View Full Version : Chiefs Chiefs sign G Jon Asamoah


The Poz

"Chiefs signed third-round OG Jon Asamoah to a four-year, $2.7 million contract, including $900,000 guaranteed.
The Outlaw Trophy candidate from Illinois was considered the second-best guard in the draft. He's expected to sit behind Brian Waters and Ryan Lilja as a rookie. It will be interesting to see if the Chiefs give Asamoah some snaps at center in the coming weeks, as that's where he could help the 2010 squad the most."

Actually I think it's great. He's veteran enough to get the offense and know his responsibility, but he doesn't have to stack up on the line like he's used to. Let a younger, stronger body handle that.

edit: and he's a better blocker than either of the fucks we currently have in line to play the position. Open a spot and improve the line.

Actually, it appears their approach is to draft high quality players everywhere on the team. They've addressed defense with Berry, the line with Asamoah, the offense with TE Moeaki and McCluster, and special teams. They haven't fully addressed any one unit, but it appears they have upgraded nearly every unit (except D-Line and I'm still disappointed about not taking Cam Thomas)

No they won't.

Come on be a little optimistic, not trying to say your negative or anything,
but there is plenty of room for improvement. We have better quality lineman this year than last year. Asomoah, Wiegman, Lilja alone are upgrades over what we had last year. When Colin Brown played at guard, he did well. There is better talent on the interior and also more competition as well.

*But, Albert is the key for our Oline imo. He needs to step.

i think they have decided that Brown is going to play guard
we really are committed to albert/O'callaghan at tackle for this year unless Richardson suddenly grows a set.

i think they should of been trying Waters at center already

Lilja at RG is not what most know it alls (including myself) would consider good usage of resources.

IMO they should cut Waters loose and afford him the opportunity to catch on with another team before camp. We owe him (and ourselves) that much.

Couldn't agree more.

Put him on the trade block. Take what you can get for him.

Start playing for the future.

That moves Lilja to his natural LG position, and allows Asomoah to play his natural RG position.

We're still fucked at center, however.

I don't mind the Asamoah draft selection, but it doesn't make much sense.

The Chiefs now have a bunch of right guards (Asamoah, Brown, Niswanger, Nsukwe and Lilja).

I don't think that they're planning to move Brown back to tackle and even if they did, he'd be behind O'C, Richardson and likely Nsuckwe.

I hope their intentions become clear come training camp because it seems like they're stock piling lineman just to stock pile lineman.

Also, if they traded/cut Waters and moved Lilja into his spot, Lilja would be one of the lowest paid starting left guards in the entire NFL.

In fairness, Asomoah has more potential than all of the players you listed - by far.

But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned, considering they've done the same thing at other postions - like NCB, as an example.

They just took a NCB last year, then follow up by taking another with a very valuable pick this year.

Hopefully trading up to take a TE doesn't become an annual occurrence either.

You can't help but question their evaluation skills when they are picking players at the same positions in back to back years while huge needs are ignored.

BossChief
07-23-2010, 08:40 PM
Lilja is slotted to play a position at 290 pounds that is typically manned by guys 35-50 pounds heavier. If we had a big mauler of a center, that would be somewhat understandable, but we signed a vet that ends the season at less than 280 because of weight loss over the course of the year and Niswanger isn't good.

I think that down the stretch we are gonna struggle in short yardage because of that.

We are penciled in to have a set of guards and center that are easily 100 pounds lighter than average as a group.

To me, that line is built to protect the quarterback more than to emphasize our most lethal part of the offense (the running game)

Yeah, I fully agree. I like the Asamoah pick because he's got unlimited upside, but they took Colin Brown last year and added Lilja this offseason. Where does Asamoah fit and will Weis push to have the best players on the field at all times (Mike Goff?).

I think the Moeaki selection is a big time risk/reward pick but if he's not Mark Bavaro, Junior, they'll take one again next year. It's clear that this front office and coaching staff is unable to deviate from the Giants glory years when they ran the Belichick defense and the Perkins/Erhardt offense.

