    As a Chief’s fan there’s no choice but to live with this conservative choice which is what it is. For an OL, I’m thrilled with the human and physical qualities Fisher has demonstrated.

    For anyone looking at the bigger picture the irony here is; no one probably cares who the Chiefs took at #1 if they still had their 2nd round pick. At the end of the season, it’s the complete body of work that they’ll be graded on, not how or the order in which the players they field were assembled.

    What really sticks in this fans craw more so than the selection of the best OL, had they been as committed to driving the same hard bargain with the 49er’s as they attempted with the Dolphins they’d still have their #2 to utilize on another much needed impact LB or DL. Serves them right for grossly overpaying for their QB and overplaying their hand for the malcontent Brandon if their stuck with him for another season. At the end of the day though, having both tackles is probably the only hope for giving Dilfer/Smith a decent chance of not making our GM look bad. The tragedy here is Cassel has more of a track record with NE and KC than this QB (that cost us our #2) of prospering when given time. The Vikings got Cassel for nothing, hmm……

    Not sure you know what you are talking about.

    Cassel better than Smith, right unless you want an accurate passer with some strength in his are.

    Fisher can play both tackles, keep Albert or send him down the road. Chiefs are not going to pay Albert past this year, if he can play the full year anyway. Guess we could let him walk and get nothing….hmmm.

    Dilfer…..????? really????

    Lastly, we need to give Reid, remember him the HC, the players he wants to keep his job.

    Sometimes you get what you pay for.

    I give that responce A+ el cid. Now to those Geno Smith fans, it got to be a bad dream,that so many GMs could be so wrong. Off W/Their Heads

    Miami still needs a left tackle, right? No one is considering that we could still trade Albert to Miami for their second round pick. All day today to make it happen. Alternately, the trade could happen after the draft for future draft picks.

    Interesting comment of the night from the ESPN commentators was from Jon Grudin, who observed that last year, the Chiefs got very weak RT play from Eric Winston, which meant their QB was constantly under siege. And that the best thing the Chiefs might do is to find a way to keep Albert, so they have two strong tackles, and overall, a very good offensive line.

    I love the Dilfer comparison from the haters! He does have a ring you know.

    Gruden actually called our RT situation “a disaster.” I couldn’t agree more.

    Trauman wants to be unhappy… let him.
