    Preseason football is exactly for games like the Chiefs played last night. There's a reason no one wins preseason awards.

    The preseason is for teams to get back in the flow of playing in games. It is also for teams to get the kinks out they are used for teams to get film on all there players so the coaches can go to work on what a given player needs to work on before the games start to count. It is for teams to get there rookies/new players use to playing with there new teams/teammates. It is for spots on the team to be won and lost and that's what the coaches work on most. They don't sit and watch hours of film of the upcoming team they're going to face. They are to busy watching film of there own guys so they can begin to figure out who they want on the final spots of there roster. They watch limited film of there next opponent and put together a very basic gameplan for that team. But nothing like they do in the real season.

    A bad presesaon can't be completly ignored you have to work on the things you struggled on but it's results should be taken with a grain of salt. While there are some things that are of concern on this team right now they still have almost a month to work on those. The sky is not Falling just yet. RELAX

    At this point the truth is we have almost no real idea how Smith will turn out. We have seen him do pretty well for one drive against a weak defense and we have seen him do not so well against a defense that knew him like the back of their hand and was blitzing him like crazy. We just don't really know much. However, I do know one thing......he is never going to be known as "The Mad Bomber".

    As I have said before, he is our QB now for better or worse and we don't have much behind him on the depth chart so I think as fans of the Chiefs we need to support him and hope for the best.

    Spot on.

    BTW, as for the "MAD BOMBER" part, I take it that you may have seen Daryle Lamonica (Mad Bomber was his nickname) in his heyday with the Raiders from 1967-1970. You are quite right, Alex Smith is not going to go for broke and heave the ball 60 yards down the field every other play like Lamonica seemingly did in those days.

    Speaking of a "mad bomber"... is there anyone in camp that you're more excited about than Tyler Bray?? The consensus in the draft was this kid is the protypical NFL QB when it came to physical ability, but his immaturity kept him from being drafted. If that's being addressed... could we be looking at the future of this franchise?? Chase Daniel is a good backup for Alex Smith, but he's not the heir apparent. Tyler Bray has the tools to be something special in this league.

    If the Chiefs were getting their a$$es handed to them while the 1s were on the field, I'd actually give a sh!t. But that's not happening.

    You have to desperately be looking for something to complain about when you're complaining that your 2-14 team is ONLY beating the defending NFC champ and a top 3 defense by a touchdown at the half.



    Some of y'all are ridiculous and need to gain some perspective.

    But our first string offense looked bad against the niner backups the entire half. Their defensive starters were out after our first possession on offense. We scored 6 points, and 3 of those points were on a 15 yard "drive." Why does everyone ignore this? Our first string offense scored 6 points and their backup offense against our starting defense which featured their third string quarterback scored 3 points.

    It's rather sad.

    Why do you ignore IT'S PRESEASON

    Last night Brady and the Pats got hammered by the lions so Brady sucks? The Pats should just pack it in and go home? Or is it only the Chiefs that the preseason counts?

    I didn't say it was I said the niners d was loaded. They are a lot deeper then other teams defense. The Lions were ranked 27th in the nfl last year the pats got killed by them so All I ask is you to hold every one else to the same standard you hold the Chiefs players to so Brady and the pats suck right?
