    Default More on Herms Press Conference!


    0 Not allowed!
    Well, let it be known that it does not pain me in the least to

    make the following comment:

    Herm made a some very insightful, and productive comments in this

    weeks press conference.


    He compared the first 2 losses to being in a car wreck, but it

    was okay, because we all had on our seatbelts and we all walked

    away from it intact. We sent the car to the body shop and had the

    dents all banged out, and now we are back on the road again.

    He states that he is proud of the team remaining patient and

    making minor adjustments, because they have been doing really

    well at a lot of things. Also they have not had to play against

    themselves, the Chiefs football team, as well as the other team

    on the field.

    He was referring to the little mental errors (only 4 penalties

    against the Chargers) the team has caused to hurt themselves. He

    also acknowledged the fact that our kick return team has hindered

    our ability to get into the game early. Being backed up so many

    times, and then having penalties when we make great plays, is

    causing so many 3 and outs.

    At halftime he told the team that he thought they were doing very

    well. He said some of the players were looking at him like he was

    crazy, but most of them trust him enough to realize that he is

    always telling the truth. Well it looks like he was telling the

    truth.

    He explained some minor adjustments that needed to be made, and

    the players responded in the second half.

    He states that he is VERY surprised that DJ has only one

    interception, he expected him to have more with his god given

    talent, and that he will continue to improve in that area as

    well.

    He is particularly concerned about first possession three and

    outs. It is killing the ability of the team to get into a rhythm.

    He says Turley has a sore ankle but he will be ok (not sure if

    that means he will play or not) and that Chris Terry(?) did a

    great job filling in for Turley.

    He praised Rayner and said that he got the game ball for the game

    against the Chargers. Said he was one of the unsung heroes.

    He then goes on to give praise to the rest of the special teams,

    saying we have done well on kick return coverage, punt return

    coverage, and our punt returning has been done well also.

    He is a little concerned that the next two games, even though

    they are home games, the Jags and the Bengals come in after their

    by weeks. He says it gives their guys a little bit of time to

    heal up and get prepared. But it also could throw off their

    timing being out of it for a week.

    He thinks this game might be compared to the game last year

    against the 49ers where we got over that hump and went on a roll.

    Then we went to Pittsburgh without a bat (presumably he was

    comparing it to a brawl and we came without a weapon?) and it got

    ugly.

    He is very happy with Rayner making the long field goals. He said

    it is very important to make those long field goals because it

    keeps the defense from having to get back on the field with a

    relatively short field. He said he went up to Gun(ther) and told

    him they were going for that 49 yarder, and Gun(ther) was like

    "Ooohhh, I hope that kid makes it, and he did. It really helps

    the defense out having a consistent guy kick the ball. He said

    it shows how you feel about your defense when you need to kick

    the field goal, and that is a big reason he allowed him to make

    the kick, he has so much confidence in his defense.

    A reporter asked him about the FUMBLE at the goal line made by

    Tyron Brackenridge, and he said he looked at the tape and thought

    he crossed the goal line. He said he didn't have a problem with

    that, it was what he did after the TD. (I personally don't

    remember the celebration or whatever he did, I was in a typing

    frenzy keeping chief31 and others updated. So if anyone has taped

    the game, or watched that play again, let me know what he did.

    Also if that was a fumble, whas it Jared that picked up the ball

    in the endzone and looked back at Herm? One of the players did

    and I think that they should be given credit for the TD, if that

    is the case. Someone please let me know what happened. This sucks

    not having the game to replay!!!)

    He said he went to Tyron and told him "Listen, we don't do that here. That's not what we do. I realize some of it was just that he was a free agent, rookie and scored his first TD in the NFL, he didn't know what to do. He was just excited. I get that."

    He then was asked what he did when he scored the TD known as the Miracle at the Meadowlands. He said he was just reacting, but as soon as he slammed the ball he knew Dick V. was gonna be upset. He said I hope he didn't see it, and I hope nobody tells him about it. "I mean we won the game, and all I could think about was, Oh I hope Dick didn't see that!"



    Overall I was impressed with this weeks foray in to the Circus that is the KC media.



    This next statement also does not pain me to say:

    GOOD JOB HERM!!!

    I agree, I kinda think Herm does know what he is doing. Anytime a team struggles they lame it on one of two people. The head coach or the quarterback. I think were headed in the right dirrection and under good command! Glad you noticed.

    Brackenridge and a couple other guys from the defense were doing a dance in the end zone. It could have prompted a flag from the officials, but luckily did not. To me, it looked like he may have dropped the ball a tad early and I think Jared Allen was the one to pick it up but I could be wrong on that.

    I agree about the press conference. Herm's not perfect but I think most can agree that he is deeply commited to improving this football team and establishing the Chiefs as a legitimate contender. Also, it seems that Herm's focus right now is exactly where it needs to be-- our weakest areas most in need of improvement. It appears to me that a lot of people are gaining more confidence in Herm, myself included, but more importantly, the guys that play for him. It really seems that the Chiefs are starting to believe. Not only in their coach, but in themselves as well.
    Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!

    Herm did do a good job, but it took him loosening up on the Hermie-ball run, run, pass, punt routine. Don't get me wrong; not complaining at all in the least, and I hope he continues to change things up and do what works.

    I do as well. I think Solari has learned a few things in the early-goings of this season.
