    Default Donks game #1 discussion thread....


    2 Not allowed!
    We've been talking about this game in just about every thread for weeks now so I figure it's time this game had it's own thread.

    For the last several weeks I have been worried sick about almost every game, but for some reason I'm feeling fairly good about this one. Maybe it's because it's still 2 weeks 'till the game. Maybe it's because there is no way this game has the potential to be a trap. Maybe it's because there is not going to be some unknown QB with no film available. Maybe It's because our Defense seems to have been almost "custom built" to face Denver. Maybe it's because of Reid's excellent record coming off a bye week (he's 13-1 coming off the bye). Maybe it's because most of our team has played these Broncos before. Maybe I am just crazy.

    The Good.........

    Reid's teams are consistently well-prepared coming off a bye week.

    Sutton will have plenty of time to prepare a game plan for the Donks.

    While our Defense has been starting slow the last few weeks, so has the Donks Offense. 6 of their 8 wins have come when the Donks have blown out their opponent in the second half. And the second half has been when our Defense decides it's "Git-R-Done time". Our Defense should be going 110% right about when the Donks start clicking. I feel pretty good about that match-up.

    The Donks defense doesn't suck, but they are no world beaters. If our Defense is playing well, and our Offense is playing well, we can score just as many points as the Donks do.

    To win this game we are going to need our best effort yet from our Defense, Special Teams and Offense, but I think we are going to see that.

    Our Defense should be able to keep this game close and as we all know by now if a game is close going into the 4th quarter we have a habit of winning.

    The Bad......

    The game is in Denver and their crowd should be amped up. These teams hate each other and their fans are HUGELY PISHED OFF that they are 8-1 while we are 9-0. Their fans are going to be LOUD.

    The Donks offense is good and can score a lot of points in the blink of an eye. I have not yet seen anything from our offense that suggests they would know how to come back if we got down by more than 2 touchdowns.

    Our offense has not been making a lot of progress the last few weeks, although I have seen more willingness for them to throw downfield...and I think we will NEED at least a couple of long gainers to win this game.

    Reid went all pass-happy on us yesterday against the Bills in the first half. I think the pass to run ratio for the first half was 27-7. We won't beat the Donks that way. I love Andy Reid, but I worry that he will look at the Donks vs Cowboys and Donks vs Colts games and think we can beat them in a gun-slingers duel. I think a balanced run and pass game is the only way we can beat the Donks and I'm worried Reid will go cuckoo on us. If we are going to win this game we MUST get a running game of some sort going early in the game so that Alex Smith will have some time when he throws.

    No predictions from me, but I think this is a game we can win and if we do then we will truly be in control of our own destiny.

    GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!

    The point you made that stands out to me is regarding Offensive balance. Specifically the need to run the ball more effectively. Sustained time-consuming drives to points & keeping Manning off the field. Defensively, put Manning under fierce pressure and hit him early and often. And also pick some of his passes off.

    If those things don't happen, then the Chiefs won't win.

    our D will get its biggest test of the season here. nothing less than a steller performance. getting to Manning is always the key. the colt proved that. he does not like being hit and they ruffed him up. also I hear he does not perform well in cold weather. neither did Elway. so im hoping the weather helps out here. downfield coverage key. make him hold the ball longer we may get in our licks. his hurry hurry style of the hurry up is his best weapon. he didn't invent it but sure did perfect it. he keeps D's out there and gas's them or force's TO's..how many pts can we afford to give up??? if we keep them 27 or below we got a chance.
    we're not built for for big come back games on O. so unless Reid comes up with a magic elixir we're in trouble. and the thing is their D is having some real problems we could exploit. the drop and smile pass has gotta stop !!!

    even if we win they say its because Fox isn't there. they'll find excuse's for losing. always do

    A little early for this discussion. We have yet to see the Charger play the Donkies. I mean the way the season has been going. Peyton will be hurt or something and we will have to prepare for a back up QB in two weeks.

