Chiefs predictions


Recommended Posts

If we can run the football... IF. We will shock people by keeping Mahomes on the sideline much like the Jags did to Peyton Manning all those years. Not to say we will win, but we can limit them to 28-31 points in my opinion... We need some guys to step up on defense, maybe that's Leonard coming back and providing a spark. A turnover or two is possible. 

 

If we can keep them within 30 points, that gives us a fighting chance. 

 

I say 35-24 Chiefs. We will look much better than today, but can't matchup without TY and 5 rookies playing significant time on defense.

The reason we couldn’t run the football today was WR were dropping passes and we couldn’t win with the pass game. It made it very easy to stop the run. The oline wasn’t very good either.

That literally has to be the gameplan, keep away football that ends in 7's. FG's won't help us.

Agreed. They would have helped today though. Fumble by Campbell in the redzone. Missed (barely) 57 yarder. We would have been looking a game winner on the pick 6 drive, which might have changed the way we went about things.

Oh man it’s a Primetime game?? I’m even more worried now sheesh 

Haha..

 

Yeah the last few years primetime games haven't been pretty... And it's usually on the road...

 

Let's just hope it isn't one of those embarrassing games where they're talking about good BBQ in KC and how much they love Tom Brady in the middle of the third quarter.

I'd like to point out how close I was to nailing the opening spread. Chiefs opened as 10 point favorites, down to 9.5 currently and the over/under is 56.5 

 

I should work in Vegas...

Right on. The Chiefs are one of the worst teams in the league at stopping the run. When you think about them also having the best offense which means playing with the lead a lot and they STILL give up that much on the ground. Their front 7 is a liability and can be exploited but it takes discipline to the run regardless of the score. 

 

Mack gets 25 carries and we play action pass all day - this could be a game. Colts win 27-24.

Mack gets 10 carries and we try more long slow developing routes - this will be a route. Chiefs win 42-17.

I hope you're smart enough to start him regardless

I started him all games last year and he was one of my keepers. He didn’t have any touchdowns yesterday :(. I had 2 offensive touchdowns for the whole team and lost by 2. New England defense had more points than Mahomes

 Yeah maybe it doesn't work sometimes but it's suuuuper risky to bench Mahomes. And to be fair,  in my league at least the Patriots D scored 36 points. I lost because of that

You shouldn't sit him because of the wild guess that he'll have a rare 0 TD game. JMO

Bad loss to the lowly Raiders.  These injury depleted Colts will likely get their lunch taken next week in Kansas City.  Could get real ugly.  Mahomes will laugh at our cover 2 zone coverage all day.  We are looking dead at 2-3 entering the bye week with an important tough divisional game with Houston next. 

i think you may be right

    • The question might be better framed around "confidence".   If I had to rank my 2022 confidence from lowest to....   1. MIKE - performed mediocre in 2020, will be taking a bigger role in 2021 2. LT - nobody under contract in 22, coming back from injury, 30 years old 3. CB1 - nobody under contract in 22, 31 years old, CB2 struggled in 2020 so him taking over CB1 is questionable.  4. WR1 - aged and has history of health issues. Heir apparent candidates are rook X (Xs are not frequently WR1s), and the primary candidate for replacement has been injured every year. 5. FS - rook that struggled mightily in coverage after teams got film 6. DE - Turay is an injury vs flash guy at this point, Dayo is a injured rook projection, and Lewis is stepping into a starting role as a tweener. 7. QB - we're pretty much committed for 2 years, so probably doesn't matter for 22   This all assumes we re-sign WILL, RT, and LG to extensions. LG already has 5th year exercised.   
    • lol. you said it was your last post... feel free to post again and I will not reply, so you can "win". I was only hoping you'd address the question/point that you're still avoiding.   Point is, you have not addressed the question specifically about the last 5 years. I guess the Bengals have bucked their history lol. It's not a theory, it's just data. Like I said, I like Irsay, but we simply haven't spent the last 5 years. And like I previously said, GMs don't complain about their budgets publicly. And there's just not a great way to explain 2 straight years of not spending 40+M. You don't have to spend it all, you don't have to sign long term deals.... But that's a lot of money to not spend.
    • No I am not I am looking at a history of a guy who has owned this team for a longer period of four or five years you only want to look at because it supports yours theory but even then it only works if you ignore what the GM has said about not spending money and that he’s about to spend very big money to do what he said he was going to do all along.  Again if you think Jim Irsay is a cheap owner you don’t know what a cheap owner is but think what you want.     any I am sure you will want the last word as you always do have a nice night.
    • And that's fine. We can revisit this at the end of the year. All I'm doing is giving my thoughts on the matter before it becomes evident.
