Was this some sort of joke?

Let me get this right... the Miami Doplhins were 6-10 in 2006, followed by one of the worst early drafts in years (passing on Brady Quinn to take Ted Ginn Jr at #9). Did I mention that they also traded a wide receiver to a division rival? Wes Welker to the Patriots, who finished the season w/ 1,175 yards and 8 touchdowns? The Dolphins were a mess when Nick Saban bolted for his "dream job" and Cam Cammeron managed to dig them in to an even deeper hole with a disastrous 1-15 2007 season.

In December 2007, the Dolphins brought in Bill Parcells as vice president of football operations, and appears that he has done more with his team in 8 months, than Carl Peterson has in 20 years with the Chiefs.

It was stunning just how bad the Chiefs looked Saturday night. The TV guys kept bringing up the point that the Chiefs "didn't really game plan" for this game. Excuse me? I see, they just rolled in to Miami and let the starters play for almost 3 quarters, and didn't really put much thought in to it? Most coaches won't take a dump w/o a game plan, so how in the world could they not have one for a game?

I would think this would be the ideal opportunity to devise a plan of attack, force it down the rookies throat all week, and see how they react. It's great to see that a guy can make a tackle... but can you teach him a scheme in a week and can he execute it on game day? Ridiculous. That game was an embarrassment.

The Chiefs better be careful... the fans have been more than patient as this organization has bled them dry for years and filled our heads with promises of being one player away. Now that they are forced to rebuild, due to inept spending and coaching (a-hem, Dick Vermeil, Shawn Barber, Kendrell Bell etc...), they better damn well be prepared each week.

What would happen if in a few years when they unveiled the New Arrowhead, and no one showed up?
