    I am getting so tired of this. It's turning me away from watching football.

    I don't believe dynasties are good for the league. I was not a fan of the Cowboys or 49ers' runs either. Kudos to them. Great job, but undesirable for the majority of the fans.

    Why would it turn you away from watching football? I get it sucks they are in our division, hell the AFC in general but if Miami ever wants to be true contenders, they will have to beat the Patriots at their best. From a overall football standpoint, a lot of people are disgusted with the Patriots greatness but you have to be able to stand back and see what they are doing in a salary cap driven sport, superstars, physical sport that any player can be lost on any given play, etc is nothing short of great. When BB is gone, their grip on the Super Bowl trophy will loosen up, but then again if Matt Patricia is left the job with as long as he been around BB, idk.

    Far from a Patriots lover so nobody can take it that way, but what BB does is mind blowing and one day fans will look back and say wow.

    People overreacting after just the first drive. New England defense looks suspect, epecially up front.

    How ironic is that statement. LOL

    Reid is an excellent playcaller and had a very good script for the Chief's first drive. The true challenge will come when the coaches adjust and have to go off script.

    Easy to forget that this Chiefs team was 12-4 last year too.

    How is Alex Smith a starter in this league for these many years is beyond me. The guy absolutely cannot throw 10+ yards passes if his life depended on it.

    Reid is 41-20 running a spread offense with RO's, and RPO's headed up by a QB with a limited arm but possess mobility.

    Everything that "anonymous sources" say can't be done in the NFL yet they the Chief's offense has been in the top half (and even top 10 twice) in the 4 years Smith has been there.

    Coaching and scheme matters. That's how.

    IN SPITE of the QB is what you're saying? Also, it seems like when they come up against a team that can score points and put pressure on them offensively like a Patriots. Well, we get a game that looks like this...

    Correct. Exactly what I was saying.

    And the "anonymous sources" was a dig at the POS Albert Breer. No one here.

    That deep pass looked good, maybe even better than another QB whose name I will not mention.

    Refs deciding games really has to stop. Chiefs called for everything when Pats oline is holding every possession.

    That Kelce penalty, hope Gase puts that on display this week. Cant have those completely avoidable momentum killers we've seen too much of since god knows when.

    It's impossible to win in Cheatsboro. Penalties against the opposition there is just insane on every little thing.

    The officiating in this game is absolutely ridiculous. I don't know if my hatred of the pats just blinds me, but part of me genuinely feels like the NFL is turning into the WWE. I've lost track of the amount of holds the pats offensive line has gotten away with. Meanwhile, the yellow flags are flying every other play against the chiefs. It's like the refs aren't even attempting to masquerade the fact they're calling a biased game - they're not even hiding it.

    The pats seem to have a weak pass rush this year. Smith has had some time to get the ball off tonight.

    Man I'm not sure what game you're watching, but Smith is playing like a gangster tonight. 4-0 td/int, an almost perfect quarterback rating, smart with the football, a great two minute drive to end the first half and put points on the board, some smart runs, two deep dimes he dropped way down the field.

    People like to **** on Smith. And yes, I get it, he's not elite. But he's a damn good quarterback despite his limitations. And for all the dink and dunk complaints, he's looking pretty fearless pushing the ball down the field tonight.

    Few things have crossed my mind since the opening 15minutes.. It's the first game of the year but damn the pass rush not being there seems really weird when it comes to the Pats but then again they really scheme pressure, for whatever reason it's not there right now. Could be first game of the year, injuries(which I know BB won't accept as reason). At the same time though, last few times KC has faced the Patriots, the Chiefs have put up decent numbers.

    Either way, I can easily see a trade for a pass rusher(maybe not a star power name, but somebody they can scheme with) by trade deadline.

    Pat's are not looking good, but something to keep in mind:

    '14 we hung 33 pts on them in the opener, the Chiefs scored 41pts on them in week 4, and they started the season 2-2 with a lot of talk about their dynasty finally coming to an end.

    So as delighted as we might get over this game, they adjust better than any team in the NFL as the season progresses.

    It'll shut up all the undefeated talk I keep hearing up here in New England. Talked with several people who put money on 16-0 and 19-0 this year.

    They lost too much as far as pass rushers go:

    No more Chris Long
    Ealy was a bust of an acquisition
    Ninkovich retired
    Their first 1st rd pick DE out for the season.

    New England has a weakness, but you need an O-line to give your QB time to exploit it. Hopefully Miami is paying close attention tonight.

    Gronk looks like he's gotten lazy. Looks sluggish, maybe it's just his first real action is so long or the injuries are catching up but he just practically begs for a flag every time he can't get open.

    Love all the excuses they're handing out for New England getting gashed instead of just crediting Kansas City for executing tonight.

    Good ol' power sweep to seal the game, and an inside zone run to put it out of reach. Great blocking.

    Maybe so but one thing for sure this isn't the best team NE has had since 07 like alot of people where hyping them to be. Especially on the defensive side.
