  WEEK 14 Raiders at Chiefs
Posted by: ChiefsChick23 - 12-06-2017, 10:00 AM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (30)

AKB hasn't started one, so I'll do it. Might break this unlucky streak.  Big Grin

The Raiders can go fuck themselves.  Win or lose, doesn't matter, they suck.

  Question for Chiefs fans, Herman Edwards?
Posted by: Mr.Smartass2U - 11-29-2017, 10:50 PM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (24)

Hello guys.  It's been awhile, good seeing you all again. I'm hearing Arizona State is interested in hiring him, that's the reason I ask I'm personally a UCLA fan.  That aside, from what I remember, Vermeil left the team in ruins, defense was horrible besides Jared Allen, and the offense was built on aging talent like Trent Green/Eddie Kennison/Tony Gonzalez/Willie Roaf/Will Shields/Larry Johnson that quickly started declining or outright retired right when Herm got in.  My question is:

1.  What did you think of him as a coach?

2.  How well was he finding young talent for the rebuild?  

3.  Was he a victim of circumstance?

  Week 13 vs. Jets
Posted by: asskickingboots - 11-28-2017, 07:26 PM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (57)

The 6-5 Chiefs travel to Jersey to face the 4-7 Jets in Met Life Stadium for a noon game.

After a surprisingly not horrible 3-2 start, the Jets have since lost 5 of their last 6. Yes, just like the Chiefs have lost 5 of their last 6. We're dealing with the resistible force vs. the moveable object here. This is not where I thought we'd be a month and a half ago, about to have a match against the Jets that will likely only prove which team is worse.

I haven't paid one iota of attention to the media, national or local, regarding this game. I get a feeling all the national guys will talk about is Revis facing his old team. I'd have a hard time caring less about that angle. I'm much more interested in if Revis can be any help at all.

The only way this game matters to me is if the Chiefs win and it helps jumpstart them back to decency at least. During the hot start I was thinking anything less than making the AFC Championship game would be a huge disappointment. Now, I'd settle on at least making the playoffs one last time for some veterans like DJ as we send Alex packing in the offseason and get ready for the Mahomes era. Note, I've never been a "tank for better draft picks" kind of guy.

Of course, if things get much worse, particularly for Smith, we could be looking at the Patrick Mahomes era starting this December and talking draft if we even bother talking about the Chiefs at all.

It's amazing how even just some success can make the sting of failure worse.

So... our trip to KC sealed the deal.

We are moving back in the summer of 2018.

So if anybody has a lead on someone needing a marketer or a martial arts teacher in that time frame, preferably north of the river... lemme know.

Time to come home.

  Black Friday 2017

Just in case anyone wanted discuss or brag about any Black Friday deals, here's a thread for you. 

I haven't bought much this year so far, but I did help my parents get a Samsung 40" 4k LED smart TV for $330 from Wal-Mart's website. Other than that it was all small stuff.

I haven't checked places like Rally House or Charlie Hustle yet, but has 30% off orders of $30+ with a promo code, so I know I'll hit that later.

  Week 12 vs. Bills
Posted by: asskickingboots - 11-22-2017, 10:04 PM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (24)

Early in the Chiefs skid it was easy to excuse at least some problems. They were close losses to good teams. Some of the problems seemed correctable with coaching, a change in scheme, or some players getting healthy. But now the losses have began to stack up.

Dropping a game for any reason to a 1-8 team is damn near impossible to explain away, especially if you have any postseason designs.

The postseason is far from a forgone conclusion in any sense, either making it or having any expected success, but the Chiefs remain firmly entrenched at the top of the division with a two game lead despite their best efforts to piss it away.

The Bills on the surface look like an average team, complete with their 5-5 record. However they have a -42 point differential. This is a team the Chiefs need to beat to get back on track, because otherwise this skid could snowball even worse. The Chiefs need to regain some of their early season swagger.

  Chiefs Sign CB Darrelle Revis
Posted by: mabbott - 11-22-2017, 04:47 PM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (13)
The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Wednesday that the club has signed free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis.
“Darrelle is a proven player in this league and we are excited to add him to our secondary,” Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach said. “He’s had a Hall of Fame career and his leadership and playing experience will be valuable to our defense.”
“We’re excited to add Darrelle to the roster,” Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said. “He has experience and familiarity with Bob Sutton’s defense, he’s a team guy and we feel like a player of his caliber can help our football team.”
Revis (5-11, 198) has played in 140 games (140 starts) in 10 NFL seasons with the New York Jets (2007-12, 2015-16), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2013) and New England Patriots (2014). His career numbers include 485 tackles (401 solo), 2.0 sacks, 137 passes defensed, 29 interceptions, six forced fumbles and 12 fumble recoveries. He has three INT returns for touchdowns. Revis is a seven-time Pro Bowler and won Super Bowl XLIX with the Patriots.  
The Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, native played collegiately at Pittsburgh before being drafted by the New York Jets in the first round (14th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft.

  The Travel Thread

So how many of us here travel?  Is it for pleasure?  Business?  Both?  What are the locations you go to? 

One of my favorite locations when I traveled was in Hawaii.  It was beautiful, the water and the beaches was very clean, and seeing the Pearl Harbor Memorial was beautiful.

Recently, I went to Gulf Shores, AL, and while it was fun, me and the wife ran smack-dab right into Tropical Storm Cindy.  At least I now can say that I survived a Tropical Storm.....

Share some of your stories.

Photo Chiefs players shirts
Posted by: DallasChief - 11-09-2017, 07:14 AM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (10)

So this ad for a Travis Kelce / Tyreek Hill /  DeMarcus Robinson tshirt.  It was interesting to me because Robinson has only started a handful of games and has only 12 catches in his career. I wonder who outside of Robinson's family is looking to buy that shirt.  But there are probably more looking to buy that shirt than some of these other shirts I found.

  Week 11 @ Giants, Normal As Hell Game
Posted by: asskickingboots - 11-06-2017, 05:59 PM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (58)

The 6-3 Chiefs will take an extra week off to prepare and get healthy before facing the NY Giants, who are 1-7 before their week 10 matchup against the 49ers.

It seems like every game has been against some badass team and an elevated national audience. This here is just a plain old noon game against a bad team. And I don't feel bad about saying that. Not even a "pretty good for a 1-7 team" throwaway thought.

The Giants were thought to be a playoff caliber team heading into the year, but those dreams are all but procedurally finished. They looked not awful against the Broncos a few weeks back, their best game and only win thus far, but got soundly defeated by the Seahawks and then embarrassingly demolished by the Rams. They have some real injury concerns too.

The Chiefs have been in desperate need of a bye week for about a month now. This won't cure all that ails, but maybe some rest and some self scouting will do some real good.
