Default Dennis Green upset after Chiefs D manhandles his first-team O

Pretty funny. Sour grapes, fat man.

"They (the Chiefs) blitz a lot in the preseason," Green said. "They don't have the kind of defense (to blitz a lot) in the regular season; it means too much. But in the preseason every year, they blitz a lot."

I will have to agree with Green here.... Blitzing all nite in the Pre-season means you want to win a game more than developing your defense for when the games count.

The Chiefs D blitzes alot in the regular season anyway. Not only is it sour grapes, but Green is flat out wrong.

This is one of those "who care" threads.

The Chiefs blitzed and Green was mad. *yawn*

It's definitely sour grapes. The Chiefs blitzed. The Cardinals folded like a cheap tent. Dennis Green was pissed about. So he decided to insult the Chiefs.

Where's the insult? you mean his comment about ' they dont have the kind of defense to do that in regular season? ' i would say that is very accurate, especially the last couple of years. sounds to me like Green got under your skin with that comment.

Isn't it an unwritten rule that you're not supposed to blitz that often in the preseason?

I thought that as well, it is something about not trying to injure all the opposing players. i thought they had like a limit on how many blitzes they can use.

I think it's one player they're concerned about, and that's a QB getting taken out by an unblocked LB in a meaningless game.

Was this stemmed from the Romo hit on Collins a few years back?

I think that "rule" is something that's existed for awhile, Romo probably reinforced every coaches hope that everyone uphold it.

I noticed watching the Chiefs game they were running the bread and butter Goonther defense. the all out blitz!! All I could think of watching it was McCaffery 3 yard slant and taking it to the Chokes 1 yard line (TD scored later). Keeping running those blitzes. That defense is going to get picked apart again.

It would not hurt my feelings a bit to have the NFL make a pre season rule, if the QB is touched he is down and not award him with any yards if he runs beyond the LOS

This would enable your starting QB to get more work and that is what pre season is all about.

Oh they may blitz the Raiders once, but when Kerry soft lobs a pass for Moss to run under it, that will cure that crap fast

Try that BS against a AFC West team and not the pitiful Cardinals Cheaps

Funny Bob, I have told you all offseason how KC had to Blitz to stop the run last year and your trite little answer was but we improved our run defense

Now Dennis Green makes the comment on how much the Chiefs HAD to blitz in the preseason and you think it is sour grapes. If the title fits....

The bottom line, is, we DO do it in the regular season.

I really could see KC putting in the starters late in the 4th Q to get a win.

You have Surtain, period. Everyone will throw at McCleon and then when Warfield returns, they'll throw at him. Surtain will be a lonely man this year.

I recall a preseason game a few years ago against the Bears where they sent Urlacher on a blitz and he hammered Griese for the sack, Shanahan was livid in the post game press conference about the Bears sending blitz packages all night and that play specifically.
