An ugly game in Motown ends with a Chiefs victory, here is this weeks winners and losers.

Talk about a nail-biter. The team comes away with their third road victory of the year, but it was not pretty. I know I mentioned last week I would just put the entire 53 on here; well, not after that showing! Let’s take a look at this week’s winners and losers from the hard fought Chiefs versus Lions game.

Winners

Patrick Mahomes: He certainly was not as sharp this week as he has been in the past, but when your MVP quarterback leads a 2:00 minute drive which results in a game winning touchdown, he is a winner. #15 finished the game with zero touchdowns, zero interceptions on 24/42 passing with 315 yards. Not the stats everyone was expecting from the “dome” conditions, but the Win is the most important factor here.

Running Backs LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams: Combined for 3 touchdowns on the day, with Darrel Williams scoring the game winner. Nice to see the running backs stepping up and getting the job done this week.

Bashaud Breeland: Don’t tell anyone… actually, go ahead and tell everyone that Breeland is quickly becoming my favorite player on the defense. His fumble pickup returned for a touchdown should be shown to every high school, college, and pro player around on how to play until you hear a whistle.

Chris Jones: #95 was nasty this game, and needs to be paid.

Detroit Lions, Kerryon Johnson, Matt Patricia: The NFC north needs to be on notice. The Lions may have played the Cardinals to a tie, but they are certainly trending upwards in the CHIEFSandSABRES book. Patricia seems to be putting together a nice squad that is making adjustments, playing with some swagger, and features a running back in Kerryon Johnson that is going to win them some games. Yeah, they did not win this game, but we Chiefs fans have to give credit where credit is due. The Lions played a heck of a game Sunday.

Third win on the road so far this year: I will close out the winners with this. Several other players were on the bubble of making the bold print, but the team as a whole gets a nod of the ol’ Stetson from me. Three road games in the first 4 weeks for the team and we have victories in all of them. It’ll be nice to start stringing together some victories in front of the Sea of Red, starting next Sunday night.

Losers

Charvarius Ward: Was clearly getting picked on all game. He is the weakest link in the secondary, and it showed Sunday. It is not as bad as it was last year back there, so hopefully the good starts to outshine the bad with Ward as the season moves on.

Kendall Fuller: Looked out of place all game. Certainly not a strong game for him, hopefully the veteran can hit his stride and turn this around because he did not look good against the Lions.

Rush Defense: Kerryon Johnson had a field day. 26 rushes for 125 yards. The defense as a whole kept us in, and in my opinion won this game for us, but we need to get a little stouter and stop these running backs.

Offensive rhythm: Everything just seemed a little off. Receivers not finishing routes, the MVP adding a little too much juice or not enough, and practically zero “explosive” plays like we are all accustomed to. Yes some of the individual players earned the bold print above, as a whole the entire offense looked a tick off.

Fumbles: The ball is probably still rolling around on the turf in Detroit. From the opening kickoff in the third quarter, the Chiefs and Lions could not keep the ball in their hands.

Andy’s clock management to end the first half: Call the time out. Anyone. This is the second week in a row where I can remember the MVP going to the sideline being visually upset with the tempo and wanting more.

Special Teams: Yikes. Butker missed a FG, and the entire unit has not looked good at all so far on this young season. Colquitt had a weak punt, and the return game is not looking very electric. Jumping offsides to make a 58 yard field goal a 53 yarder, just not good. Dave Toub needs to hit the drawing board and get something going here.

All right Arrowhead Guys, who do you have for this weeks winners and losers?

Loser – our first quarter/half zone defense… Detroit was totally picking it apart during the first few drives.

Winner – our adjustment of adding a 5th guy rushing the qb. We were also deceptive with the second half blitzing.

Wow… Are we not blessed to be Chiefs fans?????

Dear Andy:
Clock Management for Dummies…
It’s easy as PIE… you need 2 seconds per YardToGo… if you’re under that… you stop the clock by whatever means available (starting with Timeouts, preferrably; then spikes).

~~Time Tested and Proven~~

Tyrone

I hate the “save the last TO to stop the clock for a FG strategy” he seems to use. Call the TO as soon as the play is done, then trust that the MVP can manage it from there.

