    Default Game 10 thoughts/rant about the WR core

    The good
    The chiefs didn't get blown out like many thought

    Alex Smith played well overall

    The defense made a number of stops held manning to 1 passing td

    The bad

    Our WR core It sucks. You can call me negitive but I'm just calling it like I see it. This is not a one night bad night thing. This has been something that has happened all year long. It was what largely cost the Chiefs the ball game. They couldn't get open. And to me something that I'm starting to see more and more of with them if they don't get open right away they just stop and start watching Alex. That's not going to get the job done. Quiting on the play is just not going to work. If this WR core can't get their together this team isn't going to head anywhere. Again you can call me negitive all you want but that's just how I fell about the WRS on this team right now. They just are NOT getting the job done. People will bash Alex but he CAN NOT catch the ball for these guys. That's not his job. Alex misses some throws yes every QB does just like every team has drops but this team has way to many drops and it's costing the offense like they did tonight. I'm growing tired of this. This team is so close to being able to compete for a title but the WRS are slacking off on the job and they don't seem to care.

    Sums it up very well, Matt. A better functioning Offense -- especially the WR's -- and it's a totally different ball game tonight.

    Dorsey/Reid will not stand pat on the this WR group come this offseason. They will go after playmakers & get rid of the current slackers. Also need a healthy and blossoming Kelce to help at TE.

    And you make an excellent point that the WR's just quit on a play and do not try to run to open areas to help Alex Smith out and this has been discussed to death by Len Dawson all season long as well as their inability to get separation from defenders.

    I have to totally disagree with that, dude. IMO, he regressed tonight. He acted nervous, confused and overwhelmed a lot of times. Also he held on to the damn ball too much and got sacked for it.

    I was not very excited when we traded two 2s for Smith. For the record I was quite pumped at the rumors that we might go after Nick Foles. But I'm far from an Alex hater. He is a distinct upgrade over Cassel and has my support. So my criticism here is unbiased.

    I totally agree with this.

    Avery might have been a good receiver, once upon a time. But he is the WR's version of Thomas Jones when we got HIM, a has been.

    D-Bowe who has always been one of my favorite players seems to have lost his desire and runs lazy routs. Maybe the big contract brought out the LJ in him. I certainly hope not. We all know his not a separator. His fote is the physical catch. But there were many times tonight that I screamed at the screen when he didn't put up more an effort to secure some hard catches. A super star WR makes the hard catches. Some of the balls thrown at him were not great, but man, THAT'S WHY YOU GET THE BIG MONEY!!!

    For the life of me I'm at a loss as to why Hemingway doesn't see more time. Every time he has played he has shown good hands. I just don't get it.

    The good (added to yours)

    Eric Fisher played a solid game against 58. He seems to be starting to get comfortable. The sack he gave up against Wolfe was bad, but I don't remember any other bad moment about him. Some good moments actually come to mind.

    The Bad

    We had more 1st rounders on the lines both side of the ball than they did. So tell me why our high draft pick O-line and D-line could not dominate theirs!

    What worries me about Alex Smith is in the last minute we had 2 plays to throw Hail Marys and that idiot dumps the ball to Jamal Charles both times. So mad that he made everyone's views about him seem a lot more likely even though I've defended him several times. Is he putting his ball control stats ahead of chances to attempt to win?

    It's time to dump Avery. I think that's why we signed Williams though. I believe they're just giving him time to learn the playbook

    I don't think there is any way Foles is going anywhere. But that's just me. And Andy as far as I know still belives in Alex Smith

    The rest I have to strongly disagree with. I will agree with you I thought we gave up to much for Alex but I didn't see him regress at all. I saw him make a number of throws that could have and should have been caught. That were dropped if they were caught that's a different ball game. And the Chiefs don't punt as often as they did. Alex was also running for his life at times which doesn't help and he advoid some sacks that were from instant pressure. There are some throws I'll grant you he could have and should have made but overall I thought he played well I'll agree to disagree with you there.

    I agree with you 100% here.

    Which is why I don't think You can say Alex regressed.

    There was a play that when NBC showed the Denver coverage on the WRs on replay I watched as they showed our WRs 1 by 1 they each ran there rout and then just stopped like who cares when they didn't get open right away. The wr core on this team is junk right now and right now I really don't see it getting better this season. They just don't have anyone who has shown they can step up outside of Bowe when he wants to which isn't very often now that he got paid

    Not anymore he isn't. I was talking about last off season when it looked like Andy wanted to bring him to the Chiefs and the talk was Foles was not a good fit for Chip Kelly's offense.
