Gretz-Vermiel interview from KCFX

Q&A with DICK VERMEIL
Sep 09, 2005, 8:35:39 AM

KCFX-FM

BOB GRETZ: The stadium’s quiet right now. The players are filtering in but as you look out at the empty seats in the stadium you can almost feel the energy starting to build. Opening day in the NFL, especially when you’re at home, is one of the most exciting times of the season.

DICK VERMEIL: “It is and you’ve really got be careful you don’t peak early. I felt it yesterday with our players. There’s a focus about them and they know the time is coming. I’m anxious to see how they respond.”

GRETZ: You said this week that you’re a bit up-tight because while you think you know what you have you’re really not sure until you get out there and start playing.

VERMEIL: “That’s very true and sometimes you assume you’re going to be what you were and you’re disappointed. Then sometimes you can be concerned that you’re not what you were and you’re better than you were. I’ve been through this 15 times and have some experience. Hopefully, I’ll be pleasantly surprised.”

GRETZ: How has the week of practice gone for you?

VERMEIL: “It’s gone very good. It really has. Nice to have Trent (Green) working 100%. It was a little hot on Wednesday and I didn’t work them in pads this week. They worked with good tempo on Thursday.”

GRETZ: You talked this week about speaking to the team about dealing with intangibles. In your mind, what are the intangibles?

VERMEIL: “All the things you as a football player have total control of. There’s a lot of things in the National Football League we have no control of. We didn’t make up our schedule; we didn’t decide to play the Jets here in the opener or go to Oakland next week or Monday night the next week in Denver. We didn’t decide to set the restriction to a 53-man roster or 46-man active roster.

“The intangibles are those things you personally control: your work ethic, your focus, your preparation during the season, what you do when you leave the stadium at night to help you to come back the next day better prepared - all those different things — your attitude towards your teammates, your unselfishness – all these things are intangibles. If you handle them properly and collectively better as a football team you’re a better team.”

GRETZ: Update us on the health of your football team. John Browning was barely able to do anything in training camp but he’s been back this week and by all reports has looked pretty good.

VERMEIL: “He went to a back specialist in LA and they did some things for him out there that didn’t require an operation. He’s been rehabbed properly and our trainers have done a good job. He is really ready to go, but I don’t know how many snaps we can count on him playing, but he’s ready.”

GRETZ: Offensively, you held Brian Waters out yesterday.

VERMEIL: “Last night he said he felt a lot better. He had a little back spasm.”

GRETZ: Trent Green and Dante Hall. Is Trent fine?

VERMEIL: “Trent had a very good week, threw the ball accurately, efficiently and to the right person and Dante appears to be ready to go.”

GRETZ: What a way to open the season against the Jets and Herman Edwards, a man who played for you in Philadelphia.

VERMEIL: “We’ve maintained that relationship and that bond that we developed as a coach-player, now as a coach-coach. When I was in broadcasting it was broadcaster-coach. I’m very proud of Herman and think he’s doing a good job – obviously being in the playoffs three of the last four years. But we’d still like to beat him. Neither one of us play, so it’s going to be up to our players.”

Does it worry anybody else that the Chiefs seemingly rarely, if ever, practice in pads?

No, but if he starts talking about how Kawika is improving his flag-removal technique, then I'll start to get a little nervous.

There's no way you can avoid playing some "quality playoff teams", so whats better than playing them at home or especially at the home opener???
We ALWAYS have an away game with the Raiders and the Donks, whats better than having it on a national stage???

...........I just dont get it.

We finished 7-9 last season. This season we have the most difficult schedule in the NFL. That's why Vermeil always brings it up. But, I do agree. Im getting tired of hearing about it also.

No we don't. SD has our schedule but has Indy and Pitt in place of Cinn and Hou.

AND they have road games all the way across the country in NE, NYJ, Wash, Phi and Indy. OUCH.

AND I have yet to hear one peep out of Marty bitching about its difficulty

I think Dick was hoping we would have had the following schedule:

WEEK 1: 49ers
WEEK 2: Dolphins
WEEK 3: @ Saints (who obviously have to forfeit since they have no stadium)
WEEK 4: @ Dolphins
WEEK 5: @ 49ers
WEEK 6: Raidurrs
WEEK 7: @ El Camino Community College
WEEK 8: @ Broncos
WEEK 9: the Dolphins practice squad
WEEK 10: Chargers
WEEK 11: Broncos
WEEK 12: @ Raidurrs
WEEK 13: Los Angeles Dodgers
WEEK 14: @ Chargers
WEEK 15: Ottowa Renegades
WEEK 16: UNLV
