PROPS and DROPS from the Broncos dominating win over the Chiefs on Sunday-
PROPS: One of the oldest and lamest misconception/cliche about football in this part of the country is that you have to be able to run the ball late in the season. Ahh yes, because every game in November adn December will be played in a swirling blizzard that turns any airborn object (footballs included) into Jasper's cow caught in a tornado. However, the crappy day and colder conditions in Arrowhead made it a perfect day to run the football, and the Donks did just that to the tune of 200+ yards. Corell Buckhalter and Knowshon Moreno sliced their way to huge gains throughout the game., keeping the Chief defense in the cold and getting gassed. The OL didn't miss a beat when Ryan Harris again went out and Tyler Polumbus came back in to pave the way.
DROPS: If the rumors that Coach McD really wanted Matt Cassell in the off season we better give him a mulligan. Cassell had a horrendous day, so much so that Brodie Croyle had a better passer rating from his fake punt attempt pass. Granted, he had a handful of drops and his WRs aren't exactly Mark Duper and Marc Clayton, but he was bouncing passes, overthrowing guys and weakly throwing into coverage. And dammit, why everytime I see his name it reminds me of Sam Cassell?
PROPS: Arrowhead Stadium: plenty of good upper level seats available. Arrowhead Stadium 4th quarter: plently of seats everywhere available, and park right in front of the stadium.
PROPS: Andre Goodman had a great game opposite of Champ Bailey, and given Champ's brain fart on the early deep, Goodman might've been the backfield MVP with his pick and fumble return. Throw in Renaldo Hill's INT and Brian Dawkins run support (Leonard Pope going through him notwithstanding) and the DBs had a stellar day.
PROPS: The highlight or lowlight of the game for the Chiefs was a 20 play drive that resulted in three points. The Chiefs offense went stupid in the Red Zone and Dawkins came up with two huge plays to limit them to the FG. In effect, game over at this point. Nothing is more deflating than controlling the ball and keeping the Donk runners on the sideline and getting a measly three points.
DROPS: Kyle Orton had a very pedestrian type day with his tunrovers and the running game working so well. The first INT could've been avoided with a more over the top pass to Tony Scheffler, but instead might've set the tone for Orton's day. However, the most important stat for Orton was the win.
