This thread is a combination of the following 3 threads...

AUSTINCHIEF- *************************************
ok, I have mentioned before that I would love to see Runyan in KC...

I decided to start my own thread about it... because... well... I can.

So, here are my reasons why...

#1 all the obvious reasons... he is a pro bowler, proven player, definite upgrade, etc etc

#2 another fairly obvious one... Ndukwe would be better used at RG and this would let him move there.

#3 now we get to the good stuff... ON THE FIELD he is a nasty, mean, dirty S.O.B.

#4 OFF THE FIELD, he is a stand up guy, nice etc...

IF he can give us 2 solid years, he is well worth the investment until we can groom someone to replace him... MOST IMPORTANTLY he sets a perfect example of what our linemen of the future should aspire to be.

Runyan is ready to roll
Posted by Mike Florio on September 8, 2009 1:33 PM ET
As the regular season approaches, a guy who has been on the field every Sunday since 1997 still doesn't have a job.

But, by all indications, he will soon.

Per a league source, tackle Jon Runyan has been cleared to play after offseason microfracture surgery to repair an injured knee.

We're told that three teams are interested in Runyan. According to the source, Runyan rejected an opportunity to sign a contract last week because he didn't want to play for the team in question.

Oakland Raiders? We're looking at you.

Given the rule that guarantees a vested veteran's salary if he's on the Week One roster, look for Runyan to do a deal after the first games are played.

But if there are multiple teams in the mix, the one that's willing to step up and sign him now could be the one to get him.

Except for the Raiders.

I imagine we're one of the three teams that are interested, but were we the one team Runyan told to "Fuck off."?

I really doubt he rejected the chiefs. Players seem to like Pioli. I mean, it's not like he had to negotiate a contract with Carl Petersen whom players knew was a cheapass. Playing for Haley, while he may be a hardass at least isn't a no-winning loser slouch like Sperm Edwards.

Not addressing RT:

Our interior linemen are garbage. We don't have a starting caliber TE, RB, #2-3 WRs, or FB.

And we don't know if we have anything more than #2-4 QBs on the roster.

All this aside, the offense is really close.

Light years? No.

And a solid RT that solidifies the edge could give you as many as 3 or 4 more wins because now your quarterback can set up in the pocket and go through his reads and make better decisions. Football is generally a chain reaction and when you look at this teams biggest problem it's protection from the right side. It doesn't matter if you have Tom Brady back there if he's getting his ass kicked on every drop back.

A solid right tackle could be the difference from this team being 4-12 to 8-8.

What pocket?

The center and RG are getting abused.

Getting serviceable play from the RT in only part of the equation, and isn't likely to amount much in the win column.

It might keep us from going through 3 QB's instead of 2, but until the other 2 weak spots are addressed, it's not going to matter much. Guys are still pressuring the QB up the middle.

DBOSHO
09-08-2009, 02:36 PM
if we had a capable #2 wr and a good R T we would be a pretty good offense. we have a qb who can make all the throws when he has time, we have 2 pretty good rbs, and a reciever who is close to being elite. sounds similar to atlanta of last year to me.

If our QB can get any time to throw, I think there will be targets.

The only good thing that I can see happening from getting Runyan to play RT.....is that Ndukwe can move to RG where I think he's better suited. We still need to find a replacement for Niswanger though. That dude is fucking garbage.

Adding Runyon gives us how many wins?I disagree. It depends on how well Runyon plays.

a good RT and #2 wr opens up the passing game to a decent level. A decent passing game opens up the running game to a decent level. Especially for Charles who could run draws and screens off the passing game.

This makes the offense decent

A decent offense takes some pressure off of a defense with some potiential to be decent.

I contest that a quality RT and a decent #2 receiver makes us a competitive team. Not ready for the playoffs, but competitive.

At least we wouldn't be a joke if we added 2 quality players at RT and WR.

Yes, light years.

Adding Runyon doesn't stop Rudy and the TE of the day from being decidedly below average. The OLine is a shambles. And I think this team will endure the "culture of losing" for at least another season, before things are in place for the turnaround.

We win 3 w/o Runyon.

