Norv, Norv, Norv. Your head coaching tenure in San Diego is reaching its end. Romeo! Romeo! Wherefore art thou, Romeo? Oh, coaching the desolate mess that is the Kansas City Chiefs.  It's not looking very pretty for fans of the Chargers and Chiefs.Kansas City has but one weapon on offense, running back Jamaal Charles. He leads the No. 1 rushing offense in the AFC.Unfortunately for Kansas City, the Chargers have the No. 2 ranked run defense in the entire National Football League. Additionally, San Diego touts the usually elite quarterback, Philip Rivers. When Rivers finds his groove, points come in bunches.The Chiefs, with a stymied run game, will have no other choice but to put the ball in the air. Therein lies the rub. Neither of Kansas City's quarterbacks are franchise level players. Both, in fact, are barely good enough to be backups in the league. What choice do the Chiefs have then?Depending on their final record this year, somewhere between first and ninth overall in t...

Could Philip Rivers' Arm Strength be One of the Many Problems Facing San Diego?

The San Diego Chargers are struggling.  They went to Cleveland to take on the Browns and managed just six points.  The team is now sitting on a 3-4 record, tied for second-place in the AFC West.  The Denver Broncos, under Peyton Manning's leadership, are looking like the team to beat in the West.  However, San Diego doesn't look like they have the weapons or ability...
CHIEF CONCERNS

Crennel stupefied by Charles' usage

The Chiefs coach doesn't call the plays on offense in KC so, like fans, he also doesn't get why they only handed the ball to their best weapon five times during Sunday's loss. 

Week 9 Picks: Thursday Night Edition

Rivers has led a disappointing offense and it starts with him. Kansas City Chiefs (1-6) @ San Diego Chargers (3-4) Historically, the Chiefs and Chargers have been rivals since 1960. The their series is knotted at 52-52-1.  Why does this matter? Well, it doesn't matter at all, but it shows how equal these teams have been throughout the years.  The Chiefs and Chargers are...

Why A.J. Smith is the worst GM in football and should be fired

For years, many fans have nicked named General Manager A.J. Smith ‘The Lord of No Rings’ and feel that he is the worst general manager in the NFL. The picture to the right is New York Giants Quarterback Eli Manning, who was drafted first overall by the San Diego Chargers in the 2004 NFL Draft. The New York Giants had the fourth overall pick and selected quarterback Phillip Rivers...

Chiefs-Chargers Live Blog, First Half

It took me a while to pin down who Philip Rivers resembles with his new mustache, but someone on Twitter pointed the Rod Farva connection out to Ufford and the matter was immediately settled. FARVALARD! Also, Ufford had Photoshopping fun with King Staschyface over at SB Nation if you want to check that out. In all honesty, it’s best to keep all discussion of this game to making...

Romeo Crennel Isn't Sure Why Jamaal Charles Only Got Five Carries in Loss to Raiders

Romeo Crennel is a defensive-minded football coach, so he may not be well-versed in what most would call "offense." However, he is the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, which means that he has the final say over everything regarding his football team. This seems simple, at least in theory, which is why Crennel's response to the use of Chiefs running...

With Leather’s Watch This: An AFC West Snore

Yesterday, in perhaps his most prolific artistic contribution to society, our forefather Matt Ufford introduced us to Philip Rivers with a mustache, and it might be the only thing on this planet that makes King Laserface even remotely endearing at this point. Seriously, I just dropped his ass in a fantasy league for a bye week tight end. I’ve been starting Carson Palmer over him...

Week 9 fantasy football podcast

Each Tuesday during the 2012 fantasy football season Mike Harmon and John Halpin hop on the internet to talk all things football in their weekly Fantasy 15 podcast. This week Harmon and Halpin discuss waivers, Calvin Johnson, Philip Rivers, and Jamaal Charles in this week's podcast. >> Listen to Fantasy 15 for October 30 >> Listen to Fantasy 15 for October 23...

Romeo Crennel had no idea why Jamaal Charles only got five carries

In seven words, Romeo Crennel explained why the Kansas City Chiefs are so bad this year. Asked after Sunday’s 26-16 loss to the Oakland Raiders why stud running back Jamaal Charles only got five carries, the Chiefs head coach seemed perplexed. “Now, that I’m not exactly sure, either,” Crennel said, per Associated Press writer Dave Skretta. Yeah, Romeo, that’s a question...

5 Really Disappointing NFL Teams

  Chargers (4-4):   After a promising start in 2012 the Chargers have regressed into the mediocrity that plagued them exactly a year ago. Not only does the offense look lost, QB Philip Rivers (10 TD, 9 INT, 6 FUM) a veteran leader, looks very confused as his wobbly balls down field time and time again fail to hit their spots. With no solidified star at running back and a defense...

San Diego Chargers: Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#15)

Last week: 8 (-7) Record: 3-4 I’m not sure this is the same Philip Rivers anymore. I thought his high turnover rate from 2011 was an outlier and that he’d bounce back, especially since he played so much better in the 2nd half of last season (14 interceptions in games 1-8 and 6 in games 9-16). After all, Eli Manning threw 25 picks in 2010 and he didn’t have such a bad 2011...

The More That You Give, The More It Will Take

To the thin line beyond which you really can't fake. I know I used the "Fire On The Mountain" reference last week, but the Bolts are even more disappointing right now.  The Hurricane kept me from going to Cleveland.  Even before kickoff, this proved to be the right decision.  LaGuardia was closed on Sunday night and just opened up.  I would have been stranded...

Kansas City Chiefs: Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#31)

Last week: 30 (-1) Record: 1-6 The Chiefs have yet to lead in regulation this year. Meanwhile, when Head Coach Romeo Crennel was asked why Jamaal Charles only got 5 carries last week, he said “I’m not exactly sure.” I get that Brian Daboll calls the play, but having no clue why your best offensive player isn’t getting the ball is ridiculous. Both of them should be fired....
