I believe he is building this team the correct way with solid FA's signed and not reaching for draft picks. So many people will say he reached in the 2nd round but those players will shore up a weak return game. Not everything will be fixed in 2 years so sit tight and see what happens next year. Year 3 is the year we should really see the results of what he has done so far. In my opinion he has gotten playmakers for a team that was really lacking!

how the fuck is he not reaching for draft picks? tyson jackson? fuck, pretty much everybody in our 2009 draft? our second round today? our third round except for asomoah? fuck. he's done nothing BUT reach. he's admitted he doesn't know the meaning of grading a prospect by draft--that much is fucking obvious. his end can't get here fast enough for me.

Yeah we just traded up to get a tight end that might not have gotten drafted and we've taken Berry (great pick) and a midget nickel/dime corner. It's unreal how bad it is. WE needed a nose tackle and outside rush backer or inside backer in the worst way. This draft, outside of Berry, has been another complete piece of shit.

+ Better returns leading to better field position.

+ Two starter-caliber running backs in Charles and Jones.

+ Bowe, Chambers, and our new slot receiver Dexter McWelker.

+ Two new interior linemen with NFL starter experience in Weigman and Lilja plus a top rookie OG for competition.

+ The second year in a new offensive system. The first with a dedicated and heralded OC and the first where it will be in place for the entire offseason and training camp.

= I'm looking forward to some significant offensive improvements this year and a real opportunity for Matt Cassel to prove himself worthy or unworthy as an NFL starter.

On defense, the line is filled with high round (meaning valuable) draft picks who have had shitty coaches and a couple of different systems in the last couple of years. A new set of coaches will hopefully get more out of the raw talent that's been accumulated.

The defensive backfield should be significantly upgraded with Berry and there will be competition for the other starters from both this year's draft and last year's draft.

Linebacker is still a weakness, IMO, but there was a lot of untapped potential in DJ last year so hopefully the new coaching staff can get that potential onto the field.

Sigh.

We had the potential to get much, much stronger up the middle on defense. And we failed.

My ideal 2nd round would have been some combination of Tate, Cody, and Kindle. That being said (and it's been said many times before), this team has a lot of needs, primarily playmakers. We had 1. If these guys pan out like they're supposed to, we'll have a nice trio of playmakers.

And you can't be mad about getting the second rated guard in the 3rd round.

THE SEASON IS ALREADY OVER!!!!!!!!!You think you're being sarcastic, but you're actually spot on.

This team needed a homerun draft in the worst way to make up for last year's abortion. It had the potential to be the best draft this team has ever seen, and in typical Pioli fashion he fucks it up and takes a bunch of retards over the players that are cornerstones of great teams.

I think this year's draft is much better than last year. Admittedly, that's not saying much. At least I think all of the players drafted so far will contribute next year and I see several starters: Berry, McCluster as slot WR, Arenas as nickel corner/punt returner, Asamoah at OG and Moeki at TE.

My only knock on this draft is that we didn't have enough picks to fill all of our holes.

I was very impressed watching McCluster in college this season. Without looking it up, I think he tore it up against Tennessee.

I'd be okay with taking him the late 3rd or 4th, and realize he has some playmaking capability, but this team needs some basic starters. At 36 he was a HUGE reach on a team that is desperate need of starters. Bad, bad move. But, not nearly as bad as the 50th pick.

Charlie Weis must have :(a) no pull whatsoever, or (b) thinks his players suck ass, or (c) both. To pass up Tate both times and not grab Clausen before 48? Wow.

I agree 100%. We have no playmakers outside of Jammal and Flowers. McCluster is playmaker, Berry is a play maker. We needed that nasty guard and we needed another good corner. If anyone thinks we couldn't use a good TE, guess again. Cottam and Pope? Neither can block worth a shit. Nothing wrong with adding talent to the roster. Yes we need LB's and a NT in my opinion but we need alot of upgrades that this draft won't fix. I think he's done pretty good so far.

The McCluster pick really is fine. So is taking the guard. But if we had packaged the 3rd and 4th to move up and take Kindle and Cody we're kings of the draft.

Here is the real problem. Even if McCluster turns into Wes Welker we're still soft in the middle and outside of Hali have no pass rush. So the defense got no better today in the front 7. Berry will make the back 4 very very good. But teams are still going to line up and gash us for 7 a carry and won't need to pass. Now Berry's talents as a play maker are nullified because of it.

It's stupid on a whole different level of stupid.

Here is all you need to know about Fat Scott's "crucial" draft thus far...

In perhaps the deepest second round in recent NFL Draft history, the Chiefs somehow managed to find a way to draft two players who will NOT be starters next season.

That is astounding for a team with so many needs.

I think Cam Thomas is still available at NT. We could also take some fat slow OL (like Colin Brown) and turn him into a NT. All you need to be a NT in this defense is be 6'5" and weigh 330. You clog the middle. Lots of slow OLmen that could do that.

Norwood might be a good OLB in the 5th round. There is still a decent RT left to take. Not sure where we get a good ILB. Maybe from the Raiders?

I'll take a shot. We need a speed receiver in the slot position in the worst way. We need a returner in the worst way. We need a G in the worst way.

Yes there were decisions I probably would have made differently but the fact is last year we all bitched cause we had no speed in the slot, no one who could return worth a fuck and no one who could play G. Among other things.

I'll take a shot. We need a speed receiver in the slot position in the worst way. We need a returner in the worst way. We need a G in the worst way.

Yes there were decisions I probably would have made differently but the fact is last year we all bitched cause we had no speed in the slot, no one who could return worth a fuck and no one who could play G. Among other things.

Eh, I guess I'm so over it that at this point, I'm not surprised nor am I bothered by the selections.

I thought Pioli would address the middle of the defense: NT, ILB and at least one rushbacker. Instead, he went with playmakers and very solid guard selection.

Regardless of what any of us wanted, everyone of those picks addresses a serious need. And if Moeaki can stay healthy, (something he wasn't able to do in college), he could be a steal.

I give this draft so far a C, which is much better than the F- I gave him in 2009.

If he can snag Eric Olsen or George Selvie or Myron Rolle in the fifth, I'll give him a B.

Thank you! That is what I have been trying to say. Yes, I wish we would have gone for a NT at least. And we still might. But as you have correctly pointed out, everyone we drafted was a position that was a sore spot last year. And every single one of them except maybe the G will be on the field this year with a chance to make an impact in ways we could not last year. We just have too many sore spots right now is all. I gave it a B- but trading up to get the injury-prone TE brings it down to a C.

We still don't have speed in the slot. The guy is 170 pounds dripping wet and barely broke 4.6 in his 40. (4.58, IIRC) We used a valuable pick on a guy who's upside is a WR3. When there were legit WR's on the board, not part-timers like McCluster.

Why do we need a returner? Oh, that's right, we've cut the one we drafted LAST year, TWICE. A 2nd round pick used in a deep draft for a nickle CB who's smaller and slower than the nickle we took LAST YEAR.

Asomoah was a great pick.

I think Cam Thomas is still available at NT. We could also take some fat slow OL (like Colin Brown) and turn him into a NT. All you need to be a NT in this defense is be 6'5" and weigh 330. You clog the middle. Lots of slow OLmen that could do that.

That is one of the stupidest things I've ever heard.

Reaper, Fuck you. I repeatedly said before the draft I thought they should take Berry and I said why. Now, after the fact, its a "no-brainer". Well, not on CP it wasn't. There was plenty of people talking about Clausen or trying to do something else. As far as McCluster and Arenas, a huge problem for the Chiefs was there had very little speed, unless you like Cassel having options like Bobby Wade and Lance Long. Now with Charles, Thomas. Bowe, Chambers, and McCluster, a real OC like Charlie Weis can do something, especially with the improvements made on the line. And Arenas gives you more athletism both in the return game and helps in the secondary. Getting the solid RG in the 3rd was just fine and the TE has been graded as a terrific blocker. He also looks like a very good receiver. Its a fine draft so far. I wouldn't say its top notch but its certainly a B+ Anybody with any credibility that actually gets paid for a living to know has given positive feedback.. Maybe if you stopped getting ALL your football opinions from CP once in a while you would maybe feel different than you do.

Well, here is the reality of the draft, some sure picks don't pan out, some guys you don't expect to cut you cut, some guys you took as a role player late end up being your best starter. Right now everything we have done is on paper. None of these guys have put pads on. For all we know Arenas goes all Dante on the league. McCluster might just be a Wes Welker. And Berry might end up being a total bust. Moeki or whatever his name is may play 4 years straight without an injury. Asamoah could beat out Lilja and be an impact player. We don't know and won't know until they get on the field and play. Coaches see things we don't and understand what we don't and know their plans for future moves that we don't.

I would have liked to have seen some different positions drafted tonight but the coaches thought otherwise. So the guys we drafted deserve a chance to prove the coaches right or wrong.

Well, you aren't thinking clearly, obviously. One may be better at KR's than PR's. One they may have no intention of using as a returner.

Look at how many picks we've made to cover for stupid picks and/or roster decisions over the duration of Pioli's regime.

People keep ignoring the fact that these bad drafts are exponential. A horrifyingly shitty 2009 draft has now led us to yet another 2010 draft which could've been spectacular but will now be no more than mediocre because Pioli had to scramble to fill holes that he and his cronies made. Our failure to pick up a NT, QB, ILB, OLB, RT and legit WR means we'll absolutely make more stupid reach picks in 2011 to cover for this year's stupid reach picks that came as the result of an entire draft based on stupid reach picks in 2009.

It's never 'just one year'. Every year compounds into the next year. Which is why allowing this ****wit "3 years before I evaluate him" is a mistake of astronomical proportions.

I simply cannot wrap my mind around this draft.

Why did we "have" to take Jackson?

I just watched Buffalo get a NT and a 5 tech without using a 1st round pick.


