View Full Version : So with Vermeil we did have a bad defense, but....

... at least we had a good offense. :banghead:

Our lines absolutely suck on both sides of the ball. Yeah yeah it's preseason, yada yada and we went 0-4 last preseason. But our first unit (at least on the 'O') were competative. This sh!t does not inspire any hope for the real season.

Please tell me we are deliberately playing vanilla on both sides of the ball WHILE THE OTHER TEAMS HAVE PLAYED THEIR REGULAR SEASON PLAYBOOKS!!

Law said we had a bag of tricks. I personally see Law and Surtain and the rest of our D showing up against the Bengals with plastic pumpkins begging for candy.

PREseason. It's the PREseason.

Pats went 4-0 in preseason and 1-15 or 2-14 in the real season one time. That's all you need to know about PREseason games in terms of W-L.

I don't put much stock in preseason, but Kevin Sampson should be riding the pine.

He is absolutely terrible.

I only saw last night so I don't know how he looked against Houston.

Put Black back at RT.

He looked like a swinging door when he was at Tackle against Houston........guys ran right around him numerous times.

remember when madden was talking about 'nose over toes'? sampson is a classic case.

bad footwork will make you wanna stand up, in your mind you know that to get leverage you gotta stay low.
nose over toes is what happens.

Last night, our offensive line was missing 3 of it's 5 starters from last year. That has nothing to do with the loss of Vermeil or the addition of Herm.

the loss ot T-rich is a bigger loss than roaf.

turley can be serviceable, cruz hasnt showed anything thus far. Doesnt look confident in his PB.

Exactly. It's like the Vikes/Raiders game the other night. Even tho the Raiders won, I would have rather been a Viking fan at the end of it. They "played" much better.

I normally don't post "We're Doomed" threads. But my recently traumatized ticker deserves a winning Chiefs team. And this one looks totally lost.

I wonder if our OC has any direct input in the O-Line. Could it be we went from NFL's best OL coach to one of the worst in one off-season? THAT is my big nightmare.

We looked the same way against Houston. Maybe a bit better!! By all accounts we looked terrible against the Vikes in the scrimmage too.

so why don't you just make another "calm down" thread to offset it.

Why would it?

I see your point. But my question was more geared to long term. Do we still have an O-line coach who can create great linemen out of former TEs or DEs? Solari showed that he could. That's why I wanna know if he is still specially involved with the O-line too or are we to hope that our current O-line couch is half as good as Solari? I obviously want this great O-line tradition to continue for the Chiefs. If so we need to see backups who are capable enough to start if a starter goes down, with minimum drop in the O-line quality. Frankly the quality of our O-line depth scares me. Shields is last year's Roaf. Great player but old and fragile. Who knows if he can do an entire season now.

I want some of what you are smoking. :bong:

The loss of an FB, a great FB, but still an FB, is worse than the loss of an All-Decade, First ballot HOF LT? :shake:

That's what I was going to say. W-L doesn't matter. The effort I saw does matter. They need to shake that funk before the season starts.

On the other hand, maybe they were just tired.
