imo, the 2013 Chiefs really remind me of the 2011 49ers.... defense and special teams. Offense...well they have a home run threat at RB at any given time..but no where near close at TE...at receiver they have a better bunch imo.
I think they'll beat the Texans...unless Schaub, tries to play like Alex. Texans can stop the run. If Andy is not creative, then Alex is going to need to hit his 3rd down passes against the Texans.
and I personally think they can beat the Broncos as well, NOT SAYING THEY WILL..lol..... some forget but the Chiefs a couple of years ago, stopped the undefeated high powered Packers...and that was with God knows who at QB..Cassell or another Backup.
I just think they can beat most teams, like the 2011 49ers were able to, as long as the opposing team plays undisciplined. 49ers lost to the Ravens that year Thanksgiving night because they played focused. They didn't take sacks, were patient with the run, took care of the ball, and converted key 3rd downs in the second half.
However Alex has shown this year that, although he might be careful with the ball...when the game gets close again...he will attack here and there. Like that 3rd and long vs the Eagles was it? and he threw it beyond the 1st down marker. As well as some mentioned in the Titans game...backed up against their own endzone...old Alex, just make room for the punter.....Chiefs Alex though took a shot deep and connected.
so yeah there is no guarantee that even if you do play smart on offense, that you can beat the Chiefs...but imo, that is your best chance.
