It’s not exactly family-friendly, but we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t point out that “Suck for Luck’’ campaigns are sprouting up all over the country. They are where downtrodden fans go to pine for their team to tank this season in order to select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the first overall pick next spring. The biggest bandwagons are in Miami, Indianapolis, Minnesota, Seattle, and, surprisingly, Kansas City.

It feels like just yesterday that former Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel was the toast of the town in Kansas City and the recipient of a six-year, $63-million contract. Now some fans want Cassel, coach Todd Haley, and general manager Scott Pioli out after the season. And they’ve even vowed to cheer the opponent to see it happen - especially in games against the Vikings, Colts, Dolphins, and Broncos, who could be rivals for the top pick. Cassel has four interceptions in two games after tossing seven all of last season. By the end of this season, Cassel will have collected about $40 million on his contract. He’s more cuttable in 2012, when his cap charge is $5.5 million, than in the final two years ($7.7 million and $9.2 million). “With any football team, you have to have a short memory, and you have to keep pushing forward, and that’s what this group is doing,’’ Cassel said.

We played way too well today. Keep starting Cassel. Keep Flowers out the next 3 weeks, and hell maybe even Baldwin. Must. Keep. Sucking.

We have two very dangerous weeks upcoming... Minnesota and Indy.

Suck for Luck is heading towards some turbulence these next two weeks.

However, I do have complete faith in Cassel to keep us on track for Suck for Luck.

When I watch the games I wonder if some of the fans even know football or they just got their tickets for free. I'm talking about the ones that have Cassel jerseys. Did they get them for free? Are they casual fans that don't know he sucks? Are they so drunk that they don't know they're wearing Cassel jerseys?

I don't like how they infer that because you want to draft Luck it equates to also wanting Haley and Pioli ran out of town. I think Pioli has done a good job and with all the injuries and having Cassel as QB, I believe Haley deserves another year.

If that's the case they better extend Haley's contract because players won't play for a lame duck head coach with one year remaining on his contract. IMO, Haley is done, especially after the season we're about to have. I know there's been injuries, etc, but the NFL doesn't wait. Pioli knows that. Pioli isn't innocent either, but Haley is about to take the fall.

He did pretty good against him, but Moeaki helped out on Mathis a lot.

Mathis is just the kind of player that has fucked Richardson up in the past.

The Albert/Jared Allen matchup should be good and very telling as to where both are 3 years after the trade.

We'll see. I won't exactly shed a tear if Haley is fired, but I think, given he's been hamstrung with Cassel, he may have another year or two. I don't know why, but my recollection is Haley signed a five year deal.

It would be Clark's pick to spark interest amongst the fans, it would be a bad business decision if they don't because they'll have a revolt on their hands.

Clark maybe a very mild football fan, but he's a businessman who looks at the bottom line concerning dollars and cents . The whole thing would be an executive order.

Why do you think he wouldn't?

Based on everything he's said here he's not into the big splash/fan favorite moves. He believes in slowly, conservatively, building a team.

When you make comments like he did after the draft this year about how he likes the position we're in and would like to draft a QB every year I don't think he's talking about in the top 5.

I don't think he feels the need to take a QB with a top 5 pick. He thinks can find one in the later rounds, and much cheaper, and would be better off trading down and getting more picks.

Most years I would agree. This year I think if KC is in position to get a top QB, and that's the QB we have rated the best, we should pull the trigger.

I just don't think he'll use that pick on a QB. Perhaps with the slotting and the money and contracts being easier to work out he'd be more likely...

Nobody knows what Pioli is thinking on draft day. Jackson was a surprise until a few days before the draft when it was leaked KC was interested in him. Tons of rumors that he wouldn't take a safety. Nobody saw Dex and Arenas coming in the 2nd round. The majority of people thought he'd go with Taylor (he should have) or Carimi this past draft.

Do you enjoy the current level of suckage put forth by the Chiefs?

:banghead:

Where did I say I was against a Franchise QB, when I have all along stated that I want any 1st round QB...

Luck, Foles, Moore, guy from Michigan St (name is slipping me). And your assumption that I am a bitch to Clark Hunt is fucking laughable at best.

You have some serious delusional issues that need resloved. Suck for Luck is fucking stupid and gay... And to root for injuries and losses just to prove your agenda right is even more stupid and gay...

Were you stunned when Pioli drafted a safety with the #5 overall pick? Half the people here predetermined the idea a pipe dream before the draft even took place. You just don't pass on a guy with game changing abilities when the opportunity's there.
