Just line up & play. This team is different then those of years past. I'm excited to see how this season turns out. If we can maintain a relatively healthy roster, this team can be special. There is more balance between all 3 phases then I've ever seen from this team. I welcome any challenger at this point. Alex has a little "F it" in him right now & we as fans should too. Enjoy the season because it might be a special one to remember.


Exactly right. Alex Smith is different. He's himself, he has character, no longer a robot. As long as he keeps playing like this bring on anyone. We need to win every home game and make a statement in this horrid AFC. This is ours.

Very true. The Steelers didn't have to worry about our punchless running game and could focus on Tyreek and Kelce. Kareem makes that a bad game plan this time around. But if Kelce can't play it almost takes us back to where we were. And our defense is missing a ton from the secondary they faced that day. Steelers come in hungry and healthy. This is one I put in the loss column from day one. But again your right this team even missing pieces has more options and as prior post said a QB playing better than anything we've seen in many years. There has to be a tipping point to all these injuries though at some point right?

The good thing is we may have some key players coming back for this game like Ford, Morse and LDT. I'm hopeful about Kelce too considering he passed the original test and came back out before being pulled. So one would imagine he has a decent chance of being Ok for Sunday (fingers crossed).

Sure there is a tipping point but why worry about it now. We can prepare for it by developing depth and allowing the GM to do his job but we have a shot this season. You as a franchise has to role with the punches and keep moving forward. Alex is playing lights out because this is his one last big shot to shine in his career. Andy is not holding back on his play calling and it shows. Personally I think Andy was waiting for this to happen and now he is really opening up the playbook because he knows this is our window right now. With Ford and possibly Hali coming back in a couple weeks will bring additional depth and pressure from the LB's which will help the back end in coverage. I get the caution but F it and play! The Chiefs will lose a game or more this season, they will probably not go undefeated but if they stay healthy at key positions we have a legit chance to bring home field advantage through the playoffs. Nobody wants to play at Arrowhead if we are playing like this in the playoffs. What better story line is it for the Chiefs to get home field and sweep the playoffs at HOME in front of our fans.

I forgot to talk about the interior line too... when they get healthy we will be that much better.

I don't think he'll be playing. He's not practicing today and hasn't even started protocol.

I think Bell has a decent day. It will be tougher for him. DJ and Logan weren't there last time he ran against us.

Not sure we rush Ben much. At least we didn't in the playoffs.

I think the Steelers are a wounded animal and Berger, Bell and Brown will be on a mission. It'll be high scoring and my man, AAA, will pull us through in the clutch. 35-31

He was under heavy pressure in the last three games. They are not pass blocking well

It will be interesting how Sutton approaches it. This win will be very sweet.

He is already in concussion protocol though? And Reid said today that "he's feeling good". So I wouldn't rule it out just yet.

Chiefs D always holds our opponents to low scoring at home. It’s up to the offense to come through and put up at least 30 to secure the W

I stand by everything I said about AAA before this season when he was BAA. Now he's playing like a legit NFL QB and as a Chiefs fan I love it.

defense needs to tighten up in this one and the offense needs to keep it rolling.

 

It's already been happening, but you can count the Chiefs getting everybody's best shot every week now. 

 

It should be a heavy dose of Kareem Hunt as PIT struggles against the run as do the Chiefs.

 

It could be a game where both teams focus on the run keeping the scoring down.

Keep playing Erving. I bet a lot of college teams are more organized than the Browns when he was playing for them. Just because you’re an NFL team doesn’t make it a solid environment to thrive in the game of football. Erving is making the most out of giving a chance to play for a superbowl caliber team

With the team we fielded last week..i think we win. With the critical injuries now stacked on top of the already growing list of injuries...im a bit concerned.

Dee Ford was back at practice today, so minus a setback he should be good to go. Kelce's concussion looks mild, but most guys we have have missed a game. I'll call him 50-50. The other guys are highly unlikely to come back until after Raiders game in my opinion when we could possible also get Tamba back based on his tweets anyway.
