Gretz takes a shot at Adam Teicher

http://www.kcchiefs.com/news/2008/03...aken_comrades/

You canít believe everything you read.

Thatís especially true these days when thereís so much to read from so many sources.

In an effort to help our comrades in the media, we are here today to sweep up some of the mess theyíve made in recent stories.

Like the recent coverage of the Chiefs signing of free agent linebacker Demorrio Williams by the local newspapeer. It was reported that the Williams signing was due to the coaching staffís unhappiness with Napoleon Harris and his play at middle linebacker last season. The story said that Donnie Edwards was moving inside to middle linebacker and Williams would play outside linebacker. No source was provided for this information. That lack of attribution didnít keep local radio and television yakkers from repeating the information like it was fact.

Just one problem: itís not true. Edwards isnít moving to the middle, Harris isnít moving to the bench and Williams isnít moving into the starting lineup.

I know this is true because I asked the only sources needed for this discussion: head coach Herm Edwards and defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham. The Chiefs liked Williams because heís young and fast; Cunningham said he reminds him a little bit of former linebacker Anthony Davis from the mid-1990s. Remember, Edwards will soon celebrate his 35th birthday. After seasons of being an iron-man, he had injury problems last year.

The Chiefs wanted another young linebacker, an upgrade from what theyíve seen in the past from the likes of Keyaron Fox. The coaches wanted to improve the competition level at linebacker, and both coaches felt they needed another experienced body to get that done. They want to see more consistency and more plays from the linebacker group as a whole.

But that doesnít mean either of those veterans is headed to the bench or that Williams is penciled into the starting lineup.


Hereís another one, this from the Boston Globe. Because of his early career with the Patriots, there are sportswriters in New England who still think Ty Law can play the cornerback position in the NFL.

Last week the Globe had a feature on Law, pumping up his credentials and his current availability. It included some interesting quotes from Law. He said:

ďI thought the opportunity was a great one at the time (going to Kansas City.) But to be honest, it wasnít the best playing experience for me by any means. I feel that if you put me in a situation that takes advantage of my skills, I could be in Hawaii the next three years. But you have to be in the right scheme of things to showcase your talent.Ē

By Hawaii, Law was talking about playing in the Pro Bowl.

At this point in his career, Lawís only hope of visiting Hawaii is buying his own plane ticket. He can no longer run with receivers. How many times did he simply fall down trying to make a move in coverage? He is willing to come up and support the run, but a corner has to cover and thatís something Law did very little of during his 33 games with the Chiefs.

For Law to indicate he was not handled very well by the Chiefs in their defensive scheme is ridiculous. It was more like the other way around. His inability to run and cover receivers hampered what the Chiefs were able to do with their defense.

More than likely there will be a team that signs Law now that heís a free agent. Buyer beware.

Would have been nice if Gretz had mentioned WPI, who got it right the first time.

Gretz should then have clarified that the coaching staff are indeed dumbasses if they WERE pleased with the production of Napolean Harris last season.

Why? The Star totally dropped the ball on this one. Gretz can sometimes be a bit petty, but his role as media watchdog in this case is completely justified. Chiefs fans deserved to be informed. In this case the Kansas City Star was misinforming them.

More people should read WPI.

WPI didn't even beat a Chiefsplanet poster to the punch on the signing of Devard Darling.


I'm looking, but I'd swear I read a quote from Williams that says he'll compete for a starting position in camp.?.

Well for one, I don't believe for a second that Williams isn't going to be a starter next year. Why the hell would he willingly go from being a very solid starter in Atlanta to a backup for a crap team in KC? That makes no sense, and I'm guessing Herm was just pissed that people made an assumption so he's playing devil's advocate.

Also, Gretz is a tool because he always plays this holier than thou card on fans or members of the media because he's Carl's lapdog. He's pathetic and I'd be embarrassed to know him personally.

I'm pretty sure the only media outlet that has done an interview with DeMorrio is Warpaint.

Its just a matter of time before Chris Hanson walks into a room and asks WPI to sit down and talk about why you're here.

Apparently Teicher is taking up the mantle, because Nick hasn't done it for months, if not years, at this point.

Yeah.

The EO has reformed.

He now just claims to know something, and tells that we will be shocked.

I can't wait for that shocking news, 3 or 4 moths later, so he can be vindicated.
