I have a hard time evaluating Solari, same as I do with Croyle. When there is so much turmoil with our offensive line situation, it has to be extremely difficult to call the right plays, knowing that the O-line could easily blow-it for the entire possession.

If we could bring in someone with a proven track record as an NFL OC, then I would be happy about that.

I believe that you are right, that Solari will get the axe, but I can't blame him for this offense.

Also, I won't be too heart-broken if Solari returns. Unless he winds-up being as bad as what many people seem to think.

I just don't understand how you can be so judgemental against him, when he is trying to work with the same O-line that LJ and Croyle have had to deal with. Yet you stick-up for them.

A second-year OC with no offensive line has as hard a time as the QB and the RB.

I believe it took the Chiefs until the middle of this losing streak to finally throw the ball on first down.

When you don't have a solid line, you don't keep doing the predictable thing.

I have not stuck up for LJ for sometime.

He is precariously sitting atop my favorite player list as of now.

Croyle is learning still so I have a lot more patience for him.

I cannot be totally down on Solari, as much as I can on Edwards. However, I do not know how the game plan is put together, nor the plays they decide are going to be called on specific downs.

What I can say is this: If you are going to run the ball on the first play of every game, you are committing yourself to a three and out on the first possession of every game. Every team in the league knows that we are going to run the ball on first down. If you do not change that up to put some respect into the defense, then you are setting the tone of the game that very first play from scrimmage.

Look at how this season has gone and tell me I am wrong.

Solari is another victim of Herm Edwards. He's calling the plays and his conservatism is a reflection of Herm's philosophy. Solari is just doing what his boss tells him to do. He will most likely get the blame and will lose his job. But it really isn't all his fault.

I wish Carl would have given Al Saunders Herm's job.

I have waited to bring this up until late in the season.

What is the problem with the communication between the coaches?

Is that the players faults?

Make no mistake, the O line players leave something to be desired. A lot of people want to place blame with Soloari on the play calling. But the play calling has been so pathetically consistent, that Herm is instructing Solari to play conservative. If the play calling were erratic and changed week to week, then I would say Solari has the blame. But when we run on first and second down for the majority of the season, there is no other explanation other than Solari is carrying out Herm's wishes.

I think Solari had his hands tied by the "ball control / defense" of Herm.

Solari was the line coach and called all the blocking for those great plays a few yrs ago. I think he just needs a chance to open it up, with a few new offensive linemen, I think he could do great.

It does help after the sting of another loss...

I refuse to let this ruin my Christmas though!

We had one with my GF's family today, and we get my family tomorrow!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Fire the GM, head coach, OC, QB coach, all QB's (maybe keep Damon for like 3rd string if he doesn't retire or Herm doesn't get him killed) and everybody on the o-line except Wiegmann, Waters, and Mac.

You might as well ask for the wind to stop blowing, or the sun to stop shining, or Jessica Alba to stop being hot!

It ain't gonna happen!

On a lighter note...

I agree 100%. This machine is running directly according to what Herm Edwards wants to do. Herm has been opening up the play calling in the last couple of games, and that is good to see.

I am not sure if the Chiefs run their organization like this or not, however, I was always under the impression that a team made a game plan which usually had the head coaches stamp on it. It was then up to the coordinators and other coaches to execute that game plan.

Unless Solari is calling plays that are outside the game plan, or is misreading the changes made by the other team, I would say that he is not totally to blame here. In my opinion, I think the guy has made some pretty good calls this season... I think he has had the shackles of Edwards on all season though.
