I was surprised that the Chiefs weren't able to pressure Cutler more in the last game. Our pass protection has been pretty dubious, particularly on the outside - Lepsis is pretty much done and Pears isn't much. It sounded like (I listen to the games on Sirius) using the tackle and TE to double Jared Allen was very effective... but, as you said, the underlying reason might be fatigue / frustration finally catching up with your front guys.
The OL play by the Chiefs made the Broncos DL look formidable. A number of our young guys got a big confidence boost from that game. IMO, if there is one thing to address on your team, it's the OL... but you pretty much knew that going into the season.
