Cincinnati Bengals (4-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-8) Almost every year, we have one team go from in the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. Right now, every playoff team from last year has at least 4 wins. That means one of two things. We’re not going to have a team like that this year (only happened 1 other time in the last decade) or either Detroit, New Orleans, or Cincinnati is about to go 1-6 in their next 7 games. I’m sticking with the latter for now and I think the Bengals are going to be that team. The Bengals still do not impress me, ranking just 20th in rate of sustaining drives differential, with an even yards per play differential. They’ll probably only be favored in 2 of their remaining 7 games, so it’s possible. That would mean that the Bengals will have to get upset by either the Chiefs or the Raiders in the next 2 weeks. Can they lose here to the Chiefs? As weird as it may sound, they can. Neither of these teams is really in a good spot. The Bengals beat the Giants as home d...

WDW Episode 89 – A Giant Win for the Bengals Hopes

The Bengals got a huge boost this weekend with a huge or shall we say, GIANT, win over the G-Men 31-13 Sunday at PBS. The tone was set early as Andy “Red” Dalton ended the game with an early strike to AJ Green to go up 7-0. Guess he had a pretty good idea about the size of those holes in the Giants secondary. Thank god we have the best WR in the game. Next up for the Bengals...

Dwayne Bowe wants to stay in Kansas City

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe says he wants to stay with the Kansas City Chiefs and doesn’t want to play anywhere else, even though before the season started there was a report that he wanted out of Kansas City. “Why wouldn’t I want to stay here? It’s a no-brainer for me,” said Bowe, per the Kansas City Star. “I never said I didn’t want to be here. I never said that. This...

Cassel to start at QB for Chiefs vs Bengals

Matt Cassel will start at quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday against Cincinnati because Brady Quinn still has not been cleared to play following a concussion. Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said that Quinn feels better and that he could be cleared by the end of the week, but he couldn't take the chance that he wouldn't be ready for the Bengals. As a result, Cassel...

Chiefs' draft history big reason for 1-8 record

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli has often said free agency is a flawed way to build a team, where players available are often overpriced or on the downward side of their careers. Sure, it's always necessary to sign a couple guys to plug holes, but Pioli would much rather draft the right guys, develop them from within the organization, and generate the...

Watch Kansas City Chiefs Safety Eric Berry Be Afraid Of Horses

Football players are big and tough, but we all have our fears. I, for instance, have acrophobia — a fear of heights. Eric Berry of the Kansas City Chiefs has equinophobia — a fear of... [[ Read More ]]

Chiefs Will Start Matt Cassel Against Cincinnati

Adam Teicher reports that the Kansas City Chiefs will start Matt Cassel against the Bengals this weekend. Head coach Romeo Crennel mentioned that Brady Quinn still hasn’t been cleared by doctors, despite the fact that Quinn, himself, told reporters that he was in fact medically cleared. In the big picture, it probably doesn’t matter who will be under center for the Chiefs...

Romeo Crennel halts Chiefs’ dance parties

For a one win team the Kansas City Chiefs sure know how to dance. Actually dancing may be the only thing the Chiefs can do well this season. Sadly head coach Romeo Crennel does not seem impressed. Crennel who recently fired himself as the teams defensive coordinator has put the brakes on the Chiefs dancing ways. So where did all the dancing come from? “I have no idea,” Crennel...

Romeo Crennel on Chiefs dancing: ‘I don’t expect it to happen again’

The Kansas City Chiefs have been featured in several headlines already this week, and as you know there is nothing positive to say about their on-field performance this season. During Monday night’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Chiefs were dancing machines. They were penalized for excessive celebration on a touchdown that ended up not counting. Dwyane Bowe was penalized...

Bengals-Chiefs Preview

After gaining a much-needed boost of confidence, the Cincinnati Bengals have a prime chance to lift their playoff hopes. The Bengals would appear to have a favorable schedule over the next few weeks, beginning with Sunday's visit to the beleaguered Kansas City Chiefs. Just when it seemed that it might continue its historic trend of inconsistency, Cincinnati pulled off a decisive...
