From the dispatches section..

<LI>1) "How good of a job has Indy president Bill Polian done? the Colts have their cornerstones- QB Manning, WR Harrison, RB Edge, TE Dilger and DE Bratzke- all signed, for all practical purposes, through at least 2003. Yet the club opened the season $3.21 million under the salary cap, the third biggest cushion in the league.....

<LI>2) "We've got to play smarter football," said Chiefs coach Cunningham after the 27-14 loss to the Colts. No kidding. On its first punt, KC lined up with 10 men. How can Larry parker forget he's on he punt team? On Indy's first snap, DT Chester jumped offside. Then KC had to burn a timeout in the 1st half because the defense only had 10 men on the field; on the next play, DE Dan Willams jumped offside."

In RE to #1.. kudos to Indy... looks like they'll be a pain in the AFC for years to come (the Colts a model franchise??.. doesn't sound right, does it?...)

And as for #2... KC may want to reevaluate how they appoach minicamps and preseason... no excuses for those kind of mistakes... I would have had the high school team I coach running gassers for days if they brain locked that bad!

Wasn't it Williams who got the offsides on Indy's first snap? I remember he was lined up offsides and I was pointing that out when he went ahead and jumped offsides, just to be sure.

No, Williams didn't start. Remember? It was definitely Glock.

Yep, it was Glock. What Williams DID do, however, was cost the team twice in one play. When he came in late and they burned the timeout, and then he was flagged on the same play. The announcer even commented that Williams was "doing double duty".

*sigh*

Yeah, you're right. I might have just mistaken them, because i'm pretty sure Williams lined up offsides, then jumped further offsides (maybe encroachment?). It just wasn't the first play, I guess.

Bob Dole thinks Parker should be excused, since the first KC punt happened so quickly that Parker was still putting on his jersey.

Lol Bob Dole!

Isn't it a little late for a crusty old fart like yourself to be up? Go snuggle with 'Liz.

Just got done snuggling and sent her on her way, so Bob Dole thought he'd see what was new on the football discussion front.

Oh - preseason doesn't "really" matter. The Chhiefs used it to evaluate "imdividual" players, just wait until the regular season starts, you'll see! Guess what Gun?

Hawaii,

You ought to be used to this. Just about every team in the NFL is ahead of the Chiefs in terms of player development, drafting, and salary cap management. For whatever reason, Gunter's team have always been in dissaray. They always seem to be short of timeouts when they need them.

Management of this organization is atrocious. From top to bottom.
