Creed Humphrey Lands on Pro Football Focus’ Midseason All-Pro Team | chiefs.com

https://www.chiefs.com/news/creed-humphrey-lands-on-pro-football-focus-midseason-all-pro-team

Humphrey earned a spot on the Pro Football Focus “Midseason All-Pro” team this week, becoming the only rookie to earn “First-Team” honors. In fact, only one other rookie – Cincinnati Bengals’ wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase – even appeared on the “Second-Team,” further exemplifying how unique it was for Humphrey to earn an All-Pro nod.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid provides injury updates on Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Kyle Long | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/chiefs-hc-andy-reid-provides-193302863.html

Reid also provided an update on Kyle Long, who remains on the Physically Unable to Perform list. He’s also working very hard and getting closer to making his return, but the Chiefs aren’t in a hurry to get him on the field.

“Yeah, so he’s working,” Reid said of Long. “He’s another one that works like crazy. We’re getting there, I mean we’re getting close. But it’s not because, he’s not in there, not because of effort right? He’s been working his tail off.”

Now that they’re 4-4, it’s make or break time for the Chiefs as they prepare for three consecutive games against first-place teams. It starts this Sunday at home against the Green Bay Packers, then a road game in Vegas against the Raiders, and they’ll follow that up with a home game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Packers pass on activating LT David Bakhtiari, who won’t play vs. Chiefs | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/packers-pass-activating-lt-david-185305893.html

The Green Bay Packers will wait for one more week before bringing back All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari. The team passed on activating him from the PUP list on Saturday, meaning he’ll miss Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Jordan Love catches a break, with first start coming against a bad Chiefs defense

It hasn’t exactly been a good week for the Packers, who lost Aaron Rodgers to the COVID-19 reserve list and then found themselves at the center of an NFL investigation into whether they violated the league’s protocols with their treatment of the unvaccinated Rodgers. But there is one silver lining.

Packers quarterback Jordan Love gets to make his first start against the Chiefs, who have perhaps the worst defense in the NFL.

Chiefs LB Nick Bolton reacts to October Defensive Rookie of the Month win | usatoday

https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2021/11/06/kansas-city-chiefs-nick-bolton-reacts-october-defensive-rookie-of-the-month/

“I was actually in the locker room with one of my linebackers, O.D. [Dorian O’Daniel],” Bolton explained. “He said congratulations and I was like, ‘What for?’ He’s like, ‘You won player of the month,’ so I was ecstatic. Just for me, I was never trying to win the award, but to get something like that from the product I put out on the field, it was an exciting moment for me, but not the highlight of my season I hope to be. So, coming out the next day to work, trying to get it again. That’s a goal, I just keep trending up toward I can be the best football player for the football team.”

As long as it kicks off at 9am Arrowhead Time, I really don’t care where it is played.

Though that means the game is kicking off at midnight in Tokyo.

Play the receiver quiz – Hill, Hardman, WWDRob, Pringle, Gordon, Fountain, and Kemp are the answers with a special mystery guest. Each answer is used once – match the receiver to the appropriate commentary…

A – Hmmm – I never heard the referees call illegal possession of weed before.
B – Give the special teamer another chance – He cannot be worse than everyone else.
C – Damn – I cannot drive that fast in my car – it is National Beat Your Son day.
D – Give the young guy a chance – We have to do something cause these others suck.
E – I want to drop my balls on that stupid ass face of his – potential my backside.
F – I bet his stepbrothers – Myron Lays and Ryan Ruffles – could beat out those jokers.
G – HE RAN THE WRONG WAY. THAT MOTHER RAN THE WRONG F WORD WAY.
H – I may not be able to beat a net but I can beat out these sad sacks in a wheelchair.

I will be gone during the game thread – going over to watch the game with my son sans computer. Will get on the victory thread when I return. I am wondering what the first negative comment will be on the game thread. Here are the choices for defense.

A – Why is Dirty Dan covering someone deep?
B – GD Niemann is running back seven yards and being pushed back four more.
C – All that money and Clark is nowhere near the quarterback.
D – Move Chris Jones back to DT.
E – Spags is in Bob Sutton and Greg Robinson territory.

All wrong.

It will be: Andy Reid is so stupid for not taking the ball after winning the toss. Our offense is going to be behind by 7 right away.

Yeah. As bad as the Clark trade looks in hindsight. At the time, most felt it was a decent trade because he was probably the best available pick up and the steep price was due more to it being a sellers market than simply a stupid over pay. And everyone was loving the trade after we won the SB the following year. Opinions didn’t really sour for him too bad until last year.

As per the OBJ move this week – I think the Chiefs might pull the trigger if their offense is stagnant again this week. IF Hardman, WWDRob, Pringle, and Gordon fail to put reasonable numbers on the board, win or lose, the Chiefs might pony up some money to get him. He does want to go to a playoff contender. I believe that Veach could find a way to make it work. IF our offense looks better, I think the Chiefs pass on him.

The Chiefs don’t need him. He is a me first malcontent that made one special catch that he should have been called for offensive pass interference on.

