Five things to watch in Saturday’s Chiefs-Bucs exhibition game (http://www.kansascity.com/2010/08/20/2164164/five-things-to-watch-in-saturdays.html)

1 The emphasis put on Jamaal Charles and Dexter McCluster. It became increasingly clear in last week’s exhibition loss at Atlanta that the Chiefs’ offense will center on running back Charles and the playmaking ability of McCluster. A stagnant and ineffective offense looked revived when they handled the football, and that’s the kind of energy the Chiefs need as they try to learn how to win. The games don’t count this time of year, but the Chiefs need some confidence; Charles and McCluster offer plenty of things to feel good about.

2 Dwayne Bowe’s attitude and performance. The Chiefs’ fourth-year wide receiver didn’t get a catch last week, and that has to change tonight. Bowe’s success in 2010 is critical to how the Chiefs offense will perform, and it’s time to see how the beleaguered receiver translates his impressive training camp to a game environment. Bowe has looked terrific the last three-plus weeks, but the team won’t know how much they can really count on Bowe until he shows he’s capable of solidifying the Chiefs’ offense in a game, exhibition or not.

3 The defense’s reaction to last week’s struggles. The Chiefs’ worries on defense were, at least for the short term, confirmed last week when Atlanta had no trouble gaining yards against the front seven. The Falcons’ running backs consistently gashed the Chiefs for moderate gains, and that won’t do much good for the confidence of a young and unproven defense. Coach Todd Haley said he was pleased that coordinator Romeo Crennel’s unit cut down on the big plays that plagued the Chiefs last year, but there’s still plenty of room to grow.

4 The secondary’s continued growth. Most eyes might have been on first-round safety Eric Berry last week in his hometown, but the attention should shift this week to his counterpart, rookie free safety Kendrick Lewis. Lewis made a statement through training camp that he deserves to start ahead of veteran Jon McGraw, and if he keeps it up, Lewis will accomplish that goal when the Chiefs start the regular season next month. Third-year cornerback Brandon Carr also seems to have corrected himself after a slow start in camp.

5 Ryan Succop’s reaction to last week’s misses. The Chiefs’ second-year kicker missed a pair of 53-yard field goals against Atlanta, and although it’s unreasonable to expect any kicker to be consistent from such a distance, coaches have to be careful to make certain Succop has opportunities tonight to recover any bruised confidence from a week ago. Succop is a self-assured kicker, and it was a good sign that he had no trouble with the 20-yarder he made in the second quarter last week.

The first thing I want to see is us getting a first down. Then continue to get first downs and score a TOUCHDOWN> FIRST before the other team. If we can do that, then we would show major improvement. If not then we are stuck in neutral & trying to get in gear with a bad clutch rolling backwards down hill.

I got 2 tickets on Ebay yesterday for 37.00 total for tongight game. I don't know what the face value is for Bucs tickets, but that seems pretty cheap considering that the seats are in the third row of the lower level on the 10 yard line. Hopefully this game is more entertaining that last weeks game.

To your first point, Jackson will probably be Jeremy Trueblood's bitch by the time he's done.

To Lokey, I'd like to see him get some first team snaps.
He doesn't have ideal size, but he's younger, more athletic and more active than Edwards, and got some nice penetration on a couple of plays against the Falcons.

Five things to watch in Saturday’s Chiefs-Bucs exhibition game (http://www.kansascity.com/2010/08/20/2164164/five-things-to-watch-in-saturdays.html)

1 The emphasis put on Jamaal Charles and Dexter McCluster. It became increasingly clear in last week’s exhibition loss at Atlanta that the Chiefs’ offense will center on running back Charles and the playmaking ability of McCluster. A stagnant and ineffective offense looked revived when they handled the football, and that’s the kind of energy the Chiefs need as they try to learn how to win. The games don’t count this time of year, but the Chiefs need some confidence; Charles and McCluster offer plenty of things to feel good about.Maybe it's just me, but I'd say you probably shouldn't treat the gameplan from the first preseason game like it's the blueprint for the season. They always seem to emphasize something different in each of these games, running and short routes one week, play action the next week, et cetera. Hell, Weis even mentioned during the week that they hadn't gameplanned Bowe into the scheme against Atlanta. Something tells me that won't be the case when the games count. Not that they won't be getting touches to Charles and McCluster, of course.

