He apologized for mowing the lawn, dumbass. He wasn't conceding to you, you ****ing dolt.

All you've done is make excuses and claimed you've won the argument.

You're a delusional troll.

You claimed I backed away. I didn't. He left the thread. He apologized, needlessly, for that, in this thread.

Is there a bottom of just how low you go on the intelligence ladder?

Now, suddenly, you're downgrading to "playoffs", after you used to make fun of those who'd have been happy with 8-8 or first round of the playoffs. That should make you re-think your positions, but it probably won't.

I'm not suddenly anything. But common sense suggests a progression.

Dorsey was a rookie in 2008, and he was being completely misused. The entire defensive front was young as hell, but they were all day-one picks. There was absolutely legit. talent there. Pioli wanted to go in a different direction, and thus there is a big setback. Many saw this as a mistake.

Flowers and Carr are above average CBs, and Page and Pollard had demonstrated a hint of promise. LB was an obvious weakness.

On offense, Bowe was looking like an emerging star, and Albert had a very solid rookie year. Most of the more knowledgeable posters on this site hated LJ and were calling for Charles (and a host of others) to be getting far more carries.

Your outside perspective is, frankly, not very informed to the details of our team. This is understandable because my knowledge of the Bills, for example, is fairly shallow.

But the difference is that I'm not over at BillsPlanet preaching from the rooftops.

You seem like a thoughtful, intelligent poster, but you've overplayed your hand with the Pioli defense (which I know you'll claim it's not) and analysis of the Chiefs.

Personally, I think they're horseshit.

From Don Banks and Peter King at SI (both of whom I enjoy their normal insight) to douche****s like Walter or Scott Wright, they're a bunch of Mel Kiper wannabe's.

I've said for years that Walter is a ****ing dumbass and Scott Wright proved to me this year (because I went on his "supposed" chat), that he's as ****ing dumb as the granite countertops in which my laptop currently lies.

It's hilarious to me that guys like Mecca, with his absolutes, passive-aggressive bullshit and never-wrong attitude, treat these sites like the ****ing Dead Sea Scrolls.

Jesus, you're ignorant.

This has nothing to do with him mowing the lawn.

It has everything to do with you getting owned, an d having no rebuttal, so you resorted to the "quality poster" bullshit.

You couldn't debate your point because he tore your argument apart, so you resorted to a personal attack. You backed away from your argument.

You did, however, pick it back up later, and continued to get owned.

Changing from a 4-3 to a 3-4 is not a mistake. It's a system change. AS for the legit aspect of that line... Hali? Tyler? McBride? Come on, now....

Flowers and Carr are above average CBs, and Page and Pollard had demonstrated a hint of promise. LB was an obvious weakness.

Calling both Flowers and Carr above average is certainly questionable. Pollard needed to go, and much of this site understood that. If he succeeds elsewhere, that's good for him. He wasn't working out in Kansas City.

On offense, Bowe was looking like an emerging star, and Albert had a very solid rookie year. Most of the more knowledgeable posters on this site hated LJ and were calling for Charles (and a host of others) to be getting far more carries.

So it's Pioli's fault that Bowe showed up overweight and then took proscribed drugs to lose the weight? It's the fault of Pioli and company that Bowe has problems catching the ball, and that wasn't an issue before Pioli arrived? As for Albert, I believe it was Milkman who addressed that in the past, so I'll leave that for him.

Your outside perspective is, frankly, not very informed to the details of our team. This is understandable because my knowledge of the Bills, for example, is fairly shallow.

It's funny, because I apparently knew enough to be pegging the team's win total at no more than 5, to talk about how the team would struggle because of the problem at NT, to want Pioli to get rid of LJ, etc...

But the difference is that I'm not over at BillsPlanet preaching from the rooftops.

When I first got here, I came and offered some opinion about how Pioli might run things, since he was coming from New England. Then the Cassel trade and the Sanchez pick in the draft happened, and a portion of you people lost your freakin' minds. I'm not preaching from the rooftops. I'm simply refuting some of the abject stupidity that Mecca, OTW, Hamas and company have been putting forth. I don't think Pioli is perfect, and I don't expect him to be. Some of you people have gotten to the point where you'd bitch if he shook twice after pissing, because you'd insist that 3 times was the magic number, and you'd insist the magic number was 2 if he shook it 3 times.

You seem like a thoughtful, intelligent poster, but you've overplayed your hand with the Pioli defense (which I know you'll claim it's not) and analysis of the Chiefs.

