Archie, how did a guy from Burkburnett/Wichita Falls become a Chiefs fan? Military?
That's the most important thing isn't it?
I went to Burkburnett schools from 1990 to 1994
Regardless of stats, I think the Chiefs may have a better offense than the Giants simply because Trent Green is a much better qurterback than Manning and Johnson is an easy match for Barber. I do not believe they will rack up big yardage numbers on us, but I have so little confidence in our offense right now, I am concerned about turnovers and short field opportunities for their offense.
Also, have we faced a Dante Hall like talent this year in the kicking game? One or two big returns could again result in short field opportunities to score for their offense. The bottom line here is I think the Chiefs are likely to score on us and our offense will need to score some points. At this point, they have not demonstrated any ability to do that for many weeks, and I am not sanguine about our chances this week.
I was in KC back in 97 after we had just gone 6-10 and the cabbie who was driving me around was laughing at how bad the Cowboys were and said we'd never be anything again. I said we've 3 superbowls in 4 years lately and 5 overall, how many have the Chiefs won overall and how many have you won lately. It didn't faze him one bit, he still thought the Chiefs were the best thing going. When I turned on my tv in the hotel room, it was all Chiefs all the time as if they were some kind of storied franschise or something. I was just amazed at their rabid enthusiasm at the time, so now that they're better, nothing surprises me.
God forbid a city would be enthusiastic about their football team.
So do I ..... so I guess that makes 3 of us.
Chef fans are very confident of their team. All week I had to listen to it. Heaven forbid should we lose tomorrow, next week won't be worth living. We simply MUST win.
I look for Drew and our offense to come out with a new energy and higher level of play. I have been tough on Drew this week but I think this game we will put our boots (spurs included) up the Chiefs Arses.
This is our most important game until next weekend and like it was just said earlier "we must win this game".
The Chiefs are definitely playing their best football of the year thus far.
Earlier in the season, they had injuries all over the map-especially with their OL.
Frankly, we need this win, and I think we'll duke it out. However-we're NOT playing Arizona here, that's for sure! :bang2:
Don't forget who put the Eagles asunder. The NFC champions from last year.
I recently typed up an explaination on my home board the other day.
Yep-regardless of how our season turns out(whether it's 7-9 or 11-5), we all but sent a message to the rest of the NFC when we POUNDED the Eagles in wk 5-that this powerhouse CAN be beaten and smacked around.
It was like the Rams a couple of years back-everyone was intimidated by them. But when the Pats came out in the Super Bowl and smacked them around physically, no longer was everyone intimidated by them.
