Chiefs v Texans: Sunday Night Football Open Thread

 

 

 

Chiefs v Texans: Sunday Night Football Open Thread

 

With the Los Angeles Raiders winning today, the AFC West can maintain their position as one of the best divisions in the NFL. The Raiders are, as of this moment, losing to the Baltimore Ravens (24-10) in Oakland but, if they lose, it should not effect the high standard for the AFC West teams because their QB, Derek Carr, is out with an injury.

 

The Kansas City Chiefs are up against an up-and-coming rookie quarterback in the Texans, Deshaun Watson. Watson has started the past 3 games for the Texans going 74 of 114 for a 64.9% completion percentage. While that doesn’t seem so very unbeatable, the problematic part of Watson’s game is his ability to run. He has 148 yards on 19 rushing attempts including a 49 yarder. When his pocket breaks down, he’s more than capable of breaking off big runs and keeping drives alive. Comparing him to Alex Smith: Smith has 18 rushes this season for 89 yards and he’s thought to be one of the best running QBs in the league.

 

Some believe that this game should not be as much of a challenge as the Redskins game. If the Chiefs front seven is not able to put enough pressure on Deshaun Watson, that may be the story of this game. However, the Chiefs offense is not the same offense as in year’s past. Period. It’s much improved. Alex Smith, for whatever reasons (the presence of Patrick Mahomes, the desire to stay a Chiefs starter the rest of his career, or who knows what) is having a career year and couple that with a rookie running back in Kareem Hunt who is setting records and becomes a focal point for defenses to stop, and Tyreek Hill whose speed must be accounted for in every moment he’s on the field, plus Travis “I’m an emotional guy” Kelce who can change the momentum of a game in one big play at any time… and this Chiefs offense will be a tough matchup for the Texans defense… with Watt or not.

 

My take on this game is as follows:

 

 

 

 

What’s your prediction? Go Chiefs!!!

    Interesting comment from someone on TV today about the problems of Big Ben. The comment was that last week, Pittsburgh ground pounded the ball very well. But, Big Ben is known to be aggressive so, today, he tried to return to his aggressive nature and throw the ball. However, he really did not have the same sort of zip on the ball and his passes were errant. So, the big question for their OC is which system will he try to use in the next few games?

    • ladner morse

      He should have retired.

      Jags anyone?

      • I don’t believe Big Ben should retire, personally. I think there is something else wrong — don’t know what happened to cause it though.

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      It’s just proof that Big Ben has just been a “game manager” all this time.

  • Agree with your view as posted. Contain and pressure Watson? Chiefs win. 49 of that 148 came on 1 run. he would then have 99 on 18 carries, manageable to say the least, keeping in mind they were across 4 games. I like the opportunity, even away, which is always a tougher proposition. So your comment to Reach is apropos.

    • ladner morse

      Why does Chiefs list look worse than the Texans. No fair! He pouts.

      • Laurels and limitations

        because 2 of ours are starting o-lineman. That’s huge

        • because 4 of them are held out — I have no injury report on any of them. Morse, LD-T and Ford are the only ones on the list that are injury list players and out. They are apparently sending a message to Wilson(I think).

          • Laurels and limitations

            Not sure what that message to Wilson would be….he’s no Singletary but I thought he had been playing well enough. not great, just aight.

          • dammit. Dallas TD. Yeah. Wilson. I think he fits behind DJ and beside Reggie. But I think this must be a big message to him.

          • Laurels and limitations

            yeah, I dislike Dallas from my days of being stationed in Texas. And yeah, looks like it.

          • my true experience with Dallas was working in Las Colinas for a period of time. Other than than, I hate Dallas — Fort werth I liked. Spelled licke that for appropriate pronunciation.

          • exactly.

    • Go Reggie. Time to Roll! We knew LD-T and Morse were out. I want to see KPASS GET AFTER WATSON. I want to see Watson’s butt in the dirt every chance we get. Hits matter, even if he throws it. Make him sore. Make him sorely watch the front three get his pocket pushed back in his face.

      • Laurels and limitations

        gonna see Texans go after the left-side tonight, I can promise you that. K-Pass is such an unknown right now where I have both hope and trepidation if he plays. So, so raw.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Yo L&L and Laddie….remember that conversation we had about scoring too soon?
    Did you guys see the Packers/Cowboys ending?

    • Laurels and limitations

      I did, I still fall on the side of scoring when you can but the outcome of that game sure points the other direction, lol.

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        I’m with you…you have the opportunity to score…you score.
        An argument could be made that had Prescott laid down on the one foot line with 4 new fresh downs and 1 minute on the clock, they win that.

        • Laurels and limitations

          sure does, but I suppose you have to trust your defense in those times also.

        • JimHarbaughsguys

          If your D can’t stop the opposing team from scoring with just a few minutes left in a game, after you score, you suck.

          • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

            Or you are going up against Aaron Rodgers….either or

          • Laurels and limitations

            Rogers has been causing defenses to appear to suck for a long time now, lol.

    • Chiefly Bacon

      I’m cautiously optimistic about this move. Ehinger seems near a return and Chiefs have Devey. Have to think they’re putting Erving in because they believe he’s the best option for this game. Could be an indication that Heck has already improved Erving.

      • Laurels and limitations

        I’m trying to stay in the happy thought of mind but the glass-half-empty side in me keeps saying that the move is due to attrition.

        • Chiefly Bacon

          That’s a very real possibility. If this move happened because the others are gimpy, it could get ugly fast.

          • Laurels and limitations

            but we’re not thinking like that, right?

            Correct 🙂

            LOL

  • larry mckinney

    So I am sitting in a bar last week, befriended a twenty something from KC, lives in Vail now. Too excited to wait for Game Pass replay. Watched the tight game and listened to the kid expose his fandom nature. Seems in his twenty seven years he feels he’s never seen good luck for our lads. Feels it is now genetically embossed on his personality. Expects the worst at all times. Never confident.

    Needless to say, I am not similarly mutated. Together we watched a nerve wracking win ‘gainst Washington. Kid said I had an advantage over him as I am easily old enough to have seen our AFL/NFL champions succeed and so, while he was over the moon with the win, I gave up a huzzah, fist bump, and moved on to today’s game while he exulted.

    It left me thinking how 27 years of disappointment would affect one, scramble the DNA, create zones of pessimism in a kid who obviously had a lot going for him. It is in the water, this pessimism. It’s a groupthink philosophy allowing plenty of company for those of us who cannot see past the misery.

