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.

Here it is, Addicts. The regular season finale for the Kansas City Chiefs. While this game means nothing for the Chiefs, it means everything for the Chargers and thus they’ll have their best foot forward. There are some things to be thankful for, though Addicts.

Every single one of us wished for meaningful football in December and January. Look at where this team was just one short year ago. Tomorrow the talk won’t be about the Chiefs head coach and general manager getting fired. It’ll be about who the Chiefs are playing in the first round of the playoffs and what preparations their current head coach and general manager are making.

This is about as meaningful as it gets, Addicts. Though I would like to see Reid play the starters and embarrass the Chargers in their home like they did to the Chiefs, playing a preseason game in Week 17 because you want your starters rested for the post season is about as good as it gets.

My prediction:

Chiefs 21

Chargers 35

But only because it’s the 2′s vs. the 1′s.

Talk to you in 20 minutes!

      One last game on the interwebs radio. With so many starters not playing it’s like a weird pre-season game in December.

      • Heilios

        I would love nothing morethan have our backups eliminate the chargers from the post season

        • Chris Tarrants

          if we win who gets the 6th seed?

  • Blake Molina

    LETS USE JENKINS MORE

  • Heilios

    touchdown Davis!

  • Heilios

    our backups just marched down the field!

  • Blake Molina

    Knile for miles! Afterburners there!

  • Chris Tarrants

    lmao hope this continues

  • JDInOregon

    Well I’ll be a monkey’s uncle, that is something else.

  • rumbunter

    CHIEFS! CHIEFS! CHIEFS!!

  • Heilios

    I didn’t have a good feeling about today but hopefully this was just a taste of what’s to come!

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

    Bench Alex Smith and Bow. Go with Daniel and Jenkins in the playoffs. lol.

    • Chris Tarrants

      hahaha if this is the results i am down with that

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

    Nice tackling there…was that Lewis?

  • Heilios

    I’m tired of hearing Kendrick Lewis missed the tackle

    • Chris Tarrants

      he will be gone next year

      • Heilios

        promise?

      • JDInOregon

        He needs to go sit on the damn bench.

    • micah stephenson

      Lewis aint even playing today.

  • ladner morse

    Go Chiefs… for one half!

  • Phillip Maxwell

    And just like that they tie it back up

  • Blake Molina

    Shit that was pretty impressive toss by Cry Me a Rivers. Be entertaining to see a shoot out with our backups ha.

    Also, KENDRICK LEWIS FOR SALE

    • Chris Tarrants

      Kendrick lewis free to good home

      • Heilios

        free to a bad home. abandoned on the side of the road

        • KCMikeG

          I second that motion. Could we have a vote?

  • micah stephenson

    Not one single starter on defense.

    • Blake Molina

      Well, Kendrick Lewis doesn’t count in my opinion either

    • Chris Tarrants

      gonna be ugly lol

  • JDInOregon

    Mitch on the radio keeps saying the Chiefs can set an NFL record for kick return average today. Good start.

  • Chris Tarrants

    Who knew we had a real oline and had them on the bench and practice squad all year?

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

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the Chargers score every time their offense is on the field.

    • tm1946

      Will not disagree but these guys are playing for their futures. TD surprised the heck out of me, maybe with coaching they can show something.

  • Heilios

    three and out. Damn more Lewis.

    • tm1946

      Hate defending Lewis but who is standing around him. Sometimes you get the blame when someone else does not get to his place and your number is all the camera see. Bet I am wrong but look who are the starters for this game.

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Just sitting here thinking that very thing

  • JDInOregon

    Meanwhile Denver up 7-0 at Oakland, driving with the ball. I guess Denver is still playing to lock #1 seed.

    • JDInOregon

      And Denver just scored TD-13-0 pending PAT.

  • Canad-Ian

    Stupid NFL game pass won’t work. You guys are my only hope for updates

    • JDInOregon

      I’m listening to KC Chiefs radio on the interwebs–just search for it if you wish.

  • Frank

    Nice sack. Coverage sack? From the 2s?

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

    I’ve been spending a lot of time developing James Michael Johnson in my Madden franchise.

  • Heilios

    Parker interception!

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Hell yeah!!he’ll yeah!!

  • Frank

    And an INT? O played first series and D played the second.

  • Blake Molina

    Woah! A pass rush and a pick!? Always like Ron Parker, thought he deserved more time. Certainly more than Robinson

  • micah stephenson

    I like Parker. We got a good secondary.

    • Blake Molina

      Sans Lewis and Robinson

    • Chris Tarrants

      where? are you talking about Patricks madden franchise too?

      • micah stephenson

        No I’m talking bout Flowers, Smith, Cooper, Berry, Parker, Demps, Abdullah, Robinson.

  • Heilios

    through Hemingways hands

  • Heilios

    gray wasn’twantingto give up on that one

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

    Hemingway, I think, is going to be pretty good but the dude clearly needs some seasoning.

    • Heilios

      o gotta agree. he’s gonna be a beast

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

        He reminds me a little bit of Boldin.

        • Chris Tarrants

          I had to do a double take lol I thought you wrote Baldwin for a second

  • Heilios

    Hemingway is going to give me a heart attack

  • Blake Molina

    Lol Hemmingway’s not used to getting YAC like that. He’s always tackled right after making the catch

    • Chris Tarrants

      shh dont give micah fuel

      • micah stephenson

        Whats that spose to mean?

