    Default Chiefs beat Texans.

    I know I said my ranting was over for the day but I had to get this off my chest... This is totally ridiculous.

    http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1184

    I put 4k in arrowcash on the Chiefs. Somebody else put 150...

    Is it that bad? Have the coaching staff screwed everything up so badly in the offseason that a team that has set RECORDS for lack of protection and production on the o-line is going to suddenly see the light and blow us up for 20-plus points?

    The Texan's offense has been terrible at best for years while the Chiefs defense has improved. It's true that we are not as strong on the offensive side of the ball as years past but I have seen nothing to say that the Texans have suddenly found themselves, either.

    Improved defense versus incompetent offense equals a low-scoring affair.

    38 points??? Get outta here with that! The Texans will be lucky to find the end zone once in this game and I think it's safe to say that the Chiefs won't be lighting up any score boards with AFL-type numbers this year. The ONLY way this happens is if LJ goes crazy for about 200 yards and a couple TD's or if Damon suddenly starts to light it up.

    Just because sports media has lumped the Chiefs into the category of crappy teams like the Lions and Cardinals of recent years, doesn't mean that it's true. The first snap of the regular season hasn't even been taken, yet somehow people know what team records will be at the end of the season and who will make the playoffs. They already know who the conference and superbowl champs will be.

    This is all speculation from so-called experts and self-proclaimed analysts. I don't know of anybody who has been granted the divine gift of foresight. So why take somebody's misinformed, ignorant opinion as fact before the event in question has even occured? Sure it's possible to make an educated guess but to automatically write the Chiefs off as a loss due to roster changes and coaching decisions without taking into consideration the poor production of the Houston Texans over the last several years, is just stupid.
    Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!

    The fact is that I too am expecting a losing season, but it wouldn't require a full-fledged miracle, for this team to be a competitor, this season.

    I think that we all expect some good things from the defense this year and if Mcintosh does an above-average job, then that gives a boost to our running game and improves the chances for Huard to repeat his stellar play from a year ago, or at least play well enough to make this team a contender.

    You appear to have absolutely no hope, where there is, at least, a glimmer. If you consider the above possibilities, and add in a sprinkle of luck, (which is a factor in everything) then this team could make some serious noise.

    Looking at the performance of this team, a year ago, What are the major changes? Improved defense; Improved Left Tackle position (leading to a better opportunity to throw the ball well and potentially, a little more running room.) Looking at this team in that light, it is easy to understand how someone could hold some hope, even some optimism.

    I may bring in some cloudy weather to the picture, most of the time, but you are trying to bring in something similar to an armageddon. Take a step back and look at how unwilling you have been to grant the slightest glimmer of hope. I just think that you are being exaggerated, in your pessemism. But, go ahead, I'm not trying to stop you. I just thought that I would point out where that glimmer of hope is coming from.

    As for the "experts", often times, it can be difficult to see the forrest, for the trees. When one is too close, things look different than what they look like from afar. Many "experts" are too close to have real perspective.

    I won't credit any of those "experts" as being all-knowing. I have absolutely zero doubt that there are many times, that NFL "experts are wrong, while a bunch of fans were right. You want to believe that everything falls were it belongs? I'm sorry for you. Because you are too easily convinced. Answer me this... How does George W. Bush become the President of the United States, then get elected to a second term? Often, the people who get the "job", whatever job that may be, are the absolute wrong people to have the job. What is your team presidents name in Arizona, again?
    and don't you forget it!

However, all I have said is that if you are going to point out all the flaws in this team, why not at least wait until they step out on the field in a regular season game and see what they can do. I do believe that I know more about the Chiefs than the average sports caster on ESPN or your local sports news caster. Just because they played football you think they went and studied every teams roster for the season. I think that a lot of analysts say what all the other guy are saying. That is exactly why the term "vanillla" has been popping up on every sports cast in the world. One guy said so now they all say it. I have heard guys talking about teams running attacks and how the Chiefs have one effective RB and other teams that have a dual attack. We have two pro bowl running backs don't we?? Where is their 10 years of knowledge there?? Playing football for 10 years does not make you a good analyst. It makes you a good player. They may know more about the game of football, they do not know more about the Chiefs. Believe me when I say that if the Chiefs sh*t the bed this year then yes, I will ***** and complain, and I will be doing that because I believe that the players on this team have the ability and talent to put together a good season and I will be pissed if they do not take advantage of the situation but you will not catch me talking about how ****ty they are going to be until I watch a game or two thi season. If your analysts know so much about the game and who is gonna win and lose why don't they make billions betting of football? Next time you listen to some "expert analysis" see what their records are picking winning teams.
    I also will cheer for us to have a good season.

    One thing your getting twisted here is that it is of MY opinion that I say we will have a rough season!! The guys on tv don't influence what I think! I can't help it if I agree with them.

    As far as you complaining about why they are bad goes, you say you wil do so because of the fact that you think they have the talent to do better. Well, if they don't do as well as you think they are going to, doesn't that prove otherwise? This is my point!! I don't think we have a ton of talent at certain positions! This is why I think we will struggle!

    Avg. at best O line
    2 career back up QB's fighting for a starting position.
    1 decent and aging WR and 1 rookie with potential.
    Special teams is bad.
    All crucial positions that are important for a winning season.
    Yes we have an avg D. A stud RB and TE that will keep us in a few games but they will wear down throughout the season and need a little help!

    I am not argumentative as some of you think. I realize this is a Chiefs fan site but why is it not ok for someone to look at things from a pessamistic side of things? I see Cheifster is not chiming in and I believe he is almost as pesamistic about the season as I am but I could be wrong. I believe he just chooses not to get into this which is fine but I choose to give you my opinion just as you choose to give me yours!

    I think you need to learn how to not get so defensive when someone see's things from a different point of view than yours! It's not the end of the world and you are not the almighty football god!! They are just opinions, some will turn out to be right and some will turn out to be wrong but for you to continue to suggest that you know more about this or any other team than anybody else is ridiculous! Your a fan like all of us. If you want to talk about blood pressure or starting an IV great, I'm sure you might know a little more about that than the rest of us but from now on when someone's opinion differs from yours, your more than welcome to share your opinion with them but no need for you to tell them how wrong they are for having that opinion!!

The numbers you chose all added up and u have a logical reason for why any chance we have of winning is "COMICAL" I think I speak for most people when I say any argument about why we are gonna be bad is bullsh*t until we see what happens on the field. Sure we were 9-7 and when we went to the playoffs last year....I know we backed into it....kinda like the Steelers the year before (SuperBowl Champs) in our playoff spot at 10-6. Do the "analysts" say that they backed in?? Ever wonder why that is?? Maybe some analysts who were in the league fo 10 or 12 years are a little biased towards some teams?? OH wait....they are on TV so they must know everything!! If I am wearing Rose Colored glasses then I am not gonna take them off, and if I am a homer then "D'oh" and if the Chiefs chances of winning are Comical then get ready to laugh your *** off!!
    I ALWAYS see Tom Jackson looking through rose colored glasses at the Donkeys, for example.
