Ten things Packers have to do to beat Chiefs
By Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor

This one might have a little more bite to it than otherwise would’ve been expected.

When Todd Haley was fired as Chiefs coach on Monday, I figured that would make this Sunday’s game a breeze for the Packers. I figured the Chiefs would name a three-game interim head coach who, in effect, would be a lame-duck coach expected to do little more than guide the Chiefs to a merciful conclusion to their season.

All of that thinking was dashed when it was announced that Romeo Crennel would be the Chiefs’ interim coach. That’s when the wheels in my head started to turn.

Let’s see, Crennel was with Chiefs GM Scott Pioli in New England. Hmmm. They like each other. They work well together. They’re a comfortable fit. Hey, I get it. Crennel is the next coach. This is just an audition.

What the Packers are going to get in the way of an opponent this Sunday is a team bent on impressing their new coach. They know that with a strong finishing kick to their season, the Chiefs will probably land the full-time head coach’s job for Crennel, and Crennel is a player-friendly coach. In other words, players could do a whole lot worse than Crennel.

“They made a change and there’ll be a new energy source that’ll come out of them. That’s been my experience,” Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy said on Wednesday.

McCarthy knows how this stuff works. He knows players won’t play for a lame-duck coach, but they’ll play with fury for the guy they want and Crennel is the kind of coach players want.

“I do believe that how we play in these next three games will impact what they decide,” Crennel said on Wednesday of the decision-makers that will pick the Chiefs’ next coach.

Next three games? How about the next game? Should the Chiefs upset the undefeated Packers, Crennel would be a shoo-in to become the Chiefs’ next head coach. How could they not hire him?

So that’s what the Packers will be facing this Sunday in Kansas City, a Chiefs team motivated to win a game that would land their coach the full-time job and eliminate the prospect for radical change in the offseason. Nobody likes change, huh?

Here are 10 things the Packers have to do to beat the Chiefs:

1. Stay focused—The only way the Packers lose this game is if they get sloppy.

2. Run the ball—The Chiefs are 26th against the run and I loved the way the Packers ran the ball against the Raiders. With Greg Jennings out, what’s wrong with a little run-the-ball time?

3. Block Hali—Tamba Hali can really rush the passer. He’s the AFC version of Jason Pierre-Paul.

4. Expect Orton—Kyle Orton gives the Chiefs their best chance of winning.

5. Find McCluster—Dexter McCluster has big-play potential. He can stretch a team sideways.

6. Be ready—The Chiefs will be fired up from the start. Don’t let them get a foothold on their own turf.

7. Get a body on Baldwin—First-round pick Jonathan Baldwin is a big receiver who’s at his best catching the high ball.

8. Up the tempo—More plays would favor the Packers; fewer plays would favor the Chiefs.

9. Turn Cobb loose—With Jennings out, this game could become Randall Cobb’s breakout game.

10. Think clinch—That’s what a win would do. It would clinch home-field advantage for the playoffs and put the focus squarely on the pursuit of immortality.

I'm not going to say the Chiefs will win, that would be silly, but I've seen stranger things.

2004 New England Patriots, en route to the Super Bowl, were 12-1 when they went into Dolphins Stadium to face the lowly 2-11 Dolphins, who had fired their coach and had interim coach Jim (Master) Bates. Pats were winning by 11 with three minutes left when the wheels came off and ended up losing 29-28.

Pats were in a battle for first seed with the STeelers and losing this game cost them that #1 AFC seed.

They won out the rest of the year. One of the damndest games I ever saw in my life. I have vivid, horrid memories of that game and the comedy of errors that was the last three minutes.

I can honestly say a couple of weeks ago I wanted this to be that game... Can the Chiefs beat the Pack and keep them from a perfect season.
Now I'd actually feel awful about it if that were to happen.
A class team taken out by a team thats imploded..

#11 - Don't get mixed up betwen 'Arrowhead Stadium' and 'Royals Stadium'.

#12 - Make sure all the players bring shoes. Shoes are important.

#13 - Enjoy the Gates pregame meal in moderation and use wet naps. No player should be licking sauce off his fingers during a play.

#14 - Defensive players, like everyone else in the stadium, will know what play the Chiefs are going run on any given down. At least try to act a little suprised. It's the polite thing to do.

#15 - The training staff must check all players for Red-Green colorblindness.

#16 - Packers coaches and training staff should make sure all the players have done the State Farm 'double check' before the start of the game.

#17 - Green Bay players have to be careful they don't get caught up in the Arrowhead Mystique. Green Bay starters need to be in the stadium for warm ups, the rest of the players can continue to tailgate until just before kickoff.

#18 - The half-time offensive line v. defensive line pie eating contest should be cancelled.

#19 - Do not play 'Old Yeller' on the airplane during the flight down to KC.

#20 - Just watching film won't adequately prepare the Packers defense for the speed of the KC running attack. Defensive players should spend Friday walk-throughs at the DMV or post office to get used to the pace.

That is exactly what the Bears thought. I received several emails after that game, "we only thought we had to show up, wtf happened?"

The Chiefs have a lot of talent, and they are not nearly as dis-functional as that crap display we saw Sunday. They also have some pride, and I think this writer is "rite on" except for the McCluster part.
I hope their defense focuses on him.

Two problems with the bolded part.

1. The Bears started Caleb Hanie, the Packers are starting Aaron Rodgers.

2. We beat the Bears because of a hail mary. Had that not succeeded (like they tend to fail the other 98% of the times they are attempted) we most likely lose.

They don't count because I didn't read the thread. I read Gonzos post so Gonzo wins.

If a post is made and I don't read it does it matter? No.

I don't care what anyone says here: I bet they take the "W" this Sunday. Just enough to f*** up the draft order, but o'well. Have a Holly-Jolly Christmas!

I called this game for weeks. My brother and friends all called me crazy, but I just felt we really matched up well with them, and by this point in the season, we'd have almost nothing to lose. I should have bet on it....
