Dane's an asshole. He makes it difficult to hang here. I got to think there are better things to do then listen to some nuttless squirrel try to make his mark on a chief’s message board.

Then leave.

But I'm sure you're both right: Jon Baldwin deserves three full years to prove that he belongs in the NFL.

This. Some guys just need the feel of being part of the offense. When they don't get fed the ball makes it harder for them to consentrate when they do get the ball. I'm not saying this is the case tonight, no excuse for Baldwin to fumble it, but got to go back to him just to help with his confedence & be abel to redeem himself. Got to feed the playmakers the ball. Dwayne Bowe is the same way got to keep them from feeling left out there on an island by themselves. That is the life of a WR. That also what you want is a guy who can progress during the game and get it rolling. I think that is on the QB to help guys build that confidence in them. Should have gone right back too him for that opportunity.

This is awful logic when the team is built the way it is. You cant have guys like Baldwin get upset when they dont "get theirs." We dont have Aaron Rodgers that can distribute it to 4 or 5 WRs at any given time. That is why the pick is basically not what fits the current team. You need players like Breaston that can compliment Bowe. Not guys like Baldwin and McCluster that expect to get their touches over better talent like Charles, Hillis, etc in the run game.

I dont think he is ready to go against the leagues #1 corners quite yet, but that he can beat #2 corners enough to be productive.

Once Bowe gets back into the lineup and other teams dont look at Baldwin as a focal point, he will be able to get some man up looks on guys that are 5-6 inches shorter than him, arent as fast and arent even close to as athletic.

Ill keep saying this...if Baldwin didnt break his hand in a locker room fight with Jones (who has had that problem almost everywhere he has played) he would have probably takenn our offense to another level last year and I think the same holds true this year for the kid.

If Cassel can continue to develop and improve...the skill position players on this team can begin to flourish at some point THIS YEAR.

Is it just me, or does it seem plausible that "the game has slowed down" for Matt Cassel?

Tonight's game was basically a team that came in way over confident against a team that had a major chip on its shoulder from last week's blowout. Chiefs thought they would walk in to St. Louis and roll the Rams like they did Arizona last week. Rams came out and knocked us in the mouth right off the bat and they didn't react until the second quarter. Starters started to get in the flow and by halftime they were playing pretty well. Regular season we probably turn it on in the second half and cruise to victory. Cassel played well for just dinking it down the field most of the night. I swear he is like somebody who has sports cars in the garage but drives around on the bicycle in the yard because its safer. Oh well, its nice to see him play well now for the idiots like Pioli and Pawnmower to yap it up now until we meet a legit playoff team and he shits himself. Life of a Chief fan. Stanzi played tonight like Cassel did against the Ravens. Holy shit, he fucked himself. Oh well, 5th round picks don't win Super Bowls so no biggie in the scheme of things. Rams played like they wanted it more tonight, thats pretty much the bottom line tonight. Atlanta game can't come soon enough.

Dude knows more about this team than most here and isnt afraid to voice his opinion as loud as he wants.

FYI if you keep it cival with him and ask for his reasoning on his opinions, he will usually offer them up and more times than not, they might just change your own opinion.

He may be a worthless piece of shit, but unfortunately he is the best piece of shit we have for 2012.

Maybe Daboll is to Cassel as Harbaugh is to Alex Smith.

I dont think its out of the realm of possibility to think this team can have a similar type of year as last years 49ers had if thats the case.

Then I would say that falls on the QB for not being good like Aaron Rogers lol.

I'd say your right, but I like to watch guys get "theirs" just to prove that they can be productive when they get it. If not then they are worthless to the team other than the big body for blocking is a big plus for Baldwin.

Any one notice McCluster trying to throw a block on a LB when we were down at the goal line? It was good effort, it was kind of funny, not a great block but he seemed to make the guy turn away from the ball carrier.

One thing is absolutely certain.

