Well, it happened…
The Chiefs made some big news for once, for the first time in years. They beat the undefeated Green Bay Packers at Arrowhead. Huge upset. One the Packers may not recover from. Their defense has been poor all season, Aaron Rodgers looked terrible and the Pack looked very beatable.
Reminded me of New England towards the end of their unbeaten run – they were just worn out.
The Chiefs defense showed up big. They had a good running game and quarterback Kyle Orton played mistake free football. They executed the perfect game plan. And Romeo Crennel may have won the Head Coaching job for next season.
It was a nightmare for your humble scribe, as I need one more loss to win my season bet and was sure this would be it. How could it not be? But it wasn’t. Now I need God’s Squad and Tim Tebow next week at Denver to win it for me. Christ!
I give credit to a Chiefs team that is building a good defense.
With a good quarterback this core unit could challenge next year. Drew Brees would be nice at $60 million for three years, if he would come here. He’s a free agent, but everyone will make a run at Drew. Most likely it will be hot and then cold with Kyle Orton.
Today he was good, but history shows he is only a notch above Matt Cassel.
So he’s likely not the answer.
We’ll see.Meanwhile, let’s give credit where credit is due; the Chiefs won and got some respect today.
