The Kansas city fan base deserves this game. 

Chiefs fans in a nutshell 

Watch LaVonte David and see why you dont pay Milano 14 million. They are on completely different levels.

Can't stand seeing dirtbags like him and to a lesser extent Fournette win rings. 

Not a fan of his but have to admit that he had a huge game last night that helped seal that W.

Mmmm...I thought that one PI was iffy.  But for the most part, agree. 

 

The problem is, not any different than the crap the refs have been keeping their laundry in their pockets for other games - most recently, AFC championship game.

 

Consistent reffing is a huge problem to the perceived integrity of the league IMO.

 

 

Wow

If they had picked up the flag because they ruled it uncatchable I could definitely see that, but it was pass interference if it was a catchable ball...they do definitely need to be consistent. While I don’t want to see 20+ penalty games every week, if it’s a penalty one week then call it every week

I'm hearing on GMFB that the Chiefs are whining about all the penalties they had...

 

All I can think of is how Tony Romo kept describing that "sticky defense" against Buffalo all game long. Which basically meant that the Chiefs DBs were holding, mugging Bills receivers all game long.  (Save Cole Beasley who still got open)

 

Watching the game the Chiefs DB's tried that against the Bucs and were called for it over and over that first quarter. Actually tripping a receiver and then both corners holding on the same play.

 

The Chiefs offensive line holding like crazy too. Saw a KC O-linemen grab a Buc defender by the collar and drag him down with no penalty. On another play a chiefs player had his arm around a Buc play throat from behind, no call. 

 

The refs didn't change the outcome of the game. But let the KC players know that they needed to play by the rules...and they still were holding. 

 

Which leads me to believe that the Bills are really not that far off from beating the Chiefs.

I dont know. The Bills vs Chiefs and last nights game were night and day. The Bucs utterly destroyed them. We had to fight tooth and nail for every inch on offense. Ands on defense we looked lost. Their guys were open by 5+ yards consistently against us. While nearly every catch was contested last night. So the Bucs not only had a much better pass rush but also much better coverage, even on short passes like the quick outs and slants.

Just want to highlight my perspicacity. I posted this on Saturday:

 

PREDICTION:

 

The Bucs will win, going away. This will be the only Super Bowl that Brady will have won by more than ten points. Brady won't necessarily have a great game, but the Bucs overall will dominate the Chiefs.

 

I don't say this because I like the Bucs--I'd much rather see the Chiefs win and Brady humiliated. I say the Bucs will win because:

 

1) The Chiefs are missing both their starting tackles

2) Reid's son's DUI puts a child in the hospital in critical condition

3) The best game the Chiefs have played in the last three months was against the Bills. They have been living on borrowed time and now their luck runs out.

It means changing who we are. We are a coverage defense not a pressure defense. We are a passing offense not a running offense. You have to be able to rush the passer and run the ball to beat KC. Neither of which we are really built personnel wise or scheme wise to do.

I thank your response.  I respectfully disagree.  I am of the belief that the Bills have the core players on defense to be aggressive.  Offense add two athletic guards and a RB with speed to  mix with what they have and your running game will be better.

Half of their D line are cast offs anybody could have signed, Ndamukong Suh, Jason pierre-paul. They were considered washed up. Start with a  rejuvenated JJ Watt if he becomes available and if he'll play for a championship and not money.

It takes just one player to change a defense and it's attitude.

Let's be clear on this: Tampa Bay has a better defense, and they succeeded in getting strong pressure with their front 4 and doubling Hill and Kelce.

 

If the Bucs didn't have strong pressure on Mahomes and they allowed him to stand in the pocket and manipulate the secondary with his eyes, eventually Kelce and Hill would have been open by 5 yards.

 

If our WR had not been being mugged by KC all night (and KC penalized for it), we might not have had to fight quite so tooth and nail.

 

More than one thing can be true.

Do you think this mattered?

