Chiefs vs. Chargers: Live Game Thread

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs have beaten the San Diego Chargers two straight years at Arrowhead Stadium.

Can they make it three?

The game is about to kick off. Here are some last minute notes and my final predictions.

-Glenn Dorsey is OUT today with an injury. Will the run D suffer?

-Anthony Toribio returns. Will he get the start?

-Kendrick Lewis sits once again.

-Bowe and McCluster will play. Hillis and Boss are out. Look for extra work to go to RB Shaun Draughn.

-The Chargers are without kicker Nate Keading. Former Chief Nick Novak has signed on to replace him. Novak isn’t exactly accurate. Will he make the difference in a close game today?

Final Predictions:

I still don’t think I know this Chiefs team. I’ve seen them play about four good quarters of football all season long. Two against the Falcons and two against the Saints. The other eight quarters they looked horrendously bad. Who are the 2012 Kansas City Chiefs?

It will come down to consistency. If the Chiefs believe that they are the team that came back to beat the Saints, then they can turn their season around. If they believe last week was a fluke, they will likely fall back into the abyss of underachievement.

I said last week the Chiefs had to prove something to me on the field. They did it. That means, for this week at least, I’ve got to go with my boys.

Chiefs 24, Chargers 23

Kickoff is coming. Be sure to join us below in the comments for the live game thread.

What is everyone drinking today? I went with Honkers Harvest Ale. So glad it is fall.

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

      Yep.

  • RepOurChiefs

    does anyone have an online link to see the game?

    • kcfaninsdusmc

      wiziwig.tv go to forum, then afl,nfl,cfl, then go to streaming live game

      • RepOurChiefs

        ok..thank you

  • Talicore

    Let’s see some tears from the crybaby

  • BurtGummer44

    Defense has got to not let us get behind.

  • Talicore

    Battle looking the same as ever

  • BurtGummer44

    How come the D sucks so bad on 3rd n long?

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

      Good question.

  • ladner morse

    3rd down conversions are going to kill

  • Talicore

    Looks like we are getting some pressure just needs to be faster

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

    Chiefs need one of their play makers to show up here. An interception or a strip sack would be huge.

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

    Romeo gets some yards back.

  • BurtGummer44

    Come on Berry!

  • Miles Yi

    i love that!

  • BurtGummer44

    Could be a long day!

  • ladner morse

    Giving the Cs any confidence at all is a very bad thing.

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

    Secondary is awful. Routt and Flowers are solid but the rest of them are clowns in coverage. That includes Eric Berry.

  • Brandon

    Gotta stop them on third and long…

  • kcfaninsdusmc

    brady quinn time

  • Talicore

    Wow

  • Frank

    Why run it when we have charles? Makes too much sense

    • Talicore

      They were already stacking the box

  • ladner morse

    Geno Smith … Please

  • chiefx22

    Where are the Cassel defenders today? I’ll take you all on. 9 turnovers and now leads the league in turnovers. Only the Ealges as a team have more.

    • kcfaninsdusmc

      well man im a cassel defender, did you see the pocket, and get off here if your only going to be a pessimist. no one wants your negativity.

      • Guest

        You forgot to log in with your other account. Nice try though.

      • chiefx22

        Ya. I saw the pocket. I thought. Nice, they picked up the blitz. Cassel – 9 turnovers. I’m sure none of those are Cassel’s fault.

  • BurtGummer44

    I don’t know if can watch a whole season of Cassel

  • AKChieffan

    Donkey Donkey Donkey!

  • BurtGummer44

    Berry is getting destroyed by Gates.

    • AKChieffan

      I wish the offense would keep the ball long enough to figure it out

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

    Romeo has too high an opinion of Berry’s ability. He isn’t good enough to cover Antonio Gates by himself.

    • Talicore

      Yeah after that one especially want blanket coverage

  • Derek Jamison

    They haven’t looked ready to play in the first quarter in four games now. Crennel…what are you doing?

  • Frankybabee

    We seriously need a new qb!

  • chiefx22

    Chargers 7, Chiefs 0, Cassel -3 ….Where is Brady Quinn?

    • AkChieffan

      Ageed Quinn acually played better in the preseason

    • chiefx22

      We can still win as long as we keep the ball out of Cassel’s hands.

  • Brandon

    Alright come on offense!

  • ladner morse

    Anyone else notice that cassel is sailing his passes lately

    • chiefx22

      Lately? 90% of his passes since game one

  • BurtGummer44

    Penalties, missed assignments, stupid decisions, turnovers, bad calls………………..When does the Coaching Staff start taking some blame.

  • Derek Jamison

    I’m laughing now….so pathetic.

  • Talicore

    Man, not a good start

  • sportsfan101

    Wow!!!! Damn!!!

  • Frankybabee

    Wow

  • chiefx22

    Did anyone else see Brady Quinn put on a helmet? Is he coming in?