        • Chris Tarrants

          Fuel for your anti Smith fire

          • tm1946

            As if he did not know!

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

    Ah bad run by Davis. He didn’t trust Donald was going to give him the room. If he kept going he scores.

    • Heilios

      would have been pay dirt. just follow your blocker

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

        Another reason why starting the youngsters in this game is a good thing. He probably realized as soon as he slowed up that he shouldn’t have. Next time, he might not do it. Same thing with Hemingway realizing he needs to be more careful transferring the football.

  • spencer

    HEmmingway is playing pretty giddy right now, needs to calm his nerves

    • tm1946

      Suspect you can say that about most. It must be hard to keep everyone’s head from being 4 stories high.

  • Blake Molina

    Stephenson looking good there. Would be okay as a replacement for an overpriced Albert. Of course I hope we’d draft/sign another tackle or two)

    • spencer

      with what money and what extra draft picks??? A 5th rnd draft pick for a tackle at the most unless we trade a Bowe or Flowers and re-structure Berry and Hali’s contracts…lots of re-structuring needs to be done or we are unlikely to even be able to sign all of our draft picks, let alone free agents.

      • Blake Molina

        Albert walks, hopefully Robinson and/or Lewis get traded/cut. Should free up SOME space

  • micah stephenson

    A time out just tell him don’t turn the ball over.

    • ladner morse

      Please… save the time out… here… let me tell him. Don’t turn the ball over!

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Reid saw something he didn’t like…he looks pissed

  • micah stephenson

    I hope we beat San Diego with our backups

    • tm1946

      From your mouth to god’s ear.

    • Chris Tarrants

      You just hope we win without Smith lets be honest here

    • berttheclock

      Hmmm, you mean with Chase Daniels, the fellow so many KC “General Managers” wanted to dump due to his excessive salary, just a few days ago? Or with the help of Knile Davis, another player, so many “GMs” said was part of a poor draft class this year? How about A J Jenkins, who was called a bust by many “GMs”, as well.

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

    Nice!

  • Heilios

    McCluster!!!!!!!!

  • spencer

    So when will our 2nd string be replaced by our 3rd string so I can see what Bray is amde of??? U know…after we blow out the chargers…oh how i wish this happens…

  • DerChiefFan

    Go dexter!!

  • Blake Molina

    I knew Reid could turn Dex into a real contributor.

  • JDInOregon

    McCluster with the TD!

  • micah stephenson

    Touchdown!!!!

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

    I want to see Rivers’ head explode if he throws another pick.

    • Frank

      That would be awesome. I love when he gets frustrated.

    • Blake Molina

      Or flood Qualcomm with tears

    • Heilios

      his head won’t explode. he’ll break down crying all the way to the bench then blame a receiver for nothing

  • Chris Tarrants

    Daniel is gonna need a bigger helmet because his head is swelling

  • JDInOregon

    For some reason I really really want some Rice Krispies!

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

    Philip is like “Damn, these guys are good.”

    • ladner morse

      Patrick… who is it down to… SD or Pittsburgh going into the playoffs?

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

        Yep. SD wins, they’re in. KC wins, Pitt is in.

  • tm1946

    Would just love to be a fly on the wall in the coaches booth, bet the defensive coaches are going nuts. Backups are playing like first stringers.
    Just had a thought if this works, does Reid keep this roster for the playoff game….. sorry just a little crazy,

    • JDInOregon

      No, but you have to like the potential for motivating the starters. They’ve been playing like crap, so this may all work out in the end.

  • Blake Molina

    Option slowly changing on Chase. Once he settles in, he looks like maybe a capable backup. Of course I want to see Bray (eventually) excel, but he should be groomed

  • DerChiefFan

    How bout another interception!!

    • Chris Tarrants

      that would be great but I just want to see him get sacked over and over and over by second stringers because that would be awesome!

      • DerChiefFan

        I totally agree – love watching him get frustrated.

  • Blake Molina

    I was hoping if anyone could turn Dex into a player, it’s Andy Reid

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Just can’t give Rivers that much time

  • JDInOregon

    Big screen play to Royal for 30 yards.

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

      Yeah. Chiefs had an overload blitz called to that side. Worst D they could have been in.

  • Frank

    Nice hit on Rivers

  • Heilios

    I’m a bit surprised. I wasn’t expecting to be leading at any point in this game.

    • JDInOregon

      Yeah, I was maybe going to ignore this game, but then decided to listen in.

    • tm1946

      Just three more quarters

    • KCMikeG

      Got sick of hearing how we were going to lose 41-0 all week. These guys have too much pride to let that happen. Except for Lewis.

  • Heilios

    once again Lewis botched it

    • tm1946

      Come on guys, put Lewis on an island against Gates and Gates wins every time. Quickness, size, and he knows where the play is going. Give Lewis a break on this one.

      • KCMikeG

        A beak would be warranted if he had been actually made a play instead of just standing their flat footed. No break after missing the tackle giving up 40 yards to Matthews.

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Gates just blew by Lewis

  • Blake Molina

    I’d rather have Berry play two positions and throw in somebody else like Frank Zombi to pass rush than have Lewis in coverage.

