KEY TO CUTS IS SCHEME, NOT NAME

September 5th – 3:09 PM
When the Chiefs unveil the first version of their 2009 53-man roster (and let me emphasize the word FIRST) sometime within the next two hours, keep in mind that 2009 is not 2008. There will be names left off the list that will surprise fans, big names perhaps.

Many players that Chiefs fans have become familiar with over recent year were brought to Kansas City to run different offensive and defensive schemes. Football talent is indeed football talent, but the way a player fits into an offensive or defensive scheme may be the most important factor in determining the 53-man roster. Good 4-3 players don’t always make good 3-4 players, and vice-a-versa.

Keep in perspective that scheme is important, very important. I’ve got my 53-man roster filled out and I’m sure you do too. Let’s talk about it at 5:00.


BLOG GOES LIVE AT 5:00 PM

September 5th – 11:36 AM
The clock is ticking towards the NFL roster deadline. The Chiefs will announce their transactions in the coming hours. Be sure to come back to this blog from 5-6 PM and chat live about today’s moves using CoverITLive.

WHEELING AND DEALING

September 5th – 7:45 AM
Don’t blink this weekend, you might miss something. After making 13 roster moves (11 cuts and 2 injury designations) this week, the Chiefs still need to come up with 14 more moves today in order to meet the NFL’s 5:00 PM CST deadline for 53-man rosters. It’s all but guaranteed that those 14 moves won’t all consist of the same transaction type.

Sure, the majority of the moves will involve players getting cut, but don’t rule out trades, injury designations or settlements. A number of things can take place, with each transaction leading to a different conclusion. Dominoes will fall, but the direction is anything but determined. Oh, and just when the smoke has cleared “Waiver Wire Sunday” is right around the corner.

Today is a day all about the numbers game. Below are the essentials for any Chiefs fan heading into “Cut-Down Saturday.”

The following two tables represent how many players at each position the Patriots (Pioli), Cardinals (Haley) and Chiefs kept over the two seasons. The third table lists the amount of players remaining on Kansas City’s roster, by position. Keep in mind that there are a few players who could factor into injury designations – LB Zach Thomas, TE Jake O’Connell and DT Derek Lokey (WR Devard Darling and RB Kolby Smith do not factor into the below list).