    • Talicore

      Wishful thinking? Are we?

    • Brandon

      I saw it

  • Chiefsgirl22

    I can’t watch the game (we’re up near Seattle), and if they keep up this crap, I won’t be able to listen to it, either.

    • AKChieffan

      Try a sight called P2P4u.net I am in Alaska and watch the game every week

  • mike in sd

    Ok so cassel throws a int an u all want him replaced charles fumbled an u all dont say a word what a patheic thing so

    • Chiefswatch

      Yea cause Charles has just as many turnovers. idiot

      • mike in sd

        R u caling me aidiot or the guy who will never admite anyone else but cassel makes mistakes

        • chiefx22

          He was talking to you. You made an idiotic comment comparing Cassel to Charles.

    • chiefx22

      Charles leads the league in rushing yards and has one turnover. Cassel sucks and has 9 turnovers. Do you see the difference?

    • Chiefsgirl22

      Difference: Charles fumbled ONCE, Cassel throws interceptions very often.

  • sportsfan101

    I’m not even gonna start on Cassel today… It’s not worth it I just wanted to see a good game and so far we’re off to a very bad start..

    • AKChieffan

      Cassel is a Donkey, did I say Donkey. He makes an Ass of himself and the Team

  • chiefx22

    Got a first down cause McCluster caught a bad pass. Go figure, yet another open receiver having to jump to catch a ball.

  • steve james

    Bud light in church!

  • Frank

    3rd and 10… lets throw it 3 yds

  • Chiefswatch

    3rd and ten, good ol five yard pass.

  • BurtGummer44

    3rd n 10………throw a 2 yard pass. SNAFU

  • Chiefswatch

    At least its early. Maybe Gates will get injured soon

  • Talicore

    No attempts downfield. Nothing keeping secondary honest

    • Chiefswatch

      lol they are too scared shit for brains Cassel will throw an interception. Know how teams play prevent Defense. Well our Chiefs play prevent offense.

  • BurtGummer44

    This Defense just sucks

    • Chiefswatch

      agreed

  • Chiefswatch

    at look at that pass and think could Cassel ever make that? Nope. That is why the kid is shit. Looks like our defense forgot how to play again.

  • Frankybabee

    Turn your head daniels wtf!!!!!!

  • AKChieffan

    Since still morning here, I went and made myself a cup of coffee and came back Rivers was still looking to throw, man he’s got a lot of time

  • Matt

    i was one of the people who said the chiefs would be 1 and 3 after this game so far im more than right

    • chiefx22

      Is your last name Cassel by any chance?

      • Matt

        I hate cassel

        • chiefx22

          explains why you suck. You hate yourself. haha

  • ladner morse

    Belcher in coverage… What a joke.

  • AKChieffan

    Man I think everyone on the Chargers offense
    use to play for the Chiefs last year

  • Talicore

    Getting harder to watch cassel play

    • chiefx22

      That’s like saying it can get colder than absolute zero.

  • Matt

    well maybe we will get a good qb next year

  • AKChieffan

    If the entire team is theis bad you have to look at the man in Charge Poili. He is the one I am sure that says play Cassel. And if he is telling the coach what and who to play and when, maybe it time to get a coach that will stand up to that non-sense. Crennel is just trying to cash on a last pay check before moving on with his life. The chiefs have so many problems

    • BurtGummer44

      I’m tired of hearing how good this roster is that he put together; only to see them lay crap all over the field.

      • Chiefswatch

        haha but man its great!! OBVIOUSLY

        • AKChieffan

          What does Hunt see in Poili. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Screw the Fan, just like Glass and the Royals

  • BurtGummer44

    Only good play, and it gets called back. Figures.

  • Chiefswatch

    jesus winston i thought you were good

    • chiefx22

      winston was too busy talking to the official instead of doing his job. That wasn’t Cassel’s fault

    • mikemccoy2

      his name isnt eric winston its eric cassel just ask chiefx22 he just trolls and blaims everything that goes wrong on him anyway maybe we should name the whole team cassel

      • chiefx22

        try reading. I just wrote that wasn’t cassel’s fault. Besides that, not my fault Cassel sucks.

    • BurtGummer44

      He is just trying to do us favor by letting Cassel get creamed.

      • Chiefswatch

        NO NO NO if Cassel gets injured we will have to see him again next year. If he would have played last year I know we wouldnt have him as our QB this year

        • sportsfan101

          Nah somebody might get wise and realize we need a better QB,,

      • chiefx22

        Might be a good idea. Coaches can’t put him out there if he is hurt

  • AKChieffan

    yea we got the ball to kick it away

  • sidibe

    All the signs of a poorly coached team: turnovers and penalties. Not good.

