I think I mentioned it in another thread. Kc is the AFC equivalent of the nfc rams. Both have high powered offense and a defense predicated on explosive plays /turnovers by the dline. Other than that their defenses flat out suck. Atrocious backfields overall.

What happens when teams built like that meet good defenses, yet can't create explosive plays with their dline? They fizzle and lose some games.

The Ravens don't have a high powered offense, yet their defense is stout in all areas, even though they are only 31st in creating turnovers. They give their offense extra possessions repeaedly. And they almost gave kc a loss.

The bears did the same thing to the Rams and succeeded in beating them.

The Andy Reid style of team building doesn't look like enough to get things done so far IMO. We shall see if patty is really superman in the playoffs, cuz he's gonna have to carry kc with that defense. We already know Goff can't do that.

I guess the idea about D-lines making up for a team's secondary is a myth. Something a lot of people who watch football say.

The Chiefs, Rams, and Steelers have a better D-line than us. Yet the Chargers have better numbers and stats than them. And I've bagged on our D-line for not being that good. Just goes to show you that any weak area on a team's defense will lower your level of play.

If they lose Tyreek Hill, they are in full fizzle.

Too bad indeed. That was a critical loss. We had home field and the #1 seed right in the palm of our hands. Choked it away with a piss poor performance. I hope it doesn’t haunt us but this is another Charger grasp defeat from the jaws of victory moment
