Chiefs vs. Falcons Live Game Thread


The Kansas City Chiefs are about to kick things off against Tony Gonzalez and the Atlanta Falcons. This is a huge, huge game for Romeo Crennel and the Chiefs. If the boys in red can somehow come out on top, they will put the rest of the NFL on notice.

A win will set the tone for the entire season A loss…well, let’s not talk about that.

As always, what’s everyone drinking (or grilling) this fine Sunday? I rolled with Stella today.

    At least he took the Chiefs to win.. haha

    • Talicore

      First pick too

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    gonna be a tough game with Flowers and Lewis out. We better ground and pound to keep the ball away from Ryan.

  • Talicore

    Riggle should be good this year on Fox, lol

  • steve james

    I have to work:( I won’t get to watch it until Friday night.

  • ladner morse

    “Way to go Cassel — great pass”
    Sorry — just practicing!

  • Talicore

    Killer B’s get the house rocking today?

  • RepOurChiefs

    Its going down..finally

  • ChiefsFan7

  • Talicore

    Damn Succop…deep one there. Kick it that straight when we need you too please

  • gjrchief

  • ChiefsFan7

    Ugh

  • Talicore

    Come on D

  • ChiefsFan7

    Nice on Berry

  • Chiefswatch

    they can complete any pass they want all game

  • Talicore

    rush isn’t getting there fast enough

  • ladner morse

    hold!

  • ChiefsFan7

    damnit

  • ladner morse

    Could see that coming a mile away

  • sidibe

    we’re in trouble. Oh Carr, where have you gone?

    • tm1946

      You miss all the guys who said “not worth the money – Routt is good enought”

  • tm1946

    Easy td, how far are DB supposed to back off in a zone?

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    They need to double whoever Reeves is covering. He can’t ever be left along with those guys.

  • Chiefswatch

    We are fucked. That was simply easy. Way to go Chiefs! Way to hang on to all the cash and shore up our secondary! FUCK

  • ladner morse

    Need to stick Routt permanently on Julio Jones.

    • tm1946

      I do not believe the Crennel planned defense has one player shadow one receiver.

  • Brandon Grier

    Now let’s answer with a TD of our own

  • Talicore

    Offense gonna have to pull us to a win till the D gets it together

  • tm1946

    We need a nice lonnnnng running attack with td. Keep Atl offense off the field or we are dead.

  • http://twitter.com/Redfield182 Pat Miller

    What’s this? Balance?

  • Talicore

    totally missed a block there

  • Talicore

    nice recovery bowe

  • Brandon Grier

    I can live with a FG for right now, now let’s get that stop on defense

    • tm1946

      Sorry does that not mean you lose by 4???

  • RepOurChiefs

    need a spark

  • Talicore

    not that kind of spark

  • RepOurChiefs

    wth!!!

  • Talicore

    nice hold D

  • http://twitter.com/Redfield182 Pat Miller

    I’ll take it…

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Gotta get a TD and turn the tide. Stupid special teams.

  • tm1946

    9 in the box. so much for the Chiefs can run any time they want.

    • sidibe

      That’s fine. We have enough receivers and good enough O line to make teams pay. Eventually, we’re get our rushing yards.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    I’ll take 10-3 after the first. Need to keep making Atlanta pay for stacking the box.

  • Talicore

    too early for that stuff man

  • Talicore

    Anyone else see cassels passes seem crisper?

    • tm1946

      He is definitely showing up for this game, now if the defense joins him.

  • Talicore

    YEAH BABY!!!!!!

  • ladner morse

    Chills

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Great throw by Cassel. Better catch by Boss!

  • Talicore

    D needs a big stop

  • Miles Yi

    C’mon D! Time for a sack, Houston!

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Chiefs have the confidence the need now after shaky start.

  • Talicore

    Its looking like two or three stops on d could win the game if these offense keep this up.

  • sidibe

    Why am I having flashbacks to the KC-Indy playoff game.

  • Talicore

    thnaks for the miss refs

  • ladner morse

    Illegal pick

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Terrible miss by the refs there.

  • RepOurChiefs

    Hugh miss……

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Real refs would never have missed that call. Isn’t like it was across the field.

  • Chiefswatch

    Atlanta is going to throw up 60

    • tm1946

      I am not a fan of a shootout but if the defense can get their act together, we are still in it.

  • RepOurChiefs

    JC!!!!!!!!!

  • Talicore

    whooo

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    JC is back baby

    • Talicore

      Indeed

    • tm1946

      Block by Winston made it.

  • RepOurChiefs

    DmC!!!..pass protection is there!

  • chiefs28

    I f*cking love McCluster

    • Talicore

      He cause a Mc-Clusterfuck for the D!

  • RepOurChiefs

    Hey guys…i think i know where the WMD’s are now!! Call dub-bush!!!

