a GIANT LOL to the Chiefs right now. They're playing the Packers and they still have their 1st string offense and defense playing with 5:30 until half time.

That being said they are still only up 2 points against the Packers 2nd string and Moeki went out with a banged up knee it looked like and even more hilarious Cassel got hammered by some backup dt on the Pack and immediately went to the sideline holding his arm and shoulder, announcers were talking about a possible seperated shoulder. Not sure if true but still how in the hell do you play your starters for the 1st full half in the 4th preseason game. What an absolutely awful team they'll be this year.

Moeaki and Cassel are fine. They're both walking on the sideline. Cassel got sacked by a 340 lb DL and got the wind knocked out of him.

Btw-Cassel went 15/17 for 129 yards, 1 TD and a 117.9 rating in the first half. Guess that means he's going to light it up this year because preaseason means everything right?! Ha!

Actually the facts are that you don't risk injuries to your starters during the 4th preseason game. You also miss out on evaluating your 2nd and 3rd string players.

What makes you think coaches will do anything different than what Harbaugh did if it works.

And it's a freaking preseason game. There is no need to blitz your 3rd and 4th string players on every play of the game. It's hard to evaluate guys who are trying to make the team when players blitz every game. Doing that in a meaningless game with 4th stringers is tasteless.

Is he mad that they blitzed every down (obvious exaggeration), or because he couldn't stop it? ROFL!

If the blitz is working, why would the other team stop calling them? Maybe if Haley had a better team, or could coach worth a damn, he wouldn't have to cry every time he gets embarrassed by another team.

If that's the case, Haley is going to be REALLY mad when Miller and Doom are coming every down and dominating that pathetic offensive line the Queefs have.

The Chiefs are such a weird team. They barely played their starters for three games, and then in the 4th game decided to play a lot of them throughout most of the game. Just so weird. Especially since they play GB later in the year. I really, don't get it.

I'm guessing Haley wasn't liking what he saw the first three games and wanted to get more of his core guys some playing time.

But if Chemistry is so important why not at least start your starters in the 1st game for a couple plays.

It appears that since the KFC 1st team has been teh suck all PS that Haley is worried his guys arent prepared hence starting his 1st team and playing them until the half.

09-01-2011, 08:30 PM
I can see the logic, your starters have struggled to get anything going in preseason so you want to see them put together a few nice drives to take some momentum into the opener next week.

I'd be worried if it was us because there's a hint of desperation about it. Better than going in off the back of what they did against the Rams though so I don't think it's a bad idea by Haley.

According to their great head coach. They pulled their starters WELL before the Rams did. Don't you think it would have made sense to see how their starters would have played for one full half--against another teams starters?

Their decisions in the preseason make absolutely no sense. No sense whatsoever.

Only rational that I could think of is they thought Cassel might have been hurt (initially) and so they decided Palko needed as many reps as he could get. Doesnt sound like too many of the injuries were serious for KC. Although they aren't really saying anything about them other then Cassel's.

What a shortsighted, homerific, and ignorant post.

1. Moeaki is injury prone. It was the major knock on him coming out of college.
2. This happened in the first quarter. It's not like it happened in the 4th quarter. If it had, you might have some level of a point.
3. Different coaches had different approaches to how fast to bring guys back. Fox pushed people early. Ty Warren went down. Haley pushed guys late. Moeaki went down. It happens.

Idk how credible that is. People have also said Cassel has a fractured clavicle from the hit.
He was up and throwing the ball around in the 2nd half of the game. Never know though. The DL who sacked him weighed over 330 lbs. Can't imagine that weight falling on me.

Buffalo is one of those teams capable of putting 30+ points on the board one week and 3 FG's the next. I hope theyre ready to score on opening day. That would put cassy in a bad spot having to thorw the ball into the ground and 5 yrds behind his WR's all game long. Baby haley would have tears and snot running down his face by the 3rd quarter.

Rolandftw

It's hard to say since KC is always secretive with stuff. Like, with the TM thing I generally think once something like that is reported it usually ends up being true. Hope not, as I never like to see a guy get injured... but I definitely never bought the "wind knocked out of him," statement either.

A guy doesn't act like how Cassel acted if he had the "wind knocked out of him." He was obviously hurt, we just don't know to what extent.

Them not playing Stanzi now makes sense though. Needed to give Palco all the reps they could, in case Cassel wasn't ready.

Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star reports Matt Cassel (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/3237/matt-cassel) has a rib injury that could keep him out of the season opener (http://www.kansascity.com/2011/09/04/3121062/chiefs-qb-cassel-has-rib-injury.html#ixzz1X291JLQk) against the Bills. And that could expose one of the shakiest backup quarterback situations in the league.
Teicher reports that coach Todd Haley told backup Tyler Palko (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4499/tyler-palko) after Thursday’s game that he “better be ready to play Sunday.’’

Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star reports Matt Cassel (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/3237/matt-cassel) has a rib injury that could keep him out of the season opener (http://www.kansascity.com/2011/09/04/3121062/chiefs-qb-cassel-has-rib-injury.html#ixzz1X291JLQk) against the Bills. And that could expose one of the shakiest backup quarterback situations in the league.
Teicher reports that coach Todd Haley told backup Tyler Palko (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4499/tyler-palko) after Thursday’s game that he “better be ready to play Sunday.’’

From that same article.

From Cassel:

“I just got the wind knocked out of me,’’ he said. “We were just being cautious.’’

From Haley:

“He wanted to go back in. I thought the prudent thing was to be smart there.

“Unfortuntately, he got dinged up a little bit. I’m not overly concerned.’’

I think he'll be starting next Sunday.

He was winded, yet still questionable for the opener??

Haley is embarrassed by his own dumbassery, keeping starters in the last pre-season game.

Injury reports aren't out yet. They shouldn't come out until Tuesday or Wednesday.

Those quotes were immediately after the game Thursday. There's a chance Cassel plays, probably a good one considering he's a tough player.. but I'm fairly certain he still has at least one broke rib.

If true, I'd rest him and get him ready for @Detroit and @San Diego.

If he has a broken rib than he's gonna be out for 6-8 weeks, maybe the season.

A player doesn't get 'winded' and become 'questionable' for the next game, 10 days later.

Something else is going on with Cassel.

Hang nail??

What a shortsighted, homerific, and ignorant post.

1. Moeaki is injury prone. It was the major knock on him coming out of college.
2. This happened in the first quarter. It's not like it happened in the 4th quarter. If it had, you might have some level of a point.
3. Different coaches had different approaches to how fast to bring guys back. Fox pushed people early. Ty Warren went down. Haley pushed guys late. Moeaki went down. It happens.

Still think its a dumb statement. btw, this all happened long after they should have been playing, if i recall correctly it was closer to the middle of the 2nd quarter for both injuries, meaning long long after the Packers pulled their guys.

Also the Warren comparison is retarded, it was a torn tricep (i.e. freak injury that can happen regardless of game situation or practice). Both of the Chiefs injuries were game and contact related.

Also if your guy is injury prone, don't play him in a game that the starters for every other nfl team do not play their guys.
