Two days in a row Petro has beat this drum. He's just burying Eric Berry (Berry-ing him?)

Good grief.

Yeah whatever. He's looked good against the run, and made some big mistakes in the passing game. He's still a rookie. He'll be fine.

Eric has made some very correctible mistakes. I wasn't happy he's caused both of the passing tds, but with a little more discipline those plays don't happen and our wins would look a little more convincing. He will be fine.

His position inherently puts him in the spotlight whenever he makes a mistake. When safeties screw up, they're BIG mistakes. When a D-lineman screws up, there's usually someone behind him to make a play. People are quicker to point out a 55 yard pass play than a 15 yard run.

For me, it's the kid's attitude. He'll be great.

Jackson showed absolutely nothing until the first game of this season. Berry has had some problems in pass coverage, especially with play fakes, but he has been good against the run, and he was good against the pass in the second half of the Cleveland game.

Berry was recognized as one of, if not the best prospects in the entire draft. Jackson was graded out as a middle to late first rounder.

The Chiefs have started the season 2-0, and we were horrible all of Jackson's first season. It is a lot easier to jump on players when we aren't winning.

Berry has been awesome in his first two games. The mistakes he made were more about learning where he needs to be. He will get those. What I watch is the fact that he goes all out, sells out every play. When he does make a mistake he makes it at full speed. This is what he should be doing. He never looks tentative.

So when he gets the mental aspect of playing at the NFL level down he's going to be Reed and Polamalu.

Right up above a couple of inches Berry has been anointed the best player in the draft - just like Dorsey, DJ, Tait, and every other KC rookie who's ever made a play. I've read elsewhere that Berry is the combination of three Hall-of-Famers - because he made a tackle. LOL

What I heard was a guy who was trying to convince everybody listening that Berry was a horrible player who was getting burned on every play and was never going to play like Patrick Willis (that's where the rant began).

This based on two games. Which happen to be the two of the best defensive games the Chiefs have played in probably a decade, even with the two plays that Barry was burned on.

Pollard is still a liability in the passing game. If you had seen the opener with Indy, there was a memorable moment when he was beaten for a TD after running his mouth for several previous plays. He makes a big play sometimes, but to imply the Chiefs would be fine with Pollard instead of Berry is asinine, retarded, and uninformed.

It is a good point that Berry gets excuses but Jackson was blasted from day 1. The explanation is that Jackson should have gotten patience as a rookie too before the fans decided he sucked, but many decided it on draft day.

Pollard is still the same player, Berry is probably already better than he is all around and has a far higher ceiling. But don't tell that to mouth breathing sports radio callers/hosts, I know.

Fuck Petro. Stupid Fuck. After 2 fucking games he is going to call Berry a bust? The guy was a stud in pre-season and has made 3 mistakes that all rookies make early in their careers.

Tyson Jackson wasn't good at anything. He couldn't beat the blocks. He couldn't defend the run. He did nothing but get pushed around and take up space. Berry has been terrific stopping the run, and he's been average in coverage. He's also made some plays in coverage. He nearly had a pick against Cleveland. He's still learning the difference between a playaction and a run. All fucking defensive backs go through this. By week 8 he will have 90% of his problems fixed. He's going to be a fuckin Pro Bowler. We will never be able to say that about Tyson Jackson.

How is that somewhat fair? Did we see anything in Jackson's play all last season that indicated he would grow into a force? No, and especially not in the first two games he played.

Have we seen anything in Berry's play that indicates he will grow into a force? Absolutely. Yes.

Two games is not a large enough sample size, and I do think that it's far more reasonable to expect earlier results from a DB than a D-lineman.

The college careers (and perceived levels of talent) are unquestionably directing these discussions more than the play on the field through 2 games of their careers.

I thought it was a poor selection from a pre-draft standpoint (talking about Jackson), but that's a completely separate issue from looking at his development post-draft. I think that's something a lot of people have real trouble with, separating draft discussion (which is essentially meaningless once the picks have been made) from actual NFL performance.

