Haley: Chiefs Are Clearly A Better Team With Dorsey

Last year at this time the big topic of conversation (besides Matt Cassel) was the future of Glenn Dorsey.

You all remember the story. Dorsey was the next "can't miss" 4-3 defensive lineman and suddenly turned into the next "can't fit" lineman in the Chiefs new 3-4 defense.

Haley recognized the questions surrounding Dorsey last year but did nothing to suggest he isn't part of their future plans.

"A lot of those guys had to make a very difficult transition," Haley said. "But I feel positive about a lot of those guys and the development they made.

"Glenn Dorsey is No. 1. There was a lot of speculation about whether he fit, are we trading him? We were clearly a better team when Glenn Dorsey played. He learned a lot of things last year and he's much further along and now understands what our expectation level is with him and we understand him."

I think he's right.

The one game Dorsey missed last year?

Browns unknown RB Jerome Harrison nearly eclipsed the single-game rushing yards record.
