So the Chiefs are now 3-0 and are arguably the best team in the NFL, right?
Maybe in this new NFL where there are no shut down defenses and parody has taken over, the day of the upset is all but gone.
Hell, the lowly Chicago Bears beat the heavily favored Steelers today.
The Chiefs had really no offense at all today, did they? All their points came off early turnovers by the Chargers aging and slow QB Phillip Rivers. He is a shadow of his old self.
Yet Rivers was handed like a million chances to win the game by KC and Alex Smith.
Pssst…we had zero offense most of the game.
The Chiefs scored nothing in the second half until Kareem Hunt’s gallant long scoring run to end the game.
Alex turned back into, well, Alex. Careful, safe, boring and with zero it factor.
He will never have that magic. He’s a guy playing over his head and a good but just not a great quarterback. He never will be. It’s that thing you are born with and Alex just wasn’t. Not his fault.
Today Kelce had one catch for one yard. Super Star!
We do need to use Chris Conley some and perhaps find another back somewhere. I know half of you will hate this but…
I still say we’d be more dangerous with Pat Mahomes at quarterback.
He’d make more mistakes but we would have a top offense and be a true Super Bowl team, if the D steps up with him. The other improvement this year is having a somewhat healthy Justin Houston playing well.
So we beat the Chargers 24-17 after leading from the first quarter 17-10 and not adding a point until the final drive and final play by Hunt. His long run, over 70 yards ended the contest. He is truly a great young back, perhaps 2000 yards is coming this year from him on the ground.
Hell, in 3 games he has 500 already. Maybe Alex will keep us winning. Hope so..