If he used the TO right away, there still would have been enough time to run a play in bounds, and spike the ball if needed for a TO, as well as having the time for a few shots at the endzone.

Winner – Byron Pringle. He showed that he should get the ball more.

Winner – Our chances of winning the division, keeping a favorable distance ahead of the next two behind us (and a very difficult distance for the Broncos to come out ahead of us).

Winner – Detroit area audiologists, treating several new patients from people who went to the game and left with tinnitus.

Winner – KC fans who get to see our team at home the next few weeks.

Loser – People who bet on the over.

Loser – Mahomes’ record of consecutive games with a thrown TD.

Loser – Officiating. When Mahomes was running and looking at the red, the commentators thought it might be because of holding on the part of our o-line. But maybe it was that Mahomes saw penalties the Lions d-line were doing, and was just surprised that the refs were letting those slide. The officiating seemed to miss a lot yesterday. (But I’m not complaining about Breeland’s 100 fumble recovery for a TD and the ruling the refs gave there.)

Loser – Vontaze Burfict. Guy’s been suspended for the whole season now. 😀

Loser: Ball Security

Chiefs had some favorable outcomes, but the Lions continuously punching the ball out needs to be addressed this week. Shady waving the ball around while running during the hook and ladder from Kelce nearly gave me a heart attack (but I LOVED the play and improvisation). Credit to the Detroit players – they were going for the ball on every play and it showed. Need to shore that up this week.

Hardman is a loser, he reminds me of a Ted Ginn Jr, he just runs go routes. Ginn has had a long career,and made a lot of money, I guess Hardman would happy to have Ginn’s career.

Seems a little premature. But we’ll see.

Berserker

I bet Ginn would make a pretty decent weapon for our particular QB.

Hardman is a rookie who just played his 4th game. He’s ahead of schedule but still has a lot to learn.

Winner: the Defense playing 3 of the 1st 4 on the road.

Hear me out, the D had the disadvantage/advantage of starting the new everything about the D with 3 games with no crowd noise.

Communication in ’18 was Charles Barkley terrible on D. Especially the back 7. All new schemes, verbiage, communication and players brought in to run the 4-3. Fans are saying give the D more time to gel. Let them build chemistry. Let them play instead of think.

Playing 3 games on the road is a disadvantage, it favors the home team and has the D with their backs to the wall.

Playing 3 games on the road has an advantage. No crowd noise. Players are learning everything new and being able to hear the calls from all 11 players on the field.

Coming home for week 5 and the crowd noise is going to be an advantage. The communication is built. Chemistry is built. The D is being built.

Need more blitzes Bob.

I hope the Chiefs are working on extensions for Chris Jones and Bashaud Breeland. Through four games they look like our best players on defense.

I wouldn’t declare Mahomes a winner. It might be unfair based on his previous performances, but yesterday, Mahomes was off. He wasn’t himself. He seemed to be rattled and things just weren’t clicking for him. His body language was telling.

I would add Travis Kelce to the list. He seems to always make a play when one is needed. He was also shown on the sideline firing up the team.

Another winner: THE REFS…for not blowing the whistle. This is something that should be shown to every ref crew and preached. Don’t let a whistle make the call. Let replay decide what’s right/wrong.

CHIEFSandSABRES
CHIEFSandSABRES

Mahomes was most certainly a winner Sunday. 4th and whatever he scrambles for a first, in the 2:00 min drill to help us seal the game. Remember when we used to have QBs who would not win us the game, home or away, with a 2:00 min drill? Not anymore.

Tarkus

No passes behind the line of scrimmage, no taking a sack, etc. Yeah, that is what a winning QB looks like.

DenverDonkeyHater
DenverDonkeyHater

My buddy is a bears fan. Constantly complains “why would you throw a pass short of the sticks on 3rd down.” All i can do is laugh and remember when alex was our qb.

Tarkus

Yeah, I watch other teams do that, even on 4th down, and it gives me PTSD. That used to be so infuriating.

