    I head that too. In most of the post draft grades the Bears where celebrated with the Gilbert selecton and the Magee selection was frowned upon. I guess you never know how the draft truely shakes out.

    Tyson Jackson is being very underrated as a 4-3 DE. He can do it all...could be a Mario Williams-type of talent for the Chiefs on the strong side in Pendergast's scheme.

    Also, a lot of the guys already on the roster are being overlooked (Barry Richardson). And they've still got a lot of off-season to work with.

    Pioli is more of a free agency guy. He does a great job maneuvering and getting 3-4 guys out of each draft, but his real skill is getting quality free agents on the cheap.
    I'm curious why you think Tyson Jackson could be a Mario Williams type DE in the 4-3 when he hasn't shown that he can be a consistent pass rusher period? I'm not saying you're wrong, but what exactly are you seeing that I'm not? He doesn't seem to be a good pass rusher at all. He could be an excellent run stuffer, he could pressure the QB, he can take on blockers for our LBs to make plays, but I really doubt he will ever be anything near Mario Williams.

    Go back to sacks allowed per pass attempt last year. Our o-line, while not as good as it was in the past, was serviceable. They've upgraded with Goff. Albert and Niswanger now in the second year of starting. And Brian Waters will be just fine. He's a pro.

    I would have preferred an OT with that first pick to replace McIntosh, but you guys are certainly cracking me up. :) The sky is not falling. Pioli and Haley obviously decided that rebuilding our AWFUL defensive line, which is not remotely suited to play the 3-4 (not even suited to play the 4-3 if you look at last year's stats), was much more important than supplementing our average offensive line.

    Pioli can talk about winning this year, but he's targeting 2010 and 2011, not 2009. These are all pieces for the larger puzzle.

    You can obviously tell that Pioli wanted to set a BASE for the Chiefs. Build a core. Build from the inside out...and give them some time. We have come accustomed to seeing teams turn everything around in a year but we can't EXPECT that. I do expect to win more, but give him 1-2 more years here and lets see what this team starts to turn into.

    Who is going to protect Matt Cassel, and who is going to get to the other team's quarterback?

    I'm ok with what happened. New regime, new philosophy. It could be the Chiefs wanted Jackson, and wanted to move down but nothing materialized. Better to get the guy they wanted then to get one they didn't.

    I understand 100% but we knew going in this was going to take time we just need to have some patience way to many holes for one off season.
