Well sir, they did it…
The defense showed up – and yes, that includes Derrick Johnson – to join THE FRANCHISE, Matt Cassel to win the Chiefs biggest game in years. Thank you, Matt. For being a tough son of a bitch. You proved that you are MVP of this team and an all-league quarterback. Cassel will likely join Tom Brady and Peyton Manning on that squad.
And thank you, Chiefs defense, for stopping by. We need you to win out.
If KC wins out, they would be 11-5. Odd that’s the same record they had when last they won some play off games in 1993/4 with Joe Montana. They also won the division that season for the first time in two decades.
The next two games at home depend, not on Matt, but on the defense.
We will have enough offense to win them both, but can our defense show up to stop the Titans 38 year-old quarterback?
The can we stop Oakland’s running game and long balls to Ford? It’s all defense. Defense wins championships.
He did make the two big catches, but dropped an easy one.. Hope he got my message, We’ll see. Dexter McCluster is still a no-show. He can help in the last two games.
The big run by Jamaal Charles sealed the deal. However the running game needs to improve overall. It was much better than the last couple of games. Thomas Jones did pick up a couple short runs for first downs that he usually doesn’t get.
However you take out Charles big run and it was kinda average day for the run game.
Can Matt get it done at home? I think so.
It will make a great Xmas gift for all the KC fans, especially in this tough economic period. So lets "GET ER DONE"
By the way, crazy as this season has been, with Green Bay one play from beating the NFL’s best, New England, the Giants giving up four touchdowns to the Eagles in 7 minutes to lose the game and the Jets beating Steelers at their home, anything can happen.
