You think Magee is capable of starting on a 3-4 DL next season? These Dorsey trades are starting to get me worried....

a.) dorsey isn't exactly a perfect fit in a 3-4 scheme. Magee and Jackson were the no.1 and no.2 at the position coming out of college respectively....

hmmm... it will be interesting to see what happens.

(croses fingers to keep Dorsey)

From what I've read here with replies to the possibility of trading Dorsey, and from what I've witnessed with Dorsey's game on the field...I think it would be a mistake to trade Dorsey, regardless.

It appears Dorsey has quite a KC fan following, and it might set back many fans with their recent moral boost & belief in Pioli with hiring Weis & Crennel...if Dorsey is traded.

Only time will tell what will be, what was a right or wrong move by Pioli & Haley.

No way we trade Dorsey. He is on of the few draft picks from the last three years that actually appears to have some potential.

if we trade Dorsey that will be just another spot we have to fill.

Magee has done absolutely nothing to show that he can start.

With the way the Browns came into arrowhead and ran all over the Chiefs D theres no way that they will move him. The Run d instanly got better when he got back. He showed his value. Haley spoke very highly of him. I think all the talk about Detroit is just that talk. The Chiefs no they have a good player. I think that they are smart enought to no to keep him.

Unless theres a trade that they get a proven player that can fill in for dorsey and something eles I dont think theres any chance that Dorsey is moved. He is a very young player getting ready to go into his 3rd season thats usely when you no if a guy is going to be realy good or just a role player. Hopefuly dorsey shows he was a good pick at 5

I really do not have an opinion on this. I really do not know, if Magee could replace Dorsey, I think I will leave it up to the Coaches.

Going into his 3rd season he will show if he can pick up the 3-4 defense. Its a tough defense to pick up when your not used to running it. He will still have trade value after next season to a team that runs 4-3. This is not a decision that needs to be made this season without having a somewhat quality/somewhat proven back-up to fill his shoes. I personally think he will be fine and also did fairly good this season. I say give it 1 more year. As stated in a story before, Romeo is known for making quality linemen out of guys that werent totally protypical.

What about Gilberry? That guy did a better job filling in at DE and NT than Magee. I want Dorsey to stay too, but that entirely depends on what someone is going to offer for him!

More of a situational pass rusher. Gilberry's too small to help on 1st and 2nd downs. He's only like 265 lbs or something like that. He's definitely been a great find for 3rd down situations though!

I think Dorsey will be here and although I like Alex Magee but he is not ready. Dorsey is getting much better, especially against the run, so we need to hold on to him. Hopefully Jackson shows strides this year and that would help out Dorsey quite a bit.

I've heard they were going to trade Dorsey for Turk McBride of the Detroit Lions... J/K...

I think he'll stick around unless if Pioli and Co. decide to throw a curve ball and trade him hoping to get Suh or McCoy to play the 3-4 DE

Not going to happen. Dorsey is Suh except with a couple years of experience.

I hope he turns out that way. I think Suh might end up a little better. But Its to early to no that for sure.

i think this trade rumor thing may be Dorsey's idea. Apparently he isnt happy playing a 3-4 end... he wants to play in a 4-3 perhaps? please stay glenn, i love you...

I think it is just wishful thinking by the Lion's fans, seeing how they have Gun up there and they think that is the tie that gets it done.

Here you go MDChiefs! Middle of the second paragraph it says neither the Chiefs nor Dorsey are happy with the results of him switching to 3-4....

it doesn't say he is the one who wants to be traded, and i didn't mean to imply that either.... but it isn't too far out of the question to assume Dorsey isn't happy playing 3-4 end... i just hope he stays a Chief at the end of the day :) I think he is going to be a great player for us if so...

Not sure who wrote that blog article, but either they have some insider info, or they dont pay attention to what the Chiefs have said publicly in press conferences.

Todd Haley on Glenn Dorsey being one of the team's "Core" Players:

Glenn Dorsey is another guy that has made tremendous strides. I think that was evidenced by the fact that when he was missing for most of that Buffalo game and the Cleveland game that coincidentally they were games that we struggled versus the run. Glenn is a guy who made great progress after coming in to the off-season not looking like we wanted him to look. All these guys Iím talking about have critical off-seasons coming up and Glenn is one of those.

He spoke of Dorsey along with guys like Flowers, JC, and Hali.

It sounds like we were pretty happy about his play ...
