Chiefs vs. Chargers: Live Game Thread


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 high-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.

After rebounding from their devastating first loss, the Chiefs are back at home this week to greet the visiting San Diego Chargers. The cold weather could hold the Chargers at bay, but the Chiefs defense will have to look more like the beginning of the season that what was on the field last week to get win number 10 this week.

The wings are in the oven, and the beer is cold. Kickoff is only 15 minutes away and I’m ready to watch some Chiefs football and discuss it all with you.

My prediction for today’s game:

Chiefs 24

Chargers 17

Where are you at on this one, Addicts? Kickoff is next! Talk to you soon!

  • Jason Seibel

    Hey, we get the Madden 25 crew to call the game today!

    • Talicore

      I have no respect for Nantz. You see what kind of person he is occasionally when he interviews people.

      • Jason Seibel

        Hell of a lot better than Cris Collinsworth, but yeah…I agree with you.

        • Heilios

          Collinsworth is a tool

  • Heilios

    What’s up guys! Ready for this to kick off!

    • Jason Seibel

      Yessir!

    • Talicore

      Absolutely!

  • Heilios

    At least is freezing outside. San Diego is gonna freeze to death before they get any snaps

  • Heilios

    Now Jason is seems to me that you and Talicore are usually the first here. Where’s Dave? Lol

    • Talicore

      Actually this is only the second game this year ive gotten to be home for gameday.

      • Heilios

        No I’m talking on addict at the beginning of the game

    • Jason Seibel

      It’s my article! LOL!

  • Heilios

    Good call.

  • Talicore

    start strong guys

  • Heilios

    Damn.

  • Talicore

    jesus, albert just stood there watching him

  • Heilios

    McCluster was open but with the line in disarray no chance to throw it

  • Jason Seibel

    Let’s go D!

  • Jarad

    Shocking ! We punted!

  • Heilios

    I wanna see some sacks this week. I feel deprived from last week

    • Talicore

      three for me

  • Heilios

    Nothing there! Poe is a giant!

  • Heilios

    There’s our D!

  • RepOurChiefs

    The attaching D is BAAAACK yall!!

  • Talicore

    Gonna be hearing footsteps all day!

  • Heilios

    3 and out! Lets go McCluster!

  • RepOurChiefs

    The attacking D is baaaaack yall!!

  • Heilios

    What do you guys think? First or not?

    • Jason Seibel

      I thought he moved behind the line of gain.

    • Talicore

      took two or three steps backward and stutter stepped, while making a football move. hes short.

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

      I say no. He came back for the ball so his forward progress doesn’t count. He ran back himself.

      • Jason Seibel

        Hey Paddy!

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

    Yep. Gave up his ground.

  • Heilios

    Nice! Confirmed baby!

  • Heilios

    Damn. Bad block guys

  • Jason Seibel

    They need to cut Cyrus Gray!

  • Talicore

    Nothing on that one

  • Heilios

    We need to use Charles. For pretty much everything lol

    • Talicore

      Then hes used up by the time the playoffs get here though.

      • Jarad

        They dont use him and go on the road in the playoffs , Or they use him and he rest during a first round bye!!!

  • Heilios

    We need some pass rush blocking or we’re dead

    • Talicore

      Not seeing much run blocking either

  • Davé

    Not even getting a chance to see our receivers drop a ball.

  • Jarad

    Man ,it is hard to watch this Chiefs offense. They suck!! BAD. I feel more confident in the D scoring a TD

    • Davé

      As pathetic is that is, I agree.

      • RepOurChiefs

        ditto

      • Jarad

        Yea. Im a huge fan, but its hard not to express my frustration with this so called offense!

  • Heilios

    Did we bench McGrath or something? Haven’t seen him out today?

  • Davé

    So a picture of 72′s ass and Phil Sims “Oh I would like to be right there!”

    • Heilios

      Nice. Glad I’m not the only one who noticed him saying that

  • 44WinMag

    Offense sucks, that’s all there is to it.

  • Davé

    Cooper has lost something

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

      He was never that good. Chiefs fans have been drastically overrating him all year. I am not saying he is terrible. I think he could eventually be very good but right now he is not as good as people think.

  • Heilios

    They seem to like throwing against Cooper

    • Talicore

      Flowers or Cooper? who would you throw at?

      • Heilios

        True. I hope Cooper spanks on of their receivers and rips it off for six

  • Davé

    Lets see if this shit ass O can give us a lead.

  • Jason Seibel

    Every week Reid says they need to start faster and here they are…two three and outs and down by 3.

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

      It is because he insists on passing when he has no receivers. The Chiefs rarely run the ball two times in a row. If Charles gets 30 carries in this game, the Chiefs win. 2010 offensive game plan would help make the 2013 Chiefs a Super Bowl contender. Run, play action. Better, more mobile QB’s best friend.

  • Talicore

    O-line needs to give alex atleast 3 seconds,and one hole for charles

  • 44WinMag

    Another week and another game that either the Defense or Special Teams will need to score for us to win.

    • Jarad

      Yep. FRUSTRATING

  • Heilios

    Lets go O!