I claim it's not because it's not. Hell, from my position as a Patriots fan, it's better for my emotional well being if Pioli sucks ass, because that would make me more confident in the job that Belichick is doing since I could give him more credit for the past success. My interest in Pioli's moves is simply observational in nature. When I think he's screwed up I post it, and I'll continue to do so.

I didn't get owned. I destroyed his argument by pointing out the statistical reality. He then fell back on a "2 wins" defense as if it was manufactured out of thin air when that was the Chiefs win total the year before Pioli's arrival. I even went to 3 wins afterwards, and that netted only one more team to his claim. 4 win seasons seem to be the general cutoff for contention in less than 4 years.

Face it, dipshit. Deez made a terrible argument.

Look now I don't think he sucks. He's a hybrid guy who doesn't have a real position, I figured he was a somewhere between a 2nd or 3rd round prospect that would go to a good team looking for a toy.

I'm sure he'll have a nice year here and put up some big plays and fans will like him, like I said as a straight up player I have no issues with him.

My only real critical aspect of the pick is, how much does a shiny toy help when you don't have the basics covered?

Fair enough. My next question is Do you think there were really the players available at #36 to pass on such a playmaker? Could the players we could have drafted to cover the basics really provided more then a playmkaer like McCluster? McCluster wasn't somone I thought we'd pick so I'm not even saying he was my pick. But to me the OLBs that we needed were already gone. The NTs are all suspect....So what's your take on that?

Well firstly every single NT prospect will have flaws, it's hard to be a perfect prospect when being a big fat lazy ass is part of the job description.

But it could be pretty easily argued that guys like Kindle, Misi, Washington etc would mean more to a team in our position.

If Misi made it to #50 and we took him that would have fit my thoughts. I thought he would last that long even with all the 3-4 teams. Kindle is a wait and see because of his knee. For his prototypical size his production wasn't as good as I would want either. Washington..ILB... meh.

PhilFree:arrow:

BossChief
04-26-2010, 03:44 AM
Wrong, Frank.

His injury concerns weren't known to FANS until right before the draft.

And every report I read is that only ONE team believes he needs microfracture surgery.

Kindle missed how many games in college? Moeaki?the issue with injuries in college isnt how many games they missed in the past as much as how the injuries will effect how many games that player might miss in the future.

Moeaki had broken bones, not ligament damage.

True.

I'm sorry, but the specter of a dog shit QB looms large over this franchise, and I admit that it clouds my perception and potential optimism.you arent alone on that.
And I've given him credit for the moves I think he deserves credit for.

Chambers fell into his lap. I'm not going to give him credit for picking a guy up on waivers because the two teams ahead of him passed. It was a no-brainer and worked out for 2009. I personally don't expect the same level of production in 2010, but I hope I'm wrong.

TJ was a good signing for the money. But he's not a long-term solution.

I hope the Lilja signing works out, but I'm concerned about his knees, and that we're apparently going to play him out of position.

I've done nothing but praise the selections of Berry an Asomoah all weekend.

You know where I stand on McCluster.If I remember correctly, you wanted no part of us even claiming Chambers at the time because of the cost involved, same with Thomas Jones.

Am I remembering correctly or should I look it up?

there is a difference between fat and lazy.

...

I would MUCH rather have Dexter over any of those guys TBH.

If Orakpo didn't kick every ass he faced in his rookie year (like he did in college at Texas) Kindle wouldn't be thought of so highly IMO, the guy is a terrible run defender and is a highly under-productive sack artist. Add to that his injury problem that could cause him to loose what might be looked at as his biggest strength and what you have is a boom or bust guy with a low ceiling IMO.

FUCK KINDLE at 36, I would have been pissed if we took him TBH

04-26-2010, 03:58 AM
Excellent points Boss. I will disagree a bit with Kindle. He had a situation with his knees that had some teams taking him off the board altogether, but some teams having no problem with it. It's one of those situations. He could require microfracture surgery in four years, or never have a problem his entire life, even after playing a decade in the NFL. To me, it should have been worth the pick in the second. He showed the ability to rush and drop back in coverage.

Yes, a guy like Misi, once he dropped the DE college weight, was just as athletic, but he was never asked to do that in college. Potential versus production.

A close call between the two, and one that should have been considered by the Chiefs at that point.

