And Atlanta is the only undefeated team in the NFC. So yes, the Chiefs are THE talk of sports media regarding the NFL. Remember the Falcons were the NFC champs last year and lost the close one to New England, soooo everybody expected them to be very good, not so much KC.
Can the Chiefs keep rolling all year?
They sure could folks.
The big battle will be staying healthy. We have older key players in big roles. Justin Houstin is clearly the dean of our defense. This is the first time since he signed a mega million dollar contract three years ago he’s been healthy for three straight regular season games! Damn. Yes he has delivered. What’s scary is he can get better, much better.
Trouble is, he tends to get hurt easy and often, then never really plays anymore that season. We don’t have any other dominating linebackers with Tamba Hali washed up.
Derrick Johnson is still a season long question mark coming back from leg injury at age 35. DJ is playing well and helping set up the defense, but doesn’t have that speed anymore and you worry about him getting hurt again. It’s a long season and he’s in on tons of tackles.
The hero is clearly Daniel Sorenson.
Daniel is the Eric Berry replacement and this guy is everywhere – safety, corner, linebacker. Hell, he might even do a jet sweep one day! This player has arguably been the MVP on defense and he reminds me of Donnie Edward. The guy’s not big, not real fast but damn he is where the ball winds up.
The Chiefs offense might be the best in the NFL with a little more work.
We all know Kareem Hunt is as of today the best running back in the NFL and rookie of the year. Tyreek Hill is deadly but needs more deep balls coming his way from Alex Smith. Travis Kelce needs to be a bigger part of the offense, especially on short yardage. Clearly there is some anger towards him from his coach due to his continued bad behavior on the field and fear of him fumbling or just dropping passes on big plays.
Let’s find out.
We need to find a back up running back and we need to use Chris Conley at wide out to take pressure off of Hill.
Weapons, weapons, weapons – we’re always looking for more of them.
Overall the Chiefs are looking very good. Defense is a bit soft at times but so are all the other teams. Our offensive line continues to be just average. Alex Smith needs to throw deeper more often to open up short passes and the running game. Smith has to continue to be a bit daring.
We play Washington Monday Night.
Another reason the media loves KC is they start a long string of prime evening games with no other game on during theirs. It’s THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS…AMERICA’S TEAM…finally, huh?
As for college we just don’t have a team in KC to follow. K-State will get a win but have no shot to win the Big 12, maybe third place.
KU and MU suck.
I’ll say this KU’s offense is improving and they might win ONE more. Wow.
Sorry guys I have sucked so far….college is really tough. The top teams have to give up so many points and often just can’t cover. The Pros also have few consistent teams, but I have to pick so tread lightly for now.
Wisconsin -7 over NorthWestern in a tease with Clemson -1 over Virginia Tech..
KANSAS CITY – 1 over Washington in a tease with New England -1 over Carolina on a tease
Atlanta -1 over the Bills on a tease with New England -1 over Carolina
