This team doesn't have it. Every time we had a good play or two last week, we immediately shot ourselves in the foot afterward. Penalties, missed field goals, and more penalties helped make the Chiefs their own worst enemy on Sunday. It was already hard enough for this team to have to play against the Titans. Playing against ourselves as well just made any outcome other than the 34-10 final an impossibility.
One could say the Titan's killed us on Sunday. I say that the Chiefs have put the gun to their own head. The Titans simply had to pull the trigger.
Any time a team is this ill-prepared and undisciplined, the fault lies squarely with the coaches responsible for fielding a competitive team. This is Herm's mess and we're probably going to have to hire a maid to clean it up.
So, when does this "rebuilding" process actually start? Next year? 2010? With veteran players getting frustrated and wanting out, it seems that Herm is still in the process of knocking walls out. He certainly hasn't put any new ones up.
Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!
This isn't a talented team that is miscoached. This is a talentless team that is miscoached.
Who on this team could start elsewhere in the NFL:
Flowers (future stud)
Waters (solid, solid LG)
Tony G. (best TE ever)
Albert (at RG, not LT)
Derrick Johnson (on bad teams)
Colquitt (best P in the NFL)
Bowe (as a 2WR)
Larry Johnson (maybe on the Seahawks, Lions, or Bengals)
That's eight out of 24 (K and P included). That's pathetic.
I thought Carr was living up to his hype?
Give Savage some guys capable of creating a proper wedge, and he'll be fine.
No running back, Charles included, can run through a solid wall. Holes must be made, and we just don't do that.
As it stands today anyway...
Well, I was only going by the starters, and those three aren't starters in the traditional sense. They could all find homes in the NFL, but not in the 24 main slots.
Carr is a very good slot CB, but I was counting Surtain and Flowers as the starters (just as Herm is).
Charles is also a backup. He may someday turn into a good third down back, but he isn't there yet. We won't be able to see if he is there without a line.
Savage may turn into a good returner, but again, we won't know for a bit.
