So here is game 10:
The Chiefs are 1-8 after putting up a respectable showing last week against the Bolts and are back at home to play the Saints. This is a big game for both teams, as the Chiefs need a WIN and the Saints are trying to keep pace with all of the other teams in their division.
For the Chiefs to have a chance in the game one of the keys for the Chiefs will be to make sure their running game gets on track early (LJ comng back determined would be a great asset for the Chiefs about now) and Thigpen needs to just not lose the game for the Chiefs (another showing like last week would be GREAT Thiggy). This should be possible since the Saints are ranked in the lower third of the league against the pass and have injured CB’s. Good Luck Thiggy.
One thing I am worried about in this game is the Saints ability to gian yards in bunches and put up points with the quickness. You know they like to throw the ball with Brees and I just hope that the banged up CHiefs defense can put up a strong showing.
Looking at this from a positive (and HOMER-ISH) perspective, if the Chiefs can get that running game going (WITH Larry Johnson, FINALLY) and the defense stops them every onnce in a while and creates some turnovers (like last week) I think we have a shot here. The Chiefs MUST win the turnover battle and cash in on the TO’s they do create if they want to stand a chance. That’s a lot of “IFs”, but I like our chances.
As always please post any comments, pictures, or whatever in the comment section below before, during or after the game. If you see something that you hated (or loved) let the rest of us know!
I’ll be yelling from my season seat ar Arrowhead this week, hoping very much for a Chiefs victory.
