These are about the only names I recognize, and it couldn't have come soon enough for Svitek. I, too, hope there is a spot for Sippio on the practice squad.

Tre Stallings was on our O-line for a bit last season to fill in for injuries. Obviously, he stunk.

Looking at some of the players cut by other teams, the Chiefs could pick up some Quarterback help if they were so inclined. They want young players and there are young QB prospects out there with Chris Simms and Bruce Gradkowski. After watching Thigpen and Croyle this preseason I'd be interested to see the Chiefs take a look at both guys,

I am actually a bit surprised that they cut the FB Manderino. I didnt think he played bad or anything and I really thought the Chiefs wanted to go with a true FB this yr and not a transplant from another position. I guess for the time being Cottam will turn into the next Jason Dunn (Atleast for now) :D

Looking through the other roster cuts, I have seen some interesting cuts. One of which is QB Andre Woodson, he was touted to be a high pick coming into the draft and was just released by the Giants, I have seen several running backs including Kenton Keith from the Colts last year although I dont feel that the Chiefs need any running backs.

I saw J Lamen who was a good linebacker for the Illini on the cuts and one very interesting cut the Titans cut Calvin Lowry he is a third year guy that played in all 16 games the last 2 years and started 11 last year. I dont see him lasting long but if we could use another safety that would be a nice pick. Although I dont know enough about him to know the downside.

Kicker Josh Huston was waived by the Giants as well they then signed John Carney so it looks like if Nick Novak doesnt get the job done the Chiefs may not have Carney to fall back on this year. Although I hope it doesnt come to this.

I found all of this info at http://blogs.nfl.com/category/news/

If anyone sees others they would like to add feel free. Jarome McDougle was another interesting one although I did not add him to my list.

Throughout the Preseason Mike Cox was the number one at FB so I wasnt suprised by losing Manderino and Cox is a rookie where Manderino had a couple of seasons under his belt. I was kinda suprised .. well not suprised but a little let down by releasing Derek Lokey, Larue Rumph and Steve Octavian (Octravian was first team O Line due to injuries).

Cox is a bright spot, thus far. I was just hoping for a FB that could block like T-Rich, but he can catch it and run over people! Big plus, there.

With Sippio it was probably his lack of size that got him cut. Hopefully, he'll make the practice squad. :D

Interesting observation but did anyone else notice that every one of the 12 Draft picks is either on the 53 or Physically Unable to Play or Non Football Injury lists. Just noticed that and yes I know it is still early after the initial cuts but either the team is too proud to let a draft pick go or they actually had good picks all the way though. I lean toward good picks all the way through.

I did see that they cut Wes Dacus to add Erik Walden, reading about Walden one place predicted him to go Undrafted Free Agent although the Cowgirls selected him in the 6th round ... and I hear he was really underrated but a great player ... guess we will see.

I too was hoping for another T Rich but T Rich was able to catch outta backfield, block and run. I was hoping Manderino was the package. I guess I have to hope Cox will come into his own.

I'm also very disappointed about the release of Sip.How are we going to let talent like that get away from us.Tek,I'll have to believe that Sip will come back to us during at least week 6 or 7 if we have a injured wide receiver.Sip had to be one of the best 3 arena football players to ever play the arena game.F it..............Sip will be back.

I'm taking the release of Sippio as a positive. We have all seen what Sippio is capable of... we all have opinions of him and his ability (most of them positive). But what does that say for the guys who weren't cut? We've brought in what, three or four new receivers this season?

Will Franklin
Maurice Price
Devard Darling
Kevin Robinson

I don't think i would take Sippio over any of those guys. I don't know much about Robinson, but he didn't take a spot away from Sippio anyway because he's on the PUP.

I'm just saying, we saw that Sippio belonged on this team last year... but that was LAST YEAR. I think the talent level at WR has risen to the point where Sippio probably shouldn't even be on the practice squad. And, that's more of a testament to the organization bringing in better talent at wide-out.

That's how i see it.

I think the game that really hurt Sippio was that one game against the Dolphins. He dropped like 5 passes, and simply didn't have a good game. I hate basing whether or not someone makes the team on one game, but that's just how it is.

Sippio wasn't even drafted and because he was one of the better AFL WRs doesn't mean anything.... ANYTHING. This is the NFL. If Sippio wasn't going to be the #2 WR, there's no room on this team for him. Since it's obvious that Darling is the KC #2, as an organization, if the younger guys show more promise in the long run, you have to go with those guys. Hell, Sip wasn't even competing for the #3 spot. Webb and Franklin pretty much have that battle locked up. So, what are we talking about here? MAYBE a #4, probably a #5 or #6.

Personally, I'd rather give guys like Price and Robinson a shot if they show more promise (which Price IS a better player) and nobody knows much about Robinson. You could be right. Sippio might be better than Robinson, but he's injured so it's a moot point. Robinson didn't take a spot from Sip.

As far as the fans, they've seen Sip make a couple catches and knew he was an AFL stud. You don't run an organization by how much fans like players. You have to do what is best for the organization. Otherwise, we'd still have Len Dawson at QB.

The Chiefs made the right decision at WR and i doubt the decision to cut him will come back to bite us in the butt... hell, has he even been picked up by anyone else? If he was that great of a WR, he would've been drafted out of college. He signed with the Dolphins in 2004, then was cut, played 3 years in the AFL then signed with the Chiefs.

Great players don't bounce around like that.

