Chiefs vs. Bills: 5 Questions From A Buffalo Fan

If you’re not from Kansas City or don’t follow the Chiefs like we do here at Arrowhead Addict, KC’s 8-0 start could be somewhat of a mystery.

I can see fans across the NFL shaking their heads and wondering just how an organization was able to go from 2-14, to undefeated through half of the next NFL season.

To some, it’s a slap in the face. To others, it could provide hope. I think overall though, people just want to know more about the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs are in Buffalo today to take on the Bills, and in preparation for the game, BuffaLowDown editor Dennis Amo asked me a few questions about your beloved Chiefs.

Let me know if I represented you Addicts well or not. Here are his questions and my answers.


1. Has Alex Smith been the answer for the Chiefs success this year?
No. Smith not has been the answer. He has been one of many answers. This organization changed everything from the general manager, to the coach and quarterback. I’d give Andy Reid a ton of credit for bringing it all together under one voice and banner, but this 8-0 start has been a complete organizational effort.

2. I have heard rumors that the Chiefs are 8-0 because they’re playing teams that are missing some of their better players, and not being a true 8-0 team as their record shows.  What is your take on this?  

Those aren’t rumors. Those are just poorly formed opinions. You can’t choose who you play in the NFL, and you can’t control who’s out on the field for them when you do meet up. The Chiefs are just going out there and playing the hand they’ve been dealt. I firmly believe no win comes easy in the NFL—no matter who’s on the field for the opposition.

3. Who has been the biggest disappointment so far, halfway through the season.

There are not really many disappointing players on an 8-0 team, for good reason. I’m a bit disappointed that Knile Davis hasn’t had as many opportunities to spell Jamaal Charles and show what he can do at running back. But with Charles playing as good as he is, there’s little reason to take him out.
4.  What are three keys for that the Bills if they want to pull a win out against the Chiefs?
1. Stop the run and contain Jamaal Charles out of the backfield as a receiver.
2. Be exceptional in pass protection.
3. Limit Dexter McCluster both on offense and on special teams.
5.  What are your predictions for the game? And why?
Unfortunately, I don’t see the Bills backup quarterback, Jeff Tuel, having much success against this Chiefs’ defense.
Chiefs: 33, Bills: 17

    I love your writing AK56 bro, but under no circumstances will I ever say how a team could win against the red and yellow. I believe Shaun Smith is the weak link, hes been tourched many times. Dude was the same way in Mia, he has been beat on a majority 3&long situations. He recieves a lot of credit for his size. Once the reciver gets outside of 5 yards I start lookin for kendrick and EB, I’d like to see Coop play 2nd CB. S. Smith can hit, I’d like to see the cb blitz and coop cover. Kniles is awesome they use him in the right situation when JC aka flash needs a rest. Mike devito is awesome as well he’s quiet but good the large ninja. I want to see Young Hemi get some snaps at 2WR over Avery. But were winning so I wouldn’t change a damn thing! AK56 your still the man since Pat left keep up the good work! Tomohawk Chop up and arrowheads to the endzones, bills watch out we coming to your house so we can take a win HOME!!! GO CHIEFS (Gavin Lee Hamilton next writer for AA? I LIKE IT)
