    I know he was only a 4th rd pick & the others were 1st & 2nd rd picks. But Anthony has a Ring.

    I am always hearing that players are judged by championships.

    Besides our defense hasnt been the same since he left.

    So he is not better.
    He was however on a better overall team, with a real HC making the right decisions, especially at key moments.

    Hitchens has been garbage in Kansas City. Don't know what they are doing differently with him schematically there, but he has been one of the worst linebackers in the NFL.

    LVE and Jaylon shouldn't have been starting for most of last season and Joe Thomas and Malcolm Smith often looked like more effective players.

    Hitch was a better downhill player than in coverage, so I think Richard's deep zone scheme would have really messed with him. That being said, Hitch vs LVE vs Jaylon is surprisingly a basement bowl matchup. God, I hope those guys can turn it around.

    Also, I think if you look at Hitchen's contract, it's worse than Smith's. Granted, KC will be out from under that contract sooner than we will with Smith.

    The 3rd string OG also has a ring - does that make him better than Zach Martin?

    QB's are often judged by championships - at least in part. Not so much linebackers.

    Hitchens was a great value draft pick. If you pick guys like him in round 4, your going to have good team. But, you can't give everyone a second contract.

    LVE at his best is on another level that very few Linebackers could even dream of.

    I'm just worried that he may have a short career.

    Jaylon... This is a make or break year for him.

    I don't know if his focus is being the best linebacker he can be anymore.

    I think his goal was to come back from that injury and play at a high level.. Once he achieved that we saw a big regression in his play and more talk about being a business man and entrepreneur.

    No. Good grief! Not only no, but hell no. The fact he has a ring has nothing to do with it. ZERO.

    Well, he does seem to be healthier than any of the 3 Cowboys' LB. Anyone that thinks Smith is back to ND form hasn't been watching close enough and a neck issue with a LB is a real concern. We don't know just how healthy Vander Esch is with this injury, which is not a new one but one there is some history with and that's a real red flag.

    100% healthy and I'd take this trio over any in the league, including SEA with the best MLB. But health is now the #1 concern with all 3. The odds of all 3 playing at 100% in all games are not good.

    Have you ever been on a Kansas City Chiefs site, I have and their fans can't stand Anthony Hitchens or his contract.

    Well Jaylon has realistically played about 10-12 good games in his career so far and 0 came last year, so yes I’d take hitchens over him. A healthy LVE isn’t even close, hopefully LVE can actually get and stay healthy though

    Yes, he won a Super Bowl!

    That means Hitchens is better than those two, Cam Erving is better than Fleming, and Blake Bell is an elite blocking TE.

    Am I doing this right? Someone ask XWalker

    How is this a make or break year for Jaylon? Or do you mean as far as his career goes? Because he's going to be here for a few more years.

    I don't know if this thread is some cheap argument for Tony Romo or if he's really asking this question......