C'mon. The guy made a tackle behind the line of scrimmage. A shoulder tackle at that. BFD. He's also given up two touchdowns on blown coverage. If that would have been McGraw, this place would be all over his nuts.

He's a rookie. He should get some time to adjust. However, if he keeps blowing coverage plays, he's not Ed Reed, he's Laron Landry.

To this point, including the preseason, he's being outplayed by Kendrick Lewis, who has been very solid on pass plays.

Two games is not a large enough sample size, and I do think that it's far more reasonable to expect earlier results from a DB than a D-lineman. I don't think it's a coincidence that Jackson's best pro start was his 17th, after a full season starting and his first full professional offseason. Hopefully he starts the 2011 season with an equivalent boost.

I think Dorsey is a perfect example of the development curve for a DL, although he's obviously been impacted by his chronic injury issue and the change in scheme and coordinator.The college careers (and perceived levels of talent) are unquestionably directing these discussions more than the play on the field through 2 games of their careers.There's some synchronicity, that's the point I was just trying to make, although I struggled with trying to verbalize it.

I'd actually attribute the jump in our run defense to having Belcher and Johnson as our starting MLB/ILB versus Mays/Williams last season. Both have been very solid against the run in the first two games.

Also having a guy who can coach/call a 3-4 defense in Crennel helps a ton too.

Berry has played well against the run though.

But if he turns out to be just a good (not great) safety, then we would've been better off going any number of other directions.

Are you serious?

Jackson was a two down player that statistically ranked last among all defensive ends in the NFL. He can't rush the passer and he was horrible in the run game.

Eric Berry has been phenomenal in run support but his passing play recognition is just a bit slow. He'll often freeze for a half a second or so, trying to figure out what's happening and by then, it's too late.

It's all totally correctable and expected to happen a rookie, especially a rookie that came out as a JUNIOR, starting in the NFL.

HUGE difference between Berry's "struggles" and Jackson's incompetence.

It's funny because we obviously don't need O-line help. We've allowed 2 sacks in 2 games, and 1 of them was because Cassel didn't get rid of the ball on time. Therefore the O-line has only been responsible for allowing 1 sack so far. The fact is, Albert is a good LT, and the rest of our O-line is solid. Richardson is a major upgrade over O'Callaghan.

Weigmann and Lilja are solid. Waters is acceptable. The tackles are not good, and to say that Richardson is a "major upgrade" over anyone is incorrect. He's been borderline bad for the first two games. Albert is not good. I suggest you tape the games and rewatch them and focus on the offensive line. His footwork is terrible and over-extends on nearly every block.

They've been running Jones almost exclusively behind Weigmann and Lilja. Charles and McCluster are getting stuffed on the outside because our tackles can't block for shit. They can't re-route anyone and can't deal with multiple defenders. That's a fact.

Although, Moeaki has been impressive in his blocking. I don't know if it's because Pope may be the worst blocking TE in the history of the NFL, but at least Moeaki appears to be able to seal his guy off and hold his blocks.

Because the knocks on Tyson Jackson were that he couldn't play at the pro level. He physically wasn't gifted enough. Whereas the knocks on Berry are all mental lapses. Things that CAN be fixed. Physically, he plays the position like a stud. Mentally, he still needs a little work. To be expected making the switch to playing against more complicated NFL offenses.

Getting burned is not the same as missing your assignment altogether. Getting burned is when you know your assignment but either you can't make your turn fluidly enough or are too slow to stick with the receiver physically, or a combination of both. That hasn't happened with Berry yet. Missing your assignment is correctable, not being physically gifted enough is not.

[QUOTE]You are so far off on your assessment of Albert and Richardson, that you have lost all credibility when giving an opinion on any other position/player.

No, I'm not. The drafturbators would rather burn their eyes out with a hot spoon than draft an offensive lineman, so they formulate this falsehood that Richardson, O'Murphy and Albert are actually quality NFL tackles. They aren't. I dare you to objectively watch replay's of the past two games and all four pre-season games and tell me that they have the skills to effectively play the position at even 50% of the top two at their position.

