Week 1: win
Week 2: loss
Week 3: Loss (just because KC plays poorly in Miami)
Week 4: loss
Week 5: loss
Bye
Weel 7: loss
Week 8: Toss up, leaning toward win (if st. louis drafts clowney......)
week 9: Toss, leaning toward loss (that D is really good for NYJ)
week 10: Toss, Leaning toward win (should have the better team but they're always giving KC problems, could of beat KC last year)
week 11: Loss
week 12: Loss (and if anyone knows me i always do a 3-3 record in the AFC West)
week 13: Win (see above point)
week 14: toss up, depends on which carson palmer decides to show up, and can that D save him if he plays poorly. leaning toward loss
week 15: Win
week 16: Toss, its Pitts, they play tough. Leaning toward win
week 17: Win

So i could see a 4-12 to about 10-6 (my early prediction right now is 6-10)

I think 12-4 is the best case scenario but prolly more close to 8-8.

Im saying we lose to New England, san Francisco, at denver, and seatle for sure bit other than that its a toss up. Not saying we will lose to those 4 teams but those are the 4 hardest games I feel that we will be the underdog.

I'm picking us to go 10-6, and at worst, 8-8. Within the division think we will sweep Oakland but split the series with the Donks and SD. Think that after the bye week we'll start to pick up momentum and get better as a team. The four strongest challengers I see on this schedule are the Patriots, 49ers, Seahawks and Broncos. Every other team is beatable, unless magical things happen at their front offices, coaching staff, and rosters.

I'm gonna wait 'til after the 3rd pre-season game to make my official game-by-game prediction. I want to see who gets what in the draft, what players are subsequently released and go to other teams and how the starters perform in pre-season games first. I did pick us to go 11-5 last year but I think I had us losing three games we won and winning 3 games we lost.

The four strongest challengers I see on this schedule are the Patriots, 49ers, Seahawks and Broncos.
I remember last year the Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins and Texans all looked like likely losses before the season began and we swept those teams. I agree with you that these 4 teams appear to be the toughest, but ...

I have a feeling that the Pats are on the decline. Their offense was way down last year, even though the almost always found a way to win, and they will have a lot of personnel changes this year.

I wish the 49ers game was @Arrowhead but it isn't. Last year Reid had the Chiefs ready to face the Eagles team that fired him and I can see a similar outcome with Smith going up against a team that thought he was "not good enough." I think Alex will have a monster game. He knows the team and he will have something to prove.

Super Bowl winners almost always have a steep drop off the following year. I really don't see that happening with the Seahawks, but history says it is more likely than not.

Right now, I also think we will split with the Broncos. The Seahawks, Colts and even the Chargers showed us how to handle them last year. The question is can we upgrade our defense enough to get the job done? We came close in Denver last year when our defense was still healthy but they are tough to beat in that thin Mile-High air.

16-0? No, I'm not predicting that. Not by a long shot. As tough as this schedule looks on paper I think 10-6 would be a major success, but the potential is there to do much better than that. I just want to see how the rest of the off-season and pre-season plays out first.

Agreed on many points, TR. There's a lot that can happen between now and August, let alone what can happen over the course of the season.

Yeah, the Pats are on the decline. But lets put this in perspective...A declining Pats team is still better than half the teams out there. They still have a great HC, HOF QB, and a good front office. A bad season for them is when they go 11-5. When they come to Arrowhead, that's going to be a good game.

There's a lot of factors to consider with the Donks games, but the games last year, we shot ourselves in the foot. They can be beaten. If we march into SA stadium and beat them, that would be a huge statement.

The Seahawks won't be a repeat of the Ravens. The challenge the Seahawks will have is everyone trying to study or copy what they did. Like the Pats, they've got an experienced HC, great QB and good front office.

Yep.

Fortunately, the games aren't decided on paper in the Spring. They are decided on the field in the Fall (mostly). I can't wait to get to it!

No one wants to hear that. We have our NEW GM (Dorsey/Pioli), coach(Reid,Marty) and QB saviors (Al/Cassel). It's the same ole, same ole. Trying to find someone else's discarded old, mediocre, "big" thing instead of the NEXT, BIG, THING.

So KC, like other NFL lemmings, feebly chasing to emulate another team's success, will continue to do so. As if being part of the GB or NE franchise gives you special NFL powers through relativity.

