  • Gaither, when healthy, is head and shoulders above Albert at LT. It's fact. If I have two linemen like Gaither and Albert I'd get them both on the field at the same time to make the strongest possible line, so Albert, logically, would be the one to move over.

      yes, we added weapons to Cassel's arsenal, but did we protect him? i'll be the 1st to admit that i thought the OLine overachieved last year. i'm hoping they can do it again because on paper the depth is pathetic.
      The OL didn't overachieve last year. It was a talented group that just progressed. It's a much more talented group this year and hopefully they continue to make progress towards fulfilling their potential as a unit. The only weak spot on the OL is backup G. The rest is looking pretty awesome. Looked like crap in the pre-season with mixed-in street players and guys playing out of position, but this is a really nice group that has a couple years together.

        not according to the Kansas City Chiefs and their website.

        Hudson is listed as the #1 BU for LG, C and RG. actually, after further looking, there isn't an offensive lineman named Lewis on the 53 man roster. Butch Lewis made the practice squad, but he can't help until the week after someone is injured.

        overachieve was a poor choice of words on my part. what i meant is exceeded expectations. most Chiefs fans didn't go into the 2010 season with the idea that the Chiefs would be able to impose their running game on almost every team we played. plus, make as many strides in pass protection as they did (i attribute most of that to the effective running game). it feels like deja vu cause i'm hoping the OLine exceeds my expectations. maybe not from starter or an execution standpoint, but from a depth perspective. our 5 starters have to stay healthy all year. doing that would exceed my expectations. i know how the NFL is and getting your line to play every snap of every game is impossible.

          OK Lewis, on the PS, is the one I refered to. He is the de facto, if unofficial, backup. If an injury occured in a game situation, we would make do with Hudson, but Lewis is available for the next week. Of course, like others, I expect a FA signing.

          As to the 2010 season, casual fans were thinking the OL stunk, but forums like this one knew better. If you go back to August 2010, we had discussions on why the OL was not a big issue. This year we replaced Waters, and will replace Weigmann. Those are the last holdovers from the glory days of the last decade.

          • I'm supremely confident in Asamoah, but I have my doubts about Hudson, but that is only because he's a rookie. He has the ability to be a great center someday though.

              now Lewis has been released to free up a roster spot for a practice squad TE. the season is quickly approaching and the time for picking up players off the scrap heap is quickly dwindling. i'm just saying the depth on this line is terrible and unless everyone stays healthy all year, we will see consequences.

              • So Peyton could potentially be out when we play them week 5.. that sucks for Peyton because he's one hell of a QB but I'd be lying if I said I was disappointed he wasn't going to play.

                We played them tough last year with a healthy Peyton so maybe we can steal that one.

                              It was probably Chiefs fans everywhere collectively chanting the word Luck over and over.

                                Or they could just hire Charlie Weis to replace Haley and get Cassel back on track. :)
