    Our drafts have been pretty much garbage over the last 3 years and it shows.

    What we have to look forward to is Vince Young and a nice young set of targets (imo B. Jones will be a solid number 1). I'm not sure about LenDale yet, but I'm anxious to see what he can do compared to what we have already. I'm sure he can at least average the 3ypc that we've been getting the past few years. I'm excited that our defensive line actually showed up last week. I love our outside linebackers. I like how PacMan has been playing and I think Hope had a solid first outing. I'm down on our entire coaching staff and front office for that matter. We're definately heading in the wrong direction under this regime.

    Why we refuse to draft LINEMEN with our high picks (or anywhere else for that matter) is beyond me. Look no farther than KC's success the last few years to see the importance of being dominating up front. They pretty much have no great skill position players (not counting TE of course) and scored what, almost 30 a game?

    I agree. Something has to get fixed on our OL for us to be a good team. We've drafted several linemen in the past few years. We just haven't done a very good job of it. :lol: We've picked 9 OLinemen since 2000, Kansas City has picked 8. Our highest round pick on the line during that time was Roos in the 2nd. KC's was Brett Williams in the 4th.

    Roos - 2005
    Stewart - 2005
    Loper - 2005
    Bell - 2004
    Amano - 2004
    Williams - 2003
    Hartwig - 2002
    Haayer - 2001
    Shivers - 2000

    Ahmad Hall has been a bright spot. He's not quite as big as Lorenzo Neal but he can lay the wood no doubt. (and pretty decent hands too)

    Good call. Forgot about him. Probably because he only got like 5 snaps last game.

    I think its time to clean house, again, if we aint gonna play volek, trade him, get rid of Lamont Thompson, trade Chris Brown, give kollins 2 more games at best, and throw the rookies into the game, find a new d coordinator, and keep making gains in the offseason and draft like we did this year, were only as good as our worst player, and right now, im not sure which one that is, because we have so much garbage on the team, we have two small bright spots, our linebacking core, and our future,(Young,White, Roos, Pman, and dont forget about our only pro bowler, KVB)
