Why? Why did Huard even start the second half? We all saw it coming. Two close interceptions, then a real one and then the fumble. Total game killer.
Croyle and Priest were the bright spots. Croyle did pretty well. He was a little excited and needs to settle down some. That will come with some more experience. Experience he should have had already. But Herm and the Huard lovers seemed to believe he gave us the "best chance to win." Well today Huard gave us the best chance to lose. Croyle has the throwing ability to zip passes into tight spots and throw it down field. I would like to see him scramble and run, as he didn't do much today, but I'm sure the play calling is conservative after Green's concussion last year. I'm relieved Huard is out and we can finally move on.
Priest was, well he was Priest! For being out two seasons the guy still has it. Considering how horrible the O line is, and how the running game was abandoned when we were behind, he had some good runs and catches. Kolby Smith sure didn't impress me. He looked like another LJ type of runner and just kept running straight and hitting the pile with little gain.
Kennison looked good and I'm glad to see him back. He, Bowe and Gonzales are a force. With Croyle getting the majority of the practice snaps now, Croyle should be able to develop a rhythm with them. Webb looked good too.
Unfortunately, this season is a wash. We may win the West, but will not advance any further in the playoffs. If the Chiefs can't win at home against Denver, Green Bay and Jacksonville we don't stand a chance on the road in the playoffs. But if the Broncos or Chargers finally turn it on, and we don't, we won't win the West. We'll be lucky if we finish 8-8 at this point.
