Chiefs Kingdom Reacts To Kansas City's Overtime Win vs. Steelers


The Kansas City Chiefs picked up their first win of the 2013 preseason with an epic overtime win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

KC won the game on a game-ending touchdown pass from Chase Daniel to Rico Richardson, who made a great catch in the corner of the end zone.

The last drive was impressive, but Kansas City overall looked very good. The Chiefs defense was resilient, Alex Smith and the offense moved the ball, and special teams was great, once again.

After the game, we took to Twitter and asked our fans what they thought about the game.

Here are your responses.

Right off the bat, not everybody feels optimistic:

That seemed to be a theme:

Let’s start getting to the positive takes, eh?

Alex Smith is getting some props after his great first half:

Even Chase Daniel finally got some praise. Bet this guy is a Missouri fan:

With all that, there’s still some worry out there among Chiefs Kingdom:

 

Frankly, I personally don’t feel as worried as they do. I think we saw a lot of good out of the Chiefs offense on Saturday.

Let’s end on a good note. Nobody can deny how great special teams has been:

    the o-line has struggled at times, but it was against two of the best defenses and defensive lines in the league. and the way we adjusted and carved them up on the scoring drive to end the first half was undeniably impressive. lots to learn from and build upon!

    • NicholasAlanClayton

      Agree, and those weren’t even real adjustments because we put in totally different players at half. When it’s a real game with real adjustments, those breakdowns will be dealt with. Hudson has gotten beaten pretty bad a couple of times this preseason, but it’s a young interior line that is most likely going to develop and get better. I also noticed that the protection was overall stronger when Schwartz was in there. The Chiefs’ll be fine.

      • shayaan

        i meant the adjustments in play-calling and execution before halftime, when the starters were still in. but i agree, there will be more game-planning in regular season games and that should benefit the protection schemes.

    Alice Smiff has 1 good series, 1 mediocre series, and 4 bad series; the starting OL got owned again; I’m not impressed with the O at all. The D looked good to fair but was helped by a dropped TD pass.

    • NicholasAlanClayton

      Yeah, it was almost like we were playing a good team and still prevailed in a tough win. We suck.

      • 44WinMag

        Well Junior, winning an exhibition game is no real feat. Especially when by any eye test the starters looked like the same old 2-14 team.

        • PunjabiPete

          If winning an exhibition game is no real feat, then how can you say the starters looked terrible if none of it mattered? I’m confused. That’s the way it goes here though, in order to appease a lot of fair weather, never satisfied fans, you have to already be winning 70-0 before opening kickoff, and even THEN we suck. Shameful…. SMH

    • PunjabiPete

      You are a ray of sunshine. That being said you’re completely entitled to your opinion. What would you do to resolve this then? Oh, and before you answer, “I would go back and-” is not an answer. You can’t roll back time. Now, with our CURRENT situation (I am actually quite content with where we are), what would you change? Who would you pick up?

      • 44WinMag

        Actually attempt to draft and develop a Franchise QB as opposed to settling for “good enough” or “best available” veteran failure. All the Dynasties develop draft and develop Franchise Hall of Fame QBs and then build around him. The Chiefs always do it arse backwards by building a team and then trying to fit a veteran QB who inevitably is someone else’s castoff.

        • PunjabiPete

          So your answer is “I would go back in time and draft-” nonsense. OK, gotcha… moving on.

    I thought the game showed a lot of promise! It seems every week people mention things on sites and the next week they happen! Am I the only person who notices this? Last week it was the lack of throws to the receivers and just like that our receivers we targeted vs. the Steelers. The only disappointment I have seen throughout the pre-season would be the O-line and the way they are being handled, and their lack of creating holes for the RB’s. Other than that I thought the QB play was good, and when the RB’s got sweeps or to the outside they were able to show what they can do in running and receiving. The TE’s or Should I say Fasano is looking good as well as most of the WR’s. I am also happy with the defense although I have noticed that teams are lining up their speedy WR’s with Smith and that might be a problem. He is a good CB but has been beat by speed a couple of times! And what can you say about Special Teams except they are hitting on all cylinders! What has Succop missed just one field Goal this pre- season I believe? And is it just me or is he pretty much automatic from long distances, but put him inside the 30 and this is where he has his most trouble? Anyways as always just my opinion!!! GO CHIEFS!!!!!!

    Apparently this offense should already be clicking and running the score up on teams after a few months together, and some people haven’t yet heard of a learning curve. To see that they where able to progress in just a half of football against a defense that has been good for a long time is pretty exciting for me. Special teams may be the best special teams in the league this year and the defense only gave up 10 points 7 coming off a short field and I don’t think you could find very many qbs that would have extended that TD like Ben did. And everyone counting that “dropped TD” whatch it against and see how flowers didn’t give up and got a hand on it to jar it out. But cut the offense some slack yes eventually they need to string together drives but even Payton manning had a learning curve in Denver he did start looking like Payton tell a few games into the season and half way though the year Denver was looking really good
