Im happy we won, but come on....its getting old that we continue to play down to the competition.

Perhaps, so you feel it's a coaching issue?


Coaching and our players seemingly letting their guard down.

Its been happening since the Cowher era, so Im not sure what to say about it.

Heres a fun fact: Chiefs average 3.6 turnovers a game.

Our "number 1" defense has 0 tonight........

We need some play makers on D terribly.


Thank you Timmons.

Clark looked really good tonight, at least from a first glance. He's playing lights out as of late.

BS, you can say that and I can't?

bias


You really arent that bright, are you?

Big difference between that and your "FIRE TOMLIN, HE SUCKS" nonsense.

Im not getting into this again.

There were several posters who tried to explain it to you last week. Your obvious lack of comprehension prohibits you from understanding the difference between criticism and bashing. If you dont get it by now, you never will.

Good day.

It's the best he's played in years I feel. I've been hard on him before but he has been their most consistent secondary player this season. It sucks that he gets hurt right at the end of the game with what is possibly another concussion.

I think we can be fine with Leftwich getting a full week to prepare for the Ravens as long as we find the running game again which was surprisingly absent tonight.

I'm more concerned about the health of Ryan Clark, who if he got another concussion.....might be out for a long stretch. I don't wanna see Mundy on the field.

Thank you!! Lefty will be fine if they cater to his play style and are able to run it to not allow 3rd and long. That's the biggest difference between Big Ben and Leftwich, though that's not to say if Lefty gets rid of it, it'll be a strike. Mundy is a huge liability in pass coverage and run defending.

Coaching and our players seemingly letting their guard down.

Its been happening since the Cowher era, so Im not sure what to say about it.

On top of losing their guard, they never seem to get it back. They might score and get ahead, but then it seems like every single time we just let the other team hang around. It's mind boggling. It seems they lack that finisher mentality!

Me too, at times I feel like there has to be a better option out there, but there is no denying he has his stretches where he goes off.

Yep....while I love this team, they are incredibly frustrating for that very reason.

Eh. We'll see. I like leftwich, as he's been fairly reliable in the past. I think he is pretty much ineffective though at this point. He's a tree back there, he ain't movin, and it's easy to key on the run, when the pass game is a weakness.

What do you mean key in on the run?? I'd think that with a young rookie QB or a QB with a noodle arm. If you stack the box and Lefty gets rid of it, he can make you pay if you have 1 on 1 coverage. We just need to not make him dink and dunk it, and need better run-blocking. Also, Mendy probably coming back will help.

I'm just saying what I think. It's not far fetched to think that a defense would key on a teams run game, when said teams back up QB is playing. It's also not like you can't key the run, while also being wary of the deep ball. If I was a defensive coordinator, my gameplan would be to stop the run and play deep coverage over the top and force leftwich to beat you in the underneath passing game. But hey that's just me

That's a fair assessment and I like your reasoning. I just don't like generalizing all backup QB's together. Leftwich has a way different playing style than Dixon.
