priest not a sever sprain. Listed as questionable.

Just trying to lend a helping hand, Iowanian.

If Priest can't play, Blaylock starting, LJ backup. Right now preparing as if Priest will play.

3rd Down Conversions are Teams obvious weakness

Defense........Long runs given up....Missed tackles(10 in ballgame) and stopping 3rd down conversions(sounds ALOT like last year)

10 missed tackles in the ball game?

I thought the graphic I saw on screen had a bigger number than that... maybe I imagined that.

The graphic on the game showed 28.........but remember that was trusty ole Bill Maas' assessment. I never thought he could count good.

back.

Houston's 0-2 record is misleading.
-6 in turnovers..............Dominating teams statistically, but giving up too many turnovers.

ENDelt260
09-21-2004, 11:02 AM
Houston 0-2 more misleading than ours. Most sig reason they are 0-2 is they are -6 in turnovers. They are In the top 15 offensively & def.

09-21-2004, 11:04 AM
Squad and coaches disappointed.

Very "receptive"(if only the WRs were) in film and meetings yesterday.

Overall Team moral is good.........know they're not out yet.

Vermiel's job to keep their mind right.....positive.

Alot of 0-2 teams will come on strong.......some 2-0 teams will fold.

Thinks we'll improve offensively

questions.

Blaylock plays very well in "kind of offense" they were looking to run. Priest said he was fine, DV thought after seeing him folded up it was "better" to leave him on the bench.

has Great Confidence in Blaylock to do screens, draws etc....

Vermiel instructed by Players assn not to say anything regarding warfield........DV plans on Warfield playing right now. Doesn't know what to expect.

DV hasn't spoken to Warfield personally yet.

Iowanian

Holiday likely back.

Dalton played like a starter.....played better than in any preseason game. Doesn't know what they'll do sunday.

Browning played well at RDE and could play any position.

JR could play RDT and LDT, thinks its better leaving him at LDT for now.....give him consistancy.

ptlyon
09-21-2004, 11:10 AM

and IIRC, that stat was posted early in the game

I also think they had Caroliina down for 26?

Iowanian
09-21-2004, 11:11 AM
Degree of Optimism that Kennison could play. Taking out fastest WR IS a big consideration for offense.

I'm calling BS on this one.....
"Gonzalez is a better complete football player than at any time in KC.....He's more explosive, better catching, running better routes........being Held ALOT.............Has more catches than after 2 games last year.

Iowanian
09-21-2004, 11:14 AM
Most big plays given up due to LB and Safety Fill.......not D line failure.

thinks Beisel is growing and doing better every day...works so hard, they WANT to find a place for him to play.

Have to eliminate Frustrating penatlies.......Dexter taking helmet off, etc.....Over celebrating.......

showing the jumping into stands penalty to tape....sending it in I think he said.....

Can't do anything about no calls on Holding, or bad holding calls.

Says there could be holding called on every team........some hold more........thought Johnny Morton's holding call was crap.............Sounds like he's saying Denver Holds ALOT to me.

Called out Sapps Hold that gave a 1st down.

says he's going to coach the hell out of the tapes.........Knows which crews call the hell out of what.....sometimes more vs different teams.

Iowanian
09-21-2004, 11:20 AM
FG kicker is 2/3.........but has missed at 47yds and 59........not horrible...........Likes his Kickoffs and thinks he'll be a fine kicker.

Punter has been good. Can improve.

Mr. Laz

i thought that call was crap too


morton had his hand inside the other guys pads... that's legal


the defender turned and pulled away ... Morton let go


supposed to be legal

i guess the ump thought that Morton didn't let go fast enough :mad:



i think those denver refs definately belong to the normal shannarat payment program.

I thought they tore these plays out of the playbook this year. Have they ran a screen yet this year? It's the one play they were gauranteed to get yardage last year and now they won't run it. :shake:

Priest must not want to win games then. Screens were our bread and butter last year -- the play we ran the best -- always worked. Obviously we're struggling not running them. Is the quest to break some rushing record more important to him then getting to the playoffs? Surely he sees he's not going to break any rushing records this year.

Damn.. my feed died.

I believe it is because only 1 missed tackle per play is counted. I saw many plays where 2 to 4 people got their hands on the ball carrier and let go. Those as I recall do not count as more than one missed tackle.

Or, the ref saw that we were making a big play and had to do something. I wonder if Refs are barred from fantasy football leagues. :hmmm:

Good question. I have been wondering myself. Anyone?
Before the season when Priest was asked about his supposed goal of rushing for over 2,000 yards this season, he said that he could catch less passes but still touch the ball as much, just with it being as rushes. He said that if you spread half of his 70 or so catches among Kris Wilson, TG & the WR's, and limit him more to rushes, he could still make as much a contribution but mostly as a rusher.

When, after 2 games, he only had 4 catches, the rest became implied that it was game planning for him not to catch the ball as much out of the backfield.

I can't believe DV spanked Johnson like that...that's freakin' classic. He seemed to be bruatlly honest about Baker's lame azz punting before he cut him...hmmmm

...of course, we were all hearing how Johnson had grown up so much and was looking to be a real team guy, blah blah...

I was under the impression that Priest had been the last of Green's options in his progressions. If that is the case, then Priest's 70 or so catches were the result of the other guys not being open in the first place.


Regardless, those pass plays to the RB have been a big part of our offense for the last 2 years and from what I can see, we really need them back.

Iowanian
09-21-2004, 01:07 PM
What I can't understand is why he(Vermiel) gives soooo much leeway to some players, and rides others like a coal Mine Mule.

There are players it seems that Vermeil is immune to disparaging, while others can't do anything right.

I guess none of us know whats happening behind the scenes.

Not all of them. The screen was a staple of our offense. There have been plenty of called passing plays to Priest.
