PostSubject: Chiefs vs Dolphins   Tue Nov 01, 2011 10:44 am

Riding high off a great win, its the Dolphins on a short week. I think we have a real chance at the division. SD has Green Bay, Chicago, Oakland, Denver, Jacksy, Baltimore, Detroit, Raiders, left on their schedule. I dont think they will beat GB, Balti, or Detroit. The Raiders should get them in one of those games, hopefully. Chicago should give them a run.

We have Phins, Donks, Pats, Steelers, Bears, Jets, GB, Oakland, Donks. In the same way, I dont think we beat Pats, Steelers, GB. Hopefully the Chiefs will surprise me in one of those games. Everyone else is definately beatable. Its gonna be a close finish, and hopefully we will have SD on a tie breaker

Well there are five of us and we just bought the tickets a few days ago so our options were very limited. Like row 9 though in the nose bleeds behind one of the endzones. Its going to be different from my lower level season tickets I had on the 35 last year!

I have never sat in nose bleeds at Arrowhead, but I cant tell you that nose bleeds in the Rams stadium is a pretty decent seat! I was pleasantly surprised, of course the Rams stadium is newer as well.

1. Branden Albert had his worst game of the year. He gave up 2 pressures, a sack, had two penalties and a -4.4 rating. Thankfully his pass blocking wasn't TOO bad (-0.8), but that's a step back.

2. Barry Richardson was even worse. -9.9? Ugh. 3 pressures, 1 sack, GTFO my roster. 72nd rated OT.

3. Baldwin played 30 snaps, with 18 of them passing plays. That needs to go up. He beat Gilchrist on 4 of his 5 catches, though.

4. Hali and DJ were a one-man wrecking crew on defense. They combined for 10 stops, 4 pressures and 3 sacks. DJ had 7 of those stops. That is utterly ridiculous for one game. They also played 77 and 81 snaps.

5. Amon Gordon had a huge impact on this game with 4 stops in only 24 snaps.

6. Bustin Houston rushed 19 times and got 1 pressure.

7. McGraw was owned hard for 81 yards and missed 2 tackles.

8. Note on Baldwin: he has 4 drops already. Way too many.

9. Tyson Jackson and Glenn Dorsey are picking up their run defense. They are tied for 4th best among 3-4 DE.

10. Tamba Hali hit the #1 spot at OLB this week.

LOLphins notes:

Matt Moore has the best pocket presence in the league.

Their RT, Marc Colombo, is as bad as Barry Richardson.

Jake Long is having a poor season.

If we can block two guys this week - Cameron Wake and Randy Starks - we should be OK. The entire LOLphin secondary has a negative grade.

thats actually quite abit better with those OTs than i expected. It seemed like everything I looked one or both of the OTs was getting beat or bullrushed into Cassell. How about Jackson and Dorsey with that run defense? Hali deserves his ranking. Amon Gordon, i have talked about him before. Hes not looking to bad! Especially for a guy thats bounced around the league. It is highly disappointing that Houston is not getting the pass rush that I thought he would.

Yeah Houston needs to start helping Hali out a little more.

Kansas City, Derrick Johnson, linebacker: The underrated Johnson was terrific in the Chiefs’ win over the Chargers in Week 8. He had 16 tackles, a sack and an interception in the game as he was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week. This is the type of player who can take games over.

Man, our OL is horrible....Cassell just isn't talented enough to win with this line play...

Nothing like getting smoked by the worst team in the NFL, eh boys?

We had a chance to take a strangle hold on the West and they totally lay an egg....Great preparation there, Haley....

Announcers blaming the short week..You still have 6 freaking days to prepare for the Fins, for Christ sake..The Dolphins!!!!! Mad

Cassel fought hard and did what he can do, but are oline was horrible. And Defense also we so need better safety help. And our WRs whats up with the drops today. Well this game brings us back to reality. I still believe we can be competitive. But no way we win the AFC west with our remaining schedule.

