  1. This has been true, but it need not stay true. Among other things, they found a pass rush on Sunday. Danna is getting good at it and Clark is rounding into playing shape. I am not worried so much this week, given the nature of the opponent, but the Raiders are coming soon. That's a team that can score with us. J
  2. Film review of the defense. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2021/10/20/22735939/kansas-city-chiefs-film-review-defense-gets-timely-stops-and-creates-turnovers-vs-washington The Chiefs have been compared to the Golden State Warriors. Offensively, the comp is obvious. Defensively, the Warriors are deceptively good. while they give up points, they are adept at short stretches where harass the other team into turnovers and bad shots. Last season the Chiefs were like that, leading the league in pick-6 interceptions and among the leaders in turnover margin. We saw glimpses of that as the defense
  3. We were better than average last season, close to top 10. Talentwise, I think we are there again, but very little depth. More than anything we just need to get players back to where they were before. The only players to conspicuously improve are Danna and Sneed. Then there is Bolton, who leads all rookies in tackles. https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2021/10/20/kansas-city-chiefs-nick-bolton-nfl-rookie-tackle-leader-through-week-6/
  4. Forget about the less. We can give that much up and still win. That said, the best way to deal with Henry is to make them play catch up.
  5. They signed Shalique Calhoun to PS. Darryl Williams was released. Calhoun is a veteran LB but I'm sorry to see Williams go. Still, Creed Humphrey now owns his position so we move on. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2021/10/19/22735486/kansas-city-chiefs-sign-veteran-linebacker-shilique-calhoun-to-practice-squad-drop-darryl-williams In a related story, the team has been trying out DL https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2021/10/19/kansas-city-chiefs-workout-defensive-linemen-justus-reed-kobe-jones-shilique-calhoun-signed/ Update: Mercilus officially cut. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2021/
  6. Given our depth issues at DE, this is interesting. Whitney Mercilus could be a nice piece, even at age 31. https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2021/10/19/kansas-city-chiefs-interested-texans-whitney-mercilus/ HC Reid likes to talk about complimentary football--offense helping defense and vice versa, building a machine. In the second half, we saw that for the first time this season.
  7. This one is interesting. It's about swagger. As Mahomes would say, "Be great. Be us." We had a glimpse on Sunday. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2021/10/19/22732903/chiefs-might-have-brought-nba-energy-back-to-2021-season This is the play, and it didn't count.
  8. Interesting. He's a lot more athletic than Hali, but also undersized in comparison. Hali was first round, while Danna was third day. Hali excelled at the little things and, as you say, never giving up on a play. Danna has mad hand-fighting skills, but he lacks a goto move. Neither one was particularly twitchy. It's not close, but I can seem some similarities. J
  9. Snap counts show several things. Defense: Thornhill and Fenton 100%, Hughes 80%, Sorensen 32%. No comment needed. Clark 81%, Danna 59%, Okafor 49%. Ideally, you want Clark about 70% and Okafor around 10%. Niemann 73%, Bolton 66%, Gay 31%, Hitchens 19%. Bolton is here to stay. Who plays with him? Offense: Niang 1%. Lucas was mostly out. Remmers did a solid job. Robinson 70%, Hardman 60%, Hill 57%, Pringle 39%, Gordon 13%. Hill was part time but, apart from the interception, he was effective. Hardman had his best game. Williams 72%, McKinnon 28%. Right at 3-1. Mixed resul
  10. I'm going to start with the DL, partly because it has been so erratic so far. Both starting DE have been hurt and the DT have disappointed. The big change has been Mike Danna turning into a solid DE, able to set the edge and still get pressure in pass rush. With Clark starting to play well, our D at least flashed something we want to see. https://www.yardbarker.com/general_sports/articles/the_chiefs_defensive_line_group_is_about_to_get_interesting/s1_16631_36174263 On to Tennessee.

  12. Well, it could have been worse. It looks like it was worse for the first half and into the second. However, two TD drives of over 90 yards is impressive. The one from the 4 yard line must have been demoralizing for the Washington defense. While the run game was somewhat effective, it was a Mahomes game with just under 400 yards a 2 TD. One of the Int's hit Hill in the hands. Clearly, the defense played better. Last year we were very good at generating turnovers. You gotta love a DT grabbing a pass. Usually, they get tipped balls, but Wharton pulled it down like a rebound in hoops.
  13. That's the point. Their WR depth is either out or questionable. In other news, Thornhill starts and Hill will play. https://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/articles/chiefs_to_start_safety_juan_thornhill_against_washington_football_team/s1_16631_36161957 https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/10/17/tyreek-hill-set-to-play-at-washington/
  14. The question is who is Heinike going to throw to? Seriously, who are these guys? Ricky Seals-Jones I have heard of, and not in a good way. The others, not really.
  15. If the Chiefs cannot win this game, then something is truly wrong. That said, it's no cupcake. WTF has a good offense and a well regarded DL, though the rest of the defense has not kept up. This article has some notes: https://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/articles/kansas_city_chiefs_at_washington_football_team_nfl_week_6_notes/s1_16919_36152156 Chris Jones will be out, so Demone Harris was elevated. Frank Clark appears to be approaching full strength, but we will see a lot of Mike Danna and a fair amount of Alex Okafor. It's far from an ideal situation. https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2021/10/1
