Glazer: Chiefs Facing Steep Odds Plus Picks

Could this be the end of the Chiefs run?

Every expert I listen to picks Deshaun Watson and Houston to defeat our boys Sunday. Kansas City is the NFL’s only undefeated team this year at 4-0. The Texans are THE up and coming power in the AFC and NFL. Like Kansas City a top five power ranking with ESPN and others. Why the excitement on Texas?

MISTER WATSON, I PRESUME.

Watson now has his team near the top in passing yards and overall offense. But so does Alex Smith and the Chiefs. KC has the league’s top rusher in Kareem Hunt, who boasts more than 500 yards rushing in just 4 games. Smith has 8 touchdown passes in just four games – already half of what he had last season.

So why the feeling that Houston will win?

Simple, the speed of Watson and his ability to throw on the run, as well as run. Folks, you will see a mirror image of our next quarterback, Pat Mahomes Sunday in Watson.

Watson is a scary guy.

Remember, he defeated Alabama last year in the national championship game with his last minute drive. They had one of college’s all-time best defenses and Watson shredded them.

Last week he had five touchdowns and put over 50 points up.

The Chiefs are a bit slow up front on defense. Only Justin Houston is a league leader in sacks with four. Our guys can’t get to quarterbacks much.

Even Phillip “Old Man”Rivers could out run our defenders and get his throws off. Watson will eat us alive on 3rd and long if we can’t get to him. We have to cut off his moving outside of the pocket or it will be a long day/night for KC.

Houston also has one of the league’s top defenses with JJ Watt and Jadeveon Clowney, both not slow to the quarterback. Alex Smith has been deadly when he gets outside the pocket and throws on the run or runs himself. We need more of that Sunday. Smith needs to go downfield much more with his throws.

Problem: our offensive line is at best average when not injured and can’t keep defenders off Smith for long.

To get our offense rolling again: WE HAVE TYREEK HILL, A MONSTER, STOP FAKING HANDOFFS TO HIM ‘GIVE HIM THE BALL’ LET HIM RUN.

It makes the defense have to follow him and get off Hunt and Smith more. Plus if he gets 5 or 6 handoffs he’s likely to break a couple deep.

This is the toughest game this season for KC other than going to New England.

A win Sunday would lock up the title of best in the NFL for now.

Look, KC isn’t going to go 16-0.

So let’s say with no big injuries and Smith staying aggressive, we win 13.

Likely that will garner homefield advantage.

Now if could just win a game at home in the playoffs…hummmm.

This is a big game and a pick ’em. For me it’s a no bet, to hard to call. I love our Chiefs and want them to win. So because of that…gulp…Chiefs 28-24.

    CAPTION THAT PIC

    A man and his two ‘dogs’: any picks say Chiefs will win two games the post season
    [ rimshot / cymbal crash! ] πŸ˜‰

    “Could this be the end of the Chiefs run?”

    – could be (although four games isn’t much of a run; Green Bay Packers winning every Superbowl/World Championship 1961-1967 (as in 5) save for 3… that’s a run. Case the swiss, don’t despair… even when they lose yet again end this year, they’ll just start up another run ‘next year’… just you ‘wait till’ then, 2018.

    “Every expert I listen to picks Deshaun Watson and Houston to defeat our boys Sunday.”

    – not every… found several who do pick the swiss (though all those have zip codes such as 64030, 64110, 64129, 64187 and the like…)

    “Folks, you will see a mirror image of our next quarterback, Pat Mahomes Sunday in Watson.

    – disagree… Mahomes arm is to Watson’s legs as Watson’s arm is to Mahomes legs which, depending offensive scheme, might be six of one/half a dozen the other.)

    However, terms footwork the pocket, Watson is Fred Astaire to Mahomes who, well… this video of him working with coaches putting him through training paces convinces he’s a ‘project’ still a long, Long, LONG ways from being ready:

  3. E.H. says:

    I just think Reid is going to have his Chiefs take a night off at Houston. He’s got 4 games in 19 days and they gotta save themselves for another day. I say Watson and Co. blows us out but irregardless, this loss will be a victory for the Chiefs.

  4. Fake Name Guy says:

    Lost your college bet. Those tease bets are a fool’s playground.

    • CG says:

      Fake guy you need to look at those numbers….the college was a push…I tied the Clemson game and won the Florida game…so that is a push…even…I won the two NFl games KC and Packers…so it was a 2 and 0 weekend and finally decent one…teases are great fake guy when you win them, just like any bet….

  5. CG says:

    Notice before the games are played not too many comments…K is always there with his history of why KC is a suck franchise, and sometimes a few comments on the Chiefs. Remember boom boom wants to pick games since I don’t know what I’m doing….yet he never does only comments after the weekend. When I picked well last year he went silent…sooo that’s that. Hope KC can win tonight. I’m very worried for them. We need all we have to stop these guys.

