View Full Version : Do you double Dewayne Bowe or simply focus on Jamaal Charles?

The Chiefs don't have very many legitimate weapons on offense but the obvious big two are Bowe and Charles. I think they are 3rd in the league in rushing but their passing is just beyond bad because Cassell is hardly anything to write home about; 25th overall in the league.

Do you just put Ike on Bowe and focus all the rest of your efforts on the run game?

Just have to be careful in this one, if you play the way you're capable of then you should win pretty easily. If you think even for a second that this is a walk in the park then we're in trouble because we play down to our competition way too often as we all know.

I think you force Cassell to beat you. Focus on the run game and try and keep Bowe covered with Lewis and Ike.

Focus on stopping Charles and getting pressure/hits on the QB. If we do that, it's a blowout.

On a side note, being from Sout Bend, I hope Quinn gets to start. Would love to see this defense make his life a living nightmare.

Play 8 in the box constantly, if we get beat by Cassel or Quinn at home, we dont deserve to be a wildcard spot lol

@AdamSchefter: RT @adamteicher: Quinn has not been cleared to play. Cassel will start at QB vs. steelers

You take Charles away........this forces Cassell to carry the entire offense. We know Cassell can't carry the entire offense so he will be throwing picks, fumbling the ball, and giving our offense extra possessions. We just need to score on those extra possessions and we win the game easily.

Cassell is leading the league in turnovers or he's in the top three so we just need to put the pressure on him by taking away everything around him. Stopping Charles is the key to our success. Everything else will fall into place once we do that.

Agree with the majority. Shut down Charles, win the game.

Charles is a much better runner than Cassel is a passer so I say stop Charles and bracket Bowe the way the Steelers bracketed AJ Green. This not a sell out to stop the run defense like they played vs Tebow last year, but the emphasis should be on stopping the run and getting pressure in Cassel's face.

There's no way Cassel can put this team on his shoulder and carry them to a win without Charles running the ball effectively. Jamaal is a much better runner than Benjarvus Green Ellis so they have to be careful about him but overall the two teams are very similar. The Chiefs are like the Bengals in that they have a good RB, 1 good WR, and 1 good TE. The gameplan they used against Cincy should work nicely against KC.

At the beginning of the game I would focus on Charlies, but after we score on our first two positions, I would unlease the dogs on their QB

We spent tons of time in the dime against the Bengals because Green-Ellis couldnt beat us, Charles can as the Saints found out. I think the opposite game plan would work. Stay in the base defense as much as possible and go after Cassell.

I would definitely focus on stopping Charles. That kid is an explosive player and we can't let him get going. I think Ike can handle Dwayne Bowe...he shut down A.J. Green no problem earlier in the year. It's all about execution on his part.

Why not Put Keneen on Bowe all day and see if he's as good as guys are making him out to be? ... good way to see if he's ready to be that number 1
