Let me guess....

St John and Dorksco built it up like they were going to completely dog him on the air.

Then, once he called in, they were nice, cordial and asked him how his insurance sales were going......

actually, he just asked about his misses later in his career, and asked some specific question about the colts playoff game, from what I caught.

He talked about the field conditions in the Colts game. Apparently, they weren't able to kick with the net on the sidelines because it was icy and the field was frozen solid, so he wore a tennis shoe on his plant foot for the first time in his career.

Ok, I can understand that, but he was missing XP's on a regular basis the last 4 weeks of that season to the point that XP's were 'in doubt'. Dude was struggling long before that game.

He was asked about the 2 missed EPs in either the SD or Oak game, and he said the field conditions were so terrible there it was like he was kicking from a sandbox

They tarp the fields and blow warm air under them. The frozen turf on that day had no water in it, so it's like walking on concrete, not slippery grass.

Elliot should have made those field goals, however, listening to St. John talk to Marcus Allen last week made it apparent that Schottenheimer and Hackett were the real problem.

I didn't realize that KC was #1 in the league in rushing that year. Allen said that the coaches completely got away from their game plan of running the ball. Said that when you're gaining 5 yards per carry in freezing cold weather, why on earth would you ever start throwing the ball?

He said that was the biggest downfall. Not necessarily Lin Elliot.

This has been confirmed by multiple players on those teams, that Martry changed everything up going into the playoffs. Other players have stated that they even brought in 'new' plays that had never been practiced prior to the playoffs starting.

Somewhat.....but he is (was) a professional getting paid to do ONE thing...and that is kick the ball through the uprights....

If all you have to do is one task - dont you think you would take your profession and job a little more seriously in that you would "test out" your new shoe theory on the frozen turf beforehand? Maybe get out a few hours before gametime and test it out?

The most important game of the season - and this knob job tries something he has never done in his career ever - and even worse, without even practicing the new method.

I have no sympathy for kickers....you should have plenty of practice time to kick the freakin ball through the uprights....you're not running drills, you're not practicing the oklahoma drill.....you're kicking the ball - and you're getting paid very well to do it. If you think about salary versus production (number of opportunities or plays)...kickers are probably the highest paid players in the league..you take a kicker making 200,000 a year...let's say they are involved on average 7 plays a game (excluding kickoffs)...that's 112 plays a season...that's almost $1,800 a play.....with that said, you should be held accountable for your performance.

phew....I feel better now! Sorry...Lin brings the worst out of me.

I think I can forgive him. I mean when you're the kicker and you suck, what do you do? I don't know anyone who would intentionally give up their job. You just hopefully kick through it (kinda like Tynes in preseason), and go on. He just never got over it.

That whole game sucked for us all the way around... Lin was the worst, but we should have never been in that position, especially considering we knew pretty much not to count on him for ANYTHING.

I've been making this same argument for years.

I've speculated that Marty went away from the ground game because he wanted to make sure Marcus was fresh for the fourth qtr.

He wanted to attemt to ensure he had a fresh Marcus to potentially protect a lead.

He went away from the gameplan that was working in order to Martyball the fourth qtr.

It didn't work.

I'm trying to recall - was it this game or the '97 game where Hackett headed out on a job interview the week before the game instead of working on a FREAKING GAME PLAN FOR A FREAKING PLAYOFF GAME!

As much as Elliott should've made those field goals, Hackett is the villain of all villains. That was the worst game plan I've ever seen in a professional sports game.

I'm not making excuses for Elliot, nor am I excusing his suckage.

However, the other kicker would have the knowledge and experience of those particular field conditions that Elliot wouldn't.

In the end, it doesn't matter, cause Marty would have found another way to **** it all up, anyway.

Headline: Chiefs could use a change
Byline: JASON WHITLOCK
Source:
Publication Date: December 13, 1995
Page: D1




On December 11, 1995 the Chiefs lost 13-6 to the Miami Dolphins, putting them at 11-3. They would win their last two regular season games and secure home-field advantage throughout the playoffs before falling 10-7 to the Colts in the in their first playoff game. Jason looks at a team many thought was destined for the Super Bowl and details the weaknesses that would bring about so much heartache a month later.



As I said Tuesday morning, the Chiefs' ignorant decision to throw a fade pass to Webster Slaughter on their final offensive play of the game against Miami was far from the only reason they lost.



Today, let us discuss the three other reasons I have identified after carefully listening to your voice-mail complaints.