They better get this shit right or it's going to be a long five years in KC for Pioli, Haley, Weis and Crennel.

Matt Cassel on the other hand, is laughing each and every day at their stupidity. When informed by Weis that he could possibly loose his starting job to Brodie Croyle with a poor preseason performance coupled with a bad first quarter of play, Cassel responded "Yeah, I'll back up Croyle but you'll blow me first".

Weis agreed.

just want to comment on Asamoah here Dane.

I think the pick makes a lot of sense. Mind you though, Im speaking from two points of view here. Talent wise, I see this as a good pick. Clearly, i think he is the most talented guy over any of the interior offensive lineman we have on our roster.

Its a good move. I think it makes sense. Im only saying that because Im thinking longterm. I think he will win the job and will be the starting guard for years to come. Bold statement I know:D...With that being said, because he is talented and young, he could provide some longevity at the position IF he doesn't get hurt. Waters is old, so is Wiegman, and Lilja, as you know is banged up. Brown is a project and is not guaranteed which kinda warms me up to the Asamoah pick. Like the pick and gives me a little bit of reason to feel a little more optimistic about the OL.

One unproven rookie makes you feel good about the line?

:facepalm:

As you pointed out, the offensive line is old and the young guys inexperienced. I have a great deal of faith in Brandon Albert, but that's it. The rest is dog shit.

Hopefully, Asamoah steps up and takes the right guard spot but that leaves Colin Brown as the odd man out, which makes him a poor 5th round selection last year.

Best case scenario, Albert kicks ass as does Asamoah. Even with that, the Chiefs are baren at the center, left guard and right tackle position.

That's not exactly comforting.

All more reason to look forward to the draft next year. Plenty of room for improvement and to draft OL for next year.

I think Asamoah is a talent. jmo. He was rated pretty high as an interior OL and the Chiefs got him in the 3rd. I think it was great value on the Chiefs part for where they selected him. Solid starter for Illinois during his time there.

It's a slow process. It'll take time. If they could nab picks like this for next year they'll be on their way.

It should NOT take three seasons to rebuild to a quality NFL line.

If Colin Brown is a bust, Pioli further fucked up the 2009 draft.

The Chiefs have needs at d-line, linebacker, QB and WR. If they need a left guard, right tackle and center out of the 2011 draft, this team won't compete for at least two more years, minimum.

Take off the rose-colored glasses.

BossChief
07-23-2010, 09:23 PM
Dane, I think you are underestimating how much improvement can be made on the OL with the additions we made. Remember that most of the sacks and perceived lack of production from last years line came from Cassel eating the damn ball consistently over the first ten games and that changed everything. Think of the line over the course of the last 6 games with the current additions and the line has the potential to be quite a bit better.

Time will tell.

They have holes everywhere. If they fill some of those holes and yes if it means OL, we should cheer and be proud because at least they're doing something right. and yeah if they draft a LT and he turns out to be better than Albert, so what, let it be. Im for improvement anywhere. Mind you, Im open to improvement anywhere, that may or could be different from you.

Draft picks are hits and misses. Thats just the way it goes in the NFL. If you as a fan can't accept that, that is your problem. Imo it is not the right approach to put a timeline as to when the OL should be built.

Its best to be easygoing about it. I don't expect them to compete this year but will say with their draft picks I was impressed and do see improvement.

The problem is that they're short term.

Weigmann is one and done (if he even makes it as starter, let alone 16 games).

Lilja was cut by a team that replaced him with Andy Alleman and signed a three year deal for $7.5 million, not exactly Steve Hutchison or Alan Faneca money.

It's very likely that the Chiefs will be looking for three starters along the offensive line in 2011 and if Albert doesn't return to his 2008 form, possibly four.

Which is why I said move Lilja to LG where he's played several seasons successfully. Move Waters to C and if he can't beat out Wiegmann, then attempt a trade for a low round draft pick. Then let Asamoah start at LG this year and have a years experience going into next season.

