Morning, AG

Today in Chiefs history, not a thing seems to have happened. However, those guys across the parking lot were busy.

1973- Paul Splitorff becomes Kansas City Royals FIRST 20 game winner by beating the White Sox 6-2 at Comisky Park.

1978- The KC Royals clinch their third straight AL West Title as Larry Gura pitches a complete game 3 hitter, Amos Otis has 2 RBI’s to help beat the Seattle Mariners 4-1 at Royals Stadium, it is the shortest game in Royals Stadium history at 1 hour and 42 minutes.

1979- Frank White of the Royals hits for the cycle in California, to help KC win 4-0.

1985- Steve Balboni becomes the KC Royals single-season leader in home runs when he hit his 35th today. He finished the season with 36 homers, a club record.

2009- Billy Butler of the Royals became the eighth player in MLB history to hit 50 doubles in a season before turning 24 yrs old.

2014- The Kansas City Royals behind pitching from Jeremy Guthrie beat the White Sox in Chicago 3-1 to clinch a spot in the playoffs for the first time in 29 years.

Alright then, let’s get this over with

Frustrated and under siege after an ugly start in a tie against the Texans and a loss to the Jaguars, Indianapolis came roaring back with a 20-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs to get in the win column, a game sealed by Rodney McLeod’s interception off of a Stephon Gilmore deflection.

They started the game off on the wrong foot with some negative momentum in the special teams game. It seemed to bleed over into the rest of the game slowly throughout a full four quarters. In the end, the Indianapolis Colts played the better game and really earned their first win of the season.

Patrick Mahomes says Chiefs’ offensive miscues were main culprit in Week 3 loss to Colts | Chiefswire

When asked about the loss after the game on Sunday, Patrick Mahomes shouldered a lot of the blame himself. He felt like he left a lot of opportunities on the field and that the offense didn’t execute well as a whole.

For all but the final five minutes it looked as if the Chiefs’ defense would help the visitors pull out a victory. The Kansas City players on that side of the ball would have carried the Chiefs on a day when the offense sputtered and special teams was a disaster. Then Chris Jones couldn’t keep his mouth shut.

ok, who’s excited about this announcement?

The National Football League said on Monday it has decided to replace its annual Pro Bowl exhibition match between All-Stars with a week-long skills competition and a flag football game starting next year in Las Vegas.

The new event is being called “The Pro Bowl Games” and will replace the traditional tackle football game with competitions between the AFC and NFC culminating in a February 5 game of flag football at the home of the Las Vegas Raiders.

yeah, me either …

”Whenever you’re playing a tough game like this one, you have to execute at a high level,” Mahomes said. ”Our schedule gets no easier, so we have to get better quickly. If we don’t, the Ls are going to start piling up.”

32 yds/19 carries, 1.7 yds per rush attempt, not including Mahomes, is God awful embarrassing and they had extra days to come up with this effort. They are either an underachieving line, the RBs are that bad, or both. It may not be correctable. Defense will have to win the next few games cause that Offense or STs sure won’t.

I have come to expect superhuman feats from the Chiefs on a regular basis, it is unfair of me to rail against shortcomings in their performance. I watched only the final 13 minutes of yesterday’s game, I witnessed the Chiefs muffing a sure TD catch, missing a field goal, failing to close out the game thanks to an unsportsmanlike penalty, and throwing an interception in their last gasp effort. Well, it is to laugh. A championship team shouldn’t appear so bumbling however a championship journey is never a straight line. Go Chiefs

We were playing a team that had literally nothing to lose; they were playing for pride, out of desperation. And desperation can be a powerful ally.

I don’t know why everyone is so mad at Chris Jones, he sure as hell didn’t lose that game all by himself. It was a Special Teams and Offense failure mostly.

I would like to know what Jones said. Can we get an official list of words that the NFL will flag? If not then why? Eric should have been hired off two seasons ago.

That’s not a good look for the o line either. one, that they couldn’t open a hole for the RB, and two, that Mahomes had to scramble …

True. Brown isn’t getting close to the money he was wanting. In fact, he probably won’t even get what he was offered this past year if he doesn’t start playing better.

After the play was over… Illegal procedure, NoVAChiefs, posting things contrary to the prevailing narrative. Five-yard penalty, repeat third down.

(Though as mentioned previously, I don’t disagree.)

Harder to get yardage on a run first team. They’re expecting it.

Over 40% of that yardage did come on one play. Just saying

Wish the 49ers would have pulled that one off last night. I thought it was weird that the 49ers were only 1.5 favorites. Turns out the 49ers for all the offseason hype of a great roster are just something most of the residents of San Francisco leave on the sidewalk every morning. (a lump of shit. If you don’t get my analogy San Francisco is a bum ridden trash pit from my experience which is too bad because it seems like it could be a cool town)

I bring this up for 2 reasons.

First off if the Broncos beat the raiders next they will be in 1st place in the division, which sucks.

Secondly because I’d much rather be the chiefs than either of those dumpster fire teams last night. We definitely have some things to fix after our game but I didn’t see anything that wasn’t probably fixable. How shitty do you feel about your team this morning if you are the broncos. That team looks lost offensively. Their oline is shit and they’ve scored 3 TDs in 3 games. And the 49ers oh boy. I thought they were overrated because their best rb is a wr. Boy was I right. The donkeys just gave the blueprint for everybody to beat that team. 5 down lineman and make Garropolo beat you to broken down kittle or gadget player aiyuk.

How the donkeys have lucked into their wins is mind boggling. I’m sure donkey fans will talk mad shit if they end up being the Raiders, but anyone with a pair of eyes knows that team is the very definition of dysfunctional

I thought Chiefs would go 13-4 (due to a potential injury and/or rookie mistakes).

Now Chiefs will be 100% FOCUSED for Bucs
And Skyy Moore, Chris Jones have LEARNED

As for the DRAMA between EB & Patrick – that shit been going on since the CINN afc championship game……maybe longer. But, those were the offseason reports.

The DRAMA will either make EB/Patrick grow together or separate em.
DRAMA story – too be continued

After some thought, I think when you play as shitty as the Chiefs did, its better for the season to lose than to end up with an ugly win. That makes it much harder to ignore and acts as a wake up call to straighten things out rather than just saying we looked bad, but got the win…

I’m not too worried about the EB/Patrick shit yet. I think people are reading too much into it. They are both passionate people that don’t always agree. That’s not a guarantee for problems. They both could be professional and chalk the before halftime fiasco up to the heat of the moment when things weren’t going the way either wanted. Time will tell if there’s more too the story, but as of right now, I think people are reading too much into it.

You and I don’t agree on a few things but this I do agree with you on. I haven’t been impressed with our offense since he’s been the OC. I know he’s a passionate guy but we’ve had a few episodes between him and Mahomes, and we aren’t getting rid of Mahomes. Smoke = fire in this case.
