McCluster not on injury report

The Chiefs don't have Dexter McCluster listed on the injury report they issued today. That means either McCluster will play Sunday against the Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium or that he will be a healthy scratch.

More likely, he will play. That would add another playmaker to an offense that scored 102 points over the past three games.

He was a full participant in several practices last week. Speculation on the radio today that he found his way into the doghouse, Bowe style '09. No clue if this has any legitimacy, as KK is not a trustworthy source.

If that converts a couple of first downs and possibly even a TD... then I am cool with that after 5 weeks off.

Will this be the offseason mantra for the McCluster Masturbators?

"He was really dynamic and explosive before the injury. The last five games he was solid but not spectacular, but that's OK because he missed basically half the year. With a full offseason he'll be more of a playmaker in his second year. He should be more like Wes Welker."

With Bowe stretching the field more now, I think McCluster will be more of a factor in the passing game like we all thought. The underneath will be a little more open, so hopefully we can get him involved this week.

Well yeah the injury set him back just a little.

It's like every positive that is discussed about the Chiefs or a player has to be turned into an expo facto draft debate. I mean at this point in time a player coming back off injury who can help us is a good thing regardless if anyone liked the draft pick or not. It's December and we're leading the division and we have some huge games to play and people want to still bitch about the draft. Get the fuck over it you bunch of lame ass nancy boys.

Chiefnj2
12-01-2010, 07:42 PM

You are correct, he really has done much even when healthy. It is also somewhat unrealistic to expect him to do much when he has been placed in a position to learn returning, running and receiving.

The last two weeks before his injury he seemed to be improving. If he can pick up from where he left off and help the team pick up an additional 60-70 yards on offense (exluding returns) then it will be great.

Do you guys remember his run backs in the opener against the Eggos? That team needed a spark and he provided it. If KC loses against SD at home we would have had an entirely different team mentality going into week two.

The Dane McCloud scenario could have been in full effect if Dexter wasn't playing in that game.

Why would anyone diss the guy? He's made a few plays as a rookie and is a great teammate by all accounts.

Here's the true genius of Pioli's move:

When you draft KRs and gadget players, the dividends pay off almost immediately, which makes the picks look better initially than what they really are.

When you say "impact" you really mean "instant impact" which is disingenuous. We needed impact players at a number of positions (and still do) that will take time to develop--namely, NT, pass rusher, WR, and QB.

If a WR takes long to develop, then why are we calling Dex an instant dividend when his primary role is going to be served as a slot receiver. Maybe he never reaches his potential, but there's no doubt his upside is a lot higher than what we've seen to date.

Given that Dex has had limited kickoff duties and that the majority of his snaps have been in the slot, then there's no reason not to give him the same development time as another WR would get.

It seems like unless you're not hating on some player around here you dont feeling like you are a legit writer. Is that the prerequisite, to have a Whitlock type attitude so one day you can say, "I was right bitches.. hows my ass taste?" Havn't you eaten enough crow to keep that mouth of yours shut long enough to let the man finish out a complete season before he's crucified? Condemning fans because they buy his T-shirts has nothing to do how he plays.

Honestly, I don't have much faith in anything you spit out on this forum.

He's had some nice plays ...

Haley says he runs great routes and he should know, I guess. But I don't yet see the extreme, uber-dangerous, offensive threat that some guys seem to be seeing in McCluster. I'm probably wrong about that, though ... as I have been about so many things this year. It appears I may have been wrong about Cassel and I was way wrong about Milton "Mothman" Matherssen. I honestly thought that guy was going to be a superstar in the NFL. In retrospect (and due to my unbridled enthusiasm for the guy), however, I overlooked the fact that the facemask would cancel out his greatest skill and inhibit his ability to chew off the arms of his opponent.

Then again, maybe McCluster could help us on punt returns ... that would be nice. Arenas is nicked up and is playing his ass off as a DB.