  • Jarad

    Toub and Peterson need to start earning their paychecks!! This D can only do so much

  • Heilios

    And there’s McCluster!!!

  • Heilios

    Really finally get positive momentum and a false start

  • Talicore

    Nice, got a completion streak going now

  • Heilios

    First down Charles!

  • micah stephenson

    Yeaaaaa!!! Alex finally made a decent deep pass to dexter! Bout time!

    • 44WinMag

      Hater!

  • Talicore

    Bowe show

  • Heilios

    I like that we finally figured out Bowe is on our team

  • Jason Seibel

    Quote from my wife: “Good job, Sonic!”

    • RepOurChiefs

      ha!

  • Heilios

    Lucky McCluster wasn’t killed on that one

  • Davé

    Have we ever had success on that shit play?

  • Jason Seibel

    BOOM SHACKA LOCKA!!!!!!!!!!

  • Talicore

    3rd and AVERY BABY!

  • Heilios

    How’s that look Micah! Nice TD

  • RepOurChiefs

    Alex cant stretch the field.. WHAT?!!!

  • Jarad

    Yes!! What a relief!

  • Jason Seibel

    And a hush falls over the Live Thread!!!

    • Heilios

      I believe I am being loud. Maybe yelling at the poor dogisn’t what you meant! GO CHIEFS!

  • 44WinMag

    Smith hits a wide open receiver! Did it really happen or was it a dream?

  • chiefs46644

    And THAT is what happens when Alex Smith gets good protection!!!

  • Jared Watson

    That’s totally uncalled for in this offense!

  • RealFan

    where are the haters now

    • FitzWilly

      right here sunshine :)

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

    That was a very nice pass by Smith. Straight down the middle, which is his strength. Good pay design.

  • Davé

    Awesome drive, no drops, good protection

    • Heilios

      And we agree on something. Peace and harmony in the world!

  • micah stephenson

    I Need A MEDIC!!!!! I JUST seen Alex throw what looked like a deep pass!

  • Heilios

    You know that hurt!

    • RealFan

      ouch

  • 44WinMag

    Somebody cover Allen

  • Brandon g

    Hit his little ass at the line

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

    Cooper beat again. Then misses the tackle twice on the same play.

    • Heilios

      They are going to keep going against Cooper until he steps up and shuts someone down.

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

        I don’t think he will shut anyone down this year. He has a bright future but he has some technique problems that are going to be a liability for the Chiefs.

        • Davé

          Yea he gets murdered on anything but a vertical route

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

            Even then he can get burned. He has used his height to break up some under thrown balls and he made a nice play on that pick earlier this year. But teams have been going after him for a while. Flowers is struggling this year but I’d rather have him not he outside.

  • Talicore

    Not worried about cooper, dude has it, denver shook him a bit i think

  • Brandon g

    Where is the copper from earlier this season

    • Heilios

      Still there just going through some growing pains. He’s a rookie guys. Bound to make a few mistakes

  • Jarad

    Coopers surprising play has slowly turned into a liability. Hes going get thrown at all day everyday till he steps up or gets help

  • chiefs46644

    Okay I’m sorry, but I need to vent. That is the THIRD play in a row where Tamba Hali has been blatantly held, resulting in him not getting a sack. This exact same shit happened in the Denver game! Do the refs not care about holding anymore? Or what’s going on

    • Heilios

      It’s just Hali. I think they figure he’s so damn good that whoever he’s against needs extra help

  • Jason Seibel

    He’s down cause he’s getting held all the damn time.

    • JDInOregon

      Oh, that sucks.

  • Davé

    That isn’t good.

    • Talicore

      hopefully just a slight twist

  • Brandon g

    On cart more than just a twist

    • Heilios

      Shit

    • 44WinMag

      He turned his ankle, lets hope its not a High Ankle Sprain.

  • Heilios

    Good challenge.

  • Brandon g

    No good but it’s gates they will give it to him

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

    Hali is done ya’ll. IR.

    • Brandon g

      Where do you get that

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

        Did you see him? Dude couldn’t walk.

        • 44WinMag

          Sprains can have intense initial pain……….that’s a long ways from IR.

        • Brandon g

          I’ve sprained our twisted my ankle and didn’t want to walk on it

    • Talicore

      Praying not. it wasnt like all his weight on the side of his foot, it twisted his ankle on the views i saw

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

        I ran Cross Country for 7 years. I have severely sprained both ankles more times than I can count…once to the point of having some internal bleeding. I never had that much trouble walking afterwards. Tamba got hurt, I think, before his ankle even twisted. I think something popped. Probably his tendon.

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

          I sure as hell hope I’m wrong.

    • Heilios

      Hoping it’s a tweak. Be back at half

    • Davé

      It certainly looked like a blown ACL when I compare it to other ones

  • Omar

    They wrestled my man till he got injured… We’ll be aight though we still have two probowl Linebackers

  • Jason Seibel

    Hali going down is huge. What a tough break…..

  • Heilios

    4th down baby!

  • Heilios

    Jesus they knew he was coming just hold him damnit!