If he played decently for the other 58 minutes of the game we wouldn’t have been in desperation mode in the 4th in the first place

Tyrone

He did play “decent”. No where near his standard, but still better than an average QB. Missed quite a few throws, but zero turnovers, and put up 20 offensive points up until then. I’d say that’s still decent.

tsv0728
tsv0728

If that is the policy, then you can’t have the same threshold for overturning a call, IMO. They got this one right, but if your goal is to let the replay determine reality, you can’t go into it assuming the turnover or whatever was the “right” call, like you do with normal reviews. There needs to be another threshold which is something like ‘we don’t have a bias either way, we’ll check replay and make the call’.

TNCHIEFS
TNCHIEFS

That’s kind of what they do. In the Saints game Cam Jordon picked up a fumble and was on his way to a TD. The ref thought it wasn’t a fumble (or Jordan was down by contact, not sure which) and blew the whistle. A reviewed showed that it was a fumble and the Saints retained possession at the spot of the recovery but no TD. That’s why they didn’t blow the whistle yesterday.

Tyrone

Correct. Then you risk the ref seeing a player being downed live, but not blowing it dead just for the sake of it, and then it not being visible on replay. The official clearly saw it live, but didn’t blow it dead just because “that’s the procedure” and now you’re stuck with not being able to get the call right.

Honestly, I’m not all that impressed with the Lions. We had to play almost the worst I’ve seen us play and the Lions had to ball out above what they really are to make it as close as it was. If Mahomes was synced up like he usually is and if our guys learned how to secure the football, this game wouldn’t have been that close. I think we hurt ourselves more than the Lions ever did.

Jdklks
Jdklks

Agree, but of course since they played us tough everyone wants to believe they are for real. They had two very flukey (and barely) wins, and tied the fucking Cardinals. I guess they get some credit for making us play as poorly as we did, but make no mistake: that performance was abysmal. And we still won.

tsv0728
tsv0728

I dunno. Something happened to make the Chiefs play that poorly on offense. The Jags game last year is the only other time I remember the Chiefs looking so out of sync. I think ‘ol Patricia had channeled some Belicheat. Hopefully that helps Andy/Pat prepare for Tom.

Jdklks
Jdklks

Well as I said, I give them some credit, just not all. There are days when teams and individual players are just off, and that was definitely one of them.

BleedingRedAndGold

I’m chalking at least some of the issues on offense up to fatigue, as I said elsewhere. Out of 4 games so far, three have been on the road and KC’s played in 3 different time zones. Three of those teams have good Ds that played physical games against us. That’s a lot of travel days all bunched up, might not seem like much of a difference, but little things can add up.

I think the different surface played a part in Mahomes’ timing issues, as well. Fortunately, our guys will enjoy a lot of home cooking in the second quarter. Hopefully that will help them rest and recover better.

CHIEFSandSABRES
CHIEFSandSABRES

NFC North, outside of Green Bay looks like it might be up for the taking. If the Lions play everyone else the way the played us they might clean up that division.

You aren’t going to score more than 17-20 on CHI most Sundays. That means they’ll always be in it, and I expect they’ll win their fair share. Especially if McTruber is out for a few weeks. It’s going to be a tight division for sure.

Am I the only one getting very worried that Frank Clark’s contract may have been a huge mistake?

KCRowdy
KCRowdy

Nope..

CHIEFSandSABRES
CHIEFSandSABRES

Ehh I go back and forth in my mind about this. Frank Clark is constantly being double teamed. Once Spags unleashes Chris Jones, Nnadi continues to garner more that one look, it is going to be harder and harder to dedicate 2 blockers to each defender. He will start breaking through soon.

starry1

That’s not completely accurate. I rewatched on gamepass and he was only double-teamed maybe 50% of the time and probably less. Maybe one of our film analysts can chart it for a definitive answer.

zulu trader
zulu trader

double teamed %50 of the time is a LOT !

Jdklks
Jdklks

I would imagine it would be near league-leading.

zulu trader
zulu trader

yeah when the other team runs away from him they don’t need to double

Berserker

That was supposed to have been the case in Seattle, where the Dline around him had no other talent.
Here in KC, where we have Jones and other moderately talented Dlinemen, Clark was supposed to far exceed what he did in Seattle where he was “The Guy” and getting all the attention from opposing offenses.

