View Full Version : Now eating my Crow



wants to win
12-29-2010, 12:01 PM
Just wanted to drop in and eat my crow. At the beginning of the season, as big of a Chiefs fan as I am, you'll recall how much dogged them. I was accused of being a Raider or Bronco fan lurking about on the board and in the forum and all called all kinds of other names. Just let me say, man was I wrong. As wrong as you could get and I willfully acknowledge that. This has been a fabulous, miraculous season and I so enjoy my season tickets so much more and being at Arrowhead when the team is winning. I was just tired of losing year after year and they have certainly changed that.
First and foremost my hat is off to Haley and Pioli. Man what a difference they have made. Pioli by bringing in Weis and Crennel and Haley for his daily leadership and coaching ability. Simply put they have made me come to like the taste of crow.
GO CHIEFS! :toast2:

I agree 100% if it wasnt for Haley and Pioli I really dont think that we would be where we are today.

props for admiting that you were wrong.

I also agree that without both Haley and Pioli there is no way that we are the AFC WEST champs. Both have done nothing but good things for this football team. Haley without a doubt should be up there for coach of the year.

That would be awesome for him to win coach of the year but I bet Bill Belichek will probably win it i hope not tho

Loving these threads. I think we were all a little skeptical heading into this season and rightfully so. In Pioli we trust. As someone said yesterday on tv, the chiefs are 1 year ahead of schedule. Another great offseason and this team will be getting the respect they deserve.

In a way I kind of like how the Chiefs are flying under the radar in the National media. Don't get me wrong I love turning on ESPN and all these other sports shows and hearing them talk about they Chiefs but man IMO I believe we are on our way back to the way it was in the 90's(accept we will win atleast 1 Super Bowl)

Flying under the radar and being a home underdog in the playoffs could be just what Todd Haley needs to rally the troops and keep them loose.

That is very true especially since we are so young the young guys need something to motivate them and I think thats just what they need

I'll have a piece of that crow. I posted that the Chiefs were done after the Chargers blowout, that they could never recover from that humiliation. Man was I wrong. I hate crow.

I've not had any, and won't be. I was pretty open minded when it came to this season. I was hoping for 6-10 or 8-8, so this has been a pleasant surprise.

The guy I'm a Teeeeeeeny tiny bit disappointed in of late has been McCluster. He just kinda dropped off after coming back from the injury. But he's a rookie, and there's time.

I think we still haven't completely decided how to use him, yet. I'd like us to try more WR screens to him, though our WR screens have a tendency to be nightmares (and I am not sure why). Also, I'd like to see us use his speed vertically to take some more shots down the field.

Mccluster isnt the same since his high ankle sprain and I think he is still recovering from it.

That may be a good point. He didn't seem like he had the same explosion on that third down strike he caught from Cassel in the last game. He sort of turned it up and got what he could. Earlier in the year he made a similar play but turned it into a 31-yard TD.

I am really curious to see what we do with McCluster in the long-term. I would like to see him and Charles alternating in the backfield, although I know we brought him in to be more of a slot receiver. I love with Jones brings to the table in terms of work ethic and leadership but I think the running games suffers when he is in there because he has lost a step. If he loses another this off-season he won't be much good to us in 2012.

I dont think Jones lost a step so much as everyone knows we are gonna pund it up the middle when he is in. Jones always seems to be hitting the holes in the middle and they are plugged up.

This could be true, too.

I think Charles is a really unique player in that he make our offense line look better than it really is...last season our offensive line suddenly got a lot better when he took over for LJ.

No doubt. Charles is the man!!

Although a lot of RBs could make a line look better taking ver for LJ!! :D

Jones is getting up there though. I wouldnt mind seeing him back in a limited role. I think he is great for the team!!

I think he helps with Charles a lot showing him what you need to do in the weight room to last long term in the NFL

Oh I agree - I think when Jones retires he will be a heck of an RB coach or strength coach.

I would not mind seeing him back in the role he has now. Charles still gets the ball a lot and it saves Charles from takeing 25-30 hits a game. I like how we are useing our RBS.

I hope that J. Battle, is learning all he can from Jones, He may well be the next in line to take that role.

I agree.

He is getting the tougher carries, so Charles can get the more favorable carries, increasing his chances of breaking loose for the big gains.

Also our O-line isnt a big strong O-line either... its built for Jamaal where hes fast and he can hit the whole real quick. The O-line cant sustain a block more than a couple of seconds because they arent that big so it benifits Charles more than it does Jones, but Jones is still able to break a few runs with that O-line.
