How many games will the Chiefs win PYMWYMI

If the Chiefs are going to have any success against the Texans offense, they're going to have to be careful not to over pursue. On running plays, the Chiefs defense must maintain backside pursuit. The key to slowing down Foster in the run game is taking away the cutback lane. The key for the Chiefs' defense is to be gap disciplined. As shown in both videos, both Foster and Tate have the vision to cut runs back for big yardage. The Texans much like the Chiefs run a WCO. So by design, the offense is built to attack the field horizontally. What the Chiefs' defense must do in this game is force the Texans to beat them throwing the ball down field. One of the reasons for the Texans alarming turnover rate is due to defenses sitting on the underneath routes. The Rams layed out an excellent blueprint on how to slow down J.J. Watt. They spent most of the game doubling him on pass plays and running from him on run plays. More than likely the Texans are going to try to line him up over on Fisher's side of the field. So it's going to be imperative for the Chiefs' coaching staff to give Fisher help by leaving a guard, back, or tight end on his side of the field.
The Rams laid 38 pts on the Texans That won't happen again, but it's still worrisome for the Texans. This is a 'back against the wall game ' for the Texans. I think this is going to be a good game. Chiefs need to better pass protect than last week.
They are winning too many games too fast. Our pick will be a very late 2nd. I was hoping for a mid 2nd which would be much more valuable. But I guess at least it's a 2nd.... You should start losing some games now though Chiefs.
I think there's a pretty good chance the Chiefs end up as the first team (since they went to 4 divisions) to win 13 games and still be a wild card.

It's either them or Denver, but yes.
If you guys think losing 8 slots in the draft is gonna make or break the 49ers future, then you are guys are insane. Tell me who in the low 50s pick this year is killing it versus a high 50s/low 60s pick???

Many of you were doubtful KC would even be legitimately in the hunt for 8 wins, and now you're being freaking greedy wanting the Chiefs to go 2-8 from here on out.

Hate to break it to you, but the Chiefs have that 2011 49er recipe of success and Smith is one of the top QBs in the league to win regular season games with that formula. Thanks to a last place schedule that Smith probably has only seen since 2006, he has not had to battle the very top teams in the AFC. Next year, probably more so.

Good point on the schedule...and the hysteria! LOL! One of my favorite things about the NFL is that teams can jump so radically based on a coaching change or a couple of players. The Chiefs looked defeated last year before the opening kickoff. This year they look like vets who are taking things in stride. I love the fact that they aren't going nuts about winning early in the season, but would expect that from Reid and Smith.

It does make a difference if we are taking about trading down. Even one pick makes a difference. Let's just give our 2nd round for another that's two spots higher for free.

I don't give a crap about the Chiefs. I want them to win ONlY 8 so that it maximizes anything the Niners can get. Let us care more about other teams and trade good talent for weaker compensation or give away a couple of spots in the draft. Hell no.

What I don't understand are folks who want to root for another team knowing that it will weaken our draft status.

Oh noez! The 49ers would have to pick like 12 picks later!!! Whatever would they do if they really like someone, but don't want to use one of their dozen high picks to move up and get him?

C'mon, fellas... it is truly nobody else's business which or however many teams a fan likes. You do not get to dictate such things to others. WE are all 49ers fans.. and it is disgusting that some of you want to pull the "superior fan card" in times like this. I feel like others here, that KC is an intriguing story reminiscent of what SF did in 2011. I like this story, and would not begrudge KC's success just so that SF can move up a dozen spots with an extra 2nd rd pick. I have been through enough drafts to appreciate the flexibility in teams getting who they want.. one way or another.. and it's usually not a prospect I wanted them to get anyway.

Stick a cork in this... we all know what's really going on... and some are not hoping KC's success stops due to a dozen draft pick difference. They hope KC falls on their face because they hate... have always hated KC's quarterback.. and the more success he has? The angrier and more self-conscious they get.

You are pulling the "superior fan" thing right now. You are such a good fan that I don't mind our team picking 12 spots later. The rest of us who want the best player available for our team, should get over ourself and root for a worse draft pick. What sense does that make? I root for Alex because I respect the player, but there is nothing wrong with fans wanting the best draft pick they can. Have you seen our WR situation? Our pass rush situation?

Seriously...

Actually, no... I am not pulling any such card. My point was simply that I won't harshly judge either stance one wishes to take... and it is my belief that others should not as well.

There is nothing "really" going on here. If SF were getting a first rounder if the Chiefs win 14, then I will cheer for the Chiefs to win 14.
Look, we all want our draft pick to be as good as possible but at the same time it was a conditional gift from the start based on a team many doubted would get to .500.

It's sorta a win/win for many of us. Good draft pick balanced with a good story.

A chiefs team destined at best to go 8-8 or 9-7 would probably not even get 8 wins. Realistically I had them at 10-6, maybe 11-5 before season began.

Their pace looks to be maybe 12-13 games but that's no guarantee that will happen but could happen.

Unless I'm missing something , the chiefs going 14-2, 15-1 or deep in playoffs is still better than finishing a 7-9 team for the 49ers 2014 draft.
I started to want us to get that 2nd round pick, but now I'm not so sure it won't be wasted on a bust WR pick. Meanwhile all this abnormal love for KC...why? so what if they have our leftover checkdown simi bust former qb. I hope they lose the rest of their games after eight wins
