  Week 12 vs. Bills
Posted by: asskickingboots - 11 hours ago - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (1)

Early in the Chiefs skid it was easy to excuse at least some problems. They were close losses to good teams. Some of the problems seemed correctable with coaching, a change in scheme, or some players getting healthy. But now the losses have began to stack up.

Dropping a game for any reason to a 1-8 team is damn near impossible to explain away, especially if you have any postseason designs.

The postseason is far from a forgone conclusion in any sense, either making it or having any expected success, but the Chiefs remain firmly entrenched at the top of the division with a two game lead despite their best efforts to piss it away.

The Bills on the surface look like an average team, complete with their 5-5 record. However they have a -42 point differential. This is a team the Chiefs need to beat to get back on track, because otherwise this skid could snowball even worse. The Chiefs need to regain some of their early season swagger.

The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Wednesday that the club has signed free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis.
“Darrelle is a proven player in this league and we are excited to add him to our secondary,” Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach said. “He’s had a Hall of Fame career and his leadership and playing experience will be valuable to our defense.”
“We’re excited to add Darrelle to the roster,” Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said. “He has experience and familiarity with Bob Sutton’s defense, he’s a team guy and we feel like a player of his caliber can help our football team.”
Revis (5-11, 198) has played in 140 games (140 starts) in 10 NFL seasons with the New York Jets (2007-12, 2015-16), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2013) and New England Patriots (2014). His career numbers include 485 tackles (401 solo), 2.0 sacks, 137 passes defensed, 29 interceptions, six forced fumbles and 12 fumble recoveries. He has three INT returns for touchdowns. Revis is a seven-time Pro Bowler and won Super Bowl XLIX with the Patriots.  
The Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, native played collegiately at Pittsburgh before being drafted by the New York Jets in the first round (14th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft.

So how many of us here travel?  Is it for pleasure?  Business?  Both?  What are the locations you go to? 

One of my favorite locations when I traveled was in Hawaii.  It was beautiful, the water and the beaches was very clean, and seeing the Pearl Harbor Memorial was beautiful.

Recently, I went to Gulf Shores, AL, and while it was fun, me and the wife ran smack-dab right into Tropical Storm Cindy.  At least I now can say that I survived a Tropical Storm.....

Share some of your stories.

Photo Chiefs players shirts
Posted by: DallasChief - 11-09-2017, 07:14 AM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (10)

So this ad for a Travis Kelce / Tyreek Hill /  DeMarcus Robinson tshirt.  It was interesting to me because Robinson has only started a handful of games and has only 12 catches in his career. I wonder who outside of Robinson's family is looking to buy that shirt.  But there are probably more looking to buy that shirt than some of these other shirts I found.

  Week 11 @ Giants, Normal As Hell Game
Posted by: asskickingboots - 11-06-2017, 05:59 PM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (49)

The 6-3 Chiefs will take an extra week off to prepare and get healthy before facing the NY Giants, who are 1-7 before their week 10 matchup against the 49ers.

It seems like every game has been against some badass team and an elevated national audience. This here is just a plain old noon game against a bad team. And I don't feel bad about saying that. Not even a "pretty good for a 1-7 team" throwaway thought.

The Giants were thought to be a playoff caliber team heading into the year, but those dreams are all but procedurally finished. They looked not awful against the Broncos a few weeks back, their best game and only win thus far, but got soundly defeated by the Seahawks and then embarrassingly demolished by the Rams. They have some real injury concerns too.

The Chiefs have been in desperate need of a bye week for about a month now. This won't cure all that ails, but maybe some rest and some self scouting will do some real good.

Thor is chased by a pissed off dragon and the bifrost shows up and Thor is in Asgard and the drgons head was the only part that made it.  Skurge is running the show.  Why?  Watch the movie.  THor soon realizes the Odin is not Odin after seeing an play acted out about Lokis death.  Has clever way of making Loki admit it.  Now we head to Earth.  The old folks home Odin was in has been torn down and Loki is surrounded by a mystical cicle and disappears.  A card is left. in his place.  Card takes him to Dr Stange.  Yada yada can you find Odin.  Yup great can I have my brother yet, Yep.  Loki is upset.  