  • Brandon g

    Wasted challenge since not stopped damn

  • Talicore

    DJ all over the field

    • RepOurChiefs

      No he’s not,,there is about 5 other ppl with the same name on the field. lol

  • Brandon g

    Johnson does not get love on this d like he should

  • 44WinMag

    DJ has been the most consistent defender all year.

  • Omar

    Too many pro bowlers, go Chiefs

  • JDInOregon

    Gee golly Zombo had him down!

    • Talicore

      so close

  • 44WinMag

    Risky catch there on the punt by DMC.

  • Brandon g

    Let’s get this drive going like last time, it’s been a while since we had the ball

  • Talicore

    So what, next series they start holding Zombo?

  • Heilios

    We’ve been dropping into coverage a lot and not pressuring the line like before. Send the house and break their spirits!

  • Heilios

    First down.

  • Talicore

    Chiefs saying hali is just an ankle

    • Canad-Ian

      Hope it’s not high ankle

  • Brandon g

    Could return

  • Heilios

    Hali has an ankle injury. Thank god it’s not a acl

    • RepOurChiefs

      i can breathe now

  • KcNdaRock

    So I’m a die hard fan and love the classic jerseys but next week is a statement like vs Dallas. Red hat, red tops, red pant, Red Sea, RED ATTAC..

  • KcNdaRock

    Charles is a stud

  • 44WinMag

    A little passing has opened up the lanes for JC.

  • Brandon g

    Does Sherman make you nervous to after last week

    • Talicore

      nah, he got nailed on that fumble. Like hard

    • Jason Seibel

      No. That fumble was textbook defense. Put your facemask on the ball carrying arm.

    • JDInOregon

      Phil Simms made a funny a few moments ago..he said Sherman had three arms wrapped around the ball.

  • micah stephenson

    Is Sherman our number 1 wr now? Lol

  • Brandon g

    Everyone knows is gonna be a screen now

  • Brandon g

    Idk if that was just a slip without a little help

  • JDInOregon

    A. Smith currently 9/12/94/1/0 Avg. 7.8 yds Rating 125

    • Jason Seibel

      Best start all season…really. Let’s hope he can keep it up.

  • micah stephenson

    Its about time Alex start getting the ball out his hands quicker! He holds on to it longer than a hoarder! Lol

    • Canad-Ian

      We can all admit Alex Smiths shortcomings. Can you admit Geno sucks?

  • Brandon g

    Keep ding that you will really get rivers crying

  • Talicore

    love seeing the spike by rivers after the penalty

  • JDInOregon

    That last play I focused on Zombo. TOTAL HOLDING GRABBING PAWING GOOD GOD.

  • Brandon g

    About time

  • Talicore

    got a yard, no sack

  • Brandon g

    I rather or d hold one more time than risk it

  • Brandon g

    Get em

  • Talicore

    DAMN that was almost gone

  • Jason Seibel

    Good D. Let’s hope the offense can make it happen. Short field! Let’s go!

    • JDInOregon

      I misread “short field” as “short field goal.” My Freudian slip is showing….

  • Brandon g

    Wrap up demps

  • Canad-Ian

    Stupid Weddle he was gone

  • Jason Seibel

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Talicore

    B E A UTIFIL pass!!!

  • JDInOregon

    Kill kill kill man on man!

  • RepOurChiefs

    Micah, you arent dreaming bro!!

  • Jason Seibel

    DOUGIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 44WinMag

    14-3 is sweet!

  • Brandon g

    Avery should have caught them all year like that great catch

  • chiefs46644

    ASK AND YOU SHALL FUCKING RECEIVE!

  • Talicore

    Just realized i started rapelessberger over alex. <——idiot

  • Omar

    Told you learned lesson, our offense will proform from this point on

  • Brandon g

    Ran Eric wedle over

  • chiefs46644

    NOW THIS IS WHAT OUR OFFENSE NEEDS TO BE LIKE! THIS IS OUR IDENTITY!

  • micah stephenson

    Yeaaaaaaaaa! !!!! Omg! I can’t believe it!

    • RepOurChiefs

      hahahahahaha

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

    Even though there is more risk involved, this offense clearly benefits from taking shots. And nobody will benefit more than Jamaal.

    • micah stephenson

      You can’t succeed if you don’t try!

  • micah stephenson

    Go CHIEEEEEEFS!!!!!!

  • 44WinMag

    Now a Turnover……

  • Brandon g

    Stop that run woodhead is not that good

    • FitzWilly

      ok
      lol

  • JDInOregon

    Even a laundry detergent disses the Chiefs.

  • RepOurChiefs

    MY WAY! MY WAY! MY WAY!….do i make myself cleeearr? lmao

  • Jason Seibel

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????

  • Jason Seibel

    His arm is broken!

  • Jason Seibel

    Did you see that???? Holy $h!!!!!

  • Davé

    Catapano time

  • Canad-Ian

    No way

  • chiefs46644

    OH MY FUCK

  • Talicore

    heart attack avoided

  • Jason Seibel

    Dammit…

  • JDInOregon

    Looked to me like Houston caught a foot to the face.

  • Jason Seibel

    Sean Smith needs to play Keenum a little tighter…

  • Brandon g

    Who is allen open on every pass like that, he is not that great of a receiver

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

    Houston with an arm injury. Went to the locker room.

