Chiefs vs. Ravens: Live Game Thread

The Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens are about to hit the field.

While you are all reading this, I am on a plane on my way back from Toronto. I was speaking at a blogging conference this weekend. Most unfortunately, that means I won’t arrive back at AA headquarters until after the game is over. That means I’m watching on a serious tape-delay.

You guys are on your own this week. You’ll have to suffer the misery without me.

As always, what is everyone drinking for today’s game?

    I made it back early. Now I’m here to share in the misery.

    • mike in sd

      Hey u get marries yet

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

        In a month.

        • CrowheartButte

          nothing like a group experience!

        • mike in sd

          We all want pics ob the site paddy after all u r family to us all

      • http://twitter.com/_NateFuller Nathan Fuller

        Gratz on tying the knot!

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

    Stadium looks deserted today.

  • BurtGummer44

    What are the odds of this NOT being a blowout?

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

      Poor. But it is the NFL so you never know.

  • chiefx22

    I think we win. Cassel learns his lesson, only one turnover today, and we win. Our offense is too good. Outgained every opponent so far.

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

      Even if KC wins, I don’t think Cassel suddenly learns “his lesson” after playing the same brand of football for 4 years.

    • tm1946

      I agree. no reason to think they “should” but am predicting they will.

  • http://twitter.com/_NateFuller Nathan Fuller

    I think the fans are going to make their message loud and clear tonight. 1. by not showing. 2. by this anti Matt Cassel fly over banner.

    It is a sad day in this Chiefs franchise. In it to the end.

  • tm1946

    Anyone know why Draughns is the kick returner? Wylie, Arenas, and McCluster missing in action?

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

      Perhaps its because Arenas keeps bringing it out from 7 yards deep in the endzone. At least that’s the reason I’m hoping for.

  • BurtGummer44

    To win the Defense has to create turnovers.

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

    So that makes 21 straight games without scoring a TD on the opening possession, correct?

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

    I didn’t see who, but someone in the middle of the DL knocked his guy head over heels…literally

  • http://twitter.com/_NateFuller Nathan Fuller

    Good stop Chiefs!

  • BurtGummer44

    Hey the Defense didn’t allow an opening drive TD. That’s a small victory!

    • Jordan Pollock

      Agreed! No thanks to our D though. Thanks for the drop Pitta

      • chiefx22

        Even if he caught it, they would have been short by a yard. Good defense has been breaking up passes. Secondary has come to play today.

    • tm1946

      IN my day you always tried to withstand the first flury of the other team. Then they settle into what they can really do.

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

        That’s why I prefer to start the 2nd half with the ball, instead of the first half. Plus you have a chance to have back-to-back scores if you finish first half with a score.

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

      They also didn’t allow a TD against Buf, and that didn’t end well

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

    Here’s a chance for KC to take it’s first lead of the season.

  • ladner morse

    When is Arenas going to break one?

  • chiefx22

    Cassel’s first pass is right on the money! Let’s keep this up!

    • chiefx22

      That’s what happens when Cassel can pass, opens up more holes for Charles. Defense has to play honest.

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

      His first pass wasn’t a yard over the head of Bowe. But Bowe still had to go down to two knees to make the catch. Wouldn’t call that “right on the money”

  • http://twitter.com/MizzouZoulogy Zoulogy

    Charles!

  • tm1946

    And we punt again

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

    KC still doesn’t take lead, but they push the time they haven’t trailed up to 56 minutes. If they can hold the Ravens here, they might make it to a full game of time they haven’t trailed.

  • BurtGummer44

    3rd and 8, and a draw to Draughn. Looks like the coaches are protecting Cassel and playing field position. Pretty sad when you gotta protect 4 year starter.

  • ladner morse

    Run L run R run up the middle – has Marty come back. From the grave???

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

    I’m surprised BAL hasn’t tried to go deep yet. I think with this D, I’d start every game throwing a deep pass, just to see. Even if no completion, might get DPI.

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

    Tamba Hali!

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

    That drive by baltimore took a little over 1 minute. Got the ball at 7:00 in the 1Q

  • http://twitter.com/MizzouZoulogy Zoulogy

    Defense looking good early.

  • tm1946

    Something wrong on this site today, not updating, seems locked in each post. Guess I will just watch the game in silence.

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

      I think it has to do with nobody being on here. I’d guess there’s about as many people here as in the stadium.

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

    So anyone want to say that Charles wasn’t a problem last week? 3 fumbles in 2 weeks.

    • Chiefswatch

      He is still our offense, you want him not on our team???

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

        I want him to not be 100% of our offense. I want people to realize this team, as a TEAM, sucks. Yes, Cassel can turn the ball over, but so can the rest of the offense.

