Advice to coaches and Trent
by C.K. Rairden
Two performances in a row that were very
difficult to watch. Lots of mistakes, and plenty of blame
to go around. Get a pen, a pad and take a memo
From the Chiefs coaching staffCan someone come
and set my VCR clock? Its been flashing 12:00 for
years. Can someone help me manage the game clock as well?
To the Chiefs coaching staff
Your QB is struggling; Pittsburgh is keying on the pass.
Hand the ball to Priest Holmes before the fourth quarter.
To the Chiefs coaching staff part II
Can you pinpoint when it was you decided to abandon everything
you talked about during training camp?
To the Chiefs coaching staff part III
An inexperienced Snoop Minnis and injured Derrick Alexander
are the worse starting WR tandem in the NFL. Why do you
continue to attempt to feature them?
To the Chiefs coaching staff part IV
Trent Green has been off all season. What makes you think
he is going to improve unless you run the ball?

To anyone who wants to catch a pass from Trent Green
Apparently its hard to catch his passes no matter

Throw the shorter routes. Stop aiming the ball. Realize

To Trent Green part III
This team is not the Rams. Mistakes returned for TDs
will cost you games with this lackadaisical offense.
To Trent Green part IV
Throw the ball away. Understand that you have no wide
receiver that can make a play and stop throwing into double
To the Offensive Line
Green is off to a poor enough start without getting hit
on every pass attempt.
To Priest Holmes
Thanks for a bright spot in an otherwise dismal season.
Can this man get the ball more?
One thing: Going low on the blitzing LB isnt
working to well. Greens ribs can tell you that.