    • Jason Seibel

      Looked like it bent back pretty far. I thought he broke it!

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

        He looked like he was in quite a bit of pain.

      • Talicore

        stinger hopefully

    • Talicore

      giving him an extra break before the half maybe?

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

    Need a turnover

  • Jason Seibel

    Where the hell did this Keenum Allen kid come from????

    • JDInOregon

      California. 6’2 211, WR-Rookie.

  • Brandon g

    If one is hurt for a while bad if two is defense is in trouble

  • Omar

    Cooper is killing us

  • Jason Seibel

    Dammit!

  • Jason Seibel

    I hate Phillip Rivers!

    • FitzWilly

      we heard you already
      we heard you already
      we heard you already

  • Talicore

    Get it right nantz, 2/3 of the pass rush is out. Gee, i wonder why there is time to throw?

  • Brandon g

    Down by 4 and they get the ball to start half, if hali and Houston don’t return I dont trust this offense enough to score enough to stay ahead

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

    Houston questionable to return with an elbow.

    • Brandon g

      If neither returns Philip will pick the d apart

  • Jason Seibel

    Just looking at some of these other games. Where the hell did St. Louis come from???

  • Jason Seibel

    24-14 at halftime.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Tight game. Chiefs are banged up. It will be interesting to see how they respond in the second half.Can they limit Allen and those crossing patterns? Will Sutton continue to blitz more with Hali out?

    • Jason Seibel

      Zombo didn’t look half bad on that first series he was in. I hope they’re ok, though.

      • JDInOregon

        Is this like the PGA where I can call in a rules violation like holding on every play by SD left tackle?

    • Talicore

      Hali out in this game i think they can absorb, houston as well though, blitzing will be necessary at the proper time.

      • Jason Seibel

        Did they announce that?

  • Talicore

    psychological effect of losing two guys like that will hurt you for a bit, but you gotta pick everyone up an get back in it.

    • JDInOregon

      Yeah, I would not be hugely surprised to see Zombo get a sack. Great move by front office to get him IMHO.

  • Jason Seibel

    Fast three and out here and then offense needs to capitalize!

  • Jason Seibel

    Cooper getting exposed!!!

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      He is getting an education. Let’s see how he learns and grows from it.

  • Jason Seibel

    Dammit!

  • Talicore

    some one gotta step up an get pressure, like 3 plays ago

    • JDInOregon

      Live by the blitz, die by the blitz. Rivers had all day.

  • Jason Seibel

    Offense needs to respond right here!

    • JDInOregon

      It’s a shootout! /snark But so far one of the best offensive performances by KC this year, nice mixture of plays.

  • Omar

    Fucking Cooper

  • Omar

    Where can we put Cooper where he can’t hurt us too bad

    • Davé

      the bench

  • Jarad

    Game all but over if the D doesn’t get turnovers. Like i said, Cooper is a liability! Aka, true colors are coming through….. he’s not good

    • JDInOregon

      Respectfully disagree. The offense has played well, and how awesome would it be if THEY put the game on their shoulders today.

      • Jarad

        I stand by my word with Cooper, but im more than willing to eat crow . Ha. Im stoked and really really surprised at the offensive output

      • Jarad

        Well, its playing right into what i said. The D is a sieve without 91&50. Annnnnd EXACTLY!

  • Jason Seibel

    That’s Dwayne Bowe ya’all!!!!!

  • JDInOregon

    Great concentration by Fasano

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

    That was a TD without the interference.

  • Davé

    Speared him with helmet to chest

  • Davé

    cant go a game without a drop from someone

  • Jason Seibel

    These Chargers are some cheating mo fos!

    • FitzWilly

      how’s your mom doing these days
      speaking of mo fo’s

  • Talicore

    wow chargers are just hitting them for the hell of it at this point lol

  • JDInOregon

    This is sadly hilarious. San Diego can’t defend passes without interference.

  • Davé

    hahaaha

  • Jason Seibel

    Offense!!!! Getting it done!!!!

  • JDInOregon

    Let’s hear it for the offense!

  • Brandon g

    What can the d do without it two best rushers

    • JDInOregon

      Not blitz so much?

      • Brandon g

        Can they keep them from scoring

  • Talicore

    H2 out for rest of game, not taking chances it seems

    • Brandon g

      Houston is it or hali?

      • Talicore

        H2 = Houston and Hali

  • RepOurChiefs

    Call the police…i want to file charges……….chargers are habitual muggers!!

    • FitzWilly

      OK
      let me know how that works out for you

    Pick plays finally being called against them?

    • Talicore

      nope, just ineligible, damn

  • RepOurChiefs

    oh hell…somebody go give rivers a hanky..smh

  • Jason Seibel

    Phillip “Cry Me A” Rivers in action!!!

  • JDInOregon

    Lost in the penalty hubub was the fact the Chiefs blitzed again and almost paid dearly.

  • Jason Seibel

    Eric Berry is a MONSTER!!!!!!

  • Jason Seibel

    I’ll take it!

    • FitzWilly

      I bet you will ;)

  • JDInOregon

    That’s the ticket! More base defense, swarm swarm swarm.