  • sportsfan101

    Cassel might be hurt…

    • chiefx22

      From your computer to God’s ears

  • Chiefswatch

    Yea lets not double Gates.

  • Tribal Rage

    The Chiefs are who we thought they were

  • BurtGummer44

    Berry can’t run with a man twice his size?

  • Talicore

    Basically Berry’s second rookie year

  • mikemccoy2

    r D sucks we r not gonna win if they keep playing like this but we can only hope they play better

  • AKChieffan

    The only thng positive is Gates is on my Fastansy team

  • Tribal Rage

    Berry is slow….not intense…that injury ruined his career

  • chiefx22

    The one positive thing is our Rushing D is solid.

  • ewan the chiefs fan

    There is a lot of blame to go around and Cassel certainly deserves his share, but to me this is all coaching. We have consistently been unprepared to play. When you have talent and they are unprepared, that is on the coaching.

    • BurtGummer44

      I’m not so sure we have the Talent everybody thinks we have. This roster is seriously over-rated.

      • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

        I agree. And even if KC has the talent, the last couple years SD has shown that doesn’t matter as much as people think.

        The “team” seems to be made up of a bunch of guys trying to win the game themselves. Kick and punt returners think they can return it to the house everytime they touch it. All they really do is get stopped before the 20.

        The QB thinks he can wing the ball anywhere, or pull it down and run for a TD.

        Too many of the DBs think they can pick-six on every play, or pop the ball out on a fumble so they don’t cover and don’t actually tackle.

        A lot of that comes from the top down. Norv hasn’t really done anything as a HC with all the talent he’s had, and Romeo seems to be doing the same.

    • Chiefswatch

      Yea and Cassel sucks

    • chiefx22

      Berry looks like the biggest problem on D and Cassel on O. I think we do have the talent. The front seven has had a good year so far. And we are first in rushing before today. Baldwin and Bowe are talented when they aren’t doing acrobatics to catch sailing balls.

      • Brandon

        Berry is stuck guarding one of the best te’s ever. Need to double team Gates

    • AKChieffan

      I believe in Poili, becuase really he is running the show. Crennel I agree is just collecting a couple of pay checks before he retires. If Pioli stays the President then we need a coach to stand up to him and knows football and players better than him. Gruden, or maybe Cower (sP)

  • sportsfan101

    The D is starting to get tired now they’ve been on the field a long time.. Wake up Cassel….

    • chiefx22

      No let him sleep. Wake up Brady Quinn

  • chiefx22

    Ok Chiefs turn this around. Long drive for a TD. Then we get the ball to start the second half. We can be down by 6!

    • chiefx22

      Nevermind. Game over.

  • Chiefswatch

    What the fuck Charles.

  • sportsfan101

    Seriously!!!!!! Another Charles Fumble??????

  • BurtGummer44

    Season Ticket holders should get a refund for this game.

  • AKChieffan

    Charles came in over confident

  • mikemccoy2

    dam it Charles stop fumbling who cares if he is leading the league in rushing so far they got a Td off his last turnover we cant win with all these turnovers

    but i know u all will defend him but right now he is playing worse then cassel on this game so far

    • chiefx22

      No. So far for the game you are right. And that’s hard to do. Cassel has a fumble and a INT.

  • sportsfan101

    OMG!! The D needs to rest…

  • sportsfan101

    That’s what I’m talkin bout Flowers….

    • mikemccoy2

      lets just hope cassel doesnt mess up or Charles right now and for the love of god lets give r D a rest

      • sportsfan101

        Agreed….

  • Talicore

    God damn hali just does not get calls

  • chiefx22

    Ok….back to my previous statement. Long drive for a TD, followed by taking the 2nd half kick off for a TD. Down by 6.

  • AKChieffan

    I see the plan wear oout the Chargers Offense, I had it all wrong. I understand it now

  • Talicore

    Cassel seems to have more zip on his throws suddenly

  • Yearly Letdown

    Horrible

  • Chiefx22

    Cassel can thank the refs for bailing him out on that extremely high pass.

    • mikemccoy2

      hush dont jinx we will take anything right now

      • sportsfan101

        :-)

  • mikemccoy2

    PADDY WHEN WE GETTING AA RADIO BACK MAN oh ya paddy u and the girl get married yet i know its off subject bud

  • mikemccoy2

    FINALLY THEY DID SOMETHING RIGHT AND MAINLY U CHARLES GOOD JOB

  • sidibe

    We have life!

  • AKChieffan

    Amazing

  • Talicore

    Nice jc

  • sportsfan101

    Will somebody please tell Cassel to stop throwing the ball to Bowe he’s double covered.. Let him know that he’s got other recievers.. Good way to make up for the fumble charles..

  • sidibe

    But Damn! Can’t we get this team to show up in the 1st?

    • mikemccoy2

      agreed

  • Chiefx22

    Cassel and Charles figured out this wasn’t practice on that drive. Good job by both of them.

