As if getting the shaft over Pollard wasn't enough, I'm now listening to 810 where Petro is being critical of the cut and supporting BP.

And the Taylor cut too.

Shoulda have kept Pollard for ST......because frankly, our ST play is crap.

I really don't get the Herb Taylor cut. We don't have anyone to backup LT Albert should he get hurt.

I am really surprised at the Taylor cut. BP was just too much of a liability though.

You simply can't put guys on the filed who are prone to giving up the big play.

With Pollard on the field, there's always a good chance that he's gonna give up a deep ball, or take a bad angle and miss a TD saving tackle.

I truly think playing with G. Wesley hurt Pollard badly. He is basically a Wesley clone.

Before the 2007 season, I was prepared to make Pollard my favorite chief, and expected him to become a huge force for us. Unfortunately, he became a huge disappointment.

Add Thigpen still on the roster, and this whole thing looks Ultra-Tard.

Special teams would have been okay but I think he was being made an example of and it only cost us a special teams player. Message should have been delivered.

Well I'm not as pissed about that.....we're talking about a 3rd string QB.

BP can really be a force on ST, an area this whole team needs major improvement on. It's not like he can't be of use on this team. So his shafting still kinda puzzles me. Yes his coverage skills are horrid. He shouldnt see the field except ST.

Who the fuck is going to backup Albert at LT?!?!? Herb has showed he can pass block. He played somewhat well last season. I absolutely dont understand that shafting by any means. There's really no meaning to it. Clearly there isn't anyone better at LT than Herb that can backup Albert. At least I havent seen it........yet

Pollard whiffed on how many tackles? And Petro wanted to put him as an LB so the play can develop in front of him? Hello...that is what happens as Saftey.

I think that this conversation should also include talk of Dajuan Morgan's camp. I think that that Morgan showed up at the end of camp - making plays - and flying all over the field...making Pollard expendable.

Exactly what message is that? That anyone can be cut? I think everyone already knows that.

Point is we don't have hardly ANY talent on this football team, there are holes everywhere. ST have sucked ever since DV left. We need good ST players. Pollard was shit on defense. but the guy can make plays on ST.

If Pollard and Taylor were so good, why has no one else picked them up yet? I am not sure why everyone is so upset about their release. I am all for getting rid of all of Herm's garbage and starting fresh. The Chiefs are not going to win the Super Bolw this year, or next, so what's the point of keeping someone who just fills up a roster spot and may block one kick this year. Maybe we'll only lose by 10 instead of 13......Let Haley and Pioli do what they do and if it doesn't work out then you can start bitching. But we know that the Herm and Carl was didn't work.

Petro compared Pioli to Carl. That's gotta' sting.

This is when the Chiefs will turn the corner and become a NFL team agian. Herm left us very little in the ways of talent. His evaluation skills that everyone praise are shit at best!

If Albert goes down with an injury, their screwed no matter what at this point. They obviously did not think that Taylor has the skills to perform at a high enough level, so if they need a backup, they'll take their chances with someone else. If Taylor gets signed somewhere else and ends up being an impact player then I'll be pissed, but come one.....we're talking about a guy who couldn't start for one of the worst O-lines in the league. He is the least of my worries.

Has either been signed by another team? I sure hope we sign Taylor back and give him a better opportunity at guard or backup LT.

I actually think Morgan is going to end up with the FS spot.

I hope Mike Brown doesn't get hurt, and is half the player Billay thinks he's gonna be.

Pollard was shit on defense. but the guy can make plays on ST.I was assuming it was some sort of message. Why else would he be cut? He can defintely play special teams in the NFL, especailly on our piss poor team, but he was cut.

Maybe there is more to the BP cutting too, maybe he took a shit on the locker room floor or something...

Petro was supporting Pollard only in the role as a STer.

Soren killed him on his defensive "skills," so it wasn't exactly a glowing endorsement by any means.

BP is just the latest, in a long line of 2nd round bust for the Chiefs, nothing new here.

But at least they got a 2nd for Tony, double the pleasure.

Hopefully the trend changes with Pioli.

The bottom line to me is who cares. Debating whether or not to keep guys who haven't done anything to help you win is pointless. You replace them with someone else who does the job that they're supposed to do and help you win games.

If the Pats can cut guys like Milloy and Law and still win championships, we can cut Pollard and Taylor and win more than 2 freakin' games...

And the arguement that he was great on ST doesn't do much for me either. Even if he was a stud on ST, our ST have sucked since DV left. So he obviously must not be helping that much. Get rid of all the garbage from the past regime and start new.

RoR, my bro....I understand.

Look, some may have noticed me being quiet. Maybe nobody noticed at all. I don't care. The cut of Bernard Pollard AND Herb Taylor came as a shock to me as well. As most of you know, BP is one of my favorite players, and this one stung a little bit. Evidence of that can be found in my most recent blog.

Look man, I trust this staff, and this general manager. I will not pretend to agree with everything they do, NOR will I botch when something goes down that I might not agree with. I think the direction of this football team is clear, and I still think this football team can win this year.

Regardless, they have to start now. Farewell Bernard Pollard. You were entertaining. This is the NFL, and just like good ole Jerry down in Atlanta said so many years ago...

That stands for ..NOT FOR LONG.

I trust Scott Pioli. I trust Todd Haley

I never said he sucked at ST.
You know what? Who fucking sucks more; a player brought in to the league under the worst coaches in the history of the franchise, a Head Coach and D-Coord that couldn't get thorns from a fucking cactus in the desert if they tried much less make an average guy better OR, the dumb fuck GM who signs a Quarterback for 60 fucking million dollars and makes no provision to protect his investment?

I have a pretty good idea of what "doing it our way" means in the case of Pollard. He wasn't great, but he probably has more common sense in his Kong-sized dong than Pioli has in his entire fucking body.

I tend to agree with Soren.
I think both of these players should still be on this roster.
Don't think Pollard's a starter? Fine... Put Brown in his spot, but that guy should never have been cut outright. He does contribute to Special Teams.
