    Ok, Wikipedia cleared it up some for me. Sounds like it relies on a lot of double teams initially and then breaking off to take out linebackers. I'm really simplifying it, but hey, I hope it's effective.

    I agree- I think now, with the free agency moves getting made for O-line, we need to address the safety gap, and then add depth to the O-line in the draft.

    Shaping up nicely so far this off season!!!!

    If he is up against a NT, he wont be alone in blocking him!! I think he is lighter because they use a lot of pulling guards and speed is an asset as much as size. Just a guess
    The only reason a beer sweats around Canada is because he's decided it will be the next beer he drinks.

    Ok ok ok, we're all happy. Losing Lilja was one of many Carl Peterson blunders, and strangely enough one that he admitted was a mistake.

    Having a probowl center and a super bowl starting right guard is definitely an upgrade, even if it's an upgrade over our backups.

    However, I am still not on the the Berry Bandwagon. I have two reasons why:

    1. Waters is getting old, and Wiegmann is old. In the next two years, both will likely need to have replacements.

    2. Albert was one of the worst left tackles last year for allowing sacks. He gave up nine. i'm not saying he sucks, but we should not, in any way, feel that we are "set" at any position on the offensive line.

    3. At the fifth pick, Berry would command 11 mil a year, making him the HIGHEST PAID SAFETY IN THE LEAGUE without ever playing a snap in the NFL. that means we could sign Polamalu, reed, Sanders, Dawkins, Rolle, anyone...and it would have been cheaper. It's just bad business. Even if berry comes in, and from day one, is the BEST safety in the league...he still would be overpaid for his position.

    If Okung falls, you draft him. If he is gone, you look to trade out.

    Our options:

    1. trade down
    2. our highest rated left tackle
    3. second highest rated LT

    I have to go along with this. The signing of Lilja did a lot to bolster this offensive line and I like the idea, but we are not in a position to say this is done yet.

    While I am not going to turn down Berry if we get him, and it looks more like we might take him with the moves we are making, I believe that Pioli is going to think long and hard before spending that kind of money on a safety.

    I am actually leaning toward the Nose Tackle bandwagon at this point. I anticipate that is the direction we will go this draft more and more.


    Are you man enough? Eric Berry? Apparently Not!

    Like the off season moves but I am still VERY concerned with the LEFT side of our line. Waters and Albert were piss poor last season. That side IMO is much more important than the right side of the line.

    The Chiefs still have a decent amount of cash to spend. If we were to draft Berry we could sign him to a long term deal, paying him a lot up front and very little through the remainder of his deal. This would benefit the Chiefs organization throughout the future and would be another building block towards assembling a winning team and a winning franchise. Berry will undoubtedly be the best player available when we pick if he's still there and he fits a team need. To me the choice is clear; Berry is our man.