    • Talicore

      gonna be it for this game

  • Jason Seibel

    Come on guys!!!!!

  • Talicore

    Special teams needs to clean that shit up quick,

  • Canad-Ian

    What did Reid do to Rivers?

    • chiefs46644

      Apparently he slapped his ass! HAHAHA

  • Brandon g

    What an asshole holding his legs up like that

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

      Looked like he was setting up for a sharp shooter.

      • Talicore

        Love this

  • chiefs46644

    Haha gotta love seeing good ol’ Phillip “Cry Me Some” Rivers!

    • FitzWilly

      who’s crying now??????????????????

  • Davé

    A Frustrated Rivers is a Bad Rivers.

    • chiefs46644

      I just think Phillip Rivers is bad. Period.

      • FitzWilly

        who cares what you think
        he beat you today, fair and square
        LMAO

    J. Charles currently 9/37//4.1 with two TD. Also two catches for 17. Get him rolling some more!

    • chiefs46644

      Gotta love the two TDs though!

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

    Good thing that was knocked down.

  • JDInOregon

    Yikes. That throw was high and picked off.

  • Talicore

    Damn it

  • Davé

    Now he wont throw deep the rest of the game.

    • Talicore

      he will, just a bad throw, started by a stupid penalty

  • Brandon g

    And where the the Alex Smith super fans where everytime he makes a throw calling for haters? Support that throw now

    • Jason Seibel

      It was a bad throw for sure. But not for nothing, he’s only got 5 INTs on the season.

      • Talicore

        Throw more, you get more interceptions. law of averages

        • Jason Seibel

          Exactly, he threw the pick doing what everyone wanted him to do. Take chances.

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

    This sucks. What an awful throw by Smith.

    • Davé

      Whats suck more is he is going to shrivel up probably. Back to Dink and Dunk rest of season. That interception will give him nightmares.

  • Brandon g

    This d don’t look the same looks like they won’t stop them for the rest of the game

  • Jason Seibel

    No dumb penalites?

  • Talicore

    better start well now

  • Brandon g

    Another high throw

    • Jason Seibel

      That hit the receiver in the hands.

      • Davé

        Yea just too hard a throw for that close

  • Brandon g

    Could have had it thow

  • Brandon g

    Do not stall

  • Jason Seibel

    Holy shit an A.J. Jenkins sighting!!!

  • Brandon g

    Jenkins what????? Where you been

  • JDInOregon

    Keep mixing it up! Yeah!

  • Canad-Ian

    Jenkins one catch: Officially worth giving up on Baldwin.

  • Brandon g

    Rivers just looks ready to go off

    • Jason Seibel

      Hahahahahahahaha!!!!! Makes me so happy!

      • FitzWilly

        still happy? lol

  • Jason Seibel

    TOUCHDOWN KANSAS CITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Talicore

    Chiefs cant win a shoot-out, What?

  • Brandon g

    Best looking offense this year

  • JDInOregon

    I’ve been waiting weeks for that. Smith did not miss that throw this time!

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

    It might have taken terrible injuries to the defense to final convince the Chiefs to open up the damn offense.

    • JDInOregon

      Perhaps. But they were trying it in Denver too, maybe not quite as much.

  • Brandon g

    It’s weird seeing the offense look better than the defense

    • Talicore

      well, a defense minus 2 probowlers

  • Davé

    This isn’t a terrible D either. So exciting

  • Omar

    Offense looking like its suppose too….#GOCHIEFS

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Chiefs are responding well to adversity. Will someone on the defense step up and start making plays?

    • Davé

      Turnover time

      • Talicore

        indeed

  • Davé

    Fucking useless Blitz

  • JDInOregon

    Another blitz, another big play.

  • Brandon g

    Sit Cooper

  • Talicore

    Wow, d is on their heels

  • Brandon g

    Wow they gonna score this quick

  • Davé

    Defense cant do anything

  • Brandon g

    Turnover time

  • Brandon g

    Nevermind common offense

  • Jason Seibel

    I know it’s not Monday Night or Halloween, but anyone think we might see a fumbled Rivers snap???

  • Brandon g

    Can we not get a good offense defense mixture ever going

  • Canad-Ian

    We need a fluke turnover. D isn’t gonna force anything

    • Brandon g

      Don’t even look like there ever gonna force a 3rd down

  • Omar

    Hold em to 3

    • Jason Seibel

      Amen, sir!

  • Talicore

    Huge 3rd here

  • Brandon g

    Here comes a pick route

    • Omar

      I pray

      • Brandon g

        No a pick route where they cut off our defense

  • Davé

    Fucking hell

  • Talicore

    Oye

  • Talicore

    ok even HUGER 3rd now

    • Talicore

      or 2nd

  • JDInOregon

    I thought holding was legal for San Diego.

    • Brandon g

      They got to call one to make it look like they will

  • Brandon g

    Idk what much that will do we can’t stop them

  • Jason Seibel

    Damn. He had it. But good stop though. Demps is awesome!

