Yup, Monday Night's game officially stamped out any remaining embers of hope in even the most earnest Chiefs' fan's heart. It's over, and not only is it over, but this team is clearly lousy and isn't going to get any better even with our injured players back. It needs a shakeup. Matt Cassel ain't the answer, and never will be, and Tyler Palko- who had his golden chance to show he could play in the bigs, and sadly showed he couldn't cut it- needs to go the way of Brodie Croyle. Cassel needs to go back to his appropriate role, holding a clipboard.
This team needs a franchise quarterback and it needs to get one with its first round pick- and that pick needs to be top five. Fellas, it's time to suck. It's time to let Palko screw the pooch for the rest of the year.It's time to suck like Lady Gaga.
Yes, we desperately need Oline help, and there is a lot of merit to the argument that the Oline is a big reason why this team is so bad. But you can upgrade an Oline in Free Agency, you just have to spend a bit of money. Up to now, Pioli has only visited the bargain bins, which is why we have a line up of other teams cast offs. Sure it would be tempting to look at a top LT...but without a serious quarterback, or at least a hopeful, this team will live in the mire of hopelessness.
Hope, thy name is a quarterback.
