Gretz: An Ugly Evening

http://kcchiefs.com/news/2007/08/24/..._ugly_evening/

GRETZ: An Ugly Evening
Aug 24, 2007, 8:19:28 AM by Bob Gretz - FAQ

Mark down the date and time. It was August 23rd. The time was 8:46 p.m Central Daylight Time.

Thatís when Brodie Croyle had his welcome to the NFL moment.

Croyleís pass intended for Eddie Kennison was picked off by New Orleans cornerback Jason David, ending yet another fruitless Chiefs offensive possession.

And the Arrowhead faithful, at least those that bothered to show up for pre-season game No. 3 let him have it. A full shower of boos followed Croyle off the field. No NFL quarterback has ever worked his way into a starting job without hearing from unhappy hometown fans.

The problem for Croyle is that the booing was deserved. It was also more than likely directed at the entire Chiefs offense, which was simply awful against the Saints. Thus, New Orleans walked away with a 30-7 victory that wasnít as close as the score indicates.

Croyle was awful; hitting just five of 17 passes. Plus, he threw another interception, his third in three games. But he also had no help. Right now, the Chiefs offense is in a shambles and it starts along the offensive line. The front wall is not getting the job done, whether in the running game or the passing game.

Saints DE Will Smith destroyed left tackle Will Svitek, blowing past him and through him all evening. This is no way to evaluate a quarterback.

Coming into the game it seemed pretty obvious that Croyle was going to be Herm Edwards starting quarterback in Houston. All he had to do was go out against the Saints and not spit the bit, as the horse folks would say.

Well, Croyle spit the bit and now you have to wonder if the head coach might be re-thinking his position. He and the coaching staff certainly have to be rethinking what they are doing on offense, because nothing is getting done. The Chiefs have scored just two offensive TDs in three games, are averaging 212.7 yards per game and have turned the ball over six times. Dustin Colquitt is going to need a vacation after this pre-season; heís already punted 20 times in three weeks.

Some holes got punched in the Chiefs defense as well, although itís hard to get riled up at this unit thatís gotten no support from its offense. The Saints ripped off 74 plays against the Chiefs and held the ball for more than 37 minutes. Still, they had just one touchdown in their first eight possessions.

Itís the pre-season. These games are just snapshots of a team. But put up the three offensive snapshots side-by-side and thereís something to worry about. The Chiefs offensive line is not getting the job done. Maybe itís what they are being asked to do, and more specifically, maybe they are being asked to do things they cannot do. Edwards hinted at that on Thursday evening.

Whatever is going on with that unit, itís not going to matter who the starting quarterback for this team is if the offensive line doesnít get itís stuff together and become a more cohesive and productive unit.

Without that, Brodie Croyle and the rest of the Chiefs are going to hear many more catcalls from the stands in Arrowhead.

The offensive line is indeed being asked to do something they can't do: block.

1) The website needs an editor. Grammar is just brutal.

2) I'm surprised they'd post such a negative, albeit truthful, article.

I can't believe the offensive line was not addressed more in the off season.

Basically just got Mcintosh and lost Black.

I hope our QB's don't injured this year because of this stupidity.

It's not in Hermie's interest or forte. He knows zilch about offense. He tore down the Jets O and is now doing it to KC. Prepare to be lopsided yet again folks. We might have the makings of a great defense but the offense even with Johnson is mediorce at best.