    • Talicore

      indeed

  • Canad-Ian

    Demps: Not a wide receiver

  • Talicore

    Thats two that demps should have had today

  • Brandon g

    Damn it demps why didn’t you pick it shit. Nice play lol

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    That’s two picks the Chiefs should have had. This game looks a lot different if those plays were made.

    • Talicore

      yeah demps was both lol

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        First one was Smith if I recall

        • Talicore

          oh yeah it was, right through the hands right?

          • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

            right

  • Omar

    Gotta grab those pick 6s

  • JDInOregon

    Demps is averaging 24.5 yards per kick return today.

  • DTVTechGuy

    Nice throw bonehead

    • Jason Seibel

      ????

      • DTVTechGuy

        Yeah… Comment finally posted…

    • Talicore

      Im gonna say really laggy internet connection?

  • Jason Seibel

    DAMN WE NEEDED THAT!!!!!

  • JDInOregon

    Teo whiffed big time.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Welcome to the NFL, rook

  • Canad-Ian

    Ugh Wright is hurt. We need his PI penalties

    • FitzWilly

      you’re an embarrassment to all other Canadians
      PLZ pack your things and leave
      immediately

  • Talicore

    hes faking!!! j/k, hope its nothing serious

  • chiefs46644

    Manti Teo missed that tackle almost as badly as he misses his fake girlfriend!

    • Talicore

      wakka wakka

    • RepOurChiefs

      hahahahahahahahaha

    • FitzWilly

      you sure are funny lady
      just like your defense was imaginary today :)

  • Canad-Ian

    Wish we didn’t throw screens to fasano

    • Talicore

      or bootleg

      • Canad-Ian

        Ya I’m not a huge fan of rolling out and cutting the field in half

  • Talicore

    fasano could have scored but probably better not to throw there

  • Jason Seibel

    Defense needs to dig down here and come up with a big stop.

  • Canad-Ian

    I don’t want to question Charles vision but it seemed like staying left would have been the better thing to do on that long run

    • Jason Seibel

      Yeah, it’s tough. Thought the same thing about his big run last week too. I think he takes a different angle and he scores.

  • DTVTechGuy

    Defense time!

  • DTVTechGuy

    Been tryin to post all flipping day long..,

  • Jason Seibel

    Big third down!!!

  • DTVTechGuy

    Go Chiefs!

  • Jason Seibel

    Dammit! Wow….

    • Talicore

      no pressure, all day to throw

  • DTVTechGuy

    Just gonna let them dominate the center of the field… Had this problem all year last year too…

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Demps has to make that tackle

  • Canad-Ian

    Defense has been useless without H and H

  • Jason Seibel

    Time for Smith to put the team on his shoulders.

  • Talicore

    8 minute drive, take the lead, go home with a W

  • Davé

    Fuck can we please just get a stop

  • DTVTechGuy

    Anybody seein/hearing anything about H&H?

    • Talicore

      out for game

      • DTVTechGuy

        Anything on severity

  • JDInOregon

    Demps again with a decent kick return…really helping field position.

  • Talicore

    than a false start….at home….

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

    Not good my friends.

  • Talicore

    wow

  • Davé

    If we do not get a stop we are done

  • Canad-Ian

    we’re done.. can’t get a stop

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    time for a turnover

  • Talicore

    id take a stop

  • JDInOregon

    Might as well blitz a corner or safety I guess.

  • Bill Jones

    We need a rivers self-destruction

  • Talicore

    nice

  • DTVTechGuy

    C’mon now…. Touchdown time…

  • Heilios

    Nice coverage on that one

  • JDInOregon

    Suttion is awesome.

  • Jason Seibel

    Let’s do this offense!!!

  • Talicore

    no stupid penalties!!

  • Canad-Ian

    Been so close to breaking a kick return all day

    • Jason Seibel

      Both returners have…

  • Talicore

    keep it up

  • Jason Seibel

    He was down. But whatever!

  • Jason Seibel

    My blood pressure is up!!!

    • RepOurChiefs

      i wld be turning red..but im black..so i think im turning purple! lmao

      • Jason Seibel

        AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! I wish I could “up” this 1000 X’s!!!

    • Heilios

      I hear ya. Heart pounding kinda dizzy. Just need to put this one away guys

  • Talicore

    oh man…. get you some guys!

  • Jason Seibel

    uhhhhhh.,……

  • Heilios

    Nice job McCluster

  • DTVTechGuy

    Why the TO

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    WTF!!!!!! Why did Reid call TO with so much time left?

    • Davé

      his main knock on his way out of Philly

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        True and we can see it here.

  • DTVTechGuy

    Another game without a sack…. That needs to be rectified immediately..

  • Jason Seibel

    D BOWE SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Heilios

    Bowe Show!!!

  • micah stephenson

    Yeaaaaaaaa!!!!!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Reid just gave Rivers and extra 15 seconds. Dumb decision

  • Heilios

    Running up the point today. Very happy with our offense today!

  • Talicore

    the only reason this was a shoot out is because two probowlers are gone

  • Jason Seibel

    Smith just put this team on his back and put them in position to win. Now the D just has to make one more stop.

    • Heilios

      Have to agree with ya! Smith is putting on a great game today.

