Chiefs Win, Control AFC West

The Chiefs Defense came up big time and time again on Sunday to beat the Broncos 10-6. No, it wasn't pretty, but a win is a win. That coupled with a Raiders upset at San Diego have the Chiefs in control of the AFC West. The Chiefs kept it interesting all day with their inability to score (or lack of foresight to kick the field goal in a tight game.) Penalties really hurt the Chiefs offense all day long as well as a very stingy Denver defense, particularly in the passing game. Dwayne Bowe was held catchless by Champ Bailey and others as he was double-teamed all day. Matt Cassel was again efficient going 17-13 for 196 yards and a TD (again no INTs - and 158 consecutive passes without an interception). Jamaal Charles was steady with 116 yards rushing. The return to action of Dexter McCluster was a much needed boost. He had a couple of catches.

The real story for the Chiefs in this one was the Defense. They were excellent. Brandon Carr, especially, but the whole secondary gave Orton fits. The Denver quarterback was just 9-28 on the day, OUCH! Tamba Hali had two sacks, one of which he forced a fumble and recovered it (Derrick Thomas Style).

San Diego's unexpected loss to the Raiders give the Chiefs a 2 game lead in the division. A win next week in San Diego would all but clinch it (barring the Raiders winning out). Whatever happens, it sure is good to play meaningful games in December, watching the scoreboard to see what other teams are doing, in short, it's just good to care again.

Chiefs Thumped by Broncos, Haley Refuses Post-Game Handshake

There was no drama during the game, at least not after the Broncos first drive. It was clear after the Broncos scored the first of many touchdowns, that it was going to be a long day in Denver. The Broncos went on to a 35-0 first half lead and a final score of 49-29. There really isn't much to be said about the game itself other than what is painfully obvious. The Chiefs defense was beaten badly by the Broncos offense, and the Chiefs offense wasn't going to do anything to keep up. There was certainly enough blame to go around.

Now to say the Chiefs are done for the year, that is just stupid. This team is still tied for first place in a weak division thanks to their 3-0 start, and there is still time get the ship righted. Injuries in our secondary have been costly, and Dexter McCluster certainly can have a positive effect on our offense when he (hopefully) returns next Sunday. A very winnable game is upcoming at HOME against the mediocre Cardinals and home games against Denver and Oakland still remain on the schedule.

All the drama in this game came at the traditional post game coach greet at midfield. Todd Haley refused to shake Josh McDaniels' hand as referenced in the above picture. Instead he was given a finger and a stern message of some sort that at least up to now remains unknown. The speculation is that Haley took exception to the fact that all of Denver's starters were playing until the end of this game, in contrast to last year when the Chiefs throttled the Broncos in Denver, Haley called off the dogs - including sitting down Jamal Charles who had a shot at the single game rushing record. I personally have no problem with a team "running up the score" - if you don't like getting your ass kicked, then play better. But, whatever the reason, I like the fire that Todd Haley has - it will certainly add a little more spark to the rivalry. I don't like that little prick McDaniels either - Fuck him.

Denver Chiefs 2010 - Must Win Game for Chiefs

Chiefs @ Denver today a Must Win Game for the Chiefs
by Kansas City News

The Chiefs go into Denver today after a bitter loss to the extremely weak Oakland Raiders, who lucked out with a last minute miraculous pass to some receiver that no one has ever heard of, leading to a field goal by fat-legged Janikowski.  Flowers should have intercepted - or at least KNOCKED THE BALL DOWN since he got to that pass first (still pissed about that game, can you tell?).  But alas, looking forward, the Chiefs MUST win today against the ever so poop-stained Denver Broncos, or I will revert to my cynical Chiefs game viewing style that has protected me from stress for so many years.

The Broncos are the equivalent of a mediocre high school team this year, and the Chiefs should tromp these guys by at least 20 points.  Flowers better catch every ball that touches his hands, and Jamaal Charles better run like it's his job, er....wait, it IS his job, yeah, yeah.  I don't like being teased, and with the Chiefs 4-0 start I actually started watching the Chiefs games without being jaded to protect myself from getting upset, which was easy to do for the last few seasons when they were playing for good draft picking order, basically. I would honestly rather have a terrible record and be able to relax and laugh at the Chiefs than to be teased into paying attention to the games, sitting on the edge of my seat on every 3rd down, and then ultimately giving myself yet another ulcer.  All that said, the Chiefs better fucking win today son, and win big, so that I may drinketh beer early and often and not have to look at the TV screen on every play.

At this time, the Chiefs are a mere 1 point favorite, which shows the stat masters in Vegas don't have much faith in us right now, especially on the road.  Denver has a mish-mash of running backs who pretty much don't do anything (believe me, I've had all of them on my fantasy team at one point or another this season and have subsequently dumped them all).  The Denver Broncos quarterbacks are suspect in that Kyle Orton has the same problem as our beloved Matt Cassel possesses in that he can only see about 20 yards downfield at the max.  If they sneak in Tim Tebow at any point, Tamba Hali needs to step on his head and say "welcome to the NFL cracker!".  The Chiefs secondary will have their hands full with Brandon Lloyd, and to combat this wily wide out, the Chiefs have to get some serious pressure on Kyle Orton or they will have some problems.  Lloyd has been on FIRE this season.

Well, off I go to a house party / tailgate full of SERIOUS Chiefs fans, so hopefully this one goes well and we will drink and be merry :)