  • Frank

    WHY IS CYRUS GRAY IN THE GAME

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

      I wonder if JC isn’t 100%. Seems like after a couple big plays he’s coming out.

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

    Son. of. a. bitch.

    • Chiefswatch

      yea

  • chiefx22

    Why isn’t Druaghn playing? Gray is our 4th string running back for a reason

  • http://twitter.com/_NateFuller Nathan Fuller

    When did we saw the hands off all of these chiefs? I missed that.

  • BurtGummer44

    Fumblin, Bumblin, stumblin. These guys are like an old Don Knotts movie.

  • Chiefswatch

    Well we are not getting anywhere without passing anyway

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

    I believe this is the longest KC has held an opponent scoreless this season.

  • BurtGummer44

    Lets see, a turnover followed by a defensive collapse. I think I’ve watched this game before.

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

      I’ve seen this game, more or less, for the past 11 years.

  • ladner morse

    Yuck

  • BurtGummer44

    Almost went a whole quarter before falling behind.

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

      Yeah, but it’s a total of 63 minutes. Which means that over the course of the 4.25 games, KC has only trailed for 3.25 games.

      • chiefx22

        huh? We have not held the lead for 1 second this year.

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

          Right, but we’ve been tied for 63 minutes. Adam Teicher was tweeting that before this game, KC had been tied for 49 minutes. Before this week, 26 of those 49 minutes were to start the game 0-0. Add in 4Q & overtime in NO and it’s almost 100% of the time.

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

    The coverage is pretty good today as is the pass rush. Once the Ravens figure out that the Chiefs line features a rookie and a 3rd stringer they’ll start running a ton.

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

    Ok so 9 yard run by Charles. Time for him to sit on the bench.

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

    Used to think being a punter in Indy was the most boring job in the NFL. Now it might be a KC WR.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Sooner or later they are gonna stop the run and then it’s scary cassel throwing time.

    • BurtGummer44

      It’s obvious the Coaches don’t trust him. If that’s the case why not try another QB? In the meantime you wear out your only pony (JC) worth a crap.

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

        Yeah, it’s nice double-speak. Cassel is our starter. But he’s only going to throw 2 passes in the first quarter.

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

    Normal Ravens chippiness

  • Yearly Letdown

    And there it is.

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

      Cassel won’t pass again today, now. They got gutsy “Hey, he’s 3 for 3 let’s open it up.”

  • Chiefswatch

    I only have eyes for you

  • BurtGummer44

    Cassel never looked for another receiver.

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

      Did you just copy & paste that from every other week :)

    • Chiefswatch

      he never does

    • mike in sd

      No he did but bowe was the closet one to beong open

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

    Something I HATE is players calling for flags, instead of playing. Bowe is more concerned about miming that a flag should be thrown than getting up and going after the ball. Team has no dedication and that seems to come from above.

  • mike in sd

    Wasnt that pass interference or was ot a bad angel

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

      I think bad angle. Or at least too close to call.

  • Sportsfan101

    Here we go again…. Will someone please tell Cassel that he’s got other options besides Bowe..

  • chiefx22

    CASSSSSSELLLLLL!!!!! Back to the rescue for the other team. Yardage is 115-60 yet we are losing….Too many turnovers by cassel…..12 for the year. Ugh

  • Yearly Letdown

    Why put other receivers on the field? Cassel never looks for anyone else.

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

      I think it’s because they don’t have enough TEs to use them, and the backup OL gets tired of reporting as eligible receivers every play.

  • Chiefswatch

    wasnt even a tip. good coverage by webb hand in there to knock it up

  • Yearly Letdown

    It’s sad cause the D looks like they showed up.

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

    If we could have 11 Houstons & Tambas this team would be better than the ’85 bears.

  • http://twitter.com/MizzouZoulogy Zoulogy

    Remember when all we needed was a pass rush to win? Well that’s the only thing we have now.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Oh come on refs

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

    I haven’t been impressed with Routt this year. He’s not bad, but I don’t think he’s a 50 million dollar man either.

    • Chiefswatch

      probably why he isnt paid 50 mill

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

        My bad, I was thinking of how they wouldn’t sign Carr for 50 million. So that number was stuck in my head. I retract my statement.

  • Jim Harper

    As usual the Chiefs get a nice drive and Cassel throws interception

  • BurtGummer44

    Tyson Jackson made a play? Holly Cow!

  • http://twitter.com/MizzouZoulogy Zoulogy

    Poe has really anchored stopping the run this year.

  • Chiefswatch

    Well Defense and Running game is awesome today

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

      I wouldn’t call 2 fumbles (1 lost) “awesome”

  • Yearly Letdown

    Yeah I’m at least enjoying the D

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

      Me too! Makes me wonder where they were the rest of the season.

