[Kansas City.com] Quarterback Trent Green was sacked six times by Buffalo on Sunday, and has been sacked 13 times in the last three games.
He’s on pace to go down 41 times, highest total for the Chiefs since 1992.
That’s just counting the sacks, and not the hurries that force bad throws and turnovers.
In light of this – and the fact that left tackle Willie Roaf is unlikely to play in Sunday night’s game in Houston – the sensible thing would seem to be to load up Johnson again and watch him work against another porous rushing defense.
To the Chiefs, the prudent thing is to stay the course.
“The thing you don’t do is panic,” coach Dick Vermeil said. “Even as bad as we are, we’re the ninth-ranked offense in the NFL. The trouble is, you keep looking at what we were. We’re not that. We’ll get some of that back.”
“You don’t panic, but you’d better adjust. Can we do a better job of adjusting to our problem? Yes we can. The other thing is, the people who have had some problems will continue to get better. There are a lot of snaps in there where things are done awfully well. We know we can run the ball. We’ve got to be able to throw the ball.”
