Oh noes....we are tied 10-10....

Oh noes....our pre-season playcalling is for shit....

Oh noes....Charles didn't get enough carries.....

Oh noes...our front 7 sucks......



I thought we looked pretty good. Better than we did last week. Front 7 played good, we got burned on a missed tackle by a DB.....that isn't the front 7's fault

Charles still averaging about 5 yards a carry. Bowe with a 10 yard average. And Cassel with 125 yards after going 14 for 19 with a touch.

Could be worse, I guess.

While there's still room for improvement for everybody involved, the showing was a little better, although it is Tampa, who most people wildly believe that they will be the worst team in the 2010-2011 season.

I haven't seen it, and won't be able to until Monday, but yours is one of the few opinions here I trust, so...

Was there improvement this week, or was it just the same level of suck against a lessor opponent, making it look like improvement?

I know this was not asked of me but I can't help myself.

Maybe both. Our run defense looked great with our starters. We moved the ball on offense. First drive got cut short on a Jones fumble that resulted in 3pts. We came back and scored a TD off a nice drive. If Flowers makes a tackle Tampa probably never gets their TD but he went high when he should have went low and we had a blitz on. Result was a 53 yard TD. We came back to tie it at the half, obviously.


Pass protection was much better. Defense was getting good pressure even with a 4 man rush. Carr still needs some work. Arena is the real ****ing deal on KR's, I will say that now.

The biggest error that I saw was clock management at the end of the half. Why did we give away a down by spiking the ball when we had a timeout? That drives me insane. We wound up ending the half with plenty of time, but it was 4th and 1. Sure would have been nice to have used the timeout and had a 3rd and 1 instead.

Agreed but when it comes to pre-seaons and the way coaches think I wouldn't be surprise if there was some logic that doesn't make since to us fans behind it all.

There were 38 seconds left, and we still had a timeout too. Not a wise decision there.

I'll need to watch this game Monday on the NFL network instead of on a shitty computer, but I disagree completely with the idea that the Chiefs looked "great" on offense or defense.

Arenas set up the first touchdown and gave the Chiefs a VERY short field in which to score. After that, they couldn't do shit. The defense hardly pressured Tampa Bay's SECOND string QB and from what I could tell, Cadillac Williams barely played.

The Bucs passing game consistently carved up the Chiefs defense for big chunks in the first half. Mike Williams was catching everything in sight (including burning Flowers for a huge TD) but also on crossing and sideline patterns. Michael Clayton chipped in for a few nice passes and there was little to no pressure on Josh Johnson. In the few cases there was pressure Johnson either took off for a big gainer or step up into the pocket to make his throws.

Johnson is a second year, 5th rounder that made the Chiefs defense look as bad as normal. Keep in mind, this is a Tampa team that won three fucking games last year and the Chiefs starters and backups failed to beat the Bucs starters and backups.

IMO, it was fucking pathetic.

Well, shickingly we are in disagreement. They hardly carved us up in the 1st half. They had about 20 yards or so more than us passing in the 1st half and 50+ of their yards came on a missed tackle. So I don't know where you got all of these big gainers from? We outrushed them and held the ball longer than them and that was with a turnover.

And yes, Arenas did set up a short field. So what? That's what he is there to do. And we capitalized on it like we should have by putting 7 on the board. We set up a short field for them when Jones fumbled and we held them to 3.

Cassel goes 14-19 for 125 and a TD in the 1st half and people bitch.

Charles carried for about a 5 yard average and people bitch.

Bowe had a 10yd average and people bitch.

We hold them to 10 pts, 3 of which came off a turnover and 7 from a missed tackle and people bitch.

There was hardly anything to gripe about in the 1st half except Flowers making an ill-advised attempt at a high tackle.

We fumbled in our own territory, and our defense held them to a field goal. Other than that, we have up one big play which turned into a long TD reception. 10 total points given up in the first half.

Matt Cassel completes 70+% of his passes for 125 yards, 1 TD, and 0 INTs for a rating of 108.

Conservative but that is just how this offense is going to be. And that is fine with me as long as we move the ball. It eats time off the clock and keeps the legs of the defense fresh.

That's a big if, IMO.

When defenses don't have to worry about anything thrown more than 10 yards in the air, it makes their job much easier.

