A Quiet Camp … Thursday Cup O’Chiefs

From River Falls, Wisconsin

The Chiefs are getting ready to break camp here in the northwoods.

Pause with me for a moment and think about the last three weeks. Can you remember a single thing that any of the 80 bodies wearing Chiefs uniforms has said during the team’s stay here?

I’m still pondering. Except for a brief trip to Canton, I’ve been here for every practice, every press conference and have seen and heard most everything that the players have uttered for public consumption.

I can’t think of a thing that caused a headline or a stir. First-round pick Tyson Jackson had the quietest contract negotiations in Chiefs history. Players who didn’t pass their conditioning test were not allowed to practice. There was grumbling among the veterans, but it was done under their breath.

No off-field incidents have reached the media. Doesn’t mean there haven’t been any, or that there have been any. There just haven’t been any headlines.

It’s been very quiet … and that’s just what Pioli/Haley wanted in their first camp. The only voice that’s been heard here in the Falls is that of the head coach. Of course, he has met almost daily with the media since the team landed here on July 30th, so his exposure the scribes, throats and hairdos has been far greater than anyone else.

There have been issues and items of a controversial nature that have popped up in camp. Veteran players have grumbled about the contact, about all the running and about Haley’s loud and public rebukes for mistakes and missteps. All that has come off-the-record. There’s the Dwayne Bowe’s been demoted story that has been made into a big deal, yet we’ve yet to hear any comments from Bowe.

Veteran players have been yanked in and out of the starting lineup. They have nothing to say publicly.

Really the only comments from camp that have caused any type of commotion have come from Haley himself. As a first-time head coach, Haley has been careful with his words, going all the way to his opening press conference in February. Since then, he’s grown far more comfortable talking with the media and has displayed a sense of humor and a self-depreciating outlook that make the daily sessions a bit less stiff.

When some read or heard his comment from Tuesday about the Brett Favre situation with the Vikings – “I’m just worried about this house; it’s on fire and I’m just trying to keep it from burning down” – they reacted negatively. But Haley said it with a smile on his face, and the media recording his words took it as another bit of self-depreciating humor.

But one thing Haley said on Tuesday started a brush fire that the young coach will learn from and will help him in the future. Whenever the subject is quarterbacks, the head man always has to be careful about what he says. Something he said this week was translated as a slam on Matt Cassel and before long, there were rumors floating around the NFL grapevine that Cassel was in trouble and Brodie Croyle could be the Chiefs starter.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Cassel and Croyle have both struggled at times in practices here in River Falls. Because he was knocking off some rust after almost nine months of being unable to practice, Croyle started very poorly and has improved his play.

Haley was asked about the play of all his quarterbacks on Tuesday, and whether he was concerned with how they were performing.

“I think in general across the board for us to have a chance we’re going to have to play pretty good football,” is how Haley started his answer. “I don’t know that anyone can play perfect but we’re going to have to play error-free; we’re not going be able to beat ourselves whether it’s poor throws, penalties, turnovers, whatever.

“I’m always concerned with the quarterback. I thought today we threw the ball around a little bit … I thought in the passing games there were some positives.”

Haley was then asked if Cassel was the best quarterback in camp.

“I’ll hold out on answering that right now,” Haley said.

That answer set off warning bells. Had Haley added one more sentence, something along the lines of “It wouldn’t be fair to the quarterbacks because they are all working very hard and making progress” his unwillingness to endorse Cassel would have fluttered into the stack of NFL clutter.

A day later, that’s essentially what Haley did when he was asked whether his comment indicated he was unhappy with Cassel.

“No, I don’t think that’s the case at all,” Haley said. “The question you were referring to, I think, was has he been the best quarterback. My response to that was this is a full-time evaluation. I mean it’s everything that is going on, so you have game situations which one quarterback’s situation may be a little bit different than another’s. The plays called may be different; there are a lot of things that go into the equation that I don’t think it’s fair to any of those guys to answer that question.

“It had nothing to do with my feelings towards anybody. I think that Matt is working hard, is into it, he cares about it. This is training camp and you’re trying to evaluate a lot of guys: running backs, receivers, tight ends; the whole deal. My response was more to be fair to all those guys.”

