If you want Spag's head then why not J. Graham's????? Backed up in our end zone, dropped 1st down pass led to 2nd in long which lead to a three and out, which led to punt, poor field position, game over. There's plenty of discontent to go around. The chiefs were hungry, we looked like the proverbial deer in the head lights. Drew looked lost. Plenty to go around, really.

Re: THIS DEFENSE STINKS

Agree with comments on the offense not being up to its (record-setting) norm, but the WORST that they have done so far is 24 points.

I know these aren't the days of the Dome Patrol, but are you freaking kidding me???

That should be enough points to win EVERY WEEK!!!

Lets all have dinner and sleep on today. Maybe some constructive ideas will ensue?

Aside from a pick and a sack they basically did nothing.

That really isn't true. I understand the concept, but it simply isn't true. Each game is different. How can you blame the D in one breath because our O put up 24 points when 2 of those TD's came from us gaining 26 total yards and that was set up by two turnovers our D got?

The d is terrible, don't get me wrong, but no wayyyyy the offense did enough for us to win. They had 70 or less yards in the entire second half (26 of which came on the drive from the KC 19 and the other from the KC 7, both td drives), a safety, and a turnover. The loss is simply an entire team effort. Not one persons fault, not one side of the ball. Blame to go around.

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

Re: THIS DEFENSE STINKS

This was the same thing that lost us the San Fran game. These defensive players don't have the stamina to close games. I have a hypothesis that if you were to examine the points we have given up, the majority would be in the fourth quarter.

Nobody has the stamina when your offense only gets 88 yards or so in the 2nd half, with an enormous amount of 3 and outs

There is something to be said about making a team kick 6 field goals.

Given..... It's not much, but it should count for something.


510 yards of offense and 1 TD.

Re: THIS DEFENSE STINKS

Start Hicks, Bunkley, Galette and Wilson! Get rid of Smith, Ellis and some more ASAP. In the draft focus on Safety and Oline help

Safety? Are you serious? We need a LT, RT, RDE, DT, SLB, and WLB and maybe some receivers who can catch the damn ball before I even consider upgrading either one of our two safties.
