State of the (Chiefs) Union

Hello All,

Well, here we are halfway through the season, sitting at 1-7. Tonight I have broken out the half a bottle of Hennessy that has been sitting in my cupboard for 3+ years and it is almost gone. I usually only drink beer, so please excuse my rambling and grammatical snafus. Am I celebrating a Sunday without a Chiefs loss, or drowning my sorrows from the Chiefs performance on Thursday? I really don't know the answer to that. Today I got to watch real football, and sadly it just couldn't hold my interest. As I type this, I am busier typing than I am watching the Girls/Pigeons play real football. Why is it that I watch every play of every miserable performance from our team, but can't get motivated to watch football unless my team is playing?

This morning I woke up at 7:30 and took my wife to catch the bus back to school in Moscow. She came home for Halloween and stayed through most of the weekend which was awesome. Now I am back to being single dad of 3 boys ranging from 3-10 while also working full-time trying to support us until she comes home again for Thanksgiving break. I am taking the long view hoping that this will all pay off, and she will be able to make good money when she finishes school. While she is gone all I have to do is work, dishes, laundry, check the homework, cook dinner, repeat. I spend my spare time on AP and checking the Chiefs news. Since I am taking the long view in my own life, I should be doing the same for the Chiefs right? Give Pioli time to finish his plan, build our team and take us to the superbowl in 2013. Wrong! I may have patience in my own life, but I count on the Chiefs to help me get through the hard times in my life. I want to see something happen NOW. After Thursday's game, I just knew the hatchet was going to drop Friday morning. At the minimum Daholl gone, hopefully Crennhuh? and Piolhole gone too. WRONG! So far nothing has happened.

So, where to go from here? I am sooooooo done with Cassel. I respect him as a person, and think our team as a whole whole could use a lot of his determination, work ethic, and passion. With that being said, I don't think he should take another snap as a Chief unless Brady(not Tom) and Ricky are both broken. I am speaking under the assumption that the current regime will get to finish the season with no upheavals. I think Quinn should get to start vs. the Steelers assuming he is over his headache. If he somehow manages to pull a W despite all our best efforts, then let him keep playing until we lose. At that point the Stanzi show should begin. I suspect he sucks, but we really have NOTHING to lose. As someone else said, what the worst that could happen? We could play every game without ever having a lead, lose almost every game, turn over the ball a zillion times? Sounds pretty awful. There is always the chance that he could show that he belongs on our practice squad or in training camp next year. There is also that (very slight) chance that he could provide some spark or passion to our offense and we could win a couple down the stretch. I'm surprised this hasn't happened yet, as it seems to be about the only way Piolhole could hope to redeem himself.

Anyway, I'm still hoping something will change now, or very soon. But assuming that nothing will change for coaching or management this season, what do y'all think we should do moving forward?

P.S. I would appreciate any news on the Len/Pioli interview. Wondering how pathetic the fluff was?

P.P.S. I hate the new site! I have adapted to the crappy graphics, and cluttered layout, but I can't accept the constant crashes when I am on my phone. Sometimes I'll spend my whole smoke break trying to load a story without any success. Are we ever going to get a minimal/mobile version?

P.P.P.S. Please go out and vote on Tuesday. I don't care if it's for Obamhuh? or Romnothing, or neither of the above. Just go make your voice heard, no matter how little it may matter. I live in Idaho, so I'm guaranteed that anyone or thing I vote for will never win or pass, but I still go do it anyway just because.

Good night, peace out y'all.