    • E.H. says:

      So far in the 1st quarter KC is looking pretty good, Houston seems off tonight and they’re defense is weak due to injuries.

  6. Kerouac says:

    It’s the halftime report, brought to you by: MEDEVAC, providers of stretchers, xrays, & ambulance rides… like a good neighbor (picking up the broken pieces), MEDEVAC is there!

    OUT – JJ Watt, best defensive player the NFL, and Whitney Mercilus, Teaxsn 2nd best defender.

    Anybody seen #27? The great-overhype aka ‘invisible man’ has been totally ‘kareemed’ by the stellar HOU Texans defense, despite having lost their best two defensive players via injury. 25 yards on 14 carries for a nifty 1.8 ypc… his new nickname, ‘Silent’.

    Meanwhile, 2017 NFL Rookie of the Year Deshaun Watson has put even more distance between himself and the swiss pretender, already an td (his 10th this year) & 73 yards, including a 13.0 ypc rushing (hang your head in shame, #27.)

    Now, second half action continues in this their 47th consecutive season of ‘wait till next year’ swiss!

    πŸ™‚

    • Kareem Hunt just broke 100 yards….And the Chiefs are up 19 points. Watching the game, Ros?

    • BOOM BOOM says:

      WRONG AGAIN OLD MAN.
      HUNT’S NEW NAME IS #1 RUSHER IN NFL! PROBABLE ROOKIE OF YEAR!
      BEST FIND BY CHIEFS! COOL DUDE!
      He wasn’t silent. Turn the hearing aid us keerowacky.
      Get a new Beltone
      Maybe use paper towel cardboard to hear better.

    • CG says:

      K as it turned out Hunt had another 100 plus yard game and the KC offense was overall very good. Alex had a big game as did Travis ‘injured’ Kelce and now likely out for the season Chris Conley…health is now the Chiefs biggest enemy.

      • BOOM BOOM says:

        come on glazo….even up and pick games versus boom boom
        abd loser never posts again on kcc.
        you keep avoiding my bet but yet keep saying boom boom
        never picks games.
        Your record is horrible.
        I would destroy you in even up picks.
        You’re hiding from boom boom.
        Lets see who’s the king!

  7. Kerouac says:

    End of 3rd quarter/early 4th update

    Watson with the ‘hat trick… 3 tds, all passing… ‘Silent’ Hunt’s 0

    157 total yards for Deshaun ‘The One’ Watson… 57 for ‘Silent’

  8. Fake Name Guy says:

    I’m just saying your picks are horrendous.

    If you tried to pick your nose you would poke out your eye.

    If you tried to pick your butt you would sexually assault the person standing next to you.

    you wrote. In other words…exit stage left. My bet still holds. We both pick games without teaser trash. Loser never posts on kcc. Hearne can control it. Ya in. Or
    are you afraid of boom boom.

    now I get serious.

      HARLY I OFFERED TO PICK AGAINST YOU..STARTS WITH YOU PICKING GAMES…SO THIS WEEK POST YOUR PICKS ON THURS FOR THE WEEKEND AND I WILL DO THE SAME HOWS THAT. As for Ralphie I talked about him on Stanfords Facebook, he was a Stanfords regular for years as was his wife. Sad to see it. Nobody who knew him was surprised he had some deep problems with his weight and health….still sad.

      • BOOM BOOM says:

        has stanfords closed. this should be a big time for your place. Why is it closed down?

      • SOCOM 91 says:

        Craig, you seem like a smart guy. It’s much more entertaining when you DON’T reply to Harley/Boombutt and he starts having a meltdown due to lack of attention. Have you honestly not yet realized that he has a HUGE man-crush on you and is a repressed homosexual? I have nothing against gay people – hey, do whatever makes you happy in this life and more power to you. But own who you are and be proud of it. You are the consummate ladies man, CG. Let Harley know he’s barking up the wrong tree and let him down easy.

  10. BOOM BOOM says:

    wow…this concussion thing is freaking crazy.
    are the players too big and fast.
    maybe go to flag football and save lives.
    Concussion is like getting hit by a car going 40mph
    JJ WATT IS NFL MAN OF THE YEAR. 40 MILLION RAISED FOR HOUSTON
    VICTIMS.
    Maybe players should be collecting money for the needy instead of kneeling.
    How can 10 freaking people get 300 million americans so upset? The other
    299,999,990 people in america respect the flag and what it stands for.
    But then one nut job in vegas can kill 59 kids/one nutjob can kill 20 first graders.
    The world is just fu**ing nuts right now.
    Chiefs fans need to honor vets who died and forget the “chiefs” chant and honor the
    brave who protect us and allow us our freedoms during anthem.

    Welcome to the Deshaun ‘The One’ Watson post game show! Brought to by your good friends at MEDEVAC: you injure ’em, we’ll tote ’em out & bury- er, transport em the ER. Achilles tendon tears, leg fractures, concussions & other assorted/sordid oweees, otherwise.

