Wow they did not look good tonight, lets hope they keep up the good work. :lol:


After seeing that, and seeing the Chiefs really look good, I hope we can take this division this year and do something in the playoffs.

That is exactly what I said when the Chiefs went 0-4 in the preseason last year. Then it just kept on going.

The biggest mistake CP made was that deep throw to DHB. Most of the other passes were drops by the WR's. Overall, the O was atrocious....time to press the panic button...uh no.

The D look like world beaters on the run game....time thump my chest and proclaim this to be a top 5 D.....uh no.

THIS

The only reason I would be worried is if your team looked completely not ready for football like we did a year ago. That was horrible. And the team was not ready to where they should have been by the start of the regular season. That's the only reason I would be worried at this point.

with a seasoned veteran team that has been together forever. or the system has. the pre season does not much matter at all.

i will say this dont judge because of 1 game in the pre season.

DMC is without a doubt is the KEY to offensive success. His presence opens up the offense and takes preassure off the passing game. DMAC can score from anywhere on the field. Palmer did pretty good last year considering he literally came off the couch by weak 7 last season. Now with a full offseason and RunDMC in the backfield, this O could be one of the most explosive O's in the Leauge.

You do make some valid points. You do want to build confidence, but at expense of exposing everything in preseason to get a meaningless win? No.

It was one game....but toss out another goose game next game...you start raising some eyebrows.

As I said, the Raiders run D looked imposing....but it was one game in preseason....that doesn't tell me much either.

The preseason and the regular season play is vastly different.

Well then, May DMAC stay healthy for the entire season! May all the Chief's starters stay health. I want no excuses this season for losses because of injuries!

+1. It's the preseason. Take it all with a grain of salt...

IMHO the Raiders have a really good defensive line. They won't be pushovers. Carson Palmer has one or two years left in the tank. It'll be interesting to see how the Raiders change without creepy Uncle Al running the show.

Another thing that concerns me is the fact they, like the Chiefs, have skirted under the radar as far as press coverage goes.

The preseason does have some meaning as far coaches evaluating talent, and players wanting to make the team. The preseason is NOT a good indicator as to how well a team may do in the RS. What you don't want to see is you're team get manhandled at the line of scrimmage on either side of the ball.....that IS something that will carry over into the RS. If there is a preseason game that may give you a glimpse of things to come, it would be the 3rd PS game. Even with that, it's hard to tell. People who have watch football for 30+ years like myself may tend to agree.

Throw out anything after the first team comes out of the preseason games.

Game 1 with the starters does gauge how your training camp is going.

chief31
08-16-2012, 12:03 AM
The W/L record doesn't mean anything, since your actual team is only on the field for part of each game.

But having your starters making solid plays and beating other starters in one-on-one situations, or just running good routes, throwing good passes, making tough cuts, or reads is extremely telling of what your team is capable of doing when the season starts.

But it certainly does not mean that your starters WILL perform at the same level during the season as they do during the reason.

The games don't count. And even the plays do not count. But having the team playing well together is a very good sign.

Myself, I would never get too excited, nor worried about preseason results. Only if all four games are to one extreme. (Last years Chiefs are a good example.)

Stop saying it's preseason. Your starters beating the lions 10-6 is a hell of a lot better than the Chiefs getting beat 23-7 in their first half

Why...isn't it preseason? Look if the Chiefs come out and get whooped the first few games then go ahead and light the boards up. But good grief MMO these games mean absolutely NOTHING!

Would I like to see the Chiefs do better? Yes.

But you have to realize that we aren't running the play calls we're going to run during the regular season which means that the first game anyone should care about how we're doing is Sept. 9th.

Like I said I'd like to see the Chiefs out there beating up on the starters. But that we're not doesn't concern me that much.

Injuries are going to happen, and all 4 teams are thin, I can't wait to see horse mouth in the press conference after Manning has something happen that takes him a few weeks to recover from... rivers still sucks, and lets not forget the do-over oakland is going through, for the what, 8th year in a row now?

Why does everyone on this board disregard Manning as a has been. He had 2 rusty preseason games and then responded 10-12 122 yards and 2 td's against a team that was a play away from winning the super bowl.

I don't doubt Manning will be effective.....but behind a soft O line and no running to respect. The Donkeys aren't a shoe in to win the west.

bricooper78
09-03-2012, 11:48 PM
Denver ran due mainly to Tebow, and the option.

There is NO WAY they'll get those yards this year. none. won't happen. Tebow pulled the new and improved "next new thing" on the league, and got lucky due to people not being able to game plan due to no tape or time.
This year, without that, the donks are in for a reality check.

I do not discount their defense however, they do look solid. I just am not sold they have the offense required to win

bricooper78
09-03-2012, 11:55 PM
I got bumped from my updates dangit..

Another thing that was going to tie my rant together:

All that running saved that defense last year, now I said they're looking solid... BUT manning can "quick strike" and get them back in a game, which is going to stress a defense that isn't used to living on the field.
A 4 minute (total realtime) possession vs an 11.40 (realtime) possession adds up quickly, double so in thin air where they are chugging for O2 already.

I think the defense being on field more makes them less effective, and the offense doesn't dictate pace, I see this as an adjustment period at best, they'll have hiccups, and failures

Yoda
09-04-2012, 12:02 AM
But he does have a run game, and a line that has been absolutely outstanding this preseason

Uh, no the run game is average at best, this is why D's will key on the passing game. The O-line is soft, last year Tebow helped the O-line by scrambling.....Manning quick release may help unless he has to get rid of the ball before he wants to.

On the D side....their bread an butter is pass rush. But the DB's (aside from Champ) are below average. The biggest problem on D is their run D. In fact, Donkey fans are still hoping to o pick up a decent DT from the cut day scrap heap.

Hmmm....something tells me your a Donkey fan in disguise. :beat_DeadHorse:

bricooper78
09-04-2012, 02:05 PM
They have a good line and with Peyton the defense will be kept honest, which is why i think their runnin game will be effective.

1> won't need to rush constantly, yardage will go down.
2> time of possession goes down, defense gets tired.
3> tired defense, opposition can run on them, control tempo of the game.
4> they lose games.

That's my main points. I feel they should be better than last year, they almost have to be. But, every action causes and equal and opposite reaction.

These numbers won't look like this next year
