thoughts - scared? angry?

i'm not sure how much worse we can look this season, i think i'm now fully prepared to weather the storm.

i have to admit i'm interested to see if thig looks any better after a week of reps as the confirmed starter.

Maybe this pathetic decision will finally get Herm out of here. Probably wishful thinking.

I agree with you. After last sunday I swore I would not watch anymore games this season... It sometimes amazes me how much I love the chiefs.... It is like going every sunday to watch your little brother get beat up and there's nothing you can do about it. But I have gotten the mindset to watch a team grow every week and not to watch a team win. I know that saying this is played out but to have a high drat pick again will help tremendously. Besides with how good some of these teams look, we dont even belong in the playoffs.

With that said, I too am interested to see Thigpen start. May as well know for sure what we have by the end of the season to make the best use of free agency and the draft.

Not to back the chiefs coaching staff or especially the GM... but how is starting your 3rd string QB when your first 2 are injured pathetic? I actually expect it.

Who would you start?

Exactly. And don't forget, towards the end of the game, Tyler looked decent. Sure, Oakland was playing off the ball a bit, but he was pretty accurate and made nice, quick decisions. The interception on the last drive appeared to be Gonzo's fault more than Thigpen's. Tony was underneath the secondary near the first down marker on third and long in four down territory. He should've been looking for the pass, not trying to run the route past the first down marker.

Herm said Huard is healthy. Ready to back him, now?

ya, if huard is hurt, you have no choice DMN. But lets give the ball to the guy who gives us the best chance to win.

I completely agree. But I dont want to win just enough to slide into the playoffs on a wild card only to get handled the first game. That has been chiefs football for too long now. I love a winning record... but I want a superbowl. and Damon Huard will not be around long enough to get us there. I disagree with a lot of what the chiefs coaching is doing (mainly coordination, Both O and D), but it is time for these guys to sink or swim.

I guess what I am saying is that I want there to be no question at all to whether or not the chiefs have a QB by the end of the season that can do the job. I mean dont you?

Yes DMN, I appreciate your enthusiasm too on making it to the playoffs or SB. But lets be realistic. Thats not likely to happen anytime soon.

And yes, by the time we get to SB Huard will be gone. But still, we need to salvage some pride and do what we can to win THIS game.

Are you *so* sure that Huard gives us a better chance to win than Thigpen does? They each have one td pass to their credit and 0 wins between them. Thigpen has more picks, but at least one of them wasn't his fault. Huard's at the plateau of his playing ability, but Thigpen conceivably has the chance to improve given the chance to play against starting defenses.

We know what Huard can do, and this season's awash anyway. Let the kid show us if he has true potential or not while the perfect opportunity for it has presented itself.

Frankly it does not matter who starts, the way the line is playing no QB on this team has a chance.

I'm happy we're going to stick with one starter. Maybe this means Thigpen will get more reps which in turn would help him out during game time. Let's wait and see what he does.

i am glad he is going with thigpen and not huard.

i just cant stand to see the statue in the game!

even if thigpen makes a lot of mistakes...he is at least young. no reason to play a 35 year old qb on a rebuilding team. Just takes the emphasis off "rebuilding."
I'll agree with this, it's disheartening to see sacks off every blitz. With a mobile QB that can run away from a blitz, defenses might not play as aggressive, which could open up the run.

I am OK with giving the ball to Thigpen.

Thigpen should have been given the ball last year.

Run Thigpen, run!!!

Well hey, look at that. Some support for Thigpen. I truly thinks he gives us a better chance to win than Huard does just on his legs alone. From what I saw, his decision making wasn't horrible apart from the first two or three drives, which you can blame on jitters.
When they opened the playbook up, I thought that he did pretty damn well. I say GO THIGPEN, the REAL future of the Chiefs.... hopefully.

I agree . It is time now to see where we stand with our QB's . In my opinion Brodie will not be the man next year! . I just read elsewhere that it might be 4-5 more weeks before hes back and ready to play. Which is basically like last year only playing like 5-6 games . Two years of this and him being injury prone will be his exit outa here . too bad , because as a person he is top notch.

I won't expect a great day for Thig, after only one real week working with the 1st string... but some of the receivers and Thig are working "overtime" after practice.

He will be a little better this week, and if he gets the whole next week with the #1 snaps at practice, should get better... and better...

He has the arm... the feet... the skills... it is just a matter of time until he "turns on the lights"...

after watching 1st quarter....thigpen is no way near the qb that should be playing...0/7 already

Thigpen might be a decent runner with more work, but his passing game is terrible.

I am not convinced that Thigpen has what it takes. Considering the speed at which the QB on our team has to react, I would rather have seen Printers play.

I could care less about legs. OUR QB has to know how to throw the ball. When was the last time a Chiefs won a game????? When Huard was at QB. The idiotic management has turned this team into the worst in football and I'll be damned if Herm is allowed to stay another year.


You think I care about draft picks. As far as I am concerned, its a gamble. There's just as many 7th round picks excelling in the game as there are 1st and 2nd rounders. HERM, PUT IN THE PLAYERS THAT GIVE YOU THE BEST CHANCE TO WIN. WE HAVE GOTTEN DOMINATED BY THE OTHER TWO WORST TEAMS IN FOOTBALL.

Please join me in the cause to remove Herm Edwards. As a die hard Chiefs fan, he has made the worst decisions ever...I don't want to see you evaluate a QB in the 3rd week of the season Herm. PLAY THE PLAYERS THAT GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO WIN.