Arenas is doing an incredible job right now, so many people say he was a "complementary" pick, but if he could become a steal if he develops into a solid cornerback.

It is no coincidence that the Chiefs had to find their offensive identity again, after McCluster was hurt. There are two different ways to stretch a defense. Horizontally and vertically. McCluster did a good job of stretching the defense horizontally, even when he wasn't getting the ball. It was easier to run the ball with him in the game.

The loss of McCluster and the blowout at Denver have allowed the Chiefs to explore the downfield passing game.

McCluster also opened up things for Moeaki early in the season, by pulling the coverage up. Teams were more worried about McCluster getting loose than Moeaki.

I think that the addition of McCluster could be big for the offense. I am also worried that Cassel will become check down Charlie with him back in there.

I don't think he will, I think Matt has progressed to the point that he is reading the defenses better. McCluster will be instrumental on screens and reverses.

I don't see how anyone could bash the pick..... but then again, the planet knows best.... they prove it all the time by nailing opinions of guys like Tamba Hali.

A fan should be excited to see if he can reach his potential. Seems you'd rather watch him fail just to tell us 'I told you so.'

This is Chiefs planet.... that's kind of the 'in' thing here. I thought you knew.

The only reason I hate on McCluster is because he hasn't done shit and people prop him up as some kind of playmaker.


This is all anyone needs to know about your ability (or lack thereof) to evaluate players.

The return TD and SF TD show his talent and that he has indeed "done shit" this season. While he hasn't dominated this year, I will take his 7.96 yards per touch game in game out. He has definitely been "over-hyped" but that doesn't mean he's not been good for us when he's on the field.

Dude! do you hate kittens and mother teresa too!? what the hell has mccluster done that you do not like him,,, The return for a TD? the touchdown against SF? Did him and Cassel team up and kill your dog?

****ing a!

Want to comment on these particular words in your sentence.

Yeah that is something in which I think is very overlooked in the Chiefs successful season. He's a big reason why the Chiefs are ahead of the Chargers right now.

The return for the TD made the difference in that game. And that was something thats long past, and probably many of us wouldn't even think about right now. Thank you for the reminder btw.

One thing about it, with McCluster not playing the last few games, he should be well rested and provide a lot of energy the rest of the season.

He shouldn't hit the rookie wall this year.

McCluster made the biggest play of the season. Without that return, we are a game back of the Chargers.

It is no coincidence that the Chiefs had to find their offensive identity again, after McCluster was hurt. There are two different ways to stretch a defense. Horizontally and vertically.

McCluster has probably received more unwarranted love than Cassel has received unwarranted criticism.

Shiny!

Totally disagree...

He had made 2 or 3 WOW catches...albeit not for big gains...but ones on the sideline where I had no idea he could make a play like that...

He knows where the chains are...

and he's electrifying...teams have to account for him in the slot, split out, out of the backfield or on reverses...

and he's a better returner than Arenas (although our special teams haven't looked so special as of late)...

either way...it's funny that these number guys want to tell us Cassel's numbers don't mean anything but McCluster sucks because he doesn't have numbers...

Make up your damn minds...if we're doing the "eye test" thing...McCluster is a damn fine football player...we all see it.

What is unwarranted about loving a player that makes big plays in many different ways? He is a utility player ala Reggie Bush. He is never going to be at the top of any one statistic in any one category but his impact can be just as big as any player who plays one position.

He was a full participant in several practices last week. Speculation on the radio today that he found his way into the doghouse, Bowe style '09. No clue if this has any legitimacy, as KK is not a trustworthy source.

Damn already?

yeah just like we were losing Charles

and just like Haley and Weis were at each other's throats

Chiefs won't give the local media anything so they create their own "stories"...

I'm not saying he's not a talented player or that he hasn't had some very nice moments this year. What I am saying, however, is that he hasn't been on the field long enough for him to have earned the rave reviews.

He might, but he hasn't yet.
