    This guy was like the Chiefs best tackler last year and he's huge at 6-5 250lbs.

    He wears #50, but I don't remember seeing him in the game.

    Did he even suit up for the game?

    Also, I was curious about just where he'll be used in the 3-4. I think he's a great pickup for us, but where and when will he play?


    Anyone?

    Yeah, I remember reading that he was acquired because we lost Kalen Thornton.

    However, I thought Kalen and Ware were on the right/strong side and Singleton and Burnett were the left/weak side?


    Confusing..... :confused:



    I MUST KNOW!!!

    He is on the strongside(typically left) behind Singleton. Burnett was moved to the weakside behind Ware but had to have his knee scope. So Ogbogu is the weakside backup for now.

    Man, I'm so sick of Singleton never showing up in games.

    I swear he's like the invisible man on our defense.

    I hope Fujita takes his place sooner than later.

    great analogy.....

    Lets just move on and get Fujita on the field. Get Burnett back and deal with it.

    You and I clash from time to time. I think it's in fun, though I know you don't always see it that way.

    On Fujita starting soon I completely agree but it has to be when he is up to speed. As soon as he is get him in.

    I think this kid will make a huge difference for this team.

    I want to see Fujita on the field ASAP as well. But I think it's unrealistic for us to expect him to learn a totally new way of playing in just a couple of weeks.

    I think he'll slowly be worked into our defense. I can really see him begin to push for playing time by week five against Philly. I think he'll be starting soon after.

    I too want what is best for team. Fujita could be ready Monday night. Get him on the field more.

    I agree. Al looks very uncomfortable at that position. He's a good player and pro, but he's just not the right type to play there.

    Get him on the field IF he is ready.

    If he's not ready get him ready.

    Let's keep one thing in mind here......

    Fujita was a good, solid player at KC.....their only good LB last year. But it's possible that he may not be that much better than Singleton as an OLB in the 3-4.

    I think he will be. But the unfortunate thing about this trade is that we get no time to see how good/bad Fujita will fit.......we have to give him a "live" rehearsal....the bullets will be real.

    Fujita at 6-5 250 is a pure 3-4 LB

    Dude makes tackles, plays and sacks. I watched Al LARGE get manhandled bad at point of attack. He's a Tampa 4-3 guy no matter how we cut it that really has done nothing but be average here - time to move on....

    He has the look of a "pure" 3-4 LB....but he's never played it before.

    How can we know how "good" he'll be?