  • BurtGummer44

    Cassel throws better blocks than passes.

  • Miles Yi

    wow! ok that gets back one fumble. let’s get one more, jamaal.

    • chiefx22

      He only needed to get one back. The second was wiped out by flowers. I still give him a C- for the game though.

  • sportsfan101

    He’s not going thru his reads again..

    • sidibe

      He never goes through his reads.

      • mikemccoy2

        i agree he needs to relax and try not to force the passes i think his big problem is he is panicing to much if Cassel can relax like he did in 2010 i think he will be ok

  • Brandon

    Holy shit that was amazing jc!

    • AKChieffan

      Amazing was the exact word I used AMAZING

  • RepOurChiefs

    im speechless

  • BurtGummer44

    Good Grief!

  • Talicore

    Well that won’t happen again will it gafford

  • mikemccoy2

    ..wow… i just dont know what to say on that extra piont

  • sportsfan101

    The D had time to rest lets see what they do now..

  • sportsfan101

    And Routt’s known for getting P. I.’s with the Raiders..

  • Miles Yi

    is the chiefs’ secondary not used to real refs, or are they just way out of position today?

  • BurtGummer44

    Holly Crap, SD has to punt!

  • AKChieffan

    Great hit by Arenas

  • AKChieffan

    DON”T lIKE DISQUS, consentant refresh, not showing comments, it sucks

  • sportsfan101

    Keeping the D field with impact how they play because they are so tired now it’s up to Cassel.

  • AKChieffan

    Cassel should be pulled for the 2nd half

    • AKChieffan

      He needs a reality check about how bad is

  • BurtGummer44

    What does it take to pull Cassel?

  • Chiefswatch

    FUCK YOU CASSEL

  • chiefx22

    The good news Cassel didn’t sail it on a receiver. The bad news, he’s now throwing it behind his receivers.

  • sportsfan101

    I can’t stand him but they keep playing him and I don’t know why? Here we go again they are wearing our D.. Thanks Cassel..

  • chiefx22

    San Diego 17, Chiefs 6, Cassel -10

  • Tribal Rage

    Bench him….seasons over…Call Jeff Garcia

  • BurtGummer44

    Cassel just doesn’t have “it”, I don’t know why everyone but the Chiefs leadership can see it.

    • chiefx22

      He has it. He also has Sshhhhhhhh before it.

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      There’s plenty of fans and writers that don’t see it too.

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    Every game so far this year has showed how screwed up the entire KC team is. Coaches calling bad plays, players not prepared, not executing, and then making stupid mistakes.

    Even in the victory they looked bad. But a win and suddenly everyone thinks the team has turned a corner.

  • Chiefswatch

    Anyone else notice that Winston has not been good. Peyton Hillis has been a non factor too. Our entire draft has yet to make a single play. Whats all this shit about a good offseason?

  • Tribal Rage

    No one has it today….Cassel rarely has it…the Defense certainly doesnt have it…I wish it wasnt football season

    • BurtGummer44

      I have sunday ticket, and watching Game Mix there are a couple of good games on right now.

  • chiefx22

    Cassel has now taken over for worst Chief for the game. There is a shocker. I knew it was only a matter of time before he would tarnish our hopes of a comeback.

  • Chiefswatch

    So that makes three TDs and what 6 interceptions on the year?

    • chiefx22

      He is not accurate at all! He’s consistent. But he’s consistently 1 yard off his intended target.

      • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

        And usually that’s one yard above his target.

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Don’t forget his fumbles either. I know one against ATL and one against BUF. Maybe more.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Worst QB in the league

  • Tribal Rage

    I wish we had Tebow….yea I said it

  • David Fritch

    Brady Quinn Please…..

  • Yearly Letdown

    My name says it all

  • David Fritch

    I really like John Gruden, I’m pretty sure Cower has no interest in coaching but Gruden is still young!

  • AKChieffan

    Thigpen had more heart than Cassel. I am at a lost with the guy, what do the Chiefs see in him? He’s been a back up all his life, what is it about him Pioli says he’s the guy where going with no matter what

  • chiefx22

    On one of these boards, I put Cassel’s over/under for the game was 2.5 turnovers. I meant that as an entire game.

  • Brandon

    Defense is actually doing well. Offense is putting them in the redzone every time

    • BurtGummer44

      I wouldn’t say well, they gave up an opening drive and Berry is getting destroyed in the passing game.

      • chiefx22

        Defense has given up 10 points. They have played well since that opening drive.

  • Tribal Rage

    Heres some optimism…we score a TD here then get ball at start of 2nd half and score on opening drive…27-20 with momentum….but we are the chiefs

  • Yearly Letdown

    Also does cassel see anyone on the field other than bowe

    • BurtGummer44

      Seriously, all a defense has to cover is Bowe and the back out of the backfield.

