For this Thursday night, we have what a few weeks ago looked like a blowout game. Now, my money is on the Denver Broncos with Joe Flacco at the controls versus the suddenly exposed my adopted hometown Kansas City Chiefs. I like Flacco, he's a pocket thrower who with the right tools can do amazing things. I was extremely irritated when he was forced out of Baltimore by "Blank Canvas", who is one of the worst of the bunch of quotabacks being shoved down our throats. Patrick "It's Pat!" "Side Show" "******* Man" (pick your invective) Mahomes is actually very good. But even he can't save this Chiefs team with a rotating badness on the offensive line (Cameron Erving-LT, Martinas Rankin-LG). The Chiefs just signed Stefen Wisniewski at LG, but it will be hard for him to overcome the matador at LT Erving. How this guy even has a job is beyond me. Must be the "upside". Chiefs largely coal defense is just as bad as last year. Ben Niemann has been really good as the anonymous white tackle machine on defense, along with Daniel Sorensen who somehow is in on every play when he is allowed on the field. But when both have to deal with offensive linemen running down the field because they sumos up front suck, it makes for a long night. Here's the game plan, if you're the Broncos. Run run run on offense. Chiefs can't stop you, so you can dominate the clock. On defense, play straight man-to-man. A normal 4 man rush will give Mahomes about 1 second in the pocket before it collapses and he has to bail. Man defense for 3 seconds should be no problem. Game over. Easy, right? That's typical for a Fat Bastard upside-laden team. Just ask the Philadelphia Eagles faithful.