I double dog dare you.

We all understand you wanted Okung. Get over it.

I was over it the moment we drafted Berry. And I had no problem with the team drafting Berry. We needed a safety. Although, I think we could have picked a quality one later in the draft (Morgan Burnett was the guy I wanted with the Chiefs second or third round pick, and he's now staring for the Packers.). And me wanting Okung in the draft has nothing to do with the actual on-field play of Richardson and Albert.

Just because you, along with the handful of Drafturbators, refuse to accept a LT as a viable first round selection when we've already got one on the team, regardless of his effectiveness at that position, doesn't mean that I'm fixated on a particular player. I'm not. However, I do understand the importance of the LT position and feel that the Chiefs had the chance to address the problems that the team has at that position in the past two drafts.

However, I don't think Pioli has any desire to draft offensive linemen and thinks that they can be coached up to perform at a decent level. So, you and your merry little band of "draft a playmaker" guys can all be happy that that is exactly what the Scott Pioli led Chiefs will do and instead rely on mediocre free agent acquisitions to fill our perceived holes on the offensive line.

The Chiefs have given up 2 sacks in 2 games. The sack that Cleveland got was 100% on Cassel. 1 sack in 2 games does not place either tackle "at even 50% of the top two at their position." The team is also 5th in the league in rushing (yards per game) 9th in yards per attempt. That's a great stat considering how bad the passing game is.

Well then, I guess Charlie's focus on getting the ball out of Cassel's hands due to the lack of talent that we have at the tackle position is paying off, because it sure isn't due to the skills of our substandard right and left tackles.

As far as the run game goes, of course it is going to be up there because our passing offense is so horrific. In fact, despite having the 5th rated run offense, our overall offense stands at 30th. That's the big 3 - 0. It's not a "great stat considering how bad the passing game is." It's because the passing game is so bad. (And you can thank Weigmann and Lilja for basically allowing the Chiefs to gain that much, because if Niswanger was in there, our run games stats would mirror those of the passing game.)

We are 30th in the league in passing attempts. We are 32nd in the league in completions. We aren't giving up sacks because we aren't passing the ball. And on those rare occasions that we do pass the ball, those passes are quick 5 yard checkdowns. The reason that Matt Cassel hasn't been sacked isn't because we have this ultra-new, super duper, amazing offensive line. It's because they are getting the ball out as fast as humanly possible so our completely ineffectual tackles don't get freight trained on every single passing down.

It's because of shitty tackle play that we have the second to worst yard per pass in the NFL, surpassed only by the horrible Fluffalo Bills who actually do have a worse offensive line.

So, now I triple dog dare you to actually go back and watch the tackle play in the preseason and first two regular season games and tell me if they are actually even mediocre.

I've seen mult plays this season when the Oline literally gives Cassel 5 sec or so to get rid of the ball, and he still doesn't get rid of it, only to take the sack or throw a shitty god damn pass.

The Oline is playing very well this season, this isn't even an issue.

Even in New England, with Welker and Moss plus a very good pass protecting Oline, was STILL the most sacked QB in the NFL.

The guy holds onto the ball to fucking long. He doesn't throw to his WR's before breaking into their route. He waits til the WR is wide open with enough seperation where he feels he won't throw a god damn interception. Remember he hasn't had very much PT since his HS days.

Admit it: You masturbate in the morning while thinking of Russell Okung and in the evening, Zane Beadles.

:shake:

We'd have most likely been a lot better off for the long run with those two guys versus Berry and McCluster.

Berry has cost us two touchdowns and McCluster, for all his speed and versatility, has 2 receptions for 9 yards and two runs for a grand total of 3 yards. Sure, the special teams TD was nice, but we would have had that earlier if Studebaker had decided to pull his head out of his ass on Arenas' run. McCluster is starting to parallel Kris Wilson as our super secret offensive weapon.