 

I felt like the Bucs had better personnel on D and a masterful game plan to whup KC's O

 

But I also felt that the refs calling DH and DPI penalties and a PF (which were, for the most part, totally legit - but went uncalled in the AFC Championship), had a strong influence on the first half of the game.  And, there were a couple of them that were IMHO questionable.

 

Part of me wondered if the Refs were given the word to call any legit penalties for those things that they saw, because of 2) and the NFL not wanting the Chiefs to win with the DUI investigation/child in critical condition hanging over them.  Maybe I'm secretly conspiracy-minded

Disagree, Allen is used to the pressure, hes had it consistantly all year and has made plays all year. Mahomes isnt showing me anything while under pressure.

 

This is in response to my post. 

 

Just FYI (from the Shoutbox) I'm not the only one to see it this way.  I think it's very consistent.  When Allen scrambles around and makes a risky throw or takes a sack the announcers proclaim he's "melting down" "taking bad sacks" "pressing" "got away with one".  When Mahomes was doing similar things the announcers pronounce he is "trying to make things happen" and "almost threw a completion".   You can call it a "pathetic take" or 'disagree" but that's what I hear.

@BringBackFergy i was laughing at those...when allen runs 20yards behind the los and almost throws a pick hes trying to do too much, when mahomes does it hes got the heart of a champion trying to will his team to a victory lmfao

I thought the DUI/accident incident was less likely to be a factor than the other things I mentioned, but I thought it might have some effect.

 

I could never have figured that the refs would start calling those penalties they did not call two weeks earlier, but I agree it had a significant effect. It's interesting because generally it's been my impression that, historically, refs call games looser in the playoffs. So it must have shocked the Chiefs to have those PI and holding penalties called, and put them off their game.

 

I really think the decimation of the Chiefs' o-line was the greatest factor in the game. Brady played well, but any good QB would have won that game for the Bucs--they were that dominant on the offensive and defensive lines.

Let's face it as there were a lot of non calls in that AFC Championship game. This was what even the announcers were saying about Bills receivers. That Chiefs defense came in as the #10 in points allowed, #16 in yards allowed. The Ravens had a better defense. 

 

The holding kept Diggs from getting open who was Josh's main target all season. 

 

Now switch to defense and think about how the Chiefs might have been holding Jerry Hughes and Co. 

 

Yes, Buffalo had their share of problems in the playoffs as they didn't look anywhere near as good on offense has they had all season. Both In the red zone and on 3rd downs. The game plans and play calls left much to be desired. The Bills offensive line looked pretty bad against the Chiefs too...dunno why.

Losing their starting LT late in the AFC Champ game was a blow to the Chiefs, no question.  But, they had to have expected heavy pressure from Tampa.  They seemed to have no answer and no ability to adjust.  It'll be interesting as the all-22 comes out to see if there were actually no answers or if Mahomes didn't take them.

Haha. Brady sends apology text. Remind me who the penalty was called on again? NFL is ridiculous in how certain players are treated. How many times have we seen Allen destroyed with no flags. You say a word to Brady - even in a case he is now apologizing for his actions and you get flagged. Cant touch or talk to Tom.

It's weird... Brady won but I don't feel that bad. I'm not glad but after the way the Chiefs acted in the AFC Title Game I'm not sad either.

 

Plus it was Tampa and Arians not NE and Belichick.

 

Will I actually root for him vs NE next season? I cannot wait for that game. It's going to be an existential moment.

The LB play was key and it exposed just how far Buffalo has to go on defense.  The d-line comes in second for me.  If the LBs don't do their job then the pass rush doesn't much matter. 

 

This seems to be backwards of how coaches usually explain the cart and the horse on defense

Watching and enjoying the replay right now, they just showed Spagnuolo congratulating Brady after the game. Dude's a friggin' midget,  I never knew that.

The Tampa backers took away the short zone. The Bills linebackers were unable to do so. Mahomes had nowhere short to go when Tampa pressure arrived. When the Bills pressured he had his pick of short passes because our LB play was weak.