1. Time's up for kicker Lin Elliott.



Earlier in the season - after the Chiefs were embarrassed in Cleveland - I suggested the Chiefs should strongly consider replacing Elliott.



Well, now that Elliott has missed three of his last five extra points and two makable field goals in the last two games, I feel very comfortable saying Elliott should not attempt another field goal or PAT this season.



I'm going to say that again. Lin Elliott should not attempt another field goal or PAT this season. (Please clip this and mail it to Arrowhead Stadium in care of Carl Peterson or Marty Schottenheimer.)



Elliott missed a PAT and a 44-yard field goal Monday night. Had he made those two attempts, the Chiefs, instead of throwing a lob pass to Slaughter on fourth down, would have sent Elliott in for a 26-yard field goal to tie the game.



Follow me?



The Chiefs lost by seven points. Had Elliott not blown four points earlier in the game, a fourth-quarter field goal would have tied the game.



It's too late in the season to replace Elliott altogether. He should retain his kickoff duties; he has done a fine job with that.



But it is up to Peterson and his staff to scour the country for someone capable of knocking down PATs at a reasonable percentage. Right now, we'll take anyone with an average above 50 percent.



I'm sure one of the Zendejas brothers would move to Kansas City.



But if the Chiefs are interested in checking out a lower-profile kicker whom I can personally vouch for inside 45 yards, I suggest they investigate Kenny Stucker (Ball State, '92). The kid holds nearly all of the Ball State kicking records and has had quite an arena football career.



2. Time's running out on quarterback Steve Bono.



It seems like it was only a few weeks ago that Bono was the toast of the town, the man making everyone forget Joe Montana.



Right now, at this very instant, besides being the finickiest eater this side of Morris the cat, Bono is one of the six worst regular starting quarterbacks in the NFL.



He's right up there with Seattle's Rick Mirer, Carolina's Kerry Collins, Tampa Bay's Trent Dilfer, Washington's Heath Shuler and the New York Giants' Dave Brown.



There's no mystery to what's wrong with the Chiefs' offense. Bono has been dreadful the last month and a half.



It's not play calling. It's not Schottenheimer being conservative.



The problem is Bono doesn't throw accurately, especially in the first three quarters of games. Today I'm going to tally his seasonlong fourth-quarter statistics and compare them to his production during the first three quarters. (I'll tell you about it in Thursday's paper.)



I think the man needs to see a hypnotist. He might have a problem relaxing.



3. I don't think fourth and 1 in week 15 is the ideal situation to give Donnell Bennett his first carry of the season.



Yes, yes, I'm sure Schottenheimer thought he would surprise the Dolphins, who were probably waiting for Marcus Allen. But in retrospect, it seems Bennett was the only one surprised on the play.

LOWERY HAD EVENTFUL KANSAS CITY HOMECOMING
That was some reception Jets' kicker Nick Lowery received during a recent weekend trip home to Kansas City. By the time it was finished, the following had occurred:

Chiefs' GM Carl Peterson called NFL headquarters and the Jets to deny he was tampering with Lowery, a charge neither party was even vaguely aware could be raised.

Peterson evicted Lowery from the Chiefs' sideline during a game.

Lowery was mobbed by adoring Chiefs fans, who have fond memories of his 14 seasons with them.

Lowery wrote a letter of apology to Chiefs kicker Lin Elliott for appearing to gloat about a field goal Elliott missed.

Here's what happened:

Lowery owns 10 season tickets to Chiefs games and intended to use them to watch K.C. play Seattle. But Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith invited him to visit some of his former teammates before the game, then to stand on the Chiefs' sideline.

Peterson, who is said to be angry at Lowery and the Jets for signing the kicker and defensive tackle Tony Casillas, asked Lowery if he had a pass. Lowery didn't, and Peterson told him to leave.

``It was inappropriate for him to be there because he is a New York Jet,'' Peterson explained. ``He is under contract to another club.''

Lowery then went to his seat, where fans came over and prompted an impromptu autograph session.

Then, Elliott missed a field goal. Fans seated around Lowery began chanting, ``We want Nick!''

``I stood to acknowledge the applause,'' Lowery said, ``and even gave the fans a tomahawk chop. But when it was shown on television, it looked as if I was gloating that Lin had missed the kick.''

When he got back to New York, Lowery sent Elliott a letter by express mail, saying he wished him good luck and that he wasn't celebrating his missed kick.

The league and Jets GM Dick Steinberg insist Peterson was correct in bouncing Lowery. Lowery, however, says what he was doing before the game ``was not consorting with the enemy'' and doesn't think his actions were inappropriate. He calls it a ``healing experience.''

