I was excited when we hired Pioli. I was apparently an idiot.

What could go wrong? A guy from the front office of the best team in the NFL... executive of the year... a couple Super-Bowl teams he helped build. How was this not a major upgrade over Carl?

Long story short... do you still believe Peeholey can build a winning team or not?

(I know some didn't believe it from the start... geniuses)

*not this shit again*

***why do you even try to start football threads***
****tl;dr**** Pioli

depends on what you mean by "winning team"

In Pioli's defense.. we currently have a VERY talented team that is young as hell. We are one lucky draft away from having no excuses on the talent side of things. (obviously that draft will need a legit QB prospect)

I liked the Pioli signing and still do. Give the man a chance. How many years did we put up with Carl before getting rid of him. Pioli has made some errors (Casshole, Haley, Jones, and Carr) but overall is moving us in the right direction.

A team that wins more than it losses. Playoffs would be a bonus. Super-Bowl... pfft. That's for other teams.

Seriously... a team that is an annual contender.

I'd like to be on board with you and I will be once we get a real QB. He has improved other positions. He's ignored the most important... or maybe more realistically... he's been blind to his own failure.

I feel I've given Pioli a chance, even through disagreeing with many key moves. If the Chiefs win a playoff game this year, that chance will be extended by one year.

Pioli has done a great job. On everything except the QB position, which is BY FAR the most important position on the field.

This. This is a win now league. Teams can change fates immediately. With the Chiefs being so far under the cap in the past there's been no excuse not to seriously upgrade at QB other than Pioli's stupid pride imo.

If they don't go deep into the playoffs this year then shit can him. How much time do you need to not spend the money you have?

Poll fail, not public.

I still think Pioli is going about this the right way, even if he is taking forever and a day. We have talent at every single position of need other than QB (and a little light on DB).

pimpchief
08-27-2012, 12:23 AM
I think pioli was the best guy out there. Its been a difficult few years to easily throw a team together. The lockout, new cba, lack of qb protects outside the top 5 picks, a poor 2009 draft pool altogether, lack of legitimate coaching prospects... Etc.

I think we make the playoffs this year, and probably atleast four of the next five years with some wins and maybe a superbowl.

Hindsight 20/20, I would have loved for KC to have picked up Dalton over Baldwin in the 2011 draft. I don't think they did because of Kasl's stats but hell, I was willing to give Kasl another shot in '11 based on the previous season.

I bet they thought they had 3 years to develop Stanzi and that kept them from pulling the trigger on a high rd QB. Kasl fucked us yet again.

Name one qb he could've had better than cassel since he's been here. Detroit was not passing on Stafford, we were not in a position to go qb early after cassel had a solid season, and iron and broke making are not better than cassel no matter what you say.

Wilson was 4 foot nothing and the Seahawks got Brady/brees lucky if he pans out.

First... Mark only made the probowl as an alternate to an alternate. Second... bad ass???

3,100 yards passing in a season and 27TD does not make a bad ass. He was another 1k yards and another 10TD shy before he got into bad ass territory. He was good and that is the kindest praise he deserves for 2010.

Um, you're trolling me. He went to the probowl and led us to the playoffs fur the first time in years. That's pretty badass. He threw 27 tds and barely any ints until haley started messing with the offense.

My dad works with the chiefs and he says 2010 was cassels team, not haleys. He's a proven leader, why draft Dalton?

He obviously took a step back and clashed with haley last year, so seating someone like foles would've been justified this year. Not in the 2011 draft though. The priority was finding another big receiving target. He did that. He earns his paycheck.

He also talks about not being able to make ti to a Chiefs game because his mom didn't take him... probably due to no gasoline. I'm guessing he is just young and Kasl's '10 season was the best he has seen a Chiefs QB play.

Pioli? Done a better than average job with most of the roster. Unfortunately, his biggest failings are at the most important positions. Everything is a waste until we get 1) a legit QB and 2) a legit Head Coach.

Overall, if I am Clark Hunt, I am willing to give Pioli a chance with another QB but that needs to happen asap. Pioli loses all support if the Chiefs walk away from the 2013 draft without a legit QB.

What about Arenas? Baldwin has been disappointing thus far. What about selecting a "solid" 3/4 de with the overall third pick in the entire draft? Would you have drafted Tyson Jackson with the first pick? Because we weren't that far off.