  • http://twitter.com/MizzouZoulogy Zoulogy

    This reminds me a lot of the New Orleans game.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Nice copper!

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

    Guess that’s why we activated him off of practice squad this week

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

    The OL seems like if they don’t shoot themselves in the foot (false starts/holdings) that they’re pretty good.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Yeah I’m surprised with the line today

  • CrowheartButte

    How many times has charles touched the ball?

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

      17 — 16 rushes and 1 pass.

    • BurtGummer44

      16 rushes, 1 pass

    • Chiefswatch

      more than 2010 seems like lol

  • Chiefswatch

    funny that it takes Daboll four games to realize that Cassel is so terrible it is best to treat the game like Denver did last year

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

      If he really learned the lesson and keeps it up this year, they MIGHT stand a chance. If he gets bored later and lets him start passing, then they’ll revert.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Yeah Charles may have to break Larry Johnson’s carrying record since cassel can’t throw.

    • BurtGummer44

      Charles will never survive that.

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

    2nd & goal from the 20. Keep shooting themselves in the foot.

    6 yards away from leading for first time in the season, then false start, and 8 yard loss.

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

    Chiefs ought to just run a screen here and kick the FG. Another pick by Cassel would be a big moral-killer.

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

      Nah, it will be a draw. 3rd & long are almost always draws for KC

    • BurtGummer44

      You’d think an int down here would have to be the last straw.

    • Chiefswatch

      if they are honestly worried about him throwing a pick this season is lost

  • Chiefswatch

    I just dont know why they are rolling with a QB they no longer trust to throw the ball….it makes zero sense

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

      Contract? Are they afraid to spend money for him to sit on the bench.

      • Jim Harper

        No because most of his money was frontloaded.

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

          Well then I don’t know why

    • CrowheartButte

      Agree ..Big Time!!!

  • ladner morse

    If all your going to do is run – why not Quinn?

  • Yearly Letdown

    If you can’t trust your QB then try someone else

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

    Still can’t lead a game. BAL also gets the ball to start 2nd half.

  • chiefx22

    It’s a sad state when you need to outgain the other team by 200 yards just to make it to overtime

  • BurtGummer44

    If you’re just gonna run the ball, why not just run the wildcat, or use the old wishbone offense.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Might as well just run a friggin wildcat.

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

      Bring in extra OL as eligible receivers, give more blocking.

  • Chiefswatch

    four passes and one was an interception..

    • Bizoza

      Atleast our D has made Flacco look almost (not quite though) as pathetic as Cassel

  • Bizoza

    pulling the old “hang with them for the first half, get blown out in the second half” i see

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

      That was my thought. Especially since they start with the ball in the 2nd half. The way the D is playing, it will probably be a pick-six by Cassel that gives them the lead.

  • Yearly Letdown

    D has stepped it up at least

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

      Is the D better, or are the Ravens just not that good on offense this year? I haven’t seen them play.

      • Chiefswatch

        they have been great of O middle of the road on D

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

          So KC’s D is actually performing.

  • BurtGummer44

    Dropped balls are killing the Ravens.

  • http://twitter.com/MizzouZoulogy Zoulogy

    Personally, I want to see what Brady can do.

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

    Houston is looking good.

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

      Any chance he can pass the ball?

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

    Tied 3-3. BAL gets the ball to start 2nd half. You have yet to lead this season, why not take a shot?

  • Yearly Letdown

    Come on happy with 3-3?!

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

      It’s either that, or they’re afraid of a pick-6 from cassel.

  • BurtGummer44

    The Chiefs might as well sign Vince Young, and hire Barry Switzer as an Offensive Consultant and just run the offense that won OU a National Championship in 1985.

    This offense is a freaking joke.

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

    Can KC take the lead in regulation?

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

    Behind the WR.

  • AKChieffan

    As I watch the game a bitter-sweet thought came to mind, if we win this game, Pioli and his staff might think there is hope with Cassel as QB. So we will see him for another 3 games before considering replacing him. Cassel though is playing with more passion, I believe it’s because of the comments fom the fans on AA. KC star is now voicing concerns of Cassel as QB, again I tink it’s because of the fans and staff of AA. We do make a diffference !

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

      Cassel will play this season until he’s injured. And handing off the ball 32 times in the first half will keep him protected.

    • Chiefswatch

      yea cassel will have to throw two more interceptions in this game to be pulled I think. If we some how win on the back of the defense and legs of jamaal, we are stuck with cassel for a while

      • akchieffan

        Call it Beer Google not with chicks, but QB.Are they drinking beer up there?

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

    Pull out gun. Shoot foot.

  • CrowheartButte

    If we could only go in at halftime up 6-3, they will never catch us!!!

    • Chiefswatch

      lol

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

    If only games were won by yardage and not points.

