Thoughtless Opinions

Boy its great to speak freely and I'm going after it with this weekend's first ever "Thoughtless Opinions" post! I know we get these a lot (because I write most of them), but I thought I'd better make it official. So here we go.

Thoughtless Opinion #1:

Jonathon "I make poor decisions" Baldwin is about as smart as a coked out Larry the Cable guy handling a loaded tranquilizer gun. Picking a fight with this

is like picking a fight with this

Probably wished he'd had a tranquilizer gun because regardless of whether the fight started with Jamaal Charles, it ended with a 5'10, 212lb pit bull screaming "me and Matt Cassel just F*cked you up!" 

Arrogance in a rookie calls for a helping of humble pie, and Thomas Jones delivered three. 

This was not one of Baldwin's better days. He just set himself, and his team back by not getting on-field experience through Pre-Season games or practice, and effectively lost the respect of his "fans" (all two of them), and his teammates. Not to mention putting himself (most likely), into Todd Haley's doghouse. Not a good place to be, even if you're a vet. Just ask Dwayne Bowe.

Pretty impressive, two dog references and an honorable vet mention, I'm on a roll.

Thoughtless Opinion #2:

Justin "the ganja" Houston looks like a straight up BEAST.

Yeah, I said Beast, and instead you got a picture of the Hulk, ON FIRE! And that's what Houston was last night! He made some mistakes, but he basically pitched a tent in that game because he was camping in the Raven's backfield all night long.

Don't know about you, but it got me excited! And when you start talking about excitedly pitching tents in other guys' backfields, its probably time to move on to another thoughtless opinion and say, "NO HOMO!"

Thoughtless Opinion #3:

Dexter McCluster is fast. He's not just fast, he's FAST. Like an alive Amy Winehouse fleeing a rehab center fast. Dex "the Run DMC" McCluster looked like the Bus from Speed (minus the Keanu Reeves), zipping around the field and being explosive. For those of you that thought this guy was a wasted pick and doesn't have room in our offense, watch some of last nights highlights and prepare to poop your skivvies this season. This guy can play.

Thoughtless Opinion #4:

Todd Haley has a knack for aggressive play-calling. Like on-sides kicks every other quarter and going for it on 4th and 15, rather than kicking the field goal. If I gambled like Todd Haley, I'd be as broke as Nicholas Cage.

Haley has proven he doesn't work well with offensive coordinators. He likes to run the show his way or no way. While I'm skeptical on his decision making paradigm, I have noticed that Haley's demeanor has seemed to change and he looks more comfortable with his position(s). Especially during an afternoon practice where he let Matt Cassel know, "Hey! There you go! You almost looked like a quarterback on that throw! If we keep this up, we might actually have an offense someday!" Yes, that actually happened. Are you surprised? I'm not.

Todd Haley not only seems more reserved and confident going into this season, but he's also talking less about fielding a team of 22 guys off the street. And he also no longer looks like he just came off the street himself, and for that, we thank you.

If anything, Todd Haley has a talented team with plenty of live ammo added to a once very depleted arsenal. Judging by the cool hand Luke demeanor he's carried in the past two pre-games, I think he's finally getting comfortable and settling in. Its beginning to look like the dude abides here in KC, and for me, I say its about F'n time!

Thoughtless Closing:

I don't know whats in store for the Chiefs this season. The Pats are decimating every opponent, the Steeler's made the starters of the fabled "Dream Team" look like KU football, and Jon McGraw is still on our roster. Regardless, I believe we have a team capable of doing good to great things and I can't wait for the regular season to begin.

In a Haley-esque gamble, I'm going to say Justin Houston will be the breakout rookie of the year and pitch enough tents to earn at least 7+ sacks. Watch out Stude, there's a new sack master in town, and he's ready to go camping.

And if any of you ever think for a minute that size matters, Thomas Jones will cut you down, break your thumb, and shove a piece of humble down your throat.

Thanks for reading my thoughtless ramblings. Please feel free to share your own about the Chiefs (or my mental state of mind), and please remember, "Only you can prevent forest fires."

GO CHIEFS!