Nobody, not the fans, not the players, and especially not the Hunts, want to hear anything but platitudes about their $63 million franchise quarterback. But Haley is intent on holding to his stated position that all starting jobs are open, and yes he’s aware that fuels questions about how well Cassel is performing.

“You can make out of that what you want, but what I’ve told this team is every spot is open and I’m going to stay true to my word and we’re going to evaluate every spot and the guys that give us the best chance to win on opening day will be in the starting lineup,” Haley said. “I’m sticking to my word, that’s all.

“I think that Matt is getting more and more comfortable with what we’re doing out there.”

On August 20, 1978 the Chiefs dropped a pre-season game to the New England Patriots in Foxboro, 24-7. RB Mark Bailey’s 21-yard run was t he only score for the Chiefs. QB Mike Livingston was 10 of 16 throwing the ball for 137 yards, but threw two INTs. WR Larry Dorsey caught three passes for 55 yards and QB Tony Adams caught his own pass after it was deflected for minus 18 yards.

SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY …

Born on August 20, 1978 in Douglass, Kansas was LB Monty Beisel. He joined the Chiefs as a fourth-round selection in the 2001 NFL Draft out of Kansas State. Beisel played four seasons with the Chiefs (2001-04), appearing in 55 games, with nine starts and contributing 86 tackles, 3.5 sacks, one interception and 58 tackles on special teams. He signed with New England as a UFA in 2005, moved on to Arizona the next season and returned to the Chiefs as a UFA this year.

Born on August 20, 1942 in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania was OL Tony DiMidio. He joined the Chiefs as a ninth-round draft choice in the 1964 AFL Draft out of West Chester State. DiMidio played two seasons with the Chiefs (1966-67), appearing in 26 games.

Born on August 20, 1961 in Corrigan, Texas was DE Ray Woodard. He joined the Chiefs in the 1987 season after playing earlier in the year in Denver. Woodard appeared in five games with the Chiefs in that ’87 season. It was his last playing time in the NFL.

    I really hope that he sticks to his word. If Cassel isn’t ready for this system, or if Croyle or Thiggy are better, then let them start. Cassel can have another shot at it next season. I just like how Thiggy can pull anything together and move the chains. Then he moves them again…and again. Croyle looked great out there Saturday, and I’m not a Brittle Brodie fan. Just a wierd fact…..Did anyone know it was John Brodie Croyle?


  • August 20, 2009  - Chris_Texas says:

    As I’ve said like this Coach more and more thanks for the quote Bob.

    HALEY: “You can make out of that what you want, but what I’ve told this team is every spot is open and I’m going to stay true to my word and we’re going to evaluate every spot and the guys that give us the best chance to win on opening day will be in the starting lineup. I’m sticking to my word, that’s all.”

    Love it don’t care what you get paid, who the media, fans or even Rin Tin likes I’m playing who is playing the best. Don’t like it there’s the door put up or shut up!

    Go Chiefs

    ummmm Cassell had two ball dropped should have been caught. Brodie plays with Dbowe and against second team defense….Give Cassell weapons when he is in there and he will do just fine.


  • August 20, 2009  - Harold C. says:

    It’s amazing how often the media blows things out of proportion (except for you Bob of course) to make something more news worthy.


  • August 20, 2009  - get real says:

    A quiet camp is what one expects from a professional organization. It is about time probably 10 years late. The only thing bad is all the wasted space by we bloggers who know little that goes on. Even Bob, now that he is not an insider. Maybe we can just enjoy some football.


  • August 20, 2009  - gorillafan says:

    Lorenzo Neil anyone? I know hes getting up there in years, and I dont know his age, but you think he can help this team still? We been missing a good full back since they let T-Rich go.

    Harold C. says:
    “It’s amazing how often the media blows things out of proportion…”

    No! Really? Ha! You’re right on, Harold. Too much BS…and very little reality. If there’s no story…they make one up. Or take a “tidbit”, and fill in the rest themselves. Gotta’ have something to do, I guess. And the sad thing is…people generally eat it up. You can put something that is complete and total BS in print…and there will be people that believe it.

    get real says:
    “Maybe we can just enjoy some football.”

