    first team looked very good except Brandon Flowers missed tackle that went for 50+yrd score.. And Thomas Jones Fumble.

    Also didn't like a couple play calls but overall was very happy with first team

    Blocking was a lot better today, allowed Cassel time and gave Jones more room to run. Jones looks like he's taking on a little JC, had a few runs where he showed the same patience that Charles has. We're going to have an incredible running game if McCluster is able to pick that up as well. Charles' vision really is impressive, he waits behind the line, and then behind the second tier of blocks before turning it on in the secondary, while other times he bolts right from the snap. Jones already looks like a completely different runner in trying to emulate that. Cassel wasn't flashy and there weren't any big plays, but as long as he doesn't turn it over and converts on 3rd like he has been, the running game will take care of the rest. He did look a little more confident today. Jones looked better as the game went along. His first few touches were awful. He fumbled, had a pass go right through his arms and threw so many moves at once that he faked himself out and went down almost untouched.

    On the defensive side it was a little better and a little worse. The starters didn't give up much at all in the running game. Except for some uncharacteristically accurate throws from Johnson and that mistake by Flowers (which I'm glad happened to him and not Carr, Lewis or Berry as we're all convinced he's already a stud) the secondary looked good. Early on it looked like the d was getting more pressure on the QB, but a second game without a sack is pretty disheartening. It does look like Romeo is having a pretty positive impact on the unit as a whole, which was especially apparent in that nickel package the announcers pointed out where he brought fast pressure and had the dbacks in a position to shut down the quick outlets.

    Thanks Aussie!

    Don't forget Javier Arenas returning kicks. His job on special teams will affect the offense greatly. Having the field cut in half can do wonders for an offense that struggles.
    (Disclaimer) I didn't watch the game, just saw a summary on NFL.com and parts on SportCenter.

    I also saw Cassel was accurate, but didn't have as many yards as I'd like to see. The tendency that I see is htrowing to TE's and RB's. Never breaking big plays, if the offense is going to be good, they skill guys need to make plays.

    Ready for the season.....Go KC!

    Most of his targets were going to receivers actually. Bowe had 3 catches and a few more targets than that. Chambers had a few and his TD pass was to Horne. They're just not going to be a deep ball team, which is fine because Bowe isn't a burner, Chambers is getting older and McCluster looks like he'll have most of his receptions out of the backfield or outlets near the line of scrimmage. If we have big plays this year its going they're going to come more from Charles and hopefully McCluster breaking off huge runs and less from Cassel's arm, which is fine as long as they keep moving the chains.

    Thanks Aussie!

    he was throwing to the TE and RB because those were his hot routes. The Bucs blitzed him a bunch and those are usually his first read when looking at a blitz. That is what impressed me the most. He was reading the defense, calling it out and the executing it.

    Positives are that Cassel looked great and our OL looked good. Our starting run defense looked good as well.

    Negatives are that we didn't get any pressure on the opposing QB, Matt Cassel can't stopped getting sacked, our pass defense was surprisingly poor, and that Tampa Bay's starters battled ours evenly despite being a bottom-3 team.

    I don't follow other teams like I do our Chiefs, so I could be off with my following thought.

    Our Chiefs were a losing record team last season, along with Tampa. If our Chiefs have improved during the off season, as we believe they have...is it not possible Tampa has done the same? In other words...just because Tampa had a poor record last season, doesn't necessarily mean they will this season...same is true of our Chiefs. Therefore, possibly our starters vs their starters battling evenly...doesn't indicate a negative aspect, rather a positive...'IF' Tampa has improved during the off season, that is, haha.

    Not to start a flame war here, but how much (if any) the Chiefs improved this offseason is up for debate.

    I think TB had a great draft, but they're easily 2-3 seasons away, and should be a bottom three team this season. Freeman will need time to grow, they have two rookie WRs and two rookie DTs. Not to mention they're in maybe the hardest division in the NFL.
