I'm going to offer a reason for why the Chiefs are not as good as they should be, in spite of the talent we have.
Our two biggest problem areas are the lines on each side of the ball. consider this fact, a large number of our guys are playing out of position.
Glen Dorsey drafted as a RG. We had a Pro Bowl RG so we stuck him at RT
Rudy Niswanger is a G playing C
Andy Alleman is a C/RG playing LG
Wade Smith plays every position along the line
Ike Ndukwe is a LG playing LT
you can say C to G is nothing but C is responsible for line calls so he needs to be able to read a defense like a QB
Thats 5 of 8 OL guys spending at least some time out position. that is 3 or 5 starters
now on the Defensive side
Glen Dorsey was drafted as a DT and we have him at DE
Alex Magee was drafted as a DT and is playing DE
Tamba Hali is a DE playing OLB who is awkwardly sized for both. he is probably best as a 4-3 DE
Andy Studebaker is a DE playing OLB
Peirre Walters in a DE playing OLB
Demorrio Williams is an OLB playing ILB
If we just played guys at their natureal positions, we would probably get more out of them. This is my suspicion why there is underperformance along the lines, especially from Dorsey and ALbert.
