The San Diego Chargers fired their defensive coordinator today and we kept the joke of one that we have? How messed up is that. As excited as everyone was Sunday, we still allowed 28 points and that was even with the Jets committing a brain fart and forgetting to run the ball most of the game.

Quote:<H1>Surprising Thigpen almost leads the Chiefs past the Jets


The Kansas City Star

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. | One minute ? 60 measly seconds ? prevented Tyler Thigpen from the memory of his lifetime.

Thigpen, in one of the great quarterback upsets of all time, outplayed Brett Favre and came that close to beating him. Then came the final minute and Favre's 15-yard touchdown pass to Laveranues Coles that lifted the New York Jets over Thigpen's Chiefs 28-24 at the Meadowlands.

Thigpen may get few more chances for career moments like this. The Chiefs were preparing for three-time Pro Bowl quarterback Daunte Culpepper to visit Kansas City this week and perhaps sign a contract.

The Chiefs contacted Culpepper last week after losing starter Brodie Croyle for the season because of torn knee ligaments.

"We're still talking to him," Chiefs coach Herm Edwards said. "We'll see where it's at."

Even if Thigpen couldn't deliver a victory ? he pushed the Chiefs to the New York 31 on their final possession, but his fourth-down pass for Will Franklin was incomplete ? he did bring them some hope until Culpepper is ready to take over.

"He played better than I thought he was going to play," said tight end Tony Gonzalez, who could have been speaking for just about everyone who followed the erratic Thigpen earlier in the season. "I don't care what anybody said, if they thought he was going to come out here and play the way he did, then they're lying.

"That's a credit to him. He just came out and said, 'Who cares what the critics think?' He had good practices all week."

Thigpen completed 25 of 36 pass attempts for 280 yards and two touchdowns, one to Gonzalez and the other to Mark Bradley. He threw no interceptions.

Favre was 28 of 40 for 290 yards and two TDs, but he was picked off three times. Brandon Flowers returned one for a 91-yard score.

Gone was the Thigpen who sprayed the ball wildly all over the field. He was replaced by a strong-armed, accurate passer who beat good coverage several times.

The Chiefs tailored their plays for Thigpen, who played in the spread offense in college at Coastal Carolina. They used a lot of one-back formations and went to the no-huddle frequently.

"It's obviously what I ran in college," Thigpen said. "It's just more comfortable. We'll probably put a lot more plays in this week. We had a select few plays this week for that. I imagine we'll broaden that up to where we can get out there and just get lined up, walk to the line instead of huddling up. It just gives you a change of pace where the defense can't sub."

Thigpen no longer has the specter of Croyle or Damon Huard hanging over him. Both are out for the season because of injuries, so the Chiefs couldn't be tempted to pull Thigpen from the game.

Having ownership in the job seemed to help Thigpen.

"When he's in the huddle, it's his huddle," said Dwayne Bowe, whose early-week prediction of a big game from Thigpen sounded like false bravado. "It was just his preparation. He's been in my ear all week, telling me the things he's seeing. He's growing as a leader. He showed some poise out there. We came up short, but he got better."

Still, Thigpen couldn't outscore Favre. The game loomed as maybe one of the biggest quarterback mismatches in NFL history, a future Hall of Famer against a second-year player who began the season as a third-stringer and inherited the job only because of injuries.

Thigpen admitted to watching Favre when the Jets had the ball.

"I'm always out there watching on the JumboTron, just watching what he does," he said. "You always can watch another quarterback and pick up just one little thing."

From Favre, he learned how to operate the two-minute drill. On the winning touchdown, Favre picked on reserve cornerback Dimirti Patterson, playing in place of the injured Patrick Surtain.

Still, the Chiefs were encouraged by Thigpen to the point they could see him eventually winning such a game.

"He gave us a chance to win," Edwards said. "He didn't turn the ball over. He didn't do everything perfect, but I thought he played pretty good against a good defense.

"For a guy who's only started two football games, he kept us in the game. He made some nice throws. It's something we can build on."

I want to see more of him. What I saw yesterday surprised and impressed me. If he can play like that with consistency, then maybe this team is not as bad off as we think. </H1>

I HATE IT! No Sunday night Football. The damn World Series is on. Now I dont have anything against baseball. I have nothing against fans of the game. What i do hate is the fact that we dont have Sunday night football. Why cant baseball use this Sunday as a travel day. Or play a day game. This is why this weekend is the 2nd worst weekend during football season.

Eh? Whats the first you ask? Simple.

Its that damn so called bye week the NFL has the weekend between the Championship games and Superbowl Sunday.

Well lets start up the old traditions. We have the NY Bretts today. Some think this game is the only chance to get another win this year.
