While they were flipping, we were at home flipping out.
Good. We called the Browns about Brady Quinn. The news–good or bad, depending on your POV on Quinn–is that they didn’t bite. But the good news for all Chiefs fans is that the Chiefs’ brass seems to finally have realized that our quarterbacks do and always will utterly blow. The scary thing is that I really think that they approached this season believing that Brodie Croyle and Tyler Thigpen had legitimate franchise QB potential. I’d be less scared if I thought they were just being cheap.
Tyler Thigpen is bad. Elvis Grbac was bad, but an Elvis impersonator is even worse. I’m all shook up. Since he runs so well (and that’s all he does well), let’s run him out of Kansas City. That pick six was a disgrace.
Paging Derrick Johnson. Paging Derrick Johnson. If we wanted someone to pay some one millions to run around fast and whiff on tackles, we’d play Napoleon Harris.
Good thing Jamaal Charles didn’t stay in track and go to the Olympics. He definitely would have dropped the baton. On the other hand, he is fast.
Iron Man haters, step back. Larry Johnson played extremely well today despite having only two lineman who were worth a damn (Branden Albert and Brian Waters) and no complimentary passing game to speak of. Give him 20-25 carries (24), this is what you’ll get. Twice the carries as last week, about 10 times the production. You gotta feed him the rock, Cherm.
I hate to say I told you so, but on Matt Ryan, yeah, I told you so. Homeboy is a player. A little Peyton, a dash of Roethlisberger, etc…he could be something special.
Ow, that hurt like hell. What you say? I just jumped off the Rudy Niswanger train.
I love Bernard Pollard and Jarrad Page, but on obvious passing downs they both can’t be left alone as the last line of defense back there–too slow. Either take Pollard out altogether and move Page to SS and DaJaun Morgan to FS, or do the same except play Pollard at nickel or dime backer. Hell, he tackles better than our linebackers do anyway.
Glenn Dorsey, Tank Tyler and Turk McBride, I saw some good signs. While I was impressed with both Swamp Thing and TNT, I wasn’t impressed with Brian Johnston and Tamba Hali. Both got pushed around too much it seemed.
Tony Gonzalez, again, we’re sorry for this. Not fair. Not at all. On your Hall of Fame bust it should say that you made it despite the play of your QBs, not because of them. I’m going to actually request that.
Pat Buchanan could do what Pat Thomas has done out there thus far.
Depressing. Just depressing. On the flip side, and this must be mentioned, we are one step closer to the No. 1 overall pick and firing Harm Edwards.
