Adam Teicher calls out Sippio Nation

REGULATORS, MOUNT UP

http://chiefsblog.kansascity.com/?q=node/119

Quote:
The myth of Bobby Sippio

One of the many negative aspects of last summer's visit to Chiefs camp of NFL Films and the Hard Knocks crew was that the show glorified a wide receiver of rather average talents by the name of Bobby Sippio.

I still receive regular e-mails from fans wondering why the Chiefs don't play Sippio more and why I don't write about him more. I get more questions about Sippio than about any other Chiefs player, a fact that is simply amazing considering that Dwayne Bowe, Larry Johnson, Brodie Croyle and dozens of other more interesting subjects play for this team.

So it was predictable that the hate mail would roll in today after I had the nerve to write a story in this morning's Kansas City Star detailing the contributions of some of the Chiefs' young receivers in the exhibition opener in Chicago. I wrote mainly about Maurice Price, Will Franklin and Jeff Webb.

Not a mention of Sippio. I even received a call yesterday afternoon from one of my editors wondering whether I had simply forgotten about Sippio and that he caught the winning TD. I'll pass along what I told him.

Price, Franklin and Webb did their work against Chicago starters or backups who will be with the Bears when the regular season begins. These three receivers also look like they will be playing for the Chiefs when the season starts.

Sippio did his work in the fourth quarter of a preseason game. That's the domain of guys who will be looking for jobs in another few weeks. It's a sign, Sippio fans, that your hero is going to have a tough time making the team. And he caught his three passes against players who will soon be ex-Bears.

That may not mean much to you, but I guarantee that it does to the Chiefs.

I talk regularly with Herm Edwards, offensive coordinator Chan Gailey and wide receivers coach Eric Price. None has been critical of Sippio, even off the record. But clearly they are more excited about Franklin and Price, mainly because of their speed.

Sippio isn't fast. It's why he was playing in the Arena League when he joined the Chiefs. It's why he doesn't get more playing opportunities.

I can't tell you today whether or not Sippio will make the team. My guess is that he won't. But one thing is becoming clear: the wide receivers who will play for the Chiefs when the season begins will come from this group: Bowe, Devard Darling, Franklin, Price and Webb. Not Bobby Sippio.

And that's something the billions of Bobby Sippio fans out there will just have to deal with.
News From The Future: Kansas City Star writer Adam Teicher was killed today when his brakes failed, causing his car to careen off a 50-foot cliff. Teicher actually survived the crash and exited the car, only to be hit by a meteor that had fallen from outer space. "It was almost as if he had tempted fate somehow," remarked an officer at the scene.

I've been rootin' for Sippio, just because I thought we needed a slant receiver to go over the middle and make some rough catches (whatever idiots think Dante Hall makes a good slant receiver can suck my balls, the key skills are toughness and hanging on to the ball, not speed). With the new Chan offense and a 2 TE set (OMG Cottam FTW), we really don't need a guy like Sippio. We also don't need Darling. Bowe, Frankling, Gonzales, Cottam, and whatever other scrub they want are all we need as far as receiving threats go.

The fact that Devard Darling is a starter....

This is what the Chiefs have, they have Dwayne Bowe and then a bunch of other guys and that's pretty much all they are.

And I've had enough Bobby Sippio and Jeff Webb to, when both those guys are gone it won't be to soon.

I can agree with that, although I'm hoping that Franklin can be a major factor. I just don't see a lot of upside with Darling, beyond the typical mediocre FA we tend to attract.

(I'm through the 1st quarter of the Bears/Chiefs game, and pretty impressed with his size speed so far. I won't say anything about that catch on the first drive hitting the ground if you won't.)

Darling should be okay, but I'd bet by the end of the season Franklin is our #2.

The Myth of Adam Teicher?

Submitted by bigmagic on August 9, 2008 - 8:19pm.

Some of you think Adam Teicher is is the Chiefs beat reporter. Yes he informs the fans about the team but I remind you all last year during training camp he put out report after report that Brodie Croyle would open the season as the starter. Now he is telling us the best pair of hands since Stephon Page(do your remember him Adam? He wasn't fast either)isn't going to make the team.

Reminds me of when you told us what a great camp Greg Favors was having and two weeks later he was gone. Shall I name more? There are plenty of examples where your "insider knowledge" was just the spin the Chiefs were putting out. Is Sippio a long shot? Maybe but to ignore the fact that he had a good game isn't being a very good beat reporter.I think his special teams play was against Chicago's starters since we have a running Sasquatch joke about him and sing out evertime we see him. Some teams keep 6 wide outs its not out of the question that he makes the team.

The Hall of Fame is full of guys that were too small,too slow and were told they didn't have a chance. Be a reporter not a coach and report on the players that interest your readers even if in your "evangelical" opinion they won't make it.

So how about an in depth article on the man who won't make the team to make up for all those times when you fed us that information that was "insider" and didn't pan out. You could call it "The Real Bobby Sippio" by Adam(The Real Chiefs's beat reporter) Teicher!
