The Time Honored Tradition Continues

It's a tradition (unlike any other) that happens at workplaces across the country. When someones leaves a job, you can expect some former co-workers to do a little s--t talkin' after they leave. That appears to be the case with the Kansas City Chiefs.

On Wednesday, Mitch Holthus curiously suggested on 810 WHB that the Chiefs offense could have been more efficient against the Green Bay Packers last week because they "didn't have [former head coach] Todd [Haley] vetoing at the 11th hour".

And on Thursday offensive coordinator Bill Muir was asked about the Chiefs offense appearing more efficient post-Haley and he said: ''If you thought it appeared that, then it probably was," Muir said, per Adam Teicher of the KC Star. "Romeo delegates authority and expects the people who are given authority to do their job."

(By the way, this isn't the first time Muir has said something curious like this. A few weeks ago some folks in league circles raised their eyebrows when Muir said Jared Gaither was released from KC because he lacked the explosiveness he had in Baltimore. You know, before Gaither started three games for the Chargers without allowing a sack or quarterback pressure.)

The problems under Haley don't concern me as much right now as A.) beating the Raiders and B.) the Bills beating the Broncos.
