    Default Thoughts on LJ?


    0 Not allowed!
    I am wondering how everyone think LJ did in his return. I thought he was decent. He broke some tackles and fought for yardage (unfortunately he was breaking tackles before he got to the line of scrimmage). I think Gailey is once again being brilliant in utilizing LJ with the spread. LJ is good when he runs north-south, so he put him in a shotgun I formation, brilliant.

    LJ had 3.5 ypc with inconsistent blocking on the line.

    Im curious to hear your opinions ...

    LJ did good. Not great or bad - good. I can't say he's worth his money or anything, but we didn't lose the game because he couldn't run the ball either.

    I can't think of many RBs who would do better behind our line.

    agreed makes you wonder how good this offense would be with a better o-line

    If our o-line was better, we would be a top-15 offense. We could have punched in that 1 yard run with LJ. We wouldn't have to run the spread and we could maybe win the time of possession, saving our defense its humiliations.

    I think rebuilding our OL is our first and foremost priority.

    I agree on all of those points. I just hope Thigpen turns out to be the real deal for the rest of the season, so we dont draft a QB in the first round.

    I think, no matter how Thigpen does the rest of the season, that we can wait until the 2nd-3rd to draft a QB. But let's not wait until the 6th, 7th, or never and say all we need is Thigpen. That's what we did for years with Green and Croyle, and look where it got us. Draft Colt McCoy in the 2nd, if available, and sit him behind Tyler in case of injury. If Tyler ends up flaming out next year, we have a QB in the wings. If Tyler ends up a perrenial pro-bowler, we trade McCoy for a 1st rounder. If nothing else, we have a legitimate backup at our traditionally thinnest position.

    If we can draft backup safeties, RBs, and TEs in the 3rd, we should be able to draft a backup QB.

    Colt McCoy won't enter the draft this year. He's too smart to be lured into the NFL early. He'll stick it out through his senior year and pad his superior numbers. That being said, we shouldn't draft a player simply because they're there when we pick. We need to draft players we need, and that starts with the O-line.

    I'd say a defense that can't produce consistently outside of Red Zone stands is in pretty serious "need".

    If we don't take 58 in the first round, we're idiots who deserve to lose.

    Assuming we continue on with the C-2 variant, he's the Linebacker we need to bring some long over due fire back to Chiefs Defense:
