View Full Version : 50 things from Arrowhead today.

The following is a random list of things as a result of my trip to Arrowhead today. Full credit to stevieray for finding a ticket for me and damn near walking across fire to get it to me. You da man, my brother!

1. For those of you that have never met him, First Down Elvis is the nicest guy you'll ever meet. He's a, give you the shirt off of his back, (or the Chiefs ticket in his hand, as the case may be) kind of guy. I don't have the words to tell all of you what a great individual he is.
2. I forgot what a great experience Arrowhead was.
3. Hours after I've been home, I can still smell charcoal lighter fluid.
4. When making rounds through the parking lot with First Down Elvis, be prepared to stop every 15 to 20 feet for a fan wanting a photo op.
5. Funniest thing I heard in the parking lot today. "Everyone keeps staring at my new boobs." "Yeah. I know. I'm sorry I paid for the sonofabitches now."
6. When meeting someone in the parking lot to buy a ticket, it helps if the go between actually has the cell phone number of the person willing to sell the ticket.
7. I met a few Planeteers today. Seemed like genuinely nice folks. The pleasure was all mine.
8. I have a promising career as First Down Elvis's personal beer holder.
9. Sitting 4 rows back in the end zone was different. It was no better nor worse than anywhere else I've ever sat at a game.
10 I think my face is sun burned.
11. First Down Elvis went through great lengths to get me my ticket before the game, even at the cost of missing an appearance by Lamar and then having some chick go psycho on him about it.
12. I didn't eat anything all day and man, am I hungry now!
13. The two people to my immediate left were annoying as hell. The man had no idea how the game of football is played. The woman made the sign of the cross before every play. When they played the "Tomahawk Chop" song, instead of singing, "Ooooh! Ohwoooooohooohoooh ..." she sounded like a sick dog, "Arooooooo .... oooooooo ... ooooooo ...."
14. The two guys sitting to my right didn't have the decency to wear ANY Chiefs gear. None! Nada! Zip! Zilch! Speaking of which, is 1970 polyester plaid back in fashion now?
15. I was going to dress up for the game as "Planet Man" with a Chiefs Planet logo on my cape. I wanted to help pimp the site. Least I could do and all. I left the ball in Phil's court about the logo for the cape.. He apparently dropped it.
16. Speaking of dropping, Chrebet couldn't catch a cold today.
17. Moore absolutely PANCAKED Surtain on that interception return. It was brutal.
17 I am no longer worried about our run defense.
18. Cheese flavored Chex Mix makes a suitable snack while typing this.
19. Our pass defense leaves something to be desired IMO.
20. First Down Elvis might be buying a new cell phone today that he left behind were it not for me.
21. 3rd and goal for the Jets made me remember what 90+ decibels was.
22. Green should NOT have thrown that INT in the end zone. He should have just thrown it away and settled for a Tynes field goal attempt.
23. I managed to avoid having my picture taken today, thus remaining the anonymous Planeteer.
24. $4.75 for a freaking bottle of water!? $4.75!!!??? Are you kidding me!!!???
25. I bought the afore mentioned bottle of water anyway.
26. Pitching a shutout for 3+ quarters was sweeeeeeeet!!!
27. I don't remember the last time we blocked a filed goal but that was sweet too!!!
28. This running back by committee WORKS!
29. My keyboard now has orange keys. Damn you, cheese flavored Chex Mix!
30. It only took 3 plays to score in the first quarter.
31. Pennington hangs onto the ball much like Dave Kreig.
32. If I were the head coach for the Jets, I'd be looking for a new center.
33. The center I just fired would make a good long snapper.
34. Green spread the ball around nicely.
35. IMO, we used Dante way too much as a receiver today.
36. Lawrence Tynes field goal ... GOOD!
37. Lawrence Tynes filed goal ... GOOD!
38. Lawrence Tynes field goal ... MISSED! ... damnit.
39. We are already ahead of half the AFC West at the time of this writing.
40. Derrick Johnson was all over the filed today. This kid has the makings of a play maker.
41. Colquitt averaged damn near 50 yards per kick.
42. The Jets did not have a single 1st down rushing.
43. We were not penalized the length of the field today. How refreshing is that?
44. The give away/take away ratio sure looks good right now.
45. Let's face it, the Jets killed themselves today. An INT and 7 fumbles. Yeeesh. GO DEFENSE!
46. Johnson, Knight and Allen each had a sack.
47. Ty Law ... who?
48. Injuries suck. Hopefully none of them are serious.
49. Dropped pass after dropped pass ... the Jets receivers have a promising career with the Seahawks.
50 And finally ...

Was Trent not seeing some guys that were open?

I must have been just a few rows behind you, I was a few rows up on that side and saw First Down Elvis over there.

It was my first time sitting on the enzone side as well, it certainly is a different experience while watching the game. I thought it would bother me, but I got used to it after awhile.

Oh yeah, I am DEFINATELY sun burned. :)

Man, I'm serious. He's got to be one of the most down to Earth, easy to talk to, nicest guys I think I've ever met on a first time basis. You have no idea what he went through to hook me up with a ticket. I was more than a little impressed.

I think it was a combination of not being able to see the receiver because he really didn't have the time he normally does to step up in the pocket and locate the open man. It seemed to me he was flushed a lot more today than in years past. Just my opinion.

From what I saw, Parker had his man beat and was open.

Law was covering someone else and drifted back towards the back of the endzone and made the play.

I'm more pissed with the playcall, personally. If you're going to pass on the goalline out of that formation, use play action.

If not, spread them out and run a pick play or something.

I saw no one open deep all day. Looked to me like we played more of a short game, by design. There were open receiver a few times but it's hard to see them when your running away from the pressure and they are on the opposite side of the field. No concerns on my part as far as Green is concerned. The O line needed to step up a notch IMHO.

Just one. The goal post should be made of a transparent material so you can see through it, instead of having it obstruct your view during critical moments when your trying to ascertain if anyone is open. :)

My bad, I thought he was in the upper deck. I guess he probably couldn't see that kind of stuff then.

That's why I always like to sit higher up. Sometimes its fun to watch the play develop away from the ball.

Mostly because he didn't do much until the end of the game when it was out of reach.

First catch. first Quarter: 1-10-NYJ43 (7:03) T.Green pass to T.Gonzalez pushed ob at NYJ 37 for 6 yards (T.Law).

Second catch. Second Quarter: 1-10-KC21 (15:00) T.Green pass to T.Gonzalez to KC 36 for 15 yards (E.Coleman).

Second quatrer. Whoops: 2-5-NYJ5 (5:21) T.Green pass incomplete to T.Gonzalez.

Third quarter. Whoops: 3-7-KC16 (7:38) T.Green pass incomplete to T.Gonzalez.

Third quarter: Whoops: 1-10-KC34 (2:53) T.Green pass incomplete to T.Gonzalez.

Fourth quater: Third catch: 3-5-KC29 (7:57) T.Green pass to T.Gonzalez to KC 46 for 17 yards (K.Rhodes).

Fourth quarter: Fourth catch: 1-10-KC46 (7:14) T.Green pass to T.Gonzalez to NYJ 41 for 13 yards (K.Rhodes).

Well, he did have a nice pre-season, and it's carrying over into the first game.

In all, I'm very impressed with our Run D. Curtis Martin is a solid back, who always give us trouble, historically speaking. Martin didn't get anything going, except for some draws.

Speaking of draws, last year, they would had ripped off some 15 yards or so. This year, a marked improvement in that area, especially the LB'ing.

I am, somewhat concerned about the passing D, but if we're playing our 3rd and 4th CB's, that's to be expected.

Redzone D, however, was fantastic.
