Add in Powe in the 7th rd and Kendrick Lewis in the 6th. Not every pick in our drafts have been bad. At least give credit where credit is due.
except that Arenas is not a solid nickel. and you dont use 2nd round picks on ****ing nickel CBs/slow return guys.
There is no credit to be given there.
And Kendrick Lewis hasnt even played a down this season yet. Lots of help he is. Oh we can just wait til next year when he is healthy maybe we will have a good season then.
I am not a glass half full guy. I don't like WAITING for guys to develop or perform. There is good talent in their prime right now on this team in DJ, Flowers, Hali, etc and you are just going to give Pioli credit for getting a bunch of developmental players that maybe good seasons from now. That does not help this team today in the present day, at all. Four seasons of that.
And Pioli's failures are lot more frequent that his minimal successes.
Jake O Connell
the list goes on and on.
So he hit on Justin Houston and Eric Berry. And then no other play maker after that. Just a bunch of role players.
I am really excited he went out and brought in FA talent over the years like Mike Brown, Bobby Engram, Zach Thomas, Steve Breaston, Peyton Hillis, Kevin Boss, etc. I mean those FA trash heap over the last 4 years really put this team over the hump didnt it.
Don't spend money to keep homegrown Chiefs talent in house but will bring in any cheap average veteran to just be a guy. The Scott Pioli Way