    A big AMEN to that. Let’s see what we’ve got when the games start counting…when it’s for REAL. Bring on the season!!!

    But if the Raiders let him go, he must not have much left in the tank still…

    Hard to say, gorillafan. When have the Raiders been known to do the smart/right thing?


  • August 20, 2009  - Rin Tin Tin says:

    Real Rin ® :cool: daddy-o

    Coachspeak- er, rather the ‘coach’ speaks:

    “has he been the best quarterback. My response to that was this is a full-time evaluation”

    - translation: Ca$$el has clearly NOT wowed KC’s Head Coach for as he himself said the evaluation is still going on – Mutt has FAILED to separate himself from the others.

    Competition? Well if tis still ongoing as :roll: suggests then that just serves to affirm Ca$$el has won nothing & has NOT been able to put any distance between himself & the competition any – game 1 vs Houston last Saturday being exhibit A. In fact, beyond merely treading water, he looks to be losing ground via drowning in a tidal wave of expectations others/mediocrity his own making.

    On the other if ‘check’ isn’t being sincere then he is a … well, thespian Jim Carrey starred in a movie of the requisite title not too long ago.

    When you’re paying a player $63 million or $ome variation of zero$, and too his competition is Tyler Thigpen and Brodie Croyle – two QB’s who inspired such confidence the Chiefs felt a need to bring in a Mutt – the signs do not bode well for money well spent on KC savior from the East.
    ‘These’ be the facts – Rin reports, convenience as saving face if not truth shall decide, end.

    “My response was more to be fair to all those guys.”

    - wow…such pseudo psycho-babble/coachspeak. Oh ‘to be fair’- fair? :roll: ? Right. ‘check’ No; a Gunga Din portends he perhaps though.

    This be motivation appearances sake – sake being appearance a level playing field an hoped desire. Wise men, like Rin as a Bob G among a few others know & have thus said it is not so vis a vis KCs QB parade 2009, least not at the outset.

    Catch a Croyle and Thigpen a reflective moment… ask each what they rate the odds either being the starter come game 1 regular season (shy an injury that ’63 Love Affair’. One doesn’t have to intuit very far to discern an implied hoped for more so expected outcome the coach…the players too are no dummies. Some of the fans ‘check’? To be sure.
    Tis why a Rin is here to ‘help’ you toe the line.

    “I think that Matt is getting more and more comfortable with what we’re doing out there”

    - which by deduction equates with the Money Pit ‘not’ having been comfy afore/to date.

    “what I’ve told this team is every spot is open and I’m going to stay true to my word and we’re going to evaluate every spot and the guys that give us the best chance to win on opening day will be in the starting lineup” Haley said. “I’m sticking to my word, that’s all.”

    - uh huh…right. ‘check’ We shall see :roll: coach…we shall see.

    What Rin can see happening (this be called the party line aft consultation everyone gets their story straight) is something along the lines of “we as an organization just feel that he gives us the best chance of winning, and after all is said and done that is what you’re looking for.” Ca$$el wins via the international $ign of a man not in di$tre$$ (choking on $aid optional.)

    - – - – - – - -

    Tony DiMidio: an OT forced to play C in 1967 due to a rash of injuries at the center position (at least 4 guys: Gilliam, Frazier, Hudock, DiMidio; LB EJ Holub was already injured or else he could have played C.)

    I hated 1967 – twas the best of times, twas the worst of times; and cherish it fore’er & always shall I.

    - – - – - – - -

    That AFL game on Augsut 20, 1966 was a rare treat – a double-header game wherein fans got to watch four teams play that afternoon into evening.

    Alas, wouldn’t happen today circa 2009: there’d be no (as in not enough) money in it.

    :lol: & :razz:


  • August 20, 2009  - Scott says:

    Yeah…it’s simply amazing how you “wise men” can evaluate a QB’s future game preformance on pactice, and three possesions in the first preseason game.


  • August 20, 2009  - ILChiefsFan says:

    gorillafan,
    I had the same thoughts you did when I saw that Neal was cut loose, but then I saw that he’s 38 years old! Even for this team I think that’s a little old.


  • August 20, 2009  - Rikki-Tikki-Tavi says:

    Keep up the great work Matt Cassell. ALL of KC is behind you and we know that you will lead us back to glory very soon now.

