The guy just got cut for Ryan Fitzpatrick. I'd rather have Derek Anderson than Trent Edwards.

Yeah, but we'd have to carry him on the roster.

I could give a rip about a 3rd QB. If you reach that point and aren't the Steelers, you're pretty much f'd.

Yeah because it's not like Kyle Orton is 2nd in the NFL in yards, 1st in the NFL in 20 yard pass plays, 3rd in yards per attempt, 8th in completion percentage, and 7th in QB Rating.

I expected to lose against the Colts and we would have beaten the Jaguars if it wasn't for the fumbles and stupid penalties we had. Denver's toughest part of the schedule is early in the season and it is pretty much a cakewalk after week 6. Hopefully we will be 3-3 heading into week 7 and then finish the season 11-5 or 10-6.

You really should temper that enthusiasm a bit... I'd love to see the 10 or 11 games you think they'll win. I think 8 is about as realistic as I can get at this point, maybe 9... but that would mean they have to beat Houston, TN and the Jets according to my thoughts on another thread. I could see 1 or 2, but not all 3.

Honestly, feel free to expect 11 wins every year, but the track record isn't there over the last 4-6 seasons and I cling to that kind of stuff until proven otherwise.

McDaniels really screwed up yesterday by not taking 3 points at the 9 minute mark and going for it on 4th down... it's stupid things like that which really irritate me and show me he has a lot to learn about winning - just take your points, give your team a mental boost and try to win the game.

Down 7 vs Indy with 9 minutes left, they've struggled to punch it in at least 2 times previously... why go for it on 4th there? Put in the most tatt'ed kicker in league history, take your 3 - make it a 4 point game and kickoff.

For the record, I thought Orton showed he's taken a step up the ladder in becoming a better QB. His pass to Lloyd for a TD was nice. Now run along, we're celebrating a win. ;)

Von Dumbass

I've always said that Orton wasn't the problem... The Broncos had 4 drives of 11+ plays and they got 3 points (I believe) off all 4 drives. They had the TD reversed b/c of the knee touching, but my gosh ... 4 plays at the Indy 1 and they don't punch it in on that drive.

A ton of missed opportunities from yesterday...

McDaniels doesn't have the skins on the wall to do that type of thing and then walk away without taking heat... 4 drives of 11+ plays each and 3 points. You take your points in a game like that, with that much time and you hope your defense can get you the ball back without letting Indy score.

Orton wasn't having any problems marching them down the field... they just couldn't score and you just can't fix that in a week.

This is a legitimate question (not trying to :Poke: or anything). Didn't Denver have a lot of trouble scoring last year too? Seems like your offense was ranked very highly in total yards, but pretty mediocre in total points. Or maybe that was back when Cutler was still around.

Back to the topic at hand. Edwards is a starting NFL QB with a 14-18 record. He has attempted 878 passes and completed 535 for a 61% completion rate. Total passing yardage is 5739 yards, with 25 TD's and 27 INT's. His career rating is right at 77.

And he could be picked up by a waiver claim if the Rams, Lions, Buc's, and Skins pass. It's not often you can get a starting QB off of the waiver wire, but this time you can. :shrug:

And I am not talking about taking over for Cassel, but Edwards could upgrade the QB position. And the brass has said anytime we can upgrade the roster, they would do so.

yeah and usually squirrley white kickers with the initials of L and E usually are 80 percent on less than 50 yard field goals.

Until KC, Dick Vermeil coached franchises were 100% to have a SB appearance during his tenure.

Sometimes the stats don't apply do they?

Here is one that i believe in. Matt Cassel is 100% fail.

09-27-2010, 12:20 PM
I doubt he'll be picked up off waivers, unless he's making less than average starting money. Nobody wants to pick up a back-up QB and pay them as a starter. I predict the Cardinals make a play for him, but in FA.

This is a bye week for KC, but as I look down the road.... (and I give all AFCW teams a split in these projections - just by rule, it tends to happen more often than not, so I always say the home team wins)

The bolds represent 7 losses that I realistically see... I think KC will win those 5 home games. So, with the unexpected 3-0 start... KC could very conceivably hit the 9 win mark with ease... 10 isn't out of the question, but we all know the NFL... you are going to win and lose games that you shouldn't, so it's going to be interesting.

Gee, that would apply, if that shitty kicker was still here. Since, he ISN'T, it makes your point irrelevant. I was just letting you know, that your team CHOKED HARD and are showing the SAME TENDENCIES. I know you want to vent, but bagging on the Chiefs when your team sucks shit is laughable.

Last year, they scored fewer than 20 points in 8 games... this year, I think they're having some of the same problems, but it's more frustrating because through 3 games - Orton and the offense are so much better than they were overall in the first 3 games of 2009.

Orton has a lot more options now, they're spreading it around and yet they get stuck in mud in the redzone... THIS is where the coach and his lack of creativity come into play.

I think we all know the Chiefs could still take a nose-dive, but their fundamentals are sound and I think we could get hot at the right time. Never-the-less, I'm excited by their play thus far. Improvement is obvious.

Luck is going to be terrible. He threw 2 INT's against Notre Dame.
Mallett sux. He folded against Alabama.
Locker looked like crap againt the Huskers.
And on-and-on.

I'm not saying Edwards is the second comming of Joe Montana. But he does have 32 career starts and has won some ballgames for a pretty crappy Bills team.

And I can not believe I am going to type this, but what happens if Cassel gets injured. Croyle and then Palko. Just not seeing Palko as a viable backup for this team with promise if something should happen to Cassel.