  • RepOurChiefs

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ladner morse

    C A S S E L

    • Talicore

    • tm1946

      Who would have thunk it?

  • Talicore

    SWEETNESS!!

  • Miles Yi

    DAMN!!!!

  • Miles Yi

    this just in: daboll is good.

  • RepOurChiefs

    Hear the bandwagon tunning up already

  • Chiefswatch

    Wow once Flowers, Tamba, Torbio are back we are goint to be something to see

    • sidibe

      No doubt.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Looks like Zombie Cassel is back.

    • sidibe

      ’bout time. We missed him.

  • brandon

    Man I got chills seeing Cassel that excited!!!

  • Talicore

    Need a stop, score agian before the half. Get the ball at the half too

    • Arrowhead Magic

      Definitely, if we can at least get a FG before the half it will go a long way to winning us this game

  • ladner morse

    Zero pressure

  • Talicore

    D is looking so confused, man

  • Chiefswatch

    No there is zero holds being called Ladner

    • ladner morse

      you’ve got to sell it

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Yeah holding all over that play. Pass rush is pitiful without Tamba.

    • Talicore

      Noticed they just stopped rushing

  • RepOurChiefs

    Tamba wldve had 3 sacks by now

  • RepOurChiefs

    bout time!

    • Talicore

      No Kidding

  • ladner morse

    Finally

  • Miles Yi

    nice!

  • RepOurChiefs

    face mask..these refs suc

  • Talicore

    Hold here guys get it done

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Chiefs going into the locker room losing either way. Time for Romeo to earn his paycheck. They aren’t all scrubs on D. DJ. Berry. Houston. He needs to figure something out.

  • Arrowhead Magic

    my man berry, if you can get us a redzone pick right about now

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Thank God.

  • Talicore

    nice pressure on that one

  • ladner morse

    All the sudden we’re getting pressure!

    • Talicore

      RAC making adjustments

  • Arrowhead Magic

    alright now let’s come back in the scond half and take the lead with a TD

  • Talicore

    Arenas, if there ever was a time for TD…

  • Talicore

    Great half from the offense, poor half from the D. Can RAC make the adjustments?

  • RepOurChiefs

    This game is going to come down to a big stop/turn over

    • Arrowhead Magic

      You know atlanta’s punter is dying to take the field

  • Chase

    Great 1st half. If we can keep it close, the crowd will win it for us in the end.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Come on Romeo!

  • RepOurChiefs

    what good for the goose..and you know the rest

  • RepOurChiefs

    did hillis take a thomas jones pill or somethin? lol

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Damn.

  • Talicore

    Wind wasn’t that bad, look at the flags succup!

  • sidibe

    If we lose this, it’s on ST.

  • Arrowhead Magic

    cmon succop

  • Talicore

    Houston showing up

  • RepOurChiefs

    nice

  • Talicore

    Come on D

  • RepOurChiefs

    ok..the secordary is lookin crazy

  • sidibe

    I feel despair.

  • Talicore

    Cut block, why cant the refs see these things

    • sidibe

      They’re replacements. They’re scared to make a mistake, so they’re letting most everything go. Wouldn’t be surprised if they were TOLD to do that, either.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Terrible. They are going to have a really hard time winning this one.

  • brandong

    at the beginning of preseason everyone thought the d was gonna be unstoppable. who would think it be our offense and our d would look this bad

  • Chiefswatch

    Yea we cant win this

  • matt

    looks like neither team made a defensive adjustment

    • tm1946

      With the guys available, might not have adjustment to make, not sure

      • matt

        well then this is a loss although even with flowers i doubted we would win this game

        • sidibeke

          Disagree. I think if Flowers is in, we win.

    • Talicore

      gotta remember they are at full strength on D too

      • [email protected]

        i was trying to make a point about our defense

  • brandon g

    i hope that missed field goal is not the turning point of the offense and we lose momentum.

    • Chiefswatch

      We cant keep pace, our love our Offense but we dont have White and Jones doing whatever they want at any time

      • brandon g

        do you think with all of our starters on d it would make a difference or do you think they would still run all over us

        • Chiefswatch

          No we would be much better off

  • RepOurChiefs

    both teams look alike….atlanta seems to b getting the lucky bounces

  • Chiefswatch

    and this starts the avalanche

  • Talicore

    that was going forward

  • Chiefswatch

    Might as well just turn it off

  • Talicore

    aww crap

  • RepOurChiefs

    its a wrap..thats the big turn over

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    That’s all she wrote.

  • Justin R Groth

    Well that was fun

  • brandon g

    GAME OVER!!!!!!!!!!!! damni had high hopes

  • Talicore

    Christ, they can’t fall apart like that.

  • Chiefswatch

    i knew we stood no chance with our shit secondary

  • Brandon

    When we get all our defensive starters back we will be fine

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    We needed the big turnover to stay in this game.