    AND NOW, Todd Haley has affirmed Matt’s The Man!


  • August 20, 2009  - Rin Tin Tin says:

    5 game series/parts thereof had Mutt game 1 – not 3…make a note of it (Rin knows you will.)

    heh heh heh!

    :lol: & :razz:


  • August 20, 2009  - Scott says:

    Well…that explains it, then. No wonder you “wise men” have completed your evaluation. I stand corrected.


  • August 20, 2009  - True KC Fan says:

    The problem is everyone in the media wants to write the story before there’s a story.

    Keep up the hard work Todd. Im good with who ever you pick to start at all positions.


  • August 20, 2009  - SG says:

    “Well…that explains it, then.”

    We’re both guilty lately of feeding the troll. :yawn:


  • August 20, 2009  - ILChiefsFan says:

    I think Cassel only went three series. There’s something wrong with the NFL gamebook on the Houston game. If Cassel went more than 3 series (as the gamebook says) then he had to have more than 5 pass attempts.

    I was streaming the KCFX broadcast and also following the NFL.com “gametrack” for this game. Several plays that the Chiefs broadcasters were attributing to Croyle were being attributed to Cassel by the NFL. I watched the replay on NFL Network on Sunday, but forgot to note when Croyle came in.


  • August 20, 2009  - Rin Tin Tin says:

    Obviously, Mutt had nary enough chances be it 3, 5 or had it been 100; he stunk like Lindberger cheese.

    :cool: daddy-o


  • August 20, 2009  - Scott says:

    True, SG. True. And I know better.

    You know that old saying “Never enter a battle of wits with an unarmed man”? I really should follow that advice.


  • August 20, 2009  - ILChiefsFan says:

    Before: “Cassel went 5 series, not 3! Cassel went 5 series not 3!”… ad nauseum

    After: “It doesn’t matter how many series Cassel went!”


  • August 20, 2009  - steve says:

    RTT0w, we all know that Hall of Famer Len Dawson is the best quarterback in franchise histroy, but can Matt beat his personal record of ints. in a single game? All qbs. throw ints., see Favre, the measure is how they respond.

    What you have never grasped is that most fans are aware that this is a rebuilding year. It did not matter if Herm or Todd were heading it up. The powers that be, decided the upside in Todd exceded Herm’s. Kind of like Herm did, when as coach of the Jets, he forced his way out for a better op. in K.C.. How did that work out for him.


  • August 20, 2009  - Scott says:

    And if he went 20 for 20, with 500 yards and 10 TD’s…you’d STILL be ragging on him. Blah, blah, blah.

    Damn. Did it again.


  • August 20, 2009  - Rin Tin Tin says:

    For the record, Ca$$el played 4 series – I just checked the tale of the tape, mine.

    He got progressively worse:

    First series: 1 first down, then a punt.

    Second series, three and out (his 3rd down pass he threw short of the needed yard marker. Another punt.)

    Third series: three and out (his 3rd down pass almost intercepted. Another punt.)

    Fourth series: a penalty gave KC a first down; then Mutt fumbled the ball away the next play.

    $63 million shot in bloody dying technicolor…

    Excellent suggestions today. 1) Sign 38 y/o Lorenzo Neal who wasn’t even wanted by the Raiders. Good one. 2) And the call for Thigpen or Croyle to be the QB. Two guys that would be on the cut line for most NFL teams. I guess that shows how far we have fallen and apparently have nowhere to go but up.

    Neither of these will happen. Pioli/Haley are attempting to change the expectations of this team. The last regime would gladly have fought over has beens and wanna be’s. These guys won’t scrape the bottom.

  • August 20, 2009  - Nick L. says:

    ILChiefsFan,

    I just watched the highlights, besides all this Cassel argument (wich rin is delusional) did anyone notice 71 Alex Magee on the screen play about 40 sec into it? Line of scrimmage was about the 35 and magee chased the rb down and made the tackle 20 yds downfield, it was the play where flowers was in on it forcing the fumble. That was impressive! Yeah magee had a little bit of an angle (not much of one though), but were talking about a 300 lb man running down a rb. I sure hope that was noticed when the coaches watched the game tape.


