I’m not agreeing with everything Winston said, but most of it I did. I think if more fans would spend less time being offended and listening to what Winston put out there they’d simmer down. It’s like a plate of spaghetti. Fans are throwing every gripe into it, everything bad has to do with everything Winston said.
Fans wanted Winston, now they say fire Winston.
Fans want Winston fired and gone from the roster. For conduct detrimental to the team. Really?
The same guy that every fan wanted sending tweets, texts and letters to. Now Winston’s a nuisance for sticking up for his quarterback?
I don’t get this. Some of what Winston said put me off because I wasn’t the guy cheering when Cassel got hurt. Now Winston is public enemy no.1 along with Cassel and Scott Pioli.
Speak up for Winston and you might be added to the list.
This conversation has taken a totally different direction than intended by Winston. Somebody needs to eat crow and move on. I emphasize “move on”.
This situation has been fed and has grown to massive proportions when it should have never went there. Eric Winston is a good player and the Chiefs need a good right tackle. Let’s get back to football.
Like I said, Winston was emotional and said things he didn’t have time to refine. But take a look of the picture with Cassel laying prone and #74 kneeling next to him. Winston was right there peering down at his QB while hearing what he felt was fans cheering Cassel being down. A guy Winston should have protected.
I’m sure that ate at Winston into the locker room.
Being a military guy it’s all about the person next to you. Somebody comes after him he’s coming for you. That’s the code and while not soldiers football players do play a very physical and dangerous game. Football players stick up for each other.
Cassel’s not good, my opinion, many Chief fans know that. But like an onion let’s peel back the layers.
Separate Cassel the football player from Cassel the person.
Give Winston a break! I’m not demanding Winston’s job because he spoke out. It’s all right for fans to speak out, but not cool for Winston the player and as Cassel’s friend to do the same?
This whirlwind has grown legs and is storming Arrowhead like a big monster. There’s a lot of white noise and it’s taking away from the real issues. Problems that need fixed some just tweaked, but this drama is making everything seem catastrophic.
It’s easy to get sucked in. At first I did, but fans need to be rational with this.
I think it’s time for fans to stick up for Eric Winston and dispute the notion that he needs to leave Kansas City.

Good day, Chiefs fans!
