On the game: “We didn’t get the result we wanted tonight. I think we made too many mistakes to think we could have a chance to win a game. I think we got to look at a lot of guys which is a positive. You can’t expect to win games converting 23% of your third downs, which was a major problem for us, and you can’t expect to win a game with the penalties we had in the situations that we had. Never until that fourth quarter could we get anything going enough to feel like we had any momentum. We’re back to work on Monday. We’re in training camp mode and we’re back in pads.”

What will you remember of this your first game at Arrowhead? “If you can tell me the first real one is a win I’ll make this one a loss any day of the week. It’s a special feeling when it’s your team and a lot of responsibility comes with that and tonight I didn’t live up to that end of it.”

Did you leave your starting offense in a little longer than you anticipated? “No, we had pretty much said we were going to go about a quarter and a half. It was just the way that it fell and we wanted to make sure they got enough snaps and we were keeping track of that. It was the same decision we wanted to make at the end with the second defense, if they got enough snaps or not.”

Were you anticipating more success getting things going? “I would have liked to have definitely done more with that first group. But again, we got a holding penalty that put us in a hole. We got a false start by the tackle which got us out of a manageable situation and into a not so manageable situation. That’s really the thing we have to take out of it. We need to be a smart football team to think we have a chance to win.”

How do you balance getting your point across to Dwayne Bowe but also giving Matt Cassel a weapon? “I thought Dwayne came out tonight and, really, in the last two days at practice in training camp saw that he’s definitely started to show up. In this game I thought he definitely showed up. That to me was a definite positive, without a doubt. But again, like I said, we’re going to play the guys that we think are doing it the way we want it done. That was the way we went tonight, but again that can change. But Bowe, the last two days of training camp and then tonight, definitely showed something.”

On Brodie Croyle’s first time on the field in about a year: “It was great for Brodie. He got a lot of playing time under his belt in very difficult situations and he made a couple of really nice throws in poor weather conditions, to say the least. That is nothing but positive for Brodie coming off the injury. This was a great win for him getting his feet wet.”

What did you think of Matt Cassel’s performance? “The fumbled snap was probably the biggest thing we’ve got to figure out. Obviously the ball is wet, but we’ve got to handle the football and we can’t have failed center-quarterback exchanges of all things. There are enough other things that can go wrong on plays. I think the called play was a potential shot to push the ball down the field a little bit. Other than that, I thought Matt was okay. We played pretty close to the vest with him in there and we ran the ball a bunch. I know we weren’t winging it around a lot.”

On Tyler Thigpen’s performance: “Tyler was put into a very difficult situation just from the standpoint of the score and the weather. I thought he did a nice job of moving the team down the field. We were turning guys free, it appeared to me, and he was running for his life there at the end and made some plays where he probably shouldn’t have. Tyler gave us a chance to win the game.”

On the defense: “I thought there were some positives. A couple of runs looked like we didn’t fit quite right, the way we had to. Overall, I thought we were doing a decent job of stopping the run against a pretty good running team.”

It's so refreshing to have a head coach speaking for the Chiefs after a game who is actually coherent and seems to have a train of thought behind what he is saying.