    Okay probably an exaggeration, but I harbor great disdain for Kendrick Lewis.

    • JDInOregon

      Well this is getting kind of nuts…if someone is that much of a liability you get someone else out there.

      • Blake Molina

        Yeah hopefully we’ll see Sanders Commings contribute next season

  • KCMikeG

    Lewis has never been the same since his shoulder injury.

    • Chris Tarrants

      He has never been the same since college lol he has always sucked in KC

      • KCMikeG

        Actually he stepped up and played better than expected when Berry went down.

  • Frank

    Lewis.

  • KCMikeG

    I hope that Comings is all they think he will be.

    • tm1946

      Has at least one fan in KC. Not sure who or why.

  • JDInOregon

    C. Daniel 1st Quarter 5/7/62/8.9/1/0/138.1

  • Heilios

    at some point they will replace Lewis right? RIGHT??????????

    • tm1946

      With?????? we are resting starters.

      • Heilios

        some lucky fan in the stands!

        • Chris Tarrants

          hahaha

    • Blake Molina

      I would imagine in the offseason. Would make no sense to cut now and throw someone else out there on the cusp if playoffs. Hopefully Sanders Commings becomes a good player

  • ladner morse

    There is no SAINT Lewis in Kansas City.

    • Phillip Maxwell

      Saint BLewis

  • KCMikeG

    Davis is a bruising runner.

  • JDInOregon

    K. Davis 1st Quarter 5 carries for 37 yards, avg 7.4 1 TD

  • Blake Molina

    I know we all wanna see Bray, but Chase is making his case as to why he’s the backup. Definitely changing my opinion already today.

    • tm1946

      Really, 2 TD? in first qtr. That is bad, yeah.

      • Heilios

        he meant he sees why Daniel is ahead in the depth chart

  • tm1946

    Andy that reverse was UGLY, throw that page out of the book.

  • JDInOregon

    First down to McCluster!

  • Heilios

    time out again???

    • JDInOregon

      It happens in December pre-season games. ;-)

  • Heilios

    hey Laddie you think we’ll see Bray today?

    • ladner morse

      I’m hoping he has been promised one half. If not then at least give him the 4th quarter.

      • Chris Tarrants

        could you imagine Bray leading a fourth quarter two minute game winning drive! that would be my late xmas gift

      • Heilios

        I would like to see him showcase his cannon

    • ladner morse

      I’m wondering if Bray has favorite targets in practice… and if that pattern might show itself later in this game.

  • Frank

    Let’s go long to Jenkins on this one. I feel the need. The need for speed.

  • Frank

    Or short to him.

  • Heilios

    Davis is a big boy!

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Our second string has to be enjoying the hell out of this

    • Frank

      Must have been a good pep talk.

  • JDInOregon

    Sounds like Davis just bulled his way for 5 yards.

    • Heilios

      that he did

  • Heilios

    I’m pretty impressed with our backups. good job Dorsey!

  • Phillip Maxwell

    That was hideously ugly

    • JDInOregon

      Sounds like they blew up the screen play. After the Oakland game KC can never call a screen again, forever. ;-)

  • KCMikeG

    This just in to the news desk. Teo jumped offside because he thought he saw his girlfriend.

    • Frank

      Glad it’s not too soon for this.

  • Chris Tarrants

    why is Colquitt punting? what if he gets hurt? Let Demps kick’em lol

  • Canad-Ian

    I just watched from the start until now fast forwarding between plays. I like Hemingway but he needs to relax. He’s like Jo-Jo the circus boy with a pretty new pet.

    • JDInOregon

      That’s funny.

  • JDInOregon

    Meanwhile New England up on Buffalo 13-3. Denver skunking Faders 17-0.

  • JDInOregon

    Mathews has 68 yards on 9 carries, avg. 7.6. Nice stop there though.

  • Heilios

    Cooper is doing well

    • Chris Tarrants

      knock on some wood

      • Heilios

        he’s a rookie with growing pains. it can only get better

        • Chris Tarrants

          I agree but one mess up and he crumbles

          • Heilios

            he.needs some more confidence

          • Chris Tarrants

            yeah and to learn to shake off a bad play and move on to the next one but he wears it too long and it effects him way too long

  • Frank

    Dare I hope to be leading at the half?

    • JDInOregon

      Yes. Feed it to Davis, some play action, etc.

  • JDInOregon

    Kendall Gammon says Fisher’s shoulder is hurt.

  • Heilios

    nice run by Daniel!

  • Frank

    I like the QB draw call. Nice one AR.

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Daniels got game!

  • Blake Molina

    Woah, I think Chase Daniel could beat Alex Smith in a race

  • JDInOregon

    29 yard run by Daniel!

  • ladner morse

    Chasing Chase….

  • Heilios

    he pump faked three yards past the line

    • Blake Molina

      Russel Wilson woulda made the defender jump

  • Heilios

    Davis punished them!

  • 44WinMag

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadows of the NFL Playoffs I did not believe that the backups would be competitive.

  • Tony Parker

    these guys on offense look awesome so far

  • Chris Tarrants

    our leading rusher at the end of the day? Chase Daniel! who would have called that one?