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

    THE PUNTER!

  • AKChieffan

    he doesnt have the leg

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

      Then try a hail mary

  • Chiefswatch

    lol a punt? just end the half with a play you idiots.

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

      Really, if it’s a touchback, it’s a change of what 20 yards?

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

    Might as well as just not come out after half-time. 4th & 1. 12 seconds left. 1-3 on the season. Over 200 minutes of time trailing. And you send in the punter.

    That’s not a decision winning teams & coaches make.

  • BurtGummer44

    No guts, no glory.

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

    I think that should seal RAC’s fate. Can’t even take a shot (FG or hail mary)

  • chiefx22

    Cassel and Crennel need to go. Crennel has taken over as the guy that needs to leave first. What are you scared of? The Ravens will score with 3 seconds left to go from their own 40?

  • Chiefswatch

    I think this is proving that Pioli is telling Crennel that he is playing Cassel no matter what. This is Crennel’s way of playing Cassel without playing Cassel

    • AkChieffan

      I agree and been saying that for a while now

  • Miles Yi

    Chiefs have 179 yards rushing, averaging 5.3 yards per carry. That’s with a -2 in turnover differential. As painful as this is, I gotta say, the game plan is working. Does Cassel suck? Yes. Have the Chiefs lost confidence in him? Yes. But it’s 3-3 against the RAVENS! I was expecting about a 3 touchdown deficit at the half.

    • Bizoza

      Gotta remember, the Ravens will be making adjustments during the half that we wont be able to keep up with since Romeo is busy doing the HC DC thing that has kept him from making the right calls

  • BurtGummer44

    If I’m the Ravens Def coordinator, I put 8 in the box and double dog dare the Chiefs to throw.

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

    WOW! I thought he was down.

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

    Copper is killing it today.

  • Yearly Letdown

    37 passing yards. Funny.

  • Miles Yi

    Copper has long been our best special teamer, and now he’s picking up the slack from Jalil Brown, who has been stellar the past few games! And Andrew Jones continues his great, season-long special teams play.

  • BurtGummer44

    Special Teams and Defense has to win this game, as the offense is playing with a severe handicap.

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

    Ok so KC gets a turnover. Will it be holding or false start that kills this drive?

  • Yearly Letdown

    Omg cassel what a floater limp wrist

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

      A floater that the WR has to go to the ground to get.

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

    There have been 3 passes now that Bowe has had to go to the ground to catch. Another one was behind him. Not good when you’ve only thrown 8 passes (not counting the spike.)

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

    Fumble.

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

    KC STILL CAN’T LEAD IN THE GAME.

  • BurtGummer44

    NFL Football Follies!

  • Yearly Letdown

    LMAO what the hell

  • Sportsfan101

    Seriously??

  • Frank

    Cassel is the biggest joke….

  • chiefx22

    Cassel has to go! 13 turnovers in 5 games!

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

    The way KC keeps shooting themselves in the foot I’m surprised there isn’t a global bullet shortage.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Cassel forgot the football

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

    This is what pisses me off. HUGE mentally stupid play. Then camera shoots the bench and everybody is just sitting there like they’re just enjoying the weather.

  • chiefx22

    Cassel this half has had 2 bad passes, and threw to a guy that was obviously covered. Then he topped it off with a fumble. HE SUCKS!!!! QUINN! I don’t care how bad Quinn is. Send a message

  • AKChieffan

    That completely deflated the Chiefs now

    • NOT-U

      but it added more air to the Cassel must go crowd

      • AKChieffan

        God I hope so…… Hated the trade for him, still hate having him

  • http://twitter.com/MizzouZoulogy Zoulogy

    Cassel kills all momentum! Pioli and Crennel are boneheads.

  • Frank

    Without Cassel we’d be at least 3-1

  • chiefx22

    It is TRULY amazing how bad Cassel is. AMAZING!!!

  • Miles Yi

    That was such a momentum changer. Agreed: put in Quinn. You can argue that the fumble was Lilja’s fault but it doesn’t matter. We need a change.

    • AKChieffan

      that would prove Pioli wrong though about QBs

  • AKChieffan

    Pioli you’re doing a heck of a job

  • Yearly Letdown

    Now the D just mails it in. I don’t blame them. Why bust you’re butt only to have cassel screw it up.

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

    I was thinking the Chiefs lost the game when they punted to end the first half. Then after the fumble I thought “Ok, maybe not.” Looks like I was right.

  • Miles Yi

    D. Johnson is still playing!

  • chiefx22

    If turning the ball over 2.6 times PER GAME doesn’t get you bench, then I guess I’m elligable to play QB for the Chiefs

  • CrowheartButte

    Now we’re in trouble – 6 – 3

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

    KC gets fumble, goes 29 yards and fumbles. BAL takes that fumble and goes 70+ yards for a FG.