Could have picked up Morgan Burnett in the third, and bingo!, quality LT, quality RT, starting safety, etc.

Pollard is still a liability in the passing game. If you had seen the opener with Indy, there was a memorable moment when he was beaten for a TD after running his mouth for several previous plays. He makes a big play sometimes, but to imply the Chiefs would be fine with Pollard instead of Berry is asinine, retarded, and uninformed.

It is a good point that Berry gets excuses but Jackson was blasted from day 1. The explanation is that Jackson should have gotten patience as a rookie too before the fans decided he sucked, but many decided it on draft day.

Pollard is still the same player, Berry is probably already better than he is all around and has a far higher ceiling. But don't tell that to mouth breathing sports radio callers/hosts, I know.

Pollard got beat like a drum in pass coverage last year as well.

If they took Monroe or Oher in '09 instead of Jackson, the Okung thing would have been a non-issue as it relates to my perception of the 2010 draft. In fact, prior to the draft, Albert himself said he would have had no problem in sliding over so Monroe could play at LT. (IIRC)

Now, when they have a chance at potentially drafting a legitimate QBOTF in the next year or two, he's forced to play behind a substandard line, especially when you consider that Waters and Weigmann have one, possibly two years left at most.

You really want to put a potential QBOTF behind a line anchored by Albert and Richardson and who knows what two stiffs at LG and C? I'm simply looking at this from a long term perspective. I know that's a real stretch for most people around here though...

Every time he's made a mistake, he's come back and made an amazing play. Berry has been victimized no doubt. But he's a stud. Anybody should be able to see that.

I remember Dale Carter in his early years. He would make a mistake and then come back and make a big play. Rookie DB's are going to make mistakes in the passing game. That is how it is. The important thing is tha the learns. And he probably won't learn overnight either.

Yes and no.

And extraordinary amount of 2009 draftees are already on the street and with different teams.

By the end of Week One in the NFL, the 2010 draftees scored more touchdowns than the entire 2009 class combined throughout the 16 game season.

Some years, the draft classes are stronger than other years.

Finding a starting center will be easy.

Yeah...he's right next to that winning Powerball ticket you've got laying on the kitchen counter. Finding a starting center was so easy, we had to beg a 38 year old Weigmann back to cover for the guy who Herm envisioned as the starting center.


And replacing Waters, who's play has dropped off considerably each year won't be difficult, either. As a matter of fact, Lilja could take over now. Asamoah at right guard. Done.

I'm hoping that Asamoah will be that LG. He's a power player, a lot like Waters, and would be a better transition next to Albert. Lilja has proven himself to be a quality RG and I'd rather have Asamoah, as a rook, learn the new spot than teach an old dog new tricks.

Have you looked around the league and watched teams with good QB's play? Do you think that Brees or Rodgers or Peyton Manning or Schaub or any other number of "Franchise QB's" are playing behind an offensive line that's better than the current Chiefs?

Yeah, they are. The Chiefs offensive line, interior wise, is greatly improved with getting Weigmann back (which I thought was a complete fuck up move by Carl and Herm getting rid of him in the first place) as well as Lilja (again, nice job Carl). However, both are running on skill alone and I worry about both wearing down over the course of a season as they are both undersized and need to be pulling and trapping more than drive blocking, which they've been doing to this point supporting the establishment of the run with Jones.

And let's be honest - Cassel isn't good. We all know he holds onto the ball far too long. He doesn't see the field very well. He floats his passes. He doesn't lead his receivers properly. He looks for the checkdown immediately off the #1 receiver per the play call. I do like his size and athletic ability, but he is simply a bigger version of Damon Huard - a nice guy to have as the #2 guy on the roster.

If so, you're unbelievably wrong.

They do have better offensive lines. Lilja got kicked to the curb by the Colts because he couldn't hold off the Saints defensive line. Weigmann got released by the Doncs because he was too old - after we released him because he was too old. Waters is a shell of his former self - a guy that made a name playing besides a young Weigmann (who, at the time, was the most underrated OL in the NFL) and Big Willie Roaf. And those are our best linemen. I won't comment on the tackles because I know you've watched the games and are intelligent and can make your own objective analysis.

