HUARD WAS "PLAYING SCARED" AGAINST THE FINS
A league source tells us that the Chiefs decided to make the change from quarterback Damon Huard back to Trent Green due in part to the fact that Huard was "playing scared" against the Miami Dolphins.
Per the source, several Miami defenders perceived that Huard was tentative against a physical front seven, and they concluded that it negatively affected his performance.
A career backup, Huard started only six games in nine years before starting eight straight games in 2006.
Hey, no one who plays in the NFL is a coward (except for the members of the Gramatica family tree). But it would be naïve to believe that some players aren't thinking (consciously or otherwise) about avoiding a hit. ESPN broke down video a couple of weeks ago of Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer instinctively lifting his left leg prematurely in order to avoid exposing his new ACL to injury. And Carson is no chicken.
These guys, after all, are human. (Most of them, anyway.) And human beings generally don't like to get the crap beat out of them. Some of us are less inclined than others to take a pounding, and Huard's lack of live reps over the years might have caused him to land in that categories.- PFT

He looked like he was trying to prove his '99 season was no fluke.

he knew that the Miami defense absolutely FEASTS on immobile, aging quarterbacks... and has for years... especially at home under the hot sun... he remembers from his days down here... what a shame this team is 3-6... we literally GAVE away games to Buffalo and Houston... gave them away...

Dumb post as it says league source ....what the janitor maybe :D .

Tobe part of NFL one has to be an increabile in attitude and talent.This is the best of the best and now the janitor is saying this is not true.If this is true KC would have gone got another QB as back up.A backup qb is suppose to back up the starter not be scared.

If we had some fire:fire: from the get-go, a half way decent OC, and Bell starting all along, then we'd actually be contending...what a wasted opportunity.
