Berry Out For The Season

From the Truman Sports Complex

Chiefs SS Eric Berry is done for the season because of a left knee injury that he suffered in Sunday’s game against Buffalo.

Berry was injured in the first quarter on a low block at his knees by Bills WR Stevie Johnson. He left the field for two plays, returned and played two more, before he left the field for good.

Berry played all 16 games last season as a rookie and earned Pro Bowl honors for his performance.

He joins TE Tony Moeaki as two starters who are lost for the season because of injury.

    Ouch! That one is going to hurt.

    Good luck Mr Berry. You were my favorite Chief. It’s going to be a long season. Maybe we’ll have a shot at Mr Luck next April.

    Wow. The season just keeps getting worse and worse. All I have left to hope for is that the Raiders will stink even worse.

    I haven’t had a chance to watch the replay, but when I saw the player throw the block at his knees it looked like a cheap shot. You hate this because ACL’s can be injuries that players never fully recover from, it can rob some speed that makes a TE like Tony M. or Berry 1/2 step slower!

    Let’s hope both Berry and Moeaki come back 100%; two of the Chiefs best young rising stars. What a shame.

    To me, this season feels thoroghly cursed; for whatever reasons. With all the injuries and the embarassing disaster we witnessed on Sunday, the Chiefs are now in the hunt for QB Luck, and maybe a head coach. That’s a shame, too. I had very high hopes for Haley. And that coaching staff has some big time talent; can’t explain this mess.

    Damn, I was really looking forward to this season.

    Haley should be fired.

    We should try and hire either Bill Cohwer or Jon Gruden for 2012.

    Chan Gailey was fired by Haley and replaced by Charlie Weiss as offensive coordinator.

    Gailey had the last laugh beat down 41-7 and took out Eric Berry too.

    I thought the Chiefs were either 8-8 or 6-10 at best last year. Got lucky at 10-6 Chargers should have been AFC WEST CHAMPS.

    Bills. Dolphins. Broncos twice. Raiders twice only 6 wins in 2011.

    4-12 2009; 6-10 2010; 6-10 2011 would show hope for 2012.

    NOW throw the season and draft number one and draft ANDREW LUCK -QB

    SUH is going to “KNOCK OUT” and end the season and career for Matt Cassel with a broken collar bone separated shoulder next Sunday

    This is fixable. Haley needs to return to his lunatic style of coaching. He should put the fear of god in his assist. coaches. If he cannot, probably gone by next year.

    The current team could be ready to play by after the SD game. Figure if they got lucky, the team will not quit on the coaches even with losing the next few games.

    It is up to Haley, I figure Poili will disappear from public view and Hunt will stay in Tx. Time to sink or swim, Todd.

    Who’s next? At this point, fans are throwing in the towel on the season, the coach and GM could care less, and people with talent are either knocking themselves out or getting knocked out. Good thing we got four nationally televised games this season…

    Bob, in your estimation, how many more wheels must fall off before a significant change is made?

  • September 12, 2011  - el cid says:

    I am not Bob, Josh, but Pioli is fire proof. He is a 5X Exec of year, banked 30 mil a year the last 3 years for Clark. He is going no where …..unless he quits or the stadium is empty for most games.

    Haley is a different subject. I am not saying but suspect he is a glorified OC and has not a clue what to do next with this team. You have seen all his tricks and there is nothing left. Remember we have stuck with Jackson for 3 incompetant years as a starter so Pioli may have a hard time letting people see him as something less than a genius.

    Losing Berry hurts its time the players step their game up. It starts on offense. Cassel is QB he has to now grab bull by the horn and help this offense be more explosive by attacking down the field. If we got any chance of winning now we’re going to have to be more explosive on offense. Defensively we’re going to miss Berry and be succeptable to big plays with McGraw and Pitschtelli or however you spell his name. So Cassel needs prove pro bowl appearance wasn’t one yr fluke like Derek Anderson was in Cleveland.

  • September 12, 2011  - el cid says:

    What if Cassel has hurt ribs and cannot throw more than 5-6 yards? Also he is not the playcaller, he does what he is told. Not sure what you want him to do, ED?

    What Crennel will do on defense, is a mystery to me.Just short talent, guess who I blame for that?

    Come back up for air, take a deep breath and climb back on the pier! We played lousy and lost a key player but it was only the first game of the season. If we listen to all the gloom and doom in these posts we might as well not play the next 15. Let’s wait and see what happens for a while before we fire our coach, bench or hurt our QB and start trying to get the first pick in the draft. I don’t know how old some of you boys are but you obviously weren’t around for at least a couple of the decades in the 1970′s and 80′s or you would know what sh#t looks like. I guess this passes as fans with some who can only handle fair weather. It sucks to lose and look as bad as we did but Jeesh! Give me a break already. We’ve only played one game. P.S. You don’t get lucky and win 10 games in the NFL no matter who you play.

    If Donald Washington can’t step in as a safety, then he should not be on the team. He was a Pioli pick and has the athletic ability this team needs. If Washington can’t cut it this far in, cut him.

    As far as Pioli is concerned, the more I know about him, the less I like him. Bob’s haunting recollection of Pioli refusing to listen to Chiefs scouts when he came on and then had one of the worst drafts in Chiefs history—- I’ll take the first loss under Haley this year over Pioli’s draft. Which his a bigger disaster? Pioli can’t fix his draft and we’ll see how the team responds. BTW, I understand Haley had to plead for Berry. I’d love to know who Pioli wanted. Pioli’s last draft with the Pats— no one is still on the team.

    Pioli is said to be unhappy with the coach that won the Division last year. Who the hell is this guy? The Patriots seem to be doing just fine without him. Tyson Jackson and Todd Haley were his first hires. If those are two bad hires, then Pioli deserves to be fired. He won’t be, but that’s who I would fire if I was that penny-pinching, employee-unfriendly Clark Hunt.

    Here’s my complaint about Haley: He isn’t calling the plays.

    That needs to change. Other Head Coaches do it and he’s damn good at it.
