From a fan's perspective all the way at the top of rainy section 341, it is hard to tell if the Chiefs 1-6 start to the season is the fault of the talent that coach Haley inherited or issues with coaching - or both. Until now, I've sided heavily toward the argument that Haley is the real deal and it's just going to be a process. There are many positives to like about him. No one can deny that he gives tireless efforts and demands the very best from his players. I like his mindset about conditioning because of its advantages in terms of athleticism and preventing injuries, but am disappointed with him and Pioli in that Cassell cannot stay on his feet. This season is going to put a lot of wear and tear on our hopefully franchise QB.
I usually only read Whitlock for a good laugh and don't give serious consideration to what he says. In this weeks public letter he wrote to Haley, however, he seems to hit spot-on what may be some of Haley's major issues as a head coach: emotion and immaturity. He suggests that Haley has potential to be a good head coach but is not making the most of his opportunity. .
I am going to remain undecided until the end of the season, and hope that Haley shapes up to be the real deal that I think he could be. What do you think?
