Chiefs Fight But Give Away Another One

From Arrowhead Stadium

Give the Chiefs credit for this – they are a flawed football team with a collection of underachievers but they accepted the challenge on Sunday and went toe-to-toe with the Baltimore Ravens.

They still lost, but they put up a helluva fight and held the Ravens offense without a touchdown. Unfortunately, the Chiefs offense couldn’t score a TD either and it all came to a field goal inspired 9-6 conclusion. Baltimore went home with a 4-1 record and the Chiefs are now 1-4.

Turnovers reared their ugly head once again, as the Chiefs gave the ball away four times. The Ravens had a pair of turnovers as well, but the Chiefs answered those gifts by giving the ball back. Justin Tucker and Ryan Succop scored all the points on field goals, even though the game featured plenty of offensive yards.

Chiefs QB Matt Cassel went down in the fourth quarter due to a blow to the head in a pass rush and left the game. Brady Quinn took his spot, but the Chiefs were not able to get anything going offensively enough to reach the end zone.

So much to talk about, and here is our coverage.

    God are these Harbaugh brothers a couple of “classless guys”. Did anyone notice when Ray Rice picked up that very final first down to seal the game for the Ravens that John Harbaugh turned around to the fans and shouted something. I would presume it was a “nasty” and not telling them to have a nice day. His brother in S.F. is identical as I can still see him shoving the Lions Headcoach Jim Schwartz aside after a game last year. They are 2 really classless coaches.

    Oh, I don’t know…I’d give my left……pinky finger to have one of them coach our team. My guess is there were some ‘fans’ giving it to him pretty good for the whole game and he just let them know that he came into their house, ate pancakes, slept in their bed and left.

    Some fight. The defense showed some signs of life, but four turnovers and two TDs taken off the board by the zebras does not a victory make.

    Absolute hose job by Dean Carlson of Morelli’s crew. He didn’t call the 3rd down interference on Baldwin, calls the pick when Dex gets thrown to the ground costing us the winning TD.
    At least the replacement refs made honest mistakes. These guys have an agenda.

    Quinn looked very good BTW.

    I was also pissed. I think the refs gave this one away. That call for a pick was BS. If guys run into each other it’s the offense’s fault?

    @cychief24… I think it’s too early to make that assessment. I think when he came in the team converged around him and tried to win this, and he threw a couple of good passes, but that doesn’t mean much if you ask me. Daboll clearly had the passing game under wraps as well. It’d be nice to have a QB that could actually throw to our amazing receiving corps. (Bowe, Baldwin, Breaston are no joke).

    Got to say, I did not think the refs did not do all that much to effect. McC getting knocked to the ground on a pick was because he no lead in his pants.

    As for the offense, running is all the Chiefs can do in a serious attempt to win a game in a passing league. This team was designed that way and by Pioli with a substandard QB and no competition since he was signed. It was waiting years for OLinman and WRs. It is the ONLY way the Chiefs can win without a total rebuild.
