View Full Version : Chiefs McCluster and Arenas were a matched set

Apparently we couldn't break the set and had to select both. I clicked on McCluster's link on CBS and this is what I found.


04/16/2010 - Dexter McCluster has always been more Houdini than halfback. Whenever the former Largo High and University of Mississippi runner has been trapped by a cluster of defenders, he has invariably wriggled out of their reach, leaving a trail of disbelieving players and fans. Javier Arenas has always been able to make people miss. The former Robinson High standout started at cornerback for the University of Alabama, but he made his mark more in the return game, where he could wend around the field as if operated by a joystick. But if there's one thing the two players have been unable to avoid, it's questions about their height. McCluster is 5 feet 8, Arenas 5-9. They are a matched set of minnows, card-carrying members of the runt fraternity in this year's draft class. Though teams have looked at height - or lack thereof - as if it were a physical handicap, McCluster and Arenas have been able to shine because they are a study in little moves made right. And both could be the highest bay area selections in next week's draft. "Size always seems to be the topic of discussion," McCluster said. "But it hasn't been an issue lately. It's definitely something that hasn't stopped me yet. "I just want to have an opportunity, and I'm not going to let anyone down once I get that chance." McCluster, who had individual workouts with the Patriots and Chiefs at Largo High this week, is projected as a mid- to late-second-round pick. - Bob Putnam, St. Petersburg Times

Shit, at nearly 6 foot, I would be one of the tallest Chiefs.

What was the name of the really small guy the Chiefs had in the 60's? Nolan Smith or something like that. I think they called him the Super Nat or Super Flea.

naw that guy sucks. We all know SEC defenses are akin to the Sunbelt Conference. :-) Anybody can make them look stupid week in and week out like Dexter did.