Darling being #2 is the only thing I really can't stand. He has no track record at all, not to mention he came from the Ravens......yeah.

He didn't catch a single pass in preseason, and dropped a couple. I, also, remember him running the wrong route a few times! I realize that he could still be learning the offense, but ugh. It just seems like we got him off the scrap-heap and decided to make him a #2 WR!

I agree. Both Webb and Franklin have shown more thus far than Darling and I think it's a very good possibility that those two guys may wind up #2 and #3 when all is said and done. There's got to be a reason why they've stuck with Darling so he may surprise. I certainly won't have a problem if he steps it up during the regular season and can be a consistent target. At this point, I haven't seen enough of him to pass judgment. Of the three, I can't help but play favorites a little bit with Franklin because he's out of MU.

The encouraging thing for me about our receiving corps behind Bowe, is the fact that we do have some decent talent there in Franklin and Webb. At least, I like to think so. As I said, I'm excited about Franklin and while Webb may not be a superstar, he has had some decent games for us and shown a few bright spots here and there.

jtandcrew
09-05-2008, 04:45 PM
I think the reason Darling came up to the #2 position is because Franklin has shown more potential and is fearless running the slot across the middle which is what he played alot in college. That being said, I think he has alot more potential from what ive seen than Darling has. As far as Webb? He has had how many seasons with us to crack the satarting line-up? (I ask since I really dont know how many seasons hes been with us, no sarcasm) He wasnt even able to unseat Kennison in the twilight of his career.

texaschief
09-05-2008, 05:14 PM
Darling played high school in san antonio. I've seen him play. He really has a lot of talent. I think he'll impress. He's obviously done more than anyone else at WR to this point according to the staff. He has less playing experience in the pros than Webb and he beat him out as well.

I think y'all need to give this guy half a season before getting on his case.

Three7s
09-05-2008, 05:17 PM
I'm just hoping that Franklin gets the #2 position when he's back from the injury and Webb gets the #3 spot. Oh, my opinion on Webb is that he has really good hands, but he lacks the quickness to get open.

I'm personally not saying hes not worth it. I just havent seen enough outta all 3 behind Bowe to make a real decision yet. Hell, we dont even know if Bowe is the real deal yet or not! He mighta had a fluke season although i doubt it. The other 3 has shown flashes of being a great player but not 1 has been as consistent. I think whoever it is is going to have a chance to have a good year since I feel Bowe is going to draw alot of double teams as will TG. In the end, going into the season I can see things either going good-great for the WR's but there IS alot of question marks.

Yeah, I would go with Franklin at this point also but, as I said before I think we will see him as more a slot reciever till Darling screws up if he does. Now, thats not saying that Franklin wont get his chance as the #2. Although, I think Webb will rotate in and out with Darling more than Franklin does.

The whole point to having a solid #2 WR on this team is that either Bowe OR Gonzo will be double teamed on almost every play. You can't double team both on the same play. I wish they would though... the Chiefs would dominate. The #2 WR needs to be able to make plays. All three of Webb, Franklin, and Darling can do that. What excites me about Darling is that yeah, Franklin and Webb have shown more in the preseason than Darling and yet, it still wasn't enough to un-seat Darling for #2. He must be doing something consistently well in practice not to lose his job.

The Chiefs didn't draft Franklin to be a #3 or #4 WR. I think that unless Darling just goes Houshmanzadeh on the Chiefs, that Franklin will end up as the #2 at some point in the next couple years.

I wasn't surprised about Sippio. I thought he wasnt that bad, he just isnt good enough for the NFL.

I think the reason Sippio was such a fan favorite was the fact he didnt drop balls. For too many years our recieving corps has had problems dropping balls. Until Bowe came along it seems we could never rely on a recieve to hold onto the ball, except Kennison at times. Sippio showed he could hold onto the ball and that got everyone jazzed about him. His problems were, great hands, slow legs. Bowe is the possesion reciever. We need a reciever to stretch the field. Sippio cant do that. I like Franklin IMO for stretching the field.

Me too. He's fast and plays with no fear. Like I said before though, I'm high on this guy already because he come out of MU. Go Tigers!

If you were high then I must of been super high when I saw Devard Darling outrun a Patriots defense while showing blazing speed with those smooth hands to catch that late clutch pass in the middle from Damon.If Darling continues to show blazing speed with that type of aggressive attitude then he's worthy of being a dominate wide receiver for our offense.Gonzo,Bowe,Darling,Will Franklin and web slinging Jeff Webb is straight out nasty.I slept on Darling for a certain reason but he's better than we expect.I'm saying though.........................Darling is fast as fu**.

Is that why he got caught? I guess he didn't kick it into that next gear huh. What, maybe 10 yards from a touchdown. I hope he continues to play well but I think those NE DBs tracked him down there.

I was wondering the same thing, I remember hearing how fast he was and was wondering if he is just a sprinter and out ran his burst or if he thought he had the td and slowed down. Or if the angle got him? I didnt get to see it so if anyone can shed some light I would love to hear and analyze.

It might have been the angle but I also think he wasn't as fast as those DBs. He split the two and took it right down the middle.

Darling never showed that blazing speed and aggressive on field attitude while being a Raven.Must be why Herm and Chan Gailey were so big on him during OTA's,Training Camp and the Preseason.He proved just that during the Patriots game.

Yes and I was sick to see how he got run down. He should have had the TD.

Darling - just doesn't sound like a football name to me.
