At this point, one game down, it's difficult to say. Overall, I was impressed tonight. The line pretty much held its own against one of the better front sevens in the league. Vanilla defense or not, it's something to take note of.

10 wins this season? Perhaps next year, but there are still to many question marks right now. It's great the Chiefs got out of their funk by winning a pre-season game, but that doesn't equate to a winning regular season, much less 10 wins. Another good draft to plug some a few more holes and we will be well on our way. There in no doubt, this IS a rebuilding year. I'm looking into the crystal ball and it's saying 4-11.

I have a feeling by the time they hit that 16th game this year, we will wish it was only a 15 game season. :doh!:

But at the same time, a 4-12 season wouldn't be heading in the right direction. A lot of people on this board say they are going to accept a horrendous record because we're "heading in the right direction," or rebuilding with youth. A 4-12 record means: 1) no improvement 2) another cleaning house (players and front office) Thus, putting us even farther behind that we are now.

I'm amazed at how quickly go from 0-16 to 16-0 predictions.

I find it amusing also, all from a preseason game win. I have been saying all summer that I think it is possible for the Chiefs to win 6-8 games, and I still stand by that, but I don't see us making the playoffs.

Gravedigger
08-08-2008, 08:00 AM
Don't we have a rule that you can't post an inevitably disspointing statement until your sixth month as a member on the forums?

I understand the excitement, we don't have Solari holding us back anymore and the first drive of the game was quite impressive.... but, theres always a but:

1. It's only the first game of the season, in fact its the first preseason game of the season.
2. It's Chicago! There's a reason that theres a QB controversy with two of the worst QB's in the league.
3. It's like a playground fight, my third string can beat up your third string! Kudos on the comeback win!

Things to be happy about:
1. Each QB of ours put together touchdown drives, impressive for Huard and Croyle cause they faced Chicago's first team defense.
2. Croyle's first drive was pretty impressive and definetly will be great to see.
3. The offensive line seemed more cohesive than anything from last year, yeah they let some through, but there's always room for improvement!

I will say with utter confidence, drinking the same kool-aid, that the Chiefs will be 8-8 this season IF the team can stay healthy.

08-08-2008, 08:06 AM
Making predictions right now after one preseason game is not something I will do. Added to the complexity is the fact that our 2 1st round picks were out and IMHO those two 1st rounders play positions that the Chiefs need to the most help, the lines. I actually was not very impressed with the line play on both the offense and defense. The O-line might have improved a wee bit but the D-line looked like last year. To me the line play is the heart of a football team. Its the no glory job and is overlooked. How much will the additions of Dorsey and Albert improve the play? We don't know yet but it is key. As for the skill position play. The receiving corps look way better than last year and may actually be one of our strengths. QB is still a question. RB should be solid barring injury (LJ). Linebackers are average except DJ looks like he is getting it now and could have his break out year. DB's and Safeties also look average. Special teams still suck with the exception of Colquitt. If I remember correctly the same special teams coach from last year is still on board and if that is true I must ask "Why?". All in all the team showed some improvement. Chan will make a big difference as we witnessed last night. Playoffs to bottom feeder - too early to tell.

That's not true at all. We can have a 3-13 record and still have considerable areas of improvement on this team. Quit looking at it strictly in terms of wins and losses. We're rebuilding. That doesn't mean we're accepting a horrendous record. That means our focus has shifted from overall record to development of the young team.

And if.... if... we happen to have another 4-12 season, we're not going to have another cleaning house. You don't scrap the team and start over in the middle of a rebuild. That doesn't make sense and wouldn't help anything. Ownership is going to be more lenient during rebuilding.

3-13 and improvement of what? There's absolutely nothing positive about it. You can't use youth as an excuse for horrendous play. That's not how you rebuild. There will be an even bigger "cleaning of house" than last year. Coaches, mainly. Thus, starting over again.

Same here, I really like the new offense, much of the young talent, but McIntosh and Jones are not answers only stop gap. After watching closely the right side of the OLine last night I think Travis Leffew should jump the depth chart to starting right guard. Leffew did a decent job against the bears second team while Jones was horrendous against first string.

Jones was not strong at the point of attach. He did not pass block well, did not get to the second level in the run game, and was made to look silly on trap and pull blocks. The guy is a waste and should be cut.

I still have hope for McIntosh and I was pleased with Niswanger, Waters and Taylor. Even with that waste of a player Jones the OLine looks to be an improvement over last year. Plus, with the new offensive scheme the defense will not be able to expose the OLine weaknesses like last year.

As a whole I was very pleased with what I saw last night. If they can get that OLine solidified the Chiefs are going to have an explosive offense this year. I really liked what I saw from offensive rookies Cottam, Franklin and Charles.

Herb Taylor showed fairly well and Richardson looks like he'll be starting in front of McIntosh before the bye week. The rookie skill players were very good. The defensive front 7 stunk as a whole (I guess that means they are working together at least).

While I certainly don't think we'll win 10 games, I'm optimistic that we can win 7 or 8. Really all I'd like to see this season is some development in our young corners (Flowers & Carr, Morgan at safety), Dorsey and Tyler improving, and Albert getting some good experience. I'd also like to see a second receiver emerge (hopefully Franklin because of his size) and see Brodie get some confidence.

