    Just read this...Fatlock is scared to believe in Thigpen. The Thig has 1 int in the last 4 games I believe?...and that int was forced as we were trailing trying to come back...and Fatlock says to thank Chan?....I thank Tyler for his decision making and not throwing 3 picks in a half like our upcoming visiting QB.

    Think about this way. Whitlock has been wrong about every single thing regarding the Chiefs for years now, except for his calls to fire CP. He was wrong about giving LJ the big contract extension. He was wrong about signing Ty Law. He was wrong about Herm. He was wrong about everything.

    Two months agao, he wrote that he didn't care if we lose all of our games this year. Two weeks ago, he wrote the Chiefs were on the right path. Last week, he wrote that the Chiefs put the L in Loser.

    To distract everyone from the knowledge that (a) Herm Edwards sucks; and (b) Jason Whitlock doesn't know what he's talking about, Whitlock has been writing intentionally incendiary columns like this one. That way, people say, "Can you believe Whitlock doesn't like Thigpen?" instead of "Whitlock's wrong about everything - let's stop reading him - he doesn't know about football."

    That it's working says something about his readership.

    I usually don't even read his stuff.
    Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!

    I don't think it has so much to do with Whitlock being a bad writer/analyst. It has more to do with what he's trying to do with his stories. Whitlock wants to make fans like us mad about what he says so we'll talk about it.

    But do not confuse that with his knowledge of the game. He makes some good points. Chan Gailey does deserve some credit. Point taken. However, you have applaud Thigpen for doing something with this offense. I used to think Brodie could be the Quarterback of the future. But when you look at Brodie and how he lost the starting position last year, nothing stands out more than his turnover to touchdown ratio.

    If Thigpen is doing well in this new offense, then keep the offense. Thigpen has been productive and does not turn the ball over as much. Thigpen does not have to be behind every down like other teams. The Chiefs need to find their own way to win. Re-sign Thigpen and save a draft pick instead of wasting it on an unproven talent.

    Whitlock's a sensationalist; the journalistic equivalent of a shock jock. His writing isn't particularly good, so he gets his buzz by intentionally upsetting everyone.

    At any rate, he's wrong. The offensive production has just as much to do with Thigpen as it does with Gailey. Gailey recognized, like many of us here, that opening up the playbook and utilizing Thiggy's legs could do wonders for the team.. but a more comfortable offense does not a quarterback make.

    Thigpen went from having no accuracy whatsoever in his passing game to threading the needle regularly downfield. His decision making has become more sound; he no longer throws the ball into the waiting hands of defenders with the frequency he once did... something that no play call can dictate.

    Chan has a chemistry with Thigpen who, in turn, has developed chemistry with Bowe and Bradley. Whitlock apparently can't comprehend that football is a team sport. It's a shame that someone with such little understanding of the game has maintained a job as a sports writer for so long.

    Oh he can comprehend it, the same way I can comprehend that he is "The Magic 8-Ball" that is always the opposite of right.
    That being:
    WRONG!
    If Fatty McRibkiller says getting a different franchise QB is the top priority, then I know with absolute certainty that my quest for a "Two-Man Hell On-Wheels Linebacker Pass Rush" is the Wave Of The Future, and get the contracts ready for signing, fatboy!

    DCS has spoken; MAKE IT SO!!!

    Ha! This is brilliant. It needs a name.

    The Jason Whitlock Opposition Theory: Everything that Jason Whitlock says is, in fact, the exact opposite of the truth.

    I think I used this same logic with President Bush over the past 8 years, but that's another story....
