Oh, hey there Grbac. You can't block 'em and throw it, too.

We have to do a better job of staying ahead on downs, first and second down, creating positive plays and staying out of negative plays that create third and long situations. It's hard to convert on third and long in this league, especially when you have a good defensive line like they did today.

We knew coming in that we were going to have to handle their front. We did at times, and we didn't at other times. So we just have to become more consistent.

Listen to the rest. Not once did he accept personal responsibility. No mention of the Chiefs passing game.

"We, we, we."

Wank it to your stats tonight, Matty.

I don't see the problem. It shows great self awareness. Cassel knows he can't lead the team and carry them. He needs a running game and good OL. He's correct, for the offense to succeed the other players have to do better on 1st down and protect his ass. Without their help he can't do anything but check down on third and long.

I'm not sure I agree.

T Jax and Poe were both reaches. Dorsey excelled at 1 gap in college.

Albert was a great college guard moved to LT. Hudson was a great college guard moved to center. Lilja has been declining for several years. Asamoah was ass against the run last year too. Winston should be looking better.

Don't reach on DL, keep linemen them at their natural positions and be more proactive. Why is it that the fans can see areas that need to be addressed years before Pioli does something about it? RT was needed year 1, but it took Scott 4 years to address it.

Oh, no question they struggled mightily, especially in the middle against Dareus and Williams, which is to be expected when you are finesse against power.

But it still remains that your QB and the respect that team's have for him, or lack, has a big influence in your line's success.

I said DECENT.. not all world. There is enough talent to be decent, no matter how negative you are, you have to admit THAT.

Also, with a better scheme on D, our D-line should be able to perform much better.

I never once heard Trent Green mask the problem areas of this team onto "we." I heard him always accept responsibility himself. Hell, when the fucking commissioner cracked jokes about his piece of shit defense that deserved ALL the blame, he said, "No. The offense didn't score enough."

That was a true leader of the team.

Cassel is a fucktard pussy. A weak-spirited asshole. A fucking cancer.

The Bills flat out wanted it more today... Coaching staff did not have this team ready in any phase. Mario Williams said it after the game: "We went out there and put it all on the line.

The Chiefs had trouble finding the line today.That's everyone, but I blame Romeo and that staff of his. Ditto performance in all phases from week one.

Ok I've been quiet lately but a picture can say a thousand words.

The one where the lb is coming at cassel and he falls to the ground says it all for me. Great qbs stand in the pocket and deliver that pass. Not fall to the ground in a fetal position. I stood by Matt since he's gotten here. Last year at the sd game I finally saw who he was a prima Dona spoiled qb. It made me disgusted that he wouldn't stand up in the pocket and check off the first read. Then when he came to the sideline he would be yelling at everyone. I too have never heard him take responsibility for his screw ups. Great qbs do that too. I never thought I'd say this but I'm ashamed to call myself a chiefs fan watching this current team. The main problem is I also don't know how we can fix this mess but I'm done with cassel after what I've seen. That's just my two cents.

Has anyone noticed that the whole time Cassel has been here it seems that he never has the support of anyone but Scotty? Even on TD celebrations, no one is ever running up to him to celebrate. He always tries some high five that fails, or some gay ass leaping body bump that fails. I want a team that supports and is behind it's QB. Is that too much to ask?

Almost all the good teams in the NFL have a head coach and QB that are at the very least on the same page. With Cassel, I'm not even sure that Haley and/or Crennel WANT HIM TO BE THE STARTING QB. How is that supposed to work out for us? You think Crennel would rather have Cassel in there than his asspal Brady Quinn?

Asamoah has regressed.

I don't know that he was ever that good, but this goes to coaching too. Instead of trying to stick it up the middle, we should spread the formation. Instead of trying to keep Cassel in a pocket that this line can't maintain, try rolling him out now and then.

We do absolutely nothing, on either side of the ball, to keep the opposition guessing.

I didn't watch the game to "grade out" every player at every position, but there were enough plays to see that DJ is killing the defense by just guessing on plays (and guessing wrong). Eric Berry can't bring opponents down even when he's jumped on their back. Charles and Hillis can't get into the open field because they're being asked to run into the back of our weak ass line.

Personally, this is more of a coaching issue then a talent issue. Romeo is quickly proving that he's every bit the coach that Cassel is the QB -- he just can't win when it matters.

Then Romeo shouldn't have taken the job. He tied his horse to this hitch the second he accepted damaged goods at the top. Now he's screwed because he's never going to get a third shot (though I think the jury's in on whether he was ever deserving of a second).

They don't get to practice against nfl except on sundays. Our d lineman are garbage, our olineman do not get the work they need to get better. Then you have to protect cassel who wilts himself just as much if not more and blames everyone but himself.

All the more evidence he shouldn't be playing then. We don't have the Ravens/Bucs kind of defenses that will let someone like Dilfer/Johnson (and Cassel) succeed. The point everyone else is making about the defense deflating when we're behind is probably valid, but don't get behind to begin with then.

As long as Pioli is here, Cassel is our QB. It doesn't matter if he throws 10 interceptions per game, he will still have the job.