For being looked upon as a "Drafting Genius" he has only drafted 1 all pro. What true impact players has he drafted? Berry might be the only one. I hate to go back to King Carl but most of our impact players are from the previous regime. Flowers, Charles, Carr when he was here, Bowe, Tamba Hali (Though it did take some time for him to make an impact) and DJ. Flowers, Charles, Carr and Bowe made immediate all pro type impacts within their first 2-3 seasons.

He promised qb competition before the season started, well where is it? It is evident Pioli is going down with the ship, the ship that is Matt Cassel, Pioli then arrogantly defends his position on Cassel by providing no competition for him. Any good thing Pioli has done and he has done a few good things is overshadowed by the awful curse that is Matt Cassel.

I think ultimately Pioli's legacy in KC will be his inability to deviate from the Patriots. Cassel, Crennel, Daboll, draft picks trying to make the 3-4 work, etc.

He doesn't appear to be capable of doing anything other than trying to replicate what he had in NE as if it's a paint by numbers. That tunnel vision approach will be what ends his stint in KC.

Against the Cardinals and Rams? I think I could go out there and look good against those 2 NFC West losers. He played awful against Seattle, flat pass after flat pass it made me sick. What is going to happen when we run into teams like Baltimore? Is he going to dink and dunk to the flats? We just don't have a quarterback who can make reads and hit Wide Receivers. I think he had the worst completion percentage with throws more than 20 yards. You need big time plays to beat big time teams, and Cassel has never shown he is capable of that.

i still laugh at how fast fat Scott got outta the booth Friday night when Cassel started shitting his pants. :D

Pioli has built a fine team but his three major mistakes are holding it back. Cassel, Haley, Crennel.

If you can't pick solid at those positions of the team then the rest doesn't really mean anything.

I voted no. I've watched every fruit from the Belichick tree go forth and rot. Coaches, players, front office people, by and large (with a few exceptions) have crashed and burned without Darth Hoodie. He's doing okay with the glaring and fatal exception of quarterback. If he got off his lovefest with Cassel (or the fact that his own giant ego won't let him publicly admit failure), he might have a shot. If Cassel sucks balls in the first couple of games, and Pioli is still yammering about how Cassel's his guy, then Pioli is Dead Man Walking and he's the only one who won't see it.

Pioli is doing a fantastic job in my opinion. We have a ton of talent. We have no players over 30 and are the youngest team in the NFL. This means we are built to last. I would like a better QB but, I don't think we have had a realistic chance of getting someone better.

It takes Pioli years to address big problems. RT was a need when he took over the team 4 years ago, finally they get Winston. Good move, but years late, and there still isn't really any depth at tackle.

Secondary 'depth' has been a huge issue for years and still isn't addressed. It was a deep free agent class for safeties and Pioli/Clark sat on their money. It's inexcusable to do that when your two starting safeties are each coming off of injuries and you've been trotting Piscatelli out there the previous year. It's a passing league, draft a damn QB every year. It's a passing league, you have to be deep at corner - you overpay Carr mid year and extend him.

"WE" would have gotten rid of Carl a lot sooner if it were up to some of "US"

If Scott weren't so darn stubborn when it came to this whole Cassel thing
he would probably be pretty well liked right now. But since it IS the most important position/decision he could ever make....He is currently failing in my eyes.

Against the Cardinals and Rams? I think I could go out there and look good against those 2 NFC West losers. He played awful against Seattle, flat pass after flat pass it made me sick. What is going to happen when we run into teams like Baltimore? Is he going to dink and dunk to the flats? We just don't have a quarterback who can make reads and hit Wide Receivers. I think he had the worst completion percentage with throws more than 20 yards. You need big time plays to beat big time teams, and Cassel has never shown he is capable of that.

The foundation for those early years with Carl were players drafted by Jack Steadman.

DT was the one player he drafted that ws a part of that foundation.

Through the later years of those 9 seasons, it was teams that relied heavily on the free agent market to continue to compete.

Other than a couple of players, Carl's drafts were marginal, at best.

I think our incredible coaching staff in the 90's was a big reason for that talent. Look at Marty for crying out loud. He's one of the best coaches in NFL history at spotting talent. Even the Chargers are still living off of his draft picks and he's been gone for 6 years!

