Chiefs/Chargers pregame

The Chiefs and Chargers meet again, this time at Qualcomm Stadium. In the last meeting, Kansas City’s run defense limited LaDainian Tomlinson to 71 yards off of 23 carries. However, San Diego backed away from the running game and attacked with their receivers. Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes. Vincent Jackson, Darren Sproles and Malcom Floyd got into the endzone. Sproles and Jackson were both big contributers as each one of them caught a pass over 50 yards. The only touchdown scored by Kansas City was from Matt Cassel to Dwayne Bowe. Bowe will be not be in action as he serves his second suspension out of the four he must sit out from. Chris Chambers had no participation in the first meeting, being cut by San Diego for lack of production, which has been the complete opposite for Kansas City. The Chiefs have also moved forward without Larry Johnson. Jamaal Charles and Chris Chambers have been key contributors since becoming starters in Kansas City. After losing to the Chargers 37-7, many things must go perfect for the Chiefs in order to pull out another upset. The Chargers, who have won five straight, defeated Denver last week to become leaders in the division. If Kansas City Chiefs fans want to see their team pull out a miracle and make a playoff appearance, then this is a must win game for the Chiefs. Keys to the game: 1. Play defense: The Chiefs defense allowed over 400 yards and 37 points in the previous meeting and need to limit the Chargers in round two. 2. Feed the ball to Charles: Out of all rushes, receptions and kick returns in the past three games (since the bye week and without Larry Johnson on the active roster,) Charles has 59 touches for 492 total yards from scrimmage (41 rushes-197 yards, 9 receptions-41 yards, 9 kick returns-257 yards.) He’s averaging eight yards per touch in the past three games. Larry Johnson has 461 total yards from scrimmage on the season. This should clearly state how valuable of an asset Charles is. I’m picking the Chiefs to stop the red-hot San Diego Chargers 17-10. This will be tough, but without Johnson and his distractions, the Chiefs won’t be set back. If they lose, that clearly puts their hopes of reaching the playoffs in a miracle manner in jeopardy. I have no problem with seeing this team lose, as long as they don’t set beat themselves by setting themselves back. Chargers Inactives: CB Dante Hughes, RB Michael Bennett, S C.J. Spillman, C Nick Hardwick, OT Jon Runyan, WR Buster Davis and DE Luis Castillo. The inactive third quarterback is Charlie Whitehurst. Chiefs Inactives: OLB Mike Vrabel, G Andy Alleman, RB Dantrell Savage, LB Justin Rogers, TE Sean Ryan, TE Jake O’Connell and LB David Herron. The inactive third quarterback is Matt Gutierrez.

First off, it’s Christmas week. Merry Christmas to all of you! Thanks for all the support. I’ve attended some Christmas parties hosted by some family friends who I have not met. Lately, when meeting new people, they seem to know who I am just because they’ve seen me on the newspaper, or a magazine or on TV and have given me great comments. I’m only 18 years old, but this just shows that a teenager (no matter what country he came from) can do whatever he pleases to do if he chases his dreams. I just want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart!

There is a reason as to why this game is blacked out. Yes, the weather, the economy and a battle between two teams fighting for pride and draft picks. Kansas City sports fans are passionate. If the Chiefs were better than this, fans would not care about the economy or the weather. They’ll be more than happy to put on a few layers of clothing and go see their team win a game. Unfortunately, the Chiefs have understood why their fans have lost faith.

I understand that this is supposedly a “learning process.” But I don’t see what the team is learning from this. It’s not supposed to be like this.

If the Chiefs get blown out by divisional opponents and barely lose to bad teams, you’d expect that they could win this game. It’s very possible, but I’ll be honest, I don’t see it happening.

Do not doubt Josh Cribbs. He is in the top five among all NFL players who can play multiple positions. He can throw, run and catch a football. He’s also one of the most explosive special team returners out there. He could very well put together over 200 total net yards. The Browns may even use Cribbs as a decoy to help other players can open in the endzone. That is how valuable of an asset Cribbs can be.

Dwayne Bowe is coming back and several feel he can help the Chiefs. He has been a game changer that has scored three of his four touchdowns on either a potentially game-winning or tying drive.

I will be doing another blog tomorrow, but I promise you it will be something positive. Most of you probably know what I’ll be talking about. Browns win 27-17.

CHIEFS INACTIVES–QB Matt Gutierrez, WR Lance Long, G Brian Waters, DE Glenn Dorsey, T Ryan O’Callaghan, WR Bobby Wade, TE Sean Ryan and LB Pierre Walters

BROWNS INACTIVES–QB Brett Ratliff, DB Coye Francies, DB Ray Ventrone, LB David Veikune, OL Billy Yates, TE Greg Estandia, WR Jake Allen and DL Robaire Smith
