The (un)Official Ron Edwards Appreciation Post

Last year, all the talk about the Chiefs' D Line was far from positive. Dorsey and Jackson were being prematurely labeled as busts. The NT position looked like a sieve. Things weren't pretty. But most fans understood we were rebuilding, and the young DE's needed a season or two to adjust to the game at the NFL level - so even though there was some debate, there were many defending our DE's. But not the forgotten NT position. "We must draft NT no matter what!" we cried. "Ron Edwards is a backup at best" others chimed in. Then draft day hit, and NT's were to be found. Haley and Pioli had stated we were fine with what we had in-house. And a collective "Whoah, what?!? Seriously? What have these guys been drinking?" arose from the fanbase. I was one of those. So I'd like to formally apologize to Big Ron Edwards. I didn't believe. He works very hard at the defensive position least likely to post big lists of pretty stats. And this year he's been a monster, disrupting both the run and the pass. Forcing opposing offensive lines to account for him with second blockers, freeing up DJ and Jovan to do their thing. Big Ron, you've been a pleasant surprise and I was very wrong about you and your role on the team.
