OK, I have a beef. The Chiefs have the best linebacker prospect they have had since the late, great, Derrick Thomas. And there is something similar
between these two, besides their first name. Derrick Johnson, picked in the first round by the Chiefs this year is fast. Oh my, he is fast.
I am a firm supporter of Gunther Cunningham, but I am losing faith.
A revamped defense. A coordinator that is known for blitzing. A faster defense. Better cornerbacks. And why are in the HELL are you standing on the
sidelines? You would see how bad your sceme is from the booth, just like you used to do. Get back upstairs!!
But what do I constantly see? Derrick Johnson in PASS COVERAGE? What?!? Are you kidding me?!? He can't disrupt the backfield if he has to cover the
slot receiver. Then the Chiefs rush 4 guys. Linebackers drop back into zone, fine, I understand that. Why in the HELL does a receiver get open 8 yards
down the field and allow the other team to get a first down and extend their drive?!? 7 Guys in coverage. With a max of 5 receivers. Um, do the
Live and die by the blitz. Fine get burned for 1 or 2 TDs. Fill the holes with linebackers, prevent the run. But please stop allowing the other team
to march down the field with 7 yard passes on 3rd down when it is 3 and 6. Playing against the Chiefs D is easy, short crossing routes and
buttonhooks, all 7 yard routes. The Chiefs are so worried about the deep ball that they are willing to give up the underneath stuff.
Oh, and the offense this year. What the hell? This is not the Chiefs offense of the last 2 years. Yes, they have injury problems. But if Priest has
shown us anything, he can and will make things happen. Give him the ball. Run middle, run left, tosses, swing passes (YES PLEASE, A SWING PASS WOULD
BE AWESOME), something, anything.
Larry... buddy... when you get a handoff, and see #88 in front of you, in a HUGE hole, please follow him, don't bounce to the outside. Tony G. will
help you get down field, instead of being stopped at the line of scrimmage.
Still ticked off, Crayon
