I agree that the right side of the OL has been terrible, but I still take Goff over McIntosh due to the experience factor. For now Goff is a stopgap until we can find a more permanent guy to play RG.
These guys are pretty much o-line filler, but as long as they keep Cassel upright this season they'll be fine. The Chiefs o-line really can't get any worse.
Hey guys, Miami fan here. I signed up before the phins @Chiefs game last year, just for some friendly discussions and have been checking in on and off ever since because of all the classy Chiefs fans on here. :)
Here's my take:
Someone mentioned that the only reason the Dolphins traded those guys was because of our depth. That would be correct. Ndukwe did a pretty nice job for us most of the year, but he just didn't have a chance compared to the RG we drafted last year in Donald Thomas. I don't think he's great, but I think he might do a decent job for you.
Alleman has flashed, but seems inconsistent. Maybe a change of scenery could help him. He did piss me off in wk 17 @ the jets last year where he drew two stupid penalties, but I think he can improve.
Anyway, both of them are at least decent IMO and if your O-line is as terrible as some have stated in this thread (didn't look that bad to me last year - you did put up a good few points on Miami,) then I would think this should be a pretty good trade for you.
I would be VERY surprised if you gave up anything more than a conditional 5th or a 6th round pick. Especially considering the family ties...
Heya I'm a lurking dolphins fan. Let me put my spin on it. For a 6th rounder, even a 5th rounder you got a good deal. These guys are solid but not spectacular. If you look at the Dolphins playoff game against the Ravens they shut the Dolphins offense down. They will struggle against top rated defensive line. These guys aren't top tier guys. They could definitely start or be a solid backup on a lot of teams. The Dolphins just have seriously solid beef. Jake Long, Jake Groves, Vernon Carey, Donald Thomas, Shawn Murphy, Joe Berger the Dolphins are just loaded enough with talent that these guys are expendable. The Dolphins I keep hearing have the most expensive line in football. The Chiefs did well but not spectacular out of this. Good luck!
LOL. I guess it's Dolphins night at Chiefs Crowd. :)
I'm just excited they are doing something about the o line problem. at least they're trying.
hey dolphin fans, i hear marino is coming back. is it true?! :D
