View Full Version : Football Mellinger: One play symbolizes the Chiefsí lost season

10-14-2012, 06:55 PM
To recap: The Chiefs have lost four games by 16 points or more, must decide between a bad quarterback coming off a concussion or a worse quarterback who isnít, and are surrounded by clown-show storylines like a right tackle going on a misguided rant against the fans and a GM who apparently has precious little support from the owner.

If you want to throw up, nowís a good time, because our story is about to get even more sickening and disgusting.

After it was all over, a blowout loss to a franchise that won just one of its previous 14 games, Crennel said one of the worst things an NFL coach can say. He said he didnít understand why the Chiefs played so bad.

Thatís at least the second time Crennel has said as much after a blowout loss, and barring a series of miracles on the level of unicorns cooking your dinner tonight, those words will come to define his time in Kansas City the same way that never-say-it-canít-get-worse line defines Buddy Bellís.

Cassel probably would have been better today.

In the long run, if Quinn got up to speed, he might be a slight improvement. Hard to judge a guy when the running game is ass.

At the very least, the Chiefs did embarrass themselves in new ways on Sunday. They’ve been telling anyone who’d listen that turnovers are their biggest problem — it’s all turnovers; just take care of the ball — but here they played even on turnovers against one of the NFL’s (other) worst teams and lost by four touchdowns. A defense that had shown promising signs gave up more than nine yards per play against what had been the league’s 30th-ranked offense.

This loss also produced the following awful fact: When the Chiefs had the ball, they got outscored 7-3.

The Bears defense could blow out our offense. Betcha.

Ah, I have been wondering when people would start discussing the coaching. No big surprise, really. Crennel was an uninspired, and uninspiring, hire from the get go. It is exactly what one should expect when you hire a head coach who is trying to decide between "millionaire estates" and "countryside acres."

I don't think that has anything to do with it.

He was never a good motivator. Very good coach. But never a good head coach. I like Romeo in that he apparently works very hard, cares a lot about football, and players seem to love him. But he's not cut out for head coaching. And shame on a GM who wasn't smart enough to see that.

I think Quinn is better than Cassel. His first start since 2009 and he looked as good as Cassel has the last 4 years. The INTs werent really his fault were they? I mean, don't get me wrong. He sucks. But at this point I hope they go with Cassel. Yes I said I think Quinn is better but hope they stick with Cassel. You can figure that out on your own.

I'm guessing Tuesday the news will come down.

Clark will sheepishly admit his mistake in front of the media.

Pioli will slink out of town with a sack of Hunt money, cackling and rolling a blunt, with a tied up Chiefs cheerleader in his trunk.

If we're lucky we'll get a shame pic ala Josh McDaniels.

It's a shame that we're going to lose Crennel completely because he's one helluva d-coordinator. Probably the shittiest head coach in KC history but man, he can coach a defense though.

This whole experiment will take years to recover from, I'm afraid. They have talent now but by the time everyone learns another new system, the new QB gets settled and they get into a groove, half the quality players we have now will either retire or move on.

Life as a KC sports fan, ain't it great?

Crennel used to be a pretty good DC.

He sucks now.

He sucked last year.

He sucked in '10

It doesn't make sense, though.

He can field an attacking defense that can nullify a good quarterback. He's done it ... many times. We've seen it.

Maybe he's just stubborn?

He's a relic that believes that attacking can lead to a defense giving up big plays.

And he's absolutely right.

But in today's NFL, you can't win if you sit back and wait.

I dunno... They had the 16th ranked defense in 2010. Last year without Berry they still had a decent defense with no one to really rush the qb except Hali. He's better than anything fucking else we've seen here since the early 90's.

That's the thing ... it's not that he can't do it. He just won't.

He has the horses (assuming the defensive backfield is relatively intact) to have a very disruptive defense. He stays with his 'bend don't break' philosophy, though ... in spite of the fact that we just get eaten alive in small pieces while wearing down. An attacking defense, at least, might force a mistake and actually make a play once in a while that can change a game in our favor.

I get that his philosophy is dated, but he's done better in the past. I've seen it with my own, two eyes. It's very strange. Maybe the HC duties?

16th ranked defense against one of the easiest schedules you'll ever see.

And last year, this D sucked through most of the first half of the season, then he started becoming more aggressive and good things happened.

Then the moron reverted to a soft bend but don't break scheme this, and we are consistently getting our asses handed to us.

I said this before and got tons of shit for it.

But from a personnel side, Herm made a lot of very smart moves. Herm made the ballsy moves that set Pioli up to be a success in Kansas City. He brought in youth, ousted the veterans, and made the cap manageable. And no, none of those decisions were easy ones nor were they endorsed by our GM at the time.

The guy was a bad game day coach, but he got this team moving in the right direction.
