Got some respect on the NFL Network earlier today. They were saying how they thought the Chiefs defense was going to be a tough first test for Leinart and that the Cards shouldn't expect too much.

Perhaps it's just me, but it's rather nice to see that '3' without a '0' right after it.

Playing the Chiefs used to signal a must start for my fantasy WR's. Now I'm thinking about benching Fitzgerald next week.

Yards allowed is a meaningless stat. A couple of years ago the Bus gained 5 yards on three carries................and scored three TD's. Where do we stand in points allowed?

We are 6th at 10.7 ppg.

There are three tiers among top teams in scoring defense:

#1 tier - Chicago (7.2 ppg), San Diego (7.7 ppg), and Baltimore (8.2 ppg)

#2 tier - Denver (10.3 ppg), Atlanta (10.5 ppg), and KC (10.7 ppg)

#3 tier - NE (16 ppg), Dallas (16 ppg), Buffalo (16.2 ppg), Minn (16.2 ppg), and New Orleans (16.2 ppg)

:eek: Da Bears are some bad mofos!

Until they met yesterday San Diego and Baltimore ran up their impressive stats against teams that were a combined 0-13. Maybe their stats need to be taken with a grain of salt.

Here's the updated defensive stats. A majority of our success seems to be coming from the early draft choices we've made over the last few years.

Me neither. I thought Chicago would win at home in a close one but...
IMHO it would not have mattered if they had a fully healthy S. Alexander last night, da' Bears were hitting on all cylinders.
That is the kind of D that wins SBs, especially with a halfway decent looking offense under Grossman.

Here's a new question:

How does our 'D' rank just counting yesterday?

No chit. I expected a decent game, but Da Bears left me flabbergasted. That is one scary bunch.

The Chiefs are ranked 20th in total offense and 29th in passing offense. That is troubling and startling

We are 17th in scoring. We will keep climbing now that our offense is getting back on track.

I don't find it that troubling or startling considering we're playing with our backup QB.

That's how the Bears D looked last year. I watched them several times last year when they were kind of under the radar... and I really thought they had the most "Super Bowl"-looking type defense. Then they got in the playoffs and Steve Smith torched them, so much for that.

As far as regular season play goes I think they've been the best D in football the last two years, and still probably the best D.

I find unchecked pessimism troubling & startling. There is sooooooo much season to be played and all signs say our General will return to the front lines for the majority of it. Yesterdays performance didnt make a nice lil' band-aid for those boo-boo numbers???

I'd much rather have it this way..... I get more of a thrill out of seeing the D shutdown teams than seeing the offense put up 40+ points. Although if we can have both like last weekend, I'll probably be happy with that too...

I would also rather have a team that improves throughout the season, rather then a team that starts out fine then trails off.

Is that what you're expecting? Cause I don't see the Chiefs having the production fall-off this year. The way we're looking so far, I see them as steadily improving through the season. Especially on defense...

My confidence in the offense isn't as strong yet, but I expect before the season is over the offense will win a game that the defense couldn't stop.

It's all because of Dick Vermeil. We'd have been just as good on defense if he'd stayed and Al Saunders would still have this offense clicking at 324 points per game. Dammit Carl.

Bastard, get the f*ck away from my keyboard.

I would also rather have a team that improves throughout the season, rather then a team that starts out fine then trails off.... or f's whole games off, like they are kings, and don't have to put out the effort to win, thinking those teams will just give it to us. See Buffalo, Giants, and a strong case could be made for Dallas last year as well.

That's the amazing thing, Mr. bunnytrdr. The contribution of our ex-tackles to this offense is just incredible by contrast. The dropoff in the effectivness of our oline is shockingly stark.

Even though I appreciate what they did for us in the past, I sort of hope that Roaf and Welbourne have lots of itchy pimples on their butts.

It's nothing new to see the word "rank" associated with the defense, it's the context that throws me.

Welbourne seems like he has gotten a lot of love on this board since his steroid-induced retirement. I'm not sure where it comes from. I don't think there is a talent dropoff at Right Tackle. Sampson seems like an upgrade so far to me.

Unless you're incredibly deep at WR I would never bench Fitzgerald. Even yesterday he had 65 and a TD.

Well, I have Reggie Wayne going against Tenn. and Keyshawn Johnson going against Cleveland. My option is to start Javon Walker against Baltimore or Fitzgerald against KC.

With the way the Chiefs D has been playing and the fact that this will be Lienert's first start I don't have a lot of confidence in Fitzgerland this week. It is a scoring only league and he didn't score this week. He only has 1 TD this season.

I know some may say bench Keyshawn but he has comperable stats to my other WR's and is playing Cleveland as opposed to KC or Balt.