  • DTVTechGuy

    Hey Micah…. Almost 300 and 3 TD’s… A lot of stuff beyond 10 yards…

    Whatcha think? Still think it’s lack of skill?

    • Talicore

      most were right on too

    • micah stephenson

      Yup! 1 game against these bums ain’t nothing. Glad we won

      • DTVTechGuy

        Bah! He has the arm to throw down field when needed!

        We’ll disagree forever!

    • Canad-Ian

      and Geno sucks

    • micah stephenson

      What do you think? Is that yo choice as franchise QB?

    • micah stephenson

      1 time out of 10 games does he pass for some yards and this guy is saying I told you so. Lol.

  • micah stephenson

    Good play! Good catch!

  • Davé

    Bowe just earned about 5 mill of his contract there

  • JDInOregon

    I don’t like this new AFL league–too much passing.

  • Jason Seibel

    Dammit….

  • Heilios

    Damn almost an interception there

  • Jason Seibel

    Third down!!!

  • DTVTechGuy

    Sacksacksacksack

    • Jason Seibel

      Almost…

  • Heilios

    Did you see the big board? 137.8 decibels

  • Talicore

    damn it come on D

  • Bill Jones

    D is not hungry

  • Heilios

    Gotta stop them!!

  • Jason Seibel

    COME ON DEFENSE!!! WAKE UP!!!!

  • DTVTechGuy

    Same
    play… Are you serious?!?!?!?!

  • JDInOregon

    Golly gee darn.

  • Davé

    OH MY GOD

  • Heilios

    Fuck pass interference

  • Heilios

    Nice recovery berry

  • Jason Seibel

    WOW….

  • Heilios

    Are you fucking kidding me????

  • DTVTechGuy

    Not going to put anyone in the end zone

  • Davé

    what a terrible day this is going to be

  • Bill Jones

    Trap game all the way. Let the wheels come off of our vaunted D.

  • micah stephenson

    Wow. That sucks!

  • DTVTechGuy

    Great job by the defense today… You let Rivers tear you to pieces…

  • Bill Jones

    So much for home field advantage

  • JDInOregon

    That’s a fabulous catch though.

  • Jason Seibel

    God I hate Phillip Rivers….

    • Bill Jones

      Not as much as manning

      • Jason Seibel

        Actually, I hate him more.

    • DTVTechGuy

      I hate defensive coordinators who don’t play to prevent touchdowns when your team is up by 4 with 30 seconds on the clock and a capable QB on the other team…

    • FitzWilly

      He hates you too Jason :)
      now run upstairs and cry to your mommy :(

  • DTVTechGuy

    That’s a real shitty defensive play call… If your not going to blitz… No timeouts… You let them be you on the outside of the field on a deep ball

  • Heilios

    This is fucking bullshit. Our O finally shows the hell up and our defense falls off the planet

    • Talicore

      heart of the D is gone

      • Heilios

        It needs to be here. We need this win

  • Jason Seibel

    That’s it Fluker, give Toub time to work something up.

  • RepOurChiefs

    they can still get in field goal range guys…hold up

    • Bill Jones

      I love your optimism

    • JDInOregon

      Still have two timeout, Demps has been great on returns. Not impossible.

  • Davé

    get him off the fucking field

  • Heilios

    All I can hope is that we have been so damn close to ripping of a special teams touchdown it finally happens on this next play

  • Jason Seibel

    I can’t breathe….

  • JDInOregon

    If I were San Diego I would squib kick for sure.

  • Talicore

    fg instead of a td hurt

  • Davé

    I never thought we wouldn’t be fifth seed anyway. Out playing Denver is near impossible this next stretch of games.

  • DTVTechGuy

    Can blame that TD drive on lousy defensive play calling.

  • Heilios

    Shit really. We finally needed a big run and we get just past the 20.

  • Davé

    lol Dink your way to FG range with 20 seconds

  • Heilios

    Sack really. Hold the damn line!

  • JDInOregon

    Gosh darn it throw the ball.

  • Davé

    Yea take all day Smith

  • DTVTechGuy

    Fucking AS taking sacks… That happened last week too…

  • Jason Seibel

    Damn…wow…

  • JDInOregon

    Poo.

  • Davé

    WHAT A FUCKING JOKE.

    • Jason Seibel

      Defense….wow….

      • DTVTechGuy

        Sutton calls an umbrella coverage and puts 3/4 deep that last touchdown doesn’t happen…. That was simply a lack of intelligent play calling.

  • Heilios

    I am actually angry. I don’t thinkbive ever been angry after a loss before

  • Jason Seibel

    Defense lost this game today.

    • Heilios

      Defense gave them this game today

      • Talicore

        should have run the ball a bit more before that last td

        • SM

          I would agree… We all knew that our defense was allowing SD to score – what seemed at will – in the second half so we really needed to milk the clock more. You always want the TD first – however – but it would have been better trying to run a few times and at worst go to OT with a FG.

    • SM

      I agree 100% – who cares that Tamba and Justing were not in the game – Denver did not have a lot of their players in the first 6-8 games and they won. I know they have PFM but come on – we were at home – you would think there would be some additional incentive…

  • joerockt

    Yeah suck on that you shit talking Queef bitches.