The way we're set now, we're in desperate need of a center and LG going into next season (possibly RT too). If they use my lineup and we resolve the RT position, then center will be the only need going into next year to replace an aging Waters or Wiegmann.

they need another T pretty bad.

from the OTA's and mini camp reports of Gretz, i believe the depth chart was as follows:

LT Albert Richardson Tyler Eastman (Rookie FA)
LG Waters ItchyKoochie Ndukwe
C Weigmann Niswanger (they both saw time with the first teamers)
RG Lilja Asomoah
RT O'Callohan Brown (before brown was at G and they cut Jermail Porter and moved Brown back to 2nd team RT)

andrew lewis and lemuel jeanpierre are the other G-C combo guys both as rookie FA's along with Daryll Harris. IIRC he didn't run with the first or even the 2nd team which i would have hoped he would build on but you can't judge from OTA's and minicamp. He could be in a good position have a role like wade smith had as the backup at the LT, LG, C, and RG spots. Depends on how much he has improved and what Weis thinks of him.

OT is a spot to look for along with WR when cuts start coming through the waiver wire.

That's just way too much for one training camp. First off, Waters hasn't played center in a decade and his play is declining. By all accounts, he didn't take any snaps at center this offseason.

If Lilja played at a high level, he wouldn't have been replaced by Andy Alleman. He "protected" the QB with the quickest release in the NFL. How do you think he'd fare with Cassel? I'm guessing, not very well.

The way we're set now, we're in desperate need of a center and LG going into next season (possibly RT too). If they use my lineup and we resolve the RT position, then center will be the only need going into next year to replace an aging Waters or Wiegmann.

Again, you're jumping the gun. Asamoah is a rookie and unlikely to beat out Waters. The right tackle position isn't going to be "solved" unless the lightswitch turns on for Barry Richardson, which is about 50/50 right now (not good odds).

The offensive line is a wreck and adding Asamoah, while talented with a great upside, doesn't really change this clusterfuck.

Colin Brown was a late round pick. You kind of have to have expectations for a guy to be a "bust". A 1st round pick that sucks is a "bust". But as bad as Colin Brown could ever be, he won't ever be a bust.

He'll be a wasted pick, especially when guys like Hightower, Breaston, et al have turned into quality players.

You're never going to have a championship caliber squad year in and year out by consistently missing on players.

Fifth rounders, contrary to Hootie's beliefs, often contribute to Super Bowl teams (see Kevin Boss).

Hightower and Breaston? Wrong draft class man.

But I understand what your saying. But I also don't ever have a high expectation from a 5th round pick. Therefore IMO a 5th round pick can never be a "bust". He can be a "miss". But I just feel that bust is the wrong word to use.

The good teams constantly mine late round picks and if the Chiefs want to be consistently good, they can't miss on 5th rounders consistently.

Hey now. I like Kendrick Lewis so far.

If Lilja played at a high level, he wouldn't have been replaced by Andy Alleman. He "protected" the QB with the quickest release in the NFL. How do you think he'd fare with Cassel? I'm guessing, not very well.

I'm kind of in agreement with you on most of your points on this subject, but this point is off the mark.

Lilja was the fall guy for Peyton Manning.

Bill Polian came out after the SB and blamed the O-Line for the Colts loss.
Everyone but Hootie knows that Manning had plenty of time in the pocket in the SB, and the Colts ran the ball effectively as well.

Lilja was the sacrificial lamb.

Lilja was cut because Peyton Manning threw a critical interception.

There's been info posted here in the past supporting these very points. Lilja was a good signing. I predict that he'll play well for the Chiefs and that any injuries he sustains will be acute rather than chronic. (It is football afterall.)

Not likely to happen, but wouldn't it be nice to see Will Shields coming in as a consultant or asst. coach to share some knowledge with Asamoah & the other young linemen?
