Game 3 thoughts
On Offense Alex Smith,Donnie Avery,Jamal Charles
Donnie Avery player of the game for sure
Defense created turnovers that won the game. And did a fairly good job against the Eagles High speed offense. Justin Houston is clearly in the running for AFC defensive player of the year through 3 weeks
Offense O LINE O LINE O LINE it's becoming a theme. Fisher played like a rookie and HAS to learn from it going forward. Bowe 1 catch From our number 1 WR not going to get the job done.
Defense a few big plays given up Mccoy tourched them on a number of plays they have to clean that up
Overall this is one the Chiefs were lucky to be in position to win late but they did go out and FINISH the job on offense late in that game. 3-0 Bring on the Giants
A win is a win. Ugly as last week. Rough.
Offense was rough, but defense and special teams performed a clinic tonight. This was an offense that was averaging 33 pts per game. We shut them down. Chief ran the ball when they had to. Would love them to run more pro-set formation with Jamaal Charles running off the tackle.
Offense wasn't great but that was one clutch drive late in the 4th which took time off the clock and enabled us to kick a field goal to go up by two scores with 3 minutes to go and effectively seal the game. At least they aren't a turnover machine like last year.
The defence continues to impress with Justin Houston being the standout player again.
great win and a promising 3-0 start.
Defense was amazing. Especially against this offense... just... wow. It's pick your poison on that D-line. Who do you double?? Tyson Jackson even got a lot of pressure tonight. I though he did a GREAT job. If TJ starts playing at a high level, things could get scary for this defensive unit. Unreal
BINGO !! That's how you spring him for those long distance runs.

I have said for a while that Smith just is not the guy to lead this team. He is playing like Cassel did two years ago. He has not made the mistakes that Cassel made this year, but unless the defense stays on the plus side of the turnovers, this team is going to have trouble. We need this offense to pick it up, when you get to a team that does not turn over the ball, we are going to be sent reeling.
A great road win. There were some frustrating moments, but there were also clutch plays -- especially Alex Smith's timely passes to Donnie Avery at critical moments that kept the Chiefs Offense on the field & the Eagles Offense off of it.
I told somebody before that the Niners letting Smith go could backfire on them. Alex doesn't always make good plays or good throws, but he's been getting the job done in the clutch when the Chiefs really need it. Alex is a proven winner and this is why Dorsey/Reid traded for him.
Pardon me, but just who is "the guy" to lead this team? Alex has done a great job leading this team. The Chiefs have won BECAUSE of him, not in spite of him. We kept hearing that SF won in spite of Alex Smith. That isn't the case, thus far, in KC.
