    Or are you just hating on him because he's a former Texan?

    I thought his loss would have more of an impact than it has, although I will say I think your running game has taken a slight step back without him. Idk who your RT is, but I'm sure he's nowhere near as good and that might hurt the off tackle runs.

    Honestly it does me. I used to be one of the meanest sob's you have ever met, but would never do anything along these lines.

    Theres a difference between classy and redneck. Sadly not a lot of people know the difference.

    And no, that wasnt a shot at you. Just a fact.

    Nah never was a big Winston fan. While true that he's an excellent run blocker he's barely average in pass pro.

    His tirade comes as no surprise to me. He fancies himself as a media darling and had no trouble finding the nearest mic after the games while in Houston. Not to mention his numerous weekly shows during the week. His tone came across like he was the smartest football mind in the room and us fans were clueless. But it doesn't take Bill Walsh to recognize that whiffing on Kameron Wimbley multiple times along with a couple of drive killing false starts is a recipe for a loss.

    A large number of Texan fans concluded that he was prepping himself for his post retirement career because of his attraction to the media. He's only been in KC for 5 months and he already is the team spokesman and has tainted the reputation of a fan base that had been generally acknowledged as some of the best in the league over the last 40yrs. Now he's backtracking and saying that it wasn't 70000 fans, that maybe it was 700. But the damage has already been done. What a piece of work.

    I feel like this story is getting overblown. I seriously doubt the entire stadium was booing Cassel being injured? Idk I haven't seen the replay.

    It's like last year when Hope/Ruud got hurt, don't like you were happy that Babs/McCarthy got their shot.

    I thought what Winston did was good for his team, but I will boo or applaud what ever I want.
