Chiefs Lose To Bucs 38-10


The Kansas City Chiefs are making a strong case for worst team in the NFL.

There is no way to sugarcoat it. The Chiefs continued to screw up any which way they could think of today in a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brady Quinn was at QB today instead of Matt Cassel, but the results were the same. His balls were just as poorly thrown and the offense was just as ineffective under his leadership. The Chiefs will now head into the Bye Week and if Cassel is healed, he may just get his starting job back.

Defensively the Chiefs did some things well, but their CBs couldn’t handle Tampa’s big receivers. Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams used their size to box out Brandon Flowers and Standford Routt. Even when the Chiefs had good coverage, the tipped balls seemed to come back down into the hands of the Buccaneer receivers.

Pretty much the only bright spot for the Chiefs came on a blocked punt which was returned for a TD when the Bucs punter tried an ill advised pass after recovering the ball.

The Bucs came out focusing on shutting down the KC running game. It worked.

The Chiefs now head into two weeks of soul searching.

For Chiefs fans, they’ll get to enjoy a Sunday of NFL football where they don’t have to watch KC’s atrocious play.

    I agree with everything except the accuracy part. Despite the two interceptions which were deflections of balls that should have been caught that Quinn ran the offense more effectivly than Cassel. The sad truth is that he is not the answer at QB either. While watching this game I discovered something I have never experienced before. I didn’t get mad or upset. I just expected things to happen just as they did. I don’t like the feeling or lack thereof.

    • ArrowFan

      The season is oficaly lost and over. Geno time. I don’t see the team that played today winning any games.

    • micah stephenson

      Now yall been tell me for a while that Cassel is holdin the team back. Today a 1st rd draft pic QB started but still the same results. Tipped passes for ints and crappy oline play. Cassel sucks. But Quinn sucks more and Stanzi suck most. We had a better chance of winning wit Cassel starting but we had to see it for ourselfs like we did in Palko.

      • Chiefswatch

        HAHA who the hell are you kidding. Cassel would have turned it over five times today. Its not like Quinn was responsible for the loss. Not saying he isnt shit just saying the loss wasnt on him like the baltimore one was on Cassel.

        • micah stephenson

          Hell ALL the losses are on cassel!!!! Its some people blaming this loss on Cassel!!!! Lol

          • Chiefswatch

            I just dont see how you can look at todays game and say we would have been better off with Cassel. Quinn at least threw with velocity, was mostly accurate, was not sacked, and as you pointed out the interceptions were at the least only 50% his fault for trying to force it. By comparison Cassel has been waaaaaaay worse. Shit the simple fact we were even on giveaway/takeaways speaks to that truth. You say you are off the Cassel band wagon, but your incessant Cassel rants prove quite the contrary.

          • micah stephenson

            Lol. Wow. Wen its Cassel its tipped passes are the QBs fualt wen its not Cassel tipped passes are partly the wrs fualt. Lol. Wow. Quinn had ZERO TDS/2 INTS PERIOD. 180 YRDS PASSING below Cassels avg. and we scored 10 pts against the wosrt pass d without they best CB. Thats y I think we had a better chance wit Matt. And Id like Geno Smith as the QB next yr but as far as thr Cassel bandwagon goes I know who the best QB is out of Matt, Brady & Ricky.

      • Danny W

        True
        I don’t think Quinn sucks worse though but do agree Stanzi sucks the most. All this does is confirm that we are lost without any leadership meaning Crennel, Pioli, and Quarterback. Losing like this for this long usually calls for house clean. What say you?

    • Danny W

      I’m so apathetic, I just laugh now when the Chiefs screw up. It’s sad and funny at the same time because it’s what I’ve come to expect. I’m not going to a single game this year. I’ll save my money Thanks though any way Hunt.

      • Chiefswatch

        Yea I no longer care to win. Every loss makes it more sure that Pioli and Cassel are names I will not have to speak next year. When we lose it makes me a little glad because I know it is stressing the hell out of Pioli and ruining his NFL GM career. Once he gets canned here nobody is ever hiring that loser to a GM position just like nobody will ever hire Haley to a HC position. Silver lining in everything

        • Danny W

          I don’t know man if it’s true that Hunt just offered him another two then I may have to turn in my Chiefs card, and wash my hands of it all. I just cannot find any hope in this guy man. Haven’t liked him since Tyson Jackson was drafted number three overall. I will give him Houston, and if Baldwin gets a chance then maybe him too. I hope Berry makes a comeback but they just use him poorly. A kicker is a kicker, I can’t give him Suckup really. The rest are just not locks as of yet that’s for sure. I want a new GM to pick my QBOTF.

          • Danny W

            And a new head coach.