  • chiefx22

    Pioli is doing a great job. He’s put together a team that moves the ball and plays solid Defense. (Ranked 5th in Off, 13th on Def) Pioli needs to take the elevator down to the field and tell Crennel “Either you bench that guy or you’re fired” And if he doesn’t do that, then Hunt needs to tell Pioli to do that or he is fired.

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

      Piloi is the one keeping Cassel in the game. Why would he tell Crennel to bench him?

    • AKChieffan

      I disagree Pioli sucks, he put this entire team together, and his ego will never let him admit he was wrong about Cassel. He has blunder after blunder, trades and drafts, contract nego. Personal eval. He got to go too

  • Jesse o

    Can’t spell Cassel without ASS!

    • AKChieffan

      Thats why I call him a donkey! Because he looks like an ass, and makes the teams look like one too

  • Sportsfan101

    How in the F@#* do you fumble the ball on the one doing a QB sneak?? I mean god damn Cassel..

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

      Ask Rivers.

  • chiefx22

    Cassel took the field…..BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Yearly Letdown

    Unless Quinn is hurt this is inexcusable.

  • chiefx22

    I’m pretty sure the Cassel backers have jumped off his bandwagon. Cassel’s bandwagon is now as empty as his hands are when trying a QB sneak.

    • NOT-U

      cASSel is off the Cassel bandwagon

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

    Looks like BAL finally figured out to make Cassel beat them. Starting to stop the run.

  • Yearly Letdown

    If you don’t trust the guy and why should you, then bench him damn it!!!

  • Miles Yi

    Anyone wish we had Kyle Orton now?

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

      I’ve wished for that since the day the season ended.

    • chiefx22

      At the time I said not signing Orton was the biggest mistake of the offseason

    • Jim Harper

      no

    • Jim Harper

      If you check out the stats you will find Orton and Cassel have almost identical ratings. Orton was lousy in the red zone and was not rated as high as Cassel.

  • Sportsfan101

    Stay with the game plan but please pull Cassel now…..

  • chiefx22

    For the first time ever, I might stop watching Chiefs games until they stop putting in Cassel. I have season tix from California and go to 6 home games a year. Not if they keep putting in Cassel. Quinn must be so bad that he throws 2 INT’s per pass for him not to be out there at this point.

    • AKChieffan

      I took me a lot to put the game on today, but I can’t help myself, I love my Chiefs

    • mikeinsd

      where u from in cali bro i live in SD myself

  • Yearly Letdown

    Better be some heads rolling and soon.

  • Bigchief

    Get cassel the fuck out of there

    • AKChieffan

      Pioli Brought him here, and loves him

  • http://twitter.com/MizzouZoulogy Zoulogy

    We WILL lose this game if Cassel is not benched.

  • Chiefswatch

    Jamaal and the D do not deserve this.

  • NOT-U

    no cassel…please…no cassel

  • Yearly Letdown

    Chiefs D is playing so good

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

    This reminds me of the game in Indy in 2006 playoffs. Flowers needed to take that one to the house for KC to have a chance.

  • Sportsfan101

    Please don’t put Cassel back in!! Please???

  • Miles Yi

    Wow. Flowers is incredible.

    • AKChieffan

      Remember the good ol days when wehad Carr on the other side?

  • AKChieffan

    Another dose of Cassel…..ahhhhh

  • chiefx22

    Cassel back in…..BOOOOOOOOOO
    They now have 9 guys in the box

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

      I don’t know why you don’t put 10. It only takes 1 guy to cover Bowe. IF Cassel throws, you know he’s only looking at DBo.

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

    Are you serious? Timeout Cassel?

  • chiefx22

    I will be there against Oakland and I WILL boo every snap Cassel takes.

  • Chiefswatch

    F Pioli, F Crennel, F Cassel.

    • AKChieffan

      Hey Chiefsx22 thinks Pioli is doing a great job, I think this all falls of Pioli

  • BurtGummer44

    I just don’t understand this team’s Cassel fixation. You know he’s gonna single handly destroy any momentum created by the Flowers pick…………but they put him back out there once again.

  • Chiefswatch

    HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAAHHAAHAAHAHAH

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

      Breathe man. Don’t need you passing out.

  • NOT-U

    Way to go Cassel!!!!!

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

    Cassel makes Bowe jump for the pass again. And the fans are chanting “We Want Quinn”

  • AKChieffan

    Cassel Wahoooo never disappoints

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

    If your WR routinely has to either jump or dive to field your passes, then you’re not doing a good job of passing. Things like tipped interceptions can be expected.

  • http://twitter.com/MizzouZoulogy Zoulogy

    Bowe is leaving after this season. He’s fed up.

