There are 79, 451 seats at New Arrowhead Stadium. Every home game, Chiefs faithful fill the stands to be part of the “home game” experience. They hi-five with fellow fans when it goes right and console each other when it goes wrong. For the rest of us not in attendance, we do it virtually. Here. Welcome to the Kansas City Chiefs Live Game Thread.

Here we are, Addicts! It’s been a week since we’ve seen the Kansas City Chiefs in action when they dropped their preseason opener to the New Orleans Saints in the Big Easy. Well, the boys in red and gold aren’t on the road this week; they’re back in Arrowhead where they belong.

As I mentioned in “5 Keys to Victory,” this will be the first chance the Chiefs Kingdom will have to see Alex Smith and Andy Reid, live and in person. Although the likeliness of Arrowhead being filled to capacity is slim to none, those who are in attendance need to be as loud as possible to help out the defense as much as possible.

For those of us watching at home (I’ll be in my living room watching on 70 inches of viewing pleasure), we have the Live Thread. Discuss every play, in real time, as it happens with your favorite Arrowhead Addict writers and fellow Chiefs fans.

If you can’t make it to the game in person, this is the place to be.

Scroll down to join the action.

Enjoy the game, and GO CHIEFS!

    I hope Knile Davis shows his stuff! We need another weapon badly, can’t put it all on JC. Can’t wait to see the 1′s against one of the best offenses in the league–and I hope Alex Smith goes all out against his former employer….show em why they messed up AS!!! Let’s go Chiefs!!!!

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

    Let’s get it!

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

    I want to see Dontari Poe eat Colin Kaepernick and then go over to the sideline and throw him up on Jim Harbaugh.

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

      Too aggressive?

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        I am eating. that’s a visual I didn’t need lol

  • Justin R Groth

    Stanzi meet and greet with Harbraugh

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

      Lobbying for a job, probably.

      • Justin R Groth

        Kinda smart you know.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    this is a big test for the Chiefs. SF is a super bowl contender.

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

      Agreed. Go get em’ boys. Like to see them still show up even without Jamaal.

  • Justin R Groth

    Smith looks like the guy from the notebook.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Toub looks like he is doing a good job with our special teams.

    Jeff Allen got beat.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    This is a Todd Haley move. and he did it with a poor offensive line.

  • Lyle Graversen

    SF front 7 is STOUT.

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

    Nice spin, Knile.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      good point. its’ not like the line really pushed SF back.

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

    That was a cool play but Justin Smith wasn’t fooled at all.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Kelce and Gray with drops, let’s see what you got defense.

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

      Lame. That is a first down if Gray catches it.

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

    Come on, Kelce

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Alex Smith is doing his job.

    • Lyle Graversen

      truth

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

    It is stupefying how much better pocket-awarness Smith has than Cassel. Cassel always crumbled like a ton of bricks.

    • Lyle Graversen

      The thing with Cassel that used to drive me nuts is how his eyes went down as soon as he scrambled. Alex is always looking down field.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Cassel was a sack waiting for a sacker

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

    Offensive line getting challenged. Branden Albert was getting driven back pretty good on that pass to Kelce.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Ughhhh!!!!!

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      With the style of defense we are running, we are going to give up more big plays. We are also going to make more big plays.

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

    Horrible. Over pursuing

  • Justin R Groth

    Agrssive D? What happens to contain.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Dodged a bullet there

  • Justin R Groth

    Good recovery.

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

    Robinson got smoked, man. Bad.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    that was a TD SF left on the field

  • Lyle Graversen

    Ok Alex, time to open things up a little. Let’s get Bowe involved.

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

    Chiefs need to loosen up a bit. Playing a little tight. Deep breath.

  • Justin R Groth

    Do demps is making the team huh.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Wait, what was that? You mean to tell me you can take a kickoff all the way to the end zone, and it counts as a TD? Why haven’t we done that in recent years?

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

    Now we know why Demps has been back there.

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

    Where is DD? He is always talking about how important special teams are. He must be loving this.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      He is at the game.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Dave Toub is the MVP of the preseason so far.

  • Jared Watson

    Ok special teams, one game at a time, one game at a time.

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

    #Chiefs went out and hired the best special teams coach in the NFL. It is showing so far. Props to Clark. I am sure Dave Toub wasn’t cheap.

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

    Copper got away with a sneaky hold. Probably didn’t need to do it either. Lucky.

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

    Kaepernick is done? What a bunch of bullshit.