  • chiefx22

    Cassel could through 19 TD’s the remainder of this game. He SUCCCCCKKS….ok 19 would be pretty good. Except he’d have to throuw 38 INT’s to get there.

  • Kcndarock13

    Gates should be covered by a db not Eric berry.. I think as well as some of y’all it’s definitely coaching but cassel sucks and no1 is realizing he sucks.. Winston is struggling as bad as cassel

  • AKChieffan

    Play Eachus a little, would like to see what he’s got

  • tm1946

    just got in from a round of golf. did pretty well for me. Wonder if the posters this week are still cheering the team on?

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    You might think Cassel was throwing that one away, but he really wasn’t. He was trying to hit is receiver, but was just that far off.

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    The Chiefs seem to do OK in spite of, not because of, Cassel. That’s how you know he’s bad.

  • Yearly Letdown

    And that’s that

  • Kcndarock13

    Always cheer but I’m done buying chiefs merchandise this year

    • BurtGummer44

      The best time to buy that stuff is when they suck…………..it ends up on a clearance rack.

  • sportsfan101

    DAMN!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!

  • BurtGummer44

    5 turnovers in one half! That’s gotta be close to a record.

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    Don’t worry everyone, Cassel isn’t the problem. He’ll turn this team around, just need to give him more time.

    I copied that sentence and replaced Croyle with Cassel.

  • chiefx22

    Cassel now has 11 turnovers

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Don’t worry, he’s still a really good QB, he’s not the problem at all. #sarcasm #thingsChiefsWritersSay

    • Brandon

      That onre was on dexter

    • cheifx22

      Cassel has 11 turnovers

  • Yearly Letdown

    Brutal

  • Kcndarock13

    I want a 1 on. 1 with pioli and ask him what the hell

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Pioli and RAC.

    • AKChieffan

      Pioli is an @##$%^&^&*I*(

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    Can’t blame McCluster for not laying out for that pass, probably didn’t want to lose his other elbow.

  • AKChieffan

    Pioli this is your fault!

  • sportsfan101

    Thank you for taking the QB knee….

  • sidibe

    So, does Cassel start the 2nd half?

    • Chiefswatch

      yes

  • Chiefswatch

    Everyone was duped into buying tickets to this game too. Fuck that game in NO wish we would have lost

  • Tribal Rage

    Baldwin was wide open and behind the Defense….Cassel throws a check down drag route…it wasnt his fault DMC didnt catch it…its his fault he threw that pass

    • Chiefswatch

      When is the last time you saw Cassel throw behind the defense?

      • Tribal Rage

        only when he overthrows our receiver

  • Kcndarock13

    Let’s try Quinn take a chance can’t b worst than cassel

  • David Fritch

    Brady Quinn never had a real shot in the NFL, He was so fun to watch at Notre Dame PLEASE PUT HIM IN!

  • BurtGummer44

    The one pass Cassel puts in someone’s hand and they can’t catch it……………I guess they’re just not used to balls hitting them in the hands.

    • Chiefswatch

      hahaah

  • AKChieffan

    Pioli Needs to B slapped

  • Yearly Letdown

    Please get something changed

  • http://www.facebook.com/dan.rice.7169 Dan Rice

    Cassel SUCKS

  • http://www.facebook.com/dan.rice.7169 Dan Rice

    CHEFS are PRETENDERS

  • http://www.facebook.com/dan.rice.7169 Dan Rice

    FIRE EVERYONE OF THEM GET OUT OF KC

  • chiefx22

    Cassel’s rating for the year = 64.4 Who wants do defend 64.4? 64.4 That makes him number 29 out of 32 starting QB’s. So I guess the Cassel fan club can now point to us how great he his that we don’t have Weeden?

  • Chiefswatch

    So shit for brains, noodle armed, no accuracy Cassel has not had a decent game since we took on the hapless Colts of last year. Subtract that game and he has not had a decent game since 2010 when we had the cushiest schedule in the league. WHY IS THIS RETARD STILL OUR QB?

  • ThisChiefsFan

    The defense hasn’t even been playing that badly but the offense keeps giving the Chargers extra chances.

  • Yearly Letdown

    I bet next year we will have thirty million left in our salary cap. As long as fans keep coming and Clark gets rich.

    • chiefx22

      Next year everyone has to spend 98% of the salary cap.

      • tm1946

        And we have to decide whether to resign Dorsey, Jackson, and Albert…..as least “we supposedly have to decide”.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dan.rice.7169 Dan Rice

    I REFUSE TO WATCH THIS BS NOR WILL I EVER PAY ANY MONIES TO THIS ORGANIZATION

  • AKChieffan

    Has anyone noticed I am done blaming Cassel, he is what he is, Horrible. I blaming Pioli, he is the one whom has set up this great failure!!!!!

