They'll be getting one this year.

EJ Manuel is garbage. Wait till the real bullets start flying...he'll fold just like he always does.

I'll take any talented unknown young QB over a POS like Alex, who has about 4 useful years left of checking the ball down.

The classic annual Deadspin Article - Why your team sucks - the Chiefs.

Too bad it starts off with such morbidness, takes a little fun out of the usual tongue and cheek prodding.

Yeah this summed it up for me:

If they win 11 games, get bounced after one round due to a horrendous clock management error and no one dies, they'll have basically had their finest season of the new century.

I saw that 1st play and thought of you and STUDLY. Glad you saw him getting owned repeatedly as well.

Fisher may grow into a great pick as the season goes on but he looked bad vs 49ers.

Then you have a guy like Kyle Long who held up pretty good in pass pro and pancaked a dude pulling and he only started some 4 games or something.

Bad year to pick 1st overall.

The fanbase is trying to convince itself that it's due to his hand/shoulder injury.

He has played 2 games and been terrible. It's time to cut him he is a bust.

I'm not going to declare Fisher a bust because he got abused by the best defense in the NFL instead of looking good against SD scrubs like Kyle Long. But if he keeps looking this way then it's a definite cause for concern.

I think he'll be a good player. Plus, Rev told us so, so there's that.

As they should. You don't write a #1 pick off due to some bad play in his first two preseason games. But if I were a Chiefs fan (thank god I'm not) I'd be worried.

You can say that about every player. Geno is mentally soft. Manual plays crappy under duress. Neither are things an NFL starting QB can have and hope to succeed.

Also on Fisher, some of that is mental. He's probably swimming right now and he's missing is assignments. His feet still look good. What bothers me is he doesn't use hands - like at all.

Holy Smokes! Someone matured over the summer! Must be a big jump for you going from middle school into High School this year. Way to grow up young man! Did your parents get you a pet to take care of or did you learn how to talk to adults at camp this summer?




For reals. Nice post

Fisher has also been playing with an injury so I think that is definitey affecting him. He got abused by the SF defense but that's a damn good defense with talent everywhere. He's gonna have to adjust to the speed of the game, no doubt about that.

Also, if you can find a way to use it, check out the graphic here of the last five years’ winning trend.



Appropriately, it’s giving me the finger.

He looked much better the other night. I was impressed, considering the defense we played was statistically the best in the league last year.

Chiefs looked a lot better last night, although some serious warning signs on defense. This team really needed that TD at the end of the half.

Still pretty concerned. Alex hasn't completed a single pass over 15 yards this preseason, and the run game is not there.

Thinking 6-10 or 7-9 right now.

That is Alex Smith. Smith is too conservative and lacks confidence in throwing deep. I am draft Charles if I get the chance because the only way the Chefs will be competitive is if he carries the tea. Funny how Manning's arm is not the strongest but he led the NFL in plays over 25 yards. He has confidence in his game and in his WRs that make up for his lack of arm strength.

I wonder if any team will go 8 games this year without holding a lead in regulation?
