PFTV looks at the K.C. culture change

Not long ago, new Chiefs coach Todd Haley benched receiver Dwayne Bowe.

As Gregg Rosenthal pointed out earlier today, it appears that the move has had some short-term success.

Our last new PFTV segment for the week ponders whether the culture change will bear fruit for a team that has won only six games over the past two seasons.

  1. Benching Bowe was a good move. Coach Tomlin did the same thing when he took over, putting sacred (and very, very large) cow Casey Hampton on PUP when he failed a run test.
    BTW, where’s the guy who used to post song lyrics? Florio doing that hand gesture thing was a dead ringer for “Walk Like an Egyptian” Lol.
    PS – thanks MF for fixing the NBC player to accomodate Firefox! whoo hoo

  2. I hate to say it, and I know it was only the first preseason game, but they looked an awful lot like last year, especially running the ball was non-existant. And who is going to catch some balls, D-Bowe is the ultimate fantasy receiver who could catch 120 balls just because he is the only target.
    Still I like the way Pioli and Haley are doin business, it’s about discipline, focus, stayin in shape and commitment to the chiefs.

  3. The rebuild that is most overrated in this year’s NFL, and most likely to fall flat on it’s face.
    I take the under on season victories for the Chefs

  4. Florio,
    You need to talk to your NBC tech guys. This flash player is perhaps the worst I’ve ever seen. It restarts all the time and I am unable to get thru a video.

  5. Anybody who follows Herm is going to look good by default.
    Herm sure did like the Vick signing.
    Wonder what it means?

  6. Let’s talk about the culture in Oakland- I believe it was on their first possession Thursday night JaMarcus threw a long ball to butterfingers and it fell incomplete. The guys calling the game praised the effort, as butterfingers was almost in a position to grab the deflection. They didn’t comment on the ball hitting a cowboys defender in both hands or how the interception was broken up by cowboys defender #2.

    Uhh, the topic reads “K.C. culture change”.
    There is no culture change in Oakland. It’s the same inept, losing culture. And it will always be that way until that crusty, old, senile Al Davis gives up authority in personnel decisions.

  8. KC was not near as bad as their record last year. They were in almost every game last year. The problem is and has been a lack of OL along with the worst defense in the league. If Cassel is indeed an improvement and the OL can actually block they could have a good year. The were only 3-4 points a game last year from being a .500 team.
    That being said it will be hard to match the effort the Cheifs put in last year. It is hard to say a 2 win team played well above itself but the Chiefs did last year. The youngest team in the league with by far the worst talent. They may be a better team this year but not play as well. Certainly they should exce eed the 2 wins they got last year. But I doubt they will be able to be as competitive every game or put in the kind of effort they put in last year.

  9. @VonClausewitz: I was having the same problem. In my case, the problem was caused by the AdBlocker Plus Firefox add on. I had to disable it for this site.
