Glenn Dorsey is a better 3-4 DE than McDonald

Gonna have to agree on this one. Tomsula will get him back to his LSU form.

He is in his LSU form. The problem is, he's now going up against NFL players, rather than lawyers and engineers.

I don't know about that. It goes both ways. The Chiefs have a ton of cap room, yet they can't shell out a little bit more to keep Dorsey with his upside potential?

Look, there is no way in Hell Dorsey is better than McDonald, which is what the thread was about; but it can be argued Dorsey is better than RJF.
IMO, RJF is a little better. I could be wrong, we'll have to wait and see.

Hey man, I think RayMac is wayyy better and don't agree with the assertion of the thread, but I'm not at all sold on RJF for the kind of money that's rumored. You are right though, it will be a wait and see type of thing. I'm excited about the potential though.

LOL....dude we're talking about the SEC, not the Ivy League.


He is going up against NFL players, rather than insurance and time-share salesmen. :P

Empirically, Glenn Dorsey has had a better career than Ray McDonald since Dorsey came into the league in 2008. This is measured in +EPA per game. Throwing out Dorsey's shortened, awful 2012 season, Dorsey is far better.

with thaat being the case. What, exactly, is the plan?




This is absurd. Ray McDonald is actually one of the better ranked 3-4 DE's in the NFL. Dorsey is up there in terms of stopping the run but he basically finishes dead last among 3-4 DE's when it comes to generating pass-rush. As KC discovered, he's far more effective playing inside.

I spent a couple of hours at Chiefs Planet tonight on the Dorsey thread. Majority of Chief fans felt he would have been much better as a DT in a 4-3. They were discussing the possibility that the 49ers would move him to NT in the base and DT in the nickel and dime sets where he would be much more effective than the way Crennell tried to use him the last three years.

Everybody over there seemed to like him. They just felt he was misused in KC.
Dorsey will make a bigger impact on this defense than Mac will this upcoming season.
he has to prove that he's better than R mac.


Dorsey is piss poor on rushing the passer (mcdonald excels in that when healhty/fresh)

Thanks for taking the time to see what Chief fans, who watched Dorsey for 4 years think about him.

I really like him one-gaping at DT on passing downs. I think we will get more pass rush up the middle with him on passing downs.

This, Ray Mac is awesome and goes unnoticed on this star studded D. I think Dorsey is being brought in to play NT, maybe the new RJF but I have a suspicion he's our new Soap

Pretty sure Ian Williams is going to play NT, Dorsey is going to be Justin Smith on the other side, opening up the lane for Brooks. Or the other way around... Williams on the outside, Dorsey in the middle.

We don't rely on our DL to get sacks. We use them to open up holes and protect our LBs.

I like this signing, Cheaper, younger than issac, also think he will play nose he was always over the center in college i think he will fill at home. Him and Ian should rotate at nose, also maybe a draft pick he also can rotate in behind ray and justin... Issac sucks i hated him anyone would have been a upgrade.
I think he will compete at both DE and NT. He was brought in to add depth and possibly start at NT if he can beat out Ian Williams. Also, we need a NT that can occupy two blockers, Soap wasn't doing that, if we can get that out of Williams or Dorsey we are golden!

This is such an exciting b signing. We have a grear coaching staff that will bring out the best in him. He was drafted 3rd overall. He never lived up to where he picked but he's by no means awful. People expect splash plays out of a 3rd overall pick. I think we're getting a run down DE. He won't be expected to rush the passer but lord I'm hoping a change of scenery, new coach, and reduced pressure opens him up.
