Tebow Leads Broncos In Victory Over Chiefs

From Arrowhead Stadium

It was the type of football only a caveman could love.

At a time in the league where the throwing quarterbacks are superstars and their receivers are divas, the Chiefs and Broncos went back to old-time football Sunday.

And Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos put a whipping on the Chiefs, taking a 17-10 victory that was based on running and defense. Only a 56-yard fourth quarter throw from Tebow to WR Eric Decker reached the end zone in the passing game. It was one of just two passes Tebow completed all day.

But the Denver running game was drilling the ball down the throats of a Chiefs defense that was dominated at the line of scrimmage. Tebow had the other Broncos TD on a seven-yard run in the first quarter.

The Chiefs offense was unable to sustain only one drive on the afternoon and that ended with their first touchdown since Halloween night courtesy of a one-yard scoring throw from QB Matt Cassel to FB Le’Ron McClain.

Here’s our coverage.

    How bad are the Chiefs? Will they win another game this year? Probably not. Unfortunately they will not be the worst team in the NFL, we have the Colts.
    Again, poor coaching, poor execution and effort. I hope mr hunt is happy with his extra 30 million he saved this year. Has Brandon Flowers given up more TD than any corner in the league? Can any defensive lineman command a double team? Wow Palko looked better than Cassell has the whole year! (Not really, but better than cassell this game)

    Matt Cassel and Chiefs lose to a guy that completes 2 passes. By far worst lost in franchise history. If this isn’t an indiament that Cassel is not a starter in the league then what is. To all Cassel supporters he had 93 yrds passing. Haley says he don’t want yo yo players when his Qb is the epitome of that. Like most career backups he gives you flashes of brilliance but mostly inconsitent play throughout the game and throughout the season. No one is questioning his leadership but just his talent to play the position. We’ve added more receving threats patched together a top 15 rushing attack even without Charles yet passing we rank bottom of the league. Is the o-line perfect no but neither is the one in Chicago, Pittsburg , Dallas etc. Those QB still find ways to be productive on offense and make plays through the air. Like I said we can talk all day how Chiefs has holes in the roster but until they address the biggest hole which is QB we’re going to continue to lose to teams like Broncos and Dolphins.

    The coaching staff needs to go. Losing to a team that completes two passes all day with a college game plan is inexcusable. The loses this year show that the team isn’t getting the message from the coaches. I agree with the Cassel comment, he’s to inconsistent but the bigger question is why didn’t Pioli address either line in the offseason? We can’t stop the run and can’t protect the QB. Ridicules.

    Remember old Hermie Edwards??? He always said there are only 2 kinds of players. Either “asending or desending”. Well after the last 2 games I think you know where the Chiefs are at. What really gets me more than the loss is everybody and his brother knew the Broncos were going to run the ball and we still couldn’t stop them. Tebow only completes 2 out of 8 passes. WOW.


    November 13, 2011 – Craig says:
    Say what you will about Tebow at least he wins games inspite of his limitations. IF you cannot stop the run you cannot win in the NFL so as they say Not For Long, if the coach cant figure out a way to win.

    A truly horrible showing, but then last weeks game was awful too.

    It’s disheartening to watch both lines get their a$$es handed to them. Cassel is too indecisive, which is lethal since our line can’t hold their blocks.

    This season is over. *sigh*

    Actually it is only one game.

    Haley can do a whole lot better, Muir had better, and Crennel has no, as in 0 DL.

    Cassels hand is in a cast so we get Palko. If I remember correctly, two years ago the very first FA Pioli signed was Palko, maybe he knew something.

    The team may not have given up yet but a whole bunch of fans are calling it a year.

    Good points Ed J…except we certainly can question Matt Cassel’s leadership. He has a whole lot of Philip Rivers/Jay Cutler in him where he points the finger, blames others, and looks like a little baby. Cassel is the one who thru into double coverage several times. Some of those drops were certainly catchable…but they were also several feet from hitting the receiver in stride. Bowe, Breaston and Baldwin should be putting a finger in Cassel’s chest to step up…and although against a Prevent D…Palko was putting his throws right on the money. Something we have rarely seen from Cassel this year.

