Just wanted to give some appreciation to Antoine Bethea. Not only did he have a good overall game. The hustle he showed to stop Bowe when he looked as though he was going to score that TD in the first quarter ended up being a huge play. The defense held KC to 3 instead which obviously we needed at the end to win 45-44.

I know everything had to happen just right for us to pull off the win. The Bethea run down and defensive goal line stance ended up being really big.

Just...I mean, okay.  Props to Bethea for running Bowe down. Yes, that was good.  However, it was the ONLY thing he did well all day.  He was also single-handedly responsible for 2 TD's of the Chiefs.

 

He jumped on the short route and completely sold Toler out on the Avery long TD.  He also bit on the Alex Smith scramble, allowing David to be wide open for a 2nd TD.  Bethea, overall, played terribly. 

 

I'm not being negative.  That was a GREAT turnaround by the team, and I'm ecstatic that we won, but the W doesn't magically erase all the things we did terribly wrong on Saturday.

Thats not true they were bringing him down in the box a lot to help with the run. Both Bethea and Landrey played OK the Toler pass was not Bethea's fault that was 1 on 1 coverage by Toler & he shouldn't have even been out there he was obviously hurt!!

Great effort, Antoine. Mistakes will be made, they just will. I am sure that Andy Reid did a good job of adding wrinkles and play designs that we hadn't prepared for like the one incompletion that had the RB split out wide right and confused our secondary. Those dang 1 WR crossing screens were good play designs as well so I don't fault the mistakes to just the players. We have to be put in a position to make the play, and understand where the responsibility lies. I am sure that Bethea will be ready for BB this week as it's not his first rodeo against the *s.

He was GARBAGE Yesterday. Many others deserving of praise and he is not 1 of them.

So by that statement I guess you have nothing but dirt to throw on Luck since he got credit for 3 picks (even though I blame TY for the one in the...3rd qtr?). Heck, Luck should be benched for that garbage.

Look, the OP is just giving someone props for a specific play, not the whole game. When said in that perspective I agree with him 100 percent. That was a pure hustle play that saved us 4 points.

They had Bethea playing to stop the run most of the game. Pagano said his job was to primarily help shut down Charles and then obviously Davis.

He made up a lot of ground in the box to make a play that saved us 4 pts. Those 4 points were crucial in the end.

Like I said a lot of things had to happen including that early TD saving tackle by Antoine.

We come up on the short end even after Lucks performance without that stop and defensive stand of course.

Loved when he showed that effort and detirmination to stop the TD and we ended up only giving up 3. Yea we gave up a lot of points but with the turnovers the Chiefs had a lot of short field to work with. Also Toler was no where near game ready, if he's not in Avery doesn't likely blow by anyone for his TD.

 

The little shovels and QB keepers were killing us, I was waiting for us to have someone hook zone the middle or just QB spy already. Can't deny though the D stepped up in the second half minus the one TD that again was short field thanks to the interception.