    • Blake Molina

      Lol still gonna be Knile

  • DTVTechGuy

    And I’m late… Anyone hatin’ on CD today…. :)

    • Tony Parker

      he looks real good so far

    • KCMikeG

      I’ve got some crow warming up in the microwave as we speak.

      • DTVTechGuy

        Anyone that watched him at Mizzou knew the guy was a football player… Not the most physically gifted… But he plays man…

  • Frank

    Run DMC, jump DMC.

  • Heilios

    Hell yeah!

  • Blake Molina

    Anyone noticing Anthony Sherman still playing? Cannot believe that dude got snubbed from the Pro Bowl!

    • Heilios

      himand Johnson

  • Blake Molina

    Dexter with the ups! IS IT THE SHOES

  • JDInOregon

    Mitch on the radio “And McCluster looks like he’s doing the 400m hurdles!”

  • DerChiefFan

    Dex! Nice jump

  • ladner morse

    Dextra Credit!

    • Chris Tarrants

      Mcclusterf*cked

      • ladner morse

        hehehe

  • Heilios

    I think Davis is gonna be the thunder to Charles lightning

  • DTVTechGuy

    I was skeptical about the KD draft choice… I’ll join the CD haters for some crow..”

  • KCMikeG

    Great block by Dex and the screen works!

  • Frank

    Davis earning the props today.

  • Phillip Maxwell

    DExtraordinary!!–lol

  • Heilios

    very impressed!

  • DerChiefFan

    Yes!!!!!!!!

  • Heilios

    TD Davis! hear the boos!!!!

  • Tony Parker

    Davis is really squeezing that pig today, he’s a beast

  • Chris Tarrants

    Watkins should be a starter right now, into the playoffs and next year!

    • Blake Molina

      More playing time yes, starting though? That remains to be seen

      • KCMikeG

        He has been beat on pass protection a couple times and looks like he has slow feet. Definitely big upside potential that I hope we can develop. Not thrilled with Allen but he is young and developing too.

  • Blake Molina

    Knile E. Coyote

  • JDInOregon

    TOUCHDOWN KAN-SAS CITY!!!!!!!!

  • Phillip Maxwell

    And for the lead…

  • Frank

    I’m loving me some 2s today. I don’t think it matters how we finish the rest of the game at this point, this team will enter the playoffs with confidence.

    • KCMikeG

      I was kind of down thinking we would be getting rolled playing our back ups but Hell No! This is an inspirational effort and will set the right tone for the playoffs. Impressive!

  • micah stephenson

    Im liking K.Davis!!!

    • ladner morse

      I’m N-D-knile too.

      • KCMikeG

        There’s no D-Knileing his potential!

  • JDInOregon

    Look at the confidence Davis is going to have! Look at the nightmare the Colt’s defensive coordinator is facing!

  • Frank

    Let’s see if we can put Phyllis on tilt here and now.

  • Blake Molina

    I remember when I was in high school, once we rolled some schools, there was nothing more fun than cheering on the JV/freshmen when they got in.

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Would love to see a pick 6 here

  • Heilios

    Zombie Zombo!!!

  • worsttofirst

    Oh please let us eliminate the Chargers from the playoffs.

  • DTVTechGuy

    Zombo really hasn’t played bad in place of Houston so far…

    • JDInOregon

      Agreed. Sounds like a nice sack coming back inside?

    • Blake Molina

      Agreed, definitely the best sub LB we have

  • Chris Tarrants

    more sacks in one game with backups than our starters in three weeks

  • Heilios

    haha rivers pooched it!

  • Frank

    Ding-ding-ding, getting close to tilt….

  • Blake Molina

    Really getting in Phyllis’ face, I love it

    • JDInOregon

      Len Dawson just totally dissed Rivers, saying (paraphrasing here) he doesn’t actually want to run with the ball.

  • micah stephenson

    Wow! We beating them with the back ups! Lol.

  • Chris Tarrants

    Jenkins and Dex both running deep outs and let Daniel air one out

  • Heilios

    Davis covered that ball like it was his baby

    • JDInOregon

      This would be great if this is where he emerges. His only negative has been ball security.

  • Justin R Groth

    is it safe to say Davis could be a starter on many teams?

  • worsttofirst

    That was an amazing half of play by the two’s

  • Heilios

    I love hearing the home team get boos!!!

  • KCMikeG

    Potential playoff team getting Booooooooooo’s at home!!!!!! Love it!!

  • DTVTechGuy

    Surprised at the O-Line so far… Those guys are playing as well as the starters…

  • Chris Tarrants

    Peyton manning leads NFL in TD’s and Eli leads NFL in int’s lol

  • 2dogs

    Defense have up 7 first downs that half. Not bad at all!

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Our second string must not have gotten the memo about this being a meaningless game.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    For a team mailing it in playing their second string. The Chiefs are impressing

  • Chris Tarrants

    who is our qb this half?Daniel or Bray

    • Phillip Maxwell

      My guess would be Daniel to give him plenty of snaps in case we need him in the post season

  • worsttofirst

    Let’s keep up the focus for second half and come away with the win

  • JDInOregon

    Tried to get something to eat at halftime but the line was too long. And I’m at home (darn college kids hanging around during break!)

  • worsttofirst

    Definitely more of a let down for Chargers with the first half results, more like shell shock.

  • JDInOregon

    CBS in Portland (KOIN) just switched to KC-San Diego game as Denver is murdering Oakland.