The Chiefs either don't care to, or, have no clue how to, run a successful football TEAM. They do know how to run a succe$$ful football franchise.

And tell me what next BIG thing has been out there since Dorsey took over? Last year the debate was for Geno Smith. UMMMMMM did you see how he played? It was pretty damn ugly more often then it was pretty. Dorsey just hasn't had a big thing out there to get. How is he suppose to? What do you want him to do?

OUCH! That is a TOUGH schedule. But then I thought last year with all those NFC East teams was tough too, so what do I know?

Roy is right....way too early to be making predictions. But we're Chiefs fans so it is what we do.

For the moment I see us at 9-3 with 4 "possibles". We'll probably split the "possibles" and lose 2 of the games I figure for wins so I am guessing 9-7.

Those 9 wins I'm counting on include splitting with donks and dolts. Sweeping Oakland. Splitting with Rams and Arizona. Also includes whooping the 9ers. Alex Smith is going to pull that game out in the last 4 minutes. Payback is a female dog and he aims to have some......BBQd!!!

For now, and assuming we stay relatively healthy, I say absolute worst case is 7-9; best case 10-6. I figure that at week 17 we're holding our breath and hoping for a couple of teams to lose so we can sneak into the playoffs.


You guys have to remember right now we are about 25% worse on talent then we're last year.

And that would put us at 8-8 or 9-7.

Wow! I didn't realize that Dexter McCluster and Kendrick Lewis were 25% of the talent. Everyone else has been replaced.

I think it's a dumb idea. if they owners could, they would let every team into the playoffs.

Never heard of any such concept in the NFL, AAFC, AFL, WFL, USFL, NFL Europe, CFL. Please point us to one instance where there was talk of all teams in a pro-level football league participating in the playoffs.

Each conference has 6 teams out of 16 that get post-season. The talk is expanding it to 8 teams in each conference. Not dumb at all.

It's not a dumb idea because it would mean more revenue for the NFL, but I'm against it. It used to be that only 4 teams from each conference made the playoffs; one from each division and one wild card. When the NFL went to four divisions they added a 2nd wild card making the current format of 6 teams from each conference with the two top conference winners getting a first round bye.

Going to 8 teams in each conference would eliminate the bye for the 4 teams with the best records. It would also water down the accomplishment of making the playoffs. We already have teams getting in at 8-8 and even 7-9. Expanding the number of playoff teams would guarantee that this happens on a regular basis.

In the NBA this happens all the time with 16 out of 30 teams making the playoffs. However, they play a 7 game series in each round so the worst seeds are almost always eliminated in the first or second rounds. In the NFL each round is only one game. There is too high a chance that lucky bounces or untimely injuries would let weaker teams advance. I don't want to see a 13-3 team get knocked out in the first round by a 6-10 team just because they had one bad game.

I like the format the way it is now. It allows the best teams to "earn" an extra week of rest and teams with very good records (like the Chiefs at 11-5 last year) aren't kept out of the playoffs just because they were in a very tough division. It should​ be difficult to make the playoffs. I don't want to see that achievement watered down any further.

^^Sorry, TR, but I must differ with you. Go back to 1969 when the AFL in it's final season decided to expand it's postseason from 2 teams to 4. The Chiefs have their only SB trophy because of it. They got a crack at both the division winners ( Jets and Raiders ) and beat them both in their park.

If a 13-3 team gets knocked off by a 9-7 team or 7-9 team, then too bad. When you get your chance in the post-season, you have to be ready, regardless of what your record was in the regular season.

Going to 8 teams would not lesson the difficulty of getting to the playoffs by that much & I personally would like to see the bye week eliminated from the post-season.

I'm not saying they've proposed it but if they got the go ahead they would, it would mean more $$$$$ in their pocket, which is what this expansion of playoffs and expansion of the regular season (18 games) is all about.

I'm not for 18 games and neither are the players. But, 8 teams in the post-season in each conference isn't so drastic. And all teams in the post-season, like you were suggesting, isn't going to happen, so I have no clue as to why one would even entertain that thought.

Eydugstr
04-29-2014, 04:38 PM
As far as extending the playoffs, I'd be for it. The extra revenue could mean a lot for the cities the teams play in.

If injuries are an issue, why not expand the rosters? Give teams more players to rotate over the course of the season might go a long way to cut down on injuries.