I agree with the majority of the members. QB has been an ongoing issue for a couple of seasons now and still has yet to be fixed. Pioli promised QB competition, so he brings in Tanney and Quinn? WTF? He's been settling for below mediocrity at the most important position in the NFL and it's going to cost him his job sooner or later.

I voted he can't do it. Simply because I know we won't draft a QB next year and Cassel is here to stay unless Hunt goes GM shopping. I truly believe that Pioli thinks Cassel is our QBOTF. He NEVER brought in competition, he brought in a scrub and a YouTube sensation QB. That's quite embarrassing. Bills have one the worst QB corps in the NFL and they didn't want Tanney. This should tell you something about Pioli's judgment on QBs.

Right. I've made that argument time and again over the years.

DT was the one player he drafted that ws a part of that foundation.

I disagree. Bringing in Mike Webster to help groom Grunhard was a good decision. Peterson also brought in Will Shields, Dave Szott, the aforementioned Derrick Thomas & Dave Szott, Dale Carter, Tony Gonzalez, Jerome Woods, Reggie Tongue and really hit it out of the park with Salemua, Joe Phillips, Marcus Allen, James Hasty and so on.

Through the later years of those 9 seasons, it was teams that relied heavily on the free agent market to continue to compete.

Well, they were in legitimate "Win Now" territory in 1993-1998. Even then, he brought in Woods, Tongue, Edwards and Gonzalez.

Other than a couple of players, Carl's drafts were marginal, at best.

I certainly agree that during the Vermeil era, the drafts were total ass. But I think that Carl did as much as any GM in the league could do from 1989-1998. He drafted two second round QB's, signed Krieg, traded for Montana, got Bono, Grbac and Gannon. The effort was certainly there. It just didn't end like we Chiefs fans had hoped.

Pioli, OTOH, has failed big time in the QB department and his first heading coaching hire (and assistant coaches to boot) were an epic disaster in his first season. Time will tell if Romeo can right the ship.

The thing is, the NFL has become SO quarterback-centric, just about ANY monkey could make this, or any other franchise, a "serious contender" with just one trade or draft pick.

Wow.... How quickly we forget. Remember what it was like when we had Huard, Croyle, and Thigpen as our QB? Pioli did upgrade the QB position. The thing is that franchise QBs don't grow on trees. They are hard to find. I wish he had brought in someone to compete this year but he didn't. However, it takes two to tango. Campbell quickly signed with Chicago, Garrard with Miami, and Orton's last words on his way tot he airport were "this is Matt's team."

It's true that the only QB he passed on that we could have definately gotten was Dalton. The thing is that Pioli wanted Dalton. He met with Dalton more than any draft prospect that season. He really liked the guy. I remember seeing a picture of the two of them together and they were both wearing Chuck Taylors :). I remember thinking this is a match made in heaven LOL. The thing is that Haley wanted a wide receiver and he wanted the guy from Pitt. He was a Pitt guy. In 2011, we upgraded the receiver position with Breaston and Baldwin for Haley. During the 2011 season, I think Pioli learned a valuable lesson about listening to you coach to much on personnel decisions. Dalton was in the argument for rookie of the year and Waters had the best season in his career. In KC, Lilja sucked after moving from RG to LG and Palko started some games at QB.

One of the biggest reasons Haley isn't here anymore is because he couldn't work with Cassel.

Another big reason was because his ego couldn't co-exist with offensive coordinators who COULD work with Cassel.

Yet we're expected to believe that drafting guys like Baldwin and surrounding Cassel with more weapons, in order to maximize his talent (or further mask his flaws), was Haley's idea?

I probably should have been more clear about that but this is indeed a football message board for one of the top 3 most tight lipped organizations in the league. Speculation is rampant here and on every other Chiefs message board. I'm having fun here and wanted to leave the Coalition. I appreciate the heads up when you feel I made a mistake and I will be more adament about clarifying opinion vs. fact and I apologize.

Pioli does have the final say on who to bring in. The coach has the final word on who to cut. It's the same way everywhere else. However, to suggest that the coach does not have major input is incorrect. It's why we have Copper and Breaston. It's why Leonard Pope is in Pittsburgh....

I don't care if you think my posts are gibberish but, don't be a pussy and say they are gibberish without explanation. Either ban the guy, ignore the guy, point out what's wrong and allow him to answer, or shut the **** up.