    • Chris Tarrants

      congrats now turn the radio off lol

  • Chris Tarrants

    We still havnt seen Davis get loose and see his speed yet, fingers crossed

  • 2dogs

    Might need a special team TD to pull this off.

  • ladner morse

    I’d rather see Pittsburgh in the playoffs more than the Chargers. Don’t want to play the Chargers… don’t like Rivers and we see them too much as it is. Even though I really really dislike Roethlisberger.

    • Chris Tarrants

      the look on Rivers face if they lose will be priceless though

  • Heilios

    all right guys I’m back. what did I miss

    • Chris Tarrants

      two punts

      • Heilios

        well shit

  • Chris Tarrants

    that was ugly

  • Phillip Maxwell

    What the hell was that?

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Good call Zebra

  • Chris Tarrants

    up ten, i’ll take it

  • Heilios

    nice kick Succop

  • Phillip Maxwell

    I can here Steeler fans around the country…..wow, these Chiefs look pretty damn good

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Lol —Powe’s got moves

  • Chris Tarrants

    Powe needs to work on his sack dance

    • Frank

      Is that what that was? I thought hew as just creeped out from touching Phyllis.

      • Chris Tarrants

        holy shat that is comment of the day

      • ladner morse

        lol

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Chargers—”we need 13 yards”
    Chiefs—”lets leave Gates wide open in the middle”

  • JDInOregon

    How about that Parker today!

  • 44WinMag

    Well, I’m certainly feeling better about the depth on this team.

    • Frank

      Ditto in a big way. Perhaps it changes the way the 1s play too. Step up their game too.

    • ladner morse

      Depth does look a bit different than it did the third game of the preseason.

  • Chris Tarrants

    if we score here Rivers might pee a little

    • Frank

      You can start to see the lights flickering. T…I…L…T!!!!!!!!

  • micah stephenson

    eliminating San Diego from the playoffs with our backups would be so sweet!

    • ladner morse

      AGREEEEEEEEEEED!

  • Chris Tarrants

    Daniel said oops did I run over your girlfriend?

  • JDInOregon

    Chase needs to tuck that ball away.

  • Frank

    Let’s see Phyllis doing some star gazing

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Such a deep team….just a few holes to fill and I am liking our future

    • Chris Tarrants

      the holes are still the same though. WR and another safety.

  • Frank

    Is Reid throwing in some “backups” in now? Maybe to seal the deal?

    • Chris Tarrants

      that would be awesome if Charles snuck in for a huge play in the fourth quarter

      • Frank

        That would be real cool, to get him some records. But I was meaning some of the 1s that did dress but have been riding the pine.

        • Chris Tarrants

          I was really hoping to see Bray today

          • Frank

            With the way this is going, I say leave the O alone. We need to tighten up on D still.

  • Blake Molina

    I wish somebody woulda hit Rivers so hard in the open field that he’d have dookie’d his white pants

  • 44WinMag

    It would suck to have 4th qtr collapse.

  • Blake Molina

    JESUS Allen Bailey is a brick wall

    • Frank

      “Stopped” Matthews. Right. Crap, Smith is hurt.

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

    I do not want to see Rivers all fired up at the end of this game. The boys need to close the deal.

    • Chris Tarrants

      Agreed but you can see the momentum shifting and Rivers starting to get fired up

  • Frank

    Coop looking back that time. Good coverage.

  • worsttofirst

    Nice Coop.

  • Chris Tarrants

    Did Reid forget to find a replacement for Smith in this game?

  • Blake Molina

    Uh oh, Sean Smith in pain

  • micah stephenson

    I hope S.Smith is ok

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Wow did I here that right? First penalty on the Chiefs today??

  • Frank

    Wow. First penalty of the day on our team. Didn’t realize that. And with so many nonstarters.

  • JDInOregon

    Come on backup defense! Stand!

  • Frank

    Mathews looks hurt too. Pick 6 anyone on this next play? Let’s give the D a nice pump here at the end.

    • worsttofirst

      And run over Phyllis on the way.

  • worsttofirst

    Slow down their drive by injuries.

  • Frank

    If SD does win this, and yes all my anti jinx Voodoo is in place, how confident could they be knowing they struggled all game against our second string?

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Damn it

  • Frank

    Aw man. How did he get that release? Ah, rub route. Seems like we are seeing a lot of that this year. DCs need to scheme that soon.

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

    Come on, boys. Put up 7 and send these jerks into the offseason.

    • Frank

      Long, slow drive, would also be nice in getting there.

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

        Yep. Long drive and points.

  • JDInOregon

    Hemingway nice job on the catch for first down.

  • Canad-Ian

    AJ Jenkins is starting to gain some confidence. Spells trouble for Colts in the playoffs

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Hemingway-to-go!

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

    Chiefs need to get Knile outside. This offensive line is looking tired. These guys haven’t played an entire NFL game.

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

    Come on Andy, stay aggressive. Nothing to lose.

  • micah stephenson

    They know we running on 1st down. Hit em wit the playaction fake on 1st.

  • Phillip Maxwell

    That looked bush league

    • JDInOregon

      Not the greatest play calling. Ran on first down both times.

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

      Yeah but to be fair, it IS bush league.

      • Phillip Maxwell

        Lol, you have a point.