  • Tribal Rage

    wouldnt be mad if Quinn comes in and leads us to an embarrassing loss…complete the cleveland transition

    • chiefx22

      At least it would be trying something new.

      • Tribal Rage

        poor qb play and losing is unfortunately nothing new

    • AKChieffan

      thats funny, but its not

  • Chiefswatch

    haha the shit of it all is we have no hope behind Cassel. We have instead Shit Quinn and the even shittier Ricki piss in my pants Stanzi. This season is gone

    • tm1946

      i am betting there are 5 more wins out there, somewhere. Just enough to get a nice DL project with the first pick in the next college draft.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Yes change something up

  • Tribal Rage

    on the bright side if the patriots lose to buff…they are 1-3 also…

  • Yearly Letdown

    Yeah stanzi was a bust too. How about drafting other than a d-line first for once

    • kcfaninsdusmc

      AGREED!!! So what is it this year, last year it was suck for luck what is it this year??? Don’t get me wrong im a cassel supporter but there is something wrong with him

      • tm1946

        if you want to believe media types not a lot of talent in college, maybe the kid from VT but not anyone everyone says is a cannot miss. Besides who believes Pioli will draft a QB anyway?

  • AKChieffan

    All last year I heard people saying Cassel wasn’t that bad, for the last two year I have been calling him a DONKEY. People said I was wrong, how can I guy from Alaska, never played the game, know Cassel sucked before the coaches

  • BurtGummer44

    The Chiefs will play just good enough in the last half of the season to get everyone’s off season hopes up, then they’ll essentially field the same team next year.

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Happened last year. I believed, all the way up until the ATL game.

  • Chiefswatch

    The cheaps draft Dline and Oline because they are cheap to resign.

  • Chiefswatch

    Great Cassel, think I am going to turn on PS3

  • Tribal Rage

    Pioli told RAC if he benches Cassel he will be fired

  • Chiefswatch

    We always perform best when down by 20….

  • sidibe

    So, do we draft a QB 1st round or try to get on FA? Or both?

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      What SHOULD KC do? I prefer draft. What WILL they do? Neither.

    • chiefx22

      I’d say go wishbone, but we have three top receivers in Bowe Baldwin and Breaston…..it just takes qb to realize we have them on our team.

      • Yearly Letdown

        If bowe isn’t gone

  • Yearly Letdown

    Take out someone on their bench charles

  • Yearly Letdown

    Nice dance cassel

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    Anyone else see Bowe not really try to block downfield on the Droughn screen?

  • kcfaninsdusmc

    if he didnt knock it down that would have been int

  • BurtGummer44

    5 turnovers and only down by 14. Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmm

    • AKChieffan

      Bend don’t break theory

  • AKChieffan

    Oh we scored, everything is good now. HAhahaha Cassel still sucks

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      You laugh, but replace “scored” with “won” and that’s all I heard this past week.

  • chiefx22

    Chargers 17, Chiefs 13, Cassel -10

    • cheifx22

      Cassel threw a TD after INT (TAINT) and another while we were about to score before half, or we would be tied.

  • sportsfan101

    Our D should be good now but their offensive has also had time to rest..

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

    Can someone explain to me how we are only down 14 points. Seriously. How is that possible?

    • AKChieffan

      Norv has feelings and feels sorry for us

    • chiefx22

      We have a really good running game. Our defense has played well minus one drive. We do have a really good 21. We are just missing that 22nd player. I’ll leave it up to the board who that 1 player is that needs to be replaced.

      • AKChieffan

        You have a good point Chiefx22, but I think I am right

      • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

        We don’t have a good 21. We have an above average 5 or 6. An average 13-15 and a bad 2 or 3. Every game this season has highlighted each group. Also highlighted that the team (from at least coaches down) as a whole is not very good.

    • ladner morse

      Wondering the same.

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      It’s still SD on the other side of the field.

  • Miles Yi

    nice work DEFENSE!

  • chiefx22

    If RAC could learn how to bench Cassel, we won’t lose another game.

  • AKChieffan

    2 punts in a row, 2nd half come back again by the D

  • sportsfan101

    That’s what I thought!! Good D as long as they’re not on the field for a very long time.. Now I hate to say it but it’s up to Cassel again…

  • Yearly Letdown

    Just start the game this pumped

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Part of KC’s problem (and I attribute this to coaching & game planning) is they’re consistently inconsistent. First half against ATL wasn’t bad. 4Q against NO was good. But they’ve yet to play a complete game.

      Had same problem under Haley and Herm. Unfortunately it hasn’t gotten any better.

  • chiefx22

    How is it our QB is so bad, but our offense is ranked #1?

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

      Garbage time yards.

      • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

        Which this year has typically meant “Second Half”

    • sportsfan101

      Run game man!! Damn Cassel stop throwing to Bowe when other players are open…

      • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

        I bet Cassel has Bowe on his fantasy team and it’s PPR.

