I had another great day at Arrowhead last Sunday!
Everything was fabulous but the football.
What disturbs me about Sunday’s game, and the current state of the team, is our lack of aggression.
The Chiefs are very tentative on offense as evidenced by the fact that our longest completion Sunday was 15 yards. They simply can’t get away with that when their running game is in the shape it is in. Though Battle is serviceable, the absence of Charles hurts. If they are going to run short routes and dives between the tackles, they are never going to move the ball. The donkey butts stacked the box and put constant pressure on our hero Matt Cassel.
Defensively, the Chiefs are even less aggressive, which is absurd. It is a bend-but-don’t-break philosophy.
Romeo is one of the best defensive coaches in the league. I have to believe he has more imagination than this. We have zero exotic blitz packages. Why is he being so passive?
Watching the Chiefs play football the last two weeks has been an absolutely miserable experience.
Change is needed, and I say bring it on.
I am sorry Matt Cassel is hurt; I would not wish that on anyone. But Matt recently reminded us that situations like this are the reason he was able to move from a backup role with New England to a starting QB in Kansas City.
All in all, it should be an interesting weekend. The upcoming games, I believe, will seal Matt Cassel’s future with the Kansas City Chiefs and the NFL in general.
I’m just not optimistic for him.
So what do you think, Addicts? Will Matt be taking the snaps next year? I say no. What about Haley? I say the next training camp will see another head coach as well.