  • Frank

    Look at Junior working and being physical. Use that size man, use it. A.J. and Avery on fly routes would have been cool.

  • micah stephenson

    Why not throw for the 1st down or nothing at all?

    • Frank

      AS11 isn’t in. CD runs for the first or nothing at all.

  • Heilios

    guysthere is one thing to remember. it’s their ones versus our twos. this is already a win regardless the score

    • Canad-Ian

      ya… but lets win this!!

  • worsttofirst

    Alright D time to get nasty.

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

    Not sure our boys can stop them. They’ll need to force a turnover.

  • Frank

    Could it be time for Lewis to make a big play for us? iNT or FF?

  • Chris Tarrants

    defense is just gassed

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

    Seems like Sutton has called off the dogs. Might be time to dial up a couple of those blitzes.

    • Frank

      Soft D. Playing not to lose instead of playing to win.

  • worsttofirst

    Stand it up

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

    Robinson is washed up.

  • Frank

    How the heck did 55 catch him?

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

    Chiefs have been getting killed on crossing routes all season.

  • Frank

    21 and 23 need to go play on some other team.

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Come on! T.O. Time!

  • Chris Tarrants

    wow i am impressed with that stand

  • Frank

    Crying for a flag when he threw it a half step from a sack.

  • Canad-Ian

    Think about our offence… Sixth rounder snaps it to first career start QB, play action to 3rd rounder, looking down field to 1st round bust and former 7th rounder.

    • Frank

      And, we haven’t been down all game.

  • Frank

    Let’s go CD10. GWD!!!!!!!

  • micah stephenson

    Can we get a fg to win it?

    • Frank

      Works for me.

  • Chris Tarrants

    methodical march into fieldgoal range to end their season with no time left on the clock! calling it now

    • micah stephenson

      Way to go waaaaaay out on a limb on that one. Who wud have ever thought of that? Lol

  • Frank

    KO run back for TD anyone?

  • Frank

    AJ and Avery on the fly route now?

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

    Let’s do it!

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

    All we need is clock eating and FG range.

    • JDInOregon

      And AR chose a pass on first down. Yes.

      • Chris Tarrants

        not just a pass but a play action pass!!!!!

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

    Yes. YES!

  • Chris Tarrants

    FEAR THE BEARD

  • worsttofirst

    Hey no run on first down, what the?

    • Frank

      Mixing it up. Gotta love it. I still REALLY want to see the double fly routes.

      • JDInOregon

        I liked getting it to McGrath. Now AR can call anything he chooses on first down. Just not that stupid bubble screen type of crud, I hate that. ;-)

  • Frank

    Me the beard is back. Limping some. Awkward turn?

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

    Good point by the announcers. Chiefs have nothing to lose here.

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

    FG range!

  • Frank

    Nice. Working the cannon.

  • Chris Tarrants

    Rivers looks whiny already

    • Frank

      Since he got hit on that throwaway by the goal line.

  • worsttofirst

    Niiiiiice Hemingway!!

  • micah stephenson

    Chase looking better than Alex! Lol

    • Chris Tarrants

      ANDDDDD there it is, been waiting all game

  • Frank

    Now we should run some clock. No sacks. Run it down and kick for the win if we don’t score.

  • JDInOregon

    BREAKING. Andy Reid has signed the entire freshman football squad from Shawnee Mission South to play the last two minutes, and beat the Chargers.

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

    KC can run it three times here and try to get a first. If they do, FG game over. If not, they will at least burn all of Phillis’ timeouts. They can still get the FG from here if Succop is true.

    • Chris Tarrants

      run on first down and play action on second they wont see it coming

    • JDInOregon

      Well, that’s what happened the first San Diego game, everyone thinks KC scored too quickly.

  • Phillip Maxwell

    I was wondering what was taking you so long!–lol

    • Phillip Maxwell

      This was to Micah

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

    Should the Chiefs run three times or try one more safe pass to get another first?

    • JDInOregon

      Nothing to lose I vote play action again.

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

    If KC has a clever new run in their back pocket, now is the time to call it.

    • Frank

      There you go.

  • Frank

    Run’ run, run, run, run, repeat.

    • JDInOregon

      But Davis went out of bounds!

  • Chris Tarrants

    hahahahahaha game!

  • JDInOregon

    Forward progress gives KC the first down!

  • Phillip Maxwell

    1. 2 3. First down!!

  • Frank

    Hold onto the ball.!!!!!!

  • Chris Tarrants

    just kneel it lol

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

    This is so awesome. Really proud of our boys even if something should go wrong.

  • ladner morse

    How does 12-4 sound?

    Any one? Any one?

  • Frank

    If AR calls a timeout here, to settle things down, someone should smack him.

    • JDInOregon

      Be my guest. I hope you are quick, because he might sit on a person. ;-)

  • 44WinMag

    40 yarder is no guarantee

  • Chris Tarrants

    this reminds me of 2003 and almost every game we played that year

    • 44WinMag

      Meah, that was one of the worst Defenses in History.

      • Chris Tarrants

        what? i was referring to the game coming down to a last second fieldgoal but either way its null and void

  • Frank

    Didn’t want to try the outside I guess. Too much risk of running out of bounds.

  • JDInOregon

    Andy Reid is coach of the year.