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

    Time to give Charles 30 carries.

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    Another off target pass for Cassel

  • chiefx22

    Cassel needs to know there is more than one WR on the team

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

      Agreed.

    • Yearly Letdown

      Exactly

    • AKChieffan

      The Defender should have got a flag, hanging on Bowes back like that.

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    Do you think Breaston, Baldwin and Moeaki are frustrated because they have to share like 2 targets in the entire game.

  • BurtGummer44

    D needs to force a turnover

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      It better be a pick-6 because if not, Cassel or Charles might give it back today.

  • AKChieffan

    Cassel has to show some ergency

  • AKChieffan

    Crushed

  • Miles Yi

    PITOITUA!

  • BurtGummer44

    Boy Rivers just gave up.

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      That’s what he does.

      Although, if he had dropped one more step it would have been a safety, so that was actually a smart move.

  • sportsfan101

    Here we go again with Cassel… Damn please give me another QB?

    • AKChieffan

      Not unless he get hurt, they just keep him to help him mature as a QB. Why would they keep him in?

  • AKChieffan

    Which the offence took a lesson from the D

  • Yearly Letdown

    Please hammer rivers again

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

    Give the ball to Charles please.

  • Chiefswatch

    Fucking Cassel throw. What a piece of shit. Wide open we need the points and THAT is your pass? What a joke

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    Typical Cassel throw. Overthrows a receiver by about 6 feet.

  • BurtGummer44

    Stinking Cassel and his overthrows.

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      You don’t have to say “overthrow” when talking about Cassel passing, it’s just redundant.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Well cassel is having a career day.

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Typical day, I believe.

  • Chiefx22

    I would yell at Cassel for over throwing his Wideout, but I now put that on the coaches. They know that’s what he will do. His completion on that last drive was Moeaki making a nice catch on a ball thrown behind him.

  • sportsfan101

    Did anybody see the TE open running across the middle?

    • Chiefswatch

      No but I saw a wide open Dwayne Bowe that would have been a TD had it been anyone on earth throwing other than Cassel

      • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

        Or a DPI if it was underthrown.

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Cassel didn’t! He only has yes for Bowe. For YEARS he’s locked on to his primary receiver and can’t move through progressions. We’ve been told he’ll get better, but he hasn’t yet.

    • chiefx22

      He has wideouts open all over. We have the offensive weapons. We don’t have a logistics guy (QB) to get them the ball.

  • Chiefswatch

    Can we get Kyle Orton back from Dallas?

    • chiefx22

      Biggest misplay by the front office was letting him go

  • Yearly Letdown

    D is doing their job

  • Chiefswatch

    Defense is doing all that it can. Unfortunately they are blessed with Matt Cassel and Co

  • BurtGummer44

    The way #75 is playing; who needs Dorsey.

    • AKChieffan

      No Kidding

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      No doubt. I’ve seen more from #75 in the 1/2 of the game I’ve seen than in years with Dorsey.

  • ThisChiefsFan

    That’s what the third consecutive 3 and out. Cmon offense pull it together. Just hand it off to charles

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Fans in SD are thinking “How are we still winning with all these 3 and outs.. Oh wait, we’re playing Matt “Throw it to Bowe” Cassel

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

    I wonder what the deal is with the D? Is Romeo just making the proper adjustments?

    • Cheifx22

      That’s what Romeo is best at. Had it not been for the offense, the defense would have only given up 10 points today.

    • Chiefswatch

      Its as if they need some time to warm up. Really though they been playing well most of the game they just been in some bad situations.

    • sportsfan101

      They had time to rest….

      • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

        The 7 days between games isn’t enough time to rest but 12 minutes is?

  • Talicore

    How big will the extra point be if we get caught up

  • AKChieffan

    Our offense make the D look bad, only one score did the D give in Reality. The first TD by the Chargers, the rest have been because of the offense, fumbles, int, Cassel and Cassel

  • Yearly Letdown

    Wildcat with Charles keep the ball out of cassels hands

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      If it wasn’t for Charles 2 fumbles today, I might be in agreement. Let’s not pretend that Charles is perfect. He’s 1/3 of the Chiefs turnovers today. You know, the turnovers that lead to 17 points.

      • bud

        please though acknowledge the difference between expected (i.e. Cassel ints) and exception (Charles fumbles).

        • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

          Sure, as soon as NFL rules take into account exception or expected, I’ll acknowledge them.

          This TEAM sucks. Not just Cassel. Neither side has played 60 minutes of football. The line gives up too much pressure. The DL doesn’t consistently get pressure, the DBs keep misplaying receivers. LB are out of position too often (how many WIDE open receivers did NO have last week?)