Agree, it seems the same for OL, at least in this town. Unless you grab them in the 1st people seem to think they are dogshit. Isn't the first round pick the easiest? GM's should be making their money in rounds past the 1st.

How many 1st round picks have the Steelers spent on a 3-4 DE in the last 20 years? Top 20 picks?...

How many?...

Ziggy Hood? Maybe that was off the SB victory?

Reaper, Fuck you. I repeatedly said before the draft I thought they should take Berry and I said why. Now, after the fact, its a "no-brainer". Well, not on CP it wasn't. There was plenty of people talking about Clausen or trying to do something else. As far as McCluster and Arenas, a huge problem for the Chiefs was there had very little speed, unless you like Cassel having options like Bobby Wade and Lance Long. Now with Charles, Thomas. Bowe, Chambers, and McCluster, a real OC like Charlie Weis can do something, especially with the improvements made on the line. And Arenas gives you more athletism both in the return game and helps in the secondary. Getting the solid RG in the 3rd was just fine and the TE has been graded as a terrific blocker. He also looks like a very good receiver. Its a fine draft so far. I wouldn't say its top notch but its certainly a B+ Anybody with any credibility that actually gets paid for a living to know has given positive feedback.. Maybe if you stopped getting ALL your football opinions from CP once in a while you would maybe feel different than you do.
A B+? A Fucking B+? Do you have any concept of draft value whatsoever? Fine draft my ass. Thanks for actually making a football post, though.

Apparently you haven't caught on yet that intelligent thought is not welcome here. In order to fit in with the fellowship of the miserable you need to have an almost Austistic like impulse to be negative about everything.

I work with special ed kids does that count?

Well, here is the reality of the draft, some sure picks don't pan out, some guys you don't expect to cut you cut, some guys you took as a role player late end up being your best starter. Right now everything we have done is on paper. None of these guys have put pads on. For all we know Arenas goes all Dante on the league. McCluster might just be a Wes Welker. And Berry might end up being a total bust. Moeki or whatever his name is may play 4 years straight without an injury. Asamoah could beat out Lilja and be an impact player. We don't know and won't know until they get on the field and play. Coaches see things we don't and understand what we don't and know their plans for future moves that we don't.

I would have liked to have seen some different positions drafted tonight but the coaches thought otherwise. So the guys we drafted deserve a chance to prove the coaches right or wrong.

I mean, WTF expected Succup to be one of the best kickers in the league?

Who expected DJ to flop like he has?
Who expected Dorsey not to have quite the impact we expected?
Who expected Charles to be one of the best RB's in the league?

We can go on and on. I am just saying don't put too much into the draft until we see the results.


How dare you bring logic in here!

I will give you this the offense is going to be able to put up alot of ****ing points. On the flip side it is going to have to because the D is a ****ing sieve.

Another factor is that the defense could benefit if the offense has fewer 3 and outs. Last year, the defense often played pretty well early in games only to fall apart late.

I was very impressed watching McCluster in college this season. Without looking it up, I think he tore it up against Tennessee.

I'd be okay with taking him the late 3rd or 4th, and realize he has some playmaking capability, but this team needs some basic starters. At 36 he was a HUGE reach on a team that is desperate need of starters. Bad, bad move. But, not nearly as bad as the 50th pick.

Charlie Weis must have :(a) no pull whatsoever, or (b) thinks his players suck ass, or (c) both. To pass up Tate both times and not grab Clausen before 48? Wow.

The rumor is that the Eagles, a team with a pretty good reputation as far as the draft is concerned, were going to take McCluster at 37. If that's the case, it's not a reach at all. In fact, it's maximum efficiency.

We still don't have speed in the slot. The guy is 170 pounds dripping wet and barely broke 4.6 in his 40. (4.58, IIRC) We used a valuable pick on a guy who's upside is a WR3. When there were legit WR's on the board, not part-timers like McCluster.

Why do we need a returner? Oh, that's right, we've cut the one we drafted LAST year, TWICE. A 2nd round pick used in a deep draft for a nickle CB who's smaller and slower than the nickle we took LAST YEAR.

Asomoah was a great pick.

Trading up for another broke dick TE, however, was not. This franchise has cornered the market on broken TE's - and who doesn't love trading up in back to back years to take a TE?

All tonight proved is that Belichick is the fucking genius, and we got the dipshit who apparently could care less about value, or completely invalidating the picks he made the year before by duplicating them - all while completely ignoring need.

I agree with all of this with the exception of McCluster. He ran a 4.4 at his pro day and almost every NFL coach that has seen this guy says he is explosive and a playmaker. I actually like this pick quite a bit.

The outstanding piece of all this to me is that in two years of drafting, Pioli has yet to draft a Nose Tackle.

1. A+
2a. A
2b. D+
3a. A+
3b. D-

Now in my opinion, if you're going to run anything close to a prototypical 3-4 defense, the NT position is roughly equivilant to the offense's need for a LT. You can win without one, sure, but it's probably going to be a damn struggle, and someone might get hurt in the process.

Where the sh!t is our farging NOSE TACKLE!?!?!?!