  • August 20, 2009  - SG says:

    “The last regime would gladly have fought over has beens and wanna be’s.”

    If Neal’s not even on the 80-man roster, how do we know he’s not serviceable? Isn’t that the point of preseason?


  • August 20, 2009  - ILChiefsFan says:

    Nick L.,

    That was impressive on Magee’s part. I was a little disappointed with the way Mays got pushed out of that play, though.

    I thought the play of the defense was encouraging. Houston may not have the greatest O-line in the NFL but they had a pretty prolific offense last season.

  • August 20, 2009  - Pollard49 says:

    I saw the game, i rewatched said game, cassel was never almost intercepted. They didnt really let him do much, quick passes off of a 1-2 step, and a quick shotgun pass…they didnt let him whip it downfield…the first drive was about getting LJ back in the mix(notice LJ was gone after one series)…then after that they tried to get the pass game going, but if you take away your best reciever, and probably your second best(bradley) and put in guys who wouldnt make 20 of 32 football teams…Cmon.

    Rin Tin Tin, bad dog, BAD DOG! Sit, you mangy mutt, and learn how to use CONVERSATIONAL English when posting in a public forum. Your attempt to impress yourself is pathetic, your knowledge of football is limited, your ability to reason based on real facts is non-existent, and you have doggy breath. Any REAL coach, player, journalist, or fan knows that no conclusions can be made very early in the regular season, much less the pre-season. Even when the regular season starts, you need at least 3 to 4 games to be played before “wisely” pointing out trends or patterns of good or bad play. In the meantime, individual incidents look promising or not promising, but definitely non-conclusive. Get a life and go post on some other site, you’ve soiled this one enough. You need to be potty-trained and fixed, as you have some very bad habits. BAD DOG!

    So sad:

    “Third series: three and out (his 3rd down pass almost intercepted. Another punt.)”

    Another epic fail on your part today, Rin. Go home and lick whatever it is you dogs lick after you’ve been mauled.

    I didnt realize he was 38!! and I said in my comment that I didnt know his age. So, no he probably doesnt have anything left, since he is almost as old as that brett favre dude pople are taking about. ha.

    Anyway, knowing he is that age, probably no one will sign him and he will retire. But im sure you already knew that!

    hhhmmm, I don’t see where the definition lists anything about “lacking”. Must be one certain mangy mutt his its own definition, just like it has on everything to do with football, etc.

    Guys, I know that RTT0W thinks he gets to us, but he don’t, and anyway my wife works with special needs kids and I always treat them with the respect and love they deserve. So be nice to Rin, he can not help it, always remember that if he is Rin Tin Tin he had no choice, he was born a son of a b####. It comes with the territory of a dog, who half way taught him to type? We will never know.


  • August 20, 2009  - Rin Tin Tin says:

    Here’s an easier one for you to fathom (that means ‘understand’), Ulrich…

    You said:

    “Any REAL coach, player, journalist, or fan knows that no conclusions can be made very early in the regular season, much less the pre-season.”

    - hue nee you Ulrich must not have gotten it the rose-colored memo. Chiefs fans – that stupid lot Rin oft refers to- are already telling us Ca$$el will be a star, Kaycee willst win 10 or 12 games AND the AFC West. Can Superbowl be farther than 22 proclamations theirs away, any?

    So it is then that whence a Rin defers (this be more chain-jerking of them by Rin than absolute candor mine), says to the contrary KC will win none as in 0 games, the outrage can be measured via clenched teeth & invective theirs.

    Then, when Rin counters by bloodying their noses each & every daily, they cry foul. Again, they be a stupid (and too helpless) lot.

    Via your own verbiage (that means ‘words’ Ul- can I call you that? No Mutter- er matter, shall/will anyway), Chiefs fans are a stupid lot…as an Rin afore you hath affirmed, and continues to herein, daily.

