    Not who I personally wanted, but welcome to the Chiefs! I hope he plays up to his athleticism!

    Chiefs say DL Poe no longer Mr. Everything - Kansas City Chiefs - CBSSports.com RapidReports

    Confirmation that Poe will play NT. There was some talk that he could play DE.

    I cannot believe this! I have lost all faith in Pioli & Co.! I have the same feeling now, as I do after a gameday loss! Why not go with the safe pick like Decastro?! I am so tired of the good teams making good choices year after year, no matter where they pick and we continue to do stupid crap.I did not want Poe as our pick, obviously. I do not believe he is our answer at Nose. He seems to be nothing but a Combine Warrior. It looks like we bought into Combine Crap like the raiders do! I feel like we completely wasted our first round pick. I sincerely hope that I am wrong and pray that I eat my own words. I will happily admit it!

    I already said I wasn't happy with this pick earlier in the thread.

    I don't really understand how athleticism is really important in a 3-4 NT. To all of you Chiefs fans that drink whatever "kool aid" that the front office hands out, remember that it's ok to form your own opinion.


    Here's the main point: We need Poe to essentially serve as a clog, thats all. So in two years when all the Opie the Optimist start complaining about his sacks remember he's there to help the other guys.

    It's the same debate that was on the boards about Tyson Jackson and Glenn Dorsey being bust. The D-Line is there so the Linebackers can make plays. Justin Houston should be able to show his real potential.

    I hope he works out, I just can't understand using the 11th pick on a DT with so many question marks.

    You don't want to do that! The Chiefs would have a franchise qb with no o-line. We can't forget how important your o-line is.

    I was just venting my frustrating on the NT pick at 11. Drink some kool aid buddy.

    My thing is why do people say they would quit the Chiefs over something such as this... dumb statement to throw out there no matter how upset it makes one. i understand the feeling though... I just hope he works out.

    Well we'll see if Pioli has the insight that we brought him here for. I hope so. I'm happy they got the guy they wanted and hope in 2 years he's a monster.

    I wanted Decastro too, but we needed a NT badly. We already have a good line right now we picked up one of the best RT in the league, a very good blocking TE, Branden Albert's have been playing good Lilja is fine, hudson is going to be a stud between asamoah and mims we have two very good guards so to act like we have no O-line is ridiculous.

    Thats what good NT's do - occupy blockers which opens up lanes for the rest of the defense to pursue. Ragi had questions marks when he was drafted also, and is now considered one of the top 5 NT's in the league. Having said that, we will need Poe to be more than just a clog. We will need him to harass the passer and mow down runningbacks, and be constantly double teamed. I would venture to say that Hampton and Wilfork are more than just clogs. They anchor their respective defenses. We have needed a franchise NT since we installed the 3-4, and I think we finally got him. I don't think Memphis was well suited for Poe. Romeo will bring out the beast in this kid. Oughtta be fun.
    SHUT IT
