Cassel on IR. No controversy. If Teddy struggles, its still him and he can come back and learn instead of starting a new guy each week.
and also no AD as a crutch either.
I didn't think of that. He needs to do it all himself after seeing what we got. I heard Corey Chavious on KFAN this morning suggest a trade with Oakland sending a 6th or 7th round pick for Darren McFadden, and you know what. I like that. Someone that has speed, can catch out of the backfield. Don't know about his blocking. But someone that has had success in the NFL and not Asiata and essentially two rookies (Banyard not really seeing time).
Hutch.. .the 3rd down defense was pathetic at best. 3rd and 12. Hey lets let in a 13 yard pass. 3rd and 20. Let in a 21 yard pass. I was furious. If I were Zimmer I would immediately address this in practice. But I also thought Ronde Barber brought up a good talker. Even if you are in zone. after time. on 3rd down, move to cover someone instead of sitting in your designated spot after the play develops.
Favorite thing about Teddy. He looks like he is ordering fast food whether it is 1st and 5 in the 1st quarter or 3rd and 16 on a key 4th quarter play.
Ha hutch I would love to see Charles in Minnesota too, but there is no chance the Chiefs let him go. Davis has looked good, but Charles looked great again last night. There is a statute outside the Union Station down here and the city voted to have a Charles jersey put on it. They just gave him a new contract, that's actually pretty reasonable. They did that before Alex Smith or any of their defensive stars got one. We'll just have to hope McKinnon gets his blocking down so he might turn into our own Charles I hope McKinnon works out too and we can keep him on the field more often. I'm a Charles fan and have made it known I'd take him over AD because of his pass catching ability...maybe we find a solid back in next years draft. That would be pretty cool if they put a jersey on the statue ....the guy is pretty much 60 % of their offense
Game starts and ends again IMO with the the O & D Line. Just terrible.
After watching Zimmer's press conference, I want to say again how much I like this guy! He doesn't hold back anything! He stated plain and simple this performance was unacceptable. My guess is if the players don't pick it up the next game we may see some changes made in the rotation. My favorite statement was when he said the difference between here and Cinci was that at Cinci he would only get to yell at the defense here he gets to yell at both sides of the ball. Love it! Give'em hell Zimm! That's too funny BtlsFan, I never saw the press conference but getting to yell at both sides remark is priceless. The biggest concern IMO is the run defense or lack of it. Zimmer preaches this this and the main focus of the unit. The lack of discipline for guys not holding their gaps or not getting off blocks is very concerning. IT's a handful of players that are the concern and the beching you mentioned could coming very soon....its selfish football from a few that is really causing a problem. I hope Teddy is 100% because he will be running for his life against the Lions. Only positive for is is Johnson reinjured his ankle again and could miss this game.
