View Full Version : Chiefs Pretty sure the 2012 season rests on our DL.

I understand Dorsey is not long for this team, but look at this:

Dorsey
Poe
Jackson

All three are overdrafted, but at least the DEs have evolved into effective players, scheme-wise, warts and all.

At the very least, you can argue that having those two players will take the heat off Poe quite a bit this year.

I sure hope to god he's a fast learner, though. He's losing Dorsey after this season, and it's unclear what we're going to do when that happens, although Allen Bailey has the potential to be a monster.

God, if we could get all three of those guys to explode: Bailey becomes a terror against both run and pass (I think, of all our DL, Bailey's ceiling is the highest and his arrow's currently pointing up); Poe becomes a block of granite that can use his athleticism like Wilfork; and Jackson develops a meager passrush to compliment his run defense...

As it is, this is probably a Top 10 defense. If the DL lives up to their upside, it's a Top 3.

You're right. The 2012 season depends on your D line to break Manning in half. Good thread.

no, it depends on the QB, like always...

5 first rounders in the front 7. The Chiefs D should be playing like the Steel Curtain/'85 Bears/Purple People Eaters/90 Giants/Fearsome Foursome.

The defense will be better. And that is a good thing.

I would hope that Crennel and Pioli's job security now rest on this pick.

Yep - instead it's one of the worst assembled with #1's ...:banghead:

I'm not so sure about that. Is Berry at full speed? Probably not. Routt is not an upgrade over Carr. Poe might not be a factor. IMO, this defense still has far too many questions for a defense that is going on year 4 of a rebuild...

It has to right? I admire the balls it took to make such a move.

Next to finally taking a QB in the 1st, I think this is about the ballsiest think they could have done.

They'd have traded up in 2007 and taken Brady Quinn over Bowe.

I think so too, I don't hate the pick, but I don't expect him to come in and dominate this year. He's never been coached well and one of his knocks is a lack of instincts. I think this is a bit of a project, and a lot of fans are going to be impatient with it, unfortunately for Romeo.

Right, but big balls come with big risk. I would think that if they were going to push all the chips in with a boom or bust, it should have been an impact player.

True, but the NT is what could open up our defense and allow our existing impact players to be impactful.