McCluster was lasting no longer than the second round based on his extensive big play abilities, and it's really not a bad pick as they had a definite need at the slot and if they can give him the secret weaon treatment and he actually pans out in that regard, he'll be a fine pick.

In actuality, I don't think that either Misi or Kindle was that high on the Chiefs board. They brought back Vrabel and Hali was pretty darn productive. You don't draft a backup in the second round, and both Kindle and Misi were going to be that for the Chiefs at that point.

BossChief
04-26-2010, 04:23 AM
Im sure Ill get flamed again for this but I am actually quite happy that we have a situation like the one we have with Studabaker. His workout times were as good as any guy at the combine last year or this and he has been under the wing of one of the best linebacker to play in this system in the last decade or two to learn the intricacies of the position.

I think that when he is ready and takes over the spot, he will be a "unexpected star" of sorts and will seemingly "come out of nowhere" when in essence he has been part of (brace yourself) "the process"

To me, signing Vrabel to a 1 year deal was a sign that read something like "we really like Studabaker, but we feel he isn't quite "there" yet and we would like to see him learn some more from "our guy" while we can, because we feel the kid has a long term future here.

Studebaker is a tomato can in this system.

A complete tweener who lacks the speed to either rush the passer or drop back in coverage on the outside.

I like his hustle on special teams, but I'd rather see him inside versus outside at this point. He's got the size and burst to be effective as a mike in a 3-4. I don't think he's got the skill set to be effective on the exterior.

Andy is one of the finest small school defensive ends in the country who has put up monster numbers the past two seasons for the Thunder of Wheaton (IL) College. He was named a first-team All-American by Football Digest following the 2006 season, and a first-team preseason (2007) All-American by CDS. Unfortunately, his 2007 season was cut short by a season-ending foot injury that required surgery, and he was not healthy enough to take part in the post-season all star games or the Combine. However, he came back on 4-18-8 to put up one of the most phenomenal pro day workouts ever for a defensive end. Had he been at the Combine, he would have placed first among DEs in the short shuttle (4.14), the 3-cone drill (6.81), the broad jump (10'7"), the vertical jump (36.5") and placed third in the forty-yard dash (4.60). His short shuttle and 3-cone numbers are equivalent to the best numbers put up by DBs at the Combine. The buzz is very late, but very loud for this small school stud.

stick with the facts, sir.

Not bad for 6'3 255

I know his production has to be taken with a grain of salt because of being at a small school but in 12 games he had 25 tackles for loss and 18 sacks!

He had two interceptions and broke the game open for us for one of the most improbable wins I can remember.

Mecca, you remember that game. You made a crazy claim before it. Shit, I can never talk shit about WPI again because of that game...and there was nothing I liked more than talking some good ole shit about WPI. I should be pissed at Andy for taking that from me. (funny though, they have actually done some good work since then ...a couple travesties aside.)

One was a gift, the other was a good break on the ball just outside the endzone that he almost returned all the way before "the Studabaker ran out of gas"

I think that once this kid is ready to take over full time, he will be a big weapon for us.

Hey maybe he can play, I really don't say much about that, anything is better than Vrabel being out there, my comment was more questioning what we're gonna do with a 4.8 safety.

If we were gonna do that we coulda just picked Myron Rolle even he's faster than that and hey he's smart.

04-26-2010, 05:33 AM
I bet we felt he would quit football prematurely if he felt the future wasnt there for him early on.

Honestly, I still think that either Page/Morgan locks down the SS spot for the long term.

Morgan is coming up on a make or break year and this is about when most guys that are informed about him expected him to start making strides after being so inexperienced.

I still think he can be a playmaker, but he has a long way to go.

Obviously, I agree about Rolle though. Ive liked him for quite some time now. He was one of "my guys"

Mecca
04-26-2010, 05:38 AM
I pretty much said a long time ago that we'd have no interest in drafting Rolle because we'd be one of the teams that would downgrade him for actually having options in life that don't involve football.

BossChief
04-26-2010, 05:45 AM
and you were probably right

I can live with it because I value ball skills in the secondary over just about everything else and I feel both Morgan and Page are much better in that category.

I would love to see Morgan show up on a mission this year to earn a starters job no matter what. That kid has immense potential.

You are hilarious. Like every team didn't pass on him at least 5x. He got picked at the very, very back end of the draft.

But yea KC was "ONE" of the teams concerned about his other interest.

I think more likely they may be concerned he isn't really that good. He was projected as a late round pick before he missed a year of football. But you already know that.
