Mark my words....KC will come crashing back to earth.
This is no indictment on Alex....just sayin I expect them to finish around 8-8 or 9-7.
That's very possible, but that Chief team reminds me a lot of the 2011 Niners. Top notch D, great RB with receiving skills, questionable WR quality, team built on defense, clock control, field position, and not turning it over. Their QB makes the smart, safe play every time unless the situation is desperate, and it works for them.
Compared to the 2013 niners, I like their D line and secondary better, I like their receiver group better, I like their RB better, and so far in 2013 I like their QB better. The 49ers should have the better LB core and the better O-line, and better upside at QB.
If you had to bet right now, Niners vs chiefs total wins, who would you really want to put money on?
Not even close.
Look...this opening 5 game stretch was always going to be a challenge. There are ALOT of games left and many, many opportunities to improve. We will also be getting a number of guys back.
KC had had a good start to the season. Good for them. I am not about to put the 2011 49ers label on them tho. They were never as bad as their record last year.
