Good morning, AG!
Today in Chiefs history, well, yesterday, actually but I didn’t see it mentioned…Feb 8, 2000 and 2021, Kansas City lost two icons. Derrick Thomas and Marty Schottenheimer. As for today, all I have is we are 3 days from making more Championship history.
Let’s just stay in the present for today, and get right to Super Bowl news. Have you heard that the Chiefs are playing this year?

“For us, when you look at officiating, I don’t think it’s ever been better in the league,” Goodell said. “Our officials do an extraordinary job. … Are there mistakes in the context of that? Yes.

The town that forged Super Bowl brothers Travis and Jason Kelce: ‘No place like’ it | KCStar via Yahoo

The story linked above, “A truck driver, security guard, four others. And the Patrick Mahomes story they share”, is well worth the read. AOL.com has the non-paywall story there too. (vs. The Star)
The writer, Sam McDowell, asks one of the guys who intercepted Patrick in his senior year, 2013, “So how often you tell people about this?” I wonder out loud.
“Come on, man,” he replies. “Every chance I get.”
Not so bold prediction for this game.
Chiefs will have more sacks than the iggles.
Eagles have given up far more sacks than the chiefs this year. Mahomes only 26 sacks on the year versus 44 against the eagles. Lot dumbass chatter about our super bowl appearance from 2 years ago. For all the talk about that game (that has less than nothing to do with this game) mahomes only took 3 sacks and he was playing on a bad wheel that game too that required surgery.
my buddy placed a bet for me – since I don’t bet
PATRICK – throws ball behind his back for a completion in SB. Since Chiefs will blowout Eagles by 14+ points on Sun 2/12

What did they ever do to you?

Nate Christensen at the other place (ducks) had similar conclusions on how to attack Hurts.
We need pressure, pressure, pressure. If Hurts can stand in the pocket unmolested he is deadly. I started watching a bunch of the eagles replays and I was surprised at the throws he was making. Then there were other games where he was much more pedestrian. If you let him stand back there and hit his first read, he makes throws that I wouldn’t trust Pat to make (ducks again). His down the field sideline throws are fucking beautiful (chicago game he had several of these) not lasers like mahomes or rainbows like Russell wilson. He just drops them right over the shoulder 35 yards down the field. (He’s been less accurate since coming back from the shoulder injury) Against zones (see the vikings game) he takes his time and delivers highly accurate strikes.
His weakness is when things get hairy. Starts moving around in the pocket the accuracy goes away. Outside of the pocket drops to zero. That’s why he just tucks and runs. Which is why blitzing is dangerous.
I don’t trust our zone at all against this team. I think rushing 4 and dropping 7 against this team is a huge mistake. Their line can pick up our front 4 on most plays and Hurts can throw just as good as Burrow into our crappy zone defense.
We should be running man and bringing pressure from different spots. Including on 3rd and long. We’ll get beat sometimes but it’s worth it. One note on getting beat is they throw to the outside long so rarely do you get break away plays. Big plays 30+ yards but not 70+ yards.
What ever we run at Lamar, I expect a lot of it against Hurts
I’m less worried about Hurts running than Lamar but far more worried about his passing.
I actually don’t think Hurts and Lamar are very comparable as players.
I do think they run similar type offenses. Lots of RPOs. Play action. Designed runs. Hurts is a QB that can run not vice versa like Lamer.
He’s going to be walking slow with his head down on Monday
since it was snowing outside . . .
no wonder why they have flying fish down there.
Trent McDuffie and the Chiefs’ Not-Rookie CBs
On the other hand, the Chiefs pass defense has posted better-than-average DVOA in every regular season and playoff game since Week 16. Some of their performances have been impressive from both a raw statistical and analytics perspective: DVOA of -32.4% against the Seahawks in Week 16 (200 passing yards allowed, one interception), -18.8% against the Jaguars (205 passing yards, a Watson interception) in the divisional round and -24.7% against the Bengals (238 passing yards, interceptions by Williams and Watson) in the AFC Championship. So a little enthusiasm is warranted.
Chris Jones emerged from Aaron Donald’s considerable shadow this season. Now he has his chance to give the Eagles offensive line hell in Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney Limited in Initial Super Bowl Injury Report
Both Toney and receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) were both active over the course of practice, according to pool reporter Connor Orr. Head coach Andy Reid reported positive results for players on the injury report, a group that also includes quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
“All the guys that were banged up, I thought, moved around well today,” Reid told the pool reporter. “I talked to them and they said they felt well.”