          • micah stephenson

            Hunt can overide Pioli and tell him who to draft at QB. Hunt cant tell Pioli/Romeo I want these QBs in this oder. Geno, Barkley, Wilson….
            Im starting to think romeo is only cordinator material not head coach. Can we sign Bill Cower over the bye week?

          • Danny W

            Sure Hunt can override Pioli’s decisions, but why do that? If you don’t trust him to find your quarterback, and you need to tell him who to draft and then tell him to hire Cower, what is he getting paid to do? May as well let him go.

          • Doc

            Great idea to get Cowher for GM – but it will never happen. i think he has gotten too comfortable in the booth where he can bash all teams with impunity (not like when he was PIT’s HC). Clark Hunt will never go for a GM that will do it his way after experiencing the “Patriot Way.”

    • sdfu

      Only thing worse then a Chief loss is this butterball crying about his “feelings”; like he’s on Dr.Phil. For the raiders game in a few weeks, why don’t you curl up on the couch with your boyfriend and watch “The notebook” instead of the game? Otherwise take the bye week and clean the sand out of your vag,you sissy.

  • ArrowFan

    The pick six and the long TD pass just about sum it up the balls just don’t bounce are way. On both the plays the Chiefs where not out of possition or out played or out coached. The balls just are not bouncing their way. Now Daybull is going to need to get more creative on first down, so far my opion of him is not a favorable one.

  • sidibe

    This is a poorly coached team: mental errors, turnovers, penalties. I like RAC, would love to have him as DC but he’s is failing gloriously again as a HC. There is too much talent on this team for it to be this bad. The worst part is that if the news that Pioli was offered an extension is true, I don’t see much changing. I think good HCs (and perhaps Manning) stay away from KC because of him.

    • ArrowFan

      That said with the talent we have and the number 1 draft pick next year it might just be desireable enough for someone to over look Pioli.

      • BurtGummer44

        Enough with the “Talented Team” mantra. This team is not very talented, it is made up of busted draft picks and piss poor FAs. Geez, they’re setting records in how to lose and lose bad. Never had lead, and been behind by at least 18 points in every game. THIS TEAM SUCKS, and there is minimal talent beyond a handful of players.

        • Danny W

          I’m starting to agree Burt. How many bobbled passes that turn into picks along with fumbles so far. We lead the league in turnovers. It’s crazy town undisciplined and I think it starts with the coach and ends with the players.

  • chiefsfan4life

    I was so excited for football this year, now i dread sundays…

  • Chiefswatch

    Hopefully Cassel comes back. I really do not want there being any chance we win games going forward this year. Every win lessens the chance Pioli is packing his bags and Geno is suiting up in red.

    • micah stephenson

      We hav a better chance of losing more games by leaving Quinn as the starter the rest of the year. Mayby Romeo can tell the drs not to clear Cassel to play for the rest of the yr.

  • ArrowFan

    We are regressing and to think I thought our O’s ineptitude last year was some how Richardson’s and Palko’s fault. Daybull needs to let go who is there that can come in?

  • Nick Danger

    Pathetic a fellow chiefs fan at the bar today told me what I was thinking: They make it hard to justify coming out to watch.

    Poorly coached. Romeo has again risen to a level of incompetence. I don’t like having Carl Winslow as our head coach.

    • Doc

      Yeah, Pioli does kind of look like Erkel too!

  • micah stephenson

    It took yall a while to get story up today. I figured it was hard for u to come up wit sum n besides Cassel sucks. 2 more turnovas today, blame it on Cassel. The wrs tipping balls hav nothing to do wit it wen its Cassel throwing but today it was Quinn throwing so mayby jus mayby some blame will b put on the wrs. And like i been sayn this oline cant pass block. Yes we need a new QB but thats not all we need. Defense has only played 6 QTs of football this yr.

    • Chiefswatch

      Well the dex one was on dex, the Maneri was Quinn trying to force it and it bouncing off Maneri. Surprise Quinn sucks too. Yes the rest of the team played terribly. What you still do not get is that despite that getting a new QB is still priority number ONE. So the shit talking on Cassel is all warranted. He is playing the most important position in all of football and as such warrants the attention and criticism that comes with his sizable paycheck. We couldnt pay Carr 50 mill or Bowe 50 mill, but we dumped 63 million into that fuckers pocket. So what have we learned Micah? While the rest of the team also sucks nobody sucks worse than Matt Cassel. Also a good QB can overcome shit elsewhere (rodgers and a running game, brady and a defense). So keep talking your shit about people who do nothing more than comment on the obvious which is Cassel is terrible. Do we deny that the d was terrible today? or the play calling was atrocious? Nope.

