After a miracle finish provided a victory in week one,
Chiefs fans had hope. A fast offensive start this week
worked well until the team settled for three points on
two straight long drives.
The bend-but-dont-break defense broke again. Hope
is diminished and the fact that the team travels to play
the hottest team in football next week doesnt help.
Sharpen those pencils
Take A Memo
Ladies and gentleman introducing your starting
KC Chiefs cornerbacks, Eric Torchfield and William Burnee.
Explain to me why the Chiefs went away from the
short passes, the play action and the misdirection that
worked in the first quarter and a half.
Its obvious that Green doesnt have
the arm strength to throw deep. Why call those plays?
How lucky are the Chiefs not being 0-2 headed into
a potential disaster in New England?

C) Throw it away.
His passes on the move are far too inaccurate for
Johnny Morton was signed to make plays. Explain
to me why he has four touches after two games.

deep throws into double coverage Marlon McCree (2 INTs
30 yards) would have been pro bowl bound ala the Denver
Broncos Deltha ONeal.
While the Chiefs debate the term red zone and gold
zone, against the Jags it was the dead zone.
Jimmy Smiths fourth down TD catch and run

This defense has zero playmakers.
This defense needed one stop to give the offense

This defense misses more assignments than the football
