Denver Vs KC & KC's only chance is

19 posts in this topic

Despite their epic collection of troubles, the Chiefs still have the No. 4 rushing attack in the NFL,

averaging 145.4 yards per game.

They are also fourth in the league in rushing attempts at 31.9 per game.

Now this isn't just a poke-the-optimism-balloon item. This is a trend the Broncos have lived against the Chiefs. The last five times the Chiefs have defeated the Broncos over the last six seasons,

Kansas City has rushed for 106, 185, 317, 213 and 223 yards.

As for the notion those games were all constructed by a talented Chiefs roster fighting for a postseason spot, just circle "false" there.

The 317-yard effort, with 259 coming from Jamaal Charles, was the 2009 season finale for a 4-12 Chiefs team. The 213-yard effort was one of two victories for a 2-14 Chiefs team in '08.

Of course, trends are made to be broken these days for the Broncos with Peyton Manning behind center. But the Chiefs have gummed up the works at least some on several opposing passers this season.

They don't get many sacks, haven't had many interceptions and certainly haven't won because of it, but they have made it difficult at times for passers to find the rhythm those quarterbacks would like to have.

So, a fast start is Job One for the Broncos: get the lead and take the running game off the table for the Chiefs and crank up the crabby meter in the Chiefs home crowd. Because history has shown: If the Broncos let the Chiefs slug it out, a bad Chiefs team can use the run game to beat a Broncos team that thinks it is a good one.

Romeo Crennel, I have seen it way too many times. He will make it a FG game. He will double both outside WRs and sometimes drop back his LBs to double Stokley too forcing the McGahee less Broncos to run on them, as simple as that.

The same thing he did vs Aaron Rodgers last year, the same thing he did vs Peyton in Indy in 2010 with Mike Hart scoring the lone TD in a 19-13 game (if I remember right at home vs the Chiefs), the same thing he did vs Peyton as DC of the Patriots.

Peyton has seen it far too much to not be ready now. The only way the Chiefs can put pressure on Peyton is by scoring 20 points. Otherwise, Peyton will not force things, be glad to take FGs and get the 1 or 2 TDs when he can and come out with a win.

Ronnie Hillman is key to this entire game. If they get Hillman going, the Chiefs do not have enough firepower on offense to keep up against the Denver D and will have to overplay the run thus giving Peyton ample opportunities to throw on them. The Chiefs' offense is putrid and they cant figure out if Cassel or Quinn is the answer, I think neither is.

If Peyton has to score 3 FGs and 2 TDs for a 23-10 win, he would gladly do so.

Broncos to see a familiar face Sunday at K.C. in former QB Brady Quinn is starter

Overall, however, Quinn steps into a difficult spot as the Chiefs could be missing three starters in the offensive line Sunday against a Broncos defense that leads the league in sacks.

In two previous starts to go with some spot duty, Quinn has completed 35-of-58 passes (60.9 percent) for 308 yards to go with three interceptions.

He has not thrown a touchdown pass this season and also tried to play with a concussion earlier this year, in a Week 8 loss to Oakland.

((( ATTACK HIM )))

In other news, Broncos cornerback Omar Bolden (concussion vs. Chargers) did some stretching but was without a helmet and did not participate in drills.

Defensive end Derek Wolfe (thigh vs. Chargers) appeared to practice on a limited basis during the early portion of practice that was open to the media.

Peyton Manning says Broncos can overcome McGahee's absence

Peyton Manning said the Broncos will undoubtedly miss injured running back Willis McGahee, but said he believes others can do a good job filling the void.

"Knowshon (Moreno) and Lance (Ball) and Ronnie (Hillman), and (they) all have to step up,

and everybody else has to step their game up too, when you're missing one of your top players. And those guys will step up and do a good job."

The 7-3 Broncos , who play at Kansas City this weekend, will practice Thanksgiving morning.

"I think it's important that a good football team can still have a good practice in a holiday situation," Manning said. "And we can still realize what a special day it is, with family and friends, and be thankful for our blessings. We have a lot to be thankful for."

Manning said nobody should take the Chiefs lightly, despite their poor season.

"They're good defensively. They can put a lot of pressure on the quarterback and it's always tough playing at Arrowhead," Manning said

I know this is the company line. I heard it from McCoy, Elway and Fox. But...it's nice to hear from Peyton's mouth. A Denver CBS sports guy tweeted that one Broncos exec he talked to said they were not worried at all... Alright then!

It's 9 weeks or fewer. We have some time/schedule to run some experiment. I'm sure they are covering all their bases.

KC DEPTH CHART

http://www.kcchiefs....epth-chart.html

Tracy Porter cleared to play:

that doesn’t mean he will. It just means the seizure symptoms that held him back in recent weeks are no longer stopping him.

“I finally made the plane,” Porter said. “Now, we’ll see if I make the field.”

But with the way defensive backs Chris Harris and Tony Carter have been playing since Porter went down six weeks, don’t be surprised if Porter is among the game-day inactives.

Heading Into a Hostile Environment

the Broncos are 15-33 in Kansas City since the Chiefs moved to the city in 1963.

“Any time you go into Arrowhead (Stadium), it’s a tough place to play,” Elway said. “I know the Chiefs are struggling this year, but as we know, everybody in the NFL can beat anybody on any given day. Peyton has the right attitude. The fact is, it doesn’t matter what their record is. They can get hot at any point in time. So hopefully we can go in there and take control of the football game early and keep the crowd out of it, because it’s probably as loud a stadium as there is in the league when it’s going.”

