I don't know why but for some reason this game has me much more upset then last week. Coming off a loss like the game last week was you would think this team would have come out with a fire and hunger to get things going the right way. Instead we get an effort that was even worse. For this Todd Haley gets the heat from me.
It's clear that this team is not and has not been ready for the NFL season. We can blame the lockout we can blame the injuries all we want. I might be more willing to accept those reasons if the Chiefs lost a couple of games late or just had a bad break or to throughout the game. But The job of a head coach is to have his team ready to play each and every week. That's something that Clearly Todd Haley has not done.
I am not saying that we need to fire him as soon as the plane hits down in KC. Put something on this team has to change and change fast. It's time to turn up the pressure on him. Haleys got to find the changes and MAKE them. If that means a qb change fine if that means a change in who calls the plays fine but whatever the change that needs to happen Haleys got to make it.
Anther thing that bugs me is the lack of fire I have seen from Haley this year. I know that a number of talking heads in the media have said he needs to keep his emotions in check. But I think that's part of made him a Divison winning head coach. Today he just stood there with a blank look on his face instead of getting after guys like he use to. Things going how they are going now he needs to get after people. One of the things that bugged me most about Herm Edwards was that he didn't get on the players as much. Yes it's a risk to do that as you risk loseing the locker room and creating a players vs coaches lockerroom. But players are more likely to get pissed off about a game that goes like today and DO SOMETHING about it if the coaches are letting them no it's not ok or acceptable to accept things like that.
When we first brought Haley in I was excited about him. I thought that he would be the guy to get the job done. Now I am starting to get that same feeling I had about Herm on day 1. I am starting to worry about who is coaching this team. I hope I am just overreacting. But when the season starts the way it has I think it's time to start looking and thinking about if we have the right head coach. I hope we do. I really hope we do. I like Haley but I am starting to wonder. I hope he proves me wrong to wonder the rest of the year.
