Wow, I just watched the 1st half of the kFc game.

Lots of suckage to go around.

Alice Bono was in prime form when it came down to swing routes and dump offs, I guess he hit Bowe on a couple passes 8-10 yards down field, Nothing exciting from a Bronco fan perspective. Yawn.

OL - Their OL is a machine, a pure unadulterated PENALTY MACHINE! When they were not getting flagged for holding (Stephenson and Fisher) they were a turnstile. Smith was crushed for big sacks multiple times.

RB - They better hope Charles foot gets better quick. Davis is a good depth back, but my favorite play by him tonight was his wiff on a pass pro block that led to big sack. Their speedster rookie had one nice play with a great cut and vision but he is raw and doesn't look like he could be a full time RB, not sure where they are going to play him.

WR's - I found one team with worse WR's, Carolina but that is because they let their 4 starters walk. I think by mid season kFc will get that title back. Bowe had to finally show up or give them reason to cut him. He caught most of what was catchable, still no big plays well down field, just possession type stuff and would disappear for stretches of time like normal.

TE's - maybe their biggest strength behind Charles, still not great blocking TE's but they make some tough catches.

DL - Yawn

LB's - Joe Mays had the best play of the 1st half....JOE MAYS!

CB's - Smith would start as #2 or #3 guy on 70% of teams and he still gave up a big catch on a TD drive, Cooper is hot trash. It was hard to tell how good the rest of the CB's were because the Panthers WR's were so bad.

Safeties - Hard to see just how bad they were on TV. Didn't see much in run support, some secondary dude had a sack but not sure if it was a CB or safety, didn't care enough to rewind it.

Punter - Will be used a lot, should hold out for a ton of cash and a free Camero for life.

Kicker - 6 Points WOOO HOOO! Yawn.

I loved how John Lynch praised Alice early then gave up the ghost after Bono kept getting pummeled and couldn't mount a scoring drive of note. I also loved the 1st kick where Lynch was telling us to pay attention to Deanthony Thomas because of his electric return skills only to watch the ball go into the end zone.

Not much to cheer about in MO this year. I can see why the people living there are so upset.

Bowe actually looked pretty good. Fasano is just OK.
The Chefs online is horrifically bad.
They were lit up and Grbac was running for his life all game.
He can scramble though.
! Yeah Joe Mays was their best D player!
Dude is yoked!

Meh. Whether they look good or bad right now, it's preseason.

Yeah I get the preseason irrelevant ideology, but for us specifically , we want to see the improvements and specific players and how they fit in on the team.

But you just don't know how some teams are approaching these games. Some coaches seem to have a point to prove like playing their starters for the whole 1st half. Some coaches want to look at the 2nd and 3rd stringers. Even if the starters look bad, there could be no game planning gong on anyway.

That being said, the Chiefs look like a hot mess for the most part. While I think they're taking a step back this year, they'll likely look much better and more prepared come game 1 of the regular season.

Thing is if this dude needs that kind of motivation to get his **** together I don't want him on my team. Just proves that he doesn't care and is all about the money.

So apparently Jamaal Charles got hurt moving boxes.

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/11...oxes-dorm-room

First of all, Brian Griese tripping over his dog thinks that's hilarious.

Second, why the heck is Charles moving boxes in the first place? Isn't that what rookies are for??

What is funny is that all the kFc trolls have found their way back under their rocks.

Even guys like Zach would come around and post something but since they lost their slip on the division then blew a 28 point lead in the 3rd quarter they haven't shown their faces.

I think KCPud is banned isn't he? They will win a couple games, the idiots will come out of their shanties and start in with the 2000 Ravens talk again.

We looked like total garbage. This is a 6-win team at best.

I see an 8-8 year coming. They won't be bad, but they won't be good enough to compete for a playoff spot.

If you're a Chiefs fan, have to hope to beat Tennessee. Won't be easy minus Bowe.

On the bright side, looking like the Royals might win the Central

What else were they going to use that pick on? QB? WR? a Legit RB? CB?

Its always a good laugh when the chiefs obviously game plan a preseason opponent and showcase an array of blitzes and still get embarrassed.