  • Frank

    Come on Ryan. Do your thing. Good snap, good hold, good kick.

  • micah stephenson

    :-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-) wow!

  • Chris Tarrants

    are you kidding me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Frank

    You’ve got to be kidding me.

  • 44WinMag

    Dag gone it, I could feel that coming from a 1000 miles away

  • JDInOregon

    Oh fer cryin out loud. I think I just hurt my hand hitting the table.

  • micah stephenson

    Good way to end the regular season. Wait. Nevermind. I was ready to celebrate!

  • Frank

    PR knelt it. Weak. Now I hope we win the toss and run it back.

  • ladner morse

    Time for a new kicker. Really.

    • KCMikeG

      I having been asking for at least some competition in camp. He is awful from 40+ and we have little hope from 50+ meanwhile other teams have kickers making 50+ routinuely and some even making 60+ yard FG’s. He has missed two weeks in a row. We HAVE to be able to depend on our kicker to make these kinds of kicks. It will cost us a playoff win mark my words.

  • Canad-Ian

    He kicked it almost perfectly straight

  • worsttofirst

    The collective groan in KC

  • Phillip Maxwell

    I’ve been a fan 22 years…this doesn’t surprise me.

  • ladner morse

    Why didn’t they center the ball up on the run???????????

    • Canad-Ian

      Some kickers like it on the right hash if they kick with their right leg… I guess

    • micah stephenson

      Everbody knows run it left to set up the kicker.

  • Tony Parker

    that would have made too much sense

  • Davé

    Succop sucking it up

  • Davé

    i swear that smirk on Andys face said : i did that on purpose

  • micah stephenson

    Wow!

  • Frank

    Feels like it slipped away. Of course, the only thing going for us is that they are psyched out that they are play the backups dead even.

  • Tony Parker

    if SD makes it in they would draw Denver with a win. then they could knock Denver off and open it up for us……..

    • Frank

      Why can’t Pitt do that? Oh, wait, never mind.

      • Tony Parker

        exactly

    • Chris Tarrants

      NONONO Teo breaks mannings leg but denver wins anyways

      • Tony Parker

        ok, I’ll take that

    • Frank

      Or Manning chokes on a ball of Palomalus hair.

  • Chris Tarrants

    pick six? quick put all of our starters in to finish this game off :)

  • Davé

    Who do you really want facing Denver? San Diego or Pittsburgh?

    • Tony Parker

      sd

      • Davé

        i think it was really possible Andy asked him to miss that

  • Blake Molina

    It’ll just make wining that much sweeter! Rivers will pout and pout and pout

  • worsttofirst

    What happens if a tie here for playoff wild card race

    • KCMikeG

      SD is still in

    • Tony Parker

      sd is in with a tie

  • micah stephenson

    Drive killer!

  • Canad-Ian

    In a normal game if Marcus Cooper or Ron Parker were forced to start the QB would pick on them all game. You’d think Cry Baby Rivers would just take his pick

  • Chris Tarrants

    yyyyyyeeeeeeessssssss

  • JDInOregon

    What happened?

  • Tony Parker

    that ball was out

  • JDInOregon

    Review review review review

  • JDInOregon

    What the flying fuck? That was a damn fumble!

  • Frank

    He was stopped or the ball was out.

  • Davé

    how did they NOT REVIEW THAT

  • JDInOregon

    Once again the semi-pro officials bite KC in the ass.

  • Davé

    That was such a fumble how could they not review that

  • Davé

    officials are fucking bullshit

  • Chris Tarrants

    this is bullshit

  • Davé

    god did we get fucked

  • Tony Parker

    that ball was stripped, should have been end of game

  • JDInOregon

    I thought in overtime it’s up to the replay assistant! What the fuck!

  • micah stephenson

    Dam Succop!!!

  • Frank

    Blitz was too fast?

  • Tony Parker

    wtf Demps

  • Frank

    Too close now. Need a strip.

  • Tony Parker

    their gonna run it now

  • Canad-Ian

    Succop ruined my day

    • Tony Parker

      you from Canada as well?

  • Frank

    Yes, it does seem like they want to run it a lot.

  • JDInOregon

    Obviously gotta hold them to FG attempt.

  • Davé

    are reviews from the booth? Did we have a chance to challenge?

    • JDInOregon

      My understanding is there are no challenges–it’s up to the booth. Another epic NFL fail. You can bet if it were Denver they would have had it reviewed.

  • Tony Parker

    we have hold them to FG

  • Jordan

    WHAT TGE FUCK WAS THAT NO REVIEW SAY HE GOT FIRST DOWN YET HE FUMBLED AND WE RUN IT IN FOR A TOUCHDOWN THEY NEVER BLEW A WHITSTLE THEREFORE HE EITHER WAS SHORT OF FIRST OR HE FUMBLE!

    • Justin R Groth

      total robbery on that one

  • Davé

    how man epic game changing shit calls have fucked up over this year

  • Tony Parker

    yes

  • Frank

    Robinson makes some nice tackles behind the line.

    • Davé

      and plays like an idiot beyond it

  • Canad-Ian

    Great read by Dunta

  • Frank

    Run back? Or do I get to see AJ and Avery on the fly?

    • Davé

      we lose here, someone beyond the clouds hates the Chiefs

      • JDInOregon

        They’re not beyond the clouds, they are on Park Avenue in New York City.

