  vs. Titans, Playoffs Wild Card Round
Posted by: asskickingboots - 01-01-2018, 11:51 AM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (83)

The 10-6 AFC West Division Champion Chiefs host the 9-7 Tennessee Titans in Arrowhead at 3:25pm Saturday January 6th.  Home playoffs in the frigid weather. Love it!

Just so you know what we're up against.


(EDIT: Video was removed from YouTube. It was Mariota hilariously running into his RB face to face as the ball goes flying up into the air past them as the Jags scoop and score).

That was somehow part of a winning effort for the Titans against the playoff bound Jags (don't think they were resting any players either).

Now, here's where I mention that means the Titans D held the Jags O to 3 points in 12 drives. Statistically the Titans rank 17th in points defensively, 13th in yards, very average. So maybe it's just a case of facing the right team at the right time (Jags offense is not good), or maybe they're hitting their stride at the right time.

Offensively, the Titans are challenged. 19th ranked in points, 23rd in yards. Better at running than passing, but not really good at either. Titans don't take care of the ball and are -4 in turnover margin compared to KC at +15, second best in the league.

It's pretty weird to say this, or rather it would have been 6 months ago or even 1 month ago, but if this becomes a track meet I have a hard time seeing the Titans keep up with KC's offense. The defense will eventually force a stop or takeaway.

We took care of the playoff losing streak a couple years ago. Now, it's time to take care of a home playoff win. If the Chiefs play their A game, they can beat anybody.

Coaching / GM Carousel News

SELF UPDATING NFL.COM TRACKER ARTICLE
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000...velopments

OUT:
Raiders HC Jack Del Rio
Colts HC Chuck Pagano
Lions HC Jim Caldwell
Bears HC John Fox
Giants HC Ben Macadoo
Giants GM Jerry Reese

IN:
Giants GM Dave Gettleman

Also worth mentioning, Hue Jackson is safe despite literally giving the Browns the worst stretch in their less than storied franchise's history. This makes Dorsey less likely to raid our coaching staff, so good news probably.

Two Chiefs assistants that will be looked at for jobs are OC Matt Nagy and STC Dave Toub, especially with some GMs out there with Chiefs connections, namely Chris Ballard for the Colts first and foremost.

  Del Rio out, Gruden in?

Reports are than gruden will coaching the raiders next year with an ownership stake. How do you guys feel about that? I like gruden but I don't think he's as an amazing coach as he seems to get credit for being.

  Game 16: Chiefs at Donkeys

The big question: how many starters will play?

Will we see Patrick Mahomes?

I still want to win this game - it would just be super-cool if we won with backups and third stringers.

I have been listening to satellite radio all day so far.  Cant believe what Im hearing.    I know there is alot of talk from Chiefs fans about Mahomes.  But Im hearing non Chiefs fans several times today about the QB options for Denver and every one of them brought up the possibility of Alex Smith.   I mean Ive heard the Manning talk for awhile but this just hit me.  That could be very bad.  Very very bad

  HEY HG (and other KC area folk)
Posted by: ChiefsChick23 - 12-19-2017, 03:59 PM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (42)

As I think y'all know, we are moving back to the KC area come June or July.  My job search starts in January.

So I'm looking at neighborhoods and whatnot in the Northland to return TO.

While I would prefer, overall, to live in Platte County, I think we'lll end up settling in Clay Count due to our needs.  We want to downsize a bit, so a 2 bed 1 bath is fine as long as they have a basement that's usable. Budget is for a house under $100K if at all possible (fixer upper a bit is fine as along as the bones are good, i.e., no major problems with roof or foundation or wiring).

I'm tired of moving and I really want to settle for good.  Plant some dogwoods and hosta. Smile

I used to live in the Woodhill neighborhood, off Cheauteau Trafficway & 35, not terribly far from Penguin Park (and prior to that, I lived just south of Holiday Hills off North Brighton, and before that in Parkville).  HG, you live in the Gracemor-Randolph Corners neighborhood, right? What do you think of it?  Would you recommend someone move there?

Also looking at Excelsior Springs - lots of opportunity there - but I know diddly squat about it.  Never even went out there all the years I lived in KC, but I have a close friends in Kearney so that area is somewhat attractive (commutes aren't a big deal - KC *has* no commute compared to what I drive daily in Fort Worth).

I have Realtor.com searches running for Clay, Platte, Ray, Buchanan & Clinton Counties (not afraid of living further out if I find just the right thing, keeping an eye on places like Dearborn and Cameron and Plattburg).  But I want to know what it's like from people who are LIVING there now.

What do y'all think?

I did like living where I used to live.  Could easily live in the same neighborhood without thinking twice.  Very convenient, older houses, lots of variety, working class for the most part, which is how I like it.
