Podcast: Believe it or not, Chiefs vs. Jets is a must-win game

KANSAS CITY, MO - NOVEMBER 26: Quarterback Alex Smith
KANSAS CITY, MO - NOVEMBER 26: Quarterback Alex Smith /
Sunday’s game against the Jets is amazingly, and perhaps

It’s not a pleasant fact, but it’s still a fact. The

The Steelers’ game gave the Chiefs a chance to cement themselves as bonafide contenders, capable of beating anybody in professional football. Now, this week at the Jets, the Chiefs have to prove that they’re capable of beating somebody in professional football.

Also on today’s show, Arrowhead Addict editor Matt Conner joins me to talk about all of the messes needing to be fixed with this team and why we might need to trust the Chiefs to make the right decision regarding their starting quarterback whether we like it or not. Those closest to the situation between Alex Smith and Patrick Mahomes are also those with the most at stake, which is something to consider for everyone serving as armchair quarterbacks at this point in the season.

Also on the Roughing the Kicker podcast, Arrowhead Pride writer Kent Swanson breaks down the All-22 to unearth the most troubling parts of Alex Smith’s recent slide. (And, unlike many analysts at this point in the season, Kent contends that he has a fix for the Alex Smith problem.)