    And it’s time to leave that behind. It’s time to expect winning football. Every week. Expect the Bowl, every year. Drink the Kool-Aid. Guzzle it. Remembering how long we’ve waited will be easily softened by the realization that we have ARRIVED.

    We will demonstrate this evening. Another tight one, but we solve the rookie, take several away late, and win in Texas. 27-19.

    Expect it.

    Didn’t have time to follow thru

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Like to have an analysis as to why KC can’t run the ball worth shit at the start of the game.
    6 rushes for 4 yards by Hunt

    • Laurels and limitations

      pretty sure every team in the league is going to focus on the League’s leading rusher, I’m guessing anyhow.

      • JimHarbaughsguys

        It’s a pattern you can’t ignore.
        Hunt gets tons of yards by games end. But almost all of them are in the 2nd half and especially the 4th quarter.

        Look at his yards by quarter.

        • Laurels and limitations

          Oh, I have and I’m not arguing nay of that. But I do think Houston came in tonight with the focus of shutting him down early and often.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    That sucks

    • Laurels and limitations

      what part?

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        Watt getting hurt…

        • Laurels and limitations

          agreed, he’s a solid dude.

    • mnelson52

      Injuries always suck. I always want to beat them at their best.

      • JimHarbaughsguys

        What would be really great is if a QB gets hurt on one team, then the other team takes their own QB out to balance it out.

        That would be interesting. Boring as hell to watch, but interesting none the less.

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        I believe we were going to beat them anyway….but now, if we do, the excuses will fly

      • Laurels and limitations

        I just hate injuries. I don’t like seeing people hurt as a general rule.

    Does it seem like all of a sudden opposing offenses are starting to resemble ours?

    Run D still a major concern.
    Wish you guys had gotten Foster.

  • ladner morse

    Finally stop a run play

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      Statistically, it was bound to happen.

  • Laurels and limitations

    wow, Bailey is ranked 116th out of 120 by PFF. Do they even football?

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Was that a -4 yard play tackle by Houston?
    I don’t know about taking the penalty there.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Took em out of FG range maybe?

      • JimHarbaughsguys

        Ends up working out at the end. But a -4 yards and they don’t get the play back is hard to take away.

  • mnelson52

    Stupid

  • Laurels and limitations

    uh, not sure about fielding that one…….

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      DAT isn’t famous for making great decisions

      • Laurels and limitations

        trying to figure out why he is still fielding punts actually.

        • JimHarbaughsguys

          Hill went in there for a few games, and tell me what the difference was between the two.

          • Laurels and limitations

            I think it is more of a coverage thing, and teams floating punts in order to contain…but Hill is night and day better than DAT. That was proven last season.

          • JimHarbaughsguys

            I’m not talking about last years play. Obviously Hill was better. He was one of the best ever last year.

            But that has been absent on his ST returns. If Hill was doing what he did last year, DAT would have lost his job and we would not have him return now.

          • Laurels and limitations

            Hill hasn’t been used in PR but 6 times this year. Toub has lost the services of Hill for the most part due to Hill’s increased use in the offense. But yeah, DAT does need replaced.

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    KC ST showing their “special” to the nth degree.
    What the blank is going on with return yards? Has KC had a single punt return that has been a “big” play?

    • mnelson52

      Not without being called back

    • Laurels and limitations

      Hill, 28 yards

  • Laurels and limitations

    man, Hill is fun to watch.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    If I here “game manager” from those two idiots one more time I’m going to puke

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      Keep a running tally for me will ya.

    • berttheclock

      The best “game manager” in the league is Tom Brady, yet, no one ever calls him that.

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        Very true!

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    They are dialed in on Hunt

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      7 runs for 3 yards.

      • berttheclock

        First run was for nine, then, subtraction set in.

    • Laurels and limitations

      yup, zero air.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    To the outside maybe?

  • Laurels and limitations

    Alex dialing up Conley more tonight than he has at any time since Conley has been on the team. Good to see.

  • ladner morse

    Conley to have a breakout game???

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Conley is rarely used on a vertical route though….mainly horizontal routes to get the first down.

  • Laurels and limitations

    note to self. Never, never ever, ever comment jokes about political conversations on twitter, lol.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      So sick of politics…..

    • mnelson52

      Never do anything related to politics

  • Laurels and limitations

    Harris toughing one for the 1st down.

  • larry mckinney

    Slimmer Andy will continue to run Hunt regardless of yardage early in the game. Why? So that, with Mercilus and Watt out for the game, Houston’s rotation is stretched, an drew Hunt and the Chiefs will,own the fourth quarter.

    • Laurels and limitations

      Hunt is going to get his. My guess is that Reid continues to MAKE the Texans account for him regardless.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Wow, they weren’t lying when they said they were going to focus on stopping Hunt

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Buttkicker dead center again

    • larry mckinney

      Wow. You are about a full minute ahead of Holtus’s streaming call.

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        I’m sorry….I hope I didn’t spoil it for you

  • mnelson52

    Hunt will break a long one late to get his average back up.
    We needed 7 on that drive.

  • berttheclock

    Did Kelce’s knee hit the ground?

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      No!

      • berttheclock

        Then, why didn’t Andy throw the red rag?

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          I’m assuming because the whistle had been blown

        • mnelson52

      no one in the league does.

      • ladner morse

        True but it’s time to go long to #10.

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          With as much as they are dedicating to stopping Hunt….I would make them pay with a dose of Hill

          • JimHarbaughsguys

            Need to block well enough to make that really effective

          • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

            They are not doing a phenomenal job, but I’m not totally disgusted

          • Laurels and limitations

            read a report that Houston was susceptible to crossing patterns, hence, Kelce and Conley should be used primarily. Sometime, Hill will have to be open though, I just hope Smith is staying ready for it.

  • Merlin

    Keep punting out of bounds. Chiefs will take the yardage

    • mnelson52

      Yes. With no chance of fumble

      • Merlin

        Yes, and you know a shank is coming. We’ll see a 20 yard punt this season

        • mnelson52

          Yes. Colquit already had one….lol

        • ladner morse

          League needs to allow a punt returner the option of returning those out of bounds kicks.
          😳

          • mnelson52

            They should penalize the punter like they do a kicker

          • Laurels and limitations

            THAT I can agree with.

  • Laurels and limitations

    Reid, pulling jokes out there, lol.

