Originally posted by qnnhan7:Rodgers longest pass was that scramble to that out of bounds throw that was somehow caught by that WR. It looked like a comeback out route . That was it though. He still got about 300 yards and Aikman was on his nuts. He's a good qb but not crazy all time elite. It's more McCarthys' offense system than anything that deserves praise.

Even though it was the Jags, I told you guys that the Chiefs have the right tools in the right places. They don't have great WR,
but with a hardcore outside run game that later turns into some playaction and dumpoffs, that will tire any defense if done without many mistakes and will increase your chance of winning.
Coupled with what I call the BEST CB core in the league and a pro bowl MLB , you have something cooking.
SPEAKING OF CHECKDOWNS,
HOLY FPHUVK DISCOUNT DOUBLECHECKDOWN Aaron Rodgers.
SLANT, DUMPOFF, SLANT, SHORT PASS, SHORT PASS, CHECKDOWN, DUMPOFF, ONE LONG PASS THAT WOULD'VE BEEN OUT OF BOUNDS AND CAUGHT.
Yet somehow that was 300 yards with Aikman and Joe Buck giving Aaron high praises. If Alex could do the same, which I'm sure he's capable of now, he'd be in that category.
Lots of short passes against us from Rodgers. They were just trying to string together some 3rd down conversions and 1st downs then finish the drives with the scores. And their offense is good enough to not make mistakes stringing those plays together into a good drive.
If, you know who, does it -- 'captain checkdown' is the label
I don't remember a deep connection against us in that game....?
If Alex can do the same thing, Chiefs are as good as playoff bound.
