Chiefs/Chargers Scouting Report

Smart, hard hitting analysis from Teicher


http://www.kansascity.com/2012/10/31...ng-report.html



When the Chiefs run
EDGE >> CHARGERS
The Chiefs are the one team to have better than respectable rushing totals this season against San Diego. Jamaal Charles had 92 yards and the Chiefs gained 5.4 yards per carry last month against the Chargers. But the Chiefs have been beaten up front by their last two opponents, limiting their ability to run the ball. Worse, they handed the ball to their runners just 11 times against Oakland last week. They had better not give up on the run game so quickly Thursday night.



When the Chiefs pass
EDGE >> CHARGERS
Matt Cassel will start at quarterback for the Chiefs instead of the injured Brady Quinn. The only way Cassel will succeed is by stopping the heavy flow of turnovers. He has 16 in the six games in which he’s played and the Chiefs have no chance to win if he’s costing the Chiefs chances to score points and consistently tilting the field-position advantage to the Chargers. But he also needs more help than he’s been given by his teammates.


When the Chargers run
EDGE >> CHARGERS
Consistency has been a problem for the Chargers. Only twice this season have they been able to rush for more than four yards per carry during a game. The Chiefs did a nice job of slowing down the Chargers the last time. But the Chargers will bring a different look to their running game against the Chiefs. Ryan Mathews is healthy and out of Norv Turner’s doghouse because of fumbling problems. He gives the Chargers more big-play ability than Jackie Battle.


When the Chargers pass
EDGE >> CHARGERS
After having a big game against the Chiefs last month, Philip Rivers has cooled off a bit. He had a four-interception game against Denver and then barely completed half of his pass attempts last week against Cleveland. He’s also been limited by having a lack of reliable receivers to throw to. But none of that was a problem against the Chiefs the last time, when Eric Berry had difficulty covering tight end Antonio Gates.


Special teams
EDGE >> CHARGERS
The Chiefs had a couple of key breakdowns last week that cost them 10 points in a game they eventually lost by 10. While it’s reasonable to believe the usually surehanded Javier Arenas won’t be dropping any punt returns again soon, infractions such as the offside penalty to Jalil Brown on an Oakland field-goal attempt are occurring far too often for the Chiefs in the kicking game. They had three special-teams penalties in the first quarter alone in the recent loss to Tampa Bay.


Coaching
EDGE >> CHARGERS
Norv Turner and Romeo Crennel are coming under fire from their local fans for being in charge of underachieving teams. San Diego’s problems, except the subpar season from Rivers, are more understandable. The Chargers have had significant injury problems, particularly on offense. The Chiefs’ troubles, to the extent they’re happening, defy a logical explanation. This team should be beyond getting blown out every week, but Crennel can’t find a way to get the Chiefs around that.


X-factor
EDGE >> CHARGERS
The situation isn’t particularly sweet for the Chargers, who have lost three straight games as talk increases that Turner and general manager A.J. Smith will be fired at season’s end. But San Diego has to be confident about this game after routing the Chiefs at Arrowhead last month. The Chiefs are just trying to find that elusive formula that allows them to actually lead during a game and then be competitive throughout.


Bottom line
More than anything else, two failures are killing the Chiefs. By repeatedly committing turnovers, they’re not only costing themselves a chance at points but also giving the opponent a short field with which to work. By consistently falling behind early, they’re allowing the opponent to dictate the terms of the game to them. So things for the Chiefs would look a whole lot better Thursday night and for the rest of the season if they can those factors around. But turnovers and large deficits may be in their DNA. If that’s true, they have no shot to beat the Chargers. Prediction: Chargers 30, Chiefs 13.

I didn't read it, but I have been wondering one thing: are the Chargers going to try to force turnovers?

I don't think they need to. They just happen.

Are the Chargers pulling their starters for the whole 2nd half?

Let me see if I can sum up the OP;

The Chiefs suck, the Chargers suck less, Chargers win.

How did I do?

Turnovers lol between Cassell & Philip Rivers this game could be a classic badminton exabition. The difference in this eliment is that the Chargers are more likely to score points off of our turnovers. We on the other hand are enept at such things. So I will give the edge to the Dolts if this is the case. Yet we can't factor out that Philip is just as prone to turn the ball over as we are. A pick 6 could in fact give us a lead for a change and that could turn into a win. ****ing Philip Rivers better not blow this loss for us