We win 4 w/ Runyon.

True.

But at this point in Runyan's career, after this microfracture in his knee, who's to say he's any better than what we have?

Signing him MIGHT solve our RT problem.

IMO, there's just as good a chance it won't.

I'd honestly sign him to a one year deal and let him battle it out with O'Connell for the starting job. I would much rather do that then neglect the RG position by keeping Ndukwe at RT. Goff is horrible...and so is Niswanger.

A 4 win difference?

ROFL

All a defense would have to do is attack the center or right guard instead of RT. One (average) RT isn't going to be able to block everything to the right of Brian Waters. Which is what is needed at this point. If you've been watching at all this preseason, you'd see that the OLine has serious issues and it's not just RT by any means.

Dicky McElephant

I'm not expecting much either. I'm looking to sign him to one year deal in hopes that he can at least help keep Cassel alive back there for the year. We're still:

2 WRs
1 TE
1 OC
2 OG
1 OT
1 RB

away from being good.

TheGuardian
09-08-2009, 02:46 PM

We win 3 w/o Runyon.

We win 4 w/ Runyon.

I don't care if it's Runyan or whoever, the point is a right tackle that can solidify that edge is worth more than 1 win because of the impact on the overall offense. That's simply a fact if your achilles heel is the right tackle spot. If your quarterback can setup in the pocket and your WR's can get down the field then it opens up the playbook more and production increases. Now you've moved that 8th man from the box back out of it and the running game improves. A weak link on the edge of the line will kill every offense.

So light years? No.

We should just find some old lady, sign her for the rookie minimum and then push her down to the ground before every snap. The defense would have to at least step over her sobbing body--and that would be a drastic improvment over what we've had on the right side of the line for a couple of years.

Here is the part about John Runyan

Tennessee cornerback Cortland Finnegan would prefer to avoid Eagles offensive tackle Jon Runyan (above). "He's a nasty player," Finnegan says of the 6-7, 330-pound Runyan.
Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan is regarded as a fearless player, aggressive in coverage and against the run. Ask him about a nightmare scenario, and it doesn't take him long to come up with one involving a notorious Philadelphia Eagles tandem.
"A screen with Jon Runyan with [Brian] Westbrook behind him," he said. "One-on-one with Runyan with Westbrook behind him for a touchdown. Oh my goodness. I know I am going to have to go through him if it's for a touchdown. I'm just thinking about what body part I am going to use that could be injured. Shoulder? Neck? Back? Those three things I would be highly worried about with Runyan.

"I think if you go low on Runyan, he may drop the knee somewhere. So I think you have to stay high and just let him baptize you. That's probably what I would do. You know when you go backwards and your head hits first and you wake up as if somebody baptized you or blessed you? I think that would be Runyan right there, all day, every day."
Philadelphia's Runyan, the only active player in the league who suited up for the Houston Oilers, is in his 13th season. Finnegan has played against the Eagles only once, his rookie season in 2006, and encountered Runyan just once in that game.
"He plays the game at a high level, he's a nasty player," Finnegan said of the 6-7, 330-pound Runyan. "He got his hands on me when we played Philly and he threw me about 25 yards away from the play, and the play wasn't even around me. So I just know if he got his hands on me and he was the lead blocker on a screen that it could be detrimental to my health."

Let's get him signed. He has been a productive player in the league. I'm sure he is close to done, but if he can buy us at least a year so we can look at the OL again next offseason, I'm all for it.

Not to mention, having a veteran that has had success in the league could be good for guys like O'Calligan and Richardson.

We are light years from being a decent offense.

Runyon might be a step in the right direction. The rest of the OLine is still pretty horrible.

Adding Runyon gives us how many wins?

Its not about wins its about non killed QBs

At this time of year, you've really got to lower your expectations. There's a reason a lot of these players have been cut and are still available....You're just going to have to deal with the fact that every player coming in isn't flawless.

Personally, I applaud Pioli's efforts at trying to shore up a glaring problem area in the efforts of not having our brand new mint QB in a bodybag by Week 2. It's a "quick fix", but again.....Week 1 is 5 days away.

