Right vs Left Tackle Distinction a Football Dinosaur in Today's NFL

The Kansas City Chiefs recently moved former first-round pick Eric Fisher from left tackle to right tackle. The move is considered a demotion since the fabled “LT” spot protects the blind side of a right-handed throwing quarterback, like Alex Smith. Blind side protection is considered more valuable since a QB often has his back to the defender. But in today’s game the term...

Chiefs’ HC Reid Says Eric Fisher can play at a ‘Pro Bowl-caliber level’ at right tackle

The Kansas City Chiefs selected offensive tackle Eric Fisher with the first overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. It was general manager John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid’s first draft with the Chiefs, so expectations were high.

Kansas City Chiefs’ draft needs

Coming off of a fairly disappointing year, the Kansas City Chiefs look to the draft to fill some of the holes in their lineup. John Dorsey has some ground to make up from the past two NFL drafts. In 2013, the Chiefs selected left tackle Eric Fisher. Fisher has not lived up to his expectation at all and is part of the reason the offensive line is horrendous. Dee Ford was Dorsey...

Where would Eric Fisher go in the 2014 NFL Draft?

ESPN’s Kansas City Chiefs reporter, Adam Teicher, looked back at the 2013 NFL Draft when the Chiefs had the number one overall pick and compared the Chiefs’ situation to what the Houston Texans are dealing with this year.
