Is Craig Glazer always wrong?
That’s what some of you guys like to think.
Are these speedy Kansas City Chiefs gonna win one or more games this season? Is my pick to go under a fool’s bet? That’s right, I say go under the 8 1/2 wins. The Chiefs will need 9 wins to cover the bet that I said is impossible. After seeing their win in game one against a decent Bengals team, could I be wrong?
Let’s take a look.
The always injured tight end Travis Kelce had a 70 yard touchdown run. Nice. He looked very good out there and we haven’t had a good tight end since Tony G.
De’Anthony Thomas – the new running back from the “Ducks” – was also on fire. And he ran one back to the end zone. Nice.
Running back Knile Davis, the second year back from Arkansas, looked fast and ready to roll with Jamaal Charles in the Chiefs backfield. Nice
Our defense intercepted a couple and cornerback Sean Smith ran one in for a TD. Nice.
And it was a high scoring fun game to watch right?
Our first team offense was beyond bad.
Only 33 yards in three series. They did nothing. And looked lost.
Offensive tackle Eric Fisher the new LT to protect quarterback Alex Smith got jacked by Robert Geathers who left Eric face down on the turf and then sacked Smith causing a fumble. Not good.
Our defense was as bad as ever. Nobody could cover anything all night. Our secondary was as bad as bad can be.
No real pass rush..again.
Hey, it’s just preseason, but I saw enough.
With no offensive line – and we have none – no corners or safety play – again we have none- it’s going to be a long season. A very long season.
This year’s Chiefs will need to win shoot outs. Like 38-35 or 45-44 games.
Because we have no defense, NONE. Zip.
The fast backfield will help and since coach Andy Reid knows he has no receivers, he will have Smith throw to his backs a ton. They’re fast and talented so that gives the Chiefs a chance to score on anyone.
The problem is our defense is so bad that anyone can throw or run on us.
Look for maybe 7 wins – 8 is now possible due to speed – but not likely.
THE UNDER 8 1/2 IS A LOCK.
