Chiefs vs. Bucs: Picking The Game

The Brady Quinn era is about to begin in Kansas City and for the players and the fans, more uncertainty awaits.

How long will the Quinn era be? Will he finally show the potential that got him drafted in the first round or will he show why he hasn’t started a game since 2009?

The answer to those questions could lead to plenty of excitement or misery for fans of the Chiefs.

And it all starts Sunday when the Chiefs travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Bucs.

Despite doing some things well last week, the Chiefs are still playing like crap. Mental mistakes and turnovers are killing this young, talented team. The addition of Quinn to the occasion makes the situation even more volition and uncertain. One gets the feeling the entire organization is teetering on the bring of compete disaster. There are calls for Scott Pioli’s job. Crenne’s too. Eric Winston is complaining about fans in the locker room. The starting QB is on the shelf. It’s bad, bad mojo in KC right now.

Quinn could be the tipping point. If he plays as poorly or worse than Cassel, the Chiefs could be heading to a top five pick, which is good or bad depending on your point of view. It could lead to the firing of Crennel and maybe even Pioli.

If Quinn wins? It all might be salvaged.

In picking this week’s game, it would appear the experts are expecting more fire and brimstone in KC.

Let’s take a look at who is (and isn’t) picking the Chiefs.


Only Mike Golic has picked the Chiefs. The rest of the experts, including the fans, are going with the home team.


Accuscore has the Bucs winning in 54% of the simulations. They do think the score could be close. On average, Tampa wins 20.2 to 19.

Madden 13:

The Madden 13 simulation has the Bucs coming out on top 30-17. Brady Quinn plays pretty well, completing 14 of 29 passes for 204 yards, a TD and no picks. Charles runs for 123 yards and a TD on 22 carries. But the KC D can’t stop the Bucs offense.

    by listening to romeo’s press conference it sounds like if they told romeo last second that cassel was a go then he would surely start him

  • metalchief

    luckly, it’s just a stupid video game and the so called “analysis” don’t know what they’re talking about and the REAL chiefs will go out their, take care of buisiness and come out with a win. GO CHIEFS!!!! (not trying to be cocky or anything it’s just…well…WE OUT PLAYED THE RAVENS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD WE SHOULD WIN THIS GAME!!!) C’MON KC! 2 – 4 HEADING INTO THE BYE!!!

    We will not lose this game. We are without question a stronger team both on defense and offense. Without shit bird Cassel giving points to the other team we will watch a completely different game. Will not surprise me if we win by 21.

    I had a fealing last week we would give the Ravens all they could handle. This week I say the Chiefs show TB how good this team is. Quinn goes off and not only pushes the ball down field but to multiple guys.

    I honestly hope and would love to see if by some act of GOD that if they say casselno was a go right before game time that EVERY SINGLE chiefs fan in attendance would stand immediately up and walk straight out of the stadium before the game even starts. Not saying I don’t hope and and believe we still have a chance to win this game but to tell this administration this bs is over with period. See what we have in other most likely better options than the weak armed happy happy feet throw to bowe no matter how many of the other teams players are breathing down his neck (cassel). Stop buying tickets until something is done no merchandise no nothing we fund this team with our dollars and other teams wouldn’t dare to do this type of nonsense to almost any other franchise.

    On the brink of disaster? I think we’ve gone over the brink this year. If our D can start playing with some consistency and the intensity it showed last week we might be able to salvage this season.

    Brady, just take care of the ball!

    Why do the experts think we can’t stop the Bucs offense? Tampa has the worst offense in the league. 30 points? Really? Only if Quinn throws two pick sixes and we fumble inside our 10 yard line. Oops, no jinxes.

    Pioli is not getting fired, even if we go 1-15. Crennel maybe but not Pioli and even Crennel is highly unlikely.

    Brady plays good enough, the D stays tough, our running game does well even though Tampa has a good run D and we finally get to lead most if not all of this game for an easy victory.

    Chiefs 31, Tampa 10