What I expect to see from the offense

1 – Chiefs will try and run the ball up the middle – I expect Williams to get the load but Gore makes another appearance. Gore might be fighting to keep his roster spot as MEH-CEH is set to return. I think the Chiefs will be determined to keep Patrick out of the third and long situations.
2 – I expect the Chiefs to target Travis Kelce quite a bit – He and Tyreek seem to take turns dominating the action. It is about time that Travis has another huge game.
3 – I expect to see a lot of quick passes, jet sweeps, check downs and such – trying to get the ball out of Mahomes hands as quick as possible.
4 – Not sure how the Packers handle speed – I know the Chiefs will test the waters but this part of the game is a mystery to me.
5 – X factor – Hardman, WWDRob, Pringle, Gordon – one of them will have a big game and we will need them to for the offense to get out of the funk. I am going to predict – for the last time – that Gordon puts down the weed and actually gets targeted this week and we will see the rewards. I would love to see the Chiefs target him early and often to try to get his mind involved in the action.

IF we have any semblance of pressure, this game will be a blow out as Jordan Love will be forced into making mistakes. How much of a blowout will be determined by how much we stop their running game and how good Love can be with his legs. IF we have little to no pressure, it will be a back and forth affair but with the Chiefs pulling away in the fourth quarter. I believe this is the game that our offense turns the corner.

Division Leaders – Titans (6-2) Bills (5-2) Ravens (5-2) Raiders (5-2)
#5 – Bengals (5-3)
#6 and #7 – Chargers (4-3) and Steelers (4-3)
#8 thru #11 – Patriots (4-4) Browns (4-4) Denver (4-4) Chiefs (4-4)
#12 – Colts (4-5)
The Jets, Dolphins, Jaguars, and Texans have a combined five wins.

At this point, who cares what the Titans, Bills, and Ravens do. The Raiders, Chargers, and Steelers all have easy opponents – Giants, Eagles, and Bears respectively. Huge loss for them if they do not come through – You have to beat the weaker teams. The Broncos at the Cowboys and the Patriots at the Panthers – I view those as must games for those teams and I think both of them are going to lose. Colts sitting at 4-5 but have an easier schedule than most coming up. HUGE game is Browns at Bengals – Browns fade with a loss and Cincy falls back in the pack – opening up another playoff spot for others to chase – with a loss. I am pulling for the Browns – I think that helps us better. This is not a must game for the Chiefs – but if we lose – next week is a must game versus the Raiders. If we win today, next week is not a must game for the playoffs but is a must game if we want the division.

I definitely agree that Denver will suck against Dallas. Eagles have the best chance of pulling an upset but there is an outside shot that the Giants beat the Raiders. Life is not over if we lose but we hopefully do not waste this chance against an Aaron Rodgers less Packers team.

Worse Case Scenario
LV (6-2)
LA (5-3)
Denver (5-4)
KC (4-5)
Would have to beat the Raiders or even the playoffs will be in doubt.

Best Case Scenario
LV (5-3)
KC (5-4)
LA (4-4)
Denver (4-5)
Chiefs regain the division lead with a victory over the Raiders and still in the thick of things should they lose.

16 – The Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers
15 – The Brett Favre Green Bay Packers
14 – The Pete Carroll/Russell Wilson Seattle Seahawks
13 – The Mike Tomlin/Big Ben Pittsburgh Steelers

I posted these yesterday – remember – #17 was the Hank Stram/Len Dawson Chiefs. I plan to finish either tonight during SNF or tomorrow during MNF.

Assume 20 more TD passes this year and 40 for next year – both reasonable numbers – that puts Mahomes right outside the top 50 – currently 196 TDs – but Ryan Tannehill and Derek Carr – with 188 and 182 – will surely reach the number, making the number to catch being 199. Those 60 additional TDs would put Mahomes at 192.

MVP STANDINGS
1 – Tom Brady
2 – Matthew Stafford
3 – Kyler Murray
4 – Josh Allen
5 – Dak Prescott
6 – Patrick Mahomes
7 – Derek Carr

Commentary: Brady is the clear leader but is on a BYE this week so this is the chance that the others need to make a move – The top contenders all play suspect teams so they need a win piled with good statistics. Stafford, Murray, Allen, and Prescott need to keep winning to surpass Brady – That seems like their only chance. Mahomes is still on the list – He is the one guy who could get super hot and beat Brady even if his team does not have as many wins – it would be very close though.

Murray and Allen need three TD passes to remain in serious contention and Dak needs four. Mahomes needs one and Stafford is good – A solid number two on the list. IF a quarterback does not hit his number AND his team loses to a lesser opponent might knock them from the list.

THIS WILL BE THE WEEK. Patrick Mahomes with 133 career passing TDs needs two more to tie for #100 of all time. Three TD passes will tie him for #98 and four will tie him for #97. Patrick is currently tied with Michael Vick – is one behind Jeff Blake – and will join Bobby Hebert, Jameis Winston, and Don Meredith at #100. Neil Lomax and Matt Schaub have 136 TDs at #98 and Sid Luckman has 137 TDs at #97.
