Chiefs End Pre-Season Futility, 17-13

From Arrowhead Stadium

There was happiness visible on the Chiefs bench in the closing seconds of the team’s 17-13 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.

After a 2-14 season in 2008, then 0-4 in the ’09 pre-season, a 4-12 record in the ’09 regular season and then 0-3 going into the ’10 pre-season, a victory of any type was badly needed.

So even though the Packers rested most of their best players, the Chiefs were going to enjoy the victory. And there was plenty that went down involving the game and here’s our coverage. Enjoy!

    A very cool game. One lady was soaked and stuck it out to the end, where were all you “Go Chief” do or die types?

    I think you might have noticed a few things.

    1. Cassel is a manager and if enough talent around him, he is ok. Forget deep passes, if he can throw that far, has no touch. But he will do.

    2. Crennel will live or die in ’10 with the blitz from DB or LBs. The front three was there but with sort of scary results. Crennel has a real feel for when to bring pressure. But his defensive middle to deep middle was usually open, with time that can get better.

    3. The ’10 draft may be one of the best in the last 20 years as a group and the ’09 may be at the bottom. Barring injuries.

    4. After this one game, I am back to 8-8 for the season. I have decided I do not know much, so it is a crap shot anyway.

    5. Haley was not the looney toon HC of last year, that’s good. Not sold on what Weis can get done with the talent around him.

    6. LB stood out and some backups look like they could step in. Do not think anyone saved their career with this one game. But pretty safe with what is there in ’10.

    ARE YOU SERIOUS? Weis not sold. I guess you didn’t watch Pats when 3 Super Bowls with this guy calling the plays. I think the most overrated thing this offseason now is Cassel throwing the ball down the field. Didn’t we watch the guy make some deep throws last yr and as for media and even some fans questioning his ability to play the position. Everyone one to look at his stats. So here’s an article I found that compares his numbers against other 2yr starting quarterbacks like Matt Ryan, Aaron Rodgers, and Joe Flaco you’ll find it interesting how our franchise quarterback stacks up. Even you Bob may need to check it out.

    Here’s the linK:

    Dead serious, if the Chiefs are down more than 10 points in the fourth qtr, you cannot expect Cassel to carry the team on his shoulders to a win. That is not his game. Tough guy, not the most accurate, and throwing deep is chancy.

    As for Weis, all I said was with a shortage of talent, he cannot expect to makes the offense operate properly. His winning part in past superbowl do not mean crap with the talent the Chiefs currently have on offense.
