The Chiefs game plan in week one was horrible… Period.

Coach Reid failed to play to his strenghts, something he did so well last season and set up his quarterback in bad situations. After sitting back and looking at it, the Chiefs should have beaten the Tennessee Titans at home and should be 2-1 right now. But we’ll let that go.

Week two against Denver, Reid had to adjust with Jamaal Charles falling out of the game plan early in the first quarter. With Denver having an effective pass rush and a revamped secondary, you were lead to think that it was going to be a heavy dose of Jamaal Charles,


Reid got Alex Smith in a rhythm with his two tight ends, while also effectively using draws and counter plays to get his big powerful back, Knile Davis some space to move behind a struggling front five. Though the Chiefs didn’t win the game, they moved the ball extremely well and had their opportunities to beat a very good Broncos team.

So moving onto today, again with no Charles, Reid got creative in ways to utilize what he has ultimately going back to playing to his strengths. Though it started a bit rough (first three drives ended in a punt) he got the run game going by stacking tight ends to one side and creating cut back lanes for his runners.

I especially loved the inside trap play where Knile Davis scored from 20 yards out. He had A.J. Jenkins in the back field with Davis lined up off set. The line crashed down with one pulling man and BOOM! (Madden voice) you had a seal heyuh’ and a seal heyuh’ (Vince Lombardi voice) and Davis was off to the races.

There is no denying Andy Reids ability to call plays and getting a feel for how his team, and the game is being played out. He shined today and called a great game, which set his team up with a nice victory.
