A sad day for Chiefs fans.I wonder if we will target Grubbs or Blalock in RD 1 now

The Dynasty 04-15-2007 06:39 PM

Chiefs probably could wait and draft Manuel Rameriz he's a strong and big boy.

draftguru151 04-15-2007 06:39 PM

One of the best. Getting Grubbs of Blalock looks slim unless the trade up or down.

bored of education 04-15-2007 06:40 PM

I figured this. Hall of Famer for sure. Sad sad day.

Trade down!!!!!!

Thomas7399 04-15-2007 06:41 PM

Ouch.....changes the draft focus a little

Why not Kalil or Staley, much better overall OL

princefielder28 04-15-2007 06:43 PM

Great lineman; KC continues to have to fill in pieces of an old team

T-RICH49 04-15-2007 06:43 PM

well Welbourn is now projected to be our starting OG and I really have no confidence in him at all

Flyboy 04-15-2007 06:45 PM

Well, at least he did it before the draft.

49erfaithful 04-15-2007 06:46 PM

he was one of the best linemen. Will be hard for anybody to fill his shoes

Great point he had class unlike Roaf who left high and dry

Splat 04-15-2007 07:17 PM

One of the best guards to ever play the game and a steal as a 3rd round pick first ballot hall of famer for sure he will be missed.

diabsoule 04-15-2007 07:23 PM

Excellent player who had tremendous class. I wish him the best in his career outside of football. He will definitely be a Hall of Famer.

RaVeNFaNaCtIc 04-15-2007 07:28 PM

Great guard and a definate HOF. Man the chiefs are really on the decline.

art vandelay 04-15-2007 07:34 PM

Another tough loss for LJ. He didn't know how good he had it in '05.

bigbluedefense 04-15-2007 07:35 PM

KC has an old team with lots of holes...and Herm the perm as HC....ouch. He'll keep you competitive, but its gonna be some dark days in the near future.

TheChampIsHere 04-15-2007 07:35 PM

Yeah I think we all expected this, great player should be first ballot HOF. OG is still the least of their worries though.

WMD 04-15-2007 07:40 PM

We'll see him in the Hall of Fame in a few years.

Splat 04-15-2007 07:42 PM

This quote says it all.

"The love for the game never decreased but, as the years passed, the physical requirements of the game became harder to fulfill each and every day," Shields wrote on the site. "If it was up to me I would play football forever but, as we all know, that is unrealistic."

Will might be the nicest guy in all of football.Man it will be weird not to see #68 in a Chiefs uniform

bad news for KC

great news for oakland

bigbluedefense 04-15-2007 08:00 PM

KC's offense is gonna be really bad next year....

They need to have a good offensive draft. They need a WR, LT, C, OG...and thats just on offense.

They need DTs and safeties too. Could be a rough year for KC fans.

Geo 04-15-2007 08:23 PM

They did sign Damion McIntosh this off-season, who played LT for the Dolphins last season and could very well play LT for the Chiefs.

Yeah, but he's a JAG. They need a premiere guy.

I think they should trade back, and get Ryan Kalil and Levi Brown. That would be a nice start.

Then get Ramirez in round 3.

Use their 2nd on a WR.

The defense will have to make do with what they got for now. Get Marvin White and Dameion Hughes on day 2. Hope your DTs can hold up for a year.

sad to see good luck to Willie in the future.
