It was a defense for the ages.
Did you notice Marty in the booth? I think he wearing Chiefs red.
But I expect to start getting more pressure from the d-line before the season is up.
They look like they are trying to show some hustle, but compared to some other teams, they just don't seem to get enough pressure up front. Last week against the Raiders though, you could have called almost every interception because of the pressure they got on the QBs. Tonight, they were just average and I think Tomba and Derrick saved them from being completely abysmal.
One of Cassel's INT's wasn't his fault, went right of Baldwin's hands and into Weddle's. Granted the pass was high but I was always told if you can get a hand on the football you can catch it.
LOVED the game although I about had a heart attack several times. The thing that concerned me was the changes in rhythm in the offense. Did anyone else notice that? How do you put up 10 points in the first quarter and then have one first down in the 2nd quarter and that came with 17 or 18 seconds left in the half. These inconsistent drives are killing us!
Anyway, McClain is looking like Johnny Carson calling 5-3 at the season half point and we're 4-3 right now. Wonder what the swammy is calling for the second half of the season? I REALLY like our chances to win the division. The Raiders will be better but we'll be at home in what more than likely will be a must win game. We split with the Chargers and as long as we show up against Denver I don't see it being a horrible call saying we'll go 2-0 against them. Win, 2 or 3 more and that puts at 9-7 or 10-6 which I think would win us the division.
Like the players have I'm starting to buy in this season after an abysmal start. I was mainly complaining about Cassel after the first 3 games and he's shown me enough to say give me the rest of my humble pie.
All I know is moving forward we're going to need a consistent rhythm. Personally I love the fast paced, no huddle rhythm and we seem to move the ball down the field better that way. On a separate note, I wonder if Zorn is getting worked into offensive play calling. He sure did seem to be working with Cassel and the offense a lot last night or maybe I finally got to sit down and watch a game and see what he's normally doing....
on one thing last week was a little sad performance by him,but the man is getting the job done and as long as he's getting it done he's the man.If you relly don't like cassel the don't watch.Sorry but good or bad their my team and I stand by them not whine about them.GO CHIEFS:chiefs:
Whoa! I guess some folks watched a different game than I did on Monday. Cassel was throwing the ball short and long as good as anyone in the league. The two INTs were balls put where only the receiver could get it in his hands and were dropped. The 2 empty quarters were caused by Haley or whoever was calling plays at that time going into prevent offense-ala Schottaleadenheimer. Cassel doesn't call his own plays. He wants to air it out-that's what the argument with Haley was about. You think he's not sick of dump passes? If any of you haters actually watched the game, you would've noticed when given the green light he was throwing like a muthafudger. If Haley wants to go conservative, that's on him, but when Cassel was given the keys in OT, he got it done and done well against a(by the way) pretty darn good defense.
