It's one game into the NFL season, and the Chiefs’ G.M. and head coach are already on the bad side of a lot of fans around here.
It takes only one rotten game to get us started and for good reason.
Let me ask you this: Is there anyone out there who feels Romeo might be the wrong guy for this job?
It’s not too soon to talk about it. It really isn't.
The Chiefs have had three head coaches in the last five years, indicating there's not a lot of patience in the Hunt family since Lamar passed away.
Romeo got the job for two reasons: He's a good friend of Scott Pioli's, and the players love him. That might be his main issue.
I've felt from the beginning that Romeo was too soft.
He developed a relationship with a lot of these guys when he was the coordinator. Making the transition to head coach with the same organization while cracking the whip is not easy to do.
This team appears soft.
The new CBA has taken the toughness out of practice with virtually no real contact work.
Romeo is perceived by many as the lovable grandfather type, and sure, that's a quality we all want in our grandpas -- but not in the head coach of our football team.
This defense, which is Romeo's baby, was awful in the opener. Losing a couple of players hurt, but come on. It’s the NFL. You must adjust.
Matt Ryan threw for nearly 300 yards and did it in basically three quarters.
There was no pass rush. None!
Then Romeo delivers this little nugget after the game: "It's encouraging to see you can be close on a play."
It’s encouraging to get close to the QB?
Why praise your players for getting close? They're supposed to get the quarterback, and they gave up 41 points for crying out loud.
Look, I know the blame starts at the top with Clark Hunt, who hired Pioli, who hired Romeo.
But you can't fire ‘em all, so pick your poison.
The Hunt family's first head coach lasted 15 years. The last one to get whacked didn't make it three years.
At this rate it’s a coin flip who goes first -- Pioli or Romeo.
They both could be on a short leash if things don't improve in a hurry at Arrowhead.
That’s Jack’s Smack.