    :cool: daddy-o

    Once again, the mangy mutt shows he knows as much about me as he does Matt Cassel/football. While I don’t go out of my way to boast about my education, I am compelled to to show that mutt its ignorance. I have a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and a masters in project management, as well as an associates in electronics and computer technology, and speak three languages. I consider myself an educated man, but would never portray myself as “better” or more intelligent than anyone else. And I certainly don’t pretend I can predict the performance of any one football player, or team, based on early pre-season events or results. There are many, many famous and intelligent people who have graced the face of this planet (of which you are not one of) who always used the easy speak version of English, known as conversational English, because it has always been considered rude to do anything other, when talking in a public format. Then again, you aren’t here to really contribute to any conversation, you are here simply for the attention, and you get it, because we hate to let your garbage be spewed about without some sore of sane, rational arguments made to keep this forum from becoming a dump.

    Isn’t it time for your flea dip? In any case, I’ve given you way too much attention, absolutely more than your worth, and I am done kicking at the mangy mutt that continues to rub against our legs and sniffing at our crotches.

    “Chiefs fans – that stupid lot Rin oft refers to- are already telling us Ca$$el will be a star”

    Yeah, Ulrich. If you go through the hundreds of comments made on this blog since the Chiefs acquired Cassel you might find as many as five saying he’ll be a star!

    Remember this when talking to Rin – facts are “immaterial”.

    no rrt0w my mom has passed on. love that you keep mentioning hee haw. show canceled on network found success in syndication. kind of like herm. canceled on network, nfl, might find success in syndication, set of espn. did not use caps so as to give you something to single out. hats off to Ulrich, caps. on, he blew your cool. these post can be fun, informational, you made them personal, i responded, unlike me to do so will not happen again.
    just saw that kc chiefs site to change later, will definetly be worth checking out.

    “Once again”

    - heeeeeeeeeeeeere’s Ully! (like clockwork nee Swallows Capistarno, returneth he Ully to Rin, good & faithful footstool- er, servant he.)

    “While I don’t go out of my way to boast about my education, I am compelled to to show that mutt its ignorance.”

    - uh oh, now Rin’s in trouble…

    “I have a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and a masters in project management, as well as an associates in electronics and computer technology, and speak three languages.”

    - alas, writing well eludes you…

    “I consider myself an educated man”

    - yet not satisfied & too a bit uncertain, choose to proclaim it to Rin the hope He might affirm… He’ll leave the lights on for you…

    “but would never portray myself as “better” or more intelligent than anyone else.”

    - a wise choice in your case…

    “And I certainly don’t pretend I can predict the performance of any one football player, or team, based on early pre-season events or results.”

    - Carnac, Kreskin & Nostradamus reside not the sparse bookshelf your cognitive fund…

    “There are many, many famous and intelligent people who have graced the face of this planet”

    - thank you, but you’re preaching to the choir…

    “(of which you are not one of)”

    - true, I only sang for my father & once too of the body electric…

    “who always used the easy speak version of English, known as conversational English, because it has always been considered rude to do anything other, when talking in a public format.”

    - lemme guess… you Ully?

    “Then again, you aren’t here to really contribute to any conversation, you are here simply for the attention, and you get it, because we hate to let your garbage be spewed about without some sore of sane, rational arguments made to keep this forum from becoming a dump.”

    - wow…that cuts Ully; cuts to the quick. Now this time, van you do it with a bit more fervor?
    Really get into your blather: focus, concentrate Ully- make the audience really ‘believe’ in your character… though you have none.

    Now then… if your character was a man who went up to a girl and asked for a date, how would you get across & express to her your passion, desire for her? That conversational English that you’d referred to…what would you say to her, Ully?

    “Isn’t it time for your flea dip?”

    - oh dear; this is going to take a miracle…

    “In any case, I’ve given you way too much attention, absolutely more than your worth, and I am done kicking at the mangy mutt that continues to rub against our legs and sniffing at our crotches.”

    - that is without question some of the very worst method acting that I Rin have ever seen, read or heard Ully… DISMISSED.

    NEXT!!!

    :lol: & :razz:


  • August 20, 2009  - Rin Tin Tin says:

    Really what it boils down to is that Ully as many others just want Rin to like them, be like them, grovel in the dirt of their Chiefly rose-colored delusions…

    Well, to borrow from George Bush Sr: “Not gonna do it, wouldn’t be prudent.”

    Rin works alone & sans a net (white-coated men too more a rose-colored tack & knack than mine); no riders.