      It’s Disqus………..a horrible system.

  • BurtGummer44

    The band should play “yakety sax” (theme song from Benny Hill) if Cassel comes back out on the field.

    • AKChieffan

      that is funny

  • Sportsfan101

    God damn it… If they don’t pull him now then I don’t what the F*** to say.. He keeps focusing on one guy when throws the ball.

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

      Plus 2 fumbles attributed to him today. He’s turned the ball over 4 times today.

  • cheifx22

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO this is the worst coaching job EVER!!!!! Cassel for three more turnovers!!!! 14 in 5 games.!!!!! Are you serious!? Are you SERIOUS.

  • tm1946

    I’m back, Perry Mason has some good re-runs from 1957. This game is a comedy of errors. Pass hit Bowe in the helmet….priceless.

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

      It hit a JUMPING Bowe in the helmet. It was that high tha the had to jump just to have it hit his helmet.

  • cheifx22

    At what point do the defensive players start taking cheap shots on Cassel to make sure the coach can’t play him?

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

      Just hide his helmet.

  • Yearly Letdown

    This is hilarious. Or pathetic. I can’t decide

    • Chiefswatch

      both

  • NOT-U

    I honestly don’t think I can blame Crennel except that he must not want to stand up either. Cassel has out lasted 2 coaches…something tells me the coach is not really running the game.

    • Chiefswatch

      so true brother

    • AKChieffan

  • CrowheartButte

    the defense should be beating the shit out of cassel in between plays!!

    • CrowheartButte

      Chief’s defense

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

        I bet BAL is too afraid to sack him, because they want to keep him in the game.

    • cheifx22

      Take a cheap shot as he comes off the field. IF you notice, the Ravens aren’t hitting him…they want him to play

    Our poor poor Defense. Trying so hard and every time they put Cassel in its a slap to their face

  • AKChieffan

    Bright spot is Huston

  • Sportsfan101

    The Defense is off the chain today.. We are a good team we just need a QB…. Please don’t put Cassel back in..

      I keep telling people. Cassel will take every snap unless he’s hurt or Pioli is no longer the GM.

    Clark Hunt is lucky he lives in Dallas

    • Kansascitychefs

      That’s where the problem lies

  • tm1946

    nice throw by cassel i think the frist one of the day to

    • NOT-U

      Not a nice throw by cassel just a damn good catch

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

        It was a nice throw. It was high because if it wasn’t defender could have made a play. Him having 1 good pass doesn’t mean he should stay in the game.

  • Miles Yi

    Give credit where credit is due – great pass by Cassel, great catch by Baldwin! Oops. Just negated by a terrible pass.

    • chiefx22

      Great catch by Baldwin….it was not a good pass.

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

        What would have made it better? If it was lower, defender knocks it down or intercepts it. Just because he has one decent pass doesn’t mean he should still be in the game.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Jesus

    good time for a run or pick

  • Chiefswatch

    and punt time…

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

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

    I think in future Chiefs games, we should place bets on which number will be higher: points, penalties or turnovers.

  • BurtGummer44

    At this point it’s pretty obvious there’s nothing Cassel can do to get pulled. Maybe Nagata will do us a favor and fall on his throwing arm.

    How horrible are we? LOL

  • AKChieffan

    I hear you begging chiefx22, but Casel is here until Pioli says different

  • Chase

    Brady will find some way to make it worse.

    • chiefx22

      impossible. Literally impossible. Up to that point, Cassel was on pace to set a record for worst season as a QB.

  • BurtGummer44

    Looked like he took a helmet to the chest from a 340lb man.

  • Sportsfan101

    Everybody keep there fingers crossed…… And pray that he’s out for the game…

    • tm1946

      Absolutely not. I never want any player hurt for any reason, even jokingly.

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

    If somehow KC wins, it will be a long week for RAC & Pioli

  • tm1946

    Did that look that hard a hit? Cassel if nothing else is one tough guy.

  • matt

    is this 4 down territory guys

      Not when it’s 4th & 10 or whatever it was.

  • BurtGummer44

    Quinn looked pretty confident and decisive.

  • cheifx222

    Cassel just saw his last play of the year. Quinn is on target and a lot more arm strength

    • AKChieffan

      I agree, he looked great in preseason

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

      Nope. Cassel will be back as soon as docs clear him. Probably next week.

  • matt

    we have to now at least consider quinn

  • Sportsfan101

    Cassel is done!!!!!

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

      He’ll be back as soon as he passes the concussion test. Maybe as early as next week.

  • Chiefswatch

    too little too late. Leaving Cassel in after four turnovers is inexcusable.

    • matt

      not too late if we win

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

    I remember an interview with some backup QB in the 80s. He had such a good record as a backup because he was so different than the starter. Teams would gameplan for the starter and he’d get hurt and the backup would come in and win the game.