  • Laurels and limitations

    god, that was an ugly pass. Only about 10 yards too far, lol.

  • ladner morse

    Where’s #10 on those long ones?

  • Laurels and limitations

    crossing pattern,

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Yep….you called it

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    That was perty

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Maybe Reid needs to start dialing in those AS runs up the middle at this point unless he just wants to abandon the run altogether.

  • ladner morse

    Kelsey is killing em

  • Laurels and limitations

    damn, hold? BWAHAHAHAHA…on the defense!

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      On top of a decent run by Hunt

  • Laurels and limitations

    Usually it doesn’t take this much persuasion to get me to abandon the run game.— Andy Reid (@Chief_Walrus) October 9, 2017

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    My lands Colinsworth…..can you mention Hunts fumble again please??

    • Laurels and limitations

      that CC dude is a tool.

      • mnelson52

        Yes a rusty tool of the past

  • Laurels and limitations

    GREAT throw!!

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Beautiful job Smith!

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    This is where you really gotta be able to run it

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      Or not

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        Lol

  • ladner morse

    Angry Alex works for me.

    • Merlin

      Love how he is looking downfield when he gets out of the pocket

      • berttheclock

        Plus, that little jig of sorts.

      • mnelson52

        Didn’t see that much in years past

      • Laurels and limitations

        every time it would seem. That was absent in the past and so great to see now.

      • JimHarbaughsguys

        I’m not watching the game but…
        how much does AS have to look downfield when he is inside the 10 yard line?

        • berttheclock

          He stopped and put on a bit of a jiggle. He had a TE, Travis in the left corner with West to his right. The defense was not concentrating on West. There was a man covering him, but, he was behind him.

          • JimHarbaughsguys

            I’ll see it in a bit and be able to check it out.

      • berttheclock

        One major difference is the fact any sort of receiver down field starts looking for openings, ala what the Seahawks have taught all of their possible targets when Wilson scrambles.

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          I’ve noticed that too….like Conley and Wilson has been doing

          • berttheclock

            Remember when Wilson would slow down or even come to a stop on routes. Now, he keeps running.

          • i do, i do

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Amazing how NFL players have their best seasons when their future is on the line

      • Laurels and limitations

        it’s almost like true competition is beneficial to a team or something.

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          Lol

      • berttheclock

        Plus, notice how so many NFL QBs appear to get better in their thirties, whereas, the age of 30 seems to become a dead end for many other positions.

  • Laurels and limitations

    West has some wild ass hair. If I HAD hair, that is what I would do.

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Would have liked to have gone for 2 on that.

    • Chiefly Bacon

      That’s what I said. However, it is more experience for your rookie kicker.

      • JimHarbaughsguys

        If my rookie kicker needs experience kicking extra points, I’ve got problems.

        Besides, the guy was responsible for the first 6 points. He’s got experience.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Reading my mind

  • Laurels and limitations

    DJ got the ball, awesome stuff.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      He should keep that ball….it could very well be the last Fumble Recovery of his career

      • Laurels and limitations

        yeah, I’m about betting that he calls it after this year.

  • mnelson52

    Did he say Darrin Johnson got the fumble

    • Laurels and limitations

      surprised CC didn’t give credit to Tom Brady.

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        Blahahaha!!!!

      • mnelson52

        Hahaha

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Take advantage of this opportunity.

    • ladner morse

      Think Reid wants to run clock first … then score.

      • mnelson52

        I say score fast and get another TO

  • Merlin

    Chiefs are dominating this game so far. I did not expect that.

    • Laurels and limitations

      not sure anyone did, not like this anyhow.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Smith is avoiding pass rushers like a Boss these days

  • Laurels and limitations

    long ball is not on tonight, not at all.

  • Laurels and limitations

    Alright, I’m getting a Buttkicker jersey.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Lol

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Smiths depth perception tonight isn’t all to great though

    • Laurels and limitations

      wonder is he’s wearing his reading glassed instead of his bifocals.

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        LOL!!!
        You are on tonight man

        • Laurels and limitations

          my political joke adversaries don’t think so, hehe

  • berttheclock

    Cairo, who?

  • ladner morse

    Kicker doing well.

    KC could be up 28-0 if they could sustain drives.

  • mnelson52

    Don’t talk about their D players missing without mentioning our 3 backup interior olinemen

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Exactly!!

  • ladner morse

    Time for a pick 6

  • Laurels and limitations

    “another touchback”. That’s how you limit returns, just send it to the end of the endzone every, single, time.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Parker with a big run saving leg grab there

  • Laurels and limitations

    was that Ragland that just got sucked up?

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Alright……they have decided to run on us

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      Don’t know why teams keep trying to pass on KC D when they can run on them.
      Good for KC.
      Bad for them.

      • Laurels and limitations

        from the get go, yeah…but Houston might have waited a little long to start that tonight.

  • mnelson52

    I thought they would have a spy on the QB

  • Merlin

    Texans are running right through the Chiefs now. ugh

    • berttheclock

      Yes, and guess where Don’ta played? Remember how many wanted him to come to the Chiefs from Texas? He was a load in the Big 12.

      • berttheclock

        Jamaal Charles was one of his biggest fans.

  • ladner morse

    Acting like they’re up by 60 not 16.

  • Chiefly Bacon

    Reid to Sutton: “We gonna adjust before or after they score?

    • Laurels and limitations

      lolz

  • ladner morse

    Good thing the Chiefs fixed their run defense in the offseason.

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      Ha!

  • Laurels and limitations

    well, crap, lol.

    • ladner morse

      Double crap

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Alrighty then…..
    Ok…let’s get it back

  • Laurels and limitations

    now we have to listen to CC talk up New England for the next hour because Houston scored.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    I’d like to see a little offensive dominance now

  • berttheclock

    Credit should be given to Rick Smith, the GM of the Texans. With the exception of highly over paying a mediocre Osweiler, he has had several very good drafts, plus, he has stolen talent such as Lamar Miller from other teams.

  • Heilios

    Howdy fellas! Did ya miss me?

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      yeah

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Of course

    • Laurels and limitations

      who are ya?

      • Heilios

        That weird guy who doesn’t get the hint he isn’t welcome around these parts

    • ladner morse

      Some thing you hate to admit

      • Heilios

        Oh love you too Laddie!

  • Heilios

    The run D is atrocious tonight

    • berttheclock

      It is the exact opposite of the run D of the Texans.

