Glazer: Chiefs Win, Woe Are We

Well, it was a case of two bad teams playing for some sanity…

The Chiefs – badly outplayed in the first half – caught breaks and lucked out when Jamaal Charles decided to carry the team. With over 200 yards rushing, including a 91 yard dash to the end zone, KC saved some face. Not too much but some. Hey a win is a win.

As I wrote before the game, the Chiefs had a chance to win this one, both teams have talent but no leaders. Seems the Saints are just in Head Case Land. How else do you explain Drew Brees being on it so well in the first half and shut down the second?

Yet the Chumps – I mean, Chiefs – showed heart by not caving in when all looked lost in this overtime 27-24 thriller.

Matt the Franchise looked lost most of the time, but found Charles and D-Bowe late in the game which saved his butt. Now he can go to Quick Trip this week without having to  hear, “Matt YOU SUCK.”  Not as much anyway.

Sadly however, this may lead to a 6-10 or 7-9 season and again we pick like 14th in the draft and are unable to find a real quarterback, instead of going early with a bad record of say 3-13, (which is what this team really is).

This was the worst thing that could have happened to this horrible loser franchise.Well two bad teams playing for some sanity.

Winning was the worst thing that could have happened to this horrible loser franchise.

Now Scott Pioli will walk tall, and feels he won’t be fired at season’s end. Great news, huh?

Again the Chiefs were horrible overall horrible except for Charles and D-Bowe. Our defense got better, but as games continue will also be way below average as we’ve seen to this point.

That’s how I see it, anyway.

So this win may have been a bad thing, merely delaying the inevitable and ruining our chance to draft a young quarterback.

Dump Scott. Let Matt go. Find a real head coach.

With all that at hand we are three to five years away from being a contender. Damn.

However that said: CONGRATULATIONS CHIEFS…YOU WON A GAME AND ON THE ROAD!!!

    The thing that worries me are the injuries to Peyton Hillis, Rodney Hudson, and Dexter McCluster. Those 3 will affect both the running and short passing game. It will also affect the long passing game since that depends completely on play action. I hope they don’t have to then overuse Jamaal Charles and get him injured.
    If all 3 of these guys are out very long, the Cheifs will be in for a long season!

    CHEFS suck sweaty old man’s balls.

    That game was painful to listen to on the radio out in my garage, I could only imagine the horror of actually watching it.

    What do you call this win?

    Please, please no one out there get fired up about this win. The W-L column will show it on the W side, but this was, as many are saying, two bad teams playing each other and someone probably would win even if it took overtime to do it. Know this: the New Oleans Saints couldn’t stop a leak with a chubby finger. The officiating, if you want to call it that, helped the Chiefs in significant ways … and I’m not talking about penalties.

    With no run game reflected by 83 yards rushing and only two first downs on the ground, the Saints could easily be stopped by … let’s see … oh I know, the Chiefs! On the other side of the ball, six possessions end in field goals. Happy for Succop, but this is not a good sign against a bad defense. Red-zone offence by the Chiefs better step up or even a mediocre defense can shut them out.

    But, I think more telling is that a nice five-yards-per-carry average for the Chiefs Sunday couldn’t get those yards when it counted: Red Zone and third down. Only three teams league-wide in 2011 had a rushing average greater than five yards. But, why did that not pay off when it counted yesterday for the Chiefs? The Chiefs were 39 percent on third-down conversion going 7 for 18. That ratio is below the league median so far for third-down conversions. That’s too many three and outs against a bad rushing defense. What will that conversion ratio look like against the schedule this team faces?

    Now, if all that weren’t bad enough, look at the time of possession. The Chiefs had the ball for 42:32 of that overtime game compared to the Saints at 26:01. Last year’s league average hovered around 29:00 roughly speaking. Any NFL team with the kind of TOP difference the Chiefs enjoyed yesterday should win. I think this is both a reflection of how inept the Chiefs red-zone offence is and how bad New Orleans was.

    Yes, Charles and Bowe had days that will look good on the stat sheet in the weeks to come when people will look at what they did while forgetting the true context of whom they did it to. It was fun watching that 91-yard scamper Charles gave us. And, Bowe has certainly learned the skills of hand combat a wide receiver needs to cause separation.

    But, can a win be called a turd? Hmmm, good question.

  5. Guy Who Says What Others Think says:

    That was some awful football. The Saints’ defense is awful. Just awful. They got zero pressure from their front 4 on Cassel, and just NEVER blitzed. He had all day back there. When they finally did get pressure on him after 5 seconds of him standing in the pocket, he’d scramble around and badly overthrow Bowe by 10 feet, damn near getting Bowe killed. Awful.

    Charles isn’t going to rush for 2 bills plus every week. In fact, I’ll bet it doesn’t happen again this year. And the Chiefs aren’t going to play a team that’s personally be neutered by Roger Goodell either.

      Glad to see you guys were not fooled…however, believe it or not the Chumps could get by the Chargers at Arrowhead Sunday…be in first, right…don’t forget last year the Chumps lost three in a row to open the season…I even forgot and lost a gentleman’s bet to my pal that the Chumps then won four in a row and were in FIRST PLACE FOR A MINUTE….before falling apart..

      • Observer says:

        I agree that the Bolts are not world beaters, but I wonder if Sunday’s San Diego performance will not be indicative of who they really are. And, now that Mr. Manning seems to be missing a front line and a 35-yard laser, this division just went into the toilet after three games. So, should we be happy to lead a crappy division? Sure. But, what does it really mean in the rest of the league? We don’t measure success in the NFL by a league title, but Super Bowl appearances. It’s the only real measure of success … just ask Dan Marino. I’m not convinced any of these four teams are deserving of a division title, but it’s early. Now, excuse me while I go watch my winter greens grow … they represent a universe more hope than the Chiefs do.

        • Craig Glazer says:

          Don’t count Manning so fast, I still him as outstanding, no he’s not what he was two years ago…but he is still very good, his team around him is just ok, so that’s an issue, no great weapons…but I see them at 10-6 and winning the division…Chargers maybe 10-6 or 9-7 Chumps at 6-10/7-9 Raiders right there with the Chumps, all average or worse but Broncos…who knows anymore in the playoffs…don’t count New England or Baltimore out yet…Houston is the best but anything can happen….NFC looks stronger with Atlanta, niners, Giants and maybe a suprise team like Az…who knows, it’s a long season.

      • harley says:

        glaze you should sticck to things you no about. articles about girls and the like. with football you say thing like “the chiefs could beat new orleans” or ” the ciefas could beat the charger”. you should jujst say any team can beat any team any time. then all your bses would be covered. what was your record on your picks this week. looking “kinda” weakk on the picks glaze.

        • Craig Glazer says:

          nope still a winning record, not weak with all the upsets…nobody I know picks better than me, nobody…remember its your key bets that matter most…Atlanta over KC game one I go to vegas and bet..dig it…so I am more than fine…yes last year I opened much better Harley but its much tougher this season, agreed.

          • harley says:

            glaze when making your weekly bbets you should specify which bet or bets is your “key bet” or just write articles about girls

  6. chuck says:

    I agree with Glaze and every single comment with one exception.

    Manning’s arm is sporadic at best.

    The Chargers looked really bad.

    The Chiefs could be 2 and 2.

    Weakest division in the NFL.

    Oh well, they won and it’s good for the city.

    :)

  7. Rick Nichols says:

    The lowly Chiefs get a “W” by bedeviling the fallen Saints.
    Yes, we’re only 1-2, but at least we’re not the 0-3 “ain’ts”.

    Well, sure looks like Pioli and Crennel are safe for at least another week.
    Better hope their “three-point scoring machine” doesn’t spring a “leak”.

    The NFL was founded on $500 given by Al Capone to Charles Bidwell to give to George Halas to buy the Bears. Bidwell later bought O’Brien’s Chicago Cardinals.

    After the Black Sox scandal, bets dried up. Capone knew he needed a safe, secure venue which would be run on the up-and-up so the suckers would bring back the action.

    And now the Grand Poobah of the NFL is going to make smashing the striking refs his signature move. Well actually his signature move is making himself bigger than the game.

    The NFL would not exist without gambling and the bettors are going to pull their money if this circus continues to be run from the monkey cage.