Broncos Expect Chiefs' Best Shot

]For the fifth consecutive week, the Broncos are set to face a team with a sub-.500 record. But the mantra remains the same -- look at the tape, not the standings.

That holds especially true when the opponent is a division rival like the Kansas City Chiefs

"What I do know is it’s a rivalry game, you can throw those records right out the window, it doesn’t matter," defensive tackle Justin Bannan said. "These guys are going to be ready to play and we’re going into Kansas City. It’s always a tough environment for the Broncos to play in, so we have to be ready to go.”

The Broncos haven't taken any of its previous four opponents lightly, so cornerback Champ Bailey didn't buy any notion of a potential "trap game" against the 1-9 Chiefs.

“First and foremost, they’re an AFC West opponent, so it’s a little heightened sense of urgency from both sides," Bailey said. "I think we definitely can’t go in there with our eyes closed and think we’re going to come out with a win. This is a hungry football team with a lot of talented players. They’ve got a lot of pride so we expect their best shot.”

Having played on losing teams in the past -- Bannan with St. Louis and Adams with Cleveland -- both players brought up how much pride there is in an NFL locker room, regardless of record. Adams said he expects the Broncos to face a team filled with players working as hard as they can on the field this Sunday.

Tight end Jacob Tamme pointed out that the Chiefs have "five guys on their defense that could be Pro Bowlers." Safety Rahim Moore noted that with running back Jamaal Charles in the backfield, Kansas City "will run on you all day."

Quarterback Peyton Manning pointed out the amount of pressure the Kansas City defense -- which ranks ninth in the league against the pass -- has put on signal callers all season.

In other words, the Broncos won't take their latest challenge lightly.

"They’ve got five first-rounders on defense, sprinkled all through the depth chart there," Head Coach John Fox said. "Offensively, they’ve got the fourth-leading rusher in the AFC and the tenth-leading receiver.

Our guys look at the tape and they understand (it’s a) division game on the road – this is a very capable football team.”

    • Offensive Line-Why is it so hard & my belief we have turned the corner
      Mods, you may want to move this to the NFL topics, but I felt the Colts OL line play has been such a point of contention on this board that the article was a very good piece to use when we look at the Colts OL play, how we judge them and what the future holds.   The article "In the line of Fire" just came out on CBS. I have long been one the many who have bemoaned the OL of the Colts. What really made me the angry was how certain positions were seen as we can fill them with late rounders. The center position for me has been my point of contention for three years. I just did not understand why we would not get a good center. I wanted us to go after Mack two years ago. When this draft came around, I and a couple others were vociferous in our support of taking Kelly. He was a plug and play from day one, who several talent evaluators felt was a pro bowler waiting to happen. This is what Mayock, who I like the most as a talent evaluator had to say about Kelly: "He is scheme diverse, and can play zone or man. He can play all three interior offensive line positions. He's as good a center prospect as I've seen in years. I think he will be a Pro Bowler."   Still, most posters to my surprise felt it was a reach to take Kelly at #18, and I understood due to many wanting a pass rusher, which is a desperate need, but I just did not agree with the thought. I cheered, jumped up and down when Goodell came to the podium and announced his name. Clark in the third, was just icing on the cake. In the last several years, when a Center is drafted in the first round, that player has gone on to be a Pro Bowler. I believe Pittsburgh selecting Pouncey was huge for their team. He has had injuries, but when healthy, he is the glue and the leader of the line. The OL needs someone to hold it together, and I believe Kelly will be this type of player, who is respected and will be a leader. The major problem for our pass rush was guys up the middle. No More!!!   So why am I posting this article. Well it is an interview of several lineman and the general atmosphere towards the OL. I have never heard so many people talking about so many teams and saying how bad their OL was.   I have said for years one of the largest problems with lineman was they are coming out of the spread, which does not teach basics for blocking, and the coaching they receive when they get to the NFL is not looked at as an important point of emphasis. How many times do you hear someone ask, who is your OL coach?  I believe the draft of Kelly, pro system, and having Philbin as the OL coach were two major points in this off season which could lead to a special OL in time.   Many of the things these lineman say point to the same thing, and reinforce my thoughts, that we may have turned the corner if things go our way, and coaching takes over and the talent listens. It is an interesting read.   One more thing, anyone who uses PFF and its analytics to judge players in general, yes it has some good uses, but is the end all? Just read what OL players said about it. They make some very interesting observations. Hard to grade players if you don't know the assignments on each play. Just a good read, and hopefully you will come with the same conclusion about the future of our OL.   http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/feature/25577288/in-the-line-of-fire
    • Cuts..
      I think we sign another veteran running back. Now that the draft is over there will be more cuts to come...add the fact that teams will have to get down to 53 by week 1...there will be a surplus of cheap veteran running backs on the market. I'm fairly confident we scoop one up. A lot of teams will let go of some quality veterans now that they have their replacements from the draft on their roster and when those guys clear waivers I believe we will fill in a few wholes left on the roster. Running back will be one that shouldn't be hard to find some additional help.
    • The New AFC South
      I always associated that line with John Harbaugh not Chuck Pagano. Pags was the DC for Baltimore so I will let it slide SD.  5 thumbs up for making me burst out laughing S-ME. 
    • Cuts..
      Those would both be very surprising.  I'd say experience would give them the edge over any rookies that perform equally.     Like me you said, if they stink it up in camp, or more likely, have nagging injuries, I could see them getting beat out.
