Haley shows some courage (http://www.kansascity.com/sports/chiefs/story/1463265.html)
JASON WHITLOCK COMMENTARY

Rookie head coach Todd Haley has a big pair.

You could see that Tuesday afternoon when he opened his news conference with a brief apology to the media for a postgame inconvenience orchestrated by Chiefs general manager Scott Egoli.

“Apologize for after the game, being out there late,” Haley said. “Rookie head coach here, rookie mistake. Unaware of the time limit and how that makes it harder for you guys to do your job after the game.”

And you could really see Haley’s courage when he talked about the play of his quarterbacks, The Sixty Million Dollar Man and Brokie Croyle.

Despite Matt Cassel’s hefty price tag and the stake Egoli has in Cassel’s success, Haley appears quite determined to make Cassel earn untouchable-franchise-QB status.

“You gotta ultimately do what you think gives your team the best chance to win,” Haley responded to a question about his QB philosophy. “If that means another quarterback being in there other than Matt Cassel, then sign me up.”

That was the money quote. Haley set it up by reminding reporters that as an NFL assistant in New York, Dallas and Arizona, he participated in the process of Glenn Foley, Drew Bledsoe and Matt Leinart getting demoted in favor of Vinny Testaverde, Tony Romo and Kurt Warner.

Haley’s Tuesday news conference was absolutely fascinating. It was Bill Parcells-esque, not Bill Belichick-esque.

You understand the difference? In dealing with the media, Parcells is real, honest, straightforward. Belichick is intentionally bland, mysterious and worthless. Haley was groomed by Parcells. Egoli was groomed by Belichick.

Parcells has been successful everywhere he’s coached. Belichick built a dynasty in New England after flopping in Cleveland.

We’re two weeks into the Haley-Egoli regular-season marriage, and I believe we’ve just seen our first public sign these guys might be unequally yoked. There are definite signals they disagree about Egoli’s Sixty Million Dollar Man.

Monday afternoon, I was mesmerized listening to 610 Sports as former Chiefs player and NFL broadcaster Bill Maas explained his opinion that Haley wanted to start Brodie Croyle against the Raiders and that Egoli objected.

I thought Maas was crazy, but he sounded very convincing.

Tuesday, as I listened to Haley discuss his QBs, I had to admit Billy Bob knew something.

Haley was asked if he could envision Cassel not being the starting quarterback this season.

“I wouldn’t speculate on that,” Haley said. “There were a lot of positives in Matt’s performance.”

Haley then added that in a typical football game, there are seven critical plays a quarterback can make that will be the difference between winning and losing.

“There were clearly seven in (the Raiders) game where we’d probably like to do something different,” Haley said.

In case you missed the connection, dude just said Cassel went zero for seven on game-deciding plays. That pretty much answers how Haley feels about the end-of-half debacle, the sack Cassel took on third and 1 at the end of the game and an assortment of other offensive calamities.

As for Croyle, Herm Edwards’ quarterback of the future, Haley had nothing but good things to say about Kansas City’s opening-day starter.

“I’m excited about Brodie’s progress,” Haley said. “I think Brodie getting to play in the first game, got his feet under him a little bit, started to gain some confidence, and I think that was clear in last week’s practices.”

Haley later relived Kansas City’s close loss at Baltimore: “I thought Brodie Croyle went into a very difficult situation, hostile environment, against a very good defense, and he looked like an NFL quarterback. He gave us a legitimate chance to win. He executed the game plan the way he was asked to execute it.”

So what do I think?

Croyle’s too injury-prone to be my starter. And Cassel was way too unproven to be anybody’s Sixty Million Dollar Man. Haley is in a tough position. I’m impressed with the way he’s handling it. He’s attempting to be true to the message he’s delivered to his players — every position is open to competition.

I haven’t made up my mind about Haley. I’ve had only one opportunity to really talk with him, and that sitdown was ruined by Egoli. He talked over the top of Haley the whole night (a three-hour dinner). Seriously, questions were asked directly to Haley, and Egoli drowned out the rookie head coach with fury, arrogance and rants about championship teams being built by playing secrecy games with the local media.

I was embarrassed for Haley and in awe of Pioli’s ego. I’ve covered professional sports for 16 years, wrestled with King Carl Peterson, stood toe to toe with drunken, delusional, hostile millionaire athletes, battled Mike Lupica and irritated billionaire owners.

None of them can touch Scott Egoli.

I like the fact Kansas City has a football coach with a pair big enough to try.

But I do agree with him on one thing. Haley's got a set on him.

Whitlock is a hack of mountainous proportions.

He has a personal agenda to push.