No running game to help Cassel in 2009 or 2011. It took forever in 2009 to put Charles in. He never put McClain at RB in 2011. He went with his boy Battle over McClain. He did nothing to help Cassel. He would have ****ed Orton up too.

I don't give a rat's ass how effectively you are running the ball.

At some point the QB has to convert 3rd downs, and Orton was far more effective at moving the chains than Matt Cassel has ever been.

He's a good guy to get you out of the gutter. Builds a solid team but can't take you all the way and you need to make a move to take that next step.

As long as he ties himself to Matt Cassel and refuses to draft QBs, that's exactly what he is.

If this team fails to make the playoffs this year, I don't know if he deserves to keep his job. 4 years, Matt Cassel, 2 coaches and ignoring the most important position in all sports is a fireable offense.

I agree. :toast:

He sucks at making the plays he has to make. He chokes and doesn't have an ounce of "clutch" in his veins. This is my biggest gripe about the guy. It can't be fixed and it's not something you can learn. You either have it or you don't. Orton is more likely to do it every now and again.

I get so sick of people talking about his pocket presence, his arm strength, and his accuracy. That's not the problem. The problem is he's missing the intanigibles up to this point. The ability to put it on his shoulders and carry the team. The abiltity to "will" wins.

Maybe he can grow in this area? I doubt it but maybe. Alex Smith did it last year. I was encouraged by the hurry drive the other night. If that had been a real game, we would have HAD to score on that drive to have any chance. He made the play when he had to and it was a good one. People laughed and made fun of his celebration but it was good to see him loose. He seems to have a **** it attitude and I think he realizes he can't be perfect.

All I know is that we have to get ahead of teams and hang on. That's our formula for success and I believe we have the weapons to do it. This was Green bay's formula in 2010. They never trailed in the playoffs and Rodgers is not good at coming back.

I also think he will be better with Daboll. The offense has been taylored to Cassel's strong points and he has the ability to change the plays.

He never got this with Haley. It's the same thing Big Ben is going through right now.

My hope lies in the fact that this roster is improved, and has the potential to be very good.

But make no mistake, even if everything else comes together, I have no hope that this team will find a way to the SB with Matt Cassel at QB.

He's 30 years old, 7 years in the league, 4 years as a starter.

I think ultimately Pioli's legacy in KC will be his inability to deviate from the Patriots. Cassel, Crennel, Daboll, draft picks trying to make the 3-4 work, etc.

He doesn't appear to be capable of doing anything other than trying to replicate what he had in NE as if it's a paint by numbers. That tunnel vision approach will be what ends his stint in KC.
or he could find a quality QB in the middle rounds and bring KC a perennial super bowl challenger type team.

Haley didn't know how to run effectively. Detroit and Green Bay were our 2nd and 3rd most rushing yard games after Indy. They were also the games McClain got touches. It's not always about getting yards. It's about running effectively like it was when Weiss ran with Jones. McClain is just an example of not using all the tools in the shed. He quit on him to early imo.

Check this out, we ran the ball 4 times in the first quarter against Buffalo last year. We ran it once in the second quarter and 18 times the entire game. Haley panicked and quit running the ball. He would always abandon the run quick when we got behind. Quicker than most coaches. He did this back in 2009 too. We were running the ball for 6 ypc. in that game. The highest YPC all year.

Before Friday, it wasn't bad. Like 7.8. Higher than Manning.

Friday's game was awful, though. Under 5, I think.

I'm not much of a stat guy and I think they are overrated most of the time.

However, I' the team had four drops and he forced the ball to Bowe on 3 out of 4 of the times he targeted him. That's seven passes where we were either fucking around or fucking up.

All of the drops in the 1st quarter were high throws.

Still catchable, yes, but not good throws.

YPA is not an overrated stat.

Haley didn't know how to run effectively. Detroit and Green Bay were our 2nd and 3rd most rushing yard games after Indy. They were also the games McClain got touches. It's not always about getting yards. It's about running effectively like it was when Weiss ran with Jones. McClain is just an example of not using all the tools in the shed. He quit on him to early imo.

Seriously, stop. You're making yourself dizzy.

3rd game he was 4.9ypa on 34 attempts.

It would be a lot higher if Moeaki could catch a ball and Baldwin could get separation.*






*And if Cassel didn't spend the entire first quarter throwing 3 feet high on every pass.

That first quarter was 50/50. Like I said before, all of those passes were too high but they were still catchable.