  • Davé

    how on earth was that not a fumble, or at the least a review. My mind is blown. I cannot possibly grasp what happened there. Forward progress was never stopped, he never touched the ground, the ball never touched the ground, the play was never whistled dead, what the fuck happened?

    • JDInOregon

      And notice the CBS announcers have not even explained it. Because there is no explanation, it’s a complete crock.

      • Frank

        Agree they usually talk all day about big plays. That was big, and nothing. Only one quick replay.

        • Canad-Ian

          Biggest coverup since 911

  • JDInOregon

    What a game for McCluster.

  • Frank

    Come on boys. Get 6 and send them home.

  • JDInOregon

    And that was PI, not holding. Gew god NFL.

    • Davé

      they wont call PI if the ball isnt around the receiver

      • Frank

        Perhaps it would have been around him if he wasn’t interfered with.

      • sidibeke

        Not true. They’ll call offensive PI if an O player starts to block before it’s caught. They have against KC. Should be able to call that the other way, too.

  • Tony Parker

    excellent, its nice setting up the dolts fans and then crushing their hopes again

  • Frank

    Weak officials on big plays.

  • Phillip Maxwell

    I guess it’s because this game has no meaning but, I have thoroughly enjoyed this game

  • Tony Parker

    I thought that was PI

  • Frank

    I know Chase has had lots of time all day, but come on.

  • micah stephenson

    This sum bulls**t!!!!

  • Davé

    Chase ends the game like a fucking moron

  • JDInOregon

    Pittsburgh has grounds to sue.

  • micah stephenson

    SD don’t deserve this win!

  • Tony Parker

    fucking bullshit refs again

  • JDInOregon

    Well, entertaining as hell, and now all KC has to do is build such an enormous lead in Indy that no officials could possibly cost them the game. Simple.

  • micah stephenson

    Bullshit! Making SD feel like they did something!

  • JDInOregon

    Well thanks again for the company you all! Have a great week!

  • micah stephenson

    This sum bullshit!!!!

  • Frank

    Announcers talking them up. They had to go to OT to beat our2s. Sure hope this works out well for us. Maybe they can beat Cincy.

  • Davé

    Oh man were we fucked royally by Succop and the Officials. Meaningless game anyway, just wanted to crush some hopes. Really San Diego had that much trouble with our backups?

    • micah stephenson

      Don’t matter. They in the playoffs with a chance to win the superbowl!

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Im still confused how ripping the ball out of a players hands before the whistle is blown is not a turnover

  • Davé

    Well good to know we cant rely on Succop to win us a playoff game.

  • KCMikeG

    Can’t wait to see the NFL Director of officiating explain how they identified the spot and why it wasn’t a fumble.

    • Davé

      they won’t have to. Never will anyone bring it up. Guaranteed

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Good job Lin Succup

  • micah stephenson

    I’m pissed!

    • sidibeke

      Me, too.

  • Phillip Maxwell

    This could work in our favor

    • micah stephenson

      How?

      • Davé

        Chargers have a much better chance at beating Broncos than Steelers do.

  • Davé

    How many times are we going to have to complain about the officials legitimately costing us a win.

    • Frank

      Opefully not anymore this year.

  • Davé

    Succop so fucked over the backups. They would have flown home so excited, happy, eager for the playoffs. Now they will go back with a stinging loss instead. Succop for the loss. Fucker

  • Phillip Maxwell

    San Diego takes down Cincy then heads to Denver.
    We take down Indy and head to New England.
    I personally like our chances against NE

    • Travis Forsyth

      true, i’d rather play a banged up pats team than losing to denver…AGAIN.

    • Garion

      The game(s) ended exactly how Reid and the staff wanted them to today, for exactly the reason you have posted. The Chiefs have a strategically better shot at a deep playoff run this way rather than if the Steelers had been in.

      • sidibeke

        I like our chances against Den if we see them again. I hope we do.

  • Travis Forsyth

    here’s a little fun fact: every team since 2009 that played in the eagles home opener went on to win the super bowl…saints in 09, packers in ’10, giants in ’11 and the ravens in ’12…the chargers played the in phillie’s home opener this year….

  • JDInOregon

    Hours later I’m still thinking about that horrible officiating. Turns out San Diego was over-loaded with eight men to one side on the FG at the end of regulation and the officials missed it. That would have moved Succop five yards closer with a re-try. No wonder Succop kicked it right, there were eight Chargers coming from the other side.

    Then there was the fake punt and fumble that was inexplicably ruled dead despite the fact the pile was still moving forward. There was no replay review of the spot of the ball, which is in fact reviewable. They basically just took the ball from KC and went “here you go, San Diego, first down!” No explanation by the officials or the horrid CBS crew announcing the game, and only one quick replay where it sure looked like the ball was coming out while the runner was still fighting for yardage and moving forward.

    That’s going to be a major shitstorm for the NFL this week. And it should, because they really need to get the officiating together for the playoffs. If they want people to buy into their endless replays (which after all allow even more commercials,) the least they could do is get things right. Sadly, the officiating this year has been pretty poor in terms of consistency.

    As I stated before, the only solution for the Chiefs is to build a big enough lead that poor officiating cannot rob them in Indy as well.