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      They’re just setting us up for when they go all Red Zone D on Houston by stuffing 4 straight runs at the 1 to win the game.

  • Laurels and limitations

    West blew that dude UP!!!

  • Heilios

    Kelce has been lights out! I’m love the third down conversion rate tonight

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      Wish it would continue in the red zone tonight.
      What is Houston ranked D wise in the red zone coming in?

  • Laurels and limitations

    I still don’t like screens

    • Heilios

      Blasphemy!

  • Heilios

    Once again kelce!

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Wow!!!!

  • Laurels and limitations

    that dude should be ejected for targeting Kelce’s head.

    • Heilios

      Right on.

  • Heilios

    Kelce going in the concussion protocol

    • mnelson52

      Head hit ground hard also. When he got up though he was pointing at shoulders

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    When I was 33 I could run like the wind too

    • Laurels and limitations

      I just pass wind now, GET OFF MY LAWN!!

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        LOL!!
        You’re killing me tonight man

  • Heilios

    Smith has been great with the scrambling. He’s the reason we are ahead now

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      It’s concerning that he is the leading rusher at half time for a few games now.

  • Laurels and limitations

    I remember back when Jake the Snake played for Denver and used to bootleg out to the right nearly every play…used to drive me nuts!

  • Heilios

    So is Watt a torn acl or mcl?

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      ???
      That serious?

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        He looked pretty upset

      • Heilios

        Looked bad. He went in the ambulance so I would expect him to be really hurt

  • mnelson52

    We need this.

  • Laurels and limitations

    KELCE!!!

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      is he back or did he score?

      • Heilios

        He’s back

      • Laurels and limitations

        back

    • Heilios

      Boom baby!

  • Heilios

    Clowney hitting smith way late

  • Laurels and limitations

    dumb on Clowney

    • Heilios

      Really dumb. He had ample room to pull up

  • Laurels and limitations

    WEST!!!!!1

  • mnelson52

    Good moves

    • Laurels and limitations

      Juking, zigging, and zagging.

    • ladner morse

      He deserves an Emmy.

  • Heilios

    West! Great move!

  • berttheclock

    OK, fess up gang. How many “cut” West leaving St Joe?

    • Merlin

      I did

    • Heilios

      Nope! Ive always liked West.

      • mnelson52

        Me too

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      I did

    • ladner morse

      I must admit.

  • ladner morse

    That’s the west of 2015

    • Laurels and limitations

      not I, I cut DAT

    • berttheclock

      Better health for one very important thing.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    When I take a shower and go to bed with my har damp, it looks like Wests in the morning.

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Damn
    That is almost every game where KC gets a score (a TD at that) at the end of the half it seems.

    I felt they blew the chance with the turnover. This drive makes up for it.

  • Heilios

    So what does everyone think of Butker? Better or worse than Santos?

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      How would he be worse is a question I would have for you?

      • Heilios

        He did miss a field goal to start…

        • JimHarbaughsguys

          And Hunt’s first carry was a fumble.

          See where I’m going with this?

    • berttheclock

      Cairo, who?

      • ladner morse

        Hehe

    • Laurels and limitations

      much better leg, and he seems pretty damn accurate so far outside of his 1st kick,

      • Heilios

        That’s what I was wondering. Has he redeemed himself?

        • Laurels and limitations

          hehe, the first game, imho. Dude was put under a load and he fought through it. Think he kicked a 47 or so tonight already, plus he nearly clears the endzone every kickoff.

    • mnelson52

      To small a sample size, but I love his leg strength

  • ladner morse

    Cmon D

  • Heilios

    Finally a sack!

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Teams desperate to come from behind don’t always fair well against Suttons group

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Finally got him

  • mnelson52

    Gaines should have been tackling instead of pushing out of bounds to stop clock

  • Heilios

    Zombo had him dead to rights

  • berttheclock

    One interesting flag earlier was Torbert flagging Clowney. Torbert has the worse record of protecting QBs in the NFL among NFL ref crews.

    • ladner morse

      Protects the QB? Or not?

      • berttheclock

        In many games, it appeared that Torbert thought QBs were fair game.

        • ladner morse

          I see.

  • Heilios

    Why did the defender not get a flag for shoving Kelce earlier? Kelce would have been flagged and ejected

  • Heilios

    Hopkins getting heated

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Blasphemy!
    They called a penalty on the other team.
    Somebody tells the refs that penalties are an exclusivity that only the Chiefs reserve the rights for.

    • Chiefly Bacon

      Not tonight. Chiefs have kept it tight.

      • ladner morse

        See, nobody knows that since the Chiefs originally started in Texas… by rights… they own that state.

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          We were them!…lol

        • Laurels and limitations

          pretty sure the Hunts own a large portion of it, lol.

          • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

            Be more specific……..we have 16 people named Hunt

          • Heilios

            Did we lose a couple?

          • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

            Lol!

        • Heilios

          Like own own? I thought we went through this yesterday? Oh and btw Bosa did own Eli today

          • ladner morse

            Like “owning” another human? That is just wrong. Someone needs to explain that in an article.

      • Laurels and limitations

        yup one call for a lineman down field, that’s alright.

    • berttheclock

      This is the very first time in ages when the crew of Torbert has called more penalties on the opposition rather than the Chiefs. They worked the Pittsburgh-Chiefs regular season game last year and called more on the Chiefs.

  • Laurels and limitations

    Mitchell is a fighter, I likey!

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Access the penalty for taking his helmet off at the start of the second half…….wait, no penalty?

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Gotta put HIll back there here on this punt

    • Laurels and limitations

      halftime

  • Merlin

    work comes too early in the morning. I am off. Take care everyone and go Chiefs!

    • berttheclock

      BTW, great thread earlier today, Merlin.

    • Heilios

      Nighty night!

  • Heilios

    Halftime adjustments anyone?

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      More dirty Dan on the flying drop kicks

      • Heilios

        Ahh you mean the old dirt kicker play.

  • ladner morse

    West or Hint in the second half?

    I think West’s skill set is probably more suited to beating TX

    • ladner morse

      Hunt

      • Heilios

        Hunt. I love West but Hunt runs rampant in the second half.

    • Calchiefsfan

      Sure looks that way right now but as the Chiefs wear down that defense I can see Hunt start breaking tackles in the fourth quarter.

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        That’s been the case in the previous 4 games

        • Calchiefsfan

          Which is a much welcomed change from the last 4 years

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    I didn’t think they would go into Texas and do this in the first half. AS has been a bit off tonight, but it not for him, they wouldn’t have anything offensively, and they have shut down the wonder kid at QB.

