    Two Chief rookies out of 27 total players selected. Wow, maybe Tyson Jackson was scrutinized under a different microscope than us fans used. Succop was a shoo in.
    Congrats Guys.

    I was surprised about Jackson as well. Thats good though.

    Congrats guys indeed!!

    Actually, Jackson was the second leading tackler among Rookie Defensive Linemen. (According to NFL.com, anyway. They list him with 38.)

    thats funny because last year dorsey had led all rookie DT’s in tackles yet didn’t sniff the all-rookie team..

    To be a good team next year we to have some offensive linemen on this team…

    I’m guessin last year was really thin at D-End.

    Chan Gailey is being looked at for the Head Coaching jobs of the Bills. Any of you guy shave any thoughts?

    Good luck to him, then. Chan’s a good guy, and a good coach. Just because he didn’t fit here anymore…no reason not to wish him well in his future endeavors.

    Check this out…name the only Head Coach in Dallas Cowboys history to take his team to the playoffs every year? Yup…Chan Gailey. And, he actually has a winning record as a Head Coach in the NFL (18-16).

    I hope he has success in Buffalo. Unless they’re playing the Chiefs, of course.

    Ya Grats to our two and Chan.

    Go Chiefs 2010!

    Sorry but no way do I consider Jackson any kind of a rookie all star. Do not care what they say. He did not preform at that level, actually, he did not preform until half way thru the season at any level. Enough said from me.

    Just heard DC Nolan left Denver. So the broncos may take a step backwards in 2010. Hope so.

    Jackson had more tackles than Everette Brown and B.J. Raji…two names you hear a lot more than his.

    I’m waiting to see what TJ can do in year two. I still feel like Haley kinda’ called Jackson out a little on his work ethic, at his year ending press conference. Hopefully, this kid can get it together next year and be a solid player for this team. Let’s face it…at this point, we can’t afford to “miss” on too many draft picks. Especially our high ones. Good luck, Romeo. I hope you can live up to the hype.

    Jackson had a far superior rookie season to Dorsey. Hopefully he can make the same strides in year 2 that Dorsey made.

    “Jackson had a far superior rookie season to Dorsey. Hopefully he can make the same strides in year 2 that Dorsey made.”

    No, he really didn’t. I’m not sure what the basis for your comment is…but Dorsey had more tackles in his first year than Jackson did. By quite a bit.


  • January 19, 2010  - arrowhead1978 says:

    Mark, Dorsey had more tackles at 47 or something like that than Jackson did and he was playing DT not DE. Dorsey learned DE this year and still had more tackles in his second year then Jackson did..

    Dorsey in his third year should become the Defensive lineman that everyone expected when he got here.


  • January 19, 2010  - arrowhead1978 says:

    oh and by the way I was wrong earlier, Dorsey did make the All-Rookie team last year, I didn’t remember hearing about it though…


  • January 19, 2010  - Mark says:

    1978, Tackle stats are largely irrelevant. It’s how they played. Dorsey was frequently pushed 5 yards back, and handled easily as a rookie 1 on 1. Jackson is far stouter, holds his ground better than Dorsey did as a rookie.