He thinks that the media should get some kind of special treatment, and since Pioli isn't giveng him that treatment, he reaches, draws conclusions with only the most minimal info to support those reaches.

He's the worst columnist I've ever read, and has been since the first time I saw his weak ass material.

Why would Scott hire a head coach that doesn't see eye to eye on his own philosopjhy about players and winning? I don't buy it. I really doubt there is some kind of rift between them about the QB. If Cassel stinks it up so bad this year then we will hit the draft for another. I have no doubt that's what Scott would do.

Not to mention the "fury" and "rants" that Pioli was alleged to use at this dinner? Where were they, in the back of an Italian restaurant? It just doesn't fit Pioli's tight-lipped, controlled, Patriot Way mentality.

I'm going to have to watch it, because reading the interview made it seem like he was just saying that Brodie was doing okay, nothing to get excited about, but if he happened upon Joe Montana he would be willing to bench Cassel.

And we don't know if he the reason he wanted to start Brodie was because he was worried about whether Cassel could play on the injured leg, especially since a big part of his game is scrambling and moving around in the pocket.

What Albom did was write a column as if his two interview subjects were at the Michigan State-North Carolina NCAA tournament Final Four game in St. Louis on April 2. In earlier interviews, former Michigan State players Jason Richardson and Mateen Cleaves told Albom they planned to attend the game, but they did not.


Filing on Friday for a section that was printed by Saturday morning, several hours before the game, Albom wrote, and copy editors did not change, that Richardson and Cleaves had flown in for the game and were in the stands wearing Michigan State clothing.


The column emphasized how much Cleaves and Richardson missed their college experiences. It turned out schedule conflicts kept both players from attending the game.

This is 100% Whitlock stirring the pot. Pioli has never struck me as egotistical or arrogant, just confident. If Whitlock wants to call that arrogance, then so be it. But if dude was egotistical, he'd be all over the media getting his name out there and making sure he eclipsed his head coach in every manner. That's what Carl did, every time he had an issue he'd go straight to one of his cronies in the press and lob some verbal salvos back.

I'm pretty sure that Whitlock is referring to the three hour dinner that many front offices do prior to the season with the media in order to meet and greet all the reporters, and that it wasn't a one on two dinner. I'm also not going to put much stock in a guy basing his opinion of a GM and coach based on one sitdown dinner convo and one Brian Waters story. I mean up to now he was calling Haley an idiot and arrogant, and now he's praising him for having a pair? Give me a break...

Yeah, it's interesting and I'll give him that. However, it's entirely overshadowed by his personal dislike of Pioli. I honestly don't give two shits about Whitlock's "lack of access".

Egoli drowned out the rookie head coach with fury, arrogance and rants about championship teams being built by playing secrecy games with the local media.

Fury? Arrogance? Right...that doesn't sound a wee bit exaggerated.

Pioli's helped take a team to the top of the mountain....multiple times! As for playing secrecy games with the media, that's just too fuckin' bad. If he says every Kansas City Chief employee needs to wear monkey suits on Thursdays prior to gameday and THAT'S the key to winning Super Bowls, then every goddamn employee better follow suit. If winning a Super Bowl means less access, then so be it.

Hell, Whitlock could be right about all of this. Pioli's truly could be acting like a douche and we could be 0-32 in our next two seasons despite the lack of press involvement, but Whitlock's going about this in such a bitchy fashion it makes it very VERY hard to take his word on any of this.

I don't buy this limp, skinny, "division" argument Whittles is trying to flop out on the table.

I'm convinced that Pioli and Haley are on the same page. It's one of the reasons we're bringing in poor, lost wideouts like a receivers orphanage. This is not a Carl/Herm debacle in the making ... both those guys are too smart for that. As for Pioli "talking over" Haley at dinner, my guess would be that Haley was speechless in the presence of a giant, ego-maniacal, fatass hack with manboobs the size of truck tires.

Another double serving of meritless speculation with extra fries.

Whitlock can stir up all the shit he wants, and if Pioli and Haley do their job... in the end it won't mean a thing.

It's not that they look down on the media, its just that they have more important things to worry about.

Whitlock obviously has vastly overrated his and "the media" in general's importance. He's resorted to throwing bitch fits wayyyy before he's got any sort of track record to justify them.

...he did no research, contacted no one, checked no sources, characterized a dinner with two other people without giving them an opportunity to respond, and listened to the radio and decided it "sounded convincing"...and repeated the same childish name calling against pioli....


it's something a 9 yr old would write, and something a 9 yr old would like....

In fairness, the dinner was their opportunity to respond and it was an interview. Whitlock can react to it in any fashion, and the fact that he spent that much time with Haley and Pioli constitutes research.

