    Default Game 2 thoughts. [The real thread observations ;)]


    0 Not allowed!
    Here's some observations in no particular order:

    1- It is quite refreshing after all these years to have a QB who goes through his reads and knows when to move up the pocket or out of it. Smith is every bit the game manager as advertised, but for the foreseeable future he will do quite nicely. There will come a point in the next few years that I would like to see us have a game creator. One who will actually stand in the pocket and deliver missiles downfield over the Ds' heads into the waiting hands of our receivers every once in a while.

    2- Our O-line is grossly underachieving. I'm not an O-line guru to pick up all the nuances, but I look up and down our line and wonder why they are not better. So is it talent or coaching and the scheme?

    3- Continuing on the theme of #2, Fisher is definitely a work in progress. A somewhat slow progress, that is. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of his, but he is lost out there some times. The time that their DE almost picked him up and drove him into Smith's face was downright embarrassing.

    4- I hate, hate, hate the bend but don't break style of D that Romeo had here. I'm quite thankful we have this aggressive style this year. The last time we did have an aggressive D style, Marty was our HC. But don't get too excited. Marty's D was not only swarming, but also trained for TAKEAWAYS. Yes we did get several turnovers, but the were not of the TAKEAWAY variety. I want to see our guys reach into the ball carrier's belly and attempt to yank the ball out every time.

    5- We are a good team, but nowhere near a great team. Let's be realistic. I hate to say it but we will have a hard time standing up to Denver Peytons. I mean we would have lost today's game if it was played in Dallas. The good news though is that barring injury this team will only gel and get better as the season progresses. Toppling Denver from the perch will have to be someone else's job. Hopefully they'll choke again in the playoffs and the Manning era will come to a quick end.

    6- What's up with Dez Bryant. I wanted him out of college for the Chiefs. Then he proved to be a head case and I was happy we didn't have him. Then he seems to have fixed his head and become a team leader. Urrrrgh! My head is spinning.

    7- Continuing about Dez, I was cursing Andy a bit for not asking for a replay of that long catch before Dallas's 1st TD. I was pretty sure he came down with both hands above the ball. After having seen the highlights a few times I'm not so sure now. Maybe Andy was right. Could it be I was wr... wr... wrong?! Anyway, old Dez returned the favor late in the game by not hauling in that long sideline pass that landed right into his grasp.

    8- Jamall Charles is much tougher than his stature suggests. Did you see how he bulldozed that one defender out of the way in the 3rd quarter (4th?) like Sherman tank in a demolition derby? The sound of the pads impact was like thunder.

    9- I'm gonna go out on the limb here and claim that barring injuries, Dontari Poe is the next Warren Sapp. I know Iknow, it's a shaky limb, but I don't think it will snap.

    And last but not least.....

    10- I don't care if Dustin Colquitt is a Democrat or a Republican. If he runs for President, I am voting for him...

    OK that was meant to say "observations thread" in the title. But I'm a little victory drunk. ;) Someone tell me how to edit a thread title. :)

    1. I think Bray may be that guy for the future.

    3. Yes, Fisher is going to suffer from inexperience in his first year. He does get jacked every now and then as well.

    9. Nope that limb isn't going to snap. The Chiefs finally have a D-Lineman that they drafted that is playing up to his draft status. Never could say that about Ryan Sims or Glenn Dorsey or TJ.

    This is a team that is rebuilding. Not a complete blowup and start again, but 2-14 is 2-14. You don't get to 2-14 unless there is a whole lot wrong.

    And honestly was anybody thinking that a rebuilding team would go 13-3 or 14-2? I don't think so.

    But a lot has changed. We have a QB that knows his ash from a hole in the wall and we have a team that just flat out doesn't know the meaning of "give up".

    We are not going to win the Superbowl this year. But sometime in the next few years we are going to make a serious run at it.

    THE CHIEFS ARE BACK!!!!!!

    Oops, I knew I missed one:

    - Brandon Flowers has elite talent trapped in a small body. This makes him a good to very good player, but he'll never be elite. :( Too bad. He has the heart.

    I seen Poe, on at least 2 plays, drop back and covering the TE! And doing a pretty good job of it! How many NT's have that ability? Strength AND speed in one nice package.
    SHUT IT

    When I look at the D-Lineman drafted in the top 15 from 2009 on & look at the guys that have been taken in the draft -- Tyson Jackson, BJ Raji, Ndamukong Suh, Gerald McCoy, Marcel Dareus, Nick Fairley, Fletcher Cox ( I may have missed somebody else ), it's looking like Poe may turn out to be the best of the bunch, as Poe is playing at an All-Pro level thus far this season.

    I just watched the Chiefs-Cowboys game and there was something that I noticed that really needs to change. Lack of playing time given to Junior Hemingway at the slot WR position. Sorry, but continually insisting on playing McCluster there full time ahead of Hemingway is not going to help this Offense. All Hemingway does is get open and catch the ball & he's clearly the superior talent when it comes to playing the slot WR position and provides Alex Smith a better target than McCluster. Sorry, but McCluster's size is a liability and it too often results in incomplete passes & him being physically manhandled by DB's and LB's.
