Morning Addicts. Today we’ll start to move away from the Colts game and turn our attention to the Texans. Had a great time debating and talking Chiefs with everyone yesterday. Thanks for keeping the discussion on the topic and avoiding personal attacks. I am sure we will have plenty more to talk about as the season goes on.
Until then, here is your Morning Fix.
For the third time in four games this season, QB Matt Cassel was held below 200 yards in Sunday’s 19-9 loss to the Colts, completing 16-of-29 passes for 156 yards. With the defense keeping Kansas City in the contest for nearly all 60 minutes, Cassel and Co. were only able convert one third down in 10 chances and made just two trips into the red zone, which resulted in three points.
There are defenses to be made for Matt Cassel, lines of logic that start with his receivers failing to get open and continue throughout the rest of the league, where, outside of maybe eight or 10 teams, EVERYBODY wants a better quarterback.
Their defense is much improved, but Kansas City needs to figure out more ways to move the football offensively. It won’t be easy unless receiver Dwayne Bowe starts hanging on to the football. Bowe’s drop in the end zone during Sunday’s 19-9 loss to the Indianapolis Colts cost KC the game, in my opinion. As I was watching that game, I said to friends that the first team to score a touchdown would win the game. Bowe’s drop cost the Chiefs what would have been the game’s first TD.
