View Full Version : Your call: Most Improved/Impressive Chief in 2009?

News around Arrowhead seems to be a bit dry as of late with the draft now behind us and UDFAs slowing down to a trickle (Chase Patton got a workout with the Chiefs FYI). Now with rookie training camps in session and mandatorys/OTAs approaching things will start to shape up slowly but surely.

That being said, I'd like to see what and where everyone's opinions stand in regards to whom will be show the most improvement or be the most impressive Chief coming into the 2009 season.

In all seriousness my prediction for the 2009 season's most improved player will be Derrick Johnson.

After 4-years playing around the range of 'mediocre to better then good' range the new stable of veteran LB leadership, defensive leadership in general, a new scheme, and the makings of a defensive line for the first time in his career will free up Derrick to play within his game and really come into his own and live up to his potentail this season.

Thoughts/Opinions/Questions?

Try to leave 09 rookies out of the discussion.

I foresee Tamba Hali being the most improved impressive Chief in 2009. Call me crazy, but If you move him to a pass rusher, I believe he will own. My second choice is D Bowe.

This will be a popular pick, but Bernard Pollard has a major opportunity ahead of him this season. He will be able to get in on every play, if he does well.

After Bernard, I'd guess DJ. I think he will get alot of chances to rush the passer, and make a name for himself.

If LJ is truly motivated and the O-Line improves just a little bit.. Maybe LJ?

LJ should have the biggest impact.. Cassel will get hurt just like Croyle and Thigpen will once again take over...:)

Pollard. By far. He was built to play SS in a 3-4.

LJ will probably be much better as well.

Also, with a year under his belt, Albert should hopefully improve to be a great LT even when not in the spread.

It had better be Bowe. I do not hate you Canada, but I am green with envy!!!

I hope everyone on the team after all there was not to many bright spots last year. I mean with a 2-14 record it looks like no one was playing very good.

I disagree about bright spots. I thought Tyler Thigpen, Mark Bradley, Connor Barth, and Brandon Flowers were all bright spots. Jamal Charles was even fun to watch, when he could keep himself healthy.


As far as who will be most improved this year? My crystal ball is broken, but I'm hoping for LJ and/or Dorsey.

I did say not to many I didn't say no bright spots.

I'm going with Tank. I think putting him at NT and telling him to be a bull, go straight upfield, will be good for him.

I normally would say Bowe, but with 88 being gone I think he will see more coverage. He will still be a stud, but just more coverage so he doesn't get the most improved/impressive. Most improved/impressive will go to Dorsey. I think even he knows he needs to step it up and play closer to expectations, I think 09 will be the year where Chief fans see why he was drafted so early last year

I agree. IMO I can't decide on who has improved the most but I think the best improvements will take place this year!:yahoo:
