Underestimating their D# and overestimating their O#.   I don't expect this to be a high-scoring affair, actually.   Both teams have a huge amounts of respect for each other, and I think this game will reflect this.

 I tried to submit this as a poll but there’s a glitch somewhere that is keeping me from doing so.

 

  Maybe it’s better as a discussion. What is your biggest concern ?

 

Frank Reich being out-coached

The secondary 

Luck’s decision making 

Oline protection

Not getting pressure  on Mahommes 

A “lull” in the offense

My concern is that we cant cover Travis Kelce..nobody has....

Too big for out CBs and safeties and we cant take a linebacker out of the run 'D' to 'spy' Kelce..

 

My concern is also that TY Hilton wont be able to finish the game.

This will be a high-scoring game...all KC games are...

We need TY in the 4th Q

Watkins return.

Overestimating our defense.  The Colts have faced the worst offenses in the NFL. (32nd).

I'm concerned about the mental health of those in KC after they lose.

1.) Colts defense can’t pressure Mahomes. Mahomes does Mahomes things escaping the blitz were likely going to bring ala Watson. 

2.) KC Offensive weapons too much for Colts defense. Kelce has a career day. 

3.) Chiefs DL pressure Luck all day. Colts offense can’t find rhythm. 

 

If we limit Mahomes under 300 yards passing and sack him more than once, I think we win the game.

Being blown out... We we're expecting to make it here. And I would just like a close game. I don't expect to win. But if we get blown out everyone will be crying "overated"..

I think we have a good chance,

I wanted to play Houston and, given a choice of KC or New England, I wanted to play KC.

Obviously, you are right that KC average 35 points a game and could blow us out.

But if things go wrong for Mahomes, we could blow them out, too.

 

So much of this is Mahomes...making his first NFL playoff start in a snowstorm

Last weekend worked out perfectly! We won and DIDNT send Houston to Gillette. And yes I think KC was better for us than New England (only for demon purposes) 

 

I'm just hyped to see how this game will play out!! Hey I'm trying to be optimistic if we do lose.. at least the AFCCG will be in a different venue for once.. :dunno:

I never bought in to the argument "but they did not play any team with a winning record" angle. What is a team supposed to do? Lose? Compare it to a boxer. They fight the fighter put in the ring with them. It does not take away from the talent of the fighter in question. Granted, the proof is in the opponent but you have to play the teams on the schedule and beating them is what good teams do.

    • You see how that's a conflation of two separate issues? (With a sprinkling of a third issue, tbh.)   1) Team A picking at #15 might have a problem with Hockenson, maybe their evaluation of his talent or character or whatever. Maybe they have a second round grade on him. Team B picking at #26 might have Hockenson as a top ten player on their board. And maybe a handful of other teams between those two have higher grades on different players that align with their needs, or maybe they aren't disciplined in their approach or have different draft philosophies. Maybe some of those teams don't see positional value in TEs, so they pass on Hockenson, leaving him available at #26. Again, the point is that not every team has the same board, and there are many reasons why that might be the case.   2) You're adding in the quality of the evaluation. Team B might think more highly of the player than anyone else, and maybe they're right and he turns out to be a stud. Maybe they're wrong, and he's a dud. But that's a question of player evaluation, not draft strategy.   3) Gronk was a second rounder himself. And he's turning out to be one of the best TEs in NFL history. Anyone saying 'Hockenson is the next Gronk' isn't being an honest evaluator, and I don't want my GM drafting players because he's convinced they'll be the next HOF player at any position. The odds stacked heavily against that. (I said the same last year to everyone claiming Barkley was a guaranteed HOFer who would singlehandedly elevate any offense to the top of the league.) That's a way to rationalize drafting a player you're in love with. It's not a disciplined draft strategy.
    • Agreed. My over arching point to BPA vs needs discussion is that the terms themselves can have different meanings, so the various good points made can get lost in the wash.   But I do think the preponderance of thinking lists BPA agnostic of attributes for a given scheme, which is how the national websites tend to do it.  So when GMs pick the 45th ranked player with pick 33, many criticize the pick as "reaching" for a need because they they don't stop to think that 5 or 6 players ranked in between weren't even considered a good fit for the team to begin with.   
    • Him and Lewis will elevate that draft class even higher. 
    • You're putting your own "spin" on this.  It has everything to do with what Ballard chose to do.   Ballard could have prevented his players from hitting free agency at all by overpaying them in the first place.   He doesn't want to overpay, so he "allows" them to hit free agency, find out that no team will overpay, then "brings" them back at their true value.
    • Yes I know, I wasn't going to list all possibilities.  I just listed one possibility to illustrate there is more to it than one person "letting" him test the market then "bringing" him back.     My point was about the tone of the comment coupled with the lack of substance supporting the tone of the comment.   But I see throughout the thread that typical sensitivities about broader things have surfaced so y'all carry on.