    Blaming Flowers for getting beat on the TD is a little misguided. It was zone coverage with Flowers underneath and Langford over the top. The receiver was behind Langford which can’t happen in a zone. With Langford also trailing the play that eliminated any chance for Flowers to come underneath. Langford/Washington/Piscateli are pathetic NFL safeties.

    Good Points aPauled. I give you the one on flowers, but he has given up a ton of TDs this year. He has not played up to his money, but then neither has Hunt.

    So EddieJ goes back to his old stand by…blame the QB for no O-line and several WR drops.
    I know you “geniuses” can’t see this on the boob tube, but… there is very little O-line coaching going on this year with Muir in the press box. I can see that from my seats at the actual game. No adjustments being discussed. Albert and Lilja have digressed this year. Richardson and Weigmann have turned in the worst O-line performances I have EVER seen in 34 years of being a Season ticket holder. They both make Jared Black look like a HOF OT.
    If you don’t know who that is, it figures.
    I never thought I would miss Herkenhoff-Brad Budde- Rudnay- Condon- Getty but this group is actually worse.
    Cassel is a good/not great NFL QB with a suck-a$$ O-line and ineffective coaching. Montana would be dead by now in the Muir/Zorn/Haley offense.

    This is Pioli’s mess along with Clark pocketing $30 Mil.

    Dropped passes aren’t Cassel’s fault. Poor throws aren’t the fault of receivers. The skill position players stunk it up today. Our defense has issues, to be sure, but this offense flat out sucks. The O line sucks, the receivers sucked….Did Cassel suck? Yes and no. He got destroyed. To some extent I blame play-calling. Three step drops are all this line can support.

    This team lost three of its best players and there’s no getting around it. They aren’t good enough. I suspect Cassel isn’t good enough but he’s got a valid excuse.

    Too bad we can’t bring that kind of pressure on opposing QB’s.

    This was as bad a performance as we’ve seen in a while. Many valid points but you can’t lay this on Cassel alone. I don’t know if you’ve seen games when Brady, Manning and others have been under the constant pressure Cassel was seeing. It’s impossible to get any consistency with the look out blocks our line is throwing out there. He’s hurt and may get killed if we don’t get more out of that group in front of him. that line would make lousy quarterbacks out of hall of famers they way they’re playing. I agree that Hunt and Pioli are accountable for holding onto a boatload of cash instead of trying to address some of the deficiencies on both lines and adding depth to the defensive backfield. We got manhandled up front again on both sides of the ball. Like a bad high school game. Oh wait, when was the last time you saw a team throw four passes in a high school game and win? Pathetic!


    November 13, 2011 – johnfromfairfax says:
    Sorry, that should read 8 passes but the point’s the same.

    Sorry guys didn’t watch the game yesterday until last night. I made comments based solely off stats which something I got emotional and did. I finally got to watch and most of you are right. It wasn’t on Cassel. Clearly on the o-line and receivers dropping balls. He missed good throw to Breaston late and to Baldwin but that’s only two bad passes I saw all game out of Cassel.

    Now for the o-line its obvious we need help at right tackle and center. So its time Haley send message that type play isnt’ acceptable. Hudson needs to start. Haley said vets still has to prove he can play and its obvious he can’t anymore. Gaither needs to certainly replace Richardson. Whatever his health percentage is its certainly got to be better than the effort Ricardson is given. In a contract yr he’s playing like hot garbage..

    Message to Romeo its ok to blitz the QB in 3-4 defense. Only sending Dorsey, Jackson, Gregg, and Hali isn’t going to cut on 3rd and long. Everyone knows only 1 of those 3 guys I mention are pass rushers. Its not like Tebow has this accurate arm that’s going shread our defense but yet Romeo continues to allow Qb like Tebow and Matt Moore be comfortable in the pocket. Two guys before Sunday who were most sacked in the league. Romeo live up to your reputation make adjustments.
