Look at this play and tell me coaching is not an issue with this team.

It's the end of the third quarter. We're down 10-7 and desperately need a drive.

We run Battle to the right side. When he hits the turf there is 30 seconds left in the quarter. Thirty seconds. That is an eternity in the NFL.

What do we do?



We half-heartedly mill around and wait for the next play like the quarter just started. Haley appears to simply concede the last 30 seconds, in fact you can see him saying "that's the quarter."

Zero situational awareness. Zero effort to try and get another snap off before the quarter ends. Zero interest in picking up the pace.

A well-coached team does not respond to that situation in that manner. I've seen good teams - the Patriots, the Colts, etc, etc, in this situation and they pick up the pace and get in another snap before the quarter ends. Not the Chiefs. They act like they don't give a shit.

Maybe I'm ****ing crazy but that pisses me off.

I don't see the big deal with 15 minutes left, a 3 point differential and possession of the ball.

I blame any and all deficiencies on Matt Cassel until proven otherwise.

Down 10-7 end of the 3rd? This is your proof of poor coaching?

What if you catch the Broncos unprepared on the final snap because they have to line up quickly? What if you get a big play out of it? Snapping that ball might turn out to be the play that turns the game around.

They can barely get plays in on time when given a 40 second play clock - you expect them to get a play in with 30 seconds left?

They thought they'd figured out Denver's running game at that point, so there wasn't a big rush. At that point, a long time consuming scoring drive would have been great. (emphasis on the scoring)

This was just a cripple fight. Tebow hit one pass, and that was the nail in the coffin.

By the way, we punted on this drive, and Tebow hit the bomb on Denver's ensuing possession.

But this is a poor example. You're nitpicking. Which is retarded, considering there are a ton of much better examples of piss-poor coaching you could have used.

Actually, I think Cassel is a very smart guy, and a quick thinker when the ball isn't in play. He's always run a pretty good 2-minute drill in terms of getting things organized and avoiding colossal ****ups.

That's why you see him frustrated about this playcalling thing, and frustrated by things like Baldwin running the wrong route (this happened in the third quarter on our TD drive, Baldwin ran into the same area as Breaston and Cassel got pissed). He has the aptitude to run the offense quickly and efficiently.

But apparently the coaches don't even prepare for this kind of situation. Or maybe they do, they just didn't even realize it was happening.

Either way, piss poor.

It might not seem like a big deal, but every play in this league is huge. A game can turn on one play. In a game where we needed every snap possible, we said "meh."

I sure didn't see Denver saying "meh" to that third and 11.
