Should Bartee start over Wesley?

Do any of you think this would be the right move?

Too be honest, I watch Wesley play, and I'm quite disappointed. I think he's
the most overhyped, overrated safety to play in Kansas City. Im not impressed with his game at all. He doesnt HIT! Possibly that has to do with part of the reason he plays with no fire. Somebody needs to place fuel and light a flame under this guys a**, if Gun can't do it, he simply needs to be benched.

I just don't like the fact that he doesn't hit. Also, he misses too many tackles, and looks lost at times in coverage.

*We could use a new remedy at FS, perhaps Bartee?

I don't know if Bartee will be any better, but I'm willing to take a look at someone other than Wesley.

Wesley has looked pretty lost at times. It would hurt to start Bartee in game three and see how he does at FS.

I hear ya. Had I said this last year, I can imagine the reactions I would have received from others. I wouldn't be suprised if many asked "What are you smoking?"

I agree. I'm pretty disappointed in Wesley. And to think, Woods is WORSE and they together made up our starting backfield last year.

Wesley should fear for not only his job but his spot on the roster imo. He hasn't made a hit since his rookie season... and he actually acted schocked that we signed another saftey in the off season. Nice way to respond to competition.

I know what you're saying, but many folks here have been saying for some time that Bartee should be switched to safety. They were more than willing to give him a shot there before dumping him. They just didn't want to see him at CB anymore.

I haven't watched him play in the preseason yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's shown himself to be at least a serviceable safety. I had completely given up on him ever being able to contribute at CB.

Now, embracing Parker's "not bad does not equal good" philosophy, serviceable may not be good enough to start, and the fact that serviceable is better than Woods or Wesley shouldn't make us confident that Bartee is really a solution back there.

One thing you gotta remember, Gun drafted Bartee to switch him to corner.
Why, you may ask..
Because Gun thought Bartee had TOO MUCH ATHLETECISM to be just a safety.
Putting him back at his natural position should allow him to fully unleash his god-given athletic potential.
Plus, it's now ok for him to try to read the QB...

I'd say put the guy in there that is the fastest. I haven't seen anything that makes me think either one is a better hitter, but Wesley's speed is a major limitation to playing the position.

How often do you see phrases like "too much athleticism" and "god-given athletic potential" when talking about William Bartee?

It's almost comical. I remember last year we were clamoring to get Bartee in for McCleon. As usual, Bartee sucked. I'm amazed at how many times us Chiefs fans will allow ourselves to be duped into wanting Bartee on the field.

Preseason game 3 starting lineup should be:

Hicks, Dalton, Sims, Allen

Johnson, Mitchell, Bell

Surtain, Sapp

Knight, Bartee

Maybe he is athletic and all of that, but he always looks lost and confused and dare I say, scared of being on the field. I don't know though - what could it hurt to give him a shot these last two games?
