Gannon: Chiefs were bad but not the worst (http://www.kansascity.com/sports/chiefs/story/798687.html)


Former Chief and former Raider Rich Gannon said he was shocked by the Chiefs’ woeful play on Sunday. But Gannon said he doesn’t consider the Chiefs the bottom of the barrel in the NFL.

“Nah, nothing like that,” said Gannon, who was the CBS analyst for Sunday’s game.

“They played pretty hard at New England the week before. But for whatever reason, they just couldn’t stop the run on Sunday. But we knew going in they wouldn’t be a playoff-type team.”

Gannon, for diplomatic reasons no doubt, wouldn’t identify who might be worse than the Chiefs (the team across the state?).

“It’s a young, young team that will have short memories,” he said. “As badly as they played Sunday, and it was bad, they can bounce right back this week and play much better.

“That’s kind of what young teams do. They look so bad at some point you want to give up on them, and then they bounce right back the next week.”

Was there anything that impressed Gannon?

“I really like the young corners,” he said. “I liked Brandon Flowers and Brandon Carr. I could see at some point that they would start Carr and move Patrick Surtain inside on the nickel.

“I also liked Branden Albert. This team had a good draft, a very good draft. I know it’s painful to watch now.”

As for the play of quarterback Tyler Thigpen…

“He’s got a good arm and good legs, and he has some obvious ability,” Gannon said. “But he needs a lot of reps. He just needs the work. You can tell that his timing with the receivers was way off, guys weren’t ready for the throws.”

Was there any way Gannon could have foreseen such a whipping by the Raiders?

“No, not a chance,” he said. “We saw in practice Friday that there was going to be a quarterback rotation, and maybe that should have alarmed us, but I still thought they’d play good enough defense to hang in there.”

AFC patsy?

Deion Sanders, on the NFL Network on Sunday, views the Broncos-Chiefs game in two weeks as nothing more than a scheduling layup for the Broncos.

“Kansas City is a homecoming game,” Sanders said.

Ouch. We should note, though, that the game is at Arrowhead.

Beasley’s agent

There have been Internet reports flying that former K-State star Michael Beasley, now of the Miami Heat, has fired his agent because of a rift over endorsement deals.

The Sun-Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale reported that the NBA Players Association confirmed that Beasley had filed papers to sever his ties with agent Joel Bell.

But according to the Miami Herald, Beasley’s personal assistant, Bruce Shingler, denied a report that Beasley had let Bell go.

Gannon's a ****ing moron.

For those of you that didn't hear the broadcast, he said that Larry Johnson had over "17,000 yards rushing".

17,000?

He also said a bunch of other stupid shit, which is why he's relegated to the freakin' 7th team on CBS.

Of course, Drunky McDrunk (Flanagan) picks it up like it's some kind of "story".

Keep drinkin', Jeff.

LOL, he takes a shot at the Rams......quick news here the Rams have had their asses beaten yes but by the Eagles and Giants who would both do the same to the Chiefs...the Chiefs got their shit kicked in by the Raiders there's a difference.

Right now I'm not sure you can logically make an argument for a team being worse than the Chiefs.

I think at the end of each NFL season, the two teams with the worst records should play for the right to the #1 pick. Winner gets it. No coach will admit it, but come week 14 or 15(or earlier), teams start tanking it to get that pick. They could call it the retard bowl. Hundreds would watch.

Problem is the players don't want that pick.

Didn’t hear the broadcast, but aren’t we bing a tad bit harsh there Dane?
He may very well have made a "slip up" when spewing out facts (much like ALL broadcasters do) during broadcasts, when they run out of intelligence to mystify us with.

I await the day when you fall out of perfection and god forbid say something not 100% accurate.
Whould this make you like Gannon? A ****ing moron?
NOPE!
He was an NFL MVP :thumb:

First we suckered the Chiefs into taking Chester "The Hump" McGlocton off our hands for us.
Then got ya even better when you bunch kept Elvis and let us have Gannon.

AND YOUR STILL PISSED! 4321

Nah, I don't care about that stuff, Dude. It's not "Raider" hate. It's being forced to listen to a moron who's unprepared to do a broadcast.

He's trying to be nice but you notice how he didn't have a specific team in mind and he realized he spoke before he thought about what he was saying.