    • Bill Jones

      We will

    • Jason Seibel

      Who’s last place in the AFC West?

    • Talicore

      Pretty sad for the chargers, took the chiefs losing two pro-bowlers to lose this game

      • joerockt

        You’re welcome.

        • Talicore

          how witty

      • JoseSD

        i guess you forget the chargers are down their top 4 pass rushers/OLB 2 on IR Dwight Freeney, Melvin Ingram, Jarret Johnson, Larry English. their top 2 WRs are on IR Malcolm Floyd, Denario Alexander. The LT King Dunlap is out with a neck injury and the backup Mike Harris is on IR. our RT Fluker was playing LT and RG Clary switched back to RT. so dont tell us about injuries when were down 5 starters and 3 key backup rotational players

    • Heilios

      I don’t think anyone was shit talking so if you have an intelligent argument for a good game that could have went either way with one different play call I would welcome it.

  • gary

    You have a tie game guaranteed…why are you throwing the ball if you are the chiefs at the 5 yard line? You D is not stopping anyone and you lave Riverst way too much time…pathetic clock management follows Reed everywhere

    • JDInOregon

      Too much can happen…sack, turnover, etc. You have to take the touchdown if you can get it, and find a way to stop the other offense. There were numerous near picks of Rivers.

      • gary

        No you don’t – they were probably all too happy to let them score…they didn’t even burn their TO’s…run the ball at least once and if you score so be it…but it’s clueless to not make them at least burn their TO…just lack of awareness…

        • JDInOregon

          Obviously we disagree. Sure, in a perfect world you score with very little time left, but if you find an opening to get the points you need you take it.

  • Bill Jones

    Now a week of hearing everyone kick the crap out of KC. Way to make all the “hater” comments justified.

    • Heilios

      I get so tired of hearing the media talking trash on us. I will give them this, out defense is gone and I have no idea what happened to it

      • Bill Jones

        You and me both Brother. I can’t stand it.

      • Talicore

        We would have had a few sacks today if hali and houston were in there. way too many near misses on rivers.

  • Jarad

    Nice loss Chiefs! That Chargers team sure is a good one!!!! Insert 3 game losing streak.

    • Bill Jones

      Word…sigh.

    • Talicore

      We shall see

    • SM

      Unfortunately – I would have to agree with you… We cannot beat San Diego at home – what makes us think we can beat Denver at home? Well – I guess it is the NFL – anything can happen but until we find a way to get pressure on the QB – we are one and done in the playoffs – assuming we get that far.

  • SM

    CHIEFS SUCK!!!

    • BWrangler

      Thanks for the insightful post. Back to your cave.

    • Talicore

      yeah at 9-2, we sure suck

  • JDInOregon

    And lost in the wailing and sudden appearance of trolls is the fact that it was a very entertaining game. It is troubling the defense played so poorly without H and H, but it is a team sport.

    What if Hali and/or Houston return soon, the defense re-groups and the offense plays with new confidence?

    • Talicore

      I think they will perform way better. Completely out of the blue basically losing our pass rush. But there is still alot of football left to be played.

  • SM

    I am tired of following this team!!! I may be just so frustrated and possibly a little intoxicated – however – this is B***Sh*t – how does the defense lay such a big EGG in this game – that’s all we hear is how we have faced inept teams and that we are frauds. Well at this point I am starting to agree. Understood – Tamba and Justin are out the second half but letting a team score with only 1:30 and two timeouts in your own F’n place is ridiculous!!! I do not care who is in our lineup – you should have some kind of heart and pride. O’Well we will be lucky to make the playoffs as I can see us losing almost all of our games barring some crazy scenario.

    • Talicore

      chalking it up to the booze

      • SM

        You are probably right! I have been a fan since the mid 70′s and live in Denver – I get tired of all the BS I hear out hear and it is only going to get worse after this game.

    • BWrangler

      Start following the Broncos, then. If a loss bugs you this bad, you probably need stop watching sports all together.

      • Bill Jones

        I think every KC fan should be venting after the last two weeks. It is a Tough pill to swallow that maybe we were frauds with a weak schedule. SMH.

      • SM

        HELL NO!!! I hate the Broncos with a passion – that is why I take these loses so personally. I was at the Chiefs/Denver game last week and heard nothing but S**T from them – and after this week – I guess they were right – hard to argue – giving up 41 points at home… We are suppose to be one of the top defenses in the NFL – 41 should never be put up – especially at home. Offense finally shows some life and this happens. Oh Well – it’s only a football game

    • Gunnar Martin

      You sound like a Charger fan lol

  • SM

    Just wanted to post one more thing… Why did Andy Reid call a TO with 18 seconds on the play clock and 1:30 left in the game. You know you want a TO so why not wait until the play clock goes down to 1 second? That only leaves about 1:13 left to play. We scored in about 8 seconds so that leaves about 1:05 left in the game for Rivers instead of 1:22. Based on that they might have still scored with 2 seconds left in the game but it makes a difference on how you execute on offense based on time left. Poor time management by head coach Andy Reid. I would have rather ran a few times since worse case we kick a FG and go into OT. Was he not watching our defense play?