This team needs it veterans and young veterans to step up this year ACROSS THE BOARD and this game should have been a HUGE wake up call to show how much more work they need to do if they want to be able to step up and play with the big boys.

Love the people that are all up on Cassel's bag. He's like a con man. He has this style that leaves a box score making him look like a pro bowl QB, but its like he makes plays with absolutely no regard to what impact it has on the teams actual chances of winning. He's whoring QB rating at the expense of an offense that can actually compete with playoff caliber teams. Need 9 yards for the first down? Box score says Matty completed it (for 7). Down by 14? Matty went on a 12-14 streak (for a FG and the team lost by 18).

Buckle your seatbelts football fans. Matty is gonna take us on another Pro Bowl season ride. Yes, we'll get embarrassed by the true competitors of the league, but we may fall assbackwards into the playoffs by winning the worst division in the NFL. And boy oh boy, look at Matty's stat line.

Brilliant post.

This is why I am fucking obsessed with nitpicking every mistake he makes.

Chiefs Nation needs to hear it so every time he fucks up, they have a mental library of what a shithead he is.

Bravo, sir. You are fighting the good fight.

Dexter McCluster is kicking big time ass out there and is arguably our best receiver

He had 3 catches for 23 yards because he is a useless bastard who can't get open past 10 yards (unless the coverage is completely blown via play action like last week)

Honestly dude, go fuck yourself until you wake up about DMC.

I've rehashed this several times already. He was a horrible pick. We could have had Rob Gronkowski, Nate Allen, TJ Ward, Koa Misi, Lamarr Houston, Toby Gerhart, Carlos Dunlap or Brandon Spikes.

All those guys are much better players than DMC at this point, and I'd still argue that Arellious Benn and Golden Tate will be far better wide receivers, since they can actually do stuff down the field.

Dex is a #4 WR who catches dumpoff passes. He's a fucking worthless dreadlocked hobbit, and I don't give a shit about his bullshit stats from last season.

My hatred for Cassel is well documented on here and the coalition (when I posted there) as I hated the idea of making a move for him since months before it was indeed done.

That doesn't mean I'm gonna ignore obvious signs of improvement in the guys game.

His arm is visably stronger
His accuracy is noticeably better
He still needs more improvement, but his poise is better than I can remember it. He seems to keep his eyes on the receivers more than in years past...but that doesn't mean he didn't stare at the rush a couple times.
Somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 of his passes were intermediate throws that were on the money.

I don't expect the guy to become Aaron Rogers...but I do expect him to continue to improve because he is billed as a guy with a really good work ethic.

I was a fan of Haley and hate Cassel...doesn't mean I will ignore his improvement just to try and appear "right"

There very well could be truth to the reports that Haley just didn't "click" with Cassel and Daboll does.

For this team to have a chance at a real run, that MUST be true.

Like I said...hopefully, Daboll is to Cassel what Harbaugh was to Alex Smith.

No, he is a guy that has looked like our best receiver so far in 2012 and last year as a rb he averaged 4.5 yards per carry.

If I were you, I would look at what Daboll did with Reggie Bush and how DMC has improved under him (so far) and temper my hate for this player before he puts clown shoes on you.

Remember all the points I made last year about DMC with Orton as the qb?

If Cassel keeps throwing the ball on intermediate routes like he has been, thats gonna open up the area DMC and the TEs work in.

Toby Gerhart is an excellent complementary RB.

Carlos Dunlap has 14 sacks in two years and is a starter on a nasty defense.

Brandon Spikes is also a starting ILB.

If this were the regular season, you might have a point. But since Steve Breaston is, by far, the most accomplished receiver on the roster at this point, giving other receivers a look isn't a bad idea.

So, you'd rather the Chiefs spend the #36 overall on Gerhart instead of getting Hillis on the cheap in FA?

Carlos Dunlap has 14 sacks in two years and is a starter on a nasty defense.

And Houston was a better bargain with just as much upside.