Too bad the Jets and Chiefs don't play this season.

Talk about Lovefests.

There will be plenty more Herm video to be had. Wait until the Chiefs start dismantling in September. Excuses will abound, and hilarious ones at that.





Why?

At least Herm knows how to win a playoff game, something our last three didn't appear to know much about...

Most of the players on this team have been together for years and they're not going to just turn on each other and give up because we lose a few games.

Damn This is bad

A due end for the fraudulent Chiefs
By Tim Sullivan
SportsLine USA Regional Columnist
January 7, 1996
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Chiefs were a myth. An illusion. A mirage. They owned the NFL's best record but precious little to leave you in awe.

Technically speaking, they were upset by the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon. But it might have been more appropriate to call it comeuppance. No NFL team has gotten more mileage out of mediocrity. This is a credit to Marty Schottenheimer, but it is not the appropriate credential for a Super Bowl team.
THE COLTS SCORE A 10-7 victory in Sunday's dreary American Football Conference playoff game at Arrowhead Stadium, and in the process proved that everything is not up to date in Kansas City.

Defense wins championships, but it does not often overcome a quarterback who throws three interceptions (photo) in the space of four possessions or a kicker who develops a hook when it matters most. It can not always be counted on to counter for an offense that frightens no one.

Indianapolis might not be much of a match for Pittsburgh in Sunday's AFC Championship, but it is no fluke the Colts have made it this far. They exposed Chiefs quarterback Steve Bono for what he is Sunday: a career backup who caught a break.

"I knew if we put the ball in Bono's hands," Colts defensive end Tony Bennett said, "we'd have a pretty good chance of beating them."

"We knew he wasn't in the right rhythm," Colts cornerback Ray Buchanan said. "We took away a little bit of music. We turned on a little bit of brother music, and he couldn't dance to it."

The Colts mixed their coverages, beyond Bono's ability to decipher them. They held him to a 44-percent completion percentage, and ultimately shoved him to the sideline. Schottenheimer tried to save his season by substituting Rich Gannon for the Chiefs' final possession, and Gannon responded by moving the team within range of a tying field goal.


BUT ELLIOTT HOOKED it wide left from the right hash mark for his third miss in three tries, and Kansas City's 13-3 season was found to be a fraud.
"I would hope that in the weeks and months ahead we can get over the bitterness and disappointingment of this," Schottenheimer said, "and not lose sight of the fact that we had a reasonably good year. Unfortunately, by the standards that we set, it wasn't good enough."

The Chiefs have been walking a tightrope all season. They won three games in overtime and seven by seven points or less. They beat only one playoff team (San Diego) and were dismembered by both the mighty Dallas Cowboys and the mundane Cleveland Browns. Their record was more aberration than affirmation.

"The critics said this would be an easy game (for the Chiefs)," Indianapolis running back Zack Crockett said. "We came. We conquered. What else can you say?"

You might say that the Chiefs moved the ball as if it were a boulder and that their celebrated defense came up with a severe case of sloppiness. The Colts kept their 18-play touchdown drive going because quarterback Jim Harbaugh (photo) was able to scramble 18 yards against a confused defense.

Schottenheimer said his coverage was designed around a three-man rush on that particular play but that a fourth player did not hear the call correctly and afforded Harbaugh a running lane. Later on the drive, another blown Chiefs coverage made possible Harbaugh's touchdown pass to Floyd Turner.


THE COLTS' DEFENSE BY contrast, was something close to psychic. Bono completed only one pass for more than 20 yards and threw as many interceptions in the second half as he had in the whole month of December.

"Steve Bono's had a hell of a year for us," Schottenheimer said. "But when you're the quarterback or the kicker or you're the head coach and you don't get the job done, that's where the responsibility rests. That's just the nature of our business."

Pro football can be a cruel business, but things usually turn out right in the final reckoning. The Kansas City Chiefs were about due for their downfall.

Well, the primary criticism of Herm relates to the offense. In NY, he was trying to do alot of it (with Curl) himself, struggling with the clock, and depending on idiots like Jimmy Raye and Paul Hackett.

Here in KC, he won't have to touch the offense. The offensive system is already in place and Mike Solari will be calling the plays. Trent Green could run the offense all by himself anyway.

I don't feel sorry for him at all it's only a game. I believe he made his own reality and he missed those kicks in his mind a 1000 times before he did it on the field (why would he change shoes for the first time?).