    When he started, though, he lost every game. I think that happens more than we realize.

  • Yearly Letdown

    Go D

  • CrowheartButte

    what’s the deal with these picks, they have been illegal for years?

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

      Why have DMc pick? The smallest guy on the field.

      Almost all teams have some amount of picks, they’re just not as obvious as KC’s.

    At least maybe Daboll can use the whole playbook with Quinn

    interception

    FUCK

    shoot

  • NOT-U

    Has anybody looked at the Cassel reply? I see no “head injury”

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

      He was out on the ground. Not sure what happened before that. But he was definitely out on the ground. If you’re going to fake an injury it would be after one of the 4 turn overs. Not after an inoccuous play.

  • BurtGummer44

    I don’t see us getting the ball back.

  • Chiefswatch

    FUCK ALL OF THEM> FUCK DABOLL> FUCK PIOLI> FUCK CRENNEL. OUR DEFENSE PLAYED THEIR HEARTS OUT. JAMAAL PLAYED HIS HEART OUT. THESE SONS OF BITCHES. THEY ALL NEED TO BE FIRED. FUCK THEM ALL

  • Yearly Letdown

    One more stop

    • Chiefswatch

      wont happen there are cosmic forces at work here

  • AKChieffan

    Need a turn over

  • AKChieffan

    I think single handly Cassel reallypossibly lost this game for us.

    • NOT-U

      No question about it

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

      Worst case it’s a tie game if he doesn’t fumble going in to the end zone. Possibly even leading.

  • matt

    man i hope cassel never comes back

    • matt

      not that i want a serious injury

    • BurtGummer44

      He’d look good in a Raiders uniform.

      • matt

        my answer is pick 6 palmer

  • Yearly Letdown

    That’s it folks.

  • AKChieffan

    He really is that bad, think about what he did today

  • Chiefswatch

    Thank you Cassel. Thank you Crennel. Thank you Daboll for going with a QB sneak, thank you Pioli you piece of shit. I hope you all get fired rather soon. I fucking hate you all. Wish only the worst in your NFL careers.

  • BurtGummer44

    Ravens are lucky we started the most inept QB in the NFL.

  • AKChieffan

    We have a chance, Could imagine we get the ball back, quinn pushes for a TD. Wow that wouold say a lot more than us and the Media

  • Chiefswatch

    We beat the shit out of them but we had Cassel fuck it all up for us. GREAT

  • Justin R Groth

    Sorry but no risk no reward

  • Brandon Gilmore

    The refs ruined this game two touchdowns called back one on mccluster as a pick idk how many times i seen that done and not called and them trying to save flacco when we should have had a fumble touchdown come on refs you screwed us

  • Ewan the Chiefs Fan

    Well look at it this way. If our qb has truly changed and makes the most of his opportunity, and our Def plays like this, we actually might win another game. That could be a bad thing if you want a qb in the draft.

  • Yearly Letdown

    To me Pioli and cassel take all the blame for this one. Crennel had the D ready to play

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

      Except that RAC isn’t just the D-Coordinate. He’s the head coach. The offense is his responsibility as well.

  • AKChieffan

    Can the fraont office be so stupid to not recognize Cassel’s mistakes

  • HillBillyChief

    Gave it away.

  • Chiefswatch

    Truly they hardest loss I can remember. Truly undeserved. Those poor guys. One piece of shit QB has ruined their whole season.

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

      The 2003 playoff loss to Indy was much worse. Morton alligator arms it, and Priest fumbles it, and KC loses it’s home field advantage.

      Or the game of the kicker who should not be named is also much worse.

      This game sucked. But after the first 4 games this season, it doesn’t hurt because the offense did about what we expected.

  • Ewan the Chiefs Fan

    I hate to be optimistic, but the Def really made me proud today. I want to believe in Quinn. The schedule is so soft from here on out. There is still some potential here.

    • Chiefswatch

      yea we just might get to 8-8 and f up our draft position for a QB

      • tm1946

        Do not like playing for a draft pick, first not that many college QB out there and who in their right mind would want/desire/dream of Pioli drafing a QB anytime before the 3 round.

  • Echo6

    Did anybody see the difference in arm strength. Quinn is way better.

  • AKChieffan

    Quinn looked better over the preseason

  • matt

    after todays performance, this season isn’t over yet

    • Ewan the Chiefs Fan

      Thats what I’m saying. They could still win the division. If the qb isn’t losing games for them.

  • cheifx222

    If it took this loss to cost Cassel his job, it’s well worth it. Even if we still loss the game, I would have liked to have seen Quinn come out for one more series to prove to the coaches he’s better.