Brandon Spikes is also a starting ILB.

With the same pass coverage ability as Belcher.


Most of those players I listed are solid starters.

They aren't a better fit for the Chiefs. To say that McCluster hasn't been solid, especially when he's had 3 TD's from receiving and rushing and more than 1,000 yards combined, is ludicrous.

What's ludicrous is defending McCluster at all.

He's a shitty #4 WR.

Yeah, that's better than an actual playmaker like Toby Gerhart...or a pretty nice pass rusher like Carlos Dunlap...or a beast TE like Gronkowski.

To say those players are worse than a guy who averaged 7 yards a catch tonight is hilarious. To bring up his pathetic rushing stats in defense of him is even more hilarious.

The McCluster pick just gets worse and worse. And yet people on this board think he's our best receiver. WHAT?

He'll probably get 10 snaps a game when Bowe is back.

TOTALLY WORTH THAT PICK NOW, HUH?

BossChief
08-19-2012, 01:40 AM
1) 6 passes that went for more than 10 yards in a half a game is improvement from Matt. I'll take that as an average from him for the year, if that's the case.

2) McCluster had more yards than Breaston last year. Also, I think it's funnyyou throw out that Dexter had 850 yards last year, but use Breastons 1 season he had 1006 yards as some arguing point. Dexters 850 are MORE yards than ANY YEAR Breaston had with exception of that one 1006 yard season.

So far, Daboll has Dexter above Breaston and before you try to claim it's because of some "Pioli is trying to save face for a bad pick herp"...realize that Pioli gave Breaston a mid level free agent deal with about 10 million in guarantees. Awfully silly to think he wouldnt want that guy to play because he is forcing Daboll to move DMC up the depth chart.

What's ludicrous is defending McCluster at all.

He's a shitty #4 WR.

Yeah, that's better than an actual playmaker like Toby Gerhart...or a pretty nice pass rusher like Carlos Dunlap...or a beast TE like Gronkowski.

To say those players are worse than a guy who averaged 7 yards a catch tonight is hilarious. To bring up his pathetic rushing stats in defense of him is even more hilarious.

The McCluster pick just gets worse and worse. And yet people on this board think he's our best receiver. WHAT?

He'll probably get 10 snaps a game when Bowe is back.

TOTALLY WORTH THAT PICK NOW, HUH?

You're a fucking dumbass.

You're going to tell me that he wasn't a better selection than 27 other picks in Round Two of the 2010 draft? Seriously?

1) 6 passes that went for more than 10 yards in a half a game is improvement from Matt. I'll take that as an average from him for the year, if that's the case.

What?

He didn't throw the ball past 10 yards.

The players who caught his shitty short throw did all the work.

Wake up.


2) McCluster had more yards than Breaston last year.

Yeah, OK. Fuck you. Dexter will get 10 snaps a game this year as the #4 WR. Watch.


So far, Daboll has Dexter above Breaston


So far, you're being incredibly ignorant. Steve Breaston started the fucking game tonight. He's the #2. So, you're wrong.

I've already identified at least 5 players (closer to 10) who offer a lot more value.

It's not hard to offer more value than a #4 WR who lacks playmaking ability, let's be honest.

It's not hard at all.

I am really anxious to see what Baldwin can do once the ball's in his hands. I'll most certainly give him a pass tonight but I'd like to see him make that catch in the future.

Sure. But when u only get two targets and one is a shitty low percentage pass at the end of the half, i think its unfair to dog him. Hell get his time to shine and i think hell take it. Its a pitty however that the best part of his gsme is being a deep threat and we have a qb who struggles to pass past 15 yards..

Bullshit.

How many games did Dunlap win on his own? How many games did Misi win on his own? How many games has Gerhart won on his own?

Without McCluster, this team would have been sitting home in the playoffs his rookie season. Add that to his contributions at any position he's been asked to play, and I'd say he's been a pretty integral part of the Chiefs the past two seasons. And I expect that role to grow this year.

