I'm very comfortable with him being our LT. I love Albert, but I think Fisher will be a top 5 LT in the near future.
What do you think they are going to do with Albert now that the fins blew their wad moving up to get a rush OLB? Keep him and move Fisher to RT or let Albert go for less than their original asking price?

Pretty funny that the trade fell through!

Fisher will play RT and Albert LT, if Albert is not traded away. The kc oline will be solid on both ends.

WOW. You're happy about repeating the Matt Cassel experiment.

We have the Dolphins right where we want them. They don't have a starting LT and there is no real LT talent left.

I think Albert will be traded for their 2nd and a future pick.

As of right now, they have no leverage at all. Worst comes to worst, we keep our good OT to pair with a very good LT from the draft.

It's a win-win for us.

Talks resuming.

Dave Skretta ‏@APdaveskretta 4m

#Chiefs GM John Dorsey says he talked to #Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland tonight, and agreed to resume Branden Albert talks tomorrow.

it most certainly does not look better. 32 teams will have all night to think about what they messed up, who is still available, etc. The team they are going to call to fix whatever issue they have is the holder of the early picks tomorrow - SF and JAX.

What would be hilarious is if KC remembers that Alex Smith isn't a QBotF, and need to trade up to get Geno. Obviously won't happen, but it's gonna suck for KC waiting until Saturday before they can pick again, watching Geno, Barkley, Nassib, Dysert, and Wilson all go tomorrow.

Maybe they get the deal done and get back in @ 22, but what ever QB they take at that point will be sloppy seconds, passed over by everyone else for one reason or another.

If I was a Chief fan, I would be less excited about the Alex Smith era than I was as a Bronco fan entering the Kyle Orton era.

My daughter just graduated from CMU. I've seen Fisher play multiple times. KC, you did good. This guy is a BEAST! Meaner than hell, too. He will be, by far, the best LT in the AFC West, probably the AFC and, over time, just might be the best in the NFL.

I will watch Charles run wild behind this guy.....except for 2 times a year...

I thought the fins used up their 2nd round pick to get high to get the rush OLB. So your saying they have one 2nd round pick left to pull the trigger on Albert? If I were them I would hold out and see if kFc would get desperate and take a 3rd or 4th...

They had 42 and 54. Traded 42 to Oakland.

The Dolphins can try to hold out, but they are the one's in trouble. If we don't get a 2nd, we can just say "well Jeff Ireland, good luck with no LT in your contract next year."

Actually, the Dolphins hold all the bargaining chips. Johnathan Martin played LT pretty well in relief of Long last season, and if they wanted to they could settle for a RT and still have a very stout line. They could avoid drafting a RT and trade for Albert and keep Martin at RT, but I don't think Ireland wants to trade a 2nd for Albert. My guess is the Cheifs settle for a third, or Albert is still a Cheif come Monday.

except, they can't. They have Alex Smith instead. At least Alex Smith will be protected when he throws for his 179 yards a game (career average).

....eh, basically they got Willie Roaf back instead of blowing it on a QB who'll be out of football in three years. I suppose you can enjoy Bob's disappointment, but know it's only because he's too stupid about football to realize his team's personnel department knows what they're doing.

The Chiefs will be much better this year. Bob being sad because he doesn't know doesn't change that for me...

I wonder if they don't try to move back to replace some picks lost in the trade up then offer you guys an even later 2nd or 3rd round pick.

Taking a RT #1 overall is completely stupid.

Geno Smith is going to make tons of GMs eat ****.

The fact that raw POS Manuel was taken over him is hilarious.

Has nothing to do with football and everything to do with "OMG LOOK HOW HUGE MANUEL IS."

love the Manuel pick! The Bills don't care what you think Bob, they see a QB who they think has a lot of upside. Fact is, Geno is no closer to being ready to start in the NFL than Manuel is. If you are gonna gamble, gamble on a big, mobil and strong armed guy rather than a cry baby.

Gotta love chiefs fans. Bash on the broncos for losing in the playoffs, yet somehow not winning one playoff game in almost 2 decades gets a pass