          Punt and Kick returners keep trying to win the game themselves by returning out of the end zone instead of taking a touchback.

          Yes Charles doesn’t fumble as much as Cassel throws INTs, but to have 2 in one game tells me to not put the game on anyone’s back.

          Charles might be the best offensive player this year, but that’s a lot like the skinniest kid at fat camp.

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    I want that page taken from the playbook and BURNED. I’m tired of 2&10 turning to 3&14 on a completed pass.

    There’s just no way you win a game with 6 giveaways.

  • Chiefswatch

    Why were we running the ball with Draughn on a 3rd and really long?

    • BurtGummer44

      Better odds than a Cassel throw.

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Typical KC 3rd down play. 3rd & 1 throw deep. 3rd & 7+ then let’s run a draw.

  • sportsfan101

    6 turnovers in one game and we are only down 14…

  • Tribal Rage

    6 turnovers 20 pts off by SD

  • Yearly Letdown

    Unbelievable

    • Chiefswatch

      no completely believable

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Not really. Have you been watching KC this year? Not only is it believable, it’s expected.

  • mikemccoy2

    im sorry but cassel charles and the whole OFF has been crap all day only good thing is r def but dear god the frist half killed r Def i think they spent 3/4 of the frist half on the field

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    That sideline shot seems to be a symptom. Turnover and the offense is just sitting on the bench watching the game. Not talking, not up in anyone’s face, just sitting there like fans.

    Actually fans typically have more energy than the offense sitting on the bench.

  • BurtGummer44

    A SD FG ices this game.

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      A SD kneel down probably ices this game.

  • Chiefx22

    We need a turnover or this game is over. We will be down by 3 possessions.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Pathetic. Chargers lubed the ball I think

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      No, KC just isn’t good this year.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Turnover. Come on

  • Chiefswatch

    1-3 going into a game against the Ravens. lol

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      I’m still surprised by the 1.. I was expecting 0-whatever when they went into the Bucs game.

    • BurtGummer44

      Maybe we’ll get lucky and the Ravens will break Cassel for the rest of the season.

      • AKChieffan

        Better yet maybe Pioli will fall down the stairs

      • ThisChiefsFan

        If cassel gets hurt again it’ll be an excuse to bring him back next year. We need cassel to play until management realizes how bad he is and gets rid of him

  • Chiefswatch

    so any retard poster or AA writer want to tell me Cassel is as good as Rivers?

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

      Ease up on the venom brother.

  • ThisChiefsFan

    I hate to say a game is over before it is, especially involving the chiefs but our offense is just too inept to come back. The defense played solid football but the offense just was poor today, especially cassel.

      Actually after watching him, I was thinking no wonder we let him walk. Draughn is a better back.

  • Echo6

    That’s it I’m done with this team. I hope they lose every game the rest of the year. I hope they fire everyone and start a new team. No heart on this team. Go Chargers

  • BurtGummer44

    Why would you even have Charles out there exposing him to injury. He’s all we got on offense.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Garbage yards

  • sportsfan101

    I’ve been done with Cassel for 3 years now and it hasn’t changed.. But the funny part is the GM and the coach won’t replace the QB or bench him.. If they don’t replace the QB soon then the season is already over.. This game is already over…

  • Chiefx22

    Bowe was wiiiiiiiiide open and he still had to fight for a pourly thrown ball.

  • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

    Matt “Don’t call it garbage time” Cassel is back.

  • Echo6

    Anyone who buys another ticket or anything related to the Chiefs are just padding the pocket of Hunt. Why don’t you just send your money to someone who needs it. Go Raiders (At least they had a owner who wanted to win.)

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Your $80 sweatshirt is worthless to Hunt.

  • AKChieffan

    I think the Chiefs will be named the biggest disappointment of the year by the experts. I know its early, but I see no resolve to this until next year, Don’t get me wrong, I want them to turn it around now, but they really stink. As long as the offense performs like this we can’t win any games unless we take the D and make them our offence too. It just seems it either side of the ball we have issues, mainly offense, because it the offense just protected the ball more, we would win more often.

    • Tyler Frederickson

      Espn has has Making to the playoffs but we are not a playoff team

      • AKChieffan

        A lot of experts have them in the playoffs, that is why they will be the biggest disappointment

  • BurtGummer44

    WTF is Charles still doing out there?

  • AKChieffan

    Crennel isn’t going to out in Quinn in the last 2 minutes. If Quinnn was to score quickly, a qb conversity would start. As if we don’t have one now

    • http://twitter.com/taylonr Nate Taylor

      Cassel will play EVERY snap unless he is hurt. If he wasn’t replaced against ATL or BUF there won’t be a large enough loss for Cassel to be replaced.

      Seeing as KC hasn’t had a lead for 0:01 yet this season, safe to say there won’t be a blow out big enough for Cassel to take a seat.

      • AKChieffan
