After having LJ, Battle, Warfield and a young Jared Allen I would think we'd welcome that as fans. These guys are leaders and that will make the team better.

No, they weren't self righteous. They just led. I could post all the links but I'm too lazy. Most all of them were team captains or recognized by their conferences.

Given who DJ has had to deal with as coaches and DC's I think this is year he will have a good chance at putting it together with Romeo. Robinson, Gunther and Pedergast all were less than good at their job. I expect different from Romeo.

Why would we want or need TWO OLB's, and how would you expect us to get McCluster any later than we did? Supposedly the Iggles were hot on his nuts.

I'll take a drunk Jared Allen over any of the garbage we drafted today just because these guys we picked "are nice" and can walk our grandmothers across street. Who gives a fuck. I want talent that can show wins, I don't care what the guy does off the field in his private life.

Mecca
04-23-2010, 10:24 PM
I'd give them 2 OLB's because you don't pass on pass rushers when you don't have any...

Either way you can flip it out a bit but we still shouldn't have gotten an NT and a OLB out of this.

Iggles were going to take him in the spot after us had we not drafted him. So if we wanted him it was either do it then or not at all.

are you ****s really content with going into the season with DERRICK JOHNSON, DEMORRIO WILLIAMS, MIKE VRABEL AND TAMBI HALI AS OUR LINEBACKERS? ARE YOU NUTS? I can't even name an NFL team with a 3-4 defense with a shittier linebacker core than that.


there was all this linebacker talent (outside and inside) and I watched the Chiefs pass on it, and the players we passed on are guys that are clearly better or at least have upside than what we currently have at the positions. you cant argue that.

McCluster wouldn't have been there and Kindle fell for a reason. I wouldn't have used our first 2nd rounder on a dude who needs to have microfracture surgery. You're just listing notable names anyone could read about on a draft website.

I'm sure Kindle and Cody will both completely suck seeing as they went to a team that always drafts well.

I'm sorry we took a gadget player with a high 2 when our team has holes in core positions, that's brilliant.

Cody is a lazy fuck who will eat his way out of the league in a couple years, passing on him is the right call. Griffen hasn't even been drafted yet so I'm not sure what you're complaining about there. Kindle will probably be a good player but its either him or McCluster, you can't have both.

In other words, this list of yours is stupid as shit.

I'm not compltely happy with this draft, but the Ravens are in a completely different situation. They can use picks on an injured player and a specialist who will only play on run downs.

I think you're off here, Mecca.

First off, McCluster's been nothing other than a playmaker. He's a freaking stud. I think he was probably taken a little high and considering the Chiefs have other needs, I was a little surprised by the selection. But there's no denying that the guy is a playmaker in the mold of Warrick Dunn, Darren Sproles and Wes Welker. If he comes in and contributes like Welker and Dunn, no one will give a shit if someone else was on the board.

Secondly, Arenas isn't exactly a midget. He's 5'9, 199 and was a serious playmaker for Alabama. He'll start as the nickel immediately and will likely force Carr to nickel down the road. He's an electrifying returner and Gruden compares him to Ronde Barber, who is barely 5'10 and 184.

While I agree that I expected the Chiefs to address the middle of the defense, I'm not at all bummed out that these guys were the selections.

The Chiefs needed leaders and playmakers and they got them in the second round.

Mecca
04-23-2010, 10:43 PM
Didn't we just draft a CB you know, last year?

It doesn't matter how good Berry is if all he's doing is tackling RB's 8 yards up field.

in a perfect world, weis works his magic on cassel and you're correct about our second rounders (and shaun smith somehow becomes a great nose tackle).

I just have the nagging feeling in my gut that we aren't that lucky. :(

The Chiefs needed playmakers alright.

At OLB. And ILB. And NT. And WR2. And SS.

Instead, we get a guy who's upside is a slot WR - when there were legit WR's on the board, and another nickle corner, just a year after taking - that's right, a nickle corner.

Don't even get me started on trading up for a fucking TE two goddamn years in a row.

Everson Griffen
Daryl Washington
Koa Misi
Sergio Kindle
Linval Joseph
Sean Lee
Terrence Cody
Major Wright
Chad Jones
Donald Butler

All guys we passed on at some point in the night.

Take any combination of 3 or 4 guys off that list instead of the players we took, and this defense is fixed for the next decade.

Instead, we still have the worst front 7 in the league.

But we have 2 nickle corners, 3 slot WR's and 4 TE's. Much more important.

Do we still have a 4th? If we can somehow take Campbell and Olsen and maybe a decent LB, all is not lost.

So we'll have two corners under 5'10" at corner?

Uh...I don't see the Chargers, Raiders, or Donx drafting smaller and slower WR's...

I really like what we have done in this draft. I'm not going to pout because it didn't go exactly how I wanted it like some people. McCluster is a playmaker, Arenas is a playmaker, Berry is a playmaker and Jon Asamoah is a great pick at RG for our zone blocking scheme. Tony Moeaki will be a wait and see player, but it is nice to actually have a pass catching TE to be part of our offense now.

Arenas won't force Carr out of his starting spot. He was only a "serious playmaker" in college in the return game. He's a middling CB at the pro level, IMO.

Arenas is more of a playmaker than Smith every was, and Smith was a solid college player FWIW.

I like the idea of building a team around character and work ethic. This is necessary for the chemistry of the team. A few bad apples in the locker room can wreak havoc on the chemistry of the entire team. I'm not saying it isn't possible to control one or two egos, but the whole process is much easier with a majority of good character guys and a team-first attitude. I'm not saying that I 100% agree with all of our picks thus far(damn a good run-stuffing NT would have been nice), but I think it is wise to put some consideration into character when looking to upgrade whether it be through free agency or the draft.

You know, the CB the Donx took that we bash them unmercifully for.I don't know if we'd bash them quite as hard as we do if they'd have spent the 37 on him straight up, rather than giving up a first this year to draft him at 37. Although they are Denver, so we might bash them regardless.
