Broncos Thin at LB for 2012

+

Denver Post story about the Broncos being thin and in a tight spot at LB this seasn with DJ Williams being suspended for substance abuse violations (twice) and just a very thin group left after Von Miller With Williams out of the mix, the Broncos have only three linebackers with significant playing experience: Woodyard, Mays and strongside linebacker Von Miller, the reigning defensive rookie of the year. Behind them are second-year players Nate Irving (middle linebacker) and Mike Mohamed (strongside linebacker), sixth-round draft pick Danny Trevathan and undrafted rookies Steven Johnson, Jerry Franklin and Elliot Coffey. this is like Adam Teicher doing a report that says the Chiefs are thin at the QB position ... interesting read, and should have Chiefs fans grinning about possibilities in 2012

Is Stanzi Our Gabbert?

40

Alfie Crow over at SBNation Tampa bay did a bit on how Blaine Gabbert, despite his horrible 2011 season, absolutely has to be the starting QB for the Jags in 2012 and moving forward. Part of his argument is the question: "Is Chad Henne going to get you to the NFL playoffs?" Should we (should or will Pioli) ask the same question of Cassel (vs Stanzi)? Class, discuss!

Citizens Fund Stadium But Blackout Rule Persists - The Realities of the NFL

7

Roger Chamberlain walked off the floor of the Minnesota state senate having just watched as taxpayers went on the hook for an estimated $1 billion (at least) over 30 years for the construction, upkeep and debt service on a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings. He could only laugh in frustration. "What the NFL wants," the republican state senator said, "the NFL gets." All Chamberlain wanted was to assure that since so much taxpayer money was being handed over, those same taxpayers would be guaranteed local broadcasts of all Viking games no matter if the stadium was sold out. In effect, he wanted to make the NFL's blackout rule illegal in Minnesota. sounds like a reasonable request to me, and of course a request denied ... read more at link location

12 Angry Men Or The Dirty Dozen, whatever you want to call them, they are 12 football players who will be on the field for the 2012 Chiefs (sometimes 4-5 at a time) who were NOT on the field when the Chiefs were vying for a division title late last December. Read this list: Eric Berry, Jamaal Charles, Dontari Poe, Eric Winston, Tony Moeaki, Peyton Hillis, Kevin Boss, DaQuan Menzie, Brandon Siler, Cyrus Gray, Devon Wylie, Jeff Allen Notice no mention of Routt (cause Carr left) or QB, though not having Palko is worth a lot. Oh yeah, still going to add vet FAs (hopefully backup C, S, MLB, right?) This is just the stuff I think about during staff meetings @ work... from the Fanposts by i like the chiefs

Weeden will get drafted before Tannehill Here is my CRAZY, UNBELIEVABLE prediction for the 2012 NFL Draft Weeden will get drafted as the 3rd QB off the board before Tannehill. My reasoning is simple actually. Who ever drafts the 3rd QB off the board will be reaching so why reach for a player unless he can help you right away? Tannehill by all accounts does not have the experience to start right away in the NFL, but Weeden is a much more mature, pro ready quarter back that can come in and start this year. The only knock against him is his age which in this case can also be considered a strength. Flame away from the Fanposts by Migidee

Looking for a fan site I am looking for a little help here from all you chiefs fans, I am a member of http://www.kcchiefsgames.com/ which is a great site for viewing old chief games. Unfortunately my better half is a diehard steeler fan and is looking for a similar site for them. All you married guys out there know that a happy marriage begins with keeping the little lady happy. So if anyone knows of a site similar for the steelers, please post the link as she would be grateful. I have searched the web and have been unable to find anything myself, so thanks in advance to anyone that can help her. from the fanposts by Tooner

On Clark Judge's Team Draft Needs article If all I had to do is watch football and write about it for a living I think I could do a better job than some of these hacks. Here is what cbssports.com writer Clark Judge had to say about the Chiefs and then my take on his take. Clark says the Chiefs "were in the middle of a division race last season until quarterback Matt Cassel bowed out." -- The Chiefs actually made their push and GOT INTO the division race AFTER Cassel went out. It took a couple of blocked FG's in Wk16 to keep them from winning it. Clark thinks Thomas Jones is still a Chief for some reason. -- He's not. Clark points out the fact that Dorsey and Jackson "combined for one sack last year" insinuating the position needs upgrading. -- 3-4 DE's aren't primarily pass rushers in this scheme. When it comes to sacks, they are more like blockers for OLB's (Hali/Houston had 18 sacks). from the Fanposts by soutee

What about Terrance Newman? Why not add Newman on the cheap? The Cowboys cut him a while back and nobody ever picked him up. I think he'd be good insurance back there with Routt. He's still a good option and someone the Chiefs should look at. Our secondary is good already, imagine if we could lock up another good corner back there. It would be neat if we did and Newman turned out to be a steal from the Cowboys. From the Fanposts by tgeary20