You know how many catches the #4 WR is worth in a Matt Cassel/Brian Daboll offense?

About 15, maybe 20.

Go look it up. Look up the history of #4 wide receivers in Matt Cassel offenses.

THEY DON'T DO SHIT.

And since Dex is a worthless receiver who has zero ability past 10 yards (unless he's open by 10 yards, which isn't going to happen often), he'll do less than shit.

This is an instance of Clay trying to grow as a poster by trying to stick to his guns and not flip flop and to a degree, I can respect that.

The thing is....Dexter is looking like a guy that will play A LOT more than he thinks and being he is quickly earning the trust of Cassel, will also get his share of passes thrown in his direction.

Like I've said a few times before, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see DMC gain MORE yards this year with LESS touches.

The guy is very quick in and out of his cuts and now runs routes that are very detail oriented.

It's gonna be hard for linebackers to cover him one on one when we shift and motion him around to FORCE teams into those situations.

All in all I think this was a good reality check after last week. I don't think our defense is as bad as it looked at the beginning of the game however after last week maybe they thought they could just walk out there and the Rams would fold.

Baldwin disappointed me with the fumble.

Defense got shredded on the opening drive

I'll cut the defense a little slack on the 2nd drive since the Rams did have a short field

JC looked very good
Hilis looked very good
Boss looked very good
Cassel looked very good

Bannon looked like ass
Stanzi looked like ass
The Refs looked like ass

Jc and hillis are good. Line, not horrible. Watched the game live and Baldwin was wide open down the field multiple times. Cashole didn't even try once. I am saying helen Keller would have better vision. I just decided to get completely off the casshole bandwagon. Not that I had more than a foot before....

Quinn has the best arm. That may be all I need to get on his bandwagon. But I'd like to see him with the starters.

Stanzi isn't ready to be a starter. Sorry. I saw glimpses of damon huard fetal flaws.

The announcer at the dome sounded like norm mcdonald.

Poe has a long way to go.

Flowers, I hope your just being precautious. Or heal fast.

Boss over moeaki. Heard it here first.

Can we ever learn to cover a fucking tight end? Ever?

Fisher had the rams better prepared than RC had the chiefs prepared.

Deboll gets too cute with playcalling when things start to go bad. Mixed feelings.

Dustin will punt his way to our MVP again.

Replacement refs blow.

08-19-2012, 01:57 AM
Also, Dexter is solidifying his place on this team as the slot receiver with every catch...might as well stop calling him a #4 receiver at this point...until, you know, he actually is one.

We talked about this at the game. I agree the d got gashed, but I also don't think the d playcalling was anything more than vanilla either. No blitz packages. Just safe regular calls. Don't know if that was planned or if I missed something.

Positives:

Charles looked like he trusts the knee and that he hasnt lost his explosion, vision or strength in his runs. Definitely a good sign.

Cassel looked like he is trying to take the next step in his development (sad that at 30 that is even an issue) by trying to push the ball more on intermediate routes. His arm looks visibly stronger and his accuracy seems to have improved...as does his poise, albeit not by leaps and bounds.

Playcalling is much better on offense. I know, I know preseason blah blah...but the plays are in on time and most of the time have been effective.

Hillis looks to be ready for another 2010 year...dude reminds me of a more talented Mike Alstott...hopefully he continues to secure the ball and isnt careless with it in crucial situations like he was in 2010...if he does, our running backs will be in beast mode.

Jerrell Powe looks to be a guy that should probably get some sub package work and is probably deserving of more than that. He is seemingly disruptive on a lot of plays he is in for and if this team is gonna blitz more and use man coverage as much as they are, he can be an asset in a "Jay Ratliff" type role as a penetrating nose when we blitz.

Allen looked to be in beast mode and should be promoted immediately to starting left guard.

