Default Chief's Haley Throws Accolades to the Texans's OFFENSE

No mention of the Texan's defense (Wonder why?) But he does openly give the Texans offense its due.

Quote:
Todd Haley Says Texans Offense May Be Best Chiefs See All Year

Maybe the Kansas City Chiefs shouldn't feel too bad about giving up 35 points to the Houston Texans on Sunday. Chiefs head coach Todd Haley spent a few minutes gushing about the Texans offense calling them perhaps the best offense they'll see all year.

"I gotta take my hat off to that group," Haley said. "That is a good offense now. Maybe the best offense we see. Maybe, really, the best we see from a multi-dimensional attack. That quarterback played really, really good."

Haley likes the Texans offense a lot. As a former receivers coach, he had high praise for WR Andre Johnson. He also liked he strong rushing attack the Texans had in RB Arian Foster and RB Derrick Ward as well as mobility of QB Matt Schaub.

"This Andre Johnson," Haley continued. "I don't know if there's nayone better than him. He is a big time receiver. This back that is relatively unknown, and [RB Derrick] Ward, also a guy that I've always like and a guy when he's been up for free agency and things like that I like to talk about, he made a big play for them.

"This receiver is really good. Really good. The back obviously is good and they had a couple of them as I knew. It was more just when you have explosive players like they have things can happen that can hurt you because they're capable of making plays even when you do a lot of things the way you have to do them."

Context is important here because Haley worked with Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fizgerald. Many would consider Johnson and Fitzgerald the top two receivers in the league.

I agree that the Texans offense is very good and find it interesting that Haley suggests they may be a harder matchup than the Colts. If they really are the best then in a perfect world this marks the low point for the Chiefs defense in 2010.

He doesn't know Matt Schaub's name? Nice praise but that is a poorly written article.

They are the best. Problem is that 2nd best is always whatever offense we play that week and it's too close for comfort.

Does it bother no one else that coaches never seem to know the names of the players? It comes across as ultra arrogant.

You are supposed to have spent a week gameplanning intensely for us. Our "unknown running back" is leading the NFL in rush yards. There are tons of camera angles of him from behind. Surely you know his name.

Its not just the Chiefs. All teams coaches sound like this. Its like after the Colts game, I almost envision Kubiak saying "that quarterback of theres, whats his name, number 81 or something, he had a pretty decent game against us."

To be honest, they are more concerned with what the position is accomplishing. More concerned with the position rather than the name, and they associate with the number. I guess it is a film watching thing.

Todd Haley knows who Matt Schaub is.......he just didn't say his name.


Seriously, he isn't some network talking head, he's a NFL head coach. He probably watched just about every highlight Matt Schaub had so far this season when game planning against our team. I'm pretty sure he knows Schaub's name.

Coaches say "that guy" or "that player" all the time.....Kubiak does it alot when talking about Manning.

I got the idea they were just coach speak or something to say because of a sportsmanship thing when all along he was snickering behind our backs because he really thought he could have beaten us easily if his guys had just played a full 4 qtrs or if he hadn't had penalties.
The didn't come off as sincere to me...
