  • QUESTIONS FIRST

    First question: Is this 13th NFL Ranking enough to be a contender in the NFL?

    Second question: Will Alex Smith's rankings move up into the top 10 with improved offensive line play and a #1 WR(meaning, I just Bowe, Avant and Wilson to be the 2/3/4 guys in the WR corp as my example)? 

    Does Alex Smith have to reach the top 5 to have a shot at winning the Super Bowl?

    QUARTERBACK METRICS

    Alex Smith -- Measuring up? kcchiefs.com photo

    What do great quarterbacks have in common? They fit the team's offensive scheme. They build up others while remaining aloof to the baloney in the press. They play in with discipline, error as much free ball as possible, doesn't throw INTs and…

    CHIEFS WIN!!! Well that was fun to say the least. So this morning I had minutes to get my blog out before my phone died at the Wal-Mart tire shop. I tried to see if they'd let me sit in my Jeep and charge up while they worked on it but to no avail. I proceded to adjust my fantasy roster and then walk to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the game. Yes I had a Bloody Mary and boneless wings (hot bbq and asian zing) which the latter happens to be one of my many "working titles" Others were Sailor Jerry, All I Want For Christmas Is A Dee Ford Jersey and Sorry Not Sorry. Shout outs to Alex and Enrique who are Chiefs fans (circa Priest Holmes). I was sitting solo behind a table filled with Raiders fans until they strolled in. It's always a good time meeting other "warriors" After our beloved team is up 31-6 I feel it's safe to go back and pay the mechanic. As I'm walking thru the mall there's an ex Raider player signing autographs on random crap to make a buck. He and his assistant tried to…

  • AS11

    I don't know if Alex Smith Exceeded 300 yards. It was always possible whether he completed another pass in the game or not. Chase Daniels closed out the game for him. Smith actually had 297 yards passing and a QB rating of 100.0. His 64%+ completion percentage is one of the tops in the NFL. In this game, he did go deep as well. Having time to throw the ball makes a big difference and this has been my point all season about the vertical game. See Left Guard topic below.

    I do know that Smith used 3, 5 and 7 step drops and this meant he had time to find a receiver and complete passes. He also used his feet to gain yards so as not take losses when pressured and completed passes on some of those avoidance scrambles. He is capable, accurate and when he has…

    Well this will be quick. The Raiders will forever be hated and anyone who uses the term Chiefs Nation rather than Chiefs Kingdom needs their head examined. Now go get your tires fixed, set your fantasy line-up and yell at a Raider fan. Catch up with you after the game. GO CHIEFS!!!

  • NSLU MIDWEEK: Chiefs Supplicate Football Deities

    First things First: The remainder of this season is dedicated to Eric Berry.

    (kcchiefs.com photo)

    Saying to the heavens "what more can go wrong in one season?"

    Or is that just me?

    If losing 6 games is bad, losing to the Raiders and losing games that should have been won is even worse.

    Three games remain and all three contests are winnable. To get into the playoffs, they must win out I am pretty sure. Unless some of the bad luck the Chiefs have experienced in 2014 rubs off on the other contenders to allow the Chiefs to squeak in.

    Bottom line? Even if the Chiefs get to the playoffs, they don't have the offensive line necessary to be competitive. Yes, they are capable…

  • Throughout this game, the Chiefs had moments where they verged on a dynamic team. The Defense held. Arizona could not get into the end zone.

    Then Andy Reid got in the way and down the final 1:14, when they needed to move the ball into field goal position, they toyed with the flats and did not go down the field as they had in the first half.

    Turnovers were huge in this game. Jamaal Charles fumbled the ball and injured his ankle. He was able to return. Alex Smith made a rare mistake when he tried to finesse a pass to Anthony Fasano and it was intercepted by a Cardinal Defensive lineman. The Cardinals turned that into a TD as the Chiefs gave them the ball in the Cardinal Red zone.

    And so it went.

    The Kansas City Chiefs defense did indeed hold the Cardinals to 17 points. The Chiefs lost by three. Cardinal Kicker Catanzaro was 3-5 and twice hit the goal post uprights which turned away a score and still the Chiefs figured a way to lose. Still, the…

  • NSLU: Today v Cardinals

    Date line note: The Chiefs should come away from today's matchup with a win.

    Today's Match Up

    Even with the mediocre performance of the offensive line, the Chiefs should be able to score 17 or more points.

    Without Carson Palmer, it is doubtful that the Cardinals can do so. What are the important factors?

    1. The Chiefs have to use Jamaal Charles to take it to a good Cardinal Defense.

    2. The Defensive front 5 must stop the run and force the Cardinals to throw the ball, and if they do this, they must have enough offense to score 17.

    3. Reid's game plan must include getting the ball to the offensive players who are the key to gaining yards, moving the ball and scoring. Here I especially mean Travis Kelce! GET HIM THE BALL! KNILE DAVIS, GET HIM…

  • NSLU: Another Injury that Affects the Chiefs!

    The Kansas City Chiefs won't have the services of Allen Bailey for the game against the Cardinals. The Injury Bug has struck again. This time it is probably only one missed game. Bailey suffered a concussion in the game against the Broncos and was taken out. This is the reason that you saw Jaye Howard for example, who gave it his all in the Chiefs loss at home. Also subbing would be Kevin Vickerson and Vance Walker.

    After two mediocre performances by the defensive line, this could not have come at a worse time for the Chiefs who must get to at least a 10-6 record to even have a shot at the Wild Card Round. This is still possible and might very well come down to a tie breaker with the Miami Dolphins for example. Anyway you look at it though,…

  • NSLU: I want to look at, well, back to the future!

    Today, I wish to show just to show how close the Chiefs really are to a true contender. This is a good football team. It has some crucial Needs. I am trying to illuminate them and the possibilities of internally resolving them before considering free agency or draft signings.

    OFFENSE

    QUARTERBACKS

    Alex Smith QB. I think AS11 is a fine QB. He hasn't had the personnel to aid him in doing what I know he can do. We witnessed it when he was the SF QB in 2011. His 2012 was good to the injury. Then he never took the field as Starting QB again. But now we know Harbaugh is gone after this year and maybe that says somthing too. I would…
