A few random thoughts on the game...


THE GOOD STUFF:
• That was the D I hoped Gunther would bring to town. Attack the backfield and feast on Enemy miscues. I love you, Gun!

• The loss of Holmes diminishes certain aspects of our rushing attack [the perimeter and passing games], but Johnson brings a nice set of skills to the table. Speed, power and a big old dose of ‘tude. I would like to see more swing passes to him. Johnson Vs a DB brings a smile to my face.

• Jared Allen is fun to watch. The hit he put on Brady [which ended up being an incomplete pass] was textbook. Wrap him up, put him on his back and then fall on him. A classic QB crushing.

• Green was on-target yesterday. Maybe having Big Willie in there increases the comfort level.

• Mitchell continues to impress me. It is a good thing that the staff ignored the fans when they screamed “bust” over Kawika. I am also very impressed with Johnson. I can only hope that Bell will make more of an impact in the future. On the whole, the Chiefs’ LB corps has gone from a weakness to a strength.

• Parker did a fine job. Nary a drop that I can recall. And good games from Gonzalez, Kennison and Hall.

• One more time, thank goodness for Colquitt & Tynes. How refreshing to feel confident about the kickers.

• Great game by the much-maligned secondary. Big hits in run support and good coverage on the Patriots’ WRs. 4 INTs is a nice, round number.

• Willie is back.

• Brady’s QB rating was dreadful. Good stuff.

• The Arrowhead crowd was great. Several time outs can be credited to the noise. They brought their A game.

THE NOT-SO-GOOD STUFF:
• Special Teams blocking and coverage teams are pretty bad. We are either out of position or blocking in the back. A little more discipline, please.

• Red Zone Offense. 4 FGs is 12 points, but a couple of TDs would have iced the game much earlier. Personally, I think this will improve as Roaf gets back into game form.

• We need more push from the DTs. We will get Sims back, but I expect him to take a while to get into game form.

• Willie showed some rust. He was flat-out abused on one of Green’s sacks. The big guy is recovering from a hamstring, so he gets a lot of slack.

I simply do not care if the Patriots were riddled with injury. We dominated a team that we should have dominated. We righteously abused the NFL’s “golden boy” QB and won another “must win” game.

I need no disclaimers to enjoy this victory.

I'm pleased with a win any time, too, and was delighted at Willie's return. I don't recall the play where he got abused, but I remember being mystified at one Trent Green sack where Shields and Welbourne were double-teaming Ty Warren, and it looked like they just let him through. I don't know if each thought the other had him under control, but they simply parted like the Red Sea and then stood there while he sacked Trent. That was weird.

Oh, and sorry about all that "Kawika is a bust" stuff. That was me.

Mostly agree....

Push from our DL is just a problem we have to live with (Sims may help that) and I think sometimes Dalton/Browning wear down in the 2nd half...BUT they rarely get blown off the line and hence our much improved run D.

Pass protection was much better, even on the right side (Welbourne or Black??) and Trent looked a lot calmer which just proves the obvious point that pressure affects a QB, whether it is Green or Brady.

We still have problems running to the right, but up the middle our guys beat their guys, and their guys were starters, not backups.

LOVE the way LJ runs and gets ups and walks forward and taunts the D. He took some wicked hits but never backed down.

Sammie Parker gets more separation than any of our WRs. I hope he's got the dropsy’s figured out, he adds a lot...that 3rd down catch in the rain was clutch.

Kris Wilson?

AS abandons the run inside the 20, imho. I hope we get that figured out.

Our LBs are fun to watch, though I wish they got to the QB more. We get little pressure up the middle from either our DTs or our LBs. It all comes from the edges with our DEs and corner blitzes.

I still have no memory of Bell playing. He seems like a ghost to me. But I've read plausible explanations for his help against the run so I'm willing to believe that he's playing well, even though I don't see it. I hate seeing him in coverge though...we dropped him and rushed Mitchell on a 3rd and 8 they converted and I was thinking we should have done the exact opposite. Oh well.

The Defense is playing with supreme confidence. I hope it holds even if we go down early against Denver. Denver is the true test for Gunther, our D, Trent, and our Team.

Hoping Willie Roaf will get better is in vain. He gets kudos big-time, for playing the way he does at the age he is; same for Will Shields. Willie Roaf and Will Shields are probably done this season, so they are making the best with what they have. Great tribute to Will Shields for playing 200+ games for us.

Lining up Jared Allen as D-Tackle is not a good thing. He is a non-throwing arm-side DE, and is best used at that position.

The 12th man was the biggest factor in this game, although 9/10 seats were filled. I hope the Chiefs can do well against the Broncs, and on the road. Road wins will be the factor in our chances to make the playoffs.

I meant to post something to that effect after the game. I thought right from the start that Green looked a lot more confident -- as if he knew he didn't have to worry about the left side, he could just concentrate on reading the D downfield. I wonder if with Black in there, it wasn't just the pressure he got, but the EXPECTATION of pressure whenever he dropped back that rattled him.

Willie is his security blanket.

I would like to add 1 more to the GOOD column. I have been one of his critics, but I got to give credit where credit is due. Warfield IMO played another solid game. He seems to be wrapping up and playing with more of Guns attitude. I am not ready to say he has turned the corner yet but he is half way down the block.

I still believe the move to more play action passing is a big reason the pass protection is better. The fake to LJ up the middle slows everybody on the defense down for a split second.

It sure sets up a nice pocket for TG. He was stepping into his passes yesterday, not throwing off his back foot. LJ lookoed better at picking up blocks when the play action was called.

A couple things to add:

1. KC really needs to think about getting Dee Brown some reps. LJ's tounge is going to be hanging out shortly. Doesn't need to be much. 5-6 carries a game would mean a lot. T-Rich IS NOT A GOOD RUNNER at this stage in his career. He is an H-back at best.

2. Wilson and Dunn would be nice options at the goalline. Instead of sending only Gonzo into the endzone with 3 guys covering him, why not try Wilson? Remind me NEVER to by the crapola coming out of Arrowhead on Draft day again. What is that, 3 catches in his career? Some weapon.

3. Don't think that LJ's fumbling is a fluke. That's 3 lost fumbles this year. I noticed and wrote on this forumn in week one that he would cough up the ball regularly this season. all you have to do is watch how he holds it. If not corrected, it will happen again and likely cost us a game like the first two did.

Greg Wesley has had six interceptions in the last six games, he is one off of the AFC lead. I hope this trend continues, would be nice to see him ruin Plummer's day.

While Willie has some rust, I thought he looked good, I saw him running after a play which is a good sign.

The Defense was great, while Indy has been the talk of the town, I think by the end of the year our unit will be getting some props. Thank you Gun!

The Kawika Mitchell bust stuff is mostly my fault. The guy can't make a play running downfield so Gunther stopped moving him downfield. The guy is excellent in traffic and moving laterally. Gunther has done a stellar job with his development. Props for both Gunther and Mitchell.
