Default ~~~ Official 2007 KC Chiefs Don\'t Totally Suck thread ~~~

All I'm saying is putting us at 32nd in the league power rankings is ridiculous. I think when all is said and done the Chiefs are going to be 8-8, maybe 9-7. Yay not much to get excited about. But I'm sorry I have to much pride to see all the national pundits piling on like a bunch of freaking trained monkeys. We are not that bad.

Our defense is exactly what I thought they would be, good bordering on very good. Jared Allen back makes all the difference in the world. He and Tamba Hali are both pro bowl caliber players. Alphonso Boone has stepped up at tackle where we were horrible before this year. Donnie Edwards back as QB of the defense has been a big help, and frees Derrick Johnson to fly around and make plays. I see DJ making the pro bowl this year. Our safeties (who I doubt if Peter King could even name) are young and have a lot of potential.

Our offense is still something of a basketcase, no question. But Bowe looks like he may be the real deal, which could help open things up for LJ, which could get us into something like our midseason form last year. It's a huge IF. But you can't say there is no hope whatsoever. McIntosh has been fine at left tackle. Turley's run blocking is our biggest disaster on offense right now. Next to Huard's indecison/lack of accuracy/general suckiness. When he's running good though, he can be decent.

Which leaves of course... Herm/Solari's play calling. But that has to be fixable right? Maybe? I liked what we did in the 2nd half of this game. If teams are going to keep stacking up on LJ, we have to throw the ball down the field to Gonzalez and Bowe. The Chiefs just need to banish the Kris Wilson 1 yrd swing pass, and anything with a reverse in it, from their playbooks forever.

We shall see what happens. I just wanted to plant my flag now that we won't totally suck. Possibly we could even make a shot at the playoffs with a little luck. We have 6 of 8 at home after SD next week. Chiefs are always tough at home. And one of the road games is Oakland - no gimme but winnable and the Chiefs have owned the Raiders since the 80s. Put a few wins together and get some momentum like last year, who knows. No one in our division looks that good right now. God I love seeing the Broncos lose painfully.

I already have a bet in at over/under 7.5 wins (from before the season) or I might put some money on that. But I'd probably want some odds at this point.

Oh yeah, great analysis and thorough refutation of my points btw. I see you read and regurgitate the teachings of Bill Simmons as well. Man is a visionary.

1. Just making a comment. Not interested in, or trying to debate it.

suzzer:

Here's some reasons. The quarterback. The offensive line. The wide receivers. The defense. They're just not a very good team. They're not going to win 7 games.

Yes our defense is terrible. http://www.nfl.com/stats/team 4th in the league in total yardage. They've allowed six 2nd half points all season - w/o their best player for 2 games. Simply horrible. You guys are really doing your research and not just parroting stuff you read.

Receivers: Kinneson went down with a hamstring, but he'll be back. He had a great year last year which no one knows about because he doesn't play in the NFC East - bastion of all media coverage. If he played for the Giants we'd have a five minute update on his hamstring injury every day on Sportscenter. Bowe looked awesome today. All the Chiefs announcers and coaches were buzzing about him after the game.

QB and O-line have issues. I have granted that. Teams can go 8-8 with a shaky QB, patchy O-line, great running back and TE, okay receivers, and really good defense.

Things looked a lot bleaker last year when Green went down and we went 0-2. We finished 9-7. We have a better team this year. I've basically run down position by position.

We're better or the same at every spot except right guard. They moved Waters - a multi pro-bowler - to Will Shields spot. Our center is a pro-bowl candidate and Welbourn and McIntosh are ok. It's really only Turley that sucks, and really only at run blocking.

Green was horrible last year, almost all year. Huard had the 2nd highest QB ranking in the league for the 8 or 9 games he played. No one can say they know it's impossible he can somewhat back into that form. I'll take Huard over Grossman any day I'll say that. Chiefs made the playoffs almost every year in the 90s with all kinds of ridiculous journeyman QBs. They went 13-3 with Grbac one year and Bono another for god's sake.

Yeah they chump it up in the playoffs. Which they probably will again if they make it there. Again, just saying they don't suck. If they go 8-8 all you asshats better come back here and apologize for spouting off on subjects whence you know not.