I get his point, even if he's muddling through it.

The one thing I liked about Charlie Weis, and I said this when he took the job in KC, is that he understood the value of the running game, and never abandoned it, even when the Pats were ineffective at running it.

His other point, that McClain was going to make some kind of difference, is without merit though.

The season he keeps pointing to when McLain ran for over 900 yards, he averaged roughly the same as Battle did last year.

McClain, like Battle, is just a mediocre RB.

He got nearly 1000 yards because he got a shit ton of carries.

The difference between 2010 and 2011, in terms of utilizing the running game, just doesn't exist. Here's the rush attemtps per game, by game (in which Cassel started), for both seasons:

2010 - 26, 26, 39, 27, 38, 42, 45, 34, 22, 29, 48, 39, 42, 40, 29

Yeah but, we had already signed Breaston who was a proven #2 WR. Also, he didn't fit the mold of the type of player Pioli had drafted in the past. He had been in some trouble with his former coach and acted like a Diva. It's even different Houston because he was busted for weed. His problems were off the field.

Also, we had taken two defensive guys in Pioli's first couple of years. I bet Haley was in his ear because of this. Most of us thought Phil Taylor or Gabe Carimi would help the most. We passed on both and when we moved back, Carimi was still there. I'm not an expert but taking Baldwin is not a Pioli like pick. The guy won three Superbowls with average talent WRs who had good hands. He tried to trade Bowe when he got to KC and Baldwin was practically he his clone. I think Pioli got sold on Baldwin. At that point, they were riding high off a playoff win and his trust for Haley was at an all time high.

When Baldwin came in and got in a fight with the team captain that didn't help Haley either. People don't like Jones but the PLAYERS elected him team captain two years in row. That's why he was at the top of the depth chart. I don't care about Jones but, I'm just saying it didn't look good on Haley.

Here's a couple of quotes on Baldwin by Haley.

"Once they realize they're no longer allowed to act like a diva, then we work well together," Haley said.


"I know we got a guy that cares about football that comes from a tough part of town in Pittsburgh that adds a little something to the mix on him. I think we have a guy that, as we go forward, I'm really excited about seeing him come into this team and be a part of what we're doing."

It's not just about the attempts. It's about running it successfully. It's about not running too many HB draws. It's about moving the ball forward and effectively running the ball. To see the whole picture you need to look back at 2009 and even his days in Arizona. Here's a small taste of what I mean...

It's about YPC and time of possession. Remember why we got Thomas Jones in the first place? Because we couldn't get a 3rd and inches with Haley. We were worst in the league at that.

It's not just the running game. It was the way he tried to force the ball down the field too often. We didn't have the QB or the WRs to do that. We aren't a speed based offense like Pittsburgh and our QB didn't have the arm.

Haley was unable to adapt and unwilling to change. We were immediately better when he left. Here's what I mean:

Time of Possession

2009 - KC Ranked 31st with Haley calling the plays

2010 - KC Ranked 16 with Weis calling the plays (pretty balanced)

2011 - KC Ranked 24th over the course of the entire season

2011 (last three games) - KC ranked 5th

I like Pioli. I think he works his ass off, and truly wants nothing more than to win. He's built a nice looking roster. However, the concerns I have about Pioli:

1) Has shown no ability to be able to evaluate the QB position better than the last regime
2) I have very little faith in his ability to hire a quality Head Coach
3) I question his ability to put together a team that can dominate the line of scrimmage (he's certainly tried via the draft, but Poe is a project, Jackson is average at best, and on the OL he stuck with Barry Richardson way too long and should not have had Wigemann there last year)

Unfortunately, these three issues are the biggest issues in my mind to building a championship team...

they way you bounce around shifting and dancing desperately trying to defend Haley is hilarious.

Crennel is a defensive guy ... that fact that he didn't make dramatic changes on the offensive side of the ball in mid-season is not surprising. Especially since Haley insisted on controlling much of the offense himself.

They basically fired the HC and OC with 3 games to go.

Your position that a DC should make major personnel changes on the offensive side of the ball with so few games to go is absurd. Just goes to show how desperate the "Haley is a victim" group as become.

McCluster was drafted in 2010 and put at WR by Weis

Weis gone, 2011 Haley used him almost exclusively at RB(even before injury to Charles)

2012 Dabol using DMC at WR

Many people (including myself) said the DMC had to succeed as a WR to make the 2nd round pick worth it. Haley didn't see it that way.

