Guys I am a big Skins fan and just had a few questions to those who were familiar with Al Saunders. First off the Skins offense is bad. It looks just like the Gibbs offense before Saunders got there. I am thinking Gibbs is handcuffing him. Did Saunders ever throw the ball downfield cause the Skins dont. Did they always do WR screens also? And another thing I noticed was the they never do crossing routes over the middle. It is like those plays arent even in the offense. I know this is a Chiefs forum but I thought who better to answer these questions then you folks who watched the Saunders offense for 4 or 5 years. Also what is you opinion of Saunders now that he is gone? Thanks

I liked Saunders. He did great things for our offence, but I also think that Vermeil let him have his way with the O. A lot of screens were thrown with Priest and Tony Richardson and were very successful. I wouldn't say that they threw the ball downfield a ton, but we did have a 1000yard reciever every year so I guess he threw it enough. That is my quick tow cents, but I am sure that there are others on here who can give you a little more detailed info. :bananen_smilies046: Hope you stick around and enjoy the site. Even though you are a skins fan! :lol: Welcome to the Crowd!!

Our offense was da bomb with Saunders!

He should be our head coach right now!

I'm sure many of you will disagree with this, but it's the truth!

Heh!

Yeah I used to live close to KC so I still follow the Chiefs in the AFC. I just remember watching the Chiefs when Saunders and Vermeil were there and there offense looked nothing like the Skins now. I remember a bunch of stretch running plays which I never see now. It just looks like the most uncreative offense now with the Skins and just wanted to confirm my theory that Gibbs is choking Saunders down on playcalling.

I think Saunders was horrible then and now, I cant say that I am a skins fan but I do feel sorry for pawning Saunders off on you, How bout as a show of faith we take Saunders back and we will give you Solari, and to show we really mean it we will throw in Drummond.

Just want to show we are sorry lol.

Well if you really want to do them a favor why don't you help them out by taking Pete Kendall and Jon Jansen off their hands...I mean if you're gonna make amends do it right.

I don't know, but seriously doubt, that Gibbs is holding Saunders back too much. I haven't seen enough of the 'Skins to determine if the offense looks familiar, but would think that one major difference might be the young quarterback. Not that he is making mistakes, but perhaps that Saunders is still trying to 'ween' him from poor decision-making, by minnimizing the potential for him to do so.

Overall, I was rather impartial to Saunders. Vermiel was the offensive genius. He brought the same system from the Rams with him. I hope that Saunders learned from him, but have yet to see much in the way of evidence, to support that idea. Although, since his arrival in Washington, I have been hearing alot about the improvement of the offensive line.

I can't say that I miss him. I will say that I miss Dick Vermiel, Willie Roaf, Will Shields and Tony Richardson more.

Actually I am a lil homerish on this one, I don't know that I know anyone on the team other then Santana Moss and Clinton Portis, oooh and Ladell Betts, (Former Iowa Hawkeye and Im a Huge Hawkeye fan) although after looking I can see that Jon Jansen is on IR and they are both O-Line, so even though he is on IR sure we could assist there also, and if they want to get rid of Portis and Moss also, I guess we could find or make room.

Sorry to homer in on this one, but I agree.

I'm referring to their All Pro RT and Pete Kendall is a very versatile O-lineman (can play Guard or center)...

i miss the high flying offense. i miss seeing all that. but defense wins games... the defense can keep you in games just like we have been getting away with. i just hope at one point of the season the o-line can get their heads out of their a#@$% and do some decent blocking. the way we have been winning and playing offensively is a big big joke. if we didn't have a kick a$$ defense, we would be playing for first round draft kicks. don't get me wrong, we have great players on the o-line, but things aren't clicking. so all that being said and having nothing to do with this thread, I MISS CRYIN' DICK and the old players....bahblahblah:beer:

He also played high school ball in Blue Springs. He stayed at the motel my friend works at here over the 'skins bye week and he got to meet him. As far as Saunders goes... I can't remember who said it but I agree in missing Roaf, Shields, and Richardson more. Dick was a good coach but I didn't have much faith in Saunders and Robinson was a joke. I'm so glad we got Gun back.

Thanks. I really wasn't meaning to take so long of a break but I have been really busy lately. Business has been picking up a lot. I'm thinking I'm going to have to hire my first employee not too long into next year, possibly. I can't wait to get some underlings to boss around! :lol:

Glad to hear business is up. Hope that you're able to find a good employee...you own and IT type business right...??? If so, there are plenty around here, problem is you probably don't want to hire an employee that you know has a drinking problem...:yahoo:
