.

He was perfectly productive his first two seasons as a Defensive End.
He's struggled mightily this year. The one constant? His coach... Krumrie, hired the same year he was drafted.

I think the point is when you are a 1st round pick, taken in the top 20 players you shouldn't need another player to be able to perform.

He's a corner, that would be like saying Justin Tuck should suck right now because Strahan and Umenyiora are gone, comparing the reliance on other players of a DE and CB isn't even remotely the same.

flip flop much?

like mcbride yesterday, hell i sat right behind him and he NEVER NOT ONCE moved his right arm coming off the field. or even while sitting on the bench that i saw. why even put him out there.

That doesn't surprise me one bit.

There's a huge majority of fans (especially in this forum) that expect their beloved athletes to be "humble".

Well CB is a completely different position when it comes to what other players mean to how he does.

Cromartie isn't making the plays he did last year but he doesn't blow, a DE is the guy who is suppose to perform to make the other guys look better.

The first part is hindsight because that's how the question was asked..

The 2nd part was how I felt going into that draft, I liked Kiwanuka more than I liked Hali.

You're right. He had one in the Jets game.

Couldn't pee a drop from RDE.

I think the Chiefs oganization is still in better shape than the Raiders. That would be worse.

Being better than the worst professional sports franchise in this country isn't necessarily saying very much.
