Offense Finally Opens Up After Shouting Match on Sidelines

The offensive play calling for the Chiefs finally got the better of QB Damon Huard and RB Larry Johnson on Sunday, as the pair screamed at the coaches for what was being described as a too non-agressive game plan against the Minnesota Vikings.  As the team tied the game at 3 apeice with about five minutes left in the first half, Huard and was yelling at QB coach Dick Curl.  Johnson was flagged for spiking the ball, drawing a dealy of game call after he was tackled in the backfield. 

The second half finally saw some signs of life for the Chiefs, as tight end Tony Gonzalez and wide out Dwayne Bowe combined for 11 catches, 153 yards and a score.  With it came the Chiefs first win of the season – 13-10.  “Players were emotionally in the game and got mad,” coach Herm Edwards said.  “They got mad at calls, got mad at what we were asking them to do, got mad at coaches, coaches got mad at players.”

The Chiefs really have nothing to lose right now.  Their defense has been okay at best in keeping the team in games, but if Edwards and the coaches are going to hamstring the offense, they might as well get set for a 4-12 or 5-11 season.  Now at least Edwards and company can see what they can do when they open things up.  Now if Johnson can start to turn it up (held to just 42 yards Sunday), then we’ll really see what KC’s offense can do.