Add in the gameplanning of the regular season, and we could be in some trouble if we can't stretch the field a bit.

Hopefully we can just run the ball and not have to worry about Cassel and his lack of downfield accuracy.

He dink and dunked his way to 125 yards, a TD, and no pics in one half of play.

Tom Brady had one season of 3800+ passing yards in his career prior to Randy Moss joining the team. He had no seasons of a 93 or higher QB rating prior to Randy Moss. He did, however, win three rings.

I'm not saying that Cassel is a star by any means, but people here would be sucking Brady's balls if he played the same game that Cassel just did. He's made a career out of playing that exact same game.

See two posts above yours.

If you're naive enough to think that this will work for 16 games in the regular season, be my guest.

And if you've lowered you're expectations so much that 10 points in 2 quarters against a piss-poor defense is a good showing, so be it.

I'll watch on Monday/Tuesday and come to my own conclusions, but it sounds like much of the same, only against a lessor opponent.

Cassel has shown NO ability, IMO, to even be an average QB. Take a look at the Seattle-Green Bay game that's on right now. Charlie Whitehurst is a leader, knows how to improvise and is obviously a player (for $4 million a year, no less).

Cassel is Grbac part 2 with Gannon's arm strength.

And the defense looks as bad as advertised. When second year QB and a 4th round rookie WR consistently carve up your first team defense, you've got problems.

The passing game regressed when Charles took over, IIRC.

And it has nothing to do with "getting bent." It has everything to do with having realistic expectations once the bullets actually start flying for real.

You can't be one-dimensional in this league when you have a limited amount of talent.

Tell an NFL defense they only have to defend a box 10 yards deep, sideline to sideline, and even the worst will lick their chops.

I think 10 points in just under 4 quarters of work from the 1's speaks for itself.

How many times was Mike Williams open and how many times did the ball go there? It was a consistent theme of the first half.

You're comparing a guy that has won 3 Super Bowl rings, and had a better completion percentage from 11-20 yards last year than Cassel did overall - to a preseason performance against one of the worst defenses in the league - and only scoring 10 points to boot?

You might want to look in the mirror if you're looking for flawed logic.

Charles tore it up against Atlanta. Charles tore it up tonight for the limited time he has been in both games. You guys are all shitting your pants over games that are called so differently from the regular season.

So to answer your question, you know what you get when a defense does that like that did to us last year? JC going for over 1,000 yards in about 1/2 a season.

Really, some of you guys are just funny as hell with this stuff. I am not saying we are SB bound bound but come on. It is pre-season and we are still a developing team.

I saw people bitching about Tyson Jackson on a play where he didn't fall for the bootleg and ran the QB out of bounds. The QB gained a few yards but how many lineman are going to run down a mobile QB from behind? Yet people still found room to bitch about the play.

You actually just made a great for argument. Chambers/Bowe sure aren't Randy Moss.

Matt Cassel couldn't even consistently throw it down the field when he had Moss the best deep ball receiver to ever play the game...this issue is his.

What should Cassel's line have been? He threw one ball away on a busted play, and he spiked the ball once to stop the clock. Other than that, he had 3 incompletions in the half. What should his numbers have been?

He had a very solid stat line. This isn't arguable, IMO.

But let me give you a microcosm for why I think he's yet another worthless sack of shit in a long line of worthless sacks of shit that we've had at the QB position:

3rd and about 7. Time in the pocket. No heavy pressure. Cassel shits himself and literally runs into a sack instead of staying strong in the pocket.

This is the anti Trent Green. That sumbitch was impervious to danger in the pocket. Not surprisingly, who lit up Cassel for his stupidity?

All of this goes back to my claim that Cassel possesses modest talent (at best) and extremely limited football instincts. And you're not going to teach or develop the latter at the professional level.

That has more to do with the decline of their defense, but even when he wasn't throwing bombs, he still threw it more vertically than Cassel does.

I'm not asking Cassel to drop in 50 yarders on a dime, I'm asking him to be a solid intermediate passer that moves the sticks, Brady was that.

You're comparing a guy that has won 3 Super Bowl rings, and had a better completion percentage from 11-20 yards last year than Cassel did overall - to a preseason performance against one of the worst defenses in the league - and only scoring 10 points to boot?

You might want to look in the mirror if you're looking for flawed logic.

