    Default Thoughts on the 3-4?


    0 Not allowed!
    Personally I love the idea of running the 3-4 defense. I was really glad when we got Demorrio Williams and I think in a 3-4 he will be very dominate. Glen dorsey would make a good de in a 3-4 and I think Tank could be a beast nose tackle because the guy is strong as an ox. of course alot of this determines on if we can get curry or not. If Curry goes first like some Mocks are suggesting I see us taking Raji or Orapko either one or beast to me and I just finished watching some video of Raji and that guy is a monster ! Im going to watch Orapko right now but I am just curious on IF we did have to draft Raji could tank make a good 3-4 DE kinda like olshanksy for the Chargers ? Not fast but strong as hell and frees paths for linebackers. We may draft Orapko but I am hoping Curry is there and we welcome a beast to the Chiefs. I think we got to go Defense in this draft and maybe just maybe Andre Smith will fall to us in the 3rd round since he is a dumbass but he can play. Sorry got a little off track here lol

I love Curry and would take him first but if he's gone Orakpo does make sense to me.

    I live in Texas and can say from personally wtaching Orapko in the field he is a beast who I would love to see him in red and gold

    Absolutely. I think he has actually underachieved to date (he has too much potential) but I think he perfectly fits our needs as well. We are a current 4-3 team that would like to start morphing into a 3-4 or at the very least run some hybrid and we had the worst pass rush in the entire NFL last season. Orakpo is a proven pass rusher, can put his hand down in the dirt and play the end in the 4-3 or stand up and be a rush backer for us in a 3-4. Much like Curry (who I love) has the versatility to play all backer spots, Orakpo brings a lot of versatility as well.

    Curry is the man IF he falls to us and right now that is looking like a big IF. I think that we either go Orapko or LT or Trade down. I just don't see raji as being that good and worth a third pick. I really think as a chiefs fan you would look at Dorsey and Tyler and not see what I do. Tank is strong as an Ox and the only reason that our DT's had such a hard time last year was because we had NO ends whatsoever and besides DJ and the occasional apperance of D Williams our linebackers weren't that much help either.

    Curry was looking like an IF, but not anymore. With Detroit trading for Julian Peterson, they have the linebacker corps pretty secured. Then the Rams cut Pace and Holt, so they will either go OT or WR to replace those holes (I think they are going Crabtree). Which means Curry will fall to us at 3 and we will get the player this team needs. This is not going to be a one year fix for defense or offense. So take the best players available this season, and use plug in players in all those other spots. Then work on making it better next season.

    I am of the mindset that both defensive formations are effective if you have the right personnel to run it.

    I don't think we have had the front four in a long time to be an effective 4-3 and I am not sure even after the draft if we will have the right personnel for a 3-4. I believe the coaches realize this to and that is why they are saying they will run some sort of hybrid.


    Are you man enough? Eric Berry? Apparently Not!
