“Somewhere the birds are chirping, somewhere the kids are singing and somewhere people are smiling…but in KANSAS CITY…Mighty Casey has struck out!”
The Chiefs were gallant last night on national TV. The defense, aided by bad weather, was very good. Especially our kinda-stars Derrick Johnson, Brandon Flowers, Justin Houston and Javier Arenas (he’s not a star but played well). Even Tamba Hali showed up.
The offense, led by the RUNNING of Matt Cassel worked because Matt ran boots outside where he could throw a bit or run. It might have been a good idea if they’d kept that up later in the game. Just a thought. You know, if you want to score like the only TD you’ve had in forever. But what do I know?
In the end they were the Chiefs.
No offense, one or two nice plays by Matt, dropped balls by D Bowe. Yeah, he had the big one to extend the game, but he’s the team’s only receiver. Jamaal Charles showed up finally for his first 100 yard game in what seems like ages. Nothing extra special, just decent. I still feel he’s near the end of his unimportant, 30-plus million dollar career.
Yes, we kept it close. Yes, it was on national TV and we looked like a real NFL squad.
but in the end Matt was intercepted and the Steelers won.
We had no offense nearly the entire game and now the Chiefs are 1-8 and that was their last hurrah.
The rest of the season we can only hope for zero wins to get a number one or number two draft pick, so we can blow that one again.
Nice try, but no cigar.
By the way, the Steelers might have won bigger had their starting quarterback Big Ben stayed in the game. He left early in the second half hurt.
Clearly the Steelers looked past Kansas City, they just wanted to win and go home.
And they did.
