As reported yesterday in the Capital Journal.

Kansas City also could make a change in its kickoff return team. With veteran Eddie Drummond averaging only 20.6 yards a return one of the league's worst numbers Edwards said he may try second-year receiver Jeff Webb at the position.

The Chiefs also are preparing for a change at right guard. Youngster Rudy Niswanger took some 40 snaps in last week's loss to Denver in place of veteran John Welbourn, whose transition from tackle back to his native guard position isn't going well.

Herm needs to make these kinds of decisions sooner. Seems all these positive moves, ie Croyle, Niswanger and Webb is too late to salvage the season. He REALLY needs to put Pollard and Page in and let them get some experience. At this point, it really is rebuilding and we NEED to know if the future is Pollard and Page. If not we need to acquire talent in free agency or the draft, but the O line needs priority right now.

DRUMMOND isn't the one that needs to be benched, the whole special teams coverage sucks a whole lotta assage.

Herm is unable to make decisions that might go against what he did at the beginning of the season.

Stubborn *******.

Pollard and Page have been playing alot. While each has made a mistake or two, if Page can learn how to tackle, the they are both going to do very well for us.

But, I am glad to hear that something is going to be done about Welbourne. He has been pretty bad, pretty often.

I love your analysis of players chief31, but why does it take you and me making these decisions 3 or 4 weeks before hand for HERM to take them to heart and implement them???

I think someone actually made HERM get the internet and now he is listening to us!

Pollard missed a key Tackle that cost us a touchdown last week rightbefore Huard handed them the ball on the sack. That pissed me off - They need to do some good old fashioned open field tackling drills like back in high school.

I mentioned before that the Chiefs need to get back to the fundamentals and got laughed at.

Some one said if they hadn't learned that sh!t in 5th grade they shouldn't be in the NFL in the first place.

Fundamentals are just freakin' that. Fundamental.

I think the coaching staff is screwing the pooch because HERM is an ex "Player/Coach" and don't want to get on the team too much.

The Chiefs are turning into a bunch of non fundamental talent having b!tches because of this attitude.

Herm don't know sh!t about offense and is trying to run a team that needs just that!













That is all.

Stubborn *******.

I really think Carl Peterson has come down with a severe case of "Jerry Jonesitus." He's not allowing his coach to make the proper decisions for the team. CP talked everyone in to starting Huard at the start of the season and i doubt it stopped there.

Why do you think you see CP on the sidelines so much these days? I'm telling you, I don't think most of these personell decisions are strictly Herm's. Edwards was talking all offseason about how Webb would be returning kicks in place of Hall. Then, we didn't hear a thing about it when training camp started and then all of a sudden, we're bringing in a vet returner.

I'm officially calling it...Carl Peterson has seen his last season as the General Manager of the Kansas City Chiefs.

I just don't understand WHY players think that just hitting the guy is enough. HIT him, GRAB him, HOLD ON TO him and DRAG him to the friggin ground.

How hard is it?

Because Herm's an idiot and Drummond still sucks! If he played better then the Chiefs would get rid of him.

This, too, is true. Like I said before: "If [they] played better then the Chiefs would get rid of [them].

to bad that ther isnt anyone to move to LT. then move macintosh to RT. then move lapdog solari to the upperlevel mens bathroom, 3rd stall. this way he could see before hand where his play calling ends up.

The players all want to be on SportsCenter making the "BIG" hit, so they try to knock a guy down rather than using proper tackling techniques.

Fundamentals, baby, fundamentals...

They're young and need more experience. But at least they have the speed that Law and Surtain have lost.

Yeah, I haven't heard that one in...ummmm...the last ten years! And no one person should have the final say, be it either Herm or Carl. Take one look at Mike Holmgren as a perfect example of where that goes wrong.

:sign0098: I think you are very correct. The Coaches need to get thru to the players, The basics techniques stay the same. When you hit you wrap!!!! Big hits will not result in long term employment. Big hits, with strong fundamentals will! :bananen_smilies046:

They could use a few good lessons from Jared!
