    Ben or no Ben that was some terrible offense tonight

    Credit the Chiefs, they were playing inspired, desperate football. They sold out to stop the run and for the most part they were successful. Mike Wallace was invisible after that TD catch, Sanders dropped some but had the big first down late in the game. Cotchery wasn't looked too very often.

    Leftwich gets very few snaps during the week but they continued to try and throw because the Chiefs were selling out to stop the run. He was clearly rusty.

    The max protect schemes were terrible, Ben and Lefty were under a lot of pressure and consequently no one was getting open either. Hell they couldn't even block a 3 man rush a few times.

    It was ugly, damn ugly but it's a win.

    Ben 9/18 for 84 yds, 1 TD. 3 near interceptions too on underthrown passes.
    Leftwich 7/14 73 yds.

    Dwyer - 19 rushes 56 yds
    Redman - 8 rushes 21 yds

    Heath 4 catches 47 yds
    Sanders 2 catches 30 yds
    Wallace 3 catches 14 yds 1 TD.

    My main concern: Running the ball t convert on 3rd downs. That was pathetic tonight. The steelers could have iced the game in the 4th. What do they do? Run it out of shotgun formation. They couldnt even get 2 ****ing yards.

    Yeah, it's a win. One of those can't do anything right nights for the O.
    D stepped up. They won this tonight. If we have to rely on Leftbitch I
    shudder to watch in the coming weeks. Time to draft a young gun backup
    sooner then later with this team. Hopefully Ben will be o.k.

    Everyone was invisible. Tough weather to score in regardless, but you take Ben out and put in Leftwich who looked like a f*cking rookie, you aren't going to score. Ben just overthrew Wallace on a sure TD, and Leftwich overthrew Wallace on two open deep balls. Ben and the offense were just starting to gel before he got hurt.

    Any offense will have a game like this, even without their future hall of fame QB going out with an injury. Luckily the defense (outside of Ziggy f*cking Hood) showed up tonight.

    This team was NOT ready to play tonight. They were sloppy and getting blown off the ball all too often on both sides of the line.

    Let's not forget that AB was also out. That's basically taking out 1/3 of all offensive power.

    False. Ziggy Hood was getting blown off the ball. There's a reason why they ran to the right 750 straight plays. That was absolutely disgusting. There's no reason he should be starting.