Dexter McCluster is kicking big time ass out there and is arguably our best receiver (until Bowe gets his back into the swing of things. He is getting consistent separation and is catching almost everything thrown his way. If he keeps it up, he will provide a valuable weapon to this offense.

Kevin Boss is looking like a stud pickup more and more aqnd should allow our offense to use he and Moeaki similarly to how Gronk/Hernandez get used in NE. Really good value signing.

Dontari Poe is already starting to flash, if you look close enough. He is splitting doubles and beating blocks regularly and had a couple pressures tonight. They need to put him at the3 nose and keep him there...LIKE THEY SAID THEY WERE GONNA DO.

The negatives:

Stanzi looked like hot garbage. No redeemable features were on display tonight. Just a poor showing.

Dorsey/Torbino/Jackson all looked like ass. Not sure what was up tonight with them, but they all looked soft.

The whole secondary...even Berry looked bad tonight and whats really bad is that the Rams have one of the weakest receiving cores in the league and we couldnt even slow them down.

Did I mention Stanzi?...biggest opportunity of his life to show something and he really played poorly.

Bailey...where the **** was he?

Albert has a rough game, too...gave up a couple pressures and a sack iirc. Its a shame...I figured he would be looking very impressive this time of the year in a contract year.

Baldwin...another of "my guys" that underachieved tonight...although I think a large part of that is because he is a guy you just need to throw a few passes a game to him and let him go get it and these guys arent doing that for the kid....they need to show some confidence in him by making it a point to do that.

I hope Romeo turns it up a couple notches in practice this week to get the starters some good work before next week...thats the game that these guys need to be almost ready to line up in a regular season game and if we look out of rythem...that will almost undoubtedly carryover into the regular season.

This team has a lot of work to do to start to realize their potential and if we dont get it going pretty fast, Clay is gonna end up looking like a genius at the end of the year.

I agree.

This is true. The problems is, based on what we've seen from Cassel in his first 3 years, the short passing game is 95% of his game. It's not like he throws short when the defense is spread and goes deep when the D plays up. He just throws short high percentage passes almost exclusively. It stunts the entire offense.


As for McSpinmove, Clay won't have to worry about him for much longer. Every defense in the league is going to know that Matty Pro Bowl does nothing but throw short crossing patterns to him and its only a matter of time before a safety or LB finds Dex stretched out for an off target throw. He's going to get blown up.

Love the people that are all up on Cassel's bag. He's like a con man. He has this style that leaves a box score making him look like a pro bowl QB, but its like he makes plays with absolutely no regard to what impact it has on the teams actual chances of winning. He's whoring QB rating at the expense of an offense that can actually compete with playoff caliber teams. Need 9 yards for the first down? Box score says Matty completed it (for 7). Down by 14? Matty went on a 12-14 streak (for a FG and the team lost by 18).

Buckle your seatbelts football fans. Matty is gonna take us on another Pro Bowl season ride. Yes, we'll get embarrassed by the true competitors of the league, but we may fall assbackwards into the playoffs by winning the worst division in the NFL. And boy oh boy, look at Matty's stat line.

This pretty much sums it up.

The friend I took to the game last night said something similar after a dumpoff to Charles:

"This is going to be our offense this year - 1 yard pass to [insert player here] and hope they pick up 6 yards."

Yup... Right now, our season teeters on the health of DMC... We have no room at all for injury... The Raiders are going in the right direction and will compete this year very well but this won't be our year I will predict atleast 8-8 though. Carson is a good QB but he is not a good QB for the offense we are running now, that rollout stuff is not a Carson strength.. I am not particularly impressed with the offensive scheme so far with the exception of DMC.. Front 4 on D will be impressive though.. DVD getting roasted by scrubs don't make me happy either... But what the hell, just like the economy... Over Spend and you will eventually have to pay the piper.... we are going to have to do that now I guess.

I am not comparing speed, but rather comparing styles.

As you pointed out, McFadden is a more punishing runner, so he's not using that speed with the same effectiveness that Charles uses his.

