While the Chiefs don’t need Smith throwing the ball 40 times a game they need to throw more and attack with their offense when they get up on opponents early. The past two weeks Kansas City has just about given the game away on offense as they have just tried to pound the ball down the field.

With Jamaal Charles they may have been more effective but West and Ware aren’t capable of beating defenses by themselves without decent run blocking. To take it a step further even Charles would struggle when you look at the amount of times the Chiefs are having opponents crowd the box against them begging them to throw the ball to beat them.

Kansas City’s defense has kept the teams they’ve faced from being mostly effective but still start slow most games. They allowed a team with their third-string quarterback score two passing touchdowns on plays that were way too easy. The first TD was a pass to the fullback who was uncovered out of the backfield and the second TD was a ridiculous Hail Mary that I still can’t figure out what the defense was doing.

The second the ball was released by Clausen the entire secondary should have been headed to cover the area where the ball was headed as it still ended up short of the end zone. Instead of being in position to keep the ball and the players in front of them most of the defensive backfield ended up to the left of the receiver and left him an easy walk in TD after the catch.