    • Tribal Rage

      cassel faked the injury

      • matt

        who cares hes gone

  • cheifx222

    We now have outgained the opponents 5-0

  • Jesse o

    I would rather lose by 40 then lose like that. On numerous occasions we gave them the game. Lets see Quinn play a whole game.good game defense.

  • Tribal Rage

    ANOTHER BRILLIANT LOSS….JUST WHEN I DIDNT THINK WE COULD FIND NEW WAYS TO LOSE WE RUN 50 TIMES AND LET CASSEL THROW 10 AND STILL 2 PICKS. I APPRECIATE CASSEL FAKING THE INJURY SO PIOLI COULD SAVE FACE. IM SURE RAC WAS BEGGING HIM TO REPLACE HIM. I GUESS THE ALTERNATIVE WAS STARTING HIM AND NOT ALLOWING HIM TO THROW. THIS IS OUR TEAM, THIS IS THE WAY IT IS. HLARK CUNT HAS NO BALLS AND WILL NEVER FIRE PIOLI. RAC HAS 1 MORE YEAR NO MATTER WHAT AND DONT EXPECT US TO MAKE A MOVE ON A QB IN THE DRAFT EARLY….WE WILL TRADE BACK…DRAFT 1 IN THE 2ND ROUND BECAUSE WE GOT MORE DRAFT PICKS. THE PIOLI WAY. CASSEL WILL START NEXT SEASON AGAIN, BOWE AND DORSEY WILL BE GONE, ALBERT WILL BE FRANCHISED.

    EVEN IF THE WORLD DOESNT END IN DEC 2012, THE CHIEFS HOPES AND DREAMS WILL HAVE CERTAINLY BY THEN.

    YES CAPS MEANS IM MAD

    • tm1946

      Take a deep breath, Bill Cowher said before the game the Chiefs would still got 10-6. This looks bad but there are wins available when other teams think you are so much crap and overlook you. There is still time to save Pioli, Crennel, and Cassels careers.

      • CrowheartButte

        we might get better and surprise all of us, but we are not winning 10 out of 11! Remember they only let cowher out of the facility on the weekends!!

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

      You must be the most amazing doctor in the world to be able to tell that Cassel does not have a concussion from your couch.

      If you want to challenge his numbers, or reads, by all means go for it. But don’t say he’s unprofessional. He’s put his body through more punishment than anyone on this board, and not just that hit.

      I don’t want him starting for KC, but I’m not stupid enough to say that he’s faking, or not tough. He’s done more athletically than anyone on here.

      • Tribal Rage

        You give me a logically explanation why he is still in the game and I wont call bullshit. There isnt an organization in the NFL that wouldve “stuck” with their guy unless the coaches strings were being pulled by the GM. Cassel throw another bad pass resulting in a pick and the next series takes a hit and leaves the game? Chiefs fans aren’t that lucky or we would be winning games. There are no coincidences the worlds that would measure up to the convenience of that injury…..I call bullshit….the hit didnt appear that big…

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

          So when are you strapping on the pads and letting the 2 BAL DL hit you in the same way, since it wasn’t a big hit?

          Logically, it’s about money. You don’t pay a guy starting salary and sit him on the bench. Same thing happened with Grbac & Gannon. Grbac was the higher paid QB and he played when he wasn’t hurt.

          If you want to talk about Logic, why the big-wigs tell Cassel to fake an injury. And further, why would Cassel do that? What would he gain by faking an injury? Why now? He’s been boo’d for quite a while now. I

          If he wanted to fake an injury, he would more likely fake it after fumbling at the 1. Claim someone stepped on his foot, or his finger was jammed or whatever.

          But don’t sit on your couch and watch a replay and say “Oh that didn’t look too bad. He’s faking it because Crennel didn’t want to put him back out there.”

          • Tribal Rage

            Hey its all good…its an opinion and Im entitled…just like the Cassel apologists have theirs. BTW…i wasnt sitting on the couch, I was on my knees begging for him to not get up. Yea…its like that…Fan for over 2 decades…thousands in Chiefs gear…thousands on tickets and flights…eat drink sleep this team…just like a lot of fans…we deserve better…I suggested this injury faking as a real possible scenario…a flop in the game of play…I hope he’s fine and has a wonderful life…I do not want him as my quarterback. My apologies to the apologists

  • BurtGummer44

    I fully expect the Chiefs to return Cassel as the starter as soon as he’s medically able. Pioli hangs his hat on being the on to stumble upon Brady, which was really just blind luck. He’s out to prove he can catch lightening in a bottle twice. His hubris has no limits.

    • tm1946

      I agree. It’s not as if Cassel was pulled for bad play. So why would he lose his job because of injury?

      Funny thing, even Bellicheck admitted if they knew Brady was that good, they wouldn’t have waited until 6th round to draft him.
