View Full Version : Chiefs Why you can't judge a schedule before the season starts...

back when the board had a glimmer of optimism, everyone pointed at the schedule and said, "it's too tough, we can go 8-8 this year with a better team than we had last year!!!"

well funny how that works out...

Colts don't have Manning, so nix that as a tough game...

Then we have...

@OAK, SD, MIA, DEN, @NE, PITT, @CHI, @NYJ, GB, OAK, @DEN

Now, I don't think we're going to win a lot of those games...and I could careless either way (fuck this team and this roster!)...

but the only absolute unwinnable games even with our shit, shit, shit roster are @NE and GB...

Oakland is improving but if they don't run the ball they don't do shit...and we held AP in check so I don't see why our DEF couldn't keep McFadden in check (just saying)...Chicago is overrated and terrible offensively (minus Forte, but again...I'd rather face an amazing RB than say, Aaron Rodgers)...the Jets are dogshit...and San Diego is overrated as usual (our division isn't as bad as the NFC West but we're definitely the big brother)...

and Pittsburgh is a god damn mess...that offensive line makes our offensive line look twice as good as the Vermeil lines...

Anyways...once again it proves, don't judge a schedule by the way it looks before preseason.

remaining QB's who scare me:

Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady...Rivers is a homo who I guarantee has had a dick in his mouth within the last 6 weeks.

and I've come to the conclusion that even our shit roster has a chance every god damn Sunday as long as we're not facing an elite QB...and as long as Norv is running the Chargers into the ground and having them play up and down to their competition no matter the competition, Crybaby Rivers doesn't scare me.

I don't see us winning 5 games but that doesn't mean our schedule turned out to be as tough as everyone was worried about...in fact, it turned out to be significantly easier...

we play the Jets, not the Giants

and who would have thought the Lions would end up being the 3rd or 4th best team we played?

(I know, I was right there with the fantasy hype like everyone else but I didn't know it was going to transition into 11 real life wins)

Rex Ryan will dial up a defensive scheme that will have Matt Cassel dazed and confused.

The Bears, while not a great team, and one that I didn't think much of (I predicted them to finsih third in their division behind the Pack and Lions at the site that AustinChief has stickied in the thread at the top of the page), they are still a damn good defense, which Cassel can not perform against.

this has nothing to do with the Chiefs or Matt Cassel winning games...

it has everything to do with the fact that the Chiefs schedule is no longer "tough"...like everyone thought it would be...

and that dreaded stretch...is no longer dreaded...just a bunch of average teams with major flaws that are a little less flawed than our shit team

This happens almost every year though. With few exceptions you never know which teams will be good year to year... half the playoff teams from the year before usually drop out while a few slide in, and you usually have a couple teams who were terrible the year before make playoff runs.

Okay.

But I was on record that this team had the talent to win 10-11 games, but that all rode on Cassel.

But you also have to recognize that the teams that seem to be less than expected could well right the ship, and this schedule could wind up still being as difficult as predicted.

5 teams per season over the last 3 or 4 years.

Every game is going to be tough for this team because we have two playmakers...two.

You are right.
This schedule doesn't look as tough right now as most thought.

But don't make the same mistake at this point, because, as pointed out already, those teams still have the chance to right the ship.

Buffalo is a pretender, Detroit is a borderline contender.

My thoughts:

Buffalo wins 7 or 8 games
Detroit wins 10-12 games

Buffalo and Detroit have both taken advantage of teams being dumb with big leads...it'll catch up.

Buffalo is a total pretender. I guarantee that.

Detroit is...well they can't run the ball, Suh has been an overrated mess, and the defense is so/so (remember, Gunther is the coordinator...and it shows)

I think Detroit is one of those teams that will keep getting better as the season progresses, but they are a lucky 4-0 right now...

They either need to scrap Best and make him a 3rd down back...or they need to scrap their running game and operate a college style, hurry up spread offense (and don't laugh, that's what has won them the last two games facing 20+ point deficits in the 2nd half)...

that hurry up they run is POTENT...that's why Stafford threw for 290 yards in the 1st half of week 1...

RUN THAT SHIT, AND RUN IT EARLY DETROIT

I'm saying that this schedule will end up proving out as tough as I expected, because the teams that are playing poorly now that I expected to be SB contenders will be in the thick of the hunt for the SB by season's end.

OK, back to Hootie's original point.

OAK looks better than I thought they'd be, actually, so the one exception on the list is PITT. That team has looked like total shit. Better than us, of course, but total shit nonetheless. IND and the Manning injury should be a separate category, since he's always been their team.

McCluster isn't an NFL every down back like Detroit is trying to get out of Best, but again...you're and idiot

I honestly think you're one of the dumbest football posters on this board...everything is a vendetta with you...you refuse to watch anything objectively and everything boils down to a "I need to get attention so this is my stance" kind of thing.

Gif'd up and videos are the only things that make you a good poster on this board.
