Chiefs notes: Haley likes passing game after all; Pollard’s revenge (http://www.kansascity.com/2010/10/14/2315810/chiefs-notes-haley-likes-passing.html)

Good passing game after all

Coach Todd Haley amended his statement from the previous day that he wasn’t sure the Chiefs could count on their passing game when they needed it.

The Chiefs couldn’t manage an offensive touchdown in their two road games this season. They settled for three field goals in their first loss of the season last week against Indianapolis.

“I’ve seen enough from our group to think it will be there when needed,” Haley said. “Last week, you could make the argument it wasn’t.

“We’ve shown signs of being real good at times. The second half of the Cleveland game; the entire San Francisco game, really, once we got a couple of series in. There’s been other times due to circumstances that you could make an argument that we haven’t been good enough.”

The Chiefs are 27th in the NFL in passing yards, averaging 158 in their four games.

Bernard Pollard’s revenge

On Sunday, the Chiefs will play for the first time against Houston’s Bernard Pollard, released by Kansas City at the end of the preseason last year. Pollard was quickly signed by the Texans and as their starter at strong safety has been a big part of an improved run defense.

Pollard was a starter throughout training camp last year, but the Chiefs dumped him any way, suggesting Pollard’s loud and sometimes abrasive personality may have had something to do with the move.

“That was one of those tough, tough decisions, mainly because I thought a lot of Bernard from the minute I got in here,” Haley said. “I felt like we established a relationship pretty quickly. He was one of those guys that was in here working and he was passionate …

“Some of those decisions are a lot harder than others, and Bernard fell into that category of (being) harder than others. It was not an easy decision.”

Injury report

Both teams reported progress on their injury reports, but the Chiefs remained in far better shape with regard to physical ailments.

Punter Dustin Colquitt returned to practice as a full participant one day after missing the workout because of an illness. Defensive end Tyson Jackson (knee) and offensive tackle Ryan O’Callaghan (groin) were again full participants; safety Reshard Langford (ankle) did not practice.

The number of Texans not participating fell from nine to eight, but on that list were, among others, defensive end Mario Williams (shoulder), guard Mike Brisiel (knee) and punt returner Jacoby Jones (calf).

Among the limited participants for Houston: linebackers Brian Cushing (knee) and DeMeco Ryans (groin), tight end Owen Daniel (hamstring) and wide receiver Andre Johnson.

Pollard (neck) and running back Arian Foster (knee) were listed as full participants.

Haley is backtracking because Scott Pioli's wonder boy may get his feelings hurt.

Cushing will be well prepared for Cassel to be staring down Moeaki and I wouldnt be one bit surprised to see him get a pick as a result.

If Brian Bitchtits Cushing gets a pick I will give you all of my Casino Kash (not that it amounts to much and you will need to talk me through the Kash giving process).

ROFL MAN, Todd is getting GREAT at keeping his "hand" hidden whilst towing the Peeholi Company Line!

Ah...expect even more and greater detachment from our Coach's true feelings...:)

No no, my friend! You do not hate, you simply hope and pray that he doesn't fuck up or disappoint, or cost us the game. Then, the inevitable letdown isn't so bad when it comes!:thumb:

I'm a tough but fair Sponsor, PZ. The last CA member who backslid on me found himself bursting through a storefront window like Superman.
That said, I believe you are up to the challenges ahead, and I will guide you through the steps if you truly want my help.

Oh thank you ROR. I will listen to your teachings. Now first I must ask. Today is my first week going in "not caring" for Cassel. While watching on TV, is there a limit to how many times I use obsenities? What I mean to say is, can a swear word become obsolete if I use it too much? See "suck".

Baby steps, PZ. At this stage of your recovery, embracing Cassel descriptors that are familiar-yet new to your conversion is a healthy practice.
However, like any form of life that seeks to survive, YOU must grow as well.
Think of Matt Cassel's suckage as an opportunity to expand your vocabulary in the coming weeks.
Imagine each offensive series as a turn at the classic board game, "Scrabble". You have only so many letters at your disposal, but you can build off of other Cassel Anonymous member's work as well; it's group recovery at it's finest!
You'll be screaming "Monkey Fucking Retard"(!!!) at the TV in no time! You'll get there PZ, even if I have to drag you like that little homo-hobbit "Frodo" all the way up the mountain of Cassel's FAIL, just like that other "Hommit", Gamgee.

Now, go and prepare yourself for today's battle. Eat, Drink, and Be Merry, for the death of Chiefs Football in the hands of Shat Cassholi AWAITS US ALL!!!!
