I didn’t think the defense would be this far behind. Did you? I have to say I’m a little bit frustrated as a Chiefs fan having to watch the defense continually give up big plays to the opposing team in critical situations. I was positive going into this year that the offense would struggle scoring points-and they have-but I thought the defense would have the ability to keep the Chiefs in some games. So far, the defense is not doing well at all!
Tyler Thigpen didn’t look too awful during the last drive of the first half and the whole second half. Was he Peyton Manning? No, please don’t get me wrong, but it appears that he “grew” a little. I wonder if the Chiefs had won the past two games, even by 1 point in each, would the job be Brodie’s when he get’s healthy? I don’t know the answer and I never really thought I would actually type this, but I really can’t wait for Brodie Croyle to get back.
Pat Thomas is worthless. I said I was going to state the obvious and this might be the most obvious of all. He continues to take bad angles and miss tackles way too much for mine or anybody else’s liking. Maybe the Chiefs need to do something there. Also, DJ has been pretty quiet these first three weeks. I predicted he would be voted to his first pro bowl this year, the season is still relatively young but with each passing game with him not showing up lessens the chance of that happening.
Larry Johnson finally got off the schneid a little bit today, unfortunately it was too little too late. If only the Chiefs could have got the running game on track a little sooner.
Ok, for all of those Chiefs fans still holding out hope that they can turn it around and still have a productive season you need to forget about it. I’m sorry, no one is as hurt as yours truly. After three weeks, this is the worst Chiefs team I have ever seen. I know, it’s a bold statement, but all together, this team is the worst my eyes have been subjected to. Can they improve? Absolutely, but so far, they’ve shown no signs of righting the ship.
Watch this be the year be the year when there is no clear cut number one player available for this year’s draft. I wouldn’t be surprised. I think the Chiefs might want to look at middle linebacker when their time is up, whether it be at number one or not. James Laurinaitis out of Ohio State or Rey Maualuga form Southern Cal, the Chiefs need to be strong up the middle, they drafted Dorsey this year, Page and Pollard appear to have improved, now the Chiefs need a Brian Urlacher-type presense in the middle.