That is, of course, the product of their size difference, but's it relevant to the issue.

Charles is stronger than most give him credit, but he doesn't seek out contact the same way that McFadden does.

I don't worry too much about the preseason but I'll say this,

Yesterday's game gave us an indication of how important Flowers is to the Chiefs football team. The Rams did the smart thing by attacking Flowers replacement.

They exposed the team weakness really well. I also think Belcher is a big liability in coverage. I wouldn't be surprised come season time that teams decide to attack in his area.

Competition at QB isn't even close. There just is none. I'm trying to figure whether Stanzi has a long ways to go or if he just isn't that good? Quinn forget about it. Im not gonna place my hopes in him.

BossChiefs take on the game 100 posts or so ago was probably the closest to what I took out of it.

And I will throw in a couple of additional thoughts to that.

For better or worse, it appears we are going to have the 2010 Matt Cassel.

Game one featured the run over the pass, and went into the win column. (first half)

Game two featured the pass over the run, and went into the loss column. (first half)

And the MO for the passing game for both games followed much along the Charlie Wies plan... which makes sense.

You're correct - it's not close. That was the plan from the get go though we were told otherwise. Quin is clearly # 2. Wish we had a # 2 that was better but we don't. Stanzi doesn't belong in the NFL.

The bigger weakness is the non existent pass rush. The DL is the weak link of the defense. Has been for years, which is why the Chiefs can look great on defense one week and next get run all over. The Rams had no problems running the ball up the middle at will. Their # 1 OL totally dominated our #1 DL. Until the Chiefs get a solid DL, the up and down play will continue. This is the reason why I couldn't understand how all off season some kept saying how awesome our defense is / was. It's only gonna be as good as the DL will let it be.

You don't move a RB that you believe is a productive RB to WR.

That 4.5 YPC is a mirage.

Handoffs on passing downs, when the defense doesn't care if the RB gains 6 or 7 yards.

For every rushing attempt he had in a worthless situation, he had one where we ran him up the middle in short yardage.

Those cancel each other out IMO.

Look, was it a good pick at 36? Probably not.

Has Dexter shown year to year improvement? Absolutely.

His routes this preaseason have been great.

Not good, GREAT.

He is getting separation on nearly every route he runs and will help us win games this year.

I am not a QB coach or anything but what is disturbing about the 2 pictures above is it seems as though Cassel has completely locked onto either 1 side of the field or 1 player being #80 as he is running the crossing route.

In the first picture it looks like Cassel is waiting for #80 to get open and see which way the LB is going. Is he covering #80 or #22. If Cassel is following #80 with his eyes and the LB can read that then there is no reason to follow #22

What is more disturbing is who is at the 48 yard line and wide open?

If it's leading to first downs and points I don't give a shit. When Bowe gets back he's going to fuck defenses up.

I just don't understand how the hell people (aka Clayton) keep bashing Cassel for this performance?

13/18, 142 yards, 8 yard average per completion, 4/6 on 3rd down all with his WR fumbling and his OT ruining a drive with 2 straight penalties.

Yes Cassel has been bad the past 3 years, but the way he's playing right now is encouraging.

He plays like he did in 2010 and we win the division.

Because nobody is interested in repeating 2010. We want a team that can consistently be a super bowl contender. We don't want a team that has to build around the qbs weaknesses. We want a team that acts as a support group to the qbs many strengths.

The fear is that the chiefs win the division in unimpressive fashion, lose in the playoffs, but this team becomes further disillusioned that cassel is the answer. We'd be a lot less pessimistic if it didn't seem like this front office as bending over backwards to stubbornly prove that cassel is our long term answer.

