It’s game day, Addicts. We’ll have a ton of coverage for you throughout the morning and of course, after the game as the Chiefs look for their fifth win of the season today against the Denver Broncos.
Be sure to join us after the game for our live Chiefs Post Game Show on AA Radio. Big Matt and I will be breaking down all the day’s action and we’ll also be taking calls and questions from listeners, should there be any. Think of it like this, if you don’t call in to give us your thoughts on the game, we may not have enough to say to fill the time in which case I’ll make Big Matt tell you the story of his first kiss.
Trust me, you don’t want to hear it.
During the game, be sure to join us right here on the Arrowhead Addict main page for our Live Game Thread. Join AA readers and staff as we comment and chat live about the game as it’s happening.
AA is your home for everything Chiefs. On game day and beyond. We’ll see you later today. Until then, here is your Morning Fix!
When the Chiefs passLast December the Broncos held Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel to 196 yards passing in large part because Champ Bailey held Dwayne Bowe without a reception in the game. Bailey figures to see plenty of Bowe in this one, and with tight end Tony Moeaki on injured reserve, Cassel’s options are limited. But the Broncos will have to find a way to keep the ball away from wide receiver Steve Breaston as well. Bowe and Breaston are the only Chiefs players with more than 110 yards receiving this season — Bowe leads the team 646 yards while Breaston has 450
Offensively, the Chiefs entered last Sunday’s game against Miami as one of the NFL’s least-sacked teams. Kansas City still ranks in the lower half of the league in sacks allowed, but couldn’t handle the Dolphins’ blitz packages and allowed QB Matt Cassel to be sacked five times. Cassel was hurried another nine times.Denver certainly has pass rush power with rookie Von Miller and Pro Bowler Elvis Dumervil coming off the edge.
Who can protect the quarterback with more efficiency?
Statements like that have come to define Tebow, the Denver Broncos’ 24-year-old quarterback. He is 2-1 as a starter in the NFL, and he won a Heisman Trophy and was part of two national championship teams while at the University of Florida. Tebow might be the best college football player ever, to say nothing of his work with underprivileged children and the way he inspires others to live well, be good to others, and follow Christianity.But this isn’t about him. It’s about us.
“He’s going to have his fall one of these days,” says James Franklin, 25, a bouncer at the Brooksider.
“I’m not making excuses for the guys, but we probably did try to do too much during the week, which they just weren’t physically capable of handling it,” Haley said in his press conference. “I don’t want to take anything away from Miami and how they were prepared and played the game throughout.”Kansas City scored just three points for the second time this season, the last time coming in a Week 2 loss at Detroit, and played poorly versus the Dolphins after a taxing Monday night overtime win over San Diego. The Chiefs had eight interceptions in their previous two games but did not post any last week.
