Things That Won’t End Pretty in Camp

Herm says HI

Alphonso Boone DE: The Chiefs are really trying to fit a square peg in a round hole with this one. Boone does not look like a DE or a hybrid DE/DT. He does not play like a DE. I don’t think he has even played the position. Once two a days start and upper 90 degree heat is pouring down in River Falls Boone will struggle to keep containment on his side of the field and running backs will simply run away from him. But it’s not his fault he is after all a DT. By the time the season starts Boone will be back at DT and the Chiefs won’t be eager to bring this experimentation up again.

Adrian Jones RG: This one really slid through cracks. He was announced the starter and no one seemed to notice. What has he ever accomplished? He was cut by the Jets and they don’t have a great line. The Chiefs knew they were going with Rudy Niswanger at center and he has zero experience. With all their money they have under the cap they should have signed a solid upper level free agent guard. Instead they signed Herm’s boy that he drafted when he was in NY. Jones has never displayed starter potential and if they don’t find his replacement in camp. It will be the weak link of the offense dragging it down.

Conner Barth K: This one has déjà vu written all over it. The Chiefs going into camp with a rookie kicker just assuming he will make field goals and every thing will work out. Rookie kickers struggle unless their name is Mason Crosby or they are really a Australian rules football player. Barth put up nice numbers in college but so did Justin Medlock. Herm likes field goals, he likes to kick field goals, he like to watch them go thru the uprights. He like everything about them. The Chiefs historically like to kick field goals dating back to the Marty Ball days. If we would have signed Jason Elam this would be a non issue.

    Gun had some interesting comments about Boone playing end on his Redzone interview. I would assume the linebacker normally has outside containment not the end so I have to disagree that Boone will be a liability against the run. I think we will be stronger against the run with him there. The question will be if he will provide a sufficient pass rush.
