Our prayers have been answered!! NO more Dishman!!! However, I don't see how they cut Dar Dar...he looked pretty good returning kicks.

Mike

Looks like they kept Waters over Smith too. Jeff Smith was cut!!!!! Yes!

Something I noticed. All of the WR we cut were 5'9" (Bruce, DarDar, Kitchins). I think this goes to the "Taller is Better" mantra of Gun's.

Ok, Gun is starting to make this team like a LOT of the fans wanted. Who did we hear about getting the axe? Most everyone wanted these players GONE...Now they are.

Dishman


I'm pleased...This team is definitely in a metamorpisis...

I guess Carlton Gray was kept! His cap number must be low http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

Overall this is good news, I think they did a good job. Keeping Donald Willis and Darnell Alford is good for the future of the O-line IMO.

Cool! My Dishman prediction was actually right! I'm just glad my Anders prediction was wrong... http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

My biggest disappointment was DarDar, everytime he touched the ball he did something good. He made people miss when he played WR, he looked like a playmaker.

I think our secondary could have some HUGE issues this season. We might have one of the most likely to get burned secondaries in the league.

Glad to see this bum get his walking papers. Highway 26 no longer runs through Kansas City.

Wonder if the Raiders will sign him?

Morpheus,

True enough, however, I'm willing to trade a season of potential burning to get a bunch of hard hitting, fast, young guys back there. That's the only way we're going to get better, throw them into the fire.

Dishman a Donk?

Morphious, I agree wholeheartedly.....What does Dar Dar have to do to make this team?<BR>

Dar Dar needs to grow another 3 or 4 inches.

The cut of Word really surprises me. Gun always talked the guy up.

MCF - True, but still is going to be very painful for most of us to watch.

I thought I heard that Dunn had some setback with his knee, but heard he was a killer blocker.

I was glad to see both Anders and Hall make this team, I unfortunitly don't see Hall getting any playing time other then RB. He, like DarDar, looked like he could make something happen on every play.

Chiefnj - That is probably true, but one of the stupidest things I have ever heard. When size matters more then playmaking there are a couple of things wrong. I would personally have taken a short RB like Sanders then I would take a big guy like Moreau.

I actually posed the question as to whether KC would keep 5 DTs and 3 DEs, and they did. Kind of surprising that it happend though. Word wasn't producing in games, I guess.

Mike

Q: Who's your nickel back now ?

CUNNINGHAM: "(CB) Patrick Dennis or (CB) William Bartee can step up. We have (CB) Carlton Gray still on the roster and he has a chance to do that. But we're going to pick the best players to go on the field and that's something we've addressed for a year.<BR>

Gotta agree with Morph...Dar Dar surprised me. What good is the height if you can't get separation? http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/confused.gif

WOW,

I'll eat crow for Guaranteeing that Dishman wouldn't be cut. I'm surprised, but happy.

I'm also shocked by DadDar, Word, and keeping Gray.

Obviously the coaches know something we don't.

They announced closed practices all week!

Luz
more surprises to come...

Luz,
I also just read about the closed Practices.
I'm in the minority here, but I really think you will see a "surprise" at the HB/FB postion come opening day.

I also look for them to sign a WR this week.

GMan - Thanks, that answers my question about Dunn, he is still injured and Waters may have to play his position.

I have a feeling that Gray is only here because of the cap numbers, maybe we can dump him June 1st next offseason.

He did sound a little worried about our D and them not having enough expirience, so we could be in for a long season there.

We couldn't cut Gray - his cap hit would have been nasty. After this season, expect him sent packing!

I think I'm the most surprised about Jeff Smith. I thought he was a capable backup to all 3 interior O line positions! http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/confused.gif

This is my signature!! There are many like it but this one is mine!!

Clint - According to Bob Gretz, Waters (our backup C) has more potential than Smith, so we went with youth and potential over experience (I never liked Smith anyway). Blackshear's our top backup at OG, and Willis is probably a better option than Smith also.
