Kyle Turley is No Willie Roaf

But I think he will fit in quite nicely at left-tackle, if he does indeed end up at that position.    Jason Whitlock is warming up to the idea of a replacement for Willie Roaf:

Kansas City?s offense can function with Turley in Roaf?s spot. Will there be a drop-off in production at the position? No question. Roaf is a Hall of Famer who made a habit of swallowing Dwight Freeney. Roaf was the rare left tackle who was physical and big enough to excel as a right tackle, too.
I understand the disappointment in losing the offensive anchor in Roaf. But come on, are we really that worried about Kyle Turley as a replacement? I'm not.
