Spags is a better DC than I gave him credit for. I felt for the longest time that he was over-rated, but his defense was flying around everywhere out there.
We don’t have a 3-tech. McNeil suffers from the same syndrome that plagues big guys trying to play like smaller guys… they lose their balance after the first move and end up on the turf. Hopefully Levi continues the rebuild, but he was invisible. Benito’s strength is his anchor as we seen all night. He couldn’t move or be moved.
Gibbs is special. Can’t wait to see him against a lesser defense than Spags’s.
The 1st down pass that Goff made to Ra in the 2nd quarter was sick. Dropped it in a spot between 3 defenders that Ra ran to. Sick.
I almost cried when Branch returned. I soooooo didn’t want to hear the same “ankle injury” report that we heard with Walker.
As painful as the interior DL was to watch at times, we still came away holding KC to 2 TD and 2 FG.
You still get a sense of SOL from the officials. Much will be made of Kelce not being there, but the refs tried making up for it by giving the RT a head start all night.
Honestly, what a game to grind out. Felt we were the better team and glad we could pull out the win.
How did the Chiefs not punt the ball on 4th and 25 and give their defense a chance to hold thenLions inside the twenty with a chance to get a field goal to win down one point. I would be pauper mad if went for it.
Will Harris, what is he still doing on this team. I know we dog him for past mistakes but he almost lost this for us. His punt return blocking on the gunner was some of the worst I have ever seen in 30 years. Not being sarcastic either. Cut the guy tomorrow.
My take on the offense:
Lots of execution errors held back the offense today. Bad snaps, fumbles, false starts, etc. Bascially all the execution errors. Goff was clutch when we needed him. The RBs are stars already. We do need help at WR. I’ll have to look at the all-22 but getting open was a struggle.
I thought Ben Johnson called a good game. He played it safe and let the Chiefs struggle for points. From the first quarter KC was frantic trying to get points by making dangerous passes (there should have been 3 ints this game). The Lions were making errors but not really putting the ball in danger.
I was told taking Jordan Davis would have been a mistake instead of taking Jamo…still waiting to be told that all season as it looks like this DL needs a real, big nasty, 3 tech, like, idk, Jordan Davis would have been…
Yeah, I’m really confused by that. I know you have Mahomes but your WRs were playing like ass all game. Why go for it on 4th and 25, backed up at your own 30 no less? I’m sure it’s going to lead to some conspiracy theories