The O line had allowed 5 sacks and 11 pressures early in the 3rd quarter. Cassell was getting hit well before he had time to set up. B Rich needs to be gone, his play was totally inexcusable today. Albert wasn't a hole lot better. The Defense missed McGraw and Arenas. Washington give up the 1st TD, Pisci and Washington just flat out sucked today. The D was strong up front most of the game until the whole team give up in the 4th. I previously remarked that I didn't think even Cassell could overthrow Baldwins leaping ability. I was wrong, Cassell was back to sailing balls 10 ft above everybodys head today. How in the hell do you lose a game like this to the Dolphins? I'm just baffled, they came out flat! They put so much emotion into the SD game, I guess they didn't have any left for this game.

Some drunk dude was leaning against a cone after the game, and fell and just laid there. My friend just ran up and tea bagged him. Then he would run through people taking pictures and just flip off the camera. We also brought a Panthers fan so it actually ended up being a fun time. Surprisingly the least upset I've been driving five and half hours home after a loss.

1. Jonathan Baldwin's snaps went up to 38 this week, with 32 on pass plays. Considering we had 55 passing snaps, that's not enough.

2. Branden Albert, Ryan Lilja and Casey Wiegmann are innocent. They all had positive grades (although Albert gave up 3 pressures). Your culprits are Jon Asamoah and Barry Richardson, although interestingly enough their pass blocking grades are not wildly horrible. Their run blocking was terrible though. Richardson allowed 4 QB pressures, Asamoah 3.

3. One guy no one is talking about: Jake O'Connell. His pass protection was terrible at a -2.7. Blitz pickup FAIL.

4. The only guy credited with allowing a sack was Matt Cassel. Which again points to the talk that the Dolphins simply brought more guys than we could block. Coaching fail.

5. Cassel was under pressure 16 times. On those plays he ran 7 times, completed no passes, and was sacked 5 times. Get me a new QB.

6. Nobody on defense had a green rating this week. That means everyone was average at best, and there is a lot of red on the page.

7. Interestingly enough, Jovan Belcher had a nice game with 7 stops.

8. We had 0 QB pressures.

9. Nobody in this game was good in coverage. Carr and Flowers were targeted 12 times, and gave up 10 catches for 129 yards. The Dolphins didn't throw at anyone else that much, although Studebaker, DJ, Pieceofshitty and Travis Daniels all gave up one big play each.

PFF's recap:

Quote:
Dolphins – Three Performances of Note

Showing Moore effort

What a turnaround for Moore in this game! Prior to Week 9, Moore’s highest passing grade was +2.0, while against the Chiefs it was +6.5. Moore was incredibly accurate with 17 of his 22 throws caught —discounting, batted passes, throwaways — with another two passes dropped, and did so without changing his aggressive approach. In fact, only two incompletions were from beyond ten yards and his 244 passing yards indicate a healthy 10.6 yards per attempt. Moore made the Chiefs pay for blitzing him, completing all five pass attempts against the blitz for 55 yards and two of his three touchdown passes. The former Panther didn’t feel any pressure all game and he responded with improved decision-making and remarkable accuracy. It’s too bad the Dolphins can’t have a perfect game in pass protection every game, because if this Moore was around every week, Chad Henne would have been long-forgotten by this point in the season.



Tight end make significant contributions

Anthony Fasano (+2.8) became the first Dolphins TE since 2008 to catch two touchdown passes in one game, when he caught them, and played a big role in the Dolphins win. After a disappointing first half of the season, Fasano turned in his best game of the year and made plays through the air and blocking in the run game. His second touchdown, at 9:55 in the second quarter, was the product of good play-design and execution as Moore rolls out to the right, freezing ILB Derrick Johnson up just long enough for the big TE to get behind him and stretch for the touchdown. Fasano is known more for his blocking than receiving skills, though, and he didn’t sacrifice the former for the latter in this game. He helped spring Bush (+2.2) for a touchdown in the third quarter with a key block on left OLB Tamba Hali (-2.4) on a reverse to his side.



