So here is game 15:
The Chiefs are 2-12 after their sucky loss to the Chargers. This is a big game for both teams (yes… I am still trying that), as the Chiefs would like to freaking win a game and the Dolphins would like to stay in the playoff hunt. This game could also have great implications for the playoffs division race 2009 NFL Draft (at least for the Chiefs).
For the Chiefs to have a chance in this game one of the keys for them will be to make sure their running game gets on track early (and if we get a lead RUN THE BALL and the clock) and Thigpen needs to keep playing like he has been since we went to the spread (since going to the spread Thiggy’s QB rating is around 90 I believe).
One thing I am worried about in this game is the Dolphins offensive attack. Chad Pennington has been very effiecient this season and with the Dolphins running that ‘Wildcat’ you never know what you will see. So, be raedy Chiefs D for anything that might come.
(Slipping on the RED colored glasses) Looking at this from a positive perspective, if the Chiefs can get that running game going, cash in their red zone and TO opportunites, and the defense stops them every onnce in a while 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 this week against the Fins… at least a little bit. You would think the Chiefs have to win one of these last two right, and this one is at home.
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 seat at Arrowhead this week, hoping very much for a Chiefs victory in this FINAL HOME GAME… its been an interesting year Chiefs let’s try to finish strong!