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Just wondering why Houston ddin’t try to run the ball a lot after their last drive which got them down the field pretty damn quickly and all because they ran the ball.

    • Heilios

      They’ll make a halftime adjustment and not run the ball the entire second half. Lol

      • JimHarbaughsguys

        Kinda like Philly

  • Heilios

    I want to see Chris Jones get his first passing touchdown tonight!

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Did he play QB as a kid like Poe did?

  • berttheclock

    Something very eery about the games so far for the Chiefs. In every game, a top opposing player or two has been injured, yet, the Chiefs do not play dirty football.

    • ladner morse

      And it seems like most of those injuries are non-contact.

    • Heilios

      I wish they weren’t injured. 1 I never wish injury on anyone and 2 I don’t there to be any excuses when we hoist the Lombardi come February

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        And we will

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Did he say stratidrick West?

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Sure as hell sounded like it

  • Calchiefsfan

    Houston better figure how to stop Alex rolling out to his right or the second half won’t be much different for them.
    Of course Reid will just adjust and have Alex roll to his left, lol.

  • Laurels and limitations

    It must really suck to be Raider, player, fan, owner, waterboy….they are all just miserable…
    *caution*: language…

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA https://t.co/xlwO0UaJx2— Nick (@Njakey) October 9, 2017

  • Heilios

    MOAR JET SWEEP ANDY!

    • Laurels and limitations

      NOOOOOOOO!!!!

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Watson is only 4/12 for 60 yards.
    And I thought the secondary was supposed to collapse without Berry in there.

  • Heilios

    Houston sacking Houston

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      That’s good.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Haha!

  • ladner morse

    Wish they didn’t show those injury plays over and over again.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    That’s how I like my pass rush

  • Heilios

    Tyreek Hill! Sorry getting ready!

  • Heilios

    Wow hill ran the wrong way there

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      Somebody tell him to run the opposite direction that the guys trying to take your head off are running.

      • Heilios

        Sound logic.

  • Laurels and limitations

    well then, that sucked.

    • Heilios

      Yes. Yes it did

  • mnelson52

    STs coach is fielding the weakest looking STs that I’ve ever seen from him.

    • Laurels and limitations

      maybe he wants out of his contract or something.

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Geez. KC gets the opponent to go 3 and out, and the offense still starts inside their own 20.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Ok….when ALL of our return guys are getting waylaid immediately, maybe it’s time to address blocking assignments

    • Laurels and limitations

      outside the box thinking, THAT’s exactly what we want.

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      They get their direction from the OL pass protection coaches. LOL
      To be fair, they haven’t been horrible tonight it seems.

  • Heilios

    There’s Hunt. Told ya Laddie

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Does Hunt know he can go horizontal too?

    • Laurels and limitations

      he can sleep later, we need TDs right now.

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        Lol

  • Heilios

    Wilson!

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Mr. Wilson!!

  • Laurels and limitations

    WILLLLLSOOOOOOoooooonnnn!!!

  • Heilios

    Crap holding penalty

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Haha…Irving

    • Laurels and limitations

      I missed it, what happened? Oh, holding got it.

  • mnelson52

    At least Hunt is starting to wear down the D

  • Heilios

    Its Kelce back in yet?

  • Heilios

    Ross Travis going to give me a heart attack

    • ladner morse

      And your not old enough….

      • Heilios

        That’s the worst part

      • berttheclock

        Zach Cunningham was known for his sideline to sideline speed coming out of Vanderbilt.

    • Laurels and limitations

      I died already, luckily I have a AED right here for just such occasions.

  • ladner morse

    Oh boy

  • Heilios

    Our first punt

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Had Fisher done his job there Smith would have had the first down

    • mnelson52

      looked that way to me also

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        He gave up on the play one second too soon

        • mnelson52

          I’ve never been a big fan of running though on 3rd and 7

  • Heilios

    Hey Laddie how are you liking KC so far?

    • ladner morse

      Loving it. Just haven’t found a place to live.

      If anyone knows of a house for sale let me know.

      • Heilios

        What part of town are you looking at? There are a ton of houses in Olathe and Overland Park

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    This is so screwed up.
    KC got Houston to go 3 and out, but got the ball inside their 20.
    KC gets a few first downs before they punt at midfield, and Houston gets the ball at their 22?

    Man. The offense and D are doing their jobs here. The ST is keeping Houston in this thing.

  • Laurels and limitations

    they need to just show Mtichell the entire game, lol.

  • Heilios

    Dirty Dan saved our bacon there

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    I’m ready for another Houston turnover

    • Heilios

      Pick 6?

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        Sure why not!

      • Laurels and limitations

        I’ll take two. I’m greedy.

  • mnelson52

    Ive seen a lot more contact not get called

  • Laurels and limitations

    wow, ticky tacky call right there. Feet got tangled, never knew that was a foul.

  • Heilios

    Stuffed!

  • ladner morse

    Letting them back in the game.

  • Heilios

    Sutton needs to tighten up the run D

    • berttheclock

      How?

      • Heilios

        Honestly I don’t know but if I did I would be making a hell of a lot more money than I do now!lol

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    They are going to go outsiide

    • Laurels and limitations

      called it.

  • Heilios

    False start!

  • Heilios

    Good coverage by Peters there

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      My eyes deceived me there….it looked like a Peters pick

  • Heilios

    We are letting them run all over us tonight. Need to change something soon

    • Chiefly Bacon

      Maybe we should offer to give the refs a fruit basket if they call a single hold on the Texans when they do it every play.

  • Chiefly Bacon

    Refs ignore blatant hold on Bailey.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    We will get it right back..watch

  • Calchiefsfan

    Turn Alex loose Andy!

  • mnelson52

    Too close now. We need another TD. I really don’t want a nail biter

  • Heilios

    They aren’t going to let Smith leave in the off-season unless he screws up royally late in the season

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      I don’t see how they could honestly

      • Heilios

        They can’t. Let Mahomes sit for a few years ala Rodgers

  • Heilios

    I thought Kelce was cleared for a concussion

    • ladner morse

      Right

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Why?

    • Heilios

      Throw out at his feet

  • Heilios

    Hill!

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    There it is!!

  • Heilios

    Was he in?

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      It looks iffy

  • Heilios

    He got it!

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      I agree

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      Which means of course that they won’t give it to him since you guys agreed to it.