I think what bothers most people is that this supporting cast has become so good that a very good qb would make this offense downright unstoppable. Can you even imagine Aaron Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Peyton, Cam, cutler, Eli, big Ben, Stafford, Bradford, Schaub, Romo, or rivers operating in this offense? In a qb driven league, we have a guy who barely broke the top half of qbs. The fact that we still can be competitive with this kind of qb play only opens up the obvious statement that a top tier qb (not even an elite one) would overnight make this team go from being a playoff contender to a super bowl contender.

2010...

When we ran more than we passed we won 10 times. We also lost a game (Houston) where we ran more. (There may be more than this one, but I don't care to go back and look right now)

When we passed more than we ran, we lost.

2012...

First half under Cassel...

Game 1. Ran more times. Up at half... Won

Game 2. Passed more times. Down at half... Lost

If we run more times than we pass in 2012 then you may be correct. We just may win the division. Just like we did in 2010.

Fitzgerald had already been in the league for 4 years when Warner played his first full season as the starter in Arizona.

Wrong. Fitz drafted in 04. Warner signed in 05. Again, Fitz proved his rookie yr he was special and Warner was able to accelerate and expose his greatness from there on out with a little Leinert hiccup along the way. Baldwin does not have that luxury in a QB situation here but I believe he will have his great moments but they just won't be as often as we would like with Cassel at the helm.

We're gonna be primarily a running team. That's our identity with a QB like Cassel. If he's passing the ball more than 30 times then we're screwed. He's a game manager. Run the ball, play defense, don't make mistakes, check downs are ok, etc. That's the way it looks so far anyway. When Cassel has to throw the ball a lot even HE looks uncomfortable. I don't think he wants to be "the guy."

He did ?? Warner ? Don't get me wrong I believe Fitz would have gotten to that elite level eventually but my whole point is when you have HOF QB's to get your career off to a great start( a la Rice and Fitz) it makes it much easier to get to that Rice/Fitz level of play of which Baldwin DOES NOT have that luxury in Cassel and WHY it will take Baldwin longer IMHO. I along with many others here I believe he has the physical tools to get to that level but he also needs a top tier QB to utilize ALL of his abilities. And top tier QB is not defined as HOF caliber either. But Cassel is not even in the top 20 of this league at this point IMO.

According to the thing they did on Kurt Warner on NFL Network, Fitz was fine with being good and had no desire to be the best..Kurt pushed him to become the best

Not when Cassel was in. First half was 18 passes and 13 (?) rushes. (Not sure where sacks play into stats).

Pro-rated out, in a full game that is 36 passes and 26 runs. In the past, for the Chiefs that translates into a losss. For the elite QB's... not so much.

Again, this is not always the case. But it is the norm.

Fitzgerald has really missed Warner too. He just had, by far, one of his best seasons as a receiver last season averaging 17.6 ypc, compared to his previous best 14.9 with Warner in 08. One of his worst productive years came in 09, with Warner, when he averaged a measly 11.3 ypc, compared to his next worst 12.6 in 10.

Maybe. And maybe if the full game is played out with starters we comeback and win with Cassel throwing the ball more than we run it. That has happened before.

Bottom line is though, chances are when we throw it more than we run it, we are going to lose.

Bowe is gonna open the offense up if Cassel can distibute the ball effectively.

Barret's post (#436) is on the money. Cassel has minimal to no field vision. Imagine the receiver on top of Clay's photo being Bowe. It doesn't make a difference if Cassel is too bereft of peripheral vision to see him. Cassel's mind tends to lock on the receiver he wanted in the 1st place. If said receiver is covered he's screwed, and by extension, so are we.

I thought Romeo looked sad. He's been coaching a while and he's been in a lot of games. I think he was wondering if it was all worth it. The long hours. The time away from his family. His whole life was spent on a child's game. He wasn't changing his community through advanced medicine skills or using his leadership to change policies. He is getting old and I think he is starting to wonder for purpose in his life. I think that's why the team play soft. It could also be because of the TWA Dome. That doesn't spark the rugged individualism personality traits you need to have to succeed in football. I don't think any of these things are permanent.