Tom Brady has no problem throwing the ball downfield.

You guys are right, going by the logic some of you are trying to apply:

Atl sucks, they only scored 10 pts at home against NE
PHI sucks, they only scored 9 pts
CAR and NYJ suck cause 12 points were scored in total in that game

Which part confuses you? He won a Superbowl and a Superbowl MVP in a season where his running back threw for as many postseason TDs as he did.

You're confusing a "deep threat" for throwing downfield.

There's an area you seem to be ignoring that's anywhere from 10-30 yards past the LOS.

You're not getting this, at all.

Charlie Weis designed the Stink & Stunk for Cassel because that's all he's capable of doing successfully. He can't throw the ball accurately down the field and he's incapable of putting a team on his shoulders and marching them down the field.

If you limit his throws to 8 yards or less, he's fine. Anything more than that and your risking interceptions and worse.

The problem with that philosophy and that type of player is that a decent defense will load up to stop those plays, probably by the second quarter. And if your QB can't stretch the field, they'll just load up eight men in the box and stop the run.

It's a no-win situation.

OTW I guess what we look for in a QB is different. Cassel was able to move the offense, for once he actually looked like he was in control. He changed a few calls at the line, didn't hold the ball as much, threw sharpe passes. I was very please with Cassel tonight.

Look it, guys, this is a Marty-ball team as far as being a possesion team. We are not going to be the Vermeil Chiefs. We are going to dink, dunk, take what the defense gives us and run the ball. And hopefully play good defense.

Special teams are going to be a significant part in the success of the team this year. I think with the addition of Arenas and faster players on special teams, coupled with Colquitt and Succop our average field position will be much better this year on both sides of the ball and hopefull that translates into better perfomance on both sides of the ball.

His completion percentage is lower, and he turned the ball over. He threw for a few more yards (on more attempts), and he threw a pic. It's a solid game, but I'll take fewer yards and one less touchdown in trade for a pic.

As far as missing the point goes, I'm pretty sure that's you. Of course you'll take a game where the QB averaged more yards per attempt than any QB has ever averaged for an entire NFL season. It's like saying that you'd accept a game from a baseball player who homered or a soccer player who scored a goal. It means nothing.

He has nearly 100 more yards on the same number of completions...when you are actually throwing down the field it generally leads to a lower completion percentage unless your QB is a freak of nature.

One thing we obviously are going to see more of this year we saw little of last year is the play action pass.


Look it, guys, this is a Marty-ball team as far as being a possesion team. We are not going to be the Vermeil Chiefs. We are going to dink, dunk, take what the defense gives us and run the ball. And hopefully play good defense.

Special teams are going to be a significant part in the success of the team this year. I think with the addition of Arenas and faster players on special teams, coupled with Colquitt and Succop our average field position will be much better this year on both sides of the ball and hopefull that translates into better perfomance on both sides of the ball.

And there's where you're missing the boat.

That phrase is usually used in conjunction with a team that has some downfield ability. Opposing defenses are concerned about giving up the big play, so they allow the soft stuff underneath.

That won't be the case with this offense.

If defenses are smart, they'll keep all 11 players within a 15 yard box, knowing we don't have a QB that can make them pay for playing tight to the LOS.

Brady DOESN'T do the same thing.

Brady has shown he's capable of throwing the deep ball, and it keeps defenses honest.

Not to mention that Brady can actually complete a respectable amount of passes over 10 yards, something Cassel cannot.

I've said I haven't seen the game, and won't until Monday or Tuesday.

But leading a team to 10 points against one of the worst defenses in the league doesn't inspire confidence regardless of the stat line, IMO.

So he "looked good" completing passes under 10 yards.

Shouldn't EVERY QB look good doing that?

This is the ****ing big leagues, FFS.

Brady threw all of 6 passes more for 20+ yards than Cassel did last year and with 100 more attempts.

Brady threw all of 4 more for 40+ yards than Cassel did last year, again with an even 100 more attempts.


Sorry, I misspoke, he had he had 72 more attempts

He threw a pick against a better defense.

He also threw for another TD, and the ability to get the ball downfield gives you a better chance to succeed in the short passing game, not only to complete those passes, but to give your play makers the opportunity to turn little passes into big plays.

If you can't stretch the field, defenses can just pack everything in close.