      • Laurels and limitations

        haha, don’t you use Murphy’s Law here!

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Not enough evidence to overturn the ruling

  • ladner morse

    Too close to call. Consequently. No change.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      The ruling on the field saved us there

      • Heilios

        Only because the ruling on the field was the right one to begin with! Boom!

      • mnelson52

        The throw and catch saved us

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          Could have went either way if the call on the field was an incomplete pass

  • Heilios

    Boom baby!

  • berttheclock

    Tyreek Hill is a football player, who happens to be very fast.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Look up fast in the dictionary and you will find Hills name

      • berttheclock

        Many other fast wide outs never seem to learn how to do that toe dance.

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          True

  • ladner morse

    A TD and extra point makes it 17 point lead: a thre point game.
    Must score.

    • Laurels and limitations

      would definitely prove beneficial.

  • Heilios

    What about Kelce?

    • berttheclock

      He had his bell rung earlier in the game.

      • Heilios

        He was cleared for as concussion though. I was just wondering why he is still out.

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      It’s 4th quarter now.
      Time for Hunt to get his yards and touches and secure the game here.

  • berttheclock

    For once, I would love to hear The Fat Lady start singing loud and clear.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Ugh

  • Heilios

    Maybe some miscommunication between Wilson and Smith there

    • Laurels and limitations

      Smith had to get rid of it.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Is that really the play you want called for Wilson though?

      • Laurels and limitations

        why yes, yes it is, lol.

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          You have been dipping into the old cooler one too many times

          • Laurels and limitations

            I tried to drink a beer, it went down the total hell I thought it would. Root beer it is now.

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      After a TO?

      • ladner morse

        Right. I don’t get that call with time to think about it.

        • JimHarbaughsguys

          Passing the ball in the redzone is harder. Why not run the ball down here?

          • Heilios

            Or bubble screen!

          • JimHarbaughsguys

            Only would have worked if Wilson was the QB and AS was the WR

          • Heilios

            Even better!Chris Jones could have blocked

          • JimHarbaughsguys

            With Justin Houston snapping the ball.

            Where do we go to become NFL OC’s? We got something here.

  • Heilios

    Reid should have dialed up a bubble screen!

  • berttheclock

    Earlier today while watching the Eagles’ game, they had a “Papa John’s” commercial on which showed Kelce scoring. I really abhor Papa Johns for many reasons, including how he had set up Peyton with so many franchises. But, the biggest reason he the owner said he could not provide health care for his employees as he would have to raise his prices and he didn’t want to put those costs on customers. But, he can give away franchises to Peyton, plus, make so many NFL commercials.

    • ladner morse

      Not only do I dislike Papa and Peyton but their pizza is the worst rated pizza as far as I’m concerned.

      • Heilios

        The sauce it nasty

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Has anybody returned a kick off from this kid yet?

    • Heilios

      One earlier

  • Heilios

    Dirty Dan wanted that one bad

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Atta boy Danny!!

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Oh…I thought he tipped that

  • Heilios

    Mitchell is lights out!

  • Heilios

    Hunt is ready for his 80 yard td run Reid

  • Laurels and limitations

    absolute holds going on and refs ain’t calling diddly- squat.

  • mnelson52

    Like I said, the games too close

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    When this game is over, Houston is going to look back at it and wonder why they didn’t run the ball 80% or more of the time.

  • Heilios

    He pushed off Mitchell

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Houston needs to find out where he left his old moves……he gets locked up regularly

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      In his knees.

    • mnelson52

      No help on other side

    • Laurels and limitations

      in his defense, Texans are holding horrible like.

  • ladner morse

    Cmon Offense… let’s get another FG.

    • Heilios

      80 yard td run by Hunt

    • berttheclock

      Or, at least a safety, eh?

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Not funny Laddie!!

      • ladner morse

        Wasn’t trying to be funny. It just seems that FGs is all this offense can do today. Same as last year.

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          I was kidding….the sarcasm actually was funny.
          It was sarcasm right?…lol

  • mnelson52

    Gonna need at least one

  • Heilios

    What is Peters screaming about?

  • berttheclock

    I’m beginning to believe The Fat Lady has been put into a lock box by Sutton’s so-called defensive schemes.

  • Heilios

    Peters had his panties in a bunch. His attitude is getting worse

    • Heilios

      If he doesn’t cool it I would not mind seeing him traded

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        There was that one time in college…….

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      He isn’t getting the INT’s like years past.

  • Heilios

    Hunt!

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      You called it a bit earlier, but I’ll take it now.

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Run the god damn ball into the endzone!!!

    • berttheclock

      “As you wish”.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Wow…DAT sighting!!

  • Heilios

    WHAT WAS THAT? A JET SWEEP? JET SWEEP BABY!

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Lol

  • mnelson52

    Good answer

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      They have done it in every game where it seemed like the other team was in control and taking the momentum back.

  • Heilios

    VIVA LA JET SWEEP!!!!

  • Heilios

    Going for 2?

  • berttheclock

    Who DAT? Now, who were the two bona fide so-called geniuses at this site who wanted to dump DAT for Akeem Hunt????????????????????????????

    • ladner morse

      Not me. I love DAT.

    • Heilios

      Ok I was ready to move on from DAT. I’ll admit it. Where’s my crow? I’m hungry

    • larry mckinney

      Hill Junior? He good.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Return game Bert…..return game.
      DAT has been stinking at it.

      • mnelson52

        STs as a whole have been stinking in my opinion.

      • berttheclock

        So, Akeem Hunt is better? He has only had one legitimate run back. What bothered me the most was they kept talking about his college stats, not his NFL stats where he has spent the majority of his time on various PSs.

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          I don’t think anyone said he was better….only to see what he’s got.

          • berttheclock

            Yeah, as they all wanted to see what Stanzi “got”, as well.

      • ladner morse

        Just need to leave DAT in as a WR and remove him from the return game.

        • JimHarbaughsguys

          I don’t think they know what to do with DAT.
          They know he has some skills, but don’t know how to utilize them

          • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

            He is like a blind squirrel

          • ladner morse

            They need to figure it out before cutting him and Belichick turns him into another WR great.

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          👍🏻

  • larry mckinney

    Expect it….

  • Heilios

    Jet

    • Heilios

      Sweep

  • ladner morse

    This offense would have caved in years past. Even without Kelce they get the job done.

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      No Kelce. No Charles.
      The whole reason why KC won games on offense in 2013 is gone now.