O'Callaghan is purely a right tackle. He'll get the QB killed if you put him on the left side.

The biggest difference between Runyan and Sackintosh is that Runyan can still block his a$$ off when it comes to run plays. At this point in time, we have to do what we can when it comes to pass blocking. I would still take Runyan pass blocking than Sackintosh!

You have to consider that he played most of the season on the knee injury he needed the surgery for. It wasn't like he blew out his knee all of a sudden, it was an ongoing problem he dealt with.

But with that in mind, I don't think it should be a huge surprise if he doesn't pass his physical.

ok, I have mentioned before that I would love to see Runyan in KC...

I decided to start my own thread about it... because... well... I can.

So, here are my reasons why...

#1 all the obvious reasons... he is a pro bowler, proven player, definite upgrade, etc etc

#2 another fairly obvious one... Ndukwe would be better used at RG and this would let him move there.

#3 now we get to the good stuff... ON THE FIELD he is a nasty, mean, dirty S.O.B.

#4 OFF THE FIELD, he is a stand up guy, nice etc...

IF he can give us 2 solid years, he is well worth the investment until we can groom someone to replace him... MOST IMPORTANTLY he sets a perfect example of what our linemen of the future should aspire to be.

But with that in mind, I don't think it should be a huge surprise if he doesn't pass his physical.

Even if those were the eventual number of sacks, Damion "Spin Cycle" McIntosh let plenty of rushers through over and above his sack total. (like, all of them) Whether that man got a sack, a hurry, a knockdown, forced a bad throw, was blocked by a RB, made the QB scramble, etc. - all those things are not included in the sack total, but still reflect poorly on him.

So just like how you might come to believe McIntosh is a decent pass protector as some around here do (GoChiefs), you could only get that impression by googling stats and not knowing anything else.

Quotes from Strahan and Runyan



"Holds a lot," said Strahan of Runyan, laughing. "Extremely strong. Competitive, and probably the one guy that I've played who probably stokes my fire just about more than anyone else." "It's not holding until it gets called," Runyan countered. "You can't hold him anyway, because I think his jersey is painted on."

"The biggest thing," Runyan said, "is to get hands on people. I have athletic ability, but I'm not the most athletic tackle out there. I was big in math and sciences in school; those things came easy to me. I just play the geometry game, play the angles, get in front of them and take away their angles."

At this time of year, you've really got to lower your expectations. There's a reason a lot of these players have been cut and are still available....You're just going to have to deal with the fact that every player coming in isn't flawless.

Personally, I applaud Pioli's efforts at trying to shore up a glaring problem area in the efforts of not having our brand new mint QB in a bodybag by Week 2. It's a "quick fix", but again.....Week 1 is 5 days away.

Yup. Keep in mind that the Eagles have a long, long, long history of not signing players over 30.

The problem with signing Runyan this late is that he is guaranteed out of shape, and will need weeks to even think about competing IMO. A guy like O'Callaghan has been with a team, practicing and playing with a team. Same goes for a guy like Langston Walker. Runyan if signed, will take quite awhile to make an impact IMO.

JKSJFD:KFJKFJDFKD!!!!! Kyle Turley was the 270-pounds of bad back when he played for Kansas City. He wasn't the 305-pound helmet throwing monster for the Saints when he was in KC.

On June 6, 2005, Turley was released by the Rams and spent the entire 2005 season out of football due to the effects of sciatic nerve damage that also atrophied his right leg. After initially dropping 65 pounds from his 300-pound frame, Turley had gotten back to around the 265 mark in hopes of switching positions, possibly moving to defensive end, and relieving pressure on his back.

On May 5, 2006, Turley began a 3-day tryout with the Miami Dolphins. Hoping to rejoin the NFL as a tight end, reported to minicamp weighing 260 pounds.


Kansas City Chiefs
On June 11, 2006, it was announced that Turley signed a two-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. Turley has regained his previous weight and has been so impressive in training camp that had been expected to be the opening-day starting right tackle.

Orange, shut the fuck up. I don't care what he was listed at. He was nowhere close to 300 pounds. Consequently, he couldn't drive anyone off the ball and got pushed into the quarterback half the time by bull rushers.

