SHOW TOPICS:

Episode #260 crew: Vince Quinn, John Barchard

What we’re looking at:


The Chiefs had a fantastic game against the New England Patriots but it is getting blown way out of proportion.


The Chiefs' offense has a lot diversity in the running game and it really complements Travis Kelce


The tempo of Kansas City is short plays for big yards. Alex Smith threw for the most yards of his career last season 3,502.

Last year the Chiefs were 20th total yards, 25th in passing attempts and 13th in point scored.


Keys for the Eagles Defense: Set the edge, linebackers need to bring it hard, and the pass rush needs make Alex Smith humble quickly. This offense can be death by a thousand paper cuts if the Eagles can’t throw off the timing early.

The speed of the Chiefs wide receivers look like a real problem for the Eagles secondary. Will Jim Schwartz be just as aggressive as last week or will we see more zone than man?

Chiefs Defense last season: 24th in total yards. Allowed 4.4 ypc --- 24th, 7th in points allowed, 1st in turnovers (18 INT, 15 fumbles). 6 INTs from Marcus Peters alone.

Eagles Offense: Zach Ertz. Ertz Ertz Ertz Ertz Ertz and Ertz. With Eric Berry out Pederson needs to be aggressive and Wentz needs to hit a deep ball this time.

The Eagles might need to establish a running game, but don’t expect it to just suddenly work.

John thinks it’s time to take the Honda out for a spin and give him 5-7 carries this week. He wants to see Corey Clement over Wendell Smallwood.

Eagles matchup pretty well in the trenches on both sides, they need to win short yardage battles especially with a new kicker.
