    Dear Andy

    I have 2 simple messages for you

    1. Great job getting back to this spot. I will admit there was a time midway through the season that it wasn't looking good. But you righted the ship and once again have home field for the AFC championship. Great job in that. Now bring Lamar Hunt's trophy home

    2. You are facing the Titans. To beat them you are going to have to go against your nature. RUN THE BALL. They beat you early in the year when you threw the ball 50 times. They just beat the Ravens who threw the ball 59 times. The air raid offense is not how you beat these guys. If you do the math the teams that have beaten the Titans this year averaged 31 passing attempts. You are going to have to commit more to a running game. You have to keep Derek Henry on the sideline. Don't let him wear the defense down.

    This is another chance to silence your critics (like me) please do this. Make me look more of an idiot. You did well the last time I wrote you do it again. Bring that trophy home

    sincerely,
    Matthewschiefs

    Think the key to the game for the Chiefs is getting enough of a lead by halftime to force the Titan's coaching staff to pass more in the second half. Offensively we have the firepower to pull that off. We just need to cut down on the drops. Our run game is no match for theirs and just isn't tailor-made for eating up the clock, but that doesn't mean it can't be used effectively.

    If the Titans are trying to stick with the play-action offense SOP my guess is that we'll be seeing a flea-flicker early in the game to try to get a quick lead established. If they get cute and Spags catches it, could turn into a disaster for them. Put them into a situation where Tannehill has to beat us in the air in the third & fourth quarters.

    I looked at the stats of the Titans-Ravens game, and the Ravens had 530 total yards and 29 first downs, but only came away with 12 points because of 3 turnovers and going 0-4 on 4th down attempts. That's 7 possessions of coming away empty. The Ravens shot themselves in the foot way too often.

    The Chiefs cannot allow this to happen. They have to cash in and come away with points when they get the ball into Titans territory. And as Eydugstr said, cut down on the drops & hang on to the football --- something the Ravens failed to do in too many critical situations.

A early lead will force the Titains to air the ball out more also screens forceing them to play catch up and out of their game of clock control with running the football. After two previous bruising games they will lose their edge by quarter three. I noticed against the Ravins they were out of gas by quarter three. The Chiefs defense must get them off the field on third down as much as possible. The Chiefs must put points on the board and force the Titans to play catch up and then we kill them with the clock effectively beat them at their own game. Chiefs do not make the bad decisions like we did early on with the Texans. Take care of the ball and the Titains. ( THINK THINK THINK )
    Welcome!

    Getting off to a lead would be huge for the Chiefs this week. It would also go a long way to taking Henry out of the game. The biggest no brainer key to this game is make Ryan Tannehill show that he can beat you and not let Derek Henry do it . If the Chiefs do that then they will be going to Miami.

    This to me is the biggest key to the game.

    In the week 10 matchup we had a 2-1 pass to run. I think it has to be more balanced this time.

    Though also in that week 10 matchup the Chiefs had Patrick Mahomes just coming back from injury and not rolling like he has been. We are going to be more of a passing team and I'm good with that. Just don't get it that far out of balance. If we do that the Chiefs should be able to win this game.

    1 GAME AWAY from the super bowl and IMO clearly the better team. So pumped for Sunday

    And let us not forget, the Chiefs were also playing with a depleted O-Line in that first match-up with the Titans. Both Fisher and LDT were not in the line-up in that first meeting. This time around, the Chiefs O-Line is healthy and fully intact, and hopefully that will prove to be a HUGE difference maker this time around.

    This where Spags gets a chance to show his wares as a DC. The Chiefs must slow down the run on Defense and cash in on every opportunity on Offense.
    This is the key to the game. The Titans will have one strategy - and that will be to keep Mahomes on the sideline. They can do that with Henry. If we can't stop the run, our defense will wear down and it will be a long game. We have to win the battle of the trenches with these guys.

    If Chris Jones can play, then the Chiefs will have a solid rotation at Defensive Tackle and be able to keep fresh men in the game at all times & the Chiefs LB's have to fill the gaps correctly & take away the cutback lanes.

    The Donkeys actually held Henry to 28 yards on 15 carries back in October (of course, the Chiefs beat the Donks twice by simply throwing the ball over the Donkeys defense, while the Chiefs Defense just flat out smothered the Donkeys Offense in both games).

    The Chiefs Defensive coaches have to be able to put together some type a scheme to slow Henry down & be ready to make adjustments.

    Offensively, they cannot squander opportunities like the Ravens did & Andy Reid has to keep the pedal to the metal like he did against Houston until the game is sealed.

    And another thing that may help is Chiefs fans CROWD NOISE. Arrowhead needs to get loud when the Defense is on the field and stay that way throughout the game.

    Dear Andy Reid,

    Play to win this Sunday for a full 4 QTR's and have this team ready right out of the gate-- unlike last year. This is your chance to show the world what a difference a year can make.

    You've been in enough Conference Championship games to know that there aren't any participation trophies. There is only one trophy that is given & that is the Lamar Hunt trophy that is given to the winner of this game. That trophy that bears Lamar Hunt's name is WAY overdue to be captured by the very team that Lamar Hunt founded -- and that is your team that you now coach, the Kansas City Chiefs. That trophy should have been captured in 1997, but the HC at that time, elected to give it away and throw that opportunity down the drain. It could have been captured last year, but the opportunity was blown, and the primary culprits are no longer around.

    You took a big step in the right direction last week by not letting up on the gas & going for the throat stomp when you had the chance & many Chiefs fans -- myself included -- are lauding it as being the most beautiful thing that they've ever witnessed in a Chiefs football game. Now, you've got the chance to make what happened last Sunday really count for something this Sunday. GET IT DONE !!

    Dear Coach Reid,

    Yes, this actually happened.



    Please show up to Arrowhead with a game plan that does this to the Tennessee Titans for four quarters of football. Sick of seeing us lose to the Titans.
