No Victory, But Much Better Performance By Chiefs

From Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin

Yes, the Chiefs dropped another one, losing 20-19 in the pre-season finale to the Green Bay Packers.

But this loss was far different than the first three the team suffered in the last month. The Chiefs actually got things done in this game, with the No. 1 offense scoring a touchdown and the No. 1 defense forcing turnovers like they haven’t done through the pre-season schedule.

Todd Haley played this game to win, as starters like WR Dwayne Bowe, LT Branden Albert, CB Brandon Flowers, CB Brandon Carr and others were still playing deep into the fourth quarter.

It was a night of better performances, but also some injuries that the Chiefs must deal with. QB Matt Cassel, TE Tony Moeaki, RT Barry Richardson, SS Eric Berry all left the game and did not return. None appeared to be serious – Cassel had the wind knocked out of him – but it’s one of those things coaches worry about when it comes to the final exhibition game. Sports medicine schools have info for people interested in how to help these injured players.Β Team doctors are very important parts of the team.

As always, a lot to talk about and cover:

    Not a bad effort.

    Are the Chiefs ready for the Bills? Not sure. But the real season is just over the horizen.

    It looked like Haley was calling the plays at the end of the game—- when the game was on the line. Didn’t think that was the case for the rest of the game. Do you have thoughts/insights on who will be calling the plays?

    I continue to believe Haley is the best play-caller on the staff. If that’s true, I don’t think the Chiefs are good enough to start the back-up.

    There appear to be some glitches in the play-calling. Cassel seems to be frantic to get the plays. The play-calling and the procedure for getting the plays to the QB have to be fixed….ASAP.
