I live in the KC area... and Trent Green was on WHB 810 last night before the game comparing the Chiefs and the 9ers as "Very Similiar Teams". He said there was "No Reason the Chiefs shouldn't beat the 49ers and go to 3-0".
I think his tune may have changed after last nights game. IF you have watched the Chiefs play, they have won because of great special teams, fortunate turn overs and a couple of big plays. I was actually insulted that Green thought these two teams are that similiar.
Arrowhead is a tough place to play, but the niners SHOULD win this game. The Chiefs are not that good... NO WAY that Matt Cassell could pull a Drew Brees.
Special teams is still a concern... again...
I heard that interview. I'm in KC too. Did you hear 610s Bob Fescoe this morning? What a joke. Here's the gist of what he said, "...the Niners are imploding and Singletary has lost the team and his mind. I couldn't watch that game last night, because I knew it was going to be awful."
On 810, they are surprised that the Niners are (-1) favorites to win. They had Jeffri Chihda (sp?) on the line and he even reinforced the fact that the Chiefs would be well served not to overlook the Niners on Sunday. The announcers were silent and shifted the focus to the Chiefs "good" plays against the Browns.
(Believe me, they were few and far between)
They're (local media and fans alike) chalking this next game as a win. Of course, I guarantee the Chiefs organization is paying attention, so I'm sure they hope the Niners don't play like they did last night (except for the turnovers!)
If the Niners play mistake-free football against the Chiefs they will hand them their first loss and I'll get to hear this sad-sack radio host cry about it. That would make me very happy.