You're a fucking idiot. Once more, since you obviously can't read:

I'll need to watch this game Monday on the NFL network instead of on a shitty computer, but I disagree completely with the idea that the Chiefs looked "great" on offense or defense.

Arenas set up the first touchdown and gave the Chiefs a VERY short field in which to score. After that, they couldn't do shit. The defense hardly pressured Tampa Bay's SECOND string QB and from what I could tell, Cadillac Williams barely played.

The Bucs passing game consistently carved up the Chiefs defense for big chunks in the first half. Mike Williams was catching everything in sight (including burning Flowers for a huge TD) but also on crossing and sideline patterns. Michael Clayton chipped in for a few nice passes and there was little to no pressure on Josh Johnson. In the few cases there was pressure Johnson either took off for a big gainer or step up into the pocket to make his throws.

Johnson is a second year, 5th rounder that made the Chiefs defense look as bad as normal. Keep in mind, this is a Tampa team that won three fucking games last year and the Chiefs starters and backups failed to beat the Bucs starters and backups.

IMO, it was fucking pathetic.

Maybe you'll take a season like what Jay Cutler had last year where he threw for 27 TDS and 26 INTs, but that doesn't interest me. Cassel threw 1 TD and no INTs in one half of play. That's just about perfect.

No, but I'd take a two to one ratio.

Matt Cassel should have to do this drill everyday...wonder how long it would take him to get it...

Cassel could spend his entire life trying that and not succeed.

And on a side note, have you seen that "vanilla" offense that GB has been running in the PS?

It is if you threw away points on offense and gave the other team points of their own because of the INT. Go ahead and drool over Jay Cutler's 2009 highlights. He threw a bunch of TDs. The Bears must have been pretty good. Certainly better than if they had a guy who only threw 1 TD in a half with no INTs.

Were you talking about goalposts with other posters? And now you're using Jay Cutler?

How do Whitehurst's numbers translate to 1-1? His are 2-1 so if you're going to point to Cutlers numbers than Whitehurst's would be 28-14.

Do we have to point out to you that Cassel actually regressed even when the O-Line and the running game improved, again.

I am not saying he didn't. He struggled last year and I am not a Cassel fan. But I also am not so unobjective to realize some intangibles that went against him as well as the entire offense...

1. It was a new system for him going into camp
2. It was an even newer system going into the regular season
3. He got little help from his 0-line
4. He got little help from his WR's

That takes a toll on anyone save a Favre type


I remember Trent Green's first year here and everyone was cursing him cause he sucked.

I am not a Cassel fan, but he is the QB and I hope to see improvment this year with it being his 2nd year.

But he only lead the 1 scoring drive in the half so you'd probably have to mix that with some rushing TD's lowering the total. If you were being realistic about it anyway.

10 points against one of the shittiest defenses in the league is "great?"

Wow, some of you have lowered your expectations to ridiculous levels.

I didn't say that the offense as a whole was great. I said that 1 TD, no INTs, 125 yards passing, 80% completions, and a QB rating = Matt Cassel played great.

I don't care what team you pull for, if God himself offers your coach before a game that your QB will throw 2 TDs, no INTs, 250 yards, complete 80% of his passes, and have a rating of 108, the coach will take it 100 times out of 100. When your QB is Matt Cassel, you take it 200 times out of 100.

2 TD's a game is not going to win many games.

3 players threw for as many as 2 TDs a game (32 for a season) last season. Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, and Drew Brees threw for 33, 33, and 34 respectively. They led the 3 best teams in the NFL last year.

Then that couch won't be coaching for long with those expectations.

Every QB in the league should be able to duplicate that when they refuse to throw the ball more than 10 yards in the air.

Giving Cassel credit for something this basic would be like giving an Olympic diver perfect 10's for doing a swan dive. Or giving a gymnast a 10 for doing a somersault.

What he's doing isn't difficult for even a shitty NFL QB.

But go ahead and enjoy those lowered expectations.

New system? Haley and Weis both run the Erhardt/Perkins system. Same terminology, same everything.

Now, the way the call the game may be different but it's not a new system by any stretch.

And regardless, he's a professional athlete being paid $15 million a year. He played a USC for four years and backed up Brady for another three years.

Making excuses for him is just plain fucking dumb.