    Final stats for Canton-bound Deshaun ‘Hall of Fame’ Watson, aka ‘DW 40’, aka ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’ aka 2017 NFL Rookie of the Year:

    Watson with five (that’s ‘5’) more tds, giving the best QB in the 2017 NFL draft 14 tds on the season; meanwhile, ‘Silent’ H scored… 0; on the season, only 6 – Watson more than doubling the swiss over-hype. (in a related note ‘Pine’ Mahomes stats: 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0.0 … he’s making progress)

    Yards from scrimmage Watson: 292 on 19 touches, a 15.4 yp as ‘DW 40’ ‘lubes up’ the swiss and tears ’em a new one; the distant runnerup for ROY ‘Silent’ H finished with a sub-average 3.6 yp & needed all of 32 touches to do even that.

    On the season: WATSON 14 tds, 12 passing and 2 rushing… ‘Silent’ H 6, 4 rsh & 2 rcv

    WINNER – NFL Rookie of the Year – DESHAUN WATSON! πŸ™‚
    __________

    Now that the beyond debate issue has been settled in the Texan’s favor… even losing their best two defenders early in the game the Texans were in the game from start to finish. Piling up 405 yards on offense vs the swiss chiefs suspect D (doing so behind the consensus worst offensive line in the league), up and coming future Champions the NFL HOU Texans are but experience away from winning an Lombardi. Look for them in post season as early this year, and look for them to have as good a chance as the overhyped swiss or any other team in the NFL.

    Final notes:

    A new nickname for the swiss #22: beaten for another td tonight/3 in the last 2 games, ‘Toast’ still applies, but now the apropos ‘Pu**y’ Peters becomes permanent. Didja see that ‘ole!’ he performed on the HOU RB, rather than tackle him. Turned his back, spun around and watched HOU’s Foreman steamroll about 5 swiss. So much for #22’s ‘fist’ raise (what is that ”P***y’ Peters, black power’?) That he hangs his head down low (in shame) when he fists before the start each game, well, words do not suffice the irony.)

    Kryin’ Kelce the Klown (hey ref, that guy touched me!) had to leave tonight’s game early (someone actually had the gall to tackle him, rendering him unable continue, due his ‘hey look at me everybody!’ schtick going on the fritz.

    Still not impressed swiss… were that only 5 games equaled success. Recall Reid at 9-0 start the season 2013… then he went 4-3 over the next 7 and it was the usual ‘one and done’ post season; 2017 will be no different based on their performance to date.

    Updated NFL Rookie of the Year stats the ballyhooed three
    (but only ‘The One’ is legit… guess who?)

    1 WATSON – 145 / 90 / 1,072 / 12 – 4 / 62.1% / 7.4 ypa / PASSING
    ” WATSON – 16 / 188 / 2 / 11.8 ypc / RUSHING
    = 1,260 YARDS AND 14 TDS FROM SCRIMMAGE

    Questions? None.

    2 ‘Silent’ H – 97 / 609 / 4 / 6.27 ypc / RUSH ~ 16 / 166 / 2 / 10.4 / REC
    3 ‘Pine’ Mahomes – 0 / 0 / 0 / 0-0 / 00.0/ 0.0 ypa / PASS & RUSH
    = 775 yards and only 6 tds for the swiss ‘two-some’

    Mitch Trubisky – MONDAY! MONDAY! MONDAY! NIGHT DEBUT – BE THERE!!!

  13. Kerouac says:

    Good things to know…

    Watson has more td passes (12) than anyone in the NFL not named Aaron Rodgers (14), another future Hall of Famer (like Watson; for the record, Alex Smith has only 11 tds.)

    One typo: Watson has 1,251 total yards and not 1,260 (179 rushing, not 188… slacker.)

    πŸ™‚

  14. Jim a.k.a. BWH says:

    Week 5 and another Chiefs win. Smith, Hunt & Company with a dominate performance on the road. Once again, Alex Smith was the best QB on the field and Hunt notched another 100+ yard game. Chiefs controlled the ball, the clock and the game from the start. The halftime score of 23-7 was even more lopsided than that.

    The 13 year veteran QB definitely got the best of the rookie, who was playing from behind the entire game. Completion percentage, total yards and time of possession were all in the Chiefs’ column. Chiefs possessed the ball for more than an entire QUARTER more than the Texans.

    Still the best team in the NFL (for now).

    Go Chiefs!

  15. More good things to know.

    Watson’s 1,251 total yards put him 140 yards behind…..Alex Smith (1,391).

    Deshaun Watson had an excellent QB Rating of 119.8 against the Chiefs….only 10.4 points lower than the 130.2 rating of…..Alex Smith.

    Finally, the Texans scored their season high 34 points. Only 8 points less than the 42 points put up by….The Chiefs.

    Scoreboard, bitch.
