Why it might be wise to give Dontari Poe a break

For a player his size, the Kansas City Chiefs sure do play Dontari Poe a lot.

But in doing so, K.C. could be relying on Poe's monster athleticism a little too much. Consider that Poe has been a staple of that defense from...

WATCH: Dontari Poe shows Michael Vick some of his incredible athleticism

Dontari Poe is a freak of nature. At 6’3, 346 pounds, running a dashing 4.98 40 yard dash is simply unfair.

However on Sunday, we were. On a broken down...
