    If it takes the Ravens till the 4th quarter to put the chiefs away they're vastly improved. I actually watched the entire second half of this one after carolina started tanking, I wasn't switching through like the second games.

    They're far better than last year already
    Chiefs were pretty scrappy last year also, had a lot of close games that they just didn't win. I think thats the thing you can count on them for.


    Props to BK on the sig!

      I've always thought the Green Bay secondary was vastly overrated, so them running wild on them doesn't impress me much.

      I still think they're all garbage, and none of them will amount to anything. If they want Cutler to succeed in Chicago, they need to find him someone that can play the WR position. Oh, and actually use their most physically gifted player on offense (Olsen).

        Exactly. People see the 27 next to Detroit and automatically assumed that our defense gave those points up without really watching the game.
        The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

          Giving up 501 yards to Baltimore, gaining 188 yards on offense?
          From what I gather, KC was lucky to even be in the game that late. They should be thankful for that long INT run back by Johnson and that blocked punt that essentially gave them 14 of their 24 points.
          I don't think the Chiefs looked particularly good, but interceptions and special teams are part of the game. In fact, turnovers and special teams have a significant impact on every game, so you can't just dismiss those plays.

            ah cool, after 1 game you could already tell that a rookie wont amount to anything, you should be come a scout...

            and also Olsen was double and triple covered all game. they tried to use him but it wasnt like they didnt want to

              As has been mentioned, it doesn't matter where points come from, it matters that they're there. Detriot shouldn't have been able to come anywhere near 27 points regardless of how they did it.

                  New Orleans managed some massive offensive numbers against the Detroit Lions. Fourth year nobody Mike Bell managed to bash his way to the tune of 140+ yards and Drew Brees seems to be staking his claim for MVP early throwing a massive 6 touchdown passes. Jeramy Shockey finally showed his worth catching two touchdowns and the young receivers in New Orleans are starting to play a better brand of football. Worryingly though, despite the Detroit Lions throwing three interceptions and running for the grand total of 34 yards, the Saints still surrendered 27 points. The defense has to be better, it's not every week Drew Brees will throw for six touchdowns and it's not every week they'll face a team that's lost seventeen (now eighteen) regular season games in a row.
                  the problem with the point scored against were on the back of an appaling special teams performance. Of the total offensive production of the Lions (238 yards) a big chunk (63 y) was one deep play Calvin Johnson and imo if you play the Lions that can just happen. The two turnovers were also costly. One was returned for a TD (the fumble) and the other one was returned for 26 yards). There were also to many costly defensive penalties.
                  But to sum up the special teams disgrace.
                  - two muffed punts (of which one was lost)
                  - had a fieldgoal blocked
                  - allowed 180 kickoff return yards on 5 kickoffs
                  - allowed 55 yards on 2 punt returns
                  and keep in mind these were pretty good kickoffs and punts (Im already less angry about drafting morstead, I know its hypocritical but wth)


                  Saints 2014 draft wish list:
                  - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
                  - Corner or Wideout in the first
                  - No reaching
                  - No Kelvin Benjamin

                    That was a recieving corps running wild on a secondary, really? Take away those two plays and they did very little.

                      Olsen was getting double covered quite a bit.

                        I don't know why everyone keeps saying the Saints Defense is still bad based on the Lions game. The Saints D after week 1 is ranked No.7 overall, 3rd against the run and 13th against the pass. Our Offense and Special Teams gave up at least half of those points and kept putting our Defense in a very bad position.

                        In your write up, you make it seem like it's all the Defense fault. Why didn't you say how bad the Panthers Defense was for giving up 38pts?

                          For the record, if yesterday and the entire preseason is any indication, Kamerion Wimbley is not a bust. Great player so far this year, our best linebacker.

                                meh, I guess we disagree since I think Charles Woodson is the second best corner in the league, al harris is a good corner and they have a good pair of safeties. That may not be a great secondary but it is a certainly a good one and the bears receivers were creating separation. But I guess we'll see as the season progresses.