The situation in no way compares to Runyan.

On June 6, 2005, Turley was released by the Rams and spent the entire 2005 season out of football due to the effects of sciatic nerve damage that also atrophied his right leg. After initially dropping 65 pounds from his 300-pound frame, Turley had gotten back to around the 265 mark in hopes of switching positions, possibly moving to defensive end, and relieving pressure on his back.

On May 5, 2006, Turley began a 3-day tryout with the Miami Dolphins. Hoping to rejoin the NFL as a tight end, reported to minicamp weighing 260 pounds.


Kansas City Chiefs
[B]On June 11, 2006, it was announced that Turley signed a two-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. Turley has regained his previous weight and has been so impressive in training camp that had been expected to be the opening-day starting right tackle.[B]

Of course, I have NO idea how much he weighed when he was on top of you in bed.

I don't see anything about Kyle Orton in there.

Turley was trying out of teams as a TE when we signed him as a RT. He was playing light with us and they tried getting him to put weight back on which his back just couldn't handle.. Turley doesn't compare to Runyan in anyway.

Hey all... just getting home from work. I am late to the party.

Sooo.... Runyan IS in town for a workout? This isn't just pure speculation stuff?

Because if I need to call my buddy, the real estate agent, and find out if Runyan has bought a house, or a Z-Man from Okie-Joes, I can do that. I have that kind of power.

But seriously- he's in town?

And if it's on Wikipedia, it must be true.... but Turley was a disaster in KC, I'll grant you. However, he NEVER EVER NOT ONCE threw a left handed pick in the end zone.

Jon Runyan could be close to landing work.

A league source said that the veteran offensive tackle is in Kansas City right now for a workout.

He has recently been cleared to return to football following knee surgery.

Carl would do something like this.
Why didn't we just keep Carl?
Did he play for UCLA? Is Carl still here?
Carl never struck out this many times in 6 months.
Carl>Pioli x 1000000000000000

And on and on it goes, where it stops, nobody knows.

We could sign the 03 Chiefs O-line and the same handful of girls would bitch and complain about it. It never gets old. Oh, and Pioli must be on vacation permanently.

Kyle Turley
Height: 6-5 Weight: 306 Age: 33
Born: 9/24/1975 Provo , UT
College: San Diego State
Experience: 9 Seasons


He played light for the Chiefs because he was old and brokedown... like Runyan.


... er, except not nearly as old as Runyan. Sorry.

A few big differences.

Turley was forced to lose weight because he had major back injuries and there was fear that he couldn't carry a heavy weight anymore.

Turley was never really that good. Even in New Orleans and St. Louis, he had a few games where he played well and quite a few where he was flat-out dominated.

It's a gamble for sure. But it's not nearly the same kind of ill-advised gamble as relying on Kyle Turley.

This is a wise move. I think Runyan's probably a broke dick dog, but if he's not, he'd be a major upgrade. We still have four OL spots that need long term solutions, but if it helps Cassel survive this year, it's worth it.

I'm not expecting much from him, but if he proves me wrong, it would be a good move.

Now we wait to see if we actually sign him.

Is he a diehard Eagles fan or just casual? Sometimes fans dont have a clue what they are talking about so they talk up a guy with a famous name because he doesnt know any better. Runyan did allow as many sacks as McIntosh last year as far as I know.

Turner doesn't really have to do anything to be better than LJ, to be honest.

Johnson has fallen off the cliff is no longer a starting caliber RB in this league.

The only problem with LJ is the line is no good anymore. This is the case with most RB's Give them a solid line and they will get tons of yards.

It looks like Jon Runyan was just cleared in late August to start running. I would think that Runyan would be pretty far off from contributing in a starting manner until later in the season.

Runyan would be a good player to sign, but not an automatic fix as he hasn't even been in pads since the final Philadelphia game last season. He has just been rehabbing his knee. I honestly don't think we will have a consistent line until after the bye week.

Which means we probably won't sign him until after the Raven's game. He won't get guaranteed contract that way either.