      Except….

      • ladner morse

        Yep

      • Laurels and limitations

        ….that KC brought in a shiny new QB and lit a fire under Smith’s ass.

        • JimHarbaughsguys

          AS won 9 straight in 2013, and 10 straight in 2015.
          All without the shiny new toy.
          That doesn’t explain anything.

          • Laurels and limitations

            Alex Smith is playing like everything BUT Alex Smith prior to this season. KC moving up in the draft and acquiring Smith’s successor explains everything concerning Smith’s undeniably elevated play.

          • JimHarbaughsguys

            This season is just evidence of what has long been known about AS.
            The guy truly excels when he truly understands the offensive system. He never had that in SF, and is now in season 4 of having it in KC.

            Drafting a QB had nothing to do with it. They could have drafted Foster (really wish they would have, then they would be an easy favorite to be in the Super Bowl THIS year) instead. AS has ALWAYS been on the hot seat in his career.

            Tell me the years where he hasn’t been, and I’ll tell you the years he has been. I guarantee you, those far outnumber the years where he isn’t.

          • Laurels and limitations

            stop it dude, this has been going on for ever….you are not going to say anything that has not been mentioned ad nauseum a thousand times already.

            Smith is playing like a brand new guy this year, it’s well documented and purely evident with cursory research. Smith is nearly halfway to his best TD total year of 2013 and it’s game 5 only. He’s also over a 1/3 of the way to his best year in total yards, again, early I the season. He’s also throwing over a full yard further on average. This is new ground and there is not preceding proof of this was in Alex all along. He’s never done anything even remotely similar.

            wish you would just sit back, relax, and enjoy it instead of trying to prove a false narrative unnecessarily.

            and it’s Smiths 5th season in KC.

          • JimHarbaughsguys

            He’s never had the system either.

  • Laurels and limitations

    well crap, it looked like a jet sweep and it was to DAT. Could have sworn I fired his 12 yards receiving butt already.

    • Heilios

      HEY DID YOU SEE THAT PLAY? MOAR!

      • Laurels and limitations

        lol, quits it man, ur killin’ me.

        • Heilios

          I texted Reid at halftime and told him to make it happen. We all know who’s the boss around here!

          • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

            Our wives?

          • Heilios

            Exactly!

          • Laurels and limitations

            lol, ssshhh, you’ll wake her.

  • Heilios

    How did someone get hurt on a touch back?

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      Non contact injury…
      ACL likely

      • Heilios

        I didn’t see it that’s what I was wondering

  • Heilios

    Peters not trying to tackle at all. Just going for the strip

    • mnelson52

      saw that

  • Heilios

    Holding

  • Heilios

    Hill!

  • Heilios

    Bwahahaha! Tyreek Hill!

  • Laurels and limitations

    Hahaha, I wonder if DAT could have done that?

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Hehehe…you’re bad

      • Laurels and limitations

        Haha, I know this.

  • mnelson52

    Shoulda punted out of bounds..lol

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    THATS a punt returner!!

  • Heilios

    I like the peace sign at the end

    • Laurels and limitations

      damn he makes that look easy

  • berttheclock

    I used to know a horse player who had played for the Cleveland Browns. He used to have an expression when a horse he had bet on got loose on the front end. He would start yelling “Be Gone, Be Gone”. That is what I have learned to yell about watching Hill.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      The dude is electric.

      • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

        Electrichill

  • mnelson52

    I believe that’s a winner

  • ladner morse

    Heart attack at risk fans happy now?

    • Heilios

      My heart!!! Oh I mean yes

  • larry mckinney

    As a famous Texan sang, “Turn out the lights, the party’s over….”

    • berttheclock

      You mean one of the very first picks by the Dallas Texans? But, he wouldn’t sign with them as Murchison offered him a better deal to “work” for his construction company until he could play for the Cowboys. That guy?

      • berttheclock

        I wonder how well Dandy Don would have played for the Texans/Chiefs instead? He was the first pick by Lamar Hunt..

      • larry mckinney

        He was a dandy, wasn’t he?

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Was that George Bush?

  • mnelson52

    I guess we start that bend don’t break crap

    • Heilios

      I hate bend don’t break.

  • ladner morse

    Why… I mean WHY… would you ever kick it to him?

    • Heilios

      So I have something to cheer for on special teams!

  • Heilios

    Cushing is out for peds right

  • mnelson52

    I would love to score one more time. I love scoring in the 40s. Especially against a defense that thinks they’re a God

    • Heilios

      Run up the score!

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Good eye Blue

  • Heilios

    Mitchell is blanketing Hopkins tonight

    • Laurels and limitations

      they have been flat out fighting all night. Mitchell has zero quit in him.

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Oh gosh….DAT running backwards again

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      Get him cross-eyed then.

  • Heilios

    So does Kelce have a concussion or not?

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      yes.

      Guy comes back in, and then hasn’t come back.
      That is a concussion.

      • Heilios

        Ok They just never said it

  • Heilios

    Holding. Crap

  • Heilios

    Hunt!

  • Heilios

    Do you hear the Arrowhead chant? Oh oh ooohhhooo!

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Was that Irving lead blocking for Hunt?

  • ladner morse

    Hunt has more guys touching him than Elvis ever did women…

    • Heilios

      I dunno you’re talking about the King there

  • mnelson52

    Hunt got his 100. I would take him and Smith out

  • Heilios

    Well Colquitt will pin them deep.

  • Heilios

    Colquitt saved us there!

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Andy….plays like that is why you never take your foot off the gas pedal!!

  • Laurels and limitations

    Colquit is too old for that stuff.

    • Heilios

      Apparently not! 😎

  • Heilios

    Dirty Dan was flying in with the ugly stick to lay out Miller so he wisely ran away straight out of bounds

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    We should still be on offense but Andy took a knee on that last drive!!

  • mnelson52

    Well I really don’t like bend and then break

    • Laurels and limitations

      haha, true

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Haha…me neither

  • Heilios

    Good coverage gains

  • Heilios

    Is that not holding Bailey there?

    • Laurels and limitations

      Houston has been getting away with that all night.

      • Heilios

        This was blatant. Hell they replayed it!

  • Heilios

    Conely had open fields in front of him!

    • berttheclock

      Sort of hard to run with a pulled hammy.

  • mnelson52

    grabbed knee

  • Heilios

    Well he is hurt. Maybe its the field?