    • ladner morse

      and they got it instead

  • kcfaninsdusmc

    i cant believe this

  • Chiefswatch

    We can do nothing to get back in this. The Defense is just too overmatched and as good our offense can be in this passing league it just wont be good enough.

  • kcfaninsdusmc

    it all started with succop

    • Talicore

      Cant miss the 40 yarders

  • ChiefsFan7

    Well this is extremely disappointing given our good 1st half on offense.

  • Nicholas lein

    when a Chief dies he turns into a Falcon

  • Talicore

    Had to be someone open….

  • Chiefswatch

    And our offense has become shit

  • Chiefswatch

    I can only laugh

    • tm1946

      I am just waiting for the “we can fix this”: just wondering who will say it.

  • Talicore

    Come on refs, pass Int

  • kcfaninsdusmc

    we can fix this

    • tm1946

      Thanks I would have thrown something at the tv if Crennel said it

      • kcfaninsdusmc

        well we do have 4/11 of our starting d out like talicore said

        • tm1946

          Ok but look at the distance/separation the DBs are giving receivers, hell even RBs. Those four would have helped but looks like the remaining 7 are doing all that much.

  • Talicore

    4/11 of our starting D gone, man i knew it would be hard but still

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Too many guys missing to take on a SB contender.

      • Talicore

        Im seeing alot of guys that are ok for spot duty during a game in a backup role, but not the whole game.

        • tm1946

          Injuries happen, how much money did Pioli bank from player salaries?

      • sidibeke

        Are they a SB contender? Running game suspect; questions on the o line and they don’t seem to be a top defense. They do have an elite passing game, but…

  • tm1946

    Cannot understand the separation defenders are giving every reciever for Atl.

  • tm1946

    Know you guys like Daboll but we have to be a running team and he got to wrapped up in Cassel’s good passing effort.

  • Talicore

    Cassel limping a bit

  • Chiefswatch

    And that is what makes Cassel an idiot

    • tm1946

      No, he is a manager of the game. He is no Manning or elite QB, if you let him do his job we will look competent. Make him carry the team he just is not capable of doing that.

      • Chiefswatch

        No only a moron would run one way and throw back across the defense. Cassel is shitty at even managing a game. The only thing he can do is complete passes when he has perfect protection and wide open receivers. He was very accurate today which was awesome but as you can see he balances out anything good with shit

        • tm1946

          First you realize it is Cassel as QB for the Chiefs this fing year. Second that one play was him trying to make something happen, wrong, yes, but we are losing 40-17, what do you want him to do, take a knee??

  • Talicore

    Baldwin open with two steps on his man downfield

    • tm1946

      Has he done anything today?

  • tm1946

    Damn it, this is what happens when you put the game on Cassels shoulders, he cannot carry the offense, Daboll better learn this today, He better get his head out of his ass and run the ball, keep the score low. A shootout and the 2012 Chiefs get their butts kicked.

  • http://twitter.com/Redfield182 Pat Miller

    WOW.

  • tm1946

    This could be a long year and we are only into the beginning of the 4th qtr of the first game. Who we going to beat?

  • tm1946

    Stadium is empty, so much for the fans. Game over

  • Ewan the Chiefs Fan

    Well lets give Atlanta props for not running up the score on us, because they really could have.

    • tm1946

      More likely the KC defense has gone from not to good in the preseason to pretty bad, Cassel looked good one half, and (just me) but Daboll is pitiful if he thinks we can win shootout.

    • sidibeke

      Probably Dmitroff throwing Pioli a bone.

  • Jim Harper

    Another tale of two QB’s. First half Cassel looks great as long as it was close. Second half when he had to put the team on his back, he falls apart. It’s going to be a long year fans. Also cannot abide Belcher any more. He’s not even worth having on the field. The other thing that we cannot have is not having Flowers and Hali out. They are too important, and we just do not have guys that can make the same kind of plays.

  • Jim Harper

    At least there are no concerns about Jamaal. He looks great! Hillis not so much

  • sidibeke

    At least we didn’t quit. Going to have to chalk this up as just 1 loss. Ought to have Flowers and will have Hali next week.

    Our depth in the secondary is pitiful. Any vet FAs kicking around (noticed Samuel for Atl…why didn’t we pick him up?)?

    • tm1946

      Joking right? After one stinking game and “at least we didn’t quit”….Pioli has had 4 drafts and preagent periods and the team he put on the field in 2012 did not quit. Not to mention he has the “right” HC now and OC.
      I want wins, not “not quiting”

      • sidibeke

        Yes. When giving up 40 points, I want to see the team keep fighting. This was not a foregone conclusion not that long ago.

        I want the team’s head in the game next week. Not dwelling on this debacle, like I have no doubt you will since it simply reinforces what you want to believe anyway.
