Future D-Line


Courtesy of “Sunny” Bob Gretz. From his blog:

“The few fans who were in Ramer Field at UW-River Falls on Monday watching the Chiefs go through their practice in pads got to see the future of the Chiefs defensive line.

For several plays during the workout the No. 1 defensive line looked like this, from left to right: Turk McBride, Tank Tyler, Glenn Dorsey and Tamba Hali.  That foursome had probably a half-dozen snaps, as the Chiefs were easing Dorsey back into full practice work coming off his knee injury.

But it’s a good bet that in coming practices and weeks that group will spend more and more time together.  It would be a fairly safe bet to pencil them in as the front four for the season opener in New England.”

I would suspect that this is a welcome development across AA-land. Now, Gun seems to really like Brian Johnston a lot as a pass rusher. How would you feel about pulling Tank Tyler out on some passing downs, sliding Glenn Dorsey and Tamba Hali over, and going with a pass rush line of Turk McBride, Dorsey, Tamba and Johnston?