^ That was the previous narrative, before the current narrative about him getting doubled and ran away from all the time.

tsv0728
tsv0728

Donald is double teamed 70% of the time. I don’t think Clark is anywhere near 50%, even if you call chips double teams. He has been a total disappointment so far. I’m hoping he is dealing with a muscle injury that is slowly healing.

starry1

CJ eats up just as many if not more and still gets to the qb.

starry1

What’s he doing with the other 50% of his snaps? I’ve seen him get pressure, which is good, but I don’t think that justifies his price tag and the draft capital.

CHIEFSandSABRES
CHIEFSandSABRES

Going off memory he has 1 INT and 1 sack so far this year. I’ll agree with you up to now that is not living up to where we want it to be. The only thing I can say is give him more time. He is only in the 4th game of playing on a new team and new defense.

BleedingRedAndGold

I agree. While DLine play is more individual playing when compared to the OLine, it still requires teamwork. To my eyes the D is still shaking down, and Spags himself has said that he doesn’t expect them to reach their potential before Week 8. Panicking right now and getting all upset because this player or that looks bad in 4 games isn’t going to pay off in any positive way.

Are there concerns? Yep, but it’s far too soon to tell much about the D, let alone individual players. Last I heard the DB corps has been pretty good so far, analytics-wise. Not bad for a bunch of guys who “can’t play”.

CJ_Spiller
CJ_Spiller

Double team rate through 3 games:

Myles Garrett – 37%
Danielle Hunter – 34%
Von Miller – 22%
Dee Ford – 21%
Frank Clark – 20% and he is only getting pressure on .04% of pass rushing

Until it actual becomes an issue, and we are actively looking to find money to pay someone else, I tend to care less how much we pay someone.

starry1

I’m leaning towards we should have paid Chris instead.

Leaf
Leaf

Not the same position so not really relevant.

Berserker

Same salary cap, same team, same defense, same Dline.

Leaf
Leaf

Same cap, that still has money to afford him yet he’s still not signed. Same team, same defense, same Dline, okay but not everyone on the same team/yadayadayada is paid equally so not sure what they have to do with how much someone is paid.

Berserker

You’re not sure what a pass rushing DE’s new paycheck has to do with a pass rushing DT’s potential new paycheck? For real?

Leaf
Leaf

For real? If they were equal then DTs would get the same money. They don’t. So not relevant to each other. Those that think so are just trying to create some ridiculous connection between Clark and Jones

Berserker

https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/contracts/defensive-line/

Players 1, 4, and 9 on that list of top DL contracts are DTs. So, yah, some individual DTs do get the same (or better) money compared to DEs. Mostly it seems DTs who specialize in sacking the QB, like Chris Jones.

Heh, you’re one to talk as far as deliberately creating ridiculous logic. Clark just got his second contract – Jones is about to get his second contract. They line up literally right next to each other in base defense. But somehow their respective paychecks are totally unrelated? That’s about as flimsy of a logical reach as I’ve seen.

Leaf
Leaf

I didn’t make the rules, the league did. If the PA wants to argue for change, by all means. But as of right now the league, not me personally, thinks they are different and should be paid differently. And you showing top contracts isn’t relevant to my point. I’m not arguing to not pay Jones. I’m not arguing that Clark should be paid more. My point is they aren’t comparable. If Jones wants to use Donald as his reference in negotiations, go for it. My point is Clark getting paid should have little baring on what happens so it’s silly to compare the two.

Berserker

Of course Clark’s new contract has bearing on Jones’ situation. Jones has arguably accomplished as much or more than Clark in this league, and Jones’ accomplishments happened on THIS team, but yet this team chose to pay Clark and not Jones thus far. Positional comparisons aside, you’re completely insane if you don’t believe that matters.

And then there’s this sequence that just happened here:

If they were equal then DTs would get the same money. They don’t. So not relevant to each other.

…….

…some individual DTs do get the same (or better) money compared to DEs. Mostly it seems DTs who specialize in sacking the QB, like Chris Jones.

………

….you showing top contracts isn’t relevant to my point.

^Which is about as close to a Skip Bayless style “la la la I can’t hear a fact that doesn’t agree with my taek” situation as anybody including Skip can get.

