Are you serious? What better game to open up the playbook than testing it on a garbage team? That's alex smith. He cannot throw downfield. 34 pass attempts and 174 yards to show for it. Kaepernick averaged 10 an attempt smith 5. That's why they got rid of smith. His suckage handcuffs offenses.

Think about it this way, if they win one more game they will equal their win total from last year!

They can't get worse than not holding a lead for the 1st 8 games in regulation.

I would hope so, I memorized and could figure out the routes they were running in that bunch formation they ran 40-50 times.

I'm not excited, but shutting out any team 28-0 is pretty ****ing impressive.

We treated the Jags exactly like a good team would treat a bottom feeder.

Aren't you worried with what you saw tonight in Philly? To me it shows that Reid isn't as good as his rep is. A college coach steps in with the same team and they look very good.

the defense is pretty much over hauled not to mention the scheme switch. kelly also has the benefit of a pretty good draft class coming into year two. fletcher cox and brandon boykin coming into their own , plus they brought in 2 new starting outside corners. the offensive line is finally healthy BUT ANYWAYS NOT TO NIT PICK HERE. for the life of me i can not figure out why chip kelly paid a boat load of money to connor barwin when he has a plethora of freaking edge rushers. when we lost doom i was screaming for elways to pry vinny curry or brandan graham (more preferably) away from the eagles. theyre sitting on a gold mine over there and its going to waste. trent cole is getting up in age but dammm its freakin BS .

i do believe andy reid is a bum of a coach though. he rode donavan mcnabb and jim johnson and fell apart with out him. he drafts a RT first over all goes for the dream team part 2 by bringing in high priced corner backs (sean smith is ok but dunta robinson is OVERRATED -- never liked him truly a bum . ) he kind of had to in order to combat our STACKKED wide receiving corps. eric berry tamba hali and houston fell into his lap so we'll see how they grade out. not sure if reid is the type of coach id like to play for. doesnt seem like a leader of men IMO. they have a boat load of talent in KC but its just a crappy orginization - not sure they can pull it together as a TEAM. especially behind the more mobile orton AT QB

I'd say it's more a reason to be encouraged more than pretty ****ing impressive

I checked out that game - curious to see how KC was doing. Don't see much in the offense, but that defense is going to be outstanding. Houston is a monster. Hali is a monster, Johnson is a monster and now their NT Poe is wreaking havoc in the middle. Hell, even Tyson Jackson has decided to play this year. Only my opinion, but their secondary looks to be on a roll as well.

This team may not do much this year, but their D is going to kick ass and take names. Hell, it didn't take more than one half for me to see that.

By the time we get them late in the year, it should be interesting.

I saw an article in the paper today that a record number of double-wides have been listed for sale this week in Kansas City. The article speculated that many KC residents were trying to put together the funds needed for Super Bowl tickets.

Absolutely not. KC was the WORST team in the NFL last year yet they have completely revamped their defense; from D coordinator to the last player on D and it shows. The destroyed a team that was right where they were last year. And, I have a feeling that they will do the same against Dallas on Sunday. We will see.

Pretty much like the wholesale changes that took place when Manning came aboard. Remember the year before he got here?

It doesn't take much these days to turn a program from a pretender to a contender (although it ain't happening in KC) - at least not this year.

They looked a lot better, but I think Washington played a big role in this too. They didn't look prepared at all.

RG3 was obviously rusty, but Alfred Morris looked terrible. Their defense was also completely gassed after the first drive. I know Kelly runs a fast offense, but if your defense looks exhausted after the first drive of the game, it reflects on the coaching IMO.

They made some changes, but their secondary is still suspect. I still doubt Poe and Jackson will continue to dominate against good teams.

If they dominate Dallas as badly, I'll be convinced they are a very dangerous team.

I just don't see that happening; should be close.

Poe looks like a completely different player this year. He looked good in preseason. Really hope he keeps it up. He is facing a rookie C this week, but we'll see.

This will be our first real test. We'll see what happens.