Defensive standouts

Typically this spot would be reserved to discuss a poor performance or two, but when a previously winless team turns in a 31-3 road victory, it’s hard not to want to give credit rather than blame for once. In that spirit, let’s briefly look at a few standout defensive performances. DE Kendall Langford (+3.7) had his highest-graded output of the season thanks to five pressures of Matt Cassel. ILB Karlos Dansby (+2.7) was extremely active all over the field and finished with a sack, three tackles for loss, and a pair of tackles short of first-down yardage on third down, giving him a total of five defensive stops for the game. Kevin Burnett (+2.0) had his best game of the season for the second week in a row and is starting to look like the player Miami expected to get when they signed him. For those looking to find fault with the team’s first win, look to the secondary, where rookie CB Jimmy Wilson (-3.6) and veteran safety Yeremiah Bell (-1.1) combined for five penalties. Wilson’s penalties were pass interference calls he supplemented with a couple missed tackles. Bell was the victim of a poor unnecessary roughness call, but the other two were his own doing.



Chiefs: Three Performances of Note

Oh my, O’Connell

After seeing the contributions of Fasano and Clay up close and personal, have the Chiefs felt the loss of Tony Moeaki more sharply than now? It doesn’t help that their own TEs didn’t play too well in this one. Leonard Pope (-1.3) didn’t have a good game by any means, but the true offender was Jake O’Connell. O’Connell (-3.8) was graded negatively in every facet we grade players, and when you play 57 snaps and don’t perform well in any capacity, you’re likely to play a big part in a team’s loss and grace the virtual pages of our Re-focused articles, or worse, Khaled’s “Had a Bad Day” articles. Besides being a non-factor as a receiver, O’Connell allowed three pressures of Cassell in only 14 pass-block attempts and drew a holding penalty. The sting is that much more painful with Fasano’s big day on the other side.



Problems in Washington’s D, see

The Chiefs have suffered some bad performances at the safety position this year, but Donald Washington’s (-4.0) game against the Dolphins ranks up there. Washington didn’t record a tackle, but he did miss two, although one was erased through an unrelated penalty. The penalty was a stroke of luck for Washington, as his missed tackle of Bush allowed Bush to run free down the sideline for significant extra yardage all the way down near the five-yard line. He also bit on a play-fake that allowed Fasano to sneak into the back of the end zone for his first touchdown catch, uncontested. Additionally, Washington committed a costly unnecessary roughness penalty for a late hit on Bush after he was stopped for a short gain that would have led to 3rd-and-6 at the Dolphins own eight-yard line. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the recipe for an all-around poor game.



Where’s the rush?

Again, normally this paragraph would serve to remind that it’s not all bad when a team loses and that there are strong performances in almost any defeat. In this game, though, it’s far more relevant to continue discussing the poor performances than to ignore them to discuss a performance that had far less impact on the game. The root of the problem for the Chiefs in this game was their inability to get any pressure whatsoever. It’s not uncommon for the Chiefs defense to struggle to get pressure outside of Tamba Hali (-2.4), but when Hali is shut down as he was, somebody else has to step up. They did not and Moore, a QB who typically struggles under pressure, was able to sling the ball around care-free. Hali actually had more penalties called against him than he did pressures, a feat that certainly doesn’t occur very often. Despite their inability to get any pressure in this game, the Chiefs only called five blitzes. That number will need to increase if the Chiefs continue to struggle to get to the opposing quarterback.



Game Notes

- Thanks mainly to their collective perfect game in pass protection, the entire Dolphins offensive line outside of right guard Vernon Carey (-0.6) graded in the green, marking the first time right tackle Marc Colombo has done so all season.

- In 16 drop-backs under pressure, Cassel took off running seven times, absorbed five sacks, and completed none of the four passes he actually got off.

- Bush’s strong game marked the first time he’s graded in the green in back-to-back games since weeks 2-3 of 2008 season.

PFF Game Ball

Quarterbacking a winless team to a victory takes enough grit to warrant consideration for this award regardless, but Matt Moore’s impressive display erases all doubt.

Screw the guy that wrote that article and his stupid ass grades. Pass Pro doesn't get much worse that it was Sunday. Somebody was coming on every damn play. G's and T's were terrible in my opinion. Richardson was the worst, then Albert, then Aso.
