But drops matter. Ball security matters. Concentration matters. Being able to keep pace in a shootout -- it's taken 31 points in a game, on average, to beat a Peyton Manning team since 2008 -- matters. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good read. Certainly accurate for many points in these KC games. Yesterday was really the defense and receiver drops. Prior to that, much went to an OL that couldn't block. They seem to have improved that, now that Stephenson and Schwartz are getting snaps... and that they are opening up the offense.
I still don't have a big problem with Bowe... aside from his inappropriate contract taking away from what KC can do in the offseason. He can be lazy and drop balls at times... but he is overall a good target. Avery is so hit or miss... can make some big catches and then drop so many easy ones.. he really is a # 3 receiver playing # 2.
Been saying it a while... they are a worthy playoff team, but likely don't have the "muscle" yet to make more than a brief appearance. That could change in the next month, but it's asking for a lot from a team that's already exceeded a lot. If they can add a 1st rd WR like Beckham Jr. to start opposite of Bowe and push Avery/others to # 3/ # 4 ? If they can solidify their FS spot with an upgrade? The Chiefs can gel more in the next offseason and go all the way in 2014. I sure hope that they do, if WE can not.
Good posts to both of you! And top of the morning! Who would have guessed that the defense would let the offense down...other than we realists? Over 27 points average per game and they lose all three?