  • Lyle Graversen

    McCoy in, okay defense, fresh meat.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I hope we let Chase Daniels get some time with the 1′s

    • Lyle Graversen

      I want to see Alex find Bowe a couple times first.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        I agree. Finding any WR would be new for him. lol

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

      Chase Daniel. No S.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        I knew that, it just comes out when I type…. old age. lol

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

    49ers taking Kaep out really sucks ass for the Chiefs. Pretty much anything the D does now has to be taken with a grain of salt. I am not freaked out by one long run given up. Cutbacks happen but not getting to see them go against a starter for a few drives sucks.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      I was hoping they would keep all their 1′s in for the first quarter at least

  • Lyle Graversen

    Well that sucked, was that even their #1s?

  • Jason Collins

    I think Cassel is back in red

  • Jared Watson

    There’s a totally different feel of the offense when JC isn’t in there. We need players to step up and help fill that void.

  • Justin R Groth

    Now I’m getting worried about wrs.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Poe is becoming a beast right before our eyes.

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

    3rd QB? Does anyone know SF’s personnel well enough to know if their entire starting group is out on offense and D?

    • Lyle Graversen

      Trent made a comment about them letting each QB get some reps with some of the first string.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Knock on wood, I think Davis is running well against a really stout defense. That OLB had him and he just smoked him to the outside.

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

    That was a horrendous throw.

    • Jason Collins

      CK overthrew a wide open WR. He was 1-4 for -3 yards. He looked good as well.. Turd

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

        YEah. Kaep should have thrown a TD pass. Dude was wide open.

  • Bizoza

    looks like we can cut or trade all of our WRs while Smith is in town

  • Lyle Graversen

    On the bright side, the defense is dominating the SF second string offense. That bodes well for the opener against the Jaguars offense. Am I right?

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

      Some starters are still in there. I saw Boone, the guard. He is first string.

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

    Hampton, the RB, is next to last on the RB depth chart.

  • Jordan

    Can’t see the game could I just get a basic overall feel of the game assessment at this point?

    • Lyle Graversen

      Special teams and Dontari Poe have looked really good.

      Alex Smith and the Chiefs offense without Charles has looked very Meh…..

    • Lyle Graversen

      Kaepernick out after only one drive, so it doesn’t have a real game feel.

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

    49ers starting offensive line is still in there. Looks like Harbaugh is trying to evaluate his skill position backups.

  • Caleb Wylie

    Special teams arr looking amazing! But Im not liking the offense performance overall so far

  • Jason Seibel

    Hey Addicts, sorry I’m late. Took me a bit to get the wings going and I was on tape delay! How bout Q. Demps???

  • Jason Seibel

    Getting back to what they were doing last week that worked!

  • Lyle Graversen

    That miss by Baldwin was AWFUL!!!!

    • Jason Seibel

      COME ON MAN!!!!!!!!!

      • Lyle Graversen

        I’m about done with Baldwin.

    • Bizoza

      Baldwin needs to get it together or get cut.

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

        Yep.

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

      Horrendous. That was a great throw.

    • Justin R Groth

      Not making an excuse but looked like he thought that lb was going to tip it up, only reason I can think of jumping like he did.

  • Jason Seibel

    Did you guys like the intro to the Live Thread?

    • Lyle Graversen

      No lie, I read it twice I liked it so much. That should be a permanent keeper for these threads.

      • Jason Seibel

        Thanks, Lyle. That’s kind of what I was going for!

  • Jason Seibel

    Great screen pass!!!!

  • Jason Seibel

    Excellent blocking on that play!

  • Jason Seibel

    Not impressed with Cyrus Gray thus far…

  • Lyle Graversen

    Granted, Davis is no JC, but the offensive problems have had a lot more to do with the passing game struggles than Davis.

  • Jason Seibel

    Protection is breaking down and inopportune times…

  • Lyle Graversen

    Akeem Jordan has flashed some to me tonight. I was thinking it was just a matter of time before Nico took that spot, but maybe not.

    • Jason Seibel

      I’m with you, Lyle. Coming with the sack and being involved in the middle of the field. He’s looked really great!

  • Lyle Graversen

    I’m not mad at Smith for that PI call. When you press guys that hard at the line, that’s going to happen sometimes.

    Jackson needs to know better than that on the roughing call.

  • Bizoza

    If the refs weren’t going to watch the game, why did they show up?

  • Jason Seibel

    It’s preseason for everybody…refs too!

  • Jason Seibel

    Way to go Tin Man!!! Late hit, my arse!

  • Jason Seibel

    Ok…well…maybe…

  • Jason Seibel

    I’m a little antsy for the Chiefs D to force a turn over!

    • Bizoza

      I am antsy for the Chiefs O to get in the game.

  • Jason Seibel

    There’s Berry!!!

  • Jason Seibel

    TWO IN A ROW!!!!!!

  • Jason Seibel

    Ok, Dunta…I like the pass break ups…let’s pick one off now!

  • Jason Seibel

    Chiefs first team going to play the whole first half? Ballsy move by Reid…

  • Lyle Graversen

    There’s the INT. This defense is going to eat up bad QBs.

