Like last season the score was close…
But we lost and the Steelers manhandled the Chiefs.
Kansas City has a poor defense and it’s been covered by a very good scoring offense…until Sunday.
With only one first down in the first half, our offensive line was a joke with poor Alex Smith running for his life…..we got jacked.
We’re lucky the score wasn’t 40-10 as it should have been.
The Steelers beat us every way you can think of. Their running game was never stopped, Big Ben threw at least six major long balls and we just couldn’t get there. Our defense is slow with just has few top notch players.
Yes, Marcus Peters is very good and did get a wasted INT , but we did nothing on offense. Justin Houston is very good, but was shut out Sunday.
That’s it for stars on defense.
As I said before the regular season began, “We have no linebackers except Houstin if he is healthy, otherwise nobody…DJ is done at middle linebacker, to banged ups too slow now and can tackle but not rush or make the takeaways anymore. Tamba is finished, and Dee Ford is just a project.”
Well, that all came true today. Linebackers can’t stop the run.
I’m not going over all the stats folks why?
We are lucky we were even in the game in the fourth quarter. I give Alex Smith all the credit in the world – he played his heart out, as did Tyreek Hill and D Anthony Thomas.
Kareem Hunt was of little value. His early game no shows are starting to pile up. He can’t just get hot at game’s end and win. But he suffers from no blockers for the most part.
Hey, the Steelers are just better than us.
They have been for years.
We have never beaten Big Ben once when he played an entire game against us.
Our last big win ever was at Arrowhead following our 1993 western division title win with Joe Montana. KC beat the Steelers in overtime, great win, great game. It was our only meaningful win at Arrowhead….EVER.
Sorry it’s just true.
If you can’t win in the post season – and we can’t – you are not great. And we are not great.
I don’t see KC doing much better this year.
You just can’t fix little talent on defense and not much on the offensive line. Can’t be done.
We win the west and likely it ends against either the Steelers, Texans or maybe New England. We just ain’t got the talent, folks.
You saw that Sunday from a mentally wounded Steeler team that made it look like boys vs. men (and we weren’t the men).
I’m sorry for all of us, it just seems it’s not something we can fix.
WE LACK TALENT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL.
And that’s not something you can coach or trick play. Hey, the Chiefs will come back and win most of their remaining games. So it will still be a fun ride. But there will be no more talk of Super Bowls or being the best in the NFL – that’s over.