I wouldn't be mad if they shocked us though :)

I did like Pat Williams at MLB and Boone looks like he can do the job at DE. I hope Richardson's game can be ready by the buy week, but the long term outlook on both Taylor and Richardson looks bright.

My biggested concern is RG.

Mine too, I heard Pearson say last night that Herb had been working there during camp, I don't know how much stock to put in that.

I worry about Boone, I don't think he's athletic enough to be an end. We might do just as well making Turk the starter because a Dorsey/Tank/Boone rotation at DT might be nice.

Top five reasons the Chiefs will not make the playoffs this year:

1. Dline- cover two w/out a pass rush is UGLY
2. Oline- motion will help but no offense functions w/out protecting the QB
3. Herm- 52-60, career loser with bad game-day decision-making ability
4. Linebackers- Johnson still hasn't gotten it, Edwards is 192 years old and everyone else is forgettable
5. Youth/ inexperience- won't matter so much for the offensive skill guys but our secondary is going to make a lot of 6 point mistakes (especially w/out a decent Dline)

5. Youth/ inexperience- won't matter so much for the offensive skill guys but our secondary is going to make a lot of 6 point mistakes (especially w/out a decent Dline)
Big Glenn Dorsement. Problem solved.

Yeah, this is my prediction as well.

I do think that being 5-11 is realistic and it is an improvement even if all the games won't be pretty to watch. My feeling last night was that this whole season could be a "preseason." There are just so many "ifs" and so many young players developing right now, I don't think we'll really know what we've got until the end of the season. For this reason, I think that yesterday's game was probably one of the more enjoyable preseason games I've seen in awhile. I actually cared while watching our scrubs, 'cause who knows? Some of them actually have a chance to see significant playing time this year.

Oh, and- is Chan Gailey a breath of fresh air or what? Hari H. Krishna! This was so much better than Solari! Brodie looked solid. I think he'll be okay. Huard was an absolute statue on that sack play, but looked better than Thigpin, IMO. I'm sorry, but Thigpin didn't look like an NFL QB last night.

I thought Jones just plain sucked. For some reason, I'm not convinced with Herb. That early play where the end just blew right by him on his right side really bugged me. Mac was meh... I can't wait to get big Alberts back in the line up. Franklin, Cox and Bowe were all impressive. We've got a nice little offense developing. If we had a better line, I'm thinking we could be deadly. If we win any 'surprise' games this year, I think it'll be because of the offense.

I don't think I liked anything that I saw from the D. The Bears offense was just atrocious, and we still looked bad. Hali is already saying he was slow, and didn't know if it was him or the grass, but yeah...it was ugly. I don't think Glen will solve all our problems, but I can't wait to see him play.

Exactly, and that's more likely to come sooner than later! But if we beat the Patriots, then I don't know... that's a long shot, but if we do that we've got a good chance of making this season a non-losing season. Not likely, but I think that first game will be pretty telling of how we stack up next to play off ready team.

We won't, but we'll provide a much tougher challenge than people think.

I expect a 7-10 pt game the Pats finish at the end.

That game is our berometer.

I like your optimism dorseybowe. I have no idea what our record will be, but I feel good about where we're going. I'm thrilled we won last night, preseason or not. That 1st drive was very encouraging for me. There's a possibility we could make the playoffs, there's also a possibility we only win 4 or 5 games. I'm hoping for the best.

Based upon the improvement I saw in the Chicago game.

Ok well at least you gave your reason, a weak one though. I know I just made a thread about preseason, but that's for people who like to act like kids and say its "just preseason."

Yes, the Chiefs offense was great (I'm talking about the 1st unit.) But I don't think we can determine anything until the preseason is over. I might as well predict a SB year for the Ravens for beating the Patriots. :rolleyes:

I can agree with that. :thumb:

But at the same time, a 4-12 season wouldn't be heading in the right direction. A lot of people on this board say they are going to accept a horrendous record because we're "heading in the right direction," or rebuilding with youth. A 4-12 record means: 1) no improvement 2) another cleaning house (players and front office) Thus, putting us even farther behind that we are now.

I agree with that 100% I honestly think we are moving in the right direction. I think we could be a 8-8 team this year. as long as we show some improvement we are headed in the right direction. But yes, going 3-13 or 4-12 would be either a step back, or no improvement at all...lets atleast try to give ourselves something to rub in the Broncos face.

I like your hope but I think 7-8 wins is closer. The Chiefs scored 24 points on a fairly strong defense. And what I've being saying about CG being our best pick-up this off season looked like it might not be as crazy as most thought. The Chiefs were still in alot of the games in the 2nd half last year and a competent OC would of won a couple instead losing all of them. That was shown thurs. night as well. No way there would of been any hope here after thurs. with an OC like we had last year.

We may lose to the Jets, but that has more to do with the Jets being at home than Favre playing for them. The arrival of Favre and a bunch of overpriced free agents isn't going to transform the Jets from bottom dwellers to contenders. Even with an aging, interception-prone quarterback well past his prime, the Jets are still a bad team.