You're letting your dislike for Whitlock cloud your reaction to this piece.

The name calling, by Whitlock, has grown tiresome, though.

I think the point is, that if they get the job done, what the media says right now is irrelevant. Whitlock can stir up all the shit he wants, and if Pioli and Haley do their job... in the end it won't mean a thing.

It's not that they look down on the media, its just that they have more important things to worry about.

Whitlock obviously has vastly overrated his and "the media" in general's importance. He's resorted to throwing bitch fits wayyyy before he's got any sort of track record to justify them.

What if he wrote columns about not liking the moves they make and such because if I was writing them they'd look like that..

I don't buy this limp, skinny, "division" argument Whittles is trying to flop out on the table.

I'm convinced that Pioli and Haley are on the same page. It's one of the reasons we're bringing in poor, lost wideouts like a receivers orphanage. This is not a Carl/Herm debacle in the making ... both those guys are too smart for that. As for Pioli "talking over" Haley at dinner, my guess would be that Haley was speechless in the presence of a giant, ego-maniacal, fatass hack with manboobs the size of truck tires.

Another double serving of meritless speculation with extra fries.

I agree, Mr. FAX, that there is scant evidence to support the division theory, and thus Whitlock's overall argument is weak as hell.

It's probably most overblown because it's not like these guys are going to agree on everything.

People disagree in the workplace on a daily basis. As long as they can be civil and keep working on the same goal that's all that matters... that's probably the sensational part of it. There's not a person on here who hasn't been told to do something by their boss they didn't want to do.

C'mon folks, you can't make ice cream out of water, I don't care how hard you stir.

And you know...so do I. If the players showed up with half of the passion he coaches with, we'd have a chance.

We made dumb mistakes last week. We're a young, vastly short on talent team in more positions than not, so show some fortitude, this was going to happen. Sucks that it had to happen against the Faid.

I'm little concerned that Pioli might be an issue much like CP was. I do believe in having both a strong personality for each role, HC and GM. It's healthy and good for the team in the long run.

Charger fans are learning the hard way about a strong personality in the GM position but not in the HC position. AJ Smith got rid of Marty and replaced him with Norv who is a push over among other things. It not working out.

You frequently need stress, strain, and disagreement. You also need each person to stay out of each other's way so they can do their jobs.

Let's hope Pioli gives Haley some room.

And therein is the crux of the issue.

Brodie Croyle, even if he isn't a better quarterback than Matt Cassel right now, is a very talented player, and you could argue he has more raw talent than Cassel.

Whether or not he can get past his shortcomings, both mental (checking down too much, and the previous coaching staff) and physical (injuries) should be the only factors that limit his ability to contribute and succeed with this franchise. Someone else's contract should not hold back the best player for the team from playing if "The Right 53" is to be believed.

The fact of the matter is that those who were so quick to dismiss Croyle's performance in Baltimore are in most cases the same to praise Cassel's against Oakland, when, if they were transposed, so would be their opinions of the superior performance.

Personally, if I were given a $60 million dollar plus contract, there's nothing that anyone could say in the press or public that would affect me.

Sounding more and more like Haley didnt make the call for Cassel.

The first opinion Haley gave PUBLICLY on Cassel was, and I quote:

"He seems like a guy who has the right mental make-up, I hope that he can play".

Does that sound like the ringing endorsement of a Head Coach who is in love with his hand-picked Quarterback to you?

I think last weeks game shows how inconsistent Cassel is throwing down the field, asking him to be a downfield passer is just flirting with fuckups.

We're talking about two throws. Two.

Cassel has no deep threat so safeties are gonna hover in the 25-yard range all game long.

It's gonna be tough sledding, and throwing to midget doesn't make it easier.

Well, yeah...I hope so.

But I doubt any QB wants to play with someone breathing down his neck...

Instead of him going out there and playing how he knows how to play, now he has to "think" about not messing up because of the ol' QB controversy that probably doesn't even exist.

I don't understand how anyone who actually watched the two games can say they saw more out of Brodie than they did out of Cassel.

We had like 30 god damn yards of offense in the 1st half...and I refuse to count the stat-padding pass to Charles to end the 2nd quarter...

I mean, Brodie led on us on ONE good drive...whoopee...and it was when the Ravens softened up because they just took a 7 point lead and thought there was no way in hell we could match it (I mean, did anyone think we had a shot?)...If they had been up by a field goal...I'm sure we would have seen another 3rd and 8 freak out check down from Croyle...

Seriously...talk about some bullshit here.

