I was disappointed in today's game and last week's yet I cannot say I am surprised. The Chiefs simply do not have enough talent along the offensive or defensive lines to win.
They continue to start slow and simply cannot score. Last year I will say I thought Cassell was playing well and I admired his grit. This year he has simply been awful. I agree he has been under duress a great deal yet he has not been accurate. His receivers have offered little help (geez they cannot even line up right in week 10).
On defense, everyone knew the Chiefs were going to have to stop the run and they simply do not have the ability to do so as their D-Line is atrocious. Hey Denver....keep running at Tyson Jackson because he will not be involved in the play....I see you figured that out real fast...like all game long.
I think the coaching has been suspect yet personally I think our talent level is our achilles' heel. I put this squarely on our GM. We did NOT UPGRADE either line during the offseason, had gobs of money to spend and did not draft well to help these two areas either.
It is so disappointing to know our team is outgunned in nearly every game we play and the buzz saw we are going to run in to now will show how poor our talent really is.
So, I ask....coaching, the GM or both?
