    It appears this will be a good season. But I am reminded that those whom the gods wish to punish, they first make insane.

    With a good season behind them, they will play a much tougher schedule next year. We’ll have to wait till then to find out the truth about this squad.

    I’m so sick of hearing Herman Edwards on 810. Between his Border Patrol appearances and his time with Kietzman, he’s on way too much. Though, if he was good, it wouldn’t be so bad. Problem is, he’s so concerned about alienating anybody in the NFL since he wants back into coaching/front office. So, he talks a LOT, but doesn’t really ever say anything.

    I disagree with Gannon, Berry was looking back at the ball, thats why that PI call was so egregious. He was standing there looking back waiting for the ball almost like a punt. He has the right to go for the ball just as the WR does.

    I get Haley’s thing about breaking the season into quarters. I’m not necessarily a huge fan of the guy, but it makes sense to break the season into manageable pieces. If you look at the whole season it’s easy to get lost in planning ahead. But if you look at a four-game stretch, that’s not so intimidating. Another coach, a successful one I really detest, Mike Krzyzewski, does it the same way in each game. He just wants his team to win the period stemming from now to the next TV timeout. He breaks the game down into manageable pieces. It’s a lot easier to ask someone “give me four minutes of your all-out best effort” than it is to say “give me forty.” It’s too easy to lose focus, look ahead, try to keep something in the tank for later or just fail. But if you only need to play your hardest for four minutes (or, in the Chiefs’ case, four games), well, that’s pretty manageable and not a bad motivational tactic.

    I’ve been very critical of Haley, but I don’t think that this says that he’s afraid of either failure or of success. I think it says he knows a thing or two about what he is doing. Maybe a thing or two won’t be enough, but this “season-into-quarters” thing isn’t really a negative.

    The only thing two quarters will get you is a cheap rubber. You will probably get fucked, and the result may be a jojo.

    I have to agree with Nick, I see no reason that the Chiefs don’t win 10 or 11 games with the schedule. BTW, the Chiefs earned that schedule through crappy play for the last 3 years, it’s about time we get to take advantage of a soft schedule. As for the team, I say enjoy the ride as it has been fun. The Chiefs are playing smart, tough football, and are fun to watch on a weekly basis.

    As for Denver, to quote Jerry Seinfeld: “That’s a Shame!”

    Missouri will not beat the No. 1 team in the BCS simply because of Pinkel. You can hear it in his comments this week. He has Schottenheimer disease.

    …”Haley continues to coach outside the box, despite dressing like he lives in a box.”

    Nice line, Greg. BTW, I like how Haley dresses on the sideline. After years of “Mr. Styling”, Clown Carl, on the sidelines, dressing down is refreshing..

    -Vrabel has been ABUSED in the pass game this year. Owen Daniels did him twice on the final drive in Houston and MJD did him for the touchdown last week vs. Jax. Need more reps for Studebaker. That being said we are top 10 in points allowed and have the best rushing O in the NFL.

    -As I say every week after a Chiefs game, what do you (including GH) want from Cassel that will make you stop complaining about him? He is not going to be Manning, Brady or Brees. He does not make the $ they do either. What do you think a starting QB in the NFL goes for these days? 12 cents an hour like Glazer made in jail? The guy has the 9th best QB rating in football through 6 games. Ahead of guys like Rodgers, Brees, Ryan and 0.6 behind Orton who has to throw it 45 times a game b/c his team can’t run.

    -About the schedule, yes, we play a last place schedule. Your schedule from the previous year only determines two of your 16 games. We play the last place teams in the AFC North (CLE, who just beat NO, ps) and East (BUF) this year, vs. SD who has to play the first place teams in those divisions from last year, Cinci and NE. So, yeah, that helps, but it’s not like we get to play St. Thomas Aquinas (how emabarresed are they, get killed on ESPNU and get branded cheat shot artists in the process).

    -One last thing about scheduling, uh, we have LOSING to the Jags, Browns and lower-level NFC teams the last 3-5 years. Good teams beat bad teams and we have a decent team this year. No, probably not gonna go win in Pittsburgh or Baltimore in January, but definitely good enough to make all the people who wanted Cassel and Hayley run after one year look pretty dumb.

    I think most people are realistic about this Chiefs team: they’re much improved and better than expected, but they’re also not worldbeaters. Everyone is enjoying this season for what it is: a nice confluence of improvement and circumstance.

    The most difficult games remaining on the schedule are, what, at Oakland and home vs. Tennessee? I think 6-4 the rest of the way is about right, even as it appears the rest of the league is figuring out this defense.

    Larry Flynt is PISSED. The Chiefs schedule has more pussies in it than HUSTLER. Even Bill Snyder thinks the schedule is too easy.

    Stevie Wonder has more insight than Herm “the house negro” Edwards. He’s an older, blacker version of Nick “The Shituation” Wright.

    The Chiefs Ivy League schedule is no way to prep for a run in the playoffs. You can’t roll Brown, Cornell and Penn and think you can open up a can of whupass on Oregon.

    There is a reason that Boise State isn’t going to play for the National Championship.

    Saying the Chiefs are fun to watch is like saying it would be fun to watch Mike Tyson beat up your grandma with a tire iron. There’s no challenge when your only challenge is to make sure you’re not as BAD as the other team as opposed to having to be BETTER.

    If the Chiefs were a rock band they’d be the Archie’s. Text me when Iron Maiden or Motorhead show up.

    I am just enjoying the ride! I learned a long time ago that life can turn on a dime. Buffalo is a time bomb waiting, Oakland @ Oakland is a disaster waiting, Seattle oh boy! I am enjoying the ride whether that ride be to 10 wins or 6, because the best is yet to come!

    Some people are just never happy. Being 4-2 and having a chance to win the division should make all of us “fans” somewhat excited. One of the keys to a strong playoff run will be which team stays the most healthy. Pittsburgh just lost their best DE for the season and one of their best linebackers and it’s only a matter of time before Polamalu goes down. If we stay healthy anything is possible.

    Fans and sports people go from one extreme to the other. In preseason the Chiefs were going to be lucky to win 5 games. Now they are in the playoffs and we’re not even at the half way point.

    Buffalo is going to be tough. Many coaches like Haley break the season down into quarters. Not that big of a deal or all that unusual. How do you eat an elephant. One bite at a time.

    Vrabel is here for leadership not because he is a superior athlete.
