Seahawks Drop the Chiefs as KC Offense Sputters

Chiefs lose, 14 to 10.

We'll probably remember tonight's Chiefs/Seahawks game as the night QB Tyler Thigpen lost his roster spot. Thigpen looked inept, going 8/15 for 56 yards in first half and second half relief of Matt Cassel.

Matt Gutierrez sealed Thigpen's fate when he came in during the third quarter. Gutierrez ended up passing 10/13 for 113 yards. He did throw two interceptions while under pressure.

Speaking of pressure, tonight was another example of how unstable this Chiefs' offensive line is. The Chiefs gave up four sacks to the Seahawks.

Joel will have a more detailed post later tonight or tomorrow. The good, the bad and the ugly are after the jump.

The Good

  • Matt Cassel's injury will reportedly will not keep him out of next week's game.
  • Jamaal Charles rushed seven times for 54 yards, with a great 31-yard run.
  • Matt Gutierrez looked sharp as the Chiefs' backup
  • Dwayne Bowe made some great plays in limited action (again)

The Bad

  • The Chiefs had three fumbles, all recovered by themselves.
  • Seahawks QBs Matt Hasselback and Seneca Wallace picked apart the Chiefs linebackers and secondary for nearly 300 yards passing.
  • This offensive line has major problems. Matt Cassel honestly may not make it that far in the season if they don't shape up.

The Ugly

  • Tyler Thigpen looked like the Thigpen we saw in his first couple of games. Erratic, quick to run and inaccurate.
  • The Chiefs were 1/10 on 3rd down conversions. That's atrocious.
  • Not having competition for Ryan Succop may have had negative effects. We thought Succop was a lock to be the steady kicker we've needed but he missed two field goals tonight, one from only 28-yards out.
  • Matt Cassel (leg), Brandon Flowers (shoulder) and Devard Darling (knee) all left the game with injuries.

Chime in with your thoughts on the Chiefs' performance tonight. Make sure you vote in the poll too.
