Re: Versus the Chiefs

Absolutely the Saints can beat the Chiefs!

I'm from Kansas City and I have been a Chiefs fan since I was a kid and when I was 12 years old and they won the Super Bowl I wore that sweatshirt with pride till it fell apart.

Yes the Chiefs have some talent but I honestly feel they have also been out coached the last two games

GM Piloli is taking most of the heat this week for Sundays embarrassing 35-17 loss against the Bills - but I think there's plenty of blame to go around.

Arrowhead is loud - real loud - but the dome should play a factor - if the fans make it loud and keep it that way for the entire game.

(re: Mark Ingram) Does winning meaningless games REALLY mean that much? I'm more worried about the future than I am about this year where we've already fallen coming out of the blocks.
So exactly what college player do you see right now to draft that's worth throwing away games? Our QB is locked up for 5 years, Colston and Thomas are locked up, the window of opportunity is now not 5 years from now.

What you hope for is that some hotshot DOES emerge during the season (like last year) so that teams are willing to trade up for them and give us THEIR draft picks. We swap 1s and get their 2 and 3 and maybe a 1 the next year. Use those picks and our own and get the talent we need.
The thing is that this season ended before it started when our coach was taken away. I've had season tickets since I graduated from college and will have them for the next 20 years (god willing). I'm no longer concerned about this year. I want to have a team to cheer for the next 20.

0-2 people. KC is a beatable team. It's in our house. Granted I have no confidence in our defense but I do think we can put up more than they can and win it. We are a good enough offense to stay .500 while our defense rounds into below average form and actually gives us a chance to win a few where we can't score 30.

That why you have NFL scouts....
They're watching folks that will be ready when that time comes. I'm NOT a fan of throwing away the season base off 2 games. I'm hoping things start clicking... soon

We need to do the same.
I wont flame you, because I like you, and someday you might save my life, or at least fix my
bellybutton. But I could never be on board with doing that. No way.
Neither Kromer, nor Vitt will do it, because this is Open Audition Time for
both of them.

How about if we lose this weekend? How about if we go 0-6 before Vitt returns? At what point would you be willing to say "Yeah, go ahead and lose 'em all so we'll have a better team next year"?
