That said there are worse LB's than him out there in coverage. His ability aginst the run was great two years ago. He wasn't as good this season and had a lot more missed tackles which ultimatley led to the Chiefs letting him go. He is a solid player all around as long as you pay for what you are getting which is a solid linebacker in most facets but not a standout in any. I would like to see him play in front of a good D Line though because playing with KC makes it difficult to evaluate LB's.

Kawika Mitchell gets a bum wrap, he may not be the best fit for the cover 2 but he is pretty athletic for a man his size. We've seen him turn and run with Randy Moss about 30 yards down field before, that's pretty impressive. The last 2 years (his first 2 years as the starter) he racked up 105 and 104 tackles, and that's without any kind of decent defensive tackle play in front of him. I really feel if he had good tackles in front of him he'd have around 130 tackles a year.

Wow..Mitchell went to the Giants on a one year deal for only 1 million. Not a bad pickup for them at almost no cost.

I'm not a big fan of the Giants, but I did like Kawika Mitchell on our team, I hope he does awesome with the Giants.

I think the real reason that Kawika is gone is because he was too dense to call the defense.....both Herm and Gun want the MLB to make the calls, especially with the rookies we will have starting both safety spots next year.

The guy was a tackling machine.....but he just lacked that something that makes a great MLB.....

Hey man, welcome to the boards. I think if you stick around for a while you'll see that this place is pretty fun.

I agree with your last sentence. He did lack that something that makes great MLBs, he lacked quality defensive tackles up front. I guarantee if the Chiefs had drafted John Henderson instead of Ryan Sims Kawika would have averaged 130 tackles a year.
