View Full Version : SEA @ KC Primer

10-23-2006, 09:56 AM
What a difference a week makes…after predicting a sure loss against SD last week, I humbly (but gladly) ate crow, saw that stats “ain’t all that”, and realized once again that there’s a reason they play the games. It seems our beloved Red & Gold spit out the bile remaining from the Pittsburgh game to beat the high-powered Bolts. The upcoming Seahawks @ Chiefs game, penciled in on my schedule sheet as “another loss”, is now VERY winnable. Some stats (which “ain’t all that”) for your perusal:

KC Score O – 19 ppg (20) vs SEA Score D – 24 ppg (25)…wash
KC Rush O – 99 ypg (21) vs SEA Rush D – 92 ypg (8)...adv SEA
KC Pass O – 195 ypg (21) vs SEA Pass D – 225 ypg (25)...adv KC

SEA Score O – 20 ppg (16) vs KC Score D – 21 ppg (15)...adv KC
SEA Rush O – 100 ypg (20) vs KC Rush D – 124 ypg (24)...wash
SEA Pass O – 204 ypg (16) vs KC Pass D – 180 ypg (6)…adv KC

SEA – 9 INTs & 3 fumbles in 6 games (-3 differential)
KC – 4 INT & 7 fumbles in 6 games (0 differential)
Advantage KC

Homefield Advantage: Chiefs

SEA Key Players (against Lions, Cards, Giants, Bears, Rams & Vikes), and assuming Hasselback & Alexander are out:
QB Wallace – 134 yds, 56% comp., 0 TDs, 2 INTs
RB Morris – 224 yds, 3.1 ypc, 0 TDs
WR Jackson – 523 yds, 5 TDs
WR Branch – 216 yds, 2 TDs
LB Tatupu – 45 tackles, 1 INT
LB Peterson – 40 tackles, 6 sacks
DE Fisher – 14 tackles, 3 sacks
Key SEA injuries: QB Hasselback (knee) – D, RB Alexander (foot) – D, WR Engram (ill) – Q

Seahawks’ last game: dominated in the second half at home by the Vikes. QB Hasselback injured.

KC Key Players (against Bengals, Donks, 49ers, Cards, Steelers & Chargers):
QB Huard – 1163 yds, 64% comp., 7 TDs, 1 INT
RB Johnson – 489 yds, 3.7 ypc, 5 TDs
DEs Allen & Hali
P Colquitt
K Tynes
Key KC injuries (besides Green): FB Cruz (knee) – O, RB Bennett (hammy) – Q, CB Sapp (knee) – O, OT Svitek (knee) - O.

Chiefs’ last game: Hung tough, played aggressive, finally got the ball to Gonzales, and the O-line redeemed itself by facilitating 132 rushing yards for LJ. The Chiefs FINALLY used short draw plays and play action to great effect. Solari’s play calling kept Chiefs from becoming predictable, and the O capitalized on TOs from the D to beat a top 3 Charger team.

With the O-line playing better and Huard proving he can throw, teams can no longer afford to stack the box to stop LJ. We’ll definitely see an interesting matchup between Gonzales and Peterson…if Peterson stays home, gonzo gets lots of yards, and if he blankets Gonzales, LJ gets lots of yards. The Chiefs should win this game, especially if Hasselback and Alexander are out. Seattle is chewed up with key injuries, while the Chiefs are finally emerging from ICU.

I give us the tilt as well. w/o Alexander/Hasselback

Homefield and coming off impressive win Vs. Sandyeggo.

We win this one too.

The last time Tony G. faced Peterson, when he played for San Fran, Peterson got ESPN’s player of the week for get’n free piggyback rides from Tony all day long. :shake:
Think this’ll draw a flag in KC?