    • Jason Seibel

      We’re on a delay on the NFL.com stream, Lyle! You posted that almost a minute before it happened!

      • Lyle Graversen

        My bad, I’ll wait a minute before I post.

        • Jason Seibel

          It’s all good!!!

          • Lyle Graversen

            Now I’m tempted to just start posting random crap to make you think something is about to happen.

            “OH NO PICK SIX!!!!”

            “SAFETY!!!!”

            “STATUE OF LIBERTY!!!!!”

          • Jason Seibel

            HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  • Jason Seibel

    Loving the defense tonight. Other than the 53 yarder by Gore, they’ve looked good.

  • Jason Seibel

    There it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Now let’s turn this into a TD

    • Jason Seibel

      Agreed!

  • Jason Seibel

    Turn about is fair play.

  • Jason Seibel

    Can’t go helmet to helmet!!!

  • Jason Seibel

    That would have been a TD if Bowe would have hauled that in. Good D though!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Fasano = security blanket

    • Jason Seibel

      Not a bad blanket to have though. He seems pretty sure handed thus far…knock on wood.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Our offensive line has given up too much pressure today. I know SF has a great D, but still. I want to see better.

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

      That wasn’t really their fault though. Sent more than they could block. Smith should have checked out of that play when they showed that blitz.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        It’s not that play in specific. It’s a general comment.

  • Jason Seibel

    Thus far, thank God for good D and great special teams!

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

    Chiefs rush 3 and give up a long pass from the 3rd string QB. Groan.

    • Jason Seibel

      Yeah…a bit concerning there.

      • Lyle Graversen

        It was a nice pass though.

        • Jason Seibel

          Yeah, but come on…I mean, they’ve got to a bit better than that…

  • Lyle Graversen

    Oh boy, we have an Agnew sighting.

    • Jason Seibel

      How he’s not bagging groceries this week…I don’t know…

      • Lyle Graversen

        Not only not cut, but still first guy in after starters?

  • Jason Seibel

    Nice SWAT!!!

  • Bizoza

    This Offense better get it together, JC or no JC, they need to be able to get it done.

  • Jason Seibel

    Ok, AS11! Let’s see you run this two minute drill like we know you can! Would love to see six before the half!!!

  • BWrangler

    Wow, that was a helluva bull rush by Tamba!

  • Jason Seibel

    Nice play with the blitz coming off the edge…

  • Jason Seibel

    Now call the timeout!

  • Jason Seibel

    Where is the damn protection tonight?

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Andy never paid off Tony Soprano ;)

  • Jason Seibel

    That’s the half…

  • Lyle Graversen

    Well, the people that complained about the passing game last week certainly aren’t going to be happy about that performance.

  • Jason Seibel

    Well, Addicts! What do you think? Who won the half, despite the score? What adjustments do the Chiefs need to make? Let’s hear it!!

    • Lyle Graversen

      The defenses have been equally dominant, but our special teams have been the difference.

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

        Equally dominant? I disagree. They gave up a huge run and a pass that should have been a TD and against a better QB, it would have been. KC defense got smoked by the SF first string.

        They performed ok against SF’s starting offensive line and shit-tastic QBs and RBs.

  • Bizoza

    One of the biggest problems the last few years is not making adjustments, and just going with the same garbage over and over. I hope Reid can make the adjustments to get the O looking good, and we can come out of this game with a bit more confidence than I have right now.

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

    Chiefs offense has a long way to go. Really misses Charles, Fisher struggling.

    • Lyle Graversen

      Where are the quick slants to Bowe? With JC out you have to get your best remaining player the ball!

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

        Yeah. I mean, I am sure they are trying some stuff out. But they should be smoking the SF #2 defense, even running basic shit.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Thoughts on Knile Davis? Can we win a game or two with him if Charles is banged up?

    • Lyle Graversen

      I’ve been happy with him tonight. He’s done enough against a good defensive team. It’s the passing game that has struggled.

      • Chris Tarrants

        Watching the 400 pound fat lady try to pick up the dollar she dropped at Walmart is”struggling” this passing attack tonight is horrendous and probably going to give me horrible 2012 flashbacks tonight while I sleep

  • Nicholas Holstein

    If the o-line gives alex this much time in week one we will lose to the lowly jags …

    • Jason Seibel

      Luckily Jacksonville’s D is not as good as the 49ers. Keep in mind…9ers D is one of the best in the league…

      • Nicholas Holstein

        Good thing Alex is a Runnin’ Ute,not unlike myself ; so he should be able to easily evade pressure. Go Chiefs.

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

    Alex Smith averaged 3.9 yards per pass. Not good, even with the drops.

  • Jason Seibel

    Ok, now this is what preseason is about. Let’s see how these guys fighting for a roster spot play!