They also have substantially better quarterbacks. Manning might have the quickest release of any quarterback that's ever played the game. Brees is right up there in terms of his release and accuracy. Rogers has an absolute cannon that allows him to hold onto the ball. Schaub had people in Atlanta wanting to make Mike Vick a tailback due to his accuracy and patience.

Unfortunately, we don't have that at QB. You get lucky as hell getting that at QB. Cassel was the best thing that year at QB in terms of free agency or the draft. The Chiefs needed a quarterback in the worst way as they didn't know if Croyle would play again due to the knee/leg injury and the rest of the Chiefs QB's suck donkey nuts. It was Cassel and nobody else. And they put him behind a shit dick offensive line. The results were completely predictable and obvious.

Now the guy is suffering from a little Dave Carr syndrome and is doing what the OC says in terms of getting the ball out quick. (And that's been a struggle as well. I screamed at the TV multiple times on Sunday for him to get rid of/pass the fucking ball.) The O-line held off the Browns well enough. However, the Browns have shit for a pass rush. In fact, the Chargers have shit for a pass rush.

We'll see how your vaunted Chiefs offensive line holds up against the Niners come Sunday.

They nabbed Weigmann in free agency? They let him go two seasons ago because they thought he was too old. Denver let him go this last season because they thought he was too old.

Casey plays balls out. However, picking up a 38 year old center after he's been released twice because he's too old for football isn't exactly making sure you're covered at that position. That's a stop gap at best. I'm glad he's back, and never wanted him to be released in the first place, but it's a stop gap.

Asamoah was a four year starter at right guard. Why the **** would you move HIM to accommodate a veteran?

Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Really? A four year college guy at the position. I wonder...how long did Branden Albert play LG in college? God forbid that someone would move someone out of position...

And, by the way, how long has Ryan Lilja played RG?

I never said that Cassel was the end all be all of QB's. The guy isn't good. He holds onto the ball too long. He's got bad pocket presence. But playing behind a dogshit line isn't helping matters.

Berry is well on his way to over 100 total tackles, and the INTs and such will come with time. It's waaay too early for Petro to be making any claims like that. Tard.

Blown coverages...Unknown. Maybe somebody has that info somewhere in the web? I'm sure they made a few mistakes, especially Troy. He's a high risk, high reward type player, similar to Berry.

They nabbed Weigmann in free agency? They let him go two seasons ago because they thought he was too old. Denver let him go this last season because they thought he was too old.



No. They let him go because they went younger on the offensive line in 2008.

And for the record, I don't want to debate this any further. You have a Lexington Steele sized hard-on for offensive lineman and quite frankly, it's rather disturbing.

Put it this way, Sac: The Chiefs are 2-0, have given up only 2 sacks, have one running back averaging 6 yards a carry and another averaging 4 yards a carry.

Offensive line is the LEAST of the Chiefs worries.

I can't believe so many people have his jersey. Does anyone else notice that? There's quite a few in the stands. They are probably intoxicated so much that they don't even know what's going on during the games lol.

I too saw many Casshole jerseys at the game. Mmm...embarrassed for the men wearing them I was.

The women somewhat get a pass*


*Though not from Cassel as he can't throw one worth a shit.

Seriously? During games my mom who is like 54 years old and doesn't know much about sports sends me text messages like "Cassel sucks".

I figured she was the barometer for a casual fan.

Actually that guy isn't alone. There's another guy I've been talking to on a blog that is trying to stick up for Cassel because he was good in 2008, and he honestly believes that Cassel is a great QB here's his quote to me...

"The addition of Matt Cassel as a quarterback gave them someone that you can honestly say is a guy that has potential to be really good."

Berry and Flowers just got props on NFLN, and we were picked by Thiesman and the commentator who isn't a former coach to win the game against San Fransexual.

So, Mr. Petro:

Suck It.
