I looked up some prognistications from pre-season about the Chiefs and the opponents we have played. The Kansas City Chiefs are getting a lot of Mass Media doubts based on the performance of our opponents, rather than the quality of our game plans and the execution/adjustments made to get the wins.
The Dallas Cowboys are a prime example sitting 1-2 and because of the Talent on the team they are a Top 10 playoff-caliber football team. The coaching and on-field performance should speak for itself. Well my memory failed me so I looked it up:
They lost to the Minnesota Vikings in the divisional round of the playoffs, 34–3
Oh well, I guess that explains a lot of the Media reasoning. You have to be somebody before you can be somebody:) The Kansas City Chiefs are a Question Mark, even to the Coaches that coach them, and the fans that follow them. Some more Wins and a loss or two will answer many Questions about what the 2010 Chiefs Are.
Kansas City Chiefs (7-9)
If foundations are built on lines, examining the Kansas City’s’ offensive line goes a long way in explaining how the team so often finds itself picking at the top of the draft.
It may be too soon for the Chiefs to take advantage of, but if some of their underachieving young players can develop, anything is possible. Still, we don’t think they’re quite ready yet, and getting close to .500 represents good progress.
San Diego Chargers (10-6)
This team may be even more reliant on Rivers this year given the potential losses of Jackson and Marcus McNeil. So can the defense possibly step up and shoulder some of that load? It certainly doesn’t look likely, but in a division that is as low on talent as any, the Chargers should have enough for a divisional crown. The playoffs? Could be a very different story.
Cleveland Browns (6-10)
So while you look at the defense and see a unit that has some real talent (alongside some impressive depth), you look at an offense and wonder just how they are doing to score.
San Francisco 49ers (10-6)
The big worry for aspirations beyond the playoffs is that of their seven wins, five came in their own division. With their other victories coming against Jacksonville and Chicago, it’s not the most impressive list of conquests.
So if San Francisco is going to progress, it must start doing better against the big teams. But are the 49ers capable of that?
The Good News
2. You can‘t run straight down these guys’ throats.
3-0 is sweet
