Game Summary

The starters played longer as promised, and they gave the Chiefs a lead after a bit of a defensive struggle. The Chiefs’ defense was dominant early, forcing 3-and-outs on Arizona’s first 3 drives when they had their starters out. The Chiefs were a bit more uneven on offense with the starters, driving down the field twice but only coming away with a field goal. Once backups starting coming in in the 2nd quarter the Chiefs extended the lead to 10-0, a lead that was sealed by a spectacular Thornhill pick before half.

The 2nd half started of with UDFA rookie Buechele leading a touchdown drive, but the Cardinals slowly worked their way back into the game. But it wasn’t enough as Anthony Gordon led a long drive to seal the victory for Kansas City.

Hey guys, sorry, stuck at work and had to watch on tape delay. Still on, 13 minutes left in the 4th, in other words, its pretty much over. Anyway, I think AZ is in deep trouble. Our defense is improved a bit but that still aint a top 10 unit. that offense looked completely putrid. Maybe they are playing possum, but if i was a fan id be really nervous

Better QB Play woulda caught up to us … They Had Backs in the Flats & WR’s Camping out in front of the LB’s DB’s All Game … Verra Un-Nerving , Save For their Ineptitude at the Helm … : (

I’m about to finish up this Chiefs vs. Cardinals recap. So if you (any of you, lurkers included–especially old timers) want to add any other game thoughts, jokes or summaries. Put em’ in here. Hell, even if you want to copy and paste the best comments from this post (plus this one and that one). It’ll save me some time. Regardless, it’ll be on it’s way. And by the way. . .

Chiefs Win!

I think Pringle made a really strong case to be at worst the #3 receiver, and if Hardman doesnt get on the same page, could end up at #2. DRop is on the bubble bigtime

Bottom line
QB – I have Buechele with a small lead over Gordon
RB – CEH looks ready to have a good year
WR – Promote Pringle
TE – Hope we find room for all four
OL – WOW
DL – Looking good without Clark and Nnadi
LB – Not really tested tonight
CB – Hughes is the man
S – Good depth thin here

That’s one of the things I like about Reid, he takes a player’s psychological situation into account. In Thornhill’s case, he wanted him to be more confident in his knee.

Prediction – Chiefs keep 5 receivers and 4 tight ends – Hill, Pringle, Hardman, DRob, and Kemp with Powell and Fountain on practice squad Kelce, Bell, Gray, and Fortson for tight ends. I think another team might pick up Fortson if released.

Would take balls to keep Fountain over DRob but would not be opposed to see it happen.

Maybe we can trade him to the Texans. I think if we give them a 6th they will gladly take him off our hands.

Could be, but based on how well Fortson looked blocking, I could see them cut Bell and keep Fountain on the roster. I understand that Fortson was blocking 2nd and 3rd stringers, but the fact that he was sticking his shoulder in there could open things up a lot for him and the team. I like Powell and hope they can sneak him to the practice squad. Just hope someone doesn’t snatch him from us if we do that, though. I don’t think Fountain will make it to the practice squad. He is going to play somewhere.

Great point – Glad they showed Fortson’s blocking as the game wound down. I could live with Bell going to keep Fortson and Fountain.
