Why we're not so good


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.
