Well Commanders, its been a rough couple of weeks for any Kansas City Chiefs fan. After looking at a potential record of 6-3, with a solid hold on the division lead, the Chiefs laid consecutive ‘eggs’ against two lackluster opponents, and suddenly find themselves 4-5, 3rd place in the division, and looking straight into the hardest 5 game stretch any team faces this season. eh…
Here we go, I guess
Yes, this day has come. Not only is it Monday Night Football week, but it also happens to be in Foxboro against the best team of the last decade. As if that wasn’t enough, Tyler Palko will be leading the offense. Who would have thought that by the time this part of the schedule rolled around that the Chiefs backfield would be Jackie Battle and Tyler Palko…scary. Best case scenario, Palko pulls out a Matt Flynn-esque performance (also happened to be against NE) and the season is saved. (I can hardly take myself seriously)
I wont lie, Jamaal Charles is half-man, half-god, because what he was able to do behind this line last season is nothing short of a miracle. The only loss was Brian Waters, and lets not pretend that he was so fantastic last season. This is the most pathetic line in the NFL right now. Originally I was hoping Ricky Stanzi would get an opportunity, but after thinking about it, Palko is somewhat mobile and can save his own life by running for it. However, the thought of Barry Richardson having the blind side is bone chilling.
The only “group” on this team more pathetic than the O-Line is the D-Line. Kelly Gregg was good because of his surroundings in Baltimore, Glenn Dorsey had the perennial “blind squirrel finding an acorn” year last season, and Tyson Jackson isn’t even worth wasting breath over. If improvement isn’t shown, it’s time to admit failure and cut ties with ALL of these guys and re-address it in the draft. That could be difficult when we are forced to take Landry Jones in the 1st…
What to Watch for: Around the NFL
Who would have thought Cincinnati would be on this list this late in the season? Andy Dalton has been ROY material, and the Bengals keep finding ways to stay in contention. The Ravens have been nothing but disappointing this year, and after a close game with Pittsburg last week, I expect the Bengals to pull this one out and stay in the playoff hunt. Prediction: Cin 27 Bal 21
