Deberg and he was trolling. As per usual.

Bolton has missed only 1 tackle in 6 games. That’s exactly what this defense needs…consistency.

He’s never gonna be a good pass defender but as a MLB that’s what you want. Draft a better safety to cover TE’s and also use Gay to defend those as well

Chris Meck 10-19-2021 09:15 AM

He's got really good instincts, which allows him to play faster than his measured times would indicate. I would imagine as time goes on and he learns more, that will show even more. Looks like a damned good pick so far.

He's good at run stuffing at this point, however, he still struggles in pass coverage. Some are just bad drops in zone or getting to the flats, that should improve.

He's been very good at diagnosing runs early and getting up towards the line of scrimmage before blockers can engage at the second level. He'll have lots of opportunities against the Titans to put that skill to use.

No value in that/Mecca

Mecca was dropped on his head as an already reeruned baby.

I understand the positional value argument, but this team just needs good football players right now.

One of our best players is a TE and another is a S and another is a.. well, was a DT. Our best linemen are a G and a C. Conventionally those positions would be considered low value.

RunKC 10-25-2021 01:39 PM

A smart LB that can tackle, be around the ball constantly and be the QB of the defense has incredible value.

He was also a good coverage backer in college so letís see how he develops

Yeah, Bolton has been the lone bright spot on the entire defense this season.

Danna has been decent, too.

Positives: Bolton, Danna, Fenton and Wharton have had their moments, as has HB (Baltimore).

Negatives: Reed, Hitchens, Sorenson, Hughes, Nieman

Inconclusive/Ghosts: Jones, Clark, Thornhill, Ward, Baker, Sneed, Gay


If we can get just some of the ghosts into the positive column, the defense can get us to at least in the 15-25 ranking range, rather than 32 in every category like we are now.

If our defense can give the ball back to Mahomes more, and get a handful of stops, the offense can begin to rebuild its confidence, not press as much, and settle back into a playoff contender.

If we make the playoffs even as the 7 seed, anything can happen from there.

If this team pulls their head halfway out of their ass the rest of the AFC will be shitting their pants in the playoffs.

Nobody will want to face the Chiefs because they know the ceiling is higher than any other teamsí ceiling. (Maybe not TB. They are rolling)

Thatís the problem though, they only got out to their ears against a bad Washington team and have pulled an ostrich act against contenders.