      • micah stephenson

        If maneri was good he wud hav caught that. There is no QB available. Wen Pioli came hur we had 0-10 B.Croyle. Pioli cud use a 1st rd pic on Sanchez or a 2nd on Cassel. Sanchez is an unproven rookie and Cassel jus won 11 games his 1st yr starting and knows Piolis ways so he took a chance on Cassel. Yea he paid him 60 million, that 40-50% less than the top QBs are making. After a few yrs Pioli wants to upgrade so he wants manning but manning aint thinkn bout the kansas city CHEAPS or playn behind that oline wit our slow wrs. Orton says id rather b a back up than keep playin n kc. Out of the remaing free agent QBs Quinn looks good on paper and knows the system. So mayby he can draft a QB. Cant trade up high enuff for Luck or RG3 & fans say Tannehill sucks and Weeden is too old. So we will hav to use Cassel till next yr. I want the Chiefs to win to. I jus dont blame Cassel for everything and after this game now everyone else is not blaming him too. Its a team game. And the way the team plays now it wudnt matter if we had Jesus Christ at QB.

    • Danny W

      Come on now man. Sure it sucks to be wrong about a guy but your still kind of trolling around looking to argue with someone on here. All any wants if there honest is the Chiefs to win football games, nothing more nothing less.

      • micah stephenson

        I may hav been wrong about Cassel. Ill admit. I was wrong about Cassel. But I may b right about bad coaching, bad oline play, slow sloppy wrs, bad defensive play, bad special teams play,.. Im not looking to start an arguement, just speakin the truth

        • kcsparky

          No argument…..you’re dead on! Yet Cassel is a mediocre QB at best. Can’t handle pressure and very prone to bad pass read.

  • Danny W

    If Scott Pioli, Romeo Crennel, and the special teams coach aren’t fired soon there will be black outs in Kansas City. This team is a big time joke. I don’t see how we win four games.

    • Chiefswatch

      I keep thinking the same thing man but people just show up like clock work.

      • Danny W

        I’d go to a game if the tickets, beer, and nachos, were free and they gave me a brown paper bag to wear with holes for the eyes. Even then I would still probably hesitate.

        • micah stephenson

          Im go n to the next game. Its still the radiers. I dont care if we go 2-14 long as the 2 wins is against the raiders

          • Danny W

            Get a brown bag brother.

          • micah stephenson

            I aready hav a girlfriend. Lol

  • jimfromkcj

    When the schedule came out for this year, I said it was quite possible that the chiefs would be 0 and 6 at the break. I also said they might get to 8 and 8 at years end. I expected that the 3 acl guys would get back to full strength by the half way point and that the off line would be accustomed to playing together by then. I still think it is possible for 8 and 8. It is a long shot, but possible. Having said that, I think it would be beneficial if Pioli and Crennel would get the Ax in the off season. We need to get away from the Patriot way and start playing the Chief’s way. Make Marty the GM and get Al Saunders involved with the offence and get a def coord. who will install the 43 back. As for The kid from West Virg. I still think it is impossible to make someone the franchise QB who has a sensational one year resume. I really haven’t seen enough of the college QB’s to make a decision yet. I don’t much care for any of the Big 12 QB’s as I have seen most of them play and they haven’t impressed me. Maybe we won’t even get our QB this year. We need lots of help in other areas.

  • Chiefswatch

    Oh and another point no person bothers to make: Quinn is the backup. That is right Quinn gets next to zero reps in practice, has seldom worked with the first team, pretty much does what every other backup has done forever and that is not practice like the starter. So with that in mind coming out and not exactly lighting it up should not be so much of a surprise. With the level of ineptness found on the offense what is surprising is that he was not sacked, escaped pressure for positive yardage, threw to several receivers, had velocity on his throws, and was not the reason for his two interceptions outside of forcing one of them into some bad coverage. The fact that he was not a train wreck should make it somewhat obvious he was an upgrade over Cassel albeit like an upgrade from a bicycle to a moped.

    • Doc

      I have to agree with you. The play calling was more balanced this game. Quinn got all receiveres involved in the game. He was the backup and does nto get the reps the starter does. It takes time to develop timign and chemistry on the offense (much like the offensive line is experiencing now). Looking past the obvious loss I did see some godo things in the first quarter. Then things went dowhill from there. There is no team leader on this team. The coach does not know how to get control of this team to motivate them.

  • Navi

    We’re the first team since 1983 to not hold the lead at any time through our first 6 games.

    Who holds the record?

  • chiefsfan67

    It is time for Clark Hunt to march down to Tuscaloosa and sign every player from the Univeristy of Alabama to a nice contract!