  • Jason Seibel

    Come on Edgar!!!!!!

  • Jason Seibel

    Anybody think Quentin Demps doesn’t make the team?

  • BurtGummer44

    As expected, without JC the rest of the Chiefs O are at best mediocre. JC is the difference maker no ifs, ands or buts about it.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      That is a bit unfair. There is a big difference between SF’s defense and NO’s

      • Jason Seibel

        You beat me to it, Merlin. The fact that the Chiefs were able to play that first half to more a less a draw against arguably the best team in the league is a win, in my book.

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

        Yeah but SF wasn’t playing their starters the entire time. KC sputtered against their backups, even when in good field position.

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

        And he is right. Without Jamaal, KC offense was stagnate. Poor execution and dropped passes. Clear the Chiefs are hurting at WR.

        • Justin R Groth

          However I don’t think you can blame it on Jamaal being out. Knile has done well this one falls on the O-line and Matt I mean Alex smith.

  • Jason Seibel

    Damn special teams is great!!!! Andrew is right, the X-Factor has returned to Arrowhead!!!

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

    If I am Reid, I want Avery out there next week instead of Baldwin. McCluster in the slot.

    • Jason Seibel

      I agree with you there

    • Jared Watson

      It’s fine. Let Baldwin play the entire preseason so we can finally rule him out for good and move on.

    • Chris Tarrants

      I say next week we put Hemmingway in Bowes spot, Rico in baldwins spot and see if either one can fill the shoes that Baldwin should be wearing. Avery scares me because he drops a loooooot of balls

    • Bizoza

      Jon Bustwin

  • Jason Seibel

    Wow…great special teams play by the Niners! Nice tackle, Colquit!!!

    • Jason Seibel

      I’m sorry…that’s Colquitt….

  • Chris Tarrants

    Ok I understand that this is the 49ers defense we are talking about but come on give us something to get excited about here!!!! Arrrrrgh thank god for my otter box otherwise I would be needing a new phone

  • Lyle Graversen

    Andre Reed: “Man, I miss playing!”

    D-Bowe: “Suit up man, I bet you’re still better than Baldwin.”

    • Jason Seibel

      HAHAHAHAHAHA!

  • Jason Seibel

    My one month old daughter hasn’t taken her eyes off the tv since the game started.

  • Jason Seibel

    Wow….

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

    That little girl you hear screaming outside is actually just the echo of the sound Chase Daniel just made during that sack

  • Lyle Graversen

    That’s crap!

    • Lyle Graversen

      and cue the tape delay in 3,2,1……

      • Lyle Graversen

        Nothing? Should have been a safety!

        • Jason Seibel

          Should have been.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Bring in Bray! He’ll throw it down field.

    • Jason Seibel

      Yeah I’d like to see Bray!

    • Chris Tarrants

      God I hope so otherwise they are going to load up and he will view most of the game from the prone position

  • Lyle Graversen

    I think Draughn beats out Gray.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    That is one way to beat a blitz, a well timed screen

  • Chris Tarrants

    I’m going to start drinking! I think Daboll is still calling plays, up the middle, up the middle wait they won’t expect this let’s go up the middle again

  • Lyle Graversen

    Royals won again tonight, swept the double header in Detroit today.

  • Jason Seibel

    Another great stand by the D!

  • Jason Seibel

    Bray’s coming in. Let’s hope he comes out slinging!

  • Chris Tarrants

    On a brighter note Daniel had awesome accuracy tonight when we actually had time to throw

  • Lyle Graversen

    Alright, I’m going to get a jump on the post game recap. Good night all!

    • Jason Seibel

      Looking forward to reading it.

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

      Don’t Kool-Aid it up. Terrible game by the Chiefs, save special teams.

  • Jim Harper

    God damn, sonofabitch, motherfuckin Brown! Why does he keep making this team?

    • Chris Tarrants

      That’s is the question of the day

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Special Teams

  • Chris Tarrants

    Great Agnew just made the team! Just what we need

    • Jim Harper

      No, he’ll have to do more than that.

  • Jason Seibel

    Agnew…really?

  • Jason Collins

    That was hard to watch

  • Montez K.

    I see alot of negativity on here already……..for one, no JC. Jamaal Charles is the heart of our offense….there were no turnovers, so I’m happy with that. Our defense was phenomenal in my opinion. I paid attention to the physicality on the line–they were going toe to toe with arguably the best offensive line in the league…something to be excited about. The Niners were held to field goals even with good field position all game…our special teams looks Top 10….Knile Davis held his own……plenty of positives. We will be fine. Baldwin should be fired though, immediately. IDC how tall he is anymore…..that guy needs to pack his s***!

  • Jason Seibel

    Thanks everyone for hanging out tonight. We’ll see you next week!