Leaf
Leaf

Okay whatever man. You aren’t grasping what I’m even arguing so this is pointless. Peace

Berserker

Agreed. Because I don’t believe that your arguments are grasp-able.

It’s pretty apparent that you took quick and general exception to criticisms against Clark’s trade/contract a while back, and you’ve spent several weeks trying to come up with arguments to validate your opinion. But honestly, the arguments you’ve come up with so far just don’t make logical sense (i.e. team mates on the same defense at comparable points in their careers performing at comparable levels don’t compare paychecks against each other…? – completely ridiculous).

And some of the arguments that you’ve come up with, like your assertion that DTs (similar to Chris Jones, since Chris Jones is who we’re talking about) don’t make a comparable salary to DEs because “rules,” and then your outright unexplained rejection of direct proof against that argument, well. That’s just plain stubborn floundering on your part.

Maybe there is a good argument for the idea that you’ve been trying to get across. But if there is, then you sure haven’t found it yet. And if you can’t find a good argument for something that you believe, well then maybe, just maybe, you believe wrong.

starry1

Very relevant. He’s our best pass rusher.

Leaf
Leaf

So? He’s a DT, not a DE. We needed a DE. That’s why we got Clark. If we kept JH, he would have the $100M contact. So Jones would still be in the same situation. And technically we can still afford to pay Jones, we just haven’t agreed to terms with his camp. so I still fail to see what relevance picking up Clark had to do with Jones.

starry1

WE had a Pro bowl DE and let him walk to sign Clark who hasn’t done much at all. The jones extension probably would have been done before TC if we hadn’t spent so much on Clark.

Leaf
Leaf

Lol who? Houston? He hasn’t been pro bowl caliber in years. Everyone was competition okay with cutting him because he wasn’t worth his price tag. Ford? Yeah what had he done lately? He was a one-hit-wonder, who is complaining of being injured yet again. I liked Ford. I defended him more then most (until last year). But he was in no way worth what he got because he’s too big of a gamble. I’m glad we let him walk.

starry1

Yeah that 89.1 grade for 2018 is just hilarious. I’m sure Justin is rolling at your joke.

Leaf
Leaf

I didn’t say he was bad, I said he wasn’t PB caliber any more. Plus he was on the wrong side of 30 with an injury history. I would have been fine keeping Houston. But we didn’t, and I’m fine with that too because I understand the logic of why they moved on. If you guys want to dwell on shoulda-woulda-couldas, by all means. Personally, i look at things as it is what it is. Bitching about his money really does nothing but keep us focused on a singular aspect that many find negative. Come off season I might sing a different tune, but he’s going nowhere now. His money isn’t changing. It is what it is.

BleedingRedAndGold

This, especially the last four sentences. It baffles me that some folks get so focused on finding things to hate about their team, and so upset that the team isn’t following the advice of whichever fans are unhappy. Vox populi, vox dei makes for bad policy generally, but especially for an NFL team, since fans only have a bare fraction of the information needed for actual decision-making.

Complaining about a contract during the season is pretty ridiculous, because except under extreme circumstances the contract will remain unchanged until after the season is over. I predict that I am going to get very, very tired of the “Frank Clark is sooooo overpaid, everyone should get really, really mad about it!” routine, and those espousing it won’t change a damn thing by chanting it.

CJScoobs

Spags should get a good chunk of credit. The Defensive personnel isn’t that great, and with limited CB options having Ward on the field is the only options most of the time for the defense. The defense can’t stop the run but in the biggest moments they came though and kept us alive most of the game. That never quit mentality will serve a greater purpose as the season goes on.

I about broke my fingers giving the timeout signal as soon as we completed that play down the field. It’s not rocket science. When time is running down and our offense has to move 20 yards down the field, call the fucking timeout. It does you no good to take it into the locker room with you.

Berserker

And then after they failed to take the timeout there, I thought they might as well try a quick look into the endzone since they had the timeout to burn anyway. But nope, FG try with more than 5 seconds left, which usually means you gotta risk a kickoff afterward. Man, that was so bad, basic mistake on top of basic mistake.
