    Losing Moeaki is huge. He’s got a ton of talent. Sadly, this wasn’t entirely unexpected. He was injury-prone at Iowa. Hopefully Leonard Pope can step his game up.

    Great job Haley playing him in the fourth game. Worried about your players the first two weeks then play your starters most of the first half in the fourth game? KC seriously has the most egotistical coach in the league. Hope getting rid of Weis was worth it as I don’t think anyone else will get the production out of Cassel as he did.

    Yes, Haley is a stubbon POS but Weis is a fat POS who did nothing at ND, rode the Pats for 5 years and was an OC for 1 year at KC…

    Zorn will do more for Cassel than Weis ever did, Ask Flacco. If Weis is so sought after why is he the 2nd OC at a college program?

    Moeaki had a history of injuries so this doesn’t suprise anyone. Sure it sucks but if an injury proned TE is the only real loss you have in an off-season I’d say you’re doing pretty good.

    i drafted him in the later rounds as my sleeper on thursday.

    not but ten minutes later he gets injured.

    Thanks Pal.

    Game 1, Bills win.

    That’s 27 names on the report….in the 1950s there were about 36 men on a roster….so this is almost like cutting a roster from that era.

    That’s a lot of players that will now be looking for jobs.

    Aaron is exactly right. Haley ties to be a hard a$$ like Parcells but without the coaching talent. I never thought I’d miss Herm edwards

    how long do we have to wait before we put guys on the practice squad?

    Is Tony Moeaki a name of a coffee?

    Haley, under fire for putting first stringers in the line of fire during a meaningless preseason game, referred questions to a spokesman who said “Act a a$$ wit it, back ya a$$ wit it.”

    OK so an injury-prone player gets injured and now Todd Haley is a worse coach than Herman Edwards… haha wow bro

    I’m actually surprised they cut Cody Slate now, it looks like he could be a receiving TE. Guess it falls to Pope. Maybe now they will have more sets with Breaston, Charles, and McCluster all out there at once.

    BTW Todd Haley has coaching talent.

    Shocking they kept Jeremy Urban. He is so slow.

    The Chiefs receivers can’t get separation.

    Sabby Somethinganother vs. ANYBODY and Terrance “don’t hit me in the hands” vs. Verran Tucker…..What Happened???

    I cut Mike Cox once too. Hurt.

    –Arian Foster hates your soul… If he finds you tell him I said thanks I was all ready to pick him 1st till I saw his “anti-awesomeness”

    ________________________________________
    Weis is a craptacular HC, no doubt. But he’s the real deal as OC and as a QB coach.
    I can tell you as a Pats fan he “rode “nothing. He was a great gameday playcaller and I still miss him. Maybe Bill O’B can eventually make me stop missing Charlie, but he hasn’t yet.
    He’s a stone cold genius at getting the most out of QBs. If Quinn and Clausen hadn’t had him as their coach they would have been midround picks probably. They are both out of their league in the NFL so far. He helped Cassel tremendously also. Maybe Weis finally realizes that his actual talents are: OC and developing QBs and not being in charge of a program or team. If so, he’s smart. A lot of Peter Principle guys never realize that.
