Alex Gibbs was the Chiefs O-Line coach in '93 and '94 and the Chiefs O-Line never resorted to those type of tactics. Like I said before, the deck was stacked in '97 and '98, to give Elway those two SB's as his going away present because he was never good enough to win one outright on a level playing field.
The current Broncos are like an ESPN mogul's dream come true. It combines Shannon Sharpe & Tom Jackson's former team with Manning's media hype, and Elway was somehow involved. Can we say commercial airtime sales?
Personally I hope KC doesn't buy into the hype, and stays under the radar. Screw ESPN. Chris Berman or Tom Jackson's blessing won't make any team run faster, tackle better or catch passes. They gotta do that on their own. Chiefs coverage on Metro Sports does a better job anyway.
Those two stats have nothing to with yards gained or allowed. They are a direct result of these stats:
Points per game: 23.7
Points allowed per game: 11.3
Those stats are heavily influenced by these stats:
The Bears beat the Steelers tonight 40-23. The Bears had 258 yds (151 passing); the Steelers had 459 yds (379 passing). Which team would you rather be; the 0-3 Steelers with all the yards or the 3-0 Bears with all the points?
I'd surely like to see us be a team that puts up 450 yards per game, but most of all I want us to win. I'll take an ugly win over a pretty loss every day of the week.
hahahahahaha, espn has been **** for years. And stop with the media loves them stuff, they get more money and ratings from manning and the broncos then they do alex smith and the chiefs. Facts don't matter anymore, it's all about ratings, its the reason why when tebow does anything, they'll report it, it's why when the baseball playoff race is heating up (go braves!) they still talk about football in the early weeks of the season (college and NFL), It's the reason why big market cities (Dallas, NY, Chi.) get more coverage and have their own espn page over small market teams. Also teams that are consistent and win playoff games and titles will get more talk. The sooner you learn this and get over it the better. Besides, i don't want the media to talk about us, then all the bandwagon fans will jump on.
And the broncos super bowls in 97 and 98.......i'm over it, it was about 15 years ago. KC just needs to win some.
The video of Reid and Sal Pal at the end of the game pretty much tells how much the Chiefs give a damn what ESPN does. I enjoyed that almost as much as the final score, props to Andy on that.

I'm fine with the lack of respect, it just serves to fuel our fire.
+56 differential will do that, just sayin' ;)
