    Default Can this team be saved with what we already have?

    If I was Pioli, I would make the following changes in an attempt to turn this thing around with what we already have on this roster:

    Coaches -
    HC: Jim Zorn
    OC: Maurice Carthon
    DC: Emmitt Thomas

    Offense -
    QB: Brady Quinn
    RB: Shaun Draughn
    FB: P. Hillis
    C. : R. Hudson
    LT: B. Albert
    RT: E. Winston
    LG: J. Allen
    RG: D. Stephenson
    TE: T. Moeaki
    WR: J. Baldwin
    WR: D. Bowe

    Defense (back to 4-3) -
    DT: D. Poe
    DT: J. Powe
    DE: G. Dorsey
    DE: T. Jackson
    LB: T. Hali
    LB: J. Houston
    LB: D. Johnson
    SS. E. Berry
    FS: A. Elam
    CB: B. Flowers
    CB: J. Arenas

    Obviously, bring in Charles for Draughn when he is healthy, or use a combo of both. And, of course, get McCluster in there for 3 wide receiver sets, and maybe even to return kicks.

    After 2 consecutive blowout losses - why not?
    SHUT IT

    No Brady Quinn

    I agree we are better suited to run a 43 from the players natural abilities. After this week no matter the outcome IMO its still too early to implode the system we have been building for four offseasons. Pioli should demand we have seperation between HC and DC if there is not a tangible change this week.

    THIS I am really down on Romeo right now just as I was Haley Romeo clearly didn't learn the lesson that you need a DC it's to much in todays game for most coaches to be 2 things. It was to much for Haley I am real disappointed that he is remaining DC
    ​BAN ROY

    The biggest problem on O for the Chiefs is Cassel followed by the OL. The realization that Cassel is nothing more than a glorified back is setting in. Looks like the Raiders and Chiefs are heading towards the Matt Barkley sweep stakes.

    Best tradition:... I have to go with the Oakland Raiders. How can that be disputed? ...Everyone equates the colors Silver and Black with the Raiders. There’s Al Davis, who has been with the franchise for 48 years. There are all the great Hall of Fame players,...There’s the three Super Bowl titles. You think of the AFC West, and you think of the Raiders.

    I couldn't agree more. Dwayne needs to shut up and act like he's been there before. BTW, you are getting paid to catch balls. Why don't you point to your name every time you make a nice downfield block. I'd actually be OK with that.

    Does anyone else see the irony in a RAIDERS fan telling us what is wrong with the Chiefs offense! Seriously, go fix your own **** team.

    Way too early to blownthings up IMO. Plus we dont have the personnel for a 4-3. Dorsey and Jackson are NOT DEs in a 4-3 they are DTs. IF we went to a 4-3, the DEs would be Hali and Houston. Remember Hali is a converted DE.

    It wouldn't work with the current roster I agree with your post. Say hypothetically what do you think about adding the few missing pieces and scrapping this NT issue that has plagued us since we switched to the 34 though?

    I think we are better suited to stay 3-4 and wait a year for Poe to fill that role. Honestly, he has played better than I expected him to so far. I think he will fill that role fine next year, and excel the following years. But it has only been 2 games, so it is hard for me to really say what would be best. I think we should wait and see. If we are 0-4, 0-6 then I would say we should start considering drastic changes.

    Personnel wise, I think we are well built for a 3-4, its just the coaching has suffered. I want to see how things go the next couple weeks. In another thread the only changes I made were giving Crennel an ultimatum. Fix the D by week XX or force him to make Emmit Smith the DC.
