    Re: An early preview of the Chiefs



    All of these AFC games, home or away, should be viewed as playoff games anyway, due to the possible down the road implications. I wouldn't sleep on the Chiefs or whatever they've done this year against other teams.

    That being said, I say we win because of Flacco and his history of beating teams he is familiar with.

    Our defense still gives me reason for doubt, but my offense tells me, we are never really out of a game anymore.

    One curious note, that sugar huddle that we run seems to use a lot of vocal audibles. Is that the reason it was sort of nixed in Philly or did Cam/Joe get cute? I'm using that game since that is the only away game we've had so far and we seemed to have kind of got away from many of the things we do well in that game. If so, I would ask, why we don't seem to have a contingency for crowd noise if that is the case. I just don't like to feel like we are limited in away games just because of an outside of the field factor. Thoughts?

    While it is a limited body of work here are KC's ranking in terms of both defense and offense

    Defense
    Total #16
    Pass # 12
    Run # 23

    Offense
    Total #1
    Pass # 16
    Run #1

    So the key is making Cassell beat us. I know......be careful what we wish for given our issues especially in the pass defense

    If we think Cassells can't beat us we have another thing coming, up until thursday night weeden look like hot butter shit, then he strolls into Bmore and against our defense had a career night with receivers i cant even remember. CASSELLS scares me death against our 27th rank defense.

    After looking at KC numbers a little more I'm going to see if the trends we are seeing with this team continue against San Diego. Their front seven maybe good on paper but they've only gotten to the QB 5 times in 3 games compared to nine times for us. Furthermore their OL has given up 11 sacks compared to our 9.

    I don't think anyone believes that yet...at least I hope not. We just need to make Cassell throw it and get to him in the process. Thankfully we'll have 10 days to prepare for them

    pees has to do a better job, i understand not having suggs yave affected what he can possibly do a great deal, but the defense seems so vanilla and predictable, theres no creativity, much like mattisons defense with that middle backer blitz or ray split wide right or left on the blitz, its the same ole, no disguise to his schemes at all.

    Well the good news is that the Ravens would have had 10-11 days to come up with something against the chiefs and just remember that this season is a marathon and not a sprint. It's an old cliche but I'm confident that at some point the ravens troubles on defense will stabilize.I do hope that Suggs tweet of 3 down and 3 to go indicates an early return though

    I'm sure hoping so because we NEED Sizzle back in a bad way.

    Somewhat misleading (at least on defense) as two teams have all ready played one more game than them and that's based on total yards

    Look at points per game,rushing yds per attempt,and passing yards per game.

    KC's defense is 28th with 33 points a game.

    Rushing defense they give up 4.7 yds per attempt.
    That's 28th in the league.

    Passing defense they're 12th with 225 yds per game.

    On offense going by points per game they're 17th @ 22.7 pts per game.
    Rushing they're tied for number 1.(with Buffalo @ 5.6)
    Passing they're 16th with 250 yds per game.

    Re: An early preview of the Chiefs

    Called it as a loss at the beginning of the year, and still think it will be one. We just don't play great on the road. Hillis has had his way with our D and a much better front 7 than we're sporting now. The lack of a pass rush will make Cassel look like a probowler, all he has to do is matchup Bowe on CWill and that'll gain them some points right there.

    Bottom line I see them winning a shootout of a 34-31 variety.

    Not happening. Your not beating the Ravens when you have the 28th ranked defense and Matt Cassell at QB. Cassell is tied with Sanchez for worst QB in the NFL IMO. Our D isn't what it used to be, but Cassell will find a way to lose that game.

    The one thing all those road games have in common last year is tough defenses. Something the Chiefs are lacking severely.

    The Chiefs are not good.

    The question is whether or not the Ravens can get up emotionally for the road game against an inferior opponent. I think they'll be hungry after 10 days between games. I'm sure they're watching how the Chargers have forced 6 turnovers today.

    What's this I hear about a dangerous Kansas City team?

    If we had the defense we had last season? I so would not be worried about this game.
