Why doesn't Herm apply the "We have to score 30 points" approach to every game?

During his post-game press conference Herm said that he told the offense that they would have to score at least 30 points for the team to have a chance today and that was the mindset they went with on offense, in terms of being aggressive in getting points on the board.

This is a similar mindset that the Chiefs had under Vermeil/Al Saunders... going into every game striving to score 30+ points and being as aggressive as possible on offense, continuing to attack attack attack.

My question is why doesn't Herm apply this approach to EVERY game. I'm not suggesting it is realistic to think that the Chiefs are actually going to score 30+ points every game (especially given the depleted state of the offense). But wouldn't the Chiefs be better served going with this aggressive approach on offense (ESPECIALLY on the road) rather than the ultra-conservative crap we saw in Denver and in Pittsburgh?

How do you know he doesn't?

He said pregame that his ideal team scores 30 per game while allowing 10.

I don't think he does. I remember him saying after the Denver game he wanted to play conservative on O and try to steal the game at the end.

His mindset is like a game of musical chairs..it depends on what day and time..he contradicts himself all the time..and never admits making any mistakes..
So trying to understand his mindset would be better left up to a Physician

Well, in his defense, it was the first start in 6 years for a career backup. I'm not sure I blame him for taking it slow in regards to finding out what Hutard is capable of.

Personally, I think he's handled the situation pretty well. Every week we let out more of the line for Huard, and for the most part it's served us well. I hated the play-calling in Denver, but the fact that Huard's responsibilities have increased with every game makes me believe there's some rhyme to the reason.

I agree but I think when the Chiefs are playing on the road they are going to be a very conservative team offensively hoping to minimize the TO's and try to win a low scoring game.

I am not saying that is bad by any means.

Good question, Mr. KCChiefsfan88. Maybe the Hermiliar is psychotic and unaware of his actions.

Or maybe Mr. Bob Dole is right and Herm is utilizing a technique common in group/team management by identifying an overall goal (a win) and a series of sub-objectives (such as scoring 30 on the nasty dolts). Then, he attempts to isolate the team's focus exclusively on these objectives during game preparation. This keeps his leadership and motivational speeches fresh each week in order to convince the team they can, in fact, win.

Then again, maybe not.

I'm still a little upset about the whole debacle at the end of the first half...

Hopefully he has an answer for us sometime this week.

I can't say with any certainty what his strategy is game to game, but his comment from early in the season regarding road games that "You can't win by trying to outscore the opponent on the road" would suggest he doesn't aggressively look to score points on the road.

The Chiefs had the ball on their 37, with 52 seconds left, and 3 timeouts. (The Chargers had zero timeouts)

And instead of taking a couple of shots at getting into field goal range, they ran the ball, stood there confused, let the playclock run all the way down, and then they called a timeout...to run the ball again.

It wasn't pretty.

Your kidding right? Who in their right mind would make a comment like that?

If you dont try to outscore your opponent on the road or at home, You dont win, unless the NFL is giving W's for a quality loss?

But I guess that is why "you play to win the game"..

Yep that was horrible but it is not surprising considering Herm's history with bad clock management.