  • ladner morse

    That was strong coverage. Mitchell drove his arm between Hopkins who had to pin the ball to his stomach to complete the catch.

  • berttheclock

    Damn! Another crucial injury to the Chiefs.

  • mnelson52

    Woulda had a TD

  • Heilios

    On the cart

  • Heilios

    Achilles crap!

  • Heilios

    Its got to be this field. All of the injuries

    • berttheclock

      It looked like a lot of give to the playing surface.

  • berttheclock

    Does Veach have Seantavious on speed dial?

    • larry mckinney

      Kemp or Chesson

  • Laurels and limitations

    that was ugly in the calf, wonder if it’s torn or something…

    • Heilios

      Isn’t that snap back the Achilles tendon?

      • Laurels and limitations

        not sure, I’ve never even heard of a calf muscle doing that.

    • ladner morse

      Didn’t look like an Achilles but more like a call tear.

  • mnelson52

    Conley done for the year and maybe part of next if the injury is what it looked like

  • Heilios

    With all of the injuries I just hope for a speedy recovery for all

  • Heilios

    Achilles for Conley

  • ladner morse

    If the Chiefs had taken Watson at #10 do you think we’d be facing Mahomes right now?

    • Heilios

      Yes. He would be airing it out and this would be a vastly different game

    • mnelson52

      yes

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Good question!

  • ladner morse

    Why do many Achilles injuries???

  • ladner morse

    Butker!!!

  • Laurels and limitations

    Ugh..this is from Sortnetdoc.net. It’s the Achilles.
    “and in the worst case a sudden snap is felt rendering the muscle unusable (“total muscle rupture”).

    With total ruptures a defect can often be seen and felt in the muscle, and above and below the rupture a swelling can be felt (the contracted muscle belly and bleeding).”

  • Heilios

    Who could Veach bring in to replace Conely?

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      Trade

      • Heilios

        For who?

        • JimHarbaughsguys

          Haven’t got a clue. That is Veach’s job

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      More Robinson?

    • Heilios

      Or do we see DAT get an expanded role on offense?

      • Laurels and limitations

        lol, oh god.

        • Heilios

          More jet sweeps?

          • Laurels and limitations

            lol, figured that was what you were inferring to.

    • larry mckinney

      Kemp, Chesson

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    Looks like we might see more of Robinson?

    • Laurels and limitations

      has to be him doesn’t it?

    • ladner morse

      You mean now that Conley appears done for the year?

      • Heilios

        And probably part of next.

      • drwillez37

        It’s crazy that this can happen

  • Heilios

    It is paining Collinsworth to say good things about the Chiefs

    • JimHarbaughsguys

      The Niners taught him pain in Super Bowl XXIII. It is all that he knows.

    • Laurels and limitations

      CC probably downs a couple mollies in order to not strain anything.

  • Heilios

    Should havr been a holding call there!

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Yep….he was frustrated with the non call

  • Laurels and limitations

    Jones was getting held so bad that he stopped to complained to the ref.

    • Heilios

      I saw that

    • mnelson52

      Yep. I thought he was going to draw a flag

  • JimHarbaughsguys

    Watson is getting tons of stupid cheap fantasy yards in this game.
    But KC kicked his ass when it mattered.

    • Laurels and limitations

      couldn’t agree more, garbage stats.

      • JimHarbaughsguys

        Somebody looking at the game stats will think Watson out-dueled AS with his 5 TD’s.

        • Laurels and limitations

          yup, they will be talking the Texans up all week about how they almost beat KC.

          • JimHarbaughsguys

            Watson was 4/12 after the first half for 62 yards when KC really took control of the game.

      He is still the best young QB who was drafted in the last draft. He has complete football sense.

      • larry mckinney

        I’ll hedge that, Bert. Best young QB who’s played, yes.

        • berttheclock

          No! Best drafted period!

          • larry mckinney

            We’ll see. Eventually.

          • mnelson52

            That is yet to be seen, but, he definitely has a knack for winning, no matter what his stats are.

          • mnelson52

            I also think tonight that he was a little lucky for his receivers to win every jump ball.

  • Heilios

    Jones was mugged on the previous play

  • Heilios

    Doesn’t matter what they do 5-0 baby!

  • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

    I know we won that, but……ah, oh well……good win

    • berttheclock

      Except for the injuries to the Chiefs’ players. Lots of tough work coming up and the Chiefs really need to get some injured players back.

  • Laurels and limitations

    crap it’s late. Had fun all but early come early tomorrow. Thanks for the conversation.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      Night man

  • Heilios

    Do you remember when everyone said the Pats were going 16-0? What about when they said the Chiefs would finish last in the division? Suck on 5-0 bit****!

  • Heilios

    Goodnight all!

  • Chiefly Bacon

    Never doubted it for a minute. Nice change. Also, it felt weird.

    • larry mckinney

      Yep, had it all the way.

    • mnelson52

      When it got within 6 after blowing a comfortable lead, and we couldn’t stop the run, I was worried.

      • Chiefly Bacon

        Nah. If they make it into the third quarter with the lead, it’s over.

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          I can honestly say I was never worried at any point…..we clearly had control from kickoff

          • mnelson52

            We definitely beat them a lot worse than the score indicates.

  • larry mckinney

    Good night lads.

  • mnelson52

    Chiefs just had to make a good game turn to crap and be a close game. I still say Reid isn’t aggressive enough. The last ten minutes he quit trying to score and just run the clock. Sutton thinks they can just bend, but they broke 2 or 3 times late. With a good QB and a good receiver, you can’t count the other team out, as this team just proved. I think this game should have been around 40-17. I am very thankful for the win and being 5-0 though. It seems to me that last year the Steelers got spanked like they did today, and then spanked us the following week. I hope it’s different this time. Steelers seldom lose 2 in a row.

    • Chiefly Bacon

      For what it’s worth, Chiefs actually had really solid coverage on those plays. Just circus catches by the WRs.

      • mnelson52

        yep, I mentioned below how lucky Watson was for his WRs to win every jump ball.

  • Chiefly Bacon

    Cam Erving looked pretty decent. Had the one hold, but it wasn’t blatant.

    • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

      I saw him lead blocking for Hunt at one point….

    • @ OL player in the making — maybe a lot more

  • good enough. Chiefs held Watson tight til the half and they both scored… Chiefs 42 though with a S/t TD. good outing offensively and S/T. Defense 2nd half? Not so much.

      Gonna miss him
