Gretz: Dorsey Making Progress … Friday Cup O’Chiefs

Dorsey Making Progress … Friday Cup O’Chiefs
September 25, 2009 - Bob Gretz |

Glenn Dorsey pondered the question for a few seconds.

“Yeah, I’d say it was my best game so far,” said the Chiefs second-year defensive end. “I’m feeling more comfortable, I’ve lost some weight and I’m trying to get better every day.

“The more opportunities I get, the more reps I get, the more games I play in, the more that comfort grows.

Dorsey was speaking about his performance last Sunday against Oakland. Upon review of the tape by the Chiefs coaching staff, the team’s 2008 No. 1 draft choice was credited with five tackles. He also leaped high to knock down a screen pass attempt by former college teammate, Raiders QB JaMarcus Russell.

Besides showing he has a pretty good vertical leap for a guy that’s just less than 300 pounds, Dorsey was active up and down the line of scrimmage. One of the big reasons the Chiefs defense did such a good job stopping the Raiders running game was Dorsey shedding blocks and getting to the point of attack.

It’s something he must continue to do when the Chiefs face the Eagles in Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon.

It was the Russell pass that Dorsey knocked down that everyone watching the game saw and remembered.

“I was going up field and I saw the quarterback backing up, he just kept backing up, so I knew it was a screen,” said Dorsey. “I didn’t know how close the running back was to me and I didn’t want to turn around and look because when you do that, I would have lost the quarterback.

“I just tried to jump up and bat the ball, not knowing if he was going to throw it over me or right to me. He ended up throwing it right to me.”

If Dorsey had been able to hold on to the ball it would have been six points, but the pass was traveling too fast and he was off-balance as he came back down to earth after his mighty leap.

“Man, I wish I could have held on to that ball,” said Dorsey. “That would have been a big play for us, the kind of play we need right now.”

It was a sign of progress in Dorsey’s play, certainly enough progress that the head coach even had good things to say about Dorsey this week.

“I think that Glenn has continued to make progress in the last few weeks,” said Haley. “He was a guy who kind of let himself go shape-wise, conditioning-wise in the offseason. It was a long way back (but) he’s worked hard to get back and I think he’s finally in a position body-weight and condition-wise where he can go to work and start to see some improvement.

“He’s seeing that and that is leading to some confidence on his part and I think that’s all good stuff. The important thing is that he stays where he’s at or better on his conditioning and stays on top of that week-in and week-out. It continues to let that confidence build and be a disruptive player for us.”

In today’s NFL, most teams like to rotate the defensive linemen in platoons to keep them fresher. With the ‘09 Chiefs defense so far, the starting group of Dorsey, Tyson Jackson and Tank Tyler is playing about 75 percent of the snaps. That’s fine with Dorsey.

“I don’t feel like I’m gassed in the game,” said Dorsey. “I feel like I’ve got pretty good stamina and losing the weight helped there too. All that’s OK with me, the more the better.”

Many fans and some in the media have labeled Dorsey’s rookie season as a bust. The facts don’t back up that claim. His production in his first year was better or matched that of most rookie defensive linemen, especially those playing inside at defensive tackle. Dorsey finished with 50 total tackles and one sack.

It’s the second season where highly-drafted defensive linemen show they are hits or misses. And in his second year, Dorsey is playing a different position in the Chiefs new defensive scheme, moving from tackle to end. Based on what he showed against the Raiders, Dorsey’s production line is moving upward.

“I like the spot and it feels more comfortable every game,” said Dorsey. “I know I can play the position and the more reps I get, the more I’m going to get done.”

SIGNINGS, INJURIES & MOVEMENT AROUND THE LEAGUE

* COWBOYS – COO Stephen Jones was named by the NFL to the league’s Competition Committee.
* GIANTS – placed S Kenny Phillips on injured reserve list; claimed Aaron Rouse on waivers (Packers).
* TEXANS – signed S Bernard Pollard; placed G Chester Pitts on the injured-reserve list (knee).

FROM THE PAGES OF CHIEFS HISTORY


On September 25, 1960, the Dallas Texans played their first home game at the Cotton Bowl beating the Los Angeles Chargers 17-0. (More details later today.)

On September 25, 1966, the Chiefs beat the Patriots 43-24 at Boston’s Fenway Park (right) before a crowd of 22,641 fans. QB Len Dawson threw five touchdown passes on the afternoon, including three to WR Chris Burford, from 15, 25 and 31 yards. Dawson also completed scoring passes of 14 yards to RB Curtis McClinton and 9 yards to RB Mike Garrett. Burford finished the game with 10 catches for 155 yards, while WR Otis Taylor caught seven passes for 82 yards. Safety Johnny Robinson had a pair of INTs against Boston QB Babe Parilli.

On September 25, 1977, the Chiefs lost their ‘77 home opener to the San Diego Chargers 23-7 at Arrowhead Stadium. Unable to do much against the Chargers defense, QB Mike Livingston directed the Chiefs offense to just 149 total yards, with the only score coming on a 19-yard TD pass from Livingston to WR Henry Marshall. San Diego scored on a 17-yard interception return by DE Leroy Jones. The Chargers kept getting good field position thanks to the punt returns of Johnny Rodgers, who returned seven for 130 yards, including one punt he returned for 52 yards.

On September 25, 1988, the Chiefs beat the San Diego Chargers 24-23 at Arrowhead Stadium. A third quarter safety by Chiefs DT Bill Maas when he sacked San Diego QB Babe Laufenberg in the end zone proved to be the winning points. The Chargers came back and scored 10 points in the fourth quarter, but fell short of the comeback victory. QB Steve DeBerg threw three touchdown passes, including a pair to RB Paul Palmer of 71 and six yards. WR Stephone Paige caught the other one, from two yards out. FS Deron Cherry had an interception and the Chiefs had three sacks, half of those from Maas. Palmer had 76 yards rushing and 122 yards receiving in the game.

On September 25, 1994, the Chiefs lost at home to Los Angeles Rams 16-0. The Chiefs had started the season 3-0, after their successful ‘93 season when they went to the AFC Championship Game. Offensively, the Chiefs stumbled as QB Joe Montana threw three interceptions and completed less than 50 percent of his passes. Rams RB Jerome Bettis ran 35 times for 132 yards, while Marcus Allen led the Chiefs in rushing with 15 carries for 59 yards. The game’s only TD was a 72-yard pass from QB Chris Chandler to WR Flipper Anderson.

Wow imagine that. Dorsey isn't a bust at defensive tackle after only his rookie season! Who knew?

That's irrelevant where he was drafted at. It was a good play, and DL aren't drafted to catch interceptions.

Glenn Dorsey is a monster. I loved the pick when we took him last year and definitely think him and Jackson can be great DEs for us for a long time. He's a helluva football player, which is what the Chiefs need right now.

Now, if only we can get a solid DT, about 4 more LBs and a couple of Safeties, we'll be set on defense...

He played a heck of a game against the Raiders. I hope he's starting to turn the corner on becoming an upper-echelon player.

Ehhh...I thought Tank was really solid against the Faid. If he holds up like that all season, I think we'll be more than fine on the D-line.

We better be. Lord knows we've been investing enough of our picks on improving it.
