Chiefs Coach Todd Haley Talks About 38-24 Loss to the Baltimore Ravens

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley wasn't happy with the 38-24 loss to the Baltimore Ravens but he was able to see progress and encouragement in certain areas of the game.  Still though, he said simply, "It wasn't the result I wanted."

You can watch the video above.  A full transcript should be available soon but here are a few quotes from the video:

"We played the game the way that I thought we had to play it.  I made it very clear to the team that for us to win the game, it was not going to be pretty. For us to win the game or have a chance to win the game, it was going to be downright ugly.

"And really, that's the way we played until the big play they had for the touchdown on the post."

On the Chiefs 2/10 day on third down:

"When you’re on the sticks on a third down, you’ve got to get the first down," Haley said. "That’s just the NFL. You’ve got to get the first down and keep the drive alive."

On choosing Brodie Croyle:

"I thougth that Brodie Croyle gave us a chance to win today and that's all I've ever asked our quarterback to do. 

"I don't know what his numbers were.  I know at some point there it wasn't pretty.  But he was completing the ball and, most importantly, not turning it over.  This defense, maybe moreso against any other, you can not let them get going."

On the Ravens pass happy offense:

"I gotta give credit to Baltimore.  They were a throwing machine today. They threw the ball probably a lot more than we anticipated but we gotta stop that.  We made plays defensively.

"I told them to do be ready.  There was, situationally, a plan for him.  I only got to put him in once.  It's just the way the game went."

On Thigpen entering the game:

"There were a lot of different variables for him that I don't want to get into it was the game that dictated it I would say. "
