Was talking to a knowledgable NFL that he heard an interview with Huard and Huard stated that all the big pass plays were Trent Green play calls. Anyone else hear this or is this person full of crap?

I believe it. Trent would know based on D setup what would work....more so than Solari.

I obviously have no inside information, but I would guess Trent was making suggestions and had input. Any veteran QB in the NFL would have been doing the same thing. A veteran QB knows the system. His suggestions will definitely be listened to.

I don't, I hope he goes into private business or broadcasting.

No way Trent becomes a coach. He's headed to an analyst job somewhere.

I am salivating at the thought of Green tutiling Croyle for the first several years of his career.

I forsee a seamless transition if that happens.

Hopefully Green comes back for at least 1 more year though... just enough to give Croyle just a bit more time learning as opposed to getting hammered.

If Trent comes back and plays on the level we know he can i dont see why he cant play another 2 years.

Yeah, that's true, more $$$. Maybe he can eventually replace Len Dawson doing the radio broadcast. I think Trent likes KC and will want to stay here.

Trent calling plays...huh, that would explain the lack of boneheaded timeouts and fumbling around due to not knowing the down/distance.

Damn it, fire Solari now and just let T call plays from the sideline and then call them himself from the huddle/line when he's healthy and playing again. Why pay that little stooge up in the booth?

They've made their home here, so it wouldn't surprise me to see him stay. I heard him on the radio the other day talking about it... that's part of the reason, he said, he thinks so many people wrote cards and sent well-wishes after his injury, because he and his wife have embraced KC as their home. He's not one of the players that plays in KC, but lives somewhere else. He lives here year-round.

Because by the time Trent blinks the play call to the medical staff and then they relay the play to Huard the play clock would be down to 02. We would never get a play off.

Before that, I hope he'll finally be allowed to change plays on the field. Better yet, call most of the 'O' plays while he is quarterbacking.

that's so NOT FUNNY.

I would like to see Trent stay on as Coach after his days are done.

But for now get better, get back to QBing the Chiefs.

Were you not around during the Paul Hackett years?



In a post-game interview, I swear that someone - can't remember if it was Herm or Huard, but I think Huard - mention that "Trent calls good plays." That could mean that he just had input, but it sounded to me like he was involved.

We finally have a very solid offensive performance and this shit comes out?

Do you honestly think Trent...coming off a bad concusion.... is going to be calling plays instead of the damn offensive coordinator? When he's only been trusted to drive a vehicle for less than a week or so? That's the most stupid thing I've heard all day.

What does Solari have to do to get any respect? Sheesh.....

+1 to jynni. That'd definitely be a start.

FWIW, I read on two separate sites that Trent had significant input into playcalling vs. the Niners. Given the night/day offensive performance, is it that difficult to believe that Solari was less involved?

It's either that or he (Solari) had a brain transplant and grew a pair during the bye week.

i think trent loves the game more than the $$$, i wouldnt mind seeing trent on the sidelines or in the coaching booth for us when his playing days are finally numbered.

Or maybe Solari is finding his groove, it takes awhile for most new OCs

Also I dont seem to remember the offenses under Saunders being fast starters either. This team always takes a few weeks to get going.

YES.

No matter what your opinion of Solari is, he's the OC and he calls the plays. And they aren't going to let a brain-bruised QB take the reigns from him.

Yes, I'm sure Trent was involved. But there is a big difference between being involved and calling the plays. Every time a vet QB is sidelined with injury, he's gonna do what he can to help the backup QB through the game.

But to say Trent's "playcalling" is the reason for the offensive improvement is just plain ignorant.

I hope Trent stays just enough of a Retart to stay on the sideline and call plays and we win 41-0 every game the rest of the year!

Didn't Trent say that he had designed a few plays during his recovery from the illegal and brutal hit by the cheating moron of a Bengal?

Perhaps what they're speaking of has to do with Trent working with Solari during preparation, Mr. KC Fish.

Did you?Actually, given the hiring of Herm and his staff, the absence of Priest, the loss of Roaf...I tried to block it out of my mind completely. Unfortunately that didn't work, so on 9/10 I was sucked right back in like I always am. I'm a sucker that way.

Now, why don't you go sing a medley with Edith and leave the rest of this discussion to the adults in the room.

I heard that Solari called the play too early a couple of times, so Herm demoted him and gave Trent the start at offensive coordinator.

How much input Trent had only the coaching staff, Green and Huard know. I do sure hope though that Green is cleared to fly so he can help out Huard this weekend.

That is what I thought, too. Herm said that Trent had designed some long passing plays to be run out of the two TE sets. The one to Dante in the endzone looked new.

I also thought the offense had a bit of a West Coast Offense feel, with the split backs and short passes.

Actually, it is. Trent isn't going to just come in and over-rule the coaches.

Did he make suggestions? Most likely. Were they followed? Quite possibly. Was it Solari's final call? Most certainly.
