Time for Patriots coaches to reassess



KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There are many places one could start when assessing the embarrassing performance turned in by the New England Patriots in their 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. It’s all fair game, from quarterback Tom Brady to the overmatched defense.

But we’re starting on the sidelines with Bill Belichick and his coaching staff.

This is what Belichick said in his pregame radio interview on the Sports Hub: “I think our guys are ready to go.

Jamaal Charles-Knile Davis rotation is effective for Chiefs



KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Andy Reid started rattling off the things the Kansas City Chiefs did well in their Monday night thrashing of the New England Patriots and didn’t really know where to stop. There were that many things the Chiefs did well in their 41-14 victory at Arrowhead Stadium.

Reid lingered a little longer in one area, and that was a pretty strong hint about his feelings. The Chiefs got 199 yards rushing, 28 more receiving, plus three touchdowns from running backs Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis, and this seemed to please Reid as much or more than anything.

Pressure is on GM Reggie McKenzie with Dennis Allen out in Oakland



Dennis Allen’s turn on the hot seat is over — he was fired by the Oakland Raiders late Monday — and it is time for the man who brought Allen to Oakland to take his place over the flame.

Allen’s removal as Raiders coach probably won’t be be a cure-all for the bumbling franchise. While the firing was justified, don’t expect any quick fixes. The Raiders just aren’t ready to compete, which brings us right back to Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie.

Bill Belichick: We’re ‘going to play better’



In an embarrassing 41-14 loss to the Chiefs on Monday night, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has one big takeaway: We need to do everything better.

On both offense and defense, the Patriots were outplayed and outcoached by the Chiefs.

Offensively, the Patriots were pulling and swapping linemen around and the passing game could not get going other than a few passes to wide receiver Brandon LaFell.

“We need to do everything better offensively,” Belichick said during his postgame news conference at Kansas City.

Patriots QB Tom Brady: ‘Bad performance by everybody’


For Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, this was a Monday night he will want to forget. A 41-14 loss to the Chiefs on national television left the future Hall of Famer embarrassed.

“It was a bad performance by everybody and just want to make sure we never have this feeling again,” Brady said during his postgame news conference at Kansas City. “I think there’s not much we are doing well enough on a consistent basis — run game, pass game, consistently when we have to throw it, have to run it, convert on third down, red area.

Andy Reid fired up about decibel levels


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Observed and heard in the locker room after the Kansas City Chiefs’ 41-14 victory over New England:

Chiefs coach Andy Reid sounded almost as pleased the fans set the world record for crowd noise as he was about the victory: “I never thought I’d be fired up about decibel levels, but I am,” he said.
Running back Jamaal Charles played for the first time in two weeks and played well, scoring three touchdowns. But he acknowledged afterward his injured ankle was sore.

‘Unfamiliar territory’ for Patriots


Observed and heard in the locker room after the New England Patriots’ 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs:

A different type of loss: Defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, one of the team’s captains, said simply: “They beat us like we stole something.” Players talked about how this was the type of loss they aren’t used to absorbing. “A little bit of unfamiliar territory, especially for myself since I’ve been here we haven’t had quite a loss like this,” captain Matthew Slater said, before pointing out that the team was still tied for first place in the division.

Rapid Reaction: New England Patriots


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A few thoughts on the New England Patriots’ 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs:

What it means: The Patriots were embarrassed. Credit to the Chiefs, who played mistake-free football and took it to New England in all facets, while at the same time acknowledging that the Patriots were outclassed from the sideline to the field. New England drops to 2-2.

Starts with the coaching staff. There is a lot of blame to go around after this one for the Patriots, and we’d start with the coaching staff.

Rapid Reaction: Kansas City Chiefs


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A few thoughts on the Kansas City Chiefs’ 41-14 win over the New England Patriots at Arrowhead Stadium:

What it means: The Chiefs pulled out of the hole they had put themselves in with their 0-2 start. They’re now 2-2 but, perhaps more importantly, the way the Chiefs buried the Patriots makes it easy to see some real possibilities from their season. Their next two games are at San Francisco and at San Diego, but those games no longer look like insurmountable obstacles.