You all said the name that must not be named. Why?

Lin Elliot.

Is that the name you speak of?

Because, as I said earlier, Lin Elliot is only a symptom of the Martyocre disease tha infested Arrowhead for 10 years.

Because Marty relied on Lin Elliot, when he should have known full well that Lin Elliot could not be relied upon.

Because Lin Elliot was only part of one playoff loss that Marty is responsible for.

Marty doesn't have Linn Elliot to blame for the rest of those losses.

I'm sure that there are other things I can say about Lin Elliot, that I'm sure that those who don't like Linn Elliot don't agree with.

I'll tell you what those things are about Lin Elliot, as I think of those things that those who disagree with my belief that Linn Elliot is far less responsible than Marty.

What were you asking about Linn Elliot?
I forgot what you're Linn Elliot question was.

Oh yeah.
Linn Elliot is a name that we are not supposed to mention.

I'm sure Linn Elliot appreciates that people don't like discussing Linn Elliot, or don't like to see the name Linn Elliot mentioned.

Maybe Linn Elliot is hoping that someday fans will forget the name Linn Elliot.

But I doubt that the name Linn Elliot will ever be forgotten, even long after Linn Elliot dies.

I'm flying out of Houston, getting a connecting flight from Dallas to Nashville...got it all timed out, and, given even a minor delay, should be back home in time to catch the kickoff at the house.
I land in Dallas, and only have 20 minutes to catch my connecting flight, and I'm carrying this friggin pastamaker (a Christmas gift) that weighs 50 pounds through DFW. Kinda stressed that I don't have a minute to spare, until I look at the departures, and it reads DFW-BNA-delayed..
So I'm thinking, "OK, this gives me some time to catch my breath from dragging that damn pastamaker halfway across the terminal." I get to my gate and ask how long the delay is, and the woman tells me she doesn't know, but it shouldn't be all that long.
"Oookay," I say, and me and my pastamaker trundle off to the closest watering hole to watch the game prior to the Chiefs-Colts game, which I don't even remember what it was.
An hour later, thinking that now, if my plane leaves within the next 30 minutes, I'll be in the air for the kickoff but should be home in time to sit down with my dogs and watch the second half-no problem. So I go to gate, and our flight still says delayed. The attendant is tight-lipped about the problem.
To make a long story a little bit less long, turns out a ValuJet took off from Nashville and tried to climb too steep, and tore out a big chunk of its tail in the middle of a snow/ice storm with winds gusting up to 50mph, scattering debris all over the runways. So I had to sit in the DFW airport bar with my pastamaker, waiting for this flight, spending an exorbitant amount of money on watered-down drinks, thinking already, that I had a bad feeling about this, and watching the entire f**king game in that bar and hearing my flight called just exactly when he missed that kick!!!
Did it get it any worse than that? Yea-and Lin, this is for you.
I boarded the plane, kind of in shock from what I'd just witnessed, and we proceeded to take off, and I was left to my thoughts about how horrible the day had been so far, and if Lin Elliot had been able to get out of Arrowhead in one piece. I was kind of enjoying the company of the people surrounding me, a family of six with four kids, one on either side of me.
Now, listen to me Elliot... this is where I'll never forget you, you son of a bitch. About 20 miles out of Nashville, we start to encounter some severe turbulence (remember the snow and ice and wind?) and the kids on either side of me start puking in my lap, on their mom and dad in the seats in front of them, and on my lap again. We are getting ready to touch down, and suddenly we pull up, and the pilot comes on and tells us that they have to de-ice the runway before we can land. So a little more puking, and I'm thinking "Damn you Lin Elliot"
I'm not done, sorry to say.
We get on the ground, and I'm parked in long term parking. I get to my car in the driving snow and the keyhole is frozen shut. I try to heat it up with a lighter and manage to get in through the drivers door. I start the car up, and let it start to warm up. The headlights are the retracable kind and they are frozen shut, so I figure all I need to do is let the car warm up some more, and I'll get the damn pastamaker and my luggage in while the car is warming up some more. I walk around to the passenger seat and open up the door, and I'd let the driver's door open, for some ungodly reason, and my parking ticket blew out the door.
I had to pay 75 bucks for long-term parking, about the same for a bar tab for shitty drinks, had the pleasure of two kids barfing on me for 90 minutes, and got to watch that worthless piece of crap miss that field goal. Had he made it, everything else on my little oddessey would have been fine.

He didn't ruin my life, but, I tell you what, contributed more than his share to one of the worst days I had had in a long time.
