NOTE: This analysis excludes the garbage 77yd TD with 2min and change left in the 4th.


Best, most complete game of the year for our Chiefs. Great execution. We completely dominated TOP having the ball for more than 40 mins. It was also a game that we truly WON, not only benefiting off of the other team's mistakes and turnovers, a la NYJ and WAS games.

- Pass D: MUCH improved!! Only gave up 202 pass yards including the garbage time 77yd TD. Surtain blanketed Chambers all night long and none of the WRs or their stellar TE McMichael did any real damage.

- Run D: Gave up the one big play, but still kept them under 100 yards rushing.

- Offense: scored 6 or more points in every quarter. Most consistent performance of the year.

- Run game: great job! Both Priest and LJ got around the same number of touches, about the same yards, both scored. Both ran well. Line looked good, especially the left side with big Willie. Priest finished 18carries for 90yds and LJ had 23car for 93yds

- Pass game: Best it's looked all year. Got everyone involved. Dante, Eddie, Chris Horn, and Bo all had receptions. Tony G had his breakout game thusfar this season, leading all receivers with 7 catches for 67 yards.

- Special teams: Tynes kicked the hell out of the ball and was accurate. Excellent job!! Dustin boomed the ball when he needed to and kept it out of the end zone as well. Can still improve on his kicks, but not bad. Also kick return coverage still needs to improve.

We get the win, we look good, and now we get 2 extra days of rest and preparation before we travel to San Diego.

Its a huge win, we now can take a few days off to rest then head to the other coast to play the chargers.

Dunn had some huge catches, too. :clap:

Getting this win showed alot of character, IMO. To go down there on short notice and play like that is... impressive. (to say the least)

I was really impressed with the D. They were just crushing people. Yes, they gave up some big plays... but I think you'd have to be blind to not see improvement.



Gotta be excited about Tynes too.... I feel alot better about him.

Considering the circumstances and the fact that we never win in that place, I'm extremely pleased. Far from perfect and still plenty of work to do, but at this point I'll take the W and run... this whole thing was a quagmire.

Very Impressive win IMO. Whats encouraging is the defense continues to grow each week. If they could just stop giving up the big plays, we could really be top notch.

Trent Green just played a phenomenal game tonight. He was under pressure quite a bit.

Really impressed with our run D and running game.

Offense, especially the passing offense had it's breakout game.

A total of 296 yards on O for the Phins, take away the two big plays, 142 yards, and the CHIEFS held the Phins to 154 Yards. I didn't get tos ee the game, didn't check the planet until after the game was done :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: so got to listen to the off again on again broadcast from KCFX and watch the incredible boring lines back and forth on CBS Sportsline. Wish I could have seen the game but I will miss everyone if it results in a win every week, :p GO CHIEFS

Still a nice job by the D, over all.

I didnt get to see the game, like many people, but from the way that Len Dawson and Mitch Holthus called the game, I like the way that the defense is improving in terms of its physicality on the field.

After being pushed around for the past several seasons, its good to see them finally being the ones doing the pushing.


Main thing I can see right now is the special teams play, and getting the penalties under control. Who knows how many points this team would have racked up had they not been stopping themselves with penalties.

289

I kept hoping he would top 300 as the announcers mentioned that teh 'Phins have not given up 300 yards passing in 35 games. Would have been a sweet topper to the game.

I hope we can finally end the debate of Johnson or Priest as the starter. LJ is a great back, who does needs some more experience, but Priest is the vet, and the guy who made our O since he came here, and he is still capable of doing the great things we came to know and love him for.

LJ can start becoming the number one back next year, but for now we should dance with the person who brung us.

Well deserved 2 days rest! They can really use this victory to bolster them for the rest of the season. If they can follow this win with a win in SD, then this will give the Chiefs huge confidence and momentum for the rest of the season! These bad circumstances can now be used to our advantage. Thanks Tags! :)

You mention a garbage time passing play and big run play.

Can you give a little more detail on those?

Did Warfield play?

Any players on D stand out tonight?

And this will game will be shown on NFL Sunday Ticket on Sunday?

I just got in from work, and all I know is what I've read here so far, and the final score.

Last I saw was 289. The Fins hadn't given up 300 passing yds in 35 games. NFL's longest streak. We could have done it easily as we had the ball with 8 min. left but didn't throw again.

Dolphins hit a 1 play 77 yard TD from Sage Rosenfels(sic) his ONLY throw, double covered by Knight and Warfield. (Knight went for the pic, Warfield looked like he thought Knight was going to make the play) Although the play never would have happened if Vermiel would have kicked the damn field goal from the 23 instead of trying to get a first down. The long run was the Dolphins first play of the 3rd qtr. Ronnie Brown broke a "tackle" by Wesley and raced down the field as the rest of defense watched, they thought he stepped out of bounds. As far as defensive players standing out......... ehh Surtain looked good, but he actually saw a little action tonite since McCleon was not playing. No real standouts, pretty solid performance all the way around with the exception of the 2 big plays.

Offensive line looked awesome with Welbourn in the game.... Trent had all day to pass.

Miami's big run happened on the first play from scrimmage at the second half. Ronnie Brown ran to the outside, narrowly running past Jared Allen and DJ(?) when Greg Wesely put a big hit on him. Not a textbook tackle, however. Brown, in an amazing show of balance, stayed in bounds on one foot, and took it down the sideline 65 yards to the endzone. Apparantly, the other defenders thought he went out on Wesley's hit.

The garbage time TD pass happened with about 2 and ahalf minutes left in the 4th. We had gone for it on 4th down, not wanting to run up the score, and didnt convert. Miami ball, and the bring in Sage Rosenfels to signal call the clean up minutes. Rosenfels' first play finds Chambers deep, in this odd spot in between Warfield and Knight, and Chambers took it to the house. Without those two plays, they might not have gotten a TD the entire game. Our D outphysical'd the Miami offense overall.

Just watched the highlights on NFL Network.

Wesley needs to wrap up.

Surtain was a beast. He had 2 nearly 100% INT's, both got stripped by the Phins receivers. Finally Surtain looked like the all-Pro DB he's supposed to be.

Also, not to burst anyone's bubble or anything, but we did so well on pass D in part due to Gus not being able to throw the ball anywhere within 5 yards of the intended receiver. We dominated the run, though (with the exception of that one play), it was nice to see the table of the Phins first 5 (or so) posessions:
PUNT
PUNT
PUNT
PUNT

We played awesome overall, IMO, and if those penalties didn't kick our ass and the garbage time TD never happened, it would be a freaking blow out (I know, I know... there are no if's in this game, but still). I was extremely happy with the D-Line too, Allen didn't do nearly as much (obviously), but hey Hicks got a sack. Browning was in their faces all night as well.

EDIT: Also, for those of you who didn't see the game, the place was pretty f*cking empty, lol.

He did alright. 10 tackles. Nothing spectacular, but did his job. I think he'll be a solid pro, remember he only played 2 years at Florida before jumping to the NFL. He has great raw talent, but there's still skill to be learned. Starting alongside Zach Thomas and (normally) Junior Seau should help.

Of course I agree with this, but having Tynes kick FGs of 51 and 52 yards was a confidence booster for him and for us that was needed.

Now let's hope Tynes didn't blow his whole wad tonight. We might need him to do that again late in the season.

All in all, I was very glad to see him show some real power and accuracy tonight. :clap:
