Take A Memo:
Vermeil may now have a grasp on the rivalries
that envelop the AFC West.
The Broncos verbally attacked newly acquired WR Eddie
Kennison during the middle of last week and the first
guy to his defense was none other than coach Vermeil.
He also threw out a little smack of his own towards the
heavily fined Broncos squad basically telling them to
clean up their own mess before commenting on his.
There is no way to be certain if that is what fired up
the Chiefs early in Sundays 26-23 victory over the
hated Broncos, but they came out with an emotional swagger
early and it set the stage for the game.
The crowd at the stadium sure noticed as they cheered
wildly for Kennison in his early successes in this one.
This was a wild, sloppy game with a bunch of accolades
Take A Memo.
KR Dante Hall cant break a tackle.
RB Priest Holmes can break lots of tackles.
The plan to get Kennison involved early set a nice
Heylook what QB Trent Green can do with some
Do the Chiefs teach the kicker to drill the ball
out of bounds at least once a game on kick-offs?
Great acting job by Mazlowski in the 1st quarter
drawing a 15-yard personal foul penalty on Broncos LB
In case Eric Warfield hasnt noticed, Broncos
WR Rod Smith likes to run crossing routes.
This defense might be good if.....They had some
decent defensive tackles.
In case you are wondering, Priest Holmes is signed
for 4 more years.
The Chiefs won their second game after knocking
out a starting QB. The first was in San Diego. Both were
Todd Peterson is one frustrating kicker, but Im
sure the Steelers would take him.
Whos that Derrick Alexander guy? Hes
not bad when he shows up and plays.
The WRs had 223 yards receiving. Trent Green
had a QB rating of 114.8 for the game. Coincidence? I
The call in OT to Snoop Minnis was brilliant. Once
the corner bit on the in fake, it was wide open.
Minnis should have scored a TD on that play.
Eddie Kennison tallied 76 total yards on offense
against his former team.
The offensive line is great at run blocking.
The offensive line is not so great at pass blocking
Brian Waters belongs on the offensive line, not
in the backfield as a fullback.
The Chiefs punted only one time during the game
and its a good thing as it was returned for 26 yards.
Did anyone else notice that Vermeil called a timeout
and froze his own kicker?
Is OT John Tait regressing? His false start at
the end of the 4th quarter was inexcusable and the Chiefs
may not have needed OT if he could have been more disciplined.
Expect a nice little Christmas donation from Dick
Vermeil to NFL charities during his deserved criticism
of the union refs during his post game comments. The NFL
will fine him.
(Tongue in cheek) Its a shame the Chiefs
had to torch the Broncos opportunity for the playoffs
this season. (/tongue in cheek)
