Did we see the “real” Chiefs in Week 4, and merely pod-people wearing R&G during the first three games? Or vice versa? We’ll find out on Sunday. The Chiefs, ecstatic after getting their first win against the high-powered Donkeys, hit the road for a non-conference matchup against the Carolina Panthers. Bear in mind the following stats reflect a very green Chiefs squad through four games with starter injuries, rotating QBs, and some very inept play-calling.

CAR (3-1) – W: Eggos, Cubs, Felons L: Viqueens
KC (1-3) – W: Donks L: Cheatriots, Raiturds, Felons

Adv: KC

Homefield Advantage: CAR

CAR Key Players (against SD, CHI, MINN, and ATL):
QB Delhomme – 860 yds, 60% comp., 3 TD, 1 INT
RB Williams – 201 yds, 3.7 ypc, 0 TD
RB Stewart – 197 yds, 4.4 ypc, 4 TD
WR Muhammad – 287 yds, 1 TD
WR Smith – 166 yds, 1 TD
MLB Beason – 27 tackles
LB Diggs – 11 tackles, 1 sack
DE Peppers – 7 tackles, 2 sacks
P Baker – 46 avg, 9 I20

Panthers’ last game: The Panthers beat the Felons 24-9 with mistake-free football and a strong defense. Delhomme threw for 294 yards and 2 TDs, and M. Muhammad had 147 receiving yards.

KC Key Players (against NE, OAK, ATL, and DEN):
QB Huard – 295 yds, 71% comp., 2 TD, 2 INT
RB Johnson – 415 yds, 4.8 ypc, 3 TD
TE Gonzales – 176 yds, 2 TD
WR Bowe – 267 yds, 2 TD
LB Johnson – 16 tackles, 1 sack, 1 INT, 1 FF
LB Thomas – 14 tackles
CB Flowers – 18 tackles
CB Carr – 15 tackles, 1 INT
S Pollard – 17 tackles, 1 FF, 1 blocked punt
S Page – 17 tackles, 1 FF
P Colquitt – 48 avg, 12 I20

Key KC injuries: OLT Albert (out-elbow)

Chiefs’ last game: fueled by the defense snagging four turnovers, the Chiefs shocked the Donkeys 33-19. The Chiefs played with a passion not seen thus far this season, and the youngsters played relatively mistake-free football. Brandon Albert was injured, but Herb Taylor filled in nicely at LT. The lack of a pass-rush on Jay Cutler allowed the Donks to rack up a lot of passing yards.

Carolina will dish out a mix of pass and run; the Chiefs’ run D and pass rush both stink. The Chiefs’ F4 must find a pass rush this week, or Delhomme will simply wait in the pocket for the inevitable open-receiver. Herm even stated that they’ll have to do something extra in order to get to Delhomme. The Chiefs’ D is tied for second in the NFL in takeaways, and leads the league in fumbles recovered (7); they will have to force TOs again to provide scoring opportunities for Huard and the O (who need as many opportunities as they can get). The Panther defense, unlike Denver, is very good. They will focus on stopping LJ, so expect 7 or 8 in the box on running downs. I don’t have much optimism for a Chief win, but if the team that beat Denver shows up in Carolina, the game is winnable.

I betting Steve Smith breaks about 8 Page tackles and Pollard whiffs running into a chasing LB a bunch.

The Carolina offensive line is hells of ****ed up.

Still hope DeAngelo runs for 200 yards, though.

Games two and three for the Chiefs were a joke and will mess up their stats. Coming off a win where the Chiefs put it together, we know that's what they'll be bringing this week. They may not win but they're coming in with confidence and an identity that they can trust in. That's a huge difference than the Oakland and Atlanta game where the staff was experimenting with different QBs.

Carolina has some scary good backs. It's about time for Stewart's annual injury, though. ;)

Forget about returning kickoffs against this team. If we're lucky we'll start every possession at the 20. Their kickoff specialist destroys the ball 5 yards deep in the end zone almost every time.

I hope they are punting more than kicking off. If they kick off more than 4 times we are f***ed anyway.

I'm sitting here watching the Panthers, BTW. They are a lot better than some are giving them credit for. I can see everyone on here bitching about how conservative we're going to be during the game, but that's the only way we're winning it. We have to ugly this one up or we don't have a prayer.

One thing that may help us - the Panthers are HEAVILY penalized. We've kept penalties low this year.
