Loading up on pass rushers is what has won teams like the Giants, Steelers, Ravens and Seahawks super bowls in recent years. It's absolutely critical to success nowadays.

We had a nice pass rush last year until injuries occured. Love that they aren't satisfied and added guys like Ford and Walker to make it even better.
Your pass rush was overrated.

Playing backup 1st time QBs really helped it out. When you got to better teams the pass rush disappeared, not because of injuries but because of better competition.

And how in the **** did De'Anthony Thomas fall to the 4th round? Is this guy really different than Tavon Austin?

Dude scored 46 TD's in 3 years, ran a 4.3 at his pro day, has just as much playmaking ability and explosiveness as anybody in this draft and is the best ST's player in the draft averaging 17 yards per return.

I was shocked that he lasted that long after hearing about that.

I followed DeAnthony Thomas's career pretty closely at Oregon. He was great in college, but in the NFL where everyone is fast Thomas = Trindon Holliday 2.0. He will be a disappointment just like LaMichael James. Sorry, but he was way overdrafted in the 4th round. As effective as Oregon's offense is in the Pac-12, for some reason all of the Duck players who really make an impact in the NFL seem to be on the defensive side of the ball (see: Jairus Byrd, Haloti Ngata, etc.). Oh, and don't forget about T.J. Ward.

Are you talking about the same LaGarrette Blount who ran for 6 yards against the Broncos, and the same Jonathan Stewart who has murdered thousands of fantasy teams all across America?

All of those guys are completely different than Thomas. Completely.

Heck, Thomas wasn't even the premier offensive player at Oregon.

I just don't see him being that big of an impact in the NFL.

That's fine to think that, but he's in the perfect place to succeed with Andy Reid and Dave Toub. He can't succeed here then he won't succeed anywhere.

Because De'Anthony Thomas is the same as LaMichael James.

Thomas is easily a better playmaker. Keep reaching though.

No, because Thomas has stone hands and his speed is nothing special at the NFL level. The Chefs let Dexter McCluster walk so that they could burn a 4th round pick on essentially the same player?* That pick could've been used on receiver help or someone to block for the immortal Alex Smith. Way to draft for need there, Chefs.


(*I'm not kidding, this guy = McCluster. Even their combine profiles are almost identical.

DAT is DMC? Now I've heard it all.

DAT ran a 4.38 at his pro day. DMC runs a 4.58. Yeah they sure are the same.

Also, because he is a system back. The Kelly/Helfrich offense puts these guys in space with the best possible chance to succeed. Every play with the read option they are given the opportunity to have yards of green before seeing a defensive player. Out of all the Oregon backs who have been tremendous in their system, how many are succeeding at the NFL level?

DAT ran 4.50 at the combine. McCluster ran a 4.58. Don't make me post the links again. Congrats on the extra 0.08 seconds - I'm sure that will make a huge difference for the Chefs against the Broncos this year.

And the Broncos 1st round pick Bradley Roby ran a 4.39 at the combine. So you tell me how special DAT's speed is at the NFL level.

Rather than burning that 4th rounder on McCluster's replacement, the Chefs should have drafted someone to help block Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware.

Ten offensive linemen went off the board between the time the Chefs reached for DeAnthony Thomas and when they finally got around to drafting an O-lineman in the 6th round. I mean, what was Andy Reid doing during this time, murdering a package of jelly donuts or something?

Succeed and kFc should not be mentioned in the same sentence.

I never realized how similar DAT and Desean Jackson are.

Is that because I've watched each of them play football?