Odin is in a field and

Hell Im tired.  3 best hero movie fights Ive ever seen. More immigrant song later and a little Willy Wonka.  Movie had a few to many jokes but was quiet a ride.

  Week 9 @ Cowboys, Trip to Jurrah Wurld
Posted by: asskickingboots - 10-31-2017, 08:18 AM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (47)

The 6-2 Chiefs are preparing for a Sunday afternoon stroll into Jurrah Wurld, home of the Big Fucking TV, another middling overrated 4-3 Cowboys team, and the most incredible collection of people nostalgic for the 90s shy of an X-Files fan forum (sorry CC and NOLA).

The Chiefs are coming off of a MNF home victory that felt immensely different than their others this season, but still familiar. The Chiefs won due to an impressive defensive performance. They still gave up a ton of yards (364 total), but they actually did one of the key things that makes "bend but don't break" defenses work. They got turnovers. 5 of them even, 3 of which flowed out of the conduit that runs the Denver offense, the Trevster. Also, Travis Kelce is hella good and Steven Nelson looked solid in his return.

The Cowboys are also coming off of a big division win, though their win was on the road and in the rain. The Redskins are a little beat up now, so it isn't the quality win most Chiefs fans would assume based on our earlier game against them. In fact, none of the teams the Cowboys have beaten have a winning record. We'll know a lot more about the Cowboys after they face the Chiefs, travel to Megatron's Butthole to face Atlanta, then return home to face Philly.

There's the extra storyline that guarantees this game will get at least some national coverage, "What will happen with Zeke's suspension?". Currently he is slated to be suspended for this game, but he's likely seeking an injunction. We'll know for sure today, I guess. I don't know the details of the case regarding the suspension, or the original domestic violence case that prompted it, but I make up for that lack of proficiency by knowing even less about the process.

The rest of the AFC West all lost and have losing records at the moment, including the Broncos. Despite how good the division looked earlier in the season, and I still suspect most of these teams are some level of decent, the Chiefs are the only team with a positive point differential. That's +56 compared to -2 for the Bolts, -20 for the Broncos, and -21 for the Raiders. It's clear at the moment the division crown will be the Chiefs again barring an epic collapse, especially considering the schedule gets easier after the bye.

Excellent opportunity for the Chiefs to pull further away from the pack in the West, keep pace with the other AFC leaders, and get a little more healthy with the upcoming bye.

  Week 8 vs. Broncos, Monday Night Football
Posted by: asskickingboots - 10-21-2017, 12:28 PM - Forum: 65 Toss Power Trap - Replies (62)

Yet another nationally televised game for the Chiefs as they look to get back on track at home against the Broncos on Monday Night Football. Now would be a great time for some Big Red Mini-Bye Week Magic.

Going into the season many viewed this 3 game stretch as the hardest for the Chiefs and some even considered it the hardest 3 game stretch of any team, Steelers, Raiders, Broncos. The Chiefs went into this stretch 5-0 with a chance to bury multiple potential playoff rivals in terms of the division and home field advantage. Despite having chances to win both of the first 2 games, the Chiefs came up empty handed. Now they have to defeat the Broncos to keep pace atop the AFC.

The Broncos face the LA Chargers on Sunday for the second time already this season. It took last second heroics to defeat the Bolts at home, now the Broncos have a home away from home game to prove... whatever it is that beating the Chargers proves.

The opening schedule for the Broncos has been laughably easy, especially with hindsight and including an early bye. Only the Raiders look like a quality opponent they beat (Cowboys have a losing record at the moment... then again, so do the Raiders), yet the Broncos beat them with a convincing defensive performance dragging a struggling offense to victory as has been the formula for winning in Denver over recent years. The only Denver opponent with a winning record so far is the 3-2 Bills.

The Chiefs schedule on the other hand has been a murderer's row, really only facing one team (likely) out of playoff contention. Still, the end results for the two teams are the only thing that matters and they're pretty similar. Both teams have 2 losses and the Broncos have a chance to tie for cut into the division lead against a team most people think they should beat.

Then again, most people thought the Broncos would have the Giants' collective ass handed to them on a silver platter, but it turns out they had the Giants' hands assed to them instead (think about it).

This is a huge game with playoff implications in front of a raucous crowd of Arrowhead faithful. Get it done, Chiefs!