Because he was ****ing crazy. Melting down on the sideline and being a public embarrassment.

Remember, the fired him WITH CAUSE. Which means they had a much better reason to let him go than just "he wasn't getting it done".

Good point. I really hated the guy and he was missing some screws. However, it was more than just an embarrassment. It was about a lack of good judgement and the inability to adapt and overcome.

they way you bounce around shifting and dancing desperately trying to defend Haley is hilarious.

Defending Haley? ROFL

Classic deflection right there. I'm not defending Haley, I'm attacking Pioli. You know the guy that DESERVES the blame, the same guy that has a lot of Chiefs fans believing that Haley was the #1 problem with this team.

That's ok though. You can keep manufacturing this fake love affair I supposedly have with Haley and at the end of the season, when nothing has changed, maybe the fantasy of it all will make you feel better.

or he could find a quality QB in the middle rounds and bring KC a perennial super bowl challenger type team.

but don't like any positive thoughts get in your wayOf course he could.

I was stating my opinion as to how I believe it will play out. As for positive thoughts, I hope I'm wrong and Pioli gets into the HoF due to his contributions in KC.

I thought getting Pioli was a huge win for the Chiefs. He had been coveted by teams for years, and finally pulling him away from NE and landing him in KC was very encouraging. Not only did he select the Chiefs among many offers, it also felt like we won at getting the big name for once.

That being said, I just haven't seen a lot that makes me believe he's going to be overly successful. I thought we were getting a guy that would take all he learned about winning, and use it to build the Chiefs into a winner. Instead, it appears that he's just trying to clone a recipe, without having the right ingredients.

I'm not going to ignore my head and my gut to go around wearing my heart on my sleeve. Do I want the Chiefs to win under Pioli? Hell yes. This roster won't have the NFL lifespan to survive another GM or even another HC. Last year was the year it needed to come together. I'm sure injuries played a part, but this team has not played with any degree of consistency in the last 3 years. Until they come out and play like world beaters every game, it's just a talented roster that's treading water.

RAC benched Tyler Palko immediately. He could have done the same with Dex.

Apply the standards evenly or not at all.

Todd Haley is not the root of all evil.

RAC made Palko inactive immediately. It wasn't just a benching.

RAC and anyone with a brain knows how to use Dex correctly. Get him the ball in space. Muir used screen passes in those last games that show up on the stat sheet as run attempts. He also used wheel plays to get him the ball. Is a coincidence that he had 5 catches for 89 yards against Oakland after Haley left? Also, notice we aren't using as a RB anymore.

Todd Haley is......well....is not the root of all evil. ROFL That was hard for me. Pioli is a sociopath imo. He did bug Haley's office imo. I believe that. Sociopath's can drive you mad. They put you in situations where there is no way you can win. It's your word against their word and the lies and manipulations they use are unreal. They are so outlandish that you come off looking like a fool. I have personally seen it before and Haley probably got the shaft in this regard. It's not just the way he treated Haley. It's the way he has changed the entire organization. He is operating in total control and is probably getting off on it. That's the kind of thing sociopaths do. However, Pioli does appear to be moving us in the right direction and at the pro level, that is more important than anything else.

That said, Todd Haley wasn't doing a good job. He ran a bad training camp, a bad playcalling system, and his playcalling was not a match for the talent we had.

I can't even begin to count the number of times over the last three seasons that people commented how we were the worst team in the league at executing a screen.

Haley didn't fail to attempt to use McCluster on screens, they were just ineffective because defenses didn't respect Cassel's ability to go over the top.

You can't effectively screen if the defense is packed in to the LOS.

Pioli just needs to get beyond this notion that Matt Cassel is even an adequate NFL starter.

This. But his ego won't let him.

Screw Zorn while we're at it. He hasn't done crap for the development of Stanzi, Quinn or Cassel.

Screw Zorn while we're at it. He hasn't done crap for the development of Stanzi, Quinn or Cassel.I was just thinking this the other day. There are/were a lot of posters around here that had a very high opinion of Zorn that I never really understood. Even going so far as to suggest he should be OC. The guy has one decent year with Flacco on his resume. That's it.

Don't know why anyone thinks he's good, but I sure as hell haven't seen it.