Although maybe in a way that is indicative of the regular season: odds are they'll focus on doing different things every week.

As far as the defense goes, the thing that surprised me the most was how often, at least for the second series and beyond, they seemed to be in the Falcons backfield on passing downs. I was a little encouraged by that. It obviously didn't translate into any sacks, but I thought the pressure was there and I think it's reflected in Atlanta's qbs' numbers (15-29 for 144). We'll see if it carries over.

In the end, the thing that still concerned me the most was the starting offensive line and their Olé! swinging-gate pass protection.

It was mentioned before, but it bears repeating, the Chiefs should look better because the Bucs are bad.

Now, with that said, what I am looking for:

#1) First down passes. I assume/hope that the ridiculously conservative playcalling last week was largely due to the fact that it is the first preseason game. The reality is that the best down to pass on is first down.... and it isn't like we have a road grading offensive line that will help churn out a minimum of three yards every down.

#2) I am looking to see the rookie TE, the new "Tony" to stretch the middle of the field and give the WR's more room to work.

#3) I think that Cassel has a chance to greatly improve his passing numbers. I think that the Chiefs could get a lot of RAC yards with the middle of the field being stretched. However, I would like to see Cassel hit on the deep out. I wouldn't mind seeing him taking big shots downfield, but it is a lot easier to hit a go route than a deep out. I would really like to see no more than three completions on shallow crossing routes, thought I expect this to be a bigger part of it tonight and most of the year.

#4) I would like to see Ron Edwards hold the point better. I still think that Dorsey would be the best NT that the Chiefs have. He has the strength, feet, and with his shorter height, will maintain leverage better.... but I digress. And, I know that I am not of the popular opinion on this.

#5) I would like to see TJ not look 75 years old.

Starts and ends with Cassel with me. A good performance would be appreciated, but I would still need to see a good performance carried forward for a few more consecutive weeks before I jump on the bandwagon. (From what I hear, there are many good seats still available on that wagon, so I am not concerned about waiting to purchase one.)

Another lousy performance out of Cassel... :shake:

That will be time to cue up the QB controversy issue that has been lurking around backstage.

There has to be another option to start a controversy, though. We were so scared of hurting Cassel's feelings that we ensured that we're 100 percent dependent on his improvement.

People have romanticized Croyle because he's the backup, when the reality is that even without his injuries, he's not an NFL starting quarterback. He's a guy with a relatively big arm that makes a shit ton of stupid mistakes.

But, hey, he's not Cassel, so it's love!

Reality is that if Cassel doesn't take a step forward this year, we're done at QB. And by "done" I mean completely fucked. There's not a Kurt Warner waiting in the wings to take over.

Can we win the battles on offensive and defense in the trenches. Protect Cassel and open holes for our RB's? Put pressure on opposing QB's on regular downs without blitzing DB's/S's?

2) Can Cassel complete some longer passes (semi related to 1)?

3) Arenas -- lets see some explosions by him again

4) LB's - Batted balls / big hits and lets see them flying around (crossing fingers).

5) 1st downs - Lets just see if our 1st team can make some 1st downs and move the ball against their 1st team. Please god.

I think it's far more important to get McCluster used to his role in the offense, for example. Who gives a shit if it's on tape. Give defensive coordinators one more thing to have to plan for, and it's not like they don't have a pretty good idea how he's going to be used to begin with.

Another thing for you Arenas homers pay attention to his lack of closing speed when the ball is thrown his way.

I'll take a look tonight but from what I've already seen he's not as slow as you WANT him to be.

So, either way they lose. They play well....but, but, but it was Tampa. They don't...they are teh suck.

If the improvement is "marginal," as I mentioned, then, yes, that won't be too encouraging.

If they play well, then the improvement will be more than marginal.

If they play poorly, then the improvement will be marginal.

Thre's a big gap between where this team looked to be last week and playing well.

This is a good way of putting it.

I want to see Cassel do something other than a dump off pass and I want to see him do it successfully.

I know what you are saying, but a good performance against any team in this league would be a welcome site. This is a bottom tier team until they prove otherwise. Sometimes you have to "slay a hood rat" to get the mojo going.

Yeah, and the Bucs are that chubby chick with the lazy eye sitting at the end of the bar at 2 am waiting to be plowed :eek:

I really think you guys are underestimating the Bucs, at least offensively.

Expect screen passes to Jamaall & Dexter, a bunch this season.
