    Chiefs are a joke right now

    By JASON WHITLOCK

    The Kansas City Star


    Now what?
    The Chiefs lost their fragile and fraudulent quarterback of the future, exposing the irresponsibility of opening the season with a quarterback depth chart Rockhurst High’s Tony Severino would find objectionable.
    Now what?
    Today, the Chiefs will likely deal with the ramifications of their unrepentant malcontent/running back's latest brush with the law and a woman. I'm sure Larry Johnson spent part of Sunday palling around with friends, laughing at KC's pathetic Johnson-less offense and contemplating what action NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will take against him.
    Now what? Where do the Chiefs go from here? How do they define themselves and move forward after Tennessee blanked them for three quarters, embarrassed them for four and routed them 34-10 at Arrowhead Stadium?
    There were no answers inside Kansas City’s locker room. There were plenty of stunned, silent looks and quick exits. You can’t blame them. There were few relevant, probing questions to be asked.
    All the answers had been provided during three hours on the field.
    Coming off a bye week filled with drama, acrimony, Brodie Croyle-inspired optimism and a get-tough deactivation of Johnson, Herm Edwards and his coaching staff bombed in a way that makes their employment here next season indefensible.
    By declining to draft or acquire a quarterback to compete against Brittle Croyle and elevating clock-management specialist Dick “Father Time” Curl to oversee the most important position on any football team, Edwards tethered himself to Croyle.
    When Croyle limped off the field with a season-(career)-ending knee injury early in the second quarter, Herm might as well have grabbed a pair of crutches and retired to the locker room with his Arena League QB of the future.
    It’s over — the Croyle experiment, the Herm-driven rebuilding process and the Peterson-approved redistribution of Hunt family wealth. All good and bad things end, and the Titans literally ran over (332 yards on the ground) the remains of the Peterson era.
    What we’ve witnessed this season in general — and the last two weeks in particular — is unacceptable and unprofessional. In its five losses, Kansas City’s opponents outscored Herm’s boys 147-42. The Chiefs’ lone victory — a 33-19 romp over the Broncos — was such an obvious fluke that it revealed nothing about the rebuilding effort.
    The Chiefs are a joke right now. They have as little credibility as the Royals. The ownership is timid at a time when boldness is required. This is not a call to fire Peterson or Edwards today. It’s a call that Clark Hunt acknowledge that no progress is being made.
    After Sunday’s performance, I’ll vouch for the professionalism and skill of one player on the roster. Tony Gonzalez is a winning player. Every other player is a mystery.
    Kansas City’s offensive line is so inept that it is difficult for me to discern whether Pro Bowl guard Brian Waters is effective. I know that Rudy Niswanger, Adrian Jones and Damion McIntosh are not players a team can win consistently with in the starting lineup.
    Also, I know that first-round pick Glenn Dorsey has been a bust through six games. I’ve watched film, and his footwork is horrid. He catches on run plays and tries to win a bench-press contest. An NFL lineman wins or loses the battle with his first step. Dorsey’s first step is slow and often misdirected. He hasn’t mastered the explosive, violent, 6-inch control step. I’ve seen Dorsey drop his foot back. I’ve seen him step the wrong direction.

    No offense, but if Jason Whitlock really understood how to win an offensive line battle, he would done more than play at Ball State, END of STORY.

    Now I am dissapointed with the entire defensive line, but Dorsey is still a rookie. He is also playing in the NFL. I think Dorsey knows what works better in the NFL than some writer living on his pathetic personal history as the right way things should be done.

    Everyone always jumps on Whitlock because he says negative things. Most of the time they're true people! As for Dorsey, I agree with Whitlock in that he hasn't been great so far, but he has shown that he can be good at times. He'll get better in time.

    Whitlock said, "After Sunday’s performance, I’ll vouch for the professionalism and skill of one player on the roster. Tony Gonzalez is a winning player. Every other player is a mystery."

    He forgot about Dustin Colquitt, ha.

    And I hope they start giving Jamaal Charles more carries and see how often he can deliver nice runs for us with that speed. He had one agaisnt the Titans but they handed off to him like what 3 times?

    Dorsey will take a couple years to get used to the NFL. That isn't a knock on him. All DTs not named Warren Sapp or Albert Haynesworth tend to take a few years. It doesn't help that Dorsey gets no help on the line.

    This, of course, is a reason not to draft DT high and pay megabucks for the learning curve. But we didn't hire Petersen for his football knowledge anyway.

    You see, that should tell you how bad this team is when your punter is practically your mvp every week.

    I can see why Chris Johnson is way better than Charles....Chris has the ability to be patient, he takes short choppy steps in between tackles and in high traffic areas. Then when the crease opened..BAM..gone like grease lightening. I hope Charles was watching.

    Agreed. And it also shows that the special teams often get forgotten about for Whitlock to overlook Colquitt.

    Chris sure did well, but part of the problem was our defense providing these creases and gaping holes as well as playing too much "two hand touch" instead of "tackle" football.

    Its also one of those positions that you would rather not have to rely on. If you are punting it means that you failed to execute on offense. No one wants to call attention to the fact that we have to have a great punter to even be involved in games.

    Good point. In the Faders game this past weekend against the Jets, the announcers were mentioning how good the Raiders punter is and one of them said he still thinks former Raider punter Ray Guy is the all time best. I remember in the 70's how good Ray Guy was and how he got raved about. But the difference is that Oakland also had winning teams (sometimes Super Bowl) during Ray Guy's career. Thus it was easier for them to embrace the excellence of Ray Guy (vs. us for Dustin Colquitt).