    Good points dempsey....

    Got to rattle Manning early and often. That means our Defense has to be hitting on all cylinders from the git-go. The Donks offense is good enough that they could put the game out of reach in the first half if our Defense isn't playing it's best. So our defense will need to give us 4 quarters of their very best. If they do that then I like our chances.

    And we will have to establish the run fairly early. If we can run the ball Smith will have the time to throw. And if he has a little time he can be very effective. If Smith has little or no time to throw this could be a very long game. I don't see us holding Denver to our league-leading average of 12.34 points per game. I think we will have done well if we hold them to 24 points....maybe 27......and to beat that, our Offense will probably have to score AT LEAST 21 points and maybe 28. And we won't do that if we don't get a run game established by at least midway through the second quarter. Calm down Andy!!! Don't try to beat Manning at his own game!

    I also find it interesting that the Donks have mostly been a second half team (as we have). If they weren't I'd be very worried about this game. They win their games in the second half and that is when our defense plays their best. If we keep the game within 10 and low scoring in the first half and are giving Manning a hard time all along then I like our chances.

    The "experts" say this is going to be about our toughest game in the regular season.....Donks in Donkeyland....and that is probably true. In fact I doubt any of the "experts" think we have a chance in this one. But I like the way these 2 teams match up. And with Reid's record after bye weeks and our D usually playing their very best in the second half I think this is a game we can WIN! It will take our best team effort yet, but unlike the talking heads, I don't see this game a "a bridge too far". I see this as a tough game that we have a decent chance of winning. If we keep it close to the start of the 4th quarter and have given Manning a hard time then we'll have a good chance to win this one.

    I don't want to sound like a negative Nanny or anything, but I have a feeling we get a whooping this game. I hope I am wrong but my gut just tells me that it will be a humbling.

    I know, but we've been having this discussion for at least 3 weeks now. Might as well put it all in one place. It's just about all any Chiefs fan is really thinking about now. For the Chiefs this is the Super Bowl of the regular season. If we beat them in Donkeyland then we'll have a MINIMUM of a 2 game lead in the AFC West with just 6 games left to play. If we beat them on their home turf I see a 2 game lead as very tough for them to overcome. From here on we are facing the toughest part of our season. If we start it by beating the Donks in Donkeyland then I have to ask myself...."Just how hard the rest of our schedule really is?". If we can beat them in Denver and go to 10-0 then just what games in the regular season do we look at and say....."Well, that's probably a loss"? I don't see any although it would probably happen....somewhere, somehow.

    At the start of this season anybody that said we would be 9-0 would have been labeled a raving lunatic. If we go 10-0 and beat the Donks in Donkeyland then who can really say 16-0 is impossible?????????

    And yes....you can call me "Homer"!

    As I've stated throughout the year the offense of the Chiefs is going to be the key to the Chiefs getting the win in either game against Denver.

    Denver is a team built around offense there defense is there weak link. The Chiefs are built on defense the offense is the weaker of there units. It's a match up of both teams strongest units going against each other and both teams weaker units going against each other. Very Interesting.

    The Chiefs have great potential to beat Denver. They're a team that is built to give Denver fits. There offense is not a big play offense and when going against Denver that's a great thing. Go back to the first half against Cleveland. The offense was on the field for over 20 minutes in the first half. If the Chiefs are able to do that and do it for a complete game they will win the game. Manning can't hurt you if he is standing on the Sideline while the Chiefs offense is on the field. The offense is going to have to do what they do. Keep the ball and put together long time comsuming drives. They will have 2 weeks to get ready. Just have to get it done. A win in Denver would be HUGE for this team.

    No doubt it is possible. It will certainly take our best performance of the year to avoid that. But I think this is a good enough team that they can beat the Donks. Whether they will or not remains to be seen. But I'll tell you true...I don't think there is a team in the NFL that is so much better than us that we can't beat them....even on their home turf.