Yes, clearly more deleterious than throwing a left handed interception from your own end zone, or overthrowing an open receiver at the 10 yard line that leads to easy points, or missing an open receiver and causing a 70 yard INT return, or taking a sack when you could just throw the ball away, or losing track of the game and clocking it on fourth down, or lining up under the guard, or throwing a ball up for grabs when you're in the clutches of a defender on first down.

Did it ever occur to you that maybe he was just trying to get the fuck rid of the ball or legally ground it so that the clock would stop?

Am I the only one who remembers multiple NFL teams picking up 4th and 18 or longer? It's a hell of a lot easier than scoring a touchdown when the other team has first and goal because of a sack/fumble or a boneheaded pick.

He threw a 2 yard checkdown to a double covered tight end that wasn't really all that close to out of bounds...

At least Cassel can improvise with his legs...Brodie showed me all I needed to see right there...he doesn't really CARE about winning...he cares about not pissing off Haley and not getting killed. His confidence is shattered...

Why anyone is even talking about Brodie Croyle is ridiculous...typical, pessimistic, KC Chiefs idiocracy fueled by our beloved columnist Jason Whitlock...who is apparently ridiculously good at his job...

I mean, we knew Hamas and Mecca were going to jump on Cassel as soon as possible...but great, now we have the whole local and national media looking at Brodie's box scores (and 30 yards of 1st half offense!!!!) and trying to create controversy when it's just not going to happen.

You lay out your contention that Brodie's "mistake" was the worst thing any QB could do, ever. I precede to give you about 10-15 instances of far worse transgressions, some from the very same fucking game you were commenting on, and I'm the one who doesn't make points?

If you want to talk about a QB panicking because they don't know the situation, then why don't you replay the last play of the first half on Sunday, genious, because the very same thing that you are calling out Croyle for (which by virtue of him doing, afforded the Chiefs an extra down), you excuse Cassel for, even though it directly took any chance for points off the board, and happened precisely because he didn't know what the fuck was going on, and because he panicked due to a waft of pressure.

Dude even if Cassel is awful he will be run out there for atleast 4 years, New England is still running Maroney out there. The people who make these decisions have egos and don't like to admit they fucked up.

It'll turn into "well he just needs this this this and this" and nothing will ever be his fault.

To be fair Cassel has never won a game with the Chiefs either, I know I know he won 10 last year for the Pats last year.

Cassel may become the only QB in history to take over a 16-0 team, lead them for 15 games and go 11-5, only to take over a 0-1 team and take them to 0-15.

Only the Chiefs.

Billay, this is the Gods honest truth from me; it's not the bashing of Cassel, it's the bashing of the reality and fact that the yin/yang of the Chiefs as a team and as a whole is severely out of whack.
You can see it on the field, and if you're perceptive to the whole, you can feel it in your gut as well.



At best, set back for a little longer.

At worst, that's the crux, and we've entered in to an even BIGGER miasma cluster-**** than what came before now.



I was shocked when Bowe pulled that slop-bucket in. I'm glad Haley has made Dewayne his pet project.


The team sucks did anyone expect Cassel to play great coming of a knee injury throwing to a WR they just signed 5 days before the game?

He can't stay healthy...he IS NEVER going to be a franchise QB...he's a lost cause.

Plain and simple.

He did not PLAY GOOD against the Ravens...by any means...I don't care what the box score says...he threw a TD after a great play by Derrick Johnson...and he led a drive against a prevent "I dare you to" Ravens defense who made a mockery of our "offense" for 50+ minutes until we finally did something...

I don't care that they lost the game, I care that he made a couple of bonehead rookie mistakes.

He'll fail! Arrowhead stadium will burn down its all over. 1 game in which the team with no talent and the QB with a sprained knee puts up 400 yards. FAIL



How can you defend his decision making, against the fucking Raiders of all teams he'll play.

Seriously I hope Cassel is good I don't want the team to blow, but at the same time I do not want this double standard defense.

Numerous people said he was a better option than Sanchez because of experience not being a rookie etc etc etc, so when he fucks up don't tell me he's inexperienced you can't play both sides.

I agree completely.

The two interceptions and the check-down were inexcusable.

I want Cassel to be good too. But let's be serious here, or you can be frank, or whoever. You'd much rather be right than any of the other options. Don't be coy.

I dont know since 3rd down conversations are your hot button, he has been great at that this year. And more than half have been over 10 yards.

I think he might have a little better supporting cast...but hey, what do I know?

Either way...I'm sure of Sanchez was starting right now Whitlock would still be writing the same columns blah blah blah blah blah...

Or it would be like..."see we knew he didn't have enough college experience!"

So predictable.

Lets play "guess the week 3 headlines!" after we lose @ philly against a far superior team in another "hostile" environment.

He also put the team ahead with 1 minute left but you left that out of your argument too.
